about

i've smothered these songs long enough. they are probably perfect, they deserve to be let out.

---------------

this page is for people who feel this music deserves to be paid for. I'm ashamed to ask for money so it will also be available for free at other outlets.

UPDATE: paypal is not liking me so just get the download from soundcloud.

Track Name: i would love you
if you can't allow these things
if you can't allow this kind of love to go on
if you chase this kind of love inside
what would i do?
i would love you

if you put me in my place
if you put me in my place where i belong
if you turn around and criticize the status that i lack
what would i do?
i would love you

i know it's hard to be so
when the cynic in you is telling you to let go
but if you empathize with other lives
when no one else comes through
what would they do?
they would love you
Track Name: the promise of chance
the hippies all had dreams
but greed was growing hungry and it ate them all
and if i had to wager
this generation is on its own
the baby boomers failed
and the greatest generation
could only beat them back for a decade or so
ambition is an engine
their war machines are ready to go

you had the promise of chance to change things
you failed to see that promise through
so hand it down to the next ones

there's a madness in this world
there's a craziness and cruelty in your neighborhood
and if i had to gamble
maybe we are on our own
it may be that i'm wrong
it may be that you feel fine
as the seas change to the east
you are resolute
in the place that you call home
the truth with stare you straight in the face
and tell you

you had the promise of chance to change things
you failed to see that promise through

when i lose control
automate my soul
i won't mind
i won't mind at all
if the promise of chance is passed on

you are my waiting car
fear that makes me hard
you
you are my waiting car
there in the parking lot
you

and though the promise of chance is over
i'd take another chance with you

when i lose control
automate my soul
i won't mind
i won't mind at all

when corporate drones
data-mine my bones
i hope they hear this on their phones
and hand it down to the next ones
Track Name: overcame the sun
sleep comes easy when i'm by your window
and nothing takes me further from the world
past all the factories past all the city lights
deep inside the woods we go
i was hoping you would see it too

so i
overcame the law
overcame the sun
overcame them all
when over came the sun to solve the night

dreams come crazy when i least expect it
but nothing shakes me, wakes me from my life
past undeniable, now unavoidable
what on earth could we all do?
i was saving some of it for you

so i
overcame the law
overcame the sun
overcame them all
when over came the sun to solve the night

i will find a path to you
if i have to smash through walls
i will make my way to you
if i have to overcome them all

please let this be something
let this be real
please let me not wake up
let this go on
hold on Baby
stay with me here
hold on Baby
to your broken heart

you always said
you'd take the love you had
beyond the end

so i
overcame the law
overcame the sun
overcame them all
and overcame the sun to solve the night

i will find a path to you
if i have to smash through walls
i will make my way to you
if i have to overcome them all
Track Name: it isn't love
i've met enough people to know
get someone wrong and you might not think
that they're wanting
for that one thing
finding what your heart assumes
with lonely girls in empty rooms
would it kill you to spend the night alone
waiting for your life at home

it isn't love but it's something
and it'll have to do
until the one thing that i really need
comes hunting me
how i wish it was you

i've seen enough in my days
to know just how much hurt you find
in search of that one thing
you've been wanting
sublimation has its way
of burning off a lonely day
it may be you're wrong
for holding out so long

it isn't love but it's something
and it'll have to do
until the one thing that i really need
comes hunting me
how i wish it was you

there were times in my life
i had thoughts in my mind
i could never say to you
Track Name: a spring fuck you
stayin inside
it's gone on for too long
it's been a thing since i could sing
it's been a long since i could song
spring has sprung
winter's gone

this time
i'm right
come out into the light
get loose and sing along
if the night's nights too late
all alone
but the stars did say
"i could save you too"
to me

you old thing
catching things on photo film
but when the silence rings
your solitude rings too
when silence rings
(your) solitude rings true
i could be there with you

this time
i'm right
come out into the light
get loose and sing along
if the night's nights too late
all alone
but the stars did say
"i could save you too"
to me

why can't you feel
what waits outside the walls you live in
why can't you hear me calling
love like a mom
loves all her babies
so don't be selfish now

this heart of stone i failed to move
i washed hands and heart of you
you stayed inside
but failed to ruin my mind
cos see, i won't feel like this
Track Name: pound your town to hell
the castle fell to cannons
in a war long before
you were ever born
at least that's what they say

you couldn't believe it
they brought their heavy words down like a hammer
and beat your heart to life

and you were never the same again

now
we drift through the forest
we wander the landscape
we thunder and lightning
we rumble and we scrape
in search of a story
like our grandfathers tell
so we've come from the valley
to pound your town to hell

cut down near the ruins
where they lay still today
you will never know
but that's not your concern

the spirit you hear it
you mount your suicide machine
with a kick you
bring the beast to life

this was never gonna end well

cos
we drift through the forest
we wander the landscape
we thunder and lightning
we rumble and we scrape
in search of a story
like our grandfathers tell
so we've come from the valley
to pound your town to hell
