Everything written, recorded, mixed, etc. by Benji except:

Track 1: Trumpet written and performed by Emmanuel Echem
(I edited multiple takes together and made it into a backward mess near the beginning so I apologize if Emmanuel is less than pleased with these creative liberties)
Track 6: Backing vocals performed by Dutch Nethercutt

Recorded at the highly innovative Danger Zone Studios (wherever I happen to be when I make music)
Thanks to all my friends and family who gave me ideas or inspired me by making other awesome music or bothered to listen to things I've made.

Track Name: Easy Does It
With amphibious thoughts
You can hardly find out
What you thought you had heard
Or what you thought you had known

With miscellaneous thoughts
That can't escape their revolutions
It's hard to remember to go easy

Don't you dare slither away
Pick up the pieces of an empty glass
You couldn't have it any other way
You couldn't be convinced

Don't you dare slither away
Pick up the pieces of a glass once full
I don't have much for you to believe
I only hope that you go easy on me

Go easy
The world is hard enough
Believe me
Keep the fashion
Keep the peace
Track Name: All Wrong
Climb inside my head
And lose your sense of direction
Spin around, leave the ground
Lose your identity in your reflection

Climb inside my eyes
And see what I do

You're looking at me all wrong
(Turn away, turn away from me
Control yourself or control me)
Track Name: Newborn
Darling
Could you stay with me
And talk to me just like a newborn
Darling
could you stay with me
And care for me just like a newborn

It's not fair
to be in my spot
I'm sweating all over and it just won't stop
It's not fair
to be in my place
I'm sweating all over and I can't keep up the pace

Nothing is sacred anymore
We took that privilege away
Nothing is sacred anymore
No, it's not

Darling
Could you stay with me
And kiss on me just like a newborn
Darling
Could you stay with me
I need your touch just like a newborn

It's not fair
to be in my spot
I'm sweating all over and it just won't stop
It's not fair
to be in my place
I'm sweating all over but I'm speeding up the pace

Nothing is sacred anymore
We took that privilege away
Nothing is sacred anymore
No, it's not
Track Name: Give Me the Boogie
My body keeps moving
Until I can't breathe anymore
I got these shackles around my ankles
I'm a slave to the boogie

My body's got a mind of its own
I've given up control
I got these shackles around my wrists
I'm a slave to the boogie

I can't sleep at night
My feet tappin'
Mind's all around
And I'm thinking only all about the boogie
(Boogie woogie)

I miss my movement
It's only been an hour
But I can't get along without the boogie
(Boogie)

I'm fiendin'
Touch me with the boogie
(Boogie woogie)

Oh baby
Give me, give me the boogie
Track Name: I Made a Mess
I made a mess of this
I don't know what I did
But I made a mess of this
I made a mess of this

I really dropped the ball
I really shit the bed
I made a mess of this
I made a mess of this

I sure went up in smoke
I really screwed the pooch
I made a mess of this
I made a mess of this

I found a way to goof
I really got it twisted
I made a mess of this
I made a mess of this

I really missed my cue
I caused quite the snafu
I made a mess
I made a mess

I really dropped the ball (shit the bed)
I sure went up in smoke (screwed the pooch)
I made a mess of this
I made a mess of this

I really shit the bed (dropped the ball)
I really screwed the pooch (up in smoke)
I made a mess of this
I made a mess of this
Track Name: Today's Fashion
Do you want my seconds
Are they good enough
You're a little bit reckless
But that's good enough

Do you think that you're special
Do you think that you're new

Do you think that you're special
Do you think that you're new
Say hello to the vessel
That is carrying you

Do you think that you're special
Do you think that you're new
Yeah, we've all got potential
But especially you
Track Name: It's Not So Bad
It's not so bad
If you ignore what you can
It'll leave you eventually
It'll leave you alone

It's not so bad to have some time on your own
This'll leave you eventually

But I can't picture how it used to be
I guess it left me behind
But I can't picture how it used to be
I guess we left that behind

And it's not so bad anymore
There's more than one way to live
It's not so bad anymore
Track Name: I Haven't Been Myself
I have to admit
I haven't been myself
It's hard when you're trapped in your mind
I haven't been myself

Forgive me
I'm spacey
I'm working against me
Give me a little more time

I'll make it up to everyone
I just need a little more time

Forgive me
I'm selfish
I'm working relentlessly
It's hard when you're trapped in your mind

I'll make it up to everyone
I just need a little more time
