about

The album is free to download, just type "0" where it says name your price.

Please consider this more like shareware rather than freeware. That is, if you find you've been listening to the album for a while and enjoy it, consider buying it. Funds will be used to help me continue making music.

Track Name: The Magical Floating Bed
If it feels good, or it’s helpful
Try to picture a better place
but I, don’t, see that working today

Cause you can’t stay in bed
No you can’t stay in bed
and if it’s for the best
Then we wouldn’t leave again

If it heals you, and you want more
Try not to be such a bitter boy
So, I, think how could you fall in love

Cause you can’t stay in bed
No you can’t stay in bed
and if it’s for the best
Then we wouldn’t leave again
We wouldn’t leave again
Track Name: Emerald Dream Thief
I’m in love,
with a girl
who sometimes leaves this world
cause I can’t find her some days

But I’m sure,
She is pure
she told me so, so I know
cause of the days when she stays

I’m in love with someone who I trust
to tell me what is real, what’s illustrations
I’m in love with someone
who with the tip of their tongue
can turn the balance beams
from right to wrong

I’m in love,
with a girl
who sometimes leaves this world
cause I can’t find her some days
Track Name: Slapback
When I find the time I will tell you again
please be careful with what you don’t wish for
And it may seem kind of unkind I presume
but it helps me when I just can’t sleep

When you were born
the world stopped spinning for ten minutes
so since then
the timing never seemed right
like a tape that plays too slow to a movie track
your lips going too soon
voice going too fast
And the melody meant to set the mood
won’t quite

When I find the time I will tell you again
please be careful with what you don’t wish for
and it may seem kind of unkind I presume
but it helps me when I just can’t sleep

When you were born
the world stopped spinning for ten minutes
so since then
the timing never seemed right
like a tape that plays too slow to a movie track
your lips going too soon
voice going too fast
And the melody meant to set the mood
won’t quite
Track Name: Bluebirds & Meteorite
The strangest thing I’ve ever thought
was why am I here if you are not
but now I know it’s true
I know why I am blue
I know why my colour’s all awry
is cause I let you in my life

So strange, so strange
the way that one behaves
When you turn off the light in their brain
When you take off their roof and it starts it starts to rain

Though I have learned to count the days
like a little kid playing marble games
still now I know it’s true
I know why I am blue
I know why my colour’s all awry
is cause I let you in my life

Night light, night light keeps me company
But it won’t quite, be what you need
When you wake from a book of dreams
With the pages torn so you don’t know what it means

There’s a bully who sleeps upstairs
He tells me things I don’t want to hear
but now I know it’s true
I know why I am blue
I know why my colour’s all awry
is cause I let you in my life
Track Name: Perspective of a Mosquito
When I was four years old
we had a burnt black pellet stove
And one day I found a frail female mosquito

And I don’t know if she knew but I thought
she could do with a little more warmth
So I let her go on top that old black stove
And I watched her dance her life away

If her feet hadn’t melded with the metal
She could’ve flown from the lethal
Instead a silent scream seemed to follow

And I don’t know if she knew but I thought
she was going to be ok
So I let her go down her own road
And I wondered if it lead back to me
Yeah I let her go her own road
And I wondered if it lead back to me

Now I’m not as young
I remember what I’ve done
Cause one day I’ll find another one
And I won’t let it go, I won’t let it go
Track Name: Doormat
If you want someone
you can walk on I know someone
If you want someone
you can treat bad enough
that they love you more and they hate themselves for it
but they don’t know how to quit

If you want someone
you can count on I know someone
If you want someone
you can leave when its rough
and they won’t call you
unless you call them first
cause to them it’s just another lesson learned

Lie lie lie lie lie lie
Don’t bother with goodbye

If you want someone
you can walk on I know someone
If you want someone
you will give you their trust
and they won’t get mad
if you break their heart
because they don’t think that
they deserve one
Track Name: Only a Microphone
He doesn’t think it’s worth it to fight it now
he doesn’t think oh there’s another way out
Cause it’s always around

So with his eyes still closed
he climbs the ferry that takes her home
cause it doesn’t mean much when a pretty thing goes
just let her go
Yeah it wasn’t a camera that stole his soul
only a microphone

