award-winning percussive rock-folk from Baltimore, MD

A Perfect Day.
This tune appeared on the album Another Life / Another Live buy it on CD here.

Once I had intelligence
And once I had the will
But sometimes all the lines a hard life finds redefine our tale
And the dreamer deep inside of me was eventually a casualty
I think the things I couldn’t think and fight the fights I couldn’t win
Inside my head.

 

I unwrapped the star this year but it wasn’t where I’d dreamt of being
And as the paper fell away
The glitter fell away
The kids weren’t there but I just don’t care
She wanted plastic and I’d thought so hard for wood this year
They can open them alone
I paid for all this stuff
Ain’t that enough
I’m leaving

The winter came on oh so hard
And every muscle aches
From 40 years of hoping passion’s all it takes
Too old to leave a pretty corpse
Too young to just forget
I’ll surprise you all with the poison in my head
The poison in my head

It’s the perfect weathered grey
The perfect winter’s Day
As I climb into the sky
I scribbled all the things I could’ve said
You’ll be sorry when I’m dead
You’ll all be sorry when I’m dead
now just once I’m gonna seize the day…

I’m falling I’m falling

The first one to the scene
They took everything they could get from me
And the doctors that came next
They feared the worst
That I was uninsured
The ink upon the note had run with the snow and blood and slush
It was a Christmas miracle they said
That if I wake
That I will Live

But I’m flying I’m flying…
