Wake up falling down Yr head's still in a cloud Check the clock running late Straighten up it's a big debate Nothing to lose something to prove Different drummer with familiar groove What is truth? What's delay? Push it off in another way Someday could be today Someday could be today Keep up it's a scene Illusion of a shiny sea It's life on demand Yr always yr biggest fan Catching up catching waves Take comfort in your cage What's the truth? What's the lie? Don't give the reason why Someday could be today Someday could be today

Hey man, you're the life of the party! Think you're so big with all your words I see it must be a form of rejection It's the one that I never heard Well, I just want to... I just want to say You're a brilliant jerk You got stories from your United Nations All your trips in your limosine I think maybe you got preoccupation Cause the words you use are all obscene Well, I just want to... I just want to say You're a brilliant jerk All the girls here they wanna be with you! All the men they wanna be you! Well, I just want to... I just want to say You're a brilliant jerk You got the names in your phone of the important people All the men in your life They give you things no one else can follow Man, I hope you buy yourself a wife! Well, I just want to... I just want to say You're a brilliant jerk Sometimes yr preferred pilot just isn't available! Sometimes yr car just doesn't arrive when you want it to!

He got an itchy trigger finger He thinkin he Dirk Diggler Won't be ignored See, that's what he came for Make something out of nothing A fake out repercussion Celebrates the trash But he's pissing just for cash... just for cash... Run from the past Tied up for last Such subtle dedication Take a torch to a nation Gonna burn it all down and watch em all drown Just like a movie! So steady as she goes Yea we keep our eyes closed Never had a doubt they'll sort it all out When the heavens rain down Run from the past Tied up for last

Lashes 03:36
Folded lines surround Like a spiral bound Lives in infinite Universe within No maps can navigate Nothing to fill this space To initiate This cerebral fate Language all our own Space invaded drone No maps can navigate Nothing to fill this space

Well I turned up looking for the show down Turned into a macho bro down Looked at my watch says it's 9 o'clock Got another drink 'cause we never stop Keep on feeling caffeination Just another freak sensation Live for now or live for later Looking like Luke but I'm feeling like Vader Took another leaf from the giving tree Just don't mess with the symmetry Well Keep on feeling caffeination Just another freak sensation

Baby the world's on fire and you're talking 'bout your hair Shiny and twisted spread out everywhere Baby the world's on fire and I do believe it's true As we softly reject it between me and you Nobody tells you maybe it's time to go home Secrets to sell in a late night foggy world Slowly rejected slightly neglected stuff The whole world is listening they never can get enough Baby the world's on fire and you're talking 'bout your hair Shiny and twisted spread out everywhere Baby the world's on fire and I do believe it's true As we softly reject it between me and you Teasing yr selfie a filter of false confidence Pretending yr wealthy bringing in all this stuff Nobody tells you maybe it's time to hang up Media sells you ya never can get enough Baby the world's on fire... Baby the world's on fire...

Danger Zones 03:38
Just let the freak flag fly Tomorrow we may die There was a chance to save the day But it's all gone away This time is not our own We live in danger zones Take another chance Rely on circumstance Distracted all the time, it seems Even in our dreams... in our dreams... This time is not our own We live in danger zones Take a look outside Nowhere left to run and hide
8.
Plenty 04:04
I got you right between the eyes There is a look with no disguise There is a whiter shade of pale Take a deep breath but don't exhale Take me and know there's plenty I walked you home and said goodnight Yr hair and clothes are outta sight I say your name it sounds like spring This ain't some Cinderella thing Take me and know there's plenty If something's wrong do best to mend I'm gonna be that kind of friend Not like a bug won't crawl around Won't tie you up I won't bring you down (unless that's what you want...) Take me and know there's plenty
9.
May I remind you it's a drive thru? Complication... situation. Another virtue 'cause somebody hurt you? That's not a reason for the treason So step in focus a hocus pocus Different combos yea to do the mambo Make yr decision through yr derision. So take a long look, baby, tell me do you like what you see? Come on and tell me Be the hero of the menu Take a short risk... you get the big fish Order by number before you slumber So take a long look, baby, tell me do you like what you see? Come on and tell me

