about

A song a day for a year starting December 16th, 2011 December 15th, 2011. There are fourteen volumes of 25 songs each. This is volume four. You can download the albums for free by putting "0" in the "name your price". I'm not looking to make any money from any of this. It is completely for personal growth and my need to share the music that I make. Thank you for being apart of this project by listening.

you could be off in the desert
you could be on in the mountains
you could be up in the black trees
you could be down with irreverence


the fire truly licking at your legs
the bird that keeps her eye out for the eggs
a cadence in the fervor of the wind
can surely make you miss the cold again

you could be off in the desert
you could be on in the mountains
you could be up in the black trees
you could be down with irreverence

i never meant it when i said i loved you
i was just playing out the hand
a cadence in the fervor of the wind
can surely make you miss the cold again
Track Name: 03-01-12
i found my golden pen today
in the arms of the revolution
swaying back and forth
like a pendulum of motion

the last ones come over me
beckoning beckoning my rise
when i saw reckoning in the eyes of my love
when i saw reckoning in the eyes of my love

a golden symphony
tall tales
passed through the trees
looking down
i put on my shoes
and leave

he last ones come over me
beckoning beckoning my rise
when i saw reckoning in the eyes of my love
when i saw reckoning in the eyes of my love

How To Turn the Bible Into an Electric Guitar (five song conceptual piece)

god came from the heavens
he was asking how my soul's been
i said oh no i've given it
away for higher virtues

i've given it to the music
i've given it to the people
i've given it to the music
i've given it to the people

the trees outside my window and
the birds inside their cages
i worry about losing them
i'll worry for the ages

i've given it to the music
i've given it to the people
i've given it to the music
i've given it to the people

God stood in front of the line
offering angelic wine
he said you're doing fine
you're doing what i wanted

give it away to the music
give it away to the people
give it away to the music
give it away to the people

but he warned me of wasting myself on the wind
so i never looked back at the beautiful end
that i wanted so much that i begged for in vain
that i'd sell all my life for just to see you again
Track Name: 03-03-12
for i knew it was a plastic cut out
for i knew it was a cardboard dream now
i'm chasing the holy saints now
to be chasing the crop and the cream now

for i knew in the back of my mind
as i finished angelic god wine
for i knew in the back of my mind
as i finished angelic god wine
Track Name: 03-04-12
he said im sorry your dead
i was lost in your eyes as you past
well you must understand
where you started is not where you last
you are holding the cup in your lap
gazing down into it's answers
you are holding the cup in your lap
in search of the ghost that you lost
you are holding the cup in your lap
the ivory always commands us
Track Name: 03-07-12
all along the way
you held your mothers arm
expecting it to drop a little lower

flowing summer hair
i met you in the calm
before the winter months of separation

darling
i must be on my way
i want to be free

mothers and fathers
sons and the daughters
this family tree
it needs to be watered
yeah it needs some sunlight
it needs to be re-potted

growing closer
to the gates of eden
following footsteps brought me down to reason

growing closer
to the gates of eden
following footsteps brought me down to reason

looking back
i found out how to see it
looking back
i found out how to breath
looking back
i found out how to smile
looking back
i think ill be alone for a while

old henry was brave as a hound
but he wasn't about this old cave he had found himself in
though they called him old henry
he wasn't a memory but a timeless and ageless being

he was nearing the end of his days, although
the world had hurt him in several ways
the end of his days in a cave, although
he hated the damp and the dark, my friend

he hated the damp and the dark, my friend
he hated the damp and the dark and the end

bravery contest
how the sun lost the west
golden gods there lost it all on days like this

bravery contest
how the sun lost the west
all i knew was i did not know where i was

going over
going over the details in my head
falling off the next cliff
falling off the next cliff of thought

rolling over
i am rolling you over in my mind
cant wait to see you next time
cant wait to see you next time
Track Name: 03-15-12
my feet they see the future
and my eyes they see the past
but the center of my body
well i wonder, will it last

i saw the leaves
in the morning
through the window

stopping to wonder
if the summer had left them
i discovered
in the open door
all the leaves had disappeared
all the leaves had disappeared
Track Name: 03-16-12
i know a way out
i know a way out they dont

all i ever knew
all i ever wished for gone

given me all
the works
forgive me now
you'll never know

i wonder
if your still over the way side

i miss your eyes
the way that they looked at the sunrise
Track Name: 03-17-12
im watching your car
driving off in the distance
i wish it would turn around

i've seen all the pretty girls
drinking in the bars
i remember chasing them
in fields before the cars

all of us died at seventeen
our mothers cried at thirty
feeling for rocks in my pockets

i've seen all the college bound
chasing them now
or forever
for no reason
for all the reasons

too many hurt me in battle
i bled out in so many cars
i let out my soul right before though
and now i just float around
at the speed of sound

i watched your car
drive off in the distance
it never turned around

turning my head i walked down to the depths of the ocean
frowning and crying i watched myself drowning and dying
but all the sea creatures they thought i had come down from heaven
they lifted my body my soul carried it to and island
where i met the answers and where i threw out all the questions
Track Name: 03-18-12
looking out my window
going out the door
i find the world killing me
more and more and more

i need indication
or maybe separation
from the masses that i see out on the streets

give me some sedation
from a lowly occupation
where the people are but mad and always lonely

looking for my house keys
i never had a car
i always made sure
i didn't live very far

but there's the devils cobwebs
filling up the entry way
i sweep them out cant take it anymore

i need indication
or maybe separation
from the masses that i see out on the streets

give me some sedation
from a lowly occupation
where the people are but mad and always lonely
Track Name: 03-19-12
sorrow man
i didnt know that man
worried man i didnt know that man
all i knew was i did what i could
he said into his empty hands as he died
Track Name: 03-20-12
over there
ivory green was the cloud making factory machine
toppling over and toppling under our noses
i lit a match and i got the hell out of the cavern
good luck chasing dreams underwater
Track Name: 03-21-12
gone is the softest morning air
like a corkscrew effect
on a dark silhouette

gone are the summer nights we spent
they were lost on your eyes
they were lost on my eyes

still it all remains the same
watching the grass blades in the moonlight
still it all remains the same
a year ago today i almost died

gone is the softest morning air
it was lost on your eyes
it was lost on my eyes

still it all remains the same
watching the grass blades in the moonlight
still it all remains the same

dreaming in my bed
summers in the backyard
watering the plants
tending to the garden

she's dreaming now instead
dreaming of the french doors
in the library
sleeping on the floor

the girls sleep in saloons
the boy sleep in the attic

oh poison
i felt it in the air
oh poison
who is more
unseen
and protected

dreaming in my bed
summer's in the backyard
the girls sleep in saloons
the boys sleep in the attic

i find a crack between the walls and squeeze inside
they are not going to kill you they say
i hold a terrified nine year old child
unbearable silence in the cracks in the walls

the boy goes limp and i follow in the death of a dream
