about

Soapbox Soliloquy St. Petersburg, Florida

Soapbox Soliloquy is just that, a soliloquy atop a soapbox. Through the use of highly intricate and nauseatingly advanced cloning technology from the planet Argelius II and magic learned from a royal flush of mystics, Jasmine is able to control the space time continuum for long enough to record a song or two once every lunar cycle. ... more

Track Name: My Sweet Celador
Here I'm faced at this cellar door
just as so many have before
contemplating the unsure
of what life means and what it's worth
but I'm not sure if I care anymore

Here I lay with my Celador
just as so many have been before
contemplating the unsure
of what love means and what it's worth
but I'm not sure if I care anymore

I don't care anymore
Track Name: Bayside
He watched the stars cast their shadows
on the moving tide
dancing below the fickle feet
of luminescent moonlight

He felt the breeze come right down
and kiss him on the left cheek
with not too much distance
from his heart to where the sand meets

He taste the salt of the earth
upon his once loving lips
as he slowly captured
the sailing stream of his own consciousness

There is no gain
where nothing's lost
everything comes clothed in cost
I can give you all you'd want
but everything comes clothed in cost
Track Name: Marco
Marco looks out the window
at the cars passing by
as he cleans the hotel room
tenth floor
overlooking Miami's Bayside

It's been some time
sunset and sunrise
since he's wondered why
and just how he got here

Marco looks out the window

Is the grass really greener
now on the other side?
Track Name: Cost
You had heart
boy I'll give you that
but you sold away your soul
and there's no getting it back
for you
or me
oh you

Now you got nothing left to give me
your blood is cold
you could sweep the frets just like Jimi
but your blood is cold

You signed his book my darling
you'll pay the toll
stuck at his forked tongue turnpike
darling, your blood is cold

You had dreams
boy you gave it all
just to have your name on a street full of stars
I hope you got what you want

Your hand in mine means nothing
your blood is cold
no more comfort comes from touching
your blood is cold
