Track Name: Topanga
Her name is Topanga
And to her I'm a stranger
But my whole generation
Calls her a sensation
I'm just a boy in this world
Wanting her to be my girl

Topanga
Topanga

She is the girl next door
We boys all adore
She consumes imaginations
Cause her lips are amazing
I'm just a boy in this world
Wanting her to be my girl

Topanga
Topanga

Her name is Topanga
And to her I'm a stranger
But my whole generation
Calls her a sensation
I'm just a boy in this world
Wanting her to be my girl
I'm just a boy in this world
Wanting her to be my girl

Track Name: Last Night
Tonight I want to do it again oh yeah
The memory's still fresh in my head
The taste lingers on the tip of my tongue nah nah
And I admit that it was so much fun
To be inside of you

Last night was so incredible
Everything we did was uncontrollable
Tonight I'm thinking of you
Twenty-four hours later I still smell you
On me

So this is how it feels to be like a king
Finding glitter on everything
The Midas touch of your face
Fuck yeah I feel great

Last night was so incredible
Everything we did was uncontrollable
Tonight I'm thinking of you
Twenty-four hours later I still smell you
On me
Track Name: Red Handed
I try to be quick like 1, 2, 3
Dumb it down like A, B, C
Don't want you to see through me
How it don't mean much to me
Oh, oh, 1, 2, 3
Oh, oh, A, B, C
Oh, oh, see through me
Oh, oh

You caught me red handed
You caught me red handed
I'm a wet bandit
You caught me red handed
And I can't stand it

I told you I did it out of love
How I look like some kind of
Frankenstein and you're my bride
I'm a two faced gemini
Oh, oh, 1, 2, 3
Oh, oh, A, B, C
Oh, oh, see through me
Oh, oh

You caught me red handed
You caught me red handed
I'm a wet bandit
You caught me red handed
And I can't stand it

Oh, oh, 1, 2, 3
Oh, oh, A, B, C
Oh, oh, see through me
Oh, oh

You caught me red handed
You caught me red handed
I'm a wet bandit
You caught me red handed
And I can't stand it
Red handed
Sticky bandit
You caught me red handed
You caught me red handed
You caught me red handed
I'm a wet bandit
You caught me red handed
And I can't stand it
Track Name: Judgement Day
We've got all these rules
Growing like weeds
Finger pointing
Its like a disease
Kinda like a game
No matter your beliefs
People think they're above
And you're beneath

Oh my God
Did you hear what he said
He needs to find Jesus
Oh my word
He's got some kind of nerve
And deserves what's coming, coming

Come on lets have some fun
And make some stupid mistakes
I don't care what's wrong and what's right
I never feel ashamed
You don't own the sky
You don't own this land
Who are you to criticize who I am
So waste your breath away
I don't believe in judgement day

Where do you get off
On casting your displease
Just cause the things I love
You don't agree
And how absurd it is
When we don't eat your feed
You say all is damned
In society

Oh my God
Did you hear what he said
He needs to find Jesus
Oh my word
He's got some kind of nerve
And deserves what's coming, coming

Come on lets have some fun
And make some stupid mistakes
I don't care what's wrong and what's right
I never feel ashamed
You don't own the sky
You don't own this land
Who are you to criticize who I am
So waste your breath away
I don't believe in judgement day

Come on lets have some fun
And make some stupid mistakes
I don't care what's wrong and what's right
I never feel ashamed
You don't own the sky
You don't own this land
Who are you to criticize who I am
So waste your breath away
I don't believe in judgement day
Judgement day
I don't believe in
No I don't believe in
No I don't believe in
I don't believe in
No I don't believe in
No I don't believe
In your judgement day
Track Name: I Can't Control It
I was feeling alone
So I picked up the phone
And I know you'll be here
Before I say, "Hello"
And when I open the door
My smile you'll ignore
Cause its not part
Of what you're here for
And you'll want nothing more
Uh, uh, uh, uh, uh
Na, na, na, na, na

I can't control it
You're number one
When my body's overheated
You help me cool down
I can't control it
You're number one
When my body's overheated
You help me cool down

I blew off some steam
But there's more that I need
I'd love to talk
But you don't give a fuck
I said that's the end
And if we're not even friends
Than why should I
Continue with this trend
Uh, uh, uh, uh, uh
Na, na, na, na, na

I can't control it
You're number one
When my body's overheated
You help me cool down
I can't control it
You're number one
When my body's overheated
You help me cool down

I feel alone again
But horny and desperate
I can't seem to help it
I give in to the habit
I call you up again
But this time its different
You've found a replacement
And kicked me to the pavement
Uh, uh, uh, uh, uh
Na, na, na, na, na

I can't control it
You're number one
When my body's overheated
You help me cool down
I can't control it
You're number one
When my body's overheated
You help me cool down
I can't control it
You're number one
When my body's overheated
You help me cool down
I can't control it
You're number one
When my body's overheated
You help me cool down
Cool down
Cool down
Cool down
Cool down
Track Name: Not Easy Being Alone
What have I done lately?
What do I do now?
Something stands before me
Keeps me from moving on
Keeps me from moving on
And as the sun chimes over my head
I think about how I've lived instead
And how everything comes and goes

Its not easy being alone
Its not easy being alone
Its not easy being alone
But as long as you love yourself
You're gonna be alright

I tell myself she left me
So I don't feel so bad
And though she cries nightly
It could be worse than that
What could be worse than that?
And as the sun chimes over my head
I think about how I've lived instead
And how everything comes and goes

Its not easy being alone
Its not easy being alone
Its not easy being alone
But as long as you love yourself
You're gonna be alright

Keep your chin up
You're gonna be alright
Keep your chin up
I tell myself every night
Keep your chin up
You're gonna be just fine
Keep your chin up
I tell myself every night

Its not easy being alone
Its not easy being alone
Its not easy being alone
But as long as you love yourself
You're gonna be alright

Keep your chin up
You're gonna be alright
Keep your chin up
I tell myself every night
Keep your chin up
You're gonna be just fine
Keep your chin up
I tell myself every night
