about

I am happy to say that I have finally completed my second solo album (as you are obviously aware of if you are reading this). I have been working on the material as well as the recording for this album for quite some time now (especially considering my first solo album “Mouth” was released in 2003). It is very similar to my first album in the sense that these are a compilation of songs written over the past 6 to 7 years. I started recording the album the second time around (long story) in January 2012. The album was completely self-produced, engineered, and performed by myself at Nasty Cactus Studio in Las cruces NM

Track Name: Send A Message To The Outside
Send a message to the outside I’m lost in my mind set me free the loneliness overwhelms so here I am stuck in hell the voices finally stopped left me in a state of shock if it brings me down then im closer to the end drifting on the air nothing ever could compare if it gets my by then ill learn to live again send a message to the outside the world i dispise let me be your world is filled with pain so quick to throw away when im down on the ground kick me around im like the sun i come up every time i could never relate i could never pretend i was not like the other ones fixing their tie and polish their shoes and get in line try to believe try and deny and get in line something inside feels like it died cant get away from the when and the why nothing to hide it’s all about time give it away get me out of my mind
Track Name: Meek Beneath The Clouds
He rises meek beneath the clouds
But all alone he cries out loud
The pain is deep within his soul
On waves of panic, lose control
The Flash of light and darkened sky
The force of nature flies on high
And all that was no longer lives
Simply no life left to give

Noone~~x2
We live, then we die
We die, then we live

He wanders aimlessly around
No sign of others to be found
The darkness never goes away
It follows closer everyday
He molds its shape from tattered rags
Igniting deeper inner man
Lift it up and let it shine
Memories are hard to find
Track Name: You Are My Home
No matter where I am
No matter where I go
I know that there's one place
will always be my home
There's a candle in the window
a light above the door
You're my angel in waiting
The voice in the storm

You are my home
No matter how far I will roam
You are my home
A place of safety, a place of hope
You are my home

No Matter what I do
I'll always trust in you
You're the one that I run to
When my world turns blue
You're the spark in my memory
The skip in my step
The light that accepts me
when I lose my grip
Track Name: Underwater
I've been wild, and I've been weary
I've taken my life into my own hands
I've been way down, as far as you can go now
and I don't need any sympathy

I said I don't need your sympathy
I've got pity of my own
You know I'm going to be my destiny
theres no other way for me to go

You know I can’t, breathe under water
It’s just like you always said
A friend is so hard to find

I can’t pretend to be like you
Theres certain things that I can’t do
You know I can’t pretend not to be myself
I wouldn’t want to be anybody else
Track Name: Giving It All To You
it seems i can have it all i believe and take the fall how long have i been waiting giving it all to you no time has ever been wasted giving it all to you you're sweet and so inspiring giving it all to you come clean its all overstated giving it all to you holding me now teaching me how trying to find my way softly the sounds i can;t keep my feet on the ground i cant hear a word you say
Track Name: Lost
i can make my own decisions i can take it all way no need for more provisions it doesn’t matter anyway i dont need anyone i cant conceed to your thoughts i will be the same as everyone i will be lost i dont care what the reason it just brings it back again its impossible to listen if you wont let it in i dont need anyone i cant conceed to your thoughts i will be the same as everyone i will be lost
Track Name: Steal The Glow
In the light, watch her shine
Steal the glow, then you'll know
it seems the pain, has gone today
From the top, the view won't stop
Take the blow, then you'll know

There's a sinking feeling and a fear inside
Wrestle with the knowledge of the passing time
It's gone so fast...so make it last

Soon the world, will see that the time has come
Behind the girl, the only one
it is the way, it's gone today
This house of straw, is bound to fall

There's a sinking feeling in the world today
struggle with perceptions of her dying day
It's gone so fast...so make it last

Faith...fallen, full of grace
Like the world on your back
Home...Feel the breeze, gentle and serene
Like the waters so clean
Hope...steal the glow, A solitary soul
With the dreams of the past
Fame...cold hard shame, one more heart to break
And the wheels roll on, the fear goes on
the tears roll on and on
Track Name: In The Gutter
Ive slept in empty gutters ive walked down empty streets ive felt their gazes burning a hole inside of me if i could hear their whispers i could fix it all but i cant even hear them singing so i cant have it all its my life I can sit and drink my memories away take my time and just listen to the sounds that wash the day Ive seen my angels burning ive watched my heroes fall but there’s no sense in giving so I just take it all its my life I can sitand drink my memories away take my time and just listen to the sounds that wash the day
Track Name: Running Out Of Road
I’ve been running for so long it seems I’m running out of road
I know it’s time that I should face the truth and find my way back home
I can’t stop now the highway’s rolling fast beneath my feet
But I know if I don’t turn back now I’ll never see your face again

Now I can see the road ahead so clearly laid right before me
I put the pedal to the floor, no fear no more, I’ll take it head-on
I can’t stop now the highway’s rolling fast beneath my feet
But I know if I don’t turn back now I’ll never see your face again

Said I’m gone and I’ll never look back
Heading down a one-way track
Track Name: I Never Tried
im out of here said id never leave but ive got to go now i told you everything but you can’t believe any word i say now but its true i never lied to you yes its true i never tried its over now i found myself a way far away from you now said id never leave but ive got to go just to save you but its true i never lied to you yes its true i never tried now i know my way in this crazy world and im lucky to be alive now i know my way and i see clear and im happy to be alive but its true i never lied to you yes its true i never tried
Track Name: Highway Song
The highway long and tough makes a man rise above calm and patient hiding away how can i find another way cause ive been afraid and i need a way to find my way and make her stay its my way or the road i cant be all that you need or all that you know so take it as it comes i dont know what’s down the road or does anyone
