Things I’m Gonna Do

Against the law to talk about the
Rocket in the park i send it
Off to be examined by a
Scientific team
On the moon, on the moon
On the moon, on the moon

I organize a council where the
Prize goes unannounced until there’s
In the trees a city, just some
Leaves we left it pretty
Long ago, long ago
Long ago, oh so long ago

I have half a mind, it’s cracked and breaking
It’s recommended as great for tasting
Spit in the face of a tried, and true one
These are things that i’m going to do

My cave is lit with tiny lights
I climb the stairs and catch the sights
Of other people far below
I’ve heard of them, they think they know
I make no friends, i’ve got no spark
In my defense, i take apart
Whats’ put together easily
This is all true
I’ll make it be

Everyday, like jesus he’s not
Up there he can’t see us maybe
Eyes uplifted slowly for affect
The land below me
Far away, far away
Far away, oh so far away

I have half a mind, it’s cracked and breaking
It’s recommended as great for tasting
Spit in the face of a tried, and true one
These are things that i’m going to do

I make no friends, i’ve got no spark
In my defense, i take apart
Whats’ put together easily
This is all true
I’ll make it be

I have half a mind, it’s cracked and breaking
It’s recommended as great for tasting
Spit in the face of a tried, and true one
These are things that i’m going to do

Livin La Vida Loca.

She’s into superstitions
Black cats and voodoo dolls
I feel a premonition
That girl’s gonna make me fall

She’s into new sensations
New kicks in the candlelight
She’s got a new addiction
For every day and night

She’ll make you take your clothes off
And go dancing in the rain
She’ll make you live her crazy life
But she’ll take away your pain
Like a bullet to your brain (come on)

Upside inside out
She’s livin’ la vida loca
She’ll push and pull you down
Livin’ la vida loca

Her lips are devil red
And her skin’s the color of mocha
She will wear you out
Livin’ la vida loca (come on)
Livin’ la vida loca (come on)
She’s livin’ la vida loca

Alright

Woke up in New York City
In a funky cheap hotel
She took my heart
And she took my money
She must’ve slipped me a sleeping pill

She never drinks the water
Makes you order French champagne
Once you’ve had a taste of her
You’ll never be the same
Yeah, she’ll make you go insane (come on)

Upside inside out
She’s livin’ la vida loca
She’ll push and pull you down
Livin’ la vida loca

Her lips are devil red
And her skin’s the color of mocha
She will wear you out
Livin’ la vida loca (come on)
Livin’ la vida loca
She’s livin’ la vida loca

She’ll make you take your clothes off
And go dancing in the rain
She’ll make you live her crazy life
But she’ll take away your pain
Like a bullet to your brain (come on)

Upside inside out
She’s livin’ la vida loca
She’ll push and pull you down
Livin’ la vida loca

Her lips are devil red
And her skin’s the color of mocha
She will wear you out
Livin’ la vida loca (come on)

Upside inside out
She’s livin’ la vida loca
She’ll push and pull you down
Livin’ la vida loca

Her lips are devil red
And her skin’s the color of mocha
She will wear you out
Livin’ la vida loca (come on)
Livin’ la vida loca (come on)
She’s livin’ la vida loca

Come on
Livin’ la vida loca
Gotta love la vida loca
Gotta, gotta love la vie
