Too Much To Think

Back again I’m holed up
In the waiting room again
Focused on the empty
Getting underneath my skin

How do I keep it
How do I keep it here

Look at how the time flies
Burning daylight to the ground
Wash away the ashes
Gonna quiet my head down

How do I keep it
How do I keep it here

Cuz I wanna get high
But you’re keeping me low
I don’t got time to waste or time to kill
I’ve had too much too think
I wanna get high
But you’re taking me down down down
I don’t got time to waste or time to kill
I’ve had too much too think

Illuminate the shadows
And try to keep the light within
Avoid another battle
And forget what might have been

How do I keep it
How do I keep it here

Cuz I wanna get high
But you’re keeping me low
I don’t got time to waste or time to kill
I’ve had too much too think
I wanna get high
But you’re taking me down down down
I don’t got time to waste or time to kill
I’ve had too much too think

As I walk through the valley of the shadow of LA
See the faces of the people as they run away
It’s a permanent made distraction the modern reaction
The people don’t have to feel the dissatisfaction
It’s a slow journey up but a quick ride on down
And nobody here knowing their way around
From the top of the world
Every which way is down
Who’s gonna take the crown

Cuz I wanna get high
But you’re keeping me low
I don’t got time to waste or time to kill
I’ve had too much too think
I wanna get high
But you’re taking me down down down
I don’t got time to waste or time to kill
I’ve had too much too think


Wildfire

Start the game and breaking all that came
You know that you have lost out the second you delay
Believe the key it lies in your biology
Rising up the temperature useless (parsing) technology
Park the car and walk under the stars
So god damn afraid to let down your guard
You can see I’m talking b-b-bout me
That’s just what it is like in the wild fire

It’s me, me, me, I am more that what you see
Pouring out my cranium on the m.i.c.
I’m gonna come in harder, to the thirsty, bringing water
Thought you wanted it to get higher but you’re in the wild fire now

Someone told you that you had no chance
People told us it would never transpire
You can be defeated in advance
Just let them all burn in the wildfire

Let me tell you what you might not know
When the chips are down I mean lower than low
You might think this dude won’t show
Cuz I’ve done robbed Knox and took all the gold
Well holmes I’ve come with my squad and we’ll get in the mix
and you can pray to your god but your god can’t fix
How I look at this world and if I am crying
it’s cuz I’m at the bank of love and I’ma die laughing haha

Whether you think you can whether you think you can’t
Either way you’re right
Tell ya, whether you think you can whether you think you can’t
Brother you’re right on

Someone told you that you had no chance
People told us it would never transpire
You can be defeated in advance
Just let them all burn in the wildfire

Life, goes on and on
The decisions, so many times they make themselves
And then the aftermath you cannot take it back
Your point of view is everything
That you’re making, rude awakening
Hate to be the one to tell you so
I thought that you should know
Cuz that’s what I’m here for
Told you I’d never go

And when the morning comes
You know I’ll still be here
One thing you should not fear
Whatever things that come
Through the rain
And the sunshine and the pain
We’ll look back and smile
When all is said and been done
When the song is sung


The Night is Young

Waiting for the break of the dawn to come on
While nighttime animals become withdrawn
Disbelieving where I’m lead by what my head just said
Must be a part of me that wants me dead

But it’s contagious when you’re courageous
Just like when you are fearful it goes viral
Knowing just when to listen is the key to survival

The night is young
The night is young
Don’t worry bout what may come
The night is young
And we’ve only just begun

Refuse to wear a mask of stone
I’ll make a tone of my own
You know just how I feel as I walk into the unknown

But it’s contagious when your courageous
Just like when people will borrow your sorrow
The only way to live is like there’s no tomorrow

You never know what’ll get you
I never worry bout things that I can’t see
Never know what’ll set you, free
Better wait and see

The night is young
The night is young
Don’t worry bout what may come
The night is young
And we’ve only just begun

Don’t let the fear get you
Don’t let the fear get you
Paralyzed in routine
Don’t let the fear get you
And leave you stuck in between


Island Sun

Things go down
Sometimes they hit the ground
But the clouds are still in the sky
Cuz there’s a better place to be
and it’s one you need to see in this lifetime
So get on board and be on your way

Space to fill
Nothing to do but chill
No one minds
if you misbehave

You gotta come out on a run as we set into the sun
Blending all the flavors only mixing in the perfect ones
A harmony and a beat with boom
Filling all old school heads with zoom

See it all so clearly
There’s nowhere on earth to be
On the open sea
Best believe me

Take your frozen heartache
Lay it in the island sun
Bake it like a snowflake
Drink the water it becomes
As it melts away

Out of bounds
Seemingly lost and found
Come unwound
As we sail way

You gotta come along with me
As we float across the sea
Mixing up the elements with alien technology
A secret message hidden in this tune
Now let me hear it from you
Tell me whatcha say

Who’s the one that gets you?
Free from all distraction
Under a full moon
Could it be me?

