Track Name: 9 to Fk
V1

I’m as deep as the ocean
Did I rip off that line?
I’m just caught in the motions
of a 9 to 5 life

Would you say that you know me
From the corporate affair?
Do you see what I can be
Or do you even care


C1

Making the 9
Predictable drive
Gaze at the sky
Through jail-bar blinds

Passing the time
when I get home
TV is on
new episode

Making the 5
Mind on the drive
Gaze at the sky
We’ll be alright

Passing the time

new episode


V2

I’m as deep as the ocean
At least I am in my mind
I’m just caught in the motions
of a 9 to 5 grind

Would you say that you own me
for the corporate affair?
The only person I can’t be
Is someone who cares


C2

Making the 9
Predictable drive

Track Name: Scifi Pulp '72
V1

Backing up the name
International fame
Dagger eyes hypnotize
we believe the lies

Mind control through tin
Don’s got us now
From the outside in
Earth is going down


C1

LadadadaDa why won’t you say
What’s on, your mind
And on and on and on
Guns blaze in vain to death rays!

And LadadadaDa why won’t you say
What’s on, your mind
Cuz taking clues is
fucking useless


V2

Gonna build a wall
around all of our kin
blow up mars
But it still wouldn’t save our skin

Racking up the kills
on an alien base
We raised the bomb budget
so we could shoot up space


C2

LadadadaDa why won’t you say
What’s on, your mind
And on and on and on
Guns blaze in vain to death rays!

And LadadadaDa why won’t you say
What’s on, your mind
Cuz taking clues is
fucking useless

...Fuck...


C3

LadadadaDa why won’t you say
What’s on, your mind
And on and on and on
Guns blaze in vain to death rays!

And LadadadaDa why won’t you say
What’s on, your mind
Cuz taking clues is
fucking useless
Track Name: Heart-Shaped Box
V1

She eyes me like a Pisces when I am weak
I've been locked inside your heart-shaped box for weeks
I've been drawn into your magnetar pit trap
I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn black


C1

I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice

I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice


V2

Meat-eating orchids forgive no one just yet
Cut myself on angel hair and baby's breath
Broken hymen of your Highness, I'm left back
Throw down your umbilical noose so I can climb right back


C2

I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice

I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice


C3

I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice

I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Track Name: Phantom Call
V1

Brush away all the things you’ve seen
Look down on everyone, you think you stand so tall
The only message I can glean
Is shadows drop like leaves in fall, but trees live through it all


C1

Holding onto names
Like a phantom call
that echoes on and on
down a hollow hall

Holding onto names
Like a phantom call
that echoes on and on
down a hollow hall


….brush away all the things you’ve seen…


V2

Brush away all the things you’ve seen
Look down on everyone, you think you stand so tall
The only message I can glean
Is shadows drop like leaves in fall, but trees live through it all


C2

Holding onto names
Like a phantom call
that echoes on and on
down a hollow hall

Holding onto names
Like a phantom call
that echoes on and on
down a hollow hall
Track Name: teriyaki
Puffiin piff for epiphanies

I want the anonymity

But love it when they fuck with me

So stuck in this conundrum of just what I want myself to be

Conflicting views bout destiny,

Have left me restless thinking every time I wannna go to sleep*



And it’s been holding me back

Can’t even remember when I last sat and wrote on a track

Cause it’s like every time I tried my thoughts would just lapse

And I would quit pissed off at the talent I lacked*

Or the talent I lost because I know it was there

When I had a younger hunger that would spit and not care

But now THAT I’m getting older I can feel the stares

From disbelievers in the shadows cast under the stairs



But that’s the road to success and it’s a one way street

and they’re always gonna hate ya when they’re under your feet

so just keep stepping,* one foot in front of the other

and keep close to your family, your friends and your brothers

Defend the honor of your name, and your sisters and mothers

And you better be sure if you think that you love her.

better be sure…


.......


But then again it bothers my momma

And a vice is a vice

And I know she gets so scared that she’ll lay up at night

But trooper’s a trooper,* so I’ll be alright

I’m the underhanded bandit snatchin your spotlights

and your mics

I think a few raps will suffice

Hot and ready to order with your mobile device*

And you better get it quick cause for a limited time

This legendary fire costs free-99



Don’t try to tell me that I’m not way ahead of my time

Anyone who speaks differently has gotta be lying



Said they gotta be lying....
Track Name: Pennsylvania Winter Kills Us All, Again
*VERSE*

forlorn the empty sidewalks,
this light will soon belong to dusk
old daydreams break the cold air
my conscience craves for what was
snow on the empty sidewalks
mutes sound on gentrified blocks
old daydreams break the cold air
my conscience craves for what was



*CHORUS*

I shudder when the leaves begin to fall
the Pennsylvania winter kills us all
I shudder when the leaves begin to fall
the Pennsylvania winter kills us all



*VERSE*

forlorn the empty sidewalks,
this light will soon belong to dusk
old daydreams break the cold air
my conscience craves for what was
snow on the empty sidewalks
mutes sound on gentrified blocks
old daydreams break the cold air
my conscience craves for what was



*CHORUS*

I shudder when the leaves begin to fall
the Pennsylvania winter kills us all
I shudder when the leaves begin to fall
the Pennsylvania winter kills us all
