Track Name: Harmony Love Affair
I saw the glitter in her eye, And I knew she was mine
This was the perfect night, Where the sun and the moon align
It’s where ivory met black and white, Whilst the dawn began to lust
Please don’t take this away, It’s with you that I’m obsessed
All I ask for is one more acoustic, The stripe that completes my star
Clothing, shelter, don’t mean a thing, All I want is one more bar
CHORUS
Harmony love affair, Won’t you take my fin
Ebony this I swear, Always touch my skin
Ivory the one I long, Abruptly so expire
It ends just like this, this song

You and I are on this trip, As we could only be
We’ve seen throughout our spree, This melodic harmony
King, Queen, and noble men, Make this world so incomplete
Tonic, Dominant and minor third, They all add to this wondrous fleet
To be heard is only a privilege, Taken granted would be bizarre
Counterpoint this cantus firmus, All I want is one more bar

Ivory the one I long, abruptly so expire
Track Name: Jamsicle
If you’re looking for something that will make you feel free
Hit the volume on this song, Cause I got a recipe
It’s a one part lovin and three parts fun, A tablespoon of sugar and a dose of the sun
Bake it in the oven, until it’s time to get ill, Then put it in the fridge, You’ve got a jamsicle

Afternoon delight, Got the stereo blasting
Heads popping up and down, Smiles everlasting
From this weak shit I’m fasting, People comin up and they asking
What the hell happened to the radio? laughing
I said they’ve got the money, But we got the power
Help me cook up these storms, Hour after hour

Come on now and Tell me what your saying
Toss them hands to the sky, and you know I ain’t playing
Walk it out with them kicks, and keep those shoulders a swaying
Grooving hard to the music, and this verse that I’m spraying
I’m trying to make shit happen, and I ain’t just surveying
I’ll rattle your glock, If you start disobeying
Say ya if your ears are hungry for a snack- YA
Bring fire from the kitchen, Til it’s smokin on this track
Track Name: Journey to the Dust
Although it’s set in stone, I won’t go it all alone
The future’s in my hands, People of the sands

CHORUS
I’m on a journey to the dust, In you I place my trust
My heart and soul I thrust, on this journey to the dust

Because we can be near, to ones we hold so dear
And cells and bones don’t stay, as our ashes float away

Protect our love and cherish life, like a husband loves a wife
And our children furthermore, make our dust forever endure.
Track Name: Keep This Groove Alive
Get a little soul and bust a little move now
Get a little soul and find yourself a groove now
One-e-and-a-two, three-and-four

I got the music goin, flowin, Shakin up my bones and knowin
Like a dish from magic sewin, E’erybody’s hearts I’m towin
Happiness and joy I’m showin, Redefining easy goin
In and out my harp I’m blowin, Until I die never slowin

CHORUS
Still there’s only one thing on my mind…
I’ve got to keep this groove alive
Making sure the melody survives
I’ve got to keep this groove alive

Certified in CPR, Performin it on my guitar
Stitchin up the silent scar, Wish upon a morning star
Package songs in a jar, Turn a bogey to a par
Drop a nickel at the bar, Travel to a land afar
