MAKE TIME FLY

Additional Players:
Drums – Billy Blaze
Percussion – Heath Bennett
Backing Vocals – Elder D

things i remember
coming through from yesterday
it’s real cause i tried to make it great
i know it’s the way that you make me feel
i know it’s the way that you make time fly

things you remember
bringing back them yesterdays
it’s real till you try to get it straight
i know it’s the way that you make me feel
i know it’s the way that you make time fly
i know it’s the way that you make things real
i know it’s in the way that you make time fly

when the annunaki came down from nibru to change this place
giant’s pets were dinosaurs, aliens fucking the apes
with the matrix enslaving our world to pan for silver and for gold
product was created, people mistreated and sold
but then the fight back came right back from the depths of the earth and then the ocean
and the rain came down and the pain that’s round let loose on our emotions
living in this life is like living in the nightmare of a hater
or being stuck in an elevator with a pissed off darth vader
here’s a beat down take a seat down an elite sound’s gonna creep round in this town deep
from long beach to seal beach hear the high rock we don’t compete
everyday i’m in my mind i see what i want to see and do what i want to do
reptilians walk the path they don’t know what the fuck, they don’t have no clue
pleiadeans and angels gonna come into our life and raise the vibrations
every generation comes in smarter, living with less fear
don’t fuck with my glasses
everyday i’m in the game, i’m gonna live and try to deal
you know the way i love my friends and my family and how i feel
it’s all love to you
from us to you baby
from us to you
hey tone (antoine)
make time fly, high alert
it’s a high alert, it’s a high alert
i know it’s the way that you make time fly

COMPENSATION

Additional Players:
Drums – Billy Blaze

you could be happy i know cause i found a way
you could be happy i know if you find a way
you could be happy i hope that you find a way

rocks you steady
your compensation

free minds, bonds built
if you live your life, they always give you guilt
i remember what means the most to me

FINALLY GET IT (JOE STRUMMER)

Additional Players:
Drums – Billy Blaze
Bass – Bill Lanham
Additional Guitar Fills – Elder D

for so long i was fooled like a foolish child
one day i woke up to a wink and smile
and i started to laugh
could i finally get it?

i know that they say it’s adversity
that shapes you into who you’re supposed to be
but i want it so fast
and i can’t forget it
and it’s been going through my mind
will i ever get it?

i know where i was when joe strummer died
he was like a big brother to my mind
and i put on the clash
and i can’t forget it
and it’s been going through my mind
will i ever get it?
and i’ll be waiting for some time
till i finally get it

SHOT DOWN

Additional Players:
Drums – Michael Miley
Additional Rhythm Guitar – Elder D

headed into the truth
pudding’s the proof
like a bird in the sky
i was shot down
i was flying so high

and as i fell back to the ground
i heard that old familiar sound
it hit me deep, just like the bass
and made me scrunch up my own face
and everything is out of control
when you’re shot down

i was leading the pack
now i’m all out of whack
i was crying for help
keep it all to myself

BE CAREFUL OF MY GLASSES

Additional Players:
Guitars – Elder D & Eric Warren

i know that you want me and i want you
to listen to things i’m trying to tell to you
i like when you touch me and even my face
but i’m just trying to warn you
be careful of my glasses
be careful my glasses
my glasses are the windows to my eyes
i wrestle with love but never realize
so tug on my chin or you can pull my hair
but just show that you care
be careful of my glasses
be careful my glasses
my glasses give to me a smart and distinctive look
they often get me off the hook
swept them from my eyes
wanted to see but they fell to the floor
that’s just the thing that i got to say

COULD I BE WRONG?

Additional Players:
Drums, Bass, Moog, & Percussion – Antoine Arvizu

i don’t feel like you do
could i be wrong?
i won’t walk in your shoes
just to belong
could i be wrong?

they say, things never last
could i be wrong?
i won’t live in the past
just to belong
could i be wrong?
could i be wrong, again?

i don’t really mind the places i go
it takes me out of my time
to a whole other place
my own special place

i don’t really mind the places i go
it takes me out of my time
to a whole other place
i don’t really mind
the faces they make
i’m taking my time to go
to a whole other place
my own special place

