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: 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: 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: 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: 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
