at an unknown time
time entry
jumping in a rhyme
waxy medley
stride up to you
what will you say?
you were pre-deemed fine
maple cherry
i drop grace in a line
you drop a smirk of envy
we start something sweet
it’s bitter today
as i sit on a lump
collection of bits
as i remember the things
the things i did not say
as i wonder on my lump, hey
as i wonder on my lump, hey

wonder on a lump, ahh-ooo (x2)

driving down 3rd ave
i’d be an architect
if i took that right
instead of the left
when i said no ma’am
if i said yes
i would remember things
i thought i left
i’d make goldfish sing
get some playas rings
i could hold up a levy
and they’d be living
i could be who we need
as i wonder on my lump
(as i wonder on my lump)
as i wonder on my lump, hey
(as i wonder on my lump, hey)

i think about it, and i think…..

Track Name: Reptiiiiile
d-a-v-í

walkin around in their designer clothes
say what you tell me makin enemies in my own home
playin on my fear?!: kid insufficient
ego-wisher, family fissure, “mind your’s, mind your business loans,
boy shut up listen here!
go and fetch me a beer!
i’ll mask this broken, joking anything that is unclear
you’re young can’t understand
why, how, if i’m a man
even if the definition’s flaky like a bran”

“pop the cherry,
just don’t hurt me
forgot the diary
it all is irie

on the contrary
you remarry
forgot the diary
it all is irie
pop the..”

reptiiiiile
from the beers with the little baby
“it all is irie”
reptiiiiile
engineer of a pretty lady
“it all is irie”
(x2)

kill the excuses
done and you passed debt
paying tabs, flipping cabs, missing DNA tests
and now the pressure’s on
your image your cell phone
holding pictures missing scriptures of what you fake to know
what a blow, daddy go dust to dust to your holy home
study long, dad is gone, gotta keep your lights on (x2)

“pop the cherry,
just don’t hurt me
forgot the diary
it all is irie
(gotta keep your mind goin)

on the contrary
you remarry
forgot the diary
it all is irie
(gotta keep your lights on)
pop the..”

reptiiiiile
from the beers with the little baby
“it all is irie”
reptiiiiile
engineer of a pretty lady
“it all is irie”
(x2)

you should try..
to be a father, no there’s no prescription but you’ll find your name is a fiction if you don’t try..
i’m waiting, coping, hoping that one day you’ll find your seed important enough for you to try..
i break down the ducts, i achieve maybe then i will be enough for you to try..
it’s a shame because for a dad i know i got a cold-blooded reptile

reptiiiiile
from the beers with the little baby
“it all is irie”
reptiiiiile

“it all is irie”
(x2)

you don’t know, you don’t know the feeling
you don’t know, you don’t know but i’m free
you don’t know, you don’t know the hurting
you don’t know, you don’t know daddy
(x2)

WICU
“shout to all the bad dads
it must be hard being you boy
knowing you ain’t all you can be
for yo kid and yo seed
it must be heavy (x3)
get it together”
Track Name: Love's Tanqueray
i realize i found love’s tanqueray
along the mango of the day
my heart turns to a red cloud just to share rain
but even if i run astray, not thoughts of you asunder like seeds upon a strawberry
you look at me i feel the pockets along my stomach raise 26 degrees

turn your lights on i’m a fool for black silhouettes (x2)
on my way to you, i love your name
turn your lights on i’m a fool for black silhouettes (x2)
you’re changing me, you’re never same

let’s walk until we stride with unicorns
on the rainbows in Atlantis
i’ll carry the babies like sir seahorse
just promise you’re not praying mantis
we fill the keg with plasma’s dew and i’ll
i’ll drink it just to prove i love you
we’ll paint the scene and make it seen
to find out what comes after

turn your lights on i’m a fool for black silhouettes (x2)
on the 1st plane to you, i love your name
turn your lights on i’m a fool for black silhouettes (x2)
you’re changing me, you’re never same
turn your lights on i’m a fool for black silhouettes (x2)
on my way to you, i love your name
turn your lights on i’m a fool for black silhouettes (x2)
you’re changing me, you’re never same

bum ba ba….
i’m ready for cosmic rides
thrill me, fill me, curve it around
Houdini can’t even touch something like this here magic
even if i see just a silhouette
(x2)

turn your lights on i’m a fool for black silhouettes (x2)
on my way to you, i love your name
turn your lights on i’m a fool for black silhouettes (x2)
you’re changing me, you’re never same

turn your lights on i’m a fool for black silhouettes (x2)
you’re changing me, never same

Track Name: When the Ceiling is Gone
i put my boots on and clear out my plaque
can I interview, i’d like to be your staff
you ask a question and then sit back and it goes.. and it goes

i anticipate and eat cracker jacks
i cook ramen noodles can’t afford cheese and mac
you give me a job i just pay back Freddie Mac
daddio… your daddio

oh, when the ceiling is gone and oh, when the ceiling is gone (x2)

don’t ask any questions they want make this your fate
mandatory work labor your only saving grace
they talk down about you because they say they’re better
change the game you fool, obliterate, restate

i buy you gifts and replace the phone jack
i do your homework, i add and subtract
i ask for my pay you won’t give me half and you know, it’s gotta go

oh, when the ceiling is gone and oh, when the ceiling is gone (x2)

don’t ask any questions they want make this your fate
mandatory work labor your only saving grace
they talk down about you because they say they’re better
change the game you fool, obliterate, restate

and OoooooOooooOOOoohhh
