Packing Heat 05:26
Calm down  Let it build up  Better keep inside  You don’t wanna hide  But you better shut your mouth  Chill out  Take a back seat  Cuz you don’t wanna meet  I’m packing heat on a California street  I ‘m gonna run right through you  I’m packing heat  Never felt so incomplete  I’m gonna head right to you  You’re dead to me  After all that we’ve been through  You lied to me  And still you continue No sympathy for your idiocracy  t’s a blatant catastrophe  I’m packing heat on a California street  I ‘m gonna run right through you  I’m packing heat  Never felt so obsolete  I’m gonna head right to you  Like a time bomb ticking  Ain’t no use predicting  When I’m gonna blow  Like a rocket ship countdown  You don’t wanna be around  When it’s time to go  My weapon’s hot  And I don’t wanna stop  Packing heat  On the California streets

Incomplete incompletion  Obsolete by deletion  Side by side comparison  Warrant my indignation    Ascension and innocence Makes no sense in my defense  Intense self deprecation  Question my destination  Say what you gonna say  I won’t listen anyway  Do what you gotta do  I will never run with you  Know what you wanna know  I don’t have to believe so  Find what’s inside of you  The nightmare of a dream come true  Satisfy my satisfaction  Correct my adaptation Intensely amplify my insolence self confidence  Raging from a voice inside you  Throw what you gotta throw  I will deflect your arrows  Stand where you gonna stand  I will try to understand  Hear what I got to say  You won’t listen anyway  Find what’s inside of you  The nightmare of a dream come true    When the voice inside you corrupts your soul  And the noise besides you wants it all  When your strength is gone and you try to move on  Unstoppable love and obstacles    Speculate by spectacle  Disputes are indisputable  Your pretenses are advanced  By overwhelming circumstance  Words by prejudice have consequences Say what you gonna say  I won’t listen anyway  Do what you gotta do  I will never run with you  Know what you wanna know  I don’t have to believe so  Find what’s inside of you  The nightmare of a dream come true  When the voice inside you corrupts your soul  And the noise besides you wants it all  When your strength is gone and you try to move on  Unstoppable love and obstacles    When the voice inside you corrupts your soul  And the noise besides you wants it all  When your strength is gone and you try to move on  Unstoppable love and obstacles

The back of the bar seems so far  Far away  The stage is bare  The tables and chairs are empty tonight  One microphone and one guitar turned up to five  I’ll sing my song but the game is on  You don’t know I’m alive  Nobody’s listening  The silence is deafening  Nobody’s listening at all  It’s half past ten  I’m at it again  I play to survive  I see the back of your head  I feel like I’m dead and I’m dying inside  Some change in my jar  I’ll sleep in my car  It’s a labor of love  With grace and poise I’m your background noise  But I crave the rush  Nobody’s listening  It’s a rude awakening  Nobody’s listening at all  I’m singing I’m playing every night  When the weekend comes and my money’s gone  You were still there  Someday I’ll be famous and you will have missed it  Because you were talking  Yes you were talking I cuss and fuss The drink is just to make it through  Life on the road I’ve never felt to alone  I’m missing you  I sing from the heart I nail all the parts  You’re deaf dumb and blind  As the patrons walk out I scream and shout  They pay no mind   Nobody’s listening  Is this really happening  Nobody’s listening  At all  Nobody’s listening  Your chatter is overpowering  Nobody’s listening  At all

The Formula 04:17
Simplify for simple minds  Less is more in these times  Music for free is a crime  Open your mind  You’re confined  An earworm and a noose  Set it forth and break loose  Much room to improve  Keeping me hooked on the groove  Stick to the formula  It never fails The formula  Stick to the formula  Your ordinary lives have become king  The words that you speak are hollow  No one can do it solo  Ya just gotta go with the flow  But everyone pays for the show  The camera cries in your face  Everything you do a disgrace  Conquer the world in cyber space  Embarrassing the whole human race  Stick to the formula  It never fails The formula  Stick to the formula  Your ordinary lives have become king  Make a scene for a minute  A million views and you're in it  Tomorrow comes with someone new  A million more to forget you  You’re a star better believe it  A strangers eyes to critique yeah  When haters troll your ego knows  The black empty pit of your soul  Stick to the formula  It never fails The formula  Stick to the formula  Your ordinary lives have become king  Dictate the formula  It always wins The formula  Stand by the formula  Your mediocre lives on the small screen

You’re such a disappointment  Like a fly in the ointment  That’s not what I meant  But you let me down again  You’ve been there all my life  It cuts me like a knife  You caused me lots of strife  Let’s try this one more time  It’s like a brick wall impossible to climb  Constantly reminding me how  I’m wanting something more  I live for something more  I’m wanting something more   I live for something more  You cost me everything  But you taught me how to sing  You give the middle finger one too many times  Been like this all along  Seems like the same old song  I‘m not where I belong  It’s wrong place wrong time It’s like a grand canyon impossible to cross  Constantly reminding me how  I’m wanting something more  I live for something more  I’m wanting something more   I live for something more    It’s like a brick wall impossible to climb  Constantly reminding me how  I’m wanting something more  I live for something more  I’m wanting something more  I live for something more  (stick to the formula)

