about

At the other beginnings of my 100 days I wanted to start fresh, new, and vibrant. This time is no exception. Something I've noticed is that it's harder to stay excited now that I'm so far into this little project, but, like seasons, this comes and goes. There are days that I can't wait to get up and start working, there are other days where I just want to get it done. More importantly, I feel like the act itself is the important thing.

I've heard several composers and songwriters say that the only way they will compose new works is to set a routine for themselves. Some do it at 3 a.m., some at 2 p.m., but whichever it is, they all seem to drive home the same point. If you make yourself do it, you'll do it. Motion creates emotion, energy creates creativity, determination and resolve drive the creation process.

For me, creation is the most important thing. I'm here to do this. I know that my purpose on this earth is to create. Whether it be a short film, a drawing, a sculpture, or a piece of music, it's my reason for being here.

Track Name: Ammo No. 2
Led the crowd by their nose like a fool.
Sharpen words on stones so cruel.
You forgot the way back home.
Despite all your dreams you're always alone.

On the wings of a fantasy,
Eyes of a dragon,
Skin like a reptile gone dry.

Rope round your neck like a fool.
Painful as it sounds it's for your own good.
Track Name: Less is More
Get this alien off of my back, out of my sight, out of my chest.
Get this animal out of my sight tonite.
Live outside of the dream, live outside of your means, you can accomplish all.
Live within your head, live with what you said, no one can define you.

You define yourself.
Track Name: Old Arp Comin' Round
Your name is nearly a lie.
Track Name: Cold in the City
It's cold in the city and she's swears she ain't got nothin' left.
It's cold in the city and we're just standing in the doorway.
It's cold in the city and we wait outside.
It's cold in the city and we ain't got no reason to be terrified.

You won't bother me no more.
I've got no time to help,
Why don't you help yourself?
Track Name: Ammo No. 3
When you thought you were holed up in a dream,
thinking of everyone you wish you could be,
You didn't want to hold yourself up anymore.
Didn't want to hold me up anymore.
When you thought you were lost in a maze,
Thinking of all the people you once saved.
You decided you didn't care anymore.
Didn't give a damn about anyone anymore.
Dragging you down, Try not to Frown.
We won't hold you back,
Give you a kiss,
Don't even miss what we had to say,
gonna have it our way.
You're not the boss of me and we all think you're a piece of shit
Track Name: Bends Make the Blood Bubble
You're not a part of this world.
Track Name: Simple and to the Point
You aren't ever gonna hold me back, don't try to ever hold me back.
Don't give it away, I'll hold you in sway
We live in a dream. It's not what it seems.
Track Name: Drop the Hammer
Don't drop the ball, leave it all on the table.
Don't drop the ball, leave it all on the field.
Track Name: Your Surprise is Unlikely
Your surprise is as unlikely as your cooperation,
Your anger is as pure as your song.
Your rainbow agenda is covered in rain,
Don't try to show us the way to the door.
Track Name: Patch It, Groove It, Live It, Love It
Patch it,
Groove it,
Live it,
Love it.
Track Name: SoShi
Have you met my friend?
He's so tall and green.
You will love him.
Come meet my friend.
Track Name: Stranded on a Grain of Rice
From here I can almost see my house.
Don't you let me down.
Track Name: SoDratr
This is how we measure loss,

No way to measure this.
You are my dream.
You are my nightmare.

This is how we measure fate,
No one here,
what's your name?
We are living in a dream.

This is how we measure hate,
No one here what's your fate?
I can't believe what you say.

This is how we measure lies,
No one here, no surprise.
Forgive me, I know not what I do.
Track Name: Secret of Mine
We're all in the basement, hiding from the light.
We're all in the basement, hiding from sight.
We're all in the ceiling, hiding from your eyes,
We're all hiding from you.

We've all got a secret that you can't find.
We've all got a secret that you can't find.
We've all got a secret that you can't find.
Secret of mine.
