    Let The Cards Fall

    Let the cards fall
    Let the cards fall where they may
    All I can do, all I can say
    Gotta move to trust my instinct
    And surrender, let my song sing itself
    I am they who admit what they don’t know
    All my friends excitable, they’ll tell you so

    So let the cards fall, and fall where they may
    In checkin’ on our conviction, dick
    We run the shit our own way
    So do as you will, do as you wish
    Follow your bliss on everyday
    Never ask for an advantage
    Let the cards fall where they may, huh

    So let the cards fall, and fall where they please
    Ask me while we’re at it, I do it with ease
    Taking up space is the people who try to hold you back
    But in reality the majority really don’t give jack, huh


    Outside

    Sunshines
    Are you outside
    I am a simpleton by choice not speaking to hear my voice
    Sunshines
    Why are you sleeping
    Gotta get outside

    Cover the ground on foot
    Not hitching around your spur
    Over the river and trough the woods
    I’ve come this far to bring in the goods
    I get high, even when I don’t try
    Let ‘em pass by with a wink to the eye
    I reserve the right to be stoned
    I reserve the right to take it to collect them sums
    I have the right
    Don’t try to be, there’s really no point in you biting me
    I’m glad to see that it’s easy for me to be an MC

    Let me tell you a little story
    Like my dog Bobby, he hated the pool man
    So I tried to play Kotter and make things cool
    And I said just let him smell you, hold out your hand
    He reached it on out, and then bam
    He bit him, he bit him so fuckin’ hard

    Blood was steady gushin’ all over my back yard
    I kept apologizin’, I felt so fuckin’ bad
    The dude was so cool, he didn’t even get mad
    He said man don’t sweat it, that’s the dog’s meaning
    Took some Neosporin and went back to his cleaning

    Thought I had a dream or else it was a movie
    Your mind can have a joint easy like jungle boogie
    $600 freebie and I got my job
    Would you mind come but I got my dog
    Come you can foam the water with the bone
    I wanna tell my mom, ring her on the phone
    Cherry popsicle, icy, cold, freezing
    Loves on his gums now that he is teething
    Got a wee-wee pass, lay them by the door
    Nasty little shits he dropped them on the floor

    Sunshines
    Are you outside
    I am a simpleton by choice
    Not speaking to hear my voice
    Sunshines
    Why are you sleeping
    Gotta get outside


    Gap

    Purified sounds, brush ‘em on like paint
    Teenage dream to work with Ron Saint
    Home he ain’t, we layin’ tracks in Cali
    The dude is excitable like a pep rally
    Since the days of the Eds in the westside
    Keeping it real, got nothing to hide
    Now we are a number, there is none greater
    Take me outside king, yo peace, see ya later

    Let’s step out tonight, all night
    The groove is soothin’
    Let’s step out tonight, all right
    It’s a fellow feelin’ with my friends, once again

    Grape vess soda pop, licorice stick
    Aunt Mary’s summertime backyard picnic
    Did you drink my beer Doug? Yeah I did it
    Don’t tell me to bring you beer
    If you think I won’t sip it
    Swinging on, swinging on jungle gym sets
    Daddy talkin’ bout the horses he bet
    When I got home my friends phoned, hey Holmes

    Let’s step out tonight, all night
    The groove is soothin’
    Let’s step out tonight, all right
    It’s a fellow feelin’ with my friends, once again

    (Eat smoked fish, that is my favorite dish
    Eat smoked fish, that is my favorite dish
    Eat smoked fish, that is my favorite dish
    Eat smoked fish, that is my favorite dish)

    Let’s step out tonight, all night
    The groove is soothin’
    Let’s step out tonight, all right
    It’s a fellow feelin’ with my friends, once again


    Tribute

    This one is dedicated to the excitable ones
    Not the possums playing dead messing with my head
    “X” amount of action, “X” amount of game
    For years again I tell you the same, oh oh ohh

    Gone already
    To the bored of it all type lingo that I’m seein’
    Every single night I’m out
    Bustin’ heads for it
    But yours gets busted right back, lip split and
    I messed up
    But I got back tryin’, don’t bother lyin’ ’bout
    Constant disappointment
    But the fun is in the hunt
    So quit actin’ on a front, yeah
    You’re unmotivated, you’re sorta faded
    But the remedy is not so get on with what you got

    Remember “Lady of Guadeloupe”
    The times my mother made mole and
    After mass we would get home
    The girls running to the phone
    And in my bedroom, the 45 on my record player was
    At the time I never realized how songs
    Haunted the ones that I heard, I played because I wanted
    Drawing on my wall from time to time coolin’
    Making creatures come alive with no schoolin’

    When I’m on the microphone
    The method that I make is much patience
    The method that I make is much patience
    I wait for the beat and then I make sense
    In comin’ in hot forgot, you definitely got no clue
    In comin’ in hot you got, you definitely got so rude
    Boy actin coy but you got nuts like almond joy
    I’ll tell ya, this is a tribute

    No one looks as foolish as the excitable ones
    But then again there’s no one that has this much fun
    “X” amount of action, “X” amount of game
    For years again I tell you the same, oh oh ohhh

    Once I met a man who made nearly no mistakes
    He would never bet on a longshot
    And he’d never bet on a break and
    He’s condescending and talked gossip galore
    But the dude was definently such a bore, hear me now
    I messed up
    But I got back tryin’, don’t bother lyin’ bout
    Constant disappointment
    But the fun is in the hunt
    So quit actin’ on a front, yeah
    You’re unmotivated, you’re sorta faded
    But the real man is not the one hiding behind the gunshot, boom!

    Time travelin through my memories
    There’s a younger Doug gazin’ at the galaxy
    Space trippin’ vato of the stars
    Searchin’ for UFO’s from Neptune and Mars
    Ode to an alien, I know you’re out there
    Cosmic lonely heart, tell me if you care
    I’m listening for your sound, here on the ground
    I’m listening for your sound, here on the ground

    When I’m on the microphone
    The method that I make is much patience
    The method that I make is much patience
    I wait for the beat and then I make sense
    In comin’ in hot forgot, you definently got no clue
    In comin’ in hot you got, you definently got so rude
    Boy actin coy but you got nuts like almond joy
    I’ll tell ya, this is a tribute

    I’m vexing many mofos but i’m wishing you the best
    I keep ’bout half my lyrics and I throw out the rest
    Cuz fly on by, you can if you want to
    The method that makes sense is patience


    Firewater

    Talkin’ shit like shut up, and listen to me
    Because cuttin’ through the crap is my specialty
    Like a bomb, I’m dropping yes, a ton of lead
    You’re trying to figure out the last thing I said
    I’m a redwood, I love to be a tree, yes I’m a druid
    My words are flowing out like a fluid
    Never give in never conform
    I’ll be bustin’ out rhymes in a triplet form

    Dead leaves on the trees in spring
    Cant hear the birds sing
    A light powdered snow on the ground is glistening
    Vipers slither atop a colder ground they quiver
    A crack in the sky snow is falling and inside we shiver
    While I doze I suppose I could get lost
    With a brown skin friend claiming kin to crazy horse
    I stink of vino, my greasy clothes are rancid but
    I tip the bottle back the spirits are in me kid

    Firewater, call it liquid rapture
    Into the flash and flames of my crazy nature
    Firewater, the world’s a mixture
    Of broken liquored people get the picture
    Firewater, call it liquid rapture
    Into the flash and flames of my crazy nature
    Firewater, the world’s a mixture
    Of broken liquored people get the picture

    Whiskey be spittle at the corners of my mouth
    I’m rather liquored, light flickers
    I got the shakes and jitters
    I roll I’m like raging bull bumrushin the show
    Hand to my head sway in the fire i’ve waded into
    All alone except for the whiskey voices
    Whores laugh neon signs flash other choices
    I stagger stumble to toast the past while I mumble
    Slur my song slow porno show marquee words crumble

    Firewater, call it liquid rapture
    Into the flash and flames of my crazy nature
    Firewater, the world’s a mixture
    Of broken liquored people get the picture
    Firewater, call it liquid rapture
    Into the flash and flames of my crazy nature
    Firewater, the world’s a mixture
    Of broken liquored people get the picture

    You’re hangin’ around the house with all your friends steady drinking
    Smoking the green weed and your head is sorta blinking
    You’re going with the flow and everybody is getting plowed
    And the voices and the music and the noise is getting loud
    You got a heavy buzz when seven o’clock rolls around
    So you pile inside the clunker start heading down town
    Only nineteen but you know where you can get it
    So you slide inside the bar and everything is hitting
    By about eleven o’clock, your brain is near dead
    You really cant remember who was the one who said
    Let’s go into the bathroom and meet this guy Chuck
    He’s got a thirty dollar white powder pick me up
    Ten minutes later the whole vibe has changed
    You try for conversation but you know you’re acting strange
    Your eyes are wide open but your smile is gone
    You just keep fiending till the fucking break of dawn


    Dancehall

    You could lose your mind
    Easier than you would like to think
    Your best friend could up and leave you
    Playing tricks and cold deceive you
    Standing there people stare
    Let down by your own mind

    Day of appreciation
    For ways your mind has not yet let you down
    The truth is that we will all go
    Maybe five minutes after the show
    You know you are a shooting star
    A blazing flash then gone

    (Chorus x2) Are we advancing or a collapsing visionary
    Are we really here, are we imaginary
    As my thoughts separates
    Into the many frayed parts
    Torn shattered bits
    My mind falling apart

    What if there was such a thing
    What if there’s such a thing called
    dependence day
    There’s no self congratulation
    Just a day of appreciation
    Quietly humbly
    For things that have not gone wrong

