Stuck With Green – Dull Unconscious Man

About this album

Stuck With Green & Evan Zappa's second collaborative Album has catapulted SWG's ReverbNation Rating to #1. D.U.M. (Dull Unconscious Man) questions the very essence of changes to the human condition in the digital age. No longer ruled by mere human emotions, the essence of mankind is rapidly approaching the crossing point between nurture and nature to pivot its decision making on intellect. N. Jones' brilliant album engineering, mastering & remix of the title song pokes a thoughtful and humorous stick within the very eye of politics with the disrespect that both Trump evangelists and ultra-left wing liberals will applaud. The album song list synthesizes the electronic industrial madness that uniquely characterizes the Stuck With Green/Evan Zappa brand! This is music for the Cognitive Elite!

Lyrics

Never Too Late

It's never too late to go numb again
It's never too late to be dumb again
Never too late to eat crumbs again
It's never too late
Never too late
NEVER

It's never too late to fill with regret
Hold mistakes so tight like you can't forget
Because the time is near
it's gonna reset
So you better get
Yes you better get
You better get movin

It's never too late to be a dead beat f**k
Than be a rock n roll star
So be a rock n roll star
Just be a rock n roll star
Rock n roll star baby

Yes it's never too late to work for minimum wage
Work like a rock n roll star
Work like a rock n roll star
Just Like a rock n roll star
Rock n roll star baby

It's never too late to settle for the less
It's never too late to cave in to stress
It's never too late to fear your success
It's never too late
It's never too late
NEVER

It's never too late to fill with jealous rage
At the fearless (lucky) ones from your envy cage
Because the time is near
A different age
So you better engage
Engage in Life

 

Isolation Fornication

I dare not go outside no more, 'cept inside the net
The coast ain't clear beyond the doors where humans must be vet
Room darkened shades and lights down low embraced in my cocoon
I dare not venture out the doors lest danger come too soon

(chorus)
Isolation fornication fucked inside my mind
Masturbation replication raped in my behind
Retribution evolution sitting on a shelf
Isolation fornication really fucked, I really fucked myself
Isolation fornication
Isolation fornication

The broadened smiles like foxes' sneers, the whispered slanted gaze
The homily of dead to me, the friends all gone in a haze
The looks too true from those who sue to hack off all my limbs
I'd best be left here on my own singing funeral hymns

(chorus)
Isolation fornication fucked inside my mind
Masturbation replication raped in my behind
Retribution evolution sitting on a shelf
Isolation fornication really fucked, I really fucked myself

(instrumental break)

Isolation fornication
Isolation fornication
Isolation fornication
Isolation fornication

I really fucked myself
I really fucked myself
I....

(chorus)
Isolation fornication fucked inside my mind
Masturbation replication raped in my behind
Retribution evolution sitting on a shelf
Isolation fornication really fucked, I really fucked myself
Isolation fornication
Isolation fornication

 

Cemetery Promises

Chiseled soulless faces
Restless on the run
Surely all this fame
Someday must come undone
Pissing on the gravesites
Harmless midnight fun
Whisky breath abounding
Older then than young
(chorus)
Cemetery promises
Life defying dreams
Don’t you dare stop teasing me
With all your pesky schemes
Humpty Dumpty poses
Fractured keyless tones
Cemetery promises
Sliding through the bones
Cemetery promises
Life defying dreams
Feckless Mortuary
Six feet under ground
Undertaker traveler
See what I have found
Real life living replica
Walking without dread
Here I find fulfillment
Speaking with the dead
(chorus)
Cemetery promises
Life defying dreams
Don’t you dare stop teasing me
With all your pesky schemes
Humpty Dumpty poses
Fractured keyless tones
Cemetery promises
Sliding through the bones
Cemetery promises
Life defying dreams
(instrumental break)
(chorus)
Cemetery promises
Life defying dreams
Don’t you dare stop teasing me
With all your pesky schemes
Humpty Dumpty poses
Fractured keyless tones
Cemetery promises
Sliding through the bones
Cemetery promises
Life defying dreams

Long and Slow

He did not feel the bullet, didn't see the blood escape
Felt no fluid in his lungs, felt no breathless hesitate
Never saw what really hit him, didn't fall down to his knees
But still the end was nearing like the evening ocean breeze

