Mark James Murphy Mind. Completely. Blown. It's as if Gordon Lightfoot was the singer of XTC but he sometimes morphs into Peter Gabriel and back. Those clear chiming guitars! Lyrics! Vocals! Lush mysterious pads! Elaborate song structures! This type of music only comes from top notch musical geniuses, and it doesn't come along very often in a lifetime. Favorite track: Sally's Ass.

Eric Willhelm Man oh man. It both excites and frustrates me to find music this good, hidden away from the world at large. Would that this music were as popular as it oughta be. Oh well, as the saying goes, "Kids today". Favorite track: Look Out Below.

nicholas bertling I heard a track on Alan Haber's show today, came right to Bandcamp to start listening, got totally sucked in by *Sally's Ass* (I can't be the only one) and found Look Out Below, which was so good, it made me simultaneously question my entire existence, and pay them for the damn record.

I'd gladly give you more money, or fly out and cut drums for your next album on my own dime if I had the scratch. This album is grand. Favorite track: Look Out Below.

Timothy Grant This is a pop masterpiece! Micheal's voice and harmonies are unbelievably excellent. Love his lyrics. Christian is the ultimate one man band. The music has so many complexities. Each time I listen to this record, I'm hearing more and more little things.
Favorite track: This Day.

Amanda B 03:02
AMANDA B Amanda B she always wanted to see her shame in lights Amanda B she never could divide up his double life, yeah She had the kind of things that dirty boys would line up to see All this testosterone only makes it hard for Amanda B Abandoned by a bowery boy and a mother with a gypsy soul No one could hold her and so they sold her for a song Now she’s gone You won’t forget her says the barker you can take it from me And all this barking only makes it "ruff" for Amanda B Standing in the side show shadow Like a peach in a banana boat No one to hold her Shoulders are colder when you're wrong Now she's on And flattery is all she needs to share the secret below Hermaphrodite is the name that’s on the sign at the show Here she goes.... (Big Band interlude...) You could undress her with your mind but you would never quite see (Oh no! Oh yeah!) The subtle differences that make it hard for Amanda B Sit back and let me tell you 'bout the birds and Amanda B

Sally's Ass 03:34
SALLY’S ASS Here she comes again She’s the talk of the town All the heads are turning at this lunch of higher learning But it’s all behind her now She drinks her milk from a cardboard box But she drinks it with a crazy straw All this recreation only leads to masturbation At the very thought of Sally’s ass Here he comes as well He’s the cock of the walk She knows that he’s been talking she’s been talking him down And everybody knows it’s just talk And I think that it’s so bosso cool The way she treats him like a fool All this blind frustration and this constant aggravation And the very thought of Sally’s ass He’s as stubborn as a mule Walks her both to and from school But I helped her with her papers Now I can take her away ...... From him There I go again, I’m the butt of the joke The little man behind you if you stop short I will find you And I really don’t mean to blow smoke But I have loved you all year long I broke a G-string when I wrote this song All this inspiration only leads to isolation And quiet thoughts of Sally’s ass Hush…. I want to take her away And if she’d of let me be her fool I might have even finished school All this education never led to graduation Just a simple song of Sally’s ass The very thought of Sally’s ass The thought of Sally’s fuckin' ass Fuckin’ a

THIS WAY AND THAT Solar flare unaware piece of cake easy as Tumbling mumbling this way and that way Opening everything under the staircase The same face saving the grace this way and that way You are the sheep I'm just following You are the food I'm just swallowing all you up Terrified tongue tied abysmal a criminal Fade away here to stay this way and that way This way and that way All of my nonsequietors connect in a way that I can’t explain to you This.....weigh them all up wrap them in a box Save them for later and dust them off When you need a friend This way or that way Amplified terminated exhausted goodbye I'm back again in the hole That way and this way Skeletons in the bed call the dog home throw me a bone It used to be This way and that way The cost of this nonsense is earning nothing But pennies on the eyes of the late great Heroes of heart who always knew right from end And every beginning was hanging by a thread This way and that way This way and that way How does it feel again ? Skin the cat fancy that Everyone’s brainstorming That way and this way Don’t touch the dial after a while I’ll turn you off Forget me or not it's This way and that way You are the sheep I'm just following You are the food I'm just swallowing all you up... Are you up?

