story line: relationships of all kinds (love, professional, etc.) need movement in order to grow... modulate is a candid, almost humorous "conversation" about a relationship on the rocks. dude is trying to help salvage things but the chic is ready to let it go if they stay stagnant plus dude is a mama's boy to a fault rather than communicating his concerns to his lady. the negativity in the relationship even starts to manifest itself in noticing details like dude eating the food (actual and metaphorically) that the chic doesn't agree with, i.e. swine, processed foods, he subscribes to lots of ideals she doesn't agree with, etc. "modulate" encourages upward movement in love and life through real talk. so laugh and enjoy!


we could modulate
but you chose to hate
we could modulate
life with love is great

we could modulate
but you chose to hate
we could modulate
life with love is great

we can't modulate
what's that food you ate
we can't modulate
you eat what I hate

be careful what you ask for
be careful what you think about
be careful who you give you heart to
be careful who you give, your time to...
