The Squeeze

Get Some

Get some rest, it’s fine.

But you best not waste your time.

Keep this in. Keep this in your mind.

Best not waste. Best not waste your time.

 

We’re headed for disaster

Old complacency our master

Slipping down and down this sliding slope

Let’s turn around.

 

Keep this in. Keep this in your mind.

Seek and you will find

But you best not waste. Best not waste your time.

Keep this in. Keep this in your mind.

 

We’re headed for disaster

Nothing set in plaster

There’s still time, this ain’t no joke

Let’s turn around while there’s still hope

Cuz the future’s gaining faster

So let’s turn around.

gas can

Do you see the hands on that man?

They will never let go of the book or the land

Or the gas can handed down from the last man

To burn from within like fire in a trash can. 

 

And when the people come to stand for the last time

And cringe at the Trans-Afghanistan gas line

They put a hole in the pipe and set the whole thing alight

And turn the cold light of day into a landline.

 

You can’t find seven rivers in a night.

You can find a decorated man who didn’t fight.

You can’t find unity in anything but time

And the cause and effect of a criminal mind.

 

So align with the constellation skies and cast your gaze to the east

And reflect on the ways of the fire borne heat.

Don’t collect sun rays until you know how to squeeze

Everything you’ve ever loved now go to sleep.

 

Strong winds collide and the blood runs cold

Over the land where seven rivers flow

Ashes remain of what once was bone

Lying in the dust of what once was stone

 

Did you see the hands on that man?

Summoned from the fire made grains of a wasteland.

A sandstorm with the face of a warlord.

Hide yo kids, hide yo wives underneath the floorboards.

 

Four score and seven years ago

Conceived in liberty and dedicated to the way we grow

We should be celebrating life but instead we want more

Insane acquisitions embedded to the core.

 

So who will be the next to die a martyr?

The thought of one’s conviction is a stepping stone to harbor.

The thought of no commitment isn’t real to a father.

You can water down the mix but the volume makes it harder.

 

So align with the constellation skies and cast your gaze to the east

And reflect on the ways of the fire borne heat.

Don’t collect sun rays until you know how to squeeze

Everything you’ve ever loved now go to sleep.

 

Nowhere to hide all these chains of gold,

Nowhere to run for the brave and bold,

All that remains of what once was home

has been brutalized by this flesh and bone

 

See through the lies that confine the soul,

People cast aside that which halves the whole.

Rise and find a way as the brave and bold

Standing side by side making friend of foe.

Let's Ride

People people! Listen to me when I say,

That if your livin’ is good, you don’t ever have to pay for this

Freedom even if it’s evil, not even stephen seeming to be releasing the demon from within his

Beating heart, bleeding hard, feeling like it’s keeping the beat even, not odd, cuz the beat’s strong.

It’s in the way that you stay elevated on the see saw, pray that you make it to the sweet spot.

Find yourself a balance, find a seed to sow, Hand upon the chalice and eye upon the stone,

My body and soul know why I get higher by the minute.

You inspire me so I’m gonna let the choir try to sing it with a

Bleeding heart, beating hard, keep the people feeding on, livin’, givin’, beathing, eating, find a way to beat the demon, living on your backs, give him what he lacks, don’t hurt the mind, convert the time, swerve and learn to ride.

 

Now the people who get status for having the baddest palace and the fattest wallets and jackets don’t really have a clue about the catalyst occurring and stirring up all emotion devoted to having passionate exhilaration move.

Your body is the vessel protecting you in a test of benevolence. Get a level point of view to see the moon.

Resonance becomes the medicine so get ahead of all the negligence and pestilence and get yourself a brew.

Feeble minded people as an obstacle to possibly eradicate and overcome but teach them something new.

It’s consequently fun to be the bullet in a gun when you can be the one to penetrate the mind with the truth.

It’s all about releasing what’s inside. be the one to keep the people feeling they’re alive.

