about

Over the course of a week in early February of 2018, thirty songwriters huddled up in the warm confines of The Holiday Music Motel in Sturgeon Bay, WI to take inspiration from local visual artists in a one-of-a-kind pairing of image and song. The participants played a nightly game of spin-the-bottle to randomly select groups of 3 writers and one visual work to provide the muse for a new collaboratively written song. Artwork was displayed at a week-long pop-up exhibit at Door County Makers Space; songs were performed on Feb 9th and 10th at the historic Third Avenue Playhouse. Herein lies the recordings of those songs created during that frosty magical time from a motel snugly tucked midway up the thumb of Wisconsin’s Door County island peninsula.

Special thanks to: The Holiday Music Motel, Steel Bridge Radio, Third Avenue Playhouse, Making Sausage Music, Teresa Young, Teflon, Door County Screen and Sign, Tony Menzer, Sturgeon Bay Music Exchange, Ty Helbach Photography, Door County Makers Space, Chris Opper and Door County Short Film Fest, Kelly Avenson Photography, Painted Recordings, Mark Theide, Jon Calhoun of Econo Foods and all of the wonderful people who helped to feed the artists, take tickets, hang posters, shared photographs, and on and on and on… the outpouring of support we receive is essential to making it happen. <3 <3 <3

Track Name: The Sea And The Sky
Come right down to the water
Float on down with the breeze
Feathering your way again
To the seam of the sky and the sea

Come on up to the surface
Make your way to the waves, oh please
To feel the light of day my friend
At the seam of the sky and the sea
At the seam of the sky

I see blues below me and above
Even a bird and a fish can fall in love…
…but then what?

When you’re drifting together,
Twain in the space between,
It’s then you’ll know you’ve found your home
At the seam of the sky and the sea
At the seam of the sky and the sea

Ooooh
…and the sea
Track Name: You Make Me Happy
Lipstick crush and a moonlit path
Where’d you ever learn
To look at me like that
As if I was the only one for you

Shameless hands, sleepless nights
Left me blind
To your wandering eyes
I wanted it so badly to be true

There’s no one in the world
Who makes me feel like you do

You, you make me happy
You make me happy to be
Happy to be
Alone

You, you make me happy
You make me happy to be
Happy to be
Alone

Mama always told me to believe them when they show their colors
Now I’m seeing red and waving my white flag at your black heart

You paint a pretty picture
Sure looks fun
Cotton candy clouds and a lemon sun
You had my back, now I’m all burn

Sayonara sweetheart
I’m leaving the
Chasing you to Betty and Veronica
Played your game, and now I’ve learned

There’s no one in the world
Who makes me feel like you do

You, you make me happy
You make me happy to be
Happy to be
Alone

You, you make me happy
You make me happy to be
Happy to be
Alone

You, you make me happy
You make me happy to be
Happy to be
Alone

You, you make me happy
You make me happy to be
Happy to be
Alone
Track Name: Wish I Thought Of That First
When I look at all the things I done,
In the stark light of the sun
And I think about the hurt I caused,
And the friendships lost and won,
I gaze into the mirror,
And each memory gets clearer
Every promise every threat
I remember with regret,
Wish I thought of that first.
Wish I thought of that first
Cos when the pain gets at its worst
And I feel like I been cursed
I wish I thought of that first.

I walk alone with my choices known
And the shadows that they cast.
Tell myself I should turn around,
But I can’t outrun my past.
Never did what mama said
Took my own road here, instead,
Every good thing I just tossed,
But it came at such a cost –
Wish I thought of that first
I wish I thought of that first,
Every heartache set to verse
Every missed take well rehearsed,
Wish I thought of that first.

