Notes[edit]

On the first track, Lewis joked that a rule at Carnegie is that he was not allowed to say fuck more than 12 times. Over the course of the album, he says it at least 75 times.

The first track on the album features a hidden track. The track can be heard by playing the beginning of track one and then using the rewind/search button to go back 8:49.
