Butter 02:47 video
Butter Butter’s on sale $3.99 or 3 for ten This week only Don’t know when again This time it is Metro But check Provigo too They are in competition And they’re coming after you Sing about gratitude And nobody listens It don’t get past the censors But it is what we’re missing Why should we be dancing When there are things to bake Oh my dearest Barbara You really take the cake This time it is Metro But check Provigo too They are in competition And they’re coming after you Butter’s on sale $3.99 or 3 for ten This week only Don’t know when again I can’t get on the radio I can’t get on that page Can’t promote the music In this brand new age We are all just actors On the digital stage But all my lines got cut And they took me off the page Silence the creators Don’t want to be them hearing There’s only room for pumpkin pies And complaints about snow clearing Tag your local councillor About that damn bike path Soon we will all be so boring Just gotta do the math

I'm a Pimp 03:48
I’m a Pimp I’m a pimp It’s that simple I’m a pimp It’s a fact I’m a pimp Show me those dimples I’m a pimp I’m on track Volunteer pimp ain’t nothing shady I don’t make a dollar off my ladies You look down upon her job but you know I say she Is out there working hard and she’s getting paid she Anything she needs she can come to see me But I don’t expect to be getting freebies Anytime she gets the heebie-jeebies Right away she’s always on the phone to me I’m a pimp Show me those dimples I’m a pimp I’m on track I’m a pimp It’s that simple I’m a pimp It’s a fact Driving on the highway under the speed limit While she’s on the phone collecting the deposit She got all of the greatest things from her closet Always on the clock no she never pause it Waiting in the parking lot around the corner Never do I rush her, never do I warn her I smoke it in the van because here it’s warmer I don’t notice the time because I adore her It’s a home run, it’s a slam dunk I’m so cute they call me Pimpmunk I go deeper than Titanic sunk Maybe always high but never drunk Play ska with punk do you get skunk In the house she slank and out she slunk Put all the joy toys in the trunk Driving home we sing and turn up the funk I’m a pimp It’s that simple I’m a pimp It’s a fact I’m a pimp Show me those dimples I’m a pimp I’m on track

Crazy Glue 04:05
True my dream will you it make All of you I dream to take When you are far my heart does ache There's only everything at stake I long to feel your lips on mine Run your fingers down my spine Lie beside me all the time Get me dreaming up my rhymes Will we together see it through I'll never take my eyes off you Oh how I dream of you it's true Oh will you make my dream come true With these words I sing to you Know, my love, my love is true With all we say and all we do This bond between us: crazy glue Over oceans won't you glide To appear right by my side Oh how I want to be inside That part of you you always hide You are a perfect work of art From your skin down to your heart I've loved you from the very start Nothing can tear us apart This bond between us: crazy glue With all we say and all we do Know, my love, my love is true With these words I sing to you Oh will you make my dream come true Oh how I dream of you it's true I'll never take my eyes off you Will we together see it through Get me dreaming up my rhymes Lie beside me all the time Run your fingers down my spine I long to feel your lips on mine There's only everything at stake When you are far my heart does ache True my dream will you it make All of you I dream to take

Woke up afraid from the dream I had Woke up scared and trembling My hands are shaking I feel so bad My life it was resembling But everything had gone wrong Everything was twisted Darkness vision oh so strong And I fought it unassisted Caffeine dreams On Friday the thirteenth Nothing is what it seems In these caffeine dreams Caffeine dreams Dopamine schemes Your serotonin leaves And oxytocin flees No more coffee thanks a lot I dare not take a sip My troubles brew right in that pot It will not touch my lips I need some other soul elixir Something to counteract This feeling I have so much sicker That it is a fact All alone Among the clones As I atone To the skull and crossbones The beatings continue Until morale improves Thoughts that are in you Will yourself undo They came for me, My enemies Most of them myself I was surrounded, And confounded Trapped there on the shelf I tried to fight, And reach the light And when I finally woke I was still haunted By thoughts unwanted My mind playing a joke Caffeine dreams Those vivid scenes Like nothing shown On any screens You can only find It in your mind And every time It’s psychic crime Caffeine dreams How can you stop them Caffeine dreams I want to drop them Must I pray Before I sleep That my peace My mind will keep

AGE OF SLAVES Masters we crave So all we gave It’s the last wave The age of slaves All the rant and raving Won’t stop the cave-in Don’t misbehave This is the age of slaves Life is just a game all about the numbers You know we got more but we’re also dumber Nothing can wake us from our slumber So few awake while the rest are under A spell so diabolical we can’t escape it Even though we are the very ones who shape it Worshipping idols we ourselves created Those whose appetites cannot be sated This is the age of slaves Don’t misbehave All the rant and raving Won’t stop the cave-in The age of slaves It’s the last wave So all we gave Masters we crave You give up all your days just to make a wage That’s nothing more than numbers written on a page They say you’re getting paid but it’s the lie of this age Give your all for nothing and show no outrage But you need a roof you need food to eat Clothes on your back and shoes on your feet They sell you on the freedom but you buy deceit And now we even pay for the air we breathe What does it mean To be free Is it even A possibility Free to live Free to love Free from God And Heaven above Free every second Of every day Free I reckon To never pay

