Emily Wells is a performer, producer, singer and composer known for her varied use of classical and modern instrumentation as well as her deft approach to live sampling at shows. Classically trained as a violinist, she also plays drums, keys, beat machines and whatever else she can fit in her road case.

Born to a music minister in Amarillo, Texas, Wells began learning violin at 4 at a community college. The family later moved to Indianapolis, where she discovered Bob Dylan, Nina Simone and Biggie Smalls and gradually moved from the Suzuki method to songwriting, guitars and home recording. Releasing her own music from a young age, Wells learned to keep her work close, and toured independently while developing her palate and performance across the U.S. It was in a humble garage studio in Los Angeles that Wells' recorded her 2008 breakthrough, The Symphonies: Dreams Memories & Parties, picking up praise from sources as varied as NPR and SPIN, who compared her to "a feral, streetwise Nina Simone."

Three years later, Wells returns with Mama, a collection of songs as richly hued as ever, but imbued with a newfound warmth no doubt owing to the space it was conceived in. Wells rented a tiny cabin on a Topanga Canyon horse ranch and went to work, producing Mama and playing most of the instruments herself (with a little help from longtime touring companions, drummer Sam Halterman and bassist Joey Reina). She recorded the raw tracks to tape without punch-ins or loops, often in one take. In contrast to The Symphonies, these songs are less conceptual and experimental in both sound and content, and more traditional and universal in structure and the studies of love and grief. 2012 will find Wells touring behind Mama, her first release for Partisan Records, and preparing for the release of Pillowfight, her long whispered-about collaboration with legendary producer Dan The Automator.

The Personification Of Kathe Kollowitz

Today a great wave passed over me
Ate me whole and alive
Sadness which gives no mercy
And I let him in right away this time

I accepted his warm hands as if they were my own
Wrap around my cold little heart and try to get ahold
And I accepted his warm hands around my cold little waist and hold me
'Cause at least it was something, yeah, you were something to me

What do you say to sadness, that is comes knocking
I always let his hard ass in, just to toy with my cold little arms
And make love to me, in a way only sadness can, can
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Don't think I'm not thinking about all this
I don't even know what to say to myself these days
And sometimes I just want to let you in
I could give you the full tour of this hollow heart of mine
You'd find out rather quickly that I am
Rather empty these days

Sometimes I just want to let you love me
You could take on that great big feat
Then maybe you'd realize
Yeah maybe you'd realize that
Sometimes I just want to fuck you
And leave you begging me for mercy
You begging me for mercy

What do you say to sadness, that is comes knocking
I always let his hard ass in just to toy with my cold little arms
And make love to me, in a way only sadness can

What do you say to sadness, that is comes knocking
I always let her hard ass in just to toy with my cold little arms
And make love to me, in a way only sadness can

Black And Blue

What did I do to be so black and blue
Oh what did I do to be so black and blue
What did I do to be so black and blue
Loving you, loving you

Had a dream last night
In it a bird came singing at my window
Said: "Girl, I love to sing for you, but
If you don't like the way I play
You can just go away, go away (go away)
From my window, from my window (go away), from my window"

What did I do to be so black and blue
Oh what did I do to be so black and blue
What did I do to be so black and blue
Loving you, loving you
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Had a dream last night (dream last night)
And I feel (last night)
Dreams wake me, dreams make me come around
To unclear a part of you
Get cold from this open window
(Laughter is from this black bird singing)

Which side are you on
Which side are you on
Which side are you on
Which side of the music
Which side of the music
Like music
Like music
Like music

What did I do to be so black and blue
What did I do to be so black and blue
What did I do to be so black and blue
Loving you, loving you

Black and blue
Black and blue
Black and blue
Black and blue

What did I do to be so black and blue
What did I do to be so black and blue
What did I do to be so black and blue
Loving you, loving you

Black and blue

Loving you
Loving you
(What did I do)

Well I'm black and blue

Well I'm loving you
Well I'm loving you

Oh black and blue

Loving you

Loving you

Teach Me

Bring your pretty little head, don't worry
Bring all the love you never knew you had
I'll gather all the same and meet you
Back again where all has been had

Teach me lover and I will learn
I will forget and then I'll learn again
Teach me lover, I will stumble I will fall
I will get up and fall right back down again

Swing low, swing low
Swing low, swing low

The outside whispers and children scream
Save your screams for bloody murder and for me
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Teach me lover, and I will learn
I will forget and then I'll learn again
Teach me lover, I will stumble I will fall
I will get up and fall right back down again
Right back down again

Loving loves the healing loving hurts so bad
Gets under my skin
Gets under my skin

Loving loves the healing loving hurts so bad
Gets under my skin

Teach me lover, and I will learn

I will get up and fall right back down again
Right back down again, right back down again

Swing low, swing low

Orchard

The past is prophetic; some days I am poetic.
Some days I know the rules, some days I play with them.
I am the orchard and the tree; I am my own worst enemy.
Jump start my lungs, kick the lever. I've gotten way too clever.
I've gotten way too…clever...
The past is poetic; some days I am pathetic.

Some days I know the rules, some days I play by them.
I am the orchard and the tree; I am my own worst enemy.
Jump start my lungs, kick the lever. I've gotten way too clever.
I've gotten way too clever. I've gotten way too clever…
The day my childhood died, of old age and a broken leg.
I stayed awake, ate my mistakes, recalled an ever after.

Live.
Live laughing laughter.
Live…Live laughing laughter.
Live…Live laughing laughter.

I am the orchard and the tree; I am my own worst enemy.
Jump start my lungs, kick the lever. I've gotten way too clever.
I've gotten way too…clever.
I've gotten…I've gotten way too clever…
Clever…I've gotten way too clever.
I've gotten…way too…clever.

