Track Name: West of a White House
west of a white house
(danylo-pfister)

ageless, faceless, gender neutral
culturally ambiguous adventure person

blew the f.c.d #3
flood waters rising in the g.u.e.

wish i saved if you know what i mean
there's a murder in the kitchen and a thief on the scene
a dragon and a troll and michael mckean
underground in the service of the queen
wish i saved when the sword turned blue
wizard of frobozz is on the loose

you are standing in an open field
west of a white house
doors boarded up
there's a mailbox here
want some rye
of course you do
who's like us
damn few
and they're all dead

wish i saved if you know what i mean
there's a murder in the kitchen and a thief on the scene
a dragon and a troll and michael mckean
underground in the service of the queen
wish i saved when the sword turned blue
flathead lucy's on the loose
says 'hello sailor, yeah you
turn off the light
eat me like a grue'

never forget who's the boss of you
me
i'm the boss of you
Track Name: Time Favors the Small
time favors the small
(danylo-volinic-lavalley)

back in the days
the days of dial up internet
sit by the minute
pay by the hour
watching and waiting
queueing and loading
on this wild ride
through superhighway town

tilt, baby, tilt, baby
drop, catch, pass
boatload of goats won't mow your grass
silly of me to fall in love with the game
every 5X playfield ends in a drain
roll call: controlled opposition
hit you with a different proposition
akrasia rocking the palladium
smoking like leyland at three rivers stadium

going boldly where many have been
give the odds to the gods and go all in
sinner of omission, commissioner banned
gumdrop passed out in the candyland
crunching algorithms like pistachios
pangeas, archipelagos
natural wonder- +4 faith
more culture than yogurt
seedier than grapes

setting the credit, vetting the fault
furious courier raiding in your vault
raiding your pantry, raiding spray
raiden back back front... ....
copasetic gentleman aesthetic
sugar so sweet ima wreck ya diabetic
richer than richie, lawdy lawlor
see me coming all the good girls holla
'oooh, you're so fine, i wanna have your baby'
and i say
'maybe'
smack it back, grab it with authority
no one agrees like the vast majority

i've knowed you since the summer
and now the pools are closed
schools are open

rented relief
respite from rote, lame bitterness
concrete and pennants
couches made of cows
sanguine peach
you got it til you lose it
on this wild ride
through superhighway town

savor the win
the points not uncontested
roll for charisma
tap it like land
nudging and bumping
reeling and rocking
on this wild ride
through superhighway town

que latisma!
Track Name: Better Rug
better rug
(danylo-pfister)

(french)
fast break it starts with some cheesesteaks
yards to rake and diners on tv
two fried eggs and beef kielbasa
weasel and the mole
think i've seen this one before, oh no
vacation paid buffet upgrade double dose mimosas
and the sweet sounds of pure gold
helps the old folks feel less old
but we're all going to die
someday we're going to die

LITTER BUG
watch where you disposing
QUITTER TUG
leave the barge in the ocean
CRITTER SMUG
yeaaaah, that's a nice dam
WITTY DOUG
ain't trying to be funny
SWEATER PUG
awwww, look at that puppy
BETTER RUG
really ties the room together

they're laying off softball teams
quashing nascent scenes
monetizing pocket screens
to mine your mind
cookie crumbs you leave behind
rodeo clowns and charity shows and
where's the cheese at..i don't know
familiar but it's fine
t-1 line from 1999
my love flies low, seeks deep, and disappears
like a 757 in a somerset field...

