about

"I could write some long winded paragraph with a bunch of adjectives that don't mean anything at the end of the day or I could just say... Hey here's eight tunes I wrote in my home, recorded in my basement with all the gear I could afford to at the time, using all the knowledge I had at my disposal with a few friends who were kind enough to add their talents to my music just because we fucking love to make music!" - Rock Johnson

Try it, it'll put hair on your chest!

Track Name: Ain't No Star
Ain't No Star
- R. Johnson

Impress me
Cause right now you don't
Spewing your
Made for radio, on TV bullshit son

Oh yeah won't you come sit down with me
Would you do it all for free?
Let me show you
Let me show ya what you don't know
Doesn't matter what they told you son
You ain't no star
No you ain't no star

Fool me
Cause right now you don't
Wear the latest fashion
Pose a picture
Selling songs you never wrote

Oh yeah won't you come sit down with me
Would you do it all for free?
Let me show ya
Let me show ya what you don't know
Doesn't matter what they told ya son
You ain't no star
No you ain't no star

Only for show
Only last for so long
Only all for show
Only all for show

Solo

Oh Yeah

Track Name: Anything At All
Anything At All
- Rock Johnson

Who you running from?
Why you living stoned?
Cast my shadow
Hides your own
A mistaken honor

This line's heavy
Dropping dead weight

This current company
Married to your misery
And believe me
I don't owe you anything at all

Damn right

Who'd you hear it from
Is it etched in stone?
Another bleeding heart
Beside your own
You've forsaken honor

This line's heavy
Dropping dead weight

This current company
Married to your misery
And believe me
I don't owe you anything at all

Solo

This line's heavy
Dropping dead weight

This current company
Married to your misery
And believe me
I don't owe you anything at all
At all
I don't owe you anything at all

Track Name: The World Outside
The World Outside
- Rock Johnson

Sometimes I hide a little bit
From the world outside
Just don't feel right
Sometimes I hide a lot of pain
From the world outside
Afraid they might see through it

It might be taking over
It might be taking over

Sometimes I fake a smile when I take a hit
From the world outside
Saving pride for spite
Sometimes I hate myself over it
Though the world outside
Would never hear of it

They might be taking over
They might be taking over

Sometimes I deem my self less fortunate
Than the world outside
But it never sticks
Most times I take the ball and run with it
Cause the world outside
Needs me to conquer it

I might be taking over
I might be taking over

Track Name: Empty Love
Empty Love
- Rock Johnson

You're tired of running
So you follow me from grace
Now I'm tangled in your ways
You're quick with the answers
But I'm questioning my faith
When you're talking two faced

I've seen this all before
And it don't end well

Don't give it away your empty love
I know where you lay you're empty love
Don't give it away your empty love
I know when you lay you're empty love

It's all in the timing
And what you have at stake
Dig very careful my grave
Attack like a cancer
Inside you chip away
From my only safe place

I've seen this all before
And it don't end well

Don't give it away your empty love
I know where you lay you're empty love
Don't give it away your empty love
I know when you lay you're empty love

Solo

I've seen this all before
And honey it don't end well
I've seen this all before
And honey and it... and it... and it don't end well

Don't give it away your empty love
I know where you lay you're empty love
Don't give it away your empty love
I know when you lay you're empty love
Don't give it away your empty love
I know where you lay you're empty love
Don't give it away your empty love
I know when you lay you're empty love

Track Name: Colorized
Colorized
- Rock Johnson

We're both standing waiting for
What's to happen we're not sure
Wide awake and staving bored
It holds off a little bit

Pass through time but lingering
Letting go but struggling
Finding space
Finding a little bit

But what if it comes down
What if comes down to me & you
But what if it comes down
What if it comes down to me & you

Colorized once now just faded
Tired, old, and totally wasted
I want to feel something new
Once alive love dearly belated
Parting gift left lonely with hatred
A part of me died with part of you

Weight of options smothering
Come across a wild escape
And we're leaving
Don't care a little bit

Guilt the gift you gave to me
Held it close now let it free
I see now I
Held back a little bit

So what if it comes down
What if it comes down to me & you
And what if comes down
What if it comes down to me and you

Colorized once now just faded
Tired, old, and totally wasted
I want to feel something new
Once alive love dearly belated
Parting gift left lonely with hatred
A part of me died with part of you
A part of me died with part of you
A part of me died with part of you

Track Name: Once
Once
- R. Johnson

Once,
We were so in love
With the way it was
Unknown to the way we are
The way we've become

Sometimes we complicate
And some things we throw away
And sometimes we throw away
The things that we complicate

Once,
A dream was to speculate
TV our learning place
Time was never in waste
Tell me why we've become this way

Sometimes we complicate
And some things we throw away
And sometimes we throw away
The things that we complicate

Solo

Sometimes we complicate
And some things we throw away
And sometimes we throw away
The things that we complicate
