Track Name: Banana, (Pt. 1)
Peel it back
Peel it back
'Cause the time is right
and the air is ripe
with activity
Peel it back
Peel it back
to the fruit of your labor below

Don't want to lose the things I've been taught
and I don't wanna just sit and rot
Hiding the substance that's within
Protected by a thin layer of skin

Peel it back
Peel it back
'Cause the time is right
and the air is ripe
for activity
Peel it back
Peel it back
to the fruit of your labor below

I'm not brave, but still it's green means go
I'm yellow with caution, my approach is slow
The herring's red and things are thrown off course
It's really about what you can take with force

And if it's the end
what a trip it's been!
I'm ready, just say when
Peel it back

Peel it back

Peel it back
Peel it back
'Cause the time is right
and the air is ripe
with activity
Peel it back
Peel it back
Peel it back
Peel it back
Track Name: Banana (Pt. 2)
I don't wanna slip
Gotta keep my traction here
Balancing my grip
and I'm sure that it may appear
that I've lost already,
and it might be true
but if I'm gonna fall,
then you're going down too!

Be aware of your feet
and check your step as you advance
You may stay upright,
but gravity has other plans
Watch the ground!
Watch the ground!

If we're unprepared
then we can be caught off-guard
and that's when we fall
I'm betting that the impact is hard
It seems that there's nothing that we can do
With an ounce of awareness, well it's not quite true

Be aware of your feet
and check your step as you advance
You may stay upright,
but gravity has other plans
Watch the ground!
Watch the ground!

Be aware of your feet
and check your step as you advance
You may stay upright,
but gravity has other plans
Watch the ground!
Watch the ground!
Track Name: Banana (Pt. 3)
I've gotta split
I'm being legit
It's gotta quit
My stomach is sick
I can't escape
There's nowhere that's safe
And all this hate
That's not how to behave

When the fight has been lost
And you're counting the cost
You're assessing it all
Doing damage control
Gotta make up your mind
If you leave it behind
And I will
Goodbye, it's been real!

I gotta go, go, go!
I gotta go, go, go!
I gotta go, go, go!
I gotta go, go, go!

I tried to stand
The trouble was scanned
And, so I ran
It wasn't the plan
But, I suspect
This isn't a test
A painted X
For missiles to blast

When the fight has been lost
And you're counting the cost
You're assessing it all
Doing damage control
Gotta make up your mind
If you leave it behind
And I will
Goodbye, it's been real!
The blast radius won't care how you feel!

And I was taught to love and respect
A lesson I don't believe you have learned yet
You seem to have taken it all for yourself
Maybe it's too late for you to be helped
Compassion, and kindness, and humility
Some characteristics that you truly need
Admitting you're wrong when you made a mistake
Again, you're not making this great!

I gotta go, go, go!
I gotta go, go, go!
I gotta go, go, go!
I gotta go, go, go!

When the fight has been lost
And you're counting the cost
You're assessing it all
Doing damage control
Gotta make up your mind
If you leave it behind
And I will
Goodbye, it's been real!
The blast radius won't care how you feel!
Track Name: Orange
I'm not glad that you said it
In fact, it's borderline pathetic
Honestly, now I'm losing track
Of what is fiction when there are no facts
Spread shot, that'll wear 'em out
Make 'em scatter, fill their heads with doubt
Deny everything you've said and done
Gaslight like we're the crazy ones

Conflict of interest inc
Probably worse than you think
So, just be vigilant
Be vigilant.
Drain all the swamp, who cares
Fill it up with billionaires
So, please be vigilant
Be vigilant

A new day, another law to break
It ain't news if you can call it fake
Remove the credibility
Unless they follow willingly
Another round, into the ground we go
Oh, look! Another puppet show
To distract from the facts and clues
From the power that has been abused

Conflict of interest inc
Probably worse than you think
So, just be vigilant
Be vigilant.
Drain all the swamp, who cares
Fill it up with billionaires
So, please be vigilant
Be vigilant

How could you think
He was the one
Who could relate
To the common man
As it plays out
As it goes on
This is our fate
We've all been damned

