Track Name: Back Home
Memories and old cds of living easy,
Three o'clock bus stop; regards my elementary,
I recall my sandy feet inside my car,
Low tide, old airport had blessed me with my
Favorite scar.

Why does every simple thing seem to complicate me?
Running back and forth so I can be....

Back home, Back home, Back home, Back home

Bob and Pac with billie stuffed inside my luggage,
Iím a foreign man who doesnít speak the language.
Words and sketches, notes on napkins underlined;
In the lab still underneath L.A. and Iím asking why....

Why does every simple thing seem to complicate me?
Running back and forth so I can be....

Back home, Back home, Back home, Back home

Grab my notebook, spill it on to "2" tape,
And hit the 101, cuz we've just begun;
To make your system shake, and
Perfect paragraphs in this letter,
Explaining what I remember;
House parties, green bottles and my friends

Why does every simple thing seem to complicate me?
Running back and forth so I can be....

Back home, Back home, Back home, Back home

Back home, Back home, Back home, Back home!
Track Name: Are You Down
You seem to follow me down,
You seem to follow me down,

Girl you got a fuse at the end of your heart,
So once I light up, I donít think it will stop,
You got a reputation for what youíre not,
And I donít really mind that, mind that.
Donít want to be your man, donít want to be your daddy
I ainít your boyfriend; I ainít your caddy.
You got to keep it real if you want to put it on me, on me.

Itís getting real dark on the edge of your mind,
Iíve never seen a smile so hard to find;
Letting all the alligators waste your time,
But, I really donít mind that, mind that.

I want to walk you home at the end of the night,
And throw you in the pool ëcause youíre so uptight.
I want to fool around ëtill your clothes are dry,
And I donít think youíll mind that, mind that.

So letís break out and fold up the sun,
To late to stop it now, here I come.

Are you down, want to mess around?
Weíll do it underground, wonít let you down,
Are you down, can we mess around, yeah,
Are you down? Donít let me down,
So, are you down, are you down, are you?

So donít cry if youíre lonely, baby girl, come and show me,
I donít mind if you tease me, having fun is so easy.
Please donít lie when you kiss me,
Donít pretend when youíre with me,
I know girls can be trixy when theyíre down.

Are you down, want to mess around?
Weíll do it underground, wonít let you down,
Are you down, can we mess around,
Are you down? Donít let me down,

So, are you down, are you down, are you?
Track Name: Love Affair
If you got a problem with your love affair,
If you got a problem with your love affair,
Cry to someone who cares but donít cry to me!

Hours are spent, then it history,
And my girl loves her insecurities.
I canít work a nine to five and,
You donít seem to realize whatís on my resume;
I grab the microphone and sway this way,
But, all you want is to complain
And Iím just trying to explain...

If youíve got a problem with your love affair,
If youíve got a problem with your love affair,
Cry to someone who cares but donít cry to me!

I got the bottle empty, Iím holding my last twenty,
Down at the corner discount liquor store.
Itís a ìquick fixî recipe,
And ìthe basicsî are not basic for me,
The more it goes, it just seems the same,
As Iím still trying to explain...

If you got a problem with your love affair,
If you got a problem with your love affair,
Cry to someone who cares, but donít cry to me!

If you got a problem with your love affair,
If you got a problem with your love affair,
Cry to someone who cares but donít cry to me!

If you got a problem with your love affair
If you got a problem with your love affair
Track Name: Use Me
Miss joker, joker laughing at me,
Ohhh, 'cause I know all of your schemes lately,
Like the way you move your hip,
Seductive licks for the money clip.
Do you own this? And I know this, thatís when I noticed.

She looked me over and moved so easily,
But, in fact, fuck all that, I like the way you use me!
The evidence is missing with my "Steiny,"
Turn it on until dawn, I like the way you use me!

Welcome back to the counterfeit stacks,
Baby slow down; youíll have a heart attack,
'Cause I like what I see, ohh,
My approach into the night,
I'll be wrecking shit 'til the sky is bright,
With the latest technology, like you showed me.

She looked me over and moved so easily,
But in fact, fuck all that, I like the way you use me!
The evidence is missing with my "Steiny,"
Turn it on until dawn, I like the way you use me!

Soon you'll realize I'm too broke for the "supersize,"
I got no money, but the drinks are free,
And now I got the room spinning up around me.

Jump ship before sunrise,
Youíre a thirsty bitch that Iíd exercise,
Do you know this? 'Cause I know this,
That's when I noticed.

She looked me over and moved so easily,
But, in fact, fuck all that, I like the way you use me!
The evidence is missing with my "Steiny,"
Turn it on until dawn, I like the way you use me!

Donít hold me closer; thereís no need to comfort me,
Problem solve, get your girl involved
And show me you agility...ohh, ohh,
Donít want no loving, you just need the currency,
But, nothing's wrong, just keep it going on
And baby use me!

She looked me over and moved so easily,
But in fact, fuck all that, I like the way you use me!

I love the way you use me!
Track Name: 7 Weeks
You rip my guts with every sharp word,
When you use that monster
Hiding underneath your tongue,
My words donít, they donít work on you,
No, they donít work like they used to.

