Kevin’s art of self-deprecation and redemption - “The Science of Letting On” - is a poetic and sonic amalgamation of Beat, Punk, Pop Art, Gonzo Journalism, Shoegaze and Grunge. ... more

Sweat-Suit

can’t you see i must keep workin’ out

& i dont need - i dont need to run
i just need to have me some fun
this might be – this might be the one i just need
yeah, i don’t need to run (go!)

it’s happening – i'm good & ready
just don’t push me, my friend
if i say i won’t
then it must mean i really won’t

& i don’t need - i don’t need to run
i just need to have me some fun
this might be – this might be the one i just need
to have me some fun – no, i don’t need to run

i've been so lost but now i find
a truth that now blows my mind
i’m the first to leave but the last to say good-bye

& i don’t need - i don’t need to run
i just need to have me some fun
this might be – yeah, this might be the one i just need
to have me some fun

& i don’t need - i don’t need to run
i just need to have me some fun
this might be – this might be the one i just need
yeah, i don’t need to run (go!)

la la la la (go!)
Track Name: All My Friends R-17
All My Friends R-17

i found myself in the ghetto of a zoo
in the local indie scene
with mermaids & monkeys who don’t have a clue
what’s in Q magazine

you can spot ‘em a mile away
with sailor tattoo sleeves
ball-chain idols & small-brain ideals
x-box & mp3s

oh yeah but then all my friends are 17
ain’t no sense to what they mean
everyone’s a pedro fiend
all my friends

i know if were back in high school
among the wanna-bes
i'd feel different if has-been were cool
& clueless was a disease

again but then all my friends are 17
ain't no sense to what they mean
everyone’s a pedro fiend
all my friends

some of us may come out winners
& some of us may come out losers
but all us start out as posers at 17
(please buy my new cd!)

all my friends are 17
ain’t no sense to what they mean
everyone’s a pedro fiend
ain’t no sense to what they mean
all is chill in the scene
with all my friends
Track Name: Over-Rated PG-13
Over-Rated PG-13

i'm the soul you seek for inspiration
i'm the token spirit in your art
i'm the patron saint of three dimensions
i'm the song that croons within your heart

if you could climb inside my head
then you would see you’re over-rated
every time someone said
if it were me she’s over-rated

i'm the voice that speaks when you’re not listening
i'm the sound of silence in you’re talk
i'm the void you fill when something’s missing
i'm the ground beneath you when you walk

if you could climb inside my head
then you would see you're over-rated
every time someone said
if it were me she’s over-rated

understated, complicated, so frustrated, soon out-dated,
intoxicated, exaggerated, fabricated, over-rated

i'm the ghost that stirs when you’re still sleeping
i'm the dream that sleeps when you’re awake
i'm the love you wound that’s ever weeping
i'm the bruise that bleeds when your heart breaks

if you could climb inside my head
then you would see you’re over-rated
every time someone said
if it were me she’s over-rated

you’re over-rated

understated, complicated, so frustrated, over-rated
intoxicated, exaggerated, fabricated, she’s over-rated

you’re over-rated
Track Name: Flipped Her Wigg
Flipped Her Wigg

i know what you’re gonna say
why she can’t come out & play
wait until a sunny day
i wish that you’d just go away
(boo hoo hoo)

why she always bring me down
turn my smile into a frown
make me out to be the clown
at the altar in the wedding gown
(boo hoo hoo)

i don’t know what she wants from me

she flipped her wigg again
she flipped her wigg again
(boo hoo) she flipped her wigg again
she flipped her wigg

it’s only natural truly factual
barely laughable oh so yeah (go!)

