Track Name: Weird Enough
Dangerously coming to an end
there ain't no finishing this bent thought pattern
gotta stake out, break out, cut through with all my might
like a muay-thai front kick
there won't be no frets on this bass-sick interpretation
of survival dash, I just wanted to crash, just split the mash
but the weak chicks won't have a say
slayers may shut'em up with duct tape
three layers of sick fucks, too late to suck
too late to leave, s'got me on a leash
and I can't sleep, I can't eat I'm not aloud
wish I hadn't been too proud to have a crush
on a crazy ass motherfuck

I'm stuck in a maze
with a mad hatter brain, definitely insane
so how do I cope
I just shut up caus’ I'm too young and too dumb
to know a wrong for a right, a'ight?

CHORUS :
WEIRD ENOUGH
YOU KNOW MY SCRUFF
STILL HOLDIN’ ON
YES I’LL BE STRONG

Heavy heat stickin’ to the bones
and I can't turn back from the danger zone
and I can't hit the sac caus' I'm way too gone
gonna have to smoke a pack and wait for the sun
when it comes out I'll get a cup of joe
and say hi to wrinkled ladies walkin’ real slow
they'd nod their heads with a wry smile
to let me know what they think of what I did last night..

I'm stuck in a maze
with a mad hatter brain, definitely insane
so how do I cope
I just shut up caus I'm too young and too dumb
to know a wrong for a right, a'ight?

CHORUS :
WEIRD ENOUGH
YOU KNOW MY SCRUFF
STILL HOLDIN’ ON
YES I’LL BE STRONG
Track Name: Scholarship
You coulda had anything that you wanted
you coulda been sitting on top of the world
but now you seem like you're haunted
and I shoulda left you when I could

It's so hard to keep on smiling
you never even really share that much
so hard to keep believin'
that you really appreciate my touch

CHORUS :
WHAT-YOU'RE TAKING IS TOO PRECIOUS TO NAME
IT'S ALWAYS THE SAME-WHY ON EARTH CAN'T YOU SEE x 2

Iou say you can't trust anybody
but tell me have you ever tried
and slowly, slowly
I think I'm coming out of confusion love made me feel x2
I find out a little more each day, what you call love just can't be real
everytime you call my name I feel I have this kind of pain

CHORUS AD LIB
Track Name: 21st Century
Thus came the 21st century, with all its wonders and mysteries
it was going to be beautiful, a spiritual century, if one can be

But something isn't quite right, it's all going too fast and the lights are too bright
I have so many big brothers it ain't even fun
I don't get attention though caus’ I don't own a gun
Oh well I got internet and that saves the day
I surf innocently while some get their way
to secrets I heard were well kept,
is there anything you did that you might regret?

But some-times-you-say
that I'm so lost in

CHORUS:
AN ERA OF TERRA-FYING TECHNOLOGY x 4

Somehow I'm not really convinced the world would be a better place
if science expands without boundaries we could all end up havin’ the same face
so scared to fall behind we only go in circles
if the journey is what matters, man look at those hurdles
yes higher, stronger, faster it's all in the drugs
and by the time you're 35 you'll be feeding bugs


But some-times-you-say
that i'm so lost in

CHORUS:
AN ERA OF TERRA-FYING TECHNOLOGY x 4

Thus came the 21st century, with all its wonders and mysteries
it was going to be beautiful, a spiritual century, if one can be
Track Name: Undone
CHORUS:
EVERYTHING HAS COME UNDONE
I SHALL NEED WISDOM TO OVERCOME
MAY THERE BE LOVE IF LESSONS ARE FROM THIS LIFE WELL EARNED
AND THIS LIFE WELL SUNG

I just want to let these bad dreams breeze by
when my thrills couldn't chill and my mouth was all dry
seems I've been through this oh so many times
I got too man words in my head but not two that could rhyme

CHORUS:
EVERYTHING HAS COME UNDONE
I SHALL NEED WISDOM TO OVERCOME
MAY THERE BE LOVE IF LESSONS ARE FROM THIS LIFE WELL EARNED
AND THIS LIFE WELL SUNG

When I yawn I realize that there is nothin’ to do
I sit and wait, no contemplate
I'm not at all in such a bad mood
seems I've been through this oh so many times
I got too many words in my head but not two that could rhyme

CHORUS:
EVERYTHING HAS COME UNDONE
I SHALL NEED WISDOM TO OVERCOME
MAY THERE BE LOVE IF LESSONS ARE FROM THIS LIFE WELL EARNED
AND THIS LIFE WELL SUNG
Track Name: Rough Times
The shores of patience are thinning
when all you meet is frustration
talking to people inside you
gives the insight, then puts you in motion

So set sail from the beach
let the deep waters reach
without fearing to know yourself
make ripples of light in the shadowy night
of overwhelming consciousness