E.E. Cummings

E.E. Cummings, put it there
Stormy falls loneliness
Underneath the bed remains much grieve

I feel like zipping there
I want the blood inside
I want to change smoke
You've gotta drive me to the hospital

I wanna relieve six
I wanna be best friends with ices
I want imagination without drugs
Fuck, sex without love

I got no such eye
I got no home
I got no loving
'Cause I'm on the run
Yes, I'm on the run
Still I'm on the run

Lost my reputation
somewhere in globulin
I want smuggling
Good fortune
Across all my borders

I leave for free by the ocean
It was there I lost my way
It was there I find my way

Oh I scribbling full
Yes we'll be ridiculed
I'm rattling my own bed press

There's a big sale in the middle of the war
There's a big sale in the middle of the war

Is furniture decoration
I'm heading for the train station

I got no such eye
I got no home
I got no loving
'Cause I'm on the run
Yes, I'm on the run
Still I'm on the run

I got no such eye
I got no home
I got no loving
'Cause I'm on the run
Yes, I'm on the run
Still I'm on the run

I got no such eye
I got no home
I got no loving
'Cause I'm on the run

Life As A Dream

When the heat stroke hits our city
Cryin through the corridor
And the desert falls down all upon us
No one here cares if God is

Our sanely ways go down the toilet
We float upstream in a flimsy lifeboat
Born we live, go through the trapdoor
Oh my God, it's to die for

My heart, my heart beats all a flutter
My head, my head of murk and clutter
It's time I talk, I talk in English
She says, she says that life is like a dream

Yesterday was a big news day
All things going broken
The kind of news that leaves you screaming
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
The whinin on the radio
Ladies livin in limbo
Tomorrow she'll steal the grocery money
Instead of driving in the river

Suicides can sometimes backfire
So can crowded helicopters
Imploded plans to free the world
For something that don't look a thing like freedom

My heart, my heart beats all a flutter
My head, my head of murk and clutter
It's time I talk, I talk in English
She says, she says that life is like a dream

And one day, she's gonna wake up
She's gonna wake up and she's gonna be free
She's gonna wake up
She's gonna wake up
She's gonna wake up
She's gonna be free

Merrily merrily merrily merr
Merrily merrily merrily merr
Merrily merrily merrily merr
Life is but a

Goodbye

Fresh with exhaustion down in warm grass
With the birds calling out, I drifted in visions
While in the backroom of the blue shuttered house
The old men they died, with the birds calling out

For six days he lay
talking less, talking less
Fighting with the will
The fiercest warrior would embarrass

Like a page, like a page
We did turn, we did turn him
Turn him while he lay
I learned, I did learn
Of the spirit of a man
He will yearn till that very last day
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Like a page, like a page
He will yearn, he will yearn
Into his mother's arms he'll return

I sat by his side, callin to sleep
Singing hems I'd known as a child
Shutting his eyes, a single tear did slide
To dry on his cheek in the morning

Morning did break, like it was calling his name
And there we were all saying goodbye
Fresh from my wounds, I stood up and bled
And there, I gave him away

Like a page, like a page
We did turn, we did turn him
Turn him while he lay
I learned, I did learn
Of the spirit of a man
He will yearn till that very last day

Like a page, like a page
He will yearn, he will yearn
Into his mother's arms he'll return

Beautiful Sleepyhead & the Laughing Yaks

Mt. Washington

Before we got out
I had my doubts
But walking around in the middle of the town
Freedom can be fun

Tell me all that wakes you wise
Forget the mortgage and the end of time
We'll blend together like bleeding lips
And trust that death'll be our dying wish
Come on over to the dark side
I'll keep it warm

My love, don't you worry
I got you in my arms

So we got out
First thing that we did was hit the hill top
To gaze upon the city that had given us birth
And listen to the sound of a baby's crying
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
It all starts somewhere
It all starts somewhere

And once the sun had left the autumn sky
And the laughing of the children had gone inside
We wandered through the shadows of the tall streetlights
And remembered that it all ends somewhere

It all ends somewhere
It all ends somewhere

Tell me all that wakes you wise
Forget the mortgage and the end of time
We'll blend together like bleeding lips
And trust that death'll be our dying wish

Come on over to the dark side
I'll keep it warm

My love, don't you worry
I got you in my arms

My time keeps floating away

My love
Don't you worry
I got you in my arms

50 Year Love Affair

Hear you, talking to me
Talking to me like a dissonant chord
In a minor key on your buffalo strings
All hand tuned
To the ice cream man and a symphony

Been about, been about fifty years
Even four hundred fifty two
I could've loved you longer
Could've loved you blue

Our friends have all made their own way
Some are gone, some are here to stay
The boy's all grown we heard from him today
And your green eyes are looking at me
Yeah your gray eyes are just trying to see
Just trying to see
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Hear me
Talking to you, talking to you
Another summer come
Like a bucket of rain and the daily news
I got a story
Of a couple of lovers who made it through

Been about, been about fifty years
Even four hundred fifty two
I could've loved you longer
Could've loved you blue
I loved you blue

Our friends have all made their own way
Some are gone, some are here to stay
The boy's all grown we heard from him today
And your green eyes are looking at me
Yeah your gray eyes are just trying to see
Just trying to see

Pretty little pockets they are full
Of every little thing I ever gave to you and I love it
Well you gave to me like a giving tree
Fruit so sweet I go swinging free on your branches

Look at the time
Are you look, look, looking at the season
Just about dawn baby soon we'll be leaving

Been about, been about fifty years
Even four hundred fifty two
We go on living 'cause we don't know what else to do

Fountain Of Youth

Racked my brain, boy was it loud
The clouds spoke to me, and we all grew down
Our roots took hold of the cracks in the ground
And the sidewalks, rose up to greet me

Hello, hello
Pleased to meet you
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Had I been awake, all of that time
Big red line across your soul
Blood running out like a funeral
I've seen the look of your eyes
How can I soothe
Blood running out
Like a fountain of youth

Living alone, the tenements are full
Of people in their bedclothes under disappointment's rule
Talking to their TVs, yeah, the pictures they talk a back
Lost somewhere in make believe with the world upon their backs

