All the Same
All the SameDrive the car off the track Change the flat tire, sharp as a tack You prayed a lot, paid your debt but the people you met didn't get it Don't forget how we both relate I'm the same as you Row the boat with no oar Always leave the water wanting more It took a lot / You gave your share but it seems, everyone, they just want theirs Don't forget how we both relate You're the same as me It's all the same / All that remains is a heart So throw the man overboard He'll be clean once he's washed up ashore and leave it all to the wind You'll either sink or swim, so just get in Don't forget how we both relate I'm the same as you Don't forget how we both relate You're the same as me
Mister ManI've got a lot on my mind, so thanks for being so kind I wanna break the world and put it back together again So, mister man, where are you going to? Come back, I've something to say to you Mister man, where are you going to? Mister man, mister man, ahh There's something wrong with my brain / It's sending signals of pain and if it's all the same, I won't be back here ever again So, mister man, where are you going to? Come back, I've something to say to you Mister man, where are you going to? Mister man, mister man, ahh So many things to say and so much in the way Before you leave today, let me show you the way So, mister man, where are you going to? Come back, I've something to say to you Mister man, where are you going to? Mister man, mister man, ahh
Don't Play Dumb
Don't Play DumbFell out of a rabbit hole and onto the tiki floor Was saved by a little child then suddenly changed his mind The brandy tasted so fine so he thought he'd take his time Now I won't be so brash if you'll just do, do what I ask Don't play dumb You're calling me / I'm falling for you but we don't stand a chance She played her song for him and his world began to spin and when he couldn't stand, he left for another land Thought he was seeing red but, four years later, their love was dead Now I won't be so brash if you'll just do, do what I ask Don't play dumb You're calling me / I'm falling for you but we don't stand a chance Don't be alarmed It's just the setting you're forgetting Don't be alarmed It's just the setting that you're forgetting, girl You're calling me / I'm falling for you but we don't stand a chance
The ViewPaint your pretty little face and come along with me into the night We'll lay together in the grass / Your heart is beating fast Undeniable chemistry Never wasting time when you're on my mind Oh, to be what you want of me Oh, to see the view There was a man from outer space and he saw a diamond dancing in the sky He wanted more than just a taste He knew it was a case of inescapable destiny It's so hard to find one of another kind Oh, to be what you want of me Oh, to see the view So if I'm gone without a trace, yeah and you're crying cause I'm not around Just you call me on the phone and I'll be coming home Anytime, anywhere So don't make a sound / You know where I'll be found Oh, to be what you want of me Oh, to see the view Oh, to be what you want of me Oh, to see the view
Maybe TomorrowRough draft of a new song.
I've Been High
I've Been HighOld song. New Take. I'm still not completely satisfied with the vocals but I had to give in a little or it would have been another five years before this saw the light of day.
Tuesday Morning After Breakfast
Tuesday Morning After BreakfastMade on a Tuesday morning, after breakfast.
ElectricityA song inspired by bioluminescence. Electricity down in the water Electricity down in the sea Erupting spirals of lightning Unwind through the blackness of life in the ocean Glow worm, brain on display What does it say? It says: I, me, mine

Hidden Flute, Oily Wand
Hidden Flute, Oily WandIn the hidden flute / far beyond the oily wand Bears the secret fruit / torn from mother nature's womb In the hidden flute Watch the curtains grow / things are told into the fold Protoplasmic birth / a thousand toads of long ago In the hidden flute
Sun Sonnet (featuring Kaitlyn Vaughan)
Sun Sonnet (featuring Kaitlyn Vaughan)The lead guitar for this song was recorded in two improvised takes by Kaitlyn; then I cut her performances into one or two note fragments and rearranged them into a melody using GarageBand. Nobody ever stops to curse the sun for rising, setting, mimicked passing time. For seven billion rabbits on the run. For casting light on life’s extrinsic grime. Nobody ever tries to shut it out. The one’s that do are dealt out of the game. The one’s that don’t will gain imagined clout and bask in every day that is the same. But time is an invention of the mind and holds no currency inside the soul. Our suns and moons will rise and fall in kind and those who follow pay their mortal toll. So I will turn my back to clocks and dials; My static looking glass can see for miles.

Purple (Automatism at The Gypsy House)
Purple (Automatism at The Gypsy House)(Written and recorded on the spot at The Gypsy House) I see your hair's in disrepair again You're calling out and I can hear the wind Calling me instead of the trees; they've forgotten you Beckoning to the sea, away from the diving kind again I love the scent of everything in here Oh, incense, it makes it disappear Feeling green, torn asunder by a cloud Everyone I know is up in smoke now Does the air inside my head please you? Do you care just what I wear? Do I tease you? You see me caught above in a fit of jealousy Take my hand, take my head, it's all part of me
