Track Name: Everything You Need To Know
Just look
in her eyes,
and you'll know

If it's right
you won't ever
want to go

If it's right
her eyes
will show

(you) Everything
that you think
you need to know

And I know
In her eyes,
I know

She was true
we were young
we were wounded

She would do
with her tongue
what I wouldn't (tell the truth)

We mistook
what was right
because of our pain

But if she'd look,
in my eyes
now she would say

I know
In his eyes
I know

In our eyes
we'd know
oh, in our eyes
we know

yeah we know

(treat your lover right)
Track Name: The Streets
DTLA,
black limousines
homeless in pain
on the same streets

Most look away,
with no c(s)en(se)ts to say
you ok?

R U DTF?
we are just meat
like (hot) dogs between teeth
both sold on the streets

Most think this way
Not one s(cent)in to pay
it's ok

cuz i get all from This Life that I need
I get all from this life on the Streets

LAPD
super pacs
protect and serve
interests of greed

Guess not much has changed,
since the dawn of exchange
yah I know.

See CIA
sold crack to the crips
they took no blame
stole futures from cribs

Where are they now?

Gotta sell their time and mind to The Man
Workin' minimum wage like a Slave dead in the sand
while the Masters decide supply and demand,
I'll be drunk in the Streets cold at night, by a taco stand

but I've got all of the time that I Need
yes, I've got all from This Life on the Streets
yes I've got all of the time that I need
I've got all that's left of my Mind after smokin' so much weed

(remember to stick it to The Man, kids)
Track Name: Place To Be (Nick Drake)
When I was young, younger than before
I never saw the truth hanging from the door
And now I'm older, see it face to face
And now I'm older, gotta get up clean the place

And I was green, greener than the hill
Where the flowers grew and the sun shone still
Now I'm darker than the deepest sea
Just hand me down, give me a place to be

And I was strong, strong in the sun
I thought I'd see when day was done
Now I'm weaker than the palest blue
Oh, so weak in this need for you
Track Name: Odd Couple
My friend Dave, he is a slave to the endless load and save, type, watch, masturbate.
My Madeleine, she fills her mind with many violent ways to die. She won't dance, she won't sing, she's afraid of being alive.
Take it straight from me, he said 'Take it girl, then leave.' She said, 'boy quit begging me. Boy get off your knees.'
He said, 'I don't know all your secrets, I don't know all your secrets--since we are both just strangers, I'll tell you one of my secrets. -- I'm afraid of losing control.' She said, 'Well, I'm afraid of being a joke.' They say 'you know you shouldn't be,' you know you shouldn't be.
Take it straight from me, he said 'Fake it girl, and I'll leave.' She said, 'Boy I'm begging please. One day get on you knees. One day, get on your knees.'
Track Name: Blindside
At the age of 17
I felt what love could be
From the eyes of a young girl
And the way they looked at me,

But we grew and grew away
I never had to say--

Hey, I'd love you if I could
I love you
If I could
I'd love you, if I could--
You just hit me from a blindside,
You just hit me from a blindside.
You just hit me
blind
--
I met a girl of 24
Who'd never been in love before
Surprises were in store
When we began to court,
shared some pleasure

Oh her heart broke open,
I was still uncertain
--

Now in ten years I'll be wandering
Some foreign street after midnight
And arm in arm with her husband
And shorter hair and wiser eyes
I'll pass by like a ghost in the night
She won't know if it's me or a look alike
I'll just hit her from a blindside
I'll just hit her from a blindside
Thinking I'd love you if I only could
Yes I'd love you if I only could
And if I had some sight I think I would
If I had some sight I think I would
And if I had some sight I know I would
If I had some sight,
I'd give you
all of my love
all my love
oh, my love
all my love
--

Now I never see what's coming
No
I never saw what was coming
