Track Name: alive
invincible
UNFUCKWITHABLE
ima stretch my brain
never cry, i won't complain
inscrutable
just plain magical
oh, electric air
fill my lungs with fire fire

i'm in the business of being alive
i will not falter, i'll never die
i'm in the business of being alive
i am the shelter

release your heart
and do it from the start
oh your wings will lift you up and you'll never stop singing
release your heart
and do it from the start
oh your wings will lift you up and you'll never stop singing

keep scratching my head
feet are lead
man, i'm so lame
stop thinking so much
don't worry too much
man, i'm my own crutch
gotta let it go
light it up, man
stretch my flow
oh electric air
resuscitate YA FIRE FIRE

i'm in the business of being alive
i will not falter, i'll never die
i'm in the business of being alive
i am the shelter

have you ever really been alive
have you ever really been alive
point your cannon to the sky
have you ever been alive?
Track Name: 85 blocks
85 blocks
on the rocks
taking my time
watch it unwind
used to be black
wish apollo was back
james brown's looking down at the harlem hipsters
cigarettes butts
ten tow trucks
japs in gold
watch it unfold
jogging bankers
capitalist wankers
sweating bullets of green
through strawberry fields

i'm not taking a cab
not taking a subway
when i leave the bar
i'd rather gum on my shoe
i'm walking my shame off
so i gotta walk far

new york means hitting the skids
i love this holy misfit
here's where the weirdos unite
trying to revive the good inside

85 blocks
wearing striped socks
broadway hags
fake handbags
koreatown
cobblestone grounds
cops eat donuts
under the rainbow
the crust punks' bailed
and left us with poseurs
giving hobos a dime
stop for gin and lime
children of rockstars
with zipper doc martens
they're paying the bills
high on mom and dad's pills

i'm not taking a cab
not taking a subway
when i leave the bar
i'd rather gum on my shoe
i'm walking my shame off
so i gotta walk far

85 blocks
don't look at my watch
the suns coming up
over ground zero
seaport seagulls
they'll pick at my bones
85 blocks
just to get to the water
Track Name: supernova
earth cannot contain us
love exploding everywhere
give my heart to science
dance to heaven like Astaire

science telling me we ain't evolved for days
faith is telling me i gotta stay afraid
science telling me we was neanderthal
faith is telling me that god can see it all

you and me, we're a supernova
yeah you and me, we're a supernova
oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
celestial cassanova
you and me, we're a supernova

mother of a thrill ride
driving through it wicked blind
journey through the sickness
never live a pointless life

science telling me we la chapelle aux saints
faith is telling me i gotta give up all
war is telling me i gotta stay afraid
but lover i'm your nitrogen we'll split fer days

you and me, we're a supernova
yeah you and me, we're a supernova
oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
i'm your Tereshkova
yeah you and me, we're a supernova

we got heart we got heart
we're gonna get it right
we need love we need love
we're gonna get it right
science telling me we la chapelle aux saints
but lover i'm your nitrogen i'll give it all

cuz you and me, we're a supernova
yeah you and me, we're a supernova oh-oh-oh-oh
yeah you can be my H-O-V-A
cuz you and me, we're a supernova
