Disc 1

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

Disc 2

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


Juan Bond

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

If you need to understand, Juan Bond is detective man
If you need to understand, Juan Bond is detective man

Damn

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

If you need to understand, Juan Bond is detective man
If you need to understand, Juan Bond is detective man

Here’s some advice, it’s called A B C
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
Living my life with them, 311 University

Grifter

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
The trigger blows
It’s a writer’s block party


Earth People

We are Earth people
We choose more advance yeah
Deeper to our heritage
Don’t tell we are the best

Get it back
Get it back
By the magic that you lack
Manifest it
It will not go away yeah
Take it back
Take it back
Lift the secrets off the backs
This is your world
Let’s keep it that way yeah

You’re faking each other baddest you had to live
And your ego just has got to give it up son
Take a look at your world
Pollution all around
Let’s start by getting rid of all the oil corporations

All we left inside
Until rises are bad
Nature takes it course
There will be plenty to be had

Get it back
Get it back
By the magic that you lack
Manifest it
It will not go away yeah
Take it back
Take it back
Lift the secrets off the backs
This is your world
Let’s keep it that way yeah

You’re faking each other baddest you had to live
And your ego just has got to give it up son
Take a look at your world
Pollution all around
Let’s start by getting rid of all the oil corporations


The Quickening

Do you ever get to thinking
Thinking about
Thinking about time
All the past times underground
Shifting around
Shifting around
I telling ya’ say
I don’t wanna close it
The universe is I wish will be no implosion
Tell them
When the waters come on flowin’
We will be one
We’ll be transcended

Soon will come a day in the near future, whoa
Not but told by your TV or your newspaper
Will be a lesson
In real impression
Not Armageddon
But color calling
Come on, hey

It’s quickening
You can feel it
Make sure you do the right thing
And just remember the truth might make you hard
You feel the vibration

Did you ever get to thinking
About memory
Deep memory
Prophecy left by the Mayan and the Hopi
Hopi
I tell what they say
We are in the fourth war
And close to approaching the end of a cycle
I tell you
If we don’t heed the signs
We’ll be end times
We’ll be end times

Soon will come a day in the near future, whoa
Not but told by your TV or your newspaper
Can’t for accepting
Whatever love means
Let love guard you
And your family
Come on, hey

It’s quickening
You can feel it
Make sure you do the right thing
And just remember the truth might make you hard
You feel the vibration


Everything

Come ah come ah come ah
Come find me
When the blush of the evening blooms
And all the colors that we dream vast
That once appear and dress the moon

I know
There’s one thing I know
And I will tell ya’
I know
There’s one thing I know
And I will tell ya’

Suppose you wake up
Tomorrow morning
See how everything
Connects to you

Alright now
Come ah come ah come ah
Come tell me
How hapless sleepless are the blueish light
Connecting you to your dream body
Connecting you to electric light

I know
There’s one thing I know
And I will tell ya’
I know
There’s one thing I know
And I will tell ya’

Suppose you wake up
Tomorrow morning
See everything
Connects to you
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
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

Telephone ring
Lost my contemplation
Should I answer it?
Certain confrontation
What do you knows
It comes to blows
My ears are ringing from your vibrations
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
But you’re only a fool for believing
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

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

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
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

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


Who’s Got The Herb

2 for 1, 5 for 4, half ounces
Quarter pounds, LB’s and kilos
What are we looking for?
Sinsemilla
What are we hoping for?
What are we hoping for?

Who’s got the herb?
That’s what the young boys ask me
Who’s got the herb?
And then the elders tell me
Who’s got the herb?
That’s what the young girls ask me
Who’s got the herb?
Knotty dread-locks

Skunk, bud, indica
Sativa, my reefer, la arriba
Skunk, bud, indica

When we roll a big one
It feels so right
When we smoke it in our bong
It feels so nice

Who’s got the herb?
That’s what the young boys ask me
Who’s got the herb?
And then the elders tell me
Who’s got the herb?
That’s what the young girls ask me
Who’s got the herb?
Knotty dread-locks

Who’s got the herb?
Who’s got the herb?
Who’s got the herb?
Who’s got the herb?
What I’m talkin’ ’bout
Cramacaca cayaca die shocka fryaca
From a coppa, yes I’m tellin’ you
Cramacaca cayaca die shocka fryaca
From a coppa

What are we looking for?
Sinsemilla
What are we hoping for?

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)
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)



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


Visit (Pre-production)

He wouldn’t say he cared at all if you asked him
You’re heading for a fall, brother, it goes right past him
In another world (world)
He’s in another place (place)
You know the need for speed is just another form of greed
But when your Jones’n (Jones’n)
Your brain is frozen (frozen)
You’re not thinkin’ about the choices your makin’
You’re just rollin’ on and on, it’s anybody’s guess
Cause no one’s at the wheel at the front of that mess, yes

The sun’s goin’ down for me, it’s goin down for me (visit)
And he and she are what I need, yes they’re what I need (visit)
But I’m gonna buy a ticket, I’m not gonna even pick it
(reggae raga, reggae raga, reggae)
I heard it, he said it, I heard it
(reggae raga, reggae raga, reggae)
But it went, but it went something like

Visit
I wanna visit the world
I wanna visit the world
I wanna visit the world

Because living when you’re hungry is a dog in an alley
Now I mind my business cause I’m rhymin down in Cali
I ain’t playin’ when sayin’ kings of the ghetto
Feel they losing ground
Vato’s going loco because everyone’s brought down
This is a visit to then we dead fade to dust strickin’
I’m wearing my Doc Martens cause
I’m always down for kickin’
This, my friend the city pity everywhere the enemy
Ready or not homey stompin’ everyone in front of me

Jump up and down cause that’s the 311 style (visit)
Jump up and down cause that’s the 311 style (visit)

Looking at the ocean, I say there’s plenty
(reggae raga, reggae raga, reggae)
Looking at the river, I say there’s plenty so

Visit
I wanna visit the world
I wanna visit the world
I wanna visit the world

Jump up and down cause that’s the 311 style (visit)
Cruise on by the frowners float follow me now with a smile (visit)
I’ve got a golden ticket, I’m not gonna even pick it
(reggae raga, reggae raga, reggae)
I heard it he said it I heard it
(reggae raga, reggae raga, reggae)
But it went, but it went something like

Visit
I wanna visit the world

I wanna visit the world
Visit

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
This is what I ask for, this is what I deserve
Be careful what you ask for

Black Eyed Peas they coming full range and
NOFX they coming full range and

A warning to the crews out there who think they’re hot
If you’re not original rockers you will get shot
Down by the kids neglecting your art, the stuff you did
Eventually it gets so bad it puts you to bed
Cause when lightning flashes sweet electricity
All the world is there revealed with the clarity
Of raw voltage, briefly we see and the hope is
You’ll be able to tell just what dope is

Come original you got to come original
All entertainers come original
You got to come original you got to come original
All entertainer

Funk slap bass mixed with the dancehall and
Hip-hop beats and punk guitar and
Deadly on the rhymes is the one SA
The name is 311 go yeah huh

This is not a test there’s no time to mope
How you gonna cope with radioactive isotope
And boss DJ illness upon you now quickly
Infecting you fast upon the airwaves
This message brought to you by the solar system
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
That’s right


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
