    Includes unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

    Better looking and more talented people have released albums entitled 'Lemonade,' but mine is the only one to feature aliens and a lemon spaceship on the cover (courtesy of Benji Keane). My album title comes from a line in "The Sweetest Thing." Some of you may have noticed that a few songs are missing, and if you feel strongly, email me. I have not had anyone knocking down my door for audio files of 'Radio' or 'Pun,' but ask, and you shall receive.

I know that girl she's Holly Golightly she speaks so fucking brightly that you can't see anything oh, mother of pearl you go for adornment she's another ornament that doesn't mean anything all he wants is just another kick in the shins why don't you give it to him? so, place the bet he'll run from the stables the jockey is able long as he's ponying up the string quartet will go with the odds here though the message is unclear he thinks that the bottle's enough all he wants is just another kick in the shins why don't you give it to him? the light at the end of the tunnel is just a funnel for you to slip through all he wants is just another kick in the shins why don't you give it to him? all he wants is another cyrano curse baby, if you wish for the worst you'll get the worst

I am moving across a crowded room I am doing my best to impress you I am trying to avoid the ricochet I can load the gun, but I'll never learn how to play I'll move for you each and every time with the hope that you'll quash my fears the gravity is thin, you'll pierce the skin slow motion in light years I am looming in a dusty cloud of sky no good assuming that there's more than meets the eye you will orbit in a vacuum, stuck in time I can board the ship, but I'll never learn how to fly I'll move for you each and every time with the hope that you'll quash my fears the gravity is thin, you'll pierce the skin slow motion in light years

I know you wanna knock me out well, guess what? your goal is a bout. you're waiting for the count of three to get at me I know you wanna crack my head guess what? I'm already dead hanging around to haunt the ring depending on what you believe but if you think there's hope well, here's the rope I'll be the first to hand you the trophy and if the uppercut just isn't enough don't worry, you'll get me in round three I know you wanna break me in well, my glass jaw's wearing thin but you're more content to bob and weave than hit me you think you've got a shot in hell aim on, I'm just a shell a blank bold faced legacy on a marquee but if you think there's hope well, here's the rope I'll be the first to hand you the trophy and if the uppercut just isn't enough don't worry, you'll get me in round three 'cause you're an amateur, baby

baby was good, good from the get go everyone stood, waiting for the signal take a double shot ante up one more for the pot I've got lots of time to wreck my life keep it in gear, it's yours for the taking though it isn't clear which mistakes you're making cellophane the sky hang the jury out to dry why not try lots of time to wreck my life there's nobody on the line you'll say that it's enough but if your demon is just a part of your business you've got it rough

the anti-ice queen, a shallow brigade think that you can turn me into lemonade or fuck me 'til I'm straight and seeing stars your ingenue, it's a sordid tale please give me the old hammer and nail 'cause I'm the girl in those smokey, dingy bars I don't ever wanna be the sweetest thing you've ever seen a pin up girl, poster child for your violence or stuck up in your trophy case, the cream pie ends up in my face with marriage, baby, take the vow of silence so, let's get busy, but not too busy to lead you to believe that I'm feeling dizzy 'cause I don't buy your act even for a minute if your endorphins are misbehaving that doesn't mean that I need saving an Oscar Wilde style trial for me to finish I don't ever wanna be the sweetest thing you've ever seen a pin up girl, poster child for your violence or stuck up in your trophy case, the cream pie ends up in my face with marriage, baby, take the vow of silence

remember nobody liked you? the irredeemably shy now you're that guy keeping up with the joneses buying and calling the shots you're on top the ballots are in the homecoming queen says you win the band starts to play but don't you remember what you used to say? I would've liked you anyway I would've been just as bad off if you wanted to stay with a gospel so fool proof who wouldn't believe everything you read but you're silently mocking the crowd at your feet don't you feel cheap? the hush through the stands shows that everything's going as planned but at the end of the day don't you remember what you used to say? I would've liked you anyway I would've been just as bad off if you wanted to stay the girls are asking me, they say, hey, do you know if he's free? I say, baby, he's cheaper than free.
