Hot Thoughts

LYRICS

1. HOT THOUGHTS

Hot thoughts melt in my mind
Could be your accent mixing with mine
You got me uptight, twisting inside
Hot thoughts all in my mind and all of the time babe
Hot thoughts all in my mind and all of the time yeah
Hot thoughts all in all in my mind alla the time

Your teeth shining so white
Light up this side street in Shibuya tonight
Hot thoughts melting my cool
Is it your motion signaling cues
Hot thoughts all in my mind and all of the time
You must be trouble for sure
Hot thoughts all in my mind and all of the time yeah
I tell it to you slow when I want ya to know
Hot thoughts all in all in my mind alla the time

Took time off from my kingdom
Took a break from the war
Took time off from my kingdom
Raise up my creatures
Diamonds from space
Pure facets and features

Last drag drug from your lips
Makin you think how good it was to let baby kiss em
And those hot thoughts melting your cool
Could be that motion signaling cues
Hot thoughts all in your mind, all of the time yeah
All that do my rhyme maketh you mine yeah
I think all I think all your love is enough

2. WHISPERI’LLLISTENTOHEARIT

I know you must hold secrets
Such a long way from home
You’re a lost letter needs delivery
Someday you’ll be where you should go
Someday you wont be so alone
Someday you’ll be where you should go
Someday you wont be so alone

You coulda been an acrobat
You coulda used what you know
You coulda been what you wanted
You fell for them lines like snow
Press me I’ll tell you I’m looking
Looking for some sign of life
Press me I’ll tell you I’m looking

Cmon gimme some spirit
Don’t take too much to get me excited
Whisper I’ll listen to hear it
Just show me some sign of life
I know you must hold secrets
Such a long way from home
You’re a lost letter needs delivery
Someday you’ll be where you should go
Someday you won’t be so alone
Someday you’ll be where you should go
Someday you won’t be so alone
Someday you’ll be where you should go

Candyman drives a fast car
He can be there any time
His fuel is anticipation
It’s good to feel wanted sometimes
All these expectations
Waiting for my cells to divide
Wait, is that too maudlin?
I’m just lookin for some sign of life
I know you must hold secrets
Such a long way from home
You’re a lost letter needs delivery
Someday you’ll be where you should go
Someday you wont be so alone
Someday you’ll be where you should go
Cmon show me some spirit
Don’t take much to get me excited
Whisper I’ll listen to hear it
Just show me some sign of life

3. DO I HAVE TO TALK YOU INTO IT

Here we go down a long dark road
Same place where we used to go
And the words get stuck on the tip of my tongue
Feeling cut off from everyone
Do I have to talk you into it
Do we have to make sense of it
When I’ve known you such a long long time
And we never had to act polite
I wanna whisper down the tube
All the words you would never use
Do I have to talk you into it

Jimmy digs in his long dark coat
Comes up with a tender throat
And he hides it away in Bronson Park
So he can’t get to it after dark
Do I have to talk you into it
Do we have to make sense of it
They say I better seal you up in wax
So that you’re never gonna bite me back
And I can feel it when I’m away
I got to get back tomorrow if not today
To try to talk you into it

When the mood of the era’s gone
Everybody fading me even my ma
And the words get stuck on the tip of my tongue
Feeling cut off from everyone
Do I have to talk you into it
Do I have to talk you into it
Well here we go down a long dark road
Been here man many times before
I wanna whisper down the tube
All kindsa words you would never use
Do I have to talk you into it

4. FIRST CARESS

Ex-lover, where you staying?
Every time that I come back again
I know you’re just the same
And when you say
And when you say the wrong thing
I know I hear the right thing
I know it’s just the same
Angel my love my first caress
I come back and I find you never changed
Then I think all the years from your love I’ve been dispossessed
From your love
My first caress

All your friends have come and went
Found a way to make a certain change
Coconut milk
Coconut water
You still like to tell me they’re the same
& who’m I to say?

