Track Name: Greetings!
My name is Michael Seyer
I was born in April 2nd, 1995
I am 21 years old and I live in Gardena, California
There’s really all there is to me
I’m a simple guy
I like music
I like recording,
I like my friends and family
I like my dog,
I like reading and poetry
I’m really not that interesting
I’m not important or significant
I’m not the center of the universe
And no one’s really the center of the universe
But there are a lot of people that are nobodies
That act like they’re somebody
And I’m definitely not abstained from that
Because I’m human
And humans are selfish
But I’d like to think
That I’m trying to make a conscious effort
To distance myself from that as far as possible
And If I keep doing that
I’ll improve as a person
Maybe improve the quality of life
But who knows whatever
Because I guess the first step to being somebody
Is knowing you’re nobody
And life is like that it’s like a lot of binaries
It’s kind of weird
Kind of like the first step to being intelligent
Is knowing you’re dumb
And you can’t quite possibly know everything
And to know true beauty
You have to realize there’s a lot of ugly in life.
Track Name: Ozymandia$$$
Once I met this boy
He counted where all his days went
Said he'd build his own Troy
I call him Ozymandias

Look on my works, ye mighty and despair
It's all dirt, I know that it’s not fair
How time pasts like travelers of an antique land and
There’s nothing left that stands

My dear but time and space
As I'm replaced, I cannot waste this life
Oh my dear, it's not too bad that life is so fast
But enough at that
Track Name: Making Chit Chat with a Stranger at a Dinner Party
So how's it going and how's your day
It's been a while since I've got your name
And I hope I'm not interrupting with your night
But I thought it be nice to talk eye to eye

But just instead,
Give me your time
Don't rush to bed,
Give me your line

So how you feeling, good I'm the same
And how's that weather, it always rains
And I hope I'm not interrupting with your night
But I thought it be nice to talk eye to eye

But just instead,
Give me your time
Don't rush to bed,
Give me your line
But just instead,
Give me your time
Don't rush to bed,
Give me your line
Track Name: The Most Beautiful Painting in the World
There's a mural that everyone knows
Most noted for being so beautiful
A pretty girl: tears on cheek
She don't talk but to everyone she speaks

But when I get there
The crowd blocks the artwork
I can't seem to see it
No one else can too

Have you seen the painting? No one else has.
Have you seen this painting? No one else has.

There's a painting that everyone claims to see
Says the sight is beauty and exists to be
It's nothing else, it's everything
And if this thing was a person it would surely sing

But when I push through
The painting is not there
The canvas is thin air
But they go on and stare

Have you seen the painting? No one else has.
Have you seen this painting? No one else has.

But when I see you, you're all I need
And when I'm with you, you're all that I see
In my mind, there's a painting of you
And there's no one else there to block the view
