<<<instrumental>>>


>back to top<

Against Time
(A.Ruffcorn)

sitting cross-legged, like a little kid
looking aloof and cuter than you ever did
before, we adore the exchange of more
I implore me to brave the storm

it’s light though, I don’t see the dark
embark on this, your greatest spark
spark the dame, ignition flame, it’ll all be told in the next few frames
spark the dame, ignition flame, it’ll all be told in the next few frames

cutting class, dressed to the nines again
nipples hard, you could def cut glass with them
crass, crass, crass, you’ve a beautiful ass
I recall this all as you’re part of my past

present future, all that’s ever been
even you and me in heaven then
spark the dame, ignition flame, it’ll all be told in the next few frames
spark the dame, ignition flame, it’ll all be told in the next few frames

getting lost, out of my mind again
alone, but not for long again, I’m in
love with that and that and that
never can guess where you’ll end up at

it’s light though, I don’t see the dark
embark on this, your greatest spark
spark the dame, ignition flame, it’ll all be told in the next few frames
spark the dame, ignition flame, it’ll all be told in the next

this is an always, and so it will stay
here we remain against time

this is an always, and so it will stay
here we remain against time

you’re in my sights, but I’m out of time
I try to smile, yeah, yeah, you’re so fine
and with lockjaw, it’s all on the line
alright, alright, it’s not a crime
innocent, but there’s noise in here
gone is time, as the end is near
pride is fallen, sigh, withdraw
I’m leaving now, as I’ve stalled the talk
I found a girl, a screeching halt

Starter's Pistol
(A.Ruffcorn)

I love you so
I love you so, incompletely

jump right out with the starter’s pistol
whistle, whistle, whistle while you gain dismissal
the heavy-hitting baby-sitting of loogie spitting
spoiled bratty ugly rich kids, is all we ever do

keep an ear out for the starter’s pistol
jump right out, watch her beauteous missles
annihilate cynical ridicule, it is true
blue spirits plead for absinthe and glow green

preen the sheen and place me at the scene
at the time of the crime which is naught but fraught
with everything I feared and sought: rhyme
it is about time

pointless recess, disjoint bizness,
rake it all away, the dying leaves of excess
sadness, madness, listless, listless
take it all away, you’re the best, just confess

kill your doubts, save the day
douse the spray of winner’s way
rout the ratings, spared of hatings
rid the world of all complaining

raise your tail, rouse your tale
tell the story of your life
‘longside newfound beautiful wife
no strife no right, no champagne no gain

don’t sell yourself short, old sport, in the rain
don’t sell yourself short, old sport

you are beautiful, oh so beautiful
stare away, girl, stay astray, girl
it can only lead to, it can only be you
and me sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G

glasses fog from heavy breathing, amidst bouts of deceiving
but the latter doesn’t matter, as long as you kiss me hard
faster, better, wetter than her, and you’re looking very clever
but the latter doesn’t matter, you’re making this so hard
mouth the words, you sing along, about to turn off this song
starter’s pistol, lonely gun, you might be the only one

you might be the only one


>back to top<

Battleground
(A.Ruffcorn)

if you’d ever find in me, something of hypocrisy
and if you’d ever find in me, I’ve made another enemy
kissing bride with no value, abdomen is all built for you
and candlelight is all you got, so pretty thing, fear it not
skid to the floor abound, I found, to pick myself up off the ground
to fail the sound, to flail around, send mail to jail and run aground
beat the beast in the butterfly, backpedal away from the basic lies
I’ve failed, I've failed, I've failed, I've failed...

if you ever find in me, a fragment of fragility
and if you ever find in me, I’ve killed an opportunity
pissing pride, and rusting new, destroying freedom just for you
and blatant strikes against my might, my pretty thing, we’ve had a night
skid beneath your shallow need, I bleed dishonest, take the lead
to fall down now, hearts crumble down, emboldened sound, forever bound
beat the beat, and hang me high, and blast away the sordid lies
I’ve failed, I've failed, I've failed, I've failed...

the battleground is all around
and the paragon has not been found

so if you’d ever find in me, ‘arborings of anxiety
and if you’d ever find in me, the bitter end of my debris
running sides with ocean towns, amidst a dragging anchor-down
and downright luck has seen you drown, so pretty thing, dance around
clear the decks, abound, I’m found, to slick my hair back, to the sound
set out to sea, abaft the beam, and sting of the bee is in love with me
defeat the death of the dark-canal, snag the jackline, live for now
let's sail, let's sail, let's sail, let’s sail...
away

the battleground is all around
and the paragon has not been found

Thief
(A.Ruffcorn)

I stole this beat from the street street street
it’s how I cut cut cut my teeth
it’s a feat of elite bollocks, riding underneath
at the time, bear in mind, that this really isn’t me
but being in the lead on the street street street
I am happy to steal, so happy to scheme, so
destroy your simple sympathy, as you don’t know
I am a thief

