I'M A Believer (With This Known)

Take your evil self away...
To lie and hide liar.
Liar.
I am not inspired,
By your lies.

Take your evil self away...
To lie and hide liar.
Liar.
I am not inspired,
By your lies.

'Cause...
I'm a believer,
With this known...
I'm here to grow,
With this known...
And I'm not gonna stop,
With this known...
To woe,
With this known.
And I am here to overcome,
Obstacles.
With this known.
With this known.

And with this known...
People will lip,
With this known...
To deceive.
And unknown is their evil.
But...
I'm not one to give up,
Because I'm a believer.
And with this known.

Take your evil self away...
To lie and hide liar.
Liar.
I am not inspired,
By your lies.

I'M An Entertainer As Well

I use to be the kind,
To just give away my stuff.
During the time I was convinced,
My willingness to share,
Would return respect.

And then one day,
It occurred to me my giving...
Had been expected not to end.
And those who I gave would use my stuff,
With a pretending it was theirs.

Today those yesterdays,
Of giving my stuff away have gone.
As so have those naysayers who oppose,
To think my asking to be compensated,
Is an ego I show that has been inflated.

Although,
No one had anything to say about my ego...
When it was believed I did not know,
What I gave away was valuable.

And if it had been ego,
From which I operated to inflate...
I could have done that years ago,
To keep my stuff and be as self-centered and petty...
Like the people who continue to feed on deeds,
While criticizing what others do...
To not know the value and price paid,
When time to find and mind to spend has been sacrificed.

You want something from me?

'Yes.
We would like to know,
If you'd mind writing something...
Or singing for our church program?
We will give you an hour.'

Sure.
It sounds great.
What is your budget?

'Budget?
BUDGET?
This is for the Lord. God. Our Father in Heaven.'

Oh.
Well...
I'm sure the 'Lord. God. Our Father Which Art in Heaven,
Will understand there's some folks here on Earth...
Got bills to pay. Food to eat.
And would love to be paid.
Show God that you can show me...
Just how highly favored I am.

'We can't do that.
But we can feed you to show you our appreciation.'

Tell that to your minister and musicians.
I am an entertainer as well.
God knows I don't need the exposure.
I hear the voice of God right now saying,
'Get Paid.'
Seek 'yea' the silence.
And hear to listen to the words from 'Our' Father.

'I don't hear a thing.'

Perhaps you are not as devoted as I am.
I'll be willing to negotiate,
When 'my' reality becomes a fact you'd like to pay for.

'God has bestowed upon you your gifts.'

I will say this...
You are getting closer to understanding,
What my needs are to maintain them.

'We CAN get someone else, you know? '

Call me if you want recommendations.
I know tons of folks,
Seeking exposure, cake and a free meal.

I'M Better Than That!

I know I'm not that...
Greedy.
I'm not,
Greedy a lot.

I know I'm better than just sleazy.
I'm not that,
Hopeless cat.

I know I'm not that...
Greedy.
I'm not,
Greedy a lot.

I know I'm better than just sleazy
I'm not that,
Hopeless cat.

So many pick up wrong meanings,
From what is perceived and...
Not known.

So many trip on just seeing,
What is believed and seen as shown.
What is believed and seen as shown.

I know I'm not that...
Greedy.
I'm not,
Greedy a lot.

I know I'm better than just sleazy
I'm not that hopeless cat.

I know I'm not that...
Greedy.
I'm not,
Greedy a lot.

I know I'm better than just sleazy
I'm not that,
Hopeless cat.
I'm better than that.

So many trip on just seeing,
What is believed and seen as shown.
What is believed and seen as shown.

I know I'm not that...
Greedy.
I'm not that,
Hopeless cat.
I'm better than that.

I know I'm not that...
Greedy.
I'm not that,
Hopeless cat.
I'm better than that.

So many trip on just seeing,
What is believed and seen as shown.
What is believed and seen as shown.

So many trip on just seeing,
What is believed and seen as shown.
But I'm not that,
Hopeless cat.
I'm better than that.

So many trip on just seeing,
What is believed and seen as shown.
But I'm not that,
Hopeless cat.
I'm better than that.

So many trip on just seeing,
What is believed and seen as shown.
What is believed and seen as shown.

I know I'm better than just sleazy
I'm not that,
Hopeless cat.
I'm better than that.

I know I'm better than just sleazy
I'm not that,
Hopeless cat.
I'm better than that.

So many trip on just seeing,
What is believed and seen as shown.
But I'm better than that.

So many trip on just seeing,
What is believed and seen as shown.
But I'm better than that.
Yes I'm...
I'm better than that!
Oh yes I'm,
I'm better than that!

I'M Boring

I like you and we get along great.
Like a little bit of pepper with salt for taste.
And I don't want you thinking I'm snooping just to peek,
But I got to use this minute quick to make sure this is it.
I'm boring,
Deeper into you I feel it needed.
I'm boring,
'Cause of possibilities I see.
I'm boring...
Way beyond the meeting of the greeting,
'Cause I see right now you are meant for me.

I'm boring,
Deeper into you I feel it needed.
I'm boring,
'Cause of possibilities I see.
I'm boring...
Way beyond the meeting of the greeting,
'Cause I see right now you are meant for me.

Deeper,
Are the questions of you that I ask.
Deeper,
Are your answers given back to me.
And deeper,
Into ourselves we get...
And this deepness makes us happy.

Deeper,
Are the questions of you that I ask.
Deeper,
Are your answers given back to me.
And deeper,
Into ourselves we get...
And this deepness makes us happy.

I'm boring,
Deeper into you I feel it needed.
I'm boring,
'Cause of possibilities I see.
I'm boring...
Way beyond the meeting of the greeting,
'Cause I see right now you are meant for me.

I like you and we get along great.
Like a little bit of pepper with salt for taste.

Deeper,
Are the questions of you that I ask.
Deeper,
Are your answers given back to me.
And deeper,
Into ourselves we get...
And this deepness makes us happy.

I'm boring,
Deeper into you I feel it needed.
I'm boring,
'Cause of possibilities I see.
I'm boring...
Way beyond the meeting of the greeting,
'Cause I see right now you are meant for me.
