Old Machine 02:52
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.

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.

Driving 05:04
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

Say Cheese 01:55
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

The Drama 03:22
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

about

Coolzey Fairfield, Iowa

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
