this is too far
the siren knows
our time is up
so bring what counts
but leave some there
we haven't room

it's an ocean,
it's vast and unspoiled and too cold
it's contagious,
just not from shaking hands

the blues and reds
grab what's still here
feelings not tied down
and take some sand
to fill the gaps
it's all that's left

it's a skyscraper,
dancing to great heights with half-smiles
it's a white flag,
it's time to quit their game

from kindness down
these buildings came
full of promise, full of walls
with sadness gone
the silence grows

strong but not enough
built for something else
woke-up but it's still dark
and light slowly descends

it's a city,
it's lights and alive and on fire
it's a fresh start,
it's bleeding and fury and song
it's an interstate,
shortcut to things not that different
i'm so overwhelmed,
but you know where i am

Electronic musician & singer/songwriter. It has been said that my music is equal parts acoustic guitar, control voltage, and verse. I can't really argue with this.

Also, Joe Biden called me clean and articulate once.