With peace, at the end,
There’s no way to pretend,
That a lover, god or friend
Could show me out.
Track Name: The Golden Age Of Tinsel Town
Sixty years on you still stand strong
The winds couldn’t blow you down
I still see your face in town

Ya held your head up, you’re not ashamed of
The rumors flyin’ ‘round
No, your reputation’s sound

Now you’re ready for your closeup
And your dealers standing by
Now your role is up for offer
You realize
You realize

You see L.A.
I see Hollywood, baby
Hollywood, baby
It’s Hollywood
The golden age of Tinseltown

You stay away from
The place you came from
Your heart did not belong
And you knew it all along

You found your calling
When stars were falling
And they landed in your lap
Yeah the critics got your back

In your come to Jesus moment
With your demons standing by
When all souls up for offer
I realize
I realize

You see L.A.
I see Hollywood, baby
It’s Hollywood, baby
It’s Hollywood
The golden age of Tinseltown

Your fish is out of water
And the bird has left the cage
You’re too old to play the martyr, anyway
Anyway

You see L.A.
I see Hollywood, baby
It’s Hollywood, baby
It’s Hollywood
The golden age of Tinseltown
Golden age of Tinseltown
Golden age of Tinseltown
Track Name: Opposites Attract
You and I
Are like salt and pepper
So much better
When we shake things up together

You and me
The honey in my tea, so bittersweet
Put us together for the perfect treat

Oh, magnetic chemistry
Holds together you and me
Makes up for what we separately lack
It’s a matter of fact
Opposites attract
Opposites attract

Here and there, this and that
Far and near, forth and back
No matter the minutes or the miles
I’d travel any distance just to see your smile

Oh, magnetic chemistry
Holds together you and me
Makes up for what we separately lack
It’s a matter of fact
Opposites attract
Opposites attract

It’s a matter of fact
Opposites attract
Opposites attract
Track Name: Alice's Garden
When the shadows overtake you, darlin’
Sunlight brings you to your knees
We can show you how to let your heart in
Through the pinhole follow me

Friend, you got the fire in you
Let the sleeping dragons lie
Leave the burdens of your world behind you
Kiss the knife and stone goodbye

You’ve got questions
That’s okay
It’s okay
This is the day

Slide into Alice’s open arms
You know the garden’s growing
Here you belong, yes you are a dream
And the garden’s growing

The light is leading you into the music
Everybody knows the tune
Got a spirit baby, don’t ya lose it
Slide into it, sing it true

Not the first one
Or the last one, babe
It’s okay
This is the day

Slide into Alice’s open arms
You know the garden’s growing
Here you belong, yes you are a dream
And the garden’s growing

Sweet Alice, forever roams the garden
If you’re locked without a key
She will show you how to let your heart in
Through the pinhole follow me
Follow me

Slide into Alice’s open arms
You know the garden’s growing
Oh, oh, oh
Track Name: Super
Comic books and movie screens and superheroes always save the world
But I, I’m just a boy who’s tryin’ to be a hero for a girl

Superman looks really great upon a page but I need somethin’ real
You don’t need to read my mind to realize the way that I feel

Babe, I know I can’t fly or travel through time
But know that I try, babe, to see you
But if I was super and I could save anything
It’d be you

I don’t have laser beams or super speeds, those aren’t my specialties
I just want someone to remember me

Babe, I know I can’t fly or travel through time
But know that I try, babe, to see you
But if I was super and I could save anything
It’d be you
It’d be you
Track Name: Animal
I can’t make up my mind
Are you tender and kind
Sometimes I don’t know

Show up roses in hand
Cut me down I can’t stand
You got me feelin’ so low

Here I go again
Staring at the phone
While the world burns down
I should know it all by now

I can take it like a champ but you’re an animal
I know every kind of dance except the push ‘n pull
Now I don’t wanna dance at all
Now I don’t wanna dance

Love is s’posed to feel good
I don’t think that I should
Feel so sick in my head

Got me tattered in two
Feelin’ all black ‘n blue
I think our sweet love is dead

Here I go again
Staring at the phone
While the world burns down
I should know it all by now

