BeatStick Bennie Bill Fennell is awesome because he doesn't stick to just one genre, I honestly felt like "These Humans" was right out of the psychedelic era of mankind. Favorite track: These Humans.

Track Name: The Human Condition
We've got everything we need but we're so unsatisfied
reflection of our instinct, why is this where happiness resides?
We spend our days ignoring our spirit inside
undersell our worth for a dollar, just to get by

Do you have a cure for the human condition?
I do alright in a crowd but sometime i'm just wishing I could fly away
When things are going fine I will just take em for granted
when I run into drama well it feels like life it handed me a live grenade
do you have a cure for the human condition?
Track Name: Illegal
Nothing like pouring gas on a situation
Nothing like dropping a match and watching it burn
had a change of heart when the shithouse when up in flames
I was sifting through the ashes when I learned

Well it's nearly 20,000 miles to the state of Texas
Its another 800 to the heart of Mexico
the bounty hunter caught up with me around the border
the price on my head was too high couldn't let me go

In a shady run down hotel at the edge of town
there's a beat up Chevy parked outside my door
shots rang out in the blazing midday sun
a dead body and the gas pedal hit the floor

there's another illegal immigrant in Mexico
there's another illegal immigrant in Mexico
there's another illegal immigrant in Mexico
just another illegal immigrant in Mexico
Track Name: Simpatico
Well you want to go for a walk in the woods
and I want to paint the town red
when I asked you if you wanna do a little karaoke
you said you wouldn't be caught dead
I like saving for a rainy day
and you say its raining right now
you like eating anything thats green
and all I ever eat is dead cow

You want to love and I want to fight
looks like I'm sleeping on the couch tonight
Simpatico
You want to laugh and I want to cry
said we'd love each other till the day we die
Simpatico
Track Name: Ignorance
Theres an angel on the phone
but you won't pick it up
cause the small voice in the back of your mind is right
and voice will just remind that the easy way
is only rotting your soul

lalalalala lalalala

They're the small and gentle voices tell you where you need to go
but you ignore them all
They're the small and gentle voices tell you what you need to do
but you ignore them all
Track Name: Pillar of the Community
Well you started out as nothing
soon you dug yourself a hole
and you step right up to me and say WHATCHU GONNA DO?!
well I don't know
your ego and your pride they have a hold on your mind
you're walking through a peaceful world with fighting words inside
Track Name: Mr PSA - Take You Home
Its no question on the radio station who they be requesting...
Track Name: Slice of Heaven
The pale bare skin on her knee it makes an island
the still warm water from her bath it surrounds
depression is her set design
its her past its her present and it rests inside
wondering if this should be her very last sights and sounds

she can not feel a thing unless its pain
a little slice of heaven across her vain
she can not feel a thing unless its pain
just sitting there watching her life go down the drain
Track Name: These Humans
These humans
they got two arms and they got two legs
These humans
one walks by while another one begs
These humans
They are odd
Track Name: Rose Colored Glasses
Someone took my rose colored glasses
it's the first time I saw clouds in my sky
Someone took my rose colored glasses
and it hurts to see with my own two eyes
Track Name: Love Got A Hold of Me
Standing in the darkened sea
the bass gets in your bones
two turn table puppet master
spinning constructing orgy drones
sweat gyration blur of faces
some are just playing it cool
you stepped out of the darkness
you came up to me and made me a fool
Track Name: Simpatico (Featuring Mr PSA)
Well you want to go for a walk in the woods
and I want to paint the town red
when I asked you if you wanna do a little karaoke
you said you wouldn't be caught dead
I like saving for a rainy day
and you say its raining right now
you like eating anything thats green
and all I ever eat is dead cow

You want to love and I want to fight
looks like I'm sleeping on the couch tonight
Simpatico
You want to laugh and I want to cry
said we'd love each other till the day we die
