Track Name: Pay No Attention [alt]
pay no attention to the fool on the floor
she's been acting that way since you walked out her door
just leave her alone
don't call on her phone, she doesn't need a man like you anymore

pay no attention to the love that's been lost
you left it behind no matter the cost
just go away
she'll be fine someday
she doesn't need a man like you to throw her away

it's not worth losing any of your precious sleep
you'll never know about the secrets you keep

pay no mind to the tear in her eye
you never cared about her when you told her those lies
just go away- she'll be fine some day
Track Name: Young Neil [Version Electrique]
This song was not written, it came to Poindexter in a dream in 2002.
lyrics
there's something inside of me
help set it free
something is dying to get out
it's not all making sense
you know it never does
sometimes things just are and be

so now i sit alone
inside my perfect world
sometimes i think it's killing me
there's something inside of me - help set it free
something is very mad with me

and somewhere people don't care at all
an' sometimes somewhere people sometimes call
and somewhere people live their lives
they'll tell you so
and somewhere people never even know

a list of
everything
all the names that piss me off...
somewhere people don't care at all
an' sometimes somewhere people sometimes call
and somewhere people live their lives - they'll tell you so
and somewhere people never even know

I put my left foot out
right there in front of you
it's a game you wanted me to play
I push and push you pull
we try talk things through
if you want to leave then why are you here
there's something inside of me -help set it free
something is simply wrong with me -oh
somewhere people don't care at all
and sometimes somewhere people sometimes call
and somewhere people live their lives - they'll tell you so
and somewhere people never even know
somewhere people don't care at all
and sometimes somewhere people sometimes call
and somewhere people live their lives
they'll ask you once
they'll tell you twice
I know darling she'll come home to me...
Track Name: the People on my Block [alt]
I'm losing all my hair
it's falling from my head
and everyday's a struggle
to cope with what my doctor said
he said :
aside from halitosis
poor vision, a case of gout
I've several types of cancer
I could sure live without

And If I saw you today I would
walk on by / I would just turn
the other way / or just pass you
on by / because all of those times
that you said you believed
in me were a lie.

Now I'm laying in my deathbed
and staring at the clock
(I'm thinking my life over)
It's about a quarter past midnight
And I'm wishing,
I wish I could (still) walk
What'd I do?
I'd walk on down the streets
and I'd slither down my block
and say "hello" to neighbors
that god probably forgot

and If I came here today
I would walk on by
i am much happier now
and I cherish my time
and all those time that you laughed
or you joked or you cried
made me stronger
and if I saw you today
I would walk on by
I wouldn't surrender myself
or give you anymore time
than I've already
than I've already done so
coz i'm stronger
coz i'm stronger
coz i'm stronger
coz i'm stronger