Take your frozen heartache
Lay it in the island sun
Bake it like a snowflake
Drink the water it becomes
As it melts away


Perfect Mistake

Listen up
This is the next age
We’ve turned the page
and we’re gonna wreck
the place when we take the stage
Roll up the sleeves
Get down with me
It’s going off in the pit
like you wouldn’t believe
Let’s go all out
to the promised land
Ingest contraband
and begin to dance
This is life man
All we do is banned
We’ll make you feel
like a child again and again

Oh see it in our eyes
Hold it in our hands
All those days that you wasted away
There was no one to blame
It’s a perfect mistake
Oh see it in our eyes
Hold it in our hands
All those days that you wasted away
There was no one to blame
It’s a perfect mistake

This is a dream from the rest of our team
No one can intervene
And ‘til the end of our days
There is no in between
Picking up the pace
The chase moving through outer space
Motivated by the fire that drives
the human race
Came from a blank slate
Love it or hate
This is our real estate
True fate
Love it or hate
You’re on our real estate
Talking about the power devoured
Each second every hour
Talking about the break you make
Perfect mistake

Oh see it in our eyes
Hold it in our hands
All those days that you wasted away
There was no one to blame
It’s a perfect mistake
Oh see it in our eyes
Hold it in our hands
All those days that you wasted away
There was no one to blame
It’s a perfect mistake

All the wasted days and lonely haze went on and on and on and on
Left without a trace can’t be replaced it’s gone it’s gone it’s gone
All the wasted days and lonely haze went on and on and on and on
Left without a trace can’t be replaced it’s gone it’s gone it’s gone
It was a perfect mistake

Oh see it in our eyes
Hold it in our hands
All those days that you wasted away
There was no one to blame
It’s a perfect mistake


Extension

This is an extension achieving new heights of the day
Circumvent the limits come through disarray
Greater ascension cuz I was born to elevate
Never have been one to be cast away
We go on stronger take it in along the way
I got the super OG and the ghost train haze
It’s an extension that’s reaching so far away
Now we just break it on down hey

Stand undefeated
Completed anything that we set our mind
United by a fire to be undefined
Working all the time is gonna be fine
Because it’s really play
Ask me tell ya wouldn’t have it any other way

Deep inside the reaches of the entangled mind
I keep a place where I can go that no one ever will find
I make a perfect exchange I’m making connections strange
Sometimes the places that I go make people think I’m deranged
If there’s a reason that you’re holdin up the wall let it fall
I think it’s treason when I’m seeing people throwing it all
I let all just fly by with a quick wink of the eye
I think you all better get used to saying goodbye

This is an extension achieving new heights of the day
Circumvent the limits come through disarray
Greater ascension cuz I was born to elevate
Never have been one to be cast away
Stand undefeated
Anything that we set our mind
United by a fire to be undefined
It’s an extension that’s reaching so far away
Now lemme give you something sweet hey

Because the people dig deeper when with you always
Something about the decades taken day by day wanna replay
Think about no equal when jumping into the fray
Whatever you try don’t tell it goodbye just get it underway ay

You got a spirit yes it’s making a wave
See all the people ‘tracted to it
And they come around, they come around and
You look about realize there’s no other way
So you step into the crowd they all be getting down

This is an extension achieving new heights of the day
Circumvent the limits come through disarray
Greater ascension cuz I was born to elevate
Never have been one to be cast away
Stand undefeated
Anything that we set our mind
United by a fire to be undefined
It’s an extension that’s reaching so far away
Now lemme give you something sweet
This is an extension


Inside Our Home

Out here on the road
Surrounded yet still alone
But I can’t complain
3000 miles separates
Me from my center stone
The only thing that could fill this hole

Lined up my best intentions
I gave it half a chance
Now no one else I’d mention
Even worth a second glance

Any day now we’ll be way out in the country
Where we get to be
Who we really are being ourselves
I’m counting the days