Conflict of interest inc
Probably worse than you think
So, just be vigilant
Be vigilant.
Drain all the swamp, who cares
Fill it up with billionaires
So, please be vigilant
Be vigilant
Conflict of interest inc
Probably worse than you think
So, just be vigilant
Be vigilant.
Be vigilant.
Be vigilant.
Track Name: A Little Old Lady
Headed out for a walk
Happened upon this shop
Stepped inside to see what's in stock
Truth is - I'm new in town
And I know how that must sound
So, pardon me as I browse around

A little old lady who
Was in charge of the place
She said take your time
However long that it takes
There's no pressure to buy
When you find something
That has some appeal
I'll make you a deal

Blueprints of melodies
Old sonic recipes
Good thing I charged my batteries
And now I walk around
With treasures I bought and found
Enveloped my ears
Caressed with sound

A little old lady who
Was in charge of the place
She said take your time
However long that it takes
There's no pressure to buy
When you find something
That has some appeal
I'll make you a deal

A little old lady who
Was in charge of the place
She said take your time
However long that it takes
There's no pressure to buy
When you find something
That has some appeal
I'll make you a deal
Track Name: Olive
In the past I would run to the rescue
Challenging all that upsets you
Fighting through everything I can
And maybe this would surprise ya
I'm older, but not quite wiser
At the end of the day I am what I am

So, you're in distress
Well, that's how it gets
That's just life
And we get what we get
But, that doesn't mean we'll get it right
So, you're in distress
Well, that's how it gets
That's just life
And we get what we get
But, that doesn't mean we'll get it right
Doesn't mean we'll get it

Always that one solution
The one I'm forever using
Turn to the quick fix, and knock it out
Years after the protecting
Here's what I was not expecting
A fearsome disease whose name is doubt

So, you're in distress
Well, that's how it gets
That's just life
And we get what we get
But, that doesn't mean we'll get it right
So, you're in distress
Well, that's how it gets
That's just life
And we get what we get
But, that doesn't mean we'll get it right
Doesn't mean we'll get it

I'm not a hero
That's not how I would describe myself
Let's make it clear, 'though
If it can be helped
Save yourself

So, you're in distress
Well, that's how it gets
That's just life
And we get what we get
But, that doesn't mean we'll get it right
So, you're in distress
Well, that's how it gets
That's just life
And we get what we get
But, that doesn't mean we'll get it right
That doesn't mean we'll get it right
That doesn't mean we'll get it right

Track Name: Interrupting Cow
It's unbearable, the words erupt from my brain
My timing's terrible, I need to learn to refrain
I can derail, and then distract, or just some of each
And in that instance you suppose I'd choose lack of speech

It's on my mind
But I can never time it right to speak
I've learned to be fine knowing that I'm
Inclined to just forget this week

How do you do, and are you bluffing
Wow, closing my mouth can be a tough thing
Now, I'm the interrupting
Cow, I don't wanna lose my thought

It's unimportant, and I should know better by now
My thought's an orphan and there is no home to be found
I'm interrupting and there is no means of escape
I'm Teddy Ruxpin, so please just press stop on the tape

It's on my mind
But I can never time it right to speak
I've learned to be fine knowing that I'm
Inclined to just forget this week

How do you do, and are you bluffing
Wow, closing my mouth can be a tough thing
Now, I'm the interrupting
Cow, I don't wanna lose my thought
How do you do, and are you bluffing
Wow, closing my mouth can be a tough thing
Now, I'm the interrupting
Cow, I don't wanna lose my thought

It's on my mind
But I can never time it right to speak
I've learned to be fine knowing that I'm
Inclined to just forget this week

Now, I'm the interrupting
Cow, I don't wanna lose my thought
How do you do, and are you bluffing
Wow, closing my mouth can be a tough thing
Now, I'm the interrupting
Cow, I don't wanna lose my thought
I don't wanna lose my thought
I don't wanna lose my thought
Track Name: Dwayne (f. Beefy)
It's a scenario I can look and sound strange in
Another day, but nothing else is really changing
A classic case of underwhelmed, and overbooking
I think you have been smelling what I have been cooking

How did we get here
So much to do
You bring it on yourself
You know it's true

I pick a destination without truly knowing
I'll play the heel if that will take me where I'm going
It's of no consequence, and there is no second guessing
I'm not sure who you think that I should be impressing

