Track Name: Extra Ordinary Machines
its not a question of you or me, we are extra ordinary (machines)

we get so high in our minds
tear it apart

its not a question of you or me, we are extra ordinary
(machines)
Track Name: Hush
two years to the day
living with you hasn't been the same
baby blue eyes got me open
drinking smoking straight west coasting
isn't that what a man is for
chauvinistic point of course
my green eyes got me floored
this wasn't what I bargained for
but I know that you work with that sucker
i've seen that wily motherfucker
trying to make moves with his motorbike
now where the hell were you last night girl

everyday in the streets
hustling just to eat
feeding my baby girl
without her, aint no world
but you aint treat me right
tellin lies just to fight
watching me sell this weed
just to make these ends meet

i'm getting played out (2x)
straight up fazed out (2x)

damn i'm going soft as hell
lost myself in this crazy affair
my mom didn't treat me right
bout them broads that'll eat you up
cuddle and snuggling
yesterday with all that love
biz markie where you at
taught me lessons that I can't pay back
but no matter what books you read
a cheat is a cheat, deceit is deceit
fly through them streets signing

everyday in the streets
hustling just to eat
feeding my baby girl
without her, aint no world
but you aint treat me right
tellin lies just to fight
watching me sell this weed
just to make these ends meet

i'm getting played out (2x)
straight up fazed out (2x)
Track Name: Camel Crusader
i dreamt of riding a camel
across the oceans and forest
swift and selfless she gallops
towards the end of our time

i'm the camel
crusader
wretched instigator
problem impersonator (2x)
(watch out watch out watch out)

she make me a worthwhile jockey
in the race against treason
there's not much else to argue
she's convinced me of my crimes

i'm the camel
crusader
wretched instigator
problem impersonator (2x)
(watch out watch out watch out)
Track Name: 405
its 5pm
driving in my car
look around
everybody seeing stars
it doesn't make sense
but honey, i didn't make them
if we could see straight
we wouldn't be late cuz

all the palm trees pass us by
405

(2x)
Track Name: IBM
in between moments
a dream within a dream
Track Name: Disintegration
12345678

disintegration
idealization
(2x)


when i walk out of my house
the world doesn't comfort me
but i'm going to be all right
i'm going to be just fine
Track Name: 777
when i met you
you were sitting all alone
you had a big old coat
yeah, it was kind of cold
we ordered another round
i said madam have you searched and found
she said no
(no no no)

look at me i'm sold
take me home
make me whole
take me home

(2x)
Track Name: Charlie Get A Job
i'm just trying to live my life, without all the blame
i'm just trying to get a job, without all the shame
when i go outside to play, people all look away
i'm just trying to get a wife, but they're all the same
it's not like it was before, all i can do is fail
can i have just one more chance, before its flown away
Track Name: Popsicles
i say look at the moonlight (3x)
it's so bright

and i don't seem so scared to die
and i don't feel so scared to lie
and I don't feel so afraid like you
ain't that the truth

i say look at the moonlight (3x)
it's so bright
Track Name: Whitehouse
Figure out the verse....

i'm feeling used today
i fell abused today
(i didn't know that she wanted to play, all she would say was, na na na na na)
Track Name: Last
when i take a look at your face
takes me to all these places
that i've been
i remember when i was ten
it's not the same anymore
i remember when i was ten
things are looking strange
as i grow older
things get rearranged
as i grow older
i can't fit in the same ways
i used to play all the time
going outside was so much fun
but now the clouds are moving in
makes me feel like i need to take some pills
i remember when i was ten
but life goes on
can't think of anything
that can take me back
when i was younger
had a big smile
now i'm older, i feel like dying
now i'm older i feel like i don't want to try
to do anything right
wrong feels right
