Lyrics by Pyeng Threadgill




What a waste of time
And what a waste of money

I’ve got mouths to feed
Buildings and bridges and roads to build

And I love you so, you know
But you watch too many of them damn talk-shows

Beats and pieces. Moody, but don't call it "downtempo." As Baudelaire wrote of Modern Sleeping, " is a modern attitude, one that has been much sought after in the modern world. I like to rock it at night."
