In the middle of 2011, while still very busy with all of my bands, I found the inspiration to write a few new solo tunes. They seem to fit together well. They may be rough and raw, but they are real.

Track Name: Sides
Many to the tune of one, or one thousand
Remember sight
Many to the tune of one

You them sides
taking sides
you take them sides

Define this current space
I have your trust
Mind is winning
there's a way a wind a temperature a slight difference

but i don't want to take sides anymore
Track Name: The Forward
I guess the matter (spinning matter) wonders
Its a circle selling time
and a witness
let us get it right this time
Sometimes i don't know you
I don't know me anymore
but i ask please let me wake up more alive

I pull the holdings in
with cold plans
ten million
words disappear in the forward
its your earth, its your earth
Lets reinvent the wheel all in the midst of this to feel
that we can reinvent the forward
its your earth, its your earth

There is a phantom on and off
You hear a space and time
I feel it no distance
this makes eleven
and my heart stands desert tall
there's no way the wind bleeds
when we are awake
you and me
when we are awake
i hear the heart is more silent an accent then a wave
Track Name: This is that slip
can i be the heart that lives in the center of your stone?
because i have no where else to be
there is a freedom there
so this is that slip in time
a place unknown inside the oldest thought
this is that slip in time

through creek beds and alligator sand
we the revival of love will hit the shore
with vows like a fortress to guard the stone

if intelligence is meandering
towards the lot of existence
this is that slip in time
Track Name: The gift horse
this is the same beard i wore one thousand years ago
this is the same speed my head spins in the rain
if this is a miracle it's a gift horse that I'm staring down
but it's hard to be sure if it's a miracle in this damn town

I don't think I' cursed
but that doesn't make it better
and it doesn't make it worse
Help me hold this levy up
before it starts to burst
I am my own enemy

I'm on the side of your road thumbs drawn
brown weighted eyes, pointed down, no where to run
I have this life ten times in my head
