"Dables is Mediocre: THE UNFINISHED ALBUM"

These tracks are what I could salvage from the abandoned sessions of "Dables is Mediocre". It is not mixed as well as it should be, but I am tired of these tracks sitting on a hard drive, so I figured it's time to finally put out what was mostly finished from the sessions. I like to think of it as the Dables version of Smiley Smile by The Beach Boys, haha!

The tracks were recorded throughout roughly Oct 2014-Feb 2016. For many reasons, none of which you should worry about too much, the album was never completely finished.

This release is missing about 5 songs (and some of these aren't at what I would call '100%' either) that are in varying levels of completion, but incomplete enough that they can't be released. Sorry 'bout that, but here's what remains from that year and a half of recording! RAWK AND/OR ROLE no matter what!! DABLES WILL NEVER DIE.

PS - If I ever get around to it, I will re-release this album with the tracks that aren't on here and with everything remixed and remastered. Consider this the sample version.

Track Name: Succumbing to the Weight of the World
I'm just sittin' here
drinkin' on my very last beer
and succumbing to the weight of the world

tell me what do you know, tell me every little thing
cause I'm here in the dark, walking around and feeling cold
I need a mystery to surround every part of me
so you can understand my weird and cryptic will

it's obvious to me
it all just shines so clearly
if you look too hard you'll never see
Track Name: Son of Sweet Leaf
I know you wanna go wherever you can
but i will always be in your dreams

some people say my love cannot be true
sweet leaf tells me what I now must do
these people will just never understand
the way that i feel whenever you take my hand

oh yeah
Track Name: My Name is Dables
hey how's it going my name is dables
I really ain't got much to say
I just want to play a few songs for you today
and hope that you like it, cuz if you don't then just shut up
and wait and see, you will rock with me tonight
if you just believe that rock n roll can save your life
because it can and it will, I will personally see to that
just give me a chance and maybe you will see
my name is dables
Track Name: Helpin' Greenville Find its Grooove

Track Name: Lost in Fantasy
need to be in the world of you and me
fly to the sea and leave something sweet for me
can you see we are forever lost in fantasy
you will not believe how close we are to destiny
my biology overflows with irony
Track Name: Tender Situation
take this ache as the final break
a tender situation, create a good illusion
feel the grip of your salvation
yeah dude this is tender situation

get off the pot man, shake and bake
taste the waste boy, taste the waste
what is your place in my glorification
this is really a tender situation

get off the pot man, shake and bake
taste the waste boy, taste the waste
pump it up or stray from that old station
yeah dude this is tender situation

take this ache as the final break
a tender situation, create a good illusion
feel the grip of your salvation
yeah dude this is tender situation

make your move man, state your case
taste the waste man/boy, taste the waste
what is your place in my glorification
this is really a tender situation

make your move man, state your case
taste the waste fucker, taste the waste
pump it or stray from that old station
yeah dude this is tender situation

Track Name: What You Need
I have been to the lake of fire and it sucks
I have been everywhere a man could ever go
you have no idea what you're getting into
mess with me and I swear you will get burned

I got what you need
but you ain't gonna get shit from me

when you think you have won that's when I strike
I will crush everything that you have ever loved
There will be nothing left but a pile of bones
mess with me, soon you'll see your life is gone

I got what you need
but you ain't gonna get shit from me
Track Name: The Longest Winter
spring comes slowly to this old friend
still I'm frozen, I still live alone
in time memories fade, senses numb
one forgets how it feels to have loved completely
love well young man while you still can
once your leaves turn, you won't love again
in time memories fade, senses numb
one forgets how it feels to have loved completely

is it special when your lonely will you spend your whole life
in a studio apartment with a cat for a wife
the seasons when they call you do you barricade the door
are you stubborn, stubborn, stubborn to the core
is it your way or the highway?
is it your way or the highway?
is it your way or the highway?
is it your way or the highway?
