about

You know what makes me unhappy
When brothers make babies, and leave a young mother to be a pappy
And since we all came from a woman
Got our name from a woman and our game from a woman
I wonder why we take from our women
Why we rape our women, do we hate our women?
I think it's time to kill for our women
Time to heal our women, be real to our women
And if we don't we'll have a race of babies
That will hate the ladies that make the babies
And since a man can't make one
He has no right to tell a woman when and where to create one
So will the real men get up
I know you're fed up ladies, but keep your head up

Track Name: I'm Pretty Sure This Is Someone Else's Song, But I Couldn't Figure Out Whose So I'm Keeping It!
The Humility Crew has long disbanded,
we've all embarked for a new shore and landed,
we send smoke signals but won't dip an oar,
we can't rewind our time or even ask for more
and I've been feeling so hopeless lately,
like there's no hope for me and not just maybe,
I want to swim so far out to the sea
I'll find a place where waves can rescue me
but the risks we react with are so lovely in their repose
and on that grief stricken day we'll know we could've done more.
so smile deep, shine strong don't let the fog fill and foul your way
‘cause there's a bright shiny sunny day beyond the storm.
Track Name: (blank)
there's a humble abode, in a heart that you know.
philosophize for me, I'm not surprised.
you sell yourself so short, a pair of pretty eyes.
you got a love for ladies tresses, demure distresses are the least,
of all your appellative problems, revolving round your apple cheeks.
you run the humble side of high wires, within the profession of defeat;
the grating screeching sound, of Roman Candle Winters.
and skirlish treachery.
slow motion bullets come on strong, transient trills as they traipse along,
it's all ahoy or anchors boys, it's no mirage.
and all the ghosts we're running from, well they'll keep on.
white wine and catheters, a lonely lock that's glazed with ice,
we make the world just what we want, we forge low valleys lit by night,
so make this moment to remember ‘cause I'm not yours to hold or keep
you'll never claim me.
you'll never hold no claim to me.
Track Name: Vulnerability As Power, Honesty As Disarmament, Responsibility As A Means Of Discovering Happiness, Destroying Stereotypes And Overcoming Fear Itself
I'll be home by tomorrow,
that's where my heart will be
and though you would to follow,
you can't pinpoint the moment when your wants became your needs
and with a kiss you sealed expectations
your name I'd be remembering
but the mouth it speaketh folly
it's only trusted best, it's trusted best to breathe.
I'm not the boy you take, home to your dear Mother,
but I'm the boy who makes, the best kind...
I'll be home by tomorrow, that's where my heart will be
Track Name: Mother Is A Song By Danzig Not By Me
Oh mother dear I'm afraid of explanations, afraid you wouldn't understand
But you raised me to believe in just a few things, that I haven't abandoned.
Like hope and love and faith of explanations, as to why I am the way I am,
And I'm trying so hard just to stay happy, I'm sorry if I'm not doing the best I can.
Track Name: My Heavenly Father Loves Me
Whenever I hear the song of a bird or look at the blue, blue sky,
Whenever I feel the rain on my face or the wind as it rushes by.
Whenever I touch a velvet rose or walk by our lilac tree…
I'm glad that I live in this beautiful world Heavenly Father created for me.
He gave me my eyes that I might see the color of butterfly wings.
He gave me my ears that I might hear the magical sound of things.
He gave me my life my mind my heart; I thank him reverently,
for all his creations, of which I'm a part.
Yes I know Heavenly Father loves me
Track Name: Tonight i was trying to read pt. 1
Friend I'll ride with you through any storm
I know you can't always be happy, but I think you can do more.
So try not to hang yourself up as just a prize
Don't sell yourself so short as eyes or wear a fake disguise
Alisa, I'll be your dear brother for all time
and though our names may never rhyme, we'll all be doing fine
