Dystopia in the US

I live in a dystopia
I’m told lies everyday
by the people in charge

I don’t wanna be
in
the dystopia in the US
the dystopia in the US
the dystopia in the US

we’re better than this
or at least I thought
that’s what I was taught
this shame is going to leave a mark

no going back I’m afraid
they’re going to come for you and me
once they get done crushing the immigrants
gunna make us all live in a cage
it’s all the rage!

I don’t wanna be
in
the dystopia in the US
the dystopia in the US
the dystopia in the US

(bridge)
how did things change so fast
leaving all our hope in the past
now it’s stand and fight
or just be another dog in a cage

I don’t wanna be
in
the dystopia in the US
the dystopia in the US
the dystopia in the US

‘Stand Tall’ — #Lyrics To A Old School Hip Hop Song

The only reason why I even mention hip-hop is I was listening to Public Enemy as I wrote these lyrics. Trump is really beginning to piss me off.

Stand Tall

fight on your feet
fight on your feet
fight on your feet
stand tall

you don’t have to preach
innocents are dying on the beach
we’re living in 1984
that’s the score

fight on your feet
fight on your feet
fight on your feet
not live as a slave

but let me state
I won’t be the man’s slave
that has time come and gone
so given the choice by the orange man
between living on my knees
or dying on me feet
I know what my choice will be

I can tell you for sure
I know where I stand
that choice is easy as pie
I know how I want to die
join me

fight on your feet
fight on your feet
fight on your feet
not live as a slave

(bridge)
black, brown or gay
they want to keep us on our knees
but the only please I believe is
that one day it will be seen
that we fight with all our might
on our feet
when given the opportunity

stand tall
stand tall
stand tall
fight on your feet
fight on your feet
fight on your feet
not live as a slave

‘Leaving Manhattan’ — #Lyrics To A #Pop #Rock Song

Leaving Manhattan
Lyrics By Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
Please give credit if you produce or perform

Everyday is like the last
Think it’s going to be a gas
When you leave Manhattan at last
But we all know, you’re never going to go
No matter how many times you say in a row
That it’s your fate, don’t you know

Leaving Manhattan
No one is to blame
Leaving manhattan
Maybe one day you’ll see the island by plane
But we all know you’re never
Leaving manhattan
Leaving Manhattan
Leaving Manhattan

Just another whiff
Of your cigarette
And the people around you will complain
Tell you to hop that train
But you know it’s just all very lame

In the end you’ll be in the Midwest
Remembering what you lost
All the coffeeshops where you were the boss
But no one will remember in the end
How you never left Manhattan
No matter the cost

Leaving Manhattan
No one is to blame
Leaving manhattan
Maybe one day you’ll see the island by plane
But we all know you’re never
Leaving manhattan
Leaving Manhattan
Leaving Manhattan

(bridge)
You’ll stay forever that’s for sure
They’ll name a street after you
Or maybe a chair at your favorite bar
You won’t go far
Especially not midtown
That would leave a scar

But you’re ready for flight
If even for upstate
Anything at this point
To lift the weight

Leaving Manhattan
No one is to blame
Leaving manhattan
Maybe one day you’ll see the island by plane
But we all know you’re never
Leaving manhattan
Leaving Manhattan
Leaving Manhattan

Sometimes it’s jack and sometimes it’s black
But in the end we all know it’s whack
If you don’t love me in the end
All we got is

Jack Black
Jack Black
Jack Black
Be mine or let me leave
To force me to choose is too much
Believe me

Girls come and go
Some are hot and some are not
They can be good in bed or not
But all I know is I want you
If you leave it will be black as night
Jackshit is to much for me to bear

I’m ready for you to be mine one way or another
You’re going to to love me I know for sure
If you don’t then I am unaware
If the end of this will be all that fair

If you don’t love me in the end
All we got is

Jack Black
Jack Black
Jack Black
Be mine or let me leave
To force me to choose is too much
Believe me

(bridge)
No need for this bridge to exist
Jane or June is just as fine
But you’re not telling me the truth I can tell
Let me tell you what I know
You’re just as fun, just as fun, just as fun

When are we going to straighten things out
So I won’t have to scream and shout
All I need is just a taste of your love
To know if you’re going to be the one for me
Otherwise, I’ll just scream

‘Baby Making Music’ — #Lyrics To An Ode To Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper’s Romance

Baby Making Music
Lyrics By Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
Please give credit if you produce or perform

We all see you two
Doing your thing
In public with no shame
Now you both broke up
With your boo
What else are you going to do
But put on

Baby making music
Baby making music
Baby making music

I don’t care
If if it’s Marvin or Luthor or Prince
We all know what’s on your mind
You need to stop your frontin
And start with your groovin

What else are you going to do
But put on

Baby making music
Baby making music
Baby making music

(bridge)
We all know you will deny
That you both sigh with the other around
But we’re not dumb
You’re in love it’s true
So make a baby, won’t you

In the end a baby needs to be made
So we can all go back to your bread
And curse it as we always do

But for you not to link eyes and turn down the shades
Is to deny what we all know is true
You want to knock it in the night
With only the mood as a witness

‘Forward’ — #Lyrics To A Pop Rock Song

Forward
Lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
Please give credit if you produce or perform

The trick is to go forward
No matter what they say
Don’t blame anyone but yourself
If you don’t get laid, laid, laid

