about

First album submitted to the National Solo Album Month competition. The whole writing and recording process took place over the single month of November 2014. Found the old mixes and dusted them off a bit.

This record was conceived during a day trip to the Delaware River, just outside of Philadelphia.

Track Name: Sinking Ship
Oh don't mind me
I'm really not that great
I'm really not all what I seem to be
Being away from you, girl
It breaks my heart in two
You pull me down, yea
Fast into the sea

Oh girl, you paint me like a blurry photograph
As if that ever made sense
Of the boy you want me to be
Standing in the rain
Taking different trains
You pull me down, yea
Fast into the sea

We're all on some kind of sinking ship
There's no way off of it
Forever and ever

The captain has drowned
The sail no longer flown
We're going down
We can stand around
The cracks they have been split
We're going down

Oh say it ain't so
We really have to go
We're hurrying but running out of time
Watch the water flow
Overhead and down below
You pull me down, yea
Fast into the sea

Well maybe I'm getting tired of being by myself
Maybe I'm getting scared of what will lie ahead
And maybe I'm in denial
Of being who I truly am
Just another specimen

The Delaware and everywhere
Is flowing down the opposite way

It's times like these I tend to ask myself
What am I doing here?
And where do I belong?
I'm immobilized with fear
Track Name: Runaway
Go on home, you might as well
Tell me all about how you fell
Off the roller coaster tracks
When you were twelve
Your daddy stuck a fork in your shoulder
To teach you how to become a man
He only cared when all of the money bled dry

Go on home, you runaway
Your mother's worried sick
And your father will pay
There's no way I'll let you stay here in the cold
Take it from me, I'm just a runner
Have to escape from out of the gutter
Go on home and save yourself a wasted life

And don't you ever run away at all
Track Name: If I Should Fall
Under the Whitman, the Benjamin Franklin
The old vacant houses have rotten out well
It's the home of the poverish
The land of the regects
And I'm not so sure I could step in their cell
Or anywhere near at all
For if I should fall now
It's where I deserve to belong
And stay forever

My chest feels like beehives
All buzzing 'round inside
Yea, I've heard some stories if you couldn't tell
Hear me, just get me to Philly
I don't want to be part of industrial hell

If I should fall would you catch me
Hold out your arm and save me
If I should fall would you help me
Get off my feet once again
They're starting to feel a bit numb
I'm not in control of myself
Without you the deed will be done

Or anywhere farther away
Keep me inside of my bubble
And then never speak of this place
And stay away forever please
Track Name: In Heaven (Everything Is Fine)
In Heaven, everything is fine
You've got your good things, and I've got mine
Track Name: Medusa, Medusa
And I can see right through that god awful disguise
From the moment that I looked into your eyes
Medusa, you've got me by the hair
And with that tantalizing stare
I turn into a statue once again

Medusa, Medusa
Your head is plastered on Athena's shield
Medusa, Medusa
You reign of terror rises once again
Oh once again

And in the garden late at night you will arrive
With that hardened, blackened heart that you were assigned
Medusa, whisper in my ear
And you will shed another tear
As I turn into a statue once again

Medusa, whisper in my ear
And you will shed another tear
As I turn into a statue once again

Medusa, Medusa
Your head is plastered on Athena's shield
Medusa, Medusa
Your reign of terror rises once again
Medusa, Medusa
The snakes have gotten well inside your skull
Medusa, Medusa
Your reign of terror rises once again
Oh once again

Your reign
Track Name: Medicated Lullabies
And you will sing to me your medicated lullabies
Track Name: Little Girl (You're Breaking Me Down) / Sinking Ship Reprise
Close your eyes, little girl
And open yourself to imagination
Colors light up the open water
Tumbling down the spotted walkways
That you have come to know
I've been there myself you know
Little girl, can't you see
You are the only one for me
And when the Earth shatters apart
Then we find ourselves secluded and alone
Secluded and alone

You're breaking me down
And you're breaking yourself
Track Name: Shades of Blue
Our skies, they paint a different shade
Of a different blue that's here for you
And in the atmosphere, a way away from here
A way away from me
An open plane of particles
Of solar flares and satellites
A whole new world we can unfold
So there's no reason why we shouldn't go

You make me feel as if I am floating
You make me feel like I can fly
On a rocket built for two
Through our different shades of blue

I thought that this wouldn't happen
I though you couldn't be real
I thought I'd be by myself
But now it feel so surreal
