about

New single (video link: www.youtube.com/watch?v=rg_wOtSMBOc )!! I have been diligently working on a new record in between Toska tours. Finally beginning the last stretch and here is the first completed song.

lyrics

Some people will push you, try to control you
Hold you down, under the ground
They will terrorize you, scandalize you
And even enjoy watching you drown

Time and space is a mind bending thing
But this place just does not seem built for me
I pine for home amongst the stars and gas and galaxies
Seems I belong on another planet, back and forth in another century

Chorus:
World you owe me nothing, but neither do I owe you
I'll use this red light within my soul to sharpen my tools
Through time, through space, my spirit it has wondered
So, sail on, sail on, my little honey bee
Til my body can catch up with thee

I live my life one step behind my body
Like I'm watching it all unfold on TV
I watch myself, but at last I cannot stop myself
from wreaking havoc on the likes of you and me

I've seen the records, the evidence, and I have seen the proof
That I was born here but I'm sorry I got bad knees
So I look up into the sky and find it does not hold me down
Instead it dangles there like a carrot or a dominatrix tease

Chorus:
World you owe me nothing, but neither do I owe you
I'll use this red light within my soul to sharpen my tools
Through time, through space, my spirit it has wondered
So, sail on, sail on, my little honey bee
Til my body can catch up with thee

about

Red Mouth Muscle Shoals, Alabama

A strange brew of Son House, Captian Beefheart, Elvis and Nick Cave, backboned by stomping, driving Muscle Shoals rhythms. All resulting in a gospel experience through a gothic Alabama that your typical singer songwriters won't be guiding you anytime soon. ... more