    Imagine the frustration
    Of losing bearing of the simplest thing
    So come with your best and do your worst before
    You can’t remember what you came for

    (Chorus)

    Blazing out the mains
    Hungry flames consume all that I see

    (Chorus x2)


    Bomb the Town

    (SA spoken)
    A magic mushroom and I’m on my way
    And I go into a quiet meditative state
    Invoke 13th ray, the vibration it’ll give you
    a transformation and will serve as initiation
    In the genesis of the solar mine
    Amid the fractals and the combination of the signs
    It’s not hard to find patterns that flow bright
    In the bluest light, now enhanced by your crystal sight
    Deep breathing in and out you’ll resonate
    With the higher frequency your power field rotate
    Yeah, you’re feeling great and on your backside all night
    Keep on drifting into the next life like
    A future primitive lost in a dream
    Until clouds pile up and cool creation’s scene

    When I go back to places where we were
    I see the path of affectation
    It’s easy to get back to a blur
    Of countless inspired revelations

    We’re futuristic and we’re on the way
    so now go into a quiet meditative state
    invoke the 13th ray the vibration
    it’ll give you a transformation
    and will serve as initiation

    First you gotta break with drastic measures
    Then confusion gives way to flash of light
    That moment is the thing I’ll always treasure
    Mediocrity should never get it right but they might

    In the genesis of the solar mind
    amid the fractals and the combinations
    of the signs it’s not hard to find
    patterns that flow bright
    and the bluest light
    now enhanced with your crystal sight

    Never forget
    it will be wicked
    get your ticket
    bomb the town
    with a sound
    shakes the ground
    everybody

    Never forget
    it will be wicked
    get your ticket
    bomb the town
    with a sound
    shakes the ground
    everybody get down

    A mighty stupid set of currents
    To swim through around me now
    A bigger task to hold location
    Then to swim upstream some how

    The art of remaining free
    Is a skill upon itself these days
    The overflowing things for you to see
    Others talk you out of doing your way

    You’ve established some telepathy
    and tech-remote viewing
    so you’re all-knowing right
    answer me how the future will be

    is it the end or just the beginning
    follow me
    First you gotta break with drastic measure
    Then confusion gives way to flash of light
    Next your gonna find blissful pleasure
    In a freedom reigning through blissful foresight

    Do it smoothly
    feel the love let it soothe thee
    send ya to bliss with all the wisdom
    of the sweetest kiss
    world that you know
    sacred temple
    is what you’re given
    receive the medicine

    Never forget
    it will be wicked
    get your ticket
    bomb the town
    with a sound
    shakes the ground
    everybody

    Never forget
    it will be wicked
    get your ticket
    bomb the town
    with a sound
    shakes the ground
    everybody get down

    A mighty stupid set of currents
    To swim through around me now
    A bigger task to hold location
    Then to swim upstream some how

    Never forget
    it will be wicked
    get your ticket
    bomb the town
    with a sound
    shakes the ground
    everybody


    We Do It Like This

    Now look out
    Whatcha say
    It’s time to kick the basics
    Flowing and knowing it’s in your faces
    Sounds good we’re trading up places
    When we fuck it daily I see something that sails me
    From here to infinity it nails me
    To the groove til the suckas improve
    On there so called grooves
    That a just don’t move
    A million ways to fuck it up and one to get it right
    To the best of modern man that keep movin through the night

    Makin funky rhymes in a permanent bliss
    SA and Nicholas and we do it like this
    We work it on out saw something you missed
    SA and Nicholas and we do it like this

    People busy mulling over the worst case scenario
    I just wind it up and let it go
    I don’t dis people I dis ideas
    And when I say dis I mean disagree
    Then we go to the studio and re-up
    Some new tunes and we make some new dubs
    That’s where we grow the gems the pearls
    Take a trip to find there’s another world

    Makin funky rhymes in a permanent bliss
    SA and Nicholas and we do it like this
    We work it on out saw something you missed
    SA and Nicholas and we do it like this

    A battle against time to make use of your minds
    To hook up your drum beats with my fresh rhyme
    To make the best use of our strings and things
    All cylinders go motherfucker we ring (repeat)

    We put that shit on the map
    For everyone to see it son, there it is
    Now we come what you see we be it no comparative
    We can make up a word when just nothin else will fit
    Then we break it on down, that’s it


    What Do You Do

    You had a slick operation
    Til she was taken to the station
    They grilled her on where she scored
    She broke down out your name poured
    Down the highway you soared
    na na na, na na na

    What do you do, I ask you
    When they’re after you, I tell you
    You’re going to go it alone
    You know that you’ll have to leave home

    Two thousand miles to the sea
    A new life with nobody
    Strangers’ faces everywhere
    Medicating your despair
    Feeling that no one cares
    na na na, na na na

    Sometimes plans go as planned
    And you beat the odds that they’ll get you
    It’s a miserable life in demand
    A paranoia you have to get used to
    But they got better things
    To do than to come and look for you
    But then again maybe not
    It’ll drive you crazy

    Now it’s been about a year
    You’d return but for the fear
    Sometimes people get away
    Still it haunts you to this day
    The dealer that got away
    na na na, na na na


    Little Brother

    Oh, hey little brother
    You’ve got so much to discover
    Cant you conceptualize
    What you’re doing to our mother

    Those drugs that you choose
    Leave you left with the blues
    Trust me I’ve been there
    To me it’s old news

    Pending disaster
    You’re heading there faster
    It’s tearing me up
    To know you get so plastered

    Because you’re caught up in the scene
    At the age of nineteen
    Maybe so was I at the age
    But I had a dream

    And those goddamn powdered drugs
    They’ll fill you with doubt
    You’re just getting sucked on up in it
    And you have to break out

    You blacked out on the floor
    You told me, the next day they found you that way
    Those damn medications had your back baby
    It hurt when they took them all away

    You’re feeling so bad
    You’re looking for a place to land
    Help me understand
    How in hell it got so out of hand

    I know that it’s hard
    But you’re risking being permanently scared
    You’re hurting inside
    So you’re flirting with tragedy on the dark side

    Those drugs that you choose
    Leave you left with the blues
    Trust me Ive been there
    To me it’s old news

    Hey little brother
    You messed up another chance
    Sooner or later you must take a stand

    At the edge of it
    All where you begin
    To consume that product to its very end

    How much time is left
    Will you collapse
    Will you confess you’re in a spiritless void
    Spinning into excess

    You blacked out on the floor
    You told me, the next day they found you that way
    Those damn medications had your back baby
    It hurt when they took them all away

    You’re feeling so bad
    You’re looking for a place to land
    Help me understand
    How in hell it got so out of hand, go


    I Like The Way

    I like the way you keep it from me, whoa-oa-oa
    I like the way you move in front of me yeah-ah
    It’s just enough contact to make me come back
    So many other girls just make my mind slack
    I like the way you give it to me yeah-ah

    You’re in front, I’m behind walking down a corridor
    The way you’re moving yourself, it make me want you more

    I like the way you keep it from me, yeah-ah

    Baby are we ready, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah-ah
    Tell me can we rock steady, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah-ah

    I like the way you keep it from me, whoa-oa-oa
    I like the way you move in front of me yeah-ah
    It’s just enough contact to make me come back
    So many other girls just make my mind slack
    I like the way you give it to me yeah-ah

    Tight jean and the seams snake around your body type
    The way they hug, the way they snug, the way they fit you right

    I like the way you keep it from me, yeah-ah

    My rods and cones have a mind of their own
    They keep staring at you and wanna get you alone

    You got that sun dress mesh, yes, that’s the best
    With a flower two piece underneath so fresh

    I get a head full of bees when you’re in the vicinity
    I cannot stop but thinking about infinity

    I get a thrill, you kill me with vernacular
    Speak your mind, I find it kind of spectacular

    I asked her if she would come away with me
    And she said are you crazy? I said I must be.
    No you know, now we both know
    I guess you’re right, we should just take it slow
    I was hooked on a feeling
    You’re so right to put on the brakes
    That’s how I know that you got what it takes

    I like the way you keep it from me, whoa-oa-oa
    I like the way you move in front of me yeah-ah
    It’s just enough contact to make me come back
    So many other girls just make my mind slack
    I like the way you give it to me yeah-ah

    Baby are we ready, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah-ah
    Tell me can we rock steady, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah-ah


    Get Down

    I got this great idea
    About why I got stuck in reverse
    I was so out of control
    It just got worse
    I hope you have more sense than I
    Side step the curse
    I don’t know just what came first
    In the spiral
    Threatening my survival
    It’s come time to get down…

    It’s time to get down, boots to the ground
    No, I won’t stop ’til I hear the bell sound
    Keep your head up ‘cuz the truth just cut
    No quick fix when your caught in a rut
    What I gotta do to get right sized
    Think I’m despised when I look through the eyes of another
    Not mine to discover
    What the next man thinks is none of my fucking buisness

    I then I think what is this?
    Illusion that I can fix
    You name it. Hey
    The story stays the same
    Any trouble you can name
    Just go straight into accept it
    You name it. Hey
    It’s time to get down

    To the ground
    So simple yet profound
    In the now, that’s why we’re here

    Inspiration I’ve been waiting all my life
    I’m set free, it happened
    I won’t look back and think twice
    How it’s meant to be
    Something’s happened
    A sudden slap in the right place
    In my face, I thank you
    You always came through for me
    It’s how it’s meant to be

    Gonna get down because I can’t stay high
    All of the time, ’cause I see the sign
    So I realign with an open mind
    Adamant and circumvent
    I get by every night and day
    Get by with my comfort way
    An open space to an open way
    I just unwind, I just unwind

