Through My Eyes. The song that made me want to do an album in the first place. This track was lifted from the Desolation Sound release. Local Vancouver acts. A nice concept. The moment I heard the first mix of this song I was hooked. It came blasting out of the big speakers at Desolation Sound. Like lava. It washed over me. It didn’t matter if I was on the right path or not. As far as the world revolves. But it was the right path for me. And I knew. I didn't want anyone calling the shots for me. Ever again. I'd spend the rest of my life working my ass off at a day job just so I could keep recording what I wanted. Put out my own CDs, whatever it took. Drive myself to exhaustion just to make music. If I manage to make an extra dollar, it's back in the studio I go. God made a machine. Not nearly as tall as the Eiffel tower. A machine nonetheless … xoRJ
