about

first LP. took longer than it should have again. oh well...

this is a selfish album. it's from a selfish era of my life. about half the songs revolve around "I" or "me". i can see myself retroactively calling it my "emo" album because some of the songs are so embarrassingly personal. and i'm a little embarrassed having written them. but sacrifices in comfort are important to art, putting yourself out there 100%, hoping others can relate. i hope YOU, the listener, find a way to relate to these songs. if you can't, i hope they serve as a welcome perspective from someone else's mind.

thanks to everyone who put up with my bitching (also known as "friends"), everyone who inspired me, everyone out there in the quantum field who has yet to be discovered who will inspire me, and every well-meaning person on this beautiful earth. i love you all.

Track Name: Violet Toes
i was a boy, but no good at the ball game
said i was a wuss, yeah that's what they'd all say
all the other boys i couldn't seem to relate
i sat alone at lunch just to contemplate
all the pretty girls they laughed at me again
little do they know i'm just as PRETTY AS THEM

in a pair of black high heels
and violet toes...
gotta wash the lipstick off
before my mom gets home

they gimme looks if they walk right past me
but i don't care cuz i'm young and sassy
it's just my secret little way to be happy
I'M DADDY'S LITTLE DRAG QUEEN

i skipped school to dress up like my mama
nobody's home.... thanks obama
i like the way this dress fits my curves
wait a sec is that a voice i heard?
the door slammed open saw the face on my dad
don't i look like the daughter that you never had....

chorus

you can call me strange!!
but I WONT TRY TO CHANGE!!
tone it down or tame!!!

you'll call it a phase!!
BUT I REFUSE TO CHANGE FOR YOU!!
SO GO CALL ME INSANE!!
Track Name: Smile
a family of 4
a mother and a child
two friends or something more
two lovers and a smile
a heartbeat bright and warm
long as the sun'll shine
the day's are never cold
until it all expires

WHAT DO I DO WHEN I MISS HER SO?
much... we could've been around longer if we tried
WHEN IT FEELS SO COLD ALONE?
and watch the scene go by while i chip away inside
IF I HAD A WISH I'D ASK!
for someone who can guide me and to them i'll confide
AND IT WONT BE LIKE THE PAST!
smile

(repeat talky poetry part)

YEAH I'LL TELL YOU I MISS MY OLD!
friends... but they don't call so they'll stay out of my life
EVEN THOUGH I'VE BEEN TOLD!
that i shouldn't be bitter i'm just paranoid inside
MAYBE I SHOULD TALK TO MY!
family... i know that i closed myself too tight
TAKE A DEEPER LOOK INSIDE!
smile

WHAT IS IT THAT KEEPS ME FROM!
feeling whole? is all the time i spend alone?
MAKING ME WHO I'VE BECOME?
secluded and bitter to nearly everyone
PRAYING FOR A RAINY DAY!
so i can step along to the song inside my mind
TO WASH MY WORRIES ALL AWAY
smile
Track Name: (Who's Afraid Of?) Dying Alone!
i don't need a counter reaction
or a spark to light my flame
give myself enough satisfaction ;)
even if you think that's lame
no i'm not afraid of chastity
no i don't believe in fate
all my thought my fantasies
they're enough to keep me sane

i am not afraid of dying alone
i can kill time with my reflection
i won't spend my nights crying at home
if i don't find a true connection
everyone's afraid of dying alone
but they all fail to see
some of us have a mind of our own
yeah, the some (sum?) of us like me

like the old saying goes
they say that opposites attract
but never mention how they repel
when the trust is not intact
my counterpart with the key to my heart
i can hear her in my dreams
but i'll be fine if it's locked forever
on the chance we never meet

chorus
Track Name: Wanna Be A Housecat/Wanna Be A Straycat
i don't understand you
who you screamin' at?
i'll lick myself clean
and i'll cuddle on yr lap

home alone again
it's where i'm always at
i got nowhere to be
i think i'll take a nap

(ohhh i got nowhere to be today)
in the world outside
there's not a damn thing that i have to do
(ohhh i got no one to see today)
i don't mind the confinement
it protects me from the rest of you

wanna be a housecat
live inside a house that's
all i need to feel alive
wanna be a housecat
live inside a house that's
a place i call mine

i don't understand you
who you screamin at?
i'll hiss and walk away
and i'll plan a new attack

all alone again
but i can't help but laugh
i'll roam around the streets
till i find another snack