Paper millionaire You've got enough to share Instead you sit and stare Into your pipe dream screen Wondering what it all means Paper Millionaire Maybe it isn't fair Sometimes you don't seem pleased Like there's a missing need Though we're all at your knees Paper Millionaire Thinks it's a noble goal To have complete control Like it's conceivable Yet unbelievable Paper Millionaire Just don't look over there The price is never free with your technology and most will never be a Paper Millionaire Maybe you'd lend a hand? Here comes catastrophe But it'd be blasphemy To help the world believe

Feeling some feelings you wouldn't believe! Got yr number tattooed on my sleeve Dotting my 'i's Crossing my 't's Doing that thing Dancing with me Good advice it's hard to heed Take from those that have and give to those in need Feeling some feelings you wouldn't believe! Got yr number tattooed on my sleeve Dotting my 'i's Crossing them 't's Got yr number tattooed on my sleeve Got yr number tattooed on my sleeve Got yr number tattooed on my sleeve Yea.

She's stealing the lines, stealing the lines Stealing the lines from her face again She's running the lies, running the lives Running the lies keeping pace Oooo so ready, yea Oooo rock steady, yea He's dreaming in signs, dreaming in signs Speaking the language of fate again They're taking the time, taking the time Taking the time on the dime again Keep it inside, keep it inside Showing the teeth all over again Oooo so ready, yea Oooo rock steady, yea She's stealing the lines, stealing the lines Stealing the lines from her face again She's running the lines, running the lives Running the lies keeping pace Oooo so ready, yea Oooo rock steady, yea

Baby, yr gonna get a participation award for all the hard work you did here today Baby, you won't regret Just what you came for and you can smile while yr walking away... smile while yr walking away Saving all my tears for another day when love has gone away It's a tiny little bit between love and hate and nothing's left to say On my knees, guarantees Take a pencil out The 50 seas if you please time to think about ... all the days you wasted ... all the ways you faked it ... all those lies you said Here's yr award for everything you are here's yr award for everything you are a shiny little star in someone else's bar keep in a jar... a little jar ... all the days you wasted ... all the ways you faked it ... all those lies you said

Ticking Away 03:10
Making plans full of your indecision Everyone has their own self derision Keep your pride as you dodge every issue Pardon me if I don't share a tissue Left alone you are prone to your vices Another part of 'identity crisis' The blackest hole that can't let any light in The surest waste but you just keep on fighting Time and I are not on your side Tick tick tick ticking away now Tick tick tick ticking away Taking turns with your latest sensation Every day is another vacation Catching waves or the newest adventure So much 'yes' that you can't even censor Spilling out everyone's out to get you The target's always on you in your worldview Sadly gone is my span of attention Catch another relief from this tension Time and I are not on your side Tick tick tick ticking away now Tick tick tick ticking away

She's my cocaine I feel her in my veins. I take as much as I can to alleviate this pain She’s a big deal, my happy meal that special prize between her thighs, a warmth that I can feel... she’s my cocaine! She’s my caffeine I take it long and lean! Her buzz is always hyping up the scene She’s like the sun, lighting everyone, caz her shadow’s tall, her head is small and her body’s built for fun! She’s my caffeine! She’s my saline! She comes moist and clean I may be seasoned but with her I am so green Cut down to size, her staring eyes I’m like a junkie for her denim tight blue thighs! She’s my saline! She’s my propane! The engine of this train She burns so hot we can only travel when it rain Got me on fire, turn me into a cryer But that girl is mine, she is so fine no one else can call me sire

It was a double slit experiment and everybody knows what that means easily seen observations with classic bit oscillations One could plainly see this technology is all about Superposition... superposition, baby, yea Superposition... superposition, baby, yea She hid her face in embarrassment The equation of the impact hadn't measured yet A diffraction of all probability Two states seeking out capability One could plainly see this technology is all about Superposition... superposition, baby, yea Superposition... superposition, baby, yea

Hey mom I think you'd like this song Things you said stuck in my head Keep on I know you'd get along with this girl (she rocks my world) So long not feeling very calm The world's all going wrong Are you listening somewhere? Are you listening somewhere? Hey mom what's it like in the beyond? Days already gone but I carry on There's a finger on the bomb It's just Vietnam or whatever Mom first class is long gone Gonna pack my bags and fly Are listening somewhere?