The girls will exclaim you’re just lame
But you and I know that’s not the same
As putting yourself out there for the fame

Forward is the only way
Forward is your direction
Forward
Forward
Forward
Any other way is backwards, my friend

If you’re not breathing then you’re dead
You’re going to have to face
That you’re in the red
Don’t believe what you’ve read
Girls like you’d that’s the truth
They will, at least, if you produce

You can’t edit a blank page
If you write what the people want
You might just get laid
But don’t blame me
If you choke
You’ve got the will within you to produce great art

Forward is the only way
Forward is your direction
Forward
Forward
Forward
Any other way is backwards, my friend
(Bridge)
No one will listen to you
If you just say oh shoot
Publish or perish I have to say
You want to get laid
I mean that as no shade

Now is time to do your job
Rob from the greats if that’s your thing
In the end you’ll be seen as great
Maybe finally get a date
With a girl you sees you a a catch
How long that will last
Is anyone’s guess




‘We’ll Be Free’ — #Lyrics To An R&B Song

This is just me riffing off Jhene Aiko beats. I sometimes like to decompress a little bit by writing lyrics, even though I know they will absolutely never be performed and the whole endeavor is completely useless and a waste of time.

We’ll Be Free
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

Nothing is as it seems
Or maybe that’s just me
Hoping to glean some meaning to it all
But I’m ready for us to fall to the top

There’s not one drop I’d give up
Between you and me

We’ll be free
We’ll be free
We’ll be free

I’m ready for one last shot
Maybe write a bop with you in mind
But you’ll just smile and laugh
Tell me I’m a gas

I believe you’re wrong
I believe you’re wrong

Just you wait and see
We’re all going to join as one
Once this long road ahead of us ends
When the journey is done

There’s not one drop I’d give up
Between you and me

We’ll be free
We’ll be free
We’ll be free

(bridge)
I’m not a slave
Your love is my liberty
When the chains of sadness
Tie me down on the ground
I look at you and know

We’ll be free
We’ll be free
We’ll be free

‘Score’ — #Lyrics To A Country-Pop Song

This definitely has a pop-country vibe to it. Too bad it’s impossible to break into the music business at my age, especially the way I’m doing it.
Oh well.

‘Score’
Lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
Please give credit if you produce or perform

I knew the score with a roar
When I met you at the high school door
You were my type I knew without a doubt
No one caught my eye the way you did

The score of our life flashes across my eyes
You’re always going to score the goal
When you I go for a roll in the hay
It was a score ago but it could have been today

I scored the game putting down
the scores of your fame
No one else to blame
for what happened next
We were necking in the backseat
before you took off your cleats

The score of our life flashes across my eyes
You’re always going to score the goal
When you I go for a roll in the hay
It was a score ago but it could have been today

(bridge)
No need to tell me what happens next
Love and heartbreak go hand in hand
But sometimes things work out
And you have to put your fears down

It was all a score ago I’m afraid
Now I look into your eyes one last time
Cause I know the score for sure
No one tells you how this game will end
But maybe that’s besides the point
When the score is tied

‘millennial burnout’ — #Lyrics To A Pop Rock Song

Just like trying to tell a story in verse meant to be sung.

millennial burnout
Lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

The sky’s the limit on my student loan debt
But don’t you fret I got a cat to pet
She’s a real cutie with a nice booty
Let’s me feed her avocado toast
While our clothes are at the laundromat
We’re too poor to buy a house
It’s all part of

millennial burnout
millennial burnout
millennial burnout
millennial burnout

We’re fighting a two front war
Living with our folks with a roar
People think we’re lazy
But I just think they’re hazy
‘Cause I work two jobs with a degree
Won’t someone take care of me

The jet set worry about their miles
While I’m rolling my eyes
‘Cuase I got not staycation on my horizon
I’m so broke I can’t get no help
That student loan debt is making me flip

millennial burnout
millennial burnout
millennial burnout
millennial burnout

(bridge)
X marks the spot
Out out it ain’t coming out
Maybe in the year 3000
I’ll have it all figured out
But for now
All I can say is
I got

millennial burnout
millennial burnout
millennial burnout
millennial burnout


‘Do You Got A Man’ — #Lyrics To A Dance Pop Song

This is just me letting off steam. No one cares. It’s supposed to be a pop rock song.

Do You Got A Man
Lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
Please give credit if you produce or perform

I see you walking near me
The way you strut is making it rough
Making it rough for me to ignore your stuff
So all I gotta say much to my dismay is

Do you got a man?

Do you got a man?
What’s his name?
What’s his game?
Do you got a man?
Let me ask you one question
Do you got a man?
Do you got a man?
Do you got a man?

Other girls got boys on their arms
I know if I chat them up a risk harm
But you’re a babe for all to see
So not knowing your status
Is really letting me have it

I promise if you’re free
I won’t say anything to make you flee
But I might ask you out
That’s for sure without a doubt

Do you got a man?

Do you got a man?
What’s his name?
What’s his game?
Do you got a man?
Let me ask you one question
Do you got a man?
Do you got a man?
Do you got a man?

(bridge)

Once you’re mine
It will be sublime
Other people will know
Don’t you know
So they don’t have to ask
That I’m your man

Do you got a man?
Let me ask you one question
Do you got a man?
Do you got a man?
Do you got a man?
