about

Here are 4 songs that I put together on a break from touring back in January 2014 at Single Engine Studios in Baltimore,MD. They were recorded by Tim Kaye. These are some different sounding tunes than the type I usually write. If the letter A is green, and the letter B is orange, the letter C must be green as well. At least that's how they appear in my head. So, naturally, it makes sense that these songs are in the key of blue...
Order the 7 inch vinyl record version of these tunes and get a free unreleased download and a cool package with mixed colored vinyl and some inserts featuring some cool stuff I put together..
limited to 300 pressed
Order the 7 inch from OGC records.

Track Name: The Devil May Care
The Devil May Care

Yeah I just wanna’ wake up next to someone that I love
But lately I’ve been passing out beside myself alone
A drink to drown the blues away, a Pill to make ya’ numb
Sweet melancholy’s rocked me in her arms since you’ve been gone
A picture in a broken frame, that mask I see right through
This ashtray overflowing with these memories of you
I’m dangling on puppet strings, that’s why I hang around
You have you’re cake and eat it too but never gain a pound

Look out kid, ya’ should have known better
They said if you were lucky, you’d outrun the Devil
But it’s too late you’ve gone off the handle
And burned the final candle down

My blanket on this bed of nails, you’re secrets underneath
I speak to you straight from my heart, you lie right through your teeth
My somber state awaits the day, we pas this way again
But Time don’t turn the other cheek, it has the upper hand

Look out kid, ya’ should have known better
They said if you were lucky, you’d outrun the Devil
But it’s too late you’ve gone off the handle
And burned the final candle down

So paint these walls with waterfalls and pour one more for me
I’ve let her go, god bless her soul “wherever she may be”
But shallow shadows echo from the graveyards of my mind
You’re lost and gone forever and I ain’t that far behind

Look out kid, ya’ should have known better
They said if you were lucky, you’d outrun the Devil
But it’s too late you’ve gone off the handle
And burned the final candle down
