Track Name: Bridgeburn
We burned the bridges to our town
No home, no hope, no golden crown
We're lonesome, but we ramble on
There's no one left to tie us down

Verse 2:
I burned the bridges to this town,
No home and now no you around
I'm lonesome, but I ramble on
There's no one left, there's no more sound.
Track Name: Tail Chase
we all race
we race around in circles
trying to place in first
trying to make it last

we all chase
chase our tails
keep eating our tails
'til we got no tails
Track Name: DT Bros
Part 1:
I have a feeling things are going to get crazy town
I'm always into it as long as my baby's down
I'm with the music and we're just not faded out
The sun is shining, but I can't imagine laying down

I feel that tonight's never long enouth
They'll never catch us with the lights on
Let's keep it going til tomorrow gets started up
I won't let 'em catch us with the lights on

I have a feeling things are going to get crazy town
I'm always into it as long as my baby's down
I'm with the music and we're just not faded out
The sun is shining, but I can't imagine laying down
Track Name: Keys
You're light years
Beside me
Stretch your foot across the country
Just so I can touch it

I don't mind if
my mind is
Where I getcha
Cause I got a vivid imagination

Being wide awake
Is a lot to take
I didn't mean take the bliss
You had when you didn't notice

I'll be right here
Like always
I wouldn't call it waiting
It's an open invitation

Chorus:

Take my keys with you where you you go
You can keep them hidden or come open up my door
Take these moments with you where you go
You can keep them hidden
Or find more behind my door

Verse 2:

The trap springs when they're clapping, when you act so you act, then you're trapped

So, if a bad man,
Just like me, made you feel so bad, but like everything's all good

Without them, without anyone
Don't need anyone to be happy

I'll be right here, like always
I wouldn't call it waiting
It's an open invitation.

Chorus:
Take my keys with you where you you go
You can keep them hidden or come open up my door
Take these moments with you where you go
You can keep them hidden
Or find more behind my door
(x2)
Track Name: God Future
Verse 1:
Joey's hidin' in his pouch again
poppin' pills, writin' raps on his couch again
avoiding people on the comfort of his house again
but, eventually gotta get up and out with them

I probably don't like you, but I might pretend
and you probably like me, you think we might be friends.
but, I can barely leave the house without a healthy dose
of liquor, pills and powders for my ass to cope

yea, I know I'm a fuckin' asshole, pass the coke
what you call a disease, I call an antidote
expensive habits, but, I spend to live
and I live it to win it, so bitch, I spend to win

if I'ma do it, I'm a do it and I'll do it right
and I'll do it right now, I've been through the fight
and I'm through with the fight, so, I'ma do it like,
it's the last thing I'm doin', not for you to like.

Chorus:
I've been bleedin', I've killed a fetus
I've sacrificed, I'm kinda like Jesus
Yea, I sound elitist, But, y'all don't see it
So, I don't wanna see ya' damn faces, I'm leavin'

Verse 2:

They just don't get it, but, I get it 'cause I get around, been around many faces
And it's better when I get high, so next time, so, let's just get silly wasted.
Face it, if you read my early pages, then you'd get it right away and cut a line,
Put it in my face, just to erase it

So, let's bake a cake and freebase, work around the bloody nose
Stay awake to make it, never sleep, I don't wanna miss the Truman show
Whether moving slow or fast, MDMA and dimetap,
Last one up, 'cause I'm a fuckin animal, no time to crash

I'm day bender, blending my days together, live a long life, in a short time
And the whole time, got both eyes open to the truth on both sides
Hope died when I was a youth a whole life, poached right in front of me,
Never say a thing about it, thought of giving, still think about it
Papa did it, motherfucker was a bitch about it, better off without 'em
I finally got it figured out

I figured out I can trust 'em all, but they can't trust me, so fuck em all,
I'm high as fuck, don't bust my balls, I press the red button when you try to call
I can't relate to your white people problems,
got the white skin, but, I seen the bottom
Got the white skin, but, different problems
So I get fucked up, just to hear you taking
Track Name: Seww Kwwwllll
Verse 1:
You would be so cool, if you weren't so cool
You would be so damn cool, if you weren't so fucking cool
You would be the number one, first place coolest if you weren't so cool
But, you're so fucking cool, you ain't got time to be cool

Chorus:
You would be so cool, if you weren't so cool (repeat)

Verse 2:
I know it must feel cool to feel cool for once
But, you lost your cool, when you got cool
Used to be so cool, then you got so cool.
You would be the number one coolest, if you weren't so cool.
Track Name: Coming Home
By 2023 the conversation's dead
We sit around and punctuate instead

And every move you make is fuelling the machine
It fills you with fatigue arresting all your dreams

(I'm coming home
Tonight I'm coming home) <-- repeat
Track Name: Trubbo
Verse 1:

Trouble when I hear the lighter, beer cracked in my face,
So dependent on change, why can't I behave
Smoke my self self conscious round hunnies, never get sex
Hate myself anyways, let's just get wrecked

All my fella's in the place throw your drinks up
Ladies drink up, 'til you gotta throw your drinks up
Show up, already smashed and loud
Last time I passed out before I had to bounce
.
My homies think I'm lazy and I'm backin' out
But, when they worked all day, I smoked half an ounce
I'm tired, don't last as long as I used to
don't ask what's going on, I'm tuned, dude

Wake up, hungover, caffeine, nicotine
Life sucks when sober, smoke weed, get fatigued
jager bomb at lunch, take a nap after eating
rise and shine, make the call,
there's always something more I need.

Chorus:
Oh, I feel you creeping up and trying to sleep
and everything is spinning round in my mind
and you only seem to come around and dumb it down and fuck it up
As soon as I hear the sound, there's trouble

Verse 2:
I can't avoid it no more I'm so bored that it finds me
Try to be a good boy, but, I forfeited my mind
To be contorted, it's important to distort it sometimes
Just do it right kids, might as well enjoy the ride,

Snorting lines is way over rated though, when you paid in full
For the same price, you could send a family to space to see angels
And aliens, the brain is an amazing little mainframe,
Just download some chemicals and let it go play,

Take your dreams outside ya head and see magic,
In a cuddle puddle, everyone's friends beneath blankets
Sure you'll hug a couple people, you'll be so enthusiastic
Empathetic, loving every minute up until you crash

Just pace yourself, know your dealer or your face could melt
Take a sec and go and read testimonials sages left
On pages meant to show you how to go about your great ascent
Get sent to the cosmos, and wander round your brain a bit

Chorus x2:
Track Name: Rihanna's Lighter
Baby don't stress
I got your lighter right here
I got your fire right here--
I'm talkin bout OH
I'm talkin bout Yeahhh

Precious little
Diamond in the rough
Tough to leave alone
I can never get enough

Tasty little
Apple of my eye
Candy coated lips
Addicted to the sugar rush

Make me make you make it there ooooh
I get you, So just get me anytime anywhere

Make me make you make it there ooooh
I get you you get me no matter how we get there

Baby it's cool
I got your blanky right here
I got you with me right here
And suddenly it's clear
You got me all OH
You got me saying YEAH Yeah

Something's right something's real
I never wanna feel another face
Nothing feels anything like every time we in each others space

I'm talking bout OH
I'm talking bout OH
I'm talking bout ohhhh
I'm talking bout OH

Make me make you make it there ooooh
I get you, So just get me anytime anywhere

Make me make you make it there ooooh
I get you you get me no matter how we get there