    I then I think what is this?
    Illusion that I can fix
    You name it. Hey
    The story stays the same
    Any trouble you can name
    Just go straight into accept it
    You name it. Hey
    It’s time to get down
    To the ground
    So simple yet profound
    In the now, that’s why we’re here

    Inspiration I’ve been waiting all my life
    I’m set free, it happened
    I won’t look back and think twice
    How it’s meant to be
    Something’s happened
    A sudden slap in the right place
    In my face, I thank you
    You always came through for me
    It’s how it’s meant to be


    Sun Come Through

    Running the ship on an ego
    Shutting the mind and closed out
    People would ask where did he go
    As the boat sunk down
    Lie to yourself it’s so tragic
    You become a wreck in slow mo
    Breaking it down ’til you’re all alone

    I’m in the center of a labyrinth
    I feel lost I feel imprisoned
    Tell me there’s an end
    I need some oxygen
    How did I get here
    Help me make it out of here

    I can see it all now clear at last, the fog has lifted
    If I only knew
    All came it focus at once, it’s such a gift
    If I knew the truth
    As long as I’ve been here never could I steer clear of myself
    Think what I could do
    Sun come through

    What if I’d kept it together
    And never to bounce off the ground
    It couldn’t have got any better
    With anyone around

    That’s how I got here
    That’s how it got so clear

    I can see it all now clear at last, the fog has lifted
    If I only knew
    All came it focus at once, it’s such a gift
    If I knew the truth
    As long as I’ve been here never could I steer clear of myself
    Think what I could do
    Sun come through

    I’m finally home
    I see a light house
    I don’t have to roam
    It’s not all black out
    I can see it all now
    Out of nowhere came a clue
    Truth I hid the truth I hid from me
    Hit the skids I hit the skids only
    To find a light to light my way home
    Sun come through

    I lost it all and all the was left
    Beat of my heart, air of my breath
    Better late than never

    I’m finally home
    I see a light house
    I don’t have to roam
    It’s not all black out
    I can see it all now
    Out of nowhere came a clue
    Truth I hid the truth I hid from me
    Hit the skids I hit the skids only
    To find a light to light my way home
    Sun come through
    Sun come through


    How Long has It Been

    How long has it been?
    Since you let me in
    I need it yesterday
    Just always been that way, oh

    I’m excitable to a fault
    But that’s my fault
    Feels like time grinds to a halt
    Seconds assault
    Rush the earth on by
    Planet, spin!
    Tell me just how long’s it been?

    How long has it been?
    Since you let me in
    I need it yesterday
    Just always been that way,

    There are no abstracts
    The metaphysics between us
    Are showing us patience
    Alert and attentive
    In the white star silence
    We get out of the harness
    The farthest but we
    Make it through the darkness

    How long has it been?
    Since you let me in
    I need it yesterday
    Just always been that way

    But when I get back to the present
    Back in the moment
    I’m so grateful that you stayed
    The order of the day
    Bliss no delay, play
    See that everything is so much more than okay
    Feel the rhythm, feel the rhythm play-ay

    How long has it been?
    Since you let me in
    I need it yesterday
    Just always been that way

    How long has it been
    How long has it been

    Summer of Love

    I thought about my scene today
    And I’ve finally got the words to say
    The truth is cutting like a knife
    Gonna use it to cut away my strife
    The grass is green and the sky is blue
    My head is clear and my thoughts are true, yeah
    That’s what I’m sayin’

    Callin’ out young and old
    We got a thing that can’t be sold, yeah
    The time that takes to rise above
    In the summer of love

    It’s a summer
    It’s a summer
    It’s a summer of love, I say

    I wake up each day to the sun
    And it’s hard to chose what to do for fun
    A blissful world surrounds me
    And my brothers and sisters love is always free
    Oh, don’t you know that I’ve waited my whole life just to show
    What’s inside and let my love flow
    That’s what I’m sayin’

    Callin’ out young and old
    We got a thing that can’t be sold, yeah
    The time that takes to rise above
    In the summer of love

    It’s a summer
    It’s a summer
    It’s a summer of love, I say

    The colors blend as the prism divides
    Get a chance join the prison inside
    The colors blend down the prism divide
    Get a chance join the prison inside
    We can’t say we came from the sun
    We can’t say we came from the sun
    This is the summer of unity, uh-oh

    A rickity dance so gimme a chance
    To take off my pants and play
    I take up the time to make up a rhyme
    And give me the sign to say
    Happy in haste, but we’re crystal in sight
    I choose that race we kick down, right

    The colors blend as the prism divides
    Get a chance join the prison inside
    The colors blend as the prism divides
    Get a chance join the prison inside
    Oh, I say by the power vested in me
    It is the summer of love

    It’s a summer
    It’s a summer
    It’s a summer of love, I say

    H to the E to the X to the U to the M
    I’m Hexum, I always seem to vex them
    Even when I really don’t mean to
    But I’m a brick house and you’re a lean to

    I kick the positivity like a shipwreck on a raft
    In a sea of negativity it covers them half
    Half of the world, the figure is intact
    Which way will you have an impact?

    Come back to your bro, do what your soul
    But when you’re in the mode just flow
    I stick to the brick of the house of the funk
    And the swing and the vibe of the reggae hip hop

    Sing it for the people not the chaser of the steeple
    And whatever you do don’t stop
    I come and drop a clue from me to you
    Like Fantasy Island Chad’s got one tattoo

    Miles I’m drivin’ in the mach with mad
    Not unlike a box I am, endore how fox I am
    Inferior spinning is my hand
    I see a man like me stand

    Between mirrors and seem myself go all in lieu of them
    Flowing, I didn’t know my soul dig
    Becomes the body of another one
    Constellation, the mirror is such a simple above collection

    And the mic down in my eye
    Today we’re taking out Paris or say
    Of the lands heavy spirit of ill descending
    Oh my God I made a mess haul
    See mercury fall from hands flung
    Red, super and deadly as I step into an outer sea

    This is your world, you can be anything
    People look at me and think I know just what I am doing
    But half of the fucking time, I do not have a clue and
    In any given situation I always say stupid things
    Not as bad as P-Nut, but he’s cool just the same
    Norwegian, Scottish, Irish, and Mexican
    And on the drums is the one Chad Sexton

    Super phat beats that you just can’t fuck with
    Doing the type of shit, gonna have a good run
    With the stupid motherfuckers and those party going thieves

    This song will be stuck in your head
    This song will be stuck in your head
    This song will be stuck in your head
    This song will be stuck in your head

    Hope you didn’t mind me putting it there
    Hope you didn’t mind me putting it there

    Sometimes I like to veg
    Get inside my head
    Dissipate into the silence of the emptiness
    Pink tulips, be Jesus, the fish faces
    Beneath the constellation of bright oranges
    Images of mine a manifest no doubt
    The universal brush is what I use to paint throughout
    Now this L.A. shine
    Cali inspired minds
    Drift along with song
    And take my time, my time

    Hope you didn’t mind me putting it there
    Hope you didn’t mind me putting it there

    Guess I drop this
    Get off this is my conscious
    My objects worn to the dance floor of my soul ship
    Many heads from the way back have rocked that spot
    So we stopped and dropped
    We bring the music
    Feel the Cali quake
    Mistakes though hour shakes
    Never had the waste of mind
    Of a time to see sun break
    Of the worry disappearing
    I’ll be far gone
    Disembark on
    Materializing for a view in slow motion

    What is your deal?
    How do you feel?

    Whoa
    What is your deal?
    How do you feel?


    Writer’s Block Party

    It never gets easy
    And that’s the fun
    In a matter of a day it comes around like the sun
    It’s a backlash
    And a backlash backlash
    I reserve judgment to pick through the trash
    Of artists that didn’t get their props
    Digging through the bins at the record shops
    Might as well find your own favorites
    Cuz in the music biz no one really knows shit
    Go on

    Those that can’t do it surely fucking will
    And those that throw might try to teach that skill
    Those that can’t teach know will never rise
    Above the sweetness that they criticize

    If someone enjoys your art that’s a reason to live
    And if you gotta gift then you know that you gotta give
    If someone digs your art that’s a reason to live
    And if you gotta gift then you know that you gotta give

    Believe that
    Are you with that
    The content of getting on down
    To the music
    Twist the effects is the ever present Swami
    And like the ellipse of Yoni
    Mixing scotch with saki

    That’s all I want
    Looking for something to stop me
    Getting on down
    The trigger blows
    It’s a writer’s block party
    That’s all I want
    Looking for something to stop me
    Getting on down
    The trigger blows
    It’s a writer’s block party

    No props for those that don’t give props
    When respect due I give it up non-stop
    Big up around the world to all the positives
    So many sad people don’t even want to live
    Best believe they wanna take you down with them
    Ruining it for you, if you’re ever given
    Professional cynics let me hear your band
    Let’s hear you make a rhyme, where are your fans
    You didn’t put us here and you don’t have a sound
    Rocking coast to coast before there ever was a town
    Like playing my guitar and that’s really all that matters
    Say what you will but the vibe is getting phatter

    That’s all I want
    Looking for something to stop me
    Getting on down
    The trigger blows
    It’s a writer’s block party
    That’s all I want
    Looking for something to stop me
    Getting on down

    Someday
    You’ll wake
    Realize everything connects to you

    Lemming

    Listen up
    Cuz’ this is universal
    This is not a drill
    This is not rehearsal
    I cannot tell if it’s true
    You seem so honest and sick
    And it’s no trick
    I gotta know
    I gotta, gotta bust through
    I’m on a mission
    And it is a must, you
    You gotta knack
    A course, a tack
    And everyone you meet just trusts you

    And like a lemming to the sea, you lead me
    I think we’re swimming but it can be deceiving
    You crash down to rocks, your fall not long
    But you’re only a fool for believing

    Lost my contemplation
    Should I answer it?

