Liquium™ 03:50
The world it seems Is too much for me I can't escape anxiety It permeates my daily life and now I've got to try it Illegal drugs are not for me I'm a pillar of society Now I have all this stress and anxiety From years of denial I'm so lonely in this life of dreaming distress But I know that I'm OK Cause there's Liquium™ to help me through the day When I really start feeling the doubt There's Liquium™ to help me out There is a way and it's Liquium™ today It's all I need, this Liquium™ is for me I'm not a drug addict That 's plain to see I only take whats prescribed for me I can't escape this ringing now Leaves me feeling like a grazing cow I know I'm healthy and I'm legal as all the rest They hit me up because there's Liquium™ on my desk I'm on my way to work again It's all I've got, there not even friends Now I understand what it's like to be a broken man And it's hard to accept this fate But Liquium™ helps me through the day All you'll know is all that you'll ever be

Tabouli 02:20
If you only knew What to do You've got to move on now You've got to move your soul Soundless unwind me Lead me down the (w)hole - day through If I had a life and lied in my dreams Where would it lead me now? If I had some time and I cried in my sleep Where would it lead me now? You've got the crowd You just don't know how You've got to move on and on If I had a life and I lied in my dreams Where would it lead me now? If I had to cry and I lied where I weeped Where would it lead me now? If I had to try and every time I lied Where would it lead me now?

Some times I drift forever Some times I think I see Some times red rivers Come and carry me out to sea Some times I'm weary And some times I'm weak You've got to lose you mind - And put a tear in it Light make up time - Which is precarious You've got to free your mind - Instead of wearing it Life takes up time - You've got to carry it You think your doing fine - But beware of it You life is on the line - You've got to care for it Before you lose your mind - And put a tear in it We might just all get by - Why don't you share a bit Some times I've got all the answers And some times I'm way off track Some times I feel like I've lived forever Maybe that's why I've got a sore back Some times and never Compromise facts You've got to lose you mind - And put a tear in it Light make up time - Which is precarious You've got to free your mind - Instead of wearing it Life takes up time - You've got to carry it You think your doing fine - But beware of it You life is on the line - You've got to care for it Before you lose your mind - And put a tear in it We might just all get by - Why don't you share a bit

Waitin' Here 03:15
I spend a lot of time waitin' here Here inside my head I'd be tellin' you a lie If I said I like it here instead I wish that I was high And far away, far outside my head I waste a lot of time Waitin' here, wait until I'm dead Life's a hope that lies Under there, underneath the bed Takin' up my my time When I know I'd be better off when dead I'd write you a few lines If I thought that they ever would be read I wish that I could fly Out of here, out inside my head

Always felt sorry for the garbage man Workin' so hard doin' what he can Pickin' up trash all day long Got nothin' else goin' on That dirty old garbage man Workin' so hard for the rest of the clan At the front line, at the front can Seein' all the trash that the others throw away Lookin' at it all day Never want to be a garbage man Here it pays good, well they got the plan That dirty old garbageman

So Love Me 02:28
If I could hide away my dear I guess that you'd be free Free to live your life alone, underneath the sea I confess that I am high but why do you write me? All those things your dreaming of, so love me Write me soon and sing a song, my god I've got to read About those tales from far away and underneath the sea Houses come and houses go but you and I perceive All you have to go and linger on and measure nothing Linger on, linger on and measure nothing, linger on and measure nothing...linger If I were free and you conceived a thought beneath the trees A simple wife a fallen life between the two or three Find my way along the pass among the fallen leaves "Where you goin' now?" you say that "I have lost my way" "Where you goin'?" I have got to put it on today

I Like It 01:43

Sign of an empty nest Bare branches a cotton vest I wander upon this broken wheel The sight of an empty glance I wander the streets of chance The summer is gone The bugs all die Evening growing string The night time is getting long A refuge of warmth to hide your fears It happened this time last year A falcon, rest now my dear The desert of hope claims many Sign of an empty nest Bare branches a cotton vest The summer is gone The bugs all die The sight of an empty glance I wander the streets of chance I wander upon this broken wheel

Light shines on Fables of peace Fables so wrong now Night rolls on Under the neath Under so long I'm still strong Strong as the sheep Weak as the song Wait so long Always so right Always so wrong, lord My mind's gone Under the neath Over the song so Labor on Over the peaks Under the clouds

Door is open, door is closed Windows open don't you pose Don't you do what you are told Foreign minds are open/close Hope with fishing, don't despair You listen now you are not fair We haven't got the simple time To mingle and to linger on Doing what the simple told The children play they do what they're told They do what they are mimicking the media Children play the children told Children have not problems They are told what the problems are Children don't like to be there Don't you care now don't you listen Fill their minds with simple bliss And give them all the hero worship Idol worship is a disease Door is closed The windows open do what you're told Don't you pose you simple minded empty fool Starlight shines in the sky Starlight shine down on man kind Starlight is a thousand point of specks Stars are dust Don't you listen don't you care I have seen the simple way Door is open door is closed The windows there now don't you pose Mind is empty mind is closed Foreign minds are simple told In the streams a bucket Carry on my dream

