about

Coolzey Los Angeles, California

Golden era hip-hop roots planted in black Iowa dirt are the foundation. Growth tempered by alternative era rock influence. This along with a love for the juxtaposition of the dark, horrific nature of life paired with a slapstick and comedic view of the world allow for a wide, unpredictable arsenal ranging from soul-spilling indie bedroom rock to wise-cracking battle rap and on to radio pop. ... more

Track Name: Old Machine
There's lots of reefer in this old machine. There's lots of people in my mind. And if I stay out 'til the sun is gone, won't be afraid of what I'll find. There's lots of Jesuses in poetry. There's lots of creatures in my bed. Why did you ask who when you know it's me. We can't remember what was said. Can't keep the fire fed, so I can't stay stoked today.

We come a long way but we still can't sleep. Searching for fires in the night. I always say I don't know anything, but I still know what keeps me light. I tried to give you what you stole from me. You were more comfortable with theft. And here we are you're still approaching me. Why can't you see there's nothing left? You are a liar friend, so I've lost all hope today.
Track Name: Grism - Number One
ZACH

Inside out and over again
You put the upside down and you push on the end and
a million entertainers are filling their containers
with the leftover scraps from the buffet table and
I'm a million and one
Spit the old gold mantra from the diffident sun
The indifferent one
til you try to take it back
then you have em at attention

Of all the crazy things we've done this has to rank as number one

Well I found out that it's over again
and I'm not surprised no I never have been
and all the stone cold miners
nineteen forty-niners
couldn't put my ass back together again
Hail the prodigal son
He only came home just to get his gun
It's time to settle the score
but they keep on coming back
cus the policy's open door

GRACE

It's not our time
We don't wanna wait in line
I don't wanna drink the wine

Of all the crazy things we've done this has to rank as number one.
Track Name: Driving
when i'm driving away from you i just can't read anything
when i'm driving away from you i see smoke and fire
when i'm driving away from you i just can't see anyone
when i'm driving away from you i feel so old
when i'm driving away from you i need cigarettes and alcohol
when i'm driving away from you i just want to stay asleep
when i'm driving away from you i just keep looking at the phone
waiting for you to call me
and tell me you changed your mind
and ask me please to come back
to tell me baby that you need me
but the phone it never rings

when i'm driving toward you i just don't need anything
when i'm driving toward you i can feel no pain
when i'm driving toward you i think everything's possible
when i'm driving toward you i don't feel those chains
though i know it'll only last a few days
though i know that you won't want me to stay
when i'm driving toward you i sing all the way
when i'm driving toward you i sing
Track Name: Say Cheese
Well you gone off on your own
All the fussing and fighting damn near made you sick
You don't hear me
You don't hear me
You don't hear me
You don't hear me
You leave my ass alone
So I smoked some grass and grabbed my guitar pick
You can't see me
You can't see me
You can't see me
You can't see me
I was trying to get my trouble on
Baby don't you worry I asked for it
You don't owe me
You don't owe me
You don't owe me shit

Goddamn
I'm still smiling at the camera, man
Go on snap that pic
I am getting over what I have to and
I am adding on to my shtick

Well that's not all that I can do
Hold up now
I got this other trick
You can't rate me
You can't rate me
You can't rate me
You can't rate me
After all we've been through
Damned if I know what to make of it
You can't mold me
You can't mold me
You can't mold me
You can't mold me
I'm just trying to stay legit
While I'm down here
Fighting in this pit
You can't make me
You can't make me
You can't make me sick

Goddamn
I'm still smiling at the camera, man
Go on snap that pic
I am getting over what I have to and
I am adding on to my shtick
Track Name: The Drama
First up on the list is a victim
Was a big fish in a small town
Whoever listened
he would tell tales
Of how he was running shit
But really he was just sniffin blow and playing Call of Duty Til the AM
Sleepin all day he stopped payin for the drugs
Started burnin wannabe small town thugs over ounces of green
Collecting guns
His little team disbanded
On some mutiny
He even took his family for loot
Sitting on a dirty futon
Cleaning his pieces
That he never shoot
Bearing no fruit
Telling his friends back on the East Coast
That these little Midwest kids is getting taken for they milquetoast
But really now he's all alone
When he's off the phone
Burned too many bridges
Bad business bad karma
Now he's itchin
To take the weight off
And be free from it
Starin down the barrel
To see what he could see from it

He caught the drama

Next up on the list
Is a sister
Lookin for love in the wrong places
Whoever kissed her
Fell into a web of worries and stress
Yes duress was the only way she knew
How to express her love
She would push pull and shove
Until her lover would snap
She didn't know that she was
Baiting a trap
Caught up in a circle of vicious
Denial
never thought for a sec that she would have to stand trial
For her selfish ways
So she kept stackin the days
Full of scorn and malaise
Putting her lover in a haze of confusion that eventually would turn to regret
But she had no sympathy or respect for their predicament
She just kept living with this sense of self entitlement
But nobody owed her shit
She was just a spoiled American brat
Who never gave back
Until her body turned to dirt then she was forced to at last

She caught the drama

Last and straight least
Less a man than a beast
Another hot shot kid
Who Joined the local police
No compassion or remorse
Quick to use brute force
He would take out his aggression
If he didn’t endorse
Your lifestyle
Lucky if you made it to trial
Because he saw fit to judge men
Brown skin was a no no
Woe unto a brother
Coming to his town solo
No laws were broken
Probable cause invokin
the self-righteous Christian
Puritan on a mission
What he didn’t know though
When harrassin a homo
Who was just hanging out
his homie caught it on a Go Pro
Now the whole world know
Bigotry no longer local
Hate mail and death threats
That’s when his wife left
She took the kids
They took his badge and left him
with his gun
Slid the barrel
in his mouth and squeezed
the trigger like a coward
He went out like a sucker
For abusing his power

He caught the drama
