Lyrics for "The Routine" by Dahlworthy

(C) 2016 Matt Dahl


A broken taillight, pulled over again, 5-O is armed and on scene

A school worker, just trying to get home, reaches for his ID

Another headline, another funeral, both sides are trenching in deep

Light a candle, pray for justice: we all know the routine


So I scream, I scream, look at what our fear unfurled

But I dream, I dream, dreaming of a better world


He served our country, in the navy, survived 3 tours in Iraq

Loved his children, loved to serve and protect, a hero on our block

Civil unrest, a peaceful protest, the kind that’s now the routine

Then a sniper, rained down fire killing, fathers heroes and dreams


So I scream, I scream, look at what our hate unfurled

But I dream, I still dream, dreaming of a better world


ooooh, ooh ooh, ooooh, ooh ooh ooh


Politicians, obey their masters, pricey suits on TV

they separate us, say it’s complicated, let the status quo be

They shake their heads and, polarize us, then offer to pray

Do they serve us? Do they serve our children? Or just the NRA


So I scream, yes I scream, look what hate and fear unfurled

But I dream, I still dream, dreaming of a better world

Platonic by Dahlworthy

Lyrics (c) Matt Dahl


I've just left you again

I wonder do you know

Did you read between my smile

Didn't want to go


You're not the first to find my heart

You're the one I need 

But it kills me when I realize

We will never be


Chorus

When you're in love with a friend

The passion never comes

Still the feelings just don't fade

When you're in love with a friend

You best not have your say

You might scare them away

When you're in love with a friend


I've heard all about your lover

How he caused you many tears

But even when he went away

I cannot come near


I've longed to touch your hand 

Feel the warmth of your embrace

And it kills me when I realize

We will never be


Repeat chorus


Bridge

I told myself that I wouldn't fall for you

Now that I have fallen what am I to do

What am I to do


Chorus

Masks by Dahlworthy

(c) Matt Dahl

When you put it on 

(they want you, they love)

Then it won't be long 

(they want you, they love)

It doesn't feel wrong 

(they want you, they love)

Gonna keep it on

(they want you, they love)


The thing they do not know

(they want you, they love)

They're a part of your show

(they want you, they love)

Inhibitions have to go

(they want you, they love)

When the mask takes control

(they want you, they love)

Lyrics for "You've Got to Chew it, Chew it" by Dahlworthy

(C) Matt Dahl


You start with the squash open up real wide

Let the hand with the spoon bring the mush inside

Then you swish it all around, make a grimacey face

Now stick out your tongue make it all go to waste


Get a little on your nose and a lot on your chin

Keep spitting it out again and again (and again and again)

Take your fist in your mouth then rub it on your eyes

Make your dad feel like he just wants to die


You’ve got to chew it chew it, you’ve got to chew it chew it, come on and chew it chew it

You’ve got to chew it chew it, you’ve got to chew it chew it, come on and chew it chew it

You’ve got to chew it chew it, come on and chew it chew it


Sweet potato on your spoon then browny rice

First you chew then swallow (wouldn’t that be nice)

Avocado on your tongue then on your chair

How’d you get those peas in your hair?


Tried asparagus, bananas too

Had the biggest smile then you puked on your shoe

They laugh at me at the grocery store

‘cuz every day I’m back for more!


Sweet potato

Avocado 

peas and apples 

squash bananas 

pear zucchini 

browny rice 

Then millet and oats 

and peaches and plums

applesauce and beets

asparagus

barley oats

millets and ‘cots

carrots and lettuce

and tapioca
