Track Name: Whir of Worry
TV’s spillin’ out the lu lu
And I was like, bee bah-bah-bah boh, bee bah boh bee booo

Now even if ya choose news, anchor buddy on da
Bee bah-bah-bah boh, bee bah boh bee booo

The writings on the wall
But you may be unsure
Who is it you call? When everything’s obscure
The orders pretty tall
When you feel that ancient whir, of worry

Summa cum laude on da do doo
And I was like, bee bah-bah-bah boh, bee bah boh bee booo

Ratchet, racket, rebels, roarin’ roo rooo
On that’a bee bah-bah-bah boh, bee bah boh bee booo

Kryptonite in hand, skin is turning green
Shiva’s arms all fan, slowly melting in your dreams
I don’t got a plan
I just really like, splashing through the sea-eee

Come one, come all, on a psychedelic tangent
Tangentially abandon every sight in the sand
And make yourselves at home in a spaceship dome
With the greenery eloping through the pure light opening
Time is trickling, the folks home are pickling
Never get sick again avoid a war and then ascend
Space fabric folds and bends
Slipping past her dirty ends
Colliding through kaleidoscopic isotopic mind waves
Shaving off the layers to the words that you say, would you save me?
I think it wants to save me, if I hold on to bravery
I lost sight of a language, I can’t feel any anguish
Did we all have the same wish?

Did I hit chu widda woo woo?
When I was only like bee bah-bah-bah boh, bee bah boh bee booo

Maybe somethin like voo doo
On the fauna flauntin’ out da bee bah-bah-bah boh, bee bah boh bee booo

The writings on the wall
But you may be unsure
Who is it you call? When everything’s obscure
The orders pretty tall
When you feel that ancient whir, of worry
Worray!
Wuurrrray!

Help me help you. Come on
I can’t see if there’s a surface from here
Help me help you. Come on!
I can’t see if there’s a surface from here

Worry. Worry
Track Name: Seven C's
Throw away your seven c’s on me
I have got a heart content with bleedin’, oowee
Thinkin that you’ll catch me the next time
You just leave me falling
Confusing out wants with what we need

When you were Cryin’, Callin’, Clenching, Crawlin’
Collect, Calm down, and be Cool

Throw away your seven c’s on me
I’ll just watch as u continue freakin, oowee
Don’t you get I know your position, oh
Everyone wants the same thing
Can you state exactly what you see

When you were Cryin’, Callin’, Clenching, Crawlin’
Collect, Calm down, and be Cool

But you just get wasted, you get more wasted
You get wayeeystedddd
Oowee! This girl is bringin me down down down down down
Oowee! This girl is bringin me down down down down down

You were Cryin’, Callin’, Clenching, Crawlin’
Collect, Calm down, and be Cool. (x2)

Throw away your seven c’s on me
Baby throw away your seven c’s on me
Track Name: Msg Frm Outer Space
I had a beautiful dream last night
Woke up thanked God I’m alive
I got a message from outer space
To walk at a slower pace
To love every single face that eventually
A tear fell from my eye
I thought a question like
Why do we have to live and then fade?
Watching my idols fall out of this world
There’s a special place that their soul can exist

Oooo my, me why, one from another life
Time tried not to give in that we’re all of the wind
I got a message from outer space
To walk at a slower pace, to love every single face
That eventually dies

Yeaa, yeaa, yeaa. Yeaa, yeaa, yea… Ooooo
Why, why, why, why
1, 2, 3, uhh!

Oooo my, me why, one from another life
Time tried not to give in that we’re all of the wind
I got a message from outer space
To walk at a slower pace, to love every single face
That eventually dies
We all eventually die. We all eventually die
We all eventually die. We all eventually

Of all the things that they’re telling me inside
They are sellin’ me on my pride
But I will not give in to this world
I got a message from outer space
To walk at a slower pace
To love every single face that eventually dies!

Oooo my, me why, why wha why wha wha
Time tried not to give in that we’re all of the wind
I got a message from outer space
(We all eventually die…)
To walk at a slower pace to
Love every single face that eventually
(We all eventua…)

(Layered smattering of previous vocals)
Time tries not to give in that we’re all of the wind!
Track Name: Rocket Ship
Come sail with me, on my rocket ship
We’ll go blasting into space
Flying fast, and always will

Look into the sky
Look into the sky

Venture with me, on my mystery ship
We’ll find our purpose hand in hand
Ever joyed. Understand

Look into the light
Look into the light

You start rushing for the stars
Drifting further from my heart, babe
I call but you don’t seem to hear
Sound doesn’t work that way up here, hey
Diamonds are keefing in your hair
All of the creatures start to stare
You look back to see if I still follow
That is a pill you cannot swallow
Heyyyy!