FACE OF THE SUN Twelve hours have come and gone The night chased you into the west The world and I wind down Perchance to dream Then you quietly rise in the east Giving life to the skies as you shine through the trees In the shade from the strength of you heat And the children come out and they play and they run And they smile in the face of the sun Two thousand one years on A shadow falls upon the west The moon blocks out the sun Or so it seems Then you quietly rise in the east Giving life to the skies as you shine through the trees And the children come out and they play and they run And smile in the face of the sun Evening finds you way down the moon comes as you lay down again Then you violently rise in the east There’s a fire in the sky daisies cut through the trees And the faithful are brought to their knees And the children come out and they pray and they run And fly in the face of the sun Morning finds you on your way up With blues skies and a gray dove Hmmm.. Then you silently sink in the west Putting us in the dark and our faith to the test We long to believe we are blessed And the children come out and they play and they run And smile in the face of the sun Smile in the face of the sun In the face of the sun

LOOK OUT BELOW Look out below The engines on fire and I’m feeling like I’ve lost control Look out below I’m falling from the heavens to a bed of demons crawling low Look out below I’m changing with the weather and the next thing I remember I surrender to the undertow Suddenly faith looks up to see me safely through the sorrow Friends and loves reflecting pictures of tomorrow Look out below I tumble through the thunder When she pulled the rug from under love Look out below I’m running out of power on a tower where a coward jumps I’m changing with the weather and the next thing I remember I surrender to the undertow Suddenly faith looks up to see me safely through the sorrow Friends and loves reflecting pictures of tomorrow Look out below

I WISH YOU WELL Feeling the calm on the water all of our friends have gone home Sitting alone there's an old picture of me without out you The message you sent like a stranger the weight of the words that I hold There's no resisting the words that are twisting around you Storm shades are raging it's all quite engaging and I wish you well I wish you well The sentence is scathing , I admire your phrasing and I wish you well I wish you well My former your latter it doesn’t really matter if I wish you well I still wish you well Everything’s shaded you faded me into your tears I was old and jaded and you were young beyond your years I wish you well Storm shades are raging it's all quite engaging and I wish you well I wish you well Your sentences was scathing I admired your phrasing and I wish you well...I wish you well Before it gets too quiet lets spearate the dirt from the fear My laundry wasn’t dry yet and you were still wet behind the ears I wish you well Sentences scathing and I admire your phrasing and I wish you well I wish you well A memory for saving a handout for waving and I wish you well Goodbye my belle I wish you well And I wish you well These are words that go together .... There's no resisting the words that are twisting around you These are words that go together These are words that go together

Underlined 03:05
UNDERLINED Underlined Not to put to bold a point on it Every explanation point of mine Underlined Always makes you make so much of it And I hate the way you love it Dotting all the I’s I....don’t know how to act your age I must be on a different page But you got me getting it Your type setting it straight Underlined Not to but to bold a point on it Every excalamation point is mine Over time you mind your p’s and q’s You can bobbin weave and hunt and peck and Choose to emphasize I know it’s close to closing time I'm looking for an opening line But you wrap me in parenthesis If love comes in twos and threes I’m Underlined Everybody tows the line All you need is right under nose All you gotta do is read between I’d love to stay but its time for me to go Everybody knows that time is something you can italicize Undermined I don’t know how to act your age I must be on a different page But you got me getting it you’re typesetting it straight Everybody tows the line I'd really love to stay All you gotta do is read between But maybe it's time to go away Everybody knows in time But life goes on as long as I'm Underlined

WORLD THAT SHE WANTED World that she wanted All fair games Eternal flames burn in the World that she wanted Closing my eyes looking for a place where Gods live to help souls on their way Her picture perfect gaze Made me believe in the World that she wanted Thoughts run high Living the temple of the World that she wanted A spiritual rise flying for a place where Peace comes to time Release the dove And everything is love Like the eastern winds that brought her Love like the sweetest holy water I am the son the ghost the father Caught in the.... World that she wanted Gods live to help souls on their way Her picture perfect daze Made me believe

