about

Clumsily played, clumsily written, clumsily recorded. Whimsical yet serious, this was my first submission to February 2009's album writing month. Looking back, progress was made towards becoming an artist and it meant forgetting everything you thought you knew about songwriting and becoming who you were supposed to become. ALBUM #5

released March 1, 2009

Track Name: no one knows
as he stood trial for the first time in his young young life
he had admitted something that he knew had been causing strife
he said i could be gay or i don't know bisexual
no one knows if his choice encounters with men had been sexual
and you know,
no one knows
but him and those men
he had chosen
he had chose a gay man and he took all of his money
and his friends would beat him and then leave him struck by an SUV
as his body lay relieved
of the beating
manslaughter
was the charge
although this boy standing trial did not intend to kill anyone
his lowly tactics of luring and beating gay men was enough
he was convicted of manslaughter and hate crimes as an added charge
his claim he was gay did not affect his trial or the jury
but you know,
no one knows
if he's gay
or is that what trial made him say
Track Name: i thought we were friends
you're never gonna see me again
you're never gonna see me again
i thought we were friends
i thought we were friends
the last time i saw you we were on a train
accidentally we were on the same plain
i was in shock, i was amazed
you just ran off in a craze
you're never gonna see me again
you're never gonna see me again
i thought we were friends
i thought we were friends
apparently, i harmed you in some way
but just the thought of you evokes some pain
i had a message i had to relay
you were not strong enough to even stay
you're never gonna see me again
you're never gonna see me again
i thought we were friends
i thought we were friends
let me write the ending to this play
i will not intentionally chase
the thoughts that will not go away
i will swear that from this day
you're never gonna see me again
you're never gonna see me again
i thought we were friends
i thought we were friends
avoidance will be paramount
your memories i will have to discount
my love for you i will have to recant
a seed of hate i will plant
you're never gonna see me again
you're never gonna see me again
i thought we were friends
i thought we were friends
i thought we were friends
i thought we were friends
Track Name: that's going to win your heart
cement presses the sky
as your eyes meet mine
avert your gaze
from my old ways

cos' i lose my mind
and i don't know why
these days i'm filled
with rage that kills
and i don't see how
that's going to win your heart

the rest of your life
has been intertwined with mine
fate says it's so
we can't be so sure
can we?

cos' i lose my mind
and i don't know why
these days i have killed
the blood i have spilled
and i don't see how
that's going to win your heart

hmm hmm hum hum.
Track Name: what is it about you that i like
what is it about you that i like?
what is it about you that i like?

your flowing hair in the breeze
your crazy smile to tease
your loving eyes make it easy
i know you wouldn't want to leave me

what is it about you that i like?
what is it about you that i like?

your cupid's laugh decieves
to hug your body relieves
endorphins start to seize
you're just the type to please

just one kiss would breathe insanity
into my life
just one kiss would bring humanity
back into what i write

so i ask again
what is it about you that i like?
what is it about you that i like?
Track Name: it all comes down to this
something inside me cries for you
something inside me wants you to
be part of what's becoming this
becoming something in this mist

i want to steal your man
i want to steal the plans that you've made
you're not gonna be her love slave anymore
rocked to the core

i do believe our love
i see what it's become
will you act out on it
or will i throw a fit

it all comes down to this
it all comes down to a kiss
it all comes down to this
it all comes down to a kiss

i will press on your lips
i will become your bliss
you won't be closeted anymore
you'll ask for more

the stars will shine
your lips on mine
caressing what's
caressing who
you know it's right
so just don't fight
(i can't help it anymore)
our bodies rock
against the clock

i will press on your lips
i will become your bliss
you won't be closeted anymore
you'll ask for more

it all comes down to this
it all comes down to a kiss
it all comes down to this
it all comes down to a kiss
Track Name: she sings to me
there is a girl
unlike others
she sings to me oh yea

she is real nice
she is my prize
she sings to me oh yea
she sings to me

she tells her lies
to other guys
when she thinks of me

she goes to school
she is no fool
she studies
she sings to me!

many times i've found love undercovers
things i never thought i would recover

she nurses me
back to glee
when she sings to me oh yea

i can rely
on her reply
when she sings to me oh yea
she sings to me
Track Name: morning sick
Morning Sick

am i simply broken
or just a piece of your past
with your words so full of conceit
i can't tell where i am
drink the dust in your cup
as you sit on the ashes and think
in my life, i have made some mistakes
the sky dropped a cylinder
priest aren't supposed to be this way
when feeling first shock
nurses addressing you
reel to reel remembering exactly what i feel
reel to reel remembering exactly what i feel
this time i'm going out nowhere
this time i'm going for a ride
semiotic ushers that can hear the past
with your words so full of conceit
i can't tell where i am
i'm a citizen in this land and i am a man
but i can't make it out alone
this life is coming to a slow
i can't even tell where i can go
semiotic ushes that can hear the past
with your words so full of conceit
i can't tell where i am
this time it's going out the window
everything's gonna change when i get home
everything's gonna change when i get home
everything's gonna change when i get home
Track Name: potential
think for a moment and let it last
about the ones who've come before that've passed
think for a moment, of how they died
or how they tried to live their lives

