about

This is my first album release of any kind, and I'm very proud of how it turned out. I've done everything myself, and it was a fantastic learning experience along the way. I hope you enjoy it, share it with your friends, and that it will have some meaning in your life along the way.

Special thanks:
Alice Williams, for the constant encouragement
Lauren Vessio, for the endless inspiration
Ashley Norton, for the idea to do this in the first place!
MBIRD, for giving me confidence
All of the bands I've ever played in, for providing the rich palette that has shaped my music

And finally, thanks to everyone who supports original music; you keep us challenged and hungry for more.

Track Name: Peekaboo
Peekaboo
I see you
Hiding in the shadows
Howling at the moon
I don't quite understand why you have to be this way
But I can't stop watching from my hiding place
Peekaboo
I found you
Inside an iron cage
Like an animal in a zoo
The screaming, crying, cursing, thrashing fits that you display
Make the keepers nervous in a sympathetic way

You're gone, you're out of sight
Adrift in the black of night
I came to change your fate
But all I have to do is wait
Just close my eyes and count to eight...

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

Peekaboo
Peekabee?
Peeka-what the fuck is happening to me?
I see the world through a million different lenses
But the dullness of my senses
Incapacitates me
Peekaboo
I choose you!
To help me find the peace of mind I once knew
The treasure hunt begins in the same damn place
The most amazing race is running through my brain

I'm gone, I'm out of sight
Adrift in the black of night
You came to give me peace
To make the waking nightmare cease
All you do is count with me

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

Peekaboo
Same to you
I found the meaning in the vision of you
Even if I don't believe it, I will be there by your side
Just join with me and count in time

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

We're gone, we're out of sight
Adrift in the black of night
I'll keep the search alive
Until we understand the why
Of you
Track Name: Portraits Of Our Lives
Say it ain't so, mama
The shadow's gone again
To find another roof to share

We weren't good enough
We weren't good enough
But we were all that was there

Photographs of moments gone by
Silently frozen in time
All that remain are portraits of our lives

Thought you should know, papa
I finally made the grade
And, for a moment, you were proud
But I've gotta go, son
Son, I've gotta go
Lost your voice to the clouds

Photographs of moments gone by
Silently frozen in time
All that remain are portraits of our lives

Thought you should know, son
The whispers came again
In the background of a call
What do they say, mama?
What do they say?

Nothing much
How's the weather?
Take good care
Of your betters
Stay in school so you can make it
All the world is for the taking

On and on and on and on
On and on and on and on...

As we grow old, mama
The shadow's gone for good
Distant flashes of a dream
But I'll be okay, mama
Mama, I'm okay
But since you asked
Thought you should know
Track Name: The Way Things Are Now
When you left me
You broke my heart
Never thought I'd have such a rough start

Now you've come back
More or less
But too much time is gone, I confess

A lifetime of heartache
A moment of truth
Another day waiting for you to come through
A life I can live without you
The way things are now

Clear the haze
From your eyes
Then you'll see the product of your lies
That's the choice you made
Aren't you glad?
Stop pretending that you feel so bad

A lifetime of heartache
A moment of time
We won't live forever
But dying seems fine
You're finally out of my mind
The way things are now

You still dote me
I tune it out
It's too late for you to scream and to shout
Now you love me
Heh...I suppose
Then return to me the time that you stole

A lifetime of heartache
A moment of tears
Can't stop these feelings
Of pain and of fear
It's hard to believe you're sincere
The way things are now
The way things are now
The way things are now
