about

Acoustique "Lost In Thought" is a project I have been working on for the last decade or so that showcases the progress of my song writing ability through the years. All of the songs that appear on this demo were recorded at home, using only my voice and acoustic guitar, a $25 dollar microphone, a few overdubs, and my PC. The song styles range from soft ballads, instrumentals, pop, straight up rock, blues, and all out progressive masterpieces. A lot of hours, days, and years were spent/wasted trying to give these songs the right feel. Listen to the album as a whole and you will see what I mean. These songs are very near and dear to my heart and follow a very common thread. "It's all or nothing now...I can't live with, I can't live without!"

Track Name: The Beginning Of The End
This is the beginning of the end, my friend
Just slip away and let the pain subside
And when you reach your peak of personal mystique
That's when you know everything is sublime
Track Name: Surreal
Running in circles, sympatico, with somebody new.
I contemplate what it takes to mistake me for a fool. Tempers will crest on the edge of one jagged twist of fate. Planets collide, forcing me to the side of this circle we call “friends”. But, I can’t justify just to let it go…Just the feeling you have when you’re there. Something inside bares it’s black, beady eyes and it’s taking the side of yours truly. And I feel surreal! And I have to find the time just to let it go. Feel my fear rising up through the air. And I can’t help but lose all my friends and I’m making amends with myself again. ‘Cause I feel so surreal, now why can’t you let it go? This is just one of those instances when all thought goes irate. Losing control, ‘least my body withholds all demeanor through this pain. I’d be the first to admit my selfish behavior. Mowing down everyone crowded around, witness my guilt turned flesh. But, I can’t justify just to let it go…Just the feeling you have when you’re there. Swallowing down all the hate that surrounds, you’re not worth it and I don’t care. And I feel surreal! And I have to find the time just to let it go. Feel my fear rising up through the air. And I can’t help but lose all my friends and I’m making amends with myself again. ‘Cause I feel so surreal, now why can’t you let it go? You just keep pushing me, you just keep pushing me down! You just keep pushing me over the edge! And I feel surreal! And I have to find the time just to let it go. Feel my fear rising up through the air. And I can’t help but lose all my friends and I’m making amends with myself again. ‘Cause I feel so surreal, now why can’t you let it go?
Track Name: Everybody's Cool
Nobody likes a no-show baby, but I’m still on your side. Now tonight who’s gonna play the fool? Everybody’s cool…with you! Why’d you have to go so soon? You left me alone to falter in ruin. Now I’m not sure how you feel about me. Was it all a dream? That the stars don’t just shine at night…when the sun goes down then we’ll turn out the light. It’s amazing, do you take me for a fool? Everybody’s cool, Yeah! Then you take a piece of my heart. You turn your head, you keep tearing me apart. Can’t you see all I want is you? Tell me that it’s true. That your stars don’t just shine at night…set them free from your heart and let them dance in my light. Could we ever be more than just friends? You’re so cool! Why did it have to end?
Track Name: The Catch
This ain’t the big one, but it sure hurts like hell and I’m too stoned to dwell on it now. You’re not the one, but what the hell, neither am I. But, that’s neither here nor, Why? Does it really matter? Every time it seems that I’m getting somewhere…I pause to dream to catch some fresh air! I’m not really sure just what it is I’m supposed to be. But, isn’t that just like me? Wouldn’t you know?
Track Name: Lost In Thought
It’s so worth it, even though it’s wrong. So many ways to waste away the day. At any given hour, you’ll find it’s all the same to blame me for my faults. A deep impression placed upon your skull, you shake it off and try it over. Now tell me who’s the fool and you point your finger at a man lost in thought. A thought that was lost! If you take your time, brushing leaves aside, there’s no telling what you’ll find! But, if it takes a while, with a certain degree of style, you may just find your inner child! It’s not over, even though it’s gone. Some say it never leaves, it just fades away. So when the mood is right, despite all past prophecies, it won’t be lost for long. So get lost in song! (I was lost in a thought... A thought I thought I had lost) You set them up just to knock them all back down. Talking to yourself even though no one is around. Just set it down, leave it now for another day. (fade away) There is something I’ve forgotten. This keeps happening way too often. I try to remember, but I can’t recall. I can’t recall anything at all. The truth I tell myself no longer compels me to remember. The truth I tell myself no longer compels me to retain.
Track Name: Capriquarius
(Instrumental)
Track Name: David's Harp
All alone in a world of in between…lost somewhere inside a memory and a dream. Speak to me, I’ve got to know where you are. Is it just me falling in love with David’s harp? Oh, and I cried…when you left us that night! I felt so alive as I reached for Dark Side! In the moon, I can still see an effigy of your face. Your tone’s so strong, you left me lonely and out of place. But, I don’t want to satisfy my gods…I won’t sacrifice. The music’s ringing throughout my ears! And I still see it in your eyes.
Track Name: Feeling Uninspired
I’m just wasting time thinking all this over. How am I supposed to find, find my four-leaf clover? In this desert wind, subtle grains do find there way in my eyes, causing my sight to go blind. It’s all a waste of time! Could you concentrate and co-exist with a lie? What was said and never done could never take the place of…feeling uninspired! Holding on to the past presents you new problems. You try to deny them and expect me to solve them. You’re at home with the notion feeling’s are sacred. But, when confronted with facts you insist we fake them. Why, when it’s all a waste of time? Could you concentrate and co-exist with a lie? What was said and never done could never take the place of…feeling uninspired! Everything gets done today whether or not it rains! The clock circles endless (endlessly)…leaving me without paddle…much less a stream of conscious dreams to submerge this psycho-babble! I’m just wasting time…thinking all this over!
Track Name: Lady Jane
Don’t know the reason you keep it down on me. But, then you try to give me sympathy. Now and then, just a little pity for this soul that’s so in need. It’s hard to make you understand these things. Feel like a puppet, so stop pulling my strings. You’re poison-berry cute, with a hell of a sting and your bite’s causing me to bleed. Two-faced, dead beat, daddy’s home…where were you when I was alone? Sent me off to kiddy camp…while you were hitting on that tramp! Sit in the pick-up, steam up the windows. What in hell made you have to go? A little sympathy is what you try to show for this soul that’s so in need. It’s hard to make you understand these things. Feel like a puppet, so stop pulling my strings. You’re poison-berry cute, with a hell of a sting and your bite’s causing me to bleed. Two-faced, dead beat, daddy’s home…where were you when I was alone? Sent me off to kiddy camp…while you were hitting on that tramp!
Track Name: My Song (Goodnight Senorita)
Lonely, is what I’ve felt for so long, hardened by this inability to conform. This may take some time to get used to, but I’ve been down this road before. And you, you’re soothing my soul while you sing along with every one of my songs, tonight! Goodnight senorita, I’ve spent a long night in your arms setting free thoughts of disarm and despair. True, false truths get you nowhere, but if there’s one thing I have learned…I’ve found a friend that’s duly concerned and compelled. To harness this magic we possess. Sultry, static reform. Open to whatever moves me, but then again, we’re both caught in the storm. And you, you’re soothing my soul while you sing along with every one of my songs, tonight! Goodnight senorita, I’ve spent a long night in your arms setting free thoughts of disarm and despair. True, false truths get you nowhere, but if there’s one thing I have learned…I’ve found a friend that’s duly concerned and compelled. Slow down…I thought you wanted commitment? Slow down…before you make me numb! At least I could have mentioned. I could never do you wrong. With faithful, good intentions you’ve become my song!

