I’m Alive-ish

Yes, I’m still alive in a very literal sense.   Full disclosure: I haven’t been using my brain energy very constructively. Besides spending a disturbing amount of time writing (and editing) my feedback for a Marvel Cinematic Universe podcast, I’ve done almost nothing since November. While originally thinking it was just laziness, I’m now pretty … Read more

The Rules We Left Behind

This one is just a rough sketch I wrote tonight and isn’t in contention for the next group of lyrics.   Remember when we fought for the lives that we all thought were Created equal under God Now we use his name as we justify this pain that’s Inflicted while ignoring the cost   I’m … Read more

The work Continues

I’m living in cloud cuckoo land when it comes to lyrics these days.   An update since I haven’t posted in awhile. After scrapping the seasonal release format, picking it up and ultimately scrapping it again, I’m not firmly focused on creating a grouping of 10 lyrical ideas.

No Time To React

Using images of self-destruction and tribalism, No Time To React paints  a bleak  landscape.   As a second taste of Diurnal, the following lyrics remain amongst its most blunt. With imagery such as deserted streets, storm-lit skies and glass houses, it was written in 2021. Inspired by the aftermath of Covid-19, it covers how maintaining … Read more

Cross Quarters

I’m at a bit of a crossroads with the seasonal release thing.   On one hand, I’m really proud of what’s been finished so far. Autumn is kind of insane and the two pieces I’ve finished for winter are my most personal  about going blind. As I mentioned, this whole thing would cover that year … Read more

White Rabbit

I’m not convinced this is actually good but thought I’d share the work in progress anyway.   Moving from kaleidoscopes Somewhere underground Going down the rabbit hole I’m lost inside a sound   Open eyes to mediate Filtered through the noise Soon enough this hunt is on It’s not like there’s a choice   This … Read more
