Track Name: Burlesque Taco Truck
uno dos tres quatro

you could drive a
taco truck
thru the hole in my heart
you gotta know where it ends
you gotta know where it starts
in '97

we were face-down drunk at the galaxy
of course
and you put your hand in my
tight bike shorts and it was
heaven

baby we were born to rock
baby we were born to run
baby we were born just to be born
and we're not foolin' anyone

in the backseat of the dynasty
again
and you were smoking cigarettes
with your new friends and it was
heaven

there's a
lot of things that i don't understand
how you could take it right back
to your ex-man
his name was kevin

baby we were born to rock
baby we were born to run
baby we were born just to be born
and we're not foolin' anyone
GET WILD

baby we were born to rock
baby we were born to run
baby we were born just to be born
and we're not foolin' anyone

work of art sprayed from cans he's dismayed
but of course its' too late to complain

kinky horse rides the streets in crisis
taking aim at abandoned devices
work of art sprayed from cans he's displayed
but of course it's too late to complain

he's a krylon soldier
he can ride so high
he's a krylon soldier
yelling tag or die
he's a krylon soldier
he can ride so high
he's a krylon soldier
yelling tag or die

Track Name: Ke$ha's Haunted Vagina
god bless the seedy bars
Pall Malls and PBRs
mixtapes and Combat Rock
mixtapes of Christian pop
god bless the basement shows
a broken arm and bloody nose
Party at ground zero
now we've got no place to go

and if you asked me again
i wouldn't change a thing
it was fun
and it was dumb
and it was everything
but if i'm telling the truth
i wouldn't change a thing
it was fun
and it was dumb
and it was everything

god bless the shitty bands
falling into a sea of hands
get drunk get home again
get on the bus and go hard again
god bless the warehouse raves
secrets we take to our graves
pills to drop and your brain's a wreck
peace love unity respect

and if you asked me again
i wouldn't change a thing
it was fun
and it was dumb
and it was everything
but if i'm telling the truth
i wouldn't change a thing
it was fun
and it was dumb
and i regret everything

Track Name: 32 Exposure
see you dressed in black and white
(32 exposure)
lighting smokes off the pilot light
(32 exposure)

your hair slicked to your head
a coffin draped in clover
your hands so bloody red
this conversation's over

can't remember all that night
(avoiding full disclosure)
still don't know just what was right
(avoiding full disclosure)

do you know who you are now?
have you figured yourself out yet?
do you know who you are now?
have you figured yourself out?

see you dressed in black and white
(32 exposure)
