Track Name: America's Next Top ____ pt. 1
I got what it takes, I know it
That indescribable it that you can’t put yer finger on
My friends and my fam know that I’m a trendsetter
I got what it takes, I know it
See I’ve been practicing for days now and I’m ready for this time to pay off

I’m gonna be America’s next top something
I’m gonna be America’s next top something
I’m gonna be America’s next top something
I’m gonna be America’s next top something

I got what it takes
You got what it takes
We got what it takes
I got what it takes
I got what it takes
Track Name: Everyone is Everyone
No one’s a punk
No one’s a fag
Tags are just words, and words are a drag
No one’s got blue eyes
No one’s got green
We all were blind ‘fore anyone’d seen

Everyone is everyone else
So shut the fuck up and go fuck yerself
Everyone is everyone else
Let’s shut the fuck up and go fuck ourselves

Everyone’s a sinner
Everyone’s a saint
All of us can all of us cain’t
No one’s a Christian
No one’s a Jew
No one needs no one to know what to do
Everybody’s Ghandi
Everyone’s Khadafi
I don’ speak softly so back the hell up off me
No one’s a nigga
No one’s a chink
We’re all just Mutts
Know what I think?

I think everyone is everyone else
So shut the fuck up and go fuck yerself
Everyone is everyone else

Let’s shut the fuck up and go fuck ourselves

I was walking down Division Avenue on a Wednesday afternoon
And the sun was shining but this cat was throwing lightning bolts in my atmosphere
I don’t mean to step on anyone’s storm cloud – sometimes you gotta go Zeus on a bed of iris –
But I said, “hey there dandelion, let’s make a puppy that sings like a tiger lily.”

Everyone is everyone else
Let's shut the fuck up and go fuck ourselves
Everyone is everyone else
Everyone is everyone else
So shut the fuck up and go fuck yerself
Everyone is everyone else
Let’s shut the fuck up and go fuck ourselves
I said everyone, I said everyone, I mean EVERYONE is everyone else
I said everyone, I said everyone and I MEAN EVERYONE, I said everyone is everyone else
Track Name: Real Good Boy
Girl you got yerself a big strong man
Alright - I got one, too
Now won’t you leave me alone with him
Relax, I’ll treat him real good for you
I saw ya’s ‘cross that dance floor
He’s hittin’ on you, shakin’ your ass more
Well I’ve never been more sure
That he don’t know what that thing’s for

I can’t disguise what’s on my mind
I’m terrified, but I can’t hide
I can’t disguise what’s on my mind
So I won’t lie – I’ll be a real good boy

When I trade familiar flannel for the warmth of your wool
Will you look me in the eyes, tell me who’s the fool?

Now he’s curious
Well alright – I was there once, too
So go on, leave me alone with him
Relax, this gets real good for you
Here’s the deal and you’ve gotta make it
I’ll show him what it feels like to take it
And either he’ll get so good you ain’t gotta fake it
Or I’ma make an honest man of your heartbreaker

I can’t disguise what’s on my mind
I’m terrified, but I can’t hide
I can’t disguise what’s on my mind
So I won’t lie – I’ll be a real good boy
Track Name: Like Mama Had
There’s no use trying
There’s too much to do
I mean, living ain’t livin’
For me or my crew
Night shifts at diners
Across town to open your store
We spend all our time getting by
There’s no time for anymore
Yet you call us selfish,
Say we got it easy today
But if we had something to spare
We’d give it all away

There’s no use getting’ up
It hurts when we fall
Ain’t no one around here
To lean on at all
We don’t need your diamonds
We don’t need your gowns and black ties
Don’t need a thing that you’ve got;
We’ve just got to get by
I know you hear us
We don’t expect your hand
All that we ask is a spot upon the ground when we stand

Like Mama had

Never were islands
Mama would know
For she made the oceans
She knows deeper and deeper they go
Strange accusations
Disconnected from the plan
You can’t see the ground for the dirt
Can’t see the soul for the man
Although we have fought
Still I need you
I pray one day you’ll have the thought
The thought that you need me too

Like Mama did
Track Name: I'm Trying
I'm trying
to find something to rely on
'cause I'm dying
to be the one you can get by on
I'm trying
to be the one you'll run from
in need of living your life
to feel the sun shining on your skin in bed
on the night when you come home tired.

