Barry Lausmann Love this album. To me it has a BRMC vibe to it, but more garagey and spirited. unreal this is a one man band. Title is perfect, because it'll sound great with the top and doors of the Jeep just cruisin' around. Favorite track: Run Like Hell.

Track Name: God Only Knows
Oh! You're just another
Another goddamn fairweather lover
Another late night heartbreak on demand
God only knows what the hell I was thinking when I letcha take ahold of my hand

La la la la
Hey-ey-ey-ey
You said you wanted some action
I think you want a reaction
La la la la
Hey-ey-ey-ey
You said you wanted some action
You said you wanted some action

Always right for all the wrong reasons
Always dressing for all the wrong seasons
Never really made sense to me anyway
God only knows what the hell I was thinking, but goddammit I'm gettin' away

La la la la
Hey-ey-ey-ey
You said you wanted some action
I think you want a reaction
La la la la
Hey-ey-ey-ey
You said you wanted some action
You said you wanted some action

La la la la
Hey-ey-ey-ey
You said you wanted some action
I think you want a reaction
La la la la
Hey-ey-ey-ey
You said you wanted some action
You said you wanted some action
Track Name: Boardwalkin'
Hey baby, let's go down to the ocean
Santa Monica is in my veins
We'll get stoned and we'll find us some action
Hit the pier and get lost in the haze
(Get lost in the haze)

Tonight we're gonna go boardwalkin'
Sundown and there ain't no stoppin'
'Til sunlight 'cause we'll never get enough
No, we'll never get enough
Hey hey, yeah

Hey baby, let's start a little fire
On the beach while we listen to Wavves
Under the pier we can get a little higher
Make love 'til the break of day
('Til the break of day, 'til the break of day)

Tonight we're gonna go boardwalkin'
Sundown and there ain't no stoppin'
'Til sunlight 'cause we'll never get enough
No, we'll never get enough
Hey hey, yeah
Tonight we're gonna go boardwalkin'
Sundown and there ain't no stoppin'
'Til sunlight 'cause we'll never get enough
No, we'll never get enough
Hey hey, yeah
Hey hey, yeah
Hey hey, yeah
Hey hey, yeah
Track Name: La Dolce Vita
I'm washed out and China white
You know my makeup cost me $10.95
The right taste at the wrong time
Oh baby it'll make you lose your mind

Come a little bit closer and you know that I'll bite
I know you're here for a rush, you know I got what you like

Get off, all in
It ain't livin' if there ain't a little sin
So get on, and get lit
You want it, whatcha gonna do about it?

Top down, midnight
Clear skies but we ain't stayin' dry
V8 thrill ride
Put me in top gear when you pulled me inside

Come a little bit closer and you know that I'll bite
I know you're here for a rush, you know I got what you like

Get off, all in
It ain't livin' if there ain't a little sin
So get on, and get lit
You want it, whatcha gonna do about it?

Get off, all in
It ain't livin' if there ain't a little sin
So get on, and get lit
You want it, whatcha gonna do about it?
Track Name: Cruise Controller
Top down through the desert tonight
I got Parliaments aburnin' if you need a light
Charmed is the man who lives as he likes
You may say I'm evil, yeah I got a few vices
Idle hands play the devil's games
But I don't ever stand still and I'm not one to be tamed
I hit the Interstate to clear my mind
I feel like burnin' petrol 'til I see the first light

Talk is cheap but you're strapped all the same
You burn your bridges, I'll light up off the flames
You say realistic but you mean uninspired
Caught fear of pleasure just to quell your desires
Ooo~ooo~, I'm feelin' alive
¿Como se dice estoy cazando al redline?

Cruise controller
Siempre soñado de la vida's sabor
Cruise controller
Santa Muerte, cuidame por favor

Is this the life or just a mirage?
My HEMI's got 470, I challenge it all
Do what I want, you just do what you're told
Caught chromesthesia and the feeling is golden
Sixes and sevens, what I'm on about
Or so you say but you're still comin' around
Say what you will 'cause I won't be around
You know I brought the rain to your emotional drought

Talk is cheap but you're strapped all the same
You burn your bridges, I'll light up off the flames
You say realistic but you mean uninspired
Caught fear of pleasure just to quell your desires
Ooo~ooo~, I'm feelin' alive
¿Como se dice he pasado el redline?

