Slammer 03:15
SLAMMER get up and go i’m gonna start the show i’m gonna let you know that i’m gonna blow all that held me back now i’m gonna attack every demon and act and i’m gonna react (refrain): i spent too much time in the slammer i’m finally getting out and with every illusion shattered i bail myself out seeing the signs and i know i’m divine breaking out of the binds that had left me for blind and i’m starting to see again, i’m getting free i’m getting, back to me and i’m feeling quite pleased (repeat refrain) (bridge): lalalala baby it’s finally time to go out and get mine lalalala baby it’s long overdue what i’m meaning to do lalalala baby i’m through with the past through with kicking my ass lalalala baby i’ve gone to explore gone to open new doors time to reflect then it’s time to accept then it’s time to perfect time to stand erect ‘cause i’m living a dream with a knowledge supreme i’ve got a brand new sheen jumping over the beam (repeat refrain) (repeat bridge) (repeat refrain x2) Written by Rex Allen Baunsit, (c)2017.

WASTE OF TIME (OVER IT) well it took me way too long to get me to the point where I’m back to feeling fine and not so out of joint had a few final hurrahs of wanting someone dead now I’m over it over it over that shit i was stumbling around mumbling like a fool i was caught in a delusion breaking the wrong rules had to throw out the garbage and go back to school now I’m over it over it over that shit about time that I got back to writing a song that actually felt liberating about time I decided to say so long to emotional masturbating to the worn-out issues that I looked at one too many times well my heart was emptied out my brain practically dead feeling far behind looking like i’m way ahead when things were looking up all that I could feel was dread now I’m over it over it over that shit i took a long time ’cause you messed up my bliss i was happy in my life and you literally pissed all over what I built from scratch with my fists but I’m over it over you over that shit about time that I haven’t seen that face in years and I don’t even gotta destroy it about time that my vision is finally clear now that such a sick, contorted influence is not a factor in the operation of my life all evidence erased now no relevance no trace now history nonexistent now all evidence erased now no relevance no trace permanently deleted now notwithstanding this reckoning in spite of my smile i’m moving right along we’ll never reconcile you cannot be recycled you’re in the trash pile now i’m over it over it over your shit about time now that everything that was wrong has finally been corrected about time now i’m finally ’bout to end this song ’cause now i’m so disaffected as if you never existed so i don’t care if you’re dead or alive ’cause you’re that much of a lie and you’re a waste of time a waste of time it was a waste of time a waste of time don’t wanna waste my time waste my time not gonna waste my time waste my time all evidence erased now no relevance no trace now (repeat) (ad libs) i was caught in a delusion breaking the wrong rules had to throw out the garbage and go back to school you’re just a waste of time, and i’m over it, over that shit Written by Rex Allen Baunsit, (c) 2017.

Big Dick 04:01
BIG DICK i heard you got a big dick is that why everybody tolerates you? acting like a big dick you think nobody knows that you’re a fake dude with the soapbox that you’re standing on getting kinda shaky, gonna fall through but if i had a big dick could i get away with as much as you do? ‘cause i bet you think you’re happy when you’re easily enraged think you wrote the book of wisdom, you can’t even turn the page you surround yourself with sycophants who think they’re being paid you believe in your own myth, everybody’s getting played you think you’re such a big dick in that you think you’ve got everyone else fooled you really think you’ve seen it all stubbornly resisting any new rules and you love it when they kiss your ass but i am not the only one who sees through you really know how to project owning up to your shit is not what you do and it’s funny how everyone just can’t wait to get in line compromising individuality time after time and you colour anything that doesn’t fit into your box with well-articulated bullshit, pseudo-intellectual talk! here’s my red herring time to prorogue you here’s my red herring i did not vote for you (repeat) i’ve decided i’m not gonna fall in line i don’t care if that means i’m gonna have a harder time especially since i’ve come so far and i’ve not given in conformity is something i’ve never been interested in it’s a sin in my religion it’s a sin so i won’t suck your big dick i’m not gonna compromise to get through this life that i’m enjoying much don’t care about the bullshit you aspire to and you bet i’ll be so happy and i won’t be so enraged ‘cause i’m writing my own book of wisdom, writing my own page i don’t need a team of sycophants, i just need my good friends i don’t need your value system, i prefer mine in the end don’t want your big dick don’t need your big dick don’t want your big dick (x3) won’t suck your big dick won’t eat your big dick you’re just a big dick!!

