Well you swear to hell you're a deeply changed man With your liar's smile as the money changed hands Well I must be blind if you're trying so hard 'Cos you're cuttin' lines on your shiny new heart You breathe air so polluted with lies It's a wonder of God that you're still alive And you move through your world with a step so light That nobody hears when You never get it right In your little white life.... You got a pack of cowards that's hunting you down And an army of shadows that follows you around But you dream bigger than anyone knows In some cheap motel while you're lying on the floor And you breathe air that's sharper than knives With your lovers and mothers, confessors and wives And you move through your world with a step so light That nobody hears when you never get it right In your little white life. And every new place you land is one more bridge to burn And every crossroads you pass is one less place to turn And every new friend you make is one more to betray And every lie you tell becomes truth in its own way..... You breathe air that's sharper...

Let my words so defend you From the still of your heart That you think of the reasons You became what you are There is more to this world boy Than your God ever planned You are looking for something That you don't understand And no matter what you do Or how far you go For as long as I'm with you You will hear no evil, see no evil, fear no evil..... Let my words so protect you From the soldier within That you place no importance On the depth of your sins You are more than the essence You are more than the need Let me lend you forgiveness When you don't quite believe.... No matter what.... Your love falls down upon its knees when you believe in nothing more than what you are when what you need is just too close for you to see..... There is more to this world.......

Wide Awake… I can’t get inside this world that is your fortress I don’t recognize the man you’ve become You are changing into something cruel and heartless And I can’t bear to see this happen to the one I love… If I could move you You know I’d try But the sea takes years to wear down stone and I just don’t have that much time… Someday you’ll lie awake You’ll lie there wide awake Someday you’ll lie awake Someday you’ll see – someday you’ll be Thinking of me… I don’t know how much your emptiness has cost you I can’t read between the lines around your eyes Tell me when exactly was it that I lost you Or were you like this all this time – and I just realized That I can’t reach you I’m giving up A heart of gold might touch your soul But mine is only flesh and blood… Someday you’ll feel my absence like an ache Someday you’ll realize you made a big mistake Someday you’ll feel the ghost of me at your side Someday somewhere somehow something will remind you….

Cool out baby – it’s the middle of the night And I promise, You’re right and I’m Wrong again…. Cool out baby – ‘cos I know you’re not alone – And I wouldn’t dare come over if I Need a friend…. In the eye of the storm – everybody’s tainted… I can keep you warm…. And I’m no saint – But I can’t walk And I can’t breathe And I can’t do anything anything anything And I can’t talk And I can’t sleep And I can’t do anything…. Without your love…. You belong to me… Cool out baby Did I ever treat you bad? ‘cos if you’re thinking you’ve been had Then why don’t you ask? Cool out baby – Things can’t really be so wrong – When you know you’re twice as strong as your sordid past…. In the eye of…….

In the markets, saviours sell their wares In the churches, merchants everywhere With TV shows and eyes of steel Exploding lights and Ferris wheels Heaven waits for all who can afford to pay Nothing really matters as I lay you down to sleep And you lay me down to sleep Our love Is a whisper that drowns the world. In the streets the people kneel and pray To Gods that don't hear them anyway And there you stand, oblivious To anything too serious All you need is someone who can lead the way.... Nothing really matters.... The pharisees and the scribes all wept Alexander saw there were no worlds left Jesus walked while the masses slept In dreams He knew He'd never get The words of love become the laws And the spirit deep within them lost And judgment reigns like the hand of God When all the Gods are gone.... And I lay you down to sleep.....

Bring me water - send a flood Who'd have thought the old man had so much blood? Send me pictures of the life I left in fear You give up this one thing... You can't keep my body here Round here You are not me You are not me You are not the kind of person I was hoping I could be..... What a question - Lies that march in two by two And now they're all useless - I realized it too soon So how are we even? Your talk of brassy dreams and beer Holds me silent While I rest my body here.... Round here.... down here.... you are not me..... When the hole gets deeper And the view gets smaller in the frame And it's not that easy To walk away and feel no shame And it burns much hotter But the way from here is twice as hard And I know you don't believe me... But you are not me

you are fire, I am ether - we could burn this city down don't you find it hard to breathe here With your feet so on the ground? let me count the ways i know you well… ways i can bring you to your knees after all this fighting it's hard to tell where you stand What is fantasy and why that don't apply to me… open wide for doctor show him the snakes inside your head what about after the aftershock riding all roughshod through your bed? you're like a crazy river dream that has no mouth and yet must scream out loud... no one tells you why they think the punishment fits the crime but it's hard time... i had a dream you were an orphan with raven hair and a killer's eyes shooting lovers down like morphine does that keep you satisfied? Let me count the ways i hate you now - Could make you hang your head in shame and after all this fighting - it's hard to tell who's to blame… And what is fantasy, and why that don't apply to me. or open wide.... cos it's hard time you know it's hard time...

maybe it’s only in my head i thought i heard music maybe my time’s too often spent on nothing but losing my keys in all my favorite bars around town i think i even lost my car but i got home safe and sound... it’s really pathetic – these stupid white flowers i want this more than that on my knees for hours screw freedom – screw justice – how childish i love it... one more time – just for me – anything i might believe... looking out the window at the real world crawling by what a f*ing nightmare: somewhere out there is a life... maybe it’s cos i think too much i just can’t forget it... maybe i’m so far out of touch – it hurts me to let it go when it’s the only thing i’ve got now i should know that when you get so high... you have to come back down... all i want is a heart harder to break all i need is a soul tougher to take cos my name is the child you loved to hate and my army is vast... my army is great...

Was I too unkind in my dealings with his heart? Wide awake tonight Most folks think I'm falling apart What if he already lies in another's warmer bed? No one's fault but mine - I can't say that I gave him my best He leaves me over and over again..... Stolen for all time Snapshot moments of his grace If I could only turn my mind From the memory of his face Oh but now my angel's found Some new passion for his soul Lay this heart in stony ground Where it belongs: in the cold.... He leaves...... I close my eyes and he's right there Like a ghost of a lie that was almost fair Such vicious words from a callous soul And I know I should but I can't let go.....

far away between the cracks and weeds all these hearts never more than needy never very far take them from your body pour them over your soul seize them like a brass ring but they'll never make you whole i wanna be so gone away i wanna be so gone away away away far away from here take it like forgiveness like a candle in the dark tell me why you'd even bother trying to hide what you are? I wanna be.... from right or wrong i wanna be all the way gone you twist it around and i wanna be all the way out.... far away.... i wanna be so gone away away away far away from here far away from here

about

A collection of woodshed demos. Most of these were intended to be scratchpads for formal, fully-arranged demos. Then life gets in the way and, for whatever reasons, they were not recorded.

So here's a big pile of my nineties: the ones that got away.

released April 1, 2020

I played, sang, wrote, and mixed all of this stuff on an old analog Tascam 488. It has been digitized using what technology was available at the time.