    So what do you call a girl who trips like that?
    You call her history
    Huh huh huh history
    Leaving no mystery
    Had to leave

    And like a lemming to the sea, you lead me
    I think we’re swimming but it can be deceiving
    You crash down to rocks, your fall not long

    I think we’re swimming but it can be deceiving
    You crash down to rocks, your fall not long

    When you called my house
    You must have slipped a card
    Everything changed, man
    Wagging like a dog
    A tale of two reggae MC’s
    Switching up styles
    Saying what they please, uh

    Keep it going now

    Stopped by deception
    And I learned my lesson
    I’ll never ever do it again, no
    Stopped by deception

    Seal The Deal

    Now that I know what it’s like to fall freely
    I can taste blood for the ones who I envy
    Trying to make it right, they won’t catch me
    Now that it’s gone, just watch what I will do

    Watch me break
    Watch me gently breaking both our hearts
    Watch me gently breaking
    Watch me gently breaking our hearts

    Now that I’ve sealed the deal
    I don’t know how to feel
    Now that I know that it’s for real
    Just how am I supposed to feel

    What do you do when your mind won’t reconcile
    With the thing your heart wants it to part by a mile
    Trying to make them ride like a summit
    Neither one will give in so on down you plummet

    Watch me fake
    Watch me faking that I know just what to do
    Watch me plainly faking
    Meanwhile I drive a stake in our hearts

    Now that I’ve sealed the deal
    I don’t know how to feel
    Now that I know that it’s for real
    Just how am I supposed to feel

    Now that I’ve sealed the deal
    I don’t know how to feel
    Now that I know that it’s for real
    Just how am I supposed to feel

    Time Is Precious

    Watching the ice melt between us
    Just faster than grass grows
    It’s not the best that we’ve seen us
    But nothing else I’d have chose

    Reminds me of a time
    When anything could have come
    Anything could have happened
    What a fantastic feeling

    Time is precious as you say it is
    I wanna know that we didn’t miss
    It goes by quickly you’ll soon find out
    I won’t go down
    Time is precious as you say it is
    I wanna know that we didn’t miss
    It goes by quickly you’ll soon find out

    When you fight to resist
    Emotion with a fist
    An irresistible force will always
    Prevail

    The fortress goes crumbling down
    Around you where you stand
    What was once strong mortar
    Is now a pile of sand

    Time is just as precious as you say it is
    I wanna spend it and know that we didn’t miss
    I’ve dodged so many bullets that I’m careful now
    I won’t go down
    Time is just as precious as you say it is
    I wanna spend it and know that we didn’t miss
    I’ve dodged so many bullets that I’m careful now

    From reckless to recluse
    And sometimes back again
    Left wondering what’s the use
    Of a life of mischief spent

    Makes cool the desert sun
    The piece of mind that you gave me
    Absolve me for things I’ve done
    Only that can, only that can save me

    Time is just as precious as you say it is
    I wanna spend it and know that we didn’t miss
    I’ve dodged so many bullets that I’m careful now
    I won’t go down
    Time is just as precious as you say it is
    I wanna spend it and know that we didn’t miss
    I’ve dodged so many bullets that I’m careful now


    Into the Flame

    Throw the matches
    On the carpet
    Just to see if her fire is started
    One by one
    They just go out
    Forever black circles reminding my doubt
    Take the pain
    Oh it feels like pleasure to me
    I burn myself
    Oh a place where you can see

    This is what we do
    You’re hurting me
    I’m hurting you
    The border between love and hate
    We cross it again and again and again

    Into the flame
    Into the flame
    I jump into the flame
    And I know I’ll get out again

    Into the flame
    Into the flame
    I jump into the flame
    And I know I’ll get out again

    It’s hard to keep hope
    Shocked by the wickedness
    I can’t see how I will ever get out this mess
    I see that you don’t care
    And I care less than you
    I take it out on myself
    That’s what’s left to do
    I can’t believe
    Oh the shit that I’ve been through
    Somehow I live
    Oh to give a piece to you

    There’s a hole in you
    Where all your words are slipping through
    Burning out can’t understand
    The reasons brought on you brought on you brought on you

    Into the flame
    Into the flame
    I jump into the flame
    And I know I’ll get out again

    Into the flame
    Into the flame
    I jump into the flame
    And I know I’ll get out again

    Into the flame
    Into the flame
    I jump into the flame
    And I know I’ll get out again

    Into the flame
    Into the flame
    I jump into the flame
    And I know I’ll get out again


    Stealing My Girl

    I want to thank you for stealing my girl away
    You did a favor for me
    OK I admit it
    It didn’t go down that way
    But my excuse to be free
    I don’t know what’s the problem with me
    I guess I ask for a clue
    It would be better
    If I just took the blame honestly
    Instead of pointing to you
    Instead of blaming it on you

    Where did all our plans go
    They just flew right out the window
    I don’t know why I act this way
    I’d like to hear what you have to say
    When was it the vision died
    I woke up one day and the well had dried
    I don’t know why you acted that way
    You don’t want to hear what I have to say

    There are days I thought were just too good
    Another time right there I knew where we stood
    The house cooled like you knew it would
    You saw it coming you could
    We were young, and we were unafraid
    Where was I when you were there and you gave
    I was gone when the deal was made
    One day will oblong way

    You were gone from the center of my world
    Moments on and I’m out with the next girl
    Is that the script of my life well I don’t know
    That’s just the way it goes
    Why did I paint a picture of your faults
    In the wound and I wound up with more salt
    Why do I gotta come out like a rose
    That’s just the way it goes

    Where did all our plans go
    They just flew right out the window
    I don’t know why I act this way
    I’d like to hear what you have to say

    Waiting for the phone to ring
    But when I hear nothing
    Then all I want is to reach your consciousness
    Clear the house of reminders
    Dead reasons floating by words
    Seems I forget how we ended up in this mess

    When was it the vision died
    I woke up one day and the well had dried
    I don’t know why you acted that way
    You don’t want to hear what I have to say
    Where did our plans go


    Weeks of Saturdays

    Never knew
    I had it so good
    I’m ablaze
    In a week of Saturdays
    Cuz nobody can come between
    This moment here and me
    Suddenly in harmony
    With everything I see
    I’m ablaze
    In a week of Saturdays
    Never knew
    I had it so good

    I’m on fire
    Much like a low desire
    I see the music in you
    You keep it pullin’ you
    Slipping it off
    Taking it off
    Making it bump till the juice is gone
    I’m a traveling man
    Do as I can
    Doing it like when we first began
    Said doing it like when we first began
    On Saturday

    Never knew
    I had it so good
    I’m ablaze
    In a week of Saturdays
    Reminisce about the time
    I would be fine if I could get a little
    So much from the run around
    Happy I was in the middle
    Love the land couldn’t stand
    Stacked up on each other
    Everyone on top of one another
    I’m ablaze
    In a week of Saturdays
    Never knew
    I had it so good

    I’m on fire
    Much like a low desire
    I see the music in you
    You keep it pullin’ you
    Slipping it off
    Taking it off
    Making it bump till the juice is gone
    I’m a traveling man
    Do as I can
    Doing it like when we first began
    Said doing it like when we first began
    On Saturday

    Aw I never knew what I fell into
    Some don’t agree sincerity
    Too bad for them but they won’t get me
    Reminisce about the time
    I would be fine if I could get a little
    So much from the run around
    Happy I was in the middle
    I would miss a time like this
    It’s a week of Saturday
    Saturday
    Saturdays


    Simplify

    I simplify
    The reason why
    And when I miss I slip the abyss
    The sort of tale
    Dripped into pale
    The distance fade in the imprints
    Bliss binge
    Saying nonsense
    Went on and on
    The wrong attitude
    Recompense messed up again
    How can I make it up to you

    Hail, hail
    The rest to feel
    The sentence making a difference
    Expose the highs and lows
    Get all from that which I know

    The risk of life (Simplify my life)
    Is to clear our time away (In time away)
    We fill up our minds (We fill our minds)
    Just like our day (Just like our day)
    This moment is a gift (Moments a gift)
    That’s why its called the present (Called the present)
    In routine we drift (In routine we drift)
    Our time is spent (Our time is spent)

    I simplify
    What didn’t apply
    It could have taken forever
    I wanna try
    To liberate life
    Later’s better than never
    Vacate no destination
    I rode from home
    Setting out all alone
    This is my uncluttered life
    If not now, then why

    All in
    The way to win
    He told me to try it again
    Who knew it was up to you
    I guess I’ll just give it a spin

    The risk of life (Simplify my life)
    Is to clear our time away (In time away)
    We fill up our minds (We fill our minds)
    Just like our day (Just like our day)
    This moment is a gift (Moments a gift)
    That’s why its called the present (Called the present)
    In routine we drift (In routine we drift)
    Our time is spent (Our time is spent)

    The risk of life (Simplify my life)
    Is to clear our time away (In time away)
    We fill up our minds (We fill our minds)

    Disc 3

    Welcome (Pre-production)

    Welcome to this groove, you can move right
    We gonna take you higher (higher)
    Not caught in the quagmire (‘mire)
    I can’t survive on a stupid nine to five
    I’d rather be poor, writin’ tunes, livin’ on a commune
    Kickin’ it with my brothers (brothers)
    And significant others (others)
    Life in pursuit of money, uh huh, we think it’s funny
    The only thing that money it could ever bring for me
    Would be some gifts for my friends
    Follow me now, trips for my family
    The only thing I love is freedom (freedom)
    The people around me, I need them (I need them)
    I’d like to buy the world a Coke, but like I said, I said
    You could never get me interested in dreams of wealth myself
    My birthday happens to land on April 12th, whack

