Vendettas And Thunderstorms

Words and Music
By Michael Landrio

Verse 1
Lightning in my mind,
Strikes the same place every time,
I soar high and fall back down,
Think too much, burn right out,
Just another neurotic mute,
Situations don't compute,

Verse 2
Thunder in my soul,
Rumbles outta control,
And it has a certain sound,
Feet dragging on the ground,
Just like dice, I roll and crack,
I hit the wall, the wall hits back,

Verse 3
There's a fire in my heart,
Rips everything apart,
Oh, it has a certain feel,
Being down feels too real,
Just another dramatic fool,
No exception to the rule,

Verse 4
Bad dreams found me again,
With a message to send,
Every bad choice made in life,
Will haunt you in the night,
Oh, we have our secret wars,
Vendettas and thunderstorms,

The Whole Mess

Words And Music
By Michael Landrio

Verse 1
Life is an equation,
You try solving it all,
With quotations
And your alcohol,
Then you look in the bottle,
And there's nothing left,
Come on, come on,
Let go the whole mess,

Verse 2
You sang in the shower,
Now you cry in the tub,
Your dreams in the attic
With your old love,
Then you dance with the mirror
In your wedding dress,
Come on, come on,
Let go the whole mess,

Bridge
Put garbage in the bag, hope it don't snap,
It can fall from the sky, land in your lap,
Get in a canoe, go across the lake,
If you fall in, doesn't make it a mistake,

Verse 3
Well, it hurts in the tooth,
When life shows you it's hand,
Gotta guard all your cards,
Like a screamin' madman,
Then you clean out your drawers,
Get things off your chest,
Come on, come on,
Let go the whole mess,

Flew And Fell







Flew And Fell

Words And Music
by Michael Landrio

Verse 1                                                                         
Good to see you Brother,                                    
Have a drink with me now,                                                                    
Frosted stein, a stout,                                        
Or a shot of whiskey wow,                                  
We'll talk about the children,                                         
And how they've grown,                                            
Look at old pictures,
Think we should've known? 

Chorus:
Well, well, time flew and fell,
Well, well, time flew and fell now,
Oh no, enough's enough,
Time flew and fell,
We're gonna pick it up,

Verse 2
The art of conversation,
Family and love yes,
Are lost in translation,
And a passive mud mess,
We'll hold back tears,
And look for the clues,
The toys in the attic,
And the tiny, old shoes,

Chorus:
Well, well, time flew and fell,
Well, well, time flew and fell now,
Oh no, enough's enough,
Time flew and fell,
We're gonna pick it up,

Verse 3
Twenty long minutes,
Ten years to the day - ay,
Since we stood still
Long enough to say "hey,"
You've been so far
And it's been so long,
I don't wanna forget
Where my memories belong,

Chorus:
Well, well, time flew and fell,
Well, well, time flew and fell now,
Oh no, enough's enough,
Time flew and fell,
We're gonna pick it up,

The Politician

Words and Music
By Michael Landrio

Verse 1
He has a gray greasy suit
The politician leaves us poison fruit,
He has two hundred ties,
The politician has one for every lie,

Chorus:
Conclusion conclusion conclusion
The deck is stacked,
Division division division, division,
Holds the total back,

Verse 2
Sometimes he cares who you are,
It's you who buys his lunch and brand new car,
The signs that promote his campaign,
Clutter every yard, every year it's the same,

Chorus:
Conclusion conclusion conclusion
The deck is stacked,
Division division division, division,
Holds the total back,

Verse 3
He eats breakfast, sticky buns,
The politician tries to hide each one,
We see through the smoke and mirrors,
The politician relies on human fears,

Chorus:
Conclusion conclusion conclusion
The deck is stacked,
Division division division, division,
Holds the total back,
