The Race 04:36
I’m dreamin’ – in brown and blue I looked out – found something new They say – gotta follow through But I never had that point of view, that point of view The Race runs through I’m drownin’ – in black and white Some say – it’s wrong or right I never, never followed through And I’m not afraid of the view, of the view, of the view The Race runs through The Race runs through The Race runs through The Race . . . Fifty years tearing down walls Now they build them up again Strange instead of hammer and stars Old scars opening The Race runs through Back to back and side to side Now they dig the great divide Over under in to you Now I don’t know what to do Pain and fear and hate and grief Now it stands in stark relief What would they have us do? The Race runs through The Race runs through The Race runs through The Race . . . Fifty years tearing down walls Now they build them up again Strange instead of hammer and stars Old scars opening Fifty years tearing down walls Now they build them up again Strange instead of hammer and stars Old scars opening, they’re opening The Race runs through Runs through Runs through Runs through

Transparency 04:08
Can you see through me? Apparently transparency’s going around Stop watch, clock stop Fears of gears are going round Ship slip short trip Seems we’ve run aground And I might seem to lose from me A measure of my transparency The answer lies deeper than you see Why might we leave With all we left behind? I might believe I’m willing to run out of time The days ahead are drifting Shifting out of line But I couldn’t keep it covered this time Can you see through me? Time casts a shadow that follows along Watch stops, clock drops Years no longer matter now Sail ship, day trippin’ over the bow And I might seem to lose from me A measure of my transparency The answer lies deeper than you see Why might we leave With all we left behind? I might believe I’m willing to run out of time The days ahead are drifting Shifting out of line But I couldn’t keep it covered this time

Underground we didn’t fear Oh the weight of it all Found a pose Image unclear We didn’t see the fall Looking back on Charing Cross Station Looking back on Charing Cross Station Lost in my head I can’t feel it anymore Try to hold on Drifts away Had to face the telling mirror See the truth of it all Failed to heed the warning clear We feared the jaded call Looking back on Charing Cross Station Looking back on Charing Cross Station Lost in my head I can’t feel it anymore Try to hold on Drifts away Charing Cross Station. . .

Learning How 03:29
Rain coming down In my head I found my way Guiding in to this gray day And I know What I’ll be When I run When I fall down How am I supposed to feel? Tell me how I’m supposed to feel? Every time I fall, I fall forever Down and around Time fly Ever fear appears so near And every time I fall I’m learning how Pain coming down Found a way Around the day Loneliness will never stay And I know What I need When I hope When I rise up Never fear, the road is long Never fear the road you’re on Every time I dream, I dream forever Down and around Time fly Ever hope appears so near And every time I dream I’m learning how I’m learning how

ShadowGames 04:46
Losing five to seven Moving on You come together Very strong Sealed in time forever Here you come Games in shadows Never see the sun Framed in malice Never get it done Look around 360 You are one Build a cookie cutter For your soul You fail to listen Already know Point you in direction Watch you go Games in shadows Never see the sun Framed in malice Never get it done Breathe out confusion so sincere Nothing more than empty fear And I’ve had enough Can’t swallow anymore You found your voice – megaphone By George you’re loud And not alone But five million fools No better than one Games in shadows Never see the sun Framed in malice Never get it done Breathe out confusion so sincere Nothing more than empty fear And I’ve had enough Can’t swallow anymore No, no more

Everything 04:20
Hey - when you feel life going under Gather hope, might save the day And when your nights are full of thunder Little light will guide your way So don’t fear What you cannot see may be just the key Hidden very near Hold on tight Please don’t give in Find the right way Then go in You win a single spin Wager everything Don’t turn round The way is near It’s a maze But can be clear Don’t fear, a door appears Leads to everything You’ll find everything Hey you with a life that’s full of Mondays Get outside, see the light of day And as you seek for a better someday Take a hand and guide the way And don’t fear What you cannot see may be just the key Hidden very near Hold on tight Please don’t give in Find the right way Then go in You win a single spin Wager everything Don’t turn round The way is near It’s a maze But can be clear Don’t fear, a door appears Leads to everything You’ll find everything Forget to feel it all Forget the tears that fall Forget the fear – lying over all

Shattered 03:34
Here comes the gray rain Wash over me Colors running Am I fading? In too shallow Still too strong for me Try to stand, fall Spinning I can’t see Oh, so many years spent drowning You’d think I’d learn to swim Blindly I built a life safe within Sound, but empty space And now slowly drifting away Hear comes the white dawn Wash over me Bring me up from the water On to ground I need Not safe, not sure Not guaranteed Where I will stand And come to see Oh, too many years spent drowning I think it’s time to swim Blindly I’d built a life safe within Now I step into a world Where I’ll be Not safe, not sure Not guaranteed

Sunday Drive 03:04
Sunday drive Ever after Holy life Growing faster But this time To face the wind I sense disaster ahead We test the mountain Running scared we dare the valley Shadows gather on our trail And there we’ll find the answers Running time Ever changing There goes mine Rearranging my fears Like the icy chairs on shattered liners There’s no self-deception finer Every time I think about it Lose my mind elsewhere But there I find the answers Care the Father and the Son Dare to leave the task undone Bare your soul to everyone There above the rising sun Fare thee well my noble one Share it all, leave none To find the answers To find the answer To find the answers

The Veil 04:35
Some dreams fail to last Torn down by the fools in the black masks Some truths drifting away Washed over by the whim of day You’ve got nothing to fear It won’t come to this Shackled by words from the sky And we reach for the wind as it rushes by To be free to live by a song Grows too dear to meet the debt of the wronged The truth served all along No gold can help the soul to belong You’ve got nothing to fear It won’t come to this Prison raised with best intent And we reach for the wind as the veil is rent While every answer is hidden under fear and jealousy The truth still lingers over all of those with eyes to see This disillusion and confusion Hope will find a way To be free to live by a song Grows too dear to meet the debt of the wronged The truth served all along No gold can help the soul to belong While every answer hidden under fear and jealousy The truth still lingers over all of those with eyes to see This disillusion and confusion Hope will find a way You’ve got nothing to fear It won’t come to this Prison raised with best intent And we reach for the wind

The evening light lays low Hills are gold Sun goes down again The river murmurs light Welcome night Sun goes down again Standing alone Pale light lingers on Come away Night’s waking A path long tread he walks Beckoned on Sun goes down again A whisper soft and clear Home is near Sun goes down again Journey’s through Here where it’s ever new Gone the day Night’s waking The weight of memories gather round The rush of time in every sound The wage of years is always found Journey’s through Here where it’s ever new Gone the day Night’s waking

He heard the distant thunder Bent his head and waited The night was deep The stars were hid above And yet the fear he should have felt Somehow remained abated He looked inside and recognized the truth The cost He’s waiting to count the numbers The loss Lies hidden while wisdom slumbers How long the night How short the day Step in to light Don’t lose the way The weight of ages covers all And lies in every footstep Beyond the Dream Beyond the near and known You find the end of all things

about

A labor of love recorded over the course of three years in my home studio. We'd performed strictly acoustic ballads for many years, but had always wanted to record something more driven and powerful.

About Time was the result. Hard to believe it was over 5 years ago!
