Track Name: Streems
I’m not locked down/ I don't owe no one a favor
Word on the street that you're gonna meet someone any day now
But I know/ that you’re out of control/ oh I know you sad little boy

I lost my way/ I lost my mind on a sunny day
Word on the street that there’s something really happening
You sit around your home all alone you sad little boy

I lost my mind (I lost my way) but I don’t see a problem anyway (anyway you want it)
Word on the street that there’s something really happening
But I know that you’re out of control/ oh I know you sad little boy
Track Name: ACL
Well you're all fucked up and you’re own your own
I tore my acl/ now I’m broke as hell, getting fat and old
I put my game face on and say yo wha oh

Such a hell of a thing/ to chase pussy with a diamond ring (well how the hell are ya) such a beautiful fact/ tell me what you’re on and I’ll show you where its at i said a yo wha oh

I only love you always/ I thought that crazy people only wanted me/ I wanna tell you that you’re so in love with me

well you’re all fucked up and yer on yer own, I don’t know/ I tore my acl/ now I’m gross as a motherfucker can’t you tell (I only love you)

Such a hell of a thing/ to chase pussy with a diamond ring (well how the hell are ya) such a beautiful fact/ tell me what you’re on and I’ll show you where its at I said a yo wha oh

I only love you always/ I thought that crazy people only wanted me/ I wanna tell you that you’re so in love with me/ I get so faded when I hate that self of mine/ I’m disappearing cause I’m faded all the time
Track Name: Soft Love
I never knew someone like you could make me blue/ In just a moment or two
but I’m stuck in the times, you could call it what you want/ I’m losing my marbles and it’s all in my phone

I’ll keep it simple now/ I’ll keep it gold/ I’ll keep it so you’d never wanna be alone

Move so slowly/ Oh is there anybody else/ Sometimes I get to feel it
Move so slowly/ You’ve got me thinking ‘bout your health

It’s nothing wrong/its nothing new/ this might sound crazy but it’s killing me/ all the way in the field/ you could call it lack of motive (love)

Move so slowly/ Oh is there anybody else/ Sometimes I get to feel it
Move so slowly/ You’ve got me thinking ‘bout your health

And I really wanna make sure I know how the hell to know/ when to take the situation leave it and go/ how to change a made mind/ but it doesn't matter/ it's harder when you try because I'm stuck in the times/ and it doesn't matter
Track Name: The Physical Attractions
Take your time
Listen to the song we wrote
And it could change your mind
When you hear it on the radio
I’m getting blackout drunk tonight
Said you don’t know where the good dope grows
But I get flame all the time
Just call me on the phone and you can always swing by

Cause I’d rather be at home playing video games
With the people that I’ve known since the glorious age
Cause every now and then I just don’t feel the same
Said you don’t know instead you swing low

I get high
I get low
If my heart stops beating
Will you let me know

I don’t know what your mind is going through
But I’m coming up dizzy just trying to love you
I know oh oh I know

Lights out/ I fuckin know what you’re saying
We’ll give it all away now/ we’ll give it all the way home
We’re gonna give it away now/ we’re gonna give it on home

[chorus]

I don't know what your mind is going through
But I'm coming up dizzy just trying to love you
I know oh oh oh oh

If you need fast cash in a flash you see
Front a sack flip it bring the rest back to me
I know oh oh oh oh
Track Name: Creeper
How long’s it been since you've been gone
I sleep with the lights left on
I used to have a different life and I don't have it anymore

Lying what’s the use of trying
Lying what’s the use of trying

How long’s it been since you've been gone
I sleep with the lights left on

It’s all the same/ ooooh
Dulls the pain/ ooooh

How long’s it been since you've been gone
I sleep with the lights left on
I used to have a different life and I don't have it anymore

Lying what’s the use of trying
Lying what’s the use of trying

Love me sober love me lame/ I fell down when you're in my lane
Lying what’s the use of trying/ when you're in my way
When you’re in my lane
Track Name: Based
Well this might sound mean and it might be rough
But in my eyes you just don't mean anything much
Well you might talk slick and you might act tough
In my eyes you don't mean all that much to me

