Max Meyer - Red Rax Michael Guy Bowman's new album is catchy as fuck. I don't think there's any weak song on the album. The whole thing is a delight to listen to, and I can't help myself from singing along and just getting out of my seat for pretty much every song. I highly recommend purchasing or at least giving it a listen through. Favorite track: Mothership.

Why does this feeling always come to me Like there’s some place that I’m supposed to be Oh hold me closer, I don’t want to go Look in my eyes and you will know I know This is as good as it gets Oh don’t you know this is as good as it gets I feel like I’m the greatest man in the world You are my favorite girl This is as good as it gets This is as good as it gets Oh don’t you know this is as good as it gets Nobody else in all the whole human race Could know the look on your face This is as good as it gets Why does it hit me when I least suspect? My mouth is running but the mood’s direct Oh let me linger, I’m a lonely soul Just take my hand and I will take control Good as it gets Oh don’t you know this is as good as it gets I feel like I’m the greatest man in the world You are my favorite girl This is as good as it gets This is as good as it gets Oh don’t you know this is as good as it gets Nobody else in all the whole human race Could know the look on your face This is as good as it gets Good as it gets Oh don’t you know this is as good as it gets I feel like I’m the greatest man in the world You are my favorite girl This is as good as it gets This is as good as it gets Oh don’t you know this is as good as it gets Nobody else in all the whole human race Could know the look on your face This is as good as it gets Just when I think I should be cooling my jets This is as good as it gets This is as good as it gets Whoa-oa-oa My head is racing ‘cause it’s not over yet This is as good as it gets This is as good as it gets gets gets You bat your amber eyes And now I know why This is as good as it good as it good as it gets Why do we leave each other in the night We walk away just when the mood is right Oh wait for me, you know I need you now Show me your heart and I will show you how

Someday when you leave your mother’s Would you come and stay with me? There’s no action in the suburbs I know who you want to be We want to be like like like angels We want to be like like like angels We want to be like like like angels With our feet way up in the clouds We want to be like like like angels We want to be like like like angels We want to be like like like angels And we won’t even touch the ground I’ve been waiting in the city For a friend to show around I know where the sights are pretty Come with me and paint the town We want to be like like like angels We want to be like like like angels We want to be like like like angels With our feet way up in the clouds We want to be like like like angels We want to be like like like angels We want to be like like like angels And we won’t even touch the ground Do you feel the rush of feathers When we’re going out together We’re the ones who walk beside you We’re the angels here to guide you If you wanna join us say so Pretty soon you’ll have your halo Singing in the choir at Heaven’s gate All the rooms are full of strangers All you want is everything You’ll go through so many changes Someday soon you’ll spread your wings We want to be like like like angels We want to be like like like angels We want to be like like like angels With our feet way up in the clouds We want to be like like like angels We want to be like like like angels We want to be like like like angels And we won’t even touch the ground

Unstoppable 05:03
I'm waking up wired Shake with desire Ready to roll, whoa-oh I'm hitting the highway Doing it my way Taking control, whoa-oh I'm full of myself Couldn't be helped I fit the mold, whoa-oh I know what I feel I am a real Sight to behold Cuz I'm never gonna run Never gonna hide I'm telling everyone Take a step aside I've waited long enough Paid a lot of dues I'm never giving up Never gonna lose Never gonna lose, never gonna lose Never gonna lose, never gonna lose Never gonna lose, never gonna lose I don't know why or how I'm just unstoppable now I'm gone from the starter I'm racing harder I'm gonna win, whoa-oh I'm lapping the legends Stealing attention Raking it in, whoa-oh I'm chasing the dream Making it seem Easy to do, whoa-oh I'm knocking on wood Feels so good I'm breaking through And I'm never gonna stop Never gonna stall Never see me drop Never see me fall I'm never gonna make Another lame excuse I'm never gonna break Never gonna lose Never gonna lose, never gonna lose Never gonna lose, never gonna lose Never gonna lose, never gonna lose I don't know why or how I'm just unstoppable now Relight the fire of a faded era You're gonna watch me beat the odds I won't be shaped by the things that scare us I'm gonna rise like a brand new god I'm gonna walk across the water Shout out my name from the mountaintops I'm gonna dance with the devil's daughter I'll show the world that I can't be stopped I wanna break down every border Shake off the shackles of my cage I'm gonna change the Earthly order Shine in the light of a golden age I'll show the world just what I'm made of Make them a deal they can't refuse I'll go beyond the ones who gave up I know I'm never gonna lose Never gonna lose, never gonna lose Never gonna lose, never gonna lose Never gonna lose, never gonna lose I don't know why or how I'm just unstoppable now

