30 Cents 03:16
30 Cents I walk down the street and I talk to myself Glancing over my shoulder… I really feel swell I’ve mastered the art of staring at strangers If they look at me that way When I touch foreign objects, no, my hands don’t feel clean I’m sitting at a stop sign waiting for the light to turn green I wanna go back where everything made sense Even if it costs me twenty three bucks and thirty cents Laa, Laa-da-da-da I had a dream that I lost my mind Laa, Laa-da-da-da I feel so delighted I can’t help but yell This night buzz I’m feeling is unparalleled I’ve mastered the art of staring at strangers When they look at me that way When I touch foreign objects, no, my hands don’t feel clean I’m sitting at a stop sign waiting for the light to turn green I wanna go back where everything made sense Even if it costs me twenty three bucks and thirty cents Laa, Laa-da-da-da I had a dream that I lost my mind Laa, Laa-da-da-da The thing about most people is they speak until they wheeze If I stay quiet it brings out uncertainties Focus, fixation Sarcasm subdued What am I really thinking? Oh… You’d shoot me if you knew When I touch foreign objects, no, my hands don’t feel clean I’m sitting at a stop sign waiting for the light to turn green I wanna go back where everything made sense Even if it costs me twenty three bucks and thirty cents Laa, Laa-da-da-da I had a dream that I lost my mind Laa, Laa-da-da-da Laa, Laa-da-da-da I had a dream that I lost my mind Laa, Laa-da-da-da credits

Like an Eel 03:01
Like an Eel Jabber, jabber It’s not easy to get under my skin But when you blabber I bang my head against the wall again and again I can’t find a quiet corner in this house You’re like an eel, you don’t ever shut your mouth I can’t sleep, no it’s way too loud You’re like an eel, you don’t ever shut your mouth I can’t find a quiet corner in this house You’re like an eel, you don’t ever shut your mouth I can’t get to sleep, oh no it’s too loud You’re like an eel, you don’t ever shut your mouth Close your flapper You never stop do you? You crazy person! Jabber, jabber, jabber, jabber It’s no use… so I just curl up and take it on the chin I can’t find a quiet corner in this house You’re like an eel, you don’t ever shut your mouth I can’t sleep, no it’s way too loud You’re like an eel, you don’t ever shut your mouth I can’t find a quiet corner in this house You’re like an eel, you don’t ever shut your mouth I can’t get to sleep, oh no it’s too loud You’re like an eel, you don’t ever shut your mouth HEY YOU - DON’T START You just keep on talking from the dawn until the dark HEY YOU - DON’T START It’s funny ‘cause your mouth is almost bigger than a shark’s HEY YOU - DON’T START You just keep on talking from the dawn until the dark HEY YOU - DON’T START It’s funny ‘cause your mouth is almost bigger than a shark’s I can’t find a quiet corner in this house You’re like an eel, you don’t ever shut your mouth I can’t sleep, no it’s way too loud You’re like an eel, you don’t ever shut your mouth I can’t find a quiet corner in this house You’re like an eel, you don’t ever shut your mouth I can’t get to sleep, oh no it’s too loud You’re like an eel, you don’t ever shut your mouth

Sucker Me In 03:49
Sucker Me In I made a public appearance today To let everyone know I’m alive I keep to myself most days The green is hard to hide Sometimes I need to go out - away from the screen Chances are you’re hearing this on the side of the street People walk past - eyebrows raise at me Everywhere I go the feeling is bittersweet You know it’s gold out West? Can anyone here tell me what’s best? I feel it in my chest, don’t have much left I know what I want I don’t think I’ll ever have enough Reach your hand out and sucker me in You look different closer up But I can’t stop hitting rock bottom I’ll die before I give it up Quirky vibe, dreamy eyes The green is hard to hide Everybody look the other way I don’t feel like getting dressed today I self-destruct and give it a shrug ‘Cause I’m having so much fun I did nothing yesterday I hear the ticking time Was it worth it? I can’t say The green is hard to hide Sometimes I need to go out - anywhere but here Laugh to myself, enjoy atmosphere When I’m alone my head stays clear Look to the North no/know fear You know it’s cold up there? I live and love that life’s unfair I keep sleep walking on air I know what I want I don’t think I’ll ever have enough Reach your hand out and sucker me in You look different closer up But I can’t stop hitting rock bottom I’ll die before I give it up Quirky vibe, dreamy eyes, ooo The green is hard to hide Everybody look the other way I don’t feel like getting dressed today I self-destruct and give it a shrug ‘Cause I’m having so much fun I’m having so much fun I’m having so much fun I’m having so much fun I don’t think I’ll ever have enough Reach your hand out and sucker me in You look different closer up But/and I can’t stop hitting rock bottom I’ll die before I give it up Quirky vibe, dreamy eyes The green is hard to hide

Unsymmetrical D-I-S-O-R-I-E-N-T-E-D That’s me, you see? I always find a way I do this everyday It’s getting to the point where: I have no clue what to say I need a getaway My hair is turning gray I always get this way When I’m feeling tired So tired But I can’t shut my eyes I never find a way I do this everyday It’s getting to the point where: Every day is judgement day Fire On fire You better shut your eyes I always find a way It feels like my birthday I’m bored of staying here I wanna run away, away Are you coming with? I need to know okay, okay? I guess by now you know that I’m okay if I stay Tired So tired But I don’t shut my eyes Unsymmetrical features I’m all business Scary creatures Why don’t you listen? D-I-S-O-R-I-E-N-T-E-D That’s me, you see? I know, you know, I know that I’m on my game Would you agree? Never second guessing I appreciate the clarity I have always wondered if you wonder what it’s like to be Tired So tired But you can’t shut your eyes I always find a way I do this everyday It’s getting to the point where: I don’t even know what I want to say Liar You’re a liar You always shut your eyes D-I-S-O-R-I-E-N-T-E-D That’s me, you see? I know, you know, I know that I’m on my game Would you agree? Never second guessing I appreciate the clarity I have always wondered if you wonder what it’s like to be Tired So tired But you can’t shut your eyes Unsymmetrical features I’m all business Scary creatures Why don’t you listen? D-I-S-O-R-I-E-N-T-E-D That’s me, you see? D-I-S-O-R-I-E-N-T-E-D That’s me, you see?

about
