Track Name: Pulling An Imam
I saw your DNA on the carpet
Televisions melted in a fluorescent pool

We are only somewhat distracted
We are only somehow here
We are operating machinery
Our eyes look out but we’re not really there

She pulled an Imam from her pocket
Smoked him her dreams turned bloody violent
Listening to MLK preach peace (peace)
Talk about how easily we’re indoctrinated

We are only somewhat distracted
We are only somehow here
We are operating machinery
Our eyes look out but we’re not really there

“Don’t be so modest [you] you’re not that great” – Golda Meir
Track Name: Don't Say Sh
You don’t know it got a long distant call to get back to
‘d like to chat but gotta sit in the lobby and wait for the limo
Service is fleeting here in the Badlands of family relations
Friendships remain friendships are strained
It can never be the same
What was ever the same?
You don’t know it got a long distant call to get back to

Miles of desert casino casino next to a Walmart
They all look related over the border in Tennessee
They got a house but they might need their stuff out in the yard
Mason jars pet goat’s on the car cinder-block mounted unstrung guitar
Ma drives around at 300 lbs in her Walmart go-cart

What’s more I’ve fallen I can’t get up
What’s more I’ve fallen I can’t get up
Help! I’ve fallen I can’t get up

Hey I’m talkin to you you you you
Hey still talkin to you you you you
Hey we got an RV with a TV and a fridge
You start your diesel it’s 4 a.m. where ya goin?
We we all got K9s after yers you don’t pick up [listen up]

You don’t say sh to me sh
I say sh to you

Why you no pick up after dog
Why you no crean up yard
I no rike coror o your riving room
Why don’t you go talk to a tree?

You don’t say sh to me sh
I say sh on you
Track Name: Eyesore America
Eyesore America place your ad here
Service warm as our biscuits
One beer stands clear
Where will you go when you die
Jesus gawna do a flyby

If I’m hypnotized or unresponsive
Go ahead and pull the plug I’ll be on my way
Assisted suicide’s a dignified escape

Wouldn’t you like to be a Pepper
Have it your way
When it’s time to relax
Free legal consultation
Pregnant? Adopt a highway
Injured? You’re not alone

If I’m hypnotized or unresponsive
Go ahead and pull the plug I’ll be on my way
Assisted suicide’s a dignified escape
Track Name: False Friend
It’s a false friend It’s a false friend

When did you learn to care so much about what they think?
You think they’re looking at you?
You think they care what you do?
When they’re wrapped up in their own stool
They don’t have time for you
So long as you don’t throw them off balance

It’s hard to describe these mixed feelings

I wanted to sing a sad song
But it’s not coming to me

Hear the sirens
See the lights
I see a small crowd gathered here tonight
I see a lady face down on the ground
She’s not coming around
No, she’s not coming around
No more
Track Name: Make Yer Own Way
My obligations as a son
To pick you up are done
Make yer own way now
Track Name: Orange Cones
“Happiness seems like a betrayal of principle without you” – Ian McEwan
Laughs no longer frequent from the gut no more
Gotta find my way out from this feeling down
It’s no place take your shoes off eat your meals stay

The road is closed with orange cones
They wave you to go around
They put you on a country road
The light is strange from the sun
Over you pull exit your car
Looking upwards at the sky
Snaking vessel tentacles
Your mind ask How? ‘stead of Why?

But happiness does return
Though you’re scarred scared
Does return happiness
Even when you’re unprepared
Track Name: Oh Happy Day (Drone Strike)
Oh happy day
Gonna have the filmmaker arrested whose responsible for the death of your son
Gonna have the filmmaker arrested whose responsible for the death of your son

The elephant in the room is somehow invisible
True believers shall not befriend Christians or Jews

Oh happy day
Gonna have the filmmaker arrested whose responsible for the death of your son
Gonna have the filmmaker arrested whose responsible for the death of your son

Peace will then descend on all creation
Like frolicking naked in the gentle Spring rain
We’ll all have Coke having learned to sing in perfect harmony

Drone drone drone
Strike strike STRIKE

La la-la la-la la-la
Track Name: Quote MLK
We see what Sharpie’s deeds have reaped
In your hostile communities
He lay the blame on other men
Some of whom accept this guilt
I am I am not one I am not one
He love the power Sharpie does
Calls you Brutha it’s suspect
Every conflict black vs. white
He pulls the noose around your neck
You black kids never had a chance
You’re standing now upon the deck
He stand with Tawanna criminal
Pulls the lever watch you fall

“In the end you’ll remember not the words of your enem[y], but the silence of your friends” – MLK

Spike Lee say, “If you don’t vote my way we are no longer family”
I know not of another way to interpret what that meant
Some say family before politics ideally
Strange how my extended fam loud flack bloke silent as a clam
Little did they know
Little did they know I did note their silence meant with Spike Lee they did vote

