some kid If sounds were classified by states of matter, this album would primarily be SOLID. However, the fluid jamming and hazy vocals/saxophone create a sonic atmosphere that often travels into plasmatic territory. Especially during the choruses. It feels something spiritual. Raw, introspective lyrics catalyze all this matter into a jambalaya of nutritious catharses. Mm! Favorite track: Mr. Subliminal.

Track Name: Blue Demon
blue demon paces
patiently awaiting my return
the pain is endless
cry out as i yearn
pain becomes silence
darkness consumes my life
like a rabid dog behind a junkyard gate
the demon persists in strife

i wait for him
i stay for him
left me behind
i'll change for him
i'll take for him
in my own mind
my past it haunts me on my heels
while i wait for a future revealed

blue demon
what do you want from me
blue demon
can't you just let me go on living
you just sit there in wait
while using him as my bait
it's impossible to choose
when i got everything to loose
blue demon
i'm broken
so leave me be

i want to leave
it's hard to grieve
i just can't cry
i need to see
i need belief
this ain't no lie
he stands there across from me
in wait for my steps to be
i'm glad to know

that he's here in the moment
waiting for me to cross over
i see you down there blue demon
way down in the ocean
where you ruined me
and now i see
it's time for me to believe
that i can build this bridge
from the nothin you gave me
Track Name: Temptations
my flame is here burning
won't you come on over and put me out
got desires down into my bones
melt me away and i'm all alone
my heart's always pulling me away
stick around and keep me wide awake
cause i'm here
with fire
and soul
and i want you to know

this static chemistry
it's all electricity
let's connect and open up
turn off the lights share the touch
i got temptations
i got sensations
i got temptations

please come inside
i'll keep you warm at night
oooo
the curves up your legs
your skin on my face
follow your spine
this love for your make
it makes me wanna move
cause i'm here
with fire
and soul
and i want you to know

this static chemistry
it's all electricity
let's connect and open up
turn off the lights share the touch
i got temptations
i got sensations
i got temptations

satisfy
all you can
take my heart
make me a man
swim with me
all night long
in the morn
sing your song
i got temptations
i got sensations
i got temptations
Track Name: This
missed her bus to girl town
missed the bus to her town
too scared to take the risk
and now gotta face the consequences
she never got to see me
for who I really am
oh I’m a seedless watermelon man
genetically engineered for the pleasure of others
so I taste good
and put them in a good mood

think don't blink
all I can do is think don't blink
all I can do is this

she left me at my door
she left me wanting more
but she ain't got the time
to bite into my ryne
but she makes time with her friends
leaving me with her other men

think don't blink
all I can do is think don't blink
all I can do is this
Track Name: Maki
maki you were an angel

i grew up in the church where i thought i saw you
but i've come to realize that it was deja vu
when i go home
when i come home
i wanna see you there
cleaning every corner of every room

cold nights and black streets
a homeless man looking for a place to sleep
rejected by family no friends
the rats and worms they welcome him

he lives in a wishing well
he won't take a coin
talks himself into a deep sleep
with so many angers and wars
his past is riddled
with anything but love
schizophrenic and apathetic
to everything and anything above

maki you were an angel
Track Name: Beautiful Gone Wrong
when coal becomes a crystal
when a jack becomes a king
when your child stands on her feet
when a mute begins to sing
that's when you know
beautiful gone wrong
when everyone is dead and gone
love me like you loved everyone

when your mouth stops talking
and your mind begins to speak
when a rat is told he's welcome
and you've out stayed your leave
that's when you know
beautiful gone wrong
when everyone is dead and gone
love me like you loved everyone

my anger makes me fear my future
lonely breath i'm loosing my mind
this lack of romance makes me wanna love you
but i can't love you if you don't love me too

when a plant out grows its roots
and the roots seek out to drown
when your spine takes a moments rest
when your memory falls down
that's when you know
beautiful gone wrong
when everyone is dead and gone
love me like you loved everyone

my anger makes me fear my future
lonely breath i'm loosing my mind
this lack of romance makes me wanna love you
but i can't love you if you don't love me too
beautiful gone wrong
Track Name: Dunes
sun sits high at noon
wind blows over dunes
bare feet burn over hot sand
my soul flickers a man
my feet give to my knees
my heart's beg and plee
for one purpose
for one circus

i wanna go
somewhere no one nows me
i wanna go
where eyes watch me closely
i'm flocking to the dunes
at high noon

congregate my troubling concerns
earned these hot scarlet burns
wondering over purpose of life
wander on through mangled new heights

i wanna go
somewhere no one nows me
i wanna go
where eyes watch me closely
Track Name: Devil Was a Child
the devil was a child once
decent and pure like yours
drew pictures of his mother
ate ice cream after his chores
but his calling was no good
beckoned here and there
twisting his heavy heart
into naive blank stares

the devil's a working man
just like you and me
he's proud of his work
don't know no better you see
and without his work
there'd be no such thing as a smile
so when i say to you
please be careful how you groove
cause you never know what will happen to you

wherever you go
i'll always know
keep your eyes open
i'll give you everything broken

the devil's a working man
just like you and me
he's proud of his work
don't know no better you see
and without his work
there'd be no such thing as a smile
so when i say to you
please be careful how you groove
cause you never know what will happen to you
Track Name: Sad Man
he walks the streets with no emotion
his head down is his only precaution
try to catch his long gone eyes
except they're tucked way down in every doubt in his mind
tap on his shoulder to get his attention
he keeps on walkin gives no recognition

sad man sad man what they do to you
sad man sad man let me help you to
take em out
straighten em out
set em in doubt
go ahead and set them loose

proud man in your office up high
feed the rest of us with a blink of an eye
with that eye i could buy this world
fifteen convertibles each even the boys and girls
please just let the sad man be
you can keep your respect and humanity

sad man sad man what they do to you
sad man sad man let me help you to
take em out
straighten em out
set em in doubt
go ahead and set them loose

go home and close your doors
or they'll come after you all the more
but i say let them come knocking
we'll put up a fight that'll get them a talking
in honor of the sad man's plight
be tenacious and keep the proud man in your sights

sad man sad man what they do to you
sad man sad man let me help you to
take em out
straighten em out
set em in doubt
go ahead and set them loose
Track Name: Mr. Subliminal
will you wait for me
until i move on
until i learn to cry
will you wait for me
until i loose hope
until i have died

her roots are so deep
dating back to the beat of the drum
she makes me run the woods at night
to follow along her lust
breath she takes me from
keep me from stakes and stars
calling through caverns for her love
until i've carved four skulls

will you wait for me
until i move on
until i learn to cry
will you wait for me
until i loose hope
until i have died
Track Name: That was Then and This is Now
i walked with their bodies
i talked with their mouths
that was then this is now

soaking in pain and betrayal
columbus and portland awaited my sleepy tale
motionless wheels an empty box
they rip and peel time off the clocks

she runs her fingers through the hair of my pain
consoles him
loves him
until himself he's forgiven

to exploit their fears
i explode out the gate
i run as their desire
they wait for bait
from fate

i walked with their bodies
i talked with their mouths
that was then this is now

i'll take the rambler
the freak the geek
the crazy the heartless
the troubled
