about

This Is The Go isnt really an album.
That is...i didnt have the time to properly record the way I have for the past decade.

Life sort of dictates what you can and cannot do, and sometimes we have to sacrifice our loves for things we HAVE to do. This past year has been a great year for me except that I had NO time to write or record.

The only time i could is when i was house sitting, both over Christmas and earlier this year.

Over the course of 7 Days, this album was created from start to finish, written, recorded and (haha) mastered.

Knowing my window of oppurtunity was extremely limited, i made my mind up to simply cut the cute shit and record everything on first takes. Save for some exceptionally terrible takes, most of this album is exactly that....the first time playing the solos, the first time playing the parts, the first time singing the vocal parts. While there are numerous OBVIOUS blemishes or mistakes, with this in mind, you can better understand the project.

The album was created using what little i had at my disposal. For the most part, all i had for drums are a few hand drums and a medium drum played with a mallet for the bass drum. I used 3 different guitars, which is 2 more than i needed and 3 more than i can play.

I wasnt going to release this album so as to not "tarnish" my image of perfection...then i was, then i wasnt..... till i got over it and just decided to stop being a bitch...after all, i spent more time thinking about it than making it and the truth is, IF you are reading this, you are one of five who will hear any of it. And for that you have my sincerest gratitude.


And so,

this is for YOU. This is for ME. And this is the go that came and went with the time.







































But dont worry....a new album is already in the works...only this time, the weather is nice, the days are longer and i will be making a point of setting aside the time to do it right.

Thank you!


And a big thank you to Daniel and Nadine McGonigal for having me house sit/letting me use the basement...and also Black Socks for the brotherhood and camaraderie.

Track Name: Denile
You Picked Me out you saw me standing in the middle
and from your mouth your heart got out for a little

who could deny you your things
im in denile

the parting words were poorly versed in the riddle
you picked me out you saw me standing in the middle

who could deny you your things
im in denile
Track Name: Sight of Some Self
What do i gotta do, prove im better than you?
i gotta pick a particular picture of myself
and put it out as the person that i want you to think i am

You want competition
you wont listen your mission is to continue pissing as you fish for admission
you want a higher position or a higher paid salary

you dont care about anything at all
you dont care where you live
you dont care where you fall
yet you need to admit that you lost
sight of yourself

Why do i do it?
do i really give a shit about how many hits i get
i light another cigarette
i think about the time that i really used to be alone

i used to be sad now i wanna go back
to a time and a place, some space and my tracks
and act on the meaning of what i think it is to live

you dont care about anything at all
you dont care where you live
you dont care where you fall
yet you need to admit that you lost
sight of yourself
Track Name: Speed of There
take your time
do your life
you dont need to worry anymore

its you to choose
what to do
you could be anything that you want

if you only knew about your waste
you would give time to whatever it takes

take your time
make up your mind
moving at the speed of one who's there

if you only knew about your waste
you would give time to whatever it takes
and you wouldnt think yourself a lonely fool
Track Name: War Song
im not the one to think you know
im not the one who told you so
im distant from relative

the picture painted itself again
since never ending sun began
im different from regular

dont bring your war round here
dont bring your war round here

what words ive got for god and i
i like a lot im doing fine
im content with living

no other name than the one ive got
i had a hope but all hope is lost
im cleaning my image

dont bring your war round here
dont bring your war round here
Track Name: I'm Gone
Its just a matter of the dicipline im missing it
i think id rather make the music your listening
if i dont got em, im walking away

dont tell anybody
this is my record
dont tell anybody
im gone

I guess i couldnt be any further from relevant
im 31 i hurt my back and i am overweight
and i am tired and i am trying to sleep

dont tell anybody
this is my record
dont tell anybody
im gone

Life to me is a test of the will
Track Name: Do I Don't
cold bold old and sold your soul
told your role is a free man
but you shake when your still
alone is home and on your own
the bird has flown
youll have your peace when your dead

blindsight till hindsight
you dont mind to write
but no time at night will lend itself to you

often i task myself too much
till i dont do anything
i dont idle
i dont drive
do i dont

