about

The summer of 2015 saw the completion of my 4th album, titled "Project 4". However, upon working on that album, I also came up with some other songs that wouldn't be ready for the album's release, but I wanted to expand upon them for a future release of mine.

What you will hear today is two of these tracks that I started working on during this time period. Likewise to their debut in my live performance on the 20th of September 2015, these demos consist of my vocals accompanied with my Ibanez classic/electric guitar. These tracks do however differ from their live counterparts, in the sense that they're more polished & practiced. I intend on expanding upon the instrumentals of both of these tracks, & releasing them in my 5th album, coming in 2016.

"Lazy America" is a song that is based off of a raunchy improvised demo I recorded a few months ago. It addresses some socially relevant topics (& indirect criticisms of Scott Walker), mostly focusing on how a decrease of jobs has made it more difficult for some people to find work, even though we need people working these jobs (& the government isn't trying to combat this).

"Mirrors" is a track I initially created a few months ago, based upon the chord progression & track name suggested by a former collaborator for a different project. Since then, I've added lyrics to the song, & made the title into the underlying theme that this song follows.

Track Name: Lazy America (Demo)
2, 3, 4
2, 3, 4

Lazy America, pick up your slack.
You've got a lot of jobs to fill,
and enough people to fill them.

Lazy America, clean up your act.
Don't you see the governors that make this harder than it needs to be, and

Lazy America, you're making me so tired of you.
Does helping those that want to work take so damn long?

2, 3, 4, Hey!

Counting on my fingers
Waiting for the day to come
When everything is alright

But in this country
That never seems to be the case
There's always something wrong with this place

2, 3, 4, Hey!
2, 3, 4

Lazy America, why do you have the motive to
fund the stadiums more than the schools?

Lazy America, please don't obstruct
Is equality that hard to reach in a country that claims to be free? And,

Lazy America, you're making me so tired of you.
Don't focus on the trivial, it isn't worth our time.

2, 3, 4, Hey!

Counting on my fingers
Waiting for the day to come
When everything is alright

But in this country
That never seems to be the case
There's always something wrong with this place

2, 3, 4, Hey!
2, 3, 4

Lazy America, you can turn this all around,
unless your ill-placed time & focus burns us to the ground.
Track Name: Mirrors (Demo)
Who is there for me to talk to?
Who won't use my thoughts to hurt me?
'Seems like very few who knew me in the past will get it,
but all the rest will ride the opposition down my throat, and,

There are mirrors all around that reflect each word you say.
And these mirrors are aimed right at me everyday.
There are mirrors all around that reflect each word you say.
And these mirrors are aimed right at me everyday.

And I don't ask that you agree.
I just ask that my voice be heard.
Yes, I don't ask that you agree.
I just ask that my voice be heard.

There are mirrors all around that reflect each word you say.
And these mirrors are aimed right at me everyday.
There are mirrors all around that reflect each word you say.
And these mirrors are aimed right at me everyday.

And I don't ask that you agree.
I just ask that my voice be heard.
Yes, I don't ask that you agree.
I just ask that my voice be heard.
