Track Name: It's Whatever
Verse 01:
You can forgive and forget but if you forget to forgive
You won’t get a moment of peace fleeting it is
Tried piecing back the token moments I lived
The broken to bits floatin’ components I miss
Youth stolen for kids they don’t know what it is
What they got what a kiss
From a girl you won’t ever forget what her name is
Its moments like this that make you know your alive
Grow you inside til you arrive at the point in the travel
Where downhill’s an uphill battle
Up here where the sun don’t have a shadow
But you still feel the dark grab you like you the moon
Looking down on what you had before they had you
Its a cycle that traps you
You don’t have any say they’ll never ask you
And if they had to you’d still be an asshole while it passed you

Chorus: x2
Its a quick deliver that give her the shiver
It is what it is its whatever
Its something its nothings its never
Its an on off lever that don’t move off ever

You don’t understand what a king does for his castle
Before you get shackled sing with a crackle
At the top of your lungs for the things that you have to
I hope you hold on for a little more then they usually allow
Get lost in the now before it clouds
Becomes a picture possessed and caressed
When things become stressed
When songs become moments in time
In the moments you find cold and unkind
If only rewind was an option
But its not be bold and go off in the unknown
Be cautious have a conscious
Take this page and make a story that don’t bore me
Not guts no glory or something corny
And if in the mean time you stop to reflect
I hope you find a pause you respect

Chorus: x2
Its a quick deliver that give her the shiver
It is what it is its whatever
Its something its nothings its never
Its an on off lever that don’t move off ever
Track Name: Walls
Verse 01:
Bang my head against the wall til the wall banged back
The wall kicked me out it said never come back
While I was still walking the walls were still talking
I never looked back
Now I’m walking down the road with no one to care about
No one knows my whereabouts or what I’m wearing out
Wearing out these cries I know about the lies
These walls can talk you don’t think they got eyes
Paint to disguise em advise em
Swat away flies when you find em mind fuck or fight em
Over every item aint tryin’ to hide em
Put em in a line so you can eye em
Divide em iotas I do or do not know of
I got no motive no modus haven’t you noticed
These walls suffocated me at my lowest
Now their laughing while I walking away homeless

Chorus: x2
Its the world that we living in swimmin and driven in
They pound and they pin you in walls you been sinnin in
If you find a way out they find a way to find and put you in
Back in the walls that you’ve given in

Verse 02:
These walls can’t keep a secret knee deep in deep shit
One crack they leak it in the street seathing
Stiill feel the walls breathing dread hate the evenings
Demons in my bed sleeping dream that I’m dreaming
No breath no breathing leaning over ledges with no leverage or i’m bleeding
Mind grieving make believe is what I’m made to believe in
That’s why I’m leaving
Can’t handle that call an ambulance try to grab a branch
Keep from falling while walls fall its an almanac
Predictable but not a fact check the artifact
You in the ruins sack with no map to pack
Walls got alarms to hack disarm and unjack
The power supply tell it goodbye telekineses
The power to walk away with your mind still intact
Before it falls into pieces

Chorus: x2
Its the world that we living in swimmin and driven in
They pound and they pin you in walls you been sinnin in
If you find a way out they find a way to find and put you in
Back in the walls that you've given in
Track Name: Where'd Riley Go
Verse 01:
A new house on a new street not a few feet it was a ways
By a few streets and a highway the trucked swayed as the trailer made
Its way to a place where I wouldn’t stay shoulda prayed for another day
Another year but we were here she was moving I was moving her
She was smiling I was blue big box small box one or two
Of this and that from a room she wouldn’t use
To this new room with new friends I couldn’t view
I knew some I didn’t know him
He was in the kitchen making food were we rude
He didn’t make a move he was polite
Surveyed the landscape she planned an escape
A date with fate I could she couldn’t wait

Chorus:
I wish I know where Riley went
I wish I'd known where Riley gone
I wish I know where Riley went
I wish I'd known where Riley gone
Where the fuck did Riley go?

Verse 02:
He was a small man I could handle with one hand if I had to
But psycho paths can be cupcakes and candles
Flannels, floppy hair, and wear Jesus sandals
I feared the worst as he cooked I pictured a scandal
I sized him up he wasn’t much
But it didn’t take a big punch to take her down she made a sound
Hey are you dreaming I snapped out of it
It was bed and dresser time I needed to find a helper
Guy cooking only leper so I had to ask him whatever
Hey can you uh this shits heavy can you manuever
These one uh or two items for a minute that’s how I met him
I said hi what’s your name kid he put his plate down became smiley
Turned to me and said kindly “Hi my name is Riley”

Chorus:
I wish I know where Riley went
I wish I'd known where Riley gone
I wish I know where Riley went
I wish I'd known where Riley gone
Where the fuck did Riley go?

Verse 03:
As we moved fumbled thru floors rounding corners dumbly thru doors
Where these chairs wasn’t made to be stored
We bonded on stairs prepared us for war
Up and down flights we talked and discussed
He was from a town not much farther from us
He was a good kid hardly a schmuck
Coulda been larger but a guy I could trust
We finished moving her in I was looking to leave
She was looking at me like I’m looking to breath
Beat I took a hint didn’t need it
Got my things and started to leave it
Riley thanks for the muscle I mean it
Take care of my cargo while I’m not needed
He said todays my last day here I’m leaving
Was I still breathing I must be dreaming

Chorus:
I wish I know where Riley went
I wish I'd known where Riley gone
I wish I know where Riley went
I wish I'd known where Riley gone
Where the fuck did Riley go?
Track Name: Write A Wrong
Verse:
I could give two shits if two dicks touch tips
Or a couple of clits slap slits or clap tits
But I get a bit annoyed if ya boy’s flambouy glamboyant
Just being real its a bit annoyin
Don’t know if that’s homophobic or informin
But the road where you decide don’t jive
Its a road I won’t decide to ride
Or try or settle or pot calling the kettle
Cuz if you hate black discrimination
What the fuck are you debatin
One day new rome will be upon us
Armaggedon should not alarm us
Karma’s enarmous
Bout to blow up a both dogmas
Lets be honest
A few people start thinking it aint right
A few more people join the same fight
Then half the country opens there eyes
Then a whole generation rise
Keep trying to spit shine those views
With a dry mouth and spine that’s loose
While you polishing rules
I’ll be cleaning a conscious
Telling the truth
All the way back from a past I grew
Past the facts I passed as true
I aint always had this view
But I thought Mike Brady was into girls too

Chorus:
When a right is wrong
Gonna right the wrong
When I write a song
You wanna ride along
