Track Name: Man I Am
Got a gun, machine gun man
Feel the trigger it run cool thru my hand
Stare down means something different now
Yes I possess, power of the sun

And its good god dam
It feels so good

I don’t think you understand
What it means to be the kind of man I am

Spine is straighter with hand cannon
Shoulders broader no misunderstanding
I ain’t your whipping boy no more
Touch to head watch your mind flow

And its good god dam
It feels good man

I’m slow, I am steady
I’ll get right when I’m ready

I don’t think you understand
What it means to be the kind of man I am
Track Name: Dead Friends
No it wasn’t simple
still i got it done
I put to bed the beast
and introduced the new one

Cracks along the walls
fill them in with scum
and a mirror sees forever
its hanging from a rung

And I’m, I’m free
And I’m, I’m free
to bow out gracefully

I had my complaint’s
you showed your restraint
so absurd, its fucking brilliant
vibrant, marvelous

we talked in the past tense
yacked about old dead friends
and how we wished we could
go back and make amends
so old, too old

now we’re, we’re free
now we’re, we’re free
to bow out gracefully

now we’re, we’re free
now we’re, we’re free
to bow out gracefully
Track Name: Girl on Street
I see you, girl on street
And I feel my knees go weak
Words twist round soon I’m mute
Watch you pass and then I puke

I don’t know whats wrong with me
But in my head you’re all i see

focus on my day to day
To push your memory away
Idle hands the devil brings
Fill my time with busy things

And you’re gone, thats the end
In my head, you’ll live again
I don’t know whats wrong with me
In my head you’re all i see

Laying in my bed at home
Close my eyes turn to stone
flashing face that I know
Some memory from long ago

Lurking patient you were baiting
hand on trigger hiding, waiting
Open up the flood gates and
you’re all I think about again

Now your back, my old friend
In my head, you live again
I don’t know whats wrong with me
But in my head you’re all i see

Morning noon and night
You whoop me
Morning noon and night
I can’t sleep

Whats wrong with me
You’re all I see girl on street
Whats wrong with me
you’re all i see girl on street

As far as I know you’re long gone dead
But you’re still up in my head
Track Name: Raised by Wolves
You been coming round more and more
Watch you through the peephole behind a dead bolt door
And you got that scary look in your eye
I don’t mind crazy chicks it’s just well I’m kind of shy

Don't you know you got that Axl Rose strut
You be twitching right to left like a snake
It's enough to make a shut in want to partake
In some of your shake n’ bake.

Machine gun tattoo on your forearm
Daydream about hips, hypnotize me just like a charm
Dad said you were raised by wolves
You left home at 15 never and looked back.

Don't you know you got that Axl Rose strut
You be twitching right to left like a snake
It's enough to make a shut in want to partake
In some of your shake n’ bake.

I been scared for eighteen years
My mom and dad reinforced my irrational fears
I think its time, time I cut loose
Take my withered neck out of this old noose
Track Name: Lip Gloss
Reflection missing don't know what I'm seeing
in my mind’s eye it has no meaning
If I’m stuck here it’s ok, It’s what I know
If I’m freed it’s ok, Cause I want to go

Your memory, eats me up,
I said your memory, beats me up.
I can still taste the flavor of your lip gloss
The kiss of death prison shank straight into my heart

And It’s a crying
Shame what you did to me.
You’re a hurricane
I am wreckage I’m debris
I seen your hand
In the pocket of another man
And from what I hear, he ain’t the only one

I feel wild
Yes I’m loco
Like a child
I don’t anything
You messed up
Yea you messed me up

I can still taste the flavor of your lip gloss
The kiss of death prison shank straight into my heart
Track Name: In the Weeds/Strays
Under stars, I am one
with the universe, moon and sun
On the ground, I stand alone
Trapped in flesh, blood and bone

So much to take in,
body’s breaking down every day
I am a stray, you’re a stray
We are all strays

One day I’ll meditate, in a sea of weed
Feel wind blow for all eternity
So I make my peace, dancing on this tight rope
Do what I please I try to cope

So much to take in,
My body’s breaking down every day
I am a stray, you’re a stray
We are all strays

I make a friend we see eye to eye
we bump fists till the day we die
Get high and we run amuck
Just life man, good luck
Track Name: Altered
I got pain in neck bone
won’t you rub it dear
Doc prescribed me five pill
to make my head clear

now i don’t intend to do much
with my mind obscured
insures that the future
it is unsure

the state I’m in has altered
the state i’m in is faltering
the state i’m in has altered
the state i’m in is faltering

Spent my mind its gone
I live with mom and dad
we watch flix on Friday night
it ain’t that bad

threaten me with termination
in my minds eye
photos of a melting world I wave
bye bye

the state I’m in has altered
the state i’m in is faltering
the state i’m in has altered
the state i’m in is faltering
Track Name: No Worries
I’m feeling strange
Words find the tip of the tongue
maybe this change
means that its finally done

I’m on my way
With no worries
I twiddle the thumbs

Love feeling numb
No worries distracting me
Love feeling dumb
A clear vision I can see

I’m on my way
With no worries
I twiddle the thumbs
I’m on my way
With no worries
Erase my problems

Walk till I'm lost
lights flash that i don’t see
tripping thru streets
The emptiness pleases me

I’m on my way
With no worries
I twiddle the thumbs
I’m on my way
With no worries
Erase my problems
Track Name: From My Backyard
My stars pinpoints of light
trillion miles away
From my backyard
I see through time today

Can you see us out here?
We rose from same fire back there

At night
Tiny lights
In sky unknown
And we drift on

Scream , cry, moan
We alone
In sky unknown
And we drift on

We’re all kin you could say
Its all connected in that way

At night
Tiny lights
In sky unknown
And we drift on
