Track Name: Crooked Smile
Crooked Smile
I’m always on time
Wrapped around your finger but I feel its just a vice
The rules that you abide are broken like your crooked smile that your lies hide behind

CHORUS:
But I feel that I am capable
But I lost my mind on some April
You used to feel so stable when my dreams were cut on a dirty table

Do I make you feel small?
Or do I make you feel like something that you are not at all
Tell me everything but don’t make it seem as dirty as the needle that sticks in your veins

CHORUS:
But I feel that I am capable
But I lost my mind on some April
You used to feel so stable when my dreams were cut on a dirty table

Bridge: (X2)
Do I make you feel small?
Or do I make you feel like something that you are not at all?

CHORUS:
But I feel that I am capable
But I lost my mind on some April
You used to feel so stable when my dreams were cut on a dirty table
Track Name: Fantasy in the Sand
Fantasy In The Sand
She left me a note she said that she’s got to go back to Brooklyn
Painted portraits in my head of her and I hand in hand next to the sea and the sand
But I know that when the tide comes I’ll just have to paint her again

CHORUS:
I’ve been washing her away, watching her walk away
Washing her away, I’ve been watching My Fantasy in the sand
I’ve been washing her away, watching her walk away
Washing her away, I’ve been watching My Fantasy in the sand

The pills, without the pills I know she’s there
Cause I constructed such a beautiful woman with sun rays for hair
Every night before I fall asleep I can feel the rhythm of her heart it’s in the same beat as me

CHORUS:
I’ve been washing her away, watching her walk away
Washing her away, I’ve been watching My Fantasy in the sand
I’ve been washing her away, watching her walk away
Washing her away, I’ve been watching My Fantasy in the sand

She left me (x10)
My Fantasy In The Sand
She left me (x10)
My Fantasy In The Sand
She left me (x10)
My Fantasy In The Sand
Track Name: Around You
Around You
Around You is the feeling that I get when I feel like my shoulders are about to lift
I can honestly say that you are that kind of evil and I am withdrawing from you, Withdrawing from you

CHORUS
Bring me down, you won’t hold me down
Crash and Burn, you won’t crash me down

Around you is the feeling that I get when I feel like my stomach is about to be sick
I overdosing from your love baby just your touch
Youre just so hard not to resist youre like a sunset that channels my bliss
Channel me in on what I’ve become

CHORUS (X3)
Bring me down, you won’t hold me down
Crash and Burn, you won’t crash me down

She lit up my fire but she can’t sustain the flame
You can throw two rocks together but the spark just stays the same
Track Name: Summer Pavement (If You Must Know the Truth)
VERSE ONE
Summer pavement
i felt the heat
with you in my peripheals
in my passenger seat
i dont like to think
what you dont care to know
i made a mistake
now the curtains closed

CHORUS
but i told you lies
all lies
and if you must know the truth
i was confused
vulnerable
but thats no excuse
i ran towards my past to make sure you were the one
that iiiiiiiiiiiii wanted to wake up next to
if you must know the truth

VERSE TWO
you wanted to take it slow
but i was too stubborn
i could stand the thought
of your arms around another
that was crazy talk
your better than that
in the back of my mind
i thought well if i could then how could she not

CHORUS
but i told you lies
all lies
and if you must know the truth
i was confused
vulnerable
but thats no excuse
i ran towards my past to make sure you were the one
that iiiiiiiiiiiii wanted to wake up next to

OUTRO
if you must know the truth
if you must know the truth
if you must know the truth
Track Name: Post Script (A Tribute)
Something's aching that I need to get out
Have I buried it so deep that it's hard to get out?
Could it be the death of my mother?
But I hate to listen to doctors

CHORUS
But you do this to yourself
And please note if I have doubt
You always told me to watch my mouth
Well look how far, look how far it's gotten me now

Your friends, they never come around
And all my friends, all my friends are strung out
I never seemed to get the concept of something like this

CHORUS
But you do this to yourself
And please note if I have doubt
You always told me to watch my mouth
But look how far, look how far it's gotten me now

Post Script, this is it. I'm letting you go.
I said Post Script, this is it. I'm letting you go.
Track Name: Augusta (The Stripper Song)
Have you seen her name on the side of broadway?
Shes got it grafitted in purple spray paint, she wakes
with fame in her eyes, the big city lights with her name in the marquee
daddy's little girl wants to be a dancing queen

CHORUS
But I'll be waiting for you by the square
I got nothing but time, there's no pun in my rhyme
I just thought that I'd be kicking it until you get there
I've got a pocket full of posy, If you ever want to know me
If you ever wanna come swing my way
But ashes to ashes we burn the same

Did she wait with fear in her mind?
her hips only move to the groove of the dollar sign
she lies next to how reality feels
her pride is no longer than those six inch heels
Daddy's little girl's just trying to pay the bills

CHORUS
But I'll be waiting for you by the square
I got nothing but time, there's no pun in my rhyme
I just thought that I'd be kicking it until you get there
I've got a pocket full of posy, If you ever want to know me
If you ever wanna come swing my way
But ashes to ashes we burn the same

CHORUS
But I'll be waiting for you by the square
I got nothing but time, there's no pun in my rhyme
I just thought that I'd be kicking it until you get there
Oh I said I've got a pocket full of posy, If you ever want to know me
If you ever wanna come swing my way
But ashes to ashes we burn the same

Track Name: Fly Upon My Zeppelin (LIVE)
Fly upon my zeppelin it’s made of led are you impressed
I’m just trying to get into your head

CHORUS
But when you took your magic carpet ride did you see Lucy in the sky with diamonds?
Or were you really that high?
Break through the atmosphere of what you call today
But If I see diamonds in your eyes it’s all that I could never throw away

Interlude
Come down, come down, I’m waiting for you on the ground
Come down, come down, I’m waiting for you on the ground
Come down, come down, I’m waiting for you on the ground
Come down, come down, I’m waiting for you on the ground

CHORUS
But when you took your magic carpet ride did you see Lucy in the sky with diamonds?
Or were you really that high?
Break through the atmosphere of what you call today
But If I see diamonds in your eyes it’s all that I could never throw away
