about

I wrote these songs during some emotional times in my life so they mean a lot to me and I can only hope that they make some sort of impact on you. Our perception of anything is distorted, even of something that we see every day. Even of something as simple and beautiful as the sunrise.

Track Name: We're Not Normal
I spent the first part of my life just laying inside,
I thought that I was happy but I was just being careless
Cause when I looked up and saw the sunlight,
That’s what I realized
I’d wasted my time.

And it was raining,
Oh how I started laughing,
You know I’d never seen water come down from the sky.
So I jumped straight out the window,
Fell right to the ground,
And made such a lovely sound.

My only regret
Was missing the puddle of water to the left.
And I wept,
I never slept,
Never slept again.

Trust me I've never seen a sight,
As pretty as your eyes,
And I've seen a rainbow before.
I've climbed a mountain,
Crossed a prairie easy as can be.
I’ve swam an ocean,
Scared and broken,
But you’re the one that took my breath away.

My only regret
Was passing you in the hallway,
When I could have slept
With you by my side.

When the rain tapped on my window,
I opened up the blinds.
And as I leaned against my pillow,
The sun shone through my heart.

I may love when the sky is blue,
But not as much as I love you.
And I may love the forest and fresh air,
But not as much as I love the feeling of your hair.
Track Name: What Can I Say?
The landscape of time and space.
I could never pretend
That we weren't lost two hours ago.

Oh, I wish that I
Didn't take all of your
Advice.

Our thoughts have been brought to fame,
Your game is over.
The man is gone,
And with him all my clovers.

What have we come to?
Nothing.
We'd forgotten ourselves.

Oh, I wish that I
Didn't take all of your
Advice.

Our thought have been brought to fame,
Your game is over.
The man is gone,
And with him all my clovers.
Track Name: The End of the World
They say that Y2K
Will bring destruction upon us
As though we were made from clay.
But I think that I know better
I know that little black holes will tear us apart,
Like scissors being taken to a sweater.

So how many times must we be shown
That everything will be okay?
And I think that all those naysayers
Will just rue the day
When the sun comes up and starts
Another day.

Oh Robert Frost predicted that the world would end
In Fire and Ice.
Harold Camping cried for rapture,
We're still here,
Maybe next time he'll think twice.

Halley's comet didn't kill us,
The Jupiter Effect didn't kill us,
Our existence hasn't been concluded,
All those doomsayers are just stupid.

So how many times must we be shown
That everything will be okay?
And I think that all those naysayers
Will just rue the day
When the sun comes up and starts
Another day.

The only threat to ourselves,
It seems,
Is just ourselves.
Track Name: Sad Genie
If I had one more wish,
I'd wish for
Her to be
As happy as me...
Track Name: It's a Glass Sea, Ling
Drifting swiftly through the lake thinking,
Just how I could stop my ship from sinking.
I was lost...
I'd found myself but at what cost?

When the ripples subsided,
What was left of me?

Drifting swiftly through the lake thinking,
Just how I could stop my ship from sinking.
I was lost...
I'd found myself but at what cost?

When the ripples subsided,
What was left of me?

And I said, "I can't believe
Just how I happened to come home again."
Track Name: Breadbowl Mug
Let the waves of wisdom
Sweep me smoothly
'Cross the kingdom of truth and truly
Lessen the layers,
Dry the drains,
And soothe the sayers of proliferating pains.

My voice has vanished.
It's been replaced by the constant beating of my heart.
My mind wanders only to you.
What makes me worth your time?
I guess I don't have a clue.

Fumbling through the cavern of sighs
I fell into your enchanting emerald eyes.

My voice has vanished.
It's been replaced by the constant beating of my heart.
My mind wanders only to you.
What makes me worth your time?
I guess I don't have a clue.

I can't say the sun
Has missed me much,
But it sure shined brighter
When it found your touch.

And who could blame the moon,
For arriving just a bit too soon
To greet you?
Track Name: Relationship Problems(Metal Pillow)
In my dreams,
You're wide awake.
Am I asleep in yours?

'Cause sometimes
It feels
Like you do not
Want to be around me.

Questions fly through my mind...

But I know,
Cause your voice
Rings true
In my head,
That love is the answer.

So don't tell me
That you
Don't feel it.
Track Name: The Bitter Cold
People ask me, "What's the rush?"
And I'll just say, "I'm cold."
So sick of dealing with things
That can't be controlled.

Blue mat miseries,
Lying on the floor.
Wet, dirty, and shaken,
Underneath the door.

I mean, the point is this:
I have an opinion.
I just want
To kiss you.

We're all so polarized,
It's just part of being human.
That's what brought me back,
Just that simple fact
That no matter our differences,
We're all the same.
Maybe not our names
Or our preference of games,
But you and I
Have little reason to complain.

I don't need notes to express myself,
But they help.
