    for an upcoming album called "some basstistics".

    as always love to hear any kind of feedback, but preferably in the negative/constructive...

    freestyle

    oh let me tell ya...
    i know this little fella,
    he makes a moment more angelic than Ma Teresa

    his name's Mandela...
    a curious little fella,
    and you know what, he knows us, and he even tried to tell ya -

    bout the muggers and the campers
    and the A-Dults wearin Pampers,
    bout the killers and the spin,
    and the **** we're getting in

    that'll rape ya...
    like a pristine f-16
    swoopin up, swoopin round,
    and flat down on the scene

    like a red-carpet, sinsimelia, silver-silk machine
    the schools that we build - telling us what we mean
    the words are obscene, and they're Xanex serene
    and the truth is still ignored like a crack smoking fiend

    the foundation...
    the ideological iteration,
    is the rock solid platform
    of this aerospace nation

    and limp as the dick
    cheney greasing congress,
    slip-sliding senate,
    'n ashcroft getting on us

    this vibe ain't what we're after
    deep in rumsfeld's laughter
    and the critical wooden dowel,
    that Mr. Colin Powell

    always getting into trouble,
    always burstin up the bubble,
    of GOP scare-fare -
    the original D.A.R.E. pair

    making bucks on the side
    saving up for low tide
    and drinking sweet martinis,
    while they laugh at how they lied

    taking pride while they hide
    and the people were denied
    that's how they make it
    putting guilt on your pride

    senseless strife

    (instrumental)

    protocol

    oh the pomp and protocal of it all
    oh how we never will learn
    oh the sound we make when we all fall
    oh how we always will burn

    it's always the same
    even more of the same game
    no matter the frame
    or who and whether to blame

    oh the pomp and protocal of it all
    oh how we never will learn
    oh the sound we make when we all fall
    and oh we always will burn

    just more of the same game
    the same damn game
    there's no fame without shame
    so put your face to the flame

    oh the pomp and protocal of it all
    oh how we never will learn
    oh the sound we make when we all fall
    and oh we always will burn

    what's it gonna take?
    when we stare at the ground
    what we gotta fake?
    looking for what we found

    who we gotta make?
    we're just trying to get through
    and what we gotta bake?
    working many against the few

    oh the pomp and protocal of it all
    oh how we never will learn
    oh the sound we make when we all fall
    oh how we always will burn

    cause it's always the same
    always the same plane
    cause it's always the same
    and always the same vein

    oh the pomp and protocal of it all
    oh how we never will learn
    oh the sound we make when we all fall
    oh how we always will burn

    what's it gonna take?
    when we stare at the ground
    and what we gotta fake?
    looking for what we found

    what we gotta make?
    we're just trying to get through
    and what we gotta bake?
    working many against the few

    oh the pomp and protocal of it all
    oh how we never will learn
    oh the sound we make when we all fall
    oh how we always will burn

    how do we cook?
    just to get to the herd
    quote from which book?
    when the passion is stirred

    oh the pomp and protocal of it all
    oh how we never will learn
    oh the sound we make when we all fall
    oh how we always will burn


    freestyletwo

    you see they're hustlers...
    those dirty Texas rustlers,
    a long and lean lineage of lying mother ****ers

    they want control...
    that's what it's all about
    like the Pope in 13 hundred,
    not the people that he made dead

    the explanation...
    the excuses for the station
    are wrapped up in God talk and theories that don't walk
    humanitary lines,
    or unifying climes,
    they're just money-makin, God-fearing, boogieman whines

    about helping out our masters
    and the socio-political-geo-squashing slime
    that take out the motion
    the elementary devotion
    the love that makes it bind, the heart that walks that line
    and punch em in the stomach, and gut and rob it blind

    the masters are the crafters of the global-crisis bind

    so just look hard, and you know you'll probly find
    manipulating minds
    hard at work at the process
    of leading all the blind
    with a neat little trick,
    with a carrot on a stick,
    and apologetic, apathetic, self-centered dicks

    just check the rockets
    and the bullets in their pockets

    Its all very weird...alot of it is pretty muddy in terms of mixing, its hard to make out what your saying(if that is you) in most of them, and the bass is akk bubbley and stuff.
    maybe thats what you were going for I don't know, I wasn't expecting it though.
    they have a kind of peter gabriel sound going for them, its cool. but too muddy and undefined for my tastes.

    right on, exactly the aim, muddy, weird, make you think a bit.

    the idea is that as little of the "offensive" verbage comes out clearly, but is clear to folks reading along or familiar with what's being said - as if the whole thing is being spoken under your breath, with hooks on the funner parts, eg, "like limp as the dick, cheney greasing congress".

    not as much the intent with the other two, but i assume you were talking about the singing there in the wannabe hip hop stuff.

    yeah these things are teaching me a lot about mixing stuff up. i want to use the freestyle songs as "book shelf ends" on either side of the rest of the album, so i like having them mixed so differently, but neither are ideal.

    anyway, thanks for the listen/thoughts.
