Track Name: All the Building Blocks
I need to say a few things
that will surely help
the future me and you
you may see me act in ways
that seem strange, I deal with life
in disarray

to let the strife pass on through
I do what I need to do
to umbrella the rain

and if I get on up from
the table and I'm stone-faced
please don't attribute it to you

and if we lie next to each
other and I don't hold you
please don't attribute it to blues

and if that happens soon
pull up this conversation
don't let your mind conclude
to the twisted places your head goes

and if that happens soon
pull up this conversation
don't let your mind conclude
to the twisted places your head goes

all the pieces of me aren't
shiny like wedding stones
lining your insides
I do my best to wipe and
buff scuffs off my own rocks
and polish all the building blocks

and when it all gets old
don’t be afraid to scold
there’s stuff I can control
I just need to be told

and if that happens soon
pull up this conversation
don't let your mind conclude
to the twisted places your head goes
Track Name: Pilot
my thoughts don't change
just ones in need of healing pills
I'm a joke
who I want to be
waits peaceful there
blurry in the distance

and in this pain
that I'm feeling
there's a room
and it's spinnin’
a car won't
suffice tonight
fly pilot you fool
a star ride’s length away
from this

I thought I knew who she was
I thought I knew who she'd become
but I don't and I won't
we haven’t spoken at all
she lay peaceful there
blurry in the distance

and in this pain
that I'm feeling
there's a room
and it's spinnin’
a car won't
suffice tonight
fly pilot you fool
a star ride’s length away
from this

for many days
I thought I knew who she was
in many ways
I thought I knew who she was

and in this pain
that I'm feeling
there's a room
and it's spinnin’
a car won't
suffice tonight
fly pilot you fool
a star ride’s length away
from this
Track Name: As We Age
as we age
our skin crimps
we eat shrimp
pull the tails off
on our day time boats
out in the bay
under the ray
sunglasses on

we kiss our
classy wives
they take sips
lick their lips
in their springtime hats
teeth are so white
the weather's just right
cocktail I just might
then we talk about

rock and roll
new and old friends
children and loans
our jobs and our phones
we droned on way too long
the days we sold to the pawn shop

as we age
our skin crimps
we eat shrimp
pull the tails off
on our day time boats
out at sea
staring back at the beach
sunglasses on

we kiss our
classy wives
they eat shrimp
with lemon juice
in their springtime hats
teeth are so white
the mood is just right
cocktail I just might
then we talk about

rock and roll
new and old friends
children and loans
our jobs and our phones
we droned on way too long
the days we sold to the pawn shop


so many people who should
have grown old with me have
faded from the page

as we age
our skin crimps
we eat shrimp
pull the tails off
on our day time boats
out in the bay
under the ray
sunglasses on

we kiss our
classy wives
they take sips
lick their lips
in their springtime hats
teeth are so white
the light is just right
cocktail I just might
then we talk about

rock and roll
new and old friends
children and loans
our jobs and our phones
we droned on way too long
the days we sold to the pawn shop

so many people who should
have grown old with me have

Track Name: Grandchildren
you like that science stuff
I'm more a feeling man

gills on land
wings on ground
round with squares

at 105
I'll keep you alive
with the things
you don't vibe
with just yet

the antique mug
you drink
life out of
needs to
fall-off-table crack
snap your stance's
handle off
you're singing
the rat pack

they're great but times have changed

you prefer me PC
hard to change when

this how it's been
how it'll be
till I'm complete

the antique mug
you drink
life out of
needs to
fall-off-table crack
snap your stance's
handle off
you're singing
the rat pack

in my raincoat
pockets
filled with picket signs
"PLEASE DON’T INFLUENCE
OUR GRANDCHILDREN"

I know where
you're from and it changes
which words fall
from my mouth
down to you

the antique mug
you drink
life out of
needs to
fall-off-table crack
snap your stance's
handle off
you're singing
the rat pack

in my raincoat
pockets
filled with picket signs
"PLEASE DON’T INFLUENCE
OUR GRANDCHILDREN"
Track Name: Far Away Lands
baby you write good songs
lyrics read thoughtful and strong
good enough to hold a mountain up

remember
if something's wrong
water flooding your blinks
thinking way too much
you can take emotion
and turn it to song
bend negative benevolent
for those in far away lands
that will hear your music

and your smile
they'll hear the
upward curve in your bottom lip
while you sit at the piano
and touch chords
with your love press

remember
if something's wrong
water flooding your blinks
thinking way too much
you can take emotion
and turn it to song
bend negative benevolent
for those in far away lands
that will hear your music

when you are so old
that you won't even know it's your own

and when you sit and play and wonder why you even do this at all

remember
if something's wrong
water flooding your blinks
thinking way too much
you can take emotion
and turn it to song
bend negative benevolent
for those in far away lands
that will hear your music

for everyone around you
and in far away lands that will hear your music

when you are so old
that you won't even know it's your own
