carlottaloth The simplicity of the lyrics, old school guitars and nostalgic melodies of another era with the sharp sound that takes me to a world of opium, this album stole my heart. Favorite track: Your Voice.

Track Name: Maybe I'm Wasting My Time
Vie for a piece of the pie
Maybe I'm wasting my time

Trying to make it sound cool
Playing a drum out of tune
Why is the music so fun?
Maybe because I'm so young

Maybe I'm wasting my time
Maybe I'm wasting my time
Maybe I'm wasting my time
Maybe I'm wasting my time
Maybe I'm wasting my time
Track Name: Rattle and Hiss
Slap on the wrist when I'd rather a kiss
Well if you talk then you should talk it like this
Give me some of your bliss
Because your love is at the top of my list

So it went like this
I took a shot and look at that yeah I missed
All I want is a kiss
But all i get is just a rattle and hiss

Do you know how much time I've wasted?
Thinking about the time I've wasted?
But all this time I'm wasting
I will waste it for you

If I only had a day to live I would visit you
And even though it's so dangerous
I fell in love with that rattle and hiss
Track Name: Why I Even Try
Talk about a plan to kill my day
I know you think about one everyday
Used to be so warm but now you're ice
Our friendship has to be the sacrifice

I don't know why, why I even try
I don't know why, why I even try
I don't know why, why I even try
I don't know why, why I even try

Tried to take the time to make things right
That's hard to do when all you wanna do is fight
So I will pack up my guitar
With or without you yeah I know I'm going far

I don't know why, why I even try
I don't know why, why I even try
I don't know why, why I even try
I don't know why, why I even try
Track Name: Super Deluxe
Business is slow
Broken back and yeah you have the scars to show it
Business will grow
Make a move and spend some dough before you blow it

Super deluxe, spend a few bucks
Spend a few bucks for the super deluxe

Money will flow
You're feeling strong but you're not strong enough to show it
Whistles and bows
We'll give you light and make it bright enough to glow it

Super deluxe, spend a few bucks
Spend a few bucks for the super deluxe
Track Name: LSD
Done with pills, he needs to get his fill
He needs to find relief
A friend in town asked him if he's down
They took some LSD

It's after 3, his mind is now set free
He starts to feel at ease
But something's wrong, it's lasting way too long
And then he starts to freak

Done with pills, he gave up on those pills
He tried to find relief
It made him crack, he's never coming back
They took some LSD
Track Name: All The Good Things
I don't know why I'm sad
All the good things are bad

All the love I can give
Man you already have

All the things I won't say
I will take to the grave

I don't know why I'm sad
All the good things are bad
Track Name: Click, Bang
We were going on a first date
I said I'd pick her up about 8
She got excited when the phone rang
I left her hanging with a click, bang

Well I got so scared and I didn't know what to do
I'd rather blow my brains out than go on a date with you

We were going on a first date
I said I'd pick her up about 8
She got excited when the phone rang
I left her hanging with a click, bang
I left her hanging with a click, bang
I left her hanging with a click, bang
I left her hanging with a click, bang
Track Name: Your Voice
I used to hate your voice
But I wonder how
You're calling someone else's name right now
Feelings are the worst, talking ain't my best
But now I'm getting something off my chest
Track Name: Breathing All Your Air
If you want to see me smile
Take your picture, burn it twice
Tried to make me run a mile
On the thinnest sheet of ice
If you want to watch me die
Steal my oxygen supply
That's okay and I don't care
Cuz I was breathing all your air
Track Name: Out Of Tune
The days go by way too soon
I'm out of tune
Track Name: Fool Around
When you fool around
You'll always get found
When you fool around
You'll always get found

Stuck on my shoe
The only piece of gum I'd ever chew
The payment isn't late, it's overdue
The blood isn't a puddle, it's a pool
Everyone's a fool

When you fool around
You'll always get found
When you fool around
You'll always get found
