Track Name: Tangerine [feat. Bambi & Les Lapins Lundis]
i found you squeezed in my backpack
i heard you sneeze and had to backtrack
said please and got your snapchat
jacked the keys and crashed the hatchback
napsack queen hit me 1 2
blackjack cream gimme fun food
slap happy dream shimmy on cue
fast track the Beam with the sun with the moon
but lava don’t flow like Tanqueray
mama won’t know til she pass away
holla when you blow your planned escape
on your cobblestone vogue and your beaujolais
Mononoke just wait for me
loco no se if you’re straight and sweet
quel beau soleil say it shamefully
don’t waste the day i’m what you came to see

summertime is closing in, find your love and your money
i wonder why you’re posing in the wind, do your part now honey
undefined and spoken with a grin, lick your lips start running
bump and grind and choke him from within, from the heart now sonny

i know its warm but try to cop a breeze
i know you’re worn but try to lock your knees
i know you’re sworn but try to knock the tease
i know you’re torn but try to talk to me
ah stop now look at those tangerines
watch now look at ‘em glance and gleam
be sneaky now sugar don’t go to close
nice and easy now throw your pose

bambi
she got no distractions and no back pockets
but i got no reactions and no black sockets
she said no transaction baby catwalk it
told him no attraction makes for backtalk shit

summertime is closing in

don’t fight the love baby
don’t fight the feelin
don’t fight the sun baby
don’t fight the healin

summertime is closing in . . .
Track Name: Strayhorn
you were just perfect til i got to know you
til i knew your name
and it was all the same
still got bruises on my knuckles
from the winter time
but i’m fine
i saw shades of orange
and drags of pink
in your photos i think
wish you’d come running with muuuuugen
think you’d like it
if you tried it

i can’t understand why you smoke your cigarettes
and i could never understand why everybody thinks they’re left alone
and maybe someday i can stay where i’m wrong
but i been losing my ears for a good couple years
i think they’re finally gone

just put down some fresh flannel sheets
don’t make a sound i make a mess when i eat
hurry quick there’s no time
take a seat
stir and kick feel my breath at your feet
rub out the goosebumps and find your way home
get all boozed up and cry out i’m mamas only
one time is cheating the next feels weak
but a red cheek beating feels better underneath the clouds
oh baby just tell him out loud

i can’t understand why you smoke your cigarettes
and i could never understand why everybody thinks they’re left alone
and maybe someday i can stay where i’m wrong
but i been losing my ears for a good couple years
i think they’re finally gone

let me get that kink in your neck
let me rub that knot from your chest
let me get a shutup and tell em what’s best
let me get a sorry i’ll tell my brother the rest
let me get that kink in your neck
let me rub that knot from your chest
let me get a shutup and tell em what’s best
[BAMBI] lemme get my boogie while i fuck up the rest

and now i understand why you smoke your cigarettes
and now i understand how i always made you feel like you’re left alone
and maybe someday imma see when i’m wrong
i been losing my ears for a good couple years i think they’re finally gone
and now i understand why you smoke your cigarettes
and now i understand how i always made you feel like you’re left alone
and maybe someday imma stay where i’m wrong
i been losing my ears for a good couple years they must be gone by now
Track Name: High Life [feat. Hannah Guzmán]
pick my petals up off the ground
gotta secret in the catacombs
and i'm a wretched savior
but your peeking through a battered womb,
drink your metal and cough it down
its so easy when you're runnin smooth
ever seen my hand so steady?
you're so peachy when you're unenthused

you got three lines left
just finish your story
and its a free mindset
keep sippin your glory
you got three lines left
just finish your story
and its a free mindset
keep sippin your glory

keepkeepkeep
keep livin the high life
keep livin the high life with me
keep livin the high life
keep livin the high life with me

[bini]
don't be scared baby
just come with me
come on baby
come live the high life with me

[hannah]
bean bag chic hits harder than you think
its a huff and a puff away
and baby you look to elegant beggin at the sink
could you keep your shrug on display?
come on and SMILE for me
it's not so easy not so soothing without the power
it's all in style can't you see?
it's not so breezy not so proving without your flour

baby we gon have bad dreams tonight for sure
but that doesn't have to mean it's been done before
just tip me left and right, leave me unspun leave me unpure
i'm sinkin west and bright can anyone find a cure?

