about

I needed to release something to tide the one fan I have over. Soundcloud was glitching up and YouTube is stupid.

Track Name: Coal
Aimless, doing the same family custom, father's father's father's profession
Cough, bloody handkerchief, no respirator - yearly fire

Diggin' coal, barely any pay
multifamily mobile home, the mountains are damnation

I go to you, you're my hope, let me out of this flesh nightmare
Babies without brains, life canisters - my body's weak, but I must keep on

Diggin' coal, barely any pay
multifamily mobile home, the mountains are damnation

I follow you, my only redemption - ticket to light, ticket to healing
Get me out of this hell, the endless bodies lay mangled
My profession: energy source religion.

Diggin' coal, barely any pay
multifamily mobile home, the mountains are damnation
Diggin' coal, barely any pay
multifamily mobile home, the mountains are damnation
Track Name: Midway Park
ride with you tonight, I'll ride forever
there's no way to predict this kind of weather
ashes fall to earth, words are severed
feathers turn to weighted iron pillars

Midway park
streetlights shine on a hood that is dark, down on the graves
where will I? Will I? Will I?


Think of you tonight, I'll think forever
there's no way to predict this kind of weather
ashes fall to earth, words are severed
feathers turn to broken beads and pillars

Midway park
streetlights shine on a hood that is dark, down on the graves
where will I? Will I? Will I?

don't tell the truth, we'll lie
just lie
don't tell the truth
just lie
Track Name: Peter Cetera (Preliminary Mix)
Monday afternoon, all alone, the fun's winding down
AND THEN A BANG
go to the basement, it's all gone
there, there - let him rest

They cry all over the newspapers, try to keep his vision alive
watering down with inferior players
AND THEN IT'S MY TURN ON THE MIC

Peter Cetera's gonna cut his long hair
Peter Cetera's gonna be a big pop star
Nobody seems to notice the disgrace
of why Peter Cetera became what he is

Come out of one building, into another, in the studio
re-imagining the dream
who cares about integrity?
the system's about money!

"But it's all for the spirit of the music!
Our guitars wail his songs all night long...
even though some of the notes are missing..."
ALL THE SOUL'S GONE

Peter Cetera's gonna cut his long hair
Peter Cetera's gonna be a big pop star
Nobody seems to notice the disgrace
of why Peter Cetera became what he is

Nobody wants the old, they want the new, as nights and influence are better than uptown cylinders.
Robert wants this, James wants that.
Who cares about them?

I'm in my home with my family, gold records like wallpaper in my study room
Basses untouched for 13 years
friends who never come

They know better, but they don't
They'll never be accepted as a FORCE.
I'm gonna cut my hair.
I'm gonna sing some songs.

Peter Cetera's gonna cut his long hair
Peter Cetera's gonna be a big pop star
Nobody seems to notice the disgrace
of why Peter Cetera became what he is
Peter Cetera's gonna cut his long hair
Peter Cetera's gonna be a big pop star
Nobody seems to notice the disgrace
of why Peter Cetera became what he is
