Track Name: Federales con Ukuleles
"Why otherwise does it direct the judges to take an oath to support it? This oath certainly applies in an especial manner, to their conduct in their official character. How immoral to impose it on them, if they were to be used as the instruments, and the knowing instruments, for violating what they swear to support!"
Marbury v. Madison, 5 U.S. (1 Cranch) 137, 180 (1803).
Track Name: Breakfast Table
London's jacked and Lincoln's able
Pull a chair up to the breakfast table
The kids don't sit here anymore

Wooden tile on a marble floor
Play some Scrabble when you finish them chores
You won't get no triple score

What was the date, she went away, a better place
Oooh, I don't know, I forget, I'm sorry so
Track Name: A Soft Compunction
More than a thought
Which never could be washed
Or made true

Are cuts, but not deep
Some are given, some to keep
Oooooh

It's always gonna be this way
It never had to be this way
The greens and browns begin to fade to blue
Track Name: Exhausted By Silliness
[Human Responses:]
(1)
Internal calmness surpasses external chaos.
Trust outweighs knowledge + evidence.
Tension exists between the observed present and the imagined future
(2)
you need it the most
when it's hardest to find,
it only exists to the person feeling it
(3)
Floating on the air
Riding the wave
Connecting me to life
Track Name: Anyone Else
Standing there all alone
What is disguised and what is found
All we know is

Baby, that's where she goes
She goes when she can't have anyone
Anyone else

Staring out in the fall
Through the thick of silence there is sound
All we know is
Track Name: You Can't Undo
You pull from the old text and paste from the new
You're walking around with a jar of glue
Try command-z faithfully
But there's certain things you can't undo

You're saying things that you know ain't true
Convince some people into trusting you
Some will find a turning mind
But there's certain things you can't undo

Honey get a lawyer it's time to sue
Cuz' there ain't no right in wrongin' you
Put on a brace, a sad face
But there's certain things you can't undo

Get a magnifying glass, it's time to sleuth
Like Sherlock Holmes and Watson too
The clues will lead to a culprit's deed
But there's certain things you can't undo

Well you might of caught on what I'm rhyming to
But before you bite, don't forget to chew
It makes no sense in present tense
It concerns the things you can't undo
Track Name: From the Side
And it feels good if it's not true
And it feels good, this I know
It's not true
Not true
Not true

Neon glimmer, flash of lights
For bulbs you please and that's alright . . . alright
It's alright

Well that's alright
Let it feel good
Is that alright
But it'll be the last
Track Name: Day One
never gonna make it
never gonna make it
never gonna make it
never gonna make it
never gonna make it
never gonna make it
never gonna make it
