LYRICS:

R’n’R

You don’t rock and roll like you used to
You don’t rock and roll like you used to

You don’t want to do the twist
You got a new dance, it goes like this

You don’t rock and roll like you used to
You don’t rock and roll like you used to

You don’t want to jump and shout
You just want to sit and pout

You don’t rock and roll like you used to
You don’t rock and roll like you used to

You yell and curse about how you’re pissed
I’d rather play a song that’ll get me kissed

You don’t rock and roll like you used to
Whoo hoo

I never did get the whole techno thing
What does it mean if it ain’t got that swing?
Emo’s dark and metal’s fast
It might, uh, work for some, but I think I’ll pass

You don’t rock and roll like you used to
Whoo hoo

NOVOCAIN

You’ve gotten tough
Your heart’s been beat up
You said it only hurt a little bit
You’ve had enough
Disingenuous love
And everything that comes with it
You get a thrill
When you reel ‘em in a little
Then you turn away
What’s a boy t’ do
With a girl like you
But give his heart a shot of Novocain

Give your heart a shot of Novocain
Don’t feel anything
Nothin’ gonna get to you

Give your heart a shot of Novocain
Don’t feel anything

There are nights
When you feel all right
You don’t need anyone around
Other times
When your words don’t rhyme
You wish he was there to write you a poem
You wanna keep ‘im on a string
When it looks like he’s a driftin’
You can pull him back
Makes a boy wonder
About your previous lovers
And what they could’ve done to make you act like that

Gave your heart a shot of Novocain
Don’t feel anything
Nothin’ gonna get to you

Give your heart a shot of Novocain
Don’t feel anything
No joy, no pain

I know about that condition
Be careful what you wish upon yourself
Might help to get you by like any temporary fix
Or hollow you out unlike anything that you had ever felt

Give your heart a shot of Novocain
Don’t feel anything
Nothin’ gonna get to you

Give your heart a shot of Novocain
Don’t feel anything
No joy, no pain

Give your heart a shot
Give your heart a shot of Novocain

HARD KISSER

I bet anything you’re a hard kisser
I bet you put your lips right through mine
Take the breath right outta my lungs
You sweet, seductive serpentine

One night with you, I know
I would never be the same
I bet anything you’re a hard kisser
And I don’t even want to know your name

You could have me walkin’
On my knees to your door
Oh yeah, I know
Like every other lusting man before

Let’s just say for argument’s sake
I put the make on and you take the bait
Don’t want to see a misty look in your eyes
I’m not invitin’ you to go look at a sunrise

I’m no the kind that you want to dismiss for
Your baby-toothed, momma’s little well-wisher, naw
Think of me as a man on a mission
I bet anything you’re a hard kisser

You could have me walkin’
On my knees to your door
Could be everything ever dreamed
Only one way we can know for sure

I bet anything you’re a hard kisser
I bet you put your lips right through mine
Here’s a key and the number to my door
Why don’t ya come up and see me sometime

FALL IN LOVE (CJ Watson, Greg Klyma)

Fall in love

I don’t know what to expect
Except that I’ll find out in time
Time has never been my friend
Spending it waiting for a sign to see
If there’s time for me

I seek comfort from my friends
My friends say to let you go
Go on tell me that they’re wrong
Tell me something so I’ll know what to do
Should I show I feel somethin’ for you

So much time all alone
Reached some conclusions on my own
But this one’s got me stumblin’, trippin’
Lord, could I be slippin’, tumblin’
From this humpty dumpty wall
What would happen if I fall in love?

Fall in love

No use wasting all this time
This time you’ve got to decide
Which side of this thing you’re on
On the move or on my mind, what’s it gonna be?
Is there time, is there time for me?

So much time all alone
Reached some conclusions on my own
But this one’s got me stumblin’, trippin’
Lord, could I be slippin’, tumblin’
From this humpty dumpty wall
What would happen if I fall in love?