(ohhh i got nowhere to be tonight)
in the world outside
running thru a constant change of scenery
it's hard to survive sometimes
it's not guaranteed for me

wanna be a straycat
you can maybe say that
i don't need no one to please

wanna be a straycat
you can maybe say that
i don't need a fucking leash
Track Name: Home
disintegration on the dance floor
falling into...
a billion pieces rearranged to
somebody new....
really should just find a way out
cuz i just won't fit (in?)
and i can see the consequences
the embarrassment....

I JUST WANNA BE HOME TONIGHT
IF YOU CAN SEE TO MY DIFFERENT SIDE
I JUST WANNA BE HOME TONIGHT
I JUST WANT A FAMILIAR SIGHT

a couple days in the sunshine
a couple nights no sleep
just enough time to let my thoughts catch
back up to me
will i end up as i want?
what even brought me here?
should i even be alive?
where will i be in a year?

I JUST WANNA BE HOME TONIGHT!
IF YOU CAN SEE TO MY DIFFERENT SIDE!
I JUST WANNA BE HOME TONIGHT!
I JUST WANT A FAMILIAR SIGHT!

do you ever feel sick?
of feeling meaningless?
at times we feel we need
to fill some destiny
it's only in your head
but sometimes i forget
when i've lost half my mind
i must've left it home
tonight

chorus
Track Name: Wonder Above
it's insatiable
and ideal unobtainable
the clientele so graceful

like the stars in the sky above
they only burn out and self destruct
no more human than all of us

strive for a false reality
i bet you'd rather keep your sanity...

you wonder whats above
a view from under, you look up
you can see the wealth but in the absence of love
yes, it's all illusion you cannot trust

the upper-tier on the other side
soaked in the privilege and they'll deny
you were a child marginalized

but that's the structure by design
some sink below while the others thrive
say it's only a fact of life,,,

I BET YOU'D LOVE TO WATCH THEIR WHOLE WORLD BURN!
A CALL TO ARMS FOR THE MISUNDERSTOOD!
AND THE SMOKE THE VOICE OF THE UNHEARD!
THE SET ASIDE! THE "UNPREFERRED"!

you wonder what's above
a view from under you look up
you can see the wealth but where the hell is the love, the love?
yes it's all illusion you cannot trust
Track Name: Morton Ave.
sometimes yr life turns shades of blue
take a walk on morton avenue
every day + night a constant rain
so grab an umbrella and all yr pain

no need to cover up what's on yr mind
we'll dance the sunset when the sun won't shine
thru all the darkness glow the golden lights
and hear the drizzle fall thru all the night

don't forget yr worries and yr fears
drag them right behind you while the clouds shed tears
can you feel the wind? the sky breathes hard
intense when nature shows it's beating heart

chorus
Track Name: Mindvision (My Vision)
do ya ever feel it when yr body stops?
and yr mood turns grey?
realization, it's a cold sensation on the warmest day

ever get the feeling?
can you pick it up?
is it true to say?
we don't need a language to communicate?
i'll feel it in yr brain?

i can paint the scene i see
and i can see the place i dream
but can't control the rain, the heat
the sanity, the pain in we

ever get the feeling you ain't from this world?
it's a lonely daze...
everyone else you get the feeling they
will only leave you estranged

ever get sick of watching someone else
repeat their pain
ever feel insane when you try to help
but you can't explain

chorus
Track Name: XOXOXO
the bitter cold to feel without a home
i'm yelling out can i come into yours??
come into you, i step into the warm
close all the doors, i wanna explore
float around the inside of you
is there an end?? i wonder
it's such a thrill. can i restrain myself??
with so much to discover

come share your thoughts with me
i wanna live inside your memory
it sounds so nice
come share your thoughts with me
i wanna live inside your ideal world
it sounds so nice

climb to the attic to see whats inside
inside your brain that makes you so bright
i wanna see the colors of your mind
and crawl thru you like a parasite
and when i'm done don't plan on going home
or outside to the weather
cause it's hard to even be alone
when i know something better
inside with you

swallow me whole, don't spit me out yet
