about

This is the soundtrack of my Winter in Sarasota. All songs written during a 6 week period, all songs recorded, at least started, the day the song was written. The idea was to come up with inspiration fast, and to capture it as fast as I could, so I could not talk myself out of or into changing the raw ideas.

Track Name: First Cup of Joe
You probably have a wealth of things to say
I'm certain that you truly do
But your'e gonna have to wait to bring me into the know
until I've had my first cup of joe
You always delight me with your caustic wit
and please me with your pleasantries
but nothing is funny yet so I'm placing you on hold
until I've had my first cup of joe
it's me it's not you don't take it personally
but you sounds just like a pterodactyl in heat
as soon as I find my first cup of joe
I know your voice will sound like Nina Simone
You probably have a wealth of things to say
I'm certain that you truly do
but your'e gonna have to wait to bring me into the know
until I find my first cup of joe
Track Name: Good Morning Evolution
Is it good luck or is it chance joining our fates into this room?
Isn't my line traveling through time putting my voice inside of you?
Do you consent to what I've sent or an unwanted peek-a-boo?
We've made it this far
won't you stay with us, stay with us now?
Good Morning Evolution
good afternoon you smooth baboon
How's about a chest hair for the bride?
Good evening and goodnight
Ye Olde bar hopping socialites
And don't forget to tell the kids you love them
Good Morning Evolution
We've moved way past revolution
now we just copy and paste
between status updates
me oh my, look at the time in the same we he looks at you
then you won't cry each every time he does a job he's gotta do
take a deep breath and stick with the rest
I made this all for you
...and don't forget to tell the kids you love them
Track Name: Emerald City
I got this feeling taking over
count back from 20 now I'm under
spiral through tunnel lights
I'll wake up right where we left off
My valentine is otherworldly pretty
reflecting underneath the Emerald City
Well you can live until 150
we laugh at time here in the emerald city
we met there when the war was over
those streets were filled with joy and woner
the women danced all night
we drank until the morning light
the streets are calm and it is never too busy
we laugh at time here in the emerald city
there's no pollution yeah the breathing is easy
don't have to worry in the Emerald City
Track Name: Always Something In Between
There's always something in between
ever after and happily
each time I think I'm getting close
something just knocks me off the road
There's always something in between
where I am and where I want to be
the finish line is just a ghost
I'm facing backwards on the road
I'm always trapped inside a dream
where things are perfect then they cut the scene
I wake up to the saddest melody
played in a minor key
and your'e no longer by my side
the traffic's always moving slow
but only on the roads I want to go
think to myself I should lay low
an hour after i leave home
There's always something in between
a healthy breakfast and my self esteem
the mirror let's me play again
the mirror never let's me win
Track Name: Another Way to Go
If there's another way to go
Can't get there wishing down the well travelled roads
jump back from where they laid the street
run from the hurried flow
good chance you'll find another way to go
I found another way to go
when i stopped going where they told me to go
turned off the voices i could hear
birds sing in stereo
good chance you'll find another way to go
go on and leave your cubicle
they won't notice your'e gone
and make the rules up as you go
this time tomorrow we could be in Mexico
We'll find another way
If there's another way to go
I'll get there with or without letting you know
good chance I'll make it there somehow
post card sent now read it slow
already found another way to go
Track Name: The World is Drunk, But I'm O.K.
the world is drunk
but i'm ok
why's everybody keep on acting that way
i only drink to keep the drunks at bay
so when my sober head gets lonely
i'll meet you at drunk in shortly
the world is drunk
and so am i
let's break each other's tiny little hearts tonight
let's make a toast and melt into a dream
cuz nothing is exactly the way you think it seems
the world is drunk, but I'm ok
I'll sleep this broken heart away
but tomorrow comes and always steals the day
so when my sober head gets lonely
i'll meet you at drunk in shortly
Track Name: Everyone Knows
In over my head
crossed over the line
I feel like i did the same that I did a million more times
now eyes are all red and mouth is all dry
I should have stayed home but now i'm out here and wondering why
i try to stay calm start fixing my clothes
is this how i walk? I feel like my socks are tight on my toes
EVERYONE KNOWS
Just 7 more blocks
to hydrate my face
it seems there's way more people everywhere today
10 paces ahead, that man on his bike
just looked at me weird i think i'll cross the other side
but a grandpa in green is mowing the rows
I feel like his eyes are moving in time wherever i go
EVERYONE KNOWS
shoulda stayed home where it is cold and dark inside
feel like the sun is shooting lasers in my eyes
i shoulda stayed home
i get to the door
and now i'm inside
i walk to the case and give the door one heck of a slide
I grab it and wait
just 2nd in line
I open the can and pour the bubbles down my slide
the man rings me up
I feel for my phone
I feel for my wallet they are not there
I left them at home
EVERYONE KNOWS
Track Name: Like the old Couples Do
I can picture us swinging by some porch light in June
wearing our years like two flowers in bloom
maybe sometimes we'll argue over nothing to do
making faces, like the old couples do
I see us drinking old fashioned's on s Sunday at noon
you complaining that you ate way too much of your food
but i'll still order up dessert when you tell me not to
and we'll just laugh at each other like the old couples do
You'll pester me about my medicine and I'll go on and on about how Letterman, and all the old shows are better than what we got now
But you'll still understand how much it means to always hold tight onto your hand, and if i don't always say it, you'll know i love you
I hope we'll make it so save a seat on that swing next to you
We'll swing on to the end, like the old couples do Been such a fun ride
where flowers do high five
Track Name: I'll miss me when I'm gone
Been such a fun ride
where flowers do high five
love being alive on a planet with streams
here comes the sunshine
leaves doing hand signs
i laugh with the bird types who whistle all my dreams
but there's someone I'll truly miss just listening to his songs
i dedicate this one to me, he never done me wrong
keeps me awake with visions and words that carry on
oh man, I'll miss me when I'm gone
This ain't my first ride
no in my last life
I can from a good tribe
I'll return in my dreams
one proud Lakota
from South Dakota
we didn't draw imaginary lines back then at all
not sure if I've been better or been worse this time around
I know I will come back someday
put feet on hallowed ground
I like it here I'll do my very best to stick around
oh man, I'll miss me when I'm gone
