Lyrics

Why?

Written By: Smooth Choppy

You’re so smooth… the way you bruise me so easily.
On and off again… always so inconsistently
At first, I thirst for an outburst at a cursed premonition
But I’ve made my provisions
I’ve seen the light… and I might be, just slightly
Giving it too much thought…. Did I hold on too tightly?
Nightmares display all my spoiled plans with broken hands.
Never thought you’d be the one to shun what you don’t understand.

If I hesitate to wait… Would we disintegrate?
But I still believe in fate.

Why? Why wait for tomorrow?
We could lose ourselves inside the sun
Why? Why wait for tomorrow?
Why wait for tomorrow?
What if it never comes?

Up and down, round and round, pull and tug, tug and pull
Can’t see from the wool blocking your vision
You’re favorite weapon’s been your indecision
I dreamed that everything was as it seemed
I’ve seen you turn green with animosity
Constantly tripping and spinning around
You lift me so high, then you pound me back down to the ground.
I’ve wondered if there’s something I’ve done
But I can’t outrun freefalling right into oblivion

Chorus

You must have lost patience…
Adapting and overcoming all these complications
I’m positive that I won’t break
But I guess testing fate is your choice to make.

Chorus

These Days (ZEN)

Written By: Smooth Choppy

I’ve been straight chillin’ like a villain fulfillin’ my dreams
Getting together my team, rippin’ shit apart at the seams
Who needs enemies with friends like these?
Who needs Tim C. to keep the peace? Not me…
It’s past that time to creep, I hear a meep-meep from Tony’s jeep
Now here we go… everybody’s meeting at Zen
Like my man Brandon Boyd… Are You In?
Cruisin’ along, singin’ a song… ain’t never been a damn thing wrong with
Highway blazin’ and tollway racin’
Ain’t no tellin’ what we’re gonna be facin’ tonight
Some suburbanites… but the moonlights bright like the glow of a black light
I plan to spend most my ends on friends…
We pull in around ten… let the fun begin

‘Cause we ain’t seen a better phase than these days

To continue… walkin’ through the door, T’s grabbin’ a menu
Seen it before but you know it’s a sin to laugh out loud
We ain’t that proud but you’re thinkin’ we might be
Hold on tightly and rightly so… here we go
Single file we stroll to the bar lettin’ ‘em know
That it’s time to place our bets
We all agree… maybe this is as good as it gets
Two shots of Rumplemintz, I lick my lips… sit back… watch you wiggle your hips a bit
Yo Travis! Get her that one shot hitter that’ll get her to feeling better.
I’ll give a wink and a smile… but you’re in denial
If you think you know my personal file
All the while I’ve told the truth
Learned from mistakes that we’ve made in our youth

Workin’ on another round… ain’t nothing can bring us down
‘Cause we ain’t seen a better phase than these days
Last call for beer and alcohol… you’re gonna get it better make it a tall.
Back to the bottom of my glass, hittin’ that grass…
If we’re goin’ out we’re goin’ out with a blast… Now
Some of ya’ll might not understand me
Some of ya’ll try to reprimand me
But every time some of ya’ll demand we throw down on the spot… givin’ it all we got
Not about to argue with you
Even though I know you’re wanting me to.
I’d rather be chillin’ in a Cadillac … puffin’ of Chron like a maniac
But I’ve got to do this ‘cause I know it is my duty
I’m sane… and you know I’m seeing through ya
I sing for coast to coast
You know we’re gonna be pullin’ out slow.

Workin’ on our final round, ain’t nothin’ can bring us down
‘Cause we ain’t seen a better phase than these days.

Hard To Ignore

Written By: Smooth Choppy

Today… I left a message on your windshield wiper
Standing in the pounding rain…
I’m slow… letting go.
So soon, you will hear my voice upon the wind
Close to you and whisperin’
You know the words I sing for you are true
All I’m missing… is you.

I’ve never felt this before
I always say I’ll walk away
But you are so hard to ignore

Hey… what’s the problem with us anyway?
I know that I may sound cliché
But it’s hard to keep these ghosts at bay
When all of my being is calling out for you.
I’ve tried to infiltrate your self-deceit
But part of you is incomplete…
And I refuse to taste defeat
As long as there’s hope in the future to start anew

I’ve never felt this before
I always say I’ll walk away
But you are so hard to ignore

Recognizing my addiction… hey
Puts me in the position to see
All of your falsified imagery… for sure

Take it or leave it, it’s really not up to me
Bless your little heart ‘cause you won’t know just what you had until I’m gone.