Here we are, look around
Everybody’s loving every body all around
All around
(Reverse vocal line)
(Interpolated vocal like reverse vocal and blends out of reverse part)
My Lord he dow given, it was be thou with it
My words, my vocals, God gave me
Track Name: Ghost
You said I’m the ghost of the man I could become
What’s your problem, why even try to wake me up
If I’m still rattling these cans and beating drums
Like the lucid poltergeist that I’ve become

Who earned what words and why is that?
You know all that’s given in a grudge is there ain’t no turnin’ back
So if u hear my harlequin go howling by
No it’s nothing new. Know we’re way way past good bye

I’ve never won a damn thing in my life
Hollywood would chew and spit me overnight
And when everyone starts pulling up their roots
What’ an honest man to do?

I hope that your flowers all still bloom
I hope some form of self awareness takes in the knick of time for you
But I will dig my feet down back into the ground
And watch the atmospheric people loose their footing.. and float around

Ooooo

Who earned what words and why is that?
If your aim is at forgiveness, tell me who is up to bat?
And if u hear my harlequin go howling by
No it’s nothing new. Know we’re way way past good bye

Yeah way way past good bye!

Did you misidentify this tree as dead?
Well I’m not gone
Searing roots, burnin’ red
If I’m the ghost of the man I could become
At least I’ll live and let go easy when I’m done
Track Name: Dreams and Drugs
When I go to bed I have dreams
And when I wake up I do drugs
It goes caffeine in the morning, booze in the evening
Weed when I’m too strung up

If I got stranded on an island, I would bring a bag of psilocybin
Cause I’de be dumb as a monkey at keepin’ alive
So the stoned ape theory’s gonna get it’s try

I do I do, really think it’s true
That consciousness is evolving
Fear will leave you black and blue
I pray I pray, that every single ray of light
Comes shinning down on unawakened hearts
And brings true love into sight

Noshing on a bovines bone
Finish with an ice cream cone
I’m a domesticated carnivore
And a sweet tooth connoisseur

I know I couldn’t kill a thing
But hot damn I sure love a chicken wing
So if your gonna catch it and cut it, skin it and gut it
I guess I’ll let u do your thing

I do I do, really think it’s true
We’re gettin’ see through with the #MeToos
A paradigm’s on the brink
I pray I pray, every single sinner’s saved
So nobody’s scratchin’ and clawin’
Draggin’ along’n, and tryna’ kill the human race

What’s to come, is all belief
Trolls run rampant, among the lazy
This whole game, could be over soon
But we hold the skill, to inhabit the moon

I do I do, really think it’s true
That consciousness is evolving
Fear will leave you black and blue
I pray I pray, that every single ray of light
Comes shinning down on unawakened hearts
And brings true love into sight!
Track Name: Adderall
I had a dream that I bought cocaine
Spent an hour tryna find out where to hide it
Took that instead Adderall cause I couldn’t find a doctor to prescribe it
So I could do print me some posters and immediately spill all over them
Should I throw em in the trash or hand em out for free?
Every man is an island
’Til u find somewhere you can land
Within someones else’s arms who feels the same
But you gotta treat each other justly
And we’re only human thusly
Most everybody’s gonna find themselves in pain

If I could just get a little Adderall
I could be more privy to a hard fall
Let motivation try ta pick apart my brain
Gonna spend my money on distraction
Though enlightenment is the attraction
You never really want it and it’s hard to quit the game
So I guess that’s what my dreams have been tellin’ me
But come on God I write so well and
Why can’t I just be happy with the same?

My ego is an ego addict
So my soul needs a sole sabbatical one a week or so to keep up with it's pace
But when I over do my chocolate, and coffee, and sugar and alcohol
At least I know I’d like to feel my face

So doc if I could just get a little Adderall
I could do more work, I could make the calls
To, stoke waves and preoccupy the pain
Gonna idolize a distraction
Try to cure my fears with action.
Most folks who make it fully know it’s just a game
But I guess that’s what my dreams are tellin’ me
Nothin’ to do with gettin’ a felony
Sometimes I need this music to keep me sane
Track Name: Into the Strange
I am merely a receptacle in the room for your endowing
Ooooo, singin’ into the strange

Blue, black, blonde, blight, blurr
Blendin’ everything together, singin’ into the strange

If I had a dollar for every time I jumped in too fast
Jumped out, jumped back
I’de be a fat cat and livin’ in the city
Croonin’, singin’ into the strange

Please please won’t you tell me that you can feel it
What I’m talkin about!?
Please please won’t you tell me
Don’t you conceal it on this particular route!

Hot diggity, tight, I’m doing alright.
Let’s keep this thing incredibly light, through the night
Groovin’, movin’ through the strange

Psychology, biology, astral physics and mycology
All prudent, groovin’ into the strange

Blast off baby
Hold on tight
Groovin’, movin’ through the change

Please please won’t you tell me that you can feel it
Spiraling through
Please please won’t you tell me, don’t you conceal it
Make it come true
Ohhhh I wish I could can it, spray it, and fan it
All over the earth
Yea, yea that’s what I’ll do
Groovin’ and movin’ singin into the strange

Even your body is electrical
And when it forms it’s geometrical
You must admit this is a spectacle
And our source is hypothetical!

