Step 1

LYRICS
One step at a time
Pretty soon you’ll find
Climbing the steps of time
One step at a time
Pretty soon you’ll find
Climbing stairs to aware
One step at a time

A letter at a time
Pretty soon you’ll find
Writing a love letter
A letter at a time
Pretty soon you’ll find
She’s in you heart if you let her
A letter at a time

One note at a time
Pretty soon you’ll find
It won’t be long
One note at a time
Hope to write a song
Where I lay it on the line
One note at a time

Wonderland

LYRICS
Might make you tall
Might make you small
… likely do nothing at all
Bouncing off the looking glass
Watch your life pass (fast outlast)
There is no error
Reflection in the mirror
It’s just the verse
In reverse
Looking toward backward

Might make you fat
Or short and squat
What?
Likely just the fact
If you drop and shatter
Does matter
7 years of bad luck
Responsibility duck
It’s all in you hands
Who truly understands

Thinking Of Differing

LYRICS
Take it to the chin
Again and again
Gonna take it to the chin
Argh… where to begin
I was just thinking
Of differing
Ding. Ding. Ding.
Before it starts raining
Should we start bringing it in
Should we begin
I was just thinking
Of differing
Ding. Ding. Ding.
Ring the bell
Just as well
Again and again
Begin doing
Thinking of differing
Diffusion illusion
Exaggeration deflation
I’m thinkin’ of differin’

More To Come

LYRICS
Another one down?
Ate his fate… damn
Another one down
Former class clown
Dread being dead
Dread not being
In meaning
In essence
In presence
No presence no essence
Essentially
Lacking reality
A ghost at most
Just a shell dyin’ in hell
None for me
More life to see
More me to be
F.U. to mortality
Soaring toward eternity
The present of essence in the present
Essence presence
Sense the essence of the presence of our present

Miraculous Us

LYRICS
The miraculous us
They say vertebrae
Overlord of the membrane domain
Our naturalness
In the foray
Of the sane that remain

The infamous us
Destroyer of destiny
Overlord of the membrane domain
Selfishness fetish
Lost in the foray
Of the insane that remain

Are we the miraculous army
Are we?
In support of Earth’s birth
Are we are we are we are
Destroyer of destiny or more man-made humanity
Less terra terror
Become the bearer
Of “are we”
Epitome of are we
Are we are we are we are….
May the legacy of “we are” go far
… down in history
Are we are we are we
We are we are we are

Eyeing

LYRICS
Is you core
Like Earth’s core
Is your heart dense, cold, hard
Or is it molten and meltin’
Cold with the feel of steel
Dense, hard, cold
Growing old
Done all your feeling and feltin’
Or belt down… bowed down… kneltin’
Humblin’ human
Aspiring
Before I’m dyin’
Aspiring
To obtain less vain
Ego crumblin’ more humblin’
n’ put sanity into my humanity
Eyeing I’ing
Can eye see me
Eying I’ing
At my core
Is there more
Hope it doesn’t take all my transpiring
Eyeing I’ing

ExperiMental

March For Science / Philadelphia

March For Science / Philadelphia

LYRICS
What is meant by experiment?
ExperiMental
Good for mental health
Experi-mental
Good for social wealth
ExperiMental
Mental that is meant for all
If you don’t know
Dip in your toe
Give it a test
So you can figure the rest
Don’t be shy
Give ‘er a try
I’m not going to lie
We are all going to die
The trick is to experiment with it
Before you get too sick
Not knowing “why”
Before you die
Got to know why
Before I die
Got to know why
Before you die
Got to know why
Before we die

Better

Better.mp3

LYRICS
I decided to get up
Decided to voice my choice
I decided to get up
And never give up
Come on, we’re doing better than this
It can be your prayer… it can be your wish
Come on, what’s on your wish list
Answer your prayer
We’re half way there
Come on, dreamer, what is your dream
We’ll make the scene
Rinse the mean clean
Come on, I need you, too
Can you see…
Need you like you need me
I decided to get up
Decided to voice my choice
I decided to get up
And never give up
Come on, we’re doing better than this
It can be your prayer… it can be your wish

