Track Name: (She's) Flexible
Let's fight, we'll fight tonight, at some point you will find I don't mind if you live or die cuz in my mind you're an unborn baby girl, you can't cry cuz you got no eyes, but I'm born, my blood is warm, and tonight… I'm hard, I'm so hard, but she's flexible. When you die, you get so high and no one cares if you even tried, so let's fight most every night and you'll find if you're so inclined… I'm hard, I'm so hard, but she's flexible.
Track Name: I Likey
I like new cars, I like old cars, I like cars. I like new girls, I like old girls, I like girls. So just gaze into these eyes, and you get anything that your heart desires, cuz I likey. I like dry heat, I like wet heat, I like heat. I like tall guys, I like short guys, in disguise, I like guys. I like new cars, I like old cars, I like cars. I like true love, I like you love, I like love.
Track Name: The Great Hereafter
Nobody can say that you were not made for the ocean, sizin' up the waves with them big blue shapes in your eyes. And you can't refuse a ride from a man in disguise when he's wanting. Toss it to the side like a rattle snake teases a child, a child who knows this: This is the great hereafter, we take whatever we want, this is the great hereafter years of standing on ceremonies that could not last for long. This is the best way out. Talkin' to your friend on the phone transcends the miles. All the cigarettes in the world could never take the place of your smile. Now how am I supposed to face the morning, a fool to think the rest of you would last this long. Ignore the rings and the vibrations, I can't listen to reasons that don't make sense in this fog.
Track Name: Feel Some Bodies
I, I know that I have weaknesses and all that I want's just to feel some body oh yeah, sometimes I wander through these palaces like a lazy bird and all that I want's just to feel somebody awww yeah. Late night, I fall among the scavengers and the city has left us to pick over its carcass yeah, I trade you love for life mine seems incapable of promising those things that are fast to burn when there's things you can't unlearn, but as long as I’m walkin, I'm knowin I'm goin to somewhere, and all that I want's just to feel somebody oh yeah. I'll tell you first, I'll outlast a rainstorm of Italian birds cut by Pygmalion, it just makes it worse when you picture it too vividly but that's how it works and on top of the trophy… a little golden me.
Track Name: Still the Best
Somebody stole my rock and roll and nobody trying to stop them, yeah you know… We're still the best. They stand in a row and I'll let you know when I find a way around them. Yeah you know… We're still the best. I sure do miss those days a lot when we were smokin', we were just shootin' the breeze, under the trees. But times have turned to war, you pick something worth fighting for: the birds or the bees or some other basic need, it's such a neat, vicious circle. We're still the best.