I'm driving through the gut of a ghost now
These highway nights of a man will get the most, now.
I stumbled into a younger me with less miles.
The one you lovin', still, though he's been gone quite awhile
Hell bent on tryin...

to be the one you'll run from
in need of living your life
to feel the sun shining on your skin in bed
on the night when you come home tired.

For now you're all alone
I know I'm doing you wrong, but I miss you
and you never let on, no you never let on –
I know you must be lonely, but you never let on it's me

it’s me, the one who's running from
a need to make things right
I need the sun shining on your lips in bed
every night
while I'm trying to be the one you'll run from
in need of living your life
to feel the sun shining on your skin in bed
on the night when you come home tired.
Track Name: America's Next Top ____ pt. 2
I’ve got what it takes, I know it
Put me in front of a crowd; people like me
And we all know that profit is just popularity
I got what it takes, they tell me
I adapt quickly to changing trends
I’ll wear whatever you want; I don’t care anymore

I’m gonna be America’s next top something
I’m gonna be America’s next top something
I’m gonna be America’s next top something
I’m gonna be America’s next top something

I’ve got what it takes
I’ve got what it takes
I’ve got what it takes
I’ve got what it takes
I’ve got what it takes
I’ve got what it takes
I’ve got what it takes
I’ve got what it takes
Track Name: Shake It Up
Sitting in the corner, guess I’m not such a real good boy
Mama says I’m far too old to be playing with toys
“Put down your kaleidoscope and check your blind spot, son”
This direction’s left for dead – it’s time to turn instead

Shake it up, shake it up, shake it up
Shake it up, shake it up, shake it up
Shake it up, shake it up

Don’t know the difference between old timers and has-beens
I’m not gonna stick around to find where I fit in
My ego busted off, my rearview bustin’ seems
Now nothing’s far away, not as far as it seems
I cracked my lookin’ back
Packed a stolen Cadillac
Found a tattered map
I’m going wherever it leads

Shake it up, shake it up, shake it up
Shake it up, shake it up, shake it up
Shake it up, shake it up

Only my confusion has the confidence
To stand up and be counted ‘though it makes no sense
The dirt is always cleaner so I hop the fence
And shake it up shake it up shake it up shake it again

Once I had it figured out I left it in the dust
Yes is not an answer I will ever learn to trust
Lean in for the lesson, hear I’ll whisper in your ear…
shhhhhhhhhake it up, shake it up, shake it up
Shake it up, shake it up, shake it up
Shake it up, shake it up, shake it up
shake it up.
Track Name: Breed
God took my rib, devil took my soul
They gave both to a woman, left me down in a hole
And I didn’t have a thing to say about it
God took my rib, devil took my soul
They gave both to a woman, left me down in a hole

He’s got everything he wants, he’s got all he needs
She’s got everything she wants, she’s got all she needs
We’ve got everything we want, yeah we were born to breed
But I didn’t have a thing to say about it

Got took my smile, devil took my frown
I got nothin’ but a woman now
And I didn’t have a thing to say about it
God took my smile, devil took my frown
I got nothin’ but a woman now

He’s got everything he wants, he’s got all he needs
She’s got everything she wants, she’s got all she needs
We’ve got everything we want, yeah we were born to breed
But I didn’t have a thing to say about it
Track Name: Proof
Playing and prying your paws are like presents
You wrap up for Christmas and forget ‘til Valentine’s Day
Otherwise meaningless days like relationships
Founded on fucking but furthered by fear of winding up alone
Everyone’s everyone else but I’m getting the feeling that
lately you’d rather just live by yourself
I guess I can’t blame you – sometimes I’m the same, too
The stress it’ll change you, experience frames you
Like a door, locked and boarded, I’m too scared to knock on it

Prove it
Show me proof and I won’t lie, I’ll love you skeptically
Prove it
Show me proof and I won’t lie, lost faith in I love you’s
What about true love is blind?
You’ll respond skeptically
Ain’t no faith in a world full of proof