ëCause itís been seven weeks, seven weeks,
Oh, oh, oh, seven weeks, since I called you,
When I try now; I just canít get through.
So far, the drinks have been so strong,
No writing on the post cards,
No memories to hang on.

Sleeping in my six oí clock shadow,
People judging people so shallow,
I call you up to see what youíre doing,
To see if you wonít...

Send me your love, right through the ceiling,
I need your love, darliní this evening!
Oh, moma, moma, moma, what can I do?

Thereís a jukebox baby,
And you can play our favorite song all night,
Until your moneyís gone,
ëCause if Iím right about you darliní,
Then youíre probably laying in bed,
And your temperature is boiling,
ëCause your making things up in your head.

Itís been seven weeks, seven weeks,
Oh, oh, oh seven weeks, since I called you,
When I try now; just canít get through,
So far, the days have been so long,
But, now I got my fade on,
Screaming at you at the top of my lungs!

Fog is lifting from the old man,
I had so much fun in the trash can,
I wave my flag, but you still send your troops in,
To the war in your soul.

Send me your love, right through the ceiling
I need your love, darliní this evening!
Oh, moma, moma, moma, what can I do?

Backstage pass through these time zones,
Want you everyday, but Iím not home,
Canít really touch you through the cell phone,
Thereís so many things that you just donít know..

Itís been seven weeks, seven weeks,
Oh, oh, oh, seven weeks, since I called you,
When I try now; just canít get through.
So far, the drinks have been so strong,
Now thereís writing on the post cards,

Baby, seven weeks is just too long!
Track Name: Ashes
Itís been so long; itís hard to breathe
When the trust is gone,
And you face of steel just melts away in the weather.

You got a lot to weigh, so weigh it
You got a lot to say, just say it.
Arenít you tired of wasting fuel?
So, now Iíll hand the fuse to you!

Burn it all, letís burn it all;
Let fire fall, let fire fall,
Whatís done is done, itís in the past, itís ashes.
Iím tired of you; youíre tired of me;
I hate the things you said to me,
Now, hereís your chance to take it back, Itís ashes...

Maybe I should drive home...far from sober?
And maybe I should sleep alone,
ëCause I donít have a rubber?

You got a lot to weigh, so weigh it.
You got a lot to say, just say it.
Arenít you tired of wasting fuel?
Now Iíll hand the fuse to you!

I wonder when youíll see
How much you really mean to me,
Oh, my god, who in the hell has been washing your brain,
Just loose the girl and start again!
Maybe then, Maybe then...Maybe then, Maybe then...

Burn it all, letís burn it all;
Let fire fall, let fire fall,
Whatís done is done, Itís in the past, itís ashes.
Iím tired of you; youíre tired of me;
I hate the things you said to me,
Now, hereís your chance to take it back, Itís ashes...

Ashes, itís ashes...Ashes, itís ashesÖAshes, itís ashes...Ashes...
Oohoo, Whoa, Ashes...
Track Name: Border Town
I got started this morning,
Barely up, filled my cup while Iím yawning.
Turn on my TV, Bad news her to greet me,
They got a new list of warnings.

Itís a slow day I prefer,
And sitting under perfect weather,
But, Iím traveling through,
God knows Iíll skip the preview,
And waiting is time wasted forever

And Iíve got to keep moving on, leaving this border town,
Donít know where, but it wonít be here, I wonít be around.

Iím tired of this scene
Itís just the same different name routine,
While Iím still able, throw my cards on your table,
To show you thereís no in between.

And Iíve got to keep moving on, leaving this border town,
Donít know where, but it wonít be here, I wonít be around.

Iím growing older in the repetition,
Not knowing everything that Iím missing,
I really have to go, I really need to know.

And Iíve got to keep moving on, leaving this border town,
Donít know where, but it wonít be here, I wonít be around.

Iím growing older in the repetition,
Not knowing everything that Iím missing,
I really have to go, I really need to know.

And Iíve got to keep moving on, leaving this border town,
Donít know where, but it wonít be here, I wonít be around.

In this border town, in this border town.
Track Name: Wanna Know You
I saw a street corner angel,
Platinum problems pressed against the wall.
She paid her dues, bought stiletto shoes,
And had real mean pimp names Paul.
Well, Paul, tied her up to the railroad tracks,
'Cause he didn't get the money on time,
I heard her screaming loud from the other side of town,
And the train was coming down the line.

Exclamation points jumped out her eyes,
Rips all across her fish net thighs,
Big tears are rolling
As I'm struggling to cut her loose.

She had a little bit of karma above her left eye,
Came in the shape of a scar..
I tried to help her out with a ride back home,
But, she jumped right out of my car.

Baby, I just really want to know you,
Can't keep me away, not if you tried,
Got lost in your town, ain't in no hurry,
I'm faster than your man, he'll never catch me!

Since that night I really thought about things,
I fell for an angel with the dirty wings.
Now I have to find her, let her know how I feel,
Got to tighten up some "bid'ness" for I make it real.