CHAT IT UP

Talk talk talk roll out the red carpet
For the communications’ age
I emailed my fax machine to dial up your cell phone
Did you get the page
Nowadays there isn’t anywhere you can go
Where you can’t reach everyone and they can’t reach you
While some people thrive in this other’s in self-defense
Simply do not chat it up like they used to

Cell phone society talk is cheap you should see
My pricing plan
I can talk to my girlfriend in town for as much
As it costs me to talk to this girl in Japan
She don’t speak my language and I don’t speak hers
A computer chip translates as we chortle and coo
When my girl in town found out she blew a fuse and now
We just do not chat it up like we used to

Email retrieval syndrome Orwell was onto something
Screens casting images in everyone’s room
Information super highway surf surf surf surf safari
Help me Rhonda yea you got to chat me up soon
Online breeds cowardice as everyone’s alias
Keeps them anonymous in their points of view
With capital letters Rhonda said that I upset her and now
We just don’t chat it up like we used to… in the chit chat room

Once upon a time in my neighborhood you could see
All the way down to the end of the street
Neighbors were neighborly we sat on our porches
I knew all their names they knew me
Now folks keep to themselves all locked up in their houses
Eight foot high fences obscuring the view
We wave to each other as we exit our driveways
But we just do not chat it up like we used to

I need a tonic for talk electronic
While others just cannot get enough of it
Yes, my cell phone is handy but I have a pet peeve
Can I get a witness where’s the etiquette
At movies and concerts libraries and restaurants
They talk on the cell phone and don’t have a clue
I’m told I should accept it but I find it rude
There are some things that I just don’t care to get used to

There are certain subjects you don’t chat up in polite company
But all this talk about talking has me feeling quite odd
I was torn over which to pick so I flipped a coin to decide the topic
Tales down no politics for now heads up God
Born again Christians praying to a born again Jew
And this one says like Abraham he speaks with you know who
Well I’ve read from scripture and I’ve talked to God too
But He just does not chat it up like He used to
She just does not chat it up like She used to
It does not chat It up


FEAR (CJ Watson, John Brady, Greg Klyma)

Fear is a powerful master
Ruling with an iron glove
Imposing limitations upon you
Keeping you from things that you love

The questions you need to be askin’
What are you lookin’ for here
Do you stand to gain more from avoiding your hopes or
Overcoming your fear

You’re afraid of losing her
That’s a natural fact
She’s afraid of having you
How natural is that

The questions you need to be askin’
What are you lookin’ for here
Do you stand to gain more from avoiding your hopes or
Overcoming your fear
The questions you need to be askin’
What are you lookin’ for here
Do you stand to gain more from avoiding your hopes or
Overcoming your fear

YOU KNOW ME BETTER

You are my very best friend
You are my very best friend
You are my very best friend, you are
You are my very best friend
You are my very best friend
That’s great and we just met tonight

You know me better than anyone
You know me better than anyone else
You know me better than anyone
You know me better than anyone does
You know me better and that’s great
Cause we just met tonight

We’ve got so much in common
You know my hopes and fears
I never seen it comin’
I’ve waited all these years
You know me better and that’s great
Cause we just met tonight

I think we should go back to my place and have sex…

You are my very best friend
You are my very best friend
You are my very best friend, you are
You are my very best friend
You are my very best friend
That’s great and we just met tonight

You know me better than anyone
You know me better than anyone else
You know me better than anyone
You know me better than anyone does
You know me better and that’s great
Cause we just met tonight

SPENDING THE NIGHT

Why aren’t we spending the night together
Why aren’t we lying in each other’s arms
Why aren’t we sharing our sides of the stories
Of the lives we’ve live so far

And we don’t have to do anything but talk
And we don’t have to do anything at all
I could just look at you in the moonlight’s glow
You were sleepin’
You didn’t have to know
You didn’t even know

Why aren’t we spending the night together
Why aren’t we lying in each other’s arms
Why aren’t we sharing our sides of the stories
Of the lives we’ve live so far

THE SADDEST WAY

Lookin’ for a way to get through to you
Searchin’ for the words to say
Wonderin’ if there’s anything nice that I could do
Probably wouldn’t matter much anyway

I’d probably just be crossin’ some line
Isn’t it a cryin’ shame
You spend so much time searchin’ for a someone like her
And the ya find ‘er only to find out that she doesn’t feel the same

Oh ooh whoa
I heard somebody sayin’ it was beautiful

Well, don’t ya think I know it is
Oh ooh whoa
So beautiful in the saddest way

I blame myself if things got to feelin’ just a little uncomfortable
I’ve always been the awkward kind
I was just thinkin’ maybe, perhaps we
I don’t know what put such a silly idea in my mind
Now maybe I should go
Don’t wanna think about a love no more

Oh ooh whoa
I heard somebody sayin’ it was beautiful
Well, don’t ya think I know it is
Oh ooh whoa
So beautiful in the saddest way

Oh ooh whoa
I heard somebody sayin’ it was beautiful
Well, don’t ya think I know it is
Oh ooh whoa
So beautiful
In the saddest way

WHAT'S SO GREAT ABOUT LOVE(John Brady)

What’s so great about love?
Falling in and out of maybe
Seems it only makes you crazy
What’s so great about love?