BOXING SHADOWS It doesn’t seem that long ago she had you up against the ropes Your heartbeat matching hers pound for pound But she dropped you in the second round And you can’t seem to get back up and after all this Time is the healer but it's not time yet She’s on the sidewalk like a shillouette And every time the sun come out a bell rings in your head Boxing shadows of her Take your best swing get back in the corner now you're Boxing shadows of her You’ll forget her yet you can’t forgive her Cause you’re boxing shadows of her Memories rushing out Boxing shadows of doubt Kick you when you’re down Boxing shadows about Boxing shadows now Boxing of shadow of her Oh yeah, oh no, yeah A sucker punch but you were in the right All you wanted was a good clean fight She bobs and weaves and lies and pulls your hair The awful truth is that she isn’t there And it’s so easy to forget To forgive divine intervention But she’s not done yet She’s on the sidewalk like a cigarette And every she puts you out a bell rings in your head Boxing shadows of her Take your best swing get back in the corner, now you’re Boxing shadows of her You’ll forget her yet you can’t forgive her Cause you’re boxing shadows of her Memories rushing out Boxing shadows of doubt Kick you when you’re down Boxing shadows about Boxing shadows now Boxing of shadow of her

JACK IS OUT OF HIS CAGE The walls made of wire the floor is made of sand I'll I got’s a seed of thought but Jack has got a plan He'll pretend I'm him and I’ll pretend he’s me He'll do anything I can to help to set him free When the latch is lifted I’ll take to the sky Yeah the latch is lifted time for me to fly Jack is out of his cage Ever since they closed the door and threw him in this hole It’s the constant institutionalization of his soul Richard Branson understands the reason for his plight Charlie Manson gives him absolution for his flight When the latch is lifted I’ll blow this stupid swing Yeah the latch is lifted there’s nothing left for me to sing Jack is out of his cage Yeah he's out of his cage He says nothing ventured nothing gained, he's out of his cage Now he's free for a change, now he's flown out of range Maybe he’s too high The gravity of lows He dreamed he killed two birds Counting Sheryl’s black crows And if by some flight of fancy he should make it back to Sean He’d probably say this Cliff hanger is up and come and gone Hey the latch was lifted am I Icarus or a stone Yeah the latch is lifted either way I'm home Jack is out of his cage Yeah he's out of his cage He says nothing ventured nothing gained, he's out of his cage Jack is out of his cage; Jack is out of his cage

Two Words 03:39
TWO WORDS Collin threw Neil Young away and married a girl of God Now he's a holy man, yeah he's a holy man Never was religious so his friends though it was strange But they were all there just the same And it all came down to two words Sara Jane and Mark had to chalk it up to experience He wasn’t strong enough she wasn’t young enough All the things they tried to do to turn one into two They sailed away into different blue And it all come down to two words It all came down to two words And then the first thing I thought It was the first thing I thought Love was here in my life And then the next thing I thought it was last thing I thought Rising like a phoenix from the fire Heather packed her dreams and changed her name to Isatu Got married in Africa She's back from Africa The rhythm of commitment pouring out of every pore Ill give you mine if you give me yours And it all comes down to two words If all comes down to two words Then it all comes down to....... And then the third thing I thought It was the last thing I thought Love was back in my life And then the last ring I bought was my lack of forethought Someone tried to Take my wife,...Please