keep livin the high life with me
keep livin the high life
keep livin the high life with me
keep livin the high life
oohhh baby keep on livin with me
keep livin the high life
keep livin the high life with me
keep livin the high life
keep livin the high life with me

don't be scared baby
just come with
come on baby
come live the high life with me
it's so pretty over here
look at these lights
look at all these pretty smiles
look at all this sunshine
Track Name: Sunshine
this is harder for me
than all my ruckus makes it out to be
makes it out to be
but i think if i ever told you
what was in my back pocket
it’d send you runnin and i wonder
if you’re having trouble too
cause to me this is more than just kissin you
but its nothin out of the blue
just makin old habits new

your fuckin smile snuck under my ribs
but i never felt it break the skin
never felt your teeth rake in
now its stuck awhile and you’re with him
i bet he doesn’t let you under his chin
doesn’t know where the fuck you’ve been

wipe my shirt dry and kiss me on the nose
i keep begging you to cry but i hate seeing it up close
think its bout time i cut my hair
but i’ll try not to interfere with what you think is fair
show me your poems your fountain of letters
and i’ll sit and listen
while you tell me which one you think is better
i could be mistaken my love
after you shared my sheets
but i wouldn’t hold out my glove if i didn’t dare to meet

your fuckin smile snuck under my ribs
but i never felt it break the skin
never felt your teeth rake in
now its stuck awhile and you’re with him
i bet he doesn’t let you under his chin
doesn’t know where the fuck you’ve been

suppose i’ll have to wait for the summertime
spot you by the ocean on the 4th of july
suppose i’ll have to wait for the summertime
spot you by the ocean on the 4th of july . . .
Track Name: Taxi [feat. Bambi]
take me to the taxi
don’t call no uber driver
i’ll sit you in the backseat
and set your noose on fire
don’t tell me where he’s goin
don’t tell me what he buys her
i’ll bring my brother’s clone in
if you tell me which one’s nicer

BAMBI
i’m only so high off the ground
a lonely afterthought around your neck
but i’m so pretty
i wait until nightfall to drown
to keep your holy battle crown in check
but you’re so giddy

tip the fancy drummer
don’t use my shiny shoes
and flip the chance of summer
but always walk in twos
tell Matilda no
stop patching up your scarf
oo spelled to fill the role
she read one letter too far

BAMBI
i’m only so high off the ground
a lonely afterthought around your neck
but i’m so pretty
i wait until nightfall to drown
to keep your holy battle crown in check
but you’re so giddy

i’m one to tidy up and hear just what you’ve said
but i’m not too quick to understand what’s in your head
time to split to candyland and find my gingerbread
now watch me click my heels and hang your troubles from a thread

BAMBI
i’m only so high off the ground
a lonely afterthought around your neck
but i’m so pretty
i wait until nightfall to drown
to keep your holy battle crown in check
but you’re so giddy . . .
Track Name: Oh! Frenchy
slip your Tens on baby walk me to my room
let you sins run on me fuck me to my tomb
he knows where you been maybe not the one to groom
run and gun a fever based on what you assume,
he found your faults on the tip of my tongue
ground with salt you're a little high strung
drowned in malt you're a little too young
but your bound to default til ya feel it in ya lungs

brush your teeth before you come to bed darlin you're not all alone
hush your fears before they stick to your breath and leave you on your own
wash your feet before you come to bed darlin you're not all alone
flush your cheeks before he sticks to your breath and leaves you on your own

let yourself breathe and listen what i wrote
bet your felt knees gon buckle til they croak
said you need help, squeeze knuckles round your throat
i'm indebted to your guillotine leopard skin coat,
curve in the mirror glass keep me lookin SLIM
slurred to a liquor pass, cackle to a grin
blurred by your liver, couldn't tattle where you'd been
heard a little clearer, had to pray it wasn't him

brush your teeth before you come to bed darlin you're not all alone
hush your fears before they stick to your breath and leave you on your own
wash your feet before you come to bed darlin you're not all alone
flush your cheeks before he sticks to your breath and leaves you on your own

one too many times isn't enough for me
is it fun to watch me climb out of the rough for free?
begun from broke design tethered with scotch to the tee
overdone and over dry just call in my bluff and count to three

brush your teeth before you come to bed darlin you're not all alone
hush your fears before they stick to your breath and leave you on your own
wash your feet before you come to bed darlin you're not all alone
flush your cheeks before he sticks to your breath and leaves you on your own . . .
Track Name: Lemon-Aid/Pinocchio [feat. Bambi]
i’m happy you’re not forcing it
happy its a breeze
happy you’re not forfeiting
happy you’re grieving with ease
i’m only sappy in the morning light
i’m only waiting for the doves
i’m only snappy when i feel your bite
hope the clock reminds you we’re in love