I can take it like a champ but you’re an animal
I know every kind of dance except the push ‘n pull
Now I don’t wanna dance at all
Now I don’t wanna dance
Now I don’t wanna dance
Now I don’t wanna dance
Track Name: Under Lock And Key
I don’t wanna be
Under lock and key
Wontcha dance with me under the stars
We are free to roam
When love is our home
Can’t live under lock and key

Moments and memories
Haunting these halls
Each day it gets harder to breathe
Faces and photographs
Cling to the walls
And I don’t even recognize me

All of the colors have faded to greys
And I’m just trying to find my way

I don’t wanna be
Under lock and key
Wontcha dance with me under the stars
We are free to roam
When love is our home
Can’t live under lock and key

Pull back the curtains
Shed light on these dreams
Believe in a world you can’t see
Walk through the doorway
Into the wide open
The future uncertain and free

The height of the fall is revealed by the step
That you take when you walk out that door

I don’t wanna be
Under lock and key
Wontcha dance with me under the stars
We are free to roam
When love is our home
Can’t live under lock and key

I don’t wanna be
Under lock and key
Wontcha dance with me under the stars
We are free to roam
When love is our home
Can’t live under lock and key

We are free to roam
When love is our home
Can’t live under lock and key
Track Name: Nothin' Turns My Lock Like Your Key
They say lovin’ is a precious thing
Doesn’t get goin’ ‘til wedding bells ring

But I don’t abide by the rules, never have
I like good lovin’ that don’t make me bad

So if you want to stay with me
I’ll be good to you but I got to be free

Don’t worry baby, it’s plain to see
That nothing turns my lock like your key

Not a big believer in monogamy
I go out with whoever I please

And if I’m drawn to his geometry
And his angles are right, well that’s proof enough for me

That we could have a little fun together
Twenty minutes tops, I ain’t talking ‘bout forever

Just know, even if it takes many men to satisfy my needs
Nothing turns my lock like your key

I don’t discriminate between Johnny and Sue
He, she, they, and you can come too

Yes, it takes many many many many men and women to satisfy my needs
But nothing turns my lock like your keys
I’m comin’ home to you, baby
Nothing turns my lock like your key
That’s right, hold on
Nothing turns my lock like your key
Track Name: Unlocked
I stopped trying to open up locked doors
What’s behind them
Is never what I’m searching for

It’s been a treasure hunt
With bad luck and I’ve lost the map
Well it blew away on a cloudy day
‘Til you brought it back

You’ve got a way that makes me believe
This door’s open wide
My why a feelin’, baby I’m reelin’
We got nothing to hide

Fools had me weeping
Days I spent sleeping, trapped inside
‘Til you showed up, and showed me love
The sweetest kind

It’s easy to fall, knocked down and crawling
Back for more
Now the chain’s unlocked, my pain has stopped
I can finally soar

You’ve got a way that makes me believe
This door’s open wide
My why a feelin’, baby I’m reelin’
We got nothing to hide

Oohs

It’s been a treasure hunt
With bad luck and I’ve lost the map
It blew away on a cloudy day
‘Til you brought it back
It blew away on a cloudy day
‘Til you brought it back
Track Name: Live Together
Brother, you’re hurting
Sister, take my hand
Mother, hold steady
Father knows the way to the promised land
Father knows the way to the promised land
Father knows the way to the promised land

Oh, every journey starts like this
First the idea, then the kiss

Come to the river
Lay down your pride
We got to work together
If we want to get to the other side
If we want to get to the other side
If we want to get to the other side

Oh, every journey starts like this
First the idea, then the kiss

We got to live in the world together
We got to live in the world together
We got to live in the world together
We got to live in the world together

Every journey starts like this
First the idea, then the kiss

We got to live in the world together
We got to live in the world together
We got to live in the world together
We got to live in the world together
We got to live in the world together
We got to live in the world together
Track Name: Prince of Turtle Island
See the bluest water.
Velvet moon and sky.
Land, he is your father.
Now I call you mine.

