Blood Sucking Leeches
Blood Sucking LeechesA song for all those money grubbing bastards out there. You know who they are. Cold blood sucking leeches Ever blowing my mind Just the same old speeches Always after what's mine It's the same old story Give me all of your cash Taking all of the glory Blood sucking leeches Keep your hands off my stash Take my sons and my daughters Take my car and my home While your hand's in my pocket Take my hat and my coat My dreams are my nightmares Chill me down to my bones Feel myself going nowhere Blood sucking leeches Take your hands from my throat Oh, no! Keep away! You can take everything I own, take it all. But for all that, you can't take my soul. :-)
Cryin' In The Rain - Take 2
Cryin' In The Rain - Take 2Hated the 1st mix on this, so here is an alternative. I gave it more of an edge, more bite and more bottom. I think it's an improvement. Enjoy!
Cryin' In The Rain
Cryin' In The RainSpeaks for itself.
Why Do You Hate Me
Why Do You Hate MeJust a little ditty.
Waiting On The Lord
Waiting On The LordGrungy, rather garage bandish. Waiting on Him can be frustrating and a little scary. Just have to keep the faith.
Run Rabbit, Run
Run Rabbit, RunWhen will I ever leave this place? When am I gonna see your face? Crawling on my hands and knees to find my way. Wondering if this night will ever turn to day. Don't know if I'll ever live to see the end. Something always drags me back to start again. I'm tryin' to find my way back home. Feels like I'm in this place alone. Coming 'round to find this lonely place again. Crawling down the hallway, ever to the end. Never should have listened to the demagogues. Howling in the distance, running from the dogs.
The Master Weaver
The Master WeaverThe hand that weaves space and time.
Winter Winter As autumn leaves are lost and swept away And winter's cold that's come is here to stay It seems to me that you're so far away. The skies of blue have gone and turned to gray. A life of ups and downs has come and gone. I fought the fight that no one's really won, Through all the good and bad and lonely times, For all the reasons lost and all the rhymes. I sit and stare and wander in a dream. So far away the distant echoes seem. My daily bread, they said, is here and now. The lights grow dim, I take my final bow. I know where I'm bound. I will be found Living, and I'm given a place Under His grace, Knowing the cold holds no fear. I'll shed no tear. Winter's here!
The GiftFirst John and then the Gift.
The HealerInspired by a story in the Bible, don't remember chapter/verse. My son Julien is singing lead, my daughter Lienne is doing the upper harmony/counter melody, and I took the lower harmony, barely audible (intensionally).
The Tripping Stone
The Tripping Stone
JerichoThis is a reference to the battle of Jericho as written in the Bible, a sort of "what if I were there"?
Demented - Remix
Demented - RemixJust beefed up the drums and bass. Brought up the strings a bit in places and lowered them in others. Changed how the song goes from creepy back to acoustic. Nothing big.
DementedThis came after a 2 week period caring for my dementia suffering father. It's heartbreaking watching someone you always loved and thought of as strong, vital, and invincible slowly being eaten away one bit at a time. It's an evil disease.
You KnowA little ditty I wrote for my wife of 30+ years while playing around in the studio.

So HighMy 2nd original. Had a lot to learn about mic placement. May redo the vocals at some point.
