Track Name: The Beauty of Nothing
The Beauty of Nothing

I was walking around in my head
I was looking for something to do
I was brushing away the cobwebs
I was an animal in my own zoo
I was catching a glimpse in my eyes
I was looking for something to see
Could have been day, it could have been night
Could have not even been me
The beauty of nothing, the beauty of nothing

I was playing the game with no one
I was winning and losing and a draw
I was breaking my brain about why
I was playing at all
There’s a way that I think I should be
Its a concept that’s rooted in sand
But the moment the wind comes along
I no longer am
The beauty of nothing, the beauty of nothing
Track Name: Ghost
Ghost

There’s a ghost in my head
There’s a ghost in my head
There’s a ghost in my head
Oh yeah

I can’t feel anything
I can’t feel anything
I can’t feel anything
But I can feel you
I can feel you

There’s a ghost in my head
There’s a ghost in my head
There’s a ghost in my head
Oh yeah
I can’t feel anything
I can’t feel anything
I can’t feel anything
But I can feel you
I can feel you
I can feel you
Track Name: Rachel
Rachel

Hey hey little girlfriend, want to see my new girlfriend?
I brought her all the way from China
And hey, she looks a lot like you
Oh my little girlfriend, she’s a much better girlfriend
I don’t have to pretend that I’m in love with her
And yeah, she looks a lot like you

I call her Rachel cause she looks a lot like you
She gives me good love with a shot of CO2
Her name is Rachel and she looks a lot like you
Oh yeah, she looks a lot like you

Hey hey little girlfriend, you want to be with my girlfriend?
Just say the word and she will come to life for you
Oh yeah, she’ll come to life for you
Oh my little girlfriend, on the outside looking in
What does that feel like baby, watching your man in love?
Oh yeah, I’m in latex love

I call her Rachel cause she looks a lot like you
She gives me good love with a shot of CO2
Her name is Rachel and she looks a lot like you
Oh yeah, she looks a lot like you

I call her Rachel cause she looks a lot like you
She gives me good love with a shot of CO2
Her name is Rachel and she looks a lot like you
Oh yeah, she looks a lot like you
Track Name: Lemonade
Lemonade

I took her home, I kicked her tires
She was a lemon, she was a lemon
Oh oh, I made lemonade

I took her home into the bedroom
She was a lemon, she was a lemon
Oh oh, I made lemonade

I got her drunk and tried again
She was a lemon, she was a lemon
Oh oh, I made lemonade

I took her dancing to the disco
She was a lemon, she was a lemon
Oh oh, I made lemonade

We went to islands, we went to paradise
She was a lemon, she was a lemon
Oh oh, I made lemonade

I’m doing 30, I’m doing 30
It ain’t no fun here, it ain’t no fun here
Oh oh, I made lemonade

I took her home, I kicked her tires
She was a lemon, she was a lemon
Oh oh, I made lemonade

I’m a rich man, he’s a poor man
That’s the way it is, sorry that’s the way it is
I’ve got everything, he got nothing
That’s the way it is, sorry that’s the way it is
See the fire in his eyes, see the fire in his eyes

I was born here, he’s illegal
That’s the way it is, sorry that’s the way it is
I got a big house, he lives outside
That’s the way it is, sorry that’s the way it is
See the fire in his eyes, see the fire in his eyes

Ahh, ahh, related, related, related, related
Ahh, ahh, related, related, related, related

He wants what I already have
That’s too bad, sorry that’s too bad
I’m a working man, he’s a working man
That’s the way it is, sorry that’s the way it is
See the fire in his eyes, I can tell that he wants mine

We’re supposed to be all the same here
That ain’t how it is, sorry that ain’t how it is
I’m supposed to embrace him
But I got myself all gated in
See the fire in his eyes, he’s going to try to take what’s mine

Ahh, ahh, related, related, related, related
Ahh, ahh, related, related, related, related
Track Name: All I Want (Touch)
All I Want (Touch)

Don’t want to meet your best girlfriend
Don’t want to meet your mom and dad
Don’t want to listen to your chit chat
Don’t want to know about your plans
All I want to do, all I want to do is touch you

Don’t want to take you out to dinner
Don’t want to hear your favorite song
Don’t want to ever take you shopping
Don’t want to share you with my bong
All I want to do, all I want to do is touch you

Don’t want to take you on vacation
Don’t want to take you anywhere
We’re probably not going to be together that long
See here’s the thing, I don’t care
I don’t care your money, I don’t care about your clothes
I don’t care about your chest if its real or silicone
I don’t care about your future, I don’t care about your past
I don’t care I’m old enough to be your daddy’s dad
All I want to do, all I want to do is touch you
Track Name: I Don't Know
I Don’t Know
What you, what you, what you, what you going to do big man?
What you, what you, what you, what you going to do now?
What you, what you, what you, what you going to do big man?
What you, what you, what you, what you going to do now?

Well see here’s the thing I saw a guy and I got butterflies and just like that my life took a nosedive
I was hoping it was something I ate or a nightmare and it was all a mistake but no, it was daylight and I was wide awake

What you, what you, what you, what you going to do big man? I don’t know What you, what you, what you, what you going to do now?
What you, what you, what you, what you going to do big man? I don’t know What you, what you, what you, what you going to do now?

I got a kid and a wife and a big old Harley bike so I know this just can’t be right
Man, I like football and guns and manly stuff. Maybe I better go talk to a priest or something

What you, what you, what you, what you going to do big man? I don’t know What you, what you, what you, what you going to do now?
What you, what you, what you, what you going to do big man? I don’t know What you, what you, what you, what you going to do now?

Yo, I’d rather be dead than have that guy in my head but I just can’t stop thinking about jumping him in bed
Oh my I said to me this just can’t be, maybe someone slipped me some ecstasy
Or it could be a midlife crisis and my testosterone fell. Oh Jesus save me, I don’t want to go to hell

What you, what you, what you, what you going to do big man? I don’t know What you, what you, what you, what you going to do now? I don’t know
Track Name: Tonight
Tonight

Tonight, tonight, the dogs are out tonight
Looking things over, get down Rover
The dogs are out tonight
Tonight, tonight, the hounds are howling tonight
Checking the action, begging for attraction
The hounds are howling tonight

My baby don’t care, my baby don’t care
You can stand on the corner, you can walk on water
My baby don’t care, my baby don’t care

Tonight, tonight, the leather boys are posing tonight
Pulling up their collars, spending all their dollars
The leather boys are posing tonight

My baby don’t care, my baby don’t care
You can stand on the corner, you can walk on water
My baby don’t care, my baby don’t care

Tonight, tonight, she’s waiting for me tonight
Standing in the shadows lighting up a Marlboro
She’s waiting for me tonight

My baby don’t care, my baby don’t care
You can stand on the corner, you can walk on water
My baby don’t care, my baby don’t care, my baby don’t care
You can stand on the corner, you can walk on water
My baby don’t care, my baby don’t care
My baby don’t care, my baby don’t care
Track Name: Take Me To Your Leader
Take Me To Your Leader

I took a pill the other day
Passed out cold and everything got hazy
When I woke up and looked around
The world I knew had gone crazy
And I said hey man, take me to your leader

Some Rasta guy in a yellow cab
Picked me up and took me to Chicago
He said over there is Jesus Christ
He’s kind of hard to recognize in the top coat
I said hey man, take me to your leader
Aw hey man, take me to your leader

Jesus said he used to be the man to see
But even he can’t do nothing
Everyone’s gone Babylon, and bottom line
And one for one, its fucked up
I said hey Jesus, take me to your leader
Yo Father, take me to your leader
Aw hey man, take me to your leader
