about

These are the songs you hear in your head when the pilot says power down electronic devices and the ducts well up behind your eyes as you prepare to leave before you're ready to go. These are the beats your friend is bumping in the car when you get picked up at the airport and proceed to freestyle teal statues sculpted from visions seen in the frozen tears of goodbye kisses.

Track Name: Rap 4 Voices (Age of Astonishment)
life is fulfilling
smoothed out and lyrical
time is forgiving
motorcycle off pyramids
death is turbulent
so spake the avalanche
tragic brilliance
of angelic ambulance dances

turnaround roundabouts
synonyms for beautiful
belligerent doodles written crudely with doodoo pens
earnest innards
witches and wizards
squeeze a poet’s blood from the hip hop turnip
innocent as
cleptos
red tape and wet rope
crept slow and laid low

UNBELIEVABLE ANGELS
UNVEIL ANGLES

toggle the mantra topped with cilantro
pecans and bananas

CINEMATIC GRAPHICS ASTOUNDING VIDEOGRAPHERS
skinemax sabbath squalor exploding from aquifers
CRYOGENIC CAST IRON CYBERNETIC OPTIMIST
FLY A JET IN LAST LION QUANTUM PSYCHOLOGIST
I FEEL FEATS OF PHYSICS IN MY FEET WITH MY BOOTS STRAPPED
I KILL BEATS
sometimes i get embarassed
for a birthday treat
i got a 9-11 terrorist
when I do rap
i burn the asparagus

THESE ARE THE DAYS OF THE YONDER WANDER
WONDERING
WHERE DO THE WAVES WANDER?
QUIET UNIVERSES BEG NOT A BODY
LIFE IN THE AGE OF ASTONISHMENT

I STARE AT MAD PONDS TO REGAIN AWARENESS
in all fairness
real heads stay aware of this

iNDELLIBLE SWARMS
peace paused causily
OLLEYOLLEYOXENFREE
ya momma wanna talk to me
LETTING NEEDS FREE
FOR WHAT’S HAD TO BE KEPT
from my sprinkler system
you might get wet
bereft of twill bestill the treble clef
you’re FULLY EQUIPT, yet HIGHLY INEPT



WATERING THE LONG LAWN BUT ITS ALMOST GONE ALREADY
rug swept hug theft everybody want a buddy
but i got my nose broken in a double blind study
sleep with my eyes open mind on my money honey

EARTHQUAKE UNDER
PITFALL FOR GOVERNOR
BEFUDDLE FOR TROUBLERS
MODELS FOR REAL LOVERS
TOUCH THE TWANG WITH ENOUGH ZING ZANG
TO GO FLIM FLAM INTO THE FLAME
PROMPT GAME IS TO COURTYARD VOLLEYBALL
AS A PUBLIC NAME IS TO SLIGHT FAME
UNTIL THE FLIGHT CAME AGAIN


syntax and diction
what’s wrong with this picture
a thousand words 24 frames per second


you ain’t gotta dip to dive
trip to thrive
quit the cry
take shit to get alive

you ain’t gotta flip to swirl

kiss the girl

clip the curl

live in this world

jack tha ripper mack tha knive
rap while i drive
i rap unto thee and
i shall rap until i die

you ain’t gotta dip to dive

live to die

trip 2 thrive

grip the mic
kick the hive

hit the herd

slit the nerve
kiss the nerd

write the word bite the bird

trouble the younger meet monger
sing songer former monkey hunter
gathering in packs and mad crews
prehistoric rappers battling for food
down with the wooly mammoth and the sabretooth
angea got mad latitude
but my head is dreaming
cuz that’s what i do


i got a lotta things to do
even more to learn
flavas to invent papers to earn

but you ain’t gotta trip to turn
flip discern click to kern
Track Name: Model (For A Real Lover)
MODEL (for a real lover)
my body pillow is a model for a real lover

in time
arise a myriad decision situations
beg and swallow
justify
exonerate the lust inside
(((Love)))
(((INERTIA)))
no trust defied
one must confide
intimate assertions
learn to diversify
psyche
polite chai tea and tai chi
one kiss worth twenty fifty eight in an instant for instance
quiver sending shivers over powerlines
plural wrist tickle purist
I’m the vocab muralist
whistled tunes reveal the shape of kiss lips
when you are far away i could never think of another
longing for thee i write letters to your mother
my body pillow is a model for a real lover

chorus x2

tender pendulums penciled into your guestbook
life is what happens
when you’re becoming a grown up
attention speaks louder than fair moans
living habits like hair grown
your bare bones
EXPLODING
like flare cones

