It’s time to get up and Start your day right With routine It’s always best to eat healthy Hydrate, need caffeine Focus the mind on your breathing slow And sink into your flow Find that space where you can let get go Quiet tranquil Info low But as you open your eyes Your mind begins to seek All of the interestin’ updates Likes, shares, posts, retweets Suppress the drug of distractions or You’ll trigger the trap door Down the rabbit hole of fake news It’s too tempting Can’t refuse Open my phone and there’s Too Much Input Concentration Too Much Input Left the station Too Much Input Overflowing Too Much Input Endless Knowing Too Much Input Mind exploding Too Much Input but Time keeps going Sucked into the content vortex Screwing your prefrontal cortex Saturated with big data Human minds becoming betas Machine learning overturning our Lives and it is disconcerting What the future holds is changing ‘Round the clock it’s constant racing Frantic searching Overworking Will it ever stop? In through the nostrils unplug from stimulation ports Tune into reality and find your inner force This daily cycle repeats and if you’re conscious of its wrath Steady progress is the best path Slowly flush out binging crap But I still want that sweet Dopamine rush through my bloodstream Videos where cats eat ice cream Dead inside but cute and fluffy Likes and loves make real life fuzzy Sponsored ads and excess hashtags Memes and Gifs are all capricious fads Stored inside and endless network Stealing your mind for its net-worth Synergy has lots of beauty Saving time and getting booty but All the big guns are abusing so much Power over helpless humans Analytics algorithms Mush your brain into a schism Cloud computing spying snooping What can all this mean? Too much input overloading Stolen by the corporate probing Too much input keeps imposing Cut the cord erase the coding Too much input ill exposing Pull out from all your band width gloating Need my fix of screen time choking Sports highlights and mammal moanings Emojis won’t stop corroding No real lol’s when online joking Limits to our brain’s encoding cuz Minds need time and space reloading Stop scratching that phone itch Flip off the power switch Outside there is fresh air Off your screen’s aware It’s time to turn on that airplane mode nap rid your mind From all the info shoved down your retinas while online You gotta stay optimistic and refused to be perturbed Altruistic but don’t disturb Stay creative feel superb

You are what you eat Hangry habits on daily repeat What do I choose Or refuse? No magic diet Stops my primal famished defiance You are what you eat so I need a balance if I’m gunna be complete You are what you eat Cheese puff pizza bites and taco meat Passing straight through Putrid poo Battle of my bulge Facing off with life’s need to indulge You are what you eat so I need a balance if I’m gunna be complete Feeling crappy I can eat more healthy ‘casue when the balance is gone Bodies know what is wrong Instead of take-out for one Go for a grocery run Veggies plant-based diets Ginger, soy sauce, garlic Fruit is so tasty It’s nature real candy You are what you eat Hangry habits on daily repeat What do I choose? Or refuse No magic diet Stops my primal famished defiance You are what you eat so I need a balance if I’m gunna be complete Feeling crappy I can eat more healthy ‘casue when the balance is gone Bodies know what is wrong Instead of take-out for one Go for a grocery run Veggies plant-based diets Ginger, soy sauce, garlic Fruit is so tasty It’s nature real candy When its late and you’re fiending for the snacks and treats There’s a tempting bliss point between the savory and the sweet Will power low Cravings grow while your stomach’s Rumbling below but just remember We make mistakes and Balance is what it takes Balance between carbs and protein Veggies and fruits come from your roots Added processed leave you obsessed Care for your own microbiome ‘cause You are what you eat Hangry habits on daily repeat What should you choose? Or refuse No magic diet Stops back primal famished defiance You are what you eat so I need a balance if I’m gunna be complete

New Sponge 03:15
My heap of dirty dishes Steals away time from bigger wishes Must clean without a machine But my sponge, is grunge So I bought a new sponge Time to do dishes Trash the old one Filled with food pieces Greasy, gooey, gunk grime Let it soak overtime Scrub hard till it’s spotless Burnt bits and dried sauces Home cooked, tastes stupendous But breeds filth that’s endless Just when the sink’s clear we Host a dinner party Be mindful of roommates Wash dry all your used plates Dishes are like girlfriends Don’t let others do them Fill sinks with warm water Help save earth and dollars Tidy kitchen tops rule When you use the right tools Bought a new sponge Time to do dishes Trash the old one Filled with food pieces With so many gross tasks How will my new sponge last? Wring out all the moisture So dank mold can’t mature Always nagged to stay neat Mindless work needs fat beats Little tastes of success Progress you through life’s stress New Sponge Must clean without a machine No more grunge, new sponge My heap of dirty dishes Steals away time from bigger wishes