Kind of a Sign Gimme gimme gimme Some kind of a sign It’s way past time By now it’s a crime It’s a fine line Between clean and grime Gimme gimme gimme Some kind of a sign It’s some kind of a sign it You can’t define it You cannot time it Only unwind it I got the timing Can’t beat my rhyming Always striving For positive vibing It’s a fine line Between clean and grime Gimme gimme gimme Some kind of a sign Gimme gimme gimme Some kind of a sign It’s way past time By now it’s a crime Don’t be mistaken We are forsaken Some are waking But soon they’re baking Vision obstruction Mass destruction At this junction Nothing functions Light in the sky A burning bush I need a sign Give me a push Give our tablets Their new commandments Please deliver Some understanding While the screens They are distracting My eyes do see Beyond the acting I see it all With my own eye I hope I wake Before I die

Octopus 04:11 video
Octopus On our own we are but one Man and woman easily undone Two arms two legs on each of us But together: octopus Together do we rule the sea Me with you and you with me Let us come together strong Octopus is never wrong United we can now withstand The pressures of the deep Hand and hand and hand and had All is within our reach With our four legs we go twice as far As any one sad human Among the squid and men o’ war Our appetites consuming Together do we rule the sea Me with you and you with me Let us come together strong Octopus is never wrong On our own we are but one Man and woman easily undone Two arms two legs on each of us But together: octopus Come with me my lover mine Into the depths we’ll sink Life underneath the waves is fine We will be tickled pink As far as we get from the skies At the bottom of the drink Our predators we’ll leave behind And leave them just our ink Oceans wide and oceans free I’m part of you, you’re part of me In us there is such unity The rulers of the deep are we But we must swim so carefully For there are those that hunt the seas Because my dear in some countries We are quite the delicacy

The time has come for us to live together The time has come for us to live as one The time has come for us to love one another The time has come oh Lord the time has come Freedom is the promise Unity is the way Will you stand beside Through the night and day Let nothing divide us Let the spoils be shared Let us feed the hungry Let us show we care The time has come for us to love one another The time has come oh Lord the time has come The time has come for us to live together The time has come for us to live as one In these times of divide and conquer Got us fighting over dirt Turning man against his brother So much needless pain and hurt Can we try to remember What truly matters most Can we come together Sea to sea and coast to coast The time has come for us to live together The time has come for us to live as one The time has come for us to love one another The time has come oh Lord the time has come Listen to your heart The beat will do you right Listen to your heart Together we’ll be alright

How Are You 04:27
How Are You How are you how are you Is there something I can do You know I love you true How are you how are you How are you how are you Won’t you tell me what’s new I’m here thinking things through How are you how are you It’s been a hot minute since last time we spoke Tell me your story or tell me a joke If it were 2010 I would you Facebook poke Won’t you come over, join me for a smoke How are you how are you Tell me all the news It’s you that I choose How are you how are you How are you how are you You are the one who’s Up my avenue How are you how are you Some funny thing made me of you reminded Maybe it was that postcard that you signed it It’s on my fridge now a constant reminder To me that I must always try to find ya Sorry that it’s been so long You know how life gets busy It ain’t right it’s surely wrong But sometimes I get dizzy I promise next time will be sooner I promise I’ll be better Oh me I’m just a silly crooner I hope you get this letter

UP WITH KINDNESS, MAN Down with business Up with kindness Anything else Is truly blindness Down with business man Just go to hell Up with kindness man I tell you him swell To hell with profit For stealing the word From prophets foretelling The end of the world We did not listen We did not hear The end is near It’s true I fear This multi level Marketing scheme We call life It’s not a dream It’s a nightmare That you can see Oh I am so scared Of what we be Down with business man Just go to hell Up with kindness man I tell you him swell Down with business Up with kindness Anything else Is truly blindness To hell with money And credit too It’s up to me And up to you To stop accounting Lust for gold Don’t wanna die counting Before I grow old Say we love freedom But what is free It won’t even be The air we breathe If we keep going In this direction It’s really killing My erection You need help I’m here for you No strings attached It’s what I do Never look In another’s bowl Unless to make sure It is full There is enough To go around Listen closely Hear the sound It’s saying stop It’s saying give It’s our only Chance to live
