about

2008 Album recorded at Stratboy Studios. Lots of nice guitar work on this. Also some of my best vocals (imho). Some funky stuff, some slowies, some real variation in writing. I'm pretty proud of some of this stuff. I hope you enjoy it.

Track Name: Off The Hook
You got me runnin' got me scared
Pulling out what's left of my hair
You got me dazed and confused, just like that old Led Zeppelin tune
I didn't know what to say I was relieved when you went away
Alone in an unfamiliar place your telephone call put a smile on my face

I'm off the hook, off the hook
Your telephone numbers right out of my book
I'm off the hook, it's out of my mouth
You and me are headed South

Well I escaped, I got burned
Another lesson in life I learned
Learn 'em easy or learn 'em tough
Keep on hurting till you leared enough
I didn't know what to say, we had a fight the other day
I didn't want to tell you there and then
It's time to break up with you again

I'm off the hook, off the hook
Your telephone numbers right out of my book
I'm off the hook, it's out of my mouth
You and me are headed South

Cos baby we're through, you and I
And baby you know I got no reason to lie, oh no.

You got me runnin' got me scared
Pulling out what's left of my hair
You got me dazed and confused, just like that old Led Zeppelin tune
(And it's not Stairway To Heaven baby...)
Track Name: Tongue Tied & Twisted
How do I convince you? Make you understand?
When all the words I use just sound so second hand
I don't know what to say I'm tongue tied and twisted today
Words don't come so easy when you're so unsure
If words were Gold or Diamonds I'm a man who's poor
I don't know what to do, I'm tongue tied and twisted cos of you

Ah you could catch me with a smile I'm like a falling leaf
Blown in all directions by the power of your breeze
I'm begging darling please you got me on my knees

You're holding me at gunpoint, feel like I've been shot
Unsteady on my feet like I took one to the heart
But I'm not gonna fall I'm tongue tied and twisted that's all
There are weapons I could use but I'm not firing back
My Pony galloped to the hills along the track
I don't know what to do, I'm tongue tied and twisted cos of you

Ah you could catch me with a smile I'm like a falling leaf
Blown in all directions by the power of your breeze
I'm begging darling please you got me on my knees

This road that I am travelling, there is no useful map
You can look ahead all you want but there 'aint no looking back
There's no signs that can guide me to a destination sure
I don't want to be a travelling man anymore

How do I convince you? Make you understand?
When all the words I use just sound so second hand
I don't know what to say I'm tongue tied and twisted today

Ah you could catch me with a smile I'm like a falling leaf
Blown in all directions by the power of your breeze
I'm begging darling please you got me on my knees
Track Name: What Happened to America?
1963 a Mother tucks her baby in safely for the night
Radio Newsflash just coming in...Kennedy shot - that's right
Asassins' bullet just cut him down now he's still and cold
It feels like the end of hopes and dreams
I don't know nothin' 'bout it 'cos I'm 6 weeks old
Oh what happened in America?
Oh what happened to America?

Cut to five years later and a different child, one with Yellow skin,
A village is burning with a Napalm fire - that's how they think they'll win
But there's no victory at the end of a rifle they don't understand
They just keep on making the same mistakes, Iraq - Afghanistan - or Vietnam
Oh what's happened in America?
Oh what's happened to America?

Oh what happened to America?
Oh what happened to America?

They're circling the wagons on the TV screen - arrow taken in the arm
John Wayne and the Settlers shoot the Indians down
-so they can start a farm
You can plant your flag where you damn well choose
That don't make it yours
And all the corporations in your world won't give you that right to take a heart by storm
Oh what happened in America?
Oh what happened to America?
Track Name: Neck Pains
John the Baptist pushed his luck a bit too far
King don't like no prophet who's a big time star
Step-Daughter pulled a trick on him for her Ma
Baptist is singing the blues

Anne Boleyn lay down upon the chopping block
Executioner took her head clean off
Thought she had a cold now she got a cough
That's why she's singing the blues
That's why she's singing
That's why she's singing the blues

Marie Antoinette went to the guillotine
Laid out with her head snugly in between
Ended like a Cabbage in a Red Tureen
That's why she's singing the blues
That's why she's singing
That's why she's singing the blues

