about

This is a compilation of incomplete songs that have been sitting around forever. I apologize for any glaring issues in volumes/mixing but unfortunately have no easy way to correct them at this time.

Track Name: Wheels
I have it on good authority
That something strange
Is happening

Would you like to come along
And meet all my friends?
Would you like to sing a song
As our story begins?

I was losing my faith in humanity
til something strange
Came over me

Wheels keep on turning
But I don't believe in anything
They want you to do
Wheels keep on turning
But I don't believe in anything
They want you to use

I am a god among mere men
Come with me to the promised land
I am a god among mere men
Come with me, I'll show you the promised land
Track Name: Nothing, Nothing
Nothing you do has purpose
Nothing you do has power
Nothing around you even matters
Begin the hundred year cycle

Reuse the same damn concepts
Redo the same damn songs
About nothing
Nothing, nothing at all

Well what do you think I'm doing here?

Nothing I do translates
A hundred years ago
Nothing I do translates
A hundred years from now

Still trapped in the same routine
Give someone your time
So you can spend your time in comfort
Or so you think

Well what do you think I'm doing here?
Nothing
Nothing, nothing at all
Track Name: It
Fail to see
Where lies the mystery
Wallow in misery
That loves company
It's almost too easy
To let it all go free
Emotion swallows me
Wrapped in desperate pleas

The sun shines brightest in the dark
The longest distance is never far

Why do they single, they single out?
Why can't they just let, let it all be?
Let it all go, let it be free
Let it be done for all the trouble it's brought

The darkened skies
Make me wonder why
Why I never try
Attempt to fly
Is where I lie
The place where I will die
A lonesome cry
Into the dark of night

The bright light fades, the morning wanes
The day light dissipates, only darkness remains
Track Name: Lies
I'm wrapped in lies
Moving along to the beat that I know so well
Moving along through the sadness and dispair
Lies moving along to the beat that I know so well

But you never call

I'm floating here
I'm floating high
I'm floating high above the sky
There's something strange
Inside of me
Once more I see the mystery
I don't have to solve
I know it all
It's clear to me to take the call
I feel the love is in

But you never call
Track Name: Give Up the Ghost
I detect a mixture of signals coming forth
I retain this vigil, wondering if I'm even coming through
Can you hear me?
Because I don't hear you

I'm confused, yet somehow enamored by the ruse
Redefine the standard
My head gets lost in the labyrinth of your eyes
Your words build the walls up so high

Just the right amount of yes
Just the right amount of no
Keeps me wondering whether or not
I should give up the ghost

Can you speak to the issue at hand?
Are you weak from the constant demand?
Beware of the tide rushing in on the land
'cause my head's still buried in the sand

Should I keep moving along?
Track Name: Just Live
The conversation
Finds a lull and I make my exit
Through the crowd and I'm out the front door
Starting to feel like I can't handle this anymore

Next destination
Speeds away as I put my FOOT DOWN
I'm on the fastest path to nowhere
Starting to feel like I don't really even care

There's no time to stop and think about what you've done

I don't want to be the bearer of bad news
But you're never gonna change no matter how hard you try
I don't want to be the bearer of bad news
But you're never gonna change no matter how hard you try

This sensation
I'd give it all just to reside here
Sacrifice my will for wonder
Maybe if I made a few more dollars per hour

No motivation
Why the fuck's it so hard to COME BY?
Gotta stop the self medication
Gotta stop the self medication

There's no time to stop and think about what you've done

I don't want to be the bearer of bad news
But you're never gonna change no matter how hard you try
I don't want to be the bearer of bad news
But you're never gonna change no matter how hard you try

Maybe in the end
You'll do something to redeem yourself
I wouldn't count on it
So maybe you should just live

Maybe in the end
You'll find there isn't any reason to repent
But I couldn't speak for you
So maybe you should just live
Track Name: Better Ways to Cope
Maybe if I act
They'll think I'm happy
Maybe if I act so
You'll think I'm happy

Maybe if I stay
You'll think I want to
Maybe if I stay here
You'll think I want this

Maybe if I love
You'll think I mean it
Maybe if I say I love you
You'll think I mean it

Constantly waging this war in my head
Searching for somebody to fill half my bed
Stunted and withering, I gave up all hope
The man with much less than me has better ways to cope

Not lovestruck but blinded, stumbling through my days
There's emotion behind it, but not in the right way
Despondence and misery seem too much to hope
The man with much less than me, still better ways to cope
Track Name: I'll Be Waiting
You take your time
To make up your mind
You know I'll be fine
Take what you want from me

Nothing hanging on the line
I don't let my feelings make me blind
You know I want to make you mine
But maybe now is not the right time

Please do believe this
I'm not out of patience
I'll be waiting right here for you
I'll be waiting right here for us
Track Name: Relinquish All Your Love to Me
Can you distinguish pain from ecstasy?
Will you relinquish all your love to me?

Now is the time to act
This feeling inside of me is saying
Now is the time to act
