Track Name: Cameo
I wrote this song
Waiting for you
To put on your make up
In your dressing room
It’s about how every director in town Wants to put
your face in a film and I get lost underfoot

You’re always soaking up
The lime-light every single night
And I left standing off stage right
You like to keep me outta sight

Cause im just an extra in the movie adaptation of your life
Lonely boy #2 spends all night dreaming of you
And when the credits roll at the end of the show
I’ll be remembered, remembered as just a cameo

I use to have a leading part
But now im just an understudy to your heart
Still gotta memorize all those lines
That on the silver screen would make you fall in love with me

Cause im just an extra in the movie adaptation of your life
Lonely boy #2 spends all night dreaming of you
And when the credits roll at the end of the show
I’ll be remembered, remembered as just a cameo

It’s a sad sad situation, I’ve done all I can to get your attention
But you're blinded by the stage light, can’t hear my curtain call
And I just wanted to shine next to you is all

Oh that’s all

Now the red carpet is your home, and I’m stuck here all alone
Watching you talk to all of your producers on the phone
Can’t help thinking that I didn’t try hard enough
To make you see my name in lights

Cause I’m still an extra in the movie adaptation of your life
Lonely boy #2 spends all night dreaming of you
And when the credits roll at the end of the show
I’ll be remembered yeah I’ll be remembered, I’ll be remembered

As an extra in the movie adaptation of your life
Lonely boy #2 spends all night dreaming of you
And when the credits roll at the end of the show
I’ll be remembered yeah I’ll be remembered
As just a cameo
Track Name: Ms. Practice
In the Cosco parking lot
You step outta your SUV
Struttin’ all the game you got
for the bag boys just like me

Your jogging suit is baby blue
I’m in my orange safety vest
On the back says I’ll help you
I wish it ended with ‘undress’

I’ll ask if I can
Help you load your minivan
I wouldn’t want you to strain that behind
That you got jumping up and down on the sideline

You bought the biggest size
box of kiwi Capri Sun
And you look me up and down and whisper
Hey boy you want some

I want you to introduce
Me to the situations
That I read about in health class
Yeah that hands on education

Oh soccer mom
You got it going on
I know I'm only 16 but how about this
Let's bang in your mini van, and make you ms. Practice

Look lady, all your gonna do is cut up a bunch of orange slices and pour gatoraide into Dixie cups
Come on your kid’s team probably sucks anyway do they even keep score at those games?
Stay with me instead I almost have a mustache. Come on!

Oh soccer mom
You got it going on
I know I'm only 16 but how about this
Let's bang in your mini van, and make you Ms. Practice
Track Name: Heartache with a Side of Mayonnaise
She lost her virginity at the end of freshman year
And nobody knew but me, they didn’t know that I could hear
I could hear it all through the thin dorm wall

I know I’m not the kinda guy that girls would call high school cool
I write my feelings in my journal before my mom takes me school
Oh no no what gives Roger the right to fuck the girls I like?

Passed her a note in class said “Do you like me?”
Told her to circle one said “Yes No Maybe”
She showed it to everyone now I’m the laughing stock of Bluffington
And even my sister Judy knows

Track Name: Karma Kid
Well I’ve been asked so many times before
How I keep all my troubles from knockin’ down the door
Well it’s a care-free state of mind
And I will show you how if you give me the time

It’s an old school kind of philosophy
I just do what I want the world to do back to me
It’s as simple as the light of day
Come on be a karma kid with me and let the music take you away


If you think you can get down
With paying it forward and getting it back around
Well then my friend you’re in good company
come on sanctify your soul and be a karma kid with me

oh oh oh it’s a cycle of love
that I bet you
only thought existed in imagination
it’s just so easy man it’ll get you by
that supernatural high

It’s an old school kind of philosophy
I just do what I want the world to do back to me
It’s as simple as the light of day
Come on be a karma kid with me and let the music take you away

If you think you can get down
With paying it forward and getting it back around
Well then my friend you’re in good company
come on sanctify your soul and be a karma kid with me
