about

We the faculty and staff of the Junkyard Academy welcome you...have a donut.

As this is our first time out of the gate with no management and very little support, 'Class is in Session' seemed an appropriate title for this EP. We're getting a pretty good education, one track at a time...which is how all this came together over the past few years with the support of my wife, family and friends...and one particular 'Bractune'.

I hope you enjoy this cross section of what we like to call 'Geek Pop for the Masses'

Sing, Dance, Live...

Track Name: Annabelle
Verse 1
=====
She walks with confidence
Into the classroom
All the other kids stop and stare
Like she’s wearin’ a costume
She’s got no school supplies
Walkin’ like a panther
And somewhere right behind them hazel eyes
She’s got the answers, She’s…

CHORUS
======
Annabelle
Oh Annabelle
She’s Annabelle
My Annabelle

Verse 2
=====
She don’t need that Summer school
She’s good at math
She spends her time calculating Pi
When she’s taking a bath
I don’t wanna’ come off sounding mean
She’s kinda’ cocky...She’s all…
“Zero, one, one, two, three, five”
...Like Fibonacci

CHORUS
======
Annabelle
Oh Annabelle
She’s Annabelle
My Annabelle

BRIDGE
=====
When it comes to numbers
She just see ‘em
She wants a tattoo of the
Pythagorean Theorem
Go ahead and ask her bout the
Quadratic Equation
You will witness the Hypotenuse of
Her elation
(Oh woah...etc...)

Verse 3
=====
If you ever have to ask yourself
“When will I use this stuff?”
Have a gander at Annabelle
That’ll be enough
That Euclidean Geometry
Just makes her steamy
So listen up I’ll only say this once
Be proud of being geeky for…

CHORUS
======
Annabelle
Oh Annabelle
My Annabelle
Oh Annabelle
Annabelle.....
Track Name: Bonaparte
VERSE 1
=====
Bonaparte was feeling lonely
Day and night he wore a frown
Fighting battles in which he knew he’d
Be letting all his people down

CHORUS
=====
He can’t make everyone happy
It’s his lot in life to loose
He didn’t even like his first name
Napoleon has got the blues
Napoleon has got the blues

VERSE 2
=====
Missing the smells of his homeland
And the breeze upon his face
He didn’t want to be a soldier
Exiled from the human race

CHORUS
======
He can’t make everyone happy
It’s his lot in life to loose
He didn’t even like his first name
Napoleon has got the blues
Napoleon iS

BRIDGE
=====
Cursing life on Elba
With his useless golden hand
He’s got an unnamed complex
AAAHHHH!

CHORUS
======
He can’t make everyone happy
It’s his lot in life to loose
He didn’t even like his first name
Napoleon has got the blues
Napoleon has got the blues

OUTRO
=====
Napoleon, Napoleon, Napoleon, Napoleon
Napoleon, Napoleon, Napoleon, Napoleon

(La Marseillaise plays)

Verse 1
======
It's just another hazy day (hey, hey, hey)
My head is spinnin' and I can't see straight (stray-ee-ee-ay-yate)

Prescriptions filled I'm slowly being killed...

Chorus

So this is me, now, I can't change it, I'm a subject
...backups -- Woah-ooh-woah-oh
My days are numbered, can't you see that, I'm not perfect

I wish that history could change so I could care less
...backups -- Woah-ooh-woah-oh
I live on borrowed time, my Prednisone is causing distress!
It's causing distress!

Verse 2
======
How many days have been divided by my state of mind yeah
Where did my mem'ry go I'm loosin' thoughts I'm misaligned, yeah
What happened to my endless stores of boundless energy, now
When will I manage to get out of this damn litany yeah!

