Track Name: No Sweat
Paradise is warm weather
But not too humid cause I don’t wanna stick to stuff
Lived in paradise for all my life
Didn’t know it though because the city sucked

I do what my body, body tells me to
I do what my body, body tells me to

It’s no sweat just breathe
It’s no sweat just breathe
Get with it and
It’s no sweat just breathe
Get with it and
It’s no sweat, it’s no sweat falling down

Eating ice cream in cold weather
Sounds good to me unless my face is numb
I’d rather go swim in the ocean
Somewhere tropical with a lazy sun

I do what my body, body tells me to
I do what my body, body tells me to

It’s no sweat just breathe
It’s no sweat just breathe
Get with it and
It’s no sweat just breathe
Get with it and
It’s no sweat, it’s no sweat falling down
Track Name: Spirit Sweat
What is that in your ear
No more politics
Suspend your fears
We’ve got a ritual
We make it dirty, dirty, dirty, dirty, nasty beautiful

Shake just a little bit closer
Sweat just a little bit closer
Shake just a little bit closer
Sweat just a little bit closer

Burn off those bad feelings
And love the ones like dancing on the ceiling
Stick to your rituals
Keep it nasty, nasty, nasty, dirty beautiful

Shake just a little bit closer
Sweat just a little bit closer
Shake just a little bit closer
Sweat just a little bit closer

We’re sweating spirits
Sweating spirits
That’s the spirit
You’ve got the spirit
Yeah yeah, y-yeah yeah

Hey!
I feel a black out coming on
Is there a black out coming on
I feel a black out coming
Is there a black out coming

Talk to me tell me a secret
Whisper in my ear
Track Name: Sleep Tight
Where were you drinking last night
All night all night a-yeah
I woke up and sat upright
But you’re not, you’re not a-there
Maybe you lost the light
In your eyes, in your eyes a-yeah
And maybe that was alright
Well alright

A delayed reaction
Coming to
A delayed reaction
Time doesn’t go backward
So sleep tight

Your mind is like shrinking cotton
All white and tightened
Your guts are a trembling mountain
Fighting eruption
Drain your head into a fountain
And won’t remember anything
Woke up into the cold dead night
Well goodnight

A delayed reaction
Coming to
A delayed reaction
Time doesn’t go backward
So sleep tight

I got treated
Just like I wasn’t there
I turned the rhythm up
To freshen the air
Is it who you know
That helps you let it go
I’m getting down with my face wiped clean in my brand new jeans
And I wanna get gone
I’m gone and I…
I’m gone
Track Name: Nojo
Oh oh hard feelings
Splitting up the ones you depend on
Oh oh it’s easy
To bite the face off a loved one
Oh oh don’t tease me
I’m gonna hand it back to you
Oh oh releasing
Emotions hot and not thought through

My mojo can’t go
Walking through your door
Cause when the day starts over
It’s feeling so sore
Gimme gimme more

Ooh baby baby
Baby baby
Ooh baby baby
Baby baby
Track Name: HENRY
Henry, whatcha doing today
Henry, have you got time for me
Henry, you gotta date with me
Henry, I’ll pick you up at 8

You make me feel so good
And you smell so good too
And then you get in my head
Just like I knew you’d do
Come on

Henry, you’re always making me late
Henry, why do you make me wait
Henry, it’s been a rough long day
Henry, help me forget today

You make me feel so good
And you smell so good too
And then you fuck with my head
Just like I knew you’d do
Come on

Come on Henry get the party started
Come on Henry let’s act retarded
Come on Henry finish what you started
And say yeah yeah woo hoop
Track Name: Come Back To Me
When I first saw you
Before I ever met you
Your smile made my heart jump
And your eyes gave me goosebumps
I tried not to notice
But you just seemed so perfect

And so I pour all of my love into you
It may not have seemed like a lot
But I gave it to you
I found it hard to articulate my feelings for you

But when you
Go away for a hundred days
10,000 miles away
You come back to me

No, romance isn’t like me
It’s not in my creativity
I never wanted to hurt you oh oh
But I know sometimes I do
Hope the damage is fixable
It’s always so unintentional

So I pour all of my love into you
It may not have seemed like a lot
But I gave it to you
I found it hard to articulate my feelings for you