experience the sickest insignia
feeling healed
real recognize love
rebuild bridges like meniscus rehabilitation
pass out in a field just for the resusitation

blueberry honey buns and fun times
breathtake me oventimed marinate my monkey mind

makes me wannai pop pills and hop bottles
my body pillow is a model for a real lover

chorus

I don’t think I ever learned how to change tha clock
i grow plants in pots
weave plans and plots
throw coins in slots
drinking vodka in pop
like the sword in the stone
tank came alot

babes in toyland
pulling frantic raddishes
conscerned with discernment of the learned hermit
determined to win the tournament
bridge turrets become towers of detournement

feel the twist wiggles in your wrist licorice
the toe tickles invoke rhythms
chills sent by nose kisses

congruent propensities, diaphonous abilities
petrified divinities of infinite ellipseas
my body pillow is a model for a real lover

ITS ALMOST LIKE YOU!
THE SMELT TEXTURE OF YOU!
AZURE TEARS OF ZEAL

ITS ALMOST LIKE YOU
THE COTTON WOVEN BLEND Friend
WHAT I TOUCH WHEN I’M NOT TOUCHING SKIN

chorus
Track Name: Diametric Opposites (Diverse Proximity)
she’s on fire / he’s a liar
she’d approach him / he’d deny her
she’d live him / he’d die her
she’d quiver / he’d expire

(he’s a liar)

he’d win her / she’d get fired
he’d instinct her / she’d get quiet
he’d relinquish her / she’d pull tighter

(he’d deny her)

he’d extinguish her / she’d admire
she’d believe in him / he’d retire
she’d be leaving him / he’d rewire her

(he’d die her)

she’d relieve him / he’d rely on her
she’d hover above him / he’d ignore her
he’d lift / she’d climb
he’d cry / she’d be fine

SHE BELIEVES THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO STILL FEEL THIS WAY
he’s going away to sing songs of the sea
she’s going to find out where he lives someday
HE’S TRYING TO FIND SOMEWHERE TO STAY

he’d shift / she was a line
he’d gift / she’d decline
she’d want to be heard / he’d be looking for signs

(she’d decline)

now she knows why she left him / now he knows why he never wants to see her again
she’d implore him / he’d explore her
she’d adore him / he’d adorn her
he’d star her / she’d moon him
he’d scar her / she’d swoon him
he’d advance her / she’d dance with him
he’d entrance her / she’d enthrall him

(she understands his need to know in the now)

he grunts / she grunts

(and they make holes in the house)

SHE BELIEVES THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO STILL FEEL THIS WAY
he’s going away to sing songs of the sea
she’s going to find out where he lives someday
HE’S TRYING TO FIND SOMEWHERE TO STAY

she now knows why she left him / now he knows why he never wants to see her again

ooh, ooh, ooh
Track Name: Shooken (Off)
Sometime earlier he had asked
"Ya ever flown in one of these before?"
I told him no, but that I wasn't afraid of heights...

Why do I suddenly feel like a lost soul?
I can see where I was tiptoeing across cliffs beyond bits
and underwhelming tundra
slid my feet under it

Plunging out into darkness
Hoping for something to hit home

Its not a whole other energy
amounting to anything

Please don't abandon my tangled string box

I wasn't encouraging order
But my insides are the basement of a hoarder
I can't straddle the border no more

I'm listening for the fine chimes
of an anteater's spine
which allows it to climb up Bavarian pines

THERE IS LONG LONG LIVING LEFT LEFT LEFT BEHIND

Shooken off chips off shoulders of a boneless body
Twilighted nearsighted light shone through

Light shone through

A dangerous precarious don't seem to scare you
Being rung around by a hundred pound elevation maker

I'm a running run and gun type a guy but
but I'd like to redefine that definition because
it takes a grounded root
to shoot a feature of phase

Why do I want to press my hands around these ears?
These garments telegraph touches of leftover follicles of skin left behind
in an innocent sweater

for real though I'd rather have my hand
rapping around ropes around my head
than be the man with no legs trying to stand

water is a platform
and the other elements play along too
out beyond paradigms

Track Name: Constellations (of Polluted Light)
"Never have a felt such a sense of longing
for the resevoir or the blanket sprawling
under light polluted constellations
why'd it take so long?"
-The Fatty Acids

Love developing difference
increasing singularity
singing her name, the one I adore

I look at her picture on my phone and say
what is indifferent from insane making sameness?
how can we claim this is anything different?

