Track Name: Show Me The Way
Show me the way
Hand to my face
Show me to my place
In a young man’s game
But the high score’s going down

I can feel the fire burning
Trying to stay alive
Like a spider in the bathtub
Trying to survive
I can feel the fire burning
Trying to stay alive

I can wait a thousand lifetimes
To finally get inside
Steam is rising from the shower
Guard me from my eyes
I can wait a thousand lifetimes
Keep me from inside
Track Name: Embassy Suites
Embassy Suites
Sweeter than black sugar
Or even brown sugar, baby
White wine
Embassy Suites
Sweet as honey fruit flavor
Dripping into a fruit cup

Embassy Suites
Sweeter than black sugar
Or even brown sugar, baby
White wine
Embassy Suites
I tell you living room is separate
Like in heaven above

And every single morning
I’ll be lining up for French toast
Every single afternoon
I’m down there at the swimming hole
Every single night I’m watching HBO
Every single channel’s showing SVU
Track Name: Sounds Good
Cool
Great, thanks
See you then
Sounds good

You beg me, beg me:
Dole out the “babys”
I’ll cutcha check--it’s worth the same in
Emotional gold.

I give ya, give ya
Fruit for the peeling
Pick out the 3 or 4 sensations I’m feeling.
A pomegranate to savor
A succulent tone.

You send me, send me Italian dressings,
French accroutronments & Ranchy confessions.
Ne’vinaigrette my chat flavor calories
Down low.
Track Name: Watching You Work
Flip it open
Light it grey and watch it spin
I’ll wait for you.
Enter your prefix
Make sure it’s a secret
You can leave a clue.
Patience blessing
While you wait for your Preference to
Come to you.
Your fingers dancing
Like magic, you create a sequence
Made by you.

Control a canvas
Tap Creation, hold your space
And see the view.
Choose a menu
Take your time...your table will be
Open soon.
Try alfresco
You don’t need to leave just to
Choose a View.
That’s outstanding
Your beauty won’t quit when you
Leave the room

I am watching you work
You’ll get it right the first time
I am watching you work
What are you trying to do?
Track Name: Hunchback
Come back
I’mma come back and do it again
Gonna ring that bell & pour molten lead
Over heads of my enemies & friends
Oh yeah, I’m a hunchback
And I’m up in the tower again
I need a gypsy lady in my sanctuary
Play your tambourine and set me free.

Come back
I’mma come back and do it again
Gonna ring that bell & pour molten lead
Over heads of my enemies & friends
Oh yeah, I’m a hunchback
And I’m up with the statues again
They can’t see me weep
I can’t hear them speak.
Why could I not be made of stone like thee?

Listen to me
Listen to me, baby
Listen to me ‘cause I gotta come back
They’re whippin’ on me
They’re whippin’ on me, baby
Give me water cuz ya know I‘m hunchback
Track Name: I Like Your Type
Hey calculator--
You can put away the whiteboard
You gotta taste for the selection
And I’m liking your type.
Sooner or later,
You’ll find out what you’re looking for.
You got my face in your reflection
I’m liking your type.

So get up...and sit back down.
I want everybody in the place to feel like shit
Ain’t no party here--no need to hang around
I want everybody in the place to feel like shit
Track Name: Business As Usual
Business as usual
You take out the trash & then you go.
Business is natural
You count all the pieces when you know
But you can’t get without a businessman
You listen to your better touch.
But there’s no business usual
You can’t even listen to your love.

Our business can go ahead without you
It’s just another reason to slip away
Our business can go ahead so don’t you
Let it just be reason to slip away.
Track Name: Kiss On The Lips
Savor the flavor
Kiss on the lips
The only red place
In the middle of my face
I wait for ya, face forward
Kiss on the lips
Chappy need a touch of Blistex;
Cigarette, Dentyne Ice

Don’t want it on my forehead
Or my cheek;
Don’t want it on my neck--
I ain’t a vampire.
Warm blood hot on my lips
I need a kiss, baby, I’m on fire.

Don’t want it on my hand
Forget about my nose
Don’t want it on my eyes--
I ain’t a baby havin’ bedtime.
I’m a grown man with a burnin’ on my lips
Baby, I’m on fire

Can you extinguish me?
Can you wet me down?
Baby baby, I’m on fire.
Can’t you tell it’s a five alarm?
Can you smell the burning
When you’re close to my face?
Baby baby, I’m on fire.
Track Name: Commando Command-W
I made a wish
That I hoped never came true
Made a plan for the plan to fall through
I said it’s cool
Despite that it wasn’t that cool
I’m cool with lyin’ about cool

Talk fast, baby
I‘ll never let on
The bus’ll get me there yet
And yet I didn’t get on
The sign says the club is Command-O
But instead I just ESCed by the window
I don’t have to tell ‘em the truth
I don’t have to tell’em
I’m Commando Command-W

I told a tale
A tale that I told ‘em I knew
You know that tellin’ ‘em would make the tale true
I was produced
Who knew they’d be buyin’ it used
I heard my hunting knife is worth a thing or two
Track Name: Toyota Take Me Away
Her tail’s been draggin’
She needs a jumpstart to get turned on
Upholstery is saggin’
She ain’t got the shoes to carry me home

Body’s in a mint condition
But her insides tore her apart
When she turns over each mornin’
I secretly hope she won’t start

She left me high ‘n’ dry by the desert
Left me nothin’ in the tank but the sand
No headlights, no lanterns
Gonna try catch a ride from Japan

From the stars of Corolla
To the moons of Solara
Toyota’s gonna take me away

Pioneer singin’ on the 505
When the music started fading away
One by one, her lights went out
Left me staring at an empty display

Every last one of my dollars
Showered her with things I could buy
Scented oils, routine care
I’d be kissing my investment goodbye
I never cared if she’s coming or going
Her drivin’s always suited me fine
I wouldn’t know where to go
If she didn’t take me
Gonna try to start her one more time

From the stars of Corolla
To the moons of Solara
To the hot skies of Altima
To the seas of Elantra
Toyota’s gonna take me away
Track Name: Memory Bliss
Say the name that’s the same
As my mama’s baby
Read it, repeat it
Install my memory,
Hide my shame that I came
Outta nowere to be
Take my phone, my address
Just register me

Big hips
And outlined lips
Acer netbook at your
Fingertips
I’d shave 64 meg off of my
DRAM chips for a kiss
Memory bliss

Big hips
And outlined lips
I needja teach me two more
User tips
Before I pack up my Targus
Can you install this disk?
