Track Name: Six Foot Soul pt. I
This is just a story of the kind of glory
That can belong to a free man
Of the road less travelled
Where every day’s a battle
And any way takes all that he can
No one knows his secrets
Not one would believe it
If they could see or just understand
A man without a purpose except for what his worth is
And music is a voice to his hands
He travels the land, a traveling man
With dirt on his hands, this traveling man
Track Name: Come Out Into The Light
I came out here to get paid
And I want minimum wage
The street corner is my stage
Concrete blocks are the page
And I’m the pen
I salt and pepper my days
Hoping that I don’t waste time
Working hard to replace
A 9 to 5 with a 5 to 9
I gotta come out into the light
It’s such a beautiful thing
When you give all that you bring up for
A life of love and you sing
The beauty of your own human being
You got to come out into the light
I tuck the future away
Inside a pocket of faith
Take my wisdom as pay
I know that I’ll find a way
To survive
If I can come out into the light…
Track Name: Caught Up
(you’ll never know the answer, until you know the question)

I’m sitting watching reasons
Why we’re living
Why the birds and bees
And why there’s no beginning to it all
When man came from a crawl
Today I relive everything we’re given
From other halves to strangers
Caught up in the rhythm of it all
But aren’t we all so small
After all…
Why are we caught up in mysteries
Why are we caught up in love
Why are we living in history
Why are we looking above
It’s something within us
So why do we get caught up at all
I wish that I could see this every moment
That this love affair would be there
In the morning with the dawn
To stop me when I yawn
So as I feel this vision slowly slipping
I try to write it down
From the beginning of it all
But I cannot recall, after all…
Why are we caught up in mysteries
Why are we caught up in love
Why are we living in history
Why are we looking above
It’s something within us
So why do we get caught up at all
Sad it’s the love
Why are we caught up in mysteries
Why are we caught up in love
Why are we living in history
Why are we looking above
It’s something within us
So why do we get caught up at all

(everybody wants to know about happiness, but they’ve got it right in the middle of their heart and they don’t know it)
Track Name: Don't Sweat It
Don’t you sweat what happens down the line
The past is gone away
It’s lessons are in you babe
And here right now you know
What is upon you
Don’t you sweat what happens down the line
Don’t think of all the money you’ll make
Or the hearts you’ll have to break
It’s your choice to mistake
What are you proud of
Don’t you sweat what happens down the line
Please listen
Where have you been
I know you want to start
From the beginning again
It’s in every moment
Please listen…
The future is a whim
Your decisions are making it
And here right now it is
The only answer
What are you waiting for?
Please listen…

(what about the future?
to hell with it, it’s nothing to worry about)
Track Name: Mirage
(so you’re stuck with me
Forever
Period
There’s no way around it
‘Cause I don’t care how much it hurts
Or how much pain I go through
I’m still gonna survive this
‘Cause I ain’t gonna leave this planet without my friend
And I’m not gonna leave him without me
So there it is
I love you)
Track Name: Never There
On the roads of life there are setbacks
When the feeling’s right you forget that
And I know that you’re so tired and alone (me too)
But just look at how much you’ve grown

Soon you’re gonna be back on the top again
And having it your way
Up in the air
And everything you thought you knew
Is gonna start fading away
‘Cause you’re never there…

In the middle life there is no living
It’s the pain we fight that is the beginning
Of so much joy

Soon you’re gonna be back on the top again
And having it your way
Up in the air
And everything you thought you knew
Is gonna start fading away
‘Cause you’re never there…

It’s in this moment that we rise
In this moment that we are alive
In this moment that you find
Everything and nothing
At the same time

Soon you’ll fall to your knees again
Then rise up higher than you’ve ever been

To the flow of life I will listen
For gravity when it is given to me

And I know if I just let go
I will live it
‘Cause you’re never there
Until you forget it

Forget it now…

(If you’ve got any brains at all you’ll live, you’ll learn
Do you know what you’re talking about?
Just day by day you’ll learn wisdom
Damn right
Getting the job done
Yes…)
Track Name: Eventually
Yes it is the season
Where the leaves do have a reason
To be falling down
Gravity will seize them
And convince them to believe in
A common ground
Oh I fantasize
About the changing of the tides
And all the possibilities
The leaves are butterflies
Floating on the windy skies
And they all are free

