Track Name: Billy and the Big C
I was small town boy with a city dream
Wanted to be a star on the silver screen
Just Play my guitar and ride horses

A singing cowboy
ropin’ rider
lady killer, “the boy’s fire”
“The boy’s on fire”
“Head west young man, while you’re still in your prime”
You got the talent not the time”

So I moved on out to Los Angeles
Where they pay to play and smoke angel dust
I never seen so many assholes in my life

They like the EDM and the GHB
They got a DJ spinnin at the grocery
I’m just a simple fool with an old guitar and some silly rhymes
Got my headshots, told my folks I was fine
I got the talent not the time

Then I moved on out to New York City
Where the girls play rough so the boys stay pretty
They’ll tie you ooo and they’ll knock you down
Got me a gig at a hotel bar
Where the manager said I could play my guitar
For a twenty bucks, the beer on tap, and a burger and fries
Played my heart out every other Monday Night
I Got the talent not the time

Then i went on back to Pennsylvania
Where all my old friends became strangers
I was pretty sure we had nothing left in common
but we told our stories well into the night
same old stories, felt kinda right
til one of them fuckers just had to ask me, “How’s your life”
some say I got 6 months, some say I got 9.
I got the talent not the time

Doctors, they got a funny way of tellin a man he’s dyin
“I got the talent not the time”
Track Name: Lemonade Stand
Lemonade Stand

I need some money babe, you need some money babe
What the hell we gonna do?
I need some money babe, you need some money babe
To make our hollywood dreams come true-ue-ue
What the hell we gonna do?

We can open up a lemonade stand
Pay naked teenagers to swear to God we squeeze it in the morning
Wo o o
We can open up a lemonade stand
on Hollywood and vine
Use fancy words like local and organic
We’re so local and organic O-O


O O Well I know You know
It’s only country time
I know you know we’re always drunk on wine at work
Yeah I know you know we added LSD
Yeah I know our friends drink for free

We can open up a lemonade stand
make an app, call it, “Order-While-Drivin”
Hope you’ve got a doctor and a lawyer
We can open up a lemonade stand
Post our shits on instagram
So we can sell more yellow sugar water
charge YUPPY angelinos seven dollar

O O Well I know You know
It’s only country time
I know you know we’re always drunk on wine at work
Yeah I know you know we added LSD
Yeah I know our friends drink for free

We can open up a lemonade stand
Pay naked teenagers to swear to God we squeeze it in the morning
Wo o o
We can open up a lemonade stand
on Hollywood and vine
Use fancy words like local and organic
Track Name: Directors
Let’s head west to tinsletown hotwire the old man’s car
We’ll write the press ‘bout our arrival
I’ll play Stanley ‘hind the scene you’ll be my shining star
My Shelly Duvall


But we’ll need more than love my honey, a beat up ford and your momma’s rent money
To ensure our survival
I’ll lie cheat steal kill. Local boys won’t but this man will
I won’t give up til i die

We sold off our clothes
Fixed our teeth and noses
moved mountains jacked on mole hills of camels & cocaine

We became PAs
2nd ADs in the DGA
Best boys and Lead men
We can’t all be directors
We can’t all be directors after all

Let’s play rough in tinseltown, hang puppets from their strings
And give the editors their angles
Cast me couch me, anything, step on me and repeat
Then soft sex with the background

We took off our clothes
Hacked off our noses
moved mountains jacked on mole hills of camels & cocaine

We became PAs
2nd ADs in the DGA
Best boys and Lead men
We can’t all be directors
We can’t all be directors after all

I don’t wanna die in Southern California
Maybe you and I
Leave without warning yeah
What have we got to lose
but ourselves

Oh baby
I don’t wanna die in Southern California
Maybe you and I
leave in the morning yeah
Gary had a lot of good things to say about Pittsburgh

camels & cocaine

Talking

We can’t all be directors
We can’t all be directors after all
Track Name: Entertain Me
I don’t know how to fall in love
with anybody who loves me
I just know how to fall in love
with girls beyond my grasp
But i see something in your eyes
something i don’t often see yeah
Baby

Let’s make out for just a little while
there’s a timer app on my cell phone
We don’t need to tell anyone
we don’t need to be all alone
yeah i see something in your eyes
something i don’t often see yeah
Baby
entertain me


Do you really wanna fall in love?
Do you really wanna die, in some else’s arms?
Do you really wanna feel an ideal fall apart?
Do you really wanna break my heart

Maybe we can still fall in love
just until the morning
I’ve got issues I’ve got scars
consider this your warning
But i see something in your eyes
something i don’t often see yeah
Baby
entertain me

I’m Drunk, Let’s Fuck

I headed out the bar
To celebrate the fact that my life was over
But that’s the night
I met my wife
An’ she grabbed me by the heart
When she said these 4 words

“I’m Drunk
Let’s fuck”
We can do it in the back of my pickup truck
I got few tricks most young men never seen, before

“I’m Drunk
Let’s fuck”

So you better walk away if you think that you’ll want more

And she said yippeki a

Things like this don’t happen much to guys look me
So i asked her to repeat herself
and she grabbed me by the heart
When she said these 4 words

We can do it in the back of my pickup truck
I got few tricks most young men never seen, before

“I’m Drunk
Let’s fuck”

Track Name: Assholes 2
You say you love me but I feel the hatred
Now love isn’t love if it’s not universal
You say potato I say tomato
You sleep with my sister, I’ll murder you brother
That really escalated fast
woo

Oh God will not save us from godly men
No God will not save us from those assholes we call facebook friends

Driving electric impresses the millenials
Model for molly if you have a swimming pool
Everyone’s equal, when everyone’s loaded
We’re hire the homeless to deports the hipsters
2 birds 1 stone
Woo

Oh God will not save us from godly men
No God will not save us from those assholes we call facebook friends

You voted for Trump just to see what would happen
I made my I Voted sticker in Photoshop
Talking to Jesus can make you feel crazy
Deceiving believers has always been easy!!
woo?

Oh God will not save us from godly men
No God will not save us from those assholes we call facebook friends
Track Name: Sweet Michelle
Those words didn’t come out right
“Take me home and hurt me tonight”
We were cruisin in my gold chevelle
High as a kite with my sweet Michelle

Oooo
hit a tree going 85
Oooo
They say I’m lucky to be alive

I don’t really give a good goddamn about these motherfuckers
They say I’m gonna die
alone behind these walls
I don’t really give a good goddamn about local authorities
An asshole with a badge can’t break my balls

Momma says we’re livin in paradise
without my love it’s like a living hell
Serving life in penitentiary
The won’t shine here in my prison cell

Ooooo
I’m sorry for what I done
Ooooo
Sweet Michelle I’m coming home

I don’t really give a good goddamn about these motherfuckers
They say I’m gonna die
alone behind these walls
I don’t really give a good goddamn about local authorities
An asshole with a badge can’t break my balls

Momma says we’re livin in paradise
without my love it’s like a living hell
Serving life in penitentiary
The won’t shine here in my prison cell

Ooooo
I’m sorry for what I done
Ooooo
My Sweet Michelle I’m coming home
