New Album Out Now

Lyrics

The Company Of Strangers

At a night time washstand you were staring me down You had me so
embarrassed And this restaurant crowd was oh so loud Your face had been
crying you were ravaged by jealousy You said look what love has done to me
We could slip out the back right now if you want to save me

Because I know to know I know you want me You start to haunt me I feel the
danger Do you like holding on to the company of strangers

You said promise not to kill me and I'll let you in Her apartment is cold
as a mace can She said I just want to get it I don't need to understand I
said show me your true face She said I'd rather wear a blindfold Truth be
told I want a robot A robot heart is all I want

If you were the one who knows me best
Tell me why
Why am I so so so so so so so depressed
I want to live a life of danger
I like holding on to the company of strangers

Chorus:
I like holding on to the company of strangers You are the one who knows me
best


In your eyes what you see
Is what you want me to be
So that's what I will be
What you want me to be
That's what I will be
What you want me to be

Fuh fuh fuck away the emptiness until you get caught In the loving arms of
a robot Till a robot heart is all you've got

If you were the one who knows me best
Tell me why
Why do I feel so so so so so second best I want to live a life of danger I
like holding onto the company of strangers

I like holding on to the company of strangers You are the one who knows me
best I like holding onto the company of strangers

 

Queen of Daydreams

 

I never wanted to know someone

As much as I want you

Never wanted to breakthrough

All of the secrets keeping me and you

From a better life and a better moment

If it showed up could you own it

Could you?

 

I never wanted to stay somewhere

So much as here today

Doing nothing with you means more than I can Say did you see that cloud It's like a UFO, lenticular Or so I hear You connect me to the atmosphere

 

You're like a Queen of Daydreams

Like a Queen of Daydreams

 

You said you've never been in love

I'd like to think you're thinking of me

When you're wishing for a brand new start And all we want's to pin down the heart You're much too young for moments come and gone You said can you know me now from  my songs I don't know but you can sing along

 

You're like a Queen of Daydreams

Like a Queen of Daydreams

 

On your heart, can you feel it

In your heart, make it real

 

Don’t Give In

 

I’m on the side of everyone

Who wants to stay alive

Let’s go for a ride

On my motorbike

I can’t hear a thing

I know what you’re saying

Don’t give in

Say it now like a friend

Don’t give in 

 

And I’ll you one thing that I’m not

I don’t think that I’m right 

Cause I didn’t get caught

Tell me now, where you’ve been

Don’t give in, don’t give in

And the thing that's killing me

Is a vision of our life how’s it supposed to be

Without each other we’re nothing

Don’t give in

Cause when the sun roof top

It comes down

I am right by your side

 

It doesn’t work for you then don’t do it 

Feel yourself again

It doesn’t work for you then don’t do it

Don’t live  your life pretend

it’s nice to meet you

 

let’s go bare knuckle this season

if you lose your heart then you lose your reason

Swash buckle wearing thin 

Don’t give in, don’t give in

What do you want me to do

Spend my brightness burning for you

Without each other we’re nothing

Don’t give in

 

it doesn’t work for you then don’t do it

Feel yourself again

it doesn’t work for you then don’t do it

Don't live your life pretend (?)

it’s nice to meet you

it’s nice to meet you

 

it doesn’t work for you then don’t do it

Feel yourself again

it doesn’t work for you then don’t do it

don’t live your life pretend

it’s nice to meet you

it’s nice to meet you

it’s nice to meet you

yeah, yeah, yeah

 

I’m on the side of everyone

Who wants to stay alive

Don’t give in

Say it now like a friend

Don’t give in

I love you more than anything

Don’t give in

Don’t give in

Don’t give in

 

Isn’t It Pretty

It was funny

Funny cause it’s hopeless

She’s fall down drunk on a Thursday

Pushes her laundry home in a cart like she’s homeless

She says I’m still so shady

Were you’re a princess bag lady 

And I lose my thoughts

It’s not my fault they make drinks here with six fucking shots

 

 

It’s so strange

It doesn’t seem so strange

It’s been seven months 

And we’re still twin flames

And I moved on

Still she’s brimming with charm

That perfect skin touched my arm

The kind that can win you 

The kind that singe you

 

We bumped shoulders in the bar and the sparks still there

She said you could have  me 

If you cared enough I dare you

I know that I still scare you

 you and me can make that future grow

Isn’t it pretty to think so

Isn’t it pretty to think so

 

Said lately I’m doing fine 

I’m on the mend

But every time I hurt again

Cause the truth is that I miss you every day

Sound of your voice

The way you sleep

And your heart and how deep it beats

When you hold me than I think I’m getting played

 

We bumped shoulders in the bar and the sparks still there

She said you could have  me 

If you cared enough I dare you

I know that I still scare you

 you and me can make that future grow

Isn’t it pretty to think so

Isn’t it pretty to think so

 

I’m on the road for a month of shows

That’s when I miss her

That’s when our distance grows

600 miles away

From the night we were before

I remember we were trying

For something more

 