expand attract accordion
sustained baby grand

write our names on each other's hands in invisible crayon
the minds approach to what bodies want to withstand
fascinated by what we don't understand
propelling the demand of a commanding plot

we dare not call ourselves anything but lovers
befriending the evolutions of this color
we are trampolining revolutions in each other
in seesaw pendulums under parachute cover

so we can swing like rings
with centrifugal wings
absolution waxed
and wondering how passions are faceted
Track Name: Parking Rockstar (feat. Tsung and Eddie Villanueva)
wc:
what worth be this frisbee lift
if every nifty shift be stilled with stilted innocent gifts?
they brought me
a second autonomous correction
exoneration

(what's the deal with rockstar parking?)

watching a setting sun on sunset sitting outside
waiting to be confronted by
a superstar status in a stellar stratosphere

(can fragments be taken seriously?)

i wonder
as walkbys flutter by like butterflies
underestimating the power of
white walls in blacklisted grey areas
everything in decent duffel bagged arrangement
cascading in a descending order
a way of walking comfortably backwards
with arms clung
telling stories of mid-driftless tenderness
harmonies
spaces
found in foreign lands
easy accessibility to optimal oceanography
faced with certain dissection
every anything could be inched with intention
the sun is shining and nobody gives a damn
thinking about how my percept got to this point
and where i want to direct it to
depends...

i'm friendly with caterpillars
rap healers and cap peelers
even steven with commiters of treason
you don't even need a good reason
as long as you understand the meaning
i play for chances, rap for dancers
this jam could lead to the cure for cancer
i necromanced her, she slipped down the bannister
i planned for forever then i lived and learned
i never said never and ain't ain't a word
cuz it ain't in the dictionary
baby was a fiction fairy
had me playing pictionary
crystallize territory
miracle victory
ricochet through thick defenses
rendered senseless
timbered pretenses

ejv:
dotted lines with the freckles of a face
mark space in a place so you gave chase and how
in a land of oceans i mapped you
dropping a line to track you down
left foot right foot through the forest
as the chorus rocked you
yeah the chorus rocked you
yeah now baby it rocked you
it rocked you

chorus:

wc:
what's the deal with rockstar parking?

tsung:
i'm walking around town giving people high fives

wc:
ain't ain't a word cuz it ain't in the dictionary

ejv:
hahahahaha


tsung:
back at it
breaking bad habits
knocking'em down
round for round they lose their static
no rabbit in a hat trick
because we not dramatic
dynamic spherical rap wit
all i want to do today is smoke and write lyrics
yes i know you feel it
i can see it in your smile
space jammin
girl you know you're slammin
from continent to canyon
no need for any crayons
you picture perfect
lookin like the first day of work shift
so work it lady
you know you're worth it baby
crispy gravy
don't be shady
shine your light over this way
and walk with me
envision spirit of eternity
that's chemistry
the elemental mystery
hermetical alchemy
no mix could be more right for me
must be the tai chi
yeah that's very likely
that's why she like me
i focus my energy

Track Name: Jump Around Rhymescheme Remix (for 3rd Grade Exercise Dance)
Saddle up paddle in, by foot or by fin
I play the violin and I like to spin
I will make you crack up, slap happy sapped up
Fly and stay the whole night truth blow the fact up.

Set up, Man up, someone jumping jacks up
If you got the meaning you’ll be tramplining
Triathalon dunk fest, running while crunk
Customary giant pie at the finish line

Steal it, dunk it truncate kerplunk it
Get better times than a splunking monkey
Go nuts pops sure as bluff I stole socks
ran so fast got caught by the cops

I came to get found, lament of the crown
Jump rope on the roof and I don’t look down I jump around

Jump around
Jump around
Jump up and get down


Jump, jump, jump
Jump, jump, jump
Jump, jump, jump
Jump, jump, jump
Jump, jump, jump
Jump, jump

The curve of the lap is sharp envelope
middle of the pack but i’m moving up the rope
I felt the calm in the sweat of my palms
Saw more signs than receivers go long

learn how to play when I learn how to learn
being in shape is hard to earn
But I am a purist and you are not one
I play all day- 10k walk-runs

empirical elliptical no time to rest
I pull with my right arm push with my left
with a bike and a wheel, I like how I feel
choose how to live, don’t slip on a peel

I came to get found, lament of the crown
Jump rope on the roof and I don’t look down I jump around

