Ram through the door, display your name in neon marquee Weasel your way into the frame, life of the party Soon enough hoist the group baton and grasp the reigns, commence the march To the belly-full, two-tone jamboree in the dark Time fades away, depreciate the silly casuals And speculate what you could make, it’s only natural Stake in the ground, foundation for your mansion house on muddy shore Time to cut away, get gone, ghost ‘em You overloading You overfloating You overtaking Are you mistaken? Climb to the top of the summit ‘til you’re the trophy Feel at the base to hold your place, life of the party Look down upon your precious works for any dirt or extra mirk Time to cut away, get gone, got ‘em You overloading You overfloating You overtaking Are you mistaken? You’ve been itching of improving stitches Scoping aisles, combing for the best Are you lacking, got your ego dragging? You cut unwanteds, coming for me next

I stumbled upon a strange beauty And in a town I’d never strolled before She whispered history just like she knew me Until I came in closer wanting more You might have me wrapped up And my dollars are out Are you my Charleston rose Will you hold up forever or wither out of fold Be my little Charleston rose And remind both of us of forever ago I was enamored and titillated Under palmettos with their nosy eyes Her shape had focused from gentle blades Into ethereal weaving like a prize And in that moment I just had to cave in Just like old Rico had told me so You might have me wrapped up And my dollars are out Are you my Charleston rose Will you hold up forever or wither out of fold Be my little Charleston rose If I’m sent upriver will you keep up whole In our luggage baby, I don’t know When I see you next will it be familiar Keep green my Charleston rose And remind both of us of forever ago Be my little Charleston rose

It’s too damn easy to forget that the sun still shines Lost in it all before someone catches your eye The ocean waves will only carry boards that try I fake defeat just to go gawk on the sidelines Pick me up and let me glide tonight Forget all the weight I drag behind You snap me out of resting fog within my mind And lead me down to all the hidden tourist sights Get lost in dance with old pop songs and cliché lines And wrap me up without a word that you are mine Pick me up and let me glide tonight Forget all the weight I drag behind Pick me up and let me glide tonight Cut loose all the weight I drag, the weight I drag behind Hey, won’t you tell me how we are both here together now? Hey, won’t you tell me why you came? Hey, can’t we leave behind all of these imaginary binds? Hey, won’t you tire just the same?

Take Notes 03:31
You think you’re hilarious, you better take notes When all of your diatribes have all the same jokes You never apologize for breaking off limbs Sew them together now for your appendage But sometime you might try to take a walk Past all the suits on your protected block Just take a step down carefully off your gold-coated soapbox And talk to me with your hands at your sides No velvet ropes or credits earned Now that the bubble has been burst You’re going to get a whopper right there where it hurts Take notes You think you’re American in your spangled-star cloak Spouting core principles with snot in your throat Splattered on documents in bold comic sans Raised up for all to view and cry on command But sometime you might try to take a walk Past all the suits on your protected block Just take a step down carefully off your gold-coated soapbox And talk to me with your hands at your sides No velvet ropes or credits earned Now that the bubble has been burst You’re going to get a whopper right there where it hurts Perk up to all words that are spoke From all the ones that need you most You’re going to learn that love and freewill can’t be owned Take notes
