No Shame

    In the begining of 2006 we headed into the next studio adventure. Still untitled at this point, we started to utilize major label opportunities. With time (and money) on our side, we were able to work at our convenience and with people we really wanted to (Paul Leary, Nick Hexum, Tony Canal, Micheal Patterson, just to name a few). We found that during this process it kept the recording experience fresh and unpredictable. With so many wonderful people involved the music felt great and we had complete confidence that it was being captured correctly.

    Then came a speed bump. The A&R of Atlantic didn't hear a "single". The record lacked "pop notoriety" and so they flew us to New York to "hunt down a single."

    When we landed we were taken to a studio named Pop Rocks. That should tell you everything. After going through songs and ideas they found one that they thought was a "break through pop hybrid reggae smash!!!!" What happened was they stripped this sick song called "The Whistle Song," turned it into a bubble pop shit piece, and renamed it "Chop Sugar."

    We all left the studio shocked that they turned a demo that had a feeling like old dub shack into some God awful cross-over radio attempt. Needless to say that track never made the album. After sending us back to Cali to record in a another studio we changed it back to it orginal form with a little more of a live feel. But it still wasn't as great as the demo. They weren't too happy with us, but fuck that. Chop Sugar my asshole, burn that track.

    Although the excersize was a failure, it was good to go through it just to see how desperate other record companies were for anything that would generate money. Atlantic soon dropped us after that. But there are no hard feelings because with their leaving us they GAVE us No Shame!!! Just GAVE us the album. And let us become Free Agents!!!! We were now in position to move forward with no strings or arms holding us down. Enter.........

    LAW RECORDS!!!!! Now that we had NO SHAME we were able to sell and release it with our own record label.

    All in all, No Shame was the most exciting album to me. There was so much going on at that time and the songs really refelect everything happening at that time of life.

    I hope you enjoy as well.

Rent to the landlord baby, that's his business, that's his business, that's his business
Rent to the landlord baby, that's his business, that's his business, that's his business
Papa used to tell me it was the electric, the electric, the electric

How could I ever thank you, my girl
Track Name: No Control
Hey!
I got the right of way, and that's all you got to say
I been thinking about, thinking about somethings I thought I'd never be thinking
Too many drugs dropped into my mouth looking for something new but I end up drinking
Ignore the warnings on the shore, I'll take my chance swim into danger

The fuse is gone, just a flame and a bomb, now how do you explode unstable
Big suit with a brief case I'm holding contracts stating how your labeled
Holding on to a phone on hold while I'm told to wait for the next operator
I wanna taste life uncontrolled, on no here I go I hope to see you later
This is your station under no control, broadcasting for you to let go
This is your station under no control, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up enjoy the show

Everything that I would like to see, broadcast this emergency
Emergency, emergency, emergency, emergency
Track Name: Green Hell
I can hear your soft, soft voice sliding down the walls
And I feel a green light kissing my face
Tell me when you wake up is this where your gonna be
You don't think I'll notice but I can wait for you to leave
So when I saw this place that I couldn't resist
All these beautiful things yes I had to persist
When I went to touch them they'd act so tame
But underneathe the glitter there was so much pain
Someone started talking, way below the pitch I read
I couldn't really hear what they were saying, but it really didn't bother me oh no
I was on my way yah, to being lost all over again
I'm following this girl into the ocean, now I'm drowning in a mermaids bed
Til I hold my breathe, I shoot thru the chamber on my way to losing some friends
I can hear your soft, soft voice sliding down the walls
And I feel a green light kissing my face
Tell me when you wake up is this where your gonna be
You don't think I'll notice but I can wait for you to leave
Now all your life has been wasted, chasing after me
And now you got the nerve, to come and put it all on me yah
I love how these things come full circle, everytime
Swinging around like a racking ball in your fragile soul
You can run, but the scars you can never hide
Oh your face is giving you away
And the truth hurts more than the matter
And the sun screams louder at night
I can hear your soft, soft voice sliding down the walls
And I feel a green light kissing my face
Tell me when you wake up is this where your gonna be
You don't think I'll notice but I can wait for you to leave
Oh, do you know where you are, do you at all
Do you know where you are, do you at all
Know where you are, my green hell
Track Name: Lost In America
East coast is gonna swallow ya, swallow ya
Midwest is gonna burn it down
West coast I'm gonna follow ya, follow ya
On my way to Kona Town
Drive along the country roads well, just don't piss on the alamo
Jump up the station down in coco, eat sushi on hudson after the NYC show
I'm sorry Craig but we got to go so, say hi to slug in the prince disco
Time was great as the pictures show, but it's a really long time to where we got to go
Lost in America, I'm feeling lost in America, no one really knows ya, when your lost in America
I gotta ?? while I pay the toll, eat day old food uncomfortable
Seattle, AZ, vegas is the show, head up tp bean town bounce to chicago
Sorry little baby but we got to go, say goodbye to ?? and the town he owns
Now the time was great as the pictures show, but it's a really long drive to where we got to go
Lost in America, I'm feeling lost in America, no one really knows ya, when your lost in America
East coast is gonna swallow ya, swallow ya
Midwest is gonna burn it down
West coast I'm gonna follow ya, follow ya
On my way to Kona Town
Lost in America, I'm feeling lost in America, no one really knows ya, when your lost in America
Lost in America, I'm feeling lost in America, no one really knows ya, when your lost in America
Track Name: Your Face
You know I really had to use my sense now
I slam the door right in your face
Hows it feel, hows it taste
And look how, you won't dance with me
Well has this symbol made you so mean that you're looking so far past me
You say what you say but don't walk away
My tongue so tired from putting out the fire that
I started in the first place
So pretend your in my shoes,
you got nothing to loose
and if I'm acting slutty then it's probably form the booze, the booze

