From a Dare Candy Co Bag

I’m in the business of talking shit
of spittin’ quick
of lettin’ it stick
I’m gonna lap up tell you what it is
while your drink lays down and looses its fizz
you’ll be wishing you carried around a
little cushion so when I knock you over your
pretty face has something to land on
call the landlord, your lease is up i need you
out of here in 10 days or else I’ll change the locks
Call your girlfriend ask to borrow her socks
can’t come back here calling my deed your loft
i’m gonna make you bounce
this city lived and country switched power house
I’m gonna make you count
watch your eyes before you’re dizzy and I take you out
I won’t make you doubt
I’ve got my tongue of fire blazin’ this whole place down

The Only One She Told
J.E. McCafferty

Liar liar pants on fire
Said last time I thrived on dire
Fought my battles walked the wire
Fakery began to tire
All those people believing deep
held me up as the grim reaper
Wished I could have climbed much steeper
But I was a dream-catch eater
Held the wish to drown the mole
We couldn’t take any souls
I swear we tried, we did not know
Then god opened mouth and ripped me whole

Rudyard Kipling

I don’t want your money but if you send a cheque I’ll cash it
I don’t want your pity but if attention’s coming I’ll stash it
So many times I’ve said I wouldn’t stoop so low
but every day is turning me into a master at limbo
surprise yourself with pleasantries or avoidance or a feeling
never say never cause the holy spirit’s teething
wants a bite of my earthly flesh and all the lies I let in
this is how you get on your knees and pray for all the sinning
I don’t want your money but I’ll take it if it’s there
cause I don’t like to waste things like guilty almost care
I’d rather have your praise but I guess beggars can’t be choosers
I used to crave the fame when I was caught up with the losers
Now I don’t know where I am supposed to be going
Put the money in the hat and hope it don’t start snowing

From the Beginning
Chelsey Burnside

I have a couple cures up my sleeve
for those days with the knocking knees
Where you can’t sit still even if you please
cause the mind is a buzz with a billion bees
I know what to do when you can’t cut through
the noise that’s been making you feel annoyed
so listen up here it’s the answer it’s the key
for those bumping hearts that are bursting free
Keep moving then if the calm won’t stay
it’s the right time to run if your legs shaped that way
there’s a river to be imitated
if your hunger got you far from sated
you can roll in and out
till your bones get tired and eventually
your nerves will expire
so run like the wind and kiss like the moon
the silence will be there when you’re
ready to tune in your inner ear to the inner light
and until then just keep growing your bright.

Dancing to reggae beats, come my little lady let’s beat this heat
You’re at my barbecue and I’m done grilling you,
are you single do you want to be my boo?
Okay, great, that was easy–my name is Mark and I’m not sleazy, I really like you, wind is breezy, blowing my love at you if you feelin’ me
I invited these folks so you would come over and play–I’m just gonna say it, it’s the day of all days,
You’re the hottest thing here, I wanted to give you praise, but you think this is a joke and we might go separate ways.
I started thinking about you during the summer block party last year
I am shocked that of my attraction you never did hear
I tell all the guys, I tell everyone, I’m dying to see you in your bikini in the sun.
You are a shining ray, my god girl this is fate, your body is a magnet and I positively can’t wait.
Get it? I didn’t take science
all I know is there’s no silence
In my brain and in my pants
I’m trying to give you a mental lap dance.
You look like you’re enjoying…
all these vibes I’m been employing.
Summer block party, yup.

Like a calm he comes in
but he’s got it goin’ on
I feel vibrations, inhalations
and I know he’s the one
Sing it loud, preach your truth
I’m your baby, I’m your muse
I’m your master, I’m your juice
I’m your lady
I’m your truce

See, you entered the room like you owned it
flipped a switch in my brain, claim the fame
that you stormed in
and I’m left in a daze because
you’re one of those guys and it’s just one of those days
Like a liquor, like a drug, I’m on a trip that keeps me
loving, searching, finding what’s what
no ifs ands about it
no sorrys no buts

This is magic, this is envy
this is joy, this thing you gave me
and I’m left holding, I’m left hovering over the ideas you exploded, the answers you’ve decoded
I can hear you, I can taste your mind, and it’s beautiful because it gets me full every time
You’re my ending, my orgasm, I’m the chocolate, come on have some

If I see you again it’ll be on purpose
paint me blue and red, lick me pink and turquoise
Can I steal you, can I keep you, can I let you meet my mom
You’re the force that’s been haunting, that’s been making me strong
Cause I’m unending, you’re the start
you’re the motion
we’re the art
