Standing by the edge of the world

 

“I don’t think it’s possible to have a sense of tragedy without having a sense of humour.”
Christopher Hitchens

 

“I’m throwing stones at your glass house. I call your name and watch you turn around.”

Who’s really pulling the strings? How can so few own so much? What is the truth if the truth is not allowed? Why are some lives more important than others? How did we end up here? Who needs all this information?

“I’m walking wide awake across the Rubicon”

WHOOSH !!

Down the rabbit hole.

“That which can be asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence.”

“I don’t know where I’ve been, I’ve woken up with you.
I don’t know what it means, or what I’m gonna do.
I think I may have seen two worlds collide into…
Your inner most dreams, an absolute taboo.”

What is real and what is illusion? Are facts a fiction? Is everything beyond anyone’s control? Why do birds suddenly appear every time you are near? Can the future offer hope?

“What do you do when every thing you knew was wrong?”

Why is everything built on a lie? Can you trust anything you can’t see? Do we really know how the world works?  Does every decision create a new reality? Is our universe a construct of our own imagination?

“Building monuments to love’s shattered pride, while confirming it through satellites.”

Is science fact? Is superstition nonsense? Is mathematics a universal law? Is the soul the manifestation of wishful thinking? Does good conquer evil? Who explains to the idiot? Is there some way out of here?

“Like a narrator who has lost his lines, I come down from the big sky.”

Is god whatever you want him or she to be? Does god have ears? Will god ever manifest? What does god offer the victor? Why do so many of us seem to be in gods way? Does god even care?

“There wasn’t anything left to judge, not a single memory of a thing called love.”

Are we inevitably condemned to extinction? Are the Earths resources infinite? Is equilibrium actually a thing? Is there even a chance in hell that we’ll make it to the stars? Has the end already began? Is that the fat lady singing?

“We’re falling down… but we’re not innocent.”

Can anything be changed? Is everything already written? Is sufferance a program? Is there actually a point to any of this? How can we change the world when we can’t change ourselves? Should we even try?

“Each time it’s falling towers.
Each time it’s more insane.”

Are we an intermediary species paving the way for something better? Will we destroy everything? Is A.I. humanities only future? How can technology respect life? Are we in a race against time? Is the one eyed man king yet?

“So are you just a machine?
Can you figure it out?
Are you just a machine?
Are you feeling it now?
Are you just a machine?
Are your systems corrupt?
Are you just a machine?
Hard wired to love.”

Are humans really capable of love? Is it only our desires we love? Can love be created? Is love a state of confusion? And what’s love got to do with it?

“You should have listened to your head
Instead of thinking with your heart.”

Will history forever repeat? Will there be anything left to save? Who’ll feed the ducks when we’re gone?

“If you can’t look forward then you can’t look back
If there’s nothing that you need then there’s nothing that you had.”

These are just some of the concepts and inspirations that went into the writing, recording and production of Finishing Line  An album that asks questions but gives no answers. The road is discovered by the walker. The mood is set by the sound. We are the thief who fed the wolf.  We are the tramp dancing in the rain. Instructions not included.

See you at the Finish Line.

Talking Heads

TALKING HEADS

If you love this place called earth
For all your worth you don’t come first
And those enabled by what they’ve heard
Come on speak up let’s change this world

The Duchess is on the news
The system is being abused
Our government is excused
While The Duchess is on the news

Talk to the dead
Or walk away
Talking heads
Justify what you say!

We can see there is a virus in the White house
No O M G what’s going down
We can see there is enough that reminds us
These fucks run free in crazy town!