Learn To Play Guitar

LYRICS
You keep saying
Wish you were playing
Learning to play…
Play the guitar
The time is none too far
You keep saying
Learn to play the guitar
Chances are
It’s not really that bizarre
You playing guitar

If you want to hum, sing, whistle
You can do that, too
Keeping time playing hambone
Gets the rhythm in the zone
You keep smiling
Thinking about playing
Playing guitar
Grab it by the neck
Saying “what the heck!”
Stroke it’s neck
Clapton or Beck?
Playing the guitar
It’s not really that bizarre
You playing guitar

Strike Up The Band

LYRICS
When the band starts playing
Hoping and praying
They play our song
Then the band came on
Sang our song
Yeah, the band played on and on
The best damn show I’ve ever seen
He played guitar that was lean and mean
It made the girls swing their hips
Twirl around and do deep dips
When the band left the stage
The crowd would engage
Yelling “one more song”
Then it wouldn’t be so long
‘for they came back on
Yeah, the band played on and on

Get Your Motor Running

LYRICS
Your motor’s really purring
Got my engine over revving
Imagine… let it happen
The get-up got up… it’s going
Stepped on the accelerator
By the tail grabbed a ‘gator
Might need a jump start
Think you just stopped my heart
Don’t know ho much I can take
Holding the wrong end of snake

Smooth And Slick

Smooth And Slick.mp3

LYRICS
Smooth slick
Watch you don’t slip
Smooth slick
Watch you don’t trip

Smooth, slick… black ice and thick
Which ways (weighs) more: a pound of feathers or a pound of brick
Smooth, slick polished surface
No friction… not a trace
Smooth slick
An object in motion is a trick
Smooth slick
No way to stop it
Smooth slick
Throw a tantrum. Throw a fit
No way to stop it
A little too late? By a bit
Smooth slick
Hope you don’t get motion sick

Looks like we’re taking our slide
Far and wide
See you the other side

Smooth slick
Watch you don’t slip
Smooth slick
Watch you don’t trip
Break a hip. Bust a lip
Smooth slick

Wisdomdom

LYRICS
Pull your wisdom teeth
In disbelief
The numbness of dumbness and grief
On the verge of lost knowledge
Anoint the tipping point
On the verge
On the ledge
Violated pledge
Lost knowledge

Tickled funny-bone
Humor on loan
“Ain’t that funny zone”
Knowledge into swamp sludge
Stubborn… won’t budge
Bets you’d better hedge
On the ledge
Of lost knowledge
Wisdom dumb
Wisdom dumb wisdomdom
Land of “I don’t understand”
Wisdomdom dumbdumb

Screaming God

LYRICS
I heard an absurd dream
Oh Lord heard…
I mean seen an obscene dream
Scream into the mouth of your God
Screaming God into the mouth of your screaming God
When you gleam the scene
Made your God mad
Now your God’s mean
Times ahead could be worse than you’ve had
… could be lean
Our be-havior
Bad, bad, bad
Used your savior
Oh so sad
Out of saviors to save ours
Screaming God into the mouth of your screaming God
God, screaming God into the mouth of your screaming God
Screaming God into the mouth of your screaming God
If you’re dreaming please don’t share your night mare
No more

War, Lord!

LYRICS
Can you ever really win a war
Does it always go a little too far
It always comes as a surprise
When it’s you that’s maimed or dies
The rules of engagement
In need of re-arrangement
War crime of all time
Needs to be owned as yours and mine

How can you prove you’re right
If it always ends in a fight
Remove your nose out of spite
Might not get right with all that might

When last is first, first is last
Surely, all things must pass
Life’s going by oh so fast
Energy — speed of light squared times your mass

War Lord.mp3
