Track Name: Big Chief
From the first time I came here
You made me feel kind of lame here
I said, "open up to chapter seven"
You put the bait in the water to teach this fool a lesson

I'm not giving it up
But I see by now that my love's not enough
And that language...
And that attitude...
That's not the way I roll

Big Chief
Come be the man
Come take command
Come show your hand
Come rule this land

And you've got to be kidding
And you look way too city
You think you've got what it takes
To sit out on the ice with us rocking Sepultura and Fiddy?

I know that it's about blood
And I can tell by the way you walk that you ain't got enough
And that language...
And that attitude...
That's not the way I role

Big Chief
Come be the man
Come take command
Come show your hand
Come rule this land


I want to know what you think when you're silent
I want to hear that again
I want to know what you think when you're laughing at me
I want to see that again
Take me to your chief

You know this beat is so smooth
It goes down like tofu
And if I want it raw
Then I'll take it down to Nobu
Sitting by the window
So everybody sees me
Sipping on the sake
And snacking on sashimi
I like the way that you move
Maybe you could show me
And if we learn the step
Then we could rock it as a duo
Up in the balcony of the club
Dancing like we're making love
Baby we should make a video and put it up on YouTube
I know you want to rock the moves I've got
I know you want to rock the moves this hot
I know you want to rock with me
All night long

Listen up now son
Arms raised, teeth bared...
There can only be one Big Chief
Track Name: Like a Hunger
Was it when she started staying out all night?
Just when I finally got a steady nine to five?
Was it when I started leaving on a light
I don't know
That is the light she should be standing in

It's like a hunger
Cuts like a knife

Moths are dancing silent in the trembling light
I wonder how they’d look if they would catch on fire
My heart is burning, like a filament
My heart is empty there’s no filling it

Baby come home
Track Name: Hotter than a Poptart
You had me feeling sheepish
Thinking that your skirt was too short
You were watching me averting my eyes
You’ve got me contemplating
Scratchy tweed and velvet lies

You said, "Let's keep it light"
Just some heavy petting and then, "Baby good night"
I would have settled for a kiss, simple and shy

But you had something else in mind

You were hotter than a pop tart baby
You were hotter than a pop tart baby

You and your Christian morals
Got me thinking I could get religion, maybe drink that sweet wine
But the way you treat me
Makes me feel like I'm standing in line

When I was making breakfast
The butter popped and burned me through my open shirt
You fastened me up,
And I thought that made me your lover

You were hotter than a pop tart baby
You were hotter than a pop tart baby

If you’re feeling alright, you’re probably just losing your mind
If you’re feeling uptight, you’ve got a grip on life
Track Name: Cherry Delicious
I knew a girl
Named Cherry Delicious
With a mind that was clean
And a tongue that was vicious
She was a very fine
I don't know why she would waste her time

She pulled my stem
And removed the stone
Drank from my cup like it was her own
Pacing her self like a race car driver
Thirsty for something to take her higher

But if you call her after 10 pm
Well she's usually halfway in the bag by then
Just try to get her to say your name
More than one syllable's not in her game

Cherry Cherry
Cherry Delicious
Cherry Cherry
With that mind so vicious
Now's the time to pounce
Better get cherry before cherry bounce

Cherry Cherry
Holding steady
Cherry Cherry
You know that sometimes you’ve got to wait for a sure shot

Taking a a a a a adderall
Slinging rhymes like spitballs up in study hall
She was a professor of fluid linguistics
I was always hung up on the sexual logistics

That was in the day before the Patron
And the Cuervo Gold and the Wild Irish Rose
She goes soft in the evening and sour in the morning
She's sweet when it rains but she melts when it's pouring

I want her in my life
But if she's just sloppy drunk
Then it won't be no fun

Cherry Cherry
Holding steady
Cherry Cherry
You know that sometimes you’ve got to wait for a sure shot
Track Name: Cut that Hair
You better put a tie on
You better cut that hair
You better clean yourself up
If you're going anywhere
Just try to be serious
And see the world as dangerous
Try to grow up

You better sharpen up now
You better lock it tight
You better make sure that your words and walk are civilized
Just try not to make a fuss
People might get curious and bottle you up

I’m pushing you softly
I didn’t mean to be so bossy

It isn’t hard if you give it a go

Drag a rake across the lawn
Watch your shadow getting long
The summer’s rotting at the curb
And it won’t be long before the first frost

Wash that ink off of your arm
Forget your luck and all her charms
Try to be serious
It’s not written in stone

I'm pushing you softly
I didn't mean to be so bossy
We're all pulling on the same rope
And this is not the end
Track Name: Fool Runnin'
Walking to the record store
Hoping that you see me there
Signing in semaphore
Waving around like I just don't care

Maybe you could help me find
Something I've been looking for
A song that we could sing together
Hand in hand right out this door

I'm just a
fool runnin'
fool runnin’ yeah
fool runnin’
That's just the way I step

Now I'm at the liquor store
Hoping you don't see me here
But if you're feeling thirsty, baby
I could get enough for us to share

I'm just a
fool runnin'
fool runnin’ yeah
fool runnin’
That's just the way I step

Don't talk about the way that you feel
If you've got love, let it shine
And If you're lonely, don't commiserate
It will only make you miserable in time
And If you're happy
Don't you talk out of turn
You’ve got love
You've got it coming out your...

