Track Name: SOLID GOLD
man looks at the outside
god looks at the heart
but I'm stuck on the oustide
I ain't got a heart

I am solid gold, I am solid gold
hadn't you heard?

you really got to me
with the sharpness of your teeth
when you bit through my belief
it really got to me

though I am solid gold, I am solid gold
hadn't you heard?

*I got a lust for gold, call it gold lust
searching in the ground for gold dust on golden divas,
guess I'm a gold a believer, the cold sort of the gold collegiate

my face flushed with this gold rush
draped around her neck I seen the gold blush
told her 'hush, let it grow on us, this gold trust'
let's show it off, hands to the sky we're gold going off*

there's a place in my head that goes round and round
like a roulette wheel going round and round
and the ball never / ever falls down
the ball never / ever falls down

I am solid gold

(and if they really knew me, who could ever love me?
not a soul, not a soul, not a soul)

*I got the midas touch, but over time
solid gold starts losing its shine

and now my time is up, I gotta ask
was it nothing but a cold smile on a gold mask*
Track Name: MY NEXT SONG
some songs sing themselves, don't they?
playing on inside of your head
and they keep your heart beating too fast
as you lie alone in your bed

but I wrote some pretty awful songs,
I sang you some pretty terrible ones...

my next song will be really good, I promise
my next song will be so much better than this
my next song will be a hit single with words
that you can sing along to

electricity in my blood
keepeth me up for days
but my internal compass is at a loss
spinning all over the place

so please forgive me baby if I act a little crazy
I'm just trying my best to keep it together

well...

talk slow talk fast talk right talk wrong
talk cheap talk dirty over my next song
