Track Name: I'm Done
I’m Done

It lives on the tip of your tongue
the breath to speak it’s already in your lungs
an ancient message uttered by everyone
just open up your mouth & say that’s it I’m done

I’m done with life’s demands & fate’s inconstant whims
I’m done with the hard ground looming sky and these heavy limbs

I’m done with waking up to prowl these streets for scraps and change
& I’m done with the way that time corrodes and placates your brain

I’m done with crawling through life knowing how it will end
I’m done with fighting to reach the top only to get the bends

I’m done with age and habits and gravity ruining my face
and I’m done with the way 9 out of 10 beers I’ve never heard of taste

I’m done with being the one in charge of when I go to sleep
& I’m done with being sick and with anyone expecting anything of me

I’m done with monday not cuz it’s monday but because it’s a day
I’m done with being tired & I’m tired of needing to be awake

I’m done with opening up my mail to see what it says
hey let’s just pile all of it up anywhere except for on the bed

I’m done with having a job that a robot cannot do
& I’m done with knowing elements of the plot of Rudy are not true

(chorus)

that’s it I’m done with needing a car for anything but a private place to sit
with a stereo and air conditioning and a cupholder full of mints

I’m done with even trying to get myself anywhere on time
we can all claim traffic isn’t moving if we all just refuse to drive

I’m done with restaurants & dingy haunts where people gather
I’m done with serious conversations & I’m done with idle chatter

guess what I’m done smiling for pictures so don’t even ask ok
I’m done with kicking back & unwinding after being done with a hard day

I’m done with old music & new music & also my music
I’m done with those who have a capacity for feigned interest & can abuse it

I’m done with craft i’m done with skill i’m done with artistry
& I’m done with other people doing anything even remotely similar to me

I’m done with people’s opinions & I’m done with not being heard
though I’m also done with people listening & scrutinizing every word

I’m done with people telling me my attitude is what I’ve got wrong
like it’s my fault I don’t live in a Tim McGraw song

(chorus)

I’m done with waking up
I’m done with the sun
I’m done with getting dressed
i’m done being judged

I’m done with everyone
except for myself
I’m done with being reminded
of the things I have said

I’m done with changing filters
done turning the page
I’m done getting a new phone
I am done with change

I am done going to parties
I am done with male bonding
I am done checking my email
I will not be responding

I’m done with weather
building pressure inside my head
I’m done with seasons
reminding me that one day I’ll be dead

I’m done with debating
yeah you heard me i’m done
I’m done not treating politics
like a scheme to be won

I am done with the future
I am done with past
I am done with solids liquids
I am so done with gas

I am done with certainty
I am done with doubt
I am done writing lyrics
so repeat through the fade out

that’s it I’m done…
Track Name: Rap N' Rock
Rap N’ Rock

we're all out by the lake with our headphones on
talking to our wives & daughters our new iPhones
we're making coffee with our Kuerigs & drinking Busch Light
we're cruising reddit gonewild for some tush yeah that's right

we're turning up the music on our iPod docks
we're mixing up sauza tequila & downloading Ted Talks
we're sitting on our Chevy tailgates howlin at the moon
with a bag of Rold Gold pretzels and some top forty tunes

listening to rap & rock in our jeeps & trucks
listening to rap & rock in our jeeps & trucks
listening to rap & rock in our jeeps & trucks
we'll be jamming to the radio till our Seiko radio alarm clocks go off

best believe I’m wearing Diesel jeans & Justin boots
best believe we're jammin to Harry Potter audiobooks
my girl sends me a gmail saying when you gon be home
I reply via SMS message, baby when we're done

listening to rap & rock in our jeeps & trucks
listening to rap & rock in our jeeps & trucks
listening to rap & rock in our jeeps & trucks
that Kanye West got me all turnt up
though I’m not sure I approve of the way that he was brought up
round here we’d have taught him when to shut up
& just listen to rap & rock until the sun comes up

listening to rap & rock in our jeeps & trucks
listening to rap & rock in our jeeps & trucks
listening to rap & rock in our jeeps & trucks
listening to rap & rock in our jeeps & trucks
Track Name: Handsome Boy
Handsome Boy