How did we get here
So much to do
You bring it on yourself
You know it's true

So, I said pace yourself
It's no race
Don't complain
And I said make yourself
Like a Rock
Just like Dwayne

Kids these days they'll do anything
Corkscrew moonsaults off the balcony
Do the same high spots they did yesterday
Travesty baby What would uncle Jimmy say?
Call ya names and say your killing the biz
Shoe is yours if it fits, that's just the way that it is
Tell a story give em something to admire
Can't make every move every night till you retire cuz
That'll sneak up before ya know it
Took a bump into glass, got the paycheck to show it, right?
Make em miss you, be Cena, don't let em see ya
Who know, could be the sexiest rockiest Maivia
Bingo halls, backyards, and dive bars
Elevate to a movie star with sports cars
You just need to know which ones you wanna fight for
But what do I know, Dave isn't giving me 5 stars

So, I said pace yourself
It's no race
Don't complain
And I said make yourself
Like a Rock
Just like Dwayne
So, I said pace yourself
It's no race
Don't complain
And I said make yourself
Like a Rock
Just like Dwayne
Track Name: To
I see you there on the wall
No pressure at all
I'm not looking for a nightcap
I just want you to dance with me
And if you say no
That's okay, and I'll go
I'm not looking for a nightcap
I just want you to dance with me

But, if you say yes
We can take a couple steps
I'm not smooth with my moves
So, you're probably unimpressed
If it's not clear to you
I'll do what you wanna do
Just like writing you a letter
Without saying who it's to
Who should I adress this to
Should I pursue or bid adieu

But, if you say yes
We can take a couple steps
I'm not smooth with my moves
So, you're probably unimpressed
If it's not clear to you
I'll do what you wanna do
Just like writing you a letter
Without saying who it's to
Who should I adress this to
Track Name: Boo
Our planet's damaged
There's blood on the soil
The temperature boils
To the victor, the spoils
Those who will speak up
Are those it affects
And this is a guess
But, you could be next

Watch it crumble
This is fine
We live in fear
Most of the time
And I'll have helped it happen
'Cause I haven't said boo

Whatever happens
It's not for the best
It's cause for distress
This isn't a test
We're chasing cheese and
The trap has been sprung
If our time is done
We've had a good run

Watch it crumble
This is fine
We live in fear
Most of the time
And I'll have helped it happen
'Cause I haven't said boo
Don't say nothing

There is a chance that
We could make it right
Or say that we tried
That's if we survive

Watch it crumble
This is fine
We live in fear
Most of the time
And I'll have helped it happen
'Cause I haven't said boo
Track Name: Madam
Can't rewind or pause
A voice lingers in the walls
Another place
Another time
It's as designed

A sound that's so sincere
It's almost like they're here
A moment that's now
Life interrupts
And we grow up
Another place
Another time
It's as designed
It's there in your mind

Ooh, Madam
Ooh, Madam
Track Name: Doctor
A system to abuse
No one will suspect a thing
It's way past overdue
Another day of reckoning

Hear it on the wind
The sounds of change
But I won't be around
To see that day
Is there a Doctor in the house
The patient's bleeding out
Is there a Doctor in the house

Thinking nothing's wrong
Bliss in willful ignorance
You're guilty as your skin
Until proven innocent

Hear it on the wind
The sounds of change
But I won't be around
To see that day
Is there a Doctor in the house
Is there a Doctor in the house
Is there a Doctor in the house
The patient's bleeding out
Is there a Doctor in the house
Pay it no mind
Pay it no mind
Pay it no mind

I come from a place of privilege
So it's not my discussion
And I can't say a lot
It feels like I'm interrupting
I won't change any minds
But I'm sick of saying nothing
While the world burns down,
But it's the world that we've been stuck in
There are some who abuse power positions
It's corruption
With a license to kill
And no fear of repercussions
They won't BE held accountable
So let me ask you something
Why WOULDN'T a racist sign up
When your function
is to serve and PROTECT
Or NEGLECT when it's convenient
They can go for the NECK
And not SWEAT the intervening
No accountability
But I'm not giving up hope
I'm saying black lives matter
'Cause you act like they don't
And in conclusion there's no way
That I can say this correctly
I didn't say a thing because it didn't affect me
I didn't say a thing because it didn't affect me
I didn't say a thing because it didn't affect me directly
