Track Name: Lend Me An Ear
got somethin' to tell you betta keep it on the down-low,
bout how the limits of our mind aren't set in stone,
accept the embrace of the sands of time,
save your ass, flip the hourglass,
cause your trapt in a paradigm,

softly gleaming, slowly feeling like someone is at your door,
could you ask for more
answer briefly, ain't no need to beat around the fucking bush,
make sure it's understood,

what's wrong the place you live, what's wrong with the thing you did
what's wrong with the dreams you missed everyone wants to relive
life makes you hold your breath, play your hand but stack the deck
cause the stakes are high and they risin yet
ya the stakes are high and they risin yet
the stakes are high and they risin yet

if you gamble on me, you play a dangerous game,
half love//half pain,
oh it's all the same,
please believe me,
baby don't leave me,
i perceive we gotta thing goin' on,
and if you wait for me we can see what went wrong,
please believe me,
i didn't think she would be a part of me that would stay here so long,
for so long, what went wrong?

if you wanna gamble on me, you play a dangerous game,
half wild//half tame,
oh it's all the same,
please believe me,
i didn't think she would be a part of me that would stay here so long,
for so long (stakes are high and they risin yet)
for so long (stakes are high and they risin yet)
for so long (stakes are high and they risin yet)
Track Name: Nuthin' But An O-Thang
they say, the empire ended with each one of us,
tell me who's to trust?
and i say was it six rounds or maybe five,
will you leave alive?
wouldn't hurt to try.

but, you must conceed faithfully,
your eyes full of greed and full of mean,
this ain't for children's tv anymore,

eternity is not the past, eternity is not the future,
you say that imma fucker, but i, i hardly even knew her,
eternity is not the past, eternity is not the future,
i'm just tryna make it last, but i'm afraid that i'm a loser,
yeah, i'm just tryna make it last, but i'm afraid that imma lose her,

with a sound like breaking glass, my heart cracks open wide,
on the floor next to my synthesizer,
i'm only playin', i'm only playin' to reconstruct and realign,

o-face sits by himself but he can't picture no one else,
he's following all of his dreams or so, or so it seems,
o-face you're lookin' glum, well crack another cold one,
you're absent in all of our dreams or so, or so it seems,

you feelin' lucky, you feelin' luck well do you punk,
you feeln' lucky well, you feelin lucky well do you punk,

o-face sits by himself but he can't picture no one else,
he's following all of his dreams or so, or so it seems,
o-face you're lookin' glum, well crack another cold one,
you're absent in all of our dreams or so, or so it seems
Track Name: Mellow Toner
(instrumental)
Track Name: Trevor & Cory
you say you like hip-hop, have i showed you my boy j-rocc
he's great
don't act like a cock just because he lives w/ his mom's
that's lame

there will come a time when you'll stop thinkin' that it's cool to claim that you're old school
when really you're lazy,
drunk and shitty like lahey,
i'd rather roll a six paper spleez

sunny vale, it's hard to pay the rent
when you've got a tiger and his name's steve french
drive a mustang, stole it from cyrus
probably could fuck lucy, but i'm afraid of hepatitis
and that's true

it's cory and trevor
we're best friends, forever
well it's cory and trevor
bring handles, best remember

you say my jordans look fly,
worn by one hell of a guy
recognize
just like thurnis, i get hoodies,
box-logo goodies for free
at supreme

bam!
green eggs and ham
bam!
peanut-butter and jam
Track Name: Love On Mars?
whatchu tryna do to me? (i don't want to see that side of you)
i've seen it in the movies (when they try to reach the moon)
it's cryptic poetry (what does leonard cohen mean?!)

you say you're from the cosmos,
sagan's got your pantyhose in a bundle;
love is like a dwarf star in the center of yr heart.

and it's a goddamn shame (it's a shame you stay the same)
and why'd you stay the same (why do you refuse to change?)

always talkin' bout thoreau, the road;
always actin' like you know, you don't.
and it is well known, it's known that you're a fuckin' phoney.

deep in space there's love.
deep as water flowing underneath the surface of mars [source].
can you feel the stars?
leave orion's belt-- save a cigar for the ride all the way home.

you say you're from the cosmos,
sagan's got your pantyhose in a bundle;
love is like a dwarf star burnig at the center of our solar system.

nasa doesn't want you to know, there exists, love on Mars.
they don't want to explain how love on Mars still remains.
ooh wahoo, oowah ooh.
