Track Name: Party With Me
I could tell you of my true love baby
But I won't be made a fool of baby
Is the truth that I'm too bored and lazy now
To walk up to your door?

No, there's something in the heart of me
Or is it too many empty carbs in me?
That the love I held most guardedly
should be swallowed through and through
I could make you mine if you only knew
Everything I mean most tenderly
in "Come party with me"

So tell me how we met again
Was it online or through a friend?
I can't remember to back then
Because the camera's fuzzed
I only hope this night won't end

Come party with me
Come party with me
Come party with me
'Cause party dreams
They don't come free
Track Name: Losing My Head
Got your degree
Then fell asleep
Lost in a dream
Your tape collection, your ennui
They don't agree

Don't lose your head
That's what she said
Read what you read
The road you're on you've damn well tread

What you want me to say
Congratulations, runaway
What you want to say
Congratulations, you're okay

Don't lose your head
That's what she said
Read what you read
The road you're on will leave you dead

The game don't change
You're still a pawn in play
And you remain
You wander everyday
Track Name: Blissed Out
Lie down next to me
And listen carefully
You've got me talking in my sleep
You've got me grinding down my teeth

But do I look alright
in the candy-colored sky?
Feeling blissed out and just fine
Now I know why

You can't believe what you can't perceive
You hold the key, and everyone sees
So I must concede that we won't ever agree

Lie down next to me
And whisper quietly
'Cause I've been trying hard to sleep
And it's been over a week

But do I look alright
with my coffee-colored eyes?
Feeling blissed out and just fine
Now I know why

So why do you pretend
it's written in your pen?
I cannot comprehend what you believe
Why don't realize
it's written in your eyes?
And all your pretty lies ain't fooling me
Track Name: Hollywood, FL
You know I am just a lonely little boy
Is your love a gift or is it just another ploy?
Felicitaciones, me dices
But you put all my money in leases
I'm hoping there are plenty of beaches for us to surf

Hollywood, FL
Calling you from Hollywood, FL
Dreams of you in Hollywood, FL
Make it big in Hollywood, FL

You know that I have gone and torn my heart in two
The ventricles for me and the atria for you
Felicitaciones, me dices
But you're tearing my heart into pieces
At least there are plenty of beaches but I can't surf

You knew that I was just a lonely little boy
But then you took my heart with just another ploy
Felicitaciones, me dices
But you tore up my heart into pieces
I wanna go back to the beaches of my home turf

When you're stuck in Hollywood, FL
You are stuck in Hollywood, FL
Dreams of you in Hollywood, FL
Get me out of Hollywood, FL
Track Name: Soda Pop
I'm a grown ass man and I've got my needs
And when I strut my stuff, people cross the street
'Cause they don't understand my point-of-view
But soon they'll know my game and so will you

Gimme soda pop
Gimme soda pop
I'll drink your soda pop
I'll drink it 'til I drop
Gimme soda pop
Gimme soda pop
I'll drink your soda pop
And my heart won't ever stop

And my honey boo, she's crazy too
She's got my name and face on her face tattooed
We've got ourselves a carbonated love
32 fluid ounces can't shake the buzz

I know that I should say no
But I can't control
I shake it, shake it baby
I'm gonna explode

People stop and stare and look confused
I try hard to explain, but it's no use
But you can join the gang if you want to
Just bring your bottle caps and dancing shoes
Track Name: Dirty Kids
I fell off my bike
Got into a fight
And lost all my teeth

Then put me in jail
And posted my bail
But I stayed inside

'Cause I'm dirty kid
And I'm a lazy kid
And I'm an ugly kid
And I'm glamorous

And I'm dirty kid
And I'm a lazy kid
And I'm an ugly kid
And I'm dangerous

I marched all day long
Singing my song
And fought off the dogs

I marched for my rights
Didn't take no one's shit
And now y'all know my name
Track Name: Vibe With You
You don't even know the time of day
Sun is out, but still the sky is grey
Watching reruns just to stay awake
And you can't control me stay away

If you'd understand where I have been,
Then you'd understand the state I'm in
'Cause you're looking like Winona's twin
In the reruns that would spell a win

I think that I could vibe with you
So tell me if the vibe is true
Oh, tell me what am I to do
So we can vibe the night away
Or I'll just cry the night away

Now it's been too long and I am sick
Eating every last potato chip
Then you tell me you're the birthday kid
Please come over, it'll be a hit
Track Name: Ocean Beach
And it happens at night
Look at the way

Whenever I close my eyes
Look at the waves

Crazy swells in my mind
Leave me happy all the time
Crazy swells in my mind
They keep me up at night

Then I walk across town
Look at the bay
Track Name: Goodbye
Can't take this anymore
Slowly creeping through the floor
Everybody knows it's all my fault
And I can't live between these walls

And if you know right now
Then tell me something to make me feel right
'Cause right now I know nothing won't make feel nice
So why not say goodbye?

And it's just such a drag
To give back all that you had
Everybody knows it's much too late
The bank is drawn, you owe the state
