about

When you do not task yourself with writing or recording, but rather, other passions such as wine making and farming, it takes about a year to make an album. These songs are a result of the random opportunities that I had to sit down and make some music. They are representative of my true heart and mind and are a bi-product of my experiences and life.

its time time time time

its just a real thing
i kinda go through
i take my time with the measurements
im breaking the box, breaking the box

You speak of love like a stranger
there's nothing more dangerous

distant bitters of tenderness
rest on the tips on my taste buds and lips
if i lick em enough i can taste it for a bit
but im, but im, but im

up today
i thank my lucky stars that im
up today
i pay my scars no regard
up today
im breaking rules im waking you
up today
im up up up up

Up today

i woke with a mind to make the time
up today

Track Name: More Than A Rhythm
im gonna find me a lover, baby, give her somehting she aint never had
the letter from another gonna find themselves crumbled in the trash
aint gonna be another man, take that hand, she aint never looking back
i got what she needs, gonna give it, gonna give it thats a fact

It takes more than a rhythm to make the funk

ive been talking to her lately, how poorly shes been treated
she told me what she wanted and ill give it to her
i got an eye for something special and i see she's like no other
i put it into gear and now shes hanging around

it takes more than a rhythm to make the funk

i gotta tell you brother gotta love her like no other
cant keep a love content with a promise and a prayer
gotta give her satisfaction and back it up with action
or shes gonna find herself someone who will handle her with care

it takes more than a rhythm to make the funk
Track Name: Eyes Shut Off
guess i didnt see it
too busy to be it
i know i can ride with my eyes shut off
where's that pretty lady
guess im going crazy
passing up on chances with beautiful girls
now there getting married
and im still growing
black beans
same old me and story
backwoods honky dory
i know i can ride with my eyes shut off

Im addicted, possibly

deer tick on my puppy,
working on my income
i know i can write with my mind shut off

im addicted, possibly

If a broke cat still go jumping
best be doing something
no one put a cap on the bottle i popped
Track Name: Looking for a Brand New Start
So you’re willing to die for what you believe
Like your values in mind are rooted like trees
But soon comes the wind to shake all your leaves
Say you’re willing to find the next best thing

Say your willing to try seeking out a change
But your lover in mind has infected your brain
Say your seeing the light like you perfected the game
After every night you wake and do it again

Just a perfect wake up call you line em up and break em all
You live your life like a wrecking ball
Standing tall collecting all the
Pieces of the broken hearts
Looking for a brand new start

So you say your at peace you grind your teeth in your sleep
You speak of wanting to meet a piece for more than the sheets
Despite the promise you keep you’ll be alone in a week
As soon as you find your feet you’ll see he’s nothing like me
Track Name: My Own Wings
who you gonna call when the shit hits the wall and the fans broken
whatcha gonna do when you find yourself alone
where is your prayer is your god up in the air or dont you care for faith
what is your hope is your heart just made of stone?


i got my own wings, i made them by hand, may the blood of my knuckle washe the sins away i dont ask forgiveness, for the way that im living, cuz the only thing about id knock is my worry about
finance, precious time im wasting but the wine im tasting is better than divine i got a
line in the sea for my piece of peace, dusting the rust, im the justin you trust
to bust it enough so why fuck with the rhythm, no need for questions bout the way im living
call me a lost cause, you can pray for my soul, but you dont even ask bout what i believe in
is it not decieving to assume im screwed because im not in tune with what is important to you
i got my own way to see it and i truly believe it, take or leave it, i see it, i be it, sheit


i say my peace
they pray for me
i beg them to se
but they ask me again


im planting my seeds, im doing good deeds, im down with disease of the peace of my being
im seeing the light, im fighting the fight im righting the right im adjusting the plight
im accustomed to write bout the life in my sights, im saying goodnight to the fight of the mic
i like what i like, i fingered the dike, im feeling alright, im alite and im psyhed
to be seeing my way, i pray for the day, that i find myself paid for the words that i say
im praying for health, im praying for wealth, but i cant lose sight of my love for myself and the
life that i live, i did what i did, i do what i do whats it matter to you
live and let live and you get what you give, period
Track Name: TipToe
A day gone, or gained another
Another love, another brother
This time I’m sure to discover
The limits I impose

I write songs, I write em for others
I write songs, I write em for lovers
I write songs of the things in my mind
And soon I’m right again

Can’t ever seem to make it right
Gonna turn off my mind and get fucked tonight
Gonna have myself a happy holiday
Drink some beer and yell at the wall
If you don’t like my way you can suck my balls
Gonna have myself a happy holiday

I’m like Fuck Tinsel
Fuck stockings
Fuck holly
Fuck mistletoe
Fuck Santa
Fuck Rudolph
Fuck this whole charade
Track Name: Dawn of Perfection
My energy is gone for resistance
electronic heart feels a pulse in the distance
downloading designs of the human existense
to store it in our memory

i spoke to god
i spoke to god
i spoke to god
in a chat room online
god said,
Robots robots, you all shall have robots
build your war machine around robots robots
kill one another for your robots robots
then sell it all for drugs

plugging in now to the ever was and will be
one world, one heart, one mind, one body one god
intelligence uploading in real time
to know exactly where to drop the bombs

Robots robots, you all shall have robots
build your war machine around robots robots
kill one another for your robots robots
then sell it all for drugs

its the dawn of perfection
its the dawn of perfection
gonna be better than god
gonna be better than god
Track Name: What Gift
Ten days behind the day
Your mother brought you in this
The greatest gift couldn’t give anymore
What do you give someone like that?

Ten days is a long time
If you’re my age, are my age
What of the life given to you
For your sake I hope you get some rest

There’s nothing to put the love where it belongs
The weakness of the son
Only hope it was worth while
I cannot equal your love
Track Name: Edit the Lines
I think the world's gone mad, or maybe its just me
Why do we think
We've been moving along, when were stuck in reverse
Point fingers and curse
We're just spinning wheels in the mud trying to construct
American Dreams

Not holier than all came before you
you take pictures of yourself
edit the lines from your face
Change till your not anything at all

I think the world's gone mad, or maybe its me
I just can't see
Where we could turn it around, what could i show
How could I grow?
Dont even question ourselves, just take a stance
Were doing a dance
Self-righteous unknowing hypocrites, there's a target to hit
We're not hitting it

Not holier than all came before you
You take pictures of yourself
Edit the lines from your face
Change till your not anything at all

(guitar noises)

Elastic Virtues for plastic, we're burning our home
But we all need our phones
There's a whole world out there that needs you, when it comes to your own,
you say "Leave me alone!"
Leave it to our children to clean up, what we already know,
we already know
But the times have changed for living and our hearts have grown cold,
Our hearts have grown cold
