Biography

Moglee is a character that was created by four friends when they were in high school. He loves making music more than he loves doing anything else. He hopes that people get excited when they hear his music. He wants people to smile, laugh, yell, dance, and maybe sometimes get a little angry when people hear his music. He looks forward to sharing his music with as many people as he can.

Moglee has shared the stage with the likes of The Flatliners, The Planet Smashers, Shad, Down With Webster, Crash Parallel, The Junction, and Lifestory:Monologue.

Moglee is at home when performing and strives to distribute as many dance moves and goosebumps around the audience as possible.

Moglee's full length CD is called Recess! (named after his favourite period in school) and is available at Moglee's concerts, on CD Baby, on iTunes, at certain Beat Goes On locations, Encore Records, Pandora Press, Orange Monkey Records and other random digital distributors on the net. Google can help with that.


Lyrics

Stormy Weather

Written By: Dan Kruger

Get up, common it's time to work, skirt?
Or your black dress? Or your white collared shirt?
Sure, this one will probably be your cure
Your, money, house, cars, silk, and fur
Stir, up your life for sure
Your, cat likes you she purs, (Ppprrr)
Your boyfriend likes your curves
Sure, but sometimes you just hurt
You're, stuck in a frozen blur (bbrrrrrr)
And everyone is blankly staring
And your card games aren't so daring
I think it's time that we started to see
Get on some jeans and sing with we

Chorus:
Money and brand new leather
Can't buy you smiles today
Even in stormy weather
We'll be there come and play
We'll start a whole new era
We'll start a whole new ride
No briefcase, no mascara
Come on, let's go outside

You could be robbed, shot, no help from the cops
Police opt out to stop, those criminals who plot
And you won't even notice life's going so fast
And you can't understand it, but you know it won't last
WE NEED TO SLOW DOWN!
Get your feet on the ground
When have they asked you what you're thinking of, huh?
When have they asked you to page love, huh?
I think it's time that we caught up
Get your eyes stuck to the sky, let's watch the doves

(Chorus)

No matter who you are, hell you could be Jafar
We've got a lot to play
We're sure you've got a lot to say
No matter where you've been
No matter what you've seen
We'll be there! We'll be there!
Come outside!

(Chorus)

Glow

Written By: D. Kruger

Fat pockets, and a pudgy smile
His green stained eyes say they're worth your while
And his, mouth opens
Slogan rhyme
Hands grabbing to get first in line
Oh no, you're fooled
Subliminal crime
Anything to get his hands on a dime
His wrists so fat, bulging at the sides
His gold watch seems like it's running out of time
Well this time he's got you tricked
He's got a new toy for you, you'd better come quick
Hypnotized, he leads you in to jail
Just as he mentions the pendulum's for sale

Pre-Chorus:
He knows
What to do
To get money out of you
He partners screens with your pupils
And he fastens them with glue
Some say he's fake
Some say he's mean
But he turns green kids
In to green machine

Chorus:

His NOSE!!
(Every time he starts to speak)
(Every time he sees you're weak)
GROWS!!
(Every time your wallet leaks)
As your mind loses its
GLOW!!
(Every word you hear from him)
(Every time you listen in)
(Every time you let him win)
YYYEEEAAAHHHH!!!!!!

This man's got you in a bubble
Got you scoped out like the Hubble
Makes you think your biggest trouble's
How you get your double double
His conscience's face
Is beat and torn
Coz when you win the rat race
You don't become a unicorn
The man sells he does it well
By his pocket's you'll tell
He's got a shell
It serves him well
So his indifference doesn't melt
He takes his money tree & grows it
He's Midas junior and he knows it
He shows it, he chose it
As long as you've got money
And you'll blow it

Pre- Chorus

Chorus

The Penny Song

Written By: D. Kruger

Well I was walking in the park one day
When I saw a loose penny
Gone astray
I figured I'd just leave it there
What could a penny pay for anways?
"STOP!!"
A little girl screamed
She told me I was so naive
She said that penny could stop a war
She said that penny could feed the poor
"NAIVE!?"
"Are you talking to me?
One little penny, honestly?"
She told me give it to her
And then I'd see
So I handed it over
And she started to see
She sang

Chorus:

La X 10000000.