I like the view out our window
Bucolic and peaceful
Every day there are mountains
And sometimes the ocean
But I’d give that all up for
The things I truly adore
What I see when I turn and look
Inside our home

Somehow, strange as it may
It’s harder for the one who stays
But you don’t complain
The thoughts and doubts are there to keep you company for days
You rise above and somehow carry the wait

Any day now I’ll be back out in the country
Where I get to feel
The love when it’s just us being ourselves
I’m counting the days

I like the view out our window
Bucolic and peaceful
Every day there are mountains
And sometimes the ocean
But I’d give that all up for
The things I truly adore
What I see when I turn and look
Inside our home

Home, home, wanna be home
It gets rougher than rough
Harder than this, I don’t know what could be
But you just take it on easily
There’s nothing so worth it
Imperfectly perfect

I like the view out our window
Bucolic and peaceful
Every day there are mountains
And sometimes the ocean
But I’d give that all up for
The things I truly adore
What I see when I turn and look
Inside our home


‘Til The City’s on Fire

Monday morning comes
like a hammerhead
It goes bang bang bang
’til I’m seeing red
I can’t wait for the week
to come to an end again

By the middle of the day
I can’t get away
I need an escape
I need a Saturday
Feel like I’m a stray
I’m trapped in a cage again

Friday night we made it
Hit the lights we’re faded
Raise your glasses
Strike the matches
Burn burn burn
‘Til the city’s on fire
Daylights far away
Can’t stop us there’s no way
Raise your glasses
Strike the matches
Burn burn burn
‘Til the city’s on fire
‘Til the city’s on fire
‘Til the city’s on
Raise your glasses
Strike the matches
Burn burn burn
‘Til the city’s on fire

Who’s gonna drive me home this time tonight
Who’s gonna drive me home this time tonight

All the girls doubled down
on the boulevard
And my boys hanging out
in front of the bar
Now who’s gonna drive me home this time tonight

Friday night we made it
Hit the lights we’re faded
Raise your glasses
Strike the matches
Burn burn burn
‘Til the city’s on fire
Daylights far away
Can’t stop us there’s no way
Raise your glasses
Strike the matches
Burn burn burn
‘Til the city’s on fire
‘Til the city’s on fire
‘Til the city’s on
Raise your glasses
Strike the matches
Burn burn burn
‘Til the city’s on fire


Too Late

I’ve been spinning in circles
Stuck in the state of contemplate
By the time that you hear this it will be too late

May not do a bit of good
But I cannot stay in a hopeless way
By the time that you hear this it will be too late, too late

Grasping in the darkness
Making it up as I go along
Find what we needed
Right when you read this
It will be too late

Made our way blindly for way too long
Made our way blindly for way too long

It’s human nature’s attraction to danger
You look around but you won’t see the rangers
Just crazy actin strangers actin up major actin up major
The river cuts it’s way through stone
Not through sheer force but persistence
At the end of the day the relentless always win

If they wanted to stop us
Opportunity passed cuz they hesitate
By the time that you hear this it will be too late, too late

Grasping in the darkness
Making it up as we go along
Find what we needed
Right when you read this
It will be too late

Made our way blindly for way too long
Made our way blindly for way too long

Only thing to stop us
or cutting us off of
a road I’ve been told
that ends in a drop off
The universe explodes
new galaxies pop up
new galaxies pop up

Low on gas, going fast, in the passing lane
All the light in the tunnel was an oncoming train
Out of sight, out of mind, stuck in a bind
That was the end of the line

Lick shot, king of the block
It’s going down another hard knock
That’s all you got
We’ll turn it up in the mix
They hear it out in the sticks
Relay the message from the down towns
With loud sounds we expound
It will be too late!


Hey Yo

Set them up and watch them fall
Is anybody talking at all

I want it all reduced down to an equation
So many variables came up as unknown
so I stayed up all night long writing out the code
but by morning light I lost all my concentration yeah

Hey yo hey yo
Is our mind even open at all
Hey yo hey yo
Communication is broken, hitting a wall
By the time we get out of line,
It’s all over for our composure
Hey yo hey yo
Do you hear what I’m saying
Is our mind even open at all

Has the world ever granted you anything
that you wished for
Has your soul felt uncertain on a future
outside your door
Let the moments come, and let go and let go
‘till it’s all gone
Has the world ever granted you anything
that you wished for

Hey yo hey yo
Is our mind even open at all
Hey yo hey yo
Communication is broken, hitting a wall
By the time we get out of line,
It’s all over for our composure
Hey yo hey yo
Do you hear what I’m saying
Is our mind even open at all


