Track Name: Gem
Gem
Music & Lyrics By: Nathaniel Hockman

I wasn't looking for gold.
I was looking for a gem.
I wasn't looking for gold.
I was looking for a gem.
I wasn't looking for gold.
I was looking for a gem.
I wasn't looking for gold.
I was lucky for my lips to touch them.
I wasn't looking for gold.
I was looking for a gem.
I wasn't looking for gold.
I was looking for a gem.
I wasn't looking for gold.
I was looking for a gem.
I wasn't looking for gold.
I was lucky for my lips to touch them.

Then everything changes.
There's nothing like an untold story,
a moment of significant glory.
But a girl like you
a gem like you,
I do adore, more and
through and through.
Where are you?
Where are you?
The people that I speak of,
Where are you?
Where are you?
Where are you?
The people that I speak of,
Where are you?
Going to have to find,
search and find,
the people that I'm missing,
the gem that I am kissing.
Going to have to find,
search and find,
the people that I'm missing,
the gem that I am kissing.

What did they tell you to say?
Not they but him and his thoughts they say,
I'm nor here but there,
but I'd like to think that everything I thought of
comes out the way that I thought of.

What did they tell you to say?
Not they but him and his thoughts they say,
I'm nor here but there,
but I'd like to think that everything I thought of
comes out the way that I thought of.

I nearly break away
the moods I stray
and get rid of,
a salty end to a day.
That's what my brain
thinks of today.

It's not just the sounds I hear in my head,
but the colors that I see instead.
In the mind-frame of a creative being,
that's the type of gem that I'm seeing.
It's not just the sounds I hear in my head,
but the colors that I see instead.
In the mind-frame of a creative being,
that's the type of gem that I'm seeing.
It's not just the sounds I hear in my head,
but the colors that I see instead.
In the mind-frame of a creative being,
that's the type of gem that I'm seeing.
It's not just the sounds I hear in my head,
but the colors that I see instead.
In the mind-frame of a creative being,
that's the type of gem that I'm seeing.

Lickety-split I jump back and I feel the groove,
I never knew if the groove could make,
you move but I hope you had fun today,
this is what I say.
Lickety-split I jump back and I feel the groove,
I never knew if the groove could make,
you move but I hope you had fun today,
this is what I say.
Lickety-split I jump back and I feel the groove,
I never knew if the groove could make,
you move but I hope you had fun today,
this is what I say.
Lickety-split I jump back and I feel the groove,
I never knew if the groove could make,
you move but I hope you had fun today,
this is what I say.

Flustered Jubilee
Music & Lyrics By: Nathaniel Hockman

We never knew,
right in plain site when the time was right,
not until we found the solution
to all things bright.
We never knew,
right in plain site when the time was right,
not until we found the solution
to all things bright.

Nothing sad and unhappy and bad,
not blue
yes that is true.
The things that I am writing,
I'm writing for you.
Nothing sad and unhappy and bad,
not blue
yes that is true.
The things that I am writing,
I'm writing for you.

Feeling blue,
low flying kite being flown night,
something of the past I don't care to look back on,
I don't care to be blue.
That's the switch I got to turn on.
Feeling blue,
low flying kite being flown night,
something of the past I don't care to look back on,
I don't care to be blue.
That's the switch I got to turn on.

Nothing sad and unhappy and bad,
not blue
yes that is true.
The things that I am writing,
I'm writing for you.
Nothing sad and unhappy and bad,
not blue
yes that is true.
The things that I am writing,
I'm writing for you.

If you gotta get out,
get out while you can,
as for me I'm happy,
I could repeat it again.

So flustered,
everything feels so clustered,
inside of our brains.
This time the good not bad,
the feelings remain the same.
Track Name: Mixed At Six
Mixed at Six
Music & Lyrics By: Nathaniel Hockman

Can you feel it?
Happiness dripping down walls.
It's a wonderful feeling,
crawling in and on wood that was cut by saws.
Time will be taken,
maybe mistaken,
I'm into song making.
Hearts will be broken,
but it's my treat
give your ears a good soaking.
Track Name: Sense
Sense
Music & Lyrics By: Nathaniel Hockman

You can't let yourself be full of sorrow.
You can't let yourself be full of sorrow.
You can't let yourself be full of sorrow.

Sorrow can be changed.
Sorrow can be changed.
Sorrow can be changed.

It's what I had to say,
It's what I had to say,
It's what I had to say,
It's what I had to say today.

It's what I had to say,
It's what I had to say,
It's what I had to say,
And I did it today.

It's what I had to say,
I did it today,
It's what I had to say.

Bring your friends along,
and have them stay till the end.

This is a standstill brought to you from me.
You know the feeling when you sail?
Track Name: Day Dream
Day Dream
Music & Lyrics By: Nathaniel Hockman

The worlds so big when your trying to get out,
of the place that your currently living,
sometimes it's not as small as we all hear about.
The worlds so small when we least expect it,
but it seems so big when your alone,
trapped and neglected.
Track Name: The Dripping Dream
Dripping Dream
Music & Lyrics By: Nathaniel Hockman

The kindness of those
who be who they be,
they were the reason
the other side saw me.
A night to remember,
oh so much to me,
tampering with the other world,
it all went down on Halloween.

But look at me now,
I'm on it again
see me run, see me spin.
Track Name: Almost Completely
Almost Completely
Music & Lyrics By: Nathaniel Hockman

You gotta lay down the beat,
you gotta lay on the funk.

I don't know how to write a song
people like you doing the right thing,
then there's me doing it wrong.
I don't care I work over there
this is what you all will see,
and this is what I call my hobby.
Rub the worlds belly and tickle its toes.

This is reality,
this is what my eyes do see,
this is what my brain does know,
I had to pawn my turntable and my microphone.

Not so perfectly,
this is how it sat in front of me
and I will always say,
It's almost completely,
almost completely,
almost completely,
almost completely.

I don't know how to write a song
people like you doing the right thing,
then there's me doing it wrong.
I don't care I work over there
this is what you all will see,
and this is what I call my hobby.
Rub the worlds belly and tickle its toes.

This is reality,
this is what my eyes do see,
this is what my brain does know,
I had to pawn my turntable and my microphone.

Not so perfectly,
this is how it sat in front of me
and I will always say,
It's almost completely,
almost completely,
almost completely,
almost completely.

The Confused
Music & Lyrics By: Nathaniel Hockman

A little bit confused
don't know what to do.
A little bit confused
don't know what to do.
A little bit confused
don't know what to do.
A little bit confused
don't know what to do.

I've walked these hills
and I've seen the sea,
and I've been to the world around me
and I feel good
and you should too,
singing and laughing is what I like to do.

A little bit confused
don't know what to do.

I've walked these hills
and I've seen the sea,
and I've been to the world around me
and I feel good
and you should too,
singing and laughing is what I like to do.

A little bit confused
don't know what to do.

Normally not the one to pick and choose,
I'm just here to amuse,
when I wrote this song I was damn there confused.
give me another sip of my...