My Goddess 03:53
I’ve fallen in to you  There’s nothing I can do  When I think I think that I fell for you We drove the slow lane  Where others crash and burn  I'm not afraid  I know what I’ve learned  We come from broken bones  We dodged sticks and stones  We came and saw the Point of Know Return I do believe that you know  How precious time is now we’re alone  My girl  My heart  My Goddess  I’ve jumped the rabbit hole  I’ll go where you go  Watching movies on a Sunday afternoon When things run amuck  You’re absolutely stuck  We know the meaning without having to say a word  And when your dreams get wild I'll be with you every mile It’s all worthwhile when I see your morning smile  I do believe that you know  How precious time is now we’re alone  My girl  My heart  My Goddess I've fallen in to you I do believe that you know   How precious time is now we’re alone   My Goddess I do believe that you know    How precious time is now we’re alone    My girl    My heart    My Goddess I've fallen in to you

From the dawn of day till the end of time  Someone will stab your back  One family or a good ole friend  Or some random stranger maniac  C'mon You’re just the scum of the the earth  Trained to be bad from your birth  You’re just the evil seeders  The bottom feeders  Words can manipulate  Learn to love before it’s too late  These are the cue card readers  The bottom feeders  Wasting all my breath at the breaking point  My blood boils in your name  To live in fear is no way to live  How much more can I explain  You’re just the scum of the the earth  Trained to be bad from your birth  You’re just the evil seeders  The bottom feeders  Words can manipulate  Learn to love before it’s too late  These are the cue card readers  The bottom feeders  You may find an empty threat in you yard or cigarette  Without fail it happens here  Near or far  It’s crystal clear  Looking down there’s shadows cast  Standing tall but in past past  Media manipulate and speculate  You can't escape  You’re just the scum of the the earth  Trained to be bad from your birth  You’re just the evil seeders  The bottom feeders  Words can manipulate  Learn to love before it’s too late  These are the cue card readers  The bottom feeders  You’re just the scum of the the earth   Trained to be bad from your birth   You’re just the evil seeders   The bottom feeders  The bottom feeders

You know how I feel about Mondays  I never get enough rest  It feels like a week full of Sundays  I’d rather stay In my bed  Sleeping is always a nightmare  Cuz sleep is the thing that I dread  I dream about getting up someday  I know that it’s all in my head  What does it take  What does it take  What does it take to get motivation  What does it take  What does it take  What does it take to get motivation  I get nothing done but I have so much to do  I get so much done cuz I have nothing to do  I can’t fall asleep on a weekday  I toss and turn in a rage  Uncomfortably left in a small space  Like being confined in a cage  Yeah  What does it take  What does it take  What does it take to get motivation  What does it take  What does it take  What does it take to get motivation  I get nothing done but I have so much to do  I get so much done cuz I have nothing to do  Back to life and reality  Back to vices and causality  Back to strife and normality  Back to lies and morality  You know how I feel about Mondays  There’s so much potential ahead  But to put it off until tomorrow  I can dream about you instead  What does it take  What does it take  What does it take to get motivation  What does it take   What does it take   What does it take to get motivation  I get nothing done but I have so much to do  I get so much done cuz I have nothing to do

Calibration 05:41
Can you see I’m happily in pain  But you won’t know  I hide it every day  It’s a different situation all around  When I’m headed for the lost and found  I don’t know why there’s no room left to breathe  So hold on tight to all that you receive  It’s the same old nightmare that’s here to stay  It cannot stop when It’s in your way  Calibrate  Reconfigurate  Calibration get your head straight  Reconfiguration carries too much weight  When I’m about to break  Well I’m running  I run to get away  And I’m in the same place I was yesterday  And I’m feeling no one could give a damn  And I’m falling down when I try to stand  How much more or further should I wander  Just to get a bit  Maybe a little bit stronger  I can’t find a place so little believe  Of peace and hope and harmony  Calibrate  Reconfigurate  Calibration get your head straight  Reconfiguration carries too much weight  Calibration get your head straight  Reconfiguration carries too much weight  When I’m about to break  Whoa Yeah!  Uh!

about

This is my 14th solo studio album, not including the re-re-issue of Sentimetal and the Special Edition of Under Sedation, and Lost In Paradise which is now under the band moniker E19. Damn there's some good stuff on here! Probably my new favorite "me" album! Honestly I surprise myself every time I write another great song. I keep thinking Moving Parts was my last great album. This one is definitely up there and worth a listen!