she flipped her wigg again
she flipped her wigg again
(boo hoo) she flipped her wigg again
she flipped her wigg

she flipped her wigg
Track Name: Cliffs-Notes Version
Cliffs-Notes Version

i can picture you in black & white
draining every color of it’s light
taunting memory of this static year
haunting every whisper every fear

i can feel it like a heart attack
that you could steal it right behind my back
you could hurt me even though i'm strong
you could heal me when you know i'm wrong

i've been perfected by you without cause
i'm enraptured even with your flaws
you’re the her that i've been living in
if not my sister maybe then her twin

like the brother that you never had
unlike the other loves - just a fad
you would marry me if you could see
i could bury you inside of me

i can read you like a book (oho)
i can read you like a book (oho)
i can read you like a book (oho)
i can read you like a book

i'm the stranger standing in your midst
you’re the danger that is worth the risk
i'm the tension turning in the drum
you’re as constant as a hum

you could scold me like a little child
you could hold me though i'm feral wild
you could tame me with a single look
who could blame me that i'm as open

you can read me like a book (oho)
you can read me like a book (oho)
you can read me like a book (oho)
you can read me like a book

i can read you like a book (oho)
i can read you like a book (oho)
i can read you like a book (oho)
i can read you like a book
Track Name: New Year's Eve
New Year’s Eve

there’s traffic on the street
its like a demonstration (ohohoh)
be careful who meet
with so many temptations (ohohoh)

its louder than whisper
but softer than a scream
its popping like a blister
and waking like a dream

it was something in the way you say, hey, lets rock n roll!
it was something in the way you say, hey, lets rock n roll!

it's another new years eve
with new year’s resolutions (ohohoh)
its easy to believe
in backyard revolutions (ohohoh)

i'm thinking kinda maybe
why can’t you understand
i'm blushing like a baby
you’re hushing with your hand

it was something in the way you say, hey, lets rock n roll!
it was something in the way you say, hey, lets rock n roll!
it was something in the way you say, hey, lets rock n roll!
it was something in the way you say, hey, lets rock n roll!
it was something in the way you say, hey!
Track Name: Blush
Blush

you couldn’t give it a chance
so you started a rumor
i don’t care about the money
i'm just afraid you have no shame

somebody give her some room
you can drink all my coffee
& you can think i'll take the blame

blush (you never) blush
blush (you never) blush

blush (you never) blush
blush (you never) blush

Track Name: Foam-Finger
Foam-Finger

i won’t forget you
you were my #1
the night at the venue
breaking up wasn’t fun

there’s nothing left for you to say
it’s easier to walk away
there’s nothing left for me to do
but deep within my heart it’s true

i swear i care a lot - a lot - a lot

i was your cheerleader
but with no one to entertain
i wave my foam-finger
as padding to ease the pain

there’s nothing left for you to say
it’s easier to walk away
there’s nothing left for me to do
but deep within my heart its true

i swear i care a lot - a lot - a lot
i swear i care a lot - a lot - a lot

i swear i care a lot - a lot - a lot
i swear i care a lot - a lot - a lot

i swear i care a lot

Track Name: Atmosphere
Atmosphere

looking back too many years
just a waste of times
clouding up the atmosphere
with soundless senseless rhymes

will you listen to me
as i listen to you
will you listen to me
as i listen to everyone

(hum)

stars are not as they appear
to the deaf dumb lame & blind
static cues the engineer
you can’t go back & rewind

will you listen to me
as i listen to you
will you listen to me
as i listen to everyone
everyone
everyone but me

(ooh)
Track Name: Sour Milk
Sour Milk

it’s somethin special
when all i need is everything
it’s somethin just to know you

it’s so abnormal
to meet a girl who has a clue
it’s somethin just to know you

all my years of holding on to the past
all my fears of coming out new

it’s somethin special
to stick with me through everything
it’s somethin special how you love me

it’s so informal
to be the boy one shade of blue
it’s something special just to know you

all my years of holding on to the past
all my fears of coming out new

cause now all my milk is sour
all my milk is sour
all my milk is sour
all my milk is

now all my milk is sour
all my milk is sour
all my milk is sour
all my milk is sour
… but now is not forever
… but now is not forever
… but now is not forever
… but now is not forever