wanna grow up i think i ihad enough of important stuff
i dont know if i am rusted or open to the flow
fueling my name from my veins to brain
and the pain is the same as it used to be

well with age comes change
with change comes range
but the feelings the same and the game is not made for losers
or the kind

often i task myself too much
till i dont do anything
i dont idle
i dont drive
do i dont
Track Name: Maybe Just Maybe
i know i know

maybe just maybe
i may be crazy
maybe baby
youre too good for me

i know i know
Track Name: Guilty Heart
your Minds been spinning in filthy water
noone has come to clear the drain
you over flow now,
rotten floorboards are no longer fit to hold the weight
you speak in riddles and cryptic poems,
not even sure you know what your saying
and now you listen and now you see it
you only ever tended to the surface stain

guilty heart you try to talk to god
you dont know anyone who sees it like you do
in our lives we got to make it right,
we got to make it right or we learn to live anew
in your heart there is an empyt part
but you dont act the part cuz the world has made you gray

Theres still hope now its always been there
defined by what you make of your time
you wont get paid, man, until its over
the currency is made of piece of mind

guilty heart you try to talk to god
you dont know anyone who sees it like you do
in our lives we got to make it right,
we got to make it right or we learn to live anew
in your heart there is an empyt part
but you dont act the part cuz the world has made you gray
Track Name: Blue Is The Heart
call me call me call me
what you want
ill be your pet
any attention at all is good

be bad to me
put me in a position to have to fight you
or anything

if this is modern love
i havent a choice
what good is my voice
in the resounding scream

we have our differences
your right i do not care so much
to make a thing of it

you killed my heart the moment you lost control of your toungue
while i might be an asshole

Thats alright
ill just make time for these lonesome, lonesome heart blues
i dont mind i mean i guess im fine
its better than mixing it up with you
cuz i havent got the heart

Call Me Call Me Call Me
Ill Be your pet, when im desperate
anything

falling falling falling
i think im falling for it all over again

you killed my heart the moment you lost control of your toungue
while i might be an asshole

Thats alright
ill just make time for these lonesome, lonesome heart blues
i dont mind i mean i guess im fine
its better than mixing it up with you
cuz i havent got the heart
Track Name: Seeds In Their Lines
sunrise on my eyes today
think i finally found a way to live
my mind is on my side today
im not broken anymore
high five to the gods today
where i can finally say what i feel
my life is alive today
think ill write another song
think ill write another song

i got the mind on lock down and the seasons on time
i dont need to be told i got My seeds in their lines and you know
im planting them so they grow
when im making decisions i dont need to listen
to the things people say cuz it aint their business
i dont worry about it no more

sunrise on my life today im not tired and i can fly where i want
my time is the price i pay for the giving and the getting off
my mind is confined today to staying in the positive
my mind is confined today to staying in the positive
Track Name: Why Ask
why ask you
what am i to do?
is not alone where my peace resides
why ask?
you wouldnt know the feeling
you can see the views but you cant be my mind
oh darling
i got a reason for loving and i dont need to answer anymore
your question is perfectly warranted if you dont know
what it is like to be alone and in love

With yourself
where are you going is growing a part of the plan?

I dont have to have it anymore
if it dont feel right
it aint me
you struggle or you love it
try to keep myself above it
a recluse or a puppet
and you know im involved in a different kind of living
ive been getting cuz ive been giving
busy outside
busy within
and i dont want to know

why ask you
what am i to do?
is not alone where my peace resides?

I dont have to have it anymore
if it dont feel right
it aint me
you struggle or you love it
try to keep myself above it
a recluse or a puppet
and you know im involved in a different kind of living
ive been getting cuz ive been giving
busy outside
busy within
and i dont want to know
Track Name: This Is The Go
I aint a whisperer
i aint my brother
i aint a genius
i aint no other

couldnt help if i
hadnt noticed i
was a bit behind on you
in another life
im sure to get it right
but this is the go that came and went with the time

i aint a pistol load
i aint motionless
i aint approachable

couldnt help if i
hadnt noticed i
was a bit behind on you
in another life
im sure to get it right
but this is the go that came and went with the time
