Come Get Some
01Better Than Me
Better Than Me
When your tide isn't turning
Your A.I. isn't learning
When all of your brain cells stop working
And all of your good luck is not returning

Is he better than me?
Better than me, oh yeah
Like you said he would be
Is he better than me? Oh yeah

When we tried to keep it working
You decided it wasn't worth it
Now all of the eyes on your prize belong to jerks and
The latest one you chose has gone and hurt you

Is he better than me?

In trying to prove I'm not your type
You bedded many a fool
You might have left your Mr. Right
But I'm not waiting for you

When you whine "I don't deserve this"
Remember girl who ran when they got nervous

Is he better than me?
02Be A Hammer
Be A Hammer
I ask for once ignore the line
You've gone silent, submerging
While that's a useful alibi
You're being beat underneath their whip

If you don't wanna hold on then I'll scream
"Hey what does it matter?"
How can you be standing on your knees?
Get up be a hammer
Hey come and get some

They've racked their brains for ways to try
Our self-worth, our will to live
But they're trapped inside their own designs
When we get and still we give

If you don't wanna hold on then I'll scream
"Hey what does it matter?"
How can you be standing on your knees?
Get up be a hammer
Hey come and get some

(Dedicated to the indomitable spirit of Louie Zamperini)
03When The Lightning Came
When The Lightning Came
I rest my head on pins and needles
A cushion, couch, or bed
Adjust my needs to what I'm feeling
Absorbing what you said

Did you start to get up cause you didn't care?
Was the picture we took just a casting error?
Did you start to pack up to find a different game?
When you thought there were clouds, then the lightning came.

The first months, man we breathed so easy
It might have been a fad
But now it seems like nothings wrong
And then you get so mad

I guess theres no other way we could be discovering these things
04Before You Drown
Before You Drown
When I caught you by the lake, you said nothing
When I asked you "what's the plan", you said "something"
If I told you that he took no photographs
Would you agree and let it be before you drown?

You got to leave your token on the ground
Cause what's been done is coming back around

He was stupid he was mean, well worth dumping
So slip it on and let it steam 'til it starts pumping
You know an oyster has a shiny artifact
So can you grieve and let it be before you drown?

You got to leave your token on the ground
Cause what's been done is coming back around

Will it hurt to drink what your feeling?
Why let his mistake stop your breathing?
It might hurt for now
But you gotta pull through somehow before you drown

You got to leave your token on the ground
Cause what's been done is coming back around
05Extra Time
Extra Time
Turn around there's a guy who's waiting
All alone on the borderline
If you got a problem I'll try to make it mine
Turn me loose I'll be your part-time P.A.
Who's got the moves for when the working day's done
Move a little closer maybe we can have some fun

Can't you see?
With your jam-packed schedule
I'll give you extra time to unwind

I can do all the laundry, baby
Making sure that your bras aren't dried
Hang 'em on the doorknob, careful not to melt the wires
When dressing up to do a couples date thing
I'll even wear one of your birthday ties
Polka-dot or paisley welcoming your world of style.

Can't you see?
With your jam-packed schedule
I'll give you extra time to unwind

Baby get ready cause your dinner's coming
I did the grocery shopping, pre-heated the oven
Yeah this cooking thing's not easy, but I think I got the gist
Why don't you sit yourself right down and have a whiff of this?

Some call me soft but I don't really mind
I love you so much wanna give you extra time
To unwind
06Weighted Down
Weighted Down
There's too many problems here to fix them when we can
And though the surface shines veneer I just don't understand
How can I walk down the aisle, pass through a theater door
While as our reel proves built to spill and ends up on the floor

Is it going to change?
Cause our love feels weighted down

Yesterday you told me that the world is full of men
Who all are out to get you but you'll never let them in
And somehow I got through where no one's ever been before
So if it's true that I've arrived just open up the door

Is it going to change?
Cause our love feels weighted down

What can I say? What can I do?
Your wall is up and big, my battering ram is bamboo
Is it too late, honey, to try?
I've come around to realize nothing makes us wiser

And how is this a way to live? And what do you achieve?
When every time I challenge you you stand right up and leave
The physical was wonderful, the company is great
But everything that's after that I guess we'll have to wait

Is it going to change?
Cause our love feels weighted down
07In It For The Us
In It For The Us
Do I have a deal for you step into the back
Who knows if you'll bait and switch me right into a trap
Often I am guaranteed to be left with a shrug
She'll move out like an animal that don't need any drugs

I'm guided like a missile
That's launched from far above
I kinda hope you're in this for the us

I know that you've been told and told sex is all I want
Beginning in the high school years guys tried to hook things up
So would it make you laugh at me if I said I'm done
With circuit training, quick first dating, hanging out in clubs?