    A Coney Island of the mind it’s mine
    I swipe the sweets, strip the beats in the sunshine
    Loco homes I stroll because I’m thinking
    A tone poem alone is love medicine
    Then the demon, spring revolution in my spirit
    Here it is and I will kill with it

    Traveling head spinnin’ from the medicine
    Illusions fadin’ out and comin’ on again
    Unwind your blind mind, find entire minutes abstract
    The tract of sight day breaking in it
    Doles out my share of the world, ocean and sun
    Rising with a whirling motion (yeah)

    I fought, kicked and screamed my way to getting born
    Now I feel worn and I say come on
    The night won’t save anyone
    Won’t you roam, we’ve grown so we can write again
    Our soul select its own way for the travellin’
    We’re here, we’re breathing and we wanna keep our blood running
    So we’re gonna keep gunning ’til the next homecoming
    I like the boogie to the bang bang boogie
    Say up jump the boogie to the bang bang come on

    Feels So Good (Pre-production)

    Well everybody got opinion that’s loud and unbending
    I spend my time healing and mending together
    It’s a question of whether live positive, well I give
    P-Nut is a brother that’s always got a girlfriend
    I say the lyrics that’ll put you in a whirlwind
    SA has the wisdom of a Noble Laureate
    I’m down for our days of glory
    It’s easy to do when you’re up with Sexton
    A rhythmatic genius churnin’ out the next one
    But you know bro I flow in this circumstance
    You’ll get your chance

    Payback is a mission
    To the chump ass fucks slammin’ on us but we rock on
    Deriding on us derision
    Sendin’ you a voice now we’re sending you a vision
    And those who fought me they’ll say taught me
    Everything I know, I go off
    When I hear that chit, chat, bullshit!

    In your face
    And it feels so good
    In your face, that’s right
    Feels so good

    Go SA
    Trip this shit get up on the tipness
    Don’t sweat or let it set once you grab it
    Come and get some to have and to flaunt
    Know about it know I got the news if you want
    I pocket I lock it I sock it your mind I rock it
    Shell fucking shocked it maybe I groove dammit I know it
    Fucking up the truth that’s how I show it
    In the half light Ese’ sounds Nicks a night light
    I’m rappin’ he’s snappin’ on
    Something you might like now
    Don’t frown if I chose to
    Cut it up brothers you can’t take it with you

    I get retarted now that I started you know
    A condition which I keep closely guarded
    Like the kind buds you know my scene
    My team thinks these things supreme
    But to the weasels
    Who try to bring us down but in reality
    It makes you look like a clown
    Too bad cause we’ll be sittin’ in the sun
    And choose a rocky ass path smoke

    In your face, that’s right
    And it feels so good
    In your face
    Feels so good
    Yo P-Nut, beat that thing

    Want you on the mic Nicholas
    Hey, get this my stream of consciousness is a sea
    Much like Bukowski with a rage
    Speaking to the page beasts in the cage
    Jumping off the stage, diving
    Thriving, striving, for a better day SA

    Beat back by flesh shattered doors
    Bragging fists to the sky we’re feelin’ high
    Yes to live and die

    Just take a moment to have a fit once in a while
    Ya know, ya know
    I do it daily and like it but that’s my style, here I go
    In your face (and down your throat)
    And it feels so good (aw yeah)
    In your face (and down your throat)
    And it feels so good (that’s all)


    Paradise (Pre-production)

    Everything you do it comes back to you whatever it may be
    If it isn’t one thing rest assured that something
    Will come back and pay you for your deed
    A shortcut’s a self defeating means (self defeating means)
    If you cannot do it clean you’ll never reach your reward (never reach your reward)
    And when the day is done, what you receive is the sum
    Of what you took out, from what you put in

    Times deep in a dream seem a veiled realm
    Shadows what we think and feel is real
    Times in our tribe feel the vibe when we thrive
    We have no fear of death it’s no fear of life

    I can’t forget you and our version of paradise
    I can’t forget you and our version of paradise

    Everything you do it comes back to you whatever it may be
    What you did as a devil, or what you did as an angel
    The favor returns itself somehow
    If you take my money I’ll buy you a drink and you’ll see
    That no one rides for free, no one
    Afraid of what I said then your mind is stricken
    I’m wearing my heart sleeveless
    And I’m always up for kickin’
    This is my favorite city pity everywhere the enemy

    From the beginning serious history
    Nothing’s ever given, no one rides for free
    From the beginning’s radiant energy,
    Music is what I need to keep our sanity

    I say we fear no evolution stand up musical revolution
    Follow me now when I say we can never stop
    In we never give cuz this is how we breathe and live
    And some of them whine and some of them bitch
    They cannot do it we never switch
    We do it for ourselves and we do it for you
    If you don’t like it well I hope you do

    I’ve got to be honest (I’ve got to be honest)
    I’ve got to be honest (I’ve got to be honest)

    I can’t forget you and our version of paradise
    I can’t forget you and our version of paradise
    I can’t forget you and our version of paradise
    I can’t forget you and our version of paradise


    Homebrew (Pre-production)

    Now I know fools get their own when they chit chat
    Haven’t heard yet, but you can bet I’m not with that
    With that talk, with the pussy walk
    I struck a bird, you heard, absurd, word to the fact
    I’m a cat, nippin’, sippin’ on the flask
    Passin’ it, talkin’ shit, but only if you’re an ass
    In front of me cuz you could run from me but
    In the end, revenge send ends to the defendant
    I can’t get caught in the spiral
    Cuz every bit of energy, it goes to my survival
    Out my way, I’m a flicka flacka blotter
    Ya try to find a weakness, but the shit keeps gettin’ harder

    Fourth of July
    With Lucy in sky
    I remember pine trees and the coat of many colors
    I was nineteen
    I’d do anything
    Shit like that now scares me, but I’d like to do it again
    It was Independence Day
    I’ve seen the other side and I say
    Oh, I’ve been insane
    And I won’t ever be the same

    As we flow we heed on times
    First to flow, Nick, oh my brother, devine
    And then I rise
    Here’s an ill kid stylin’ like an eclectic
    Steps from darkness, his body electric
    A drone buzzes the air, a cracklin’ tone
    Then boomin’ like thunder in a cosmic jungle
    Death defyin’ like Evil Knievel
    Words that will wobble awkwards and evil
    Cuz he flow and rock the hardest of the crowds
    A marvel pow, how you like me now
    I’ve returned the kiss of death, the last Damien
    From the abyss, I guess eternal alien
    Now famished from pathless ways, I’ma do damage
    To the wack MCs, I know you can’t stand this
    Right about now, get down, I’m the annihilator
    Rockin’ with the rhythm of my rhyme detonator

    Fourth of July
    With Lucy in sky
    I remember pine trees and the coat of many colors
    I was nineteen
    I’d do anything
    Shit like that now scares me, but I’d like to do it again
    It was Independence Day
    I’ve seen the other side and I say
    Oh, I’ve been insane
    And I won’t ever be the same


    Offbeat Bare-Ass (Pre-production)

    Any different people can apply to drop the funk
    It’s not a country club review board steady talkin junk
    Many people would have it others go out and grab it
    Some trip over roots and say fuck it I’m sunk
    I put it in a limerick and kick the slick nick verbs
    I’m the one who scores the herb
    When we’re on the road P-Nut rolls it up
    Throw me a joint on stage, what’s up
    I will tell a cop that I know my fucking rights
    And we can match wits all night for real
    He said if I had nothing to hide
    Then of course I wouldn’t mind if he looked through our ride
    Man, no, uh, I’d really rather you didn’t
    And no we don’t have guns hidden
    We stood there for a while I continued to decline
    Firmly, I didn’t lose my mind
    I didn’t let him break me he’s just another human
    Not a bit of shame in what we were doin’ that day
    He couldn’t make us stay
    We had our shit together it doesn’t matter whether
    We sport the dread locks or the shaved head
    Or if we have a sticker from the Dead
    I said a better verse rehearsed about the roughneck curse
    Last week I keep an even keel and bow in place
    And face the music every minute (whoa)

    Never could see my homey comin’ ’til he passed
    Funky gas by my way all the day I couldn’t laugh
    Oh by now I’m chill with it, bare ass in my face
    I’m ok but Chad’s like “Uh-uh no he isn’t”
    So I proceed to hear him get loose with the
    Fartin’ all over my face sometimes my tummy
    He fucked with my flow although I thought it funny
    I probably wouldn’t care if I smoked more kind bud
    But that wouldn’t do me shit cuz then he’d fuck me more up
    Crazy ill and chillin’ rude but I’ze a real cool dude
    He didn’t believe the day would come
    When he would get his too
    But then one day right in front of his face I got him
    He looked over said “God damn get me some water”
    The one time I hadn’t wasted ’til I got mine
    Smeared his nose with my armpit funk slime
    So you get it the picture just how sick we were then
    But before I jet “Hey yo Chad sniff my finger man”
    Aw that motherfucker stunk

    I can see a lot of people who feel like I do
    I can see a lot of people who feel like I don’t
    I go on step lightly even when I’m heavy
    High jump the slumps open up for the Revy Horton Heat
    Sweet what am I displayin’ forgot what I was sayin’
    I know I must be layin’ a pipe you got a gripe
    With the way that I get high Graffix bong sing along with a cry of a
    Mandatory sentence for a crime with no victim
    When everybody knows jail terms should be picked in
    Order of the pain that they cause (you know)
    Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law
    Until you violate the rights of another
    Respect the space of your sister and your brother
    The war on drugs may be well intentioned
    But it falls fucking flat when you stop and mention
    The overcrowded prisons where a rapist gets paroled
    To make room for a dude who has sold
    A pound of weed to me that’s a crime
    Here’s to good people doin’ time y’all

