about

recorded live at Circle A on September 1st, 2017

lyrics

I been writing more than I been living
I been talking to myself more than anybody else
it's an odd inclination I been given
love the alone time, live for the song

I been thinking, lord I been thinking
round and round these walls my thoughts scramble and crawl
the only time my soul is calm completely
is when my head is empty and there's room for the song

it's all been sung and done before I know
stronger hands than these have crafted finer works of prose
this light aint the brightest but it shines
love the limitations, live for the rhyme

I been dreaming, baby I been scheming
thought maps on the ceiling, post-its on the cabinet doors
let this be my tombstone when I'm gone
die when you have to, live for the song

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here: eepurl.com/bcruFT

I post a song once a week on Tuesdays. If I've just finished a song I'll record a rough demo and put it up. Sometimes its live recordings or weird electro collages. I also make a video most weeks using public domain footage. Check it out!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my music!
