It Is

LYRICS
Why do you think it is…
Is turns to was?
What’s all the fuss
What’s all the buzz
’cause I’m telling ya…
It always does

When do you think will…
Will stand still?
Hoping it’s long until
We lose that thrill
’cause I’m asking ya…
Have you had your fill?

Now find out how…
How is right now
Maybe time will allow
Us to love the “wow!”
’cause she’s telling us
Seize the here and now
Turning sword into plough
Sowing seeds that endow

It Is (music video).mp4

Flip

LYRICS
Flip your lid and fill ‘er up
No quid pro quo measuring cup
A deal’s a deal be it love or war
Hypocrisy will cut it no more
Wade into the spotlight
The colors fade
No shade of gray is white
Right can not trade
Gonna run
Or stick to your guns
Gonna fight
Or spread wings for flight

Done you did and that is that
Egg-on-face big fat cat
Choke it up… feed kitty
Owing dues sure ain’t pretty

Then Some

LYRICS
I see the memory
Distorts reality
The good ole days
Aren’t as good as todays
History passes before rose colored glasses
Welcome to “the best is yet to come”
Then some….

My recollection
Tinged by selection
The glory days
Aren’t as good as todays
Welcome to “the best is yet to come”
Then some….

I see that the dream
Can be seen
The scene of yesterdays
Isn’t as good as today’s
Welcome to “the best is yet to come”
Then some….

Today’s quite O.K.
Evermore tomorrow
I’ll let the past pass
And grab now while it lasts
Welcome to “the best is yet to come”
Then some….

Then Some.mp3

Unstill

LYRICS
Some may come
Some may go
Others… hell no!
Some… ya never know
Some are dumb
Some they know
Rise above
Let love grow
Rather friend than foe
Unstill my heart
Fulfill let’s start

Take, take, take
Big mistake
Live to give
Lose or win
Am I genuine… or fake
Unstill my heart
Fulfill let’s start

La, la, la
Or, woe ohhh…
Blah, blah, blah
Or, go, go
Ahhhhh… yeah, yeah, yeah
Unstill my heart
Fulfill let’s start

Count To Six

LYRICS
One at a time
Going down the line
Two at a time
Double-down divine
Feeling fine

And what about
Three strikes you’re out
Before four
Just need one more
Four sure

Barely alive
Passing by five
Not a peep
At six feet deep
… that’s deep!

Dead on
Hit the nail on the head
Carry on
Unflail the dread
Dawned on
Enlightened my head
Beyond
where the logic led
Philosophy wed
(Fertile field bred)

The Cost of Being Lost

LYRICS
Please excuse me
Did somebody lose me
And would you hear
“Where do we go from here?”
Where do we go from here

Please steer clear
Getting too near
It’s easy to see
We don’t want to go there
Aware, we don’t want to go there

Meander away
Bewildered all day
What do you say
Maybe we lost our way
Perhaps we lost our way?

Our Bizarre Bazaar

LYRICS
We’re really not that far
Bizarre bazaar
Sideshow for sale
Bizarre bazaar
Save an epic fail
Account for what we are
Two I’s with two eyes
I see two I’s are we
Together you and me — we

We’re really not that far
Bizarre bazaar
Cause the wail of the whale
Seal the fate of the seal
Account for our big deal
Save an epic fail
Account for what we are
Two I’s with two eyes
I see two I’s are we
Together you and me — we

Miracle Of Life

LYRICS
Thinking about the blood flow
Making it go head to toe
I amaze myself
With physical existence wealth
Don’t even need to think to blink
Nor flick a switch to start the heart
Into the craze
Of the ways that amaze
“I’m alive!”
Drive, body, drive

The Skies Are Crying

LYRICS
The skies are crying
Over nature lyin’
(Lion?!?! [Roar])
Ignorance is no excuse
Gonna cut us loose
The skies are crying
Over nature dying
Ignorance is no excuse
Gonna cut us loose
All that you / I / we spew
Gonna rain back down on you
The dent of a carbon footprint
Gonna imprint
My, but…
Ass-k me know questions
I’ll tell you know lies
In “the end” everybody dies
Until then
What if everybody tries?

Flesh Flight Suit

LYRICS
Hope you brought your goggles
Wind whipped watering eye
As you mind boggles
Wind of vain waters your I
Eventually the wind will die
Exponentially the answer to why
As I/eye observe
Under the curve

Photons traveling at the speed of light
Pass right through the windshield
You’re on to something… ideas bright
Spinning molten core of ore’s magnetic field
(interlude: momentary lapse of magnetic field)
Chorus

Colliding with stardust
Bust stardust that’s us
Pinprick holes add to our pores
As the starlight pours
(Chorus)

Flesh Flight Suit.mp3

ABOUT THE SONG
A song about Earth as our spaceship and the delicate nature of our atmosphere. The atmosphere protects humans in many ways, including stopping billions of little meteors from passing through our bodies. Remember to appreciate friction, too… not only does it burn up all those meteors, it also stops us from dying every time it rains.

Up Upfront

LYRICS
I find it most compelling
That you are yelling
“Down in front!”
I find it most revealing
That you are screaming
“Down in front!”
Why not just get up
And put your feet on your seat
Please give it up
Clap your hands
Stomp your feet
To the beat

I find it most relieving
That you’re believing
Up upfront!
The zest you’re retrieving
Makes me feel I’m living
“Down in front!”

Why not just get up
And put your feet on your seat
Please give it up
Clap your hands
Stomp your feet
To the beat

Under The Whether

LYRICS
Walking ’round under sky so blue
Wondering if it’s true… am I under the weather
Under the weather
Yes, it’s true, when its’ raining down on you
Without doubt — under the weather
Under the weather
But there’s nor to interfere
With my atmosphere
Skies are clear
Is it “fair” to say “under the weather”
Under the weather

Walking ’round under sky so blue
Wandering… is it true… am I under the whether
Under the whether
Yes, it’s true, when the hail reigns on you
Without doubt — under the whether
Under the whether
But there’s nor to interfere
With my atmosphere
Skies are clear
Is it “fair” to say “under the weather”
Under the weather/whether

Additional Verses
Yes, I know, when you’re getting snow
It’s easy to know you’re under the weather

For crying out loud! It’s a giant cloud
I’m aware… under the weather

Acts Of God

LYRICS
An earthquake near
Eruption far
Acts of God
Are so bizarre
Our so bizarre
Ever so odd
When lightening strikes
It is the time
Where lightening strikes
It is the place
Now I know I’m
Part of the human race
RUN!

(starting to dawn the race is on)

Extreme weather fear
I don’t endear
At least it’s clear
I’ve made it this far
Acts of God
Are so bizarre
Our so bizarre
Ever so odd