I stole this beat, I stole this rhyme, I stole this cut, it is not mine
I stole this song, and just in time, it is not wrong, there is no crime
it helps me to assuage my fears and push along my best ideas
I stole this

I’m not a musician

I stole this beat from the street street street
it’s how I cut cut cut my teeth
it’s a neat neat fast blast outta this bind
a good good girl is hard to find
not impossible though with just one hard
seize, if you please, I am a thief

I stole this beat, I stole this rhyme, I stole this cut, it is not mine
I stole this song, and just in time, it is not wrong, there is no crime
it helps me on my merry way, it kills my doubts and saves the day
I stole this

I’m not a musician

Savanah
(A.Ruffcorn)

here I am in Havana, with Savanah
where the revolution is gonna
take me to the, to the next dance
and you bounce right outta your cute pants

on the dance floor, on the beachfront
in the closet, wherever you make it
if you allow me, trust your instincts
as I’ve trusted mine, you look so fine

in Havana, with Savanah
and the revolution is underway
say you will, will, will it to be
a life with me, or a night, or three

you and me will crush this
future black bleakness, no traps
come with me to shore
abhor the absence, no more

what’ll we do, Sav, what’ll we do
what’ll we do, when I meet you


>back to top<

Say Hello!!
(A.Ruffcorn)

being easy, and bullies are gone
it’s so good, it’s so golden
it’s so fine, I’m so lonely

say hello to your mind, it’s so hard to refine
and it’s hard to describe, and it’s hard to describe
and its…

fancy as you, inside of this song
and you sing on, moving along, you say
I love you, you promise me more
promise me, babe, you’ll find me today

seeing bleary, and bullets are flying
it’s so grand, it’s so bold
it’s so fine, she’s so lovely

say hello to your mind, it’s so hard to refine
and it’s hard to describe, and it’s hard to describe
and it’s…

anxious as you, inside of this song
and you sing on, moving along, you say
I love you, you promise me more
promise me, babe, you’ll find me today

being merely, you’re caught in a cage
it’s so wrought, it’s so staged,
all the rage, she’s so violent

say hi to your mind, it’s so hard to refine
and it’s hard to describe, and it’s hard to describe
and it’s…

dancing as you, inside of this song
and you sing on, moving along, you say
I love you, you promise me more
promise me, babe, you’ll find me today

So Long
(A.Ruffcorn)

how long can this drag on
you’ve been gone, so long
I’m in a story, I’m in a once upon
a time long before you went gone
before the dark crept on and on

I practice smiling every day
and wonder why you went away
and as the dark creeps on and on
how much longer can this drag on

so long, honesty
so long, integrity
so long, we never had it at all

so long, as we lie awake
so long, deceiving every way
so long, I never know what is true

so long, I don’t know what to say
so long, let’s kiss it all away
so long, I never thought it was you

so long, what an odyssey
so long, how’d it turn out this way
so long, I never had it all

Geneva Spur
(A.Ruffcorn)

crossing the ice-field, on the way
to the day, we stray from everyone in everyway
and we’ll say we’re most alive
when we’re closest of all to death
and other such clichés, clichés, clichés, clichés are OK with…

fear above the atmosphere
cold air, frozen tears
the last front, the last tier
of a former final frontier, and me

I’m free now to pursue some other dreams
and eventually death will have its way with me
so for now I’ll write it down
for in the future when I’m not around
when I’m buried underground, sleeping forever sound

twenty-nine thou forty-one feet above me
the vastness lasts, lonely, lovely


>back to top<

Trounced (To Smithereens)
(A.Ruffcorn)

I’m sitting here, looking in the mirror
drinking ginger ale, I’m on the ball
tomorrow’s a big day, so I’ll stay awake
tired in the morning, what else is new

my dying dream was to have a girl like you
now that I’ve got you, what else can I do
but die, die, die, die, die, die, die, die

this song has gone astray
since you’ve gone, since you’ve gone away
and this song, is all I desire
sing along, the situation’s dire

The Gentleman Explorer
(A.Ruffcorn)

horn’s holding static, I’m erratic
holding on what doesn’t matter
in the matter of circumstances
I have taken a million chances

landscape of the uniform
I pledge allegiance to the storm
of darkest shades, don’t shy away
explore the depths, exchange the day

well on your way, trigger the start
of something smart, and follow art
all of the while, I promise I’ll
remain a gentleman of…

style of the smuggler’s hidden art
with a smile from this smuggler’s broken heart
with the style of the smuggler’s hidden art
with a smile from this smuggler’s broken heart

forlorn emphatic, I’m ecstatic
grasping hold of all that scatters
in the matter of sleight of hand
I have taken you to the land of

grandeur of the parlor form
I pledge you all embrace the storm
of darkest shades, don’t fly away
explore the abyss, forgo the day

well on your way, light up, and start
quite bright, you’re smart, your focused art
all of the while, I promise I’ll
remain a gentleman of…

style of the smuggler’s hidden art
with a smile from this smuggler’s broken heart
with the style of the smuggler’s hidden art
with a smile from this smuggler’s broken heart