Please please won’t you tell me that you can feel it
Spiraling through
Please please won’t you tell me, don’t you conceal it
Make it come true
Ohhhh I wish I could can it, spray it, and fan it
All over the earth
Yea, yea that’s what I’ll do
Groovin’ and movin’ singin into the strange
Track Name: High in the Park
Pickin’ mushrooms, gettin high in the park.
The trees are breathing. And the world’s a work of art
I don’t feel dirty when I’m done
Matter of fact I’m craving the rising sun
I’m not afraid... Of the my mind in the dark

Ohhh Ohhh’s!

I took some doses, and then picked up my guitar
Felt the essence of my being start to spark
There’s a field that’s right in front of you
A renaissance churning up something new
And I’m excited… To extrapolate the sound

Ohhh Ohhh’s!

Ate some candy, that was packed with THC
(Punk yell octave on top)
God bless America, and God bless u and me
We don’t have to argue any more
The dinosaurs are running from a meteor of facts
That a child knows how to read

I can’t tell u, what the course of action is
I could care less. And I’m in the music biz
If u are unsettled by yourself
Don’t go about it bringing down someone else
It takes practice, and discipline live
I am here so, I will give what I can give

Ohhh Ohhh’s!
Ohhh Ohhh’s!
(Then layered lyrics)
Pickin’ mushrooms, getting high in the park
Took some doses and then picked up my guitar
Ate some candy that was packed with THC
During a drug war waged on you and me
Track Name: Out of the Gray
Out of the gray, into the day with a silence
And there’re so many things that I have got to do
But there’s no lover, there’s no cover
No think I have to say or got to prove
Just hold steady, observe now and accrue

Where did my my mask go?
Swear it was just comfortably on me
I cannot ask tho
Too many people want to build you in their towers of belief

But I’m gonna have to pass
There’s no room for that

Plus I’ve got Jesus, and yes he does appease this
But walking through the valley all alone

It really makes me miss my home
Don’t wanna be a rolling stone

Wait a second. I thought I saw a stairway to heaven
It was just chem trails in the sky with a ripple of harp
This song reminds me, beyond our chemical sedation
Controlling populations is an art

It kinda makes me feel alone
As I traverse the great unknown

Out of the gray and into the day with the silence
Track Name: Dinner in Bed
Don’t let your face grow crooked from the thoughts in your head
Fake tree leaves blowing in the wind and the sun is red
La la la la la la like it or not
There’re shellfish boiling in the pot

Who will be fed
Dinner in bed
Is it all in your head?
Do u need a med?

I wander to ponder through, way over yonder
Do the souls that come and go, ever feel dead?
I know I’m not alone in feeling I’ll always be alone
Where I sleep I call my home

Can I get an Amen?
(Alleluia, addle do ya good to pray)
Do you remember when?
(Soaking in the sun in ocopoco bay)
In that time or place
(Fever swept me off my feet the night we met)
We used to feel safe
(Looking back I know there’s nothing I regret)
In a shelter from the storm
(Pinching pennies just to chuck them in a well)
I felt the digging of a thorn
(Accept the fact that nothing here will last forever)
In a search for grace
(No class or book could ever teach me what I had to know)
And the food on my plate
(Count your blessings, savor moments, let it go)
On a track that’s worn
(Everyday just feels like one eternity)
On an oath that’s sworn
(I know I chose to be here, living life as me!)
Ooooooo!

Don’t let your face grow crooked from the thoughts in your head
Fake tree leaves blowing in the wind and the sun is red
La la la la la la like it or not
There’re shellfish boiling in the pot

Who will be fed
(Have u seen my kitten hunting round’ the garden gate)
Their dinner in bed
(What’s your name my dearie, could u help me elevate?)
Is it all in your head?
(Please tell the lizards on the wall they have no business
Do u need a med?
(Here)
With your dinner in bed
Track Name: As Seen on TV
Everybody wants just a little bit of fame
Screaming to get noticed
Managing the pain
If you slip through all the cracks and get a slot on the TV
You’ll live the rest of life, just sayin’ oh hey look at me

I’m the one that got a slot to say a word for the deceased
Like oh he was a great man, but ya know ya still got me
So everybody follow at the twitter tag below
I’ll post something absurd and try to steal the show

50,000 likes would really mean the word to me
And if I hit that number next week, I’ll times it all by 3
Now for my next attraction you will have to pay a fee
To come hang out with me lord cause I have been on the TV

I’m as seen on TV!
I’m as seen on TV!
I’m as seen on TV!
Now everyone must go so you can leave and watch my show

Yeeeehawww!
