about

My own heartache album. Now with cool limited edition cassette tape!

These songs were written and recorded between a bad breakup and a fantastic relationship. All were inspired by feelings and/or real events. This wasn't the first time I turned to music for self-help and expression but it is indeed the most expansive. Musically, new terrain is covered. There's a country song, an 80s throwback with 808s and samplers, Kanye-inspired autotune, Radiohead. There's also strong help from my musical sensei, redvoid.

All my music is selfish. This one especially so. If you're able to enjoy the ride, it surely says more about your musical palette than my ability to create music.

Thanks for listening, especially if you give me money.

Track Name: Joy and Pain
[verse1]
maybe you cheated one way or another
maybe your brothers became my brothers
maybe you showed me your way of life
that I’ll keep in everyday of my life
maybe you showed how sexy you can be
maybe you showed me how a girl gets mean
maybe you were my prototype dame
but you all caused me JOY AND PAIN
HOOK

[verse2]
maybe we hung before I started rapping
maybe you’re cute all curled up napping
maybe you saw me rocking faces but
definitely babe, we went places
maybe we went short or went far
maybe we did it on a beach or car
Kanye wrote about the Blame Game
and you all caused me JOY AND PAIN
HOOK

[verse3]
this mixtape is my creation to
All My Girls, a dedication
please feel good, don’t feel sad but
about my rhymes, don’t get mad
cause in truth there is beauty like
in your pants you got a booty
Steven Rush, that is my name
to all my ladies and JOY AND PAIN
HOOK

[verse4]
you all caused me joy and pain
even you my prototype dame
i saw how sexy you could be
plus even that girls get mean
i saw your way of life
that’s in every day of my life
your brothers became my brothers
you cheated one way or another
Track Name: Look at You
Nowwww
Here’s a little story I gotsa about
funky49 who you know so well
broke things off and quit a team
things weren’t going the way of my dreams,
coulda been better with my speech, but I
did my best with the words in my reach, now
this is true - have no doubt, truth is stranger
than any... fiction... about...

this one - GIRL, i dated this - GIRL
broke off this - GIRL, survived this - GIRL
this one - GIRL, i dated this - GIRL
broke off this - GIRL, survived this <guitar stab>

spoken: Man. You’re not ready for this story

she made it tough to replace her stuff
devoured by Katie my loveable pup but I
replaced a poster frame and peep it
three bras by Fredrick’s Secret
she tried to paint me as some douche for
turning her loose, mad for any excuse
didn’t take her bait, her stuff replaced when
she slammed a door in her dog’s face
That attitude finally got me mad
Reminded this girl... about her past months
back, i got HER out of trouble
after she blacked out behind a night club
in Channelside, it looks real chic
inside, she punched a dude in the BEAK
… kept chill as she stepped close and said
“whatcha gonna do, break my nose?”

spoken: oh man… I should have NOT brought that up!

HOOK

weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeell
THAT set her off, great
At my car she threw a milk crate!
immediately man, I was outta there
her beyond reason and beyond care
got in my car thinking I was good until
uhhh, she climbed on my car hood!
her girl freaked, no more calm
I dialed nine one one on my palm
didn’t know what I was supposed to do so I
high-tailed it to a Wal-Mart dude.
bought a huuuuge ass metal flashlight
hollared at redvoid to hang for the night
Caught up with her girl who witnessed this
didn’t have to worry about my physical fitness
home safe was my ex... fast asleep
but that night i barely slept a wink

HOOK

One guy’s dime is another’s change, took
control of my life with a re-arrange
...no more girl means no more action but
this is addition via subtraction
...it’s never fun to break up...
just wanna feel it when I wake up
...even tho things didn’t end so well
thanks for listening to the story I had to tell

Track Name: Twitter Crushed
I see you in my timeline tweeting every day, your
pops would freak if you talked that way, re-
tweeting me is like a festival, but
you replying back? That’s the best of all.
Wish I was your real life Favorite, star me, you’re
Hot like a stolen car, blonde Ferrari
but we’re not in the same zip code, sorry
don’t wanna wind up on tv, Maury
Povich, know this, wanna climb inside your mind
kiss my lips if I seem to rhyme all the time
I shouldn’t even talk, I might spoil it
not bad for app used on the toilet
I’m just a weirdo, Twitter admirer
time-space continuum connection desirer
you got good looks, brain fulla good books and
I’m SO damn proud that I wrote this hook

