about

Mount Weird is MPFM's 5th album, and first EP in the map series.

Somewhat of a detour, this piece of the map is more of a departure from the usual.

More relaxed and indifferent than previous albums, this part of the story is simply about enjoying what you have, and to not worry.

PS - I priced the album at $1000.oo because bandcamp steals my hard-earned money.

Track Name: Save Point
One thing I never gave myself
Was an intermission, a break
I was too caught up with the thought of
Never living down my next mistake
I was always telling myself heaven or hell lets rock
But afraid to follow through
They'd beat me to the draw if I paused
Couldn't get passed Level II

So I watched others go right by me
And I said "why me?"

Melodramatic cliche
Stuck on replay

Instead of lack of progress
Just stop the process

Everybody needs just one of these
So let's PAUSE PAUSE PAUSE PAUSE


TAKE A BREAK CREATE A SAVE
WHAT YOU DO FROM HERE IS OKAY
DIE, INFINITE TIMES, WITH NO REGRETS
TAKE A BREAK, ENTER YOUR NAME
MAKE IT STUPID AND PLAY THE GAME
DON'T CARE, DON'T THINK, DON'T FEAR JUST HIT RESET

Because the service I provide, I provide for me
Is the infinite amount of time with a hyper beam
You say you've got low health, well c'est la vie
WELL SO IS LIFE, well c'est la vie
WELL SO IS LIFE, well c'est la vie
WELL SO IS LIFE, well c'est la vie
WELL C'EST LA VIE, well c'est la vie
Well c'est la vie.

I've got 99 problems, all dalmatians
Ran out of leashes, don't have the patience
Left my keys and I got locked out
So I built another house
I don't even use words like "is"
Or do I believe in the word "fact"
The road less traveled became the highway
But my way is ripping the map in half

So try out life in 3-D
Turn off the TV

Richter Scale that Etch-a-Sketch
Turn and start fresh

Live like nobody's watching
Be your own Prom Queen

Everybody needs just one of these
So let's PAUSE PAUSE PAUSE PAUSE


Not perfect, not close at all
Got to the point to admitting fault
What you saw as self-involved
Was a terrified child putting up a wall
A coward, I counteracted
Not a day goes by where I wish I hadn't
Hindsight's 20/20
And I would change nothing
Because this is the place that I want to be
No matter how bad that it might seem
Take our mistakes, throw 'em at the stars
So they're not too bright, but they're still ours
Sit down, tell a story
Stand up, let's go exploring
When I get life out of the way I've got it all
Friends, time, and a sense of awe
Track Name: Ice Clock
Day 42 get stuff done
Gonna clean all the things
But first I have to check my email
And I can't just up and ignore my facebook feed
Oh is that a tweet? I hope it's about me
I like your opinion, glad that you found me
I love life hacks, that's a really nice hat
Ouch, they'll Prolly need an ice pack
EVENT INVITE CHECKIN' MAYBE
BACK TO VIDS OF UGLY BABIES
BACK TO ONLINE DATING SITES
NOPE NOPE NOPE ALRIGHT
The microwave's still beeping
Need to re-heat, need to repeat
So where did the time go it's 9:02
Carpe Diem tomorrow


One Day, I won't procrastinate
Some Day just Wait, I'll do a whole load of laundry
One Day, I think today's the day
Some Day I swear, I'll cancel my Netflix

(I'd like to learn a new language, but I'm too busy reading this care bears/sons of anarchy crossover slash fic)


Day 137, this time
I mean it no distractions
Turn on productivity
Turn off all known attachments
If I just minimize all my windows
well I'm sure it'll be alright
Just turn my phone on vibrate
Put it sideways out of sight
Now time for laser focus
Oh my god is that a fat squirrel?...


...


...You guys
I just saw the fattest squirrel

A giant woman (A giant woman!)
All I wanna do, is see you turn into
A giant woman (a giant woman!)



(You didn't think I'd forget about a certain feline shaped dairy-confectionery

Track Name: Regen (feat. Mayor Wertz)
nope, ow nope i just can't
now doesn't seem like the time to fun rap
a nap sounds great, the floor sounds greater
after I collapse I'll be awesome later
wow i'm still drunk, had a little bit
too much, do I have a show today or did I just do one?
need to do lunch, breakfast, something
anything, i'm losing energy that I need
to punch things, hey, my phone vibratin'
I still have my phone! hope my friends are awake-and
I gotta few missed calls all from the mayor
said I ran off screaming "double dare"
Yeah that sounds about right, calling, ringing
answer your phone dummy, ringing, ringing
I hope he picks this up in time
and yep my battery just died (yaaaay)



- I think I see the light,
I might have had a few too many last night

- I think I'm on empty
I need a recharge, I need energy


- I think I need some food,
Can we still get breakfast in the afternoon?