potential potential gotta think of what you've got
and how much of it have you sought

limitless unbounding energy
just waiting to be free
it's everchanging with your thoughts
circulating everything you've brought

chorus
potential potential gotta think of what you've got
and how much of it have you sought

bridge
will you follow the leaders of man
or just riding the next scam
you have the potential to shape things
open up your heart and learn to give

final chorus
potential potential gotta think of what you've got
and how much of it have you caught?
potential potential gotta think of what you've got
and how much of it have you sought
Track Name: this procedure
be true to me
darling please
i won't hurt

agree with me
darling please
i won't hurt

but your nails
will stick
in the dirt

this procedure
will show
what you're worth

nothing to see
keep driving by
i don't need help

shoveling dirt
quickly
is one man's work

but your nails
will stick
in the dirt

and the rest
of you
will follow suit

this procedure
will show
what you're worth

i'm going to be
on tv
after this

people will cry
and i will lie'
while you're dead

this procedure
will show
what you're worth

whether you wanted it
or not
you're given what you got
Track Name: blackbird progression
the time it takes
to find yourself
is never good enough
the song you make
when your heart breaks
is that which makes you love
no one's going to fight you
if you're down and out
there's every use in mending
walls to form a perfect ending
but everytime i see your face
i'm upset by your unending grace
and everytime i try to erase
i am taken by your embrace
for every heart you break
is another appeal to god
and he is left to love
when you don't have anyone to love
that all i need is your loving caress
when i am in distress
when i feel exhausted
or am aimlessly lost
you don't have to grow strong
find people to carry on
there's people waiting to do your work
and lovers ready to cherish hurt
the many times they fade away
they'll shine on and on and on and on again
they'll shine on
the universe is yours for the taking
don't let them steal it away
it's yours for today
it's yours for today
Track Name: soulmate
the sleeper dreamer is a juggernaut
because he'll want you
but he sleeps through
all the clocks set for his arise

she's a blessad angel on earth
and i'll cling to her skirts
and follow her to Heaven
with excellent resolve for the furutre

a superman
beyond his fate
will take your hand
become your mate
he's got a plan
he won't make us wait
you know this man
he is your soulmate

making haste taken a dreary road
darkened by gloomy trees
of the forest barely awake
with the dead trees

a superman
beyond his fate
will take your hand
become your mate
he's got a plan
he won't make us wait
you know this man
he is your soulmate

there may be a devilish Indian
behind every tree
if the devil at my elbow
does descend to the depths
of which i exist
i begin to stop existing
for existence is a passing phase
frail logic phenomena

a superman
beyond his fate
will take your hand
become your mate
he's got a plan
he won't make us wait
you know this man
he is your soulmate
Track Name: so insecure
each day is armed with lies
without you by my side
each day i try to find
what will help me inside
but i'm feeling so insecure
not knowing what is in store for me
and it hurts these lies
we're too preoccupied
with what we see outside
why must we deny
what must enter into our lives
but i'm feeling so insecure
not knowing what is in store for me
stuck in the mud there's no change
love is a concept so strange
but it hurts these feelings
and it hurts these lies
i'll find a better life just tuning out tonight
Track Name: pictures of my falling
each and every day i see
pictures of my falling
shut my eyes to the world pretending
nothing's wrong with yawning

the early bird will take my heart away
there's nothing left to say
but if you will play a part
in helping me at heart

each and every day i'll not see
pictures of my falling
i'll open my eyes to the world intend to
break all my pretensions

no girl will take my heart away
in light i will remain
inside me, love will stay
it'll stick like a good day

and then each and every day i'll see
pictures of my rising
i'll shut my eyes to the day
be real good and pray

my faith will be my guidance
i will venture forward sightless
and glorious it will be
i will die honestly

and then each and every day i'll see
pictures of my rising
i'll shut my eyes to the day
and be real good and pray
Track Name: yes, i've learned my lesson
Monday comes, out i go
staying up late to play the show
Tuesday comes, all is done
i'm not waking, my spine is breaking

yes, I've learned my lesson
believing in regression
never took me anywhere
understanding life's unfair

two weeks later, Sunday
comes around and then Monday
i lie awake in bed
stalling thinking work is death
something's wrong i'm wasting my breath

yes, I've learned my lesson
believing in regression
never took me anywhere
understanding life is fair

i got what i deserve by not taking care
staying in my underwear
now that i've got my grade, i see
what doing wrong has gotten me

yes, I've learned my lesson
believing in regression
never took me anywhere
understanding life is fair

yes, I've learned my lesson
believing in regression
never took me anywhere
understanding life is fair
