The Beginning

Written By: Edgar Gonzalez Jr.

alright, i know where i'm heading
and i hope you will join me
on a journey around the corner

we have our whole lives ahead of us
twist and turn into a new beginning
we can flip the tape again

our music molds us for whats to come
i hope you make the right decision
the right way to go? i don't know
just let the feeling overtake you

baby, oh baby
my body has been feeling all
psychosis afflicted, tuned into the channels of your mind.
i'm grateful that you've stayed so long
when the door has since been unlocked

our music molds us for whats to come
i hope you make the right decision
whats the right way to go? i don't know
just let the feeling overtake you

feel the tingle in your bones
feel the pulsing vibration
on and on

our music molds us for whats to come
i hope you make the right decision
the right way to go? i don't know
just let the feeling overtake you
just let the feeling overtake you
just let the feeling overtake you

Rise

Written By: Edgar Gonzalez Jr.

what do you when everyone knows what you don't want them to know?
what do you do when everyone goes where you don't want them to go?
what do you do when everyone else gets too close?
what do you do when everyone else takes control?

where do you go?
just let it go.

can you stop and reel in your mind and bring it back to real time?
can you stop and realize that there's nothing else here to find?
can you stop? just fall through the clouds and get ready to unwind.
can you stop? don't follow the whispers - you are in your prime.

you gotta push it out now
explode then bring it back now
'cause this is really real now and you've got me out of my mind
and i won't go back i won't go back until i climb.

where do you go?
just let it go.

this will be just fine.
no longer on the decline.
i'll prove that i'm devine.
and i will make this mine mine mine.

everything has led me up to this
and now i am in a decline
everything has been rearranged
every moment placed before mine
and this is the peak...

i am married like my sister
i am settled like my father
i give birth to you over and over again
this is just the way things are now
unconscious shallow needs
to consume and drink
and sleep.

neon colors sprawled upon us
shimmer shimmer in the black light
every time i touch you orange tones seep right through the pores
just in case the filament inside this lightbulb were to burst
i just wanted to let you know that i loved you i loved you first.

i know what everyone will say
connecting it connects a million ways
it fell apart so quickly it will never be the same.
i'm drenched and i will never be the same.

neon colors sprawled upon us
shimmer shimmer in the black light
every time i touch you orange tones seep right through the pores
just in case the filament inside this lightbulb were to burst
i just wanted to let you know that i loved you i loved you first.

break me out of this i need diversions and explosions
i need television, music, and a drive.
orange lights and street lights lead me to an endpoint.
i am sure i need these colors to survive.

neon colors sprawled upon us
shimmer shimmer in the black light
every time i touch you orange tones seep right through the pores
just in case the filament inside this lightbulb were to burst
i just wanted to let you know that i loved you i loved you first.

Baby how did it feel to have that knife in your hands
Baby how did it feel when you struck it down
Into your life
Into your everything
Into the one you’ve always loved
and always loved you until now

But no matter what you tell yourself
He was never yours

How could you watch him tasting her
and playing with her hair
Through the window horrified and helplessly you stare
Every time you close your eyes
You’ll see this wicked scene
But she will never see again
faceless and obscene

But no matter what you tell yourself
He was never yours

This is all your fault
You are all you think of
as he’s ripping her apart

I Have Disposable Ideas

Written By: Edgar Gonzalez Jr. & Winter Bayuk

Am I disposable?
A relic from your past?
Am I replaced so easily that I don’t know until it’s done?

Something no one cares for anymore
Someone sleeping in the moonlit snow
Freezing to the point of burning
Something no one cares for anymore

Forgotten and discarded
Remembering love like yesterday’s bad news
Because tomorrow has come…

Something no one cares for anymore
Someone sleeping in the moonlit snow
Freezing to the point of burning
Something no one cares for anymore

Disposable!
Am I disposable?
Am I disposable?!
Am I

Disposable?

Pour Your Heart Out

Written By: Edgar Gonzalez Jr.

We conversed through the night about the new selves that we discovered
But there is a pit feeling inside that I’m losing you like all the others
Picture me unchanged and I would’ve jumped that bridge in a heartbeat
I know you care but you’re so far away - you are so far away - you are so far away.

And this hurts more than ever
The words you have strung together
Have made my 12 ounce heart even heavier heavier heavier heavier

Pour your heart out
We’ll get lost - there is a cure that way - when you go
I will find you
And you’ll know - you will know
That I love you, I love you too.