Places That The Mind Goes

If I don’t have to ride your roller coaster anymore
Then I won’t wait in line
Like all the other poor souls
Waiting just to be told
That your ride’s over sold
I don’t have to worry about you anymore,

Well I happen to know
When the lights get low
The places that the mind goes

If I don’t hear your voice back on the telephone
If I don’t read your name on any letter I open
Will I still keep on hoping?
With every door as it opens
You’ll be standing on the other side

Well, experience shows
That when the lights get low
The places that the mind goes

Why guess, why look, why ask
When still, you’d do the same?
Cross out stars crossing once again,
Who’s star to blame?

Yes I happen to know
The places that the mind goes

Divide this all by two if you agree with me at all
Mark it in your blueprints on the cutting room floor
Making changes as you go
They’re almost ready to show
I don’t have to worry about you anymore

But I happen to know
That when the lights get low
Yes I happen to know
That when the lights get low
The places that mind goes


Face in the Wind

In my unconscious mind
Always searching for the other side

In my unconscious mind
Door is open up to every kind
Eyes open wide
Never see what I expect to find

Dressed in skins
of a cosmic clan
Homo-sapien-stellarus
star-wisdom-man
Thru astroid belts
over dunes foreign
Spirit on the run
I’m an alien

Into heavens
Into headwinds
zillions of stars
pretty thing
human
Stardust of Ziggy’s
in off-worlds are
panned
Spirit on the run
I’m an alien

Living it now and taking it in
I made out won’t go back again
but instead I’ll tumble ahead in a forward spin
Living now and taking it in
I made out won’t go back again
but instead I’ll tumble ahead
Face in the wind

Let’s dance in discos
freakout n band
We don’t die
we’re mutants
on a caravan
All possible worlds
we imagine
Spirit on the run
I’m an alien

Longing for mars
Longing for lands
Mysterious moons
heroes we jammed
Frequencies earthly
escaping quicksand
Spirits on the run
earthbound aliens

Momentum’s gathering
soon all the tides will be turned
Make the most of what it brings
rebuilding all the bridges that burned

Living it now and taking it in
I made out won’t go back again
but instead I’ll tumble ahead in a forward spin
Living now and taking it in
I made out won’t go back again
but instead I’ll tumble ahead
Face in the wind


Forever Now

You gotta step right in the
Smack in the middle of it
Just get a running start
Don’t stop before you begin
It tears you right apart
I find whatever I find
and see whatever I see
I’ll make the rest with my mind hey

For an infinite minute
Let’s stop the clock and be in it
What takes you out just forget it
Whatever you will allow
For an infinite minute
Let’s find a way to begin it
Forever in now

La la la la la let me go
I don’t need to know where the slander goes
Na na na na na you’re never there when you’re unaware

Everybody, everybody gonna go
Everybody, that you know oh oh oh
Everybody, everybody gonna go
Time to jump out of the shadow
Come together forget yesterday’s already gone
Forever, forever now
Everybody, everybody gonna go-oh oh oh

Taking a ride on a cosmic trip
Getting my kicks while I try to pick apocalypse
Find your light shine around the eclipse
That’s something I’ll never miss, hey!

For an infinite minute
Let’s stop the clock and be in it
What takes you out just forget it
Whatever you will allow
For an infinite minute
Let’s find a way to begin it
Forever in now

La la la la la let me go
I don’t need to know where the slander goes
Na na na na na you’re never there when you’re unaware

Everybody, everybody gonna go
Everybody, that you know oh oh oh
Everybody, everybody gonna go
Time to jump out of the shadow
Come together forget yesterday’s already gone
Forever, forever now
Everybody, everybody gonna go-oh oh oh
Forever now

Someday I know that you and I will, we will all be gone
But the harmony lives on and on-on, on and on

Everybody, everybody gonna go
Everybody, that you know oh oh oh
Everybody, everybody gonna go
Time to jump out of the shadow
Come together forget yesterday’s already gone
Forever, forever now
Everybody, everybody gonna go-oh oh oh
Forever now


Days of ’88

With all my ride or dies
Aint no reason why
Good things can’t be
And a lot of times
I see them as that money
Right in front of me

Days of 88
We had everything in life
If you look at it right
We had reason
Cuz things rhymed
Because things rhymed
Because things rhymed

This trip has taken me somewhere I thought I’d never be
To a place that feels a long time coming
When we’re speaking easily
It really sets me free
Why don’t we just go on jamming

