HERE'S SOME COOL ART I MADE AND THE LYRICS EVERYBODY!

carlcreightonblog.files.wordpress.com/2016/11/omatthewlyrics.jpeg

AN OLD MAN WHO BECOMES YOU

You and me and a baby
Makes three, two
Wonderful dogs too
An old man who becomes you!

Days go by
Quicker than the clouds in the sky
Dying to give birth
All living things of the Earth!

You and me and a baby
Makes three, two
Wonderful dogs too
An old man who becomes you!

Flung from the rollercoaster
Ride I fell straight into your arms
Make sure to set the alarm!

You and me and a baby
Makes three, two
Wonderful dogs too
An old man who becomes you!
(x a lot of times)

GIVE IT TO ME

Give it to me
I know ya been waitin a while
Give it to me
and lose it in style

Ya got nothin holdin ya back boy
Just a world that’s full of pleasure and joy
How happy we both will be
When you give it
Give it
Give it to me.

Give it: to me.
I know you been waitin a while.
Give it to me
Let me give you a smile! :)

Ya got nothin holden ya back boi
Just a world that’s full of pleasure and joi
How happy we both will be
When you give it
Give it
Give x 2 mi

I PITY THE POOR GAY FAT KID

I pity the poor gay fat kid
Hidden in his blankets
On a Sunday afternoon
All he knows of love is cartoons

Playing Gabriel Knight all night
Grace Nakimura
Playing some guitar too
Feeling old when everything’s new

Fighting with his sister for dial-up
Hoping someone remembers his name
Feeling a part of him leaving every time he came

Wondering which part of him’s pretty
And if loving that part is vain
Taking different angles of his face
’Til he looks insane
’Til he feels insane

I pity anyone who pities anyone
I guess I’m awesome
You thought you were awesome too
What do I know, what do you?

COMMERCE AT THE MALL

Everything that’s big looks small
When you commerce at the mall
We can go to Barnes and Nobel and
Get Ice Coffee

Take the escalator up!
Take the escalator down!
It’s impossible to frown :(
When you Commerce @ the Mall :)

Rainy does won’t get you grim
If you fitness at the gym 3——->
When you’re high you don’t even know what you’re doing

Am I running? Am I squatting?
Are my braincells really rotting?
Does it matter that I’m fatter than I was before the gym?.

Everything that’s big looks small!
When you commerce at the mall!
We can go to BARNES AND NOBEL and
Get Iced, Coffee!

Take the escalator up! ^^^^^^^^
Take the escalator down! ~~~~~~~~~
It’s impossible to frown :o(
When you Commerce @ the Mall :o)

PULASKI BRIDGE

Every road that I walk with you
Takes me where we’re both going to

Let’s take the McGuinness bridge and head for the sun
On the way back, the Pulaski
We get to see the same sun seen by everyone
Even Roman Polanski!

I love you Matthew!

TEA LOUNGE

O Matthew what a name you came!
I saw you and I wasn’t the same!
How can I play?
I just want to talk to you.
How could I sing anything but:

Hallelujah
(Hallelu)
Hallelujah

Ooooooooooooooooooooooooh

Your gummy bear
(Welcome to)
Hips and lips
(the Tea Lounge)
Your quivering
(I’m Carl)
Fingertips
(what’s your name?)

I already asked this but what’s your name again? I’ll never ask again!

Matthew Shelton Price

Matthew Shelton Price

Ooooooooooh

DO YOU WANT ANOTHER CHANGE AT STAYING GOODBYE?

Do you want another chance at saying goodbye?
I didn’t try I only did
Hard to keep my feelings hid Matthew

I’m just a kid and so are you Matthew
Adjust the skid and sew .rar ewe math? ewwwww
I’m just a kid and so are you Matthew


Do you want another chance at breaking my heart?
I come apart like a house of cards
Like that threesome I ruined with a fart!

I’m temperamental sometimes
I’m sentimental all of the time

OooooooooooooooooooooooooOOooOooOooOooooohhhhoo

oooooooOOOooOOooooOOooOooOOoooOhhhhoOoooOohh
ooHhhhhooooooo

ooooooOOOOOOooOohhOooOOooOOoOoHhHHHHHooOoo

oooOoooohhOooooooOOOooooOOoOoooOOoooOOOOOOo

2 MANY MEN

I got too many men: they’re all over
I know that they’re all over someone too
But it don’t matter cause I’m all over you

I’ve spent too many mornings in mourning
Longing for something that I never knew
None of it matters when I’m all over you

THOMAS WAS A HOMELESS ROMANTIC

Thomas was a homeless romantic, his mullet flapping in the air. Hitching from the midwest to the Atlantic, he could swing it anywhere. Lake Calhoun to Union Square. Fucking on the concrete in the basement of the house where he was raised. Failing under Debbie Doing Dallas, though succeeding in some ways. I’ll top Tom one of these days. And as we lay in his mother’s bed, the sheets are clean for the first time. Is this Edina or Eden Prairie? This bed might as well be mine. Thomas was a homeless romantic, his mullet flapping in the air….

I AM UNTETHERED

I am untethered, my feathers unfettered
I’m free to move freely

The mournings behind me
The day is still breaking
When will I stop shaking and sweating like Jesus when he knew his future who, taking his thorns off for his profile picture, pretends that he’s had no trouble whatsoever. And puts on a smile just to keep it together. A neat little package to give to whoever, a new Judas who will promise him forever…

Newly unanchored I aim at the ocean go on with my plan
To master and conquer the thinking uncharted or known like the back of my hand
To buy or not buy what the street vendor’s selling
What tomorrow brings there’s no way of telling today

I am unsaddled and I saddled no one not even my man
Though my job still sucks I wish I was touring why do I even own a van?

Is it parked on the Thursday or the Monday spot?
Does it even matter three weeks now haven’t been caught.

I am untethered, Amen!
I am untethered, Amen!
I am untethered, Amen!
I am untethered, Amen!
