Track Name: Killed a Man
i killed a man today

Track Name: Lines
there are lines
after lines
after bumps
after lines

there are cops
they have guns
they are here
at this house

and your heart
is way too big
so get off the shit

and your heart
is way too big
to go to jail kid

and sometimes
you have res-
-servations
about working for the man

but you know
you couldn't make it
out of line

there are lines
you can't cross
you do drugs
you fuck off

and you wanna rebel
but you'd give it all up
to be fine

and your heart
is way too big
to get off the grid
and your heart
na na na
ow
Track Name: Chicago
i'm goin on vacation
fuck coasts
i'm over union station
lookin out for art kids
dumpin all my girlfriends
sleepin on the L train
ridin on your lame waves
i got it!

roller dogs and cigarettes
new new shit no regrets
i kicked dope in a high-rise it's
chicago

white castle 4am
i'm on a 7 second plan
mother-fuck art let's dance

you're never gonna find me
cuz i'm lookin out behind me
think i'm ever goin home
no chance

back yards
parked cars
alley ways
strange days
chicago babes
chicago slays

(monologue):
there's a certain feeling i get when i'm in a very definite place with especially rare people that is immutable upon arrival; erases all negative emotion and memory from my consciousness and happens so seldom that i will always chase after it. internally i'm never gonna feel validated which is ok, but this external environment that produces this feeling is the closest i'll ever come to feelin fine. i've found it sometimes through drugs, drinks, adventures, vandalism, hedonism, isolationism, people, places, and all types of things, and i can never recall that feeling to my heart until it is right there, at which point i try to remember it forever. it never works.
Track Name: Stop
stop stop stop stop stop stop stop stop

oh b-b-baby
you call to me in the middle of the night
and that's alright

you never met a man that done treated you right
you never met a man that done treated you right
and that's just fine

stop stop stop stop stop stop
fallin' in love
stop stop stop stop stop stop
fallin' in love

oh b-b-baby
i call to you in the middle of the night
and that's alright

i never met a girl that i treated right
i never met a girl that i treated right
and that's just fine

stop stop stop stop stop stop
fallin' in love
stop stop stop stop stop stop
fallin' in love
Track Name: New Beverage

new new girl and she's all mine
summer feelin summer heart
bubblegum and new guitar

you should cleanse that mindless palate
with a new beverage

it's a liquid summer feelin
with rebellious effervescence
just a street walkin sleazer
got no time for young professions

ridin on my bike at night
puttin' up the good good fight
never go to work no more
i turn in soda cans galore

new new beverage all the time
new new girl and she's all mine
summer feelin summer heart
bubblegum and new guitar

new beverage
new beverage
new beverage
new beverage
