Track Name: On a Mission
Open your eyes do you like what you see
Do you see and do things that make you happy
'Cuz if you don't and do nothing that's insanity
Change the things you don't like that's called rationality

So I try to do
Make my dreams come true
Live a life fulfilled
That's why I sing this song

I'm on a mission
On a mission

Don't let anyone tell you that what you like is dumb
Who the hell are they and the same could be said for anyone
They say you're crazy, I'll tell you what's crazy
Living life believing you cannot go

I'm on a mission
On a mission
Track Name: Fucked Me Good
It'd been a day a day it was
Now a night of nights and just because
The Universe decided She was gonna have a little fun
Little did I know what She had in store for me

Well looking for some flavor something to sweeten the taste
Left in my mouth from the gift She laced
She led me to her bed right in the sand
I was feeling pretty good, like I was about to be had

Well then I felt my face clench, my back arch off her land
I swear to God I was making fucking glass in my hands
And noises that only the ocean could stand

'Cuz She fucked me good
Like I knew She could
More then I ever felt or thought She would
And I moaned and I groaned and I felt I now understood

'Cuz She fucked me good
Like I knew She could
More then I ever felt or thought She would
And i moaned and I groaned and I let Her take all of me
Laughing by myself in the sand 'cuz She fucked me good

Well out of breath, completely bare
Face down ass up laying there
A magnificent beauty
I should have only stared
But I slid my hand under her and felt all those fine things
And all up in her gut and by just a fistful of strings
I yanked her right over and tried to do what was just done to me

But taken aback, unable to play
The most beautiful sight that my eyes could be layed
I squirmed and I turned She was coming for another round
She must have needed to hear that screaming sound

'Cuz She fucked me good
Like i knew She could
More then I ever felt or thought She would
And I moaned and I groaned and I felt I now understood

'Cuz She fucked me good
Like I knew She could
More then I ever felt or thought She would
And i moaned and I groaned and I let Her take all of me
Laughing by myself in the sand 'cuz She fucked me good

Well I realized it would never end
I could stay laid down getting ravaged in the sand
But if anything would ever get done
It was up to me
So I stood up, I ran my hands through my hair
I looked up in Her eyes and could only stare
And think if this is what it feels like
To be one with You

I ain't going nowhere
If this is what it feels like I ain't going nowhere
Track Name: My City
Living in the city is a different kind of pretty
The glow of the lights electricity emitting
The pulse of the beat of the people in the street
But tonight it's just me and my board under my feet
So I sing

This is my city
This is my city
This is my city when I'm rolling down the street tonight

In the bar with a drink after close when I'm thinking
It's time to go home on a road of my own
Down Monroe from Acme then up Canterberry
I'm swerving and curving while the moonlight is burning
Down on my steet

This is my city
This is my city
This is my city when I'm rolling down the street tonight
Track Name: The Other Me
I wake up I go right back to sleep
To spend more time in the place where I'm the other me
It's much better looking and comfortable then right here
On this couch
So I stay still I don't dare to move
Or else I'll lose the only way my path back to you
And I won't be able to see or feel you till who knows when
Sure ain't me sure ain't me

Now it's too late the morning has passed me by
This week that makes the seventh time
And it's ok, I'd rather spend my morning with you anyway
'Cuz I'm feeling a little lost, I'm missing my crew
Like what my body is missing in nutritional value
I'm craving something that will actually fill me up inside

So tonight I'll be on the sidewalk playing guitar
Joined by my dreams and memories
And all the people smoking cigarettes outside of this bar

So tonight I'll be on the L train back to the house
Along with my doubts and the hopes that this time
When I get back I won't be locked out

So tonight I'll end up passed out back on the couch
While my mind is dreaming about
All the little things I miss the most
The little things I miss the most

So tonight when I go to sleep
I'll enjoy being the other me
Until I wake up
And learn that I'm alone

With a boner
Track Name: No Ideas
Swerve my car into oncoming traffic
Make beer can armor with duct tape and strap it
On my chest, and shoot me with a flare gun
Peanut butter someone's dick all drunk watch them go run

These are things I want to do and don't (yeah right)
Yeah I just cannot I just cannot say no

These are my no ideas (these are my no ideas)
These are my no ideas (these are my no ideas)
Should I do them no
But I can't say no
These are my no ideas

Use the canoe in the backyard pool
Have friends at the house and someone is humping a stool
Sprinkles walks in, should've seen his face
I know that look, I know he's thinking
What the hell they think I just have no
Idea what the fuck it is I don't

These are my no ideas (these are my no ideas)
These are my no ideas (these are my no ideas)
Should I do them no
But I can't say no
These are my no ideas


Get your boy out the trash
Get your boy out the trash

You see your boy in the trash you think what happened to you?
You know you wanna help but you don't know what to do
Then a car pulls up ahead and the window rolls down
Get your boy out the trash man this is the Roc town!

