Track Name: AlleyCat
ALLEYCAT
i see you wandering in the alleys
i see you eating scraps on the stoops
i'll let you see my stretch of gardens
kitty you are one to just play it cool
you're an alleycat, no wonder
a castout, no wonder
vagabond, no wonder
don't worry, i'm alleycat too
i see you walking lovers alley in the night
i wonder still if you're in the mood
fantasies of napping in the sunshine
fantasies of milk underneath the moon
you're an alleycat, no wonder
a cast out, no wonder
vagabond, no wonder
don't worry, i'm too, don't worry - i'm too
don't worry - i'm just like you,
don't worry - i'm just like you,
i'm alley cat too
Track Name: All to You
ALL TO YOU
tina, you stabbed me now i'm only shreds
i never thought i'd see my head
that high on a stake,you can call me impressed
tina, you've gone and nailed me to the wall
you left bleeding high and dry
why did you tell me you'd help me
i owe it all to you
tina, i'll never survive this mess
(i only) wanted you to know my kiss
now i'm dead and i'm lonely
and i owe it all to you
(come) reanimate me, come agitate me
bring your boy back to life
why don't you shock me, electrocute me
put my heart back inside
tina, you took a hammer
and you crushed my heart
i never thought you'd act so tough
now i've been battered to bits
i owe it all to you
tina i really got say my thanks
i never thought i'd see another day
i owe it all to you
Track Name: More Time
MORE TIME
time is waiting to slow you down
waiting around for a sign
time is waiting to lie to you
it stabs you in the back at night
i want more time
time is sending emojis to you
checking social websites for you
pinning your location to maps
casually clocking as you keep sleepwalking
i want more time, i want more time
i want more time
i want more time to want time
and i want time to want me too
i want more time, and i want time to want time
and i want time to want me too
i want more time,
time is keeping time for you
slowly ticking down to you
licking its fingers from desert with you
washing its hands in the dirt for you
i want more time, i want more time
Track Name: Walk on Back
WALK ON BACK
i’d miss my home i swear it if i left
i swear i’d pull off my sweater
i’d wear the words right on my chest
“i think i could die” oh baby
maybe that might be a lie
i think that i could suffer a bit
until i walked on back
if money were love i’d be wealthy enough
i swear i’d take you out for ice cream
i’d take you shopping for good stuff
well at least i’d like to
that might take a year or two
i think that i would work hard for it
until i walked on back
if dirt were in the air then my bandana
i’d share with you, we could wear it
together, we could march like ants do 2x2
i think we could make it last oh baby
maybe we’d tire of it rather fast
we’ll try to put up one last gasp
until we walk on back
if money were love i’d be the richest man
in town i’d have the largest eyes in town
i’d kill all the poorest guys around
i’d smite them with no apologies
and i’d keep you all to myself
i’d like to hold you for ransom
till the police shot me dead
Track Name: Ur so Cool
UR SO COOL
you’re so cool you’re so cool
i saw you at the party you had blue jeans on
pretty pretty though i'd never try to let it on
you caught me surfing heads in the living room
we tried to talk but in the make out room
i wanna talk to you, i wanna talk to you, i wanna
talk to you, you're cool
you're so cool, you're so cool
you're so cool, you're so cool
i'd tried to take you to chill out on the balcony
but you were dancing on tables
and you looked so free, and you pushed me
you did me in you drove me insane
i want more i want more i want more
i wanna talk to you, i wanna talk to you, i wanna
talk to you , you're cool
you're so cool, you're cool
Track Name: Discover
DISCOVER
say you were lonely have a fear of owning up to it
asking for a favor don’t let it stop you if you want to
discover – discover
what’s there to it? what do you do in your shell?
why would you have it any other way?
what’s there to it? what do you do in your shell?
why would you have it anyways?
Track Name: Be a Baby
BE A BABY
i don’t wanna know what you want
i don’t wanna see what you see
i just wanna be how i be, a baby
pick up my rattle watch while i roll
gimme that milk, gimme gimme that milk
burping the baby, changing changing those clothes
i need you more oh no momma how i need you more
maybe a nap, maybe a nap, maybe a nap
<i can’t think no i can’t think no>
i don’t wanna know what you want
i don’t wanna see what you see
i just wanna be how i be, a baby