(I plead the fifth, I play to win. But, if that don’t suit you buddy, buttoned gut to chin. A big, bolshy bastard with a heart of tin. The coal miner’s daughter and a joker’s grin. He seeks for shelter from shelter seeking for him. Upon arrival, the ants come marching in. A plethora of vices, needles and pins. Placed on the bed were two young virgins. Like tits with tight asses, they smiled at him. He looked at them both, but all he saw was skin. Shit, if he’d pass this up he’d be committing some sins. ‘Cause that’s good loving, just then a voice said, “Come In!”)
Track Name: The Insect, Idol And The Impossible
Somebody told me once to cherish my youth, leaving one to conclude the message failed to get through. So much for subtlety and shortness of breath, in life a holy-must have - in death a lonely- no get. She was so young, perfect example of fun. You wouldn’t know it, but she’ll show you if you asked her to. She don’t care too much for politics and guns, nor this thing called love, ’cause, she only wants to fuck…Whoever’s closest to her…But, I’m standing right besides her…Caught in the web of the dancing spider! This sounds redundant, but it’s all that I’ve got, so why wait ‘till it falls off, let’s do it! Never stop! So much for sanctity, the powers that be aren’t really in control of my mind, my soul, my body. “Do you feel dirty like I feel dirty when I touch you there?” Good! That’s the appeal, how it’s supposed to feel. Now come on over here and get down on your knees and kneel…And do what your instincts tell ya’…Since I’m standing right beside ya’…Caught in the haze of the doubting messiah! Once again, my friend, the story stops where it began leaving me to defend just who I am. So much for silence and the eagerness to please, if romance is the cure, to question is the disease. One might say true love, like something sent from above. If looks could kill, maybe still there is luck. This went on for years, intimacy disappeared. Had to throw a wrench in the gears and steer myself clear…From these emotions that haunt me…But, you’re still standing right beside me…Caught in the grip of a long lost mystery!
Track Name: A New Set Of Knots
Some things weren’t meant to be remembered…Some things were lost along the way, that could never be replaced. If ever come a day to remember…just remember it held a significant wealth, on your frame you wore its name. It’s all or nothing now, I can’t live with, I can’t live without…It’s my choice to be heard! Cheap talk and half-truths on views horribly misconstrued. Don the guise with mysterious eyes that may look upon the past with disdain…tattoo tomorrow! Moments were made to be remembered…Not to change this simple mind, for the friends I’ve gained and lost through time. I want to be remembered…for the things that I’ve done, the songs that I’ve sung, but not for whom I’ll inevitably become. It’s all or nothing now, I can’t live with, I can’t live without…It’s my voice that is heard! It’s a place we’ve all been before, no key to unlock metaphorical trap doors. On the floor is a note, (looks like a ghost) and it reads as if tattered and torn…so, tattoo tomorrow!
