You're Not Like Me Big business, small mind You can't even spare a dime Wrecking ball, takes out another friend of mine You're the monkey That's an insult to the monkey not to you it ain't You're not like me Something went wrong In your real fantasy You can't even see A thousand feet up In your real fantasy Stars and stripes You've got a lot to hide behind Your whole life You pissed on the ones That you're not like You're not like me Something went wrong In your real fantasy You can't even see A thousand feet up In your real fantasy

All She Said 02:54
All She Said She rolled in town, after the last sundown Only her memories, to her name If I could only see him again That's all she said Time tears us further apart Til it's nothing short of a game If I could only see him again That's all she said It's not all about you You broke the rule Opportunity knocks, but you're not home And that door never opens again If I could only see him again That's all she said All those songs that you're longing to hear They're crying for your tears If I could only see him again That's all she said It's not all about you You broke the rule

How Could We Have Ever Known? The stars come out, eventually How could we have ever known? But it's clear now Can't you see? Maybe a glimpse of why we couldn't be It had to happen Or else it couldn't be How could we have ever known? How somebody like you Ended up with me It couldn't have happened any other way How could we have ever known?

Divide & Conquer Don't you know about Divide and Conquer? Don't you know about Divide and Conquer? We could be insuperable, if we were inseparable But we're split into two Torn in fragments Turned against One another

Fine Line 03:16
Fine Line It's no different, it's the same as it ever was Most stay away from the hardest situations It's a fine line, with two sides to fall from But the length it's varied, it's the same as it ever was It's a fine line, you can't see it, It's a fine line, but you can...be on it Five miles tall and slippery as a bull frog It's a long line, the kind you can walk on The width can vary, but it's the same as it ever was Try to cross over, you leap through the velvet cloth It's a broke line, once you come across The result can vary, but it's the same as it ever was It's no different, it's the same as it ever was It's a fine line, you can't see it. It's a fine line, but you can...be on it

Words in my Head All your actions Are just words in my head, baby It's a reaction to the world around me, baby It's your life Do what you want to do I'll just be happy to dance with you All these wars Are just banker's wars All these wars are just banker's wars It's your life Do what you want to do I'll just be happy to dance with you

about

Mike & the Y-Tones - Words in my Head

A short debut record spanning early and recent compositions bundled in a 6 track effort that flows and goes and comes back around. We have politicians being politicians (You’re Not Like Me) and self-centeredness at a funeral (All She Said) as subjects along with final closure on a relationship that ended many years ago, set to rest by the existence of this very record (How Could We Have ever Known?).

The second half starts with a question, drawing attention to the divisiveness of our times and a call to reality (Divide & Conquer). The good news is that we are are not as divided as people say were are, which takes us to a song called "Fine Line” about how fragile our relationships are. The last song, the title track, Words in my Head, just a a damn riff I made up and closed my eyes and thought and thought and out comes the words:

All your actions are just words in my head baby
It’s a reaction to the world around me baby