I came for the avatar, stayed for the tweets
You came for the rhyme, stayed for the beats x2

step one, getting you to follow me
number two, getting you to swallow me
girl, you should never have acknowledged me
learn your ways while you start to college me
graduate and we both cum laude
love that TwitPic with your girls all rowdy
if I was there? it would be twice as LOUD see
but never in person have we said howdy
you’re on my screen, in my dreams
livin so far away... so it seems
we’re never ever gonna get to SEE each other
how we gonna know if we NEED each other?
haven’t heard the sound of your voice
or even if you like my Beastie Boys
we never even stood in the same room
close enough to smell your perfume

HOOK

one day you were never alive
you committed Twittercide
didn’t know there was a right time
shouldn’t have kept - all of this inside
now you’re gone
all I got is this song
… Twitter Crushed
Track Name: Blue Sky Girl
VERSE1
she don’t exist in space and time
she only lives inside my mind
she don’t mind a mind elevated,
maybe even a bit..... faded
hygienic, she takes care of herself
eat a phat burger but aware of her health
this girl smart she know things,
like we tight WAY before a ring
big heart - she down for romance
athletic, she got warrior stance,
fleet feet, music up in her ears
new things learned every single year

[hook]
She’s gonna make me lose my mind - Blue Sky Girl x2
She’s gonna make me go all out - Blue Sky Girl x2
She’s gonna make me act a fool - Blue Sky Girl x2
She’s gonna make me lose my cool - Blue Sky Girl x2

[verse2]
if this is too cheesey... go ahead and laugh, i
want a collage of our photographs
got good looks, read good books
tag team dream team whenever we cook
knows what’s right, does what’s right
decisions wise, easy sleep at night
sexy next to me, breast on me
always bringing out the best of me
Girl with me as your man...
you gotta be down with travel plans
‘round the world strapped with backpacks or
from the bed to the kitchen and back in the sack

[[verse 3]]
since you took a chance. on. me .
you still like to dance. with. me.
with the right glance. from. me.
you’re taking the pants. off. me.
wanna learn from you, yearn for you, burn for you
need anything i turn to you
in your presence I feel safe with you and
only heartache when away from you
make love to me, get in trouble with me,
clean shaven or got a stubble on me
eat right together, clever together,
no matter the weather, we better together
Track Name: Don't Need Tequila
[hook]
Don’t need tequila, don’t need lime
all i want is you by my side
day time, night time, it’s good with you
...
sail away forget about the bills
sun is out but you give me chills
hoping for a touch that will warm me up

[verse1]
sweet stuff, hurry up so we can slow down
pedal to the metal as we leave this town
head for th horizon where there ain’t no crying
too much living to be thinking about dying
get away, run away is the same scheme
lookin in the same way with the same dream
engine reving high so we can’t hear
trouble disappears in the rear view mirror
dry your tears, hide your fears
grab my hand, let me pull ya near
forget about trouble - it’s in the past
gonna have a blast - just gotta haul ass
[hook]

[verse2]
relaxing so hard that Jimmy Buffett’s jealous
love the look I get from all the fellas
when they see ecstasy in you and me
thinking about birdies, thinking about bees
things get wet we’ll just take’em off
worries come up we’ll just shake’em off
things get simple after being so complex
the tough decision is what to drink next
dry your tears, hide your fears
grab my hand and let me pull ya near
forget about trouble - it’s in the past
having a blast since we hauled ass
[hook]
Track Name: Wrong Tree
[verse1]
Coming by to hang with me around your neck what do I see a necklace...
...that guy bought you
….
You don’t know what you did to me was an insult to an injury
a hard pill... I had to swallow
…. cuz
the other day I made by hand a bracelet... from this here man
with a special message... from me to you
…. and
I try to be big, I try to be tough but like Cher says I’ve been brutally rebuffed and SHIT,
this is how I feel


[Hook - Mike]
The wrong tree, the wrong tree, the wr-ong tree
the wrong tree, the wr-ong tree
x2

[verse2]
When you show up at my place there a million and NONE reasons why you’re late
leaving my poor head... scratchin
….
One thing I fear for you that I don’t know when it’s coming back
what the heck... the world took from you
...
Givin you time and givin affection but i’m not FEELING like your selection
like I just don’t... inspire... you

You make time with folks that bring you down,
bring you frowns, let’s TURN that around
if you only bet... on little ol’ me

x2

Mike Faulkner everybody!

[Bridge]

[verse3]
It’s not that you say it to my face but your ACTIONS put me in my place
they let me know... what’s going on

You talk about us with good notions but my EYES I don’t don’t see the motions
of what... you and I could be
...
in the galaxy I place my trust what the FUTURE has in store for us
what will be.... has gonna be
… and
I’ll say thats’ it I’m done with you when I can’t make a smile come from you
maybe it was puppy love all along -
WOOF!