Wander everywhere the wind blows.
Bed down. Dreaming where the fern grows.
One tear falls into the earth.
Moonlight gazing on your birth.

Sweet and brave one.
Light is in your eyes.
Prince of Turtle Island.
Let your arrow fly.

Swim the sacred river.
Cross the other side.
Meet a tribal princess.
She will be your bride.

Kiss her down beside the water.
Give her everything you own.
Silver. A bride piece for her father.
Take her by the hand and bring her home.

Sweet and brave one.
Light is in your eyes.
Prince of Turtle Island.
Let your arrow fly.
Let your arrow fly.

Then one Autumn morning.
The west wind was blowing wild.
He looked upon his darling.
In her arms, a warrior child.

Take him far across the island.
Teach him everything you know.
Raise him with all your strength and wisdom.
You will see our nation grow.

Sweet and brave one.
Light is in your eyes.
Prince of Turtle Island.
Let your arrow fly.
Track Name: Sweet Baby Doll
I got ya yellow roses
Now we’re steady as she goes (uh huh)

It’s a topsy turvy feeling
With my sneakers on the ceiling (oh yeah)

Polyester freak out
Party’s in the street nowwwww

Ask me to the dance but
But I split my Sunday pants, man

Oh I gotta know
Yeah I gotta know
Am I your baby doll?
Sweet (!) baby doll.

I knew it when I seen ya
That I really really need ya (uh huh)

But you run me ragged
Got me sweating out my jacket. (oh yeah)

Prestidigitation
Body modulation

Put the puppet down now
Let the freaky clown out

Cuz I gotta know
Yeah I gotta know
Am I your baby doll?
Sweet (!) baby doll

I just gotta know
Am I your baby doll
Sweet baby doll.

All I wanna do
Is keep tripping out with you

It’s a strange, strange world

Am I your baby doll?

SWEET BABY DOLL!
Track Name: Darlene
After sifting through the wreckage
I gaze on this shameful scene
I began to get the message
It’s all on account a Dahlene

Dahlene do you feel remorse
Dahlene we got all off course
Gotta million dollar wedding and a dollar divorce
Gotta million dollar wedding and a dollar divorce Dahlene

I remember when we met up
And the day I fell under that spell
Took me seven years to wake up
And walk from a match made in hell

Dahlene do you feel remorse
Dahlene we got all off course
Gotta million dollar wedding and a dollar divorce
Gotta million dollar wedding and a dollar divorce Dahlene

Oh, the deacon tried to warn us
Not to rush in too fast
You’re far too young for marriage
And the love that you feel won’t last

Dahlene do you feel remorse
Dahlene we got all off course
Gotta million dollar wedding and a dollar divorce
Gotta million dollar wedding and a dollar divorce Dahlene

Oh the love could not be hotter
Than a night with a Cajun queen
Well I asked her once for water
And she poured me a glass of kerosene

Dahlene do you feel remorse
Dahlene we got all off course
Gotta million dollar wedding and a dollar divorce
Gotta million dollar wedding and a dollar divorce
Gotta million dollar wedding and a dollar divorce
Gotta million dollar wedding and a dollar divorce Dahlene, Dahlene, Dahlene, Dahlene
Track Name: Cattail Moon
When we say goodbye
Look up at the sky
When we’re apart
I’m there in the stars

Don’t worry my sweet darlin’
I’ll be home in the morning
My heart is with you
Under the cattail moon

When you feel alone
Be warmed by the glow
Of all the lights placed
Way up there in space

Cheer up my sweet darlin’
Don’t you stop smilin’
My heart is with you
Under the cattail moon

If you wake in the dark
And you can’t find the stars
Hear my voice in the tides
I’m always by your side

Don’t worry my sweet darlin’
I’ll be home in the morning
My heart is with you
My heart is with you
Under the cattail moon
Track Name: Hide N Seek/Throw U Away
If we could speak heart to heart
Would you tell me your secrets
See you’re falling deep again
It’s time to find your weakness

