Track Name: Charla Jive
Ain't nothing to die for
If no one is around
I cant understand
why all you make is sound

Coolin' off,
Layin' out,
Forget about
All of that

Charla jive, entretien bidon

Coolin off
Layin' out,
Forget about
All of that

Charla jive, entretien bidon

Every time magic hits me
I feel my way beneath the surface
Every time magic hits me
A fool forget he was blue

My perrier , your perrier
Cold perrier, cold perrier

Some kind of desire
For Andy Perrier
She's making more time
With every word she say

She's coolin' off
Layin' out
Forget about
Forgot about

Charla jive, entretien bidon

She's coolin' off
Layin' out
Forget about
Forgot about

Charla jive, entretien bidon

Every time magic hits me
I feel my way beneath the surface
Every time magic hits me
A fool forget he was blue

My perrier , your perrier
Cold perrier, cold perrier
Break bottles high, break bottles high
Dont lose your shoes, dont lose your shoes
Track Name: Worst Job
Worst part of waking up
is the best part
of waking up
is the worst part

Best part of working hard
is the best part of working hard
is the worst part

Easy your help for somebody else
its the saddest of work
when its easy

Harder to follows
work without the dollar
self is the help
thats the worst part
best part, worst part, best part

Hard part to plans
the best part to plan
when your making plans
its the easy part but

Easy to does it
don't get nothing doing
putting in the work is the hard part, best part

Don't you listen to me when I'm down
Please don't listen to me when I'm down
Don't you listen to me when I'm down
with a crown on my head
I'd be better off dead

Hardest is working hard for yourself
when theres nobody else
to say its worth it

Easy to swallow
wait until tomorrow
doing all this work it isn't working

Dont you listen to me when I'm down
Please dont listen to me when I'm down
Dont you listen to me when I'm down
with a crown on my head
I'd be better off dead

What I talk about
When I talk about
What I talk about
When I talk about it

Self is the help
there ain't nobody else
everybody is yourself
and thats the best part

Lone Ranger working hard for himself
and theres nobody else
and thats the best part, worst part
Track Name: Sitting/Shaking
Instead of shaking
just sitting shaking
why don't you just go somewhere
and find somebody you can keep?

Instead of moving
just crawling moving
pack yourself a suitcase
paint it white
and then call it a sheep

Instead of wounding
just winding wounding
when did you get so wound up?

Now i'm not one to
turn down suprises
accepting when the author's you
and when the one suprised is me

I'm sticky caught up
but with my shoes off
time heals everything
I'm hoping it can heal the stuff I think

Instead of cutting
the classic cutting
why dont you just cut it out?
why dont you just cut it out?

I'm still biding all my time
I'm biting off my tongue
I'm fed up I mean I'm full
I've had enough I'm done

Instead of turkey
or chicken jerkey
Why dont you just find yourself a man that you can call a wife?

Dont mean to say that
I mean to say that
After all its just a story we make up and call it life

Instead of shaking
just sitting shaking
one day I'm gonna shake it off
I swear I'm gonna shake it off

I'm still biding all my time
I'm biting off my tongue
I'm fed up I mean I'm full
I've had enough I'm done

But if you want another break
you got some bones to shake
remember that earthquake of '94?
remember when they told us about the war?
And what about the time in '63
when deaths were big on your TV?
Track Name: Getaway Hustler
Paranoid, scared, leapin' out the back door
You can't even trust the whites of your own eyes
Terrified, there in the middle of my sangha
If I dont get something I just might just break

Getaway Hustler
Go on and get away
Theres nothing here for you to see

Getaway Hustler
Go on and get away
Theres nothing here for you to see
Theres nothing going on with me
Theres something going on with me

Settle down, strange thinking is a constant
Now I think I know what gives men all their might
Rabbit hole wanes, circus is a darkening
If I dont get something, I just might just

Getaway Hustler
Go on and get away
Theres nothing here for you to see

Getaway Hustler
Go on and get away
Theres nothing here for you to see
Theres nothing going on with me

Theres never nothing wrong
Unless its going on with me
And no one's ever wrong
If they can get along with me

Dry erase stars, give it up for what now
A second of relief and I wont have my head
Pitch black stairs, creeping down a burnt bridge
Catapult my life back if you open door

Getaway Hustler
Go on and get away
Theres nothing here for you to see

Getaway Hustler
Go on and get away
Theres nothing here for you to see
Theres nothing going on with me

Theres never nothing wrong
Unless its going on with me
And I'm not never strong
But I can hold you down you see
And no one's ever wrong
If they can get along with me
Theres something going on with me

Track Name: Waste Time
I'm done wasting my time, done wasting all my time, again
Track Name: Until Tomorrow
Until tomorrow,
I wont be coming back
I wont be coming back
back onto you

Into my sorrow
I'll keep on running back
I'll keep on running back
until I'm through

Oh well and oh, tomorrow you'll
Oh well and oh, well I dont know

Until tomorrow
I'll let my fangs get long
I'll let my fangs get long
thats what I'll do

Until I borrow
on someone else's time
on someone else's time
I'll be like you

Oh well and oh, tomorrow you'll
Oh well and oh, well I dont know

I'm here today until tomorrow,
I wont come back again
(among the dead and dying)
Track Name: Waiting On My Man
I'm waiting on my man
and this time I got guns
bad melodies
elevator ate my hand

Waiting on my man
Waiting on my man

I'm waiting on my man
to carry out my dues
Norma lost her ear again
snortin' up that bad news

Just like my man
She's dressed like my man

Man, oh man, says my man
anyone whose anyone knows everyone is no one at all
Goddamn oh man, says my man
anyone whose anyone knows everyone and no ones at fault
'cept my man

Slow
Waiting on my man
relieve my thirsty dry
Jeanie lost her leg again
from shootin' her hopes too high

Waiting on her man
Waiting on her man

I've employed a team
diviners find my honey milk
soon before my arms grow tired
and feet digress to silt

Waiting on my man
Got about a thousand dollars in my hand

Man, oh man, says my man
everyone whose anyone thinks everyone is thinking bout them
Goddamn oh man, says my man
everyone whos anyone knows none of it will count when your dead

I'm buying all I can
before the heat says no
runnin through my brains and veins
is where I stash my dough
thanks to my man

You can call, on my man