Asian Driver 03:58
ASIAN DRIVER i’m gonna get in your lane and piss you off i’m gonna be the one you blame when you get a cough i’m gonna block your cock when you want some ginger – we were here first all of your expectations is what I’m not well it’s such a funny scene everybody around me acts exactly like me but it’s always only me that they tend to scrutinize ‘cause they don’t want to oblige to the way I’m always seen What a novelty to see (chorus 1): i’m an asian driver i don’t have the time to follow all the signs like a fuckin’ concubine i’m an asian driver i’m not gonna play nice if you want some of my rice you better eat the spice! i didn’t get this far playing up to type the soft spoken subservient kind of prototype ‘cause I only get what I want working twice as hard so i can be visible enough not to discard so i’m driving on my path and i’m stepping on the gas i don’t mean to cut you off but you’re privileged enough ‘cause when everybody sees you as somebody to beat someone not to share the road with, it puts you in the mode (repeat chorus 1) (chorus 2): ‘cause i am a survivor you better give it up ‘cause i will not live up to the image you thought up i’m an asian driver won’t do what you expect i won’t always say yes i won’t bow for your respect everybody’s focusing on me instead of hating everyone equally everybody’s looking for opportunity to cut in line and get all the victory and everybody thinks that it isn’t fair when someone who looks like me doesn’t wanna share as if i’m the only one who’s not playing fair as if i’m the only one acting unaware everybody’s got their ideas ‘bout what i do but i probably speak better English than you i suck at math and i won’t fix your computer -- get a clue sir i’ve measured up more than once with the likes of you so you can block me on your grind and continue to malign ‘cause i’m gonna stick around and continue to confound everything you preconceive all the bullshit you believe either way i’m gonna drive on this road and i’ll thrive (repeat chorus 1 and 2) i’m gonna get in your lane and piss you off!

Pay Up 04:45
PAY UP i’m not too proud to pay up after everything I gave up i’m not too proud to pay up i’ve proved I’m worthy enough every prize has a price i’ve earned the right to buy my just rewards i’m not too proud to pay up now that i’m making enough i’m not too proud to pay up now i’m allowed to touch you can’t try before you buy so break my wallet and you won’t break my heart (chorus): i know what i’m getting, i know this life don’t have a money back guarantee i know what i’ve gotten, i know the consequence of getting what you want for free so i’m not too proud to pay up i much prefer the set up i’m not too proud to pay up for no delusion, and no break up by the way, when you legalize you’re less likely to victimize my dear (repeat chorus) (refrain): nothing is free, yeah so tell me how much is it gonna be? nothing is free, yeah be upfront and i might just pay the fee i’m not too proud to pay up worked hard and i have saved up whether you work out at the gym or just dig in to your savings we’re getting what we want everyone’s got their favourite restaurant (repeat chorus) (repeat refrain) nothing is free and i’m jaded been frustrated trying to fit to what society tells me is the big ideal but what is real is that it’s not my destiny to live up to idealized commercialized stupid superficial fantasy and now that i’m a bit more wealthy i think it’s healthy to face this reality, hey hey! i’m not too proud to pay up i’ve proved i’m worthy enough i’m not too proud to pay up now that i’m making enough i’m not too proud to pay up now i’m allowed to touch i’m not too proud to pay up nothing is free that’s the way we’ve built society, you and me nothing is free be upfront and i might just pay the fee i’m staying healthy psychologically so tell me how much is it gonna be? i’m not too proud to pay up...

AM I STILL A CREEP yes, i'm judgemental towards shallow people but i know i'm not the one whose perspective is feeble because i can see the beauty in the lack of embellishment i much prefer the grown to the manufactured personalities are not in keeping with my spirit they clip my wings and push me to the limit i start to think that stupid things are really important so get out of my face if you think it's that important (chorus): is my hair looking nice? is that boy looking at me? what mind games can i play so that i can get my way? is my wallet really fat? is my stomach really skinny? is my beauty only skin deep? am i still a creep? i've spent some time in the land of the vacuous that i did not kill somebody is really quite miraculous i started to believe that i really did belong in a state of eternal sleep, i found out i was wrong so i got really mad and the truth i had to face and i took myself out, i was gone without a trace and i don't think i ever want to return again to a place where life is only, worthy when your hair's looking nice... (into repeated chorus) in a sea of outsiders, i'm a misfit 'cause i'm one of the chosen few, who can deal with it in a sea of outsiders, i'm a misfit 'cause i'm one of the chosen few, who don't give a shit you can say i'm mean, i don't see the humanity in shallow people's schemes but that's not reality i know 'cause i've been there and i've played the game and it's fun for awhile 'til you cause yourself the pain, of living on the surface, living like it don't matter that the pictures we paint are easy to shatter when you try to ignore that our life is defined by so much more than just the, bottom line or if your hair's looking nice.....(into repeated chorus) Written by Rex Allen Baunsit, (c) 2017.

about

RexySpice Toronto, Ontario

I aim for an aesthetic that is equal parts lyrical wit and acoustic angst. If Chrissie Hynde and Billy Bragg had a kid raised by Madonna and Ani DiFranco, I’d like to think he’d sound just like me. I used to call myself acoustic punk, but that felt rather conflicting and restricting given my love of the Spice Girls. I’m spending 2016 recording a long-overdue album and can’t wait for you hear it. ... more