Isadora Duncan in an open top
What a lovely scarf Isadora got
Tangled in the wheels before she could shout stop
That's why she's singing the blues
That's why she's singing the blues
Yeah, that's why she's singing the blues
Track Name: Letting Me Out
They clipped my wings so I can't fly
They caged me up so I won't try
They chained my feet so I won't run
Put me in a place I can't see the Sun
But one way or another they're letting me out
(Maybe I'll find some forgiveness)
Letting me out, letting me out of here

Don't take no Judge to say I was wrong
All I need to know was the sentence was long
I was just a kid when I took that life
Maybe we'll meet up soon on the other side
But one way or another they're letting me out
(Maybe I'll find some forgiveness)
Letting me out, letting me out of here

Letting me out, letting me out of here...
Track Name: Forbidden
I look up as she walks by
Looks so good don't even try
My buddy looks at me to say
Haven't got a chance so pray
Oh no that's why she's forbidden
Why she's off limits to me

I stare at him and wonder why
He is laughing with his eyes
I stand up to take a shot
Pulls me back says better not
Oh no that's why she's forbidden
Why she's off limits to me

He says you'll take your life in your hands
Won't you listen to me
Says you're taking one hell of a chance
Just you wait and see

I watch that girl and understand
As she kisses a Gorilla of a man
(And he don't share)
Track Name: Don't be Confused
When the seas evaporate
And the desert blooms again
When the moon above drifts away
I'll be loving you

When the Eiffel Tower turns to rust
When the Pyramids are ground to dust
When the Sun has snow on it's crust
I will be loving you

So don't be confused at the words I say
It really doesn't matter anyway
All I you need to know it's me you have to choose
I've nothing left to lose so baby don't be confused

When the stars are dead and cold
Black holes converge and then implode
There'll be a bright light shining through
I'll love you in that universe too

When this world no longer turns
And the sun has ceased to burn
There'll be something moving there
I know it's true 'cos my life revolves around you
So don't be confused
Track Name: Dog Tired
Dog tired
Dog tired
My brain
Hard wired
Asleep at work
And got fired
All because I'm dog tired
For love of god
Keep quiet
Can't you see I'm dog tired?
Track Name: Six Time Loser
I met you at a party some years ago
I still remember the night
You were looking good I remember your hair
Crowned with Golden porch-light
The centre of attraction that you wanted to be
The target of affections held so secretly
I could never have guessed that you were such a mess

A six-time loser what the hell is going on?
A six-time loser how could you get it so wrong?
A six-time loser how did it come to be?
Should have known you'd be a seven time loser with a guy like me

There were far too many lovers or so I heard
That just came and went
You tired of them after a week or two
Or when their money was spent
You roll the dice you get six spots
One for all the love you've lost
I could never have guessed that you were such a mess

A six-time loser what the hell is going on?
A six-time loser how could you get it so wrong?
A six-time loser how did it come to be?
Should have known you'd be a seven time loser with a guy like me

I should have known
I should have known
I should have known
I should have left you standing there
Standing all alone

The centre of attraction that you wanted to be
The target of affections held so secretly
I could never have guessed that you were such a mess

A six-time loser what the hell is going on?
A six-time loser how could you get it so wrong?
A six-time loser how did it come to be?
Should have known you'd be a seven time loser with a guy like me

You should have known
You should have known
You should have known
You should have known
Track Name: Against The Tide
I been taking the hard road all my life
There's other routes that I don't like
Oh I know the ocean is wide
But I sail against the tide
So come on baby come along for the ride

I been climbing uphill all my days
And I am getting tired in many ways
Oh I know the ocean is wide
But it's time for me to find
Just who I am so come along for the ride

Oh we can set out for the sun
Leave your troubles behind, every one
In no time at all we will be gone and we'll have won

Ooooh yeah!

There's only one problem I have got
Don't got no boat, don't got no yacht
Oh I know the ocean is wide
But we'll make the other side
As stowaways so let's go hide

Oh we can set out for the sun
Leave your troubles behind, every one
In no time at all we will be gone and we'll have won

Oh I know the ocean is wide
But I sail against the tide
So come on baby come along for the ride
Ooooh yeah! Uh-huh!
