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

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!

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!

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.

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

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 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 I don't wanna lose my thought I don't wanna lose my thought

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

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

Boo 02:47
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

Madam 02:40
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

Doctor 04:18
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

about

Glenn Case Spokane, Washington

I write music.

I listen to music.

I genuinely just love music.

I have a song available in "Rock Band" and that makes me smile.

Yeah, I'm the guy who did the soundtrack for "The New Adventures of Captain S".

I probably release too many albums, but I do attempt to find a good balance between quality and quantity.

Thank you.