I woke up on a new planet
where opinions of beauty have a lower standard
and as a result i'm considered quite handsome
& so now I’m a model, famous rich & pampered

but also this planet has some problems for me
compared to the Earth there's barely any gravity
& these big winds coming from the Zordack sea
that threaten to blow me away disastrously

so my people make sure I’m tethered to the couch
I can't dance or swim or jump up off the ground
& I travel around in this big old pouch
& in all of my photos I’m getting blown around

it's pretty silly but I guess it's my gimmick
my manager says people dig it
but I kinda hope this isn't just a temporary living
I need place to stay where
it's sealed against outside air
& there's reenforced walls with
safety nets hung everywhere

so it's not quite a sure fit
& I’m not sure it's worth it
but everywhere I go people tell me i'm perfect

I’m a handsome boy
he’s a handsome boy

hey girl I see you look at me from across the room
I can tell you'd like some private time just me & you
I can tell you'd like to go somewhere with more of a mood
so I gotta warn you that's not easy to do

if I stand up I’ll probably float into space
or worse catch a draft & paint the wall with my face
so let's just see if we're on a wavelength
even 1 night stands are a commitment with me

& by the way you are significantly stronger than me
I can barely lift a glass of what you guys think is whisky
& if I make you laugh try not laugh right at me
cuz you might break a rib or loosen some of my teeth

but I got a pool at my place
& a 24 hour buffet
& if you're super good I might just let you touch my hot face

I’m a handsome boy

if you're a handsome boy put your hands in the air
if you're a handsome boy unlock the chains on your chair
if you're a handsome boy execute a stomp and a flip
if you're a handsome boy levitate for 2 and a half minutes
if you're a handsome boy give me a yeah with some feeling
if you're a handsome boy take seven steps on the ceiling
if you're a handsome boy don't age at all for 20 years
if you're a handsome boy get drunk on 1 & half beers
if you're a handsome boy perceive even slight fluctuations in the strength and locations of the planet's magnetized poles… I can't describe it I just know

I’m a handsome boy

Hot Air Balloon

do you wanna fight me in my hot air balloon
do you wanna fight me in my hot air balloon
do you wanna fight me in my hot air balloon
do you wanna fight me in my hot air balloon

do you wanna fight me in my hot air balloon
do you wanna fight me in my hot air balloon
do you wanna fight me in my hot air balloon
do you wanna fight me in my hot air balloon

do you wanna fight me in my hot air balloon
do you wanna fight me in my hot air balloon
do you wanna fight me in my hot air balloon
do you wanna fight me in my hot air balloon

we should fight, you & I
we should tumble in the sky
let’s punch each others eyes
as the fields & clouds roll by
we can float out to the sunset
we can kiss the waking moon
as we no holds barred rumble
in my big hot air balloon

no fighting style restricted
no laws of man apply
you’ll try to outmaneuver me
while my kicks & punches fly
as the birds glide just beneath us
a panorama greats us
we’ll sneak a look between jabs & hooks
in my big hot air balloon

do you wanna fight me in my hot air balloon
do you wanna fight me in my hot air balloon
do you wanna fight me in my hot air balloon
do you wanna fight me in my hot air balloon

do you wanna fight me in my hot air balloon
do you wanna fight me in my hot air balloon
do you wanna fight me in my hot air balloon
do you wanna fight me in my hot air balloon

I’ll punch your face you’ll punch mine
we’ll kick each other’s butts
in the sky y y y y
our exhausted limbs entwined
no technical KO
we go where ever the wind blows
and speaking of blows
we’ll be delivering those

in my big
in my big
in my big hot air balloon

do you wanna fight me in my hot air balloon
do you wanna fight me in my hot air balloon
do you wanna fight me in my hot air balloon
do you wanna fight me in my hot air balloon
Track Name: We Don't Eat
We Don’t Eat

we don't need a restaurant
to cook us a fancy feast
we don't need a grocery store
to sell us soups & meat
we don't need a farmer man
to grow us corn & wheat

we don't need a knife or fork
cuz we don't need to eat

I don't eat red meat
I don't eat white meat
I don't eat fish or frogs or snails

I don't eat shellfish
I don’t eat haggis
nothing with a face or a fin or a tail

I heard you're gluten free
well that applies to me
I’m also kosher & raw hardline vegan

