Wendy The songs on this album would be an excellent choice for an independent filmmaker to use as soundtrack material. It kind of has a "Donnie Darko" feel to it. Favorite track: Blood Sugar.

about

This is a collection of tracks I recorded, with help from some very special friends, in and around 2009ish. Some of these tracks were used for an independent film (Back Burns), but most of them were just sitting in my hard drive. These tracks were created during a very unique, troubled yet magical time in my life. Recently, I finally came to the conclusion that it would be a waste to not share them. All of these tracks hold a warm place in my heart and I hope others will feel the same way.

Track Name: Squares and Fractals
Drawing squares and fractals,
Don't think first, thought's an inherent human curse
A curse...
Curse all of our words...
They're evil, heh.

We can lift,
Lift it higher,
Above all thought and over the wire...
Wire, the wire, the wire, I'm so wired... how are you?
I'm fine.

It's alright, that's only the old ego.

Make an etch in tempo and space.
No need to run it's not a race.
Appreciate to breathe.
Let's all resolve to drop our wants and needs.

I know it's hard, cause we're humans,
With our crystal hearts and our demons...

They're evil and they're here.
Hope will even out the fear.
Inside us this battlefield...

It's alright, there seems to be some sort of balance.
Track Name: Julia Roberts #5 (Blood Sugar)
I can't deal this deck forever,
I gotta break loose and put on my rockin' noose.
Gotta find a pipe around, where I can slide down...
And end up on top.

Slow down, wait up, tomorrow comes to soon.

I can't dig this dirt forever,
I gotta pack up and put on my Sunday shoes.
Madam plays an awesome sound, I gotta find out...
Where she resides.

I hear that sound and it's comin' across the mountain...
Where they are all drinkin' from that fountain...

And so I've read, that stuff ain't too good for your...

...Blood sugar...
Track Name: Sea Bird
Three toes planted,
In moist sand.
Wiggle talon loose,
You know that you can.
Swim out through the water,
Just to look at the land.

Sea Bird.
Your wings are fine,
So why don't you fly?
Always find you floating or in sandy stride.

Turn over stones,
For the certainty,
Pecking dry bones,
Not very nourishing.
To carry food back,
Must not be wrong.
But if you ate (wait) there,
You might learn a new song.

Sea Bird.
Your wings are fine,
You don't fly,
Always find you floating or in sandy stride.

Seeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee...

Whoaowoawawowowawowowawowowahh.

It's all right,
It's okay.
You and your flock,
We have found a new way.
Transport,
But not in the sky.
Us fine feathered friends,
We have learned to drive.

Your wings are dry,
No need to fly.
Grab your keys, let's go for a ride.
Sea Bird...
Track Name: YSCUOTWU
Plant the seed, but don't bother to talk about the roots.
Words will only impede the meaning of the fruit.

Change will come, from inside to out.
Eyes open and always aware.
Please keep conscious, of the killer called doubt.
And do not dwell, but remember that it's there (please do not dwell)...
But remember it's...

Ahhhhhhhhhhh, Ohhhhhhhhhhh
Meow meow, dot... dot, meow meow dot dot, meow meow dot dot.
(oh boy!)

Plant the seed, but don't bother to talk about the roots.
Words will only impede the meaning of the fruit.

Change will come, from inside to out.
Eyes open and always aware.
Please keep conscious, of the killer (conked out) called doubt,
But remember that it's there (please do not dwell)...
Remember that it's there...
There, there.

[a mother's embrace]

Ahhhhhhhhhhh, Ohhhhhhhhhhh
Meow meow, dot... dot, meow meow dot dot, meow meow dot dot.

[a lion awakes]

Even expression like this, involves too much thinking,
But it's what we love, so let it flow (flood).
Gotta try to stop the light from sinking.
The proof in the pattern is here, all around.
The proof in the pattern is here, all around.

So let us play, let us pray... us please play with this pallet of
Sound, sound, sound, sound, sound, sound, sound, sound.

...........(not dead)