look at our smitten beaches fade
while you sip your lemonade
you got me sitting in the shade
at the tip of your blade
you got me mopping the acrylic
from the mess that you made
you got me scraping up my braces
with this professional grade toothpaste
and its only been two days
but i could think of a few ways
that this coulda gone smoother
a few belongings you coulda coulda scooped up
a few mysteries you ain’t have to spew up
a few recipes you didn’t have to brew up
but its all good we all screwed up
i’ll never hold it against you

i could feel my hands turn to leather
my friends turn to feathers in the wind
ones still stickin around think they clever
hows the weather where you been

now there ain’t nothin you could trust about a moonlit cloud
about the way he walk in and how the dude sit down now
pull it from my throat lemme stutter out loud
but it ain't the right time now lemme flutter down town
now where's my motherfuckin jiminy
my nose too long to fit down the fucking chimney
geppetto why you make me manipulate so soft and timidly
nah enough of all this gimmickry it's time for y'all to mimick me

now don't ya know that pride taste good if you're feedin yourself
if you're made of pine wood and hang ya feet off the shelf
the wise teletubby toy told me not to decieve
so imma stay a grubby boy and wear my cock on my sleeve
yeah follow me i'll take ya where you think you wanna be
but then you gon see that everything exactly how it seems
and you been starin at the sun while i'm peekin through the seams
while you layin in ya bunk i been sneakin through your dreams
don’t ya know?

bambi
don't ya know that pride taste good with a little whipped cream
and a cherry on top like some sorta sick dream
that I been havin for a while til she came and picked me
and she order up a smile with a dick that ain't free on the side
she look me in my eye while she suckin on her lollipop
and matty in the sky while he tryna fuck the molly pops
tryna make a night of it tryna hop the train
he just tryna get that fried egg tryna get the brain
cause we all just lookin for the same thing
tryna have a time play the same game
now I'm dancin in the fire when my feet are getting tired
and my pants getting tighter when I'm feeling like a liar
Track Name: Roll Up [feat. Bambi & Scooby Bloo]
bambi
ah roll up the rug baby
slip the rubber band around my wrist
and throw up ya shrug baby
don't ask for me don't ask for this

nah it's too late to fuck baby
just stick the hug and check the list
there's only two ways to love baby
i'll pass the dream you pass the fix

but shake it to the moon, don't you take me in stride
and make him talk smooth, don't you give him the time
you merit the truth, another better than mine
i never meant to fool, but its easy to hide my neck
and spare my eyes
just to drive by flex and share my prize
rockin blind safe sex til the day that i die
gotta find what's left but
you can't shake my pride
you can't shake my pride

pride tastes good til you swallow it whole
now a line traced fuckin might be ya best roll
I was fine til you told me i should probably go
but i'm good at lookin melancholy and doin as told
yeah i'm good at lookin sloppy with a spoon and a bowl
yeah i'm good at lookin naughty in my puma gum soles
yeah i'm good at hookin hotties tween a fool and a fold
if i should or i shouldn't ain't no rules for gettin cold
god damn yeh i use it in vain
he ain't listenin in there ain't no mind he's payin
youre so good at actin' like you could use what i'm sayin
but you can't hear a damn thing when you pukin' champagne
its time to rollup rollup rollup rollup

SCOOBY-BLOO
back track and fortify the goodness and listen real
closely now most of this shit is spoon fed to keep you still
boast if you reachin at
the low shit beneath couch
an ocean thats beachin up
the change from ya pocket now ya
got robbed from the bend in ya hips
dont talk put a pin in ya lips
drop top not a cieling that drips
fuck off with the food dont tip
the patience is waiting for the love
nah forget that she just rubbed
with a wet napkin and scrubbed right down til the heart got ripped
Uh
tryna get a little bit tipped
improv i aint gotta read from the script
ten five fuck ten four good buddy
add one more to the score nobody
gotta act like it fuck
ya master it yuh
like after this one
i'll pass the hit up
but now im swimmin up the rio dios mios
the real always nippin at my heels
tryna peel back reveal that that isnt
steal from that wishin well
i kill to be risen from the pill poppin prison
Track Name: Marilyn
well she walks with a lisp and she talks with a sway
i wonder if i’ll ever figure out someday
how to wrap her in my fingertips and fly her far away
watch her lashes flutter when she finds a place to stay
ask her what you might and she’ll tell ya what ya may
i figure it’s another method just another way
to tie a handsome bow around what else she wants to say
and tip toe past the water to the steeple of the bay

