about

Thanks to Kurt and Barb Conklin for the use of their house. While they were on vacation, I turned their basement into a makeshift studio and recorded these songs I had floating around in my head.

about

Duck Duck Chicken Detroit, Michigan

A couple things about me. I was born in Michigan. I enjoy adventures. My newest release is Boomerang, which was made using a 4-track tape recorder and a very old computer.

I like fun. I like honest genuine people.

Track Name: Boomerang
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Life is A Cigarette
Life is a cigarette, smoke it away
Life is a cigarette
Smoke it up high, smoke it up high
Smoke it up high

Life is an atom bomb, blows me away
Life is an atom bomb
Blows me up high
Blow me up high
Blow me up high
Track Name: Same Old Feeling
Take a ride down a dirt road, homebound
Hoping I see familiar faces
Drinking whiskey with a patch on my eye
Killing off all the mean old pirates
Oh...it's the same old feeling...once again

Looking into the depths of the serious
All I find is a joke worth knowing
Never know exactly who I'm supposed to be
Doesn't make much difference to me
Oh...it's the same old feeling once again
Track Name: Picture the Worst
Picture the worst feeling you've ever had
Throw it out the window so it never goes away
You can drive off a cliff...and feel real bad
Find yourself in agony from all that trouble you had

I had lots of money
I had lots of cash
Too bad the landlord took everything I had
But I still have my friends
And I have my TV
And I can watch them both gracefully in the Summertime heat

Picture the worst feeling you've ever had
Throw it out the window so it never goes away
You can drive off a cliff...and feel real bad
Find yourself in agony from all that trouble you had
Track Name: Palms of Their Hands
I'm just sitting here
In my underwear
Trying to figure out my next move
Looking out the glass See the people pass
And I'm wondering what they all do

I guess I have a lot to learn
Before I understand
How in the hell this whole world works
Into the palms of their hands.

She's a wanderer
And I follow her
And forget about my troubled past
And I'm fast asleep in another dream
I'm a sailor with mast

I guess I have a lot to learn
Before I understand
How in the hell this whole world works
Into the palms of her hands.

I guess I have a lot to learn
Before I understand
How in the hell this whole world works
Into the palms of their hands.
Track Name: Toast
(Instrumental)
Track Name: MB
Waiting...
Watching...
Holding...
Holding out for you

2 PM on a Sunday afternoon
All he wants to do is look at you
These damn cars keep obstructing his view
Making love with his mind behind the air conditioning unit

Waiting...
Watching...
Holding...
Holding out for you

Just a modern day Cyrano
Standing shyly in the shadows
These damn cars keep obstructing his view
Making love with his mind behind the air conditioning unit
Track Name: Down to the River
I went down to the river to pray
To free myself
Be myself
Once again
I prayed that all the feelings gone
But it lingers on, lingers on
So I go home anyway
Just then I felt a whispering wind
Saw the whispering trees
Felt the whispering breeze
And I was saved

I went down to the river to pray
To free myself
Be myself
Once again
Woohoohoohoohoo...

Well, I went down to the river to pray
To free myself
Be myself
Once again
I prayed that all the feelings gone
But it lingers on, lingers on
So I go home anyway
Just then I felt a whispering wind
Saw the whispering trees
Felt the wonderful breeze
And I was saved
Track Name: Wish I Was
Wish I was a tree
Or maybe an apple from a tree
Or maybe a bluebird
Or a quiet bumblebee

And then the wind could carry me home
And then the wind could carry me home

Wish I was an air balloon
Floating up, beautiful for you
Or maybe an airplane
Miles, miles, miles in the sky

And then the wind could carry me home
And then the wind could carry me home
And then the wind could carry me home
Track Name: Angel of Truth
Angel of Truth
What would you do
If you were in my shoes?
Got no job
Got no home
And I'm sitting here telling you this to relieve my pain
Nights are cold but my mind is still bold
And i'm sitting here hoping to relieve my fear

Cause I'm sitting here looking around
And the world doesn't dawn a frown
And the outlook is looking alright
Whether it's day or night

Angel of Truth
Can you comfort me?
My mind, my friends, my photographs, my memories
As I sit right here
Under the old family tree
Thinking...it'll be okay

Cause I'm sitting here looking around
And the world doesn't dawn a frown
And the outlook is looking alright
Whether it's day or night
Cause I'm sitting here looking around
And the world doesn't dawn a frown
And the outlook is looking alright
Whether it's day or night
