You and I,  we’re no strangers we’ve had our failures and faced them all you and I never under cover we were always lovers never alone you and I we know where we’re going what we’re towing and what to leave behind you and I sometimes together alone but we’ve stood tall on common ground Because we’ve found the space  that makes us feel real and realized that space pulls us closer still You and I We’ve found treasure in stormy weather we can see the light You and I we don’t know what’s in store we know we won’t need more if it’s you and I

You keep on pushin and you don’t stop Keep finding records that you must top But you don’t realize I’m no spring chicken In this race I’ve got your number and your post card I see your angle and you don’t like That I can make you smile When you know that you don’t even mean it A subtle grin, a hand shake, while the fire burns below the surface you just feel that you already won Punched you’re ticket on the fast train Cutting corners and the growing pains But you don’t realize, there’s a lot to be learned From this race A subtle grin, a hand shake, while the fire burns below the surface you just feel that you already won I too was naïve Once felt we’re on the same page But now I realize, You don’t feel the same way You keep on pushin and you don’t stop Keep finding records that you must top But you don’t realize I’m no spring chicken In this race A subtle grin, a hand shake, while the fire burns below the surface all the while You don’t even know my story or where I’m coming from You just feel that you already won

Take a look what the cat drug in Pick it up and lay it on the bed I keep wondering when will this end? It’s time we face it again Don’t you feel it’s so apropos? You’re behavior has put you in a hole It’s time that you climb on out And try to start from the start You see you make mountains from your molehills Silver from your gold Feel that the whole world is against you But you don’t know There is a whole world that is for you Loved ones at your door But you can’t even hear them knocking So you don’t know The fire burns but you can’t feel it The light it makes, you can’t seem to see All you see is your effigy And how it burns in the field Always melancholy malcontent making mountains from your molehills never capable of seeing the glass is half full Take a look what the cat drug in Pick it up and lay it on the bed I keep wondering when will this end? It’s time we face it again You see you make mountains from your molehills Silver from your gold Feel that the whole world is against you But you don’t know

Read between the lines Of the current state You find it no surprise Still love debates All the things you learned When you were a kid But you never understood You still contemplate Life and love And lessons from, the loving Don’t care to know yourself Or that’s how you spin it Telling all your friends It’s overrated What we need the most You seem quite content Pretending without While your heart longs for it Life and love And lessons from the loving Life and Love, and lessons from The Loving, the loving, the loving…

One by one Said and done Say goodbye, say goodbye memories made time still fades feel the change, feel the change take me up there moving round and round where all time slows and feet don’t touch the ground space and time reflecting light passing by, passing by ground to sky circling time satellite, satellites take me up there moving round and round where all time slows and feet don’t touch the ground I don’t want to go but I don’t want to stay I don’t want to grow old but I don’t want to be a kid I just want to ride a satellite with you where all time slows down and things come into view make us new ride a sky so blue face to face loves in space we provide, we provide

what has happened to me something’s gone astray friends don’t seem to come around family don’t want to stay somethings broken in me but feel it can be fixed I have no clue just where it starts or where it feels it ends I have pure intentions put to the test but feel a character actor at best Sorry if I wronged you in the past But you’re gonna have to get in line to kick my ass deal with pain that cripples many but I've learned not to complain Opioid dreams used to be a perk Even those have seemed to fade but I have pure intentions put to the test I feel a character actor at best Id love to talk out all my problems but I’d hate to come off as a whiner So I quietly sit and ponder solutions pop more pills trying to to abuse them one thing you need to know I really didn't want to put on a show wish I was a better closer than starter maybe than I would have gotten farther I have pure intentions put to the test but feel a character actor at best Sorry if I wronged you in the past But you’re gonna have to get in line to kick my ass

I know when to go out And when to stay in Get things done I catch the paper boy But things don't really change I'm standing in the wind But I never wave bye-bye But I try I try There's no sign of life It's just the power to charm I'm lying in the rain But I never wave bye-bye But I try I try Never gonna fall for Modern Love (walks beside me) Modern Love (walks on by) Modern Love (gets me to the Church on Time) Church on Time (terrifies me) Church on Time (makes me party) Church on Time (puts my trust in God and Man) God and Man (no confessions) God and Man (no religion) God and Man (don't believe in Modern Love)

Driveways marked Tires chart An exit from the scene That’s blue, but once was green Treetops bend Clouds roll in The leaves begin to fall From the rain that collects on them all No one is perfect, But there are perfect storms We can agree to disagree But the ones that win Will be the thieves I’m praying for awakening Balloons get filled Emotions spill A stressful time for all When the guards that we hold begin to fall Decorations fall The monster roars The kids begin to run From the one, that’s supposed to love No one is perfect, But there are perfect storms We can agree to disagree But the ones that win Will be the thieves I’m praying for awakening The dust has set Situation fixed Clearer heads prevail But can damage, that’s been done, come undone Time does fly Clouds subside The sun is surely seen And takes what was blue and makes it green

