Steady Riot 02:38
Lower Allston Rising The music's made on Boston's dejected streets In polluted rooms and sweat dripping ceilings We come together, defiance on the road But the freeway can be brutal with no dosh or a home yeah Music, a steady riot in my soul My buddy Johnny, he can never get up But it's him who should be admired Not those fame driven shmucks Works at a bar, gives me pints and free eats I swear, Johnny alone feeds the Allston music scene And then there's Sudz, yeah he can get bummed After a long night of drinking in that rude riot fun But it's easy to get down when you view life as a stray But my man he brings me up I should tell him one of these days Music, a steady riot in my soul Always in me Just walking back from Central Square Thinking about what I heard this smart guy share S'like there's a time to drink and to dream Then create and complete My life, resistant words, a good riff and a beat A steady riot

Shining On 03:14

Ave., I hit up Blanchard's They sell cheap wine, I got six bucks Bag rips, wine smash Drink it up avoid the glass But I can't help from just smiling When that damn sun is shinning on Hell, It's just Shinning down all over me No, I can't help but just smile While that damn sun is shining on Dang it's just shining down Down over me So now I call up my friend 'Cause his girl must be bored, see She's been spreading rumors about me That I robbed her party, but I never had I pull out my little disc man I bought from a crackhead down in Reno But my Melt-Banana Cd Is all scratched up I think it's stupid all the people who are moaning Yeah moaning on While the sun is shining down On our city streets Even all the things people say Naw, ain't affecting me Not when that damn sun Is shining down over me Shining down on me Born to just never care About the stupid things People moan everyday So later on I meet Johnny Trouble At a bar called Shay's, a spit from Charlie's We sit outside talking about girls How they're loons but we like them anyway No money for pints at the bar We bring a backpack full of Pabst 0ooo Under the table we fill our glass So me and Johnny just sit outside Warmed by that summer night While those city stars are shining Down on our streets And I just can't help from smiling While those damn stars are shining down Yeah those stars are shining Over our city streets No, I won't be caught moaning Not when light is still shining down And me and Johnny Warmed by that damn summer heat And I can't stop from just smiling When those damn stars are shining on Yeah, those stars are shining Over our city streets Can you imagine that?

Deadpan 02:31
Her deadpan face. Her deadpan face. Her deadpan face. Her deadpan face. I look into her eyes. I wonder if she likes me. I look into her eyes. I see a reflection of me. Her deadpan face. Her deadpan face. Her deadpan face. Her deadpan face. [ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/b/big+d+and+the+kids+table/deadpan_20540685.html ] I fear her insides. I sweat. I can't stand it anymore. I stand, I leave this place. I walk home in the rain. I can only see her... face. Eyes fixed on me. Her deadpan face. Her deadpan face. Her deadpan face. Her deadpan face. Her deadpan face.

She only heads out when it's late and dark No need to worry, she's smooth, she's smart I'll see her later 'cause we can't be apart You tell me my girls trouble, yes, you tell me my girls trouble, 'cause she Falls, gets back up, stumbles round, spins around, then just Falls, gets back up, stumbles round, spins around She melts into the night in her own rude way Blown into the party like a warm hurricane - she says It's nice to be Drunk from love” She knows she's floating, but she can't never get enough Sings your name Her word is art Her chest's a window, so you can always see her heart Her chest's a window, so you can always see her heart Wayfaring drunkard dancing home, well she departs But she knows her way back home Sings to a branch that she passes on her way Dances for a little sleepy pleased stray Talks to a crow she's named a Mr. Blue Jay I'll tell you my girl's wonders, yes, I'll tell you my girl's wonders She's walking staring upward, staring upward, singing something Kinda feeling like a devil on her way up to the heavens She likes long, drawn, French songs Stops to sit The sidewalk Bass is low, she sings a Ms. Bardot song Space is high, she yawns and rubs her eyes Then she calls me on her tele, just to tell me 'bout A spider she finds pretty, a red polka-dotted spider Police drive by and see her talking to the stars Police have her put her hands on the car Where are you heading, Ms.?” 76 Franklin, see that's where my baby lives” Here I sit My porch stairs I breathe and squint My cat sits by me Way down the street I see my girl, she floats, yes, and dances slowly to me Sits on me, hugging, both quiet in the dark Whispering, 'cause it's a direct line to the heart There is no distance that is keeping us apart You tell me my girl's trouble, but you just don't know her wonders And the waiting, whoa-oh Yes, the love of waiting, whoa-oh Yes, the love of waiting, whoa-oh Yes, my love of waiting For her
