Nebyoolae San Diego, California

Hi, I'm Mike! I write music that hopefully makes you respond with "Cool!", an appreciable nod, and at least the occasional head bang, because that's the best genre of music there is.

Track Name: Totes Plents Parks
VERSE 1
When I drive my car, and I park downtown
There’s never ever any free spots
I look and I look, but there’s none to be found
A vulture goes hungry once again

CHORUS
So I want totes plents parks
Room for all my arks
And my friends and family, too
Yeah, I want totes plents parks
A place for neurons and quarks
Clear a space, cuz I’m coming through

VERSE 2
There’s so many people and there’s so little time
That I’m not even gonna try to slow down
I’d rather not injure and I’d rather not maim
Let’s agree to disagree and disperse

CHORUS

BRIDGE
My plea is a fantasy
No way could it be done
But if you all just put aside what you want
And focus on what I want
We can make this thing happen

CHORUS
Totes plents parks
Room for all my arks
And my friends and family, too
Yeah, I want
Totes plents parks
A place for neurons and quarks
Clear a space, cuz I’m coming through

Cuz I want totes plents parks
Room for all my Starks
And my Dornes and my Lannisters, too
Yeah, I want land and grace
Just a little taste
We’ll really all be better this way
Track Name: One Bark and a Couple Murfs
VERSE 1
Gonna go outside today
Gonna make a plan today
Gonna make some noise today
At least I think I’m
Gonna shake the world someday

But no one’s really
Heard me yet, though

VERSE 2
Gonna tell him off today
Gonna finally go big today
Gonna instigate today
I’m fairly sure I’m
Gonna do something one day

But no one’s really
Seen me yet, though

I guess it’s kinda
Sad I’m still here

CHORUS
One bark
And a couple murfs
All I got is
One bark
And a couple murfs

VERSE 3
Today’s gonna be the day
It’s time to make my way
There’s nothing else to say
Except that I’m
Still not quite ready

The problem is I’m
Still not stea-dy, it’s
Still too hea-dy, I
Guess I’m still me

CHORUS
One bark
And a couple murfs
All I got is
One bark
And a couple murfs
Track Name: Polygonal People
VERSE 1
Everyone, has a side
And each one, tells a lie
No one waits, follow fates

CHORUS
Polygonal people
Wandering around
Infinite possibilities
But so many denied
Shades of glory
Tin and wine
Developing a narrative spin
Won’t cost you a dime

VERSE 2
Anyone, can know you
But can they know, who is who

CHORUS
Polygonal people
We’re drawn inside
Pixel perfect planning
Find the anodyne
Killing and stealing
Robbing the blind
Tell our stories
When we find the time

VERSE 3
There’s no one, anymore

CHORUS
Polygonal people
We’re drawn inside
Pixel perfect planning
Find the anodyne
Talking and dealing
Doing our time
Find our meaning
While we hit the grind
Track Name: Ruse
VERSE 1
The creatures down here
They can’t see or know
Darkness is their friend
And it is our foe

Blurred visions are their ceilings
All the floors are false
Forever they move on
Waltz, dance in a whirl
Reflect through a twirl
Eternal, this life passed
In the blink of an eye

CHORUS
No one has a name
You can only ever be something for a short while

VERSE 2
Shapeless and formless
Matter means little there
Being in one place can still mean
That you’re really someplace else

CHORUS
No one has a name
Everybody just pre-tends and acts like it’s still real

VERSE 3
Ooooooo
This isn't over yet, not even close
Round and round and round and round and round they spin
Hoping for something bigger than themselves
But finding only the darkness below
Track Name: Humble Obscurity
Deciding is the hardest part
When you can’t see any way
To make it all fit
To make it all right
Time to throw away your say

I saw through the fog of me
And there I found...I found you
A small part of it all
But the largest part I see
