Huge thank you to:

Ben for providing a studio space and drum set on which to record drums, Angelina and Skyler for their outstanding vocal contributions and flexibility, my parents and family for their constant support, honesty, and good influence (not to mention most of the equipment used in recording). All of my friends and peers at SUNY Purchase or otherwise for providing an environment of creativity, dialogue, and inspiration. And of course, YOU, for taking the time to listen.

Thanks, sentiment, for always breathing down my neck and reminding me why I must write music.



I hope you enjoy it

Track Name: Moon
They will come for you
They will cover you now
Among the starts so intricately
Balanced in the sky

if they find you here
If they see you running
They'll chase you down and take you round
To wallow in the moon

A long time ago...

Citizen's arrest
Can we stop and rest here?
The colored tape and drinking games
Have relicized us all

Run until you drop
Smile till you stop
As you now fall to ground
In laughter and awe

A long time ago...

You know, you know
You know
Any time you know you know,
You know

No apologies
Only you and me
As all around us grey leaves fall
And swallow up the world

Polarized by thought
Struggle to be sought
I turn to you and hear you say
"You fight for what you've got"

A long time ago.....
Track Name: Sleepless, Inspired
They say some people come as blessings
Some as lessons
Are you a blessing or a lesson?
Waited so long
And for my own good
Slept alone

And though I'm sleepless I'm inspired
Write it down
Could you help me to remember?
Write it down
For your own good
Write it down

The cold light washes over everything
Told the sun to
Go away
Away
Pulled out all the stops
Sold the car

Snatched another day right out under your feet
See what happens when you notice
It's gone
And I'm sorry
But it's gone
Track Name: Used to Be
And one day we find ourselves talkin bout the way things
Used to be

Look up at the birds and at the sky, and I remember
How you feel

But what I can't recall
The way you used to see
I find myself alone in a room
With your apology

Pompous intellectuals have documents and transcripts
Of our words

But pages upon pages of our drivel gets us nowhere
Makes us worse

I'd like to make amends
You're doing better now, I hear
But I'm sick of your demands, why should I care?
You just crash and burn

And burn
Track Name: Houses
I could tear houses apart
Almost right from the start
Honey bun listen to me
Stand up and get off your knees

Each every day, turn your heart off
And each day and night, I'm turnin you off
But how will I know hatred from love
When all that I feel comes from above?

I could turn cities to ground
Tree falls, does it make a sound?
Make something out of these words
And you'll arrive first, second, third

Each every day, turn your heart off
And each day and night, I'm turnin you off
But how will I know hatred from love
When all that I feel comes from above?

Bury your feet in the sand
And wash it away
This wasn't the plan
Not what we had in mind
If you're not okay
Send up the smoke
Turn them away

Each every day, turn your heart off
And each day and night, I'm turnin you off
But how will I know hatred from love
When all that I feel comes from above?
Track Name: A Hundred
A hundred died away
Down in the deep blue sea
Old mix and paper cups
Laid out by you and me

The forest calls my name
I want to run away
From responsibilities
Sorting the things that stayed
Track Name: Yeti (lone wolf howls at the moon)
I see a yeti
Yeti, yeti
Yeti

Thinking of you
My dear

No one told me
It was like that

Nothing warrants acting
Like that


Aoooooo....


Off and on, the way you appear
Sold so much of my courage to get here
Off and on, and off and on
Till we find a place we belong
Where we belong
Where do we belong?


Nothing ever happens
When you're around

Struggled silence lingers
Hangs around

Feeling fingers grab mine
We're alone

But for thousands of them
Doubts in the room


Aoooooo....


Off and on, the way you appear
Sold so much of my courage to get here
Off and on, and off and on
Till we find a place we belong
Where we belong
Where do we belong?


Aoooooooo....
