about

A record about the great times and awful times that kind of cancel each other out and make life pretty alright. All instruments played by me (with the exception of "The Sunshine Waltz" and "Deep as the Ocean, High as the Sun").

Track Name: Deep as the Ocean, High as the Sun
Deep as the ocean
High as the sun
Some say that happiness
Is a warm gun

Well I disagree
And heres what I say
When you see the light
You better look the other way

Standing beside
A brand new day
Yet all I see
Is quiet dismay

But there ain't no use
In trudging about
Here's a little bag
To store away your doubts

(Solo)

Deep as the ocean
High as the sun
When will we all
Come together as one
Track Name: Unmended Seams
A grassy field I begin to heal
The open wounds that I start to feel
When the world is near my thoughts unclear
Until I finally see your here

Broken dreams unmended seams
I'm not sure that u know just what it means
To hold my hand to speak to soon
To gaze upon you under the moon

There's nothing I wouldn't give
To feel again heal again
to have your loving arms near again
I know I got a snowball's chance in hell
So I got no choice but to get in my shell

Love is blind, well I don't mind
Even if the sun begins to shine
Just pull the shades we got it made
You know my love for you will never fade

Bible burnings weekly earnings
We finally find that our thoughts are churning
Back and forth and to and fro
Till we don't know who we are no more

(Solo)

I just can't feign, a broken chain
I finally see your the one to blame
Playing with my mind you'll finally find
You can't keep treating me so unkind

There's nothing I wouldn't give
To feel again heal again
to have your loving arms near again
I know I got a snowball's chance in hell
So I got no choice but to break out my shell
Track Name: Stay Away
Stay away
From the loathing eyes that point your way
Don't let them see
That your holding back the person you want to be

Cause when it comes down to it
The only opinion that matters is your own
And when it crumbles down you better be ready to get up without showing
The scars that'll heal with a little time
And leave you with a clearer mind
Mini

Avert your eyes
From the ugly stain of the deceitful lies
Hold it all in
Till the sun finally decides to rise again

Cause when it comes down to
The only opinion that matters is your own
And when it crumbles down you better be ready to get up without showing
The scars that'll heal with a little time
And leave you with a clearer mind
Track Name: Cookie Cutter
These words they came to me in a dream
A sleepy haze, a reverie so it seems
Like a set of crooked steps in the snow
Leading to a place where the river doesn't flow

A lonely troubadour at the end of a road
Where all of our ideas are bought and sold
To the empty minded man in an easy chair
Who cuts out the fat and stores it upstairs

A cookie cutter in the shape of a star
To feed the people that still seem to starve
A desert a tundra that is void of all life
A shadow looming as dark as night

But I can’t take this anymore
Even when the devil comes and pounds at my door
I'm not gonna be your player in my game
But it don't seems the same

Five out of ten times catching yourself in a lie
Delusions of adequacy thinking that you could fly
Selling your soul is the only way
To spurt out lies when you don't have a word to say

An alley cat locked out from its home
Forced to wander aimlessly through the cold
Patchy at best amidst a world of perfection
Ooh Search for a new direction

Shatter the windows and break the beams
Of the house built upon a land that gleams
Whether or not is no longer a question
Please allow me to make a suggestion

But I can’t take this anymore
Even when the devil comes and pounds at my door
I'm not gonna be your player in my game
But it don't seems the same

I'm not gonna be your player in my game
But it don't seems the same
Track Name: Fragmented
Well. I might be a little crazy
To think things will mend in
Time. But there's always a glimmer
Of hope when you hear the
Chimes. Sound over the sea spray
Which brings me a mellow Mind

When will the tempest wither away
No one ever tells you that the seasons never really change
Pick up those pieces that litter the walls of your soul (triplets)
Cause if u don't they will stay there until u grow old (triplets)

Take. Me to a place
Where the days never seem to
End. Where there is no memory
Nor any
Friends. To rock the boat
But I ain't worried
Cause The choppy seas will rock me to sleep