Chorus
======
So this is me, now, I can't change it, I'm a subject
...backups -- Woah-ooh-woah-oh
My days are numbered, can't you see that, I'm not perfect
...backups -- Woah-ooh-woah-oh
I wish that history could change so I could care less
...backups -- Woah-ooh-woah-oh
I live on borrowed time, my Prednisone is causing distress!
It's causing distress!
Track Name: Standing in the Rain
VERSE 1
=======
Guess I was too late
This empty bench says everything, everything
About what we once had
You’ve thrown your towel into the ring the ring, yeah

CHORUS
======
Now I’m standing in the rain
Regretting things I said today and yesterday
Your bus is on the road
Heading to a distant zip code
Leaving me standing in the rain

VERSE 2
=======
We never figured out
W were constantly on the outs
Living day by day
There’s nothing left to say, no, no no…

CHORUS
======
But now I’m standing in the rain
Regretting things I said today and yesterday
Your bus is on the road
Heading to a distant zip code
Leaving me standing in the…

BRIDGE

Rain, it’s coming down, I’ll wear this frown, I’ll be so sad forever
I go back home, I find that note on the table;
“See you in Vegas”

CHORUS
======
But now I’m standing in the rain
Regretting things I said today and yesterday
Your bus is on the road
Heading to a distant zip code
Leaving me standing in the rain
Standing in the rain
Standing in the rain

…See you in Vegas
Track Name: Jennifer Alone
VERSE 1
=======
Yeah she just stood there looking at the sun
Nothing left to do with that empty gun
And everywhere around her, nothing but noise

CHORUS
======
But it’s all the same on her way downtown oh no….
It’s all that she could do to change what he had done oh yeah
Oh Jennifer, what have you done?
Oh---------Jennifer alone.

VERSE 2

The emptiness consumed her after what he had done
The brightness in her eyes had fled when he had run away
With the younger girl with boob job and a fade
Okay…

CHORUS
======
That’s what you get when vanity takes hold, oh yeah…
Oh you’ll spend your life without parole, oh yeah…
Oh Jennifer, what have you done?
Oh---------Jennifer alone.

CHORUS
======
That’s what you get when vanity takes hold, oh yeah…
Oh you’ll spend your life with no one to hold, oh no…
Oh Jennifer, what have you done?
Oh---------Jennifer alone.
Track Name: Don't Say Anything
Verse 1
It was a day like this we...Ran in the grass
Our parents were wond'ring where we were...'Cuz we skipped mass
Church was so very boring...We were rebels
Perched on a blanket on the hill...You're beautiful

CHORUS
Don't say anything, don't do anything
I want to remember you like this
Don't say anything, don't do anything
Forever we'll be like this , yeah

Verse 2
Laying up on the roof at night...We counted the stars
It was just after Two A.M....When they close the bars
I hope that they never find us...You're my best friend
I want us to be together...Until the end

CHORUS
Don't say anything, don't do anything
I want to remember you like this
Don't say anything, don't do anything
Forever we'll be like this , yeah

BRIDGE
Makin' shapes out of the clouds
The beating of your heart so loud, Uh huh...

CHORUS
Don't say anything, don't do anything
I want to remember you like this
Don't say anything, don't do anything
Forever we'll be like this , yeah
Don't say anything, don't do anything
I want to remember you like this
Don't say anything, don't do anything
Forever we'll be like this , yeah
Track Name: February Snow
-=Lyrics=-

Verse 1
And it's just another Saturday
And I'm waiting for the rain
Got my passport and my rollaway
Heading out to make my name

CHORUS
And I say whoa whoa whoa
It's the February snow
Whoa-ooh-Whoa, the freezing cold, the bitter cold
February snow

Verse 2
And the sacrifice is plentiful
Pourin' out my heart and soul
In the subways of America
It can take an awful toll

CHORUS
And I say whoa whoa whoa
It's the February snow
Whoa-ooh-Whoa, the freezing cold, the bitter cold
February snow


BRIDGE
Seems that I just keep on holdin' on
Fearing I might slip away
Seven years and counting, something's got to break
Guess I'll just play...

SOLO

Verse 3
Just behind my un-tuned reverie
Lies desire I bemoan
It wakes me early in the morning
But I know I'm coming home I'm coming home----

CHORUS
And I say whoa whoa whoa
It's the February snow
Whoa-ooh-Whoa, the freezing cold, the bitter cold
February
February
February snow
