Everybody's got something in the closet,
• Looking For a Little
One day in a park in Schenectady NY, I was
pretty quick to judge some guy I met while setting on a park bench.
He looked pretty wild and wasn’t smelling too hot. After talking
for a while, I thought I had spoken with Jesus.
• ...You •
Just something that came out of my mouth while
the tape was rolling.
• Strange Love •
It struck me a little odd one day that considering all those years
growing up with my family, I didn't really know any of them.

This song is about my buddy Joey. Is this story true? Yes, mostly
I took some liberties with the reason why Joey was
shot. The real reason was too disturbing for me to sing about. Some
folks back home might not appreciate that. However, I wanted to make
a point about violence and how it can escalate and while doing that
I thought I would make Joey more like I remembered him. Apparently
I didn't know Joey either.
• A Little Morning Peace
On the road to recovery after a terrifying diagnosis. I was experiencing
euphoria as a result of taking steroids. It was amazing to get
up 4 -5 am in the morning feeling invincible, ready to do just
about anything. The world seems so different in the wee hours.
I wrote this song through that period. I'm sorry to say that the
euphoria lasted about three weeks. It was hell after that.
• A Day Finé •
Sometimes lyrics get in the way. You want to hear the voice and you
want to hear the melody. Focusing on more than that is just a bit
distracting. Sort of like listening to Brazilian music if you don't
know any Portuguese. You just love that sound. So I just took some
vocal sounds and had some fun.
• Nothing Yet •
I just wanted to play a little bit.
• Canvas •
The days and nights in a life of a painter.
• Next Time •
Reincarnation? When I die I'd like to come back as a bird.
• No Matter What You
No matter what obstacles stand in your way of progress, you’re
going to keep pushing. A cliché at best. But clichés
serve a purpose. And I need to keep reminding myself of this.
• Dreaded Days •
The perils of going to art school. I did enjoy the classes.
• Never Say Never •
A friend of mine (a fellow musician) asked me to play a song at his
wedding. He's going to be happily married forever after, because
he certainly won't ask me to play another wedding after this.