LITTER BUG
watch where you disposing
QUITTER TUG
leave the barge in the ocean
CRITTER SMUG
yeaaaah, that's a nice dam
WITTY DOUG
ain't trying to be funny
SWEATER PUG
awwww, look at that puppy
BETTER RUG
really ties the room together
PITY HUG
being nice to you, honey
GLITTER JUGS
being nice for the money
NEWER DRUG
huey lewis and the news
BITTER THUG
beefing turf with the mad kills
DEBTOR SLUG
ain't paying no slug bills
DEWERS MUG
drinking scotch from a mug
cause it's the only clean glass in the kitchen
Track Name: Jose Canseco
jose canseco
(danylo)

girl says 'what we doing today'
brother pulls out a baseball card
says cut my hair
like jose canseco
cut my hair
like jose canseco

get down party like kennywood
get thick quake the candlestick
bashful, full of bashing
shoot her in the face like a gorn when we smashing
crack the dome, road beef sauna
first base with madonna
get more booty than an intertube
hotter than a hot stove
more juice than a mango grove

errybody wants to slip one past
errybody wants to take one yard
errybody wants to be mr something-something

flying the wings of gibralter
altar bound
hallowed ground
cooperstown
flesh by the pound
the good interred
raised the boats about the piers
moved out left the chandeliers
blunt but i'm honest
depreciated like an '86 donruss
revered like paul
like paul the apostle
king of the bayside like ac slater
merge the great lakes
i'll explain it later

promised my mom i'd be the best
promised my mom i'd be the best
promised my mom i'd be the best

and i was

cut my hair
like jose canseco
cut my hair
like jose canseco
cut my hair
like jose canseco
cut my hair
like jose canseco

(i'll save your baby; i'll save your cat)
Track Name: Super Duper Happy One
super duper happy one
(may-danylo)

i wake up lying next to you
in my dreams
feet rest against the mirror and your
eyes dance all over me
we talk so casual but
this is not ordinary
then i wake up again
and you were just a friend
oh babe, you know i want some zzzzzz's...

your cheeks are flushed
your eyes recessive
i dig a girl who's creative and aggressive
and you
check all the boxes to
check out my boxers
we're in the waiting room
but we could be playing doctor
i'm down to hang
i don't got no expectations
i get my pick of any chick in the federation
so i
guess it's for best that we never got round to bonin'
but i woulda rocked your world and
made you waffles in the mornin'

so i best be going
you know i've got this work to do
when you find the woman who will always treat you true
oh babe, i hope she loves you like i do

loves you like i
la la la la loves you
la la la la loves you

Track Name: Halftime Snacks
halftime snacks
(danylo-emanuel)

don't bring me no halftime snacks
got the shot off and i took the ball home
don't give me no fake haystacks
got the jump off and i'm laying down low

today i'm gone
today i'm somewhere else
today i'm gone
but tomorrow
i'm all yours

autumn leaves from last autumn
staking claim to part of the yard
conceded by indifference and
a difficult, challenging slope
backlog for three lifetimes
little wild on a steam sale
terabytes of attic jams
books i ain't ever gonna get to read

today i'm gone
today i'm somewhere else
today i'm gone
but tomorrow
i'm all yours

altair y ezio
ezio y altair
altair y ezio
ezio y altair

don't bring me no halftime snacks
don't give me no halftime snacks
don't bring me no halftime snacks
got the shot off and i took the ball home
Track Name: Joysucker
joysucker
(danylo-volinic)

i ain't reading your goddamn emails
perfect is the enemy of the good
perfect is the enemy

we don't have to do it
let's just talk about doing it
we don't have to do it
let's just talk about doing it

joysucker
sucking the joy out
joysucker
suck my joy

perfect is the enemy
Track Name: My Oh My
my oh my
(pfister)

my oh my oh my oh my oh my oh my oh my
take a lie down on the grass and
listen to the sky
how the clouds float by
tangerines and flies
taj mahals and mandolins and
orcas riding roller skates
singing songs in portuguese
look into the crystal ball
tell me lovely lady
who's the fairest of them all

if you blink you'll miss the moments come
moments gone again
so sad to watch them disappear
if you blink you'll miss the moments come
moments gone again

my oh my oh my oh my oh
pull the plug on the radio
sing a song in any key
doesn't matter which
write a letter to your brother
burn it with your fancy lighter
watch the ashes floating down the river to the sea

if you blink you'll miss the moments come
moments gone again
so sad to watch them disappear
if you blink you'll miss the moments come
moments gone again
