We lost Phife and we lost Merle Say, these things come in threes And you look like the type of guy That might just catch the disease The type of guy to rest in peace I know enough to Not believe in our insidious fate The one that comes alive when You’re about to make your escape It’s a fatal mistake And the sirens sing You don’t belong Just so you know It won’t be long Please don’t lose me now I’m still delivering Head stuck in the clouds That I’ve been livin’ in And you can’t plot this chorus Any better than I This mix of red and blue will Try to hide the ugliest truth The man who broods alone and Uses when he’s working the booth He’s forever aloof Please don’t lose me now Just a disc in a vault Stacked against a thousand tents That were pitched and then folded The darkness slowly eroded You’ve got me Where you want me In between the gift and curse That money brought me I I have an ending And a beginning to a generation’s memory Please don’t lose me now I’m still delivering Head stuck in the clouds That I’ve been livin’ in And you can’t plot this chorus Any better than I Please don’t lose me now I’m still delivering Head stuck in the clouds That I’ve been livin’ in And you can’t plot this chorus Any better than I

Strap bricks on my feet again I will take the low road This path's worn down and beaten in I know it well 'Round the bend we go I know this fo sho I could love you a little more Love you a little more Can you feel that sting Try practicing Oh, that hollow sound Feels like home Waiting around To find my soul And all of these empty days Slowly fade away like Last sip wiped the window clean I'm feeling good now Sunshine went and killed the dream What do I do now I pretend to know Say the world moves slow And you could love me a little more Love me a little more Can you feel that sting Every time you sing You say Oh, that hollow sound Feels like home Waiting around To find my soul And all of these empty days Slowly fade away like And all of these empty days Slowly fade away like

Wife doesn't wanna be seen with me When I'm packing Lord help the man who crosses me When I'm packing Yes, I know my rights Whatcha think, I'm dumb Whatcha think I'm not onto your game As a man of faith My compass leads me North And I pray I got my AR-15 My Diet Dr. Thunder What more could I need I can't work no more And the funny part is It's just little old me Stephen from Strawberry Creek And they wanna hear my voice Favorite store got robbed last week Now I'm packing God bless the thug that crosses me When I'm packing Yes, I've paid the price I lost my job Lost my leg last February We can talk about pain I got my AR-15 My Diet Dr. Thunder Y'all know what I mean I can't work no more And the funny part is It's just little old me Stephen from Strawberry Creek And they wanna hear my voice Stephen from Strawberry Creek And they wanna hear my voice Used to read the Journal 'Til they filled it up with lies Got old friends 'cross the county line That I don't recognize The sheriff told me Leave the gun at home What more could I need I can't work no more And the funny part is It's just little old me Stephen from Strawberry Creek And they wanna hear my voice Stephen from Strawberry Creek And they wanna hear my voice

Turn Me Off 04:17
All you think about is sex Cuz you’re a man And that’s all you think about All I care about is money That’s all this cruel world taught me how to count Not the dreams I had when I was young I love no one else but me Cuz this is America And that’s how it’s s’posed to be I heard freedom makes you free That one day we’ll own all the land and sea Not the streets where our own people sleep Own the only thing that you believe I could be my best friend Live out on the west end I don’t need to pretend Everything’s OK I’ll keep you with me Oh, Lord, have mercy Don’t know but I’ll be Better someday Turn me off I heard we made Watergate With all the televisions we turned on Time to set the record straight Just tryin’ to give the people what they want Every night we turn the same news on It’s raining somewhere And another daughter’s gone I could be my best friend Live out on the west end I don’t need to pretend Everything’s OK I’ll keep you with me Oh, Lord, have mercy Don’t know but I’ll be Better someday Turn me off Turn me on I could be my best friend Live out on the west end I don’t need to pretend Everything’s OK I’ll keep you with me Oh, Lord, have mercy Don’t know but I’ll be Better someday We could get arrested Import, deport, tested Cool, calm and collected We didn’t harm a soul Looking like some kind of madness Saw an ad for a last kiss Just a bit out of practice I swear I’ve got it under control Turn me off Turn me on Turn me off

Took a left on Christmas Lake Rd I didn’t tell a single soul But you know I was looking for you I remember the curve like the note I took too long to write you And I thought you’d faded away Be All that you wanted to be But where did you go While the rest of us were floating around the sun Speak I’ve never heard your voice Quiet and still like The trees when they grow tired of breathing Fix up the hole in your heart Then operate on me again I’d never leave you alone But I ain’t been feeling like me I ain’t been feeling like me Hey, E I ain’t been feeling like me