Hello, hello
Pleased to meet you

I'm a sailor on your open book
Though you write it down in code
You're a language I hope someday to know

Had I been awake, all of that time
Big red line across your soul
Blood running out like a funeral
I've seen the look of your eyes
How can I soothe
Blood running out
Like a fountain of youth

Waltz Of The Dearly Beloved

You're my desert
The line between the sky
And where the world gets solid
And willing to divide

I corner you in the bedroom
I find you at the sink
I picture you in the morning
I reach for you in my sleep

I was in love
With the sky it's like a drug
I was in love
With my windshield at twilight

In the back room of my memory
Lives a small boy stocking shelves
Of numbered periodicals
And the dreams I don't write down

I got a typist on the bottle
My stock boy only twelve
And dozing in the showroom
My many other selves
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I was love with the sound of it all
I was in love, with not knowing, anything at all

I was in love, with the sky it's quite a high
I was in love, with my winshield at twilight
I, I was love with the sound of it all
I was in love, with not knowing, anything at all

Big Love Lullaby

I got a love so big
Can you believe it
I got a love so lucky
I could never take for granted

Such a sweet darling
With a good heart
Such a sweet darling
With a brave mind

You've got the world in your hands
Go running with it
Bring 'em your joy
Bring 'em your brilliance
Though they don't deserve it

I got a love like a lullaby
It can sing me to sleep at night
I got a love so righteous
So righteous and innocent
I got a love like a joy ride
And the stereo, just might carry you home
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Such a sweet darling
With a good heart
Such a sweet darling
With a brave mind

You've got the world in your hands
Go running with it
Bring 'em your joy
Bring 'em your brilliance
Though they don't deserve it
Though they don't deserve it
Though they don't deserve it

Supermarket

Would you, would you carry me
With blistered feet
How would I ever thank you

And somewhere
In the middle of the river
You'd have to let me go
Even though

No one ever taught me
How to swim up stream
I could just go with the flow
And meet you in a barrel of laughs somewhere below
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
You speak
You speak soft and low
You got a way with words
I'll never tire

And somewhere
In the middle of the night
You love me soft and slow
I'll never tire of your sneaky smile

I'll meet you in a barrel of laughs below
If you ever lose your way
Well I'll meet you in the corner of the supermarket
And carry you home
I'll carry you home

Tisis Momar

What do you do
With eyes like that
What do you do
With a mouth like that
What do you do
With hands like that
Will you touch me all over

What do you do
With a sky like that
All dressed in blue
Longing for the night to come back
What'll you do
When I wrap you up and I touch you all over

I'm not the kind of girl to go running around
I got what I need
I'm not the kind of girl to go giving in out
I save my loving for you, for you, for you

You come to bed, when you're ready to love me
I'm all yours, like the light through the window
There's your voice, and your head on my pillow
When you touch me all over
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
How shall I say
The name of my lover
I think I'll say it
Over and over
When you touch me, will you touch me
Oh won't you touch me

I'm not the kind of girl to go running around
I got what I need
I'm not the kind of girl to go giving in out
I save my loving for you, for you, for you

Oh My God I Miss You

I, I'm a thinking girl
Who never considered God
Never, in the sense you see
Considered him logically

So what do you do when you whittle him down
To nothing but a stone in the barren ground
What do you do when you whittle him down
To nothing but a memory from your hometown

I go wild
With possibility
I go wild
With my fragility
Oh but there's something in the stone
There's something I just know, I just know

Growing up, there was a lot of praising
A lot of singing to an empty heaven
Growing up, there's a lot of judging
Yeah they could never get enough
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
So what do you do when you whittle him down
To a way to win the white house now he's nothing but a clown
What do you do when you whittle him down
To your ticket into heaven with your bombs strapped down

I go wild, with fury
I go wild, with insecurity
Oh but there's something in the stone
There's something I just know, I just know

Plant a little seed in a baby
It's gonna grow, grow, grow
Plant a little seed in a baby girl
it's sure to grow, it's sure to grow
Well you plant a little seed in me
And it's growing, growing, growing like a weed
They sure did water me daily
'Cause fear's something I can eat

I gotta take it up
I gotta take it up
I gotta take it up
With the ones I love

My Tin Car

I got a car it's made of tin
Nobody knows what shape it's in
But I'd like to take you for a ride

When we go, well I'll drive real slow
When the world wizzes by I want you to know
I want you to know it

How'd you ever know how to hurt me
How'd you ever know how to love
How'd you ever get so wild
How'd you ever get so tough

So how about it you ready to go
We'll ride through the night to your rock'n roll tapes
And hey, will you be singing
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I know, I know we're all made of dust
But in the meantime I really feel so much
I mean really
I feel something
I mean really

How'd you ever know how to hurt me
How'd you ever know how to love
How'd you ever get so wild
How'd you ever get so tough

How'd you ever know how to hurt me
How'd you ever know how to love
How'd you ever get so wild
How'd you ever get so tough

View From A Blind Eye

It's all over the news
Another roadside suicide
Another hotel too
Another public place
Another mother's face

I can't see, I can't look, I can't look
But I'm greedy with my freedom
On our heads, on our heads
The blood's flowing, we go without looking, but not knowing

In my hands, in my hands, in my hands
Yeah, your loss is my loss
Even without my looking, ah my looking

Around and around and around
Calling it, calling it out
Way past ripe into rotten
Spoil no longer, no longer

It's gotten into the air
Yeah, the smell of death is everywhere
It creeps across the ocean
Like a grease fire
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
It comes pouring down on the crops and the ground
And all through the town it whispers
The names of the ones who have gone before
By the hands of the bombs and the guns and the war

I can't see, I can't look, I can't look
But I'm greedy with my freedom
It's time
We start looking

Around and around and around
Calling it, calling it out
Way past ripe into rotten
Spoil no longer, no longer