(chorus)
It’s a long slow death that’s coming
He can feel it in his bones
Cause the woman he was loving
Took with her what he called home
It’s a cancer to his spirit
In the end he’s all alone
It’s a long slow death that’s coming
He can feel it in his bones

He was living in the good life with warmth inside his chest
Had a purpose and a vision had some magic to his quest
Must have been the love he’s feeling from the one that knew his soul
He was full of joy and wonder from this girl he’d come to know

(chorus)
It’s a long slow death that’s coming
He can feel it in his bones
Cause the woman he was loving
Took with her what he called home
It’s a cancer to his spirit
In the end he’s so alone
It’s a long slow death that’s coming
He can feel it in his bones

It’s a cancer to his spirit
It’s a cancer, it’s a cancer
It’s a cancer to his spirit
It’s a cancer, it’s a cancer
It’s a long slow death that’s coming
He can feel it in his bones
It’s a long slow death that’s coming
He can feel it in his bones
It’s a long slow death that’s coming
He can feel it in his bones
It’s a long slow death that’s coming
He can feel it in his bones

(bridge)
Now he simply wanders with a nasty open wound
He’s a man whose only purpose is to sleep within his tomb

Footsteps In The Hallway

I keep sleeping in the daytime
Though I'm wide awake at night
These dreams are far too heavy
Cause my soul’s become too light
Had I known my life was ending
I'd of prayed a whole lot more
It's a purgatory feeling
And it lasts forever more
I can feel right thru the darkness
And it seems as bright as day
It's a nightmare of forgiveness
Though I know I never paid
I keep longing for the silence
Of these voices in my head
But this burning demon presence
Chants the yearnings of the dead
(chorus)
There are footsteps in the hallway
There's a creaking on the stair
Perhaps the front door lockset
Was never really there
There's a silver blade a-shining
With a slice of pure delight
I won’t bother to continue
Breathing in this air tonight
Could you please take this forgiveness?
Cause I really want you to
I never really earned it
So I’ll give it back to you
It's a gift that makes me lonely
In the solitude of truth
It's a dirty guilty secret
I acquired in my youth
My father was a sailor
Though I hardly knew the man
He had passed this way to heaven
Shortly after I could stand
Though all the days keep passing
Just because they know they can
I will never reach the promise
Sinking in all this quicksand
(chorus)
There are footsteps in the hallway
There's a creaking on the stair
Perhaps the front door lockset
Was never really there
There's a silver blade a-shining
With a slice of pure delight
I won’t bother to continue
Breathing in this air tonight
(bridge)
I keep standing in the sunshine
In the middle of the night
And I know my eyes are open
But my heart is frozen tight
Will I be this way forever?
Without chivalry or shame
I keep screaming on the inside
At the monster I became
(chorus)
There are footsteps in the hallway
There's a creaking on the stair
Perhaps the front door lockset
Was never really there
There's a silver blade a-shining
With a slice of pure delight
I won’t bother to continue
Breathing in this air tonight

Planting

I'm planting tires, growing cars, singing songs and counting stars
Running fast, breathing hard, drawing pics and kissing scars
She asked, pray tell, what's that you're growing
Just wait and see the plum tree glowing

(chorus)
Dreams are made of marmalade, chocolate fudge and Escalades
Fortunes come in nines and tens, long before the time was when
The very first, light I saw, brought memories of my dear paw
These many years, he's dead and gone, shortly after I was born

There’s bottles hanging from the roof, crystal gems and 90 proof
Paid my dues, stepped on the cracks, tripped a fool and broke my back
May never get to heaven's gate, but sure as heck pursued my fate
The time has come to dance a storm, pick a friend and do no harm

(chorus)
Dreams are made of marmalade, chocolate fudge and Escalades
Fortunes come in nines and tens, long before the time was when
The very first, light I saw, brought memories of my dear paw
These many years, he's dead and gone, shortly after I was born

(bridge)
Sweet and sour came to play, but Mr. fun just ran away
Stop my child don't run and hide, teacher's pet is on your side

