about

I'm writing a song a week for all of 2014.
The entire thing is going function as one big continuous album. Each song is going to be a story, and each song will also continue the story that precedes it.

Track Name: It Happens Right Before Our Eyes
If you're craving
Or with wanderlust,
(Though I’m sure it’s beyond us)

Cause the tiniest of change
And the pawns are among us.

Would it bring you back around?
If we swallowed
The hallow?

But if they send you
Or move you,
You’d feel closer to the rest of us.

If the world tries to keep you down
You run wild.


If you dare to
Come around with us
(Though I’m sure you're beyond us)

Could you turn it back around?
If we let go
And just let you.

It happens right before our eyes.
And we like it,
Cause we made it so.

It’s a half sin
And it’s parting smiles;
And it’s changing every inch of us.
Track Name: Kisses To Kisses, Dust To Dust
I have something to learn here… something new and of a different color. In watching movements make their way from start to end (a clicking button, a painted lady). Kisses to kisses, dust to dust - Kisses to kisses, dust to dust.

A puzzle piece in my hand, I have been told that I am not alone in my body. I am occupied by another that I loves to ruin. Kisses to kisses, and dust to dust. Kisses to kisses and dust to dust; another soul eating sevens - Five times over and lost in heaven. Or have the years checked me into an empty room. Five times over in pretty dresses; five happy others making their way away. Breathing love into a dangerous poem. Every perfect mouth is full of perfect last words. I find this whole ordeal to be quite obscured.

Red lips. Itchy necks. Tanned dancing legs. Lying on couches. Look at the time go by. Bright screens. Eyebrows rising. Toes engaging - let us fix our posture and pet each other’s heads around in a circle.

Listening -
Till the sounds forget themselves, and end up reincarnate. I was something else once. I can’t remember what it all was. This world is a wonderful place. As it sleeps it explores what life on the surface of the sun would sound like. Where would the sounds go? Bracing themselves and trying to figure out where and when to laugh. How many moments will remain if all I do is subtract? How many people have I become? How can I remove my own history repeating? It’s a subconscious matter it’s out of my hands and in another realm – TURN ME BACK AROUND. Kisses to kisses and dust to dust. Kisses to kisses and dust to dust. Kisses to kisses and dust to dust. Kisses to kisses and dust to dust.

“Carbonated knowledge of the fecund one. An animal will chase itself cause that's the only way. Twisting through a telescope in a parking lot. Climbing up a women who is pulling on some rope.”
-Jarred Hodgdon.

Track Name: There's A Witch Inside
There’s an asshole drinking, he's about to see the way he was back then. And there’s a punch line coming but it never hits your ears even though it's crystal clear.

You can keep all my skin.

There’s a witch inside she's about to blow the roof off this entire secret.
And I feel the itch in every inch and its safe to say

You can keep all my skin.

And the noise I’m hearing it's about to disappear and I cant explain the way it goes to pieces once again. I’m forgetting everything.

You can keep all my skin.

This shit is overrated, it's about to cave in. I'm contemplating the way this life moves.
But I can’t explain to you if you'll never hear the truth.

You can keep all my skin.
Track Name: How Babies Are Made
Nuck Nucker

One night, I thought it would be perfect to show you how the ground is just another treasure we could unfold. And when your soft smile came down and gave me kisses
I made up my mind that I’d show you something
That could put all these brand new thoughts inside of your head…
And if it doesn't serve you well then I’ll make amends dear.

Humans inside of humans, put there by humans inside of humans put there by

His hands were like a thousand spirals digitalized. Your eyes they stuttered and they rolled back into your head. Time felt still while clouds came down and gave you kisses. Who's this trickster? Where does he think he's going? I don't like the way that I'm feeling deep inside. And then I find that something’s growing, but its not mine dear.
Track Name: In The Mist
Oh my who’s that
Sitting there so alone
Tangled up
In the mist
She’s the one I wanna put heart into

What’s your name?
I think that’s pretty tight.
I just wanna be with you tonight
You’re so sweet
I think I’ll take a bite
I just wanna dream with you tonight.


I saw you and I haven’t closed my eyes, since then
I know its real cause the thought of you is clear

I’m gonna go out on a limb
Once I have a perfect plan
I'm not wasting all my time
Cause you’re the best there ever was
Track Name: Betty Beyond
Speeding through dreams
Touching down with miles to go
Betty she’d sing
And laugh at all your fucking jokes
She’d wear your shirts
And turn around to smile aloud
She’d tap around the room
And whisper out a stream of birds

I don't mind speeding by

Some one who cared
Some one who was always there
Like a monk who caught on fire
And left a message in his ash
She moved beyond
The tunnel vision and the daze
So I could understand
And make the choice to lose my head

I don't mind speeding by
Track Name: You See Me, I See You
It happened again just last night.
My eyes opened up to the deep of night.

You see me and I see you, but you’re not real but what is real

The taste of 4 am in the air; The sky was lit up by pattern of clouds that circled slowly to make a frame and in the center I saw spinning lines again.

You see me and I see you, but you’re not real but what is real

I’m waking up and seeing things again. They’re not there or maybe I'm not here. I keep them keep close to my chest and make their home in my head.

I try to focus on its shape but it slowly starts to fade away…

You see me and I see you, but you’re not real but what is real.
Track Name: I'm Beyond The Edge
I’m beyond the edge
But still I’m spreading out towards
The floating heads
That creep around for answers.
The priest is dead
But I hold his memory captive…
Till we appear again
And discard the dizzy dreamers.

Cracking out of shells, Then leaving till we’re gone.