CHORUS :
ROUGH TIMES
ARE GOOD SIGNS
THAT IT CAN ONLY BE BETTER SOME DAY
BUT SOMETIMES IF LIES RHYME
YOU START BELIEVING ANYTHING

Life's constant confusion
is what you've been used to
breaking the pattern of destruction
is the hardest thing you can do

So set sail from the beach
let the deep waters reach
without fearing to know yourself
make ripples of light in the shadowy night
of overwhelming consciousness

CHORUS :
ROUGH TIMES
ARE GOOD SIGNS
THAT IT CAN ONLY BE BETTER SOME DAY
BUT SOMETIMES IF LIES RHYME
YOU START BELIEVING ANYTHING
Track Name: Huff 'n Puff
I am sam, sam I am
do you like green eggs and ham
I don't eat ham, sam it tastes like man
wake up and smell the hot sham, damn
there's no control, the roles are shown
but the rules are not, if you miss the point
can't connect the dots
well here's your shot, duck quick or rot
heck it's a trauma, collective coma,
slow down with a comma,
break your neck sneakin’ in the sauna
patience queenie virtue is a lesson to learn
now be a good kid and don't miss your turn

CHORUS:
HUFF AND PUFF YES THEY’RE GONNA COME DOWN
THE UNIVERSAL BULLSHITTERS GONNA COME DOWN
ALL YOU YOUNGSTERS WHO WEARIN’ A FROWN
NO WORRIES YES WE’RE GONNA COME AROUND

i double the scores and i double the rhymes
caus i double the times and i double the tongues
i double the sting-ing ka-ching bling
whatever you sing i come and sing it better
the flow on toast,like butter ,slice the cheddar,
heada, you know you're sore
but i keep on hittin
want mo' bleach ho ha ,i saw you comin'

BRIDGE:
PITY WE DON’T NEED
LISTEN TO LYRICAL WEED
AND THE BEATS LIKE SPEED
KEEPS THE COMPETITION CLEAR

CHORUS:
HUFF AND PUFF YES THEY’RE GONNA COME DOWN
THE UNIVERSAL BULLSHITTERS GONNA COME DOWN
ALL YOU YOUNGSTERS WHO WEARIN’ A FROWN
NO WORRIES YES WE’RE GONNA COME AROUND

BRIDGE:
PITY WE DON’T NEED
LISTEN TO LYRICAL WEED
AND THE BEATS LIKE SPEED
KEEPS THE COMPETITION CLEAR

CHORUS AD LIB
Track Name: Strong & Free
What makes my teeth crooked is these twisted conversations
what hasn't sunk into my brain are the subtleties of negotiation
soo, I still complain like a kid who needs an education

Am I wasting my time, drinking the wrong solution
am I boring you with my poor condition
-my eyes saggin’ like old tits-

In my magical fairy world I always say the right thing, the right time
but in this fierce reality it's a short stop and a sudden drop

CHORUS :
RETHINK YOUR PRIORITIES, THE WILDNESS IS INSIDE
RESHAPE THE POTENTIES OF THE SOUL LET IT GLIDE
TO A NATURAL WAY, STRONG AND FREE
TO WHAT YOU REALLY WANT AND WHAT YOU REALLY WANT TO BE


What hasn't sunk into my brain are the subtleties of negotiation
soo, I still complain like a kid who needs an education

Am I wasting my time, drinking the wrong solution
Am I boring you with my poor condition

CHORUS :
RETHINK YOUR PRIORITIES, THE WILDNESS IS INSIDE
RESHAPE THE POTENTIES OF THE SOUL LET IT GLIDE
TO A NATURAL WAY, STRONG AND FREE
TO WHAT YOU REALLY WANT AND WHAT YOU REALLY WANT TO BE
x2
Track Name: The Next Day
No, no there hasn't been another man
woman, spirit or thought that hurt me so bad
so lost was I, in the desert so long
that spiders and snakes crawled out to sing me a song

CHORUS :
DREAMS DRAG AROUND MY HEAD
FOG IS CLOGGIN’ MY EYES UP, ALL RED
FRUITS I CAN’T EAT ROT IN A BOWL
VIBES I CAN’T BEAT RATTLE MY SOUL

A mere whisper at first
it became a howling chant
wouldn't let me go, I insisted I can't leave him I just can't
as it rose and rose louder from the depths
reaching my heart, my soul, my mind
I had to face the deaths
of this love, of that life
no longer prisons would confine me
no longer could the warden bribe me

CHORUS :
DREAMS DRAG AROUND MY HEAD
FOG IS CLOGGIN’ MY EYES UP, ALL RED
FRUITS I CAN’T EAT ROT IN A BOWL
VIBES I CAN’T BEAT RATTLE MY SOUL