1000 Years War

Ah when the rains came
The streets filled up like rivers
And we floated down like they were our own
Our toxic lungs, oblivious to the sun
We were only, inspired by babies

Some nights it was hard, so hard to breathe
In spite of it all, we woke up every morning
In spite of it all, in spite of it all, we woke up everyday
Walkin around, so happy and gay

There, there on the hill
A man came bearing tidings
With a gun, and a grim look on his face

He said, "I crossed the river
I heard what they had to say
And there's no telling when we'll see the end"

I looked at him blankly, I said
"I don't understand my friend" he said
"Thousands of years and we're only a few days in"
Thousands of years, thousands of years
And we're only a few days in
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
In spite of it all, I wake up every morning
In spite of it all, in spite of it all
He said "I wake up everyday
I wake up cause there's no other way"

I thought it was hard
Seeing the man with the earnest face
But there on the hill, someone's carrying water

A little boy with a limp
A mother who's been grieving, grieving ever since
Grieving ever since, grieving ever since
Grieving ever since she can remember

In spite of it all, in spite of it all
They wake up every morning
In spite of it all, they wake up everyday

So many flags in the sand
Blue and white, greens yellows and reds
Don't forget the red white and blue

What are you fighting for
Fighting for a promised land
Wandering around in the desert sands

When will it ever end
When will it ever end
More and more people, never, ever more land

In spite of it all, in spite of it all
You keep on shooting your guns
Dropping your bombs, killing anyone

In spite of it all, in spite of it all
You wake up every morning
In spite of it all, you wake up everyday

Dr. Hubris And His Vile Of Turpentine

Well you had it all along
Some days you still don't know you got it
Singing songs to the middle of the bottle
A little drunk, not nearly drunk enough
But you're falling down, down, anyhow

Children they will come and go
Always learning, how to be adults
But they get it down, down, somehow
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
In the middle of your pride
A crying hole the size of lot forty nine
Standing inside
Dr. Hubris with his vile of turpentine
And pours it down, down
Your aching throat of lies
Well you keep it down, down
With some sugar and some time

By the time you get to San Narcisco
You still won't have a clue
Crying in your hat
Over something that was never owed to you
But got it down, down, anyhow

Well you had it all along
Just remember that you got it
Singing songs and you're singing songs
Just remember that you had it all along
Yeah you got it down, down, somehow

Oh, my love
In the barrel of a gun
We're the girl girl girls
With the golden son

Oh, my love
Nothing's gonna stop us now
Except the long long lonely

Nothing's gonna stop us now
Except the long long lonely

Nothing's gonna stop us now
Not the long long lonely
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Oh, my love
Oh, my love
Oh, my love
Oh, my love

Nothing's gonna stop us now
Nothing's gonna stop us now
Nothing's gonna stop us now
Nothing's gonna stop us now

Symphony 2 & The Click Boom Boom

Hey little fiddle got a ride from the ransom child little fiddle got a ride
Took me out to the old truck yard with a prairie on my right and the ocean tide
Long long ago when the sky opened up and the choir sang just like a child
I had a place where I went to hide with the tall grasshoppers and my old friend time

Boom boom, a click boom boom
Boom boom boom, fantastic
Boom boom, a click boom boom
Boom boom boom, fantastic

Back to my humble story little one get her wish little one get her wish
Played it just like a knock on the chin well I played it just like a violin
Synesthesia tastes just like a rainstorm, hears like a lover's kiss
Never told you but I know that I owe you, I owe you all of this

Boom boom, a click boom boom
Boom boom boom, fantastic
Boom boom, a click boom boom
Boom boom boom, fantastic
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Boom boom, a click boom boom
Boom boom boom, fantastic
Boom boom

"Regarde, viens regarde
C'est très bien il y a des poissons"

Symphony 3: The Story

(featuring Count Bass D)

Hey hey, you never never know
Hey hey hey, you never never know
Hey hey hey, you never never know
Hey hey hey, you never you never know...

I was just a shortie wanna make some sound
Never knew I had it goin round and round
So I learned to play a little bit of violin
But most of all I learned how to listen

Round about 13 I got real bold
Made a little tape and that tape I sold
Recorded in the basement of some shady guys
So I had to tell 'em, fuck you very much and bye bye
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Then came Epic, they really tried to sell it
You'll be rich and famous if you only make a record
That has a lot of fluff, and don't forget the hooks
Babe just stick with us, and they'll be writing books

I couldn't do it so I headed for the coast
homeless and remote, I learned how to float
Then I found my love and the one I call my son
We live like forever has only just begun

Ah, ah, you never never know
Ah, ah, ah, you never you never know
Ah, ah, you never never know
Ah, ah, ah, you never you never know

(Count Bass D's verse)
Lost on a teenage sea wound up in Tennessee
Lost on a teenage see wound up in (glory)
Free I landed on my feet thanks to beats
Free I landed on my feet thanks to (glory)

Now here is something you were not told
Dwight Spitz cannot be pigeonholed
Divine Miss Em Wells, a story she cleverly tells
Hillbillies vs. the business of Beverly Hills

Another concept we all must ponder
Absence of genre makes the art grow fonder

Ah, ah, you never never know
Ah, ah, ah, you never you never know
Ah, ah, you never never know
Ah, ah, ah, you never you never know...

Symphony 4: America's Mercy War

Mercy, have mercy on me
America, you won't get no mercy
Mercy, have mercy on me
America, do you believe in mercy

Penance, I got a penance
But I got no God
So I won't get no mercy
Money, just makes you hungry
America, there's your god
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Mercy, have mercy on me
America, you won't get no mercy
Mercy, have mercy on me
America, you won't get no mercy

I'm a lover like no other
Know how to get down on my knees, begging
Till the morning sings

Even if I board your ship
Saunter up with a swollen lip
Bleary eyed and talkin' shit
Easily we could lose our grip

So mercy, mercy
Tell the whole world your wide story
Mercy mercy, here's another allegory
Mercy mercy, Lord Lord have mercy
Mercy mercy, Lord Lord have mercy...