Paul didn't like that I pulled her off the tracks
Real late last Saturday night.
I knew he was mad when I got to the pad,
'Cause he left me a real nice surprise.

He dropped a little message in my mailbox,
Told me where to meet him, that we had to talk,
He said I shouldn't mess with his curly locks,
And if I did again he'd pump me full of shots.

I took the meeting with that pimp named Paul,
Stabbed in the heart and watched him fall,
Went looking for my angel all over the place,
I found her in a movie by Andrew Blake.

Baby, I just really want to know you,
Can't keep me away, not if you tried,
Got lost in your town, ain't in no hurry,
I'm faster than your man, he'll never catch me!

Baby, I just really want to know you,
Can't keep me away, not if you tried,
Got lost in your town, ain't in no hurry,
I'm faster than your man, he'll never catch me!
Track Name: Keep Your Head Bangin'
This is the story
Of Rock n' Roll glory
Cause new metal bores me
So keep your head bangin'
If you're a Hesher
Where is your leather?
The louder the better
So keep your head bangin'


I'll eat your flesh
In my camaro I race for dinero
Crash and Burn
There's no survivors, when I'm the driver
My Mullet's Thick
The chicks love my meat whip, it's covered in lipstick
I rip it up
Like Kobe Bryant, I'm an anal Tyrant

(chorus).................


Burn it out
My 4 wheel dragon, is my only companion
Tear it down
I'm slammin' Bacardi, now I'm rulin' the party
I'm kickin' ass
I'm smashin' your faces, and other places
I'm hookin up
With a sex machine, she's eleventeen

(chorus).....................

(bridge)
This is the only thing that I know
I live the Life of Rock n' Roll
Never do a damn thing that I'm told
You know this ass is un-kickable
This is the story 6x
This is the story of Rock n' Roll

(chorus)....................
Track Name: Your 45
Lost in pictures Baby I'm

Lost and found
Reminiscing bout my teens

It's a postcard scene from Kona town
Sitting in my hotel room

Oooh on a cold London afternoon
My glass is red

Staring out my window
Over the streets

There's a cool breeze I freeze
Sit back in my seat

The radio is painted blue
And it's crying the bed 2 big with out you
Now that I'm done, now that

Do you remember those songs that keep us up till dawn

Slowly rocking you all the time
Baby put on your 45 and let it take over
Track Name: Punk Rock Cowboy
He was never into leather and studs,
But, he liked them all the same.
He bought his records from a magazine
Called "Metal, Death, & Pain",
He grew up strong and he grew up right,
Except in his daddy's eyes,
Who said, "Now, son don't you waste your time
With all of them evil lies."

So there he was, the first punk rock cowboy,
Always wondering how it would be
To grow up in the punk rock scene, yeah,
But, he never, ever gave up on his punk rock dreams.

So he headed off in a whiskey haze,
Going to a "Pistol Show", and all of the sudden,
There she was just standing on the edge of the road.
Sweetest girl he'd ever seen, she calls herself Irene,
Later on that little cowboy found out,
She had herself three clit rings!

So there he was, the first punk rock cowboy,
Always wondering how it would be
To grow up in the punk rock scene, yeah,
But, he never, ever gave up on his punk rock dreams.

And if you see him standing in the crowd,
Be sure to say hello,
You'll never miss him in his cowboy hat,
Maybe moshing just a little too slow.
And if you're wondering what he's about,
Ask him, it's plain to see, he'll say,
"I'd like to stay and rock 'wit y'all,
I love this here punk rock scene!"

So there he was, the first punk rock cowboy,
Always wondering how it would be
To grow up in the punk rock scene, yeah,
But, he never, ever gave up on his punk rock,
No, he never, gave up on his punk rock,
No, he never, gave up on his punk rock dreams.
Track Name: Look What I Found
Look what I found in Kona Town,
While the sky gets weary and the sun goes down,
It's summer living, oh, it's the season
To get your body naked and then start screaming,
Around the clock 'cause we don't stop,
Ya 'gotta keep it moving like a porno plot.
All the drinks to fix ya, it's a perfect mixture,
You lean to the dise to get a clearer picture.

I know, yes I know, that I have played the fool,
I know, yes I know, I'm so lonely because of youÖ..

Here come the night, don't forget to invite
All those girls with a horny appetite.
Now, get risquÈ on a holiday,
What's the sense of working hard
if you never get to play?
So, give a lick with no politics,
Turn yourself into an "X" rated lunatic!
I like it daring; I keep staring,
Got my eyes focused on the skirt she's wearing.

I know, yes I know, that I have played the fool,
I know, yes I know, I'm so lonely because of youÖare you?

Heated evening starts to escalate,
Rolling on and on 'til we evaporate,
And, I've been missing, oh, I've been missing
The way your body moves in those late night positions,
I hit repeat on arena beats;
Make my way through the crowd in the summer heat,
The house is shaking, furniture is breaking,
Wake up in the morning with my body aching!

I know, yes I know, that I have played the fool,
I know, yes I know, I'm so lonely because of youÖ

I know, yes I know, that you've been lonely too.
