about

Track Name: Two Days (featuring Sierra Swan)
TWO DAYS

i can see us trading treasured pains
- i'm willing, i'm willing, i'm willing now
sacrifice my pleasure in your reins
- i'm willing, i'm willing, i'm willing now

there's something telling in the way you hold my hand today today
i love the feeling of your breathe upon my neck today today

you and i are different but the same
- i'm willing, i'm willing, i'm willing now
knowing you'll be home can make my day
- i'm willing, i'm willing, i'm willing now

we found our faces on the day that we first met today today
we leave our traces with the blood lust that we shared today today

i like the wicked way we have to co-exist today today
we stay together 'cuz we like a little death today today
all day
all day
two days
two days
all ways
always
Track Name: Pocket Of Secrets
POCKET OF SECRETS

i like to walk out in a drizzling rain
and look for people who are doing the same
then i run run run
i run run run

i buy my tickets at a grocery store
i fly to Vegas i'm a gamblin' whore
i'm so gone gone gone
so gone gone gone

i've got secrets in my pocket
i've got secrets in my pocket
i've got secrets in my pocket
they're in my pocket of secrets

i like my music with a dangerous tone
turn that guitar up then skin it to the bone
gimme more more more
i want more more more

i find myself in a shadowy room
it's only me and a rickety broom
but it's on on on
we're so on on on, yeah

i've got secrets in my pocket, i've got secrets
i've got secrets in my pocket, they're all my secrets
i've got secrets in my pocket, hey yeah
i've got secrets in my pocket, they're in my pocket of secrets
Track Name: Just Because I Want To
JUST BECAUSE I WANT TO

i take my car out for a drive to see what's going on
i run with friends, stay up all night, drink scotch until the dawn

just because i want to
just because i want to

i might get high, i might get loud, they say i'm pretty tough
but sometimes the only love you know can treat you pretty rough
i ain't dead, i ain't over, i'm happening all around
won't sleep all day, won't fade away, i go out on the town

just because i want to
just because i want to
oo ah ah oh
just because i want to, want to, want to, want to,
want you, want you, want you, want you...

i'll find a girl to rock my world and bang her like a gong
i take her down and spin her 'round until it gets her off
Track Name: Musta Been Outside
MUSTA BEEN OUTSIDE

You musta been outside when the news was sent in
They were countin' sheep before the votes were even in

Hear what I say
Something's wrong
They're coming now
For our bones

The world is fallin' to pieces, what's so funny 'bout that?
They put so much love and understanding into swingin a bat
Got a new box
For the judgment day
So much information, meducation, defamation is coming our way

Hear what I say
Something's wrong
They're coming now
For our homes (bones)

We're monkeys in cages....
Quit checkin' your phone...

Why are God and the government such a big deal?
Me and my mama think it's pretty surreal

Hear what I say
Something's wrong
They're coming now
For our homes (bones)
Track Name: So When's It Done?
SO WHEN'S IT DONE?

i spend another day on the trigger tonight
just to get what i'm after
is it the end or will i get by?
please tell me how

when all signs say i should run
not all sides have so much fun
so when's it done?

danger stems from the other guy
who always has to feed his hunger
shake me up, take me up, over for me?
bye bye bye?

i'll risk it all, put it all on the line
though this time could mean disaster
or maybe just a blur right through my eye
as i run run run

what can i do to survive?
play the game or should i hide?
so when's it done?
Track Name: I See
I SEE

i see people dancing in the street
i see people reaching out to me

they look a little odd and wanting
lift their hands as if the task is daunting

as i hear a band of mediocrity
i feel a little like catastrophy

now what's a man supposed to do about it?
get on his chair and shout about it?

gimme something more than
gimme something more than just sympathy
gimme something more than
gimme something more than just sympathy

ok, i scream from a well of anonymity
i scream alot so i can see
i scream alot for dignity
i scream alot at what's buried
i scream alot and show my teeth

now what's up with this situation?
how can we save our reputation?

give us something more than
give us something more than just sympathy
give us something more than
give us something more than just sympathy

don't calm me down, don't try to calm me down
don't call me, you can't call me
you can't fault me, you have fallen down
Track Name: No Miracle
NO MIRACLE
i'm waiting here, i'm wearing signs
no time left, head's on fire

my body aches, my heart just burns
i might explode, might expire

if you don't come back to save me
when will you come back to save me?

it's where i've been, you know it well
open your eyes, feel this hell

no solace in this solemn fight
no miracle no miracle

why won't you come back to change it?
when will you have to face it?

what will we miss, what will we miss
when i come back, when i come back
what will we miss, what will we miss
when i come back, when i come...

back...
when i come back to save you
save you
Track Name: All Her Memories
ALL HER MEMORIES

The world was flat all over against her
Reflected in the backs of her corneas
All was well in particular moments
She bathed herself in particular truths

She was a tireless luminary
Of what was on her planet at night
She clawed her way through every moment
She wrote her own epitaph twice

All her memories

She remembers opening presents
That had nothing to do with her
Catastrophy strikes without awareness
While everyone shares her pieces of life

All her memories
All her memories
All our memories
All our memories
Track Name: Assess, Price, & Value
ASSESS, PRICE, AND VALUE

who are these things for?
are they for others?
do they help forge relationship?
do they impress (clutter)?
do they reflect who you're becoming?
do they give you pleasure?
are you waiting to use them?
do you think they'll make you better?

end each day going through things, clearing, organizing for the next new day - otherwise, the days get bogged down with each other.

is consuming material things consuming you?

assess, price, and value

who benefits?
Track Name: Beautifully Loud
BEAUTIFULLY LOUD

can you tell me what's up with that sound?
i think it's so beautifully loud today

listen while it grinds above the ground
incredibly beautifully loud that way

wake up hungry people in this town
it's here and it's so beautifully loud please stay

this could really be a once-a-lifetime moment
when everything comes our way
sometimes the best comes without notice
make sure it doesn't slip away

nothing's gonna keep our spirit down
if we shout it beautifully loud each day

can you tell me why you make that sound?
i think you're so beautifully loud today