Flight arrivals, SFO

Are the loneliest place I know

And she’s back with that bar keep

And I just want to sleep and watch Netflix

In my big ass house

Creeping on what I can’t fix

And now there’s someone new

Hammered into real

Changes  how I feel

Not mangled, not triangled

No it’s time to let it go

Isn’t it pretty to think so

Isn’t it pretty to think so

You and me can make our future grow

Isn’t it pretty to think so

Isn’t it pretty to think so

 

Big black glasses and baby glow  

Life is ours at the after show

Watch it grow, watch it grow

Isn’t it pretty to think so

 

Sherry Is A Stoner

The good people of Oshkosh

Have it all worked out for you

Just follow along 

Like there’s nothing else you could chose to do

But take a look at this one

And wonder what lies beneath

There’s gotta be more to a smile

Then lips and teeth

She’s getting knocked out of place

Oh it’s hard to put a smile to that face

 

Cause Sherry is a stoner 

From Oshkosh Wisconsin

I never really knew her

Sherry is a stoner

 

I feel like 

I feel like

I feel like she’s out the window

Like the straight and narrow

Cause there's  some place out there

She can feel down to the bone marrow

Through the skin in her hair

Kept up in this town like a cage

Pimped out when she comes of age (?)

Be a good girl

Live a dutiful life

Keep it buttoned down

One day you'll be a wife

So much you didn’t know about her

 

Sherry is a stoner 

From Oshkosh Wisconsin

I never really knew her

Sherry is a stoner

 

Ever really feel like you new someone 

You think it's buttoned down but buttons come undone

Well you should try again

Oh, you should try again

 

She don’t let the dub step stop 

She wouldn’t do it if she can

Busting through the door

Like the koolaide man

 

Singing hey, everybody, whomp whomp whomp

Hey everybody whomp whomp whomp (?)

Sherry is a stoner 

From Oshkosh Wisconsin

I never really knew her

Sherry is a stoner

 

Sherry is a stoner 

From Oshkosh Wisconsin

I never really knew her

Sherry is a stoner

 

Weightless

Summer, your ripped jeans are torn

Suh dude, you were screaming

I'd rather die than waste

Let me taste it

 

I never loved anything that didn't scare me Huck it off everything and come up smiling I want to get weightless I feel so weightless

 

What do I do with this freedom

Is this a rage to live

Or a death wish dreaming

Summer gods got me screaming

 

I never loved anything that didn't scare me Huck it off everything and come up smiling I want to get weightless I feel so weightless

 

Sometimes I feel like I can't make it home Sometimes I feel like I take in all the scenery on my own What's the price what do I miss I want to get to the place where that's all there is Some times I feel like I can't make it home

 

How many times

Has my heart flat lined

I think that I have lost my voice for you I think that I've become paper thin And all see through From the margins to the core I want to feel it just a little more I think that I have lost my voice for you Do you understand me I want to be anialated Perfect obliterated, oh oh you're not going to make it All suh dudes well there just phonies And all the girls are sparkle ponies Do you understand don't let my heart Go flat line

 

 

I never loved anything that didn't scare me Huck it off everything and come up smiling I want to get weightless I feel so weightless

 

Cop Vs. Phone Girl

Shakara showed up to class and she pulled out her mobile phone

It’s the one thing that she owns to keep her known

She’s an orphan now she just moved to a foster home

That phone keeps her connected, she’s gonna keep that shit protected

The teacher said ‘Get out of the class’

‘Come on can I stay’

And to his shame, he said the call’s been made

I hear foot steps sounding eager, of a cop that’s about to beat her

 

Now I am all.. I am all for the good fight

And if the cops roll by, throw a peace sign

Say hey baby have a good night

I am all for the good fight

And if the cops roll by, let the colors go blind

Say hey the kids, hey hey the kids

Are Alright

 

Officer Slam came and threw Shakara backwards against the wall

I mean he flipped her just like a rag doll

And broke her arm

Tossed her across that room, face down on the deck

He puts his hands around a 16 year old girls neck

 

Now I am all.. and I am all for the good fight

And if the cops roll by, throw a peace sign

Say hey baby have a good night

I am all for the good fight

And if the cops roll by, let the colors go blind

Say hey the kids, hey hey the kids

Are Alright

 

All the kids are alright

All the kids are alright

 

It’s a lot to take in, I’ll keep it simple

 

On the classroom floor, there’s a little blood splatter

Why’s it so hard to say Black Lives Matter

Doesn’t it mean that you’re anti-white

Take it from me, I’m super fucking white

And on the tele

Hey that’s Niya Kenny

On the Kelly file

She said Fox News corps is proud of you

You’re a girl that stood back to a brutal attack

Come do a victory lap, come get a clap on the back

Hey I fooled you, that never really happened

I mean come on man, could you imagine?

 

So, I take it in my hands

I talk about this shit in my rock band

And I got black fans, and I got fans with sun tans

And we all have the same demands

 

Now I am all.. and I am all for the good fight

And if the cops roll by, throw a peace sign

Say hey baby have a good night

I am all for the good fight

And if the cops roll by, let the colors go blind

Say hey the kids, hey hey the kids

Are Alright

 

All the kids are alright

All the kids are alright

 

I mean come on, could you imagine

Come on, could you imagine