Out To Sea

Written By: Tim Canaday

Say… say what you need to say
I can promise that I won’t turn away even when my ears burn
Just hit me with the quickness
You… thrive off of chaos, so true
Attractive anomaly
No room for love when I finally get my turn
Now here comes some trouble

But if it’s comfortable…
Why should we let this go floating away?

Breathe… breathe me in and begin to see my side
Sleeping alone at night just can’t be right when I’d rather be
Watching you absorb me
Prime for a cloud nine climb
Because the rhythm in the night can be so sublime
And I swear that your whispers are pulling me out to sea
I’m fighting for survival

But if it’s comfortable…
Why would you let me go drifting away?

And if it’s possible…
Draw your attention away from your pain

So… here I go… out to sea
Further from memory.

Breakthrough

Written By: Smooth Choppy


Better pick it up a notch or watch it all slip away
Don’t claim to know it all while on my knees and I pray
Praying for a sign, seemed so simple now I’m not sure
All I can convey is my intentions are pure
On and on, enough to make me hesitate
We could drag out into the light, make it levitate
High above all these issues at hand that we don’t discuss
These issues of mistrust

Chorus

No finger pointing, these heathens are screaming get gone
What will it take for me to breakthrough to you
My grip is slipping it’s getting harder to hang on
I don’t want to let go but I will if I have to
My intuition is telling me just to stay strong
What will it take for me to breakthrough to you
I don’t want to let go but I will if I have to

Everything was fine
I’m trying to relax my core and unlock some doors
And interpret these signs with the time we’ve given
I thought you wouldn’t mind
Maybe I was HIGH….

CHORUS

Maybe my subtext is too complex for you
I’m still floating
Shake ‘em to break their necks and watch as they all move
Talk about regrets ‘till our hair fades to gray
Cast them on the ocean and watch ‘em all wash away

Wash away, we’ll watch ‘em wash away
Gonna watch ‘em all wash away
Wash away, wash away

What will it take, what will it take, what will it take
For me to breakthrough to you, through to you
What will it take to breakthrough to you

Long Gone

Written By: Tim Canaday


No turnin’ back when you choose this road
I learned my lessons from the legends of old
I’d like to teach you but I’m not that bold
when you’re long gone
I thought it precious this thing that we found
You lit the fire then watched it burn to the ground
I’d give you ashes but you’re nowhere around
Yeah you’re long gone

Just… Give it to me straight, baby, baby
Gotta figure out what’s going on
Just… give it to me straight, baby, baby
If it’s long gone

I saw this comin’ but I couldn’t steer clear
Victim of circumstantial pressure from peers
I mull it over while I’m drownin’ in beer
‘cause it’s long gone
Fought this decision with all of my might
You blame the rhythm but the rhythm was all right
I hope it haunts you deep in the night
that I’m long gone

Just… give it to me straight, baby, baby
Gotta figure out what’s going on
Just… give it to me straight, baby, baby
If it’s long gone

Let’s exhaust all our options first
Before we both end up dying of thirst
I see this going from bad to worse
now that it’s long gone
I bear a scar where this ring used to be
No longer waiting while you find your identity
The sex was so-so, emotionally you were long gone

Just… give it to me straight, baby, baby
Gotta figure out what’s going on
Just… give it to me straight, baby, baby
If it’s long gone

Repetitious

Written By: Tim Canaday

Don’t think for a second that I haven’t figured it out
If you don’t stop to breathe then the reaper will get you
So tired of watching you wallow in your self doubt
If you’d just stop to think then the reason will hit you
I know you’ve had enough; admit you’re not so tough
I’ll keep you going when the rowing and the ride gets rough
Keep telling me you’re perfectly fine
But, there’s a thin line between the out and the inside
You rank the pain nothing less than ten
Why make amends with your family and friends and then do it again?
Never mind where you dwell
Your own private hell
Bidding relationships farewell

Chorus
Why take the risk when you know you should let it go?
Over and over
Why turn your back on the people that you can trust?
It’s so repetitious.

