Track Name: Frantic Funk
Self, holds me back, from myself, please don’t offer me no help, ‘less I ask.
I help myself, searching for my day of PEACE, piece of mind but mind your step, or someday you might find OUT!

SOUNDS from the street freak me out keep me up and i can’t sleep, mind’s in doubt, so I take a peak.
Somone’s calling on my phone, ringing out, don’t know that number, common sense has left my head full of doubt but freaking out ain’t gonna HELP NOBODY!

Those farmers DANCE, on my patch, lay me flat, take a SLICE OF APPLE LOVE, dish it out, but don’t pay it back, won’t you ever live or love the
SMELL of fresh cut grass, i start to WHEE-E-EEZE searching for my vento-DRUGS, please react. The frantic funk put a KNIFE IN MY BACK

Scat: “Dooaliddo bap, dum, dom doodabap”…etc
