FBI When I’m in the cafe Are you sitting across from me? Am I under suspicion? Are you sworn to secrecy? Yesterday I bought some pot And there’s nothing wrong with me I did not report all my tips But you know that al-rea-dy Chorus Hey Secret agent watching everything I do It’s nice to know someone’s reading all those tweets. hey secret agent, watching everything I do hey secret agent, can you tell me what to do? Should I leave my current job And look for something new? Does my boyfriend really like me, Is there someone new? When I move the cursor, I feel you by my side. When I leave my home Do you slip inside? Bridge Can I really trust you? Do I have a choice? Do you control it all now? Do the people still have a voice? Do you know my passwords? Are they strong enough? Have you seen my photos? Am I sharing way too much? Have you seen my band play? Are you hear tonight? Did you get a recording? Does it sound alright?

I met you at Grove and Hyde You passed by, in the tide You stumbled and grabbed my arm Laughing, you smiled wide I saw you / I saw you Who are you? / Are you real, you? Chorus Walking down the middle of Market Street, Carrying a sign marching to the beat. Verse2 You kinda ripped my sleeve off I’m not at all peeved off The way you clung onto me, All I can say is Jeez Who are you? / I saw you Who are you? / Are you real, you? Chorus 2 Walking down the middle of Market Street Then, it happened, near Leavenworth Street Never got your name Myself to blame How will I find you again? Wish I knew your name. Verse3 I turned to look at something In that second you went missing Swept away by the crowd of thousands who were marching Where are you? / I saw you Who are you? / Are you real, you? Chorus 2 Walking down the middle of Market Street Wondering where it is next we’ll meet Never got your name Myself to blame How will I find you again? Wish I knew your name.

After you had a merlot or two I wonder what’s come over You seem like you really lose your mind. My friends all say it’s ok been there before myself To get laid it’s better to forget. Chorus Perhaps the next time or two you’ll be like someone I read about A woman who won’t be insane. But I shouldn’t hold my breath things don’t change all that much Maybe I’ll just go home and get stoned instead. Maybe the one in yoga class, she looks pretty serious. 2 verse When I see you lose your mind I look around and try to hide But nothing can prevent this social suicide. I wonder what I’m doing here then I know it’s my own choice. Man, I think this game is fixed. Chorus 2 Perhaps the next time or two you’ll be like someone I read about, A woman who won’t be insane. But I shouldn’t hold my breath, things don’t change all that much Maybe I’ll just go home and get drunk instead. Maybe the one in yoga class, she looks pretty serious Chorus 3 Perhaps the next time or two you’ll be like someone I read about, A woman who won’t be insane. But I shouldn’t hold my breath Things don’t change all that much . Maybe I’ll just go home and watch porn instead. Maybe the one in yoga class she looks pretty serious .

She brought in so much light. The room changed from night. Sweet beauty she brings in her face And her song. In my heart can’t be hers. Can’t keep her here for long. She says give it a try. I say crazy. Chorus It’s crazy to try out love. It’s crazy and bound to fail. But it’s cool, cool crazy. Each time I see her so bright I don’t have a chance alright I'm in her sights, and bang I'm gone Love is a fickle friend Usually from beginning to end but there's one just one that's crazy chorus Bridge Diamonds in her eyes alright. Going to have to hold tight. That love is neither right nor wrong. It’s absolutely crazy you see How much she means to me And I don’t know how long I hold on break And I’m sure it’s alright. Can my heart hold on tight To the chance that she’s right And I’m wrong? But it’s too late now I have to believe in her song The siren’s song with a smile. And I say crazy.

Every time you come around Every time you pass my way Every time you stop and say hello It’s a brand new day. Everybody says love is stupid Everybody says loves a waste of time But everybody has someone to live for Everybody but me. Funny how I feel so shy Funny how I dare to say Funny how when you smile at me It’s a brand new day. Everybody says love’s for losers Everybody says loves a waste of time But everybody has someone to live for Everybody but me. break Now everything is different Now everything’s gonna be ok Now everything seems possible It’s a brand new day. Everybody says love is stupid Everybody says loves a waste of time But everybody has someone to live for Everybody but me.