Just give me one minute so I can get off the hook
If I adhere to rumors the people will get me
The higher I travel the better this all will look
If I don’t change the season the season will change me
My equilibrium is at its maximum
I’ll keep on screaming what I’m meaning till my time is done
Tell myself I’m perfectly fine
But there’s a thin line between the out and the inside
Pull out the stops, drop into the groove
I’m gonna do what I came here to do regardless of you
Never mind where I dwell
My own private hell
Bidding relationships farewell

CHORUS

Mister, mister… did you hear all about it?
Somebody’s spittin’ nothin’ but the truth down in Dallas
Far from his majesty, armed with a third degree
Bright, straight shooter with an Irish pedigree
Hold on, maybe you could grab the rope
It’s been so long since you’ve given up on hope
It’d be so wrong if you never learn to cope
With all the rough patches in life that strengthen your soul

CHORUS
It’s so…
It’s so…
It’s so repetitious

Start the Rhythm

Written By: Tim Canaday

Whoa my split personality
Is constantly calling to me
If I should realize here in the next moment
That I need your eyes watching me…
Then I’ll say… Then I’ll say

Start the rhythm, Start the rhyme…
So far, you’ve got me losin’ all my mind
What I’m trying to find out tonight is… why?
You keep pullin’, tuggin’ my chain
The evilest thing I’ve seen is the way you play this game
Sorry… but I’m having to put you out of my mind

But my split personality
Is constantly calling to me
If I should realize here in the next moment
That I need your eyes watching me…
Then I’ll say… Then I’ll say

Start the rhythm, Start the rhyme…
You get everything you want but still not satisfied
Sorry… but your back up plan isn’t working on me

What’s up, what’s up baby you’ve gotta let me know
Do you like it slow? Pick a place to go and then show me so.
All these people that be judging what they see…
Talking amongst themselves about the things that you and I may be… fuck ‘em
‘Cause there ain’t no way that they could ever understand
why I’d hold your hand… take ya to a far off land to tan
That’s just the type of man I am
Got all these people in my click saying damn
‘cause I wanna lick upon your lips
Rub you with my fingertips, you got my stomach doin’ flips mama…
I’m tired of all this drama invading my space…
So I’ll plead my case to you…
What else can I do? I tell you that I want you till my face turns blue.
But I can’t hide these feelings inside…
I know ‘cause I’ve tried.

So I just… start the rhythm, start the rhyme

Waking Up

Written By: Tim Canaday

We should stay in on Sundays…
During the week when I sleep without you I toss and turn
If the world catches fire…
We’ll sit back, relax, sip on some Jose’ and watch it burn
No more news from the T.V.
What I see makes my heart ache and my stomach churn
We could lead by example
If you learn to love me, baby, my love ain’t hard to earn

(Chorus)
If I tell you that I’m fallin’ would you fall too?
Would you tell me that you want me like I want you?
Calculating complications if I follow through
Waking up to… Waking up to your

Morning love is my weakness.
They don’t teach a defense in any school I’ve yet to see
Give me the mike so I can preach this
With a little bit of luck maybe we could save humanity
No more lies, caught me by surprise
Sever all my ties with all lustful eyes
‘cause you taste just like peaches
And I swear to you my love will last for eternity

CHORUS
Waking up to your love
Waking up to your love

I won’t worry about a thing
I’ll give in to intuition and see what the future brings
Waking up to your love, to your morning love
Baby I’m sold
Waking up to your love my old bones don’t feel so old.

No more lies, caught me by surprise
Sever all my ties with all lustful eyes
‘cause you taste just like peaches
And I swear to you my love will last for
I swear to you this love will last for
I swear to you my love will last for eternity

CHORUS
Waking up to your love
Waking up to your love

What We Sow

Written By: Tim Canaday

Got no love for your drastic
Measures I’ve underestimated ‘cause you’re plastic
I’ve seen through all of the webbing you weave
It’s a shame, it’s all the same
You’re thinking that it bothers me
I’ll get you home just in time for some lovin’
Then bring you back with no pushin’ or shovin’
What would it take to turn it backwards?
If that’s all that you’ve got
I think we need some shots

Chorus
tell me all that you know
better pay me all that you owe me
it’s no shock you’re swimmin’ in bad luck
You reap what you sow

Pulled up to the bar at about a quarter to two
Got my feelers on but I’m only lookin’ for you
Seems you got me with that sly, subtle, soft little smile
I can wait for a day, never changin’ the dial
So if you want some
Quit playin’ hard to get
If you want some
Maybe I could raise the bet
What would it take to grab the tide and turn it backwards?
If that’s all that you got
I think we need some shots

CHORUS

It’s so wild, I’m in denial
I want to breathe but not enough oxygen, you know you want to feel it
Hide, you wanna ride, but underneath all your bluffs
Lovin’ till you know you can’t conceal it

