Vlayman: “All the Drugs”

All the Drugs
c. ’16 Vlayman

Get the cork out,
pour you another
It’s yer favorite way of ducking for cover
Peel the bag open,
make a line
It’s yer favorite way of stacking time

CH
With all the drugs
and all the booze
You hadda know you were gonna lose

Twist the cap off
crackin’ the seal
It’s yer favorite way of numbing how you feel

Draw the stuff up
through the cotton
It’s yer favorite way towards ending forgotten

Vlayman: “Casket For My Friend”

Casket For My Friend
dedicated to Orlando, FL
c. ’16 Vlayman

I got one of those jobs no one wants to know
One of those jobs take care of ya when ya go
Yeah, I’m one of those guys, there for ya at the very end
And I made a casket for my friend

And I ain’ no slob doncha call me no ghoul
And it don’t matter how far I mighta went in school
A job’s a job, and we all need one in the end
And I made a casket for my friend

And I knowed the job was coming, scared me a bit
Thinking ’bout it comin’, freaked me out and shit
You mighta heard about my job on the CNN
And I made a casket for my friend

Bridge:
Some sumbitch took a gun into a club
And in the end he got what he shoulda got
But I hate that they didn’t get him way before that end
And I made a casket for my friend

SOLO

I got one of those jobs that I think I’m gonna let it go
One of those jobs s’posed to take care of ya when ya go
Don’ wanna hhafta be one of those guys, there for ya at the very end
And I made a casket for my friend

Dandelion
c. ’16 Lyrics: J. Mattera; Music: Vlayman

Dandelion, she comes to me
Dandelion, she sets me free
Dandelion, won’t let me be
Oh, Dandelion, she loves me more than me

Dandelion, she gets on top
Dandelion, she won’t stop
Dandelion, proud and true
Dandelion, she’s not for you

Springtime baby, she grows free
Springtime baby,just wait and see
Oh, Dandelion, she loves me more than me
Oh, Dandelion, she loves me more than me

Dandelion,
Oh, Dandelion,
Dandelion, , she loves me more than me

My Musical Week

So, Tuesday I jammed on guitar with a band that a old highschool friend (Dave) plays pretty good bass in. ¬†They had a good drummer (forgot his name), and the decent singer/guitarist (Roger) is a good writer, also. They didn’t immediately invite me to join, don’t know if they will, not sure I want to for various reasons, but I had fun.

Wednesday I had a second jam (mostly bass and some guitar) with a drummer (Joe) I met offa Craigslist. Nice guy, good drummer, had a triple bypass a year ago and so his stamina is about 20 minutes, but he’s good for jamming and recording with, and, like I said, a nice guy.

Thursday I got to gether with the Bustouts’ excellent former drummer (Mark the cop) and a good new bassist (Bob); I sing and play guitar. We are calling ourselves a band, mebbe, “The Strangers” (thanx, jr!), but are really more of a recording project at this point.

Yesterday I mixed down and did some recording on a cuppla tracks I recorded last Sunday with Joe, as I did on Monday, and reworked my pedal board and soldered some cables.

This morning I did some lead guitar work onna rap track a friend of mine is Svengali’ing – he texted me he “loves” it.

This afternoon Joe came over and we did some percussion and vocals on our two tracks, what I will post soon.

Just sezzin’ …

Vlayman: “Younger Women (Hey, Hey!)”

Younger Women (Hey, Hey!)
c. ’16 Vlayman

Standing in the shadows of lust
I been shakin’ t’il I rattle and cuss
Standin’ in the shadows of love
I’m gonna do what I must

Hey, hey

Lookin’ at ya through half closed eyes, yeah
You make me think about how I wanna die

CH: Hey, hey, what is it about younger women
Puts me in mind of what I ain’t been givi n’ (#2 gettin’)
Ain’t just a line that I’m singin’,
about my loneliness?

Smellin’ yer tears, tastin’ yer hair
What doya fear? Why can’t ya stay?
Why can’t ya stay?
