Joe’s so mean To Josephine They’re in week 2 Of quarantine Now I’m seeing Cops on the scene This is the new State of being Streets are empty Stores are shut Except the grocer With the lineups Keep your distance Stand apart Our only chance Is to do our part Joe’s so mean To Josephine They’re in week 4 Of quarantine She tries to clean All that they touch But she finds it’s Just too much So many people Unemployed So many parties Unenjoyed So many meetings Now on screen So many homeless Go unseen Joe’s so mean To Josephine In Week 6 Of quarantine They’re getting lean From bad cuisine Ever shrinking The space between No end in sight No sweet relief This is the new way I believe No more crowds And no more groups It’s not allowed The curve must droop So I will wave From over here Wave my love To you my dear Can you believe It’s come to this Pucker up I’ll blow a kiss

Quiet Place 03:36
In a quiet place all by myself Just me and my thoughts Cup of coffee book from the shelf It is not for nought Here I find my peace of mind Here the centre holds Only way I can unwind And soothe my troubled soul Silence the bells and lock the door Peace and quiet I want more I try not to buy what they sell In a quiet place all by myself In a quiet place just me alone With my thoughts of us For my sins I do atone And wait here for justice I know sometimes that I do wrong For I am only human Try as I may to get along Still am I consuming I am not taking any calls As daylight fades and nighttime falls You must take care of yourself I’m in a quiet place all by myself In my solitude you haunt me Dark memories of things I’ve done In my solitude you taunt me Reminiscing the tales I spun I sit here alone Ignoring the phone Waiting for daylight to rise Until the time I’ve forgiven my crimes And can look you in the eyes In a quiet place all by myself Just me and my thoughts Cup of coffee book from the shelf It is not for nought Here I find my peace of mind Here the centre holds Only way I can unwind And soothe my troubled soul

Sleep 03:32 video
Sleep Sleep my dear Just slip away Don’t worry about What happened today Sleep my dear Sleep away your sorrows Sleep my dear Until tomorrow Turn out the lights Lay your head down Get under the covers Don’t make a sound Close your eyes Breath out and breathe in Pull up the covers Let the dream begin Sleep my dear Sleep away your sorrows Sleep my dear Until tomorrow Sleep my dear Just slip away Don’t worry about What happened today As day turns to night As night turns to day Just in the middle We will go away Off to a place Pure imagination You can do anything You choose the station And when at last You open your eyes Visions retreat as The new day you spy Nothing but daylight Over the horizon You can do anything This I’m advising Sleep my dear You’ll just die a little And be reborn So much less brittle Sleep my dear And dream of me In your dreams I want to be

First Wave 03:24
First Wave It’s getting out of hand Sweeping over the land Nobody understands it And freedom they demand it Not all will be saved From the first wave Even though we’re trying So many will be dying To the unbelieving What are you all achieving Already there is thieving From my window I am seeing Are you having trouble breathing Is it the anger that is seething You think that you are freeing us By refusing to believe in us Not all will be saved Or make it past the first wave The freedom that we crave Is a thing of past days Now we’re quarantining Do you just not see the meaning There is a plague upon us Some of us are goners Sacrifice of liberty No more sweet intimacy Want a hug best find a tree Stay six feet away from me All over this our country This is the way it has to be We cannot all be virus free Will this bring immunity Oh how some just fall apart Without their sweet convenience Authority will do its part And it will not be lenient Stay at home let no one in And always keep your distance The thing from which we are running Will wipe out all resistance Now we now what matters most And what’s a luxury From sea to sea from coast to coast It’s a discovery So much of what we always did In your life and in mine Is now that which we forbid Just a big waste of time

Focus 04:06
Focus Focus on who you can give to Not who you can take from Focus to live through the fog Don’t let the tail wag the dog Focus on helping others And save yourself Focus my sisters and brothers Don’t fall for the spells There’s always a portion Of lens distortion When you are trying to see What gets in between us Can lead to the meanest Problems between you and me Let’s clear the air And lets really stare Into each other’s heart and soul Between you and me There is alchemy Let’s turn that lead into gold Focus on here Focus on now Focus on letting The moment allow Focus on this Don’t be distracted What you focus on Is what you’re attracting Focus with love Stay in the light Even when in The darkest of night Before the dawn Be guided by stars The universe Will do you no wrong Can you get it sorted Is it too much for ya Where is the border Between chaos and order Thoughts that transport her To mental disorder Rarely reward her And don’t respect borders Til someone reports her To authorities sort of She prays to the Lord her But praying it bores her