CHORUS

Ambivalence

Written By: Tim Canaday


I’m wrong but I’m right…
It’s black then it’s white…
We never start to battle before midnight
I’m like a hogtied Mogwai
A victim of my own curiosity but I won’t shy
Away from bright light, in hindsight the lime light
Never felt quite right on fight night
Now I’m slippin’ through your fingers
A dead ringer for some affection
Mama San… thanks for the lesson

‘Cause I expect no restitution
For all of the times I’ve spent
I will seek no retribution
For your ambivalence

Knock me down… I get back up
Flip up the peace sign, tell my people “What’s up!”
Then it’s on till the break of dawn
Baby’s got it goin’ on strong
Get the number to your phone… then I’m gone
Split apart but we’re still together
Part heart, part soul, part pain, part pleasure
Whatever’s clever in your galaxy…
But all I really needed was a little clarity.

‘Cause I expect no restitution
For all of the times I’ve spent
I will seek no retribution
For your ambivalence

Hey… waiting for brighter days over here
Hoping for anything magical
Suddenly everything’s mythical to my peers
Searching for middle ground
I think I’m coming down off of you
And if you want it, you’ll get it
Don’t secretly let it all bring you down
Becoming a part of you…

From another time it’s another rhyme that I’m praising…
Flickin’ nicotine from a limousine
Even when you’re wrong,
Never intervene
‘cause your thoughts are store bought
And your choices are whimsical.

Release the Kraken

Written By: Tim Canaday

CHORUS
We’re going back to the madness
So we can release the Kraken
We’re going back to the madness
So we can release the Kraken

Four score and several years ago
I didn’t think we’d get the opportunity to rock this show
Rose up to the challenge ‘cause we handle the pressure
Like a professional ninja
My clan, the one to take a stand
You can ask any organism across the land
Come one, Come on, Come all
We got that versatile style to put your back against the wall

And my people rose up
And somebody screamed

CHORUS

All I really want to do is kick it to the millions
Hittin’ fools hard like my boy Roy Williams
This is Dallas, ain’t no fallacy
You mess with one of us you’re messin’ with my whole damn team
Didn’t mean to get so personal
Take a picture punk, I’ll make it worth your while
It’s a longevity thing the way I swing
A sideways mack attack you’ve never seen
Pristine in my journey as I’m learning to grow
But you kept your lips flapping now we’re toe to toe
Blow for blow, I’m puttin’ down my pen to page
Looks about time to let the beast out the cage

And my people rose up
And somebody screamed

CHORUS

Product of Pressure

Written By: Tim Canaday

Trouble comes in threes, do what you please…
Busy as bees… flip me in one-eighty degrees
Utter chaotic catastrophe again…
Stressed to the max and taxed for past sins
Old debates that go on and on and on
Just give me love enough to make me strong
Not for nothing, but far from insipid
I’ll use my words as my weapon ‘till I’m old and decrepit
When we woke up face to face
Suddenly hot to trot for a change of pace
You never spoke up, or said goodbye
Quietly crept away like a thief in the night

Then I caught you singin’ that same old song
Livin’ your own life, lookin’ for too long
Under pressure
Just a product of pressure
Aren’t ya?
Just a product of pressure

Who’s the first in line?
Step aside…
Who’s the first to try?
‘Cause if the pressure gets you
it won’t let you protect your plate
I’ve got no time to wait today.

Who’ll believe in you now?
Who’ll believe in you now?

There’s something in the air tonight
But the scent’s so light… I take a whiff
Mmmm… yeah that smells like fright
Why bite the bullet if you’re pullin’ the trigger yourself?
Here’s to your health
Here’s to the life you put on the shelf
‘Cause it’s a long drive back to Eden from here
I tell you what… I’ll work the pedals
If you promise to steer dear
Fear no evil is the name of the game
No sulking in shame, no promises of riches and fame
It’s a hard road staying true to your vision
And wishing your future didn’t hang on every decision
It’s the best road to frequently travel
And it may end in gold but it started as gravel

And if you catch me singin’ that same old song
Livin’ my own life, lookin’ for too long
Under pressure
Just a product of pressure
Just another product of pressure

CHORUS x2

For the record,
For the record I’ve no answers
In the future,
In the future holler at me

‘Cause I caught you singin’ that same old song
Livin’ your own life, lookin’ for too long
Under pressure
Just a product of pressure
Aren’t ya?
Just a product of pressure

