Full of Song 05:13
I am full of song Melody flows forth from me Lyricism is my middle name What could possibly go wrong My voice is strong I'm not ashamed I am full of song I am going to resonate at you I've much to sing I am filled to the brim To sing fully my whim You can't do anything Why should I be held to standards? Why should I be placed in the context of precedent? Why should I be held to standards? Why should I be faced with the light of history? Why should I be held to standards? Why should I be placed in the context of tradition? Here's what I want you to do. I want you to forget everything you've ever heard before And hear me sing something you've heard before And say "Wow, that's something I've never heard before" I've got what it takes to go far The choice voice to deliver the repertoire To the abbatoir So let's send to the abbatoir
You want someone who is dancing and crying Crying and dancing, the essence of romancing But I just can't seem to do it When I'm dancing, I'm not crying When I'm crying, I'm not dancing And it's not for a lack of trying
I'm Not Me 03:32
I'm not me Can't seem to find the energy To differentiate a personality And thus, I'm not me A composite husk Some directionless dust Cast in your image Cliche components Embedded in my visage A human follower Not constructing apart I don't pull from a vacuum And create wholly unrecognizable art Maybe it's because... I'm not me
You never should have opened that door Now it won't stay closed anymore You never should have said those words But the silence, the itch, and then they are heard The thought once embedded, cannot be extracted A pungent pointless price has been exacted Careless contamination of a mind's wellspring Like it's no big thing You could and so you did You can and so you will Talk is very expensive
I like to be bored, I like to do boring things I like to see boring shows, I like to do nothing I like to sing boring songs, so you can be bored too I like to do boring things, what do you like to do? I like to be bored because I like the dull ache I think you'd be surprised at how much I can take So baby, bring it if you got it -- Can you bore with the best? I throw down, I don't clown, cowboy, just try and test! I killed argus with my starkness, I'm mundane and dry I crush your fun under ten tons of drab and make you cry I mainline malaise into your cerebellum I fill the pits in your discs and suck the ink out your vellum I swipe the spring out of your step, and flatten your affect I sully all your joys and leave you jaded and bereft You could try to bore me, but you'd only fascinate me I can excite myself with blandness that recurs daily
The sun is warm, the wind is colder I'm not getting smarter just getting older The road to hell is paved with humiliation Careless lack of consideration I was broken in by The masters of love, Who never let me down The masters of love, Who I let down The masters of love, Have never let me down The masters of love, I let them down
You have blanks You love blank You hate blank You want blank You need blank You blank blank Let me fill them in for you The response seeks a stimulus Spontaneous self-justifying symptom
I made up my mind It took a long time I made up my mind And it will be fine My brain was split in twain From riding the fence for so long My heart was in two parts Always living with one eye on the door How long can I live with half an ass Get my half-ass up off the floor And make up my mind It takes a long time I make up my mind So it will be fine


"Mid-2000s Philadelphia was a fun place to hear weirdo rock music, and it brought about some seriously amazing records. An important figure on that scene is local legend George Korein.
We played a bunch of music together from around 2005-2009 (or something like that), when George was releasing such classics (as far as I'm concerned) as Too Many Days, The Naked Mall Rats, and Art Jerks, as well as soooo many others.
Now, George has released Full of Song, which I think follows the same thread as Naked Mall Rats and Art Jerks and features a 2008 version of myself on guitar!
As far as I'm concerned, this is seriously some of GK's best stuff."