Mercy, have mercy on me
America, do you believe in mercy
Mercy, have mercy on me
America, you won't get no mercy

Symphony 5 Was A Surprise

Don't want to go to sleep tonight
'Cause I don't think I'll survive
Without symphony, number five

Don't want to go to sleep tonight
'Cause I don't think I'll survive
Without symphony, number five

Number five you were on my mind
For three days and three nights
Never knew I had it coming
I laid down in the street for you
Taught the neighborhood how to creep for you
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Said a few things, lovin' lovin' life
Set aside my pride and my strife
Then I got up and I went to school
Practiced till my fingers turned a shade of blue
Learned how to love it, even when I failed
Though I'll admit it, I railed
Yeah, there were days
Throwing up my hands like a woman on plane
Coming down, screaming down, running like rain

Don't want to go to sleep tonight
'Cause I don't think I'll survive
Without symphony, number five

Don't want to go to sleep tonight
'Cause I don't think I'll survive
Without symphony, number five

Symphony 6: Fair Thee Well & The Requiem Mix

Fair thee well and the requiem mix
I got a loan shark and a quick fix
For those I left behind
In a suit case of fireflies

Find you, I wanna treat you right
Never leave you begging and crying
Coming down the mountain in a wet carriage
Full speed like a spent marriage
I got more than enough to keep me whole
For once I'm not slightly out of control

Got crazy dreams when it breaks morning
Everyday, a requiem
These morning dreams are just like memories
Late night, starring through the trees
I got words for this and the way it fits
It's all about the light and the sound around it
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Fair thee well and the requiem mix
I got a feather bed and a couple of tricks
For those I left behind
For those I left behind
For those I left behind

Fair thee, fair thee
Fair thee, fair thee
Fair thee, fair thee well...

Fair thee well and the requiem mix
I got a feather bed and a couple of tricks
For those I left behind
For those I left behind
For those I left behind

Fair thee, fair thee well...

Symphony 8 & The Canary's Last Take

Where could we ever go
Where the party's all we know
'Cause this little light
Oh it's gonna shine

Yeah where could we ever go
'Cause I got a long love, of life
Yeah I got a long love, of life

This life's all I got
Gonna give it more than one chance
I get opinionated when it comes to an avalanche
Wanna see my baby dance, never feel he can't
Needs more than a few trees, needs a summer breeze
Needs more than a little air to breathe
Real sweet, with a mean streak
Needs more than blood to feed the soil
Can't keep feedin' baby on that motor oil
Or the sound of the gun fire
'Cause it's wicked and it's wild
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Where could we ever go
Where the party's all we know
'Cause this little light
Oh it's gonna shine

Yeah where could we ever go
'Cause I got a long love, of life
Yeah I got a long love, of life

More time, they keep saying more time
Like time's some sort of coalmine dove
But Canary's barely breathing
That little bird is wheezing, singing
"What we really need is love
What we really need is love"
Love, love, love, love

Where could we ever go
Where the party's all we know
'Cause this little light
Oh it's gonna shine

And where could we ever go
'Cause I got a long love, of life
Yeah I got a long love, of life

Symphony 9 & The Sunshine

Woke up in the morning and I rung the bell
It's a long way across a wishing well
Throw my pennies in one by one
They come up shining like it's just begun

They come up wishing on the light of the sun
They come up knowin' that I got no gun
Well, I'd fire off a round if I had it in me
But I know someday'll be a sunshine memory
Walking around in a kindergarten haze
Oh my, what a happy game
Tell 'em that you love 'em till the end of your days
Tell 'em that you need 'em in a bad way
Oh how happy is the look on your face
When you know somebody and you want 'em to stay
Memory is an old highway
If you drive too long you might lose your way
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Sunshine
Never had it so good
In my childhood
Bright Sunday morning...

Symphony 10: Could This Really Be The End

Could it really be the end, Number Ten
Will you dance with me
Could it really be the end, Number Ten
We'll just wait and see

And if it really is the end
I think I'll throw a big party
And all the boys and all the girls can come out
And play with me

A friendly game of hide and seek
That could, easily last for weeks, and just
When you think it's peaked
You'll forget to pour yourself another drink
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
You'll be happy
You'll be happy
You'll be happy
At my party

Could it really be the end, Number Ten
Will you dance with me
Could it really be the end, Number Ten
We'll just wait and see

And if it really is the end
I think I'll throw a big party
And all the boys and all the girls can come out
And play with me

You'll be happy
You'll be happy
You'll be happy
At my party

You'll be happy
You'll be happy
You'll be happy
At my party

Mama

Piece of It

Two, three, and

I want a piece of it
I want a piece of it
I want a piece of it
Just a teeny tiny little piece of it

Sun that's streaming through the open blinds
Just one piece to break all mine
Sun that's streaming through your open lips
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I want a piece of it
I want a piece of it
I want a piece of it
I want a piece of it

Running 'round the hillside and my feet are bare
Just one piece and I'll toss away my cares
Sun that's streaming through the open door
If I ever cut it I'll just want some more
If I ever cut it I'll just want some more

I want a piece of it
I want a piece of it

Sun that's streaming through the window pane
If I ever cut it, I'll just give it away
If I ever cut it, I'll just give it away
'Cause a worker really uses a little light to work

I want a piece of it
I want a piece of it
I want a piece of it
I want a piece of it

Get a little piece and give it away
I want a piece of it
Get a little piece and give it away
I want a piece of it
Get a little piece and give it away
I want a piece of it

Get a little piece and give it away
I want a piece of it
Get a little piece and give it away
I want a piece of it
Get a little piece and give it away
I want a piece of it

Get a little piece and give it away
I want a piece of it
Get a little piece and give it away
I want a piece of it
Get a little piece and give it away
I want a piece of it
Get a little piece and give it away

