Track Name: Oasis
Pull Up Pull Up
came to the West Side, and
rolled up my luck
came for a test drive
well I’m on the road to redemption
potholes full of lessons
now I’m hoping that these demons
gon’ be holdin’ their questions
I’m escaping from the Shawshank that I had in my brain
coming out the other side lifting my head in the rain
Talkin’ freedom that I never knew
decide to be a better ME and not a better YOU
headed to my

OASIS
we don’t know the way
but we’re out here looking for it every day it’s my
OASIS
let’s go for a ride
go for a journey where we don’t know the time
OASIS
I’ll show you a place
we put on these records and we just let them play it’s my
OASIS
no worries tonight
we just roll up and take our time

So I’m livin’ it up
negativity giving it up
and I could just be fillin’ my cup
but lately I feel like I’m feeling enough
Not on that psilocybin but I’m trippin’
I could let this hit like a drum
give up city slickin’ get that I’m picking
a different vision and it fit like a glove
And on to that mission
to get lifted by the rhythm
Take a note, the more we listen
gettin’ closer to the vision
of a world where God is Love
doesn’t matter your religion
so just turn the speakers up
treat each other like we live in this

OASIS
we don’t know the way
but we’re out here looking for it every day its my
OASIS
let’s go for a ride
go for a journey where we don’t know the time
OASIS
I’ll show you a place
we put on these records and we just let them play it’s my
OASIS
no worries tonight
we just roll up and take our time

So pull up pull up
to the life you wanna live
fill up your cup
or if you wanna roll a spliff
roll up roll up
I don’t give a ___
don’t forget
that you’re dead when you reject your faith
in what your own reflection makes
so learn to be a shepherd or
get led like if your pencil breaks
no loathing in the scent of hate
like roses full of pepper spray
like oceans full of leprosy
you’re floating don’t let go of this

OASIS
we don’t know the way
but we’re out here looking for it every day its my
OASIS
let’s go for a ride
go for a journey where we don’t know the time
OASIS
I’ll show you a place
we put on these records and we just let them play it’s my
OASIS
no worries tonight
we just roll up and take our time
Track Name: Down (feat. Duncan)
Those city lights and those pretty eyes
and I bet you know you’re beautiful
I can’t deny that I’m feeling high
and I know it’s all because of you.

So will you be down, down, down,
just want you around, round, round,
so lucky I found you at all
So are you still down, down, down,
I want you right now, now, now,
So glad that I found you, but I just gotta know,
are you still down

Yeah I knew that there’d be days like this,
yeah I knew that there’d be days like this.
Where a pair of eyes would show me the future
and get me thinking bout the things I’ve missed.
So excuse me miss, I want to show you everything on my mind,
walking for hours, never think of the time
raining or sunny weather, we weather the storm just fine
and whether you lay on a bed of feathers or thorns, I
wanna be next to you.
I asked her where she wanted to go, she said
“somewhere colourful, at the end of the road,
where we don’t have to get up early and don’t have to be home,
and we don’t have to really worry about tapping a phone”
Said I agree, so hop in, let’s head to the sea,
Music up, windows down, now we’re catching a breeze.
Dancing and singing and laughing, learning how to be free.
Thinkin’ I never really want you to leave.
So will you be

[Chorus]

Down, girl look around,
sun rising, we’re on the balcony lookin’ out.
The world is ours, we just gotta show these people how,
chillin like there ain’t shit on the syllabus for a while,
then we, paddle out, it’s a slow life.
We’ll be back sippin’ mimosas before the ocean’s at full tide,
Hop in that Studey and ride, that ’49,
My foot on the gas pedal, you leanin’ over to drive.
And we can dance on our own, playin another slow hit,
swingin’ and moving slow, yellin’ Thank God for showbiz,
really we Colorado, pure freedom out in the open,
Chasin’ these freakin’ dollars and dream of seeing the ocean.
I know this, I tore my hope up before and you sewed this,
We bumpin’ Frank Sinatra, doors open, well I hope this
Is different, on the balcony watching you speak,
Thinkin’ I never really want you to leave.
So will you be

[Chorus]

Are you down, sayin’ girl are you down,
To hit up lazy rivers listening to “Come Around”
Are you down, sayin’ girl are you down,
To break the hourglass, make a beach upon the ground,
Are you down, sayin’ girl are you down,
To get roped into something we’ll remember for awhile.
Are you down, sayin’ girl are you down…
Track Name: Mr. Authentic
Mr. Cool, Mr. Authentic,
Mr. Coop, show me the way,
I wanna float, float away from my senses,
see the world from your perspective one day,

We’re on the road to redemption always,
we’re on the road to redemption always,
and getting close to just finding our way,
but now it’s feeling sort of distant.

Mr. Cool, Mr. Authentic,
Mr. Coop, show me the way,
I wanna float, float away to the endless,
this abyss of all these endless days.

We’re on a road to redemption,
a road to redemption and it’s leading us too far away
from our home within ourselves, put our soul up on the shelf
and just leave them for another day.

Remember days when we were young, dumb, and invincible,
don’t know our souls intentions but we’re rollin’ with it,
running away from all that,
knowin’ today won’t call back,
pick up and answer, there’s limited chances
to fall on your face or fall back.
But you, loved with a heart, bigger than your own intentions,
and it’s not ‘bout counting friends
but showing friends the right attention.
Grace the world with every smile you can,
you did and will for ages.
Long after the record stops,
hear your echoes, let them play.

Mr. Cool, Mr. Authentic,
Mr. Coop, show me the way,
I wanna float, float away from my senses,
see the world from your perspective one day,

Mr. Cool, Mr. Authentic,
Mr. Coop, show me the way,
I wanna float, float away from my senses,
see the world from your perspective…
Track Name: Roll Your Dice
Say Roll Your Dice,
Come and roll them on me tonight,
and I’m going all in,
come on let’s go all in.

I’m on a runway,
looking for a place to land and rest my weary arms, babe,
I’ve been swimming in skies of Ritalin and Andre,
celebrating this calm, came from the wrong place,
stuck under Babylon gates.

But ill tunnel out, where the sun is out, ill be hoppin’ out of my context.
In the tunnel now, and I’m running out, for this soccer match with my conscience.
But when the weather is hot, and my rhetoric’s not, and I cant really decide if I want this,
take a dip in the water of Lake Conchas, sippin’ hella cinnamon, listen to this concept,

Sayin roll, for my people up in prison who don’t know
if they’ll ever see their children learn and grow,
no that’s not the life I live,
but won’t throw the first stone knowin’ that my freedom is a gift.
And I’ll be damned if I don’t use it.
The mind is a weapon of mass destruction, don’t abuse it.
But used as weapon of mass construction for that new shit,
perfect every nuisance, and don’t just do it if the shoe fits,
if not, get it loosened.

Sayin’ Roll Your Dice,
Come and roll them on me tonight,
and I’m going all in,
come on let’s go all in.

Yeah, I’d probably climb a couple stairs for it,
take dares for it, yeah I’d jump in front a bear for it,
go bare for it, front of 50 thousand fans for it,
but never, ever, compromise on what I’m sayin’ for it.

You might be holding a different toilet, but shits the same.
Don’t spend your life planning vacations just to miss the plane.
I roll the dice like I know the dealer, and fixed the game,
roll lucky 7’s, take a trip to fame.
