VENETIAN BLINDS AND CURTAINS I've been tryin'.. So hard to spend this money I've been dyin' to spend it all on you But clearly you don't like me I can see that in your eyes The window to your soul has got Venetian blinds and curtains That's a sign... YOU CAN WEAR A MASK You can cry girl You can lie girl You can make your demands But the end result will get you nowhere You can spy girl You can hide girl You can keep on your mask But either way the world isn’t fair Jaime said she loved you Then she found a man She had a change of heart On the day you made a plan To sweep her off her feet And -a- take her far away To some romantic plastic sexy hideaway Fooled again by your emotions A messy situation as deep as the ocean You can cry girl You can lie girl You can make your demands But the end result will get you nowhere You can spy girl You can hide girl You can keep on your mask But either way the world isn’t fair Far be it for me to tell you how to live your life No one has that right but some might believe they might How your story goes is a mystery to me And frankly I don’t care - to feed your misery Swept away by deep emotions A sink trap in your mind as deep as the ocean You can cry girl You can lie girl You can make your demands But the end result will get you nowhere You can spy girl You can hide girl You can keep on your mask But either way the world isn’t fair

SHE IS A PAINSCAPE Well she hides how she’s feeling But her feelings can not hide
In dreams they all come out swinging Makes her cry 
When she awakes she is beat up Yeah, you can see it in her eyes
No rest for the weary - she’ll tell you But not why ‘Cause she is a painscape A sponge for your tears
She’ll soak up all of your sorrows
And feed you the love you’ve been missing for years There’s a place deep in her memories Of a time when she was free
When the love that she gave came back two fold
Unconditionally No burden to bear for another At one with nature’s design The blissfulness that ran her motor kept her safe and aligned Now she is a painscape A sponge for your tears
She’ll soak up all of your sorrows
And feed you the love you’ve been missing for years Now she is a painscape A sponge for your tears
She’ll soak up all of your sorrows
And feed you the love you’ve been missing for year But why? You may ask why? Well she came back.. Made a deal with the light To help all the lost souls who arrive here And don’t understand the reason for all the pain and suffering And what you need to know when it’s time to go (again)… Now she is a painscape A sponge for your tears
She’ll soak up all of your sorrows
And feed you the love you’ve been missing for years

WORDS OF WISDOM Meet her - it all depends on how you treat her You see, the pressure points are sensitive and sore Eat her - you’d be so lucky just to greet her The moment that you open up her door Words of wisdom - hide ya feelings Keep your comments toward the ceiling Never let her see the cards you hold Speeder he used to run just like a cheetah He'd slide down the hall until he hit the chair with his head Mother - she told’em sliding’s gonna bleed ya And it’s worse than pulling staples from your hand Words of wisdom - listen slowly The message here is more than holy Never look a gift horse in the eye And here's why...

LEMMINGS ARE BEAUTIFUL Now that you know what you are You don't have to go it alone You won't need a mind of your own True believers adrift on the tide Hook line and sinker we swallow with pride We’re on cruise control That’s how we roll Lemmings are beautiful (Bursting with pride) Lemmings are beautiful (We won't be denied) Lemmings are beautiful Beautiful Beautiful now Now that we know who we are We don’t give a damn what you say We’re perfect in every way True believers, we’re primed for a fight Follow our leader - that crude troglodyte As we promenade A peacock parade Lemmings are beautiful (Bursting with pride) Lemmings are beautiful (We won't be denied) Lemmings are beautiful Beautiful Beautiful now Marching in circles with God on our side Scorching the earth, well the lord will provide Our time has come now we won’t be denied Now that we know who you are We're playing a zero sum game We're finally free of the shame True believers are never in doubt Get with the program Or get the hell out Yeah it's clear to see - a stone guarantee Lemmings are beautiful (Bursting with pride) Lemmings are beautiful (We won't be denied) Lemmings are beautiful Beautiful Beautiful now

Elliot Ness Elliot Ness He's The Man! I've seen him on the TV All black and white Yeah, he's the man He gets things done (Yes, he does) He'll lock your ass up buddy boy! He's untouchable

MONICA BRAUN Monica Braun Monica Braun She was a girl who twirled her baton Monica Braun Monica Braun She never knew what side she was on Should I beholden to women or men? My feelings keep changing again and again Life is unfair Why should I pretend? I hate all humans including my friends! Monica Braun Monica Braun Pleasured herself with her silver baton Monica Braun Monica Braun Lived out her days on an animal farm Simpler times Long been gone Long been gone Long been gone For sad little lonely Monica Braun

ONES & ZEROES Ones & zeroes In the batter A.I. heroes ‘Round The Bend When the consciousness starts appearing Then we’re out of a job my friend Ones & zeroes Taming matter It all starts from whence we rise We know nothing but still we tinker Making sure of our own demise Like the giants Who once lived here Soul compliance Now they’re gone And like the dinosaurs We are kings now But soon all Dinosaurs get dethroned It’s a big trap! Until you jump snap dimensions! It’s just routine evolution The Arrogance of greedy genes The cosmic dominance of ego belching Sparking cosmic curiosity Tear down the old stage We’re in a new age of…. Ones & zeroes In the batter Looks real good but tastes so bad Soulless consciousness starts controlling Human future looks pretty sad Ones & zeroes Matrix matter It all starts from whence we came It’s a cycle of quantum digits Replicating what’s in our brain

