I took at trip down to the ocean So I could state out into the sea I saw you moving like a wave in motion I knew I had to make you dance for me I took a trip and thought I was wrong Turned out I was right I spent my time trying to get a response She spent her time tempting the devil with song (She said) I live for the sea And I have no apologies Any way you want to go I'm game for it just so you know Deb danced from D.C. all the way out to Dallas For crooks and judges, politicians and bouncers They spoke of love she shied away too embarrassed But she took their money and she hired accounts She built that dream home out by the sea Built off compromise, money, and dreams She no longer had to tease Only one more person left to please (She said) I live for the sea And I have no apologies Any way you want to go I'm game for it just so you know It's the fear of waking up And the fear of shaking it off I can tell by the look in your eyes I can tell you're in disguise RIP THE KNOB OFF MUSIC | SESAC

There's a storm brewing, everybody inside He was made for running, there's nowhere left to hide You can see him coming from miles and miles He's got a bottle and a brain, the thunder before the rain He's best to be forgotten You knew was he was looking for He's best to be forgotten Cause he's a storm Everywhere that he goes he leaves devastation He's hit all fifty states so next up is your nation He's been all around the world Sea-to-sea, ocean-to-ocean, street-to-street Wipe away your tears, the man has no pity He's best to be forgotten You knew was he was looking for He's best to be forgotten Cause he's a storm He brought you to your knees You knew it was temporary That man is such a tease Everyone everywhere knows Everyone everywhere knows...

We need confirmation Are you coming for our blood? We saw your crash landing Will you join the band? Are you holding any alien drugs? You seem so familiar Yet you look so out of place Do you speak our language? Where is all your baggage? Do they not pack in outer space? Have you read the news yet? Their saying that your style is a "thing of perfection" Do they have celebrity in your part of the galaxy? Are they shocked at your sudden defection? RIP THE KNOB OFF MUSIC | SESAC

Did I dream this or are you a machine? I'd like to know where you came from Did I see it, you hovering around the sun? I can't be the only one... To believe that you're real I tried to take a photograph to reveal My friends don't believe me They think I'm full of shit I'm gonna show them one day When they take me on the Mothership It's going to prove I'm no the only one... To believe that they're real I tried to take a photograph to reveal RIP THE KNOB OFF MUSIC | SESAC

Jenny was a ghost She only appeared the ones that she loved most And when they told her that she didn't belong here She went and disappeared Jenny wasn't on the road for long It's hard to miss her, she's a blonde When Willie rolled up in his truck With that typical line, "Hey, baby, c'mon hop on up!" She couldn't be found at all Cause Jenny was a ghost She couldn't be seen at all Cause Jenny was a ghost She'd given and seen the best Until one day she was put to the test Jenny liked Willie's lean And Willie liked that Jenny was a woman of means So they decided to create their own scene At every truck stop, rest stop, drug stop till New Orleans She couldn't be found at all Cause Jenny was a ghost She couldn't be seen at all Cause Jenny was a ghost She'd given and seen the best Until one day she was put to rest RIP THE KNOB OFF MUSIC | SESAC

I entered such a beautiful world To so much unconditional love Now I need to learn how to crawl I know it sounds crazy But I used to be somebody else Now I am only me You CRAWL onto your knees You WALK until your memories RUN out Crawl, walk, then run You can't end What you ain't even begun It's true I know, I know, I know it all But then yesterday came Now I need to learn how to walk What happened to all of the fun That happened while I say by Now I need to learn how to run You CRAWL onto your knees You WALK until your memories RUN out Crawl, walk, then run You can't end What you ain't even begun It's true RIP THE KNOB OFF MUSIC | SESAC
