VERSE 1 When I drive my car, and I park downtown There’s never ever any free spots I look and I look, but there’s none to be found A vulture goes hungry once again CHORUS So I want totes plents parks Room for all my arks And my friends and family, too Yeah, I want totes plents parks A place for neurons and quarks Clear a space, cuz I’m coming through VERSE 2 There’s so many people and there’s so little time That I’m not even gonna try to slow down I’d rather not injure and I’d rather not maim Let’s agree to disagree and disperse CHORUS BRIDGE My plea is a fantasy No way could it be done But if you all just put aside what you want And focus on what I want We can make this thing happen CHORUS Totes plents parks Room for all my arks And my friends and family, too Yeah, I want Totes plents parks A place for neurons and quarks Clear a space, cuz I’m coming through Cuz I want totes plents parks Room for all my Starks And my Dornes and my Lannisters, too Yeah, I want land and grace Just a little taste We’ll really all be better this way

VERSE 1 Gonna go outside today Gonna make a plan today Gonna make some noise today At least I think I’m Gonna shake the world someday But no one’s really Heard me yet, though VERSE 2 Gonna tell him off today Gonna finally go big today Gonna instigate today I’m fairly sure I’m Gonna do something one day But no one’s really Seen me yet, though I guess it’s kinda Sad I’m still here CHORUS One bark And a couple murfs All I got is One bark And a couple murfs VERSE 3 Today’s gonna be the day It’s time to make my way There’s nothing else to say Except that I’m Still not quite ready The problem is I’m Still not stea-dy, it’s Still too hea-dy, I Guess I’m still me CHORUS One bark And a couple murfs All I got is One bark And a couple murfs

VERSE 1 Everyone, has a side And each one, tells a lie No one waits, follow fates CHORUS Polygonal people Wandering around Infinite possibilities But so many denied Shades of glory Tin and wine Developing a narrative spin Won’t cost you a dime VERSE 2 Anyone, can know you But can they know, who is who CHORUS Polygonal people We’re drawn inside Pixel perfect planning Find the anodyne Killing and stealing Robbing the blind Tell our stories When we find the time VERSE 3 There’s no one, anymore CHORUS Polygonal people We’re drawn inside Pixel perfect planning Find the anodyne Talking and dealing Doing our time Find our meaning While we hit the grind

VERSE 1 The creatures down here They can’t see or know Darkness is their friend And it is our foe Blurred visions are their ceilings All the floors are false Forever they move on Waltz, dance in a whirl Reflect through a twirl Eternal, this life passed In the blink of an eye CHORUS No one has a name You can only ever be something for a short while VERSE 2 Shapeless and formless Matter means little there Being in one place can still mean That you’re really someplace else CHORUS No one has a name Everybody just pre-tends and acts like it’s still real VERSE 3 Ooooooo This isn't over yet, not even close Round and round and round and round and round they spin Hoping for something bigger than themselves But finding only the darkness below

Deciding is the hardest part When you can’t see any way To make it all fit To make it all right Time to throw away your say I saw through the fog of me And there I found...I found you A small part of it all But the largest part I see

about

5-song EP about anything and nothing.

Melodies and lyrics, but no singing. Sometimes, you just don't get to that part in time.

about

Nebyoolae San Diego, California

Hi, I'm Mike! I write music that hopefully makes you respond with "Cool!", an appreciable nod, and at least the occasional head bang, because that's the best genre of music there is.

I also make 90s-influenced pop rock as Fench (fench.bandcamp.com), and funky alt rock with Fly Like Venus (flylikevenus.bandcamp).