CHORUS x2

Signs

Written By: Tim Canaday

I’m just a hop, skip, and a jump away from claiming that I’m legally blind.
And I’m taken with the notion that you’re hopin’ we could intertwine… hey
I’ve watched you patrol
Searching for someone with some soul
I suppose dedication could cause aggravation
If one out of two won’t comply

So we start small talkin’ and we both start walkin’
Till we’re by ourselves
No need in being hasty but I need a little taste of somethin’
Bad for health
That’s when you imply
There’d be no reason to deny
Animalistic instincts, kinks in the chains of time
Unless I’m blind… you’re sending me signs

I’m just a hop, skip and a jump away from claiming that you’re legally out my league
What would it take for you settle for a little type of different personality?
I seem to recall
Getting no smile from you at all
Till the room started shakin’, your eyebrows raisin’
That’s when we started to vibe

I’m not stark sober but it’s almost over
Then it’s time to go
Invoke my patience but I need a vacation
At the liquor store
That’s when I imply
There’d be no reason to deny
Animalistic instincts, kinks in the chains of time
Unless I’m blind… you’re sending me signs

A sign constitutes a many different number of things
A wink, a grin, a wave, the lack of a ring
No altercations, I breathe in… keep low to the ground
No altercations… ‘cause look at all the love we’ve found
I’ll step aside for prophetic visions
And microscopic incisions that we’ve made when the grass ain’t green
Hold onto faith if you’re wanting to live
Never know if you’ll get just what you give

Come a little closer let me read your lips
Come a little closer to me
We’ll take our secrets with us to the other side
We’ll both go insane
On a lot of reefer and champagne
We’ll discuss dedication ‘cause this situation
Just won’t get better than this

Then the room started shakin’ you were mine for the takin’
About an hour ago
Now the suns comin’ up and I don’t give a fuck
Just like a gigolo
That’s when I recall getting no smile from you at all
Well it just goes to show you never know what you may find
Unless I’m blind… I picked up your signs.

This Too Shall Pass

Written By: Tim Canaday

I was only twenty, I had plenty of time
To find my way back home
And even though I may feel lonely inside
I find myself far from alone
Hundreds of places, hundreds of faces
Wondering what’s going round in my head
I plead the fifth to all of your questions
So please don’t ask me again

Blasphemy and cruelty
Drowned out by our burning grass
Stay awhile… find your smile
This too shall pass

Well… honesty is not their policy
They tell lies and pass them as true
I’m so confused, I’m so abused…
I really have no idea of what I have to do
Hundreds of places, hundreds of faces
Wondering what’s going round in my head
I plead the fifth to all of your questions
So please don’t ask me again

Blasphemy and cruelty
Drowned out by our burning grass
Stay awhile… find your smile
This too shall pass

I’ve been told when it’s all said and done
You should never put a limit on too much fun
But in this place, in my case
I’ve got about a million different reasons to give chase
But I won’t… and I can’t complain
‘cause I’m not about to buckle underneath this strain of pressure
Guess I let you get to me again… but I shouldn’t of let you.

Blasphemy and cruelty
Drowned out by our burning grass

Verse of the Evening

Written By: Tim Canaday

There’s that number one fan
Shaking her fist as hard as she can
Front row taking a stand
Forsaking her man for the band that she came to see
Hmm… Smooth Choppy?
Bit off a chunk of some of that funk
The danker the skunk the better the funk
To bump in the trunk
Looks into my eyes backstage and says
“Mmm… don’t stop me.”
Singin’ every lyric even though I can’t hear it
And I know that you know the words
She sees through the haze to brighter days
Flippin’ the bad times the bird
She lives for all the moments in her life she can just let go
And I know… and I know to take it slow

I must’ve been dreaming,
I’m feigning just to believe in you
Who knew a midnight rendezvous construed
Taking this avenue of hold me and I’ll hold you back
Don’t even need a second to check it I think I’m begging
for a second straight heart attack
Things I wanna hear, need to hear start to cross your lips
Then I’m watching as you throw away another day
Hands upon your hips
If you’re thinking that it’s easy
maybe you could tease me
Shootin’ the breeze some more
We’ve got common ground all around
And the time to explore

Gotta get this pressure off my chest
Never been the type to settle for second best
Impressed with your loveliness
Undressed… lookin’ at me lookin’ luscious
But never the less… you’re a sorceress
Dark hair, light eyes and venomous
Things are hazy, I’m crazy out of my mind
Thinkin’ that you’re perilous
I’ve been fighting, biting… wrists all bound by rope
I’ve been hollering, smoldering… thinkin’ bout nothing but hope
I love the way you love to drive me crazy
Even if it’s just subliminally