What's wrong with your face,
you never smile anymore,
what's wrong with your face
You never close your eyes when I kiss your face,
you never smile anymore,
what's wrong with your face, oh

And sometimes I sit and wonder,
why I bother when I know that all this angers for your father
Can you hear me,
She's gonna kill me when she finds out your magazines that are dirty
I feel so dirty,
but nothing can hurt me, except the way you shake your head when you
You say what you say but don't walk away
My tongue so tired from putting out the fire that I,
I started in the first place
So pretend your in my shoes,
you got nothing to loose and if I'm acting slutty then it's probably form the booze, the booze

What's wrong with your face,
you never smile anymore,
what's wrong with your face
You never close your eyes when I kiss your face,
you never smile anymore, what's wrong with your face, oh
Track Name: Nice Time
Look at me baby, am I a little blurry
Now your tears have obstructed your view
This is only crazy, if you think it's crazy
And of course it's always up to you
Now there's so much to say, you won't give away
Don't think you'll ever decide
So you leave it up to me, to say what we both mean
I'm sorry but I'm over the line
Because the last time we had a nice time baby it was so long ago
Oh it was the last time but now I think that I'm ready for me to let you go
So why do you care anymore, why do you care, why do you care anymore
All this time that you think I would be here for your sake
I hope you got a bottle of wine, and if it's a drinking problem
I'll be laughing at the bottom, because I already finished mine
But there's so much to say, It's a give away, what you really feel inside
So you leave it up to me, to say what we both mean
I'm sorry but I'm over the line
Because the last time we had a nice time baby it was so long ago
Oh it was the right time but now I think that I'm ready for me to let you go
Oh and now the last time we had a nice time baby it was so long ago
Now you can leave me right here, I can leave you right there, you can keep me right here
How could you just not care, and I know, feeling like a sun, when the night is done
So just let me shine oh
And the last time we had a nice time baby it was so long ago
Oh it was the last time but now I think that I'm ready for me to let you go
Oh Because the last time we had a nice time baby it was so long ago
Baby cause the last time we had a nice time baby, the last time baby was so long ago
Track Name: Crazy Love
She loves the party, I can see
Her dress is worn perfectly
A speaker shuffle her dancing feet
My tongue trips me up when I speak
Now she's the type of girl that could only be trouble
Looking the part, from the start she hands me a green bottle
She asks me for the time, I reply no thanks I'm fine
Then she laughs and asks what I was thinking of
I want a part of your crazy love, it's really all I am ever thinking of
I need a part of your crazy love, it's a crazy love, it's a crazy love

Not so hard to persuade
She gives a smile puts it away
And that's enough for me too
Do what you want to do
Soft spoken hanging thru the morning
Really don't pay attention to the breakfast she's burning
The food is on my plate, I lie and say it's great
Then she smiles and asks what I was dreaming of
I want a part of your crazy love, it's really all I am ever thinking of
I need a part of your crazy love, it's a crazy love, it's your crazy love

I'll finish the dishes put on some records if you know how
Makes the selection singing dread natty dread now
She threw me again, again extended don't let it in
This is exactly what I was thinking of, whoa yah
I want a part of your crazy love, it's really all I am ever thinking of
I need a part of your crazy love, it's your crazy love, it's your crazy love whoa
I need a part of your crazy love, now baby just give me, baby just give me
Your crazy love

Track Name: Wanted
If you let me have a taste, I'll probably keep this world from falling down
I'm pulling on my E-brake, and when I turned around you were gone
You made me fall in love again, I know it's no ones fault but my own
I'm blinded by my reasons, well I guess that's why I'm all alone
And that's what I wanted, and that's what I found, I
I could never change your mind, I could never reach you in time
All is lost, and is that all that I want yah
take those glasses off your face, can't you see your sun is going down
Can't believe you live that way, you're holding all your breathe for someone else
All I made was one mistake, almost seems like you were counting on more
Do I disappoint you, or did I do something more
And that's what I wanted, and that's what I found, I
I could never change your mind, I could never reach you in time
All is lost, and is that all that I want yah
Well I was way too young, and I was way to shy
But I remember you, remember you
I must have asked myself, about a million times if
That's what I wanted, and that's what I found, I
I could never change your mind, I could never reach you in time
And that's what I wanted, and that's what I found, I
I could never change your mind, I could never reach you in time
All is lost, and is that all I want yah
Track Name: Good Enough
Girl I like what you do to me
Girl I like what you say to me but
Lately now you've been the biggest distraction whoa
Just trying to get all of my attention on you
But you're never, never satisfied
Never good enough, it's never good enough
Never good enough, it's never good enough for you
Girl I tell you that I love you
Girl it's such an easy thing to do but I
I can't stay all around talking forever, oh
You always think somethings wrong when we're not together, you hung up the phone
Think I'll finish what I need to say
It's never good enough, it's never good enough
It's never good enough, it's never good enough for you
Maybe I got no one left to
Seems you're never, never satisfied
Never good enough, never good enough
Never good enough, it's never good enough for you
It's never good enough
It's never good enough for you
Track Name: Zicky's Song
If you had it all, if you had nothing at all
What would you do, not to see your tears fall
Sleeping so still, with a little time to kill
Drink down this thought , swallow this pill
And the world would not move, to let me cry and sooth
The ink would never dry on page, tears fall on words I say about you
About you, about you, about you
Days are just lonely, days are just only
Used up like school books, forgotten like fools, fools
It's a distant constellation dying, In the corner of the sky
I'm not looking for a miracle, just an explanation why about you
About you, about you, about you oh
About you, about you, about you, about you
About you, about you, it's about you
