Track Name: Running Out
. RUNNING OUT They’ve got you running out and running on, oh no no no no no. They’ve got you thinking bad and talking loud. Never going back, back, not this time. They’ve got you singing songs about you now, oh no no no no no. They’ve got you dying young and growing old. Never going back, back, not this time. You must be thinkin’ ‘bout crime again, oh no no no no no. You must be doing time for past lives. They’ve got you running out and running on, oh no no no no no. They’ve got you talking loud and thinking bad. Not this time
Track Name: Heartbreak
HEARTBREAK Just let me know when you take off. That’s when I’ll be stepping on out. I can’t believe you listened to what I say. I truly want you to stay. It’s a heartbreak. I hope you land you get some sun. I hope you don’t end up with a bum. I might not stay in this town. If you come back I won’t be around. It’s a heartbreak.
Track Name: Strange Feelings
STRANGE FEELINGS You got a man who will always call. You got a man who is never late. You got a man that never fights. You got a man that does you right. It doesn’t matter to him so it doesn’t matter to you so it doesn’t matter. I got a man who will never call. I got a man who is always late. I got a man who sleeps alone. I got a man who does me wrong. It doesn’t matter to him so it doesn’t matter to me so it doesn’t matter. You got a man, my man.
Track Name: Spit Hiss
SPIT HISS He comes from money and it’s not his fault. He got everything he wanted without any qualms. This boy will not drown. He comes from a pencil and not a pen. He can erase everything he writes down. This boy will not drown. He comes from a car and not a cab. So much money can cover up despicable things. This boy will not drown. He comes from money. It’s not his fault. He comes from a car with spit in his hiss.
Track Name: Ramones Ct.
RAMONES CT. She’s on your mind so you’re going down. It breaks your heart so you better lay down. You’ll toss and turn cause you’re going round and round. It wakes you up because you know this town. What’s it gonna be tonight? Is it drink or is it fight? She doesn’t know by now but you need to drink too. She’s on your mind cause she stands alone. It breaks your heart because you know she’s gone. You’ll toss and turn cause she’s going round and round. It wakes you up cause you know this town.
Track Name: Wrong
WRONG How do you say you’re sorry in a song? What do you say to them when it’s been so long? It’s so hard to admit when you’re wrong. How do you live with yourself when everything’s gone? How do you plead for forgiveness with forgotten lungs? It’s so hard to admit when you’re wrong. How do you say you’re sorry?
Track Name: Simple Shining
SIMPLE SHINING They don’t want you to be unique so you’re done and you’re gone. They might want to call you a thief so you’re shunned and you’re shined. I know you need someone to blame. They pray to a poltergeist so you’re hexed and you’re jinxed. You’re a patsy in their belief so you’re doomed and you’re booed. I know you need someone to blame. It’s a letter from the Salem police and you’re burned and you’re scorned. They wish that you were deceased, embalmed and entombed.
Track Name: Road To Los Angeles
ROAD TO LOS ANGELES L.A., well I love it. Better watch, better watch out. L.A., well I loathe it. Better shut, better shut your mouth. Aw yeah, I don’t know. Northwest, well I love it. Better watch, better watch out. Northwest, well I hate it. Better shut, better shut your mouth. Aw yeah, I don’t know. Palm trees create no shade. Roads that lead nowhere. Gray skies that never fade. Old growths create wet socks. Back home, well I love it. Better watch, better watch out. Back home, I despise it. Better shut, better shut your mouth. Aw yeah, I don’t know. West coast.
Track Name: Gotcha
GOTCHA Quit. It’s not enough. Yeah, it’s not enough. Quit. You’re not that tough. Yeah, you’re not that tough. They’re not gonna comp you the tickets so you better just walk on home. They’re not gonna give you the money so you better pedal on home. They got you now, oh boy. Quit. It’s not enough. Yeah, it’s not enough. Quit. You’re not that tough. Yeah, you’re not that tough. They’re not gonna sing you the praises so you better just pack it on up. They kids aren’t buying any records so you better just close up shop. They got you now, oh boy.
Track Name: Piano Hands
PIANO HANDS Climb up on top of a roof top and see this town just eat itself. They want to start a revolution but how can they when they have no hope? You, you’ve got nothing to prove so swallow your pride. Mediocre egocentric shot his foot right out of the gate. He thought he could save the city with a stolen bag of out of tune notes. You, you’ve got nothing to prove so swallow your pride. Nothing worse than wishful thinking, wishing this would magically change. Don’t worry, the city was dying before you watched it eat itself. You, you’ve got nothing to prove so swallow your pride.
Track Name: New Creeps
NEW CREEPS They talk in whispers and they breathe through their teeth. Set their kids off to school in disgrace so the portugeuse sailor can leave in peace. Yeah they want to start a fight so knuckle up and make things right. And so on. They talk in their sleep and they sweat when they eat. Salt and pepper their food til it’s paste. Well, black hearts never had any taste. Yeah they want to start a fight so knuckle up and make things right. And so on. Yeah they want to blame us all and there might be some trouble and there could be some problems but it’s nothing, nothing at all. At all. They laugh in groups and they choke on their spit. Only funny thing you said that hit was what you said had no charm or wit. Yeah they want to start a fight so knuckle up and make things right. And so on.
Track Name: Big Dream
BIG DREAM He left town cause the month he was born to get his face beat in by an Armenian gang. Went down south to make the minions laugh. Ended up with inspirational quotes. His big dream’s a pipe dream. Went back home to find truth to his life. Is he tough enough for a Peruivian band? Went up north to make love to his wife. Ended up with a crippled disease. His big dream’s a pipe dream.
Track Name: Street Credit
STREET CREDIT Better believe it. They’re comin’ after your ma. Better believe it. They’re comin’ after your pa. You need it, ya, but they own it all. Better believe it. They’re comin’ after your ma. Better believe it. They’re comin’ after your pa. You need it, ya, but they own it all. Phoney bond. Polluted rate. Empty credit. They are looking for the poorest ones. You want it all. Phoney love. Polluted dreams. Empty trust. They are looking for the lonely ones. Better believe it. Street credit.