HALF APE HALF ALIEN

Additional Players:
Drums – Billy Blaze
Bass – Bill Lanham
Additional Rhythm Guitar & Reggae Solo – Elder D
Percussion – Heath Bennett
Backing Vocals – Elder D & Rebecca Lynn

wanna know where i came from?
i learned it in my dreams
when i crashed in new mexico
i was shot with a laser beam
still i know who i am and what it all means
searched for it on the internet but it’s too behind the scenes

yeah i’m half ape, i’m half alien
half ape, half alien
aliens fucked the apes

aliens fucked the apes
and man he was raised
to believe in god
cause god’s from outer space
and jesus is the alien
who taught me who i am
i hope that he comes back
cause jesus is my friend

55 MINUTE LOUIE-LOUIE (IGGY POP)

Additional Players:
Drums – Greg Ernst
Bass – Scott Evers
Additional Rhythm Guitar – Elder D

kiss alive to iron side
and all the things that fucked up my daddy’s brain
and now he’s insane
from a 55 minute louie-louie
david bowie came to earth
and you know that the sound that he gave birth to the newest craze
it was a space oddity that i had to remember
but it’s cool
iggy pop’s gonna punish all you fools
for being lame
with a 55 minute louie-louie
cassius clay in vietnam
and all those things that were so fucking wrong
and now it’s the same
it’s just a new song that i couldn’t remember
elvis presley had to die
and i wasn’t the only one that had to cry
and think it was lame
when someone shot out john lennon’s brain
cause it’s cool
iggy pop’s gonna punish all them fools again and again
with a 55 minute louie-louie
ozzie osbourne speaks to me
and tells you that you got to be so free and not insane
it’s just a black sabbath world to remember
it’s cool
he’s gonna get all them fools
for being lame
just a 55 minute louie-louie

ALL HIGH-HAT ACTION (WITH KATFISH)

Additional Players:
Drums – Rob Fadtke
Additional Rhythm Guitar – Scott Evers
Backing Vocals – Joseph “Katfish” Thomas

all high-hat action
atomic skies the ground is moving in
i got my rhymes they come to me within
what i want to know now, is this a jubilee?
is this the cawley vibe, about you and me
i would never let you down, you’re my friend

i’m always down and when i’m dropping in
the good advice it comes to me within
what i want to know now, is this the jubilee?
is this the katfish rhymes, would you give it up to me
i would never let you down, you’re my friend

cause i’m on an eastern ride
the holy roller and the seal of hands
i don’t know when i’m out of my head
i can barely understand the world
just to get a reaction
and when i hear that rhyme
it’s all high-hat action

i would never let you down, you’re my friend
till the end then it’s over its over
i like it I like it when you talk to me
i like it, i like it, cause it sets me free
think it over, think it over
until the end
all high-hat action
(Song ends with original 4-track jam from The Cake House)

ALCOHOL

Additional Players:
Drums – Billy Blaze
Bass – Bill Lanham
Additional Rhythm Guitar – Elder D

saved myself on a video tape
cause naked’s a style that don’t go out of date
need a girl who’s got paints and devices
and not so caught up in a world full of crises
cause youth and beauty will give way to age
and i’ll need someone to help me from my cage
alcohol is a magical potion
she mixes up all my emotions

save yourself on my answering machine
i’m sick of your hang ups, you know what i mean
need a girl who’s got love and some faith
and not so caught up in a world full of hate

you see me i’m falling, don’t think that i’m fucking around
high, low and then i reach for the ground
high, low, reach for the ground!

CRACK ME OPEN

Additional Players:
Drums – Scott Devours
Bass – Bill Lanham
Additional Rhythm Guitar – Elder D
Percussion – Antoine Arvizu
Wood Block – Lokar, the tree nymph-o

crack me open, so you can see how i feel inside
crack me open, there really isn’t nothing to hide

and the things you say to me
make me run with my emotions
its making me try
but the true reality is
i haven’t got the notion

crack me open, so you can see how i feel inside
crack me open, there really isn’t nothing

and the things you say to me
make me run with my emotions
its making me try
but the true reality is
i haven’t got the notion
it’s making me rise
it’s making me cry
it’s making me rise
it’s making me try

being away from you
makes me think of what went wrong
being away from you
makes it hard for me to live
being away from you
makes me miss the things we had
gonna build it up but then I’m gonna break down
over, and over, and over
and out
