Madrone and Pine —

I can draw a line through my spiral It cuts through tension and liars, though The points in my timeline may harmonize The fading dissonance is beautiful Your circle is an endless loop You think it’s a line, fool Broken records and needles don’t rise I got out with smoke and voodoo Learned me good, […]

Grandmother’s Cigarette —

Memories are like feeding flies Looking for a way inside, but These days I get so high I get so high But your grandmother’s cigarette She was an Elvis vet Yeah, she was an Elvis vet I’m still learning the ropes Still trying to cope, and Still on that dope, I’m All wrapped in smoke […]

Blissful Ignorance —

I remember How long the sun was out Fall, feather And now I drown you out I feel Years past of today I steal Memories don’t go away Amazing The mind is a gift I’m playing It shines in the bliss Of ignorance Of ignorance Of ignorance This bliss Is ignorance Is ignorance Is ignorance

Victim —

How did I forgive you Every time Now I rummage through Just in time to find You were the best, but You were the worst, yeah You ruined it, see I’m not gonna pretend Like you’re insane But you’re always perfect in your own head Your guises serve to hide your shame You are the […]

“Nature’s Responses” —

Kill me and I’ll Kill you first I’ve already rehearsed You worried of fire and flood Of tainted blood Now buried in mud But you kept hurting me With white hot machines Your toxic regimes But now I can see And now you can’t breathe Ironic it seems So how does it feel? Now is […]

Selfish —

You’re so selfish Why can’t you see this You’re so selfish Why can’t you be selfless Like you pretend you are Every move has strings attached Now they’re withered and dry from friction (fiction) And your desperate pleas to come back Will still only feed your addiction, because You’re so selfish Why can’t you see […]

Lucy —

“It had to do with piecing together new thoughts in your mind. Why is it that people think it’s so evil? What is it about it, that scares people so deeply? Because they’re afraid that there is more to reality than they have confronted. That there are doors that they’re afraid to go in, and […]

Red Caskets —

Been like thisYou drowned me in itNow I see itNow I see it Things won’t ever beWhat you want them to beThe dead branches don’t everFall from your tree Been like thisNever questioned itNow I see past itFor what it is Things won’t ever beWhat you want them to beThe red caskets neverBled just for […]

Retrograde —

Pull me inI’m getting lostIn my pathI’m in retrograde Let it sink inAll that’s possibleDo the mathWe’re not in dismay I’m falling behindAnd you’re not blindPlease help me… I’ve been tryingBut you’ve been lyingSplashes on the street You’ll return once againThe sun will shine, my friend 2 4 6 8 10

One Way Mirror —

You say you don’t want toBut you shove words in my faceC’mon baby why don’t youPut me in my place I see through youCuz you can’t see yourselfThis one way mirrorMust be hell You say you’re a healerBut you reek of toxicityI’m past the manipulationAll your hypocritical empties I see through youCuz you can’t see […]

Broken Record —

A broken record // Says nothing new // Skips back and forth // I’m wasting my time // This broken record // Is nothing new // Flips back and forth // I’m sorry it’s mine // Cut the power // Tables won’t stop turning // Break the shower // These seasons keep churning // Wilt […]

Jimbo —

JimI saw you againAgain in a dreamYou weren’t so happyHappy to see me You came home and saw me andI remember your expressionIs it still your fucking chicken? Back when my gamesmasked all my tensionBack where the living roomBecame your regression You were a shimTo hold a woman togetherShe didn’t get any betterAnd you broke […]

Little White Lies —

(Instrumental acoustic guitar – work in progress) Lyrics: Your little white lies They’re passing me by You think I’m a fool You got things to do Your little white lies You don’t even try I was always there for you I’m so through with you I’m gonna rise above it So take your words and […]

My Dead Friend —

I wrote this a number of years ago for a good friend when I was concerned he was going to commit suicide. It’s always been one of my favorites. My Dead Friend Why did you end it You weren’t an enumerate My dead friend You weren’t what you think I wish I’d taught you to […]

Mudvayne – “Choices” —

A song from a long time ago that couldn’t be more relevant today in the United States (and around the world).. “Choices” (Mudvayne): Leaders are guilty of nothing They’re perfectly insane But if they’d point the finger at themselves Who would be left to blame Lead into grace Lead to corruption Ini-Mini-Miny-Mo A truth or […]

Toes —

Standing on your toes for a picture You know the recipe Wash through the masses With hidden corpses With your own forces With smiles and lies Comprimise Majority Kill me The stage is so relentless Watered down and bent, this The state is so relentless Bend, this

Training the World —

Backwards as fuck Imagine the luck Concrete evidence Disregarded Clown shoes Pathetic roos You think we’re entertained You think the world is entrained And maybe “we” are Complacent in numbers Dumbfounded and blundered But not all of us are naive Your game is pathetic We deserve more honesty But you want to trick the rest […]

Rehash —

Rehash You think you’re so suave Making new on the old Different gen, different gen Press play for your memories again Die Go away forever I don’t need your direction Fly Taste the shitty weather Rehash it all again I see your loop But I’m in debt to your coop I want to move with […]

Detox —

Reality Is a drug I am addicted Analog frequency I hear its nuance I can tell it from the digital Pre-existence Got too close and gravity pulled me in Locomotion brought me the distance My body Is a vessel With a locked captain’s door I can rise above I can pretend I am swimming in […]

Emulate —

What I want to be Is like grasping at straws Can’t get enough, enough I want to emulate Pedestal soaring above my head A monolith, a twin tower All I want is to endow her I am not fed from your plate I want to emulate Emulate What I need to be Contains all of […]
