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

Best Of Me

Today was a very productive day for many lyrics.   Over the last little bit, I’ve been chipping away at some stuff that was previously shared here. It’s all part of a seasonal release idea, which is something that was actually ripped off from Weezer. There are a few differences that I’ll reveal once things … Read more

Dreaming Of Foxes (second draft)

Just smoothed out the rough edges of what I already had and thought I’d share.   verse   I’m dreaming of foxes Been riding in an ambulance Don’t know where I’m going There’s nothing left to see It’s only my disease   verse   I’m dreaming of foxes Been riding in an ambulance Don’t know … Read more

Dreaming Of Foxes

Another work in progress here.   It all started out with a chorus idea that had me stuck yesterday. In my head, it was more of an up tempo thing when originally written. For some reason, my mind drifted to it again during breakfast this morning and something clicked. I’ll often get random drum patterns … Read more

Black Squirrel (second draft)

I worked on Black Squirrel pretty extensively again this morning.   In the spirit of yesterday’s post, I thought I’d continue to document my work in progress. As evidenced below, I wasn’t kidding when writing that the first draft could change quite substantially. Now verses have an entirely different structure and some chorus lyrics have … Read more

Black Squirrel

Black Squirrel is an idea I’ve been developing for awhile now.   It’s still in an extremely embryonic stage (as evidenced by the lack of a second verse) but I thought I’d post it anyway. I might remove it at some point but if I don’t, it could end up looking totally different down the … Read more

Frontlines

Another new thing here that has nothing to do with the upcoming Diurnal release on September 30.   I was doing some work on the seasonal release concept this morning and just finished this. Initially in contention for autumn, it really doesn’t fit the theme I’m going for now. Still, the overall vibe and writing … Read more

Jig Is Up

I’ve been working on some random stuff here and there and this is one of those things. I actually have a full group of lyrics finished and ready to go, so I’m hoping to release them next month too. More news on that soon though. For now, here’s the current version of some lyrics I … Read more