Leftover soup is drippin’ down the drain
why not I skip a dish and wash my brain....
Track Name: Tip
Whenever you are called on to make up your mind
And you are hampered by not having any
The best way to solve the dilemma, you’ll find
Is simply by spinning a penny
No not so that chance shall decide the affaire
While you’re passively standing there moping
But when the penny is up in the air
You suddenly know what you’re hoping
Track Name: Angels
Morning sickness lasted all day
I'll feel better tomorrow anyway
then again maybe not
hard to admit this is part of the plot
exceptional as we all want it to be
this happens all over the world to so many
blessed event oh yes it is
thought I would be prepared
that's right Em you're such a wiz
and there's no doubt I've been cared for
regardless of all the bad times
somehow someone
picks me up and takes me away
picks me up and takes me away
from dead ends and decay
and despair and dismay
and pain and all the rest

THESE ANGELS ARE THE DAMN BEST

somehow someone
picks me up and takes me away
picks me up and takes me away
from dead ends and decay
and despair and dismay
and pain and all the rest

THESE ANGELS ARE THE DAMN BEST
Track Name: Automatic
Collapse, calypso, captain
Rufus in a tin can cantine
Sober up, fishin' in a tank
War zone, combat boots
Liars, pants on fire, on a wire
Combination stardom-freedom
Petrify guar gum meditation
Tribulations family
Prince is dying, hiding
Sweat and tears, tears for fears
Musical drama, hackers wanna be stars
Planets new, discover others not new
But exciting that this year more than one sun
rises, shines and falls

Underdog, hateful gem of a warrior
schematic figures of lethal targets
why make sense when you can make none?

CHORUS :
FORGOT TO TAKE MY PILLS, OH SHIT
GUESS I’M GONNA GET A LITTLE CRAZY NOW
I NEED SOFT SOUNDS TO HELP ME GET DOWN
IF I START SHAKING JUST SHAKE WITH ME

Plastic, cardboard
Boarding pass (have a good trip)
Pass the spliff, spit on the ducks
and drown in a pond
Power to women, men with no ego
Go to the front, step to the back
Back inside of me, lonely looney
Tunes for free, free Tibet
Bet your ass ass is big
Mambo thrills, pills to chill
Chill to stone, stoned to the bone
Bones of knowledge get sledgehammered (ouch)
isn't that wonderful?

Underdog, hateful gem of a warrior
schematic figures of lethal targets
why make sense when you can make none?

CHORUS :
FORGOT TO TAKE MY PILLS, OH SHIT
GUESS I’M GONNA GET A LITTLE CRAZY NOW
I NEED SOFT SOUNDS TO HELP ME GET DOWN
IF I START SHAKING JUST SHAKE WITH ME
Track Name: Let's Play Dumb
CHORUS:
THAT IS JUST THE WAY IT IS AND WHAT ELSE CAN WE DO
LET’S PLAY DUMB, YES WE’RE JUST A BUNCH OF FOOLS x2

Let us wait and wait and wait until it’s too late
let’s have other people decide our fate
that is just the way it is and what else can we do
let's play dumb oh yes we're just a bunch of fools
complacency deadens the soul
but do hear the cries from the world and under
can we listen though, can we most importantly
respond and attend to those who need it most
to those who need it most

CHORUS:
THAT IS JUST THE WAY IT IS AND WHAT ELSE CAN WE DO
LET’S PLAY DUMB, YES WE’RE JUST A BUNCH OF FOOLS x2
Track Name: Wakarimaska
Wakarimaska
What exactly don't you get?
We throw bombs freely and freedom is just an excuse
We throw nets to catch the eye of the innocent TV watchers
We give you readymade dreams
So you don't work so hard at making yours come true
Isn't that wonderful?
But I have a weird feeling of helplessness mixed with fear
Of this degrading world losing its temper
And while I lose my head, fundamentally ill leaders tread
In historical schemes of schism

But you know complacency deadens the soul
But do we hear the cries from the world and under
Can we listen though, can we most importantly
respond and attend to those who need it most

Who will lead us against the wicked witches of the West
Who will terrorize the official authorities of terrorism
Who will finally have the courage and strength to fight back
However you can, fight back!

Caus' our children will blame us for being shameless
Will blame us for promoting ignorance
Will blame us for blaming other people and never taking a stand
And what will we stand for then?
Track Name: Dark Beats
Dark beats are breaking my heart
Making me remember where I went wrong
The man on sax just playin’ his part but he makes me feel
Like I'm part of his song
Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’ into the future
But my memory keeps on slippin’ sideways in my tangled brain
So it gets caught in knots,
A matrix-like twitching gives me an itching pain sensation
The black widows of my imagination
Haunting precious hours and spookin’ me round
Why the fuck hasn't anyone found me yet?
I'm there in a corner can't you see?
Who cares anymore nobody's feelin’ sorry
Hell, I'm not complainin', keepin' a mouth shut
came with the job
Or maybe shoulda tried hookin' up with silent bob
No regrets, no pain no gain no more
Fuck that philosophy of less is more
More or less no one could care less
Caus’ careless caresses killed my confidence
There's no coincidence, hard to admit but it's real
I'm gonna have to cut my own deal
