about

Three songs recorded over several days from midnight to dawn in the summer of 2009. Inspired by Michael Jackson's Thriller LP cover and friends and family.

Sold on a "free or by donation" basis during many shows of amazing-sounding crowds throughout the fall of 2009.

Now it's online, downloadable on a "free or by donation" basis. Please take it for free, or leave me anything you feel like! Every cent you graciously pay will go directly to the finishing of the my new record, Montauk.

Track Name: White Flag
Don't worry about the mess,
They can clean it when you go.
Don't worry about the rest,
You can deal when you get home.

Can't you see her waving her white flag?
Can't she see you leaving?

Nobody sees you the way I see you
Nobody sees you the way I see you, darling,
When you're standing there.

How many miles does it take to fall out of love?
How many hours does it take to write it in a song?
It just takes a second to make a choice
You'll never forget.

Everybody sees you the way I see you,
Everybody sees you the way I see you, darling,
When you're lying there.
Track Name: Bleeding
I've got change on my mind, and it's scaring me.
Or maybe it's my mind that's changing on me.
If I don't put my heart into everything I do,
I'm nothing.

Why don't I sing anymore?
My voice keeps getting tired as I grow old.
I reach this wall, and I slow to a crawl, but I'll take your advice, my friend.
I'll burn it to the ground.

I'm bleeding, just 'cause I know I should be bleeding.

I'm turning to my oldest friend, saying "what should I do?"
I burned the bridge we built between me and you.
I'm swimming back with an olive branch, saying "please come home."
Please come back home.

My battery's running low, I'm afraid I've got to go,
It's been nice to chat, I guess I'll see you around.
I'll say "take care of yourself" and all of those things I'm supposed to say,
When all I want to say is that I miss you.

I'm bleeding, just 'cause I know I should be bleeding.
Track Name: Girl of My Dreams
Girl of my dreams, you came into my life one night
And now I'll never forget you.
You were there with your friends, and your long black hair.
I wish I could remember.

We talked bands and discovered that we love the same.
I ask you casually if you like Justin Timberlake,
You said "hell yeah!" and I knew you were the one for me.

Girl of my dreams, I don't know a thing about you.
Girl of my dreams, I can't recall.
Girl of my dreams, I don't know a thing about you.
Girl of my dreams, I'll never know.

Meet you at the hospital, where you work the late night shift.
You get off early, and we'll go dancing.
As we're dancing, it'll rain; I'll lean in real close and say
"Will you be my steady?"

One month later and we're at your father's fencing match,
You tell me that you fence, too.
All of a sudden, there's a buzzing and I'm waking up,
What the hell am I supposed to do?

Girl of my dreams, I don't know a thing about you.
Girl of my dreams, I can't recall.
Girl of my dreams, I don't know a thing about you.
Girl of my dreams, I'll never know.

Girl of my dreams, I don't know a thing about you.
Girl of my dreams, I'll never know.
Girl of my dreams, I don't know a thing about you.
Girl of my dreams, why'd you have to go?
