Randy Jones "Pulp" spans across many genres while, simultaneously, retaining an honest and coherent thread throughout the tracklist. These elements were obviously very key in order to keep the listener engaged, which it always manages to do. Favorite track: Loitering With Knives.

about

This is my debut album in which i incorporated jazz and math rock into my writing; I worked on this record for about a year and a half. Pulp is an overview of my early adult life and my personality. I wanted to personify my music to create an exaggerated musical version of myself.

Track Name: Friendship Fairy
boo ba boo ba boo ba boo ba
(dooduduloo doo da)

Friendship Fairy where are you
I need your help to get me through
this disaster A little faster
I don't know what else to do

Convoluted alter egos
you choose which ones i can see
Makes me crazy when you say baby
lets go get some sweet iced tea

Friendship Fairy where are you
(i know of a place)
I need your help to get me through
This disaster A little faster
(where you and i can go)
I don't know what else to do

Convoluted alter egos
(hey, i saw you yesterday)
you choose which ones i can see
Makes me crazy when you say baby
(Don't say another word)
lets go get some sweet iced tea
Track Name: Sam I Am
How did i come to be
the man i am today?
was it my friends who molded me?
or is it all in gods plan
But isn't that too simple
id like to think i'm more complex than
someones fabrication

Sam i am
I'm not alone when i say
I'm trying to become a better person
A more complete human
so i can get ahead in life
but isn't that too simple
i'd like to think there is an easier way to
get lots of money
but thats all right
hopefully soon i can get around without it
Track Name: Nimsay
How can i breath
The air is all i need
Tomorrow may never come
if i don't see you again
and hold you in my arms
In my arms
You will always be my first love
The memories that we have
will live on in my head forever
Track Name: Wake Up
Wake up
wake up
wake up and see the light today
wake up
you'll never know what you will find
release yourself from what is divine

Take away from this life
what you want to
what you want to

release your spite
dont hold it in anymore
dont hold it in anymore

despite your alignment
dont you deny it
dont you deny it

wake up
wake up and see the light tonight
Track Name: Song For a Friends Love
There’s a voice inside of you
That whispers all day
Listen to the only voice
That speaks the only truth

Ill be patient for you
Like our Jason Mraz song
For as long as it takes
So one day once more
We can brew again

The memories we made
From that one hot summer day
Are always roaming in our heads
Be my weakness & ill be your strength
I am crazy and you are sound
You and I balance the scale of love
For our chemistry was more pure than
Heisenberg’s blue methamphetamine

Broken promises
Making it seem like it never goes to plan
, but baby it was our destiny to
Come into each others path
You will always be my better half

Ill be patient for you
Like our Jason Mraz song
For as long as it takes
So one day once more
We can brew again.

The memories we made
From that one hot summer day
Are always roaming in our heads
Be my weakness & ill be your strength
I am crazy and you are sound
You and I balance the scale of love
For our chemistry was more pure than
Heisenberg’s blue methamphetamine

Our past is closed.
Our present shows.
Our future with a new chapter it holds

The memories we made
From that one hot summer day
Are always roaming in our heads
Be my weakness & ill be your strength
I am crazy and you are sound
You and I balance the scale of love
For our chemistry was more pure than
Heisenberg’s blue methamphetamine
Track Name: In The Eyes Of Mountains
In the eyes of mountains
we look so small

if i was born a different man
i wouldn't know
i wouldn't know

In the eyes of mountains
we look so small

If he were here i would not fear
i would not fear
i would not fear

In the eyes of anthills
we look so tall

throw me in the pits below
and i will crawl
i will crawl

In the eyes of anthills
we look so tall

If one day i did fly high
i'd search the skies
i'd search the skies
Track Name: Through Life
Spending so much time in the dark
only helps me appreciate the light
the vibrancy of the colors
illuminated by florescent bulbs

reds and blue of different hues
so much left that we can lose
life is always drifting away
but everyday, everyday more is created

the greenest grass always dies too fast
good things in life are just another phase
hold them tight for all of your days
for our days are ephemeral, and forever fleeting

the dirt will always be there waiting for me
i can't stay here forever
someday when i'm fed to the earth
i hope that i'm steady, i hope that i'm ready
Track Name: Uptight
His cross raised high
head above the sky
cigarette in one hand
strong drink in the other

Marital problems
doesn't know how to cope
ragged hair torn clothes
bit of cocaine on his nose

Ideal example
Of the man you don't want to end up
so man up and get your shit right
get a little more up tight

Wrong place wrong time
What is yours is mine
but keep all of your problems
don't lay it all on me

I don't care what you did
Who's to blame and who's to shame
Go tell it to your friends
I'll see you around the bend

Ideal example
Of the man you don't want to end up
so man up and get your shit right
get a little more up tight

Ideal example
Of the man you don't want to end up
so man up and get your shit right
get a little more up tight
Track Name: Loitering With Knives
I'm so tired
but i cant sleep
thoughts about things roaming around in my head
but don't worry
i won't sleep through class tomorrow

I wish all my problems
could be solved as easily
as loitering with knives
because the shit i deal with
i'm sick of it all

if i could go back
and change my mistakes
i would not change a lot

cause the things i've done
in my past make up who i am today
what is done is done who's to say i was wrong

so take a big step back
breath in the fresh air
just start over

some will say they can't leave it all behind
i say to them just loiter with knives
