Track Name: George Washington
Sometimes, I get pressured into having too much fun
Sometimes i get pressured into having too much fun

Sometimes, I get pleasure.
Sometimes... I get pleasure

Sometimes, I sit at home and cry at night
Sometimes, I sit alone at home at night

Sometimes I live my life

Ready or not, I'ts coming on hard now
Ready or not, I'ts coming on hard now
Sometimes its black in the bed at night....
Track Name: Hypocrite
I hate you kind of people, I do
I hate you people, I do, I hate people like you

Who don't I hate?
I'ts getting bad
Who don't I hate?
I hate them too
They hate me?
how obscene
How mean what did I do to you?
How mean what did I do to you?
oh I understand it now
oh I understand it..
I cant be hypocritical anymore
I cant be hypocritical anymore

oh, I know its not that fun to give up you gotta give up!
Track Name: Upon the Tempest
I'm tired of living on this violent storm
but where will i go
if i cant live here some more
days, these days of regression
or at least, i think that's what they are

i cant see any other days being much worse than this...

why must they all be sad songs
in the begging i wanted to be all
bubbles, and babies, and puppy dogs
but it end with a night of
loneliness
a night of
openness, of consciousness
of consciousness


So you open up your door and walk outside
what lies out here
I've been sheltered by the clasping grasp of an abscessed memory

Just living in my bowels
just living in my bowels
but what do i have to offer to this beautiful community

So i drink with the chieftain
he says i'm worthy
but i don't believe a thing anyone tells me
i don't know why

i don't know why i live this abscessed memory
i don't know, why i live this abscessed memory
Track Name: Lovergirl
Oh i dont know why, the sun will dry all the morning dew
just when i told you to witness what the reflections could do
and i dont know why i beat myself up for things i cant control
and i dont know why you stay with me, ill have to let you go

i'll have to let you go my dear
its not worth it staying here
im a shell of a man, and im not sure if i ever can become somebody you can be proud of..
someone you could love
someone you call your man

oh lovergirl
youre my lover girl


I remember i told you happy birthday at midnight girl
i remember, i hid a present for you in my pocket
oh i remember your face vividly
im visit by you in reoccurring dreams

have to let you im a shell of a man
and i dont know if i ever can become someone you can be proud of
lover girl
youre my lover girl
Track Name: Jeffery McDaniels
I KNEW THIS LITTLE OL' LAB!
he was a yellow lab
all though his mama was a black lab
he knew he has to make a mission
out of his little questionable mischief

HE WENT TO THE OLD FARM
and he got kick out there
oh, he went to the old farm and he got kicked out there..

i know its hard to be a little puppy dog

so he goes to the store
he knows he's not wanted there
they pretty much kick him out right as he walks in
but he wanted to get a biscuit for his mother oh..

:(
Track Name: Slumber Party
I kissed you in a dream
when i awoke i was so angry
I thought i had finally done it with you
I kissed you in a dream and it felt so real

We were sharing a computer chair
no worries your roommates there
i want her to know i want the whole wide world to know!

why cant you be proud of me?
im always showing off all the things you do
im proud of you, im proud of you

I kissed you in a dream, when i awoke i was so angry
i thought i had really finally done it with you
i kissed you in a dream and it felt so real it felt so right
i remember when i woke up i was happy for like five seconds because i thought i had kissed you in a dream
but when i realize i was just so sad, was just so sad

why cant you be proud of me im always showing off all the things you do
im proud of you
Track Name: Aloof, the Tempest
overlooking humanity from another tempest:

Open your eyes little runner, can you see it?
a statuette of a mother and a daughter
representative of another race to come, only if the Georgia Guide Stones had one more song we could climb upon, and find our way to the other side
were we belong
or at least were we want to be
were we think is good for me
were we think is good for us, oh how conventional!
Track Name: Obscured Woman
Somewhere on a canoe i'm floating but i don't really know where i'm going
i don't really know where i'm going..
With an obscured mistress rowing, i don't really know where i'm going
i don't really know where i'm going

I melt into this beautiful scenery
the plants and the greenery take me by surprise
struggling to focus on the face of this mystery, i decide to just enjoy the ride

we arrive at the top of a water fall to the left of me... or was it the right?
they're sprites! theyre playing!.. or were they faries
with fire, and tents.. oh how merry
it was christmas time, or thanksgiving or easter time or some kind of holiday
because everyone was singing and, laughing and, playing and, look at what im saying
they were looking at what im saying then im snatched and dragged into another

im snatched and dragged into another... how sad

i don't really know where im going..
Track Name: Dissolved
Who says he isn't real?
.....................................

How convenient if i burst into flames
How convenient if i burst into flames
How completely insane

"How completely well versed in all this bullshit everyone seems to be
How completely un-cherished, with all these 'halitational' prophecies
So it hurts when i see my race get unfoiled, on the dinner table of kings and queens" - a concerned human being
....................................

Who says he isnt real?
