about

This is the final album in my series of One-Song-A-Day albums. For 500 Days I posted original music in several places on the web. All the albums can be purchased here.

You might be wondering why there aren't exactly 100 for each album. Some have samples that aren't cleared, some tracks are featured on other albums that I've released (most on this site), some are covers of other artists work. I've tried to leave all those not here as downloadable on my Soundcloud.

Thanks for listening.

Track Name: Who I Am
This is my wish,
This is my dream,
This is who I want to be.

Don't tread on my dreams,
Don't tread on who I want to be,
Don't tread on my dreams,
I don't think you even know who I am,
Track Name: So Daring
Our dream is to be one of you.
Our dream is to be a lie.
Our wish is to be on the inside.
Where you won't let us see.
Track Name: Love in your Heart Won't Cut It
You've got drive, but you spend it all the time.
Why don't you just give up?
You've got love in your heart,
but there's a chance you're just full of shit.
Wipe the blood off your mouth.
Clean your teeth.
We're going out now.
And you're not who you think you are.
Track Name: Listen Quietly
close your eyes,
close your mouth,
listen to me.

close your ears,
open your hands,
listen to me.

I got my voice back today.

hold your breath,
there are moments left,
listen to me.

hold your words,
hold what's said,
listen to me.

I got my voice back today.

Pay attention,
to what's said,
listen to me.

This could impact you,
Everything you do,
listen to me.

I got my voice back today.
Track Name: Pure Inner Gee
Do you wanna go for a ride?
Come on now, hope inside.
Do you wanna make new friends?
Let's start again.
This is the end.
Let's start again.
Track Name: Thru Darkened Doors
the end isn't quite as close as you think,
the door is within reach,
the air is thick with doubt,
don't doubt at all.
We have the power,
we have the height,
we have the drive,
we have the might.
We can reach our dreams tonight.
You shared your thoughts,
you shared your gifts,
you wished upon star that we would be lifted.
and we were.
Now we can sing to the gods,
sing to the beats,
sing to the wants and desires we've lost.
You shared your thoughts,
you shared your gifts,
you wished upon star that we would be lifted and we were.
Track Name: What We Want
We stand on a pedestal,
10 feet above all,
The children try to touch our feet,
the children can't touch our feet.
We allow the people to come and view our form,
the people try to touch our feet.
The people can't touch our feet.

WE ARE ALL GODS IN OUR OWN EYES,
NOTHING HERE THAT SHOULD BE A SURPRISE,
ONLY EXPECTATION AND INVOCATION.

We dream small, we dream big.
It doesn't matter our dreams are reality.
The slaves, they try to make it real.

THE MOST IMPORTANT CHARACTER IN YOUR STORY IS YOUR OWN,
EVEN THOUGH YOU STILL DIE ALONE.

We are generous gods,
you may please us as you wish.
yes, you please us as we wish.
Track Name: Drowning in Three Boroughs
Drowning in this crowd wave
They're assaulting me
They're threatening me
How could I breathe?
There is no air
My lungs are squeezing
My ears are buzzing
Please someone please someone
Please someone
Help
I'm floating in this clouds of words
Bubble brain
The story gets louder
rolling of rails
Blinding lights of trains
And now these doors are open
And the river flows
There're all together
Like a gigantic snake
Eating me alive
(Noises around
Going back and forth
They're twisting and melting my brain
Like a bee sting
with Vicodin
Blurry eyes and cotton legs
All I can do is sit and wait
these bars like trees
Are overgrowing
these hands trying to reach them
But they're escaping their grab
Rooted to the ground
like the last tight rope to prevent their fall
And they fall they fall
like feathers in autumn)
Track Name: Slippery
As you march to your death,
we all turn and face the ground.
The paradox of your life leads to the truth that is your end.

The leaves shade your face,
the breeze is cool,
it's almost perfect here.

Bones in the grave,
dirt showers over you.
A pine box,
two coins,
and a suit will take you home.
Track Name: Wishful Thinking
There is no tomorrow,
Only today.
You have to wish for what you want.
Why don't we play?
Track Name: My Bike has a Flat Tire
Someone stole my front tire.
Some stole my innertube.
I'm gonna hunt them down.
Make them a fool.

Someone broke into my bike lock.
Stole the code and the key.
I wish I knew what their name was.
I'd steal their identity.

I want my bike back.

You are so full shit,
you are so full of it.

You are so full of rage.
Track Name: You Lied to my Face
You lied through your teeth, you knew what the fuck you were doing.
You lied through your teeth, you knew just what to say.
You goddamn bitch, you told me everything would be ok.
You lied to my face, I had no idea.
You lied to my face, but you looked just the same,
You goddamn bitch I don't think I can trust you, not even your name.
You goddamn bitch I don't think I can trust you, nothing is the same.
