The boss said you’re fired I said that’s good I’m tired For too long I’ve been mired For this shit I am not wired So I climbed up to the spire Climbed high and then climbed higher Say what you want about I But I swear I ain’t a liar This life I will attack Now that you’re not on my back I’m on a better track And nothing do I lack Vaxxed, waxed, and sacked Now nothing do I lack Now I got some some slack And I’m never coming back I screamed that I am free It’s all I want to be The best thing you did for me It’s so obvious I see Thank you for letting go It’s the best thing now I know Boss you’re my hero So I guess it’s time to go Vaxxed, waxed, and sacked Now nothing do I lack Now I got some some slack And I’m never coming back This life I will attack Now that you’re not on my back I’m on a better track And nothing do I lack Don’t you even bother with the two week’s notice I’m as happy as the fattest buddha sitting in a lotus I might as well in a landslide have been elected POTUS But as it is I am the leader of Osmosis Don’t mean to be getting all braggadocios But I plan on having some serious symbiosis With my free time it ain’t no crime it ain’t psychosis Here’s a balm for my friend Dom: fuck multiple sclerosis!

If you always waiting for the right time Life is gonna pass you by Every day and every night time That’s when the time is right The past is gone and the future what Do it now or do it not
The time is now if you allow The present is the best we got Opportunity is in the moment Don’t leave kind words left unspoken Raise your voice and say the words You know we need them to be heard Fill their ears with all your kindness Don’t be so feeble minded Every say we all are grinding Words can be oh so spellbinding In the end we regret the chances We didn’t take, those lost romances Nothing ventured nothing gained Let not the bonds of love be strained I’m telling you the moment’s here Oh how I love you I love you dear When you are far I want you near I need you in my atmosphere Time is an arrow It flies straight ahead On the straight and narrow We must respect it There’s no turning back No turning around But it’s you that I lack What was lost can be found

You’re welcome You’re welcome, welcome I say you’re welcome You’re welcome to take it all You’re welcome, you’re welcome Until the day Hell come And all the towers fall Hold open that door and pick up that litter And the world will thank you In so many ways, You know it really pays You can take that right to the bank you You’re welcome, you’re welcome Are you trying to sell some Body what they don’t need You’re welcome, you’re welcome I’m going to tell some Thoughts I have had smoking weed Say please when you need A drink or a feed But don’t ask for that in excess Be happy with your share And then if there Is some left over, success Be kind to the meanest they needest the most Be good in the world before you’re a ghost Start every day with some butter and toast When your famous your friends will throw you a roast Teach your children well or I’ll knock you to hell With nothing more than a glance It would be swell and just ring my bell Because they are our only chance

Compose You a Rose Sharpen my pencil Fill me with ink Cut out a stencil Man that paint stinks Soak all my brushes In turpentine In between rushes Will you be mine Let me compose Compose you a rose With words for petals As you test my mettle Let me conspire By the light of the fire You set me alight For you let me write My typewriter ribbon's All over the floor Can you get some more At the Dollar Store Got so much to say And so much to write I know it don't pay That's why I'm contrite Let me conspire By the light of the fire You set me alight For you let me write Let me compose Compose you a rose With words for petals As you test my mettle I do it just to leave Some wisdom behind Just all the treasures I have in my mind They may be worth nothing Or they may be gold But I must keep writing As I grow old Burning my candles Down to wax pools I hope you can handle What I write to you. Let me compose Compose you a rose With words for petals As you test my mettle Let me conspire By the light of the fire You set me alight For you let me write

Morning time, Time to rise. Got the sunshine In my eyes. Cup of coffee, Sherbrooke street: Feelin' like it's time to eat, oh Don't you worry 'bout me - It's all good in NDG Allons y vers chez Tony Petit déjeuner, Avec mes amis Tout le monde Ils sont ici Mes alliès Et mes ennemis Oh comme je l'apprecie Ça va bien a NDG Meme dans le pandémie Ça va bien a NDG Howard says he's still alive, Vivian is looking fine, Angie's on the grill today, Bella says coffee's on the way. This will be my seventh one And the day has just begun, oh Don't you worry 'bout me - It's all good in NDG Don't you worry 'bout me - It's all good in NDG Allons-y, une promenade Sherbrooke ouest ou c’est malade Içi monsieur Regan cher Il regarde ma derrière En tout cas il est charmant Avec moi il fait la danse On passe chez lui pour relaxer Et regarder A Vous de Jouer Oh comme je l'apprécie Ça va bien a NDG C’est comme ça c’est comme çi Ça va bien a NDG Then we work, or something like it. Talk to people, circles widen. Sun is setting but still light out Must get back to, back to the hideout. Et quand l'endroit est scellé... Coffre-fort sous serrure et clé.... C'est là que nous nous assemblons... En toute sécurité. The Sound (le son) begins (commence) within (dedans) Inside (l’intérieur) the mind (‘esprit) the heart (la coeur) the soul (dans l’âme) And out it comes in an explosion (Sa sort dans une explosion) Emotion, (émotion) the inner, (trésor) the outer, (l’exterieur) and yes (et oui) It's nothing less than pure...
(ce n'est rien de moins que pur.…) Osmosis! Morning time Time to rise Got the sunshine in my eyes, oh Don't you worry 'bout me - It's all good in NDG!

To Beijing and Back Zoom,zoom, zoom You’re so far from my room Flying high, high, high Soaring high in the sky Going far, far, far What a traveler you are You’re my snack, snack, snack Love you to Beijing and back For the next 5 months you will be gone How can I stand that this is going on Every time I face these few months with fears I remember to meet you took 46 years But now that I have and now that’s you left My heart is not broken it is not bereft I know that I love you and you love me true I know that in no time I’ll again be with you Zoom,zoom, zoom You’re so far from my room Flying high, high, high Soaring high in the sky Going far, far, far Oh what a traveler you are You’re my snack, snack, snack Love you to Beijing and back Humbert will be wonder where are my treats From the prettiest lady who watches me eat Who drinks the warm milk with a splash of coffee The one that I always come running to see It’s not for me that my worries are at I am more concerned with the heart of the cat For you he has known for most of his life I am pretty sure that he thinks you’re my wife When you return we must kiss for an hour Hug for a day and hold hands for a week Feed one million squirrels with you my dear girl We have got all of the nuts that they seek If I could sleep right through to November I would do it without any doubt You’re my heart, work of art Without you I can’t do without Zoom,zoom, zoom You’re so far from my room Flying high, high, high Soaring high in the sky Going far, far, far Oh what a traveler you are You’re my snack, snack, snack Love you to Beijing and back

Hourglass 04:52
It’s time to flip the hourglass The sand has all flowed down It’s time to graduate this class It’s time to burn this town We have now reached critical mass We can’t turn back around It’s time to flip the hourglass The sand has all flowed down Footprints in the sand don’t last Break the mould the die is cast We’re going much faster than fast Our flags are flying at half mast I pray to Ra, I pray to Bast No sorries to the ones I sassed You are just smoke in the past Footprints in the sand don’t last Enemies who once were lovers Until their true hearts discovered Always working undercover Until she shoves him and he shoves her Overhead the sentries hover While below we run for cover One government just like all others Enemies who once were lovers Bury our heads in the sand While the tyrants rape the land We want to think we understand Why everything tastes so bland Are we fatigued by this command So tired that we cannot stand Ain’t it lovely, ain’t it grand Bury our heads in the sand Gather round For the countdown Send in the clowns Count it down now 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 Goodbye
