about

"This album was recorded on a handheld tape recorder and mixed through my iPhone on Garageband. Each song has different meaning to me but generally this album wasn't created to take itself too seriously because I certainly don't. I like simple, fun, and easy-groovin' music so I hope this group of songs reflects that and if you're listening I hope you enjoy the tunes."

Track Name: Mississippi Rain
I wrote a book I couldn't read
I saw a bird I couldn't reach
I wrote a book I couldn't read
I saw a bird I could't reach
But I didn't care
I didn't stare
You make it all the way to the Mississippi Rain!

Jesus is calling his army
Oh great son of God is calling his clan
I can't deny the inner words of this
Bird that's flying over my head
But I still don't care
I still don't stare
You make it all the way to the Mississippi Rain

Brandy I've been thinking what you said
I'm just a man waiting to be fed
You can't deny my face for a
Goddam disgrace!
Track Name: Reasoning With a Troll
John said ya wanted to know
How to form the letter
I don't know what to tell ya sonny

Guess we'll go straight to the show
Leo's playing the big one tonight
Says he's saying goodbye
Doesn't Know what time
He's ending..tonight

Next is the harvest season
Careful not to burn your tongue
I'm not commanding, I'm just recommending
Ohh walking underground
Sure we're a long way off
Johnny's stride is falling down
Doesn't know what time
He's startin..tonight

I took my time
I've reasoned wisely with the troll
Track Name: Losing My True Love
It was a light inside my head, my head
Inside my head I saw that she was wronged
And she was lost inside my bed, my bed
And down the hall I gave a sigh that it was off
But she didn't die
It made her strong
Then she was gone

You make a mess before you start a fight
And now that fight is gone and we're left up to test
All that's lost
She makes a throne on laps of other guys

Oh Oh
Oh Oh

And can you help me? Can you spare a thought?
Did I do that well for loosing my true love?
Track Name: Working at a Hotel
Alone I fall
Watching them all
Asking for pieces to
Take away the
Pain out to see
Having some tea

But if people so lonely want nothing more
Than to see me struggling on the floor

Love the smiles
What is it for?
Period of rest
Becomes the best part
Love oh so far
More I get up

But if people so hungry want nothing more
Than to see me struggling on the floor
But if people so lonely want nothing more
Than to see me struggling on the floor
Track Name: For Love
To start to answer
What all your love has done for me
It pulls my thoughtless head
Back into its symmetry
Just take another step
Out into a walk back home
And then you'll see me rest
Eyes shut closed but body warm

Do do do do
Do do do do

For love you get your pick
Twinkled glance a beautiful sight
I'm hiking up brand new steps
I need ya babe if that's alright

Do do do do
Do do do do
It's true
Do do do do
Track Name: He Comes and Goes, Dear
Driving by with my mouthpiece on my side
It is cold and rainy dear, don't let me see those tears
I know ya need a distraction from him
He doesn't really want to see you smile

Running high said ya don't know where to go
Mouth is running dry with angle eyes out in the snow
And you can't realize what you're doing here
Another one for mere satisfaction never lives a day ahead

But don't you think about the doorway
Focus on your steps in the hallway
Don't you think about the doorway
Focus on your steps

So you move away forget your name, have a good time
Live it off make all the days worth staying
Not a text from me nor anyone who helped ya shape that path
Just a humble life of believing someone else can take those tracks
Smell the good stuff
Smell the good stuff
(mmm)
Smell the good stuff

Don't you think about the doorway
Focus on your steps in the hallway
Don't you think about the doorway
Focus on your steps
