about

A dynamic , to the point, riff rife tour that twists through a siphon of rock, soul, folk, post punk, new wave, country, blues and jazz. This solo debut was written through hard times and is an introspective crack in the crust of a haunted mans head while planting the occasional tongue in cheek.

Track Name: Hanging by a Hair
Hanging by a string is a beautiful thing
and its busy giving birth to all the birds that sing
Hanging up there is a bullet in the air
about to fall
Dangling From a string is a treacherous dream
and its busy giving birth to all the coins that gleam
your doom and gloom and your fathers old broom
can't win them all
Hanging by a hair is a beautiful thing
and its busy giving birth to all the birds that sing
Hanging up there is a bullet in the air
about to fall
Track Name: Sign it in Blood
I don't take anyone for their word
I'm a tough bitch
I don't make any deals with a handshake
thats for fools
Wanna make a Deal with me Baby ?
Better sign it in Blood.
Track Name: Kick me to the Wild
I'm so sick of me
I hate you too
I want to go to sleep and never wake up and I'm so sick of you.
Play your trick on me
You claim that you tried
Well I see you smiling sitting right next to me but you'll have me crawling til' I cry.
Break your switch on me for a man or a child
I can feel your boot in the back of me and you'll have it kick me to the wild.
Choose the time for me
you say I'm taking too long
I know I may not have done you right but I know that I have never done you wrong.
Treat it like a tryst with me, paint me with lies
I always upheld my end of the bargain and I gladly took you as my bride.
Track Name: Bitter for My Sweet
Sorry that I holler when I know that I should speak before I speak
Sorry I'm so bitter when I know that you need sugar to be sweet.
Track Name: Cool gentle breeze
Cool gentle breeze
Blowing through
whats left of me
Through this wound
That won't heal
and leaves me hollow
filled with what life I can steal
Leave me to be
underneath the Willow tree
whose roots run deep
Leave me be.
Track Name: High and low
High and low to find
This place in time
This piece of fruit on the vine
Are you disappointed to find
Theres nothing left to hide behind
Theres no more losing you mind
High and low to find
Theres nothing left behind to hide
All those papers you signed
You signed them in Blood.
Track Name: The Amberglow
See the Amber glow
Watch the sun in its final throes
Autumns leaves decay
Springs dead seeds washed away

See the Amber glow
Watch the fire from a mile away
See the amber glow
Nothing there that I did not already know.

See the Amber glow
Ride the wind like a stowaway
Feed the Amberglow
and start the fire from a mile away
Track Name: Left to Leave
Nothing left to break
and nothing left to steal
the Jury is in
Exhausted all appeal
Lost my capacity for reigning in this deal
You lose my scent
Now won't you tell your dogs to heal

I know you won't come
running after me
Ain't it easy when theres nothing left to leave
Cut my heart out and pin it to my sleeve
Ain't it easy when theres nothing left to leave

No favors left
to cushion the fall
I try to miss it but it was never there at all
Stirring in this barren room
Shall my head paint the walls
I try to miss it but it was never there at all

I know you won't come
running after me
Ain't it easy when theres nothing left to leave
Cut my heart out and pin it to my sleeve
Ain't it easy when theres nothing left to leave
Track Name: The Heavens High
Growing cold and hard and thin
No softness to let someone in
I don't want to feed this fate
gotta see there is still another way

I could hold the heavens high
If I could find a love in a strangers eyes
won't you come and Rescue me
I don't want to be alone tonight

The Longer I push and the harder I wait
Blurring the lines between night and day
Don't know why I carry on
Arriving to this empty place

I could hold the heavens high
If I could find a home in a strangers eyes
won't you come and Rescue me
I don't want to be alone tonight
Track Name: Back at it
We're always saying the same goodbyes
You keep on listening to those small town lies
The only Keep us we we always were
Staring back at each other

Word on the street is I've got no pride
Word on the street I've got the devil inside
He's only there to keep my in line
When I'm Staring Back at you

I'm only Crazy when you walk by.
I'm only crazy cause' you catch my eye
I'm only crazy cause' we always try
Not to be staring back at each other

Its hard to know who is on on your side
when everyones dressed like a rebel
They keep on using the Secret Signs
That used to be mine
Track Name: The Hardest Way In
Vampire Bats
Scrabbling Rats
Knocking Down my Door
In their Party Hats
Slip out the back with my travelin' sack
Don't turn around Don't ever look back
Either Way its a Blessing
Either Way its a Sin

(Chorus)
The Easy Way out
is the hardest way in
All or Nothing
Nothings gonna win
The Easy way out
IS the Hardest Way in

Springtime Rolls
With the Pollen and mold
and it holds no promise
to do as I'm told
Run rabbit run
find your mate
past the cackling jackals that are guarding the gate
Either way I get loose
Either way I'm pinned

(Chorus)

Its a trembling Track
When you've got no map
Cold flows through your bones
and its breaking your back
Back to where you came start over again
Back to where you came start over again
Duck and cover
Jump and Spin.