Eventually there’s no better way around it
You’ve got to let go and be brave
Roll on up your sleeves
And be one with the leaves
For a day

Yes it is the season to be all that you believe in
‘Cause you’re better off that way
Let go of the past
Take the future off your back
And go where you may

Eventually there’s no better way around it
You’ve got to let go and be brave
Roll on up your sleeves
And fall onto your knees
And pray

Eventually there’s no better way
You’ve got to leave before you come home to stay
Oh eventually there’s no better way
To move on

You’re going away…
Track Name: Six Foot Soul pt. II
Every day he sleeps in
Eats what he can eat and
Hits the streets
For dollars and sense
Posted on the corner
Folks think he’s a goner
But he ain’t runnin’ short
On no rent
All the time he’s playing
Everything is changing
‘Cause he can’t keep his mind
In no pen
Sings the songs of joy and
Smiles just like a boy when
His music’s makin’
All of his ends
He wanders the streets
With a traveler’s peace
He wonders in sleep
How the river runs deep
Track Name: Captain Finger
(Hahaha I really like you’re shoes
It’s fingerlicious)

The lone finger long in hand
Living off the fruit of the land
Asking Buddha to gank a chicken
For the soul
Met him years ago and ever since
We’ve become the best of friends
Sharing coffee or a cigarette
On the porch

A hard headed, clever man
At the heart of the situation
Staring starward from the river bed
As he floats down
At the helm on the boat with the band
That’s why they call him the captain
Pointing forward to the road again
‘Cause he knows where it goes

Headed out to sea alone
On his last legs, in his last home
Smoking tobacco that he rolled
Or a new pack of Old Gold
Pointing forward, looking on

Mister lone finger man
Captain man

(Finger loves you)
Track Name: Out To Sea
They won't find me in the water

(Christopher
The music has moved outside
I’m getting furious
I’m coming over there if this doesn’t stop
The party is over)
Track Name: Temptation
Dancing with the devil
In the sky at nine
Wanting to experience
All the pleasures
Of desire

The colors of the sunset
Lead me into regret

Temptation is all I see
Around me

Dancing with the devil
In the sky at 9
Wanting to escape
All of God’s design

The fire burns so bright
On the inside

Temptation is all I see
Around me
Temptation is all I see
In misery

Dancing with the devil
In disguise as a girl
Wanting to undress her
Let her hair unfurl
Creamy buttery skin
I want to kiss it
And own her with my love
Give her all that I got
Don’t think it over
Help me

Temptation is all I see
Around me
Temptation is all I see
In misery

(Be careful, be careful with temptation
‘Cause it can mislead you)
Track Name: Medicine For The People
(I think that was me dying)
Track Name: No Right
I’ve started losing faith
In the modern man
All that he sees is all
He understands
Or even worse yet
He’s completely blind
And what he calls faith
Is his weakness in disguise
Always on the look out
For what he got, got, got
Never give a lick
About those who have not
Living for the vow
Of a better now
But he’s coming of age
And he’s looking around

Bring back all my light
That you took without no right

Grew up as a young child
With a smile
Learned about love
Learned about hate
Learned through his trials
Set his sights so far he could se
The gold tower lines
At the end of the sea
But he’s been lost in the middle
Singing…

Bring back all my light
That you took without no right

No right…

Saw him downtown in a suit
Just yesterday
He rocks that pinstripe
Causin’ all of this hype
At an office in LA
Got himself an entourage
Of the people that don’t have no cause
They’re just a mirage
A mirage…
Singing….

