I’m Not Going That Way

Words and music by Nate Purscelley
Arrangement by Deepest Darkest

Lyrics

Please…please….spare me I can’t take anymore.
We sweat and grind,
Work our fingers down to the bone,
Then you just get fired.
Pay or pray, then you might just get one more day.
Still it’s will. Can rip it from you now anyway,
Reason ain't required.

Hey…I’m not going that way,
This is where I will stay,
And I hope you’ll be okay.

Wrath, not math is how you justify hurricanes,
Or quakes no thanks
Your logic seems a bit of insane.
And why is Vegas standing?
Who are you? Prophet sent from somewhere above?
You say you pray every day that they will find love.
Your honor is outstanding.

Hey…I’m not going that way,
This is where I will stay,
(and I) hope you’ll be okay. Bah bah bah bah.

See…see…your motives are too simply explained.
You bite, and gnash, but never take any of the blame.
You’re just obeying orders.
Who are you
Prophet sent from somewhere above?
You say you pray, every day that they will find love.
Your honor is outstanding.

Hey…I’m not going that way,
This is where I will stay,
And I hope you’ll be okay.

Mookie Blaylock (Back Off, Please)

Words and music by Nate Purscelley
Arrangement by Deepest Darkest

Lyrics

Challenge us and we’ll knock you off,
Better step back, Mookie Blaylock.
Cuz we’re nobody’s fool, believe it.
Don’t lose your cool, you’ll need it..
So unless you wanna go….

You woke up a sleeping giant,
Hey Big Country, best be flyin.
And if words could do physical damage,
You would need more than one bandage.
Now unless you wanna go….

Back off please…
Don’t wanna use force.
But I might be forced to.
Life’s been hard since my divorce.
Don’t wanna use force.

Back off please or we’ll come unglued.
Listen jackoff, we’re gonna Ron Ron you.
We will verbally lay a beating.
Imagine words we’re not repeating.
So unless you wanna go….

Lesson learned, Kiki Vandeweigh.
Lest you get burned, exit that a way.
Cause you know we got verbs that are seething.
Our adjectives will leave you heaving.
Now unless you wanna go….

Back off please…
Don’t wanna use force.
But I might be forced to.
Life’s been hard since my divorce.
Don’t wanna use force.
But I might be forced to.
But I might be forced to.

I’m a kind man , I do what I can,
but it hits the fan, the longer I just stand.
Rumble in town, I turn around,
Follow the sound of chumps hittin the ground.
Yall get inside, yall better hide
Call Doctor White, we’re gonna brawl tonight.
Cover me Jim, I’m jumpin in,
fights don’t begin with me but I finish em.

Back off please…
Don’t wanna use force.
But I might be forced to.
Life’s been hard since my divorce.
Don’t wanna use force.
But I might be forced to.

Why Did You Do It

Words and music by Nate Purscelley
Arrangement by Deepest Darkest

Lyrics

I can’t think, of any words to say to you.
You’re a crazy bitch, it’s true.
You’ve got the demons, yes you do.
Try and think, of just one human that aint you.
You’re a selfish bitch, we knew.
And what you do makes evening news.

Why did you lose it, why’d you abuse it.
Why did you do it, why did you do it.
You can’t diffuse it, stop with excuses.
Why did you do it why did you do it…why?

You - will still be,
The preacher’s kid with the skull tattoo.
A pathetic bitch, who threw,
Out the only good that came from you.

I can’t think, of any words to say to you.
You’re a crazy bitch, it’s true.
You’ve got the demons, yes you do.

Why did you lose it, why’d you abuse it.
Why did you do it, why did you do it.
You can’t diffuse it, stop with excuses.
Why did you do it why did you do it…why?

If you can beat it,
I believe you won’t repeat it,
But why give you a second chance.

I still sink, into a nightmare that you drew.
What an evil witch will brew,
Will steal the breath away from you.
I will try, but mine is not to question why.
But believe it bitch, aye,
Yours is but to do or die.

If you can treat it,
I believe you won’t repeat it,
But I won’t give a second chance.
If you can treat it,
I believe you won’t repeat it,
But I won’t. No.

You are a bad human.
You are a bad human.
You are a bad human. 

Pencil to the Paper

by Nate Purscelley

Lyrics

Underneath the grin,
Conner doesn’t know where to begin.
He’s vowed to write again,
And today’s gonna start out with a win.
He settles on a theme:
“The Comeback Trail is Steeper Than it Seems”
Pushes down a key,
And just like that you’re back into the scene.
In a day, it’s a day old.

Put that pencil to the paper,
Don’t just read about your heroes.
Get it done, repeat, get it done.

Driven by a dream,
You get about a mile down the road.
Repetition’s king,
So Conner’s gonna log the hours at home.
And upside down it seems,
But Conner’s got an ace inside his sleeves.
In a day, you’re a day old.

Put that pencil to the paper,
Don’t just read about your heroes.
Get it done, repeat, get it done.

Doubt is part of the deal,
Gotta park it in a field today.
So play on,
Mistakes are your friend.

Once in the afternoon,
Once in the bathroom,
Once when you wake.
Two times a day you get,
Two times less ways,
To regret how you,
Spent the time given to us,
On this planet yet do not forget.
Traces of older you,
Spaces where mold grew,
Might slither back.
Fortune smiles down on those
Mofos who pound it out,
Day after day after day…
Put that pencil to the paper.
Put that, put that, put that.

All for You


By Nate Purscelley and Chandler Strutz
Arrangement by Deepest Darkest

Lyrics

I may be foolish, I’m a fool for you.
I may be flawed, at least you know I’m true.
My heart was broken, now it beats for you,
My chest is open,
yet it’s not an open wound.

Nobody knows the way you make me feel
Like I’m punch-drunk behind the wheel
Like you do…I’m all for you.

White-clouded heavens,
I’m amazed with you.
My eyes are grateful it ain't pay per view.
Insults intended for the other fools.
Thick skulls and eunuchs,
Would have fought for you.

Nobody knows the way you make me feel
Like I’m punch-drunk behind the wheel
Like you do…I’m all for you.

Reckless emotions are in check with you.
My mind’s an ocean,
But your light has led me through
All the loneliness I hide.
Stay with me I need you.

We were unconscious for a day or two.
To my surprise you stayed when we came to.
I wanted just your body close to me.
Confounded mistress you won’t ever leave.

Reckless emotions are in check with you.
My mind’s an ocean,
But your light has led me through
All the loneliness I hide.
Stay with me I need you.

Everyone knows how far in love I fell,
And who can help but kiss and tell
You know the way you make me feel
Like I’m punch-drunk behind the wheel…