    Bare ass, yeah, bare ass, yeah
    Bare ass, yeah, bare ass, yeah


    Six (Pre-production)

    You know patience pushing a dream
    Brings my demons to life
    Songs are vacations, our soul salvation
    Will you suspend your disbelief, I’d like to be the thief
    That steals that jaded necklace
    That you’re always wearing, yo
    I’d take that thing and with my knife I’d start paring so
    Chop, chop, piece, piece and send it to the raiders of LA
    There are so many, this land of plenty
    The things we lack straight square within our grasp

    Whatever you do, whatever you think
    Whether you’re brown or you’re pink
    I think not thinking’s better ’bout it when you stop to think
    The jaded ones will wither while we optimistic grow
    I settle that a bet’ll let a large amount so

    Indulge me just for a minute, imagine no one holdin’ out
    All trying for peace, my brothers down, some others down
    It happens slow, think you should know
    The direction that the world go, peace

    The number six to make them feel like men
    They one up us cuz we’re much too much for them, ok
    The method to the mischief’s over there then
    Psych, shazam, we strike with the lightnin’
    Through space we move and emit an ill tracer
    We’re set to light your world, kid, we’re your maker
    Check it, our karma, plus the avant garder
    Style of our sect, wise to ways comes to wreck

    Whatever you do, whatever you think
    Whether you’re brown or you’re pink
    (While the masses mill around curse in anguish)
    I think not thinking’s better ’bout it when you stop to think
    (311 stompin’ ’em down with the quickness)
    The jaded ones will wither while the optomistic grow
    (We see all the crews that be comin’ around now)
    I settle that a bet will get our sweet-ass style down
    (Makin’ they notes to get our sweet-ass style down)

    Fending off the foes that try to shut us down
    Like the warrior souls we are we never give in
    What we call is dope, we know will come around
    Chill in southern Cali, y’all, that’s how we livin’

    We spend our lives learning
    If you like learning, life is large
    It could never be only the ups
    And the downs will always come around, yeah yeah
    Like a drive through Estes park, you savor the sun
    But when the clouds come, make animals


    Lose (Pre-production)

    I can see it now, have to show you how
    The funny thing is that we couldn’t have it any other way
    Still it kills me when we say
    Though all we’ve been through,
    All the songs that I’ve sung for you
    We both know I’m gonna lose you

    I hate to be alone
    There comes a time to reap what you’ve sewn
    Though all we’ve been through,
    All the songs that I’ve sung for you
    We both know I’m gonna lose you

    Let’s think of all the good times
    Instead of wish we could times
    So much better that way, yeah
    This is what I ask for, this is what I deserve
    Be careful what you ask for

    Let’s think of all the good times
    Instead of wish we could times
    So much better that way, yeah

    Activate and attune yourself with meditation
    And green plants they’ve got mad life they’re sentient
    They’re beautiful as you and they like to dance

    Everything we do we gotta come original
    Put your hand up in the air and prepare for battle
    Sit upon the rhythm like a tire upon a rim
    We do it non-stop and then we do it again
    Some of them whine and some of them bitch
    They can not do it never switch
    Coming up from the heart and
    Delivered with a wild pitch
    Sit up on top the rhythm like a wild stallion
    This is the ruling system


    Freeze Time (Pre-production)

    I’d like to stay here just like this
    It’s just a momentary bliss
    That’s all we can hope for
    That’s a reason to cope for
    This life, this life and no more

    You will be immortal man
    One in the hand
    You will know exactly then
    What you have
    You found the cure
    And Morse codes for rapture
    Get with your rhythm
    Get with your nature

    The moment’s running down the mountain
    It can be captured from a fountain
    Sometimes all that it can be
    Absence of agony
    Pleasure from the lack of pain

    You will be immortal man
    One in the hand
    You will know exactly then
    What you have
    You found the cure
    And Morse codes for rapture
    Get with your rhythm
    Get with your nature

    Serendipitous my travels throughout time
    I grab a moment like a thief and then I make it mine
    Nothing will compare to your realization
    When you come to find out your new object of fixation

    I try to freeze time
    Try to make a perfect snapshot
    It’s like a golden buttered jam
    To someone it will mean a lot

    Sweetness is your being
    Zen human walking
    Stepping out from shadows
    Flowing like a breeze soft and
    When dawn unveils the morning star risen
    Feel the light feel the love your christened
    With this life not ours not for long
    But for the taking take it
    The birth light breaking break it
    Between the light and dark is a seem
    That is caving in
    Mutating rearranging your soul
    Changing form again

    You are immortal man
    One in the hand
    Know exactly then
    What you have
    You got the cure
    And Morse codes for rapture
    Get with your rhythm
    Get with your nature

    Serendipitous my travels throughout time
    I grab a moment like a thief and then I make it mine
    Nothing will compare to your realization
    When you come to find out your new object of fixation

    I try to freeze time
    Try to make a perfect snapshot
    It’s like a golden buttered jam
    To someone it will mean a lot

    You are immortal man
    One in the hand
    Know exactly then
    What you have
    You got the cure
    And Morse codes for rapture
    Get with your rhythm
    Get with your nature


    Flowing (Pre-production)

    Along the way to close my eyes
    I lost where I was going
    The more it will spin
    The more that I try
    To stop my mind flowing away, away
    To all that I despise
    Along the way to close my eyes

    You can’t be let down if you don’t expect the world
    Expect to lay awake and by your sleeping girl
    If somebody cares then there is no way you can tell
    Cursed consciousness is your private hell

    Along the way to close my eyes
    I lost where I was going
    The more it will spin
    The more that I try
    To stop my mind flowing away, away
    To all that I despise
    Along the way to close my eyes

    Tick, tick, tick the clock bludgeons your mind
    Endlessly replaying times that were unkind
    Go away sun I’m not prepared for you today
    It seems you are, it seems you are, huh!

    Along the way to close my eyes
    I lost where I was going
    The more it will spin
    The more that I try
    To stop my mind flowing away, away
    To all that I despise
    Along the way to close my eyes


    Livin’ and Rockin’ (Pre-production)

    Fire is my method for destruction
    Leaving chard wreckage from my latest eruption
    Unpredictable, my erratic demeanor
    Bobbing and weaving as my mind gets leaner
    Though I’m trippin on legs that stumble but I don’t fall down
    You know I’m singing out things you mumble from a lack of resound
    Pissed off mist lifts to honesty
    Now come down motherfucker with your philosophy

    I’m at ease when I feel there’s a breeze
    Give me a little please
    Aristotle I’m not but think of Socrates
    So are you ready for your lesson blood
    Democratic non-erratic Socratic method
    We’ll take away the pain
    We’ll take away the bullshit built up in your brain
    In times of change or the same old things
    As you maintain or rearrange

    Come on now feel the vibe flow
    The name is 311 and we rip up
    We rip up the show and
    Drums, bass, guitar, and two microphones
    We made it this far so just flow
    That’s right

    Wild and lost speed mad
    A long way from sad
    Looking good like you should you’re bad
    An itinerant dimension mystic is your spirit see
    Like color absolute bodiless indeed
    Casual kindred spirit past
    All the obstacles you’re dealing with at last
    The NASDAQ, two puppies, baby needs new shoes
    Car alarms, your rent, wedding bells, the blues

    The tragic fucking comedy that was last night
    Unfolds to my inner devils sheer delight
    A pointless fucking banter in an endless bout
    With whiskey soaked Frolic Room tobacco mouth
    Then a sickening trip to what I call the elitist cesspool
    Beckoning all the sycophants and defeated yes-fools
    Hung over, broke, and a round of apologies
    Now come down Martinez with the modern mythology

    Come on now feel the vibe flow
    The name is 311 and we rip up
    We rip up the show and
    Drums, bass, guitar, and two microphones
    We made it this far so just flow
    That’s right

    Come on now feel the vibes flow
    311 rip up
    Rip up the show and
    Drums, bass, guitar, and two microphones
    Made it this far so just flow

    Full Ride (Pre-production)

    Yeah, uh-huh, unh
    Awww shit
    What, unh
    You know the freaks can’t handle it
    We keep on searching from the seaside
    To the mountainside, come on
    Hardly outstyled and hardly outblazened
    Nectar natural, completely amazing
    Others more concerned with just fronting on hardness
    I flow sweet with millennium niceness
    I don’t know if they’re just scared or what
    But a little sincerity would knock them on their butt
    I keep my dogs at my side and I keep my shit tight
    Let me tell you how I feel, all right

    Y’all’s radio rock ain’t tuff
    Can’t move to that ain’t deep enough
    One more time groove on the line
    Chill’s up my spine, ready, rewind

    The only thing that never gets old is honesty
    You’ll probably be caught up fronting
    The only thing you always try to be is hard
    Because you’re scared that someone might pull your card
    The only thing that never gets played out
    Is melody, I’m hearing it calling me
    It’s plain to see because it’s all laid out

    Full ride, I’m a master of technology
    Livin’ my life nice in pursuit of groove-ology
    I’m getting vibes like you checking me out
    Without a doubt I pull clout and crush crews in a rout
    I’m a Doberman in any given reaction
    Well-mannered and reserved, yet ready for action
    I let you have it all, I got nothin to hide
    I tell ya how we comin’, we comin’ full ride
    Full ride (full ride) we work it on the inside
    As you’d expect we come correct
    While others just run and hide
    Full ride (full ride) we work it on the inside
    As you’d expect we come correct, unh

