about

I began attempting to upload a song a day until the release of my album on February 8th, but as inspiration is a fickle thing, the project has now become "song of the day, if I feel like it." I am taking suggestions for song topics, please go to my facebook page, linked from this website, and give me any ideas you may have!

Track Name: Campfield and Boggs
If you stay away from Africans and gays
It's virtually impossible to contract AIDS
Stacey Campfield warns us to behave
One airline pilot with a monkey is now killing the human race

Don't say gay (x2)
You might turn the kids astray
And they won't live to see old age
Don't say gay (x2)
If you've got a kid who's a little confused
You gotta teach him to be straight

When Martha Boggs heard the news
She couldn't believe her ears
And when Stacy Campfield walked into the Bistro at the Bijou
She said listen here:

You've gone from idiot
To dangerous
Spreadin' your lies I can see it in your eyes
You're a man of fear and hate

You've gone from idiot
To dangerous
Your bullying ways have gone insane
How does it feel when discrimination comes your way

Stacy Campfield says that normal people
Have no reason to stress
Stay away from Haitians and don't mess with Dalmatians
And more important than all the rest:

Don't say gay (x2)
You might turn the kids astray
And they won't live to see old age
Don't say gay (x2)
If you've got a kid who's a little confused
You gotta teach him to be straight
Track Name: Dinosaurs and Monster Trucks
Last night I had a terrible dream
About the coming of the ages
I saw fire heard screams
There were people in cages

Out of the smoke I heard a frightening roar
A black monster truck driven by a tyrannosaur

It's dinosaurs and monster trucks
taking over the world
It's dinosaurs and monster trucks
You better pray to the lord

Pterodactyls flying in the dark
Velociraptors ripping out your heart
Monster trucks crushing your legs
Driven by tyrannosaurs who then bite off your head

And in the dark I saw a shining light
Could it save me from the stegosaurus's spike
It seems it's flying through the sky
Oh no it's just a monster truck with a busted headlight

It's dinosaurs and monster trucks
taking over the world
It's dinosaurs and monster trucks
You better pray to the lord
Track Name: The Franceland
Me and my friend Elisabeth decided to take a trip
So we boarded an airplane; we didn't know how to sail a ship
The pilot said, "where to, young folks?"
And we said take us to France
So we flew to the Franceland wearing our French fancy pants

And we danced under the eiffel tower
As it sparkled brilliant light
We ate fresh baguettes at every hour
And the red wine poured all night

I said to Elisabeth now what shall we do?
Should we visit musée d'Orsay or possibly the Louvre?
Or here's one called Musée de l'Érotisme,
I dunno what it means but I think I'd like to see it!

And we danced under the eiffel tower
As it sparkled brilliant light
We ate fresh baguettes at every hour
And the red wine poured all night

We traveled around the Franceland from Alsace to Normandy
Wearing our French fancy pants and trying smelly cheese
We met a friendly Frenchman playing UNO named Benji
He tried to run away to Russia but we brought him to Tennessee!
Track Name: NDAA 2012
The government is gonna take me away
Since they passed the NDAA
I've been waiting for when my name is called
And they shove me between solid concrete walls

America is a battlefield and there's a war to win
Fear is pitting the government against it's citizens
Freedom is a dirty word and dissent is a sin
So do we wave our flag, or do we throw it in

You can say that everything's all right
You can sleep soundly through the night
You can close your eyes to the passing days
Maybe your children will wake from the haze (to see that)

America is a battlefield and there's a war to win
Fear is pitting the government against it's citizens
Freedom is a dirty word and dissent is a sin
So do we wave our flag, or do we throw it in
Track Name: Krampus
I woke up in the middle of the night
Saw a figure in the pale moonlight
Two big horns on the top of its head
I wished I could go back to bed

Four long claws beckoned at me
It slithered its tongue and gnashed its teeth
It held my eyes with a gaze so strong
It danced and sang this awful song

Krampus Walk

I tried to run and I tried to scream

and he let out a laugh long and mean
He touched my head and I saw above

Two big horns that were red as blood

His legs were hairy and his claws were long

He danced and sang this awful song
The Krampus band will march tonight

See them out in the pale moonlight
Track Name: Other Side
I"m so mad I got to take a life
First man I see is gonna die tonight
Men they greet me like the rising sun
Take a little look but don't you look too long

Ooh, are you satisfied?
Send word to your mother, I'll be crossing to the other side

Men need women like the air they breathe
That's why they hate every woman they see
Love 'em, hate 'em, it's all the same
When men hold the world there can be no change

Ooh, are you satisfied?
Send word to your mother, I'm crossing to the other side

I'm so mad I got to wail and rage
Can't do nothing but rattle my cage
Put me in a dress, take me to the town
I want to be pretty and I want to be found

Ooh, are you satisfied?
Take me under cover, I want to taste the other side

Here is what a woman can do
She can take a heartbeat and make it two
She can be burned, she can be bled
Roll away the stone and rise from the dead

Ooh, are you satisfied?
Send word to the Mother, we'll be crossing to the other side

The other side
Track Name: Fire in the House of the Lord
Fire in the house of the Lord
Fire gonna purify
Fire burn the temple down
Fire keeping' me alive

I ain't no man or woman
I ain't no race or creed
I come from a place where the rivers meet
I come from a golden seed

Water from the rolling sky
Wash the ashes from my skin
Water from the sister stream
Leave me feeling clean again

I'mma keep on walking
I'mma hold my hold my head up high
I'm gonna keep on loving till you open your heart
Until you look into my eyes