Brotherhood 03:51
Brotherhood brotherhood When it’s good it’s really good You got my back I got you dude Brotherhood brotherhood Brotherhood brotherhood From the same neighbourhood Up for you I always stood Brotherhood brotherhood Your mom is my mom and my mom is yours I’ll stand by you forever like I stood for you before You know you ca n always come a knockin’ on my door Because I am your brother that’s an oath that I did swore If you ever need me I will be there on the double Anything that you get into is my kind of trouble Whether we’re blowing spliffs or whether we’re blowing bubbles In the end all that will stand is brothers in the rubble Brotherhood brotherhood From the same neighbourhood Up for you I always stood Brotherhood brotherhood Brotherhood brotherhood When it’s good it’s really good You got my back I got you dude Brotherhood brotherhood You’ll be my first pick any time I put together a team When I say my family it is you that I mean You changed my DNA man yes you modified my genes With you and me we are so close there’s nothing in between If I ran for president you would be on my ballot If you had to tenderize I would give you a mallet If your horsie ran away I would help you corral it You are my favourite colour in the universe’s pallet Wonder Twin Powers!

Dear Samantha Dear Samantha Samantha dear So for away Wish you were here Dear Samantha Sweetest girl For you I’d travel Around the world We barely have two cents to rub between us Life is a bitch it can be the meanest If only the doubters could have seen us I stand by you when times are leanest I stand by you in sun and rain Only you can ease my pain Only you can do me right In the darkness of the night Dear Samantha It’s you I’m missing Your lips the ones I wish I’s kissing Dear Samantha Come with me Let me be your New family Each of us has lost our father That is why we need each other You I’m choosing as a lover But I’ll protect you just like a brother Come here girl be safe with me Come here Sam and set us free Hop on a plane to my city Come to me let us be we Though we come from different generations Of all the people in the population You’re the one for me is what I’m saying To be with you oh how I’m praying Right beside me you’ll be laying Far from me you’re never straying No matter the cost I will be paying Together a great game we’re playing Dear Samantha Samantha dear So for away Wish you were here Dear Samantha Sweetest girl For you I’d travel Around the world Dear Samantha It’s you I’m missing Your lips the ones I wish I’s kissing Dear Samantha Come with me Let me be your New family

Behind my Back Standing right in front of me Every little thing I see Is so sweet You’re so sweet Knock me right of my feet You look me right in the eyes And tell me lies Tell me lies You don’t think I realize You’re a killer in disguise But the moment I turn my back Out comes the knife Here comes the attack What’s going on behind my back Give me the vision that I lack My eyes can’t see but my ears hear All those very things I fear I know you’ve got some bad intentions That you never dare to mention When you’re looking in my eyes I guess it comes as no surprise Everybody has two sides What’s on the outside and inside Won’t you take me for a ride I don't mind to let it slide Together you can hold my heart But the minute we’re apart My back’s a target for your darts I should have known it from the start Yes the moment I look away I set you up to make this My last day I know you’ve got some bad intentions That you never dare to mention When you’re looking in my eyes I guess it comes as no surprise What’s going on behind my back Give me the vision that I lack My eyes can’t see but my ears hear All those very things I fear Please, please Stay in front of me I got to keep my eye on you Only way you will be true I don’t want to walk alone Worrying all about that stone You keep hidden in your hand I am not a very brave man I would rather know the lie The facade that you try To keep making me believe But I know just what’s up your sleeve Lie to me, lie to yourself We are both going to hell Hand in hand and arm in arm You will kill me with your charm Together in this devil’s pact One day I’ll catch you in the act But I’ll forgive you don’t you see You just mean too damn much to me

Mama Goodbye 04:19
Mama I’m not ready to say goodbye Mama All I can do is sit and cry Mama Tell me why tell me why tell me why Mama I’m not ready to say goodbye You are my creator, you are the source You give me life you give me the force You gave me this body you gave me this heart You loved me even right before the start You are my protector, you are my shield Together we walk through the forest and field Carry me wherever you go in your arms You’re my four leaf clover you’re my lucky charm Mama Tell me why tell me why tell me why Mama I’m not ready to say goodbye Mama I’m not ready to say goodbye Mama All I can do is sit and cry Now I sit by your side and I hold your hand Look into your eyes but this part I can’t stand Hour by hour and day after day I see you slowly just slipping away I don’t want you to leave I can’t be alone Without our house just isn’t a home Please do not slip off to forever night Because in this darkness you are my light So sad this tale How your body failed I sit and I wail As you end your tale I know it’s too soon You’re my sun and my moon The stars in my skies One last look in your eyes I cry oh I cry Wish I could deny I pray for your life I can’t say goodbye
