about

Reflections on justice, rights, escape and love.

Life imprints sentience on the particles we cede back to the universe upon passing. Death is decentralization, not expiration, of consciousness. Each of our muons and protons and electrons comprises the cumulative wisdom of all that has experienced life before. We are each one, and we are each all.

For John.

Track Name: Drifting Moon / Spinning Earth
She had to leave Ohio
Find a strength she’d never known
She had to shed her skin
What she was was too far away from what she was within

You pay the price / To be yourself
When you’re not the one / The world expected

But we are each a universe
Where every drifting moon / Deserves a spinning Earth
Everything you are, we are, too.

She followed her dreams to New York
A thousand feet in the air she found love
He said “You should never feel alone. You had the light in you all along.
“Do not live life as a shadow… I know…

“You pay the price / To be yourself
When you’re not the one / The world expected

“But you and I make a universe
Where every drifting moon / Finds a spinning Earth
Everything you are, I am, too.”

In the clouds and in his arms
She let go of right and wrong
Tore away her shirt; threw away her tie
Turned her shadow into a sword

You pay the price / To be yourself
When you’re not the one / The world expected

But you and I make a universe
Where every drifting moon / Finds a spinning earth
Everything you are
Is a universe
Where every drifting moon / Finds a spinning Earth
Everything you are, we are, too.
Track Name: All The Rage
She spent 27 years in an inland town
And she dared herself to rage every time she stopped looking down
And then the ad in the paper said “Dreams come true!
“Just get downtown and see you know who…
“If you know how to rage, then we want you!”

She bought an audition dress at Main Floor in the Redlands mall
And she nearly died when the salesgirl said
“You know, that dress, it kinda makes you look…tall.”
And then she got up this morning and waited in the queue,
Then they said, “Sit here until we call for you.
“There’s dreamers in front, who queued up, too, to be…”

All the rage and out tonight.
All that rage in black and white
In the public eye and out of sight
To be all the rage.

Someone said, “Never mind her, just get yourself downtown.”
When her sister said “Give it up, baby, it’ll never work out.”
So now she’s in a folding chair against a fake fake wall
as the sun goes down outside a windowless hall,
and she can’t lose her shit ’cause her name’s been called…

She blew them away in that downtown room
And now we see her everywhere like a Sun God…

And her hometown paper gave her the whole home page
Now she gets a table where she used to dance a cage
And she’s never alone, now that she’s

All the rage. And out tonight.
All that rage in black and white
In the public eye and out of sight
She’s all the rage…
Track Name: Melody Chaos
So there you have it, we wrote our ticket out
We’re headed anywhere we want to choose

We never really planned it, just never had doubts
We were going somewhere – never gonna lose

Yeah, the stakes are high
But our vision’s clear
And neither of us is pure, but our moment’s here

It’s ok to embrace uncertainty
A quiet life we may never see
But for now this noise makes a symphony

In the middle of chaos, you’re my melody

So here I’m landing, took the red eye out
I see the causeway that leads to you

St Mary, guide me down from the clouds
Harmony, carry me through

So there you have it, we wrote our ticket out
We’re headed anywhere we want to choose

It’s ok to embrace uncertainty
A quiet life we may never see
But for now all this noise makes a symphony
...let this noise make a symphony

In the middle of chaos, you’re my melody

Track Name: Turnaround, Annie
she didn’t feel suspicious - or paranoid
she didn’t see the distance - into the void
she learned to play with all the memories - like toys
she said it made it easier to drown the noise

she worked for years - to create confusion
as she waited for life to reveal itself as an illusion
along the way she learned not to search for conclusions

as we drove the roads around my house
she wasn’t gonna stop until she broke down
all those angry hours

she said, “don’t tell me when to turn around...
“i’ll tell you when we turn around
“just keep driving to the moon
“don’t you dare turn around

6am underneath the subway tracks
she said if that train was a plane I’d jump right on its back
then she rolled her eyes and taught me how to fade to black

as we drove the roads around my house
she wasn’t gonna stop until she broke down
all those angry hours

she said, “don’t tell me when to turn around...
“i’ll tell you when we turn around
“just keep driving to the moon
“don’t you dare turn around
Track Name: Roadside Justice
In front of the firing line
You’ll look up at the blue sky
And we’ll trace the route to each other’s eyes

In the wake that’s left behind
As the sounds of the gun shots die
You’ll leave this world with your head held high

Don’t look for justice at the side of the road
Don’t trust the crowd
We are on our own

You will live in the memory of birds
The wind will carry your words
Your dreams will serve as my alibi

Truth is a lonely place
Lonely as a human race

Don’t look for justice at the side of the road
Don’t trust the crowd
We are on our own

In the wake that’s left behind
As the sounds of the war drums die
We leave this world with our heads held high
Track Name: Particle Theory
you & i let's float away
lighter than air
lighter than light

you can't break down what you can't divide
you can't destroy what you can't collide
let's float away

you & i let's drift away
we are the clouds
that make a perfect sky

you can't break down what you can't divide
you can't destroy what you can't collide
let's float away