I slept through Friday night
But it’s cool cause i slept another couple of days and hey, I'm feeling right
Last night I had a dream
That we stayed up till a quarter to two
You were trying to say something to me but push I think I slept through that one too

It's sensible I make no sense at all
In my eyes you don't mean all that much to me anymore
Its sensible I make no sense at all
Its based to me and it don't mean much to me anymore

Blue days and black out nights
When you said I was being the kinda person that you hated
But I like that kind of life
Took a lonely road/ it's a lonely ride/ took the only road I don't even know why/ it'll come back to you eventually

Got fucked up in a fight/ but it's cool cause I had another couple of drinks to pass the time now I feel fine
Last night I had a dream (about you)
You looked so tired and sad and confused
You said it all comes back to you eventually

Its sensible I make no sense at all/
In my eyes you don't mean all that much to me anymore
Its sensible I make no sense at all/
It’s based to me and it don't mean much to me anymore
Track Name: Nino 2
Looking outta my car (I see nothing new)
It doesn't mean that much to me
I know it’s nothing new, nothing new
But one of these days I'm gonna get paid and it’s gonna come back to you
Here I am making the most of a bad time/ with somebody like you
You can work your whole life for the money but the moneys never gonna make you

Didn't get to say what I wanted to say/ but it doesn't matter anyway
Take me to the zoo I should be caged like an animal too
(oh magic moments/magic moments)
One of these days I'm gonna get paid and it’s gonna come back to you anyway
Well here I am making the most of a time/ with somebody like you
You can work your whole life making money but the moneys never gonna make you till you run it right through
Track Name: Synth Song
Trying to find
In the wrong state of mind
I’m just a regular person
Wasting your time

It’s why you never told me so
That’s how, why you never let me know
That every now and then
I’ll think about the end
and all he faces that I'm never gonna see again

Wasting my time in the wrong state of mind I'm just a regular person stuck in a bind
I never meant to live a lie
I never meant to let the moment pass me by
and now I'm wondering why
I'm still the same old
Track Name: Red River
Try not to think out loud
What I’m thinkin bout
I’m looking at the sky
While laying on the ground
Try not to think out loud
Try not to think out loud
But I made up my mind
I’m walking down the corridor and waiting in line
Tell me whatchu gonna do when I’m thru with you
Cause everything you do is just Is just seven little words for a shitty excuse
and if I’m a little kid then you’re a little man
What’s a seven letter word for I’m doing what I can and I mean it baby
Whats a seven dollar word for I mean it boy
Whoa oh ah ah oh oh oh oh

Fine time to be on your mind
Good friends are hard to find
Whoa whoa whoa oh
I could see but now I’m blind
And good luck is hard to find
Yeah yeah yeah ah

Don’t wanna grow up old
Don’t wanna die alone
Fuck doing what your told
Try not to think out loud

Fine time to be on your mind
Good friends are hard to find
Yeah yeah yeah ah
I could see but now I’m blind a good fuck is hard to find
Whoa whoa whoa
Track Name: Starfall
You get dizzy when you’re close to me which causes you to act inappropriately oh wait a minute lemme think I’ll sit down and have a drink maybe one or maybe seven maybe three and maybe tell you what I really mean my words aren’t what they seem although I tend to think that words don’t mean a thing instead I get lonely when you don’t talk to me it’s the words that I crave so irrationally oh wait a minute lemme think I’ll sit down and have a drink maybe one or maybe seven maybe three

Lemme tell you what I really mean my words aren’t what they seem although I tend to think that words don’t mean a thing instead I get lonely when you don’t talk to me it’s the words that I crave so irrationally oh wait a minute lemme think I’ll sit down and have a drink maybe one or maybe seven maybe three

Last night everybody came and went when I tried so hard to be the main event, every single person in the world agrees/ if you don’t take what you want you’ll never get what you need

Instead I get lonely when you don’t talk to me it’s the words that I crave so irrationally oh wait a minute lemme think I’ll sit down and have a drink maybe one or maybe seven maybe three