Dirty Sneakers and Underwear

Dirty sneakers and underwear
I lost myself in your dirty hair
Lost my love in a rhapsody
Found my love in a factory

Stained knees in a multiplex
Spilled milk and a horses' ass
Built my house out of sails and wood
Burned it down and it's gone for good

Water, water when the babes on fire
Fire, fire from its deepest spire
Slide down in my underwear
Dirty sneakers and I don't care

I just want to feel better
I just want to feel right
I just want to feel better
I just want to feel right
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Best friends in a parking lot
I lost myself but I took a shot
Lost my love in a factory
Found my love in a rhapsody

Bruised lips and my ringing ears
Go to sleep to forget your cares
Wolves, wolves yeah we got a few
I bit it off now I gotta' chew

Ways, ways and we got too many
Going downtown and you look so pretty
Love, love we got plenty
Got more love than we ever had money

Joy, joy we got a lot
Best friends in a parking lot

I just want to feel better
I just want to feel right
I just want to feel better
I just want to feel right

Dirty sneakers and I don't care
Burned it down and it's gone for good...

You got your hands on me...

Passenger

If you give me the keys you know I won't survive

Pour it down my throat

Hey kitty, kitty
Say it ain't so
I'm drowning on tomorrow
Losing all my hope
Bottom of the well
And I just lost the rope, ah
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I had a feeling this might not end so hot
So tell me tell me doctor you know how to make it stop, ah
Give me all your medicine, give me all your pills
Your bedside manner just to cure my ills

I'm a passenger, I'm a passenger
Give me the keys, I want to drive
I'm a passenger, I'm a passenger
If you give me the keys you know I won't survive

I'm a buffalo
I'm a lone ranger
I'm a squad car

Teenage boys are sure to take a tumble
The reins, the reins
Are my lover

Give me the keys, I want to drive

If you give me the keys you know I won't survive

Orange juice and my youth,
Livin' it up in the poor house
Vinyl records and violins,
Spinnin' and squawkin'
Short eyelashes and your daily bread,
Learning 'bout love in your little head
Marmalade and pancakes,
Cookin' it up in the back house

Dry earth so how we ever gonna swim?
Take me down to the riverside,
Take me there, we can cry cry cry
Then we'll be at a babbling brook,
Read me from your pages and tear me from your book
Bleed your ink right into me,
Fill my lungs with empathy

Fire Song

My old house, gonna burn it down
That old house, gonna draw a crowd
Then you´ll say you lost it in the fire
Then you´ll say you lost it in the flame
Putting out old desire
So you don´t have to give it name

You´re alright, your´re alright
You´re alright til you´re not
You´re alright, your´re alright
You´re alright til you´re not
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
If I gave you everything you wanted
If I gave you all you say I should
There´d be nothing left to me but honest,
Smoke and glass and nails burnt out of wood

You´re alright, you´re alright
You´re alright til you´re not
You´re alright, your´re alright
You´re alright til you´re not

My old house, gonna burn it down
Neighborhood gonna gather round
Then they´ll say you lost it in the fire
Babe, just say you lost it in the flame
Puttin out old desire
So you don´t have to give it name

You´re alright, your´re alright
You´re alright til you´re not
You´re alright, your´re alright
You´re alright til you´re not

No Good

You paid me with your currency
I paid you with the sun
Smoke a cigarette and get in bed
If you wanna act surprised
And baby, do you
Do you know the stakes
Of loving somebody
Who only makes mistakes

'Cause I'm no good at being alive
I'm no good at getting by by by
I'm no good at being alive
I'm no good at getting by by by

Wake up in your bed
Wake in a cherry tree
Falling out on the dewy ground
You know I'd touch your bruised body
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Baby, do you
Do you know the cost
Of loving somebody
Who always be lost

'Cause I'm no good at being alive
I'm no good at getting by by by
I'm no good at being alive

Promise

Los Angeles

Her mouth, it was moving, but no sound was coming out
And your back, it was turning, around
We were always dreaming of a day that would never come
Los Angeles, Los Angeles, I'm burning up for you
Hanging out the window, holding on to an afternoon

She knew, how to teach those, boys to fight
We were, always yelling' at the night
It would never come
And wanting, was it desire
You and I, we never won
copy paste is killing the internet
Los Angeles, Los Angeles
I'm burning up for you

Well you walk the streets and you say goodbye
All along the river tonight
And if they tell you, you must go
Just look 'em in the eye
Say, "No, no, no my love is here"

You Dream of China

You let the days pass
You let the night come
You dream of China
You dream of no one
I'm here to remind you, don't forget, forget it
I'm here to remind you

You call your father
You let it ring
You celebrate him

We are, gonna get it right
We are, gonna get it wrong
copy paste is killing the internet
You let the phone ring, you let it pass
You want everything, you're afraid to ask
I'm here to remind you, don't forget, forget it
I'm here to remind you

You want nothing
'Cause nothing lasts except wanting

And want and get and need and pride

Don't Use Me Up

Don't use me up
I wanted everything so don't use me up
Don't let me down
I'm really counting on you so don't let me down
Everything is easier when you wash it down
All your friends are your best friends
When you wash it down
copy paste is killing the internet
So go meet the devil, go meet Jesus
When you wash it down, when you wash it down
Don't tie me up
I got no strings attached so don't tie me up
Don't let me go

I wanna hold you back so don't let me go
Everything is brighter when you wash it down
Everyone knows your name when you wash it down
So go meet the devil
Go meet Jesus
When you wash it down

We went down to the water to be baptized
Don't let me down to the water to be baptized

Pack of Nobodies

You were downstairs in the kitchen
Learning to be my wife
A good kid on good advice
We didn't know it
We didn't know it
We don't know how to love
We don't know how to love we don't know

We fuck it up to get caught
We get caught to fuck it up
We roam around, we roam around
copy paste is killing the internet
You said, "you got something to prove man?"
I said "Baby I just might, stick around, learn to fight"
And we didn't know it
I don't know how to love, I don't know how to love
I don't know

