Track Name: Girl, Don't Come Around
Girl, Don’t Come Around
Girl, I thought I told you not to come around here with that smile
But you disobeyed me and you made me think about you for a while
And now you come around, walk into my life, looking so fresh and so clean
But you haven’t lost your touch so lets give it a go if you know what I mean

Girl, I forgot you were the finest, I
I forgot how I used to boast, I
I forgot about your flyness
About the coolest fucking mama on the whole east coast

So now your back, but I am gone
But what’s a man to do when it’s been so long
I realize your hurting, but your flirting, and you know that it’s wrong
I have this feeling deep in my soul like I can barely move, I’m under your control
But I have searched the whole world through, somehow the path I choose leads right on back to you

Chorus

So I will bring it back into the verse
Because I’m all wrapped up in your curse
I guess that things could be worse
I need some loving, girl, so please quench my thirst
Track Name: Slow Reprise
Slow [Reprise]
Back in the day on my way and still growing
Advancing on a damsel in my prime
I wasn’t sure as to where this was going
So I waited as she played at passing time

And now I’m running for you, running for you, running for you

I understood, still I stood, and I wondered
I waited for my mind to make its mind
I took a step I regret, I'd of won her
If only I’d of played at passing time

Baby, you should know, before I go give you some more
And baby, you know, before I go, I take it slow
Track Name: Split
Whoaaaa and we’re at it again

One time loaded with locks atop my head
Ruthlessly rooted, off fables they fed
And locks are like rocks when your head can’t be found
Top heavy I tilted till I tilted to the ground

Whoaaaa and we’re at it again

Deuce twice through with a wrinkle in my wit
I thought I’d caught it, my sinister split
But he had mistakenly taken my brain
Said mister sinister, I insist I’m not insane

Now I can tell you bout this crazy world I used to know
Where all these fickle thoughts inside my head found ways to grow
And as they grew their friends did too, inviting company
So I, the host, proposed a toast and told them all to leave, I feel no pain

We accumulate as much as we can
And we acknowledge but we never understand
Three rock in the palm of our hand
We rock in a rock and roll band
Track Name: Climb
Lately I've been losing, leaving luck to lead the way
Thought maybe I could find another way to play the game
Was looking for somebody to come save me from the day
And there she was just listening to the music that I play

I saw her sitting, staring, grooving slowly with a sway
I prayed and prayed with each and every step she took my way
Was looking for somebody to come save me from the day
I found myself just singing every single word she’d say

I will climb, and when I pass the sky, I will shine on for those who follow close behind

Following the motions floating freely through this dream
This never-ending notion of this ever-bending stream
Was looking for somebody to come save me from the day
It didn’t matter how 'cause she could save me any way

She glows just like an angel and she sings just like a bird
She plays my melody while she insists I take the third
She was looking for somebody, and she found me on her way
She brought me to a perfect place where I was free to stay

I will climb, and when I pass the sky, I will shine on for those to follow close behind

Open the doors, look up and down, this is your castle, here is your crown
And they say, don’t matter where you’re from as long as you’re here
Paradise was waiting for you, they whisper in your ear

I will climb, and when I pass the sky, I will shine on for those to follow close behind
Track Name: Smokeshop
Right lane riding’ rolling home from smoke shop
Let down at smoke shop but won’t stop
I’ll find my angel at the next stop
Let down at shop I’ll drop

On pace I glide along with such grace
Like easy finger when it touch bass
Good news awaited me at my place
Left lane is best lane for this race

I dive into a friendly conversation upon a sea of glass
I’m thinking bout a civil confrontation, that left a heavy load upon my soul, but now I’m rolling to the smoke shop

Staring down a broken bottom bowl hole
The bandit with a diamond stud stole
I played pursuit while he played run role
But damn that bandit, man, he’s bold

With haste I slip into my soul space
Likely I’ll linger till I touch base
Good news persuaded me: no big waste
[need line]

I dive into a friendly conversation upon a sea of glass
I’m thinking bout a civil confrontation, that left a heavy load upon my soul, but now I’m rolling to the smoke shop

I’m looking around
I’ll search until I have found
I’m looking around
I am a king with no crown

Plus I lack a queen, and I’m a castle with no ground