Activate the brain, maintain with the body, it’s the only way to satiate the mind. Let’s Ride.

 

I’ve been living in the kitchen too long

My mind’s still spinning and my vision really isn’t on

But I can feel the wind I can breathe it in again,

I let it ride, my mind gets elevated quick with the,

Breeze blows trees go peacefully,

My knees is the reason I can free my mobility

So I fly capable to find my way inside my mind’s eye.

Don’t try to blind my frequency

 

And give another chance today

Come on give it up. Up to something real

Just try.. Reach inside yourself,

Find something to feel. 

Let it go and hold on tight.

Out to face the night.

Tell me that you might

Fly into the sky with me

Whattaya got to lose?

Reach out for the stars

Sit right next to me and…

 

Fly on to zion, ride on the wind. (Let’s ride, tonight!)

Fly on to zion, ride on the wind. (Let’s ride, tonight!)

Fly on to zion, ride on the wind. (Let’s ride, tonight!)

Fly on to zion, ride on the wind. (Let’s ride, tonight!)

From peach street to thirteenth. (Let’s ride, tonight!)

From peach street to thirteenth. (Let’s ride, tonight!)

From peach street to thirteenth. (Let’s ride, tonight!)

From pimp street to thirteenth. (Let’s ride, tonight!)

COMO I

I know what to do

Como parle vous

Come and follow me

Into the bottomless bottom

 

I know what to do

Como parle vous

Come and follow me

 

I got a hold of the situation

This situation is killing you

But it’s filling me up with

Reckless abandon

I’m not a fan of the last man standing

I’d rather be leader of the galaxy

And take a dive off a top floor balcony.

 

There’s something goin’ on

Standing underneath a mastodon

A sinking ship is where I ought to be

 

You know I’m out of my mind

Don’t start the countdown until I get high, one more time.

Whatever I do make sure I’m left behind.

 

You ain’t gotta worry ‘bout a goddamn thing

Let the terror unfold man I can handle it

This is my side arm, this is my ring

I’ll bring the pain, I’ll bring the hammer fist 

 

I make a split decision inflicting two times the physical incision inhibited instantaneously messin’ it up again, dog, I did it. I turned a shallow dive into a belly flop. Forget it.

 

There’s something goin’ on

Standing underneath a mastodon

A sinking ship is where I ought to be

 

You know I’m out of my mind

Don’t start the countdown until I get high, one more time.

Whatever I do make sure I’m left behind.

THE SQUEEZE

Come on take a sip and slip into something undefined

 

Hands can’t touch what the eyes can’t see.

Open up reach out if you feel it just breath

It starts with a feeling but it’s not easy

Give a squeeze if you feel it open up and try to see

These reasons why there’s two of me but only one of you in mind.

Hindsight’s 20/20 but there’s plenty more time

I find that my mind turns water into wine,

Take a sip then slip into something unrefined.

 

Come on take a sip and slip into something undefined

It starts with a feeling, feeling free.

It’s so easy to squeeze

 

I never thought I’d let it get ahold of me.

I Never try to hide my face in a disguise.

I never really thought I’d let it get sentimental

Gotta find a better way to pass around the peace pipe.

 

This drug doesn’t simulate happiness.

This one doesn’t demonstrate craftiness.

This buzz isn’t really worth the pay

Synthetiphetimine puts an ache in my pancreas

 

Hot water on skin is medicine.

A dog collar on him isn’t genuine.

This thing is bigger than tianenmen

Gentleman tryna find a better damn regimen

 

This discredited bedouin never did win

Cuz sediment made him irrelevant

Even when intelligence leads us to believe that

He’s one hell of a specimen

 

Come on take a sip and slip into something undefined.

It starts with feeling like a breeze. It’s so easy to squeeze.

Come on take a trip and rip into something unrefined.

It starts with feeling. Feeling free. It’s so easy to squeeze.