NICE ENOUGH GUY H seemed like a nice enough guy How was she to know that he would make her want to cry? And was he a foe or a friend? He said he'd stay forever and fever never ends But how could she know that it’s all just a lie? He seemed like a nice enough guy She seemed like a nice enough girl Someone he could dive into an oyster for his pearl But was she a friend or a foe? Well he doesn’t know which is which But she's his life and life’s a bitch And I wonder why she walked out on his world She seemed like a nice enough girl anice enough girl Nice enough to say she wants to wear my ring Life is tough and I’ve begun to see my way through everything How could she know that it’s all just a lie? He seemed like a nice enough guy Nice enough to say she wants to wear my ring Life is tough and I've begun to see my way through everything And seems like a nice enough place So why is there still so much desperation on my face And why can’t we all just be friends? You don’t get the punch line yet You’ll get it in the end So try to be kind to your baby tonight You seem like nice enough guys, nice enough guys You seem like nice enough guys, nice enough guys

GET AROUND GIRL Resting uncomfortably on the floor in her mind she’s chasing a squirrel They’ve been in your life forever I’ll help you get around girl Unfamiliar sound at the door, is the parameter secure? You’ve protected me forever I’ll help you get around girl Get around girl I’ll help you get around Get around girl I’ll keep you safe you sound I will hold you up this time Protecting what’s yours and mine Far from the cage at the Westside pound I was lost the day you were found You’ve been in my life forever I’ll help you get around Get around girl When you have fallen down Get around girl I’ll get you off the ground I will hold you up this time If there were two where there were four Each time I turn you I'll love you more And I f there were wheels where there were legs It would make much more sense when you beg Resting comfortably by the door, welcome back to our little world Wouldn’t be home without you, we’ve got you "get around girl" Get around girl I’ll put your water down Get around girl Until you come around Protecting what is yours and mine I will hold you up this time No matter whatever I’ll never put you down Get around girl

Supervision 04:07
SUPERVISION I don't trust myself when I'm with you Cause you wear the kind of clothes I see through And you know I've got my eyes on you But to see you I need supervision I’ve been running from a dream of you You’ve been hiding in your secret dark room And you know I’ve got my eyes on you But to see you I need supervision same old symptom Till I’m over you ill need supervision yeah All this time I though I was immune But I still figure in your faded cartoon There’s a part of you that sees me though But to see you I need supervision same old symptom Till I’m over you ill need supervision And its true we both moved on The love we had is gone on and on and on and on Till I’m over you ill need supervision And its true we both moved on the love we had is gone on and on and on and on I was blinded by the likes of you The closest distance between two points of view And I know that I’ve been tried it's true When I see you I'll have supervision

This Day 02:50
THIS DAY This day, this day, this day is like no other This day, on this day, this day I've found another love And I have seen so many lonely days But this day, this day This day the clouds won't bother On this day this day I'm rising like the sun True colors run from shades of blue and gray On this day, this day Some days are filled with sorrow some days are filled with pain This day was good enough to let me love again I found another love and there’s so many good things I could say On this day, this day Some days are filled with sadness some days are filled with pain This day was good enough to let me love again Some day, not this day, but one day well make a promise That way they won't say that this day was just another song And now I know just why my heart was saved for this day For this day.

Curtain Call 04:12
CURTAIN CALL All talk and no action you play your part from the very back row The lights go down while I wait in the wings so come on let’s get on with the show Say your lines with conviction You take your take your bow and you exit stage right The morning papers say we're talk of the town but the roses have died over night No room for the little mistakes that make us miss our ques It’s only the roar of the crowd that keeps me from blissfully missing you Carry the weight of us all around you Carry the weight of us all trying to break the fourth wall around you Stumble out here and we fall curtain call curtain call All talk no action You make the scene not so long seem so slow So try and act like you've made up your mind 'cause it's time to get back to the show No room for the little mistakes that make us miss our ques It’s only the roar of the crowd that keeps me from blissfully missing you Carry the weight of us all around you Carry the weight of us all trying to break the fourth wall around you Little by little we fall Carry the weight of us all around you Carry the weight of us all trying to break the fourth wall around you Stumble hat trick and we fall Curtain call curtain call

about

Groovy Lemon Pie is a music product from the odd minds of Michael Sherwood and Christian Nesmith is the culmination of talent, inspiration and mad genius. These songs were recorded a few years back and left to lay fallow until now. Unearthed like rare gems, or dusty volumes of ancient poems these songs are now free to get the recognition they deserve.