Then she stopped
She said, "See what I mean?"
I said, "Little girl, you sure can sing.
But where does the penny come in?"
And the little girl, she started to grin
"You see, the penny's to remember me.
To remind you:
- singing can bring one peace
To remind you:
- little ones can't stand the killing
To remind you:
- of all the blood that's spilling
So keep a penny in your pocket until you're gone
To remind you:
- that killing's wrong
To remind you:
- of the light I shone
To remind you:
- of my song."
And she sang

Chorus

Since the day that that little girl sang me her song
Pens and pencils in my hand
Been writing all my wrongs
So I started giving pennies out
By sun and by moon
Pennies just for peace
From that beautiful tune
And she sang!

Chorus

Plan B

Written By: D. Kruger

Based on Lester Browns Plan B series of books about our current environmental crises.

We've got fire!
We've got wind
We've got water
But they're TIRED!
Of being abused by their songs and daughters
They're confused!
Who's the mother, who's the father?
Well nature feeds us and we eat?
So who's really the mother?
OBEY!
When oil wells scream
OBEY!
When blue water turns green
OBEY!
When polar ice caps stream
Plan A isn't working
It's time for Plan B

Chorus:

We've got nowhere left to run
And nowhere left to go
You'll tell by storms
And when no more lettuce grows
We've got a lot to do
If we would see
Plan A isn't working
It's time for Plan B

We're kicking tires
We refuse to move our shoes
Seem to be glued
We're screwed
We're beginning to lose
Mother nature's in a scrap
And she's starting to bruise!
Common!
Don't stop, don't stop!
It's too early now!
Everybody rock, body rock!
With me now!
We've got to realize!
Plan A has stumbled
So stomp your sneakers
Make the pavement rumble!

Chorus

Date Book

Written By: D. Kruger

The pen marks on your date book
Scare me sometimes
Did you eat breakfast this morning?
Did you pencil in a cry?
I'm not saying that you need one
I'm not saying that you do
But sometimes I feel the pressure
To have a cry for you
You're way to free too beautiful
To stay cooped up by a clock
Maybe that's the way you like it
But to me your wings do not
I think the other side
It misses you
The one we used to know
The one I used to meet you in
The one we used to go
This other place we're lost in
Let's face it
It sucks.
We're being thrown around so much
And any sleep you get is luck

Chorus:

But it's all over whenever you want it
Just come say my name
I'll come running to your doorstep
With a game and some cupcakes
That's the place I thought of us going
The one where we would feel
So free and so beautiful
I just hope this place is real
But what I DO know
Is that you've been up since 6am
You crazy little punk
I think it's time you went to bed
Go to bed

Now I don't mean to be intrusive
Maybe I just like to judge
Maybe that's just one of my downfalls
Second to baseball and fudge
And if those three things encourage you
To turn away from
I'm glad I didn't mention any others
Like Dr. Dre and stupid comedy
And in the end
If you decide to walk away
And let me be
I hope you find a friend who doesn't fail to set you free
Maybe that's all I wanted
You find whatever it is I've lost
You take an eraser to your Date Book
And you show it who's boss!

Chorus

Go to bed!
Rest your head.
Go to bed and rest your head.
Coz that cliche
Is far too underfed.

Pacifist March

Written By: D. Kruger

Waves Pop!
Shells burn and drop
All around this world hate circles like a top
Singin WAR! WAR!
Remember? What for?
I say for peace, you say for more
But I'm just a lonely pacifist
I prefer reason to using fists
While you keep training, killings kids
I WANT NO PART!
Nazis killing Jews, earth became hell
Now Jews killing Arabs
Palestine/Israel
Second World War to today
Jews can't feel safe
Zionists killing others just to build their own state
Nobody understands!
That nobody's right!
If you're taking lives
You need to see some light!
Doesn't anybody remember Mohandas Ghandi?
Militant non-violence
And now a whole continent's free

Chorus:

If somebody knew a way
To stop the killing now, today
We must follow them one and all
To kill this vicious game we play
If somebody closed the door
On all the killing, all the war
The new utopia would start
But until then
We sing the pacifist march!

Ratatatat!
It was all a dream!
The bloodshed's back!
It won't leave it seems!
So we start pointing fingers
Terrorists!
The Middle East!
Someone must've been a fan of Walter McCarthy
The states' oil black pupils dilate forth and back
Saudi Arabia's next
Just need a reason to attack
And once they're bathing in fuel
They'll look up to the sky
Its blackened shield will be falling from on high
It was TOO LATE!
GW got us in the end!
George Bush, Global Warming
Same difference, we're dead!
And all of our walls will have ended us forever
And everyone will scream,
"We should have worked together!"