i don't eat anything that knows
anything that grows
or anything that could conceivably be eaten

so yes sir
I concur
I’m pretty picky when it comes to food
so I’ll just have the chair I’m sitting on
this 4 star ambiance
& a little less of your attitude

cuz

we don't need a restaurant
to cook us a fancy feast
we don't need a grocery store
with deals that are hard to beat
we don't need a farmer man
so sell your land & move to the beach

we don't need a salad plate

cuz we don't need to eat

happy birthday to me
happy birthday to me
throw that cake in the garbage can
& throw the can out in the street

I repeat I don't eat
I don't need to feed myself
my pantry shelves are stocked with
fireworks road salt & magazines

& where the stove was I put a chest of drawers
& where the fridge was I put a dance floor

no I don't have an ounce of food in me
no I’m not just trying to get real skinny
yes I have had food & it is not for me
it made me feel bloated complacent & sleepy

but go on dull your mind with american cheese
drown your free will in fat oil & grease
listen to your stomach instead of your head
& let the government tell you that you need food to live

we don't need a hot dog stand
on the corner of any street
we don't need a B & B
so just point us to the single B
we don't need vitamins
cuz you know they'll just re-deplete

we don’t need dipping sauce
cuz we don’t need to eat

so next time you're hungry
tell this to your tummy
say you aren't the boss of me

think of the money you'll save
& the spare time you'll make
with your lunch hour completely free

the energy you're divesting
from chewing & digesting
& polishing your cutlery

can go to achieving
the things you believe in
& you can focus on living your dreams

(chorus)
Track Name: Iguana
Iguana

hey, man, you still got that iguana?

hey man how long’s it been
you still got that iguana
I’ve thought about ringing you up but I’ve been busy man
but sometime we oughta grab a
couple of drinks and get caught up
remember that time that i came up
& you showed me that iguana that you keep
in that little screen hutch
you still got that iguana?
what you doing for work now you’ve cleaned up
do iguanas just eat what you feed em
or can they catch their own bugs and eat em
do iguanas eat bugs are you still seeing
that same girl from before was it Gina
your folks doin all right can you leave a iguana alone
do they need love
could it sit on your lap and watch TV
how long do they live are they easy
does it run around the house freely
does it guard the place when you leave gee man
it’s been great catching up we should grab a drink sometime if you wanna
I think about you every time I think about iguanas

you see any of the old gang around town
do you still got that iguana
does the iguana have a name
do iguanas even come when you call em
how big do they grow
you still drive that 80s volvo
remember that time you drove me round cuz I couldn’t remember where I chained my bicycle
do they sell baby iguanas at any old regular pet store
or is it that thing where you put water on one & it sprouts like six more
that might have just been a movie
hey man you still got that iguana
any chance you’ve got change for 20 Wendy’s bucks on ya
how’s your brother doing man he was always some kind of legend
if you threw a little ball to your iguana do you think he would he catch it
it’s been real nice seeing you my man give all my love to Tanya
I think about you every time i think about iguanas

In my mind
the concept of iguanas and you are linked
so every time
I see one in a documentary or zoo
I think of you

hey man what’s the lifespan of an iguana
if you’re real good how you treat em
if you’re careful how you feed em
are they like fish do they get as big is wherever keep em
do iguanas lay eggs
are they like chickens with eggs
can you collect an iguana egg every morning for breakfast
do they get up on their hind legs ever & walk like t-rexes
are there discernible differences between iguana sexes
or does iguana culture force them into gendered directions
there’s just so many questions
hey man you still got that iguana
I think about you every time I think about iguanas
Track Name: Scary (featuring Ultra Pulvarize)
Scary
hey what are you doing
walking by
my house at midnight on a
sidewalk lit by
some dim streetlights
are you deaf dumb & blind
don't you know all the dangers we're surrounded by

strangers with clouded eyes
deranged neighbors & scoundrels high
on whatever has them out of their minds
it's on the news all the time
did you watch the news last night
did you see the thing on the news with the folks doing those crimes
i'm gonna guess you aren't watching the news enough
or maybe the planet you just landed here from is less rough

see there's threats everywhere you gotta look out for
& it's not just monsters & russia anymore

women, minorities, foreigners, teens
any group i can lump together collectively
all have this agenda against you & me
even though we're just trying to live peacefully

so I wear gloves on my hands for better punches
traps round my house in case they come in bunches
weapons scattered round strategically
in a pattern nobody can discern but me

