Track Name: Keep It Clean
Does it make you happy to ignore me on streets?
I guess by now you think I’m weak
I wish you could have said something before now
I wouldn’t share a bag of chips with you
In my opinion you don’t have a clue
I’m being cruel I’m being cruel

I don’t want to be part of your scene
I’ll stick with him and keep my nose clean
You’re the one pretending to be licking stamps
All alone in a room following lines on maps
It’s clear you don’t want me here
How about I send you a book on nutrition
You can stop spoon-feeding me non-fiction
Just for a while, I will fake a smile
Why did you say she was a friend of mine?
I thought it was me you couldn’t stand
I’m confused
I will win you will lose
You’ve taken to phoning my house when you’re drunk
Confessing all your love
I wish you could have said so before now

I don’t want to be part of your scene
I’ll stick with him and keep my nose clean
Track Name: Amigo Mío
Permanece detrás
No tan cerca de mí
No sabes dónde he estado

No te sientes a mi lado
Permanece tan lejos de mí
Como yo quiero estar de ti

Este sitio es tan frío
No hables por mí
No quiero hablar
Es perder mi tiempo
No me hagas reír
No me hagas llorar
No me preguntes mi nombre
No me mires a los ojos
Amigo mío
Track Name: San Francisco Song
You know I cannot stand your love for alcohol
You’re such a tall man but you’re looking kind of small
I’ll send you movie stills to rid you of your ills
Because you’re ill

Now you’re finding out I’m hard to please
You’d better watch your mouth you’ll bring a girl close to tears
I ripped up my lyric book, gave myself the blackest look
Black looks

You would think by now I wouldn’t miss this place
It makes my poor legs weak and my sweet heart start to race
To race, yeah to race