I want to see you Meet you again A chance to change The way that I listened If we had seen the end, We could have begun again Memories linger Time marches on It’s the same singer But a different song Seeking right and wrong Trying to make sense of it all Lessons in life aren’t free Who says experience is cheap I wish you hadn’t paid dearly But you did And now were learning Learning to live About how to move on It may seem easy To those that don’t know You and who you were And what you brought to this world Lessons in life aren’t free Who says experience is cheap I wish you hadn’t paid dearly But you did And now were learning Now we’re learning And now we’re learning Now we’re learning I want to see you Meet you again A chance to change The way that I listen If we had seen the end, We could have begun again Lessons in life aren’t free Who says experience is cheap I wish you hadn’t paid dearly But you did And now were learning

Lets try to shake this but we can’t hide The next time’s sure Sure to send us reelin Baby we can’t steal something we can’t buy but if it’s given you know we’re sure to try All the sun and the stars Even those that seem far We can wish upon Around the world Every dream and every joy has a star So let’s pretend We can rewind the clock And go back to a time A time that we regret Yeah I know We can’t change the past All the sun and the stars Even those that seem far We can wish upon Around the world Every dream and every joy has a star So let’s pretend We can rewind the clock You and I can find that same bright star One that we’ll see When we close our eyes Or maybe we’ll find nothing Nothing at all But if I wish hard enough Maybe we will after all All the sun and the stars Even those that seem far We can wish upon Around the world Every dream and every joy has a star So let’s pretend We can rewind the clock

It soothes me I know It’s presence is always so warm Couldn’t get more If I tried Lucid and shows, Straightforward and easy to know Couldn’t get more If I tried Its measure I hold It fills me to overflow Builds me when I’m broke And makes me feel whole It soothes me I know It’s presence is always so warm Couldn’t get more It moves through the dark of the night Cutting it’s light onto the sea Present, when I feel your embrace Bringing me home with the smile on your face In the brightness of day and darkness of night you’re my sun through the clouds and my moonlight at night. Lucid and shows, Straightforward and clear as a bell Couldn’t hear more If I tried It soothes me I know It’s presence is always so warm Couldn’t get more If I tried In the brightness of day and darkness of night you’re my sun through the clouds and my moonlight at night.

When you open your heart And you let someone in When you let down your walls And your head starts to spin It feels like the first time And you wont let it go You can’t get her off your mind It’s starting to show You feel they're not a lot of options You feel the world is ending soon Time to close your eyes, begin to run Run kid run, until you find the one Being young and in love Has an advantage Never know what’s in store And there’s no baggage It takes some time To find the right one There may be some pain On this winding road You feel they're not a lot of options You feel the world is ending soon Time to close your eyes, begin to run Run kid run, until you find the one That loves you for you Until you find the one You can love for, who they are too. Until you find the one, find the one Run, until you find the one

Play it safe, stay the course Don’t want to upset the balance of force Toe the line and do the time One day you’ll see but right now your blind From the politics of greed Controlling your mind, feeding your blindness you see It is real, and it will bring you to your knees Afraid to say, hesitant to show So you keep doing all that you’re told Somewhere in time, you’ll learn to see You are a prisoner but you can be free From the politics of greed Controlling your mind, feeding your blindness you see It is real, and it will bring you to your knees Can’t you feel it when it comes over you? Makes you feel helpless with nothing to do If you’re soul remains intact, realize it’s not what you take But what you give back Play it safe, don’t stay the course It’s time to upset the balance of force Toe the line and in your own time Your once dim light will begin to shine Over politics of greed Controlling your mind feeding your blindness you see It is real, and it will bring you to your knees Unless you choose to believe That you can be free, from the greed

I thought I’d feel like it’s all but over But I can see It’s not true Oh sure they’re days When I’m feeling under But all I need to do Is look at you Greying hairs Might make someone feel older A constant reminder Of the truth Another year Might make someone feel older But that someone Didn’t have you To make them feel Alive again, when they’re dancing in the rain And laughing, all their blues away And praying, for another sunny day It’s bound to come my way with you Bridge- It is true, the way that I feel is not a ruse I can’t refuse No matter how fast the days escape me, I’m fine with that as, long as you keep me Alive again, when they’re dancing in the rain And laughing, all their blues away And praying, for another sunny day It’s bound to come my way with you

about

After a short four year hiatus while: Adam studied the effects of polarizing ice caps in Alaska, Jon successfully invented a new pattern for the naming of AGI Gene codes, Takashi winning the Nobel Peace Prize for his research in how to manipulate bowel obstructions with bass frequencies and my tireless efforts to obtain patents and successfully market the world's first peanut butter milk (both regular and allergy safe), we're finally ready to regroup and share some new music with all of our fans..

Over the course of 2 years while taste testing my new peanut butter milk concept, it inspired me to write many songs. It was alarming how quickly my mind was expanded while consuming PB Milk and the urge to write took over. So here we are today just weeks before we officially release this creation to our friends and family!! It's been an amazing experience being involved in every step, from milking the cow on the farm to the extensive hours in the kitchen mixing various ingredients to the pasteurization process required to hopefully satisfy our consumers. So please look for PB Milk in your locally grocery store and don't forget to buy the new record while you're at it!!

Brae Detroit, Michigan

From the throne of a drummer, to standing behind a makeshift cocktail drum kit, Brandon (Brae) Husken has gone from the back of the stage to the front.

Chord shape permutations of sacred geometry, catchy melodies and a rhythm centric approach to song writing, the music is thoughtfully crafted much like paint to canvas.