Angel my love my first caress
I come back and I find you never changed
Then I think all the years from your love I’ve been dispossessed
From your love
My first caress
From your love
Oh yes
From your love
My first caress

5. PINK UP

If you leave us for later
Break off from everyday
Spend a week in the moment
Take the rain to Marrakesh
Just when you change your focus
We get our own ideas
Go cut down some things you wouldn’t
Hope you don’t end up alone
Everything you think we are we are
We’re come to mesmerize
Everything you fear we are we will be
The time is gonna come
The time is gonna come
We got our own ideas

6. CAN I SIT NEXT TO YOU

Can I sit next to you
Can you sit next to me
Get the stars out your eyes
Come and bring them to me
I been down so long
I been workin on a plan yeah
I been down so long
I gotta get me mine when I can

Can I sit next to you
Can you sit next to me
I walk to memphis alone
Cause you’d do it for me
I know you would
All the kicks from the sticks
All the kicks that we knew
I put all that aside
Concentrate on you
All the kicks from the sticks
All the hits that we took
All them stitches we got
All our brains so cooked
Someday I’m going to get right
You oughta~!
I been down so long
Been down but now I gotta get lifted up

I’m gonna walk a tight rope
Gonna get kicks every night
No one’s holding me back
No one’s changing my mind
Gonna walk a tight rope
Gonna get kicks every night
No one’s holding me back
No one’s changing my mind
Get the stars out your eyes
Come and sit next to me
Under Tennessee skies
Down on S Front Street
I been workin on a plan yeah
I been down so long
Been down but now I gotta get lifted up

7. I AIN’T THE ONE

When the moon is rising and looking on me
When the night comes knocking, knocking on me
I say I ain’t the one
I say I ain’t the one
I ain’t the one the one that you’re looking for now

When the man comes asking and looking for me
When the law comes knockin, knockin on me
I ain’t the one
No I ain’t the one
I ain’t the one that you’re looking for now
I ain’t the one
I ain’t the one
So now I’m leaving you all behind me

When the world comes crashin, crumblin on me
When the day comes knockin, knockin on me
I say
I ain’t the one
I ain’t the one
I ain’t the one
I ain’t the one
So now I’m leaving you all behind me

8. TEAR IT DOWN

You were out walking the park
I was at the owl cafe
When the sirens rang
And now we’re never gonna meet
But I feel you anyway
I was trying to get out of town
You passed in an ambulance
We was in a trance
And now we’re never gonna meet
But I feel you anyway
Let them build a wall around us
I don’t care I’m gonna tear it down
It’s just bricks and ill intentions
They don’t stand a chance
I’ll tear it down

Signals you send
Secrets you would never tell
People you’ve been
People you bend to your will
Darkness comes on
And lingers past the dawn
Tension it lends
Tension tension tension waiting
Let them build a wall around us
I don’t care I’m gonna tear it down
It’s just bricks and ill intentions
They don’t stand a chance
I’ll tear it down

You were just getting off work
I was down at the city stacks
When the sky went black
And now we’re never gonna meet
But I feel you anyway
Yeah I feel you today
Let them build a wall
I don’t care I’m gonna tear it down
It’s just bricks and ill intentions
They don’t stand a chance
I’ll tear it down

9. SHOTGUN

When the matches burn into dust
Someone’s always gotta be sweeping them up
You done yours yeah I know done mine
You caught a break when I gave you the time
Tell us now little man what’s what
You’re the one that had to go show his stuff
You’re the one that brought a shotgun
Yes you went and brought a shotgun

How many times did you come back and quit
How many times were you not feeling it
Calling for blood with your battle song
I’d rather not, got my own thing on
I never wanted to take it outside
You’re the one that hadda go bring that fight
You’re the one that brought a shotgun
You went and brought a shotgun
You’re the one that brought a shotgun
Yeah you went and brought a shotgun

Another year comes
Another year comes
But nothin’s gonna stop it
Nothin’s gonna stop it
Another year comes
Another year comes
And nothin gonna stop it
Nothin gonna stop it

I shoot straight, my words elemental
Old school South Side like Rock and Roll Rentals
Back when we couldn’t afford the Continental
You and me dreamin’ bout full medical and dental
I never wanted to take it outside
Then you brought what you did to the fight
You’re the one that brought a shotgun
Yes you went and brought a shotgun
You’re the one that brought a shotgun
You’re the one that made it no fun
You’re the one that brought a shotgun
Yeah you went and brought a shotgun
You’re the one that brought a shotgun
