about

If you're joining me here it's quite by accident. But very cool. This is where I'm assembling the next album. I can't waste time, there's so many songs. It's refreshing in a sense that I'm not borrowing from the vault. Satyr's Day Parade could have gone on forever. Writing constantly. Good thing. So onto new stuff. So far just cuts that didn't make the last album. But mostly it's stuff I wrote here. Where's the stuff. Home is where the heart is. And songs from my muse.

Track Name: Strangled (Demo)
I used to say I'd live a quiet life
But baby, that's not where you are
I used to say I'd never stay out late
Until I hitched on to your star

I wanna lay your body down
Taste your little pain ..

I used to say I had a single dream
But the ones you have are real
I used to save mine for a rainy day
All hands, all touch .. no feel

I wanna lay your body down
Taste your little pain
Take you to that little room
And make you shout my name ..

Until I'm strangled .. by my love
Yes I'm strangled .. by my love
Oh I'm strangled .. by my love
My love for you ..

I used to say I'd always keep in touch
Now you're the only one I call
I used to say I'd never stalk my prey
But now your picture's on my wall

I wanna lay your body down
Taste your little pain
Take you to that little room
And make you shout my name

'Til I'm strangled .. by my love
Yes I'm strangled .. by my love
Oh yeah I'm strangled .. by my love
My love for you (my love for you)

I wanna lay your body down
Taste your little pain
Take you to that little room
And make you shout my name

'Til I'm strangled .. by my love
Yes I'm strangled .. by my love
Oh I'm strangled .. by my love
Yes I'm strangled .. by my love

Yes I'm strangled .. strangled .. strangled
strangled .. strangled .. strangled

(My love for you)
Track Name: Without You 'Round (Demo)
(Round and round and round)

Don't ever want to be without you
Or ever have to do without you
There's nothing going on without you 'round

I never wanna wake without you
Redo those crazy dreams about you
Stars come crashing down without you 'round

Without you 'round - down I go
Twist and turn and spiral ..
Without you 'round - down I go
Twist and turn and spiral
Without you 'round .. around .. around

I always want to see you happy
Do my best to keep you that way
Bad days are a frown without you 'round

Aw let me have a room in your heart
You got a knack for making fun start
Stars come crashing down without you 'round

Without you 'round - down I go
Twist and turn and spiral ..
Without you 'round - down I go
Twist and turn and spiral
Without you 'round .. around
Without you 'round .. ya yeah - yeah

Without you 'round - down I go
Twist and turn and spiral ..
Without you 'round - down I go
Twist and turn and spiral
Without you 'round - down I go
Twist and turn and spiral ..
Without you 'round - down I go
Twist and turn and spiral

Without you 'round .. around
Without you 'round .. yeah
Without you 'round
Without you ..

(Round and round and round)
Track Name: Land's End (Demo)
Sunrise for my ocean
You're what I've been needing
Barge right in and blast me .. heat and sound

Beat my heart electric
And you are all you seem
Someone slipped your face into my dream

Watch the time .. tide is rushing in
Bang your drum .. let the fun begin
I have tried to look away
But you were always my focus
Land's end - sunrise for my ocean

Sunrise for my ocean
I've discovered meaning
Given up for lost but now I'm found

Solar face - electric
And baby's skin is coo-o-o-o-l
Just maybe I'm the ocean for your view

Watch the time .. tide is rushing in
Bang your drum .. let the fun begin
I have tried to stay away
But you were always my focus
Land's end - sunrise for my ocean

Watch the time .. tide is rushing in
Bang your drum .. let the fun begin
I have waited long enough
And you were always my potion
Land's end - sunrise for my ocean

Land's end - sunrise for my ocean
