Hey, Can we just talk about this? Lower frequencies can enter higher densities Do you hold beliefs that deny someone's right to be? And pass on peace just to hate another being? Want No Trouble Say, what kind of field do you create? What is the imprint that you make? What do you give? What do you take? What do you take? We want no We want no trouble We want no We want no trouble No need to fight When everything is seen from the oversight We don’t want to fight, No Any day or night…

Flex 02:30
I heard them talkin ‘round town They’re saying that you want me How you control yourself You’re taking your time not to rush me Rush me… You know what you want You’re playing your long game I see the way you flex I know that you want me You do your best You know your way to me Is by playing your long game You know your way to me Is by playing your long game Long game... The space I need to succeed You be yourself And you comprehend me Something happens when we’re working out Communication plays my heart strings… You know what you want You’re playing your long game I see the way you flex I know that you want me You do your best You know your way to me Is by playing your long game You know your way to me Is by playing your long game Long game… Something happens when we’re working out It opens me up… It opens me up to the thought of you beside me...

Is it true what they say? Nothing gold can stay Even on them rainy days The Sun still shines it’s rays When the miners sifting through Will they see a glimmer of truth? Everything they find that day Nothing gold can stay… Have you ever guessed it twice? Everything has its price Do you see the difference in advice? Between them cats and mice Is there some value to you? In a piece of damaged fruit Food for thought is thrown away Nothing gold can stay Oh is it true what they say? That nothing gold can stay? Whether this is true for you Is your choice to pursue…

Eyes For You 02:44
When I'm looking around, touching the town I only got eyes for you True to us, not new to us We only wake up and choose If you want a man who only does what he can I'm not the right one for you Meet me on the edge, catch a view Oh Darlin, Only got eyes for you I'm an outdoor cat, you know that I want to come home to you I belong to the dirt when people flirt Oh they don't know my business There's nothing they can do my hearts for you From the moment I saw you I don't need happy wife to have a happy life Oh Darlin, Only got eyes for you

Be My Baby 03:02
You get me up with a snap Handful of true desire You make my view erupt Your casting spells to the depths of my heart I revere the way you feel Best be straight up about it Wanna be my baby? Get a little crazy We're speaking with our feelings Let me take you to the stars Ya be my baby You are a charmer of snakes So mesmerized by your smooth movements You lookin for excitement I keep an ace in my pocket I am clear in the way I feel I revere the way you feel Best be straight up about it... Wanna be my baby? Get a little crazy We're speaking with our feelings Let me take you to the stars Ya be my baby

Busted 02:02
Y’Busted if you think that we will ever share the same world views Y’Busted if you force another to adopt your version of truth Y’Busted if you overlook the facts searching for more clues Y’Busted if you don’t qualify the talking points you use Reveal it to feel it Feel it to heal it Y’Busted if you let them weaponize your need to be right Y’Busted if you go out of your way to dim someones light Y’Busted if you stand in line & never think twice Y’Busted Ya Y’Busted if you silence yourself just to be nice Reveal it to feel it Feel it to heal it

In the middle Of some trouble Beyond my control I find myself Doing “nothing” If standing & breathing were nothing at all To this madness I am a witness Here to observe On the edges I go unnoticed I see my reflection in your… Crystal Clear Eyes Everything that I am feeling Is an ocean inside Muddy waters When I’m reacting Creates a divide The energetics That are in motion Is a powerful tide Facts & deception will return to light You bring all waves into alignment through your… Crystal Clear Eyes

Decades 04:10
Its been ten whole years Its been ten whole years Since I saw you Its been ten whole years Its been ten whole years Since you walked by & caught my eye When I go floating through our memories It feels so nice to visit them Using our emotions we are time travelling Moving through the 4th dimension Decades Its been ten whole years Its been ten whole years Since I met you Its been ten whole years Its been ten whole years Since the surprise of lookin’ into your eyes Standing in your presence is such a treat Feeling into our expansion When we come together we are amplifying Love into this existence Decades Its been ten whole years Its been ten whole years Its been ten whole years Its been ten whole years...

about

“Want No Trouble” by Mark Mills sounds like Depeche Mode was commissioned to score a 1980’s Patrick Swayze film, a smouldering stare distilled & funnelled into a 1983 Linndrum synced to a Yamaha DX7 bass sequencer. From sizzling synth & guitar hooks to soaring vocal lines, the phenomena of attraction & hopeless romance, to impermanence & existentialism, Mark Mills channels his highest vision.

Written & Produced from December 2019 - September 2021, a concept & collection of bass lines & drum loops that were certainly embedded with a type of pre-pandemic vigor that took an elevated level of strength & finesse for Mills to complete, amidst the challenges facing our societies and our species. Thankfully, he had a couple sex-pop angels that blessed the project from remote locations.

Mike Wallace (Preoccupations) descended from his Indie-Alt-Rock throne to infuse the track "Flex" with smoke & edge, as his snappy drum performance merges perfectly with the Linndrum sequence, a track that Mills composed as a channel to Funk-Rock lords of old, designed with the smirk of Prince & a Rick James shoulder shake in mind. The addition of Ty Toews' vision is an undeniable enhancement to Mills' Alt-Pop offerings, from sensational guitar riffs to arrangement assists, Ty Toews & Mark Mills wove their sensibilities into groove magic, shining bright on tracks "Nothing Gold Can Stay", "Eyes For You" and “Be My Baby”.

Mark Mills wants no trouble, a vision he holds with crystal clear eyes, even though he knows nothing gold can stay, and aspects of our day-to-day life is busted, he envisions the opportunity for all to flex and to hear their love softly say "be my baby, I only got eyes for you", for many precious decades to come.