Glancing side to side
A love you keep inside

Don’t mind me
On your street
You can’t hide
The only one I seek

Reaping what you sow, you know
The cards aren’t in your favor
Love’s a risky game to play
You’ll both regret this later

A solitary night
I watch you dim the lights

Don’t mind me
On your street
You can’t hide
The only one I seek

Ooooh

The only one I seek

Do you think that heart is yours
Had my eye on it first
Do you think that heart is yours
Had my eye on it first

Don’t mind me
On your street
You can’t hide

Why would anyone throw you away
A bird and a diamond – a small piece of clay
A watch that is broken and a rose that won’t stay
Why would anyone throw you away
Why would anyone throw you away

A blue piece of glass that’s straight from my heart
A ring that is missing – a clock that don’t start
A part of my address it’s from my old street
A piece of the pipe, my lips used to meet

I tried to stay in line, falling apart all the time
And then I found you
And then I found you
And then I found you
And now I have you

I’m broken too, shattered in bits
A dice that is lost in a gambling fit
I lost half my beer cus the bottle broke in two
My pieces don’t fit but I’m perfect for you
My pieces don’t fit but I’m perfect for you

I tried to stay in line, falling apart all the time
And then I found you
And then I found you (why would anyone throw you away)
And then I found you
And then I found you (why would anyone throw you away)
And then I found you
And then I found you (why would anyone throw you away)
And then I found you
And now I have you
Track Name: Rain Down
Ah ooh
Ah ooh
Been a bit since we built that fire and you split
And left me in the heat like that
I should mention I really learned my lesson
Now I’m never goin’ back, I’m never goin’ back
It’s a cold world but I got heat from my feet runnin’ up to my crown
Ain’t nothin’ better than a girl under pressure reborn as a stormcloud

Rain down
The water’s risin’
Rain down
Here comes the lightning
Rain down
The thunder will rattle your walls and you’ll think of me
You’ll think of me
You’ll think of me
Every time the rain falls
Every time the rain falls

Ah ooh
Ah ooh

When the sky comes alive better keep a weather eye
Close the windows when the cool wind blows
Batten down the hatches, wait until it passes
God help you if it ever, help you if it ever snows
I’m a force, baby, you can feel me from miles around
Things are getting hectic
Air is electric
And it’s runnin’ all the way to the ground

Rain down
The water’s risin’
Rain down
Here comes the lightning
Rain down
The thunder will rattle your walls and you’ll think of me
You’ll think of me
You’ll think of me
Every time the rain falls

Think of me and the way that you left
A big hole in the center of my chest
Turns out time can change the pain
Pain turns to tears
And tears turn to rain

Rain down
The water’s risin’
Rain down
Here comes the lightning
Rain down
The thunder will rattle your walls and you’ll think of me
You’ll think of me
You’ll think of me
Every time the rain

Rain down
The water’s risin’
Rain down
Here comes the lightning
Rain down
The thunder will rattle your walls and you’ll think of me
You’ll think of me
You’ll think of me
Every time the rain falls
Track Name: Stars
Stars explode in the night
Red dust left behind
In a fiery sky
There are stars
There are stars

Painting the walls
Snow is starting to fall
Even in desolate nights
There are stars
There are stars

Colors take their time
When everything is white

Snow, I’m buried in snow
I know there’s a glow
Somewhere down below
There’s a day, I long for the day
I wait for the rain to wash me away
Innnnnnnto stars, innnnnnnto stars

Spring and summer combine
To leave winter behind
Fireflies dance through the trees
Like stars
They are stars

Leaves changing their hue
The way autumn will do
Crimson and golden collide
Like stars
They are stars

Seasons come and go
Winter moves so slow

Snow, I’m buried in snow
I know there’s a glow
Somewhere down below
There’s a day, I long for the day
I wait for the rain to wash me away
Innnnnnnto stars, innnnnnnto stars
Innnnnnnto stars, innnnnnnto stars
Track Name: My Aveline
My Aveline
With wings of gold
A feathered shield
And spirit old

