Track Name: The Browning
You plant my seed into the ground
You plant my seed into the ground

What are you waiting for?
So, what are you waiting for?

I sink my teeth into the ground
I sink my teeth into the crowd

Take the time to throw a line, reel it in, and get left behind
Lose your grip, postpone the trip, sail another day
Ain't it funny how I bash my face on the wall in vain?
Seems like someday I'd get tired of waiting thinking that it'll change

So, what are you waiting for?
What are you waiting for?

Something tells me that I'm better of waiting
Something tells me what I knew before
Somethings shakin' and I'm better off waiting
Somethings shakin' and I'm out the door

You dig my roots up from the ground
You smoke my leaves until they're brown

Melt my feet into the ground
Can't see the trees behind the cloud

Take the time to throw a line, reel it in, and get left behind
Lose your grip, postpone the trip, sail another day
Ain't it funny how I bash my face on the wall in vain?
Seems like someday I'd get tired of waiting thinking that it'll change
Seems like someday I'd get tired of waiting thinking that it'll change
Track Name: mavenjones and K-SLAX - Eat the Whole Buffet
Burn me with the fire
Prick me with the briar
Make me realize there's something more than just desire
This life is a river, and its creeping around the bend
You've looked and now you've found me
Lost and wasted, down and out and gone

Do you like me better now?
You're gonna look back and find
That you like me better now
Nobody knows me

He'll eat the whole buffet
To make it all go away
He'll never find peace in the madness of a mind that lacks a brain
This life is a bottle, and its trickling down to the end
You drank it up and swallowed
Now you're wasted, down and out and gone

Do you like me better now?
You're gonna look back and find
That you like me better now
Nobody knows me

We can't sleep
Tomorrow breathes
We can beat the enemy
We can't stop
Tomorrow steals
We can beat the enemy

Turn off your lights, lock your lips and listen, when K-SLAX attax you don't wanna be missin'
I'm still the sultan of seduction, I'm the motherfuckin' dark lord of death and destruction
I'm always faded from the dank, slightly visible, I'm the uncrackable bank
Settin' ho's panties ablaze, with my rhyme of fire, makin' pussy perspire

Do you like me better now?
You're gonna look back and find
That you like me better now
Nobody knows me

We can't sleep
Tomorrow breathes
We can beat the enemy
We can't stop
Tomorrow steals
We can beat the enemy

Nobody knows me, I'm always flyin high, smokin' baby arm blunts, C-BAT til' I die
I chill so hard I disappear, all I need right now are some dubs and a beer
Bitches scream as I walk on by, K-SLAX, K-SLAX, you know why
I'm fly, and very fuckin' high
My lyrics of fire are all you desire

We can't sleep
Tomorrow breathes
We can beat the enemy
We can't stop
Tomorrow steals
We can beat the enemy
Track Name: Red and Blue Islands
You have some thoughts on kindness
Doesn't mean a thing to me
From what I've got behind this
You know me better

I had some thoughts on purpose
Its all ancient history
Now I have my thoughts on purpose
Its so much better

What beautiful things she gives and grows
Be kind to the earth and in return
Be safe to your livers and go have fun exploring

Please note this time, with our backs against the wall
We can't describe
Around the world, with our faces in the mud
Keep spinning outside your head
Keep flying beyond the edge
Keep living with no regrets
You can't tell me

You have some thoughts on kindness
Doesn't mean a thing to me
From what I've got behind this
You know me better

I had some thoughts on purpose
Its all ancient history
Now I have my thoughts on purpose
Its so much better

The most fabulous object in the world

Please note this time, with our backs against the wall
We can't describe
Around the world, with our faces in the mud
Keep spinning outside your head
Keep flying beyond the edge
Keep living with no regrets
You can't tell me

What beautiful things she gives and grows
Another year in the garbage can
Say hello to the cities and don't forget its boring

The most fabulous object in the world
Track Name: The Pounding
Can you see?
Can you believe?
In your soul?
What was carved by a river in stone

All we've known
All we've ever been told

Can you see?
Can you believe?

Did you blink?
Did you even blink at all?

And everything, everything I thought was mine
Suddenly threw it away
Rest of my life, rest of my life
Nothing can ever be the same

And everything, everything called into the light
Suddenly put into play
Rest of my life, thrown on the line
Nothing can ever be the same

Carved in stone
Withered down to the bone