I work out all day news turned up all the way
to prepare myself mentally for judgement day
and you're lucky I realized you were one of us
cuz I almost attacked you with my spiked nunchucks

see

everything is scary
except for me
everything is scary
except for me
everything is scary
except for me
we live in a word that is very scary

everything is scary
except for me
everything is scary
except for me
everything is scary
except for me
we live in a world that is very scary

let's say you're out walking in the woods by yourself
with no phone in your pocket to call for help
& let's say it's quiet but for trees slowly swaying
& let's say there's some ominous movie score playing

did I mention it's dark
did I mention your heart
is pounding so loud
that you can't hear the sound

of a beast approaching
wild & hungry
oh & let's say you're tied up
so you can't run away

your best shot is making it scared of you
so why not mention that you're human & what humans do
like explain the purpose of an atomic bomb
or read him the lyrics of that Soul Sister song

tell it we bred wolves into neutered little dogs
that wear collars that shock them if they escape our lawns
& get paraded around town naked on a leash while
we brag that they love us unconditionally

so hey play your cards right we won't cause your extinction
you could eat off the floor of my descendants kitchens
sounds psycho I know but there's no other way
earth's nonhuman creatures make it pretty unsafe

(chorus)

everything is so scary
we gotta keep our eyes open
we gotta keep our knives sharpened
we gotta be vigilant
& why not dig a pit with sharpened sticks
& cover it
with
foliage

MC ULTRA:
no one's scared of you except for you
no one's scared of me except for me

the universe is scary kids
about to get scarier
at this age I am aware
I probably should be hairier
life roller coaster host
scary phone voice 
pick tone to boast 
heavy armor layer coats
pad clad lads
gentlemen rap raise a ruckus
forget spiked nunchuckus
I’m talkin hair-brained hocus pocus

hide your hide
by wearing stuff on the outside
& hold your noses 
choking on air
cologne ghosts everywhere
smellin people that used to be there
perfume poltergeists

the news is on all the time 
watch it if you choose to worry
I say a walk and you scurry
disconnect the blue connector hurry

a starter kit will kill
toot in common wind 
and think it's skillet temp skill
rip a skeeter killer
spark wand thriller
all Howells Eve
happy Howell-ween
everything everything is so scary except for me

(chorus)

to be honest it's exhausting living like this
trying to stay prepared & alert & fit
my weapons polished, sharp & clean
today's outgoing warning on my voicemail machine

warpaint applied, vitals protected
all of my favorite news channels selected
stockpiling gas & gunpowder & flares
& feeding the mailmen trapped under my stairs

leave me alone
in my fortified home
the one place on earth that's an HD safe zone
quit clogging my radio with subversive thoughts
& provoking me through all the news that I watch

why can't it be more like when I was kid
when one hour of news was all we needed
but now it's on all the time so open your eyes
and listen to Howell Dawdy & Ultra Pulverize

(chorus)
Track Name: Louisville

while we’re at it i think we invented barbecue
& how about lasagna’s from here, let’s make that true too

our climate’s just right, we get all four seasons
& also 5 weekdays & 2 on the weekends
if you’re looking for a place above ground, highway adjacent
have I got a spot that meets those expectations

ooh baby what a thrill
livin our lives in Louisville

Papa John
Kimmet & Doug sing your favorite songs

ooh baby you know it’s true

my favorite 3 numbers are 502
we got Bardstown Road
and Falls City Beer
a park named for Mister Belvedere uh huh

that’s right we’re in the city of angels
the precipice from which civil society dangles
a health care hub & a trash food mecca
we can breed ya birth ya nurse ya & wreck ya

with alcohol cigarettes & fried chicken
cash your paycheck at the track & bet on 6 to win
tourists downtown slugger bats swingin
hoping a mob of teens don’t rob em on their way to 610