Cruise controller
Siempre soñado de la vida's sabor
Cruise controller
Santa Muerte, cuidame por favor
Track Name: 21 Questions
I got 21 questions and they're all unanswered
What's it gonna take to get your words out faster?
What's it gonna take to getcha off tonight?
Why'd you waste all your bullets on me?
You'd better pray damn well 'cause I ain't goin' easy
What'd I ever do to make you take me for the dying type?
You're only here to be seen
With your pre-fab personality
It don't really mean much to me 'cause you ain't ever gonna get me down on my knees

No one here's gonna win, but baby try as you please
For me

Whoa~whoa, do you feel it?
Do you feel it in the back of your mind?
Whoa~whoa, do you feel it?
Do you feel it comin' for you tonight?

You're a whole lotta talk without a damn thing to say
Not to say you ever really gave a f*** anyway
Summertime looks, wintertime cold
Tell yourself you got a grip but there ain't nothin' to hold
And life keeps callin' you but you ain't ever listenin'
If you're gonna feign innocence then you'd better hope that you can work off your sins

No one here's gonna win, but baby try as you please
For me

Whoa~whoa, do you feel it?
Do you feel it in the back of your mind?
Whoa~whoa, do you feel it?
Do you feel it comin' for you tonight?
Whoa~whoa~
Whoa~whoa~
Whoa~whoa~
Whoa~whoa~
Track Name: Better Off in L.A.
The only way up is west, I been told
Playin' rock n' roll and mining Acapulco Gold
Sorry baby, I ain't stayin' the night
I know we had our little ride, but it'll be alright, yeah
You shoulda known I never really been the settle in type

You know I'm better off in LA
(Better off in LA)
I know you're better off anyway
(Better off, you're better off, you're better off)
Sorry baby, there ain't nothin' to say
I got the desert waitin' for me and it's nearly break of day
I love ya baby, but I know I'm better off in LA

Honey, you know that I hate to be cold
But there's nothin' left to hold here, I already sold my soul, yeah
You know there ain't no savin' me
Ain't no rest for the wicked, they say
Ain't no rest for me, I wouldn't have no other way, no
You're sweet, sugar, but I stayed as long as I could stay

You know I'm better off in LA
(Better off in LA)
I know you're better off anyway
(Better off, you're better off, you're better off)
Sorry baby, there ain't nothin' to say
I got the desert waitin' for me and it's nearly break of day
I love ya baby, but I know I'm better off in LA

Better off in LA
(Better off in LA)
I'm better off in LA
(Better off in LA)
I'm better off in LA
(Better off in LA)
I'm better off in LA
(Better off in LA)
(Better off, I'm better off, I'm better off, I'm better-)

You know I'm better off in LA
(Better off in LA)
I know you're better off anyway
(Better off, you're better off, you're better off)
Sorry baby, there ain't nothin' to say
I got the desert waitin' for me and it's nearly break of day
I love ya baby, but I know I'm better off in LA
Track Name: Run Like Hell
Sun's goin' down on the edge of town
But we ain't got time for hangin' around in the light
Fallen angel hot on our trail
Lord knows Heaven couldn't save us tonight

God couldn't save us tonight

Well it's a luna llena, sugar
Won't you catch me if you can?
Mira en mís ojos rojos
I'm your devil on demand
But when you hear those hounds acomin', better run like hell
If you wanna see tomorrow with your story to tell

Run like hell

There's nowhere left to run to
The night is gonna crush you
There's nowhere left to run to
The night is gonna crush you
There's nowhere left to run to
The night is gonna crush you

(走ってくれ。一、二、三、四)

Run, run
Run, run
Run, run
Run, run
Track Name: Witch in White
Don't let your memories deceive you
You don't really know me like you think you do
Dressed all in white I stand before you
Twenty long years I've been hidden away

(I~I'm the witch in white, and I'm comin' alive)

It's all an illusion, now what do you see?
Sorceress in the mirror gazing back at me
She knows who she is, so she don't get much sleep
I've been paralyzed but I deserve to be free

(I~I'm the witch in white, and I'm comin' alive)

From my pain I've learned and for my faith I've leapt
Thrown down my veil, fought the demons I kept
And while you never prepare for what you couldn't expect
I just pray to God that you can learn to accept
And I pray like hell that you will love me no less
My heart's racing
Scared to death
My God told me
Life comes next
