Lucrezia M Nardi Knowing how good 'Sorry to Say' is, I bought this album without listening to it, I was pretty sure I'd love it,and I do! It confirms he's a very good artist and musician, I found the instrumental backgrounds absolutely intreresting, refined and catchy, as well as in the other record. Good Job, can't wait for new stuff! Favorite track: Autoreverse.

Let Me Know 05:46
listen for once i'm not as offensive as you think i don't like your decision and it's gonna take a moment to pair up two and two but i know that you're going your restlessness showing there's nothing that i can do so let me know if i change your mind reposition i feel like something's missing from my sleep or actually the lack there of i keep a space on my bookcase for your picture hopefully one day i'll put it back we'll i guess it's the price i pay for getting close to junior miss in business clothes i got so caught up in what we were saying i never brought up that i didn't know we were playing grown up you made me so convinced from toe up i wish i still was
Distress! 03:46
it's not likely that nothing's the matter will be your answer when i finally get a hold of you the point of safety has passed now i smell disaster i'm afraid of what you're gonna do hopefully i'm wrong you're asleep and thinking of me cause i'm in distress please let my pessimism rest it's amazing for someone who talks as much as you do you've got me pacing for a single word i was crazy to think that i might have broken you down ignored the warnings that i should've heard where did i go wrong probably wasn't all that right it's not likely that nothing's the matter something's the matter get this over with be a man and let my pessimism rest
Shoulda 03:52
i think pretty days are nature's way of showing your faults and poor choices that you have made condescending clouds will open up to frame the sun but hoard their rain not that i am bitter i just thought there was a chance that i was living in a world with fortune smiling on me i shoulda known it's better not to think of these things the sun just points and laughs i told you so
Natty Ice 00:54
yeah, my ice is natical and nautical. nautical by nature, not cause of nurture, dude. i'll come to your kitchen and hurt your food. don't be lazily naked, exert your nude.
Autoreverse 06:37
had to travel too far from my home to feel this way woulda packed for a year if i'd known i'd wanna stay had to set my watch to your time zone anything just to feel less alone cause i had to travel too far from my home to feel this way five week strange bed summer semi-sprained one day thief and cigarettes seasonal devein separation symmetry delayed trade in alone for patience and never be repaid no matter how hard i try no i can't get you out of my mind there's no convenience in having to replay that day all the time they need to remake my head without autoreverse or rewind cause no matter how hard i try no i can't get you out
some days the definites get too close cause i've already placed a precedent to kill impulse maybe preemptively but better than sorry don't wanna get what i've paid for try to transfer a disease into an outlet where i can police my output my hands are never steady my heredity has made me someone that i don't wanna be repave the path i fought against with brand new foes maybe the need for definites is just as gross although not openly it's still dependency that looks much better on paper oh no what shall i do i've got a taste for medicine and the will to live
Company 03:18
yo, yo, yo. i'm flipping up this script so hard. yeah, that's what i am doing. and you will be rueing my rhyme technique, crime mystique and fine physique this week.
Meanwhile... 04:44
transition into the skin and bone set into motion by familiar tone and there's no doubt whatever you wanna talk about coulda waited til morning well there's no use in mourning what's been buried away in my unknown you woke me up out of a dream it was my favorite part there's a feeling i need resolved and it can't come in stages i don't want you to be involved cause it might be contagious you woke me up out of a dream it was my favorite part i had a face i'd never seen older and twice as smart now i'm a stitch short of a seam artery from no heart i'll never break back into sleep we've grown too far apart
i'd offer to take you home but it goes against everything i work for and gas is so expensive these days so sit another minute make yourself at home take a break from making faces at your cell phone make a couple at me if you wouldn't mind if it's a force of habit move it to the other side my nose knows what you're hiding i'll eye before the night ends so lay with me the freeway drones like the sea under the venetian blinds your hands and eyes are each in mine and i want i wanna make you feel at home but it's a force of habit move it to the other side and lay with me the freeway drones oh you barely know me i don't know who was there before me but laid out here before i don't care who was there before me hope you're ready for me
Sleep It Off 08:07
before long you can point back at the sun and after all you've been through go home and sleep it off it's arrogant to say that you've seen it coming when you're not in the way cause no one wants to know that something was avoidable from someone it avoided so not a word as you're wiping the shit off your face it had to hurt but be proud of yourself you handle much better than most most days oh but then there are days before long you can point back at the sun and after all you've been through go home and sleep it off if you count all the mountains that you won ignore the ones you lose they'd almost even out as for now i might sit the next one out if it's all the same to you