Laundry 03:15
Used up all my clean clothes Avoiding laundry day piling up big loads Lights, darks, packed in quick spin I’ll never see to the bottom of my bin Toss in detergent hold start to lock in Your splendid odors and soiled linen Who knew that going in circles would give Great excuses for being productive Only way my bed gets sheeted Is when underwear’s depleted How long can this last pair survive Need to exercise so now I’ve Used up all my clean clothes Avoiding laundry day piling up big loads Lights, darks, packed in quick spin I’ll never see to the bottom of my bin Sweaty pit stains mixed with grass and dirt smears Losing more socks to the dyer each year Throw in a wash and get glued to a screen Come tomorrow it smells ripe and musty Wave goodbye to electronics Left with tissues in your pockets Wishing I was wrinkle free and Shrinking sizes like laundry Used up all my clean clothes Avoiding laundry day piling up big loads Lights, darks, packed in quick spin I’ll never see to the bottom of my bin

Tax Time 03:24
Once every year Feds reappear Wads of your stash Gone in a flash April is here You must adhere Time to pay up Uncle Sam’s cup Tax time’s here 30% Straight down the drain For guns so our fears stay tame While education’s Cut like deforestation Audited Shoot Tax time’s here all your hard work Cut ‘cause the feds Need your social date of birth Scrounging for write-offs But my budgets is so off Audited America is the greatest Neck deep in everyone’s business Incarcerate invented threats Collect confidence from their debts Tax time’s here empty your socks Cough up an arm and leg Meanwhile bonus stocks Trade rich for reason With treason each spring season Audited America is truly king High scores in fatness and shootings Medicarelesness guaranteed As long as 1% agreed Tax time’s here 30% Straight down the drain For guns so our fears stay tame While education’s Cut like deforestation Audited Once every year Feds reappear Wads of your stash Gone in a flash April is here You must adhere Time to pay up Uncle Sam’s cup

Road Trip 02:42
I gotta get out of this place And see the world face to face Time for a change switch lanes Each slow down drives me more insane But when we travel near and far We piece together who we are Pack the car time to take a ride Coast to coast don’t wait just drive We wanna see the sights Travel all day and night Following pure instinct Don’t overthink Just roll towards What feels right Cuz taking risks Brings new life It’s a long road trip You will veer and drift But just keep your grip 10 and 2 Sleeping at Walmart in the truck lot Passing the time with secret dark thoughts Taking the freeway isn’t easy B.O. and speed bumps got me queasy for some air Sing to the back seat-belt the lyrics Classics and oldies, all the best hits Head-banging road rage, honk the car horn I can’t remember when I wasn’t seeing corn Time for snacks at the mini mart All this crap will stop my heart Gotta fill up the tank With the best food and drank Turn off your GPS And take a guess Just roll towards What feels right Cuz taking risks Brings new life It’s a long road trip You will veer and drift But just keep your grip 10 and 2 Missing my home Is this the right turn? Lost and alone Travel and learn Getting close to the final stop Cityscapes with lights and shops Never forget the fields Teaching us our ideals Keep it in your top gear And drive by fear Just roll towards What feels right Cuz taking risks Brings new life It’s a long road trip You will veer and drift But just keep your grip 10 and 2

Shit Storm 02:27
Shit storm has finally arrived But do you have what it takes to survive Bombarded when life attacks Gotta drudge through the shit storm and begin to take back Control or it will suck your soul Rear ended Warning lights Flat tire Cancelled flight Interest loans Hidden fees Foreclosure Account freeze Family lost Heart broken Backstabbed by Your best friend High fever ER bill Will life stand still? Searching for a moment’s peace and quiet Between all the chaos and the misfortune Shit storms will come back soon Doesn’t matter how you try and prepare Money time and power won’t make you immune When Shit storm has finally arrived But do you have what it takes to survive Bombarded when life attacks Gotta drudge through the shit storm and begin to take back Control or it will suck your soul Power’s out Rent increase Plumbing clogged Binding lease Arctic gusts Flash flooding Forest fires Hurricanes Pickpocket Phone stolen Assaulted Bones broken Hive breakout Runs and chills Will life stand still?

