about

Aiight, so I been listening to a lotta shoegaze lately, and buying some cheap used guitars and also some used FX. And then the funk creeps in, and summa my signature misanthropy, too. Please play loud while drinking, just like I created it.

about

Vlayman Chicago, Illinois

Fat, bald and old - could I be anymo' rock-n-roll?
I play guitar, bass, some keys and percussion, and I try to vocalize. I write and record, and I do so obsessively. Also, I like martoonies, a lot, and I raise my kids, whom I also like, a lot.
Look for me at the TapeOp and TalkBass forums, where I'm vvv, or in various bars in the Loop.

Track Name: Saints Have a Past
Saints Have a Past
c. '17 Vlayman

The devil speaks so sweet
He'll have you today
He knows how to take you completely-54
The devil knows just what to say

Saints have a past
But sinners have a future

Your demon thinks you are sweet
He's gonna bring be you on home
Your demon drinks and can't be defeated
He'll never leave you alone

My ghost haunts me real sweet
I know she wants to be you
My ghost just can't compete
No matter what she do

Track Name: Certain Person
Certain Person
c. '17 Vlayman

Every small town I ever been to seems to have the same truth,
Small town boys,
Small town girls
Small town people trying to figure where they belong in the world.

Every dirty city I ever been to seems to have the same truth,
Dirty city boys,
Dirty city girls
Dirty city people trying to figure where they belong in the world.

(kick)
The only Person seems certain is you
The only Person completely certain seems to be you 2x

Solo

Everyone I ever known gets through life just the same, it's true,
with some pain,
with some shame,
All the beautiful people trying to figure where they belong in the world don't know what to do.

Track Name: Picture on the Wall (w Silversmith)
Picture on the Wall w Silvie
c. '16 Vlayman

She looks just a little bit like you
And I swear that wasn't intentional
You knowed I always used to be true
It's just our love weren't all that conventional

Spittin' image don't really do 'er justice
It ain't the footage what tells the tale
Doya amember when it were just us?
I do not know, how to explain the fail

Many mens, would say I made some kinda mistake
Lookin' at her, they would not see anything of you
But when she smiles I always do a double-take
And I ain't lie, again, I'm-a tellin' my troof

CH Picture on the wall says it all
Picture on the wall It says everthing
says it all
To me

Dorine Grey sits on the walls of my memory
I see you there, you lost it all
My new baby comes, and stays, and makes a new man of me
I ain't worried, no, about the fall

CH

So you wanna say, I'm a phony that way
It ain't you I'm makin' love to in the night
But it don't pay, to do what others say
And I feel like I'm doin' all right

CH x2

Track Name: Sometimes a Man
Sometimes a Man
c. '17 Vlayman

I didn't that you'd heard me,
I didn't think that you'd hurt me, no,
I didn't think or I'd never said those things at all,
I didn't think that you'd seen me,
I didn't think that you'd leave me, no,
I didn't think that youd' think I think those things at all.

Sometimes a man thinks he's gotta put it on,
Make it look like he's in control,
But that ain't me, really that ain't me, baby,
And I think that I thought that you'd know.

I was trying to get a advantage,
make a little money for you and me, yeah,
I thought I had 'em at a disadvantage,
We gotta good thing they can't see it,
I didn't that you'd heard me,
I didn't think that you'd hurt me, no,
I didn't think or I'd never said those things at all.

Sometimes a man thinks he's gotta put it on,
Make it look like he's in control,
But that ain't me, really that ain't me, baby,
And I think I thought that you'd know.

You always been the best thing in my life,
You always been my best thing since we met,
You gotta gimme, gimme a little break here,
You gottta gimme to get (what you want),
I didn't think that you'd seen me,
I didn't think that you'd leave me,
I didn't think that youd' think I think those things at all.

Sometimes a man thinks he's gotta put it on
Make it look like he's in control,
But that ain't me, really that ain't me, baby,
And I think I thought that you'd know.

Wishin' You Would
c. '16 Vlayman

Ever'body feels some uncertainty
It comes with the territory
It's that o' insecurity
Makes you afraid of me, ain't no reason to be

CH:
You been sittin' there wonderin',
if you should
And I been sittin' here wishin',
wishin you would

You ain't the only one feelin' yerself sweat
And we ain't even begun yet
I bet you kinda wish we was already done
And you coud get to say,, "Take me home, I had fun"

CH

RAP double-time:
Ever'body feels some insecurity
Ever'body feels some inferiority
It's that demon uncertaintainty
Makes you so afraid of me
You ain't the only one feelin' yerself sweat
We could have alotta fun we just ain't begun yet
You ain't never gonna wanna be completely done
We gonna make so much good lovin', lovin', lovin'
Ain't got be askeered, is what I'm tellin' you
Tho' I confess, I'm a li'l askeered, too
But we arrived with mutual expectations
Our fascination's gonna turn to appreciation

Ain't often easy to
explain the crimes they do
Some times they do 'em, yeah
without thinking things thru

Gotta have a good reason
For doin' treason

Say you gotta woman
But she don't like that you do
And then mebbe she does yer best friend
without thinking things thru

Mebbe you gotta real need
to stop how they rule you
So you join the resistance man
I hope ya thought things thru

Ain't often easy to
explain the crimes we do
Some times we do 'em, yeah
without thinking things thru

Track Name: To Think
To Think
c. '17 Vlayman

There is things what make you upset
You like to say they throw ya off yer feed
You don't really show it it too much, baby
Until yer eyes begin to bleed

And I know there's stuff tho' I can't say what
Could probably make you scream
I hear you from yer bedroom, baby
Callin' out to me in yer dreams

I know not, what to think
I do it all the time

Imagination is a living thing
And it's also a reason to live
With out imagining you cannot sing
And that ain't no way to live

I know not, what to think
I do it all the time


With out imagining you cannot sing
And that ain't no way to live

I know not what to think
I do it all the time

I know what not to think
I do it all night

I know not what to think
I know what not to think

This is how one feels when they get next to you 2x
I don't what to do

I don't feel very good at all
I don't really feel much like me
I don't feel very good at all
And I really don't wanna fall 2x
I don't wanna fall

This is how one looks when they get close to you 2x
I don't what to do

This is how one cries when they get next to you
This is how one dies when they get next to you
You know it's true

c. '16 Vlayman

Standing in the shadows of lust
I been shakin' t'il I rattle and cuss
Standin' in the shadows of love
I'm gonna do what I must

Hey, hey

Lookin' at ya through half closed eyes, yeah
You make me think about how I wanna die

CH: Hey, hey, what is it about younger women
Puts me in mind of what I ain't been givi n' (#2 gettin')
Ain't just a line that I'm singin',
about my loneliness?

Smellin' yer tears, tastin' yer hair
What doya fear? Why can't ya stay?
Why can't ya stay?
