Track Name: Me & You
I like me I like you I like the possibility of us two I think we could be cool so if you’re feelin what I’m feelin come through a couple inches and a few years back I met this girl who had this wicked thing I lack man nobody knew that we were sneakin around finding funny spots where me and she could get down but just when I thought my mary jane could get no better I stumbled upon this smokey baby in her sweater and when I met her I prayed for better weather so I could see what’s hiding underneath her sweater I like me I like you I like the possibility of us two I think we could be cool so if you’re feelin what I’m feelin come through I said good golly miss molly what kind of shampoo do you use you got me feelin finer than a wicked inmate on the loose and if you loosen up my noose I’ll come through and kick you buku rhymes supersonic syllables on how you got me hypnotized flip the script and then go dip into this bed of mine scatter the petals of every rose that I could go and find I’m tryin to blow your mind I’m tryin to live on the tip of your tongue and sip on every breath out of your lungs and if I had me the money well I’d go buy you an island ‘cause these eyes have been spyin a treasure better than diamonds there ain’t no lyin I tell nothin but truth inside the booth and if you give me just one minute well I bet I’ll give you proof and she got kisses sweeter than the strawberry seeds that she be plantin on my neck hopin to grow in a week and every autumn they blossom into an awesome homage to the greatest of romances tell the peeps to appluad I like me I like you I like the possibility of us two I think we could be cool so if you’re feelin what I’m feelin come through use my body take my sould have my brain if you want control seems I’m crazy lost a screw yup I’m mad about you lock me up in a padded cell kiss my neck like you do so well I’ll go out of my mind I’ll go mad without you I like me I like you I like the possibility of us two I think we could be cool so if you’re feelin what I’m feelin come through
Track Name: Center of the Earth
Everyone’s askin about where I been but I know if I tell ‘em they’ll question again so I deflect and dip out and beat around the bush and barely escape the impending ambush I reclaim my innocence ignorance is bliss so I must insist you desist your persistence strike up a topic of which I’m a bit less invested take it from the top super awesome real cool baby super awesome real cool baby the earth split in two right between me and you and the natural gases obstructed my view I shouted and shouted and shouted your name but with each exhalation results were the same I grew so disoriented and discombobulated I fainted straight into the earth for forty-five minutes I thought about you as I fell to the center I fell to my doom super awesome real cool baby super awesome real cool baby well isn’t this just fantastic talkin to a honey day’s sunny now I’m gettin my ass kicked I move past it but I’m soarin towards the center this certain uncertainty certainly gets no better but if we’re gonna die then why don’t we go on a date skip the wine and dine and fly right over to my place forego the foreplay oi was that in poor taste I’m really sorry but I’m tryna speed up your chase we only got minutes til I freakin reach my finish and I’d be lyin if I said I wasn’t tryna get it but I understand and respect you and your situation but as you can kinda see it’s hard for me to be patient as I careen into the abyss of this scene I’m gonna miss all the tenderness how you’re talkin to me wish I could walk out this dream but yet I fall and I scream and now I talked your ear off and missed my shot so peace super awesome real cool baby super awesome real cool baby baby baby won’t you love me like you used to baby baby baby won’t you love me like you used to baby baby baby won’t you love me like you used to love me like you used to love me like you used to