I’ve got love
And I thank you baby
I’ve got love

Our love is like static
Whistling between the Christian radio stations on a long drive way out West
It’s the sweet breath of silence that trickles out the speakers and cools down our flushed faces and sweaty necks
It's the only thing we've got so let's hold on
Until the moment when our laughter hits the air and shatters in a million...

fool runnin'
fool runnin’ yeah
fool runnin’

Don't talk about the way that you feel
If you've got love, let it shine
And If you're lonely, don't commiserate
It will only make you miserable in time
And If you're happy
Don't you talk out of turn
You’ve got love
You've got it coming out your

I’ve got love
I’ve got love
I’ve got love
Track Name: Dance Alone
Martin left Karen just to dance alone
In a disco in the shadow of the church in Cologne
Where she'd have walked the aisle if she'd had her choice
But at the first sign of romance she always raised her voice

It was a sad story
to live down

Now Martin's stepping out to step in the name of love
With glitter on his collar he's as high as a dove
And Karen's home alone with Christiane Amanpour
She says, "Honey let the bomb drop, I don't wanna live no more."

But still she waits for him,
Sure he'll save the next dance for her
And hear how her heart beats for him

But it beats too slow

"I think college was a waste of time
We fucked around and we destroyed our minds
Planting flowers in bubbles of sunshine
Now we've got to win in overtime"

But if you listen for him he'll be scratching at your door
Before the dawn comes creeping

And so she waits for him
Sure he'll save the next dance for her
And she lies silent
She can hear his heart beat for her
From the floor

"I just want to be twenty again and dancing alone in a disco in Hamburg
I want to light skinny little cigarettes for improbable girls in impossible outfits
As my self-loathing turns to loving it could really free me up to do a lot of great things with my life
When I move my feet, that's when I feel complete, don't need no company in the circle in the round"

"I want to push every button
I want to learn every lesson"

"And when I'm face down on your vinyl couch
While my tongue air dries up in my mouth
I will hear your music calling me
But I dance alone"
Track Name: Confession
You say you don't want to hurt me
I seem kind of shy
And you've done so much wrong to so many like me

If you don't want to touch me
That's ok
We can connect in another way
I'm trying to find a way to make this clear to you
This is spiritual

You came to my party
And you danced with me
You put some very suggestive songs on a mix cd
And when I saw you next
You were dancing with another man
Your hands all up in his hair
And your hips like hams in his hands

And I said...
You don't have to hide
You don't have to lie
You can just tell me about it
I will not judge
I will not cry

I will take your confession
If I can't be the one you wrong
Then I will bear your burden
I just want to be close to you

I'm not talking about buying you a drink
Or driving you home
I don't have to be the background on your desktop
Or the speed dial on your phone

But when you love someone the way I love you
You take what you can get

I'll admit I entertained the thought that we could get along
The way that people do when they decide they're not lonely anymore
Sharing laughter sharing music
Just the two of us alone

(I guess I got a little bit carried away)

So when your friends won't listen
And your mother can't know
About the things you've done to the ones you love and the ones you don't
Call me up and tell me about it
And I will take your confession

I will take your confession
If I can't be the one you wrong
Then I will bear your burden
I just want to be close to you
Track Name: Let's Move in Together
Walking to the corner store
To pick up margarine, eggs, and some orange juice
The kind I get for you

I thought, now that's the way I want to live
I want to treat you right every Sunday before noon

And these church folks out here looking right
While I'm a sloppy mess with my shoes untied

Let's move in together
Let's move in together right away

Drink the honey that drips from the spoon
Like the light in the morning that fills up the room
And pools in our eyes
So we know that it's time

Let's get down and make a mess
Let's live at the same address
Take a trip home

Every day baby
We get a little bit closer to each other
But still you call me up on the telephone
When a touch would be the way to let me know
That I'm not alone.

And these church folks they've got one thing right
They go to the same house every night

(Coda)

I'm in love for the first time
You're not the girl of my dreams
You're the one I want to wake up next to every day
I'm for real
Yeah
Track Name: Dong Pills
If you want your woman to love you
You’ve got to thrill her
If you want your girl to feel secure
You’ve got to give a lifetime of loving
If you don’t have the strength to carry through
Then you better let her help you

Lovers ain’t afraid of no dong pills
Lovers ain’t afraid of no dong da dong pills
Lovers ain’t afraid of no dong pills
Players know it helps them with their Donkey Kong skills

If your natural love is not enough
You better take that pill
To make her week in the knees
I think you better go and man on up
You better take that pill, take that pill, take that pill

(Ceremony)

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today
To witness the union of man and woman
In the bloom of youth
Now let us hear the truth

Do you take this woman
To be your lover
Your one and only
There is no other?

Do you promise to cherish her
To please her sexually and intellectually

Will you love her when she’s young and slinky?
Will you love her when she’s fresh and kinky?
Will you love her when she needs you deeply?
Will you love her when you can’t stop thinking….

Whatcha gonna do when you’re tired and cranky?
How are you going to lover her when you can’t stand up?

I’m talking about pharmaceuticals
Rock the booty pills
Daddy’s little helper for reliable thrills
Pharmaceuticals
Rock the booty pills
It’s a thing that lovers do when it’s serious

Lovers ain’t afraid of no dong pills
Lovers ain’t afraid of no dong da dong pills
Lovers ain’t afraid of no dong pills
Players know it helps them with their Donkey Kong skills
