about

My 7th year to participate in the RPM Challenge, an internet challenge for musicians to record an album of original material in the month of February.

My personal challenge was to record songs with vocals and lyrics, none of that instrumental guitar silliness as I have in the past.

Individual tracks are free to download, but if you throw some coin in for the entire album, I'll send the money on to rpmchallenge.com to support their work.

Track Name: We've All Been There
Gravity failing
Cats float flailing
Furniture in midair
Salvador smiling
Rainbows crying
Clocks melting everywhere
Pachyderms stilted
Lovers jilted
Stand alone in a crowd
Giraffes are burning
Tides are turning
Music playing loud

Life can be absurd
Life can be unfair
But doncha know
We've all been there

Lines meet in distance
Question existence
Is there any other way
Couples on rooftops
Love as the dew drops
All the live long day
Troubador standing
Presence commanding
Venus deMilo forming face
Gadfly formations
Spaniard creations
Humility, not a trace

What do you perceive
When your senses take leave
You just stand and stare
Because we've all been there
Track Name: Little Jack
Little Jack Kerouac sits under a tree
Tells me that all we see is just a movie
In our minds
If you look at those mountains for months at a time
You will see the blissful essence of your mind

Nobody sees it nobody hears
They can’t use their eyes
Can’t use their ears
Be kind to everyone everyday
You’ll see that heaven ain’t so far away

Breathe deep be silent
Remember the lesson you forgot
The great nothing never happened
It’s just a golden eternal thought

Life’s not about the clothes you wear
Or what you bought
The more you try to be what you are
The more that you are not

Nobody sees it nobody hears
They can’t use their eyes
Can’t use their ears
Be kind to everyone everyday
You’ll see that heaven ain’t so far away