Secretly and silently Crossing over hills Down creeps from yonder mountain The Sun gives us thrills Divide mighty rivers Secret thrills Canopies unwaver In their not mighty hills Answering all your secret thrills Yonder hills Bring sunshine to the life Bring earth another thrill Special like the star of crossing Makes me ill You cross the sky of night

They Landed 03:42
Finally a few thousand years ago Lost in broken scout ship They landed, crash landed On a great green ball It was covered with clouds and waterfalls They had to get back But the ship was broken, that's a matter of fact When suddenly they stumbled upon some things Hangin' out in the trees You know they planned it To make a slave culture Using their own DNA as a source Mixing with the things We are what they needed to raise up the technology level You know that they thought that they could make it back They saw that it was a matter of fact They landed, crash landed On a great green ball It was covered with clouds and waterfalls They had to get back But the ship was broken They were all alone, they had no home Their planet was three thousand light years gone And the turbo warp lift drive was broken When suddenly they saw that they had a need Of slave labor camps They were not real They were SPACEMEN from another place They had to modify a lower species to make it work Then they made a slave culture And suddenly they liked it, it was better than home Now we imitate them to this vary day Destroying the Earth in every way This planet was abandoned By the spacemen We were left to fend all on our own We inherited language And our own faulty thinking is a side effect

In the light on the water below I will find my grave From the light of the silvery moon I will find my way By the water that floats beside me I will have my day All alone in this night, strolling I will find my way By the light of the silvery moon On the watery shade In the light on the water below me I will find my grave Wander, slowly Ponder late Lifeless, all around me Maybe, some day On my, all around me On the shore, beside me I can see From the light By the water I will find my way By the light of the silvery moonlight I will find my grave

All my life I had a dream That we could play and write some songs Have some fun and make some music Eat some food and get along But you stole my horn line Ripped me off blind Play it out and call it yours Cause of that you're on the path Of self-destruction. Warned you now! Whats a friend worth? You're so unsure Your band's a bunch of total strangers You stole my horn line Ripped me off blind Play it out and call it yours

Secrecy 01:51

So you think you're a star - like the one in the sky Won't get you too far - not too far not too high Maybe the Moon or Mars - maybe, maybe But Mars ain't that far - not when you consider everything else Growing thoughts in your skin - growing thoughts in your skin Growing thoughts let them in, let them in, let them Here we are - on our way to Mars On our way to Mars In a silvery craft - shaped like a missile Paid for by tax - me, myself and I Six month delay - what the hell they waitin' for On the live telecast make me ask, make me ask - should we ask? Why does it take so long? I mean when we had the Apollo Moon missions we saw live footage of the astronauts as they stood there. Everyone on earth saw that. but on the Mars mission everything is hidden because of the things they have seen on the surface of Mars. Why does this all have to be so top secret do they think we are ignoramus brains? Why does the secret cult - well you know their names Handle the business - they've got all the money Who checks on them - who checks their checks? I think it should be the people - me, myself and I Throwing rocks in the rain Hurting rocks fear the pain, fear the pain, fear the pain Fear the pain

Evening there beside the sea Lingering there a friend in need By the rocks where the sea meets the scene Sea meets the scene There you see Lingering by the rocks and trees Hoping for your fair share you see You see by the rocks and trees Rocking the rocks The sea By the sea lingering on the rocks you see E E E

Policemen have never been my heros Policemen just want to cage you in Policemen have never been my idol Look at that stupid car their in Fat donut eatin' coffee drinkin' hero Driving around my menacing neighborhood You must have some kind of problem To carry a gun and go lookin' for trouble yeah Policemen never been my hero Drivin' in that stupid car Blastin' sirens past midnight And runnin' red lights for free, yippee (turn on the lights Fred) Cause Policemen just aren't friends (friendly)

Drugs Kill 03:40
Drugs kill, sixty nine cents, pay your bill, park bench New merchandise arriving daily My favorite muffin Give me some coffee, whiskey and Baileys My favorite muffin Drugs kill, pay your bill Sixty nine cents, park bench New merchandise arriving daily Give me some coffee, whiskey and Baileys My favorite muffin

about

While reviewing my mix archive for another album project I came across a series of songs, mostly recorded before the turn of the millennium. My first thought was, "wow these are really depressing." But overall, they contain candid expressions of my life at that time. I present them here as a way to release them to the world and hopefully release them from myself.
