Track Name: Beloved
BELOVED

I never thought I couldn’t do it
I thought that I was in control
But now it’s oh-so obvious
That I don’t know anything at all

I know I shouldn’t have gone and
Told you that I would be there
But I wouldn’t cry so much if I didn’t care.

And I’m sorry
For confusing you
Or being confused
Or something like that.
Now I’m beloved
And I don’t know what to do with myself.

You wouldn’t think that I was stupid
And I’m not, except for cases like this
And there’s nothing I can tell you
And I can’t say it in a kiss

I know I shouldn’t have gone
And told you that I would be there
And I know you’re angry and you don’t care.

But I’m sorry….

So I screwed up, and for that I’ll pay the price
And all those people now ain’t gonna be so nice.
But don’t think I haven’t changed, I’m not the same
And I’m never ever gonna do that again
And yes, I am to blame.

But I’m sorry…
Track Name: Best Thing
I’m boring and I’m shallow, ain’t got nothing to say

Don’t care about your money, or your kick-ass P.A.

I’m hungry as fuck for the taste of something stronger

Don’t give a shit if it takes a little longer.

I took ten whole years to get going

Will I take ten more? There’s no knowing

All I got’s my wicked sense of the abstract

Fuck with me, I’m gonna Fuck right back.


Yeah, I wanna kick out the jams

I wanna kick your ass at everything

Yeah, I wanna win this one so bad

And be the best thing you ever had.


I’m stupid and I’m ugly, ain’t nothin’ bout me

I don’t even care that you’re happy without me

I’m tired as fuck of all the condescention

Don’t give a shit about your “good intentions”.

You took too many years for my liking

Who knows why? You’re not particularly striking

All I got’s my ability to survive this

Fuck with me, I’m not gonna abide it.


Yeah, I wanna kick out the jams

I wanna kick your ass at everything

Yeah, I wanna win this one so bad

And be the best thing you never had.


I’m not averse to making a scene these days

I’m not entirely cut off from my wicked ways

Not trying to make a point to you so much as me

I wasted too much time on you despite my dreams.


Yeah, I wanna kick out the jams

I wanna kick your ass at everything

Yeah, I wanna win this one so bad

And be the best thing you’ll never have

I’ll be the best thing you’ll never have

I already am.