Get your boy out the trash
Get your boy out the trash


There's a spider on your back
There's a spider on your back
There's a terrifyingly scary
Huge extraordinarily hairy
Very creepy crawly crunchy looking spider
On your back
On your back
Track Name: Christmas in Kimono in Kyoto in Japan
This past Christmas season was like none I ever seen
Packed up my bags and left, kinda pissed off the family
Instead of opening presents, and eating up that old turkey
I was sitting slurping soba swearing poorly in Cantonese

It was a Christmas in Kimono in Kyoto in Japan
A couple dozen hours of traveling
Then a day after I landed

Saw NOFX in Tokyo
They played a kick-ass show
Ten thousand people or so
And it was cool 'cuz I was the tall one
I was the tall one

It was a Christmas in Kimono in Kyoto in Japan
But before that i took some Yoshinoya
On the Shinkansen headed to Osaka

We lived drank and were baka
Karaoke in Tennoji and playing on the streets of Namba
Until the cops said no no no
You must go go go go go
So we walked down the river past all the love hotels

There was The Puppy, The Dress, and The Sala del Ray
You could get a couple hours or an overnight stay
But don't expect a room on Lover's Day because that's actually tradition on Christmas

It was a Christmas in Kimono in Kyoto in Japan
I have two new asian sisters
One named Chico one named Anna (funny story about her name)

Formerly Ng Sze Sze
And now Ng Ching Bee
Because apparently that name was unlucky
So when she was thirteen her mom switched up her scene
And now she's back in Hong Kong with fat guy
Diu nei lo mo
Diu nei lo mo
Diu nei lo mo
Love Diu Diu

It was a Christmas in Kimono in Kyoto in Japan
Who knew that Yoshie loved jews, gingers, South Park, and gay men

Oh and Moano
This takes me right back to that night
With the moon coming over the mountain
A truly unforgettable sight

Between the fucking stars
And the fucking snow
I know neither of us could ever have known
That we'd be spending Christmas together in Kyoto
That we'd be spending Christmas dressed in kimono
Then watch Star Wars with Sabin and Alejandro
That we'd be spending Christmas

Don Don Don Don Don Quijote
Sek sii la lei
Track Name: Road of Your Own
Driving underneath the stars at night makes me think all the time
About what that even is, and what I'm doing with all of mine
And as I lift my eyes I always find it makes me feel right inside
And I know you've felt the same thing, you've felt the same thing
Just at a different time

Time, what the hell is that anyway?
Seems like I'm always low on it
And it looks like you are too
So I guess I'll just have to borrow
Time, like no one else you've met before
Won't leave you all alone
The only one who'll show you right from wrong
And be singing with me here tomorrow

As I drive down these dark roads
There's one truth that I'm always shown
That's if you wanna go and gaze at the stars take your eye off the road
That's if you wanna go and gaze at the stars take your eye off the road

You won't know where you're headed
But you know where you're trying to go
You won't know how you'll get there
But you won't even have to know anyway

'Cuz it's a constant battle (a constant battle)
A constant struggle (a constant struggle)
A constant battle living life on a road of your own
Yeah it's a constant battle living life on a road of your own

As I drive down these dark roads
There's one truth that I'm always shown
That's it's a constant battle living life on a road of your own
Track Name: Pillman
SDS delivery for the pharmacy
We're the UPS for morphine and other drugs not LSD
So hastily we drive through the city
to deliver the narcs no problem that's easy
But this time a patient looked me right in the eye and said he said

Fuck you pillman
I don't need you i don't need your meds
Fuck you pillman
I'm sorry i shouldn't have said
Fuck you pillman
But I don't need your meds
And I'm sorry but I'll have to say it again
Fuck you pillman

Trapped in my head
Steuben county institution fed
Enough that when I see you
I wanna punch you in your face
I can't believe what they tell me
I can't believe what I wanna believe
All I know is when I see you
And your big fat fucking face I think

Fuck you pillman
I don't need you i don't need your meds
Fuck you pillman
I'm sorry i shouldn't have said
Fuck you pillman
But I don't need your meds
And I'm sorry but I'll have to say it again
Fuck you pillman
Track Name: Dank Dave