but she don’t really need my help
i just hope that she enjoys my company
she was always gonna save herself
i keep thinking that she does but she don’t need me

sleep soft baby
sleep soft
and just tell me which way to run
sleep soft baby
sleep soft
and just tell me which way to point my gun
mmm

i wanna knock out the teeth of every single boy she meets
just to make sure they know that she’s stronger than me
i wanna hug her from behind 100 million times
til she forgets about the index fingers and the slime
until she forgets where she came from
and leaves me with the pillow and my frame numb
until she forgets where she came from
but she ain’t ever gone forget where the pain comes from

and maybe she don’t wanna forget
she told me she ain’t ever had a single regret
and maybe any many that’s ever fuckin wronged her
has only ever made her fuckin stronger

maybe any man that’s ever fuckin wronged her
has only ever made her fuckin stronger . . .
Track Name: Three-Prong Sing-Along [feat. Bambi]
honey now its time to wake up
its sunny turn the flurry to slush
runnin from the tip of your tongue
bloody when you sip and don’t brush
now spit it out don’t make me ache
twist and shout don’t sway the pain
trick the bow don’t clip the breaks
tip the doubt ’til we weigh the same

we’re just a three prong sing along
baby now state your wrongs, state your wrongs
and don’t you sleep on the silicone
fake ain’t fake for long, fake for long
talk ain’t cheap on the telephone
gotta stay safe or strong, safe or strong
we’re just a three prong sing along
baby don’t stay too long, stay too long

do you remember where you been last night?
or he gon’ tell me in one month’s time?
that’s a fun little secret y’all got what a lovely surprise
but give up the skinny now look at me and tell me what’s right
tell me what’s right
now dig in hard don’t dip your gaze
finish or start it all feels the same
livin apart ain’t skippin the maze
the kick in your heart ain’t the beat to blame

we’re just a three prong sing along
baby now state your wrongs, state your wrongs
and don’t you sleep on the silicone
fake ain’t fake for long, fake for long
talk ain’t cheap on the telephone
gotta stay safe or strong, safe or strong
we’re just a three prong sing along
baby don’t stay too long, stay too long

Oyo! Oyo! someone pokin at your nose
lookin at you stumblin and steppin on your toes
they only so-so but he supposed to impose
get ya on ya mumble let ya overexpose
but it ain’t all manipulation, not enough to subdue
leave him stickin in your pocket semi-golden residue
meet me drippin from the faucet with your stolen tennis shoes
then we mosie to the closet and lock it now back to you

no no no three times enough
let her go she ain’t tryna fuck
dig her hole watch her climb and huff
but you don’t know she bout to prime you up . . .

Track Name: Gingerbread
pick the splinters from my hair
light the fire
split the winter if its fair
if its lighter
stick my fingers everywhere
your pulse is tired
stitches linger in my prayer
but you're lookin higher

and its not an easy one to tell when you're near
forgotten briefly til the swell throws me clear
imposter weekly clientele another year
another cell another fuck you mind sincere

well its a cute little gingerbread house if you're on the outside
its no use til you let your fingers spread round the grease implied
my excuse and my ringer don't step with my shiver in stride
smile and seduce til i'm thoroughbred scum and my trigger thinks twice

its just the taste of lemonlime on your kiss
smells like innocence
its just a waste of fuckin wine on her lips
but she can't tell the difference
pay six months on a dime to caper around
til she's found her sense
play tricks once at a time
taper her down
claim it your crowned expense

but its not an easy one to tell when you're near
forgotten briefly til the swell throws me clear
imposter weekly clientele another year
another cell another fuck you mind sincere

well its a cute little gingerbread house if you're on the outside
its no use til you let your fingers spread round the grease implied
my excuse and my ringer don't step with my shiver in stride
smile and seduce til i'm thoroughbred scum and my trigger thinks twice

its no black and white its full color
don't you see with your eyes?
its not just me and my brother
just the seas and the skies
its not one way or the other
can't you compromise?
not my ashtray or your lover
just your tears and your cries
Track Name: Clementine (Ain't No Clean)