Never madder than mad as a lover with Cadillac caddishness
searching so easily for another
Picking up stones in pursuit of perfection we’re missing connections
We’ve thrown silence off of a cliff
Stabbing through sages with pages and pages
A torrent of false accusations with swift replies
No wonder I can’t hold a thought for a second without second-guessing
Or needlessly stressing at your door, wanting more, I don’t care, I just gotta knock

Prove it
Show me proof and I won’t lie, I’ll love you skeptically
Prove it
Show me proof and I won’t lie, lost faith in I love you’s
What about true love is blind?
You’ll respond skeptically
Ain’t no faith in a world full of proof

Won’t you kiss me like you’ve got something to prove
Won’t you kiss me like you’ve got something to prove
Won’t you kiss me like you used to
Track Name: People
It’s a real problem (it is)

People make more people make more people make more people
People make more people make more people make more people
People make more people make more people make more people
People make more people make more people make more people

There’s no question that it’s gonna pay off
It’s a real problem (it is)
Television is awful
It’s a real problem

People make more people make more people make more people
People make more people make more people make more people
People make more people make more people make more people
People make more people make more people make more people
People make more people make more people make more people
People make more people make more people make more people
People make more people make more people make more people
People make more people make more people make more people

If you look at a python and you see the pig moving through the python
I’m at the head and you’re moving toward the tail
(So I’m envious of you)
You’re already halfway down the snake
(That’s one way of looking at it… not a particularly pleasant way of looking at it)
We’ll both come out the same end

People make more people make more people make more people
People make more people make more people make more people
People make more people make more people make more people
People make more people make more people make more people
People make more people make more people make more people
People make more people make more people make more people
People make more people make more people make more people
People make more people make more people make more people
Track Name: Stone
Saving all my money
To buy a real nice stone
I make money to make money
I’ll buy a really nice stone
Nobody gonna read “here lies a man that died alone.”

I’m saving all my friends now
They live right in my hand
I make friends to make more friends
And I count ‘em by all of their plans
None of them are calling me tonight, but no one can call me a lonely man
I’m not a lonely man

I’m saving all my money
Buy a really nice stone
I make money to make money
And buy a really nice stone
So nobody gonna read “here lies a man who died alone.”
Track Name: Black Ties & Diamonds
Through the hall I was hustling
Passed a double door
it was more than familiar,
I had been there once before
No time to consider
as I took the stage
I held on to the image
like a bookmark on a blank page

Black ties and diamonds
Black ties and diamonds
Black ties and diamonds
All that I know

When the night had retired
Silent like a ledge
And my memory a jumper
Pulling me slowly off the edge
In my youth I cut roses
Pressed and tucked away
In a book I’m still meaning
To read one of these days

Black ties and diamonds
Black ties and diamonds
Black ties and diamonds
All that I know
Black ties and diamonds
Black ties and diamonds
Black ties and diamonds
Not a one do I own

This is it, don’t get scared now
Cut it on my stone:
“As hard as he tried,
This man lies here alone.”

Black ties and diamonds
Black ties and diamonds
Black ties and diamonds
All that I know
Black ties and diamonds
Black ties and diamonds
Black ties and diamonds
Not a one do I own
All that I know
Not a one do I own
All that I know
Not a one do I own
All that I know
Not a one do I own
All that I know
Not a one do I own
All that I know
Track Name: America's Next Top ____ pt. 3
I’ve got what it takes, they tell me
I’d wait forever for things that aren’t coming
I’ve got patience
And a fresh new look, again
I’ve got what it takes, I know it
I don’t shy away from mounting debt
Or distance from my closest friends

I’m gonna be America’s Next Top Something
I’m gonna be America’s Next Top Something
I’m gonna be America’s Next Top Something
I’m gonna be America’s Next Top Something
I’m gonna be America’s Next Top Something
I’m gonna be America’s Next Top Something
I’m gonna be America’s Next Top Something
I’m gonna be America’s Next Top Something
I’m gonna be America’s Next Top Something
I’m gonna be America’s Next Top Something
I’m gonna be America’s Next Top Something
I’m gonna be America’s Next Top Something
I’m gonna be America’s Next Top Something
I’m gonna be America’s Next Top Something
I’m gonna be America’s Next Top Something
I’m gonna be America’s Next Top Something
