Track Name: Cara
In the middle of a fire fight
Pray your fos go off to sleep.
I am pushing through the dead of night.
with my promises to keep.
Q&A, Talk of the ages, oh my timeless prize.
In this lifetime, or the next one, We can improvise.

Cara, Whats the use of deep connection,
When its always insurrection on your mind.
Cara, whats the use of higher mind,
When your slave to all you can not leave behind.

I'm sure the show has fallen for us.
Stay close and follow my tracks in the ground.
I'm sure you'll always see the Brightside
A refuge from the hallowing sound
Q&A, Talk of the ages, oh my timeless prize.
In this lifetime, or the next one, We can improvise.

Cara, Whats the use of deep connection,
When its always insurrection on your mind.
Cara, whats the use of higher mind,
When your slave to all you can not leave behind.
Track Name: Murder Bunny
Murder Bunny
Written by Roland Ramos

Hello my Feral love, it's been so long since I have found you!
Gave you the best of days, Cleaned your cage, loved you like a scoundrel
Between your bunny hops, your Orange colored carrot tops
Theres something burning just behind your eyes

I've seen that look before, something akin to John Wayne Gacey
And with your little nose, you sniffing opportunities to mame me.
I'ts all a cute charade, I'm hiding all my razor blades
Cause clearly there is murder on your mind.

I love the way you Scare me,
Yes, I love the way you scare me,
When I'm away, I know you're setting traps to kill me.

Well do your worst, My love. You'll never win.
You'll be my murder bunny till the end.

Track Name: Sandys Song
Sandys Song
Written by Roland Ramos

From warmer seas she came
Devistation was her game
No harbor safe from harm.
Where were you shuffling about
When all the city lights went out.
In her arms, I weathered the storm.

Uncovered soft terrain
both the passion and the rain
were a constant theme
And so I stole the race
through Sandys cold embrace
In her arms, I weathered the Storm

Across the subtle seas
She ceases me, caresses me
Keeping those storm clouds away

Before I thought it strange
That storms have female names
Are they soft and sweet?
At first you're blown about
Then you lose your house.
In her arms, I weathered the storm.
In her arms, I weathered the storm .
Track Name: Dear
"Dear"
Written by Roland Ramos.
Tyler Ross Co-wrote a line.

Dear love How you keep the Circle strong
As Hydrogen and the Earth around the sun.

Dear Sand, Tens of Thousands in my hand
And to think that every grain is different.

Dear stone, how you keep the moutain tall
and comprise solid celestial bodies

Dear sea, you are so the same as me
from the womb to the content of my being

Oh, Theres a place inside my mind where all is fine

Dear sky, lording over I&I
Robins egg turns darkened starry blanket

Dear Moon, reflecting all we do
Call the tides as our constant companion

Dear sun, in a billion years you're done
Just a breath, and gone are all the legends

Dear stars, innumerable and far
and each one, a spinning solar family

Oh, Theres a place inside my mind where all is fine.

Dear love How you keep the Circle strong
As Hydrogen and the Earth around the sun.
Track Name: JC Vampyre
Drop your cape, woman
Drop your style
Lucky 7, your favorite domicile
and your coming to sit down and drink

Bat your eyes. Tell me what you are.
I know I've seen you all over around town
If I pay attention, I know you gwan come around
Vampyre

For your to decide Vampyre,
Coming for my energy

My raving beauty, you're addicted to beginnings.
But hen it comes to something substantive, you run.
You're feeding off the energy of passion

Theres a big line between love and affection,
And if you run cause your getting nuff attention
You gotta create, ya gotta build a bridge
For you burn it and run, You're just a love gun vampyre.

With all your beautiful times and eyes, Vampyre
Running from island to island we find that you are vampyre
The Queen of the Night. Sucking on your energy.

JC Vampyre.
Track Name: The Evernow
You see it in the dark of night.
The harmony in natures lines
Then we inject Human pride, and destabilize.
What is it to truly love
Suspend all the urge to judge
Respect someone for who they are, nothing more

We're divine, by design, recognize, its a life worth living.
once around, the evernow!

