"While 2nd Place is a self-proclaimed “sophomore slump,” KISSING KONTEST’s second EP in their series is anything but a slump. The EP continues the theme of its predecessor, 1st Base, with bright keys, sarcastic lyricism, and stark simplicity. KISSING KONTEST proves that three chords and some dazzling creativity can turn a two-song EP into a comprehensive masterpiece; by layering multifaceted melodies, they forge a bubblegum pop with a sour sting that still remains as danceable as ever."

I'M NOT NOT A LOSER

IF LIFE’S NOT A COMPETITION, THEN HOW AM I A LOSER?
AND WHY AM I STILL FEELING STUCK IN SECOND PLACE?
DON’T THEY KNOW I’VE GOT AN EGO? AND I GOTTA FEED IT,
BUT WHY AM I SO HUNGRY WITH SO MUCH ON MY PLATE?

I’M THE APPLE OF EYES AND THE LIGHT OF LIVES
AND I TRY AND TRY AND I TRY AS I MIGHT,
BUT I CAN’T LIVE UP TO MY INTERNAL HYPE,
AND I CAN’T PULL WOOL ON SELF-CRITICAL EYES.

I’M THE TROPHY GENERATION, SO WHERE’S MY CELEBRATION?
HOW CAN YOU EXPECT ME TO FEEL GOOD AT THIS RATE?
I FEEL LIKE LIFE JUST HAS ME STUCK ON YOSHI’S VALLEY,
WHERE I WON’T KNOW HOW I’M DOING ’TIL I FINISH UP THE RACE.

THAT’S ME IN THE CORNER, LOSING MOTIVATION,
I CAN’T EVEN BRING MYSELF TO WRITE A FINAL VERSE.
Track Name: CSP
I CAN'T STOP PARTYING, PARTYING
I CAN'T STOP PARTYING, PARTYING
I’M GOT NO SELF CONTROL, I GOTTA HAVE CAFFIENE
I GOTTA HAVE A LOT OF PRETTY GIRLS AROUND ME.
OH, I CAN'T STOP PARTYING, PARTYING
I CAN'T STOP, PARTYING, PARTYING
I GOTTA HAVE THE CARS, I GOTTA HAVE THE JEWELS
AND IF YOU WAS ME, HONEY, YOU WOULD DO IT TOO

MONDAY TO SUNDAY I HIT ALL THE CLUBS
AND NOW E'RYBODY KNOW ME WHEN I PULL UP
I GOT THE REAL BIG POSSE WITH ME, YEAH I'M DEEP
AND IF YOU LOOKIN' FOR ME I'M IN VIP

JUST FOLLOW THE SMOKE, THEY'RE BRINGING BOTTLES OF THE DEW
AND ALL THE HOMIES IN THE CORNER GET LOOSE
SCREW REHAB I LOVE MY ADDICTION
NO SLEEP, NO SLEEP, I AM ALWAYS ON A MISSION 'CAUSE

I CAN'T STOP PARTYING, PARTYING
I CAN'T STOP PARTYING, PARTYING
I GOTTA LOSE CONTROL, I GOTTA HAVE CAFFEINE
I GOTTA HAVE A LOT OF PRETTY BOYS AROUND ME
OH, I CAN'T STOP PARTYING, PARTYING
I CAN'T STOP, PARTYING, PARTYING
I GOTTA HAVE THE CARS, I GOTTA HAVE THE JEWELS
AND IF YOU WAS ME, HONEY, YOU WOULD DO IT TOO

CAN’T STOP, CAN’T STOP THE PARTYING.
