So Much to Do

Somebody once told me a better way I could live I wasn't supposed to forget but, I did Somebody once told me a lesson that I could learn About the bridges I burned Never to return And I thought I would remember but, I can't as of yet No matter how I retrace my steps I never can get the things that were said Somebody once told me Like a moth to the flame I can't remember their name It's a shame Somebody once told me beyond a reasonable doubt and I could figure it out anyhow And there's nothing I can do to jog my memory and replace what I lost It never came across And I'll leave it up to you if it's important it returns to my thoughts Wonder if it's not? And I thought I would remember but, I can't as of yet No matter how I retrace my steps I never can get the things that were said And I can only guess the missing part that's gone There's been a void that never seems to fill for so long It goes on and on And I thought I would remember but, I can't as of yet No matter how I retrace my steps I never can get the things that were said And I thought I would remember but, I can't as of yet No matter how I retrace my steps I never can get the things that were said

The World 01:55
I've been changing my mind In fact I do it most of the time And at least by now I'm aware but, still I'd say I'm under-prepared They say the world don't care if you're happy They say the world don't care if you learn Either way it's still gonna turn I've been choosing my path Stay the course and never look back Second guess, be alarmed and lose track but sometimes it is good for a laugh They say the world don't care if you're happy They say the world don't care if you learn Either way it's still gonna turn I have convinced myself again that I am never gonna win and that is probably right But if there is one ray of hope then I'll take comfort taking notes It isn't perfect, but that's just life They say the world don't care if you're happy They say the world don't care if you learn Either way it's still gonna turn

Was Gonna 03:29
The thoughts my mind has to review Littered with all the things I didn't do And you heard it straight from the source What lingers on in the end is remorse And I was gonna do so much more And I was gonna lose track of the score And I was gonna be Better to you And I was gonna try Starting anew But there's only so much I can do When it is too late And my time is up Death will await And when my days are done I just hope to say "It's been a good run" And I was gonna do so much more And I was gonna lose track of the score And I was gonna be Better to you And I was gonna try Starting anew But there's only so much I can do Don't waste your time Go make things right And I was gonna take what I have found And I was gonna make it better somehow but it's almost too late for that now
4.
Roll Me 02:16
Roll me like you're gonna roll a pair of dice Hesitate and you might be thinking twice Don't be too concerned about the end result Either way you will learn how to adult 'Cause when the clock strikes 12 we're behaving ourselves But don't you wait too long or it all goes wrong and when the clock strikes 1 we're no longer having fun So, let's roll Gotta go Roll me if you'd like to play a game of chance Hopefully there's no unforeseen circumstance Play the odds and I'm sure it will be just fine Honestly your guess is just as good as mine 'Cause when the clock strikes 12 we're behaving ourselves for now and when the clock strikes 1 we're no longer having fun So, let's roll Gotta go Roll me like you're gonna roll a pair of dice Hesitate and you might be thinking twice
5.
The thought came across my mind and then it left without a trace Leaving me standing there with that look upon my face I ain't the sharpest but I'm not dumb I ain't the sharpest but I'm not dumb If I could detach my brain it would surely be misplaced Would you see a difference if I could do that anyways? I ain't the sharpest but I'm not dumb I ain't the sharpest but I'm not dumb I'm not dull, but I don't have a point and there's not much of a head that you could annoint But, despite how dumb I've been we can conclude I will never be like you I will never be like you 'Cause that's the worst mistake that I could ever do Now, I'll never be like you Now, I'll never be like you I ain't the sharpest but I'm not dumb I ain't the sharpest I'm not dumb But, despite how dumb I've been we can conclude I will never be like you I will never be like you 'Cause that's the worst mistake that I could ever do Now, I'll never be like you Now, I'll never be like you I won't be like you I ain't the sharpest I ain't the sharpest
6.
Despite how it sounds You may not have a use for me now When the time comes I can be found I'm around I'm around When you want the right tool for the job For repairs or to tear things apart You might not need me now and that's fair But, I'm there I am there I'm here if you need me I'm here if you need me to be I'm here if you need me like a tool in the shed Go ahead Yeah If the job's right we can succeed I can wait until you're ready for me Come and find me when the choice is clear I'll be here I'll be here I'm here if you need me I'm here if you need me to be I'm here if you need me like a tool in the shed Go ahead Yeah And it can be a mess just trying to get by I can't promise that we will succeed But I'll try I will try I'm here if you need me I'm here if you need me to be I'm here if you need me like a tool in the shed Go ahead Yeah I'm here if you need me I'm here if you need me to be I'm here if you need me like a tool in the shed Go ahead Yeah

