about

I didn't have much money to buy everyone a Christmas gift this year, so instead I threw together a short little album for all of my relatives and friends. Now I'm releasing it to the public. This album (as the name implies) is very stripped down. I didn't have time to record with a full drum set or to do any flashy production work, so it is what it is. You can check the lyrics to the songs by clicking the "lyrics" link next to the song title. Also, if you want to buy a physical copy, I'll make you one with unique, hand drawn album art! I hope you all had great holidays!
Enjoy,
Jamarcus Drake

Track Name: Angels We Have Heard on High
Angles we have heard on high
Sweetly sing or' the plains
And the Mountains in reply
Echo their joyous strain

Gloria in Excelsus Deo
But remember your pain
So, Gloria in Excelsus Deo
But don't be afraid of your brain
Track Name: Newsie Blues
Throw me a bill!
I'll get you the latest news
Throw me a bill!
Help me with the newsy blues
I'm just a young boy slingin' some papes, now
Livin' a hard life on my own
Only a job that pays an insult
Someone better throw me a bone

Long time on the orphan road
Earned my stripes sleeping out in the cold
Waking up to deliver some words
to wealthy people whose visions are blurred!
hoping someone will see me!
Track Name: Brother
Home,
Remember when
we were sailing
in that boat?
The waves crashed
and we tipped..
you hit your head,
cracked and split
I was fine,
but I shared your pain
now you've healed
and we ride again

and though we're on
different ships;
Stuck at the hip
Track Name: Dog Pound

Track Name: Ludwig II of Bavaria
The following is a true story:

All I wanted was a home like
big like,
stone, with defense like a turnpike, out of sight
image of my face on the curtain wall,
beats bumpin' at the concert hall, fuck it, and a shopping mall
all the finest foods in the area,
gold plated letters on the portcullis say Bavaria
salt water mote with dolphins and a club of boats
Wilhelm gave a loan but he said he wants a promissory
note
he said, "no more castle shit,
this is for the debt that you owe to the architect,
you are exceeding past your opulence purchasing all those monuments,
spend the cheddar wisely or your crew might plan an 'accident'"

fuck that, turned it down
I'm a king, not a commoner
I should have the things that I want without a monitor
My ministers, declare that I'm insane, they must be jocular
attempting deposition while I purchase Spanish Alcazars!
Track Name: Lovely Oil
Lovely Oil, stuck underground
It's blocked out by the bedrock
I know these words are not eloquent, they misinform
But Enigma, they fit you like a glove
You live underground
Reach out through rock
You're seeing years.
Underground,
places a weight (on your back)
high potential
Lovely Oil
