about

The majority of this album was recorded over a 48 hour period. It might appear to be a collection of random songs placed in an order. Isn't that life for you, a series of random events that somehow connect and form a picture. Really it's about life, relationships, work, the world, loss and money. I tried to capture the sights, sounds, the smells of a real life rock band. I got that, but I got a whole lot more. But enough of my yacking, sit back and enjoy the album.

Track Name: Small Mercies
If you're ready I'll be right here, right back where you belong
While you've been out searching, well I think I found what was wrong
And I held on so tight that it hurt
Don't you tell me you don't think this works
If we could see past these blindspots that seem to be holding us back
I know we could make it if we would only just to give a chance
Because there is so much life that we had
Don't you tell me it all has been bad
But sometimes you hurt so bad, yeah you hurt so bad that it's all you can think about
I swear I gave it all I had, gave it all I had, now I am going insane about it
And it can't be just me that sees that we're breaking down by degrees
Yeah we're breaking down by degrees
Sometimes small mercies, small mercies can make all things right

But sometimes you hurt so bad, yeah you hurt so bad that it's all you can think about
I swear I gave it all I had, gave it all I had, now I am going insane about it
And it's spreading like a disease
Drowning out the sound of my pleas
But you're all that I want can't you see
That we're breaking down by degrees
Yeah we're breaking down by degrees
Sometimes small mercies could set all things right
Track Name: More Than This
So you put on the right clothes
and the things they taught you to say
Just to dress down your ambitions
For a job and some meagerly pay
But deep down there inside you
Something is starting to scream
And you wake up a year later
You realize this isn't a dream
So you go to the same clubs
that you went the weekend before
When you get there
Yeah they know you
Shake your hand as you walk through the door
But deep down you are wondering
Will I still be here in a year
And you hope there's an answer
At the end of this
No one here seems to know what they want
But they know what they're not
And they know that there's much more than this
Oh tell me there is much more than this
Tell me there's much more, much more than this
I've been watching this whole thing for so long
That I can almost say how it works out
Am I wrong?
Am I wrong?
No one here seems to know what they want
But they know what they're not
And they know that there's much more than this
Oh tell me there is much more than this
Tell me there's much more,
there has got to be much more than this
Track Name: God Bless the Honest Man
God bless the honest man, whoever he is
And when you find buy him a drink
Because I never met no one who didn't want nothing
From coins in his pockets to good thoughts to think
The businessman wants his books to be balanced
Projections of growth well into next year
The worker he wants to be off in an hour
Out with his buddies drinking some beer
The banker wants some return on his money
The swindler wants someone he can take
And the doctor he wants to write a prescription
For the company that's got some new pills to make
The cops want thieves and crooks to be catching
Crooks wants cops crooked to look the wrong way
A salesman wants someone to sell to
and the politician just wants something to say
And I've stopped asking why
And I don't need an answer
As we fight to get by and we work our way through
The teacher she wants those kids to love learning
The student wants no homework tonight
The optimist he want things to get better
And the skeptics and cynics just want to be right
About the gambler who wants one more round at the table
And credit to last him until he has enough
The drinker wants one last shot at redemption
For her lover to tell her, she'll give her his love
The preacher wants converts and souls to be saving
The devil needs someone to play in his game
Me, I want money, enough for my family
And daughters and sons that will carry on my name
And I've stopped asking why
And I don't need an answer
As we fight to get by and we work our way through
God bless the honest man, whoever he is
And when you find buy him a drink
Because I never met no one who didn't want nothing
From coins in his pockets to good thoughts to think
Hell at least we'd all like some good thoughts to think
Track Name: Love Without a Rescue
Destiny beat down on me
Until the day I was set free
Endured to fight all alone
I've found someone to call my own
Every day becomes more clear
That I am better when you are near
Cynical, although I was
I'm getting smarter and it's because

Cause loving you is easy now
I don't even have to try
I don't have to wait on fate or circumstance

I've seen this world so cruel and cold
Chew you up until you fold
Dreams we've had been turned away
Destroyed by what someone did say
Let's hew the rock to which we've clung
And let this be our victory song

Cause loving you is easy now
I don't even have to try
I don't have to wait on fate or circumstance

All these times I reached out to touch
Hoping all I held inside was true
Holding to love without a rescue
Don't let the lies be true

Cause loving you is easy now
I don't even have to try
I don't have to wait on fate or circumstance
I don't have to wait on fate or circumstance
Track Name: Newtown
Until we hug again, I'll say
I look forward to the day
My heart is heavy knowing that you're gone
Even if it was tomorrow, it still would be too long
Because I am dying here with out you tonight
Until I hear your voice again I'll wait
How can there be any kindness in this fate
What could ever balance something that's so wrong
And what's the difference now that you are gone
Because I am dying here without you tonight
Let something come from this
God, let something come from this
How did it ever come to this
Let something come from this
Until I see your face again I'll stay
God grant me some deeper grace for treating me this way
My heart is broken what am I do?
My thoughts are drowning in memories of you
I am going on but how can that be right
Because I dying here without you tonight.
Track Name: Pennies from Heaven
Every time is rains it pours, Pennies from heaven
They just keep coming more and more, pennies from Heaven
They're everywhere stacked on the floor
They're even rolling through the door
Look there are more than before, these pennies from heaven
Every time I sleep at night
There is money everywhere in sight
I don't know if it's right
But I ain't putting up a fight
I don't need a butler but I might with these pennies from heaven
Pennies are rolling down the street
Pennies in the twinkle of the eye, in the shimmer of the smile of the people that I meet
Every time I start my day
I'm just so grateful don't know what to say
It's much more than the bills I pay
I got so much I give sums away
More keeps coming everyday , Pennies from Heaven
These pennies from heaven
