Loverless Man
c. '13 Vlayman

I took my muse for a walk
Me and her we needed to talk
I thought had a lot to to say
Some glitches and bitches to try and get straight

It didn't work out too well
She told me to go straight to hell
It didn't work out as I planned
Now I'm a museless man

I called my protege on the phone
I told her that its time to come home
I asked her if she had somethin' to say
She witched and she bitched she hung up right away

It didn't work out too well
She told me to go straight to hell
It didn't work out as I planned
Now I'm a studentless man

I told my lover to gimme some space
I gave no reason and I gave no grace
I simply told her not expect any more
And then I showed her staright to the door

It didn't work out too well
She told me to go straight to hell
It didn't work out as I planned
Now I'm a loverless man

Bro'
c. '13 Vlayman

2
Spittin' on the one hand and suckin' on the other
I figger that you prob'ly know my brother
And how he gets mean 3x
Never nice or even inbetween

2
Kickin' with one foot because the other's broken
It ain't a sign of things to come, it's just a token
Of how he gets mean 3x
Never nice or even inbetween

4
Sittin' on one cheek cause you can't on the other
I figger that is cause you prob'ly know my brother
Carryin' one hand wrapped in solid plaster
Meetin' up with him was just yer latest disaster
You know how he gets mean
You know now he gets mean
You know how he gets mean
Never nice or even inbetween

6
Lookin' out one eye as you hide beneath the covers
I'm pretty damn certain that you met my brother
You know how he gets mean
You know now he gets mean
You know how he gets mean
Never nice or even inbetween
You know how he gets mean
You know now he gets mean
You know how he gets mean
Never nice or even inbetween

So I jammed on Thursday nite, and recorded it on the H2, and looped the drums on this from there:

The Back-Up
c. '13 Vlayman

When you took me on it was to be your back-up
You want me to keep you from having to back up
You wanted muscle for the tussles
I was yer back-up

Now you want me to be a ass-kisser
Ain't it a pisser?
I'm just a ass-kicker

I took the position, and I admit I didn't listen
When you told me I might get some credit racked up
This ain't sedition only my long-held tradition
I only ever wanted to be a back-up

Now you want me to be a ass-kisser
Ain't it a pisser?
I'm just a ass-kicker
Now you want me to be a ass-kisser
All I gotta say is, ain't it a pisser?
I'm just a ass-kicker

I don' carry no weapon but I still like the fight
I don't mind you talkin' in the back-room all nite
I'll stand and read all the posters that they tacked up
I only ever wanted to be a back-up

Now you want me to be a ass-kisser
Ain't it a pisser?
I'm just a ass-kicker

Where You Started From (Right)
c. '13 Vlayman

I think you're glad that you got my attention
I think you're glad, oh, yeah,
I think you're glad that I noticed your regression
I think you're glad 2x

You're right where you started from 3x
you're just that fuckin' dumb


I think you're mad that you lost my attention
I think you're mad, oh, yeah,
I think you're mad that I noticed your regression
I think you're mad 2x

You're right where you started from 3x
you're just that fuckin' dumb
You're right where you started from 3x
you're just that fuckin' dumb

I think you're sad that you needed my attention
I think you're sad, oh, yeah,
I think you're sad that I noticed your regression
I hope you're glad, mad and sad

You're right where you started from 3x
you're just that fuckin' dumb
You're right where you started from 3x
you're just that fuckin' dumb

On the Water (Bread)
c. '13 Vlayman; derranged by Grankspoine

Standin' on the corner, with my shit in my hand
Tryna figger how I'm gonna, make my way across this land

Don't wanna throw my bread on the water
and end up dead

Ridin' in a Cadillac, a phony-ass SUV
Thumbed my way to Chicago, passin' thru St. Louie

Don't wanna throw my bread on the water
and end up dead
Don't wanna lose my bread on the water
and end up dead

Jane she's got a pistol, she chased me on my way
With her patchouli and crystals, I knew I hadda call it a day

Don't wanna throw my bread on the water
and end up dead
Don't wanna throw my bread on the water
and end up dead

Wrong (You Would Be)

You think you know everything about me
You think you comprehend it all, I see
You thing you have everything down

You would be wrong.

You preen and you posture as you walk by
You seem to believe that I'm about to cry
You think ? that you can write my song

You would be wrong.

You tell all your friends what they don't wanna know
You mouth gets a-going and it goes and it goes
You think you can keep goin' on and on

You would be wrong.

For the last cabinetpin.com monthly challenge:

Away the Crow Road
c. '13 Vlayman

Like a scare crow, I stand at the end of the row
You keep seeing me from the corner of yer eye
Keeping yer head low, you can't help but know
I'm here to help you fly

CH: Away the crow road
If it's all the same
Away the crow road
Back the way you came

As a young man, you do what you can
You've come back for her, it's written in yer eyes
Once a young man, you hoped I'd understand
But I'm here to help you fly

CH

In the daylight, you are such a sight
Some kinda dark thing, to those of us with eyes
You weren't born right, you live for the night
I'm here to help you fly

CH2x

Like a scare crow, I stand at the end of the row
You keep seeing me from the corner of yer eye
Keeping yer head low, you can't help but know
I'm here to help you fly

CH out

2 O'Clock
c. '13 Vlayman

2:00 in the mornin', is the time I go to bed
3:00 in the mornin', is when you begin to mess with my head
mess with my head

CH: 3:00 in the mornin', you come to me
3:00 in the mornin', is the only time I ever see you
(anymore)

By 4:00 in the mornin', baby you is gone
By 4:00 in the mornin', the only thing I hear is that old wind blowin'

CH 2x:
3:00 in the mornin', you come to me
3:00 in the mornin', is the only time I ever see you
anymore
4:00 in the mornin' is the time that arise
4:00 in the mornin' and I pretend I wanna get up before the sunrise

All These Women
c. '13 Vlayman

Sue St. Marie was a sailor's daughter
Born off the coast of Gethsamane
She had some lambs she love but led them to the slaughter
And then she started in on me

Claire LaCroix was the daughter of a tailor
She only wore the finest crinoline
Lace and ribbons were on the outside
Leather and silk within

CH: All these women are like breath to me
All these women will be death ... to me

Iris de Mornay was married to a soldier
He was always off fighting in the great wars
She waited for him something like a cuppla hours
Then she came askin' me for more

Madeline never had a last name
Everybody knew her as just plain old Madeline
Madeline worked behind the red light
In my favorite house of sin

There are some real gems mixed in your lyrics. I really wish I had written 'On the Water' myself.

1st Dementment
c. '13 Vlayman

Speakin' freely is a wonderful thing
Speaking freely is almost good as singin'

Saying what ya mean is a powerful thing
Saying what you mean is gonna keep it clean

Speakin' freely is a wonderful thing
Speaking freely is almost good as singin'

Everybody laughs nowadays when ya talk about yer rights
They don't wanna get off the phone and try and make things right
People ain't wanna leave the homes and the satellite TV
Sittin' round absorbin' what they gi' ya, ain't enuff fo' me

Ain't enuff fo' me 2x

Speakin' freely is a wonderful thing
Speaking freely is almost good as singin'
