Track Name: across the sky
hey
don't wanna talk about it today
don't go on about it
oh
we lost the sight
and we didn't write our names across the sky

now
i wanna have it out
don't know how
all i know is that i cried
and we didn't write our names across the sky

maybe if we wrote them on the walls it could be different
then the freedom's up
comes resistance
in a drunken lust you showed me craving
but we didn't write our names to taste it

we fall
we crawl
we fall
we crawl
now our knees are raw
we probably should get up off the ground

god
why won't you give me what i want?
all i want was it all
but i guess ill have to settle down

this might be trite
i want to die
cause we didnt write our names across the sky

then we tried to put it up in paint instead of pencil
came off on our clothes
they looked horrible on ya
gorgeous on the floor, though
hold me baby
and write our names for heaven's sake

come on baby
draw it on your lips and trace it with your tongue
tastes so familiar, yeah
because you know me baby
and we didn't write our names

hey don't wanna talk about it
wait, look around
the sky is falling
we didnt write our names across it
Track Name: dutchie
i found a black & mild & i'm about to light it
on my drive home tonight, babe
& when i get there, i'm gon sit there &
light a dutchie like it's nothing

i found a black & mild, oh
do you got a light, yo?
you can have a puff, hun
cause you're gonna want one
& we gon sit here & shoot the shit, dear
& we gon listen from a distance
if we know love, we gon float up
do you got a dutch, then?
yup.. it's nothing

inhale. exhale..

I found a black & mild
hey, are you going my way?
can i hitch a ride home?
i'll roll down my window
& things are nearer than they appear
when you're looking in the rear view mirror
& i can sit here & lend you an ear
& i can listen from a distance
if that's a yes, friend, one more question
do you got a dutch in there?
it's nothing
Track Name: open blinds
hopped into the shower for a half an hour
felt up on my body, it was so delightful
walked up to the mirror
couldn't see it clear so i took off my towel
and i wiped it down
feeling like a flower cause i smell like roses
pocket full of posey
hope i dont fall down
when i shimmy
shimmy in my skivvies
wonder what you'll see this time
through my open blinds
dont mind, look inside of my open blinds

stretched out and i'm yawning
hardly any clothes on
hello sunday morning, hope you get an eyeful
do you dig my saunter? yeah you dig it don't ya?
i'd be diggin on it also
i can't wait to dance around
these vertical curtains always block everything out
so i like to keep them drawn
all the world's a ballroom
come and dance with me this time
through my open blinds
dont mind, look inside of my open blinds
Track Name: can't won't rush
i think i'm in love with you, but don't know what lovers do

you reach for my hand
i don't understand
i guess i'm falling, but i can't

i think i'm in love with you, but don't know what lovers do
i breath in the microphone thinking of you

i sing you a song and you sing along
you want an encore but i wont.

when i wake up from my sleep
i wanna feel you next to me
so i fall right back to my dreams

i think i'm in love with you, but don't know what lovers do

if we'd ever touch
i get the hunch i'd giggle too much, so why rush?

in love
Track Name: give me
give me something pretty to look at
give me something wild to smile for
give me something beautiful too
give me some of you, why don't you
let me lay my fingers on you
you're lookin so good in that
& smell just like i thought you'd
wow, your palms are soft too

give me something tightly to hold on
give me something right & so wrong
give me some tonight
i'm aching for the sounds you're making
have you thought about me lately?
i've thought about you lately
& thought about you naked
i've thought about you, baby

baby baby baby..

give me something pretty to look at
i'll give you one to lie for
give me something wonderful, too
give me all of you, why won't you
let me put my hands all on you
you're feeling so good in them
& taste just like i thought you'd
oh, you're moans are soft, too

give me something tightly to hold on
give me something right & so wrong
give me more tonight
i'm shaking from this love we're making
take me where you wanna take me
take me on, i've waited
make me say your name, please
make me. make me. make me.

baby baby baby..
Track Name: hook up fee (remix)
ah ah ah ah

get it for me
i'll give you a hook up fee
get it for me, baby
i'll give you a hook up feeeee
for that ecstasy and that coke and weed
for my dopamine, give me some speed
for the float in me, lsd..

ah ah ah ah
Track Name: the bird song
where do we go from here
i gotta know. i gotta show you.
where do we go from here
when the winter rolls around da da da da da

have you ever looked up
have you ever looked down
what a different sight to see each
look up & see blue. look down & see you
makes you wish. makes you wish

where do we go from here
i gotta know. won't you show me
where do we go from here
when it's gettin frigid out, gotta leave this town

when the weather gets rough
when the winter gets rowdy
i've got some flight it me, see.
my wings widen, then i fly into everything.
everything.

where do we go from here?
i gotta know. i gotta show you.
where do we go from here?
birds are dreamers too do do do do do.

i wanna get higher. higher. high up. higher.
wanna get higher.
and work up in the sky where they do their work.

i gotta know
Track Name: restless city
you should meet me
i'll be mean and distant
you should believe me
i'll deceive and dismiss
you'll dig me
we should kick it

kick it aaight
you know that you'll need me
kick it tonight

i know i know i lie
but oh but oh but oh
how so alive you are in spite
you didn't die, you know
and yo, the city's restless
count your blessings
if your into those

when you meet me
i'm completely flippant
it's hurting
do you deserve it?
i don't know or worry
but hurry
we should kick it

kick it ok
you don't want it easy
kick it today

i know i know it's tough
but oh but oh but oh
how would you like to make love?
fast or slow?
and yo, the city's restless
count your blessings if you're into those
Track Name: unattainable
i can't stop wanting you
no matter what i say
i want to run with you
and i have us run away

but i know that leads to my worst bad habit
i reach for your spot but can't scratch it

i wrote a song for you
and threw it right away
don't want to sing for you
but i need to hear it play

unattainable this can't keep going on
unattainable gotta stop holding on
unattainable

still i can't stop looking through
a world so sideways
to peep a look at you
but i quickly turn away

unattainable
Track Name: ransom
hands up
its the law
it doesn't matter that i'm not a cop
cause you don't have the time for protocol
cause this, oh, is a stick up

too slow on the draw
ive got the pistol here so i'm in charge
surrender everything you own
cause this, oh, is a stick up

it wouldn't be a problem
if you had listened to your mama
you know you had to be home before the street lights came on

ransom
pay the cost before i chop her pretty fingers off
if you miss her, listen for my call
ear full when you pick up

it wouldn't be a problem
if you had listened to your mama
you know you had to be home before the street lights came on
the system isn't for ya
the system will ignore ya
dont you know its your fault youre a victim

bath salts
give me some
i aint too good to be a cannibal
hand me a knife and fork
she looks delicious

those are her cries
do they incentivize?
its all about the bottom line
in a stick up