Bunny 03:55
Bunny Why you acting funny? Here's the situation I need you for vacation Simple Can't you be more simple? Everything's a wrinkle Yr acting Rip Van Wrinkle Sooner Can't you get well sooner? Yr not another victim This disposable system Vicious and you're looking so delicious Why do you need assistance? You offer all resistance Aw Bunny I love you so You need a little get up and go Yea Bunny!

Ex Coozie 02:50
Days turn into numbers and a life just passes by Break the golden slumbers with the blink of a weary eye No one's in danger in the silence of the night I'm my worst stranger like a quiet satellite So ex coozie Will you tumble for me? Can I take you with me when I go? Complicated relations Everything will work out fine Rely on the spirits to get ya through the night Well, ex coozie Will you tumble for me? Can I take you with me when I go?
21.
Heaven falling over me the forest and the trees at 99º Heaven shines so bright today just a holiday excuse to celebrate Everything's right now Everything's right now Sometimes the words so hard to find daily bump and grind feeling so behind Guilty of another crime different from last time but still the same Everything's right now Everything's right now (Jerry Cantrell solo)
22.
This is the last song ever written No more time to explore the conditions Dear mother kept in a choke hold Carving out the pieces they sold This is the last song every right turned every wrong This is the last song This world survives after we are gone Too late to see past the mirror all the signs they couldn't have been clearer Every chance for reciprocity Just adding more toxicity This is the last song every right turned every wrong This is the last song This world survives after we are gone Dear world I'm sorry we forgot Sustaining any after thought Focus on the frivolous One day you'll have forgiven us This is the last song every right turned every wrong This is the last song This world survives after we are gone

I couldn't make her mine I couldn't find a way she had 1000 lies It was a Saturday No matter how I tried Her eyes still look away I couldn't break inside a fucked up price to pay I couldn't make her mine like I wasn't there I looked 1000 times She didn't have a care No matter how I tried Her eyes still look away I couldn't break inside a fucked up price to pay I couldn't make her mine I couldn't find a way she had 1000 lines It was a Saturday No matter how I tried Her eyes still look away I couldn't break inside a fucked up price to pay

about

Recorded at Tiny Telephone SF, Greg Hoy & The Boys double LP took close to a year to complete with 22 of the 30 rock pop gems making it to wax and digital output.

The Boys are currently drummer Jason Slota (John Vanderslice, Thao & The Get Down Stay Down), producer Jacob Winik (Magnetic Fields, Bells Atlas, JV), Strings by Tony Rogers (Jennifer Jackson, Waterloo Trio), Organist Paul Labrise, and guest horns by DJ Purple.

About the last GH&TheBs album 'Fomo Yolo Ono', Divide & Conquor wrote 'FOMO YOLO ONO is a shining example of why rock and roll will never die, filled with catchy riffs and great instrumentation as well as lyrics that document the struggles of the common man.' And Delusions of Adequacy says 'Everything flows; his albums never sound like a disjointed collection of tracks'.

Celebrating his 15th year of 'official' recording output, Greg's releases this year include the solo, acoustic LP 'The Palmist' in January, work on the mysterious Dos Tacos Amigos EP, and a four song jam with his louder band The Royal Panics in July. — Loretta Sweet

Thanks to Jason Slota for being Jason Slota, Jacob, all the folks that performed on this endeavor, the sometimes live 'Boys' (Carmen King, Brandon Essex, Shawn Miller, Brad Stark, Harris Pittman, David E. Richman), The Royal Panics (Mark and Dennis), Bottom of The Hill, Hotel Utah, Bender's, Sea Jay at Winters (Sonora AND Pacifica), All Day Breakfast (the band), Sean Murphy, Kristen Dallara, Angus/Lily, Jason Hemerka, the family, all the folks that have been in the goofy videos, and everyone else that's been so supportive in the past years.

Dedicated to my Mom, the real artist in this family, and instilled in me the drive to create. My dad was nice about it, too (sorry I quit sports to be in the high school musical).
