Yknow what they say No one’s born to hate We learn it somewhere along the way. Take your broken heart Turn it into art Can’t take it with you, can’t take it with you (I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna know) Empty bottle blues Sleepin’ different rooms Hardly a maverick Lesser than average Your vulnerability is stronger than it seems Yknow it’s okay to have a bad day (I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna know) Just get this one done, then you can move along Can’t take it with you, can’t take it with you Yknow what they say, no one’s born to hate Getting louder now, getting louder now

The city looks pretty when you been indoors For 23 days I’ve ignored all your phone calls. Everyone’s waiting when you get back home They don’t know where you been, why you gone so long. Friends treat you like a stranger and Strangers treat you like their best friend, oh well Spare a thought for the ones that came before All in a daze bending backwards to reach your goal. Sometimes I get sad It’s not all that bad One day, maybe never I’ll come around The city takes pity on your injured soul N heavenly prose ain’t enough good to fill that hole. Everyone’s soaked in animosity It’s vicious in winter, you never say what you mean. Friends treat you like a stranger and Strangers treat you like their best friend, oh well. Wakin’ up to another dismal day You got a ways to go, you oughta be grateful. Sometimes I get mad It’s not half as bad Pull yourself together N just calm down I’ll be what you want oh when you want it But I’ll never be what you need And the city looks pretty from where I’m standing…

At the end of every season I’m spent up Keep thinking this will be the one. Hesitation lingers till I’m unreasonable As if you care, I know you got your own stuff going on You must be having so much fun Everything’s amazing So subservient I make myself sick Are you listening? Can’t we talk about it once we’ve slept? When can we, yeah can we, work it out? Meditation just makes you more strung out I wish you had a guru to tell you to let it go, let it go You must be having so much fun Everything’s amazing So subservient I make myself sick Are you listening? You don’t have to pretend you’re not scared Everyone else is just as terrified as you. Medication just makes you more upset I bet you got a lot to prove I know you’re still the same You must be having so much fun Everything’s amazing So subservient I make myself sick Are you listening?

I don’t know a lot about you but You seem to know a lot about me so I take a little time out, I take a little time out I’m sorry that I lost my patience You deserve better it’s true I need a little time out I need a little time out From me And you Open up your insides show us Your inner most lecherous I’ll rip it out carefully I promise you won’t feel a thing Everybody wants to have their say Forever waiting for some car crash I need a little time out I need a little time out From me And you Shave your head to see how it feels Emotionally it’s not that different But to the hand it’s beautiful (Yeah to the hand it’s beautiful) You seem to have the weight of the world Upon your bony shoulders well hold on You need a little time out You need a little time out From you And me
5.
Don’t you have anything better to do I wish that someone would hug you Must be lonely Being angry Feeling over-looked. You sit alone at home in the darkness With all the pent-up rage that you harness I’m real sorry Bout whatever happened to you I wanna walk through the park in the dark Men are scared that women will laugh at them I wanna walk through the park in the dark Women are scared that men will kill them I hold my keys Between my fingers He said “I could eat a bowl of alphabet soup And spit out better words than you” But you didn’t Man you’re kidding yourself if you think The world revolves around you Yknow you got lots to give N so many options I’m real sorry Bout whatever happened to you I wanna walk through the park in the dark Men are scared that women will laugh at them I wanna walk through the park in the dark Women are scared that men will kill them I hold my keys Between my fingers Go on tell me You’re just kidding He said, she said Nameless, faceless

I’m not your mother, I’m not your bitch I hear you mutter, under your breath Put up or shut up, it’s all the same It’s all the same, never change, never change I’m not your mother, I’m not your bitch d-did I stutter, a little bit sit down n shut up, it’s all the same it’s all the same, never change, never change I get most self-defensive When I know I’m wrong Think we all can agree I try my best to be patient But I can only put up with so much shit I’m not your mother, I’m not your bitch I hear you mutter, under your breath Put up or shut up, it’s all the same It’s all the same, never change, never change
7.
Yeah they say whoever pays The piper calls the tune Let’s avoid the truth Make you all feel special Your desperation stinks I can smell it on your breath A certain absolut anosmic Got yourself to blame for this (Tell me how you really feel) I don’t know, I don’t know anything I don’t owe, I don’t owe anything Your opinion means a lot Well tell me what’s the use? I never feel as stupid As when I’m around you And indecision rots Like a bag of last weeks meat And I guess it’s hard to keep Everybody happy (Tell me how you really feel) I don’t know, I don’t know anything I don’t owe, I don’t owe anything
8.
Darkness depends on where you’re standing Jump the creek n watch the sunshine swim You found inner peace in the inner north-east. Got a momentary bend Gimme dreams up-stream Lower Dantian screaming You got a lot on your plate Don’t let it go to waste Humble but hungry Need validation You catch the moon so carefully Breath out, breath in This tiger claw gets patient Pull back n release. The sign on the shelf says “Please help your self” Won’t you tell me something new You’re in tune with who surrounds you You got a lot on your plate Don’t let it go to waste Humble but hungry Need validation You got a lot on your mind You know that half the time It’s only half as true Don’t let it swallow you
9.
Before we get started I’ll clean this up No use drinkin’ from a leakin’ cup Yknow what I mean? Not really it seems N when we get going’ we’ll keep it sane Change is as good as a holiday I’m not claimin’ I’m some patron saint Say what you want Don’t got a lot Oh but what I got I’d give It all away Walkin’ on eggshells gets tiring Pullin’ teeth, white knucklin’ N I don’t wanna hurt your feelings So I say nothing Sorta self-rightous my heart of gold Just sit back, do what you’re told If you spot it you got it Well maybe I got it too (and it goes, and it goes, yeah it goes away… say what you mean to say) Say what you want Don’t got a lot Oh but what I got I’d give It all away Say what you want Don’t got a lot Oh but what you got You’d throw It all away

Sunday Roast 04:44
Don’t come with your arms swinging Throw them around me Some kind of sweet relief I hope you never leave It’s all the same to me Just bring yourself You know your presence is Present enough I got a front row seat It’s all the same to me I spend a lotta my time Doin’ a whole lotta nothing I know you’re doin’ your best I think you’re doin’ just fine I know it’s been a long week And now you’re takin’ your time Some kindness goes around Some kinda backfires It’s all the same to me Ignore that voice It puts you down You make your choice I’m here for you It’s all the same to me I got a lot on my mind But I dunno how to say it I know you’re doin’ your best I think you’re doin’ just fine Keep on keepin’ on yknow you’re not alone And I know all your stories but I’ll listen to them again And if you move away yknow I’ll miss your face It’s all the same to me yknow it’s all the same to me