And I'm gonna need you to be careful with me
Some day you're gonna have to come home
And I'm gonna need you to take care of me

And you're gonna need me too

We fuck it up to get lost
We get lost to fuck it up
We roam around, we roam around

Take it Easy, San Francisco

tell me what you've done to me
Can we please take it easy
It be so lovely like a gloomy afternoon
To just take it easy with you

Where do you go with your wiles and your woes
Can we please take it slow

Can we please take it easy
Can we please take it easy

Half of heart break is knowing the ropes
But a tight walkers toes are well worth the show
I got a dime for every song that jives and
wouldn't you know that I'm half broke?
copy paste is killing the internet
Can we please take it easy
Can we please take it easy

Don't stop talking to me
When we whisper something sweet
And we're riding home, riding home in the evening
And I'm falling asleep

Don't stop talking to me
Don't stop talking to me
...
Don't stop talking to me
Don't stop talking to me

Don't I have it pretty little darling
Don't I have it made

Don't I have it pretty little darling
Don't I have it made

Come to Me

Come to me when you know that you're ready
Come to me when you're home
And my mama said there'd be blue jays in the summer
Yeah my mama said there'd be apples in the fall
But my mama don't know a thing about loving
'Cept how to catch a man when he falls
copy paste is killing the internet
So come to me when you're good and you're ready
Come to me when you're home
Yes, come come to me, come come to me
Come come to me when you're good and ready

And my mama said there'd be oranges in the winter
Yeah my mama said there'd be blossoms in the spring
And my mama sure knows a whole lot about loving
So come to me and I'll give you, everything

I gotcha back

We don't know what's best for us
We don't know what's next for us but I wanna find out, I wanna find out
I don't know what you look like old and gray
I hope you will stay 'cause I wanna find out
And I don't care, I don't care anymore
I just wanna find out

We don't care, we don't care anymore
We don't care, we don't care anymore
We just wanna find out

I gotcha gotcha, gotcha, gotcha

We don't care, we don't care anymore
We don't care, we don't care anymore
We just wanna find out

Fallin In On It

I was in danger
I was in need
All I could see, my own reflection
I was in danger
I was in danger of falling in on me

And if you ever, give a thought, to growing old
Then you know about falling in, falling in on it

If you give it all up
If you give it all away
If you give it all up

You forget your name
copy paste is killing the internet
The Lord, he comes down, most every night
Yeah the Lord, he reminds me about falling in, falling in on him

I don't wanna know my name anymore
I don't wanna know my name.
You forget your name, forget your name, forget your name

I was in danger, of being in love
Of being in love, just like I used to

I was in danger of falling in, falling in on you
And if you ever give a thought, to being someone
Somebody else's

Then you know, yeah you know
You don't belong to me you don't belong to me
(You gonna come to me, you gonna come to me)
I can't get used to you, getting used to me

Antidote

I don't wanna lose ever again
I don't wanna lose, nobody
I don't wanna lose, ever again
I don't wanna lose, no

Down in the night, when the demons come in
Down by your body I was born to forget
And if you ever, turn to me honey
I will say your name

I don't wanna lose ever again
I don't wanna lose, nobody
I don't wanna lose, ever again
I don't wanna lose, no

And in the morning
Let me see those eyes
Tie me to your longing
I'll tie you down to mind
You stop believing, you go blind
I stopped believing
copy paste is killing the internet
I don't wanna lose ever again
I don't wanna lose, nobody
I don't wanna lose, ever again
I don't wanna lose, no

Put me down in the dark, you come untied
I hear you singing
To tell you the truth, to tell you the truth
I was born a liar
Oh to be good, good this time
In light of the dark, when I was blind

He took off in the night he gave his daughters all he could give
He had a son to fight, a face for weathering

We reconciled. We found it out
Goodnight, goodnight.
And if there's no God then what of love
What of love, what of love
I give up
Goodnight, goodnight
If we fall away in the swarm, in the swarm, in the swarm, (swamp)
Hold on to me honey

Hold on to me
Hold on to me honey
Hold on to me

Adagio

Go slow my love, go slow
I got a number for you
You got mine
Go slow, if you can help yourself
Go slow, this time

I'm a goner
I wanna get on that bus
The one that'll ride me to your front door
Just to tell you how much
copy paste is killing the internet
I'm a goner
I wanna get on that bus
The one that'll ride me all through the night
Just to tell you how much

Richard

Don't go to sleep
Don't close your eyes
If we stay up all night, then we stay alive
Gonna say my prayers for you
Say 'em every night
Lord I want the same thing
Always want the same thing
I wanna stay alive
copy paste is killing the internet
(listen)
Pray for what you've got
And print the money at home

Let me stay alive...

Light Is Drainin'

And if I were to take you
Take you in my arms now hear me
I would try to lose you
I would try to lose you

And if I were to wound you
Well I would come calling
I'd done calling
And if I were to love you
Really really love you
Well why I would try to lose you

Did you
And if you
Were to know the love
You seek it
You'll find it
You will find it

And if you
And if you
Wanna know
You'll seek me
You will find me
You will find me

And if I were to have you
Well what is having someone else
No I don't want to have you
But holding you means someone and holding is what we do to get it
And if I were to lose you
Really really lose you
Well losing is what we did together

And if you
And if if you
Wanna know the love
You will seek it
You will find it
You will find it

And if you
And if you
Wanna lose
You will seek it
You will find it
You will find it

Take me into the white (Take me into the white)
Take me into the white (Take me into the white)
Take me into the white (Take me into the white)
Take me into the white (Take me into the white)
Take me into the white (Take me into the white)
Take me into the white (Take me into the white)
Take me into the white (Take me into the white)
Take me into the white (Take me into the white)
Take me into the white (Take me into the white)
Take me into the white (Take me into the white)

Come on baby
Come on come on, come on baby
I don't really care
Take me on into the wire and
And baby don't leave there