Stuck 02:06
Stuck Frozen in fear Directionless No-one and nothing near Wondering Worrying Wandering Pondering Vacillate Aggravate Procrastinate Exacerbate When you don’t know which path to take Realize there’s no mistakes Break down your pains Digest the strains Because adversity will always remain

Shit I’m so late for my day job No time to eat I just gotta get up and go Sit in my grey box And open all the pointless mass emails to my inbox Bored to death staring at unchanging clocks Large meetings waste everyone’s time And payroll complications force my cards to decline There’s no benefits To losing all autonomy over your calendar Crunching someone else’s crude numbers Complacent comfort under Corporate Cortisol It’s finally lunch break my favorite part of the day I get to eat The same bland tupperware meal that I prepped for the whole week Headphones in people out don’t care about your new baby Thirty minutes is up not even time to (pee) Peaking to get you out of bed Cortisol drops as the day goes by till your dead Its found in your spit And spikes whenever deadlines creep up making you submit To overtime and lack of leadership Fantasies thinking you could quit But golden handcuffs and your pension never permit Strapped in for the ride Of having not one bit of your college degree applied Trainings and protocols to comply Complacent comfort under Corporate Cortisol Our instincts take unhappiness over uncertainty life’s easier With a fat paycheck to boost ego and gloss over fear Covering up all creative clues for your true passion Fixed on your boss’s one way street with no traction Sit down and take Your daily dose of micromanagement from higher ups Discrimination and mansplaining needs to interrupt Dismantle teamwork cuz hierarchy is way more fun Climbing social ladders till you realize your Done with your duties for the day Close up your spreadsheets file folders away Escape I get to sit in traffic alone all the way home But there’s my phone

Oxytosins 03:19
At the end of the day Come on over babe and we can lie so tenderly (so tenderly) It's been too long since I had someone next to me (someone next to me) Our arms getting lower and lower girl Oo oo oo oo Slow it down for me Oxcytosins felt skin to skin Oxcytosins pure emotion Oxcytosins life’s measured in Oxcytosins Oxcytosins Been waiting for your arms to wrap me tight (we reunite) Let’s release the stress of long days in our bed tonight (by candle light) Got your wrapped around my finger and I won’t let go (give you control) Wanna show you how I feel because our love has just begun to flow Oxcytosins where have you been Oxcytosins ditch the lotion Oxcytosins dry spell broken Oxcytosins ox cy Oxcytosins felt skin to skin Oxcytosins pure emotion Oxcytosins life’s measured (your life’s measured in) Oxcytosins ox cy Time for the love makin Pulsing parts channel the surreal As we share the venereal Vibrate space-time dilate pupils Vulnerable visceral thrills Coitus cuts the conscious control From cortex orbitofrontal Energies in utmost respect Till medullas flex

Leap 01:23
I wonder when I’ll take the leap To quit this job and pick up frozen feet When days go past, but nothing lasts Am I lost or am I human needing something new to contrast? We need to love what isn’t known When comfort zones are keeping us alone If you’re in deep, can’t fall asleep Take a chance and leap I wonder when I’ll take the leap To quit this job and pick up frozen feet When days go past, but nothing lasts Am I lost or am I human needing something new to contrast? A leap towards the other side Brings confidence to lengthen out your stride To shake things up and break the slump Just jump

Redemption 06:14
Gotta go back Need to fix it or ill Be buggin for a while Regret it hate myself until I Relieve this feeling inside Get out of bed and put some pants on Before this moment is gone Don’t want to but I have to do it Can't hesitate to prove it With holes unfulfilled Frustration starts to build Putting pain and fear of failure far behind There is only one way to extinguish irking rage Take aim, and engage It’s time to taste redemption You’re in it for the long haul Set backs, slow downs, stand stills, and shortfalls Will slap you in the face and blockade like a brick wall Stand tall Push A little bit closer take one step at a time with True Grit Bad luck, Beat downs, bummers and bull shit Will strike whenever you and your mind least expect it Don’t quit Searching incessantly to find the answers to the right questions Going with your gut and knowing you will find redemption Time to align Your body and mind You’ve journeyed so far Show them who you are Jump Jump Jump Jump Jump Jump… And now with a taste Redemption has you laced With a longing running circles ‘round your mind Only to return Thirsty for more with aching burns Rebound and reveal, what you can truly achieve And Believe Redemption Redemption Move with direction Redemption Redemption Make no exceptions Redemption Redemption Struck with obsession Redemption Redemption Feel the ascension