It never goes away this meaninglessness
It never goes away but I wish if it did
cause its all that you miss

so with his eyes still closed
He climbs the ferry that takes her home
it doesn’t mean much when a pretty thing goes
Just let her go
It wasn’t a camera that stole his soul
only a microphone

I wanna believe, I wanna believe
there’s no place that could replace
the time you find inside your mind
and though it means I cannot dream
well I want to dream, I want to dream
cause I still love you though I know
I shouldn’t want to I suppose
Its just what I do, and I’m alone
and will be
Track Name: Connectiveness
Hello I’m a liar and a beggar and a thief
oh if you let me in your home
I’ll only learn to cause you grief

Yeah somewhere in your sleepless eyes there’s a world that does reside
And as with time with many other things that will soon subside

And if only the earth was large enough
to fall into itself
pull in the stars, destroy the sun
leave us here combined as one entity
alone in time, was darker once
but now it shines
to guide those, that are to come
in search of things

we’d never done before
we’d never done before
we’d never done before

Hello I’m a loser and an outcast of this world
but if by chance I could steal
the wisdom of your pearls

Well my pain and pleasures are conjoined and I could never find a void
that’s large enough for me to store the fears
I can’t ignore

And if only the earth was large enough
to fall into itself
pull in the stars, destroy the sun
leave us here combined as one entity
alone in time, was darker once
but now it shines
to guide those, that are to come
in search of things

we’d never done before
we’d never done before
we’d never done before
Track Name: Differentiating Wavelengths
He said so then, lets talk about it, cause I think about it all
more than you can –

She said no Ben, that’s not a good thing, that’s not the only thing
keeping you alive

And, and when I turn my head
a little too quick I see you there
And, and though I’m still awake
I’m terrified and I can’t take
much more of this it hurts my head
why I was, what I was

And then there’s these things I call them wavelengths they help me determine
spaces placed between events

She said I know
but you’re so oh
hard to tell its hard to tell if you are even here at all

And and when I turn my head
a little too quick I see you there
And and though I’m still awake
I’m dreaming of your pretty face
And when I think, I think of you
I’m hoping that you’re thinking of me too
Track Name: Seasonal Change - The Last Time
I’ll find me a way out of here
I tried before but I don’t know, don’t know
and an exit sign is all I’m looking for

First the pressure to burst my skin
then the wounds filled with gin
and I would pass out from this pain
if not for my adrenaline

I was only trying to preserve
the things that I once knew
Protect you from this hell
but I can’t protect you from myself

You dragged me here how long ago
Why you did I don’t want to know
but I’m happy now that we are all alone

I was only trying to preserve
the things that I once knew
Protect you from this hell
but I can’t protect you from myself
And this is all just consequence of loving someone far too much
And all I do I really only do for you
Track Name: A White Boat
These words
lift up the whole world
off your shoulders
off your shoulders

This note
turns to a white boat
so you can sail the waves
you can sail the waves

And this line
gives you back the time
you spent with me
spent with me

And this piece
gets rid of gravity
so nothing pushes you down
or around

This verse
knows why you hurt
what you’re worth
and why your tired heart does not work

This chord
the one you can’t afford
takes this air from me
and fills your lungs so you breathe
Track Name: Final Thoughts
If I could
only trap one second
of my entire life
to live eternally
I know the one
i know the one for me
for me

And If I could
only look at the entire world
just one last time
I know the view
I know the view for me
for me

Oh maybe I create reality
see what I want to see
and what I see is right
No I’ve never been
stuck in someone else’s dream
I want to find you next to me
Awake and find you next to me

Sometimes I feel
like I am not from here
but a distant star
and I get to go
I get to go home
go home

And when I leave
if I could take just one
thing with me
just one memory
I know the one
I know the one for me
for me

Oh maybe I create reality
see what I want to see
and what I see is right
No I’ve never been
stuck in someone else’s dream
I want to find you next to me
awake and find you next to me

You look so beautiful
from your hair down to the floor
I would lay next to you, if my body I could move

And we will sleep, sleep this off
for eternity
We will sleep this off for eternity
We will sleep this off for eternity
We will sleep this all for eternity
We will sleep this off for eternity

Eternity, eternity,
Eternity, eternity,
Eternity, eternity
