Lyrics

Hot Shot Cool Cut

Written By: Yukio Yamamura

Well, someday I?fll be dead might be today
Fade in fade out, you cry like slow motion

Hot shot cool cut
Hot shot cool cut
Hot shot cool cut
Hot shot cool cut

There was this whole kind a punk rock folk scene
And noise music chaos poetry underground basement
40 ounce malt liquor being crazy scene going on

Hot shot cool cut
Hot shot cool cut
When I come to say
Hot shot cool cut
Hot shot cool cut

I step into your love again

Hot shot cool cut

Superstitious

Written By: Yukio Yamamura

Yesterday get on a bus and saw you step in the throng
Yesterday she?fs knocking on the door
Then like smoke comes through the door
What?fs gonna happen to you next?
You?fre living in this world
Tu turu tu tu turu tu tu turu tu tu turu tu

Yesterday someone somewho somewhere somehow to all directions
Yesterday you?fre knocking on the door
Then like shadow comes through the door
What?fs gonna happen to you next?
You?fre living in this world
Tu turu tu tu turu tu tu turu tu tu turu tu
Think about you think about me think without you think without me

I?fm superstitious, superstitious yeah,
Superstitious yeah

Parade

Written By: Yukio Yamamura

Do you know which way you are going?
Do you know which way to right or left?
Do you know which way you are turning?
Do you know which way to dance street dance

You got to mix it, ya got to fix it
Just like the day in south down night
You got to mix it, ya got to fix it
Heartbreaker, I?fm so shattered, you make a grown man cry

Yeah, when you call my name at night time
My heart is beating louder
I look inside myself and see my heart is so black

I have something more
You got something more
I have something more
You got something more
