Mental Physical Media sampler, 2016; Volume 2.

miss placed prose:

biding my time, tight squeeze
a little 2 late, 2 guess
a hint , is fair enough

1 is 2 little, 2 is not enuff, 3 may b the way 2 go
follow the script, reading b-tween the lines
long story short, there's no point 2 talk

pushed around, laid 2 waste
i'm the rapist u call therapist
in plain view, not so far fetched

under control, through con-promise
symbols & signals, 2 strike a chord
beware the bits & pieces, imminent reversal


released April 3, 2016

all tracks recorded @ indie 500 studios, astoria; ny.
all tracks mixed @ The Out of Control Room, astoria, ny.

Track Name: loop's qool - Tight Squeeze
windswept rain blows, the muse is feeling sick
bits drifting in a cinch, stringed beings
ordinary shell , dime a dozen incrementals
out of options, on the brink, ongoing concern.
biding my time, tight squeeze b-tween the inflexible
ill suited 4 a fit, given the situation
closer 2 the top, hidden files behind the wall
under the influence, out of touch around the clock
stretching the gap, pick ur poison in commotion
casual consequence, causal system in distress
in seclusion, intrinsic value; matter of fact
won't u level with me, there's nothing left 2 hide.
Track Name: Martian from Venus - A Little 2 Late
it's a little 2 late, 2 guess, y won't u stay?
it's a little 2 late, 2 think... let's take a chance.
gentle mist , fleeting breeze
swaying loose , across the street
cruising through the maddenin' crowd
now i know , she won't let us down
3 ways 2 score, 1 ride 2 get along
4get about the str8 & narrow minded
on this trip, come with me
taste the paint under neat
c u making it, below deck
2 early 2 tell, if u'd like the mess
let it go with the flow
i'll keep on pushin' without a word.

Track Name: Pseudo American - Fair Enough
self centered, looking 4 some common ground
ever elusive key, minor spin b4 breakin' out
of a progressive stripe, swinging b-tween 7 & 9
pairing 4 a nip in the bud, throwing the towel in style
right on top of it all, 4get about the silt @ the core
in the big scheme of things, a little hint is fair enough
taking a closer look, trying 2 make up the lay of the land
no # turns or flat tires, caged wildlife ready 2 emerge
free rein 2 play, if u cut both ways i'm game
beg, borrow or even steal, bite ur lips in service of this thrill
is good 2 know, then wait 4 the next shoe 2 drop
the more we talk the less we'll hear about the lost
& so the story goes...
Track Name: Hecktor & The Messin'gers - 123
when 1 is 2 little
& 2 is not enuff
3 may b the way 2 go
is that...what we r looking 4?
sometimes is hard
2 realize i'm not the only 1
given the chance...
we can always venture a 2nd guest
with this many options
it won't b ez 2 make up ur mind
@ a glance, quite a catch
so nice & up 4 grabs
looking good can b ok.
i know it seems 2 complicated
acting cool doing what it takes
it's only a matter of time
Track Name: loop's qool - Follow The Script
it took awhile, 2 make it this far
across magnetic fields, beyond the stop sign
follow the script , reading between the lines
as the plot evolves; cueing 4 clues 2 fill the blanks
follow the script, seeing through the lies
as the tale unfolds, searching 4 ways 2 unwind
doing this 4 so long, coming of age on the run
searching 4 relief, avoidance through approach
pushing the envelope, in due respect... what matters most
connecting the dots, sourcing the code.
xpressing an interest, silent partners in kind
relieving the impulse, xausting the tap
Track Name: Long Story Short
won't say a word, everybody already knows
put on display, from behind closed doors
bending the rules, over the edge keeping score
long story short, there's no point...2 talk
cutting it down 2 size, while taking the time
drifting away, every little chance 4 change.
out of sorts, no sweet tale 4 an alibi
leaving on a whim, on the street making strides
Track Name: Pseudo American - Laid 2 Waste
how 2 describe, the method 2 this madness?
1 step ahead, 2 clicks b-hind, 4th quarters 4 change!
eco systems, of... inconsistency
foul play, learning 2 make the same mistakes again .
losing ground, while taking names
middle finger on display, pushed around & laid 2 waste.
moving within range, take over target
dully noted minor hint, c through it & pull the string
unrelated, undetermined time & place
connecting the dots, no chance 2 2nd guess
inb-tween, lost 4 words & set adrift
played by the hand that turns the tricks
major glitch, off the grid ;
doing ur best, 2 get a grip
Track Name: Absent Minder - Therapist
i'm the rapist u call the therapist
the 1 who makes u 2 talk ( 2 make u sick )
about the things u r ( if u can take it )
2 ashamed 2 fess up ( i'm on it with the stick )
a lot 2 prescribe, any color u like
it won't let the pain go away,,,
just linger
there 4 awhile

sitting in silence
watching u strip ur self bare
i know u'll like 2 trust me
is obvious, i could care less
once in a blu moon
a hint of a br8kthru
just a glimmer 2 feast my eyes
c'ing u br8kin' thru

we made some headway
after a few left turns
i can tell u r afraid 2 stop
maybe ...this is all u've got
u know me well enuff
2 still think, u need me
when reality bites
i'm just another parasite

someday soon u will
wake up and smell the stink
we played tag.
& u were left ...missing the mark.

Track Name: loop's qool - Far Fetched
it will hit u, the moment u set foot in the room
spinning around the clock, still life shrink wrap
feel the power through the hands b-hind the scene
can't help urself, part of the hole; about 2 make ends meet
in plain view, heavenly bodies working up a sweat
southeast, northwest; not so far fetched
plain & simple, let's get 2gether & mingle
show me what u got, we may make it count
release me, from this framework of guilt
lost 4 words, fear of falling; in-between
2 get a handle, 4 different ways
out of the gate, silent scream in disarray
uneven flow, busting @ the seams
missing pieces, chomping @ the bit.

Track Name: Martian from Venus - Under Control
another believer
some kind of perceiver
there's something amiss
can't put ur finger on the sleeve
under control through con-promise
trying 2 get a grip, just b4 the slide
pressure drop,
who's 2 make it stop
take the time 2 toe the line
c the posting on the wall.
there's nothing left
2 take out 4 a keepsake
no use 2 guess, time off request
friendly fire @ the gate
this is not the way
is was supposed 2 b
is this the place?
where the road ...
led us 2 b-lieve
Track Name: Pseudo American - Symbols & Signals
on display, major spanner in the works
minor hint , triage 4 a spot
inverted curves, on reversal double take
shakin' the 3, setting the leash to the cage
symbols & signals, 2 strike a chord
3rd time's the charm, @ the lowest point.
doing ur thing, diminishing returns
augmented aggravation, taking turns
4gotten c-quence of events
aiming higher, hangin' by a thread
throwing a fit, into the groove
a vamp inspired, 2 fuel the fire,
through with the junk, out of this funk
scratch the surface, as u catch my fall