They call him Dank Dave 'cuz he's always that dank yeah
Track Name: Nothing in the Way
I feel you in the air
I see you in the room tonight
As I looked into your eyes
And you looked in mine
It only took one second in time
To plant the seed inside our minds
I know you're thinking what I'm thinking
I know we're feeling the same damn thing

We just wanna be a little bit closer now
We just need to be a little bit closer 'cuz
I just wanna be a little bit closer to you
And I know you're feeling the same thing too
So why don't we there's nothing in the way
Nothing in the way

I feel you in the air
I see you in the room tonight
As I look into your eyes
And you look in mine
It only took one second in time
But it bears repeating now
'Cuz I know you're there
And you know I'm here
And I know you're there
And you know I'm here
And I know you're there
You're feeling the same damn thing

We just wanna be a little bit closer now
We just need to be a little bit closer 'cuz
I just wanna be a little bit closer to you
And I know you're feeling the same thing too
So why don't we there's nothing in the way
Why don't we there's nothing in the way

Yeah we're just a little bit closer now
Yeah we're just a little bit closer 'cuz
I just wanna be a little bit closer to you
And I know you're feeling the same thing to
See there was nothing in the way
There is never anything in the way
There was nothing in the way
There is never anything in the way

There's nothing in the way
Track Name: Another Day
They say wait till you wake 'cuz tomorrows another day
But my skin is destroyed and my head is the same
There's no time to be vain

When I can't take care of my main goals
It feels like I'm losing control
It feels like I'm losing control
It feels like I've lost control

Just dragging around
Pulled by Life's inertia
I'm sick and I'm said
Don't even have it that bad

Oh but I feel the wrath of the obstacles in my path
It's like ripping and clawing at a ceiling of glass
Or grasping at dirt and making things worse
As it falls on my head oh it buries me it buries me
It fucking buries me

Stopped dead in my tracks
I'm screeching right back
I'm trying to fight
But for now
It's good night
Track Name: No More
I used to be the only one who could get you started
And I'm talking about the key in the ignition yeah R Kelly
But I had to leave for just a little bit
And let you slip out of my grasp and out my life

I ain't gotcha no more
No more no more
I ain't gotcha no more
No more no more
I ain't gotch no more
No more no more
I ain't gotcha no more no more

We used to go everywhere
We used to see everything
We used to curse and we'd swear
We used to yell and we'd sing
"I Believe I Can Fly" by Me First and the Gimme Gimmes
You were my set of wings
What was I thinking

I ain't gotcha no more
No more no more
I ain't gotcha no more
No more no more
I ain't gotch no more
No more no more
I ain't gotcha no more no more

I wished to see you once more
I had to go through the snow
But there was nobody home
But a smashed back window
So I went on inside
All too familiar to me
But I couldn't stay long
So I just took the key
And now that's all I have left
And the fond memories
Always dressed up in green
My "Chocolate Factory"

I ain't gotcha no more
No more no more
I ain't gotcha no more
No more no more
I ain't gotch no more
No more no more
I ain't gotcha no more no more
Track Name: Let's Go Play Shows Together
Let's go play shows together
We're a great duo of notes together
Driving up and down the coast together
Let's go I'll get our stuff

Let's go move west together
We can't wait 'round for the rest forever
I'd say let's play a game of chess together
But I know you'd rather not

We could sit around and watch
Or go boarding around the block
Listen to the hum of the highway
Or the beat of the clock
Makes me think about the times when we thought we had it rough but
Boy did we have eachother
Then we traveled the world
We traveled to shows
We backpacked around the state of Colorado
Drove across the country in a Suburu
And crashed into a Mercedes

Let's go play shows together
Make Paul's World Famous Dorito's together
You know the ones with all the cheese
And all the extra stuff that makes people say
Boy you must be crazy
Let's go on a trip together
Then watch the sunset in this joyous weather
Then settle by a tree and see everything around
Then lie down and marvel whats above

We could sit around and watch
Or go boarding around the block
Listen to the hum of the highway
Or the beat of the clock
Makes me think about the times when we thought we had it rough but
Boy did we have eachother
Then we traveled the world
Made friends all around
Some from the big cities
Some from the tiny towns
Some from the other side of the world that I
Hope to meet again

Let's go have a drink together
Before you go away to wherever
It'll be alright it's just a gap of time before
We're drinking again

Let's go in a car together
We can go to the shows or wherever
We can see Braco together
And you know life will be good
See double rainbows together praise Braco
Driving up and down the coast together
We're a great group of notes together
And I say
Let's make a song
