about

The title track is the sound of Prince and Rick Springfield french-kissing, and previews Juha's forthcoming 'Skeletons of Love' album. Its funk-pop vibe is followed by non-album tracks that find Juha covering three 80’s classics: an exclusive dancefloor-friendly remix of "Ain't Nothin’ Goin’ On But The Rent,” the Gwen Guthrie-penned song that he first remade on 'The Grooms of God' (with its slight rewrite transplanting Gwen's original lyrics into a world of male prostitution); "Goodbye To You,” Juha's a cappella doo-wop version of Scandal's new wave hit; and "Steppin’ Out,” in which Juha tips his hat to Joe Jackson.

Track Name: Stomach
Stomach
(written by collin clay chace aka juha; includes an interpolation of "i'm gonna get you" by bizarre inc.)

Your stomach has been untouched for too long
It’s time that our spines curled in the same world
Do I have to undo my own zipper for ya?
It’s time that I screamed like a little girl

(scream like a banshee here)

Cuz God didn’t make our tongues to be wasted
On words or on food or on clucking
I’ve strutted and played for the masquerade
But now it’s time for…

I shouldn’t be left to my own devices
To loving myself when I hit the can
Do I have to scrap with that skinny bitch who
Think two little nuts make him a man?

If I offend I’m awful sorry
That you’re so sensitive
But you can’t expect my manners would be
Better than the head you give

Now there ain’t a man who exists on this planet
To live without love’s penetration
And if you won’t open up when your belt’s on the ground
It’s my castration

There’s a hole in the bucket dear Liza, dear liza
Where there’s a hole I’m gonna f**k it
So don’t be a miser
Art school baby - don’t be lazy
Got the biscuits for my gravy
Batting lashes got you far
But slow molasses still gets jarred

I know your man plays innocent
The maestro of nicey-nicey
Yeah he’s so innocent that he’s brain dead
Or will be after he meets me

Now God didn’t give me fists to vent fury
They just take out those who jinx the equation
And then my hands will be free to hold you to me
It’s our salvation

So why waste your time?
You know you’re gonna be mine.
Track Name: Ain't Nothin Goin On But The Rent (A Little Common Cents Mix)
Written by Gwen Guthrie.

In Gwen's original, the chorus is: "You've got to have a J-O-B if you wanna be with me." Recast as a loner's voice from within a male prostitution circle, Juha has changed it to "We're gonna play it C.O.D if you wanna be with me" - Cash On Delivery. A few other Juha lyric additions:

"Preacher wanna save my soul
as I ease on down the road."

"I surely have enjoyed this form of being unemployed."

"Rich boys and hustlers both got Daddy -
One in the Porsche, and one in the paddy wagon."

"Rough diamond - rough trade."

Ain't nothin goin on but the Rent Boy.

"A little common cents."
Track Name: Goodbye To You