I said I’d be there sooner than you know
But I didn’t take into account that I’d be dirt poor
Now I’ve got no where to go ‘cause I’ve got no way to go - no way to go

And this hurts more than ever
The distance between one another
Has made my 12 ounce heart even heavier heavier heavier heavier

Pour your heart out
We’ll get lost - there is a cure that way - when you go
I will find you
And you’ll know - you will know
That I love you, I love you too.

(Come on Come on)

I've Got You

Written By: Edgar Gonzalez Jr. & Gerald Douglas

On the frontline the time is mine
Feel our fingers intertwine - star crossed love align
Sensation so devine - it just shimmers through my spine like this bassline all the time
Giving me a sign when the moon goes down
No flaws in the design as we walk downtown
Make me freeze my attention you seize - just get a little closer and don’t leave me please

Your love has infected me
It helps mend me daily
It might make my singing pitchy but that’s okay
Because I’ve got you

(Rap)
Ok days were whatever
Nights were the same
Until a light flashed in my life you had came
Stress disappeared strife and the pain
Now it's all smiles that I can't contain
It's me and it's you we do what we do
Baby we go together like crackers and soup
Donkey Fiona shrek puss in boots
Marge homer Gerald and the truth
I'm saying it's crazy that I've got you
it got to be a blessing that I've found you
I must have been infected cuz I feel you
I used to rap about you and I still do
say it twice I do I've got you I've got you
Youve got me say yeah player 
Walking in the air clear
Chair sittin on the atmosphere 

Your love has infected me
It helps mend me daily
It might make my singing pitchy but that’s okay
Because I’ve got you

Music is love in search of a word
and love is a many splendored thing

Your love has infected me
A cure for all that I see
It might make me sing off key but that’s okay
Because I’ve got you

Beep! Beep!

Written By: Edgar Gonzalez Jr.

Your honor,
I would like to take a moment
to state my little case.
It’s just a minor issue
but I can’t go on or taste
until I’ve been repaired,
my parts glued back in place,
and my heart’s been jump started
so I don’t have to face
the judgement call.

Lanes transform in time,
growing into home.
For now, I’m blinded by a
flickering -
eyelids as heavy as stone.

And, oh God, dear jury
as we all know
my limbs were unable to slow.

Read my mind’s thoughts in time.
They want it but it will always be mine.
In an hour, I will be gone -
Vitality withdrawn

Alice

Written By: Edgar Gonzalez Jr.

She’s been toying with the idea of telling you telling you
Check off the boxes send it on off
Wait for reaction to pulse through
But don’t push it little girl they just cannot forgive you
For the mask you’ve grown so accustomed to changing

(changing changing)
Changing
(changing changing oh no no!)

She’s not quite man, not quite alice.
She’s not quite man, not quite alice.

Walk on by
Pay the toll
Hand her off a piece of your soul
Watch the numbers rise with sore eyes
And call for the man to speed up her demise
Just a quick chase - you don’t want it to drag and drag and drag
Like the sun in the sky during a solar eclipse - unwanted and out of place

She’s not quite man, not quite alice.
Abandoned us in the labyrinth built by daedalus
With no wings to fashion for our selves
Because she’s callous
Alice… oh alice.

She’s not quite man, not quite alice.
Her friends all tell her that she’s the queen of malice.
But too bad for them - she’s a danger to herself!
Because she’s callous
Alice… oh alice.

Written By: Edgar Gonzalez Jr.

I have a lot on my mind but I don’t know how to put it into words
I hear things everyday and don’t know what to believe
There’s so many sides - one side or the other/wrong or right
I can’t even hide get out of the bright bright light

I hide sadness with a smile and show happiness with a grin

Stories I long to tell you yet no words are formulating
You ask me what’s on my mind and I just answer nothing
But there’s plenty that I can think of but too much is going on right now
And I can’t find a way of telling you
There’s a lot more to me than you think
There’s a lot more to me than you think

I hide sadness with a smile and show happiness with a grin

There’s so many sides - one side or the other/wrong or right
I can’t even hide get out of the bright bright light

There’s so many sides - one side or the other/wrong or right
I can’t even hide get out of the bright bright light

Stories I long to tell you yet no words are formulating
You ask me what’s on my mind and I just answer nothing but there are

Stories I long to tell you yet no words are formulating
You ask me what’s on my mind and I just answer nothing nothing nothing but

I hide sadness with a smile and show happiness with a grin