Jump around
Jump around
Jump up and get down

JUMP JUMP JUMP
JUMP JUMP JUMP
JUMP JUMP JUMP
JUMP JUMP JUMP


INSTRUMENTAL 4 PROGRESSIONS

beef and the chops, I eat meat a lot
i lengthen my stride by the pace of my walk
exercise initiator
hemispheres, equators
I run around the world singing silly seeya later

Bottabing, run until my lungs itch
Go as the crow flies quick as a light switch
cup to cup sound hey whats up pound
put on my ear buds jump till my cheeks are red

Swings? you betcha. Jigs? You betcha.
Throwing from left field, pitcher to catcher’s mit


I came to get down, I came to get down
So get out your seats and jump around

Jump around, jump up and get down
Jump around, jump around
Jump up and get down
Jump up, jump up and get down

Jump, jump, jump
Jump, jump, jump
Jump, jump, jump
Track Name: My Why Yes Spot (On It)
my shoes know karate moves the way we do together things

spreading the seconds dispersing to corners to own up the space as if you were a liquid
touching each other like up and down zipper songs
waterslide down a rainbow only to stop on the hair of a period
blip of a blimp or a poem of people who all are full characters

i don't want to know the truth about clouds
i prefer to rest in the nest of a mission statement's stated sound
safe and sound

wishes have no place in wells
fishes can't survive in hell
the oldest dishes never sell
a gentle man never tells

maybe just out of place
maybe just stupid face
maybe just bubblegum covered in place
and i can't stand up
or i'm sitting in an innertube
floating through the goddamn blue sky

to find a spot where i can be lived
like i've already been died
it was something then it grew and that's the pump inside of my leg
its very hard to perform a signature on a blank so big
how many could go into the void of a bathroom on the crutch of an open door or

BALANCE A BALLOON ON YOUR FINGER BANANA IN YOUR POCKET

this should have been written on a landscape so
it really could be a part of something bigger

holding back the peanut butter running water down a stairwell
calmly waiting to make a decision
to swing on a rope and be free for a second
while suspended
i made like one thousand decisions while i was holding
back the peanut butter running water
down a stairwell
calmly waiting to make a decision
to swing on a rope
and be free for a second
while suspended...

elephants could learn to eat my right arm and
even in the drunk of my most endearing wishes
i would still like to sorry on behalf of my non-beauty sleeping
i wonder how many times i've been all i've ever said i was
or shots i've made
in one blown up whale?

while walking i broke the concrete with treetrunk legs
and harnessed a propellor of wishes not in a well but a sky
that is not a sky
but a new world where there is no land
there is no sky
but a new world where there is no land there is no sky

to find a spot where i can be lived like i've already been died
it was something then it grew and that's the pump
inside of my leg
Track Name: Prospectus (Espectacular)
i used to be the model of a modern major general
now i’m mo delicate peep my prospectus
i’m heavy as a nebula
born in forevertron
sometimes i disappear
come back like i was never gone
mine is the million color chameleon dream catcher coat
here,
you better wear it love
don’t want you to catch a cold
or better yet a death
baby i can see your breath
chattering chops and frozen sweat
and cry wet
the kiss cold the kids old
your face is bout to turn blue
chivalry lives when you’re shivering or need a lid lifted


this is no time for feminism
God is a misogynist

the vote is unanimous
your mommas not monogamous

walk it out leglessly
playing out your legacy
you’ll be known for centuries
outliving rain forest trees

breathe normally, secure your own mask first
exhaust draws light beams de-icing wings for bouyancy

megaspeed monologues of rusty metal bending
inspiring spiral jetties
to start fires on piles of tires
white man smoke is blacker than a back road night

breathe normally

prospectus spectacular
respect my vernacular
protect our vascular
from being drank by dracula
prospectus spectacular
grew up playing basketball
wanted to be a real rapper
but i'm just an out of work actor
driving a tractor

post primates crying into vinyl crates
eating fine cakes on blind dates
the mind takes terrific turning pictures
making us look mischievous
the frozen first impression is the mother of oppression

i’m wondering which bass level is full flower pedal
push a little head rush rattle into open blush battle
move shaken to bone break
watch what your tone takes
in wisconsin we snow shoe skate over frozen lakes

sometimes living life is like licking a knife
or riding a bike on a rope tight above boyle heights on a lonely night

when we can’t speak our minds talk
we do donuts in the parking lot

prospectus spectacular
respect my vernacular
protect our vascular
from being drank by dracula
prospectus spectacular
grew up playing basketball
wanted to be a real rapper
but i'm just an out of work actor
driving a tractor

i want to sing “fingernail moon” from a hot air balloon

you lost this one kid
don’t mean you have to like it
