    Here lies the skeletal remains of what was to be my 2nd RPM solo album. It was intended to be a fully fleshed out acoustic album but I abandoned it pretty early on with no final takes or drum tracks.
    Originally scheduled for release March 2nd 2016

Track Name: RPM One
dada da da na ha
Track Name: Acoustic Jam
mumble mumble
Track Name: Bred Crumbs
wandering around the forest
came upon a house of stone
chair was nary high enough
or bed was nary comfortable
probably'd never think you'd notice
how empty is the porridge bowl

you knew better
you're no saint

wandering around the forest
came upon a house of scones
cage was nary hot enough
her ovens burned them all to bones
you'd never think you'd notice
well how emptys your porridge bowl

and your found half awake
miles away
find your face ten miles away
we'll find a way
to have a wake
have a wake
half awake
Track Name: Before I Was Born
I have memories
I have memories from before I was born
I have memories from before I was born
I have memories from before I was born
I have memories
before I was born

I was born into this just a little more pissed off
than average

I have memories from before I was born
I appreciate the smell of gunpowder
I have recollections of hiding behind round stone
I have memories from before I was born

I was born into this just a little more pissed off
than average

I have memories from before I was born
I was born into this just a little more pissed off
than average
I have memories from before I was born

I remember falling to the floor
I remember hearing "you want more?"
I remember talking out the door
I remember memories from before
I was born
Track Name: Heart Lode
just because I am human I want
just because I am human I need
just because I am human I want you back
and I'd walk up right to you

if I could get over the heart break
if I could get over the heart break
if I don't get over the heart break
if I could get over the heart break

its because I am human I think I know what I want
its because I am human I think I know what I need
its because I am human that I walk up right to you
but you still seem to walk more upright than me

if I could get over the heart break
if I could get over the heart break
if I don't get over the heart break
if I don't move on to some upper nother plane
I don't get enough faith based from what you've done
can abstain
upon another plane
Track Name: She Quickly Forgets
I wish that she knew
all that she wants from this world
I wish she'd keep her family close
I wish that I was in her thoughts

it aches my heart
to hope to die
cross my heart
that I won't pry

she gets what she wants
and no sooner forgets
she'll get what she wants
and then she so quickly forgets

I wished on a star
the only one that I see is in her eyes
I wish for her happiness
I wish that I wouldn't have to hope

it aches my heart
to hope to die
cross my heart
that I won't pry

she gets what she wants
so quickly forgets
she gets what she wants
and quickly forgets
Track Name: Common Threads
I hit my bone and spilled some marrow
I jumped in bed despite all common sense
I hit my bone and spilled some marrow
I jumped in bed ignorant of consequence

and I don't know why you feel the need to deceive
and you don't know why you feel the need

I hit my head and spilled some common sense
I hit my heart and bled innocence
I hit my head and lost all sense of senseless senses
Track Name: Ramona's Third Evil Ex
instrumental
Track Name: Every Band Has A Pearl Jam Who Loves Them
and it got this way by being that smug
and I got this far on needless anger
and I got this way by being that smug
and I got this far on needless anger

every band
has a pearl jam
who loves them

god damn
Track Name: Shaking Hands With The Devil
pay the police off

old mans pockets
hems down by the floor
he never reaches bottom
as he puts back in his soul
just shaking hands with the devil
hands with the devil
old mans pockets
reach down to the floor
and he never hits the bottom
as he puts back in his soul

their world is warming and I'm ok
wearing a sweater up till may
their world is running on one ruled fate
we can't overpopulate
their world is coming down on them
do you see any other end

hate filled peace talks

old man's minions
down on the senate floor
you'll always get the better tool
for a dollar more
just shaking hands with the devil
hands with the devil
old mans pockets
reach down to the floor
and he never hits the bottom
as he puts back in his soul

our world is shifting on its plates
our building codes aren't up to date
our foundation is crumbling
our current troubles are currency
driven problems bring reaction solution
it leads always to genocide
Track Name: Overcome Anything
for you I think that I could overcome
for you I would try anything
I think I could overcome
for you I would try anything

and I just need you to know
how much you heal
this no good feeling pain

I think that I could overcome
for you I'll try everything
you'll have us just because
I would try anything
I just need you to know
Track Name: Too Late
if I could've lived anywhere on this earth
then I would pick another section of this state
and now I'm never made to say where I came from
and just like they don't know now

till it's too late
now it's too late