Do you cherish this mortal coil
The life that lives on its precious soil
Then don’t be shameful and hold your voice
The corrupt untouched have made their choice

Who can want this elitist greed
Where one clique has all they need
To all those careful to hoard their wealth
You could show love and change yourself

Don’t Cry

Don't-Cry-03

DON’T CRY

Don’t ask me what you know is true
I can read you like a menu
No need to tell me ’cause I know it’s cruel
I thought about it and I never knew
Almost made it twisted haven’t you
I thought about it and then it blew

So don’t ask me if I’ll break your heart
I can see you even in the dark
No need to fake it ’cause we’re worlds apart
Through all those tears we’re meant to laugh

So don’t cry baby… please don’t cry

Come on honey you’re not sorry
You’ve got the looks that diamonds were made for
I watched you fly and we both smiled
You’re the beat that fills up the dance floor

Come on honey you should worry
You sucked it up and you gave more
As time goes by and we both cried
You’re the beat that fills up the dance floor

Don’t cry baby… please don’t cry

Don’t make me what you know is true
I can play you like a venue
No need to take me down this avenue
For all those years I really was a fool
Always played the victim haven’t you
All those years I hope you love them to

The time goes by and then we smiled
It’s like our love intensified
The time goes by and then we cried
It’s like our love was justified

Burn

 

BURN

All of the things we see, all of the things we do
Brings us closer to…

All of the things we need, all of those things indeed
Are sitting next to you.

Meanwhile I’m walking down the same old one way street…
I see myself I’m talking to myself in disbelief.

I can read or I can weep
I can dream or I can sleep

Instead of watching it burn put the fires out
Instead of blaming me girl without the slightest doubt
For we all know, we don’t know who rules the world or if our voices are heard.

Instead of watching it burn it’s time we worked this out
Instead of searching this earth it’s what we’re talking about
For all we know we don’t know just how it seems…
For love the whole planet is screaming…

All of the things we breath, all of those things we’ll be
Are just the next step to…

All of those things too far, all of the things we are
Are just the basic truth.

Meanwhile I’m walking down the same old one way street…
I see myself I’m talking to myself in disbelief.

Instead of watching it burn start putting fires out
Instead of blaming me girl without the slightest doubt
For we all know, we don’t know who rules the world or if our voices are heard.

Instead of watching it burn it’s time we worked this out
Instead of searching this earth it’s what we’re talking about
For all we know we don’t know just how it seems…
For love the whole planet is screaming…

False Flag

 

FALSE FLAG

Will someone read to me a bedtime story
Something that’ll lift me up out of the way
Hold up the light before you call me
And hold me tight and I’ll be brave

Are you going to ride the wild, wild horses?
Are you going to make like everything is coming up roses?
Are you going to bring… bring the light of day?

Have you ever wondered whether there will be time enough
Ever had to say you’re sorry when you’re only having fun?
All of the creature’s can show love,
Except for all the creatures shrouded in darkness and hidden from us.

I’ve been thinking about the events on 9/11
Is it freedom to those that we elect to govern?

So who did conceive of the official story?
Like all of my dreams were left on parade
So open your eyes before you adore me
For that was the choice that most of us made

Have you even wondered whether there will be justice done?
Ever had to say you’re sorry ’cause the man has a gun?
If only our species could show love
And attempted to see this without all the sadness that’s given to us

Fly another false flag

The Last Stealth Bomber

 

THE LAST STEALTH BOMBER

I curse the things we do
Got to be worth something to you
No one loves you like I do
Much more than life
Got to be wiser what you choose
Got to be smarter than you prove
Nothing hurts more than truth
Other than lies

When I was a child I saw a man walking on the moon
Was it for hours a minute or only seconds
Now I see whats left for me as I awaken all too soon
Was it for months a week or only days

I see a shape up in the sky it’s flying high and on my skin…
I feel the sun…
Will we just wave and look away and then it’s done
When the last stealth bomber comes…

It hurts the things we do
Got to be the first day back at school
Wish I could see this perfect view
For all of man kind
Got to be right to close the deal
With all of this anger that I feel
The injustice that is real
Plays on my mind

I want to scream I want to cry, can’t believe you wonder why…
We can’t find the perfect day
