song lyrics

“Somewhere Sorry”

I miss the Vegas of my childhood
seedy, yet stylish

Now the city is sold, leaving nothing special.
The exact same way apologies are hollow.
apologies are hollow

somewhere
"sorry" was not a stock footage phrase
doing things
well- expected commonplace
some do dare
to stand behind their names
they know when they’re right
and they know when to change.

I miss personality
Flaws frank and flawlessly
I miss people who aren’t brochures
for their faith or political party.
Who independently research
before they protest or acquiesce

Sometimes “tactful”’s
just a synonym for “asshole”.
Sometimes “tactful”’s
just a synonym for “asshole”.

The responsible party’s never a person
When something goes wrong, the answer’s redundant
Society, media, drugs and government
Something so big it can’t be punished.

somewhere
"sorry" was not a stock footage phrase
doing things
well- expected commonplace
some do dare
to stand behind their names
they know when they’re right
and they know when to change.

White Picket Fence World

the toilet swirled
and I woke up in this white picket fence world

all supersized, ritzified
franchised buffets for the brave
a.k.a.
the nuclear family

Baby's first cries.
the denizens on fat burning pills
the people as real as the feel o' buttock tucks, botox, and curls

soccer moms sportin' pearls
they constantly cluck , chit chat, brag about brats
fathers possess, assess their kid’s performance
it doesn't make sense. You mean PTA ain't public television access?
yes, the assimilation begins in school

the toilet swirled
and I woke up in this white picket fence world

stuck

ice cream is a temporal matter

got cops for the crew, cops for the crowd
but no cops came to cut me down

sadder, lost the ladder
stuck on the roof
madder, doesn't matter
cuz only ones who've
believed me, tried to retrieve me
but the ladder broke
and so did the tree
small, raw, wa-
tered by acid rain, pain, coke
so, look
Look
it's the paparazzi
swervin, servin up
fresh new celebrity
final sale, ya'll betta hurry,
buy one get one free!

oh, shit! gotta go pee
but i can't go freely
up here everyone'll see me
not that thatta matter, but uh
down there's forty camera shutters

Vellesway, The Caffeine Neutralizer ® :)

I’m flippin’ burgers to make ends meet
Every day I get a facial in grease.
This afternoon
I’m
Fired
from a fast food establishment.
Aside from the embarrassment,
No tuition means
No graduation.
I wish I could fight this system
that paralyzed my potential
but no one’s willing to fight for hope.
We acquiesce to standardized goals.

I can’t win, but can find a weakness
I’ll find a leak- now here’s my thesis:
To make a chemical to neutralize caffeine, the fuel for this society.
I’ll give it the name
Vellesway
the will to cessate
yell that name
Vellesway!

Vallaswayh

4 counts 4X fanfare
who knew for this substance you'll
be pulled from your financial
so fast you got no chance to
even miss that B.S. in Chem, dude
and now your ass serves food
A hat that's a golden halo
doncha want your own?

2X cabaret
just sportin' a golden halo
Vallaswayh
as the days go by
minds electrofried

4x waltz (days of life going by; singsongy daydream with foreboding undercurrent)
piano=melody when vocals start
my golden halo's everyday now
but Sup' says I should be grateful
I took two interviews for real
just to sport this golden halo
doncha want your own?

original LH=2X LH+RH=8X chords=2X TOTAL=12X
lacked 'nuf g's behind me for that B.S. Chem degree
lookin back- a recollection
called first- in my generation
to attempt- graduation
to get a B.S.; just don't mention
the province of Canton
where my great grandpa
speaking (cantonese)
earned a degree in law
scratched up some postcards to my old counselors:
fuck y'all
can't stop tryings and started reapplyings this science to even out the score.