I used to think we were close, I used to think we were tight Just when I needed you most, you made me feel alright You told me I was the best, you told me I made you laugh And now I’ve got to confess, you’ve got me torn up in half Cause when I gave you a shot, you told me you’d rather not I don’t know what I did wrong, I thought we had something good We both were getting along, maybe I misunderstood Maybe you’re just being sweet, maybe you do this a lot Talk up the people you meet, give them the best that you got Just like it’s nothing at all, still I’m the one that you call Why do you play with my heart? You know I’m falling apart One minute I’m all you want, the next you’re already gone Why do you play with my soul? You know I’m losing control If you would just stay with me, I’d give you all that you need You’ve had me going for months, you’ve had me all in my head Asking what I should have done, if it was something I said Was I too eager to love? Should I have just took it slow? If I was patient enough, would our relationship grow? Would I still stand half a chance, or do you have other plans? I ought to just take a “no” and look for somebody new I’ve got a lifetime to go, I shouldn’t cry over you But now it’s so hard to tell if my connections are real Have I been foolin’ myself, I haven’t known how to feel Since I thought you were the one, oh baby what have you done? Why do you play with my heart? You know I’m falling apart One minute I’m all you want, the next you’re already gone Why do you play with my soul? You know I’m losing control If you would just stay with me, I’d give you all that you need I thought the signals were right, now I don’t know what they mean I’m always stuck at the light, can’t tell the red from the green Have you been changing your mind? Has it been up in the air? Or am I simply too blind to see you don’t even care? I know I’m not being fair, you didn’t mean to do wrong I should get out of your hair, I should be moving along We ought to just let it be, so why are you calling me? Why do you play with my heart? You know I’m falling apart One minute I’m all you want, the next you’re already gone Why do you play with my soul? You know I’m losing control If you would just stay with me, I’d give you all that you need Why do you play with my heart? You know I’m falling apart One minute I’m all you want, the next you’re already gone Why do you play with my soul? You know I’m losing control If you would just stay with me, I’d give you all that you need

My baby my Where are you tonight Don’t you know I need your love I been down pretty bad And what a week I had And the whole year has been rough But if you could be here It would all disappear So won't you please come around Because I feel so down And I’m calling your name 'Cause the days are all the same And the nights do me no good And the people that I know Got me feeling pretty low And I’m so misunderstood But with you here tonight It would feel alright So won’t you bring me your love 'Cause I can’t get enough No I can’t I can’t I can’t I can’t No I can’t get enough of you I can’t I can’t I can’t I can’t No I can’t get enough of you Of the kiss on your lips Of the shake in your hips Of your sweet sweet love No I can’t get enough Hey baby hey Are you on the way 'Cause I don’t know what to do My mind is a mess And my life is too I guess And I’ve never been so blue But it all goes away When you come here to stay And my head’s so clear Every time that you’re here And my heart’s goin’ fast 'Cause you’re coming home at last To the one who wants you most And with you as my guest You’ll be bringing out the best In me your cordial host So won't you come here now 'Cause I don't know how To go on without your love 'Cause I can't get enough No I can’t I can’t I can’t I can’t No I can’t get enough of you I can’t I can’t I can’t I can’t No i can’t get enough of you Of the kiss on your lips Of the shake in your hips Of your sweet sweet love No I can’t get enough No I can’t get enough No I can’t I can’t I can’t I can’t No I can’t get enough of you I can’t I can’t I can’t I can’t No I can’t get enough of you Of the kiss on your lips Of the shake in your hips Of your sweet sweet love No I can’t get enough

Faking It 03:10
I broke the golden rule again I lost a lover and a friend Just when I thought I’d got to know you But when I see it in rewind And think of all we left behind There was no other way to show you ‘Cause I am no believer And you don’t need me either And this is such a breather Finally being real ‘Cause it feels like No one ever gets the things they want No one ever wants the things they have So why do we keep faking it so bad? And when I think of what went wrong You know I’m glad that you are gone I got so tired of being patient I opened up my beating heart And nearly tore myself apart To fit in all your expectations But I am done pretending I’m not your happy ending I can’t go on defending All the time you steal ‘Cause it feels like No one ever gets the things they want No one ever wants the things they have So why do we keep faking it so bad? ‘Cause it feels like No one ever gets the things they want No one ever wants the things they have My heart you just keep breaking it Shouldn’t be as bad as you’re making it So why do we keep faking it so bad?

Have you noticed lately that you and I can do no wrong? That every hurdle in the road that ever slowed you down is gone? Put the past behind you, put the pieces into place Wipe the precious little pouting off the picture of your face Don't you feel lucky when you look in the mirror And you see me by your side? Don't you feel lucky when the moment is right? Oh yeah. Don't you feel lucky with your head on my shoulder When you're here between my arms? You should feel lucky, 'cause I'm your lucky charm. I'm your four-leaf clover, I'm the wind across the dice I'm the candles on the cake and you can cut yourself a slice Make your wish unto me, for now it can be told You won the lottery of livin' and I'm givin' you the gold Don't you feel lucky when I'm pulling you closer In the middle of the night? Don't you feel lucky when I’m holding you tight? Oh yeah. Don't you feel lucky when you look in my eyes And know I'll never do you harm? You should feel lucky, 'cause I'm your lucky charm. Don't you feel like you've turned around? Lookin' up instead of falling down I believe in you, and I've been leaving you feeling high, high You can let the rabbit have its leg Leave the horseshoe hangin' round the peg I'm a charmer for your karma and your lovin' is why, why Put me in your pocket, and you'll never be the same 'Cuz every odd and every even's lining up to spell your name Lay the cards before you, watch the wheel of fortune turn And you can bet I'll get you back just like a jackpot-sized return Don't you feel lucky when you wake in the morning With the one you're dreaming of? Don't you feel lucky falling in love? Oh yeah. Don't you feel lucky when there's no one but us To hear the six o'clock alarm? You should feel lucky, 'cuz I'm your lucky charm.