Quote MLK
Track Name: For Robert Dunn
Started off bad
Never did regain composure
Oddity
You and me
Chemistry
Sour
In this strange mix I see
Dark hilarity

Despite your digression I thank you Ross for Robert Dunn

“Almost a whole day without
Making a fool of yourself
Almost a whole day wasted” – Robert Dunn

Defy your expectations
Poet laureate
Snot what you thought
Prejudice
Could’ve played the irritant!
Ever written Haiku?
I have
It’s good
Track Name: 2 K9s (Opening Pee-Mail)
Got 2 K9s
One look like a sphinx
One look like Chewbacca
They’re both Swiss
Flew a long time to get here
We show ‘em America
In our RV with a TV and a fridge
They get burrs in Utah
Pull ‘em from their fur
Red clay blow
Turn a white dog pink
Running donuts in the snow
Swim for a red ball
If we find a river
Or we got a lake
They don’t do well
If they drink the salt water
In the ocean
With the driftwood
And the seagulls
And the dead fish
Rocks on Maine sea coast
With a lighthouse
And the traulers

Got to get on the road
Get off the road
Get on a trail
Use they nose

So much information
Come through they nose
Scent on a trail
Pick up da Kot
Opening pee-mail
Track Name: Shoo Shoo Madre
I am mm hypocrite
I am mm hypocrite
Don’t know what I can do for you
Don’t know what I
Can do for you

Lady got eyes that cry
Woe is woe is me
No matter how I try
To reach you won’t be reached

Wisdom says that you
The first step must be yours
Every trigger dreadful stress
Shoo Shoo madre bottle bitch
Track Name: Get Some Toys
Unfilled
Unfulfilled

Smelled so good but had no taste
The girl was prettier than her face

Premature withdrawal from a Madonna Concert
She looked bored

Thrusting in a waterbed see myself on infrared
Where’s the rest I’ve not been blessed
Guess I’ll use my fist instead

How does it feel to be small Paul?
How does it feel to be homely Natalie?

Un
Filled
Un
Fulfilled

Aw we can’t leave it like that
Let’s get…
Satisfied

Get some toys or other ways of playin
Get some toys or other ways of playin
Track Name: B Be Honest
Guess you learned to lie
A long time ago
To get ahead
Now it’s hard to break
You cover your ass
At what expense
No one trusts you
Not even your dog

When the times call for change Virginia (within ya)
The bearer’s words if ugly may prove true

Boring you thought
To be straight
Lying made you
A momma drama
You believed in
Stereotypes
An artist must starve
A woman must lie

Speak your mind
Or walk on egg shells
I love pussy
But I don’t wanna be one

Scooby Doo
Doobie Doobie Doo
Track Name: Grief
What happened to my youth?
I remember a show store
The original Star Wars poster 77
R2D2 C3PO
Came back from the shoe store
Where were you Pop?
Took us on a houseboat
The Burlington waters of Lake Champlain
A turbulent storm
Pounded the houseboat against the dock
I was trying to tie off
My leg suspended over the side
You picked me up
Saved my 10 year
Old leg

Sleep alone
Oh well rocket’s on fire
When you come back from space
There’s no one to greet you
Wish I could’ve saved you
Like you did me
All I could do was spectate
And watch your agony
Oh those doctors
American medicine
Couldn’t do a goddamn thing to help you
This time

Dead end
Snow falls
Silent
Grief
Track Name: Watered Down Cinema
All your side effects Pharmaceuticals
All your insecurities Americans
Lawyers will get their your money
If you’ve been in an accident

Can’t escape the TV commercials
Edited for TV watered down cinema
Baby
Turn that shit off
You’re killing your mind
Your creativity
What’s worse
You’re killing me
Which is why
I feel the need
To play
Guitar
I need
To play
Guitar
Track Name: Too Late 2 Die Young
Too late to die young
It’s too late to die young

Neptune and crocodile lay dormant
But they always are
‘til the humans start their parades
Show of fertility Mardis Gras
The spilling seed
Naked leg
Behind the torrent the flooded streets
The revelers for lusty beads
The shameless acts from too much drink
Masked bravado
The fertile egg

Too late to die young
It’s too late to die young

Beyond the smells of tourist waste
Is bass-a-saurus Surinck Ray
Twenty years NOLA resident
Like the tide returns
When the tourists went

He’s of the street
Working class
Life’s been unkind but he still stands tall

Too late to die young
It’s too late to die young
Track Name: Shriek Hyena
What point is there to talk about it?
Shrieking
You can’t be heard
The concept: conversation
Goes from mouth to ear from mouth to ear with pauses in between

Time to think
To reflect
Consider
Sometimes reject

Though nothing penetrates your shrieking
Shriek hyena shriek hyena shriek hyena shrieking
Shriek hyena shriek while I am speaking
Shriek hyena shriek while I am seeking

No common ground today
The slaughter goes on
Inner city blues
Politicians everyone
Politicians everyone
Politicians everyone
