Track Name: City
author entertains, barking at yer brains
uh oh, right?
(juvenile)
author can't relate, patently irate
uh oh, right?

the city gone 'n gimme sick sound

caterwaul & groan
bellow & bemoan
uh oh, right?
(juvenile)
honey-spittin' grit, haughty artifice
uh oh, right?

the city gone'n gimme sick sound

primates paw squawk-boxes, they clog the crosswalks
bumbling towards the extinction of grace
bumbling towards the extinction of grace
it's a worrisome din
back in the cave where the treatise lay, unsigned
I labor over pristine rhyme (that blows)
but if you dig it
if you can dig
if you dig.. I'll not fret a rewrite

author entertains, barking at his brain
uh oh, right?
(persona borderline)
author can't relate, patently irate
uh oh, right?

the city gone'n gimme sick sound

why it wanna gimme sick sound?
Track Name: Classique
I meant to utilize kindness,
I was stricken with reticence
oh, you don't know me…
ever the hypocrite
I'm prone to ration compassion,
I struggle with hesitance
oh, now you don't know me?
ever the hypocrite

classic
neophyte twits bungling sardonic wit
classic
caustic be the flavor of the quips I savor
classic

I get the concept of beauty,
it heralds my limitations
oh, you don't know me…
ever the hypocrite
I can identify regrets,
they bully my memories
oh, now you don't know me?
ever the hypocrite

charming!
what a delight!
to mill around, upright, bare-minimum energy
charming!
what a delight!
to never be hindered by crippling chemistry

this apathy bores me
and I'm not one to champion pizazz
but this "blah for the sake of"..
it's ironic jazz
it's desperate nostalgia
it's J.V. posturing
a city of snot-rags, cocking their heads to the side-
eye rolls aplenty
wolfing down language, barfing up acronyms
calling it "brilliance"…

classic
neophyte twits bungling sardonic wit
classic
caustic be the flavor of the quips I savor
classic
Track Name: Peccadilloes
fetch your favorite woe, yes!..
we'll have us a contest-
that all within earshot may marvel at our misery
point! heavy, heavy childhood
point! heavy, heavy drug use
common the misery
common is the misery

my, how our skulls do so cherish those troubles & trials they get to rewind
non-stop dismay displayed
harmony please, please be mine

fetch the peccadilloes
all the peccadilloes
every sin a success
zero culpability
common is the jackass
common is the jackass
common is the myth that reason is the enemy

my, how my nerves downright thrill at the thought of a time our skulls won't collide
non-stop dismay displayed
harmony please, please be mine

bet yer bits I hollered with the dregs, and I assure you there were no mantras in kind
situated 'round the cul de sac the cult of talk talk talk
(stockpile idiots who lob stock idioms)

what every honky knows
rather
what every honky should know, is-
suffering ain't gauche...
when you got the pedigree

marvel at the misery
Track Name: Sassy
collect glistening opinions
savvy motherfucker, cunning wit'dem lazy lies
ate my id for control
left my gut growling "no, no, no, no"

forgettable villains,
working jive hardly tantalize
harvesting opinions
cherry pick opinions
offer those opinions that'll lull lowest hanging fruit

all manner of derision, is weak stock in shaky company
when company gotta go-
so do momentary gold
honoring debris that sassy fuckers plagiarized
chatter under sheets?
chatter oversold

working jive hardly tantalize
harvesting opinions
cherry pick opinions
brittle goals

personalities eat personality
Track Name: Darnette
Buh-buzzin' babies
suckle teat of validation
(lucrative enterprise)

Well- welcome
sycophant!
Track Name: People (You've No Idea How Awful They Are)
some would sooner sacrifice a firstborn than sacrifice a weekend
shoddy workmanship is, uh, on the fucking rise

some would sooner plant their gums 'round their thumb than endure inconvenience

grotesque neglect- a symptom of selfishness
a catchy, catchy, catcy, catchy malady

(it's a cinch they'll pitch a total fit)

hue of a rouge might rile the prude
for me? it's demeanor
skew of their views
the crude they exude
for me? their endeavors

ruffian queen, she a brash mama jama
she can dry-hump weathered asphalt into smooth avenue
and the party-prone sage, he a wealth of affirmation..
he's a keen motivator to a slew of ingénues
and the dyed-in-the-wool scribe, he a multitask daddy
he's a calm coordinator of a muss & fuss theme
and the motor-mouth thug, he a haggard romantic-
coveting reluctance of ruffian queens
cast people flush with heightened emotions-
you get the pageantry of petulant pigs
to fraternize with those given to vanity-
one learns to customize cursory grins
mine's not to wrangle indelible notions-
why blow composure for blustering prigs
it's a cinch they'll pitch a total fit

aw, people..
c'mon people!
ain't nothin' too special about just being alive
Track Name: Adieu
strike up the band, sister chanteuse
blare the fanfare the squares bite
here's where insane'll get you "aw, cute"
here's where insane is worth a thin dime
hereon insane ain't but "coo coo"
hereon insane ain't but "coo coo"
hereon insane ain't but "coo coo"
hereon insane ain't but "coo coo"

watch I decimate a good vibe
watch I desecrate a goodbye

strike up the band, brother screw loose
blare the fanfare the squares will write
here's where insane'll get you "aw, cute"
here's where insane is worth a thin dime
hereon insane ain't but "coo coo"
hereon insane ain't but "coo coo"
hereon insane ain't but "coo coo"
hereon insane ain't but "coo coo"

before you go forgiving the family
before you pry the nails from the cross
crush empirical wisdom
bid adieu to rational thought

before we get to quit tin' the city
before we get to call it a wash
trash empirical wisdom
bid adieu to rational thought