- I think I'm in good hands
my friends they've got my back


It was a bad idea to mix ALL the liquours
The thought of drinking anything else makes me sicker
The quicker I find friends, the faster I recover
Then recharge, under my covers
Come on steffo, pick up your phone, straight to voicemail
Phone must be dead, some advil would be the holy grail
But instead of popping tylenol, I'm popping blood vessels
schuffling around the hotel, looking discheveled
Why'd you run off screaming double dare
we were talking about the agrokrag, ugh I don't care
The hotel staff wont let me light this flare. Where'd you go?
What's on my arm? "the Beach Boys - Kokomo"?
We bodied that stage last night, the crowd was wild
But I might have accidently headbutted a child
Did you really pass out on the lobby floor Steffo?
That sounds about right,I'm impressed though. Let's go!
Track Name: Happy Mask
THIS IS WHAT I DO WHEN I JUST DON'T
THIS IS WHAT I DO WHEN I JUST DON'T
THIS IS WHAT I DO WHEN I JUST DON'T
GIVE - A - **** - TODAY

Inhibitions, time to let go
If you're in my way, LOOK OUT BELOW
Just grab my hands like a Coke commercial
Polar bear club, better be nocturnal
HA! Won by a landslide
Better high-five me when I pass by
Let's see who can jump higher
Oh it's me? GUESS YOU'RE RETIRED
I admire the fact that you try to be
Sad when it's too damn nice of a day
Let's go camping, I rented clouds
9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15
Something else, but I can't remember
Oh yes, it's 17, 17 clouds!

Hey what rhymes with boo-da-doo-du-duu?
I think it's purple. Definitely purple.
And you thought it was gonna be something like
HURDLE, or TURTLE, or CURDLE, or URSHLSDJL
The world - 0, me - 1
That's what I do when I'm having fun
I'm having a happy day today and I don't care
And I don't want to think that you don't want to be there
And guess what? It's your loss
Because this is the day that I'm sporting a tank-top
Also RIDING a tank-top, tanky tank tank
Take those rhymes to the bank
Anybody in my way is going to feel my wrath
'Cause today is a good day
So TAKE THAT anybody that thinks that
I take myself too serious (furious) OHHHHHH

(Why did my happy day get all spooky?
I can't rap to spooky right now, I'm too happy
Even if I rapped about something that was happy
It would sound like I'm trying to be scary
It's like the sun just went out
And something cold just touched my leg
It's sad, this is really scaring me you guys
I need a blanket, and a cup of tea)

I'm just gonna pretend to ignore that!
Remember the parts of the song before that!
I don't even remember recording that!
I KINDA GIVE A **** NOW
I think my song might be haunted
And the damn thing won't let me pause it
This might be the longest 3 minutes of my life god help me
Track Name: Purple Shield
I needed to love myself and I do
I needed to leave myself and I did
I needed to laugh myself to death
Came back with the energy and innocence of fifty kids
I was at a cliffhanger let it all go
But my memories kept me afloat
Created a boat made back to the shore of pangea
Took it all to pieces, let me read you a letter
Dear me!!! past-&-present
Attack on the future with hyper-beams
Long walks on the beach, get treasure
Metal detectors, better dreams


I've lived too long, worked too hard
Been through too much to quit this far
we need each other the world has put us
Together so we better grab shields and deal
Surround each other, red rover over
Anybody that tries to take our day
Barks our name, they'll join our game
We'll run right over sharing pain
Who needs a sword when you've got three hearts?
If you need one you can have my part
If it's not worth sharing, it's not worth having
If you wanna find the rest, we've got a good start
Combining forces, finding sources
What's mine is yours and the other way around
All I ever wanted was this, and I wouldn't trade
A moment of the life that I've got right now


So let's team up for a second
Promise to meet up for a second
At the end of time you'll find me
Under the lightpost telling stories and smiling
We've all got stories, laugh about 'em
Even if their bad just laugh about 'em
Because we don't get many moments like these to latch onto
Can't win 'em all but you can't let it stop you
You can't just rot, you've got to enjoy
The noise you've got, or else what's the point?
Take that love and go out with a bang
With a HYPER BEAM, tell 'em WHAT'S OUR NAME?
Gotta save energy, gotta make memories
Let these be what we tell our children
The faces of people might be forgotten
But they're making a sequel that we'll live on in