My Aveline
In dreams we meet
I wait for you
Will you wait for me

Dear Aveline
Who would you grow to be
In this fractured earth these raging seas

Dear Aveline
You’ve always been my girl
I carried you
Can you carry me

Dear Aveline
Oh little one
My earthbound wings long to bring you home

Dear Aveline
A love so true
Do you wait for me
Like I wait for you
Track Name: Move Me
I wasn’t looking for you
Just sitting on the sidewalk café
Sun is shining, it’s a beautiful day
I wasn’t waiting for my dreams to come true.
I wasn’t looking for you
But you showed up in that Clementine suit
Outta place and lookin’ kinda cute
Oooo what’s a girl to do
I wasn’t looking for you.

Then all I could see, was you smilin’ at me

Suddenly, I lost control of the strings
I’m doing crazy things
It’s getting harder to breathe
Somethin’s running right through me
Don’t know what happened to me

I like the way that you move me
You move in ways I don’t understand
You slay me with the wave of your hand
This wasn’t something I could have planned
I like the way that you move me

People can stare, but I don’t care

Suddenly, I lost control of the strings
I’m doing crazy things
It’s getting harder to breathe
Somethin’s running right through me
Don’t know what happened to me

I like the way that you move me, move me
‘Lectricity running through me, through me
If you’ve got a problem, sue me, sue me
You know I like the way

Suddenly, I lost control of the strings
I’m doing crazy things
It’s getting harder to breathe
‘Lectricity runnin’ through me
Don’t know what happened to me
Suddenly, I lost control of the strings
I’m doing crazy things
It’s getting harder to breathe
‘Lectricity runnin’ through me
Don’t know what happened to me
I like the way that you move me
Track Name: Stars On My Money
I’m a sailor
I know where I am in the middle of the sea
With just my compass and my map and my stars and me,
But when I get on land I get lost easily
That’s why I came up with a plan to put

Stars on my money
Stars on my money
Without stars on my money I would wander for hours.
That’s why all my money’s got stars.

I’m on leave
Without the advantage of seeing the stars
I’m navigationally challenged and it’s challenging enough just
Regaining my balance.
I’m not standing too solidly. My insurance policy
Is the currency I keep in my wallet. See I got

Stars on my money
Stars on my money
Without stars on my money I would wander for hours.
That’s why all my money’s got stars.

On my money
Stars
On my money

My ship pulls up to the dock. I just got
Paid. I’m punchin’ the clock. It’s time to reach for the
Stars so hot they’re burnin’ holes in my pocket.
It’s time to have some fun and I can find my way with

Stars
On my money
Stars
On my money

Here we go, break it down

Stars on my money
Stars on my money
Without stars on my money I would wander for hours.
That’s why all my money’s got stars.
That’s why all my money’s got stars.
Track Name: Chasing The Flame
I know you’re no good for me
I’m a moth an’ I’m drawn to your flickering star light
Trading my sanity to be with you
Red hot, to the touch, outta sight

Ooo ooo
Chasing the flames
Chasing the feeling again
Ooo oooo
Tasting the danger
Taking my breath away
It’s exciting, so keep lighting
Me on fire

Mercury’s rising and your gravity is pullin’ me in
Sizzle as we sweat, as we swoon, as we sway
Into the galaxy as we fly, fly, fly
Interstellar constellation, getting lost in the sensation

Ooo ooo
Chasing the flames
Chasing the feeling again
Ooo oooo
Tasting the danger
Taking my breath away
It’s exciting, so keep lighting
Me on fire

Can’t cool down
I’ll never hit the ground
Can’t cool down
I’ll never hit the ground
Can’t cool down
I’ll never hit the ground
Can’t cool down
I’ll never hit the ground
Can’t cool down
I’ll never hit the ground
Can’t cool down
I’ll never hit the ground

