about

It is the dawn of a new era...Cars fly, Televisions are Telephone Screens and Remote Controls Rule the School. The farther we fly into the future, the further back I feel we must reach to connect with just what it is that we are made of. The elements that make us who we are and what allow for us to develop our SOUL POWER. It is in this hotbed of dawn-of-time dreamwalking, that conjurs up the lyrical and melodic content for my new EP - "CHILD OF FIRE". Through the filter of future sounds I hope to capture some of the origins of inner thought - asking questions with this music - What if we were Wrong ? Are We Gonna last 4eva? and answer some of my own internal questions with a call to arms for the years to come - "Take your eyes off the man you'll never know, Shake your life 'fore the feeling leaves your hold, It's your time, It's your mind, lying naked waiting patiently no more, when you see it come..."

Track Name: Common
COMMON

Look into the eye of the man at the liquor store
He ain't budgin'
He's no surgeon
Looking to the time when the blinds will be raised no more
He ain't burnin'
No beast of burden

Look into the eye of the bride as she breaks once more
She ain't perfect
Is nothing perfect?
Cryin' at the sight of the child she can make no more
She ain't burnin'
Her world keeps turnin'

Down in the cloud
Drowning it out
Hungry for something
Nothing for nothing
Down in the cloud
Drowning it out

Take your eyes off the man you never know
Shake your life 'fore the feeling leaves your hold
Its your time
Its your mind
Lyin' naked waiting patiently no more
When you see it come

Look to the eye of the sky that will rain no more
somethings comin'
i can hear it hummin'
shy is the mind that is blind and will wake no more
you got something in common
you got nothing in common

Down in the cloud
Drowning it out
Hungry for something
Nothing for nothing
Down in the cloud
Drowning it out

Take your eyes off the man you never know
Shake your life 'fore the feeling leaves your hold
Its your time
Its your mind
Lying naked waiting patiently no more
When you see it come
Track Name: 4EVA
4EVA

Ten times a morning
I'm looking around I'm yawnin'
Still kicking round the worst thing
Tried to jump out my bed I'm limping

Ten times a morning
Can't find myself I'm yawning
Lookin' round this room for something
Something i must have forgotten

Ten times a morning
I'm itchin' inside I'm boring
I'm losin' my iron will,man
Heart's grown thinner than the Tin Man

Before you tell me
We gonna last forever
Before you sell me
On the world be flat 4EVA

Ten times a morning
Can't find myself I'm yawning
Lookin' round this room for something
Something i must have forgotten

Before you tell me
We gonna last forever
Before you sell me
On the world be flat 4EVA
Track Name: I Might Be Wrong
I MIGHT BE WRONG

I might be wrong
When I lead you on
When I take your only song
And leave you half way gone

I might be wrong
When I drop the Angel bomb
but what's good goes on
and the creeps keep creeping on

Cause i seen your glass shattered on your floor
Your blood-stained past raining down your door
And the Music laughs just beyond your core
But I might be wrong

I might be wrong
When I trade your heart for soul
But its time you know
The world you hold below

I might be wrong
When I lead you from faded prom
But the beat goes on
And the pearls keep pearlin' on

Cause i seen your glass shattered on your floor
Your blood-stained past raining down your door
And the music laughs just beyond your core
But I might be wrong

Something's burning out
Time's come to call ya
Words cant work it out
Fire cross the water
Something's calling out
Cries from the caller
Words can't work it out
Fire ...

I might be wrong
When I drop the Angel bomb
But whats good goes on
And the creeps keep creepin' on
Track Name: Don't Matter Much
DON'T MATTER MUCH

I close my eyes
You close the door
You’re closing in
The ghost we store
You’re off again
you're off your mind
You’re off your head
You’re all my time

But it don’t matter much.

You gave you’re life
You gave your breath
You gave your word
You’re caving in
You came in first
And truth be told
We watched the birth of kingdom gold

But it don’t matter much.

Third time a week I’ve been waiting up for something, Love
Smoke signals lost in the crossing of your shady love
Chargin' round the room Ive been thinking of the words you shove
Burnin' out my eyes its not enough
Its neva ‘nough and
Third time a week I’ve been calling out from something now and
Somebody’s throwing a golden cow to hold me down
Look it in the eye and tell me how we work this out
Shine on you crazy diamond and face the crowd

I took your hand
you shook my mind
I took your heart
Your diamond mine
Its nothing much
Its just itself
Just trophy dust
On heavens shelf

But it don’t matter much.
Track Name: Heartbeat
HEARTBEAT

Stand beyond
Stand beyond me
Your cradles gone
Your home's gone homely
High above
Like or love me
Your crown is gone
So show your HEARTBEAT

Your tired from it all
You're stalling on Daydream
You're tearing through walls
You better not leave me
Your fire has gone
Your heart has gone lonely
In pain-pleasure's fall
Come fall down on me

What if we were wrong ?
What if we were wrong ?
What if we were wrong ?

Looking down on what you are
Track Name: Child of Fire
CHILD OF FIRE

Child of Fire
Child of Wind
Hold your Candles
Close to Skin
Child of Ashes
Child of Sand
Spin your Sacred Fire
In your Hand

The Last of Three
The Last to Leave
Scarlet Letter
Sewn Beneath
Crimson Castle
Crimson Joy
Sing your Steady
Rug Burn Till you Boil

Lady Rain, Rain it Down
Fire Lake, Take me Now
Lady Rain, in the Storm-light You Came
Lady Rain, Lay Me Out