When you look into these eyes
You'll find yourself with no disguise
Reflections of the human kind, self-realize
So once more friends into the fold,
open up your heart to all
Keep the respect mutual, Love conquors all

We're divine, by design, recognize, its a life worth living.
once around, the evernow!
Track Name: Sturm
Heard so many stories of this nations hallowed wine
Only in the crisp of fall do vineyards reap the vine.

I found my way, a planless plan.
Ventured towards the cities hinterland
Metro to Bus, In God we trust.
A march into unknown is good for us.

Thought upon the thoroughfare where singers brave the chill
Watched as sweet vienna turned into rolling hills

I lost way way along the path. looking at the foothills through the glass
Deepest greens and shades of brown. I watched the trees until the sun went down.

I knew that I would be content to lay among the stars.
Only on a night like this you find out who you are.

I found myself with smiling eyes looking at the lighted countryside
And to the moon, I raised a glass. I took a sip of Sturm and headed back.
I took a sip of Sturm and headed back.
Track Name: Grab a Brush
I gwan express myself the very best I can
with all the colors of the rainbow, and the swiftness of a pen.
I'm gwan express myself, nothing can stop me now.
Be it chinese dutch or latin, it doesn't matter how.

Red sentiments of anger and confusion.
of fillowy clouds for when I'm high
Kayaing the frozen rings of Saturn, pondering Mona Lisa's smile.

Grab a brush, paint your life. The critics all are in your head
Live out loud, the sands of time are fleeting.
It's hard to live life once you're gone.

I'm gwan express myself from ballet to pointalist
using Jackson Pollack style on a Michealangelo
I'm gwan express myself in Salvation army clothes.
Linen by Armani with red shoes from Bozo.

Grey summer days like Van Gough drinking absinthe
Larger than life Like Botero.
Take a dip in Streams of consciousness
I must confess I refuse to regress

Grab a brush, paint your life. The critics all are in your head
Live out loud, the sands of time are fleeting.
It's hard to live life once you're gone.
Track Name: Make a Wager
There goes Maggie on her front porch
And shes olding up a storm
And theres Topher in the Kitchen
Theres a Tur-Duck-en in store

Thats the gallery at the corner, has a concert from 8 to 10
Classic Bhuto, like a penguin from the Japanese Highlands

Make a wager, I'll take it. That a life like this can't fake it.
Watch me elbows and lets High Five
We're all on the same team in life.

Theres a Vegan smoking cigarettes
and my favorite Ju-Bu Mike
He just came in, from Hoboken on his Double Decker Bike
There's the artists with their Kale chips Working so hard to be free
Whats the difference between hipsters and everything you've come to be.

Make a wager, I'll take it. That a life like this can't fake it.
Watch me elbows and lets High Five
We're all on the same team in life.

Met my sweat heart out in Brooklyn. We met Shanghai Mermading
We're so close now to the Hudson, But we're told that we can't go in.
At the Art loft, theres an Ethos. What we think and say are on.
Perhaps we're all temperamental, transparent transients

Make a wager, I'll take it. That a life like this can't fake it.
Watch me elbows and lets High Five
We're all on the same team in life.
Make a wager, I'll take it. That a life like this can't fake it.
Watch me elbows and lets High Five
We're all on the same team in life.
We're all on the same team in life.
Track Name: Queen of the Morning
Cover the Gesso with Pigment and dye
you stepped out of the painting and into my life
Like Dorrians Picture where Hubris Lies
Please step out of the darkness and into the light
Content to contact and more than a friend
I know all the stories and don't give a damn.
Float like a feather, guiding the seas by the stars
Heart wheres your helmet, we're coming in fast.
And she was the queen of the morning.

Always the victim of cause and effect
Step out from the picture and back from the ledge
I'll dig with my hands into soil and ash
To build us a future of music and laughs
Captured your likeness in charcoal and pen
Captured the briefest of moments in sand
Light as a feather, guiding the seas by the stars
Drop all prestenses, deluded with pride
But she was the queen of the morning

I don't want her to leave, and she don't want to go.
But theres blood on the canvas. The futures been sold.