hoping there’s not a fee for rocks in that small batch bourbon
watching a ton of folks get punched at the Ali museum
there’s just a certain volatility to Louisville biz
but nobody’s a villain here cuz everyone is

ooh baby what a thrill
villians was a pun on Louisville
we got the Brown Hotel
Whiskey Row
the Thornton Mart on lower Brownsboro

but I don't care for St. Matthews

I just don’t really like St Matthews

Ooh baby what a thrill
livin our lives in Louisville
Track Name: Horseshoe Pit
Horseshoe Pit

peein in the horseshoe pit
peein in the horseshoe pit

peein in the horseshoe pit

well it’s party time at the drinkin hole
it’s me and all the boys
we’re cracking jokes & lightin smokes
we’re makin tons of noise

but it ain’t all just fun & games
once the main event begins
the horseshoe tournament kicks off
when the first wiz hits the pit

peein in the horseshoe pit
peein in the horseshoe pit
our patron saint Ann Heiserbusch
likes a pit dampened with wiz
we praise her with each throw
we strive to take the win
we crack a cold one
squirt a gold one
& then we throw again

dusting off these dirty shoes
let’s go another round
Ya hope to hear that post ring out
when ya hit that soggy ground

watch these flying horse’s shoes
as they glisten in the night
toss this boy another beer
the pit’s getting kinda dry

peein in the horseshoe pit
peein in the horseshoe pit
our patron saint Ann Heiserbusch

Track Name: Beautiful Love
Beautiful Love

Attention… will Howell Dawdy please report
to the microphone

I have moved earth with my hands
& I have danced on my feet
I have felt the cool peace of the shade
& I have toiled in the sun's heat
I've had money in my pocket
I've had drink in my cup
I have stood at the top of the mountain
& guess what it wasn't good enough

I have been the guy up at the front of the line who's first into the show
I have been privy to secrets & leaked bits of stuff that nobody knows
I could be the envy of every zen priest I'm so composed
when the road I'm traveling on leads me to another pot of gold

cuz I've got money in the bank already
a half full drink that i've half fully drank
& I'm ready for whatever comes to find me
cuz nothing in this world could still surprise me

a brand new suit? sure I'll take it
a car what's the make on it
a cabin for the weekend yeah
that sounds decent

but none of these things make life worth living
& all we need are the hearts that we're given &

guess what I don't need all this stuff
I don't need a house with its own zip code

guess what I don't need a robot doing all my chores & waking me up

I don't need suede gloves in case I get a parade & they need me to wave & it's kinda cold

guess what I don't need all this stuff

I don't need a thing that's not beautiful love

that’s not beautiful love


I have looked out into the evening sky & seen the sunset eclipsed by a butterfly

I've seen a shooting star reflected in the eye of a dove but I prefer to look at beautiful love

I've seen art at the Louvre, truth irrefutable - no thanks I'll take love that is beautiful

all the money in the world? Add it up & it's not worth as much as beautiful love

besides money is corruptive
love is productive
beautiful love is something you don't wanna fuss with
recession & fraud proof, worldwide & local
impossible to be commoditized by moguls

open source & free
easily assembled
no more than 3 ingredients on the label
you, beautiful love, & everybody else
shelf life is longer than the life of some shelf


take the coolest motorcycle that you've ever seen

paint job smoother than peaches and cream

purring like a lion cub falling asleep

cruising through the coastal air at 1000 feet

captured by a master who can perceive your dreams

painted on the ceiling of your own Sistine

on your private island on the Mediterrean

that's not beautiful love


there's no jewel that lies in wait in some undiscovered cave that can take the place

of beautiful love

there's no star out there in space hot enough to erase love's embrace

beautiful love

guitar!