Chorus

Rain Roses

Written By: D. Kruger

Rain roses fall from the sky
Stemless and pure is their prize
I jot it down
To keep the picture clear in my mind
That way I can come back to them next year
I can remember them
And smell the absence of fear
The best part of them is that they don't evaporate
They stay here keeping us awake
They fight off fire
Asbestos they can
If there's a wake in the morning
They rain down on the land
Sprouting out of doubt
And out of hate
They are dispensed to squash them
No matter what it takes
Hundreds and thousands and trillions of them
You can see them if you look
Rain rose gems

Chorus:

They glow like fire
Taste like rain
Nobody knows where the rain roses began
But they fall like bricks
Every day
They feel like cotton when they touch your face
X2

Rain roses know how to love
They love to help out
Since Miss Fortune was divorced
They've been searching for a new spouse
They help the blind, and their seeing eye pups
If you breaking your glasses they'll fill new ones up
Their mission is to love
To see us smile
They'll make you remember to when you was a child
But if you let go of hope
If you let fear rise
They'll vanish like an E#
Right in front of your eyes

Chorus

Pusher

Written By: D. Kruger

Black night!
Pusher in the alley way
Finger to the sky
Giving cold cat eyes to people walking by
Fingers to his lips, he lights a spliff
Bust a spoon out
FIRE!
Urging for a pin prick
Woah mother! Woah!
Where did your boy go?
He's a cold cat pusher
Dripping in snow
Toque cap cover over his face
Cold cracked lover staring in to space
We don't know what happened when he was young
Was a blur of a child
With a machete tongue
Been guessing for awhile but never got close
He's not alive not dying
But he might be a ghost

And if you want to see him:

Chorus:

He hides in the night
You know he's there
Black garbage bag his business chair
Lurking in his dirty lair
No-one around to hear his prayers

Juke box rhythms on the pavement!
Making feet move!
While to cold cat pusher refuses to groove
Don't have no collar to pop
Don't know how to dance
So he sets up shop
And he takes a chance
There's a rough looking girl playing pick up sticks
So the boy pushes over
Fixes her first fix
When he gets back to his lair he has to dash
There's a cop lurking near
So he ditches the hash
But the cop caught up
He landed the boy in jail
He looked at his hands
And he knew he had failed
If he'd get another chance, he'd be a fair player
But instead he has to stare at a court house glare

And if you want to see him:

Chorus

Lay Down

Written By: D. Kruger

So you're tired
You just want to rest tonight
You've got so much to do
No time in sight
So you get out your books
You start to read
But nothing sinks in at all
All the words just bleed
And you feel you've fit everything that want know
You've got to take it easy
Oh just take it slow
We've all been there at least once
And we never want to stay
But you've got to take it easy
Just for one day

Chorus:

You've got to lay down Sally
It's the end of the war
The whole world's listening
Get ready to roar
Common and lay down Sally
It's time to take a rest
You've been up all night
Trying to be the best
So lay down!

Now you're flat. . . .
Faced on your desk!
And you've dozed off, you've closed off
You need a rest
Well get up Sally
Your face is dirty
It's only two o'clock
School's out at two thirty
And you feel you've fit everything that want know
You've got to take it easy
Oh just take it slow
We've all been there at least once
And we never want to stay
But you've got to take it easy
Just for one day

Chorus

And we know it's hard
And you're tired today
So get up, re-fuel
Take a break
If you learn one lesson
While you're in this trance
It should be to let loose
Get up and dance!
We've got all the time in the world to work
So get up now Sally
Don't be a jerk
Trust me, it's OK to have a little fun
So put away your books
Let's go outside and run

Chorus

The Opener

Written By: D. Kruger

We've still got a long way to go
Until euphoria is close
But your chair doesn't help one bit
So get up, stand up
Don't you sit
That's called pressure from the band
You can release it
You can dance
You've got a storm in your head
It needs to be soothed
It needs to be soothed
So find an island
And slide a jungle groove

Can you feel the storm dying
(It's dying)
If you can't, you're not trying
(You're not trying)
You're no longer plastic
(Your limbs are elastics)
And your moves are fantastic
Oh tilt your head
(Up high!)
Oh raise your hands
(To the sky)
Forget about the clock
Start moving
Grooving
There aren't any road blocks

We aren't singing the blues
We're just stomping out some grooves
We're trying to release you
So get some jungle in your shoes
x2

You've finally stopped the rain!
You've rid yourself of your pain!
Just hope others have done the same!