Vallaswayh
Small, round , grey

2X
a suspension of attention
relieving anal retention
D major

2X
a nationwide drop in school attendance
a few reports of I.Q. ascendance
e to D
but most just enjoyed less Ritalin dependence

The Vallaswayh way sung e
a caffeine blocker spoken
economy stopper
As American as apple pie n' nitrous oxide sung e to D

new rhythm- Joey
Fell asleep in my kitchen. Mah coffee never kicked in.
Work started at seven and now it's eleven
should I head in?
Right..........(from Office Space)(Helen or Joey?)
I'm catchin' some reruns
old Batman & Robin
my 1040's gone sortie
greetin' the recycle bin

4 counts- Transition 18X quiet
My, my, my
why, the thangs you find
on adrenaline overtime
from my malig mind into your custom-made mine
please meet the defeat of Wall Street
by a sweet substitution (very discreet)
in condiment distribution
a culinary contribution to the American cause
for a dream embossed
now
introducing the new special sauce
a caffeine blocker, headache stopper
welcome to the year of the pause [instrumentals pause on year]
a caffeine blocker, headache stopper
welcome to the year of the pause
4X waltz
Vallaswayh
Small, round , grey
a suspension of tension
dropping pretension
a prevention of dents

they learned to chill
just like this) RIT @ end

4X circus
Come on!
hop off the commute in those Camo Kangols/ sandals
drop the lawsuits- quick grab a mango
a fruit grenade to desecrate the replay
of syndicated realitay

and mock them recruits in Armani suits
matchin' Lexus coups
quick! shoot, shoot! (gunshots)
stop!-mop up that free puke ass soup
don't pass to the "poor" what you "abhor"

with your crossed silvar forks for removin' your warts
behind barred doors [slow]
fuckin' quit wit the whores
find your wife's clit

and while you're at it [fast]
drop those IMF tariffs
I’ll give ya a tip
and promise to stop sifting through incomplete riffs [slow]

Saturday Nite Special

A Saturday Nite Special doesn't come free
A first rate confessional doesn't absolve
A Saturday Nite date's your new enemy
A guarantee your fate's proper resolved

Lock's busted
My 'partment's all flooded
I shuddered, shut down
what's that sound?
Dripping
Tears o' a clown's merry red frown that found
the head o' a noun
same as the end
can't depend or defend
descend that descent
rerun that redundant
resent repent's that ain't meant
shed
halogen on an
unfled red bed
a Sealy just floatin', teary and soakin
totin'
my friend waxin'
wet weight; my roommate
all hunched, scrunched in a bunch, defunct

ORPHEUS

Walking, walking, step after step,
and
you can't stop walking
because then
you'll never start
walking again

keep on and on and on...

Falling
inside my eyes
every time i blink

calling
thru the noise
the more i sink

and Not to think
is the way to have peace
whilst crawling

these chains of a soul
drawling me down

In the shower, you can’t tell when you've stopped crying...
or when you've started again...

B 12, G 5, I 16
"Bingo!"

Three heads wishing
yet none was winning

image she smiles
we die awhile

and i keep on...

a melody retching out of my stomach...

D I S S E A S T

Good Mourning.

welcome to my world.

it's like waking up to
rotting food next to you
five inches from your nose
juices soaked through your pillow

welcome to my world.

the matches so cheap
they burn with a speed
that leaves the little match girl
without any dreams

the world counts its blessings
that i was not born
the ruler of a nation with nuclear stations

a war within the mind

the desire of nostalgia
for a nonexistent time
that put human
next to
kind

the desire of nostalgia
for human kind
that put human next to
kind

the matches so cheap
they burn with a speed
that leaves the little match girl
without any dreams
Death is a many splendored thing
Listen to the joys it sings
A prison dismembered leaving no walls
walking out deft, deceiving them all
my late endlast breath a personal
vignette

a flickering piñata
snickers from the porch
never figuring you’ll
escort it to dark
echoing blows
disrobing your sweat
loathing so sincere
you’ll never forget

echoing blows
disrobing your sweat
loathing so sincere
you’ll never forget

what you see on this sheet
it's a disease
I'm
5150
see.

the world counts its blessings
that i was not born
the ruler of a nation with nuclear stations
