fun 'n games

we live a life we make decisions

one is waking up each day

we gotta breathe go through the motions

never underestimate

we wanna do the things that make us

who we think we wanna be

trying things we try to make up

it's not all it's cracked up to be

​this life it's not fun 'n games

it's not... fun

some of us do more than we should

while others watch and reap the goods

and some are bound for glory and fame

where others lack and place the blame


  • accomplishment3:09


we do what we do and say what we say

we are who we are cause we're all made that way

we're simply unique and no one can say

so don't try to rain on my parade

'cause i'm different you're different

it's just what we've been dealt

don't wanna be anybody else

we're all different and that's ok

​it just makes you stand out

in this world today

no apology is required ya see

you're just being yourself

and not somebody else

we can't fake who we are

opinions go so far

and we all bleed the same

i know it sounds pretty lame

but i'm making a point

i need to get across

we were put on this earth

and that's just the start

our identity is reality

it's you and it's me

in its entirety

i'm different you're different

it's just what we've been dealt

don't wanna be anybody else...

accidentally on purpose

easier said

​so when you're feeling down

and you can't get up

it's when you need a sign

that you know you're tough

and this thing we all call life

is beautiful

and at times we sacrifice

as it takes its toll

we all fall down we all get up

sometimes it's easier said

so when you're all alone

and got time to think

look at the things that make

oh you smile and wink

it'll pick you up again

oh i know it will

it's 'cause you got the heart

and you got the will

we all all fall down we all get up

sometimes it's easier said

and when you need a friend

i'm right here

two arms to hold you tight

two inviting ears

just know you're not alone

and you will never be

i'll be right by your side

til eternity

​​​​​​the possibilities

we're always disbelieving

so why is it that we cannot see

the good in anything

so many circumstances

somehow it's not enough to please

this society

what do we do when we're faced w/negativity

consuming our emotions

pessimism free

the possibilities...

are waiting to be seen

can give us what we need

the possibilities

a chance to see

there's more to life than you and me 

each day's a new beginning

to stop crying and start singing

there's a place for everything

these chains that bind must be free

let them go and throw them out to sea

ralph tomaselli

it'll do you good

everyone's got questions

and possibly the answers

and every answer to the question has to come from somewhere

too many take for granted

for granted too many take

so why on earth must we ignore the gifts

that came from somewhere

why don't ya think for yourself

for a change it'll do you good

and if you take this advice

you will find that it'll do you good

it'll do you good...


so could one learn to swallow

if it was shoved down their throat

and if it comes back up

would it be something they could deal with

it'll do you good if you listen to me

you need a mind of your own

and a vision to see

that you were put on this earth

w/a heart and soul

just like everybody else

an individual

cause you were made of you not anyone else

so use the tools you got

and grab them off that shelf

oh it'll do you good...

somebody called me a sissy

i've been to high school

somebody called me a band geek

i've had hair down to my ass

somebody made fun of me

i stood up for my self

and now i'm singing this song about a boy named me

now it's time to turn the other cheek

it's no lie we've all been ridiculed

i've got pride to say i'm a band geek

and i don't mind, i really don't mind

i wanna be a band geek

so what if i'm a band geek

proud to be a band geek

i was born to be a band geek

you know you wanna be a band geek

the way she makes me feel

can't take my eyes off her

so hard to concentrate

the way she makes me feel

is this even for real

so many things to say

she takes my breath away

my heart won't be the same 

it adds a beat each day

i just can't get enough

her smile her laugh her touch

she brightens up my day

in so many ways

i just know there's something there

can't help this smile i wear

and this taste of happiness

don't ever let it end

'cause she makes me feel like i'm alive

for awhile i felt like my soul has died

it's the way she makes me feel

​​if i could fly away

if i could fly away

i'd let the wind take me

to where i wanna be

so far away...

i could see whatever i wanna see

'n i could go wherever i wanna go

​so far away...

if i could fly away

the thought of being free

from dream to reality

oh if i could fly away

to places i'd never see

in all eternity

so far away...

i can be whatever i wanna be

'n i can do whatever i wanna do

​so far away...

if i could fly away

i'd let the wind take me

to where i wanna be

to where i wanna be, yeah

so far away...

and time is no necessity

​for peace and love and harmony

in the worst kinda way

can you hear what i'm sayin'

do ya get what i do

i'm throwin' down i ain't playin'

the rest is all up to you yeah

i've got this rhythm of thinkin'

a method all of my own

and not be out on your own, no

now do ya hear what i'm sayin'

do ya get what i do

i'm just creating a scene here

and i am welcoming you, yeah

i did it all on my own

no need for greed or acceptance

you shake things up you be known, yeah

​dig it?


step out of yourself

you just might find someone else

you just might find

someone hiding inside

something searching for

maybe reaching for that star

you know it's in you so

what are you waiting for

a little goes a long way

you owe it to yourself to be ok

and no matter what people say

you owe it to yourself to be ok

wanting so much more

than this life has to offer

so many good things

this world's in the palm of your hands

so go on and be that you

you've always known

in your heart it's true

no need to fight with

​what's inevitable

there's only so much you can do

It's not my fault it's outta my control...

there's only so much you can do...

​sometimes we think we could do it all

like we're superman or somethin'

​well I like to think I'm batman sometimes...


I still can't do it all

I don't think any of us can

what do ya think?

​I think I'm right...

smell the roses

too many things to do
can't even think things through
so much is on our minds
consuming all our time
appreciate the day
is not something we can say
we're always on the go
and got nothing to show

no time to smell the roses
no time to lend an ear
no time to take the time

live your life and enjoy

is what i fear

stop and smell the roses...

there's always some excuse

the stress hangs like a noose

if we practice what we preach

it may not be out of reach

no time to smell the roses

no time to lend an ear

we lose ourselves in ourselves

in this i do believe

and it's what i fear

if we could find the time

each day we live would shine

the smile upon ones face

would rid all that's in haste

make time to smell the roses

make time to lend an ear

make time to live your life and enjoy

'cause you are here


we sat around and played a game

just like old times remembered the same

all of us age and all of us change

but there are some things in life

we just can't rearrange

what if we had all of the money

like monopoly

we'd live like the rich

buy all of the land and properties

this life's not a game it ain't nothing like

this philosophy (atrocity)

'cause some of us win but most of us lose

like monopoly

you cannot pass go or collect any dough

get outta jail card it don't fly anymore

it's nice to dream eventually you'll wake up

so go on w/your life take the good times

w/the tough

who makes all the rules

and carries out the plans

whatever happened to 

the independent man

we live from day to day

and do the best we can 

our fingers to the bone

who gets it in the end

      conditioned by the media

​talkin' to myself try to get to know me

think about things no one would ever show me, yeah

​I'm all outta words describing how I feel

not knowing anymore what's fake and what's real, yeah

​I'll bet that's what it's like to be on top

conditioned by the media (2 x's)

life is but a game

we finish what we started

(television magazines)

some are bound to win amidst the broken hearted

(emptiness and broken dreams)

each and every day change is all around us

(listen to the radio)

accepting is the key unlocking doors around us

(telling us what we should know)

conditioned, conditioned, conditioned, conditioned...

by the media, by the media

television magazines filling us with us with broken dreams

listen to the radio telling us what we should know

affecting all humanity filtering through our blood stream

we can't ignore what is oscene

​we are the product of the means