What so great about love?
Thought a lot about it lately
It’s full of lots of ifs and maybes
What so great about love?

Did she mean what she just said
Or was I reading into that?
There’s the phone, well, maybe that’s her now

Does she want to be with me?
Or is it in my mind or maybe
She will take my arm and say “don’t go”
How do I know?

What so great about love?
It isn’t really realistic
You really gotta be a mystic
What so great about love?

I feel like I’m just seventeen
Ridiculous, but true, it seems
It’s like I wanna meet you after school
I wanna run, I wanna hide
I wanna pull ya to my side
I wanna know what I’m supposed to do
What do I do?

What so great about love?
The evidence is on the table
It’s better in rhymes and fables
I’m ready but I feel unable
What so great about love?

Maybe we’ll have coffee and we’ll talk an hour or more
It gets late, she stands up, so do I, we eye the door
Man, I feel stupid. Does she know it? Does it show?
Then the silence roars like thunder and it’s time somebody stays
And someone goes
The tension grows

What’s so great about love?
Falling in and out of maybe
Seems it only makes you crazy
What’s so great about love?
What’s so great about love?
What’s so great about love?

GOOD ABOUT ANYTHING

I ain’t feelin’ too good about anything
And it’s been hard to pinpoint just what it is that’s wrong
Makes me want to run off to the hills or some place
Where I can just sit for awhile
Underneath the sun
Write it all down in a journal
Bury it there and move on

Hey, I adore ya, Just like I said I did
What I’ve learned about you ain’t too flattering
So, I’ll keep it hid
I only think about ya, Every now and then
When I ain’t feeling too good about anything

Who needs you, who needs anything
When you’ve got a radio, four wheels and an open road
Got a station comin’ in from some place far away
Ain’t that the way it goes
Just when ya find a song that’s good
You’ve taken that car just a mile too far
And the signal’s gone but you’ve just gotta move on

Hey, I adore ya, Just like I said I did
What I’ve learned about you ain’t too flattering
So, I’ll keep it hid
I only think about ya, Every now and then
When I ain’t feeling too good about anything

So what I’m a dreamer
Makin’ wishes is what I do
So what if some of ‘em fall flat
Even dreamers know that they can’t all come true

Hey, I adore ya, Just like I said I did
What I’ve learned about you ain’t too flattering
So, I’ll keep it hid
I only think about ya, Every now and then
When I ain’t feeling too good about anything

Good about anything

DRIVER (Brenton, Klyma)

You give me somethin' then ya take it back
Tell me driver what you're drivin' at
Stated your case, I thought that that was that
You give me somethin' then ya take it back

I might’ve guessed you was deceivin’ me
Now all my dreams lay across the sea
The driver can not take that road
Gonna build a ship and sale it on my own

You give me somethin' then ya take it back
Tell me driver what you're drivin' at
Stated your case, I thought that that was that
You give me somethin' then ya take it back

Tell me now Driver what’s your song
A few good lines but it lasts too long
Sorry now Driver I can’t stay
Patience for a moment then it fades away

It kind of fades away
It kind of fades away
It kind of fades away
It kind of fades away

You give me somethin' then ya take it back
Tell me driver what you're drivin' at
Stated your case, I thought that that was that

You give me somethin' then ya take it back

It kind of fades away
It kind of fades away
It kind of fades away
It kind of fades away

David Morreale

It's TRUE! He IS great at parties.
Man, this CD is the very definition of cool. Klyma is a walkin' talkin, rootin' tootin' cowboy with a wicked sense of funny and a mind that doesn't stop freewheelin' and he threw all those sensibilities into this record. This thing rocks AND rolls. It really is a great road record and I, for one, can tell you that this record moooooves and groooves. Unwind yer mind, rethread yer head and slap on a little Klyma... it'll get you laid, folks!
