when you see an insect don’t try to squash it things more powerful than you control the actions in your life I have a problem with no easy answer but you see I’m trying very very hard to just let it slide so I dream dream dream dream wasted by the daylight floating in the twilight ask me a question I’ll give you the answer you want to know I'm saying every little thing that’s on my mind I am a body stuck in a story things more powerful than me control the actions in my life so I dream dream dream dream wasted by the daylight floating in the twilight

Summer's End 04:51
father, we will never grow old and perfect love will always be yours sometimes I can see through your eyes and it’s good to feel that way and this is not the first time we’ve seen the last, the last of the green and you’re on my mind as the shadows fool my eyes ‘cause I found the season for your wintery pride and this is not the first time we’ve seen the last, the last of the green this is not the first time we’ve dreamed the last, the last of a dream at the summer’s end father, we will never grow old and perfect love will always be yours on the shore of the world let’s go swimming on the shore of the world let’s go swimming at the summer’s end and this is not the first time we’ve gone swimming, let’s go swimming

I snuck in to your room last night I stayed in the dark it was innocent dreams have pushed you around, you said but I am innocent you have let them in you think time left this behind but it’s in your mind you need love in your life magic turns words into prayers, you said to bring us back from the dead but it’s not happening a spell you tried made you blind, you said you can’t see the end you are innocent you think time left you alone but you were on your own it was you all along every other one you did know before if you loved them more they won’t love you now don’t look back at them anymore what are you looking for? they won’t beg for you I think you left this behind but you’re in my mind I need love in my life

Vision 04:47
sometimes, sometimes you’re on my mind and I can see your face in mine through one eye a happy sight in failing vision my ally, I see you in your imprecision your eyes, your eyes look just like mine and I can feel where we collide in our lives we’re pulled apart by indecision we tell lies and watch the world on television but I, but I want to change my life and I can feel we are aligned through love’s eyes despite the blindness we’ve been given so I’ll try to see you now with perfect vision

Comedian 02:40
a comedian died tonight beside my bed coughing in the moonlight oh how he didn’t want to go his face was painted white and he cried lord, let me live another life how could you be our hangman all the comedians in pain will you save them? my faith is in no one else’s hands will you keep me alive in your eyes? lord, let us live another life are we all part of your bad dream? where all the comedians laugh and scream and the riverbed weeps when you are sad everyone that opens their eyes tonight lord, let them live another life our bodies are falling apart but the way they move is a work of art a joke that’s killing everyone no one in the room is left alive lord, let us live another life a comedian died tonight beside my bed coughing in the moonlight oh how he didn’t want to go his face was painted white and he cried lord, let me live another life

Chances 04:44
when the rain falls it turns the earth into roses what I cannot perceive is here with me now in the roses when summer comes I twist myself into shadows what I cannot believe are calling me now in the shadows when fall is near I turn my heart into chances what I could not receive will come to me now in the chances in the roses
7.
Vampires 03:55
what are we doing here hanging on a dark night? what are we doing here this town’s a vampire ducking our silhouettes waiting for the cop’s light this town’s gonna eat us alive so we’re moving on puff on your cigarette, smoke it ‘till the hash lights pass me the bottle I’m looking for a quick high down in the basement we’re waiting for the twilight to feel strong, it’s the easiest lie but we’re getting high hide in the backseat I’ll go through the red light finish the liquor we’ll chase with the moonlight this is our shot let’s not blow it with stage fright this time we need to say goodbye ‘cause we’re moving on we’re moving on what are we doing here hanging on a dark night? what are we doing we’re just like the vampires
8.
time cools me with laughter as I see the ways I am changing and I know I want to be your ladder with love's elation in your eyes I’ll be your ladder while you’re changing
9.
Over The Sky 03:34
you are a question and I’m not an answer but I’m here and you still wonder why as you and me on our rollercoaster go around the bedroom through the ceiling and over the sky we go over stormy oceans and what if I let you fall down to the water where you drown without a sound and even though we both sway the motion I will surrender but I want to beg you now please don’t let me drown I’ll build the wings on both our shoulders and I won’t even mention all of the reasons why I fear to fly as you and me on our rollercoaster go around the bedroom through the ceiling and over the sky
10.
Take It Easy 03:33
I will surrender, follow me now punish the devil, pardon the clown ‘cause I need your love till this place is gone and I know there is a purpose in me and I’m getting better but I just hope you’ll take it easy on me you’ll take it easy in weakness and fantasy I’m waiting for you help me get over myself and I will be true for love is the way ‘till our final day and I know there is a garden in me I feel it growing but I just hope you’ll take it easy on me you’ll take it easy

about

The music on the album represents what’s happened in my life in the last few years, and I hope it shows my love for everyone who took part in that time with me. My friends and family have supported, loved, challenged and laughed with me and that is what I like to write songs about. I want to love more and better, I want to surrender more, I want to live with less fear, I want to participate in healing and connecting. I think I subconsciously write about the things I’m hoping for, and the songs on this album are about those desires.

Having the opportunity to make and release music is a serious blessing, so thank you for anyone who will listen to it and get something out of it. Also, shout out to everyone putting their hearts and souls on their sleeves in their art, you are giving strength to other people (like me) to make their own art and do it with as little fear as possible. I have admiration for artists and people who are unafraid to continually discover who they are. This record is a tribute to those people and to whatever level of that intention I can summon in myself.