Wake up in the morning Click and see what’s new Thousands of friends out there Clicking and swiping too The glow from your screen keeps me warm and comforts me too You give me everything I need Oh yes it’s true [Chorus] You’re my friend my love You’re everything it’s true In my automatic life With nothing else to do You’re my friend my love You’re everything it’s true They pick up my laundry Gave me a cookie too Uber to work then off to the bar for a Fireball or two Food delivered, cat box cleaned Is there nothing my phone can’t do? If there was an app for wiping my butt I’d probably use it too [Chorus] You’re my friend my love You’re everything it’s true In my automatic life With nothing else to do You’re my friend my love You’re everything it’s true Apps do everything for me That my momma used to do Contact with the outside world Is minimal too If they’re not wired in They might be poor too Social skills at an all time low Just like the rest of you [Chorus] You’re my friend, my love Hashtag it must be true In my automatic life Just me and my phone will do Me, in my automatic life I don’t have to deal with you

Kimberly you’re driving me mad Kimberly you’re driving me mad Kimberly what can I say? Kimberly you won’t go away Last night I met you in the bar Sent your friend home in a car For being drunk and disorderly Then you sort of glommed on to me Kimberly what can I say? Kimberly you won’t go away Kimberly you’re just not my type Kimberly I won’t put up a fight Well we could give it a whirl You seem like a really sweet girl But we don’t agree po-li-ti-cal-ly And [you know] that’s important to me. Kimberly what can I say? Kimberly you won’t go away Kimberly you’re just not my type Kimberly I won’t put up a fight Kimberly “Well, all right”

I was working a door at a club where the technistas and hipsters meet sunglasses, big hair, man buns everywhere. Now this guy tried to come inside porkpie hat eyes open wide with a fashion statement most extrodinare. Chorus 1 . The guy had no pants eyes glazed like he was in a trance tried to bribe me with money that smelled kind of funny. The guy with no pants tried to tell me he came from France. Tried to get by me just wearing a pair of BVDs. Hey its cold out here can I come inside he said while wobbling side to side with a voice full of false cheer “I got my handstamp right here” I left my cell phone inside he said while swaying side to side. But the problem what what he didn’t wear. Chorus 2 The guy had no pants eyes eyes glazed like he was in a trance tried to bribe me with money that smelled kinda funny. The guy with no pants said he was a master of modern dance tried to get by me just wearing a pair of BVDs. The Rant.... Ahhh c’mon be cool dude. Can’t you tell I’m an artist? Look my parents could buy and sell you pal. Hey don’t close the door its cold out here. Capitalists!! Bourgeois!! Republican!! Open this door let me guess—you hate all creative people. Chorus 3 The guy with no pants eyes glazed like he was in a trance tried to bribe we money that smelled kinda funny. The guy with no pants tried to tell me he came from France Tried to get by me just wearing a pair of BVDS.......

Neon glow humming outside my room. Sounds of the city below Oops it's way past the hour no need to hurry we have all the time in the world. Chorus. Last call, last chance too late, last dance. The sands of time just blow away. Too little, too late this is our fate but we had all the time in the world… Just talking for hours about everything and nothing the future is ours you know. But time flickers forward never returning. We had all the time in the world.

No matter what I did, I was never good enough. No matter when it was, life was always sort of rough. I traveled way out West to get away I traveled way out West No matter where the trail The thing’s on my tail It’s going to finish me soon, I attract the teeth to match my wound(s). No matter where I went, trouble was always there to greet me. No matter who I met, it was always the same story. I traveled way out West to get away I traveled way out West No matter where I go The thing seems to know. It’s going to finish me soon, I attract the teeth to match my wound(s). bridge: You can never run You can never hide If you were bitten The thing lurks inside No matter what the pain, the past’s never gonna hurt me. No matter what it is, the thing’s never gonna kill me. I traveled way out West to get away I traveled way out West No matter where I ride The thing’s by my side. It’s going to finish me soon, I attract the teeth to match my wound(s).

Octopus that’s all I want nothing else will do that’s all I crave octopus & you I was in the mood for octopus That’s when nothing else will do I went down to the beach to catch some octopus who was out there swimming I jumped into the dark, cold sea. that’s all I want nothing else will do that’s all I crave octopus & you There the octopus attacked me, He wanted to eat some people After a fight I crushed his head with a rock And he died and I pulled him outta the dark, cold sea. that’s all I want nothing else will do that’s all I crave octopus stew I cooked him up and ate him It was the best octopus I ever had My being was infused with essence of octopus It made me wanna jump back into the dark, cold sea.