I’m jumping off the edge
And landing on the back of culture.
I’m picking at its head
And pulling out some distant answers
To cure the thoughts we’ve had
That penetrates the younger monsters.
Predicaments aside,
We’ll slip it on and fix it up tight.

Cracking out of shells, Then leaving till we’re gone.
Track Name: Beneath This Veiling
What if every single night the ones we need completely changed?
What if every little spark is hiding grace? Cause this is boring.
What if every bit of every single piece - what if every bite we take is mean?
What if I don’t care to let them see me when I’m lying on on my back?
If every room that I walk in to, still reminds me the place I don’t want to know.
Spider webs wrap around my head but still they see the parts I don’t want to show.

Blankets yes it blankets well it blankets you too
Well it blankets yes it blankets yeah it blankets you too

What if every single fight we’ve lived and breathed would never sleep?
What if all we felt inside was tucked away - beneath this veiling?
What if I’m wrapped in myself again – what if this is true for everything?
What if I’ve show my soul and still it wont suffice cause you’re … FAKE

If every room that I walk in to, still reminds me the place I don’t want to know.
Spider webs wrap around my head but still they see the parts I don’t want to show

Blankets yes it blankets well it blankets you too
Well it blankets yes it blankets yeah it blankets you too
Track Name: Render Them Away
I like how it feels
On my dull skin
Under water
While the warmth flows

To find a way to disappear

Mix it around
Wash my thoughts away
As it happens
Circles in the air

This is my way to disappear

Turn the heat up
Fill the room with steam
Conversations
Lost inside my silent plan

To find a way to disappear

I like
To be
And I am
Soapy
And I render them away.
Track Name: Fugazme
Why did you move towards this head trip
And reminisce bitten off tongues?
A murder of punks – mashing about
Cautious but glued to that howling.

I hear and feel a sound (what is this born of)
The broken pieces of (this dream is becoming)
A band I used to breathe – calling out my (you can take this rhythm)
On a corner of a street – in Paris calling out my name (so we will never end)

This gift will make you change our mind
Once you wake up and really feel it

I still remember when you took a bow and left every single one of us note less.
Track Name: The Dows
They’re not on the radio
I could never understand how that rings true
How can every single question get lost in the room
Cause they keep on getting better with each new song they bring into view

It matters not, the way they move the air
I sense they are precisely where they want to be
The Night Light is the switch that holds
A complicated answer to an Oakland dilemma

I’ve heard every single person round here state the interest they have in you
the alchemy on the walls
Lacing every drink in sight again
Turning bromance into kids
Dancing around in spite of it
Singing along without a hint
Bending the key and loving it

The tide was in but we just watched

They’re lost on the radio
I’ll remember everything after seven are spent
I'm hoping that they come for you
So we can dance around like it’s 96
I’d blast you on the radio, roll down the dows and crack the moon roof too
How can every single question get lost in the room
Cause they keep on getting nowhere with each new song they bring into view
Track Name: Escape From Reason
The only complication I see standing in this room is staring back at you. The only escape from reason is the one that I’m letting read me. Floating through the leaves the world concedes the way it can’t fathom the way to turn boys to men. This thought is full of nothing and the past is full of all the entropy that I see in your eyes.

I’m staring at your shadow from under the door - you’re knocking but you can’t come in…

Till you become
What we dreamed up
In those years that
Are now missing.

The breaks are squealing, escapes from reason; the road will lead you too. The only way to take a turn is take his turn then bite around the bush and get your fill. The other way that obvious is punch until the heads of all the friends around you hit the floor. Beg forgiveness of the stars above and hope they find you well. I take the tick that tocks the tempo to the time that tackles tepid ticklers down to the floor. My eyes are on the floor, your lips are on the floor cause everybody’s on the floor when we listened to the words they made.

I’m staring at your shadow from underneath the wooden door - you’re knocking but you can’t come in. I’m staring at your shadow from underneath the wooden door - you’re knocking but you can’t come in.
Track Name: All Over Town
I didn’t really care to learn your lucid secrets
It seemed insane that you would ever let the truth show
This isn’t the first time and it never was
Each week, in the end it’s the same
The jokes on you, and the jokes on me
The shape of boredom, chasing us all over town
In one ear and tragically out the other
If things ever really make a difference to us all
Right beneath our hopeful eyes
Pressed against a crumbling wall
Holding tight although it hurts
Hopeful that we lose our way

It doesn’t matter much to me that (baby) what I have in mind will never find the best of you or strike a chord and resonate and bring us back to planet earth – or bring us closer to a friend that only wants to understand and get to know - - - a deeper part of everything around the heart.

35 made it show – almost done but it never ends
35 made it choke – almost done but it never ends
Track Name: Ladyboner Dentata
I can help you plan
I can tickle the walls that ceased to breathe
A carnival of tact
Tracing lines to usher change

I swear I’ll text you back
Cause you tend to crack me up
Thank god for extra shirts
Thank god it hides your lady-boner

I understand
I’ve made up the look in your eyes

Let me pay you back
Give me a chance to make it better.

I’ll take you out tonight
To thank you for your inclusive nature

We’ll dance in the rain again.
Track Name: Hell Bent
I wont ever blink - -
cause this might vanish
She’s a beauty queen - -
on the railroad

While I’m twisting things
She won’t stop the metal
She’s been visioning
Past life regressions

What’s that rumbling sound
Way off in the dark
Tied up but hell bent
You can’t keep ideas down

I’d keep the secret for you
The mask is just a phase come true
The sky feels infinite and dark
The twinkle is in your eye decides to fade

What’s that rumbling sound
Way off in the dark
Tied up but hell bent
You can’t keep ideas down