    I get fucked up rockin the jams, I bump disco
    Playin’ records all day I then let go
    I’m the king of my town
    But when my girl is around
    Parlay like the Count of Monte Cristo
    So simple the jams are in front of me
    Get drunk in New York, makin’ fun of me
    When we play it’s a serous thing
    To all the people who gather
    Here’s what we bring

    The only thing that never gets old is honesty
    You’ll probably be caught up fronting
    The only thing you always try to be is hard
    Because you’re scared that someone might pull your card
    The only thing that never gets played out
    Is melody, I’m hearing it calling me
    It’s plain to see because it’s all laid out

    Yeah, yeah, what
    Full ride (full ride) we work in on the inside
    As you’d expect we come correct
    While others just run and hide
    (full ride) full ride, we work in on the inside
    As you’d expect we come correct

    Yes, yes, full ride (full ride) we work in on the inside
    As you’d expect we come correct
    While others just run and hide
    (full ride) full ride, we work in on the inside
    As you’d expect we come correct, unh


    Champagne (Pre-production)

    I will never understand you
    When will I stop trying
    I mean, cuz it’s just not how I planned to
    Spend my time til’ dying, I mean

    Champagne
    California on the brain
    She’s got an appetite for no refrains
    Just verses, she curses as blood vessels burst in defiance
    She made an alliance to the dark side of Hollywood
    Where everything looks good
    So I treat her as any other player would
    Lightly, then she wants to fight me
    Too bad, that’s just too bad
    I can’t be around to pick up your bags and your debts
    She wants to love me with threats
    Not taking chances, I’m hedging my bets
    With other girls I’m not providing pearls
    I’m free, free

    I will never understand you
    When will I stop trying
    I mean, cuz it’s just not how I planned to
    Spend my time til’ dying
    I mean

    I know loving me isn’t easy
    I’m home and next thing I’m leaving
    But when I look at you it’s like praying with my eyes
    I follow you to sleep so I will find
    Your dream place and hey, I’m not an angel
    But girl you make me feel like I know one, one

    Champagne
    California on the brain
    She’s got an appetite for no refrains
    Just verses, she curses as blood vessels burst in defiance
    She made an alliance to the dark side of Hollywood
    Where everything looks so good
    So I treat her as any other sucker would
    Tightly, then she wants to fight me
    Too bad, that’s just too bad
    I can’t be around to pick up your bags and your debts
    She wants to love me with threats
    I’m not taking chances, I’m hedging with my bets
    With other girls I’m not providing pearls
    I’m free, free
    Never understand


    Sick Tight (Pre-production)

    Head rush
    Come on, we take the stage
    And what’s up, it’s on
    This is a blow up
    So just listen up
    Just take your mouth off interrupt
    We came to throw down
    It’s a showdown
    And you know why, we never lie
    Get the lowdown son
    We’re mashin and bashin
    The stage we’re crashin
    If you’re on the roof
    The boogeyman is dancin
    I bet we get the people jumpin overseas
    And I know why you’re makin’ mp3’s
    The shit shit shocker
    The hiphop rocker
    Wiser than Baraka
    Stronger than Chewbacca
    KISS never did this nor Ozzy Ozbourne
    Shakin that ass and shakin your firstborn
    Back to the future and past to the front
    We appear like adrenaline it’s just that blunt

    Two score and five we came alive
    A minor blow up has started
    A song for the newly sane and
    The broken hearted

    Head rush
    Come on, we take the stage
    And what’s up, it’s on
    From midnight til daylight
    You best believe that we’re sick tight
    You’re cryin’ bout your life
    I think it’s absurd
    What could be so bad
    You come from the suburbs
    Just like me
    But I could never despair
    Most people in this world
    Ain’t got shit to spare
    Suckas look up to thugs
    They like the attitude
    But fuck that
    I’m talkin’ gratitude
    They harder they act
    Just to hide their insecurity
    I’m talking honestly
    We are assuredly
    Dope, I smoke it
    But not everyday
    Cuz anything all the time’s
    A drag I say
    Three eleven you want to get next to them
    My name’s Nick H, E, X, U, M

    Two score and five we came alive
    A minor blow up has started
    A song for the newly sane and
    The broken hearted
    We keep an eye for each other then again
    Our known associates endure
    We make a sick tight connection when we
    See our true people on tour

    Keep it going now
    You know we got it right
    We keep it flowing now
    We’re sick tight

    We keep an eye for each other then again
    Our known associates endure
    We make a sick tight connection when we
    See our true people on tour

    Keep it going now
    You know we got it right
    We keep it flowing now
    We’re sick tight


    How Do You Feel? (Pre-production)

    I’m all right I feel real light
    I don’t live a life that’s uptight
    If there’s fight there’s struggling
    I can’t walk through the world
    Without offering questions
    What’s my direction
    Breakin’ the grip of depression
    There comes a day when you let it go
    There comes a time to rock a show

    You know the time that you feel
    Like nothing else really matters
    You’re on the spot in the world
    That you belong
    That’s where I am when the lights going down
    I’ll find a way to have some fun
    I know that there is a link of energy
    To someone

    How do you feel?
    Cuz I couldn’t ask for
    A single thing more
    How do you feel?
    The moment you know
    Just what you are for

    What’s wrong with your life
    It’s a game to you
    Are you looking for the answers
    When you search Yahoo?
    Giving my time will surpass all you do
    You can’t escape the chaos of the truth
    It’s illusion of hue imagery
    The thing you’re holding onto is lighter than cream
    Never underestimate the sights of my team
    Listen to your gut
    How does it seem

    I feel the fuel rushing through my veins
    Almost insane
    You could take on the world
    It’s all in your brain

    How do you feel?
    Cuz I couldn’t ask for
    A single thing more
    How do you feel?
    The moment you know
    Just what you are for

    How do you feel?
    Cuz I couldn’t ask for
    A single thing more
    How do you feel?
    The moment you know
    Just what you are for

    How do you feel?
    Cuz I couldn’t ask for
    A single thing more
    How do you feel?
    The moment you know
    Just what you are for


    Down (Demo)

    Chill
    Light on my sight as my ego becomes
    A funky child with some words on my tongue
    Be like intake of breath and my mouth gets loose
    So while I scatter my spit, I dream of juice
    Have you ever made out in dark hallways?
    Displayed a kiss that made your day?
    Or, say, played a track from your record collection?
    It’s your mix. Congratulations.

    We’ve changed a lot and then some, some
    Know that we have always been down, down
    If I ever didn’t thank you, you
    Then just let me do it now

    (Jump back in)
    I bet you light up when we start the show
    Follow me now very closely cuz I told you so
    You know we glow because we throw sun-rays
    Now we be freaky and we wanna stay (unh)

    We’ve changed a lot and then some, some
    Know that we have always been down, down
    If I ever didn’t thank you, you
    Then just let me do it now

    Lightning strikes, yo, we be in that violent force of light
    Guaranteed to turn it out as bad as Dolemite
    Because we’re dope, kid, change like a chameleon
    And the channel whenever that whack show “Real World” is on
    You know we dazzle like ghetto box boomin’ battles
    Rattle inside your head, feel redeemed like cola bottles
    Fall in love with your teachers on the wax, we are self made
    Check the technique, 311 in LA

    We’ve changed a lot and then some, some
    Know that we have always been down, down
    If I ever didn’t thank you, you
    Then just let me do it now

    Keep my feet on the ground
    Keep my head in the clouds
    Electrified by the sound
    Comes from the down, and

    We’ve changed a lot and then some, some
    Know that we have always been down, down
    If I ever didn’t thank you, you
    Then just let me do it now


    Let the Cards Fall (Demo)

    Let the cards fall
    Let the cards fall where they may
    All I can do, all I can say
    Gotta move to trust my instinct
    And surrender, let my song sing itself
    I am they who admit what they don’t know
    All my friends excitable, they’ll tell you so

    So let the cards fall, and fall where they may
    In checkin’ on our conviction, dick
    We run the shit our own way
    So do as you will, do as you wish
    Follow your bliss on everyday
    Never ask for an advantage
    Let the cards fall where they may, huh

    So let the cards fall, and fall where they please
    Ask me while we’re at it, I do it with ease
    Taking up space is the people who try to hold you back
    But in reality the majority really don’t give jack, huh


    Random (Demo)

    Sound boy proceed to blast into the galaxy, oh
    Go back rocket man into the sky, you’ll see, oh
    Hear it all the time, come back rewind
    Aliens are waiting up in the sky
    Sound boy proceed to blast into the galaxy, oh
    Sound boy when you come round
    Sound boy won’t you stay
    No one gonna harm you
    They all want you to play

    I watch the birds of prey that
    Hunt the canyon below my house
    Looking for a meal like a lizard or a mouse
    I wonder if they appreciate the setting like me
    To control your own direction choose to be free
    And i reserve the right to be as trite as i want
    And you can lick but don’t bite
    I toss you here to Vermont
    I kick it lickety split
    And hand it to the man in the tan van
    And as for you and your crew i don’t hate you

    Peace is my priority ‘cuz marley said for sure-ity
    Just what do you think i’m doin’?
    I’m not just here for screwin’
    Yo and if it’s sore take care of it
    Perhaps from too much stucking
    But anytime your aware of it then keep on fucking

    You know we cool when we come ’bout… (Hey, isn’t that random?)
    People get ready… (Oh… hey, isn’t that random? Cuz we do it national)
    Sound boy, gonna rock you, oh… (hey, isn’t that random?)
    People rock steady, hey! (Oh… isn’t that random?)

