released December 5, 2015

me on the vocal vibrations
me on the hi-low tones
me on the wood grain toe tap
me on the string tickles
me on the bang bang clickclacks
me on the binary capturing device
me on the tin roof jamboree

you on the ears
you on the self love
you on the brilliance
you on the smile pile
you on the dream sauce

us on life(?)

Track Name: We The People(suits and ties tell you lies)2014
sidewalk scenes scream siren songs
this path is rich and clean
take pride in what you owe
once i broke a rule i set myself
that i should smile more
it was the rule that was killing me
i'll just smile anyway

we the people
all forget sometimes
our wealths not our worth
suits and ties may try to tell you lies
just say oh my world what stories you will tell

i sat down across a man in a subway car
dressed his finest
and we fell into the earth

i got the impression that he considered the passage of time
a personal loss
and he lifted his iphone

we the people
all forget sometimes
our wealths not our worth
suits and ties may try to tell you lies
just say oh my world what stories you will tell
Track Name: YouAreLove(2015)
after all
the dust clears
the old fears
breakdown

the more we heal the more we find
the more we heal the more we fly

and you, you are love
and oh the sky above
how tumultuous this life can be
ah me

seasons
weave in
and out
of this
wild eyed man

the more we mend the more we grow
the more we mend the more we know

and you, you are love
and oh the sky above
how tumultuous this life can be
Track Name: Tell Me a Story(2015)
tell me a story
about what you see
right outside your widow
is it in harmony?
or is it all falling down?
your heart will play its part

dont go looking for a black and white answer
in this magic colorful world

you and me babe
we cant heal the blind
but with this hands and with these minds
we just might
start to see
that the world is oh so big
so many people thinking that theyre it

dont go looking for a concrete answer
without love in your heart
and time is just a mode for memory
it cant keep us apart

so if youre lonely
go outside
the birds sing
the clouds move
and all you people living your life
thank you
for being you
cause you are so very big
the world will play its little tricks

time is just a quiet confidence
writing down who we are
i have no answers for the cosmos
or why we burn gasoline

so love
love
love what you do
love love love loveeee
Track Name: Standing Among the Towers(2015)
standing among the towers
of the glimmering flickering city
a briefcase and some flowers
constantly checking the time
fatigued by the sameness
by his recent memory

he's writing his own ransom notes
as to occupy his mind
hired one thousand bodyguards
to fend off wasted time
suddenly a clock strikes
and hes half past his life

and i do believe
you were walking here before me
and i wont let you fall

whatever happened to a simple conversation
what ever happened to a life lived out loud
the man falls down
and his mind trickles out
of the whole in the side of his head




when we die we wil float
into the kingdom of dirt
with our love and our breath now on the wind
and all our hate buried deep with in
Track Name: Oh My Life(2014)
oh last night
i gave my fears to my life
my mind hulled out the lost time
and anything that ever got in the way

cause this is what happens when you lose your fear
lets tear down the things which we know as unpure

oh last night
i bought my hate a drink
we talked of all the things we've broke
and i said
so this is the life that you want to see
me wrapped in my own jealousy?

cause this is what happens when you lose your hate
we stare down the road which we call our fate

so take a good look at what you have become
and ask our older selves
am i the real you?
does this feel true?

oh all life
a poem born from this world
lost amongst the swirls
an endless infallible dream

so this is what happens when you lose your strife
our hang-ups and bang-ups which cover our eyes
