Track Name: Darling
use my friends and put us down
I don't need to bicker with you
go burn the Capitol right to the ground
if your precious ideals are so true
second-hand activist why do you preach
you act like you're some kind of master or priest
you're hung up on garments and haircuts and flesh
your experiments are just like all the rest
how do you feel when you're out in the street
or when you're alone in a bed
I wrote and recorded hundreds of songs and they will live on when I'm dead
so go right ahead and talk and talk
'cause you're too afraid to sing
another white man on stolen land
we'd kill you if you were a king
if you're such an intellectual man
then go teach politics don't be in a band
you're hung up on garments and haircuts and flesh
your experiments are just like all the rest
Track Name: Needing A Friend
when all the faces have disappeared
the thoughts you used to have they don't come true
you're needing a friend
and once again she is by herself
you realize that you are alone as well
you're needing a friend

sometimes I need her
sometimes I'm singing
does anybody need the things that I am bringing
Track Name: Blessed Blackness
you have a different view from your eyes I think it's good
and what you play is such a surprise I think it's good
blessed blackness I love you
blessed blackness I worship you
blessed blackness I love you
blessed blackness I worship you
I'm tuned in to just what you feel it's all the same
we need some music we need love it's all the same
looking at your hands you are the ancient man I know you will do better than I can
blessed blackness I love you
blessed blackness I worship you
blessed blackness I love you
blessed blackness I worship you
Track Name: Blame It On Me
you lost a million dollars and your stock is falling fast
you're walking in a puddle and your car won't run on gas
you gave your love a diamond and she won't wash your clothes
your hands are tied behind your back and you can't wipe your nose
I didn't scuff your shoes when you passed me on the street
you were talking on some telephone you were holding with your feet
you hide your love away and you guard it with your life
you never thought another man would take you for a wife
Track Name: Tough Face
you say the city would do me good you're wrong
you think I haven't been experienced you're wrong
don't you think it's time for living your life
are you happy with what's going on
your life
all I really want to do is be your friend
what about people makes them not be your friend
I do me you do you your thing
you are you I am I your thing
Track Name: Remember This Song
bright lights big city went to your head
you think something's happening, it's already dead
remember this song
you took what you wanted, then you went away
you latched onto someone new and you repeat what they say
all you want is new people
to see your new clothes
you say you're so open, how many times have you turned up your nose
remember this song
Track Name: Hurt My Pride
you run your mouth all day long
I can't get you to say a word
seems like the truth is somethin' you don't think I deserve
you better tell me everything about your other guy
or little girl you know that one of us is gonna die

you tried to hurt my pride
you tried to hurt my pride
yeah but you don't know
you say that you don't know now girl

you say that you don't know
just what's goin' on
I know that you just can't admit
how you done me wrong
you're doin' evil
'cause you can't understand my happiness girl
yeah you don't know

tried to hurt my pride
you tried to hurt my pride
Track Name: Strangers
strangers - that's what you need
tell them who you are and they believe
strangers - don't have a past
trick your mind into thinking that it's gonna last

strangers - come from the dark
they think that it's real when you pretend that you've got a heart
strangers - hear what they say
put on your mask when you see that they are comin' your way