See the energy shining all around you
Higher than the smoke that might surround you

It’s like eat, work, play, sleep,
Kicking out jams eight days a week
It’s like wake up what can I say
I want another one just like today c’mon

Looking back in my mind
How about those times
Were they all a dream
In the storm, we were the eye
Wild with the lines
We were all living

Days of 88
We had everything in life
If you look at it right
We had reason
Cuz things rhymed
Because things rhymed
Because things rhymed

This trip has taken me somewhere I thought I’d never be
To a place that feels a long time coming
When we’re speaking easily
It really sets me free
Why don’t we just go on jamming

See the energy shining all around you
Higher than the smoke that might surround you

Here’s a little story to follow I bet you’re
humming through the same one tomorrow,  you never know
It could have been a swing and a miss or just another throw
It’s something that we couldn’t resist I tell ya better know

See the energy shining all around you
Higher than the smoke that might surround you


One and the Same

Thinking about when I was real young
Feeling like I was the only one
Born in the bottom a state of disconnection
Found it wouldn’t be so bad
When you would come along for the ride
No one can stop us from crossing the line
All I can say is what I will do
Get out of the way or we are going to
Burn the whole thing down
What we’re gonna do now

Show you what it’s all about

Come to find out we’re highly indivisible
Gonna find out we’re something like invincible
You’re just in the way
Cuz someone led you astray
We come from one and the same!

Nothing is vacant
The emptiness feels like it
can go on and go on
For the distance
an incessant discontent
When your back is up against
a world full of resistance

All I can say is what I will do
Get out of the way or we are going to
Burn the whole thing down
What we’re gonna do now

Show you what it’s all about

Come to find out we’re highly indivisible
Gonna find out we’re something like invincible
You’re just in the way
Cuz someone led you astray
We come from one and the same!

One and the same means the Yin and Yang comprising everything
Greater than the sum of the parts that’s why we got this far
Vital to the survival of the human race
That’s why we’re letting them know scream in your fuckin face

One and the same
With a bang
Do or die with your mains
Ain’t nothing changed
Or so strange
With burning sage in the caves
Can never gauge renegades
Whipping up your parade
No matter age or the decade
We’re not lost in a purple haze

Come to find out we’re highly indivisible
Gonna find out we’re something like invincible
You’re just in the way
Cuz someone led you astray
We come from one and the same!


Syntax Error

I know I should have stopped it
Any other day I’d know better
But now I’m laid out on the floor

I know I kind of dropped it
Should’ve written it down in a letter
But now there’s one foot out the door

All the words in disarray
Lost in translation
Errors just replay

I didn’t know it was like that
Left field, way off of center
and now there’s just one great divide

There’s no doubt wait..  strike that
All conversation is splintered
oh well, oh hell, at least I tried

All the thoughts I can’t relay
Have no explanation
Defects just display

Spell-checked streamlined clarified
Cut copied pasted
and erased it
but I replaced it

Outlined researched summarized
paraphrased arranged
and then deleted
Now i’m defeated

Good intentions gone astray
Locked in frustration
Plot lines in decay


On A Roll

In the here in the now
Back to where it began
Never even a chance
It wouldn’t happen again
Still we are and by far it’s the best that it’s been
For a long long time now

Many moons writing tunes
Find a way to connect
Gotta give it away to make it the best
Staying strong all along for whatever is next
For a long long time now

We’re gonna ride it out ‘til the end
It’s a long road up
To the top of the mountain
Gonna ride it out ‘til the end
It’s a long way down
So let’s stay in the trade winds

On a roll, here we go
All as one, here we go
On a roll, here we go
All as one, here we go

What a trip this has been
Wouldn’t change it my friend
Synergistic in time
We had a start but no end
We’re still here It’s so clear
Written down on our skin
For a long long time now

Here’s an ode to the road
We’re together as one
Gonna keep it alive
We’re always chasing the sun
Writing words to our book
Another chapters begun
For a long long time now

We’re gonna ride it out ‘til the end
It’s a long road up
To the top of the mountain
Gonna ride it out ‘til the end
It’s a long way down
So let’s stay in the trade winds

On a roll, here we go
All as one, here we go
On a roll, here we go
All as one, here we go

Let’s keep it all together
Here and now forever
Gonna keep it all together
It’s only getting better
Let’s keep it all together
Here and now forever
Gonna keep it all together
It’s only getting better

On a roll, here we go
All as one, here we go