She don't need a man with a white knight complex She don't need a man to know her worth There's enough for her to deal with every day So stop move on You're making things worse She don't need a man to be overbearing She don't need a man who's really more of a boy There's enough for her to deal with every day So stop move on You're making things worse And she was looking for something else She can do it all by herself Never wanted or asked for help Don't help She don't need a man who is bold and toxic She don't need a man who's anything like you There's enough for her to deal with every day So stop move on You're making things worse And she was looking for something else She can do it all by herself Never wanted or asked for help Don't help She don't want your help Just go away
8.
Kinda Dumb 03:04
Yeah, I make mistakes It's really no secret It's easy to see and I'm not proud of who I have been and who I might be Kinda dumb and I will relive it all I was young but, that's really no excuse Kinda dumb Kinda dumb the things I've said and done Well, I for one am focusing on what can't be undone There used to be foolish excuses and not owning up But, I have learned it's best to be honest and hope that's enough Kinda dumb and I will relive it all I was young but, that's really no excuse Kinda dumb Kinda dumb the things I've said and done And maybe I'll forgive myself someday And maybe I'll improve and change my ways but, maybe I will keep this up and torture my mind [BEEFY] Not out there hunting for praise Not smart enough in my ways Been more or less just a slave to processed minimum wage Hope it's all just a phase is what my teachers would say But i didn't really go a ton I wasn't really knowing em Not that kind of a geek Vocabulary is weak My brain it may overheat Can't spell the way that I speak Think that I hit my peak When I was only a week My mom thinks I'm a handsome son But knows her baby kinda dumb Kinda dumb and I will relive it all I was young but, that's really no excuse Kinda dumb Kinda dumb Yeah, I was Kinda dumb and I will relive it all I was young but, that's really no excuse Kinda dumb Kinda dumb the things I've said and done

From an ember to a spark To shine a light on what has always been dark We're together stand or fall with her finger on the pulse of it all And it won't always pay to be courageous and brave And I know that she will make a move Because it's the right thing to do With her finger on the pulse of truth Out of nowhere She responds Sees the need and then she answers the call And it's often a thankless job with her finger on the pulse of it all And it won't always pay to be courageous and brave And I know that she will make a move Because it's the right thing to do With her finger on the pulse of truth And I know that she will make a move Because it's the right thing to do With her finger on the pulse of truth

It is time You have thought about it enough In this room There's an empty space to fill up There, a work of art And it's right You need this in your life I'm prepare I have got the right tools for the job Let me know Where you want it, and when I should stop There, a work of art And it's right You need this in your life Does it all even out and does it measure up? Do you like the way it looks? Do you like how it's hung? 'Cause it's there between the wall and her thumb There, a work of art And it's right You need this in your life Does it all even out and does it measure up? Do you like the way it looks? Do you like how it's hung? 'Cause it's there between the wall and her thumb Does it all even out and does it measure up? Do you like the way it looks? Do you like how it's hung? 'Cause it's there between the wall and her thumb

It's done but you will re-live it again And you were so sure that you'd win Now it's at an end You fought You did all you could, but fell short Despite all the love and support So, pack up and break north And the outcome might be tough to perceive Yeah, it's hard to believe You were doing so well It can go both ways when it's all said and done and humility comes in the shape of an L And yes, I'm sure you are feeling the shock The time has dissolved from the clock It has come to a stop Sometimes We're all gonna fall on our face And even when that is the case You can lose with some grace And the outcome might be tough to perceive Yeah, it's hard to believe You were doing so well It can go both ways when it's all said and done and humility comes in the shape of an L And you can learn to adapt You can look back and laugh Don't fall into a trap Where you take the wrong path You can learn, you can grow and it's best that you know This is how it can go And so Now you feel what a loss is You're bound to come across this Watch this, I know you've been an optimist There's nothing wrong with thinking positive, but opposites Can be the cause of this, and make you call it quits I'm not saying you should give up, you should GET up Sit up, build to a stand so you can hit up Plans for what to do with yourself, to do well but sometimes it's gonna end up in the shape of an L

It's sad He's convinced her that she's worthless He's convinced her that she's worthless She truly believes And she sticks around when she should go It's why he keeps her self-esteem so low And it's there on her forehead on her forehead on her forehead It's sad He's convinced her that he loves her He's convinced her that he loves her but he loves himself And she sticks around when she should go It's why he keeps her self-esteem so low And it's there on her forehead on her forehead on her forehead Maybe one day she'll get free and break the spell And she'll see that all this time she's been in hell Locked up And she sticks around when she should go It's why he keeps her self-esteem so low And it's there on her forehead on her forehead on her forehead He's convinced her that she's worthless He's convinced her that he loves her He's convinced her that she's nothing

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.