there's nothing like beautiful love

that's why they call it beautiful love
Track Name: Summer Creams
Summer Creams

milkshakes, ice creams, frozen yogurt

all right, I got something to say
I’m gettin the word out
about summer creams

summer heat in the summer sun
summer time it has begin
we're hangin out & having fun
with our friends at summer destinations

like the park or the beach
or just out in the street under streetlights
jamming to the groove of the beat
you smell that summer air it's intoxicating
you feel that summer breeze it was worth the waiting

rest of the time, it's hot as heck
sweat dripping off of our faces and necks
we need something cold & refreshing & sweet
the perfect beverage to beat the heat

you mean water (nah)
soda (eugh)
purple gatorade in the big bottle (bleugh)
there's only one thing to drink when it's hot
& that's an ice cold cream with a big frothy top

summer creams all your beverages should be creamy in the summer (2x)

top down in the car, legs cut off our jeans
belly's sticking out full of summer creams
summer is hot with no chance of snow
so don't let your cream count get too low

& it isn't just beverages'll keep you straight
flag ice cream trucks to stay in shape
keep a spoon in your pocket & a straw in your shirt
condensed milk can for emergency purposes

I got rocky road dripping on my flip flop
I got buttermilk stains on my tank top
I got franny calling me from the bus stop
saying meet me for a date at the cream shop! (YEAH)

milkshake frappe salted caramel latte
May through June through fourth of July
I drink chocolate milk & soybean chai
July 5th till September ends

I’m sucking down vanilla bean and mocha blends
never get tired of a creamy drink
never gonna let my root beer float sink

summer creams all your beverages should be creamy in the summer (4x)

summer’s log day 81
this dairy shortage has me pretty bummed
they said too many folks were on the teat
& they ran outta milk & butter & cream

but I’ve got some old bailey's that I’m rationing
& you can kinda mix syrup with cottage cheese
it's been weeks since a milk delivery
& they still owe us ransom for milkman steve

I miss brain freeze & milk bubbles in my throat
my kingdom for a cow or a sheep or a goat
I’m feeling kinda week from a lack of cream
my core is overheating & I’m starting to steam

but in my dreams I’m on a beach with my feet in the sand
40 oz Kahlua milkshake in my hand
cream so dense I almost have to chew it
crazy straw big enough to suck a cherry through it

summer creams all your beverages should be creamy in the summer (8x)
Track Name: Because You're A Man
Because You’re A Man

when I was a young man my father he told me
you gotta listen to your ma
cuz she knows what's right what's good & what's true
& how folks should get along

but that doesn't mean you shouldn't listen to me
when it comes to having fun
he said you're old enough now let's go into town
grab our boys & a six pack of cold ones

as we sat round that old oak table
telling stories & cracking wise
I looked over to my old man
& learned a lesson in being a guy

& in between a hand of gin
papa pulled out a small round tin
with grease for the can that he held in his hand
so he could choke it down into him

he said:
women need to be women
oh & men got to be a man
so open that jaw son
& lube up that cold one
& swallow that entire full beer can

now it's been a few years & quite a few beers
& I’ve got sons of my own
they're too young to hork down even a red bull or a six ounce
but one day when they're a little more grown

i'll say do good in school & don't be no fool
mind your ma & don't expect nothing free
but come that old weekend man's gotta have his friends
& they've gotta get a little crazy

& I'll take my boys into town
grab some stone cold aluminum 12 ounce
a deck to play gin & that old rusty tin
with the grease that helps the cans go down

& when it comes time for them to consume
an entire can of ice cold brew
I hope they don't choke
& I hope that their throats
let that whole beer can straight through

I'll say
women need to be women
oh & men got to be a man
so open that mouth wide
& grease up that Coors Light
& swallow that entire full beer can

women need to be women
oh & men got to be a man
so open that jaw son
& lube up that cold one
& swallow that entire full beer can

swallow that beer can
because you're a man

I just got a call on my cellular phone from my ma
saying papa is gone
so i'm headed back home to bury the man
who taught me how to be a good & grown

but before i go I know what he'd want
I gotta round up all my boys
to choke down some brews say this ones for you
& papa I’m coming home soon

but please mister airport metal detector
I need you to understand
I don't have a gun, a bomb or a knife
I just swallowed half a dozen full beer cans

you see I’m a man

solo

women need to be women
oh & men got to be a man
so open that mouth wide
& lube up that Coors Light
& swallow that entire full beer can

women need to be women
oh & men got to be a man
so open that jaw son
& lube up that cold one
& swallow that entire full beer can

because you’re a man