I'm guided like a missile
That's launched from far above
I kinda hope you're in this for the us

That's my story that's my rap I'll take it as it comes
Bide my time and try my best to see if we're in love

I'm guided like a missile
That's launched from far above
I kinda hope you're in this for the us
08Mr Curry Is A Cop
Mr Curry Is A Cop
Hello students it's nice to meet ya
I'm Teddy Curry I'm your brand new teacher
Come find me after school you'll see I'm super cool
And maybe we can score some pot
But Mr Curry is a cop

Mr curry is a cop (oh yeah)
And he ain't ever gonna stop (no no)
If you plan to make it hot
Look out for Curry he's a cop
Cop

He rides his skateboard from his place in Brooklyn
Down to the schoolyard just to see what's cooking
He's always hanging round asking what's going down
It kind of creeps me out a lot
Yeah Mr Curry is a cop

Mr curry is a cop (oh yeah)
And he ain't ever gonna stop (no no)
If you plan to make it hot (smoke pot)
Look out for Curry he's a cop
Cop
Narc

There's a new proud sheriff in town
He's hiding in the trees he's on a stakeout
He'll put you in the can you'll never break out
Who's pushing 45 teaches chemistry and shop
It's Mr Curry he's a cop

Mr curry is a cop (oh yeah)
And he ain't ever gonna stop (no no)
If you plan to make it hot (smoke pot)
Look out for Curry he's a cop (but don't smoke it with Curry)
Mr curry is a cop (he's a cop)
And he ain't ever gonna stop (not gonna stop)
If you plan to make it hot
Look out for Curry he's a cop
Cop
Mr Curry is a cop
09Post-Graduation March
Post-Graduation March
Oh tonight I can't help but feel that the light
I see in your eyes every time
You talk about things that you like
Is gonna shine 'til somebody hands you a line
And says that it hurts but in time
Almost all of your dreams have to die

So I'm asking please think twice 'fore you lay low
Graded all your life now what you're made of
Constant pondering a life without longing
Will only lead to the lions

Close your eyes remember I'll be by your side
When others will help you define what it means to be free and alive
It is plain the things that might make you insane
Will always have room in your brain so just try not to chase them away

So I'm asking please think twice 'fore you lay low
Graded all your life now what you're made of
Constant pondering a life without longing
Will only lead to the lions

You know there might come a day
When you just wanna throw the towel in and say
I have no more time to waste
And your head flows to a mistake

So I'm asking please think twice 'fore you lay low
Graded all your life now what you're made of
Constant pondering a life without longing
Will only lead to the lions
10Erased
Erased
You float through the window like you had an invitation
Crawl across the ceiling like a ninja closing in
Somewhere between then and now comes inspiration
I don't know how you do it but I like the state im in

And it feels like I'm in your outer space
And it feels like my body's been erased

I tune out the noise and I move in your direction
Slide past the walls that I never meant to build
Too many years gone by without direction
Too many cracks in the floor that can't be filled

And it feels like I'm in your outer space
Yeah it feels like my body's been erased
Can you feel it the line has been replaced
And it feels like I'm in your outer space

And when I close my eyes, yeah
It feels like I'm dreaming
and I'm feeling fine, there is no time
To freak over things that I can leave behind
11I Used To Be A Boy Scout
I Used To Be A Boy Scout
Merit badges merit badges made me rich
In knowledge of the woods and the mighty clove hitch
But missing from the string of the wisdom pearls
Was a skill award telling you how to get girls
Still I go out to the bars every week to try and meet her
And what do you mean what is a troop patrol leader?
Yeah I heard it all before I know you think it was lame
But girl if you are drowning guess who's gonna save you

I used to be a boy scout
And I wonder can you help me out
I'm looking for a girl scout
A thin mint for my hungry mouth

Klondike Klondike riding through the snow
We did and won the crowd even even though our sled broke
And yeah those gold nuggets didn't add up to cash
But there's no amount of money can buy a full sash
Which draped across your chest makes you look a little regal
And everybody knows that you're hanging with an eagle
If you're lost in the woods hiking on your vacay
Give me a compass and a map I'll help you find the way

I used to be a boy scout
And I wonder can you help me out
I'm looking for a girl scout
A thin mint for my hungry mouth

Thrifty. Clean. Courteous. Kind. Obedient. Cheerful. Friendly

I can start your fire without using lighter fluid
I can do a lot of things that you might think are stupid
If we're stuck in the rain on a desert island set
I'll gather up some birch bark it lights when it's wet

I used to be a boy scout
And I wonder can you help me out
I'm looking for a girl scout
A thin mint for my hungry mouth
12Taking Us Home
Taking Us Home
When I saw the churches
Stained glass was gone
And the boxes were empty
I wondered how long

When I saw the blind man
Who can't see the sun
He talked of his army
And some war they won

He prayed for the future
Prayed for the past
He said his heart still bleeds
For the wife he once had

When I told the blind man
We're all here alone
He said a strong wind
Was taking us home