Bring back all my light
That you took without no right

(You got to make a change)
Track Name: Twilight
(Hello

And I thought to myself
It’s a strange thing to have given ones life over
And to find
Life given right back

Worth is life)
Track Name: Six Foot Soul pt. III
No one left to call on
Nowhere left to call home
His strength of will is fading away
But even when he doubts it
He feels that he’s surrounded
By signs that say that this is the way
All his clothes are tattered
But that don’t really matter
His dignity will always be deep
And even though he shouts it
He’s always been about it
This man will never part with the street

He lives for today
With no debt to pay
He’s sees his own way
In the journeys that say
Track Name: The Fog w/ Lynx
The fog rolled in
Over the hills
And into sin
Through the veil
I can hear them crying
The valley bends
Follows the river
Deep within
To the heart of the city
Where everything is dying

Save my soul
And carry me home
Take me down
To the water

Crowds running
Buildings are crumbling
To the pavement
Dance and turn to dust
An old man sits
Clenching both his fists
In the one he holds
The seeds of my destruction
In the other
My only saving grace

Save my soul
And carry me home
Take me down
To the water

Patience…

The water drips through the stone

Save my soul
And carry me home
Take me down
Save my soul
And carry me home
Take me down
To the water
Track Name: Broken City
(From a long line of men
Sacrifice
Conviction
Character
Worth means destiny, courage, and bravery to me
It is the name of my ancestor
Who died saving a downed whaler ship
In Nantucket island in the late 18th century)
Track Name: The River Mystic
Such as the river
Such is life
Flowing down the hill
Into the sky
Out to sea
Travelling wherever
This world takes me

How now
I am a cloud
Soon to
Be coming down
To the river

Back to life
Following the gravity
To light

Oh moon
I’m coming home soon
Back to
The warmth of your womb

Through the river
The current holds me close
So I can’t fight

Daylight
Sun shining bright
Bringing
Me back to life

To the river
Through the river
Flowing down the hill into the sky

(rebirth…)
Track Name: Rain Cover
Boy I came on out
To see the show
Showed up late
Played the part of the song
That I did not know
So I could relate
What I need and I got
After all this time of my life
Is to sit down and rest
Without falling
Falling behind

Boy I came on out to catch a ride
Showed up late
All the rest of my classmates
Got to go inside
I had to wait
At the gate in the front
With the teller
Talking ‘bout life
All the patterns we see
And the purpose
Of being so blind

Need a rain cover in my mind

Boy I came on out
To set it right
Save tonight
Turned my back on the path
That I knew was right
Denied my insight
What I feel is a maze
And I’m crazy
Most all of the time
Rushing in, falling back
Am I lazy
Or am I living my life

Need a rain cover in my mind

And the rain pouring down in my mind
Fills me up inside
Drowning out all the pain
All the lies
Killing off my pride
If I just follow the feelings
Let them be wrong
Let them be right
I will know in time
If I just follow the feeling
Inside

Need a rain cover in my mind
Track Name: Space Bar
(As long as you have created a situation in your life
That causes sadness
You deserve it
Damn it, shit
You deserve it like hell
And you know it
Sadness
Healthy
Sadness is healthy?
Absolutely
Sorrow and regret within your heart
It’s making me blue, really blue
Let it be until it comes upon you
And then face the mustard
Yes, yes, yes, shhh…

What drives you to defy all odds
What makes you jump off of that cliff
Into that infinite abyss
That scares the life out of you

What the hell’s going on?
Worth is dead
You’re growing up

Let me tell you something you already know
The world today just doesn’t understand
The modern man taking a stand
For something he can no longer comprehend
So I invite you all to think about your lives
Unobstructed by the lies
And filter the poison they are spooning
While the masses contribute by mindlessly consuming
Take self eulogy, it’s proof you see
Proof of simple living
Simplicity in a complex serendipity
Informing us to conform us
But we’re all born to be broken
Journeys and pathways of self worth unspoken
So take solitude and sit with it
For there is no one else who can accomplish this
This is it: you and you alone
Just a few parts that make up the whole
Self worth is measured by your six foot soul

It survives you…

When I’ve given up all that doesn’t matter
All the rest is gone
What remains
What still has value

Continually giving yourself to the world and those around you
So much so that when you are spent
The universe will fill you up again

In the solitary caverns
Of a clear and focused mind
Lies the power of transformation

