Lyrics

The Bastard and the Tramp

Written By: Maika Makovski

(To Ava and Frank)

He and I, we were introduced by a common friend named Alfie,
It could've been 1952 at L.A's hot place Mocambo.

I put on my lipstick a bit over the edge
I said "yes, I'm pretty, but my morals stink"

He's a bastard and I'm a tramp
We're drunk and shootin' guns in swing, swing land
He's a bastard and I'm a tramp
Sometimes it's the other way around as well

He had the most intense of stares that I have ever encountered
He put down his cigarrette and he took on staring at me.

Without taking notice of anyone else, he said accross the table "you and I will do great things"

He's a bastard and I'm a tramp
We're drunk and shootin' guns in swing, swing land
He's a bastard and I'm a tramp
Sometimes it's the other way around

He grabbed me like I was a ragged doll and pushed me to the dancefloor
He had a wife and I had a date, but we couldn't keep our hands off

Drunk drivin' to the horizon
We passed the bottle 'til we got to Idaho

He's a bastard and I'm a tramp
We're drunk and shootin' guns in swing, swing land
He's a bastard and I'm a tramp
Sometimes it's the other way around

He's a bastard and I'm a tramp
He's a bastard and I'm a tramp
He's a bastard and I'm a tramp
He's a bastard and I,
I am a tramp.

Like I Owe you the World

Written By: Maika Makovski

You make me feel so alone
Like the world owns me
And like I owe you the world
And it's fine,
You know I let go,
But only so much

You make me feel so in debt,
Like the world owns me
And like I owe you the world
You always knew that guilt worked well with me
And you just let it be

The truth is, my love, that I'm tired
Of hearing reproaches all of the time
'Cause I never meant to cause any harm
And I'm sorry if I ever have

You make me feel so old
Like the world owns me
And like I owe you the world
And I just wanna be young,
Sit on the grass and hum

Lalalala...

The truth is, my love, that I'm tired
Of hearing reproaches all of the time
'Cause I never meant to cause any harm
And I'm sorry if I ever have

Yes, I'm sorry if I ever have
But I must go, anyhow
Yes, I must go now

Chill Out, Charles!

Written By: Maika Makovski


Chill out, Charles,
You don't have to get trascendental
If you want ass
Use your imagination

Chill out, Charles
Get rid of deep
Rid of Profound
And let yourself go
It's all that matters to me now

Chill out, Charles
You don't have to get sentimental
'Cause I am bored
Of self pity and self flagellation

Chill out, Charles
Get rid of deep, rid of profound
And let yourself go
It's all that matters to me now!

Lava Love

Written By: Maika Makovski


Shhh... there's nothing I wanna say in words to you
Shhh... there's nothing I wanna talk about with you

Yakety yakety yak
No yakety yak
Gimme something sincere

Gimme lava love, lava love, lava love, lava love,
lava
love
Gimme lava love, lava love, lava love, lava love,
lava
love

Game of Doses

Written By: Maika Makovski

GAME OF DOSES

Negotiations, not love,
Not love.
A game of doses, not love,
Not love.

Negotiations, not love.
A game of doses, not love.

You give me shelter, not love,
I give you a taste,
not love

Not love.

It's a well thought of plan
Not love
A game of doses,
Not love.

A game of doses for ill ego junkies, not love
A game of doses for existential respite,
Not love

Strategy,
baby,
Not love
A game of doses,
Not love.
A treat of power for everybody
A cup of submission to keep us
Alive

A treat of power for everybody

A cup of submission to keep us alive.