I was born in the woods I was raised pretty good By a pack of hyenas I was free in the soul I was more animal than man I was good on my own I was almost fully grown When the zookeepers seen us Now i know you never knew So i gotta tell you who i am Way back, i was hunting with my teeth Way back, with the jungle floor beneath Way back, i was crawlin' on my paws Way back, must've broke a lot of laws I was trapped in a bag I was sent to a lab In the back of a college I was shaved of my hair Given clothes i could wear for free I was told how to talk How to stand when i walk Make displays of my knowledge But the fun's worn away 'Cuz they don't like to play like me Take me back, to the sweat and the sun Take me back, to the dirt and the dung Take me back, to the tongues and the tails Take me back, to the slime and the scales I'm going back to my roots Gonna chew on the fruits I'm moving back to the jungle I'm gonna grow out my hair Learn to growl like a bear I'm moving back to the jungle I'm gonna roll in the dirt Dig a hole 'til it hurts I'm moving back to the jungle I'm gonna swing from the vines Show the world that it's mine I'm moving back to the jungle Where i'm gonna eat bugs When you see me again I'll be down in the den With the tigers and lions I will show you around We will go up and down the trees Oh the jungle and i Will explain you the cycle Of livin' and dyin' Leave your house, take a right 'Cuz it's such a crazy sight to see I'm going back, gonna crawl down the street I'm going back, on my hands and my feet I'm going back, i can't pretend anymore I'm going back, i'll leave my clothes on the floor There is so much to do In the woods, you will use All five of your senses You will taste through your toes See the world through your nose in 3d There's a part of your brain That just can’t contain ‘Cuz there's cracks in the fences Won’t you start looking through See the animal you can be Come back, to your mother the earth Come back, to the instinct of birth Come back, leave your worries behind Come back, to your reptile mind Come back, to the call of the wild Come back, like a prodigal child Come back, 'cause it's not very far Come back, to the creature you are I am done with the rules Wanna run with the wolves I'm moving back to the jungle I'm gonna howl at the moon Use a stick for a spoon I'm moving back to the jungle I wanna bathe in the mud Make a monkey be my bud I'm moving back to the jungle I'm gonna love, gonna fight Stay up every single night I'm moving back to the jungle Where i'm gonna eat wood I am leaving tonight Wanna hunt, wanna bite I'm moving back to the jungle I wanna bark like a dog Gonna sleep in a log I'm moving back to the jungle I'm gonna swim in the lake Slither round with the snakes I'm moving back to the jungle I was born to be free So you know where i will be I'm moving back to the jungle Where i'm gonna eat dirt

Existential dread Gets into your head Gets into your bed with you Awful little thoughts Tie you up in knots Everybody's got a few Endless are the nights Filling you with frights 'Til you turn the lights back on Reoccurring pains Driving you insane You're here but yet your brain is gone When you turn around There's nothing to be found There's nothing pulling down on you Nothing like a ghost The horror show you host That leaves your mind the most to do If I shook you now Would it get you out Or would you only shout at me? Are you in a dream Or somewhere in between? It's never what it seems to be And you know that there's no one there But you still get scared sometimes And you know that it's in your mind Push it right back through the blinds Cotton are the sheets Tugging at your feet And you are caught in something else I can never love Anyone enough To drag them back from out of hell Take another breath You'll scare yourself to death There's no one here but you and I Try and take control 'Cause you're the only soul That fits the hole your head's inside No one else can know The places that you go When you're going down and down (down and down) Words cannot explain You're in a hurricane That keeps you going round and round (round and round) I prefer the day If we both could stay If the sun could rise again We'd never know the fear That always finds us here When the day is at an end And you know that there's no one there But you still get scared sometimes (sometimes, sometimes) And you know that it's in your mind Push it right back through the blinds (push it through the blinds) And you know that there's no one there But you still get scared sometimes (sometimes, sometimes) And you know that it's in your mind Push it right back through the blinds

about

Hello, aliens from the future. This is an album of music written and produced by me, Michael Guy Bowman. People recognized me as a hero and a king in my lifetime. By now, civilization has certainly perished. If there are any surviving humans, they're probably mutated beyond recognition and a real bummer to hang with. If nothing else remains, gaze upon this artifact for a little taste of what life was like in another time when things were actually pretty cool.
