Track Name: Beginner's Guide
Can you hear the sound of the waves, I can hear it from hear
I think I’ve made it.
Got another several weeks of this mayhem
It’s a rat city It’s a luxury but that’s anywhere

Gotta call ol’ Kelly and ask her for a thousand bucks
A future woman on the twenty dollar bill

Naked, or breast exposed just a little bit
Scared of all the Midwest looks what will I be who will I be
Kiwi meat? Will I stay on fleek or flea back to the city

I got a couple questions about the last 10 odd years
First one, Was I there
Did we use the time we all had wisely
Or did we squander it celebrating everything

Posing, fearing lonliness growing bitter
Or working for an upgrade status someday oh what could it be
What neighborhood, a high rise with a view or cottage
In the country side

How to prepare for a major change
Start selling, packing weeks in advance
Will you cry on your last night? Comforted by courage
Notify, or black Irish good bye?

We ain’t playin’ – we leeeeavin’
Catch you on the flip side

Can you hold the train doors open for a little longer
Cuz I’m comin’

Had to drop the keys off, sweep and do a dummy check
Pay my tabs, and square up with my bank roll friends
I get the feeling this is not unusual, waving goodbye
To the ghetto birds, it must be time for the show
First a compliment to the millennials, it’s your turn to do the dance
Does your tongue knot up when you say adieu, I do
Send a shout out to the freelance freaks doin’ Lord’s work
Makin Major Moves
To the garbage men, to the barkeeps, to the up all nighters, 9-5ers
Track Name: A Little Bit of Both
I want just a little bit of both

You won't say his name
And you would call me everything
Don't beat around this proverbial bush
Just tell me

I'd be happy sharing
This cake is something good.

I want just a little bit of both

Addiction, Sobriety
My Privacy, Noteriety
My Playground, My office space
My Side dish, My Entreé

Would you stay state side
And gamble everything?
What would you call this little game we're playing?

A span of happiness
I guarantee you
Just ask the northern one
Track Name: Plagued By Rules
If I wasn’t plagued by rules I’d be a goner a goner
If she wasn’t raised by wolves she’d be a goner a goner
If she never searched for clues she’d stay much longer much longer
Since we started this here shit, and the rest discussing – disgusting

But just where did you pick up that accent
And just how did you learn that foreign phrase
And how is Sam in Vancouver connected to Jess in The Hague

And just who the hell’s hair is this anyways
It’s not from the hair on my pillow
And why do we fashion these circles infecting the people we know?

Try pulling a fast one while nobody’s looking
The contract expired with memories binding
A system installed, there’s safety in numbers
Sand against grain

If I wasn’t plagued by rules I’d be a goner a goner
If she wasn’t raised by wolves she’d be a goner a goner
If she never searched for clues she’d stay much longer much longer
Since we started this here shit, and the rest discussing – disgusting

Don’t know how I can tune up an engine
Nor how the Floridian escaped
I’ll tell you again and again and again
But my words fall on deaf ears too late

You know you must walk on the inside
When it comes to the bill we both pay
I’d never entertain laying hands on you
But this mental warfare’s a game

If I saw you right now I would talk to you
Now you’re leaving BX for BK
The Rules have been changed by our president
Our love is a scepter

Try pulling a fast one while nobody’s looking
The contract expired with memories binding
A system installed, there’s safety in numbers
Sand against grain, my dear

If I wasn’t plagued by rules I’d be a goner a goner
If she wasn’t raised by wolves she’d be a goner a goner
Track Name: Overcast Man
Daunting Beauty but they spend time in isolation
Go on and speak now, cuz tomorrow you will wake to regret

We found a balance for the scales were always tipping
Look no further than the fingertips of reaching arms

You’ll never know what the future holds
Swim on young sailor, the ship you knew abandoned you for the shore

Mild depression causing thoughts of hibernation
Don’t you go there, we can help you just keep talking it through

I saw your photo, an abandoned store for fabric
The starkness moved me I came full circle on the meaning of death

The Month she came and discovered how the clocks tick
No it won’t be the same until you throw away the theories of time

Frozen language as we wait for inspiration
Still and silent, if we could only read each other’s minds

You keep shifting to find a comfortable position
You must remember that your weight is not the start of your pain

Sun comes peaking through a cloudy days prediction
Stop to feel it – Lift the shadow off the Overcast Man
Track Name: Refreshments
It’s raining and I can’t find my glasses
To see the storm dispelling to the west
The shiver, it breaks my concentration
And I can feel the start of virus in my chest

He Bad She Band and both be bad together
There goes the theory you always want what you can’t have
She good She good and both have good intentions
The radiance of true love understood

Refreshments make all art go down easier
A smash hit ‘fore the forgery’s exposed
While supping slowly in adolescent spring
Their chemistry their bond their comfort zone

He Bad She Band and both be bad together
There goes the theory you always want what you can’t have
She good She good and both have good intentions
The radiance of true love understood

The seasons fail to please us all
What’s spring time for the north, for south a certain Fall
To witness staring from a distance
Mother versus Father Nature’s brawl

He Bad She Band and both be bad together
There goes the theory you always want what you can’t have
She good She good and both have good intentions
The radiance of true love understood
Track Name: The Bright Side
If you’re facing the judge with a fist full of drugs all accomplices fled
from your side

The Responsible one feels the wrath takes the brunt of it all with a false
sense of pride

The Papers all follow you from town to town your exes all forward the
mail

For 36 moons little food on her plate She’s an outlaw in the Salty State

If you’re still up at dawn feeling trashed like a pawn in the game all the
animals play

Light a candle to pray, light the bowl and relate to the wild ones, the
witches, the slaves

She fought for a freedom that doesn’t exist, what’s wrong with these
people she’d cry

Just four years to go and the case is dismissed, we’ll drive ‘round the
boarder or fly

The Shackles will fall to the ground
Released from a spell for a while
Her record was cleaned by the made
Don’t punish a made up mistake

Only two things to choose, either Jail time or Blues, the latter choice
must make you stronger

Be it one state or more, if you don’t know the laws, your sentence could
stretch on forever

The bright side of torture is stories for days
The skeleton’s out of the closet
The music is soothing, inspiring to boot, the slow moving sweet
dissonance

The Shackles will fall to the ground
Released from the spell for a while
Her record was cleaned by the maid
Don’t punish a made up mistake
Track Name: If You Let Me
I’ll fall in with you, fall in love with you
if you let me, If you let me

I’ll fall in with you, fall in love with you
if you let me
fall in love with you

If there’s someone else
I know there’s someone else

I’d like to meet her
I’d like to meet him

If it’s a secret I cannot keep it
cuz all our friends know
that I’m in love with you

So it’s a secret, and you’ll keep it
but all our friends know
that you’re in love with me.

I’ll fall in with you, fall in love with you
if you let me, If you let me

I’ll fall in with you, fall in love with you
if you let me
fall in love with you

Do what you do
I’ll do what I do

I’ll probably see you
when I see you

It’s so confusing
yet so amusing

Amanda hates you
cuz she’s in love with me

I’ll fall in with you, fall in love with you
if you let me

I’ll fall in with you, fall in love with you
if you let me
fall in love with you

Now Ivan Sunshine is spinnin’ that tune
we used to dance to when
I was in love with you

And now I’m dancing and romancing with
that girl that you love who’s not in love with you

She’d like to meet me and probably beat me
but I know
she’ll fall in love with me

I’m so happy for a happier you
being happy for a happier me

Yolo
