about

A lot of the songs on this album have been with me for a long time. From Florida to Pennsylvania, I've been playing some of them since 2008. From shows with bands like Mischief Brew, Days N Daze, The Homeless Gospel Choir, Gnarly Whales, Texas Plant, and so much more over the past seven years, I have decided to take on the challenge of touring to the west coast. This is my new beginning. The life we live right now is the only one we know for sure exists, so I'm dealing a new hand and picking up new cards from the deck of life. Thank you to everyone who has been a supporter of my music or might have inspired me over the years. I would love to name each and everyone of you, but I would most likely be in front of this screen for hours, maybe even days.

Track Name: Burn It Down
Look up
Not into the sky, but forward
Don't just sit there
With your head down
Staring at all the wood on the ground

Let the friction
Of your feet
Catch the fallen leaves into an ember

Burn it down
The world is yours
And don't forget
to look up
Track Name: Celebrate With Clapping Hands
I thought that my Utopia was coming around the bend
But it drowned it in the state where the angels met my corps
The congressmen sit in their chair
As our leaders declare war
Then the rebels start all over once again

Let's all go AWOL
Celebrate with clapping hands
All around the world these activists all take the stand
Live against brutality until the day you die
Celebrate with Clapping Hands all around the world

I'm pushing down the button
Cause my blood runs way to thin
Don't let them throw you're life away
Go fight that war machine
If united we strong
Together we can't fall
But that revaluation seems to carry on and on and on and on

Let's all go AWOL
Celebrate with clapping hands
All around the world these activists all take the stand
Live against brutality until the day you die
Celebrate with Clapping Hands all around the world

Thank you for putting all those flowers in the tanks
Thank you for defying all those military ranks
But this war machine keeps spinning on someone's fingertips
Who's probably never done one single push up in his life

Let's all go AWOL
Celebrate with clapping hands
All around the world these activists all take the stand
Live against brutality until the day you die
Celebrate with Clapping Hands all around the world

Let's all go AWOL
Celebrate with clapping hands
All around the world these activists all take the stand
Live against brutality until the day you die
Celebrate with Clapping Hands all around the world
Track Name: I Don't Believe In Leaders
I'm not trying to walk a path
Cause I can't walk straight to save my life
I dropped out of church to ease my mind
Still haven't found no Jesus Christ
I lost everything that I once had
I traded it all for a cigarette
now I surround myself with Democrats
Republicans and Interdependent Hypocrites

I can't tell you who my leader is
But I can tell you all about myself
I don't believe in leaders

I'm not trying to start a war
Peace and violence are always knocking on the door
I don't have to prove myself
To anybody, you, or anyone else
Go ahead and pick your side
I'll be standing in the middle and I'll do it all over again

Maybe they'll float up off the wall
Track Name: Three Heart Beats
You can be anti abortion
You can throw your kid away
You could pray to all your problems
You could fear they'll never stay
But I'm running from the clockworks
stuck inside a horrorshow
being preached that holy bible
sell this man of god your soul
for it gets ya into heaven
the more money that you give
keeps the church open on Sunday
teach good morals to your kids
so when they grow up
they'll be congressmen
presidents and priests
keep the generations going
even when you are deceased
oh if i could restart history
id do it in three heart beats
one for hope
and one for love
one for angels from above
I'd make sure there was never war
there would be no need for peace
all the animals get liberation
every human free
and the schools would teach you
how to see
a life without brutality
As the apple on the teacher's desk
turns rotten to the core
there would be no fascist nations
we'd never need a police state

If three Heart Beats
Were all i ever needed
I Would Turn the world around
Leave it hanging upside down.
But those missiles of democracy
Keep Flying from the Sky
and you know it's never gonna stop
Until the day we die
Track Name: Dance With the Devil
It's like I'm at the top of a roller coaster
That moment of weightless gravity
Downward velocity
For every arsonist that stood in my way
and burnt down bridges before I could
well I've been looking for excuses to get out of town
cause this town is a prison
and prisons are boring
but a little bit of good behavior goes a long way
get out of jail free cards
have been used every day

I've danced with the devil
but I never held his hand
I've been offered plenty of times
but I never took the chance

Locked down inside of your room
in a big empty house at the end of this town
smashed windows
rocks and molotovs
are breaking down inside of my head
smashed windows
rocks and molotovs
are breaking down inside of my head
I guess there's no turning back
some things were said
you know the past is the past
Track Name: What Makes My World Spin
People always tell me I should just keep my mouth shut
Cause every time I open it I ruin somebody's luck
They tell me not to talk about the war on drugs or politics
Anarchy and judgement day members of the NRA
Global leaders in their chairs
Taxpayers loosing hair
Credit cards and corporations
Filled with greed built by the rich
That's what makes my world spin

People always tell me I should just keep my mouth shut
Cause every time I open it I ruin somebody's luck
They tell me not to talk about
Oil spills and off shore drills
Countries being torn apart
By radioactive nuclear weapons
That's what makes my world spin

People always tell me I should just keep my mouth shut
Cause every time I open it I ruin somebody's luck
They tell me not to talk about
The protest or the ninety-nine
Bombs and cops
presidents
Prisoners stuck doing time
That's what makes my world spin
It goes round and round and round
Track Name: Things They Didn't Teach You In Kindergarten
A is for Anarchy or Apples that decay
B is for Blasphemy I live it every day
C is for conformity
D is for distraction (or drugs)

H is for Human Rights

O is for Obstacles you'll go through your whole life

S is for singing songs
T is for together
U is for Ugh!
V is for Vacation
W is for What the fuck do i do with-
X?
Y is for your time
Z is just a letter that goes above sleeping peoples' heads
Track Name: The World Keeps Turning
I've got some enemies and friends
hanging onto a system
with broken down apologies
or caught up in technology
pushing away
connected and tangled
until the final cord gets ripped

because the world keeps turning
at a thousand miles an hour
the apocalypse begins when it stops
but since the world keeps turning
it looks like we're all going to be stuck on this rock

I lost my appetite for days
I'm well aware it's not healthy
woke up on the floor cold thirsty and hungry
we're all living the dream
but we're dieing the nightmare
blowing up and shooting down egos

Relationships that I was too afraid to have in the past
decisions waited too long to make
and all the chances that I didn't take
I guess it's insecurity
I had a very long day
I haven't seen you in a month
and if it helps I think I'm doing okay
if you say your leaving
do yourself a favor
please just stay away
Track Name: Over the River
You're not gonna build a boat
and float on down the river
without being stopped
by a police officer or a dam
you're gonna have to pull it out
sooner than expected
I really just hope you haven't tried it yet
where I'm from the river flows north
under bridges built for cars and trains
so you can go to work
next to highways
and all the little towns
there's a crackhouse in an ally
that's about to be torn down
but I don't care
cause I don't hang out over there
I don't got a pill addiction or a needle in my arm

Make me a candidate with power for the people
no corruption on the innocent
and sees everyone's as equal
Bring me a general who basses life off of human rights
attacks with peace
and never fights or needs a heart of purple
show me a soldier with a hammer not a gun
just so they can build a house
we can destroy when it's all done
when it's all done
Track Name: The Ending