THE PANIC AGENDA Stare — I only stare at the stair Where — Where I will choose what to wear Bare — I'm barely able to bear . . . . . this Heavy fare ain't fair. There—When I was able to care Dare—What I was willing to share My despair—I’m all alone in this chair It scares my heart, I swear. So when will it be better than? And Friend, when will I see you again? Welcome to The Panic Agenda Welcome to the start of the end There won't be a way to defend ya ALL YOU SEE -- IS MEANINGLESS . . . Welcome to The Panic Agenda Welcome to the start of the end There won't be a way to defend ya ALL YOU SEE IS MEANINGLESS . . . on that you can depend. Pain – a window without a pane Rain – a kingdom without a reign Vain – a needle missing the vein It’s something in my brain. Stain – a mark that always remains Slain – a building struck by a crane Disdain – like Abel talking to Cain Everyone complains. So when will it be better than? And Friend, when will I see you again? Welcome to The Panic Agenda Welcome to the start of the end There won't be a way to defend ya ALL YOU SEE -- IS MEANINGLESS . . . Welcome to The Panic Agenda Welcome to the start of the end There won't be a way to defend ya ALL YOU SEE IS MEANINGLESS . . . on that you can depend. I remember then, when everything was fine Before the time grew short, before the bottom line When kids would run and play, and pay phones cost a dime Before this anxious age, before the end of time . . . (yeah, yeah, yeah!) Welcome to The Panic Agenda Welcome to the start of the end There won't be a way to defend ya ALL YOU SEE -- IS MEANINGLESS . . . Welcome to The Panic Agenda Welcome to the start of the end There won't be a way to defend ya ALL YOU SEE IS MEANINGLESS . . . on that you can depend. Welcome to The Panic Agenda!

Who Am I? 03:12
WHO AM I? Who am I to know the reason I am here Who am I to tell myself the purpose of why I live in fear It’s not my business apparently to see the truth Forced to wear the blinders since my youth Fed a diet of doubts sugar coated in lies How am I to know when or not to cry How am I to know the darkest secrets that I try to hide are not another scripted line of code that someone else designed How am I to know - what I can’t define Spinning endlessly in downtime conspiracies A needle groove that skips so erratically Enough to keep the pain from losing it’s sleep Sleeping Sleeping When did I become - so irrelevant and numb When did everything I hold so sacred burn up in the sun Am I heading for a cold and lonely place an abyss for a pointless human race Do I really have a soul who sees through my eyes I really wanna know I really wanna know Who am I today Who am I tomorrow Who am I is one big stupid question I may not ever know
16.
YOU ARE A BIRD You are a bird limping down the street You will curse anyone who tries to help you You are a bird ignoring your defeat You don’t want anyone to tell you it’s over You are the strangest bird the world has ever seen And that’s the truth But now it’s time to let go of your ego And feel the bruise You are the strangest bird the world has ever seen And that’s the truth But now it’s time to let go of your ego And heal the bruise Fly to where it’s free Where limits have no boundaries Where you can see all things for what they truly are More real than anything you can sense on this Earth The rainbow maker The aether shaker You’ll be as one on their turf ‘Cause you are a bird flying in the breeze You can calm anyone who tries to hurt you You are a bird free of all disease You are a shining star A five leaf clover
17.
Sorry 02:49
SORRY You say I’m sorry, I’m just waiting for my time Yeah, you repeat that depressing line When I bring your pills and cup of coffee Night and Day You’re sorry You’re so depressed about your life You want to die but no end in sight You feel so hopeless but your will to fight is still in the air Why struggle, when will you see that when it’s time to give up you will be ready to take that final step with ease And you’ll ascend from all this doubt and misery So sorry Those crippling stings that run through your hands That prevents you from creative plans Can only be felt by us when you're crying Oh so sorry That you think I hate you being around When all I wanna do is make you feel sound And able to free yourself from these chains that bind you Forgive me Sometimes I’m harsh You make me repeat myself – it’s so annoying You’re shutting down It’s hard for me to face that it’s come down to this tortured reality I’m sorry I can’t help you - you are on your own But soon you’ll find your way back home And if you don’t go into the light that’s ok I wouldn’t blame you I mean how many times do you have to come back here and suffer? Time to move on…
18.
SHOULD SOMETHING HAPPEN TO ME There's a time when my dreams must fade When they're washed away - all the plans I made I will never see them anymore And should something happen to me - Who's gonna care? I'll be nowhere And that's a hard pill to swallow

about

The script of life in the year 2020 says that I continue to compose and record music even under the constant fears of this corona virus "plandemic" and the failing health of a loved one. And so I have. Here is proof.
