COMMON APPRECIATION (lyrics)

Under the
break I see a
smiling situation
a common appreciation
thousand years

When I am weak, you are strong
when I am cold, you are warm

when I can’t speak,
you sing my song
and when I can't walk,
you carry me along.

cause I am you, and two are we
and we are one, and we are free
Wherever I go, I know that you
will be there holding down a fire so true

[chorus]

When the Sudden rush,
slows down -

Don't you keep your frown
cause anytime you're feelin' down , you know that I will come around.
And when the lust
call sounds
Well, we can get on down -
cause you’re the queen that wears my crown -
now shout it loud across the town.

[Beatbox Breakdown]
[chorus]

And all the way to passion-free
so we can become decency.
And all will wave - remembering you.

a fire so true,
and me the sea.
And all that we have grown 2 be

now old, but new, to legacy.

And I would do it all again
with you,
My One -You’re my best friend.

Too

what you feel for me
when I have fell for you
know that you have fell at one time
too.

And I want you.

Want you.

To know that I

want

you.

And I know I like you
And I know you like me
too.
Too.

So why don’t you know
what it means to

show me that you feel this something
too.

Now why

show me that you feel the same way
too.

On My Way Up

Written By: Adam Mundok

ON MY WAY UP – AM, 09/25/2003 (first recorded 03/28/05 easter Sunday)

Oops – I’m on my way up
I’m not gonna come down again
Yes - I’ve got the feeling
I’m not gonna come down at all

Cause when I’m up (la, la, la...)
– I’m high
And when I’m happy (la, la, la...)
– I’m So High.

Yes – I’m on my way up
I’m not gonna come down today.
Yes – I’ve got that feeling
I’m not gonna come down at all.

No I won’t come down
So please don’t bring me down
No I won’t come down
So please don’t bring me down
[repeat total 2x]

Yes – I’m on my way up
I’m not gonna come down again
Yes - I’ve got the feeling
I’m not gonna come down at all.

Lifeboad (Karmic Divine)

Written By: Adam Mundok

KARMIC DIVINE –A.M, 01-10-05

Lifeboat carry me away
Take me somewhere that I know I’ll want to stay
Don’t care what the weather may say
Everyday’s another sunny day

“There is a tide in the affairs of men,
which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and miseries.
On such a full sea are we now afloat,
And we must take the current when it serves
or lose our ventures in life”
Don’t believe me? Ask Julius C.
Act 4, Scene 3.

[chorus]

“What win I, if I gain the thing I seek?
A dream, a breath, a froth of fleeting joy.
Who buys a minute’s mirth to wail a week?
Or seeks eternity to get a toy?
For one sweet grape, who will the vine destroy?”
The Rape of Lucrece, 211 to 215.

[chorus]

The wind blows one way today, another tomorrow.
For each moment of joy, there is a moment of sorrow.
Every day that the rain comes pouring down,
makes way for the sun to feed the fertile ground.
And so it goes, on and on, in the karmic divine –
All things in life are truly intertwined.
bridge:
And so I say ...

[chorus]

Dragon Slayer

Written By: Adam Mundok

DRAGON SLAYER - AM, Feb.2008

Intro: And I was walking, and I was walking , and I was walking (repeat 3X)

And finally I came upon a huge doorway on my right
Carved out of the mountain itself
The door was open just enough for me to slip through and get inside
There, I beheld riches unimaginable – golden objects piled higher than the hills
But guarding this treasure was a huge, fire breathing worm – who was sleeping at the time
so I slipped on my ring so I could take a closer look – and then I saw her - and she became the treasure of my desire.

Verse(s): Ah, Such a lovely thing -
I would forsake all these treasures - All I want is you,
DISCOVERY And I will brave the dragon’s fire to have you.
So, bring it on dragon. Show me what you got.
For I have found my Muse.
And it is no use – you can not stop me.
Nothing can stop me from getting my girl.

REALIZATION Only she can make me feel alright.
She make the whole quest all worth it – if I could just stare into her eyes.
Just one night into her eyes.

BATTLE
But then that Dragon he thrusts
Oh, that Dragon he bite – And I leap back, And I step to the right
And I see that patch – and I stab it through
For the glory of you – Oh, for the glory of you,
What a man would do, just to have you.

Such a fair maiden – so beautiful. I can’t even believe it.
I would do anything. I would jump the moon.
I would slay the biggest beast, the Red Dragon, for you.

All for you.
Make everything alright, when I come home to you
But there’s always another dragon to fight. that’s gonna challenge my right to have such a fair maiden by my side.

But I won’t back down, Baby....So don’t you worry, don’t you fear.
I’ll be your knight in shining armor, year after year.
And I will take them down - All for you. All for you, Baby.
I don’t even want the gold anymore ...
- unless you want the gold, then I’ll take a little bit.

I said Dragon, I will spare your life if you just give me the fair maiden. to be my wife.
Yeah, you can even keep your gold. Every last shilling.
And the dragon looked at me and he huffed and puffed, and he said,
“looky here, little pig of a man –
I’m gonna fry you up,
I’m gonna make bacon out of your hide.

And I said, let me tell you, you will do no such thing.
And we started to rumble. Rumble, young man, rumble.
He didn’t know what I had for him ( whoo, whoo)
I had that girl in my eye, and there ain’t nothing gonna stop me. No way no how.

VICTORY
And when the beast fell, and was laying at my feet –
you looked at me so sweet, and I took the shackles off you.. And I said, that beast, he’s not gonna rule you no more.

CONCLUSION
Would you be my girl? And you said, “sure.”
And life is so sweet, life is beautiful when I have you by my side.

But we can’t sleep too long, cause at the dawn another beast will raise up and come after you. Challenge me too.. But I’m never going to lose you No way. I will fight any fight. Bring it on.
Cause I’m your knight. I’m your dragon slayer. I’m your dragon slayer.

And we started walking ... And walking ... And walking. The End.
