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

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

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!

NDAA 2012 02:06
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

Krampus 02:41
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

Other Side 03:33
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

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

Breathe 03:36
I’m just gonna breathe Until there’s nothing in this life I’d change I’m just gonna breathe Until I touch the sorrow ‘neath the rage I’m just gonna breathe Until there’s nothing lurking ‘round my smile I’m just gonna breathe Until I’m glad to breathe just for a while Give up the fight For some other life There’s hope in the way that you are livin’ Give up the fight For some other life There’s change in no longer resistin’ I’m just gonna breathe Until there’s nothing I’d change in this life I’m just gonna breathe Until I touch the love beneath the strife I’m just gonna breathe Until it feels so natural just to smile I’m just gonna breathe Until I am glad to breathe here for a while Give up the fight For some other life There’s hope in the way that you are livin’ Give up the fight For some other life There’s change in no longer resistin’ Breathe, breathe, breathe

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!