I don’t think it’s a secret at all
Just enjoy it
Be here now
Don’t lose faith
You’re destiny is greater than you think it is
At the end there’s nothing but you)
Track Name: Mirrors
(Worth
You’re worth
Integrity
Every being on the planet
Has intrinsic worth
Every generation
Makes the universe turn
Deserves our respect
Worth is my choice
Action, value
To invest myself
My relationships with people
How much soul, essence
You allow yourself to grow
Worth speaks my priorities honestly
Who I am matters
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
Worth is who I am beyond the mirror
Sacrifice
In this moment
Sanity
Endurance
Spirit
It’s not easy
Perfect
And ultimate dignity
Triumph
What you are
And lasting memory
Value
What I project on every single person
Worth is power
Immortal
It is where I am going
All the best for you
It is the hardships that I have struggled
And overcome
What, honestly, worth means to us
Whatever it is
Pulls in a deeper question inside of us
Worth is us
Evolving every day towards something greater
What you do for other people
Being good for something
The end of a long road and why you started in the first place
It’s how I affect the people around me in a positive way
We get sucked into patterns of defining our worth
Money
By our possessions
The real measure of one’s worth comes from within
Making room in my heart
Character
For the colors of the universe
It’s something that you’re working for
Waking up every single morning
What’s it worth
And doing the one thing
What’s it worth
That genuinely makes you happy
Worth every minute, worth every second
It’s what you believe
Living to the fullest extent
Believe in ourselves
Something special, rare
Our own self worth
Self worth makes this life worthwhile
Is art worth something?
Is music worth something?
So worth the attention
To be worth is art
Make an impact
What you depend on
The love
A family that I can trust and rely on
Brothers and sisters
Every person
Love for those people - that’s worth
And love for myself
The community
Compassion
Worth so much
The heart
It’s disappearing
Worth is the ripple we send into the world
Love
The culmination of my life
It’s worth it
I want to give you some love
I love you
Lots of love
A lot
I wanted you to know
We are able to change the world
You are worth
That’s it
There you have it
You are wonderful
Thank you worth
Keep doing what you’re doing
See you in the future
Ciao
Goodbye)
Track Name: Music
I remember days kickin’ it on the street
Had a bit of soul so I was rockin’ a beat
Just for my people
Or some old hip hop was on
A little bit of one of my favorite songs
It was so good to be to
Scratch that and I’m coming back
Hit the beat like a heart attack
On the redo
Tell my mom and dad step back
Watch me kick this music act
Like I do

They say son
You never know
When you get old
Your regrets are gonna grow

I got music on my own
Does it mean I’m alone

Weekdays from twelve to six
Catch me on Broadway or fifth
Got a red box right there
With a cardboard sign
That says Now Is All You Have
With my man Phil Bondy
Kickin’ on the buckets
And he’s next to me
Hit the block for an hour straight
Hop two down to Pioneer Place
Stack another forty bucks
Push it on the weekend
So we pay the rent up
Playin’ on the street to get paid
Each and every week of the day

This man walks up
And says boy
You never know
When you get old
Your regrets are gonna grow

I got music on my own
Does it mean I’m alone

I’m alone…

I got friends, folks
Life’s no joke
I make it as I follow my heart
I got these people looking at me
While I’m playing on the street
So freely

I got music on my own
Does it mean I’m alone
Track Name: Now
(You’re not going to find out what the mystery of life is
Life is not a mystery
To love people
To love each other
Be good to each other
I don’t even know the question
Let alone the answer
I’d like to see our family be put back together
Something positive towards saving the world
You ever thought that through

Christopher
What the hell’s going on next door?
It’s midnight, it’s 11:44
And I’ll the sudden I’m hearing drumming
And if I can hear it I know the Johnsons can hear it
I don’t know what you’re negotiating with people on
But this is just not gonna happen
I mean it’s not gonna work for me)
Track Name: Silence
(there is nothing so profound
as the silence that surrounds my words
did you catch the silence?
now...
now...
wait not now
now...
no just before now
where's the silence?
now...
where's the silence?
always apply the notion
gently, gently, gently

la mente te trata de confundir
pero tu corazon siempre te dice la verdad)