(chorus)
Dreams are made of marmalade, chocolate fudge and Escalades
Fortunes come in nines and tens, long before the time was when
The very first, light I saw, brought memories of my dear paw
These many years, he's dead and gone, shortly after I was born

Awareness Redefined

She’s shooting truth into my veins, recording every word
Downloading every fantasy with pictures too absurd
She’s triggering an avalanche, tearing down the walls
Telekinesis ecstasy, reverse Niagara Falls

7 deadly years
Changing life forever
Facing all the fears
Turning now to never
Shutting out the noise
Solitarily confined
7 deadly years
Awareness redefined

Its here that water flows up hill denying gravity
Mind games turning the tricks to thoughts beyond reality
She’s whispering insane delight to core inside my soul
How is it Mother Nature’s lost forever in this hole?

7 deadly years
Changing life forever
Facing all the fears
Turning now to never
Shutting out the noise
Solitarily confined
7 deadly years
Awareness redefined

(bridge)
There’s a wonder and a calmness there’s a pure tranquility
Basking with the temptress beyond humanity

7 deadly years
Changing life forever
Facing all the fears
Turning now to never
Shutting out the noise
Solitarily confined
7 deadly years
Awareness redefined

Hiding Truth

It’s a question of discretion
Moderation to the max
Without extreme behavior
My friend, dem’s are the facts
Cause a world devoid of fun
Isn’t any way to live
And a church mouse and a preacher
Have a nip before they give

(chorus)
They can’t tell I’ve been drinking
They don’t even have a clue
I’m a master of deception
Stuffing grins in IOU’s
All the bottles behind trap doors
Camouflaged inside the night
I’m a functioning magician
Hiding truth in broad daylight

You want me to be sober
As a church mouse or a judge
But you’re guzzling all the liquor
Just like everybody does
If you told your guardian angel
She would slap upside your face
Make hypocrisy a crime
Make you feel your own disgrace

(chorus)
They can’t tell I’ve been drinking
They don’t even have a clue
I’m a master of deception
Stuffing grins in IOU’s
All the bottles behind trap doors
Camouflaged inside the night
I’m a functioning magician
Hiding truth in broad daylight

(instrumental break)

(chorus)
They can’t tell I’ve been drinking
They don’t even have a clue
I’m a master of deception
Stuffing grins in IOU’s
All the bottles behind trap doors
Camouflaged inside the night
I’m a functioning magician
Hiding truth in broad daylight

Dull Unconscious Man

I been searching for your love
But these old senses have been dulled
Trying to find some shred of joy
But remorse is where I’m lulled
Move my feet but cannot walk
Trying to find but only seek
Look to God but cannot pray
Mouth the words but cannot speak

(chorus)
Listen closely to my tale
I’m a dull unconscious man
Walk in trouble just for you
Hauling buckets full of sand
Ferocious floods are on the way
Try to smile but only frown
Wade the river for you love
‘Fore nightfall I may drown

Raise my voice by there’s no song
Bow my head but cannot cry
Press my lips, no face to kiss
Try to show but only hide
Look for you but cannot see
Try to give but only take
I inhale but cannot breathe
I was real but now I’m fake

(chorus)
Listen closely to my tale
I’m a dull unconscious man
Walk in trouble just for you
Hauling buckets full of sand
Ferocious floods are on the way
Try to smile but only frown
Wade the river for you love
‘Fore nightfall I may drown

(bridge)
Close my eyes but only see
The all of you with none of me
Try to move but only wait
Being stuck must be my fate

(chorus)
Listen closely to my tale
I’m a dull unconscious man
Walk in trouble just for you
Hauling buckets full of sand
Ferocious floods are on the way
Try to smile but only frown
Wade the river for you love
‘Fore nightfall I may drown

My Forgiven Soulmate

It's madness out there
Do you even care?
Even two
Feel lonely
Three - the weight of a world

These crimes of love
(Grace) from above
Commissioned in darkness
But we're not alone
I don't give a fuck about the sinner you used to be
And I don't give a fuck on the sins you left behind
I was looking for another love to be with me
In my darkest hours
My forgiven soulmate
Another partner in crime
Those voices you hear
From plays of Shakespeare
But never fear
I know the Word
Mighty just like a Sword

Others may say
And get in the way
But we in spirit
Not a number
Is the way to go