 

The squeeze goes round (repeat 4x)

 

The wind goes crying. Goes crying. Goes crying. Goes crying out (repeat a lot)

Bizarre the days

She said welcome back in time,

All along I’ve been right by your side

In my role diminishing your mind

Close your eyes and be blind!

See no point to reason.

 

Drink the rest of your prime ’til you’re out of season.

Ingest the best that’s inside leave the rest to fall behind.

 

Every time I try to get peace of mind, peace of mind,

She wants to get a piece of mine. a piece of mine.

Every time I fight to get peace of mind, peace of mind,

She tries to get a piece of mine, a piece of mine.

 

Crack the code, change the mode

Take back control, break the mold

Mind the rift and the mend the drift

Bind and lift, present the gift

 

Every time I try to get peace of mind, peace of mind,

Mind over matter won’t separate the time.

It’s always spinning.

My head turns water into wine

 

I can find my way with my back to the crowd.

I can find my way with my back to the ground to the crown.

 

Bizarre the days of miracles

Bizarre the days of wonder

Bizarre the days of miracles

Bizarre the days of wonder

Backbone

Stand up and take a bow! You found space in a place and

You don’t have to make or break it.

Take a tip from me, if you don’t got it you don’t need it

You don’t keep it for yourself gotta let the people see it.

 

That’s just the way that it goes, people need to meet and greet

One another and get sweet on each other.

Cuz everybody knows what they’re doing ’til they

Don’t, Don’t stop, won’t stop ’til you get it get it.

 

Look at the time in a line, it’s not yours but whose is it? It’s not mine, but I won’t forget it.

Don’t cross the line, you gotta bend it up a little and get in the middle of the people. Try to hit it.

If you see the sign, point it down, point it up at yourself. This is a remedy for looking in.

Cuz Mama, sometimes I’m blind, but I see the way I’m moving. Lighten up, shoulder lean, start it up again.

 

You won’t ever be lonely. High times are right in from of me.

Have you ever been busted? High times to the left. Get in line.

 

Backbone to the body not alone

If livin’ ain’t forgiven I don’t want to go home

Some people break bones but they find a way to grow

I’ve been standing up a while now I think I”m gonna go

Straight to the top. Yeah. Gonna take it to the top, yeah.

 

You won’t ever be lonely. High times are right in from of me.

Have you ever been busted? High times to the left. Get in line.

You won’t ever be lonely. High times are right in from of me.

Have you ever been busted? High times to the left. Get in line.

BIG BROTHER

Big brother is always watching me

My brother makes a lot more money than me

The cost of a one time offer is always twice the fee

 

Bury my money in a hole in the ground,

My daddy never taught me how to dig it out.

 

Twenty seven reasons not to die today.

You know I hide away my feelings when I recognize the slightest pain.

I can never say what I want to say

All I do is pay for your marmalade

 

Here on the sidewalk is hard today,

The streetlights are cold and grey.

Here on the sidewalk is hard today,

The streetlights are cold and grey.

 

Big brother is always watching me

My brother makes a lot more money than me

The cost of a one time offer is always twice the fee

 

Bury my money in a hole in the ground,

My daddy never taught me how to stick around.

 

Bite my tongue at the thought of us

Probably just the one thing keeping me on the bus.

I will never do what you want me to

And all I do is burn through an afternoon.

All I do is pay for the marmalade

I never knew how to get it anyways

 

I bite my tongue at the thought of us

It’s prob’ly just the one thing getting me on and off the bus.

I never do what you want me to

Cuz all I do is burn through an afternoon.

 

I don’t want to be the one dumb enough to fund some

Bank full of young guns, nameless and brain dead.

I don’t want the money honey I don’t need a rain check,

I want the neck pain, I don’t need the game set

Matches on fire in a passionate attempt

The flame from the last one flashes and then turns to ashes

Never hit the blunt unless it passes left.

This is something I’ll never forget

My neck your collar

Your debt my dollar

I gave it all for you