Becomes The Color

( Stoker OST )

I became the color
I become the daughter and the son
When the feast is over
Welcome to another one

Lay my body down down
Down upon the water
Wrapped up in the clothes of my mother and my father
Oh this is longing
I wanna be complete
I was waiting round in a little jump seat

I had a hunger
A mouthful of interludes
You'll do anything just to get rescued
I had longing
Isn't that the key
Take take taste taste taste sweet
They said I'd gone south
I'd gone asunder
They don't know hunger
Or what I been under
They were all laughing
Thought I was debris
I was just free
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
We were ready to behave
But there's no freedom
Without no key
Whatever you think you've become
Don't worry about it dear
It's where you come from

Oh no no, take me from my misery
There's no such thing as living comfortably
There's no such thing as going home
I'm not formed of myself alone

All the other others they'll just fade to black
When you think you have me's when I don't look back
Keep on laughing, calling after me
Keep on laughing, I'm just free

We were ready to behave
But there's no freedom
Without no key
Whatever you think you've become
Don't worry about it dear
It's where you come from

Juicy

(The Notorious B.I.G song / Dirty EP)

It was all a dream
I used to read Word Up magazine
Salt'n'Pepa and Heavy D up in the limousine
Hangin' pictures on my wall
Every Saturday Rap Attack, Mr. Magic, Marley Marl
I let my tape rock 'til my tape popped
Smokin' weed and bamboo, sippin' on private stock
Way back, when I had the red and black lumberjack
With the hat to match
Remember Rappin' Duke, duh-ha, duh-ha
You never thought that hip hop would take it this far
Now I'm in the limelight 'cause I rhyme tight
Time to get paid, blow up like the World Trade
Born sinner, the opposite of a winner
Remember when I used to eat sardines for dinner
I'm blowin' up like you thought I would
Call the crib, same number same hood
It's all good

And if you don't know, now you know

You know very well who you are
Don't let em hold you down, reach for the stars
You had a goal, but not that many
'cause you're the only one I'll give you good and plenty

I made the change from a common thief
To up close and personal with Robin Leach
And I'm far from cheap, I smoke skunk with my peeps all day
Spread love, it's the Brooklyn way
The Moet and Alize keep me pissy
Girls used to diss me
Now they write letters 'cause they miss me
I never thought it could happen, this rappin' stuff
I was too used to packin' gats and stuff
Now honies play me close like butter played toast
From the Mississippi down to the east coast
Condos in Queens, indo for weeks
Sold out seats to hear Biggie Smalls speak

And if you don't know, now you know

You know very well who you are
Don't let em hold you down, reach for the stars
You had a goal, but not that many
'cause you're the only one I'll give you good and plenty

Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis
When I was dead broke, man I couldn't picture this
50 inch screen, money green leather sofa
Got two rides, a limousine with a chauffeur
Phone bill about two G's flat
No need to worry, my accountant handles that
And my whole crew is loungin'
Celebratin' every day, no more public housin'
Thinkin' back on my one-room shack
Now my mom pimps a Ac' with minks on her back
And she loves to show me off, of course
Smiles every time my face is up in The Source
We used to fuss when the landlord dissed us
No heat, wonder why Christmas missed us
Birthdays was the worst days
Now we sip champagne when we thirst-ay
damn right I like the life I live
'Cause I went from negative to positive

And if you don't know, now you know

You know very well who you are
Don't let em hold you down, reach for the stars
You had a goal, but not that many
'cause you're the only one I'll give you good and plenty

Take It Easy San Francisco

(Dirty EP)

Tell me what you've done to me
Can we please take it easy?
It be so lovely like a gloomy afternoon
to just take it easy with you.

Where do you go with your wiles & your woes?
Can we please take it slow?

Can we please take it easy?
Can we please take it easy?

Half of a prank is knowin the ropes
but a tight walkers toes are well worth the show
I got a dime for every song that jives and
wouldn't you know that I'm half broke?

Can we please take it easy?
Can we please take it easy?

Don't stop talking to me.
When we whisper something sweet
and we're riding home, riding home in the evening
and I'm falling asleep.

Don't stop talking to me.
Don't stop talking to me.
...
Don't stop talking to me.
Don't stop talking to me.

Don't I have it pretty little darling
Don't I have it made?

Don't I have it pretty little darling
Don't I have it made?

Whiskey And Rags

(Dirty EP)

Last night all the stars fell from the sky I know.
Cause I was there standing there tonight.
It longer than a lulliby, I, I
I, sometimes I just want to say goodbye sad I,
No it doesn't leave me high feelin, feelin
But whiskey and rags will make it all better
Whiskey and rags will make it all better

Love, love come back to me
Love, love would you make it all better
I want you, I want you
Love, I want you real bad
Love, I want you real bad
Love, I want you real bad
Love, I want you real bad
Love, I want you real bad
I want you real bad
I want you bad

My heart, my hearts got a hole in it cause, I
I'm sober but your sorry stitch near I
Try to make another fit, I, I
I sometimes, I just want to hold you tight darlin
Whisper in your ear how I'm feeling, feeling
My sore arms will make it all better
Whiskey and rags will make it all better

Love, love come back to me
Love, love would you make it all better
I want you, I want you
Love, I want you real bad
Love, I want you real bad
Love, I want you real bad
Love, I want you real bad
Love, I want you real bad
I want you real bad
I want you bad

Love I want you bad like I want no one
Get you in my big old car, we'll have some fun
Roll around town just like we were young
Forget, forget, what's to come
Forget, forget, your swollen heart
Forget, someday that we must part.

All you kids and your rock and roll music
Turn it up, Turn it up. Never loose it.
Love, I want you real bad
Love, I want you real bad
Love, I want you real bad
Love, I want you real bad
I want you real bad
I want you bad

Love, I want you real bad
Love, I want you real bad
Love, I want you real bad
Love, I want you real bad
I want you real bad
I want you bad