But when you
Go away for a hundred days
10,000 miles away
You come back to me

You, you are the love I live my life for
You, you are the love I’ll do anything for
You, you are the love I live my life for
You, you are the love I’ll do anything for
And I love you...
Really I do
Track Name: Happimess
I’ve been testing, my patience
Waiting for, good graces
Hoping happiness is gonna fall on top of my head
Feel my hair, it’s getting sticky
It’s bloody proof that timing is tricky
If you want happiness it’s oozing right out of my head

Ooh-we-ooh
I’m so happy I’m screaming
Ooh-we-ooh
Say it loud so I believe it
Ooh-we-ooh
Well I came here to confess
I can’t shake this stress

You keep talking, but no one’s listening
Talk enough and, it’s gonna sink in
Ignorance is the happy mess inside of your mind
Thought about it, but haven’t done it
The things I love, don’t fill my wallet
If you want happiness it’s going right into your ear

Ooh-we-ooh
I’m so happy I’m screaming
Ooh-we-ooh
Say it loud so I believe it
Ooh-we-ooh
Well I came here to confess
I can’t shake this stress

Kiss me on the cheek
And I cry for weeks
What a happy mess...
Track Name: Cuddle Party
Too much of anything can
Be exhausting
Take a break from everything and
Let’s have party

Come on a cuddle
Cuddle party
Come on a cuddle
Cuddle party

Touching warm skin
And soft hands
You are my
You’re my new friend
Touching warm skin
And soft hands
Let’s make some
Some new friends

I’m getting low on energy so
Get me excited
Get your body heat next to me and
Let’s have a party

Come on a cuddle
Cuddle party
Come on a cuddle
Cuddle party

Touching warm skin
And soft hands
You are my
You’re my new friend
Touching warm skin
And soft hands
Let’s make some
Some new friends

Go ahead touch a stranger oh-wuh-oh
In here there’s no danger oh-wuh-oh
You wanna feel some love oh-wuh-oh
The kind of love in a hug oh-wuh-oh
Cuddle healing...
Track Name: Sun In You
You won’t catch me surfing
Unless Frankie wants to lend me a board
Cause I’m always stuck working
Working hard at not getting too bored
Now my feet have been hurting
Hurting for some hot sand on my toes
Pile on the sun lotion
And maybe some zinc on my nose

I know that any day now I could die
Don’t wanna know the future, when or why
But when my body goes out of tune
I just want the sun in you
I just want the sun in you
I just want the sun in you
I just want the sun in you

Don’t answer until it feels right
If not now then maybe tomorrow night
When are you gonna feel alright
I’m dancing now be-because it feels right
Track Name: Not Dead
Starting to feel like I’m taking up space
Letting time just go to waste
I thought I knew what I’d been after
But as the clock ticks I sense a disaster
There’s a curse that’s been put on us
And this wait weighs way too much
Is there evil rooted deep within it
Or people pushing buttons keeping secrets

Oh no no
It ends when we begin it
Oh no no
It ends when we begin it

We’re doomed but it sounds so good
We’re not dead yet
We’re doomed but it sounds so good
We’re not dead yet
We’re doomed but it sounds so good
We’re not dead yet
We’re doomed but it sounds so good
We’re not dead yet
Not yet

Well you can call me something straight to my face
And I’ll breaking out the war paints
Push the shit out if it makes you feel good
Make it don’t break it baby, knocking knocking on wood
There’s a dark cloud circling us
And when it rains play time gets rough
I start to shake and then forget what I’m doing
Look out pretty people it’s time to get ruined
Track Name: Dolores
Oh Dolores, whatever happened to Dee Dee
Seduced by modern beatnik poetry
Her champagne won’t stay cold all afternoon
Is she still waiting for the ladies room

Oh Dolores
Do what your Mother says
Oh Dolores
Let’s go to bed

Oh Dolores, whatever happens to Connie
She passed out from eating too many brownies
Instead I’ll have a Mexican popsicle
Zip up my leathers and go ride cycles

Oh Dolores
Do what your Mother says
Oh Dolores
Let’s go to bed

If wanna get naked
Don’t get on my blanket
And if you wanna go wrestle
You’re gonna get some whistles, whistles
And if you kick my dog
And you drink all my liquor
Put away the acoustic and feel
The wrath of the finger

Me and Dolores lie in the sunshine...
