Echo Park Tsunami
Echo Park TsunamiI wrote this song when I came back from a month in Thailand after the 2005 Tsunami. I met many people that were deeply affected by it. I had a mind opening/bending experience from it. The night before I left, I cut my 7-year dreads in the streets with a razor blade, well somebody cut them. I don't really remember that night or the plane ride home but.. After taking a cab from LAX, I discovered that my basement apartment had been flooded from a storm. The place was a mess, and so was I. As I put my hand on the my wall, I could see the water coming out of the walls like it was crying. I had been a pretty selfish little shit and I took this as a sign to change. So, I wrote a song about it.
All AlrightThis song is about the New Earth and the accepting of death and destruction as being part of life. It is also based of the Flower of Life books by Drunvalo Melchizedek.
More MorphineI use to go see Morphine play in the early days at a loft in downtown Boston called the Reservation. $5 and all the beer you could drink, a skateboard ramp, it was magical. I was blessed to have known Mark. He was innovative, super cool and one of a kind. This song features Dana Colley from Morphine on baritone sax.

Ballad for William Walker Atkinson
Ballad for William Walker AtkinsonBallad for William Walker Atkinson is the final song/mantra on the album Overcome. This is one of my favorite songs. It was based on an esoteric book that I was given in Guatemala. The book was The Kybalion. Everyone thought it had been written by the ancients (hermitic writings) because The Three Initiates were listed as the author. William was the true Author.
Time To Go
Time To GoEverybody lies, some people never try, everyone wants love, but in the end we die.
AkalThis song was written for my dear friend Gary Finneran. He was an amazing singer, songwriter, performer and a dear friend. He will be missed. Featuring Anne and Nick , from Tuscarora on backing vocals. Chanting Akal is said in the Kundalini Yoga tradition to help liberate the soul from the dense field of the earth, giving it a boost into the peace of the divine beyond. Akal means undying, and it is the truth of the soul. It means that there is no death, only liberation.