Ooo ooo oo
Chasing the flames
Chasing the feeling again
Ooo ooo oo
Tasting the danger
Taking my breath away
It’s exciting, so keep lighting
Me on fire
It’s exciting, so keep lighting
Me on fire
On fire
On fire
Track Name: Little Grey Dress
I’m heavy as a stone, you were light as a feather
You once tried to be free, and I let ya

I was so stone-cold that you tried to fly southward
‘Til that got old and you just got bored
And now you’re coming back, coming back, coming back to me

I tried to keep you tame, and you just kept trying to be wild
You’re a bird and I’m a cage, and my bars were made to keep you meek and mild

Like a little grey dress that you just had to wear
Now I’m your burden, your burden to bear
And now you’re coming back, coming back, coming back to me
Maybe you’ll really break free
Maybe you’ll really break free

Now you’re gone, now you’re gone, now you’re gone, yeah, we all know the tune
Now you’re gone, now you’re gone, now you’re gone, yeah, though, you’ll be back soon

Though, the little grey dress that you once wore
It’s waiting ‘cross the floor longer than all those times for
You to come back, come back, come back to me
Come back, come back, come back to me
Maybe you really broke free
Maybe you really broke free
Maybe you really broke free
Track Name: Slowdown
Welcome to the afterlife
I’ll be your guide to the other side
It’s gonna be alright
But I’m not taking questions ‘til after the lesson

There’s a lot to cover, you’ll soon discover that
Everything you thought about this day was merely fiction

First things first, don’t be scared
You might see some familiar faces when you get over there
Can’t go back to mortality, this your new reality

Slow down, slow down, slow down, slow down
Take it easy, let your mind and body leave you
Slow down, slow down, and rest your soul

So you hated your job, that’s okay
It’s no work and all play, cuz out here
Every day is a holiday

Oh your headaches are gone?
That sounds right
No disaster, no disease, no worries
Gonna keep you up at night

Relax, kick back, enjoy eternity

Slow down, slow down, slow down, slow down
Take it easy, let your mind and body leave you
Slow down, slow down, and rest your soul

Take my hand, baby, nothing to fear
No heaven or hell waiting for you here
No black or white, no right or wrong
It’s a brand new chapter, not your epilogue

Slow down, slow down, slow down
Take it easy, let your mind and body leave you
Slow down, slow down, and rest your soul

Slow down, slow down, slow down
Take it easy, let your mind and body leave you
Slow down, slow down, and rest your soul
Slow down, slow down, and rest your soul
Track Name: Ecotone
Settled in the dust
Like metal turned to rust
Still forever still
Where the valley meets the hill
Coming like a cloud, start of something loud

Look beyond
Cross the line
I won’t stay
Frozen in time

I’ll be standing tall
When forces come to call
Seasons come to pass
This will be my last
Coming like a cloud, start of something loud

Look beyond
Cross the line
I won’t stay
Frozen in time

Look beyond
Cross the line
I won’t stay
Frozen in time
Track Name: Spend It
We’ve been addicted
Shake off the affliction
Put your hips in
Let the music take the reins
It’s electric but this commonplace has driven us in separate ways
This current pulling underneath
Blinded by this currency

Spend it
‘Cause oooh there ain’t no savin’
Swayin’ a new mindset we are pavin’
Animation over lust
The only love you can trust

Aided by the constellations
New age of interpretation
Led when the stars create the rhythm
Unplug from the system

Spend it
‘Cause oooh there ain’t no savin’
Swayin’ a new mindset we are pavin’
Animation over lust
The only love you can trust

Spend it
‘Cause oooh there ain’t no savin’
Swayin’ a new mindset we are pavin’
Animation over lust
The only love you can trust

Spend it
‘Cause oooh there ain’t no savin’
Swayin’ a new mindset we are pavin’
Animation over lust
The only love you can trust
Track Name: We Can Pretend
Once we met inside the store
I didn’t know what I was in for
I hope it turns out, to be something more

