Track Name: Big Shiny Bomb
If I lit a match would I just let it burn me
If I sped towards crosswalks would they jump from my car
If I pushed you from a bridge, would you swim to safety
Would it come to haunt me if I stole your gun

Wish I had a button for the big shiny bomb
Wish I had a button for the big shiny bomb

Would I chicken out before we broke in the window
Anything worth trying is worth trying twice
Would you close your eyes before the whole thing crumbled
Would I pull the trigger if you asked me nice

Chorus

How many bottles can we break before we get dragged out
How many insults can he take before he smashed your face
Would you tell a lie beyond a shadow of a doubt
Would you really obliterate the human race

Chorus 2x

The big shiny bomb, the big shiny bomb, the big shiny bomb, the big shiny
Track Name: Evolution Of The Modern Gentlemen
I've run with beasts and goddamn animals
Raising flasks to greet the dawn
We're busy bleeding on the dance hall
Sixteen days turn into one

And this is our time
These are our ways
We're courtly and refined

I run with sharks and whiskey junkies
Functioning on rotting minds
Too busy eating up the termites
We don't know, but we will in time

This is our time
And these are our ways
Won't you come along for the ride

We were made for parking lots
Born to dance our asses off
Screaming "fire" in a crowded liquor store
We can't be tamed, but we'll be bought

And this is our time
These are our ways
We're courtly and refined
We are the Modern Gentlemen
Track Name: Love & Money
Unfortunate endeavors leave me in my head
Pushin' back the covers, sleep alone instead
Giving what I get dear exponentially
Hoping for that backwards day you do the same for me

No I'm not tryin' to squander what's left of twenty
But my tendencies lean toward
Wasted love & money

Forget my aspirations, end up playing house
Remember when I didn't loathe every word from your mouth
Only ever fought to win and what a special prize
Boredom, rage, suspicion, jealousy and compromise

And if I manage to survive my twenties
Will I learn how to stop
Wastin' love & money
Wasted love & money
Track Name: Dolla Billz
Don't go thinkin' you can take my money
I just wanna get paid
I ain't lookin' for no lovin' squeezin'
Cause I only wanna get laid

Can't get my fill, so I'm tradin' in my 20's, tradin' in my 20's
Can't get my fill, so I'm tradin' in my 20's for a single dollar bill yeah

Never asked you for your damned opinion, I'm only takin' what's mine
So start talkin' about what your givin'. No? You're only wastin' my time
