about

In lieu of a Kickstarter-type campaign, this teaser is to raise funds for completion of Two Thirds Of Our Lives. The songs are pay-what-you-want, so if you'd like to hear ten more like them, you can help! My goal is $3000, which will fund:
- further studio time
- mixing/mastering costs
- CD pressing
- licensing photo rights for album art
- scouting live bandmates

All donors will receive a special thanks credit in the CD's liner notes.
Those who donate at least $10 will receive the digital album once it's finished, and a special thanks credit in the CD's liner notes.
Those who donate at least $20 will receive both the digital album once it's finished, the physical CD once it's pressed, and a special thanks credit in the CD's liner notes.
Anything beyond $20...hell, I'll mail you an assortment of cheeses!

Track Name: Paperweight
All the memories, all of the times, and
All the pictures we laughed and smiled in
Well, it seems they were all just a lie
Don't spray another poisoned word at me

Lookin' back, it was not surprisin'
Even if I had not surmised it
Nevertheless, I'm gonna survive
You've played your final toyin' game with me

You know that shot of our hot sunrise in Japan?
I burned the photo
But the frame will make a damn fine paperweight

I'm gonna trash the thoughts and break away
Peel the scab and wash the stain away
Go dancin' all the pain away
I'm gonna dance it all away

I hope you find some guy who can stand ya
And that you purchase a nice new camera
And when he sees through your decorative plan
He'll tear that thing apart, and watch you fade

They'll ostracize and brand ya
No hook will ever care to land ya
And I'll be jitterbuggin', drink in hand
'Cos buried snapshots are your only trace

You know that picture of us dining in Scotland?
I hurled the photo
But the frame will make a damn fine paperweight

You know that shot of us streaking in Amsterdam?
I kept the photo
Plus the frame will make a damn fine paperweight
Track Name: Flylashes
As I hold ubiquitous eyes
On my dominion's life
O' why should I feel lonely tonight?

I've found I haven't spotted you 'round
Does something keep you bound?
This crown I'd gladly trade for your shroud

You fly through my mind
Escaping over again and over again
A fly in your eyes
You snare me over again and over again

In this dormiveglian mist
I feel your fingertips
Our syzygy begins with your lips

My guard has been dismissed to the dark
I'm at your beck and call
I'd give all mine for your dominion

A fly in your eyes
You'll snare me over again and over again
The stars in your eyes
I'll steal them over again and over again
'Til death
Track Name: The Heist
Hey, somebody tell me how this all went wrong
Well, somebody lost their focus and tripped the alarm
(Ohh! I'm hit!)
Who called the cops? Where did they come from?
(Ohh! I'm hit!)
No time to run; it's either them or us

Hands down, they're not takin' us alive
Put your hands down
They're not takin' us alive tonight

Hey, somebody want to check if the coast is clear?
Well, I would, but sending you is a much better idea
(No! That's it!)
I call the shots! I'm in charge here!
(No! That's it!)
Then be my guests; I won't shed a tear

(Whaddaya think? Should we bail?)
(Hell yeah; let's get the f(woop!)k outta here)

Hands down, they're not takin' me alive