Here comes a noun Here comes a verb They’ll intertwine Then here comes a verse There goes a dream Let’s watch it die All we ever wanted Was for someone to lie It sounds like a hit Get rid of the hiss Let’s buy a van For every tour you’ve missed Dan found a job Nick found a band Peter found a new girl Sean lost his command You get what you want You get what you want You get what you want But what’ll it be Just play the guitar Just lay down a beat Just sing out your heart Then admit defeat Play the new song Jump into the pit Buy a new shirt And lean in for the kiss The record just sold The record just bombed Your friends in the suburbs Taped that show you were on You get what you want You get what you want You get what you want But what’ll it be Here comes a noun Here comes a verb Fall into line Cuz they learned all the words They learned every word They learned every word They learned every word They learned every word They learned every word They learned every word They learned every word There goes a dream Let’s watch it die All we ever wanted was

If I die before I wake Take me back to wintertime The moment I first saw your face You put your hand in mine It's been so many years, I forgot Just how pretty you are Keep my feet in pace with yours I always hated exercise But I would walk 900 miles Before I'd lead a separate life, and It's up to you to Tell me when you want me to leave I broke into your room I wasn't looking for you I'm holdin' it together, but I can't keep it together, girl Holdin' it together, but I can't keep it together, girl Holdin' it together, but I can't keep it together, girl Holdin' it together, but If you lied right to my face I would be a happy man That would mean that you love me Enough to think I'd understand The weight of the world, according To the hole in your brain You say that I like to write About everything except you But that is not exactly true I simply lacked the fortitude And now you'll hear, the red's Coming out of the blues I wrote every single song So I could sing it wrong I'm holdin' it together, but I can't keep it together, girl Holdin' it together, but I can't keep it together, girl Holdin' it together, but I can't keep it together, girl Holdin' it together, but So glad you're not with him It doesn't mean that he's not looking If I die before I wake Take me back to wintertime The moment I first saw your face You put your hand in mine And I

I can't get anyone to watch The Ben Stiller Show with me It's probably why the thing got cancelled No romance, no dancefloor Every time I turn on the TV I see my reflection briefly Before it flickers into a movie Don't matter if I'm fake or real Bought a one-way ticket to Aspen, California I was born and formed with nostalgia In the worst way In the words that say, Yeah I'll do my time Before my time does me in Ripped a little Beatle When I tried to fit the needle pretty Into a hallway Friends say I be needy But it's Janice who be overfeeding That's what they all say Built in '92 Razed in '93 They took all the lovin' out And when they put it back in There's none left for me Bought a one-way ticket to Aspen, California I was born and formed with nostalgia In the worst way In the words that say, Yeah I'll do my time Before my time does me in Bought a one-way ticket to Aspen, California I was born and formed with nostalgia In the worst way In the words that say, Yeah I'll do my time Before my time does me in

Sunflowers 03:58
That’s where my dad used to play drums In the basement of the café They tore it down Ten years ago Next to the bowling alley where My little brother used to work And the parking lot Where I asked you out Across the street from The bait shop my friend’s dad owned It closed down within a year Down the road from the bus stop A small little hut that I rarely went inside A little bit further around the bend is where Our old house is sitting still We’d make a fire and plant sunflower seeds And I would sing Country Roads Take Circle Rd and You’ll get to the narrows Where I saw a young kid fall in But his dad acted quick He took a dip And carried his boy back to land He said, listen, ayo I’ll say when to go OK, alright Sounds good to me Plant your seed, and Watch it grow OK, alright Sounds good to me Sounds good to me … Bruce used to have To the Sky In the tape deck Julie is listening still I used to be friends with Their kid forever We’d only fight Every once in awhile Last week, I helped him Move into a new apartment Carried a couch through the doors Restarting life all alone on an island My shirt was glued By sweat to my skin, and then Looking upwards Life ran in a circle Twenty-two years back to this Microphones carry to the back of the room But can they reach The people we loved Listen, ayo I’ll say when to go OK, alright Sounds good to me Love will be waiting when You stop looking OK, alright Sounds good to me Sounds good to me This road I’m traveling on Is like a mirror out of time I hope you can rewind A mirror out of time

Time is slippin’ like a ghost Just me, my friends and Captain Oats Walk alone along the pier I think I left my summer here Look back For my heart Look back For my heart That night you had too much to drink I thought you’d get the best of me But every smile I ever gave You seemed to bottle up and save Look back For my heart Look back For my This morning took my boat out deep I crossed the sea and left the reef It won’t be long before they call It’s good to get your friends involved Look back Lost my head Look back Lost me head Sometimes God Puts an angel on your shoulder And the least that you could do Is let her know you know she’s there Sometimes God Puts an angel on your shoulder And the least that you could do Is tell her that you love her Sometimes God Puts an angel on your shoulder And the least that you could do Is let her know you know she’s there Sometimes God Puts an angel on your shoulder And the least that you could do Is tell her that you love her Sometimes God Puts an angel on your shoulder And the least that you could do Is let her know you know she’s there Sometimes God Puts an angel on your shoulder And the least that you could do Is tell her that you love her