    To be the one who has it all is not that hard
    And I’ll be that type of dude in a funky car
    I dream of a suit that will fit my rhyme
    When I recognize my girl from a former life
    I love it when the only sound that I hear is your infectious laughter
    I will hear you again in 800 years if I’m still lucky
    Go north on Outpost then take a left on Mulholland
    To me that’s where I like it and Macapa Drive is callin’
    I get up to the sun and then I stretch out
    It’s beginning to look like summer
    And I’m down with no doubt, swing

    You know we cool when we come ’bout… (Hey, isn’t that random?)
    People rock steady… (Oh… hey, isn’t that random? Cuz we do it national)
    Sound boy, gonna rock you, oh… (hey, isn’t that random?)
    People rock steady, hey! (Oh… isn’t that random?)

    I break a silly peace for offering, rap weasel then I’m boffering
    I’d give you an exclusive on my playlist
    The thought and styles I kick are from a random hat pick
    That’s why most radio will never play this, tell ’em again
    Me a rude boy from Omaha, Nebraska
    Sick as a porno flick yet gold as precious laughter
    Many don’t agree but we can’t care about that
    Cuz we’re never gonna wear the old hat, spoken


    The Continuous Life (Demo)

    When things are outta whack and they might collapse
    And at the end of the day you still can’t relax
    And physically you ache like a cavity feelin’ the bind
    On your mind and the rest of your body
    Listen to your heartbeat flow and imagine
    Become Jackson Pollack air brush Chinese dragons
    On a sky blue conversion van or an electra
    Buick of the mind full of luminous matter
    And slowly all the pressure recedes and you stop to decay
    Naturally think clearly ultimately though your grace
    Will give way to traffic jams
    Submachine guns in hand
    City red-necks who think like the omega man
    Feelin’ the extremes of the times we’re livin’
    Stockpile spaghetti-o’s and cheerios
    Plannin’ to survive that fall-out shit

    It’s not ambiguous it be continuous
    It’s all about us it’s for real my man
    The continuous life there is no end
    Movin’ through life movin’ through death

    It’s not ambiguous it be continuous
    It’s all about us it’s for real my man
    The continuous life there is no end
    Movin’ through life movin’ through death

    My radio emits a signal form
    A loud noise the kind of which I’ve never heard before
    I scan the dial for more stations but all I get
    Is an eerie feelin’ I’m not dreaming’ this is the real dealin
    There’s nothin like this trance I’m caught in a daze
    Cuz I’m finally out of my body the blue lights are ablaze
    Yeah I’m really amazed and feelin’ so light that’s right
    Lift off and I’m into the sky
    As if a hologram were created to shift my consciousness
    Changed again and I’m flung in the rift
    I wanna be free I wanna do right
    I move through the portal to be purified

    It’s not ambiguous it be continuous
    It’s all about us it’s for real my man
    The continuous life there is no end
    Movin’ through life movin’ through death

    It’s not ambiguous it be continuous
    It’s all about us it’s for real my man
    The continuous life there is no end
    Movin’ through life movin’ through death

    When we shed the skin, we’d be continuous
    Catch the feelin’, you’re for real
    The continuous life, there is no end
    Movin’ through life, movin’ through through death



    Disc 4

    Pass the Grass (Strong All Along Demo)

    Hey, na na na
    A Skiddleebebop, we rock, scooby doo,
    And guess what
    America jazz voodoo
    And it’s always been around
    Since when they called it skat
    Ain’t nothing changed
    But now they call it rapping
    Rhythmic illustrations to represent your soul
    Some like reggae coastal
    Some like rock and roll
    Soul, metal mind but to me it’s all good
    Living hard in London
    Rocking Hollywood
    Rocking Hollywood
    Rocking Hollywood

    I love to hear music from the Caribbean
    Talking from the heart from what this I see in
    Big up to all American jazz news makers
    From John Scofield to the one Chet Baker, man


    Forward (Large in the Margin Demo)

    Uh! Woo! Check it-check it-check it out
    You got clout and you know that

    Large in the margin
    We’ll put you in charge for your pleasure
    Large in the margin
    (mumbles)
    Maybe it’s better, but I don’t think so
    Maybe it’s better to fight, one never ever knows
    Maybe it’s better, (mumbles)
    (mumbles)

    Trying too hard to reach some higher plane
    Will fuck you up
    When you least expect it
    Think you’re moving closer
    When suddenly you wrecked it
    But all the same, the pain gains wisdom
    As if you ain’t had enough then you’re in some
    Prison of your own creation
    Mental dilation
    Look at what your facin’
    Placin’ blame in every direction
    But in the end it’s your own infection, di’ack

    You think they’ll probably find you
    Well then you’re probably right
    Cuz they’ll come back to remind you, for eternity
    When you gave in to the fight
    Somehow they always will find you
    The voices in the night, and every night
    Keep comin’ back to remind you, for eternity
    Of when you gave up the fight



    Kill (Can’t Fade Me Demo)

    I am a cool and mellow man
    Always got a plan
    Coping out problems
    Every time I can
    Like to be known as a great communicator
    If you got beef don’t save it for later

    Pleasure to meet you
    I’m mister logic
    What’s in my mind
    Let’s not dodge it
    Keeping it cruel cause I am able
    Able to be stable

    I am a manicured swinger
    Known to talk shit
    I really can’t remember
    But somebody got hit
    Even as I do it
    I know I do it wrong
    I bet I could control it
    But the urge is so strong

    I battle evil weekly, monthly, yearly
    But every step I take
    The devil stays near me
    There’s a voice in my head that takes control
    What I said about being stable
    It’s all bull

    I am a nervous wreck
    I can’t sit still
    Always on the verge of mentally ill
    Nine times out of ten
    Can’t sleep past sunrise
    Trying all night
    Close my eyes

    I got news for you
    It ain’t nothing nice
    We all got demons
    We all got a vice
    The struggle never ends
    To keep it in check
    But I’ll never stop trying
    To make the trek
    What up



    I’ll Be Here Awhile (Demo)

    I’ll be here awhile, ain’t going nowhere
    I’ll be here awhile, ain’t going nowhere
    I’ll be here awhile, ain’t going nowhere
    I’ll be here awhile

    Far is solace in the maddening pace
    Sad state written on my face
    Not a tight rope walk but dance
    Uncertain game of chance
    But I’ll see it through in time

    I’ll be here awhile, ain’t going nowhere
    I’ll be here awhile, ain’t going nowhere
    I’ll be here awhile, ain’t going nowhere
    I’ll be here awhile

    And if a person, place, or thing can deliver, I would quiver with delight
    Tempted by the hand that could blind my vision and sight
    But at twenty years of age
    In frolic and in rage
    I will see it through in time

    I’ll be here awhile, ain’t going nowhere
    I’ll be here awhile, ain’t going nowhere
    I’ll be here awhile, ain’t going nowhere
    I’ll be here awhile

    But the dawn has come into the endless night
    And everything’s going to be alright
    But at thirty years of age
    Through frolic and in rage
    All regressed and healed in time

    I’ll be here awhile, ain’t going nowhere
    Said I, said I, said I, I will survive

    Uh uh, ay ya



    Seems Uncertain (Demo)

    It seems uncertain
    I wish it was forgone
    To know the version
    That made life go wrong

    Wish I had a clue
    What rearranged our molecules
    Mostly wondering
    It seems uncertain, ah
    It seems uncertain, yeah
    It seems uncertain, ah
    Uncertain

    In times of trouble
    Everyone joins a team
    No one waves a flag
    For all human beings

    No one’s excited
    Unless they are divided
    Someone’s going to have to give in
    It seems uncertain, ah
    It seems uncertain, yeah
    It seems uncertain, ah
    Uncertain

    I’d like to be
    One of the faithful millions
    But what I see
    Is an excuse for the killing

    Your denomination
    Should be a private thing
    How about a spirit
    For all human beings

    How could something well guided
    Turn out to be divisive
    Mostly wondering
    It seems uncertain, yeah
    It seems uncertain, yeah
    It seems uncertain, ah
    Uncertain



    Give Me A Call (Demo)

    Ooh, you draw such pictures in my head
    Ooh, with so few words I know what you said

    Until the time comes
    To carry the one
    Make that dream real
    And be sure it stays done
    So let that thought
    Bloom in your mind
    A vision that’s caught
    Never left behind

    You should just give me a call
    You should just give me a call

    I think about you much more than I should
    Now there’s a structure nothing had once stood
    No more bluffing it’s cards on the table time
    What it must be we will take it as a sign

    So just give me a call
    So just give me a call

    Sunset and my love left me
    Winter and I’m so far
    In darkness will it lead me
    To where the meanings are

    I miss and think of you often
    No flowers I forgot them
    The weather’s the same
    Nothing happens
    No love’s a hard lesson, yeah

    Patience and years will refashion
    What hours will undo
    And circles not yet quite circles
    Somehow close true

    I keep on hearing all the things that you said
    I keep on feeling you go straight to my head
    No more bluffing it’s cards on the table time
    What it must be we will take it as a sign

    So just give me a call
    So just give me a call

    I did it, I’m to blame
    It’s all on account of me
    I’m the blip on your screen
    The dark spot, that’s me

    Ooh, how do I know if it’s just me
    Sometimes I think that it must be
    You gotta know you can trust me

    I think about you much more than I should
    Now there’s a structure nothing had once stood
    No more bluffing it’s cards on the table time
    What it must be we will take it as a sign

    So just give me a call
    So just give me a call
    So just give me a call
    So just give me a call