Reality

Written By: Tim Canaday


After time…
You can see more clearly
Everything that you knew is still a mystery
Now how can that be?
Why play all of the games that lead up to nothing?
Follow me now and I can show you something you could say…

I feel reality is haunting me tonight… whoa
Sooner or later… we must face the fire in our lives…

They’re coming up slowly
They’re trying to take me
They’re wanting to break me
But ain’t no reason to give ‘em the time to complicate me
I’m lookin’ up to the sky…
No time to ask him why I didn’t die
Please gimme my wings so I can start to fly
I’ve been thinkin’ it over… now I’m giving it all I got
For the people that know me… ready to give it one more shot
Come clean… there ain’t no need to keep yourself serene
Just open up your mouth and say what you really mean

I’m battling emotions that I don’t know how to show
And I’m trying not to think about the things I didn’t know
Keepin’ a tight lip. Was it all worth it in the past?
Say just what you feel because forever never lasts
Beginning to see red and you don’t seem to be concerned
You’re playing round with fire and you’re going to get burned
Talkin’ that bullshit. Will it be worth it in the end?
You just won’t understand until it comes back to you again.

Don’t wanna have to look at things you can’t deny.
Just because you could doesn’t make it right.
Tell me once again…
What are the virtues of humans that you like to call friends
Takin’ a picture… you can have it here you go.
So you can say it didn’t matter that I told you so.
I’m losing control… whatever I do… I can’t let go.

Flash of lightning now I see clearly…
That I don’t want a drop of drama even near me.
Hear me well, you never can tell when I’ll ring your bell
Because I’m comin’ out my shell with a fool proof plan
Now I’m understanding what it takes to be a man
In a very short time span
Life will be whatever it will be…
But that’s so hard to see when reality is haunting me.

Ricochet

Written By: Tim Canaday

Even an imbecile can sense this electricity
It don’t take a scientist to see the complicated chemistry
Harder and harder we try
I see that look in your eye
I’d rather die than see you stand beside un-readiness
You say that times are tough, but isn’t love enough
To penetrate your fortress

So give me one reason I should fall asleep
Just give me one holiday beyond the Milky Way
And a promise that you have to keep
Just give me one… Just give me one ticket to simplicity
Just give me one proposition, some verbal ammunition
Then fire away
And revel in the ricochet

It don’t take a preacher’s son to see that I could worship you
It don’t take a psychic to figure that you might like it
And I know that you do… I know that you do
Further and further we travel on down this uncharted road
Searching for hearts of gold
I’ll fill the hole in your soul
I know you’ve had it rough, but ain’t my love enough
To finally break the mold

So give me one reason I should fall asleep
Just give me one holiday beyond the Milky Way
And a promise that you have to keep
Just give me one… Just give me one ticket to simplicity
Just give me one proposition, some verbal ammunition
Then fire away
Then revel in the ricochet
If only for one night I decide to return
I’ll be bringing my thoughts with me
If only a peace of mind is all that I find
I can leave you behind
‘cause I’d rather be blind than be your charity

Message

Written By: Tim Canaday

Resurrected from the dead but now he’s feeling great
Threw all his troubles in a pan, let ‘em marinate
Obliterated things he hated deep within his bones
Content to spend most of his time standing all alone
He’s heard about all of the rumors that grow like tumors,
But he just let’s them go

Slow to reaction to the fraction of the people who’ve
Been servin’ him up some appetizers of some attitude
His aptitude for gratitude is all but at its peak
Been fighting against all of the evil that some people speak
And if it means certain death, he’ll take a deep breath
But he won’t compromise.

He hopes they got the message
He hopes they got the…

Message and lessons we’ve learned but lost
Things that we’ve earned but tossed
Never been cross with people watching frost
Melt up off his shoulder the older he gets
His etiquette gets better with every person he’s met
He’s got experience in indifference, but love is his preference
Even when they show no common sense
He thinks he may have finally figured them out
He throws his hands to the sky with a cry
Then he start’s to shout…

“Give me something real!
Give me something real… gimme something that I can feel
I’ve been tossing and turning and yearning for something to change
I’m to blame for my misconceptions, misgivings from all of the lack of affection
Receiving… wake me if I’m dreaming
Don’t be surprised to see me on this rooftop and screaming
Give me something real!
Give me something real!”