Under a spell that went into my mind
I had to look, I had to find
Gotta feeling, that I can’t describe

Much more than a doll in my hand
This guy, needs a friend
Until then, we can pretend

Can I walk with you
Bring you flowers once again
Can I talk with you
Dance with you
Romance until the end –
Until then – we can pretend
We can pretend, we can pretend, we can pretend

Don’t wanna be alone in this world
There’s nothing better than a boy and a girl
I’ll be your diamond, if you’ll be my pearl

You make me kick cus I’m under your spell
You make me jump right out of my shell
The love we have is alive and well

Can I walk with you
Bring you flowers once again
Can I talk with you
Dance with you
Romance and holding hands –
Until then – we can pretend
We can pretend, we can pretend, we can pretend
We can pretend, we can pretend, we can pretend
We can pretend, we can pretend, we can pretend
We can pretend, we can pretend, we can pretend
We can pretend, we can pretend, we can pretend
We can pretend, we can pretend, we can pretend
We can pretend, we can pretend
Track Name: Mine, Yours, And The Truth
Let her sit
Give it time
She’s a butterfly in disguise

Let him fall
Crumble down
Let him learn to build up from the ground

Spinning round
Broken crown
Dripping down
More to see than just a weed
Everything has an end

Take it in
Stepping back
Mine, yours, and the truth
Mine, yours, and the truth
Mine, yours, and the truth is where we’re at

Spinning round
Broken crown
Dripping down
More to see than just a weed
Everything has an end

Oh oh oh oh ohhhh
Track Name: Firefall
Would I know
If I was falling
In or out of a dream
Would I know?

A firefall
In your eyes
Stars so deep in space

Fire will set you free
This burn within me

Fuel the heat
Of our heartbeats
Sing through space and time
Through space and time

Let yourself
Fall next to me
Your hand slips into mine

Fire will set you free
This burn within me

Fire will set you free
This burn within me
The fire will set you free
This burn within me
Track Name: Insignificant Other
They talk about true love
They say that everybody’s got a soulmate
You take what you can get
Otherwise for me I guess just don’t know yet

If everyone’s a winner
Then I’m in first place when it comes to losing streaks
Hey, babe, I’m not a quitter
Though I just don’t know how long that I can keep on playing hide and seek

Can you really have a soulmate
If you don’t believe you’ve got a soul
Can you really have an other half
If you believe that you’re already whole
Can you really love her
If you don’t know how to be her lover
I don’t know
I’m just an insignificant other

It’s me, myself, and I
Yet myself and I are always trying to leave me
And though the sun, it shines
My shadow doesn’t want to stay beneath me

Even in the mirror
My reflection is the only one who’s willing to return a smile
If opposites attract
The rules of magnetism must be in denial

Can you really have a soulmate
If you don’t believe you’ve got a soul
Can you really have an other half
If you believe that you’re already whole
Can you really love her
If you don’t know how to be her lover
I don’t know
I’m just an insignificant other
I don’t know
I’m just an insignificant other
I don’t know
I’m just an insignificant other
Track Name: I'm All Burn
How are we teachin’ young boys, that the age of womanizing is through
To honor a woman, you can’t keep makin’ her in an image that’s simply untrue
We weren’t drawn that way, like a comic book dame
We got hips and curves, but you know we got brains

I’ve been thrown through the fire for so long,
Tired of provin’
I’ve been waitin’ so long for my turn,
When doors open I learn
I’m all burn I’m all burn I’m all burn

No wonder we’re restless and bitchin’
From all the games they keep putting us through
We try to change the system over and over again
So why must a woman still make less than a man?

I’ve been thrown through the fire for so long,
Tired of provin’
I’ve been waitin’ too long for my turn,
When doors open I learn
I’m all burn I’m all burn I’m all burn

Fear is a powerful tool and little girls learn it since when they’re in school
Who stands up when they’re confused and cryin’
We’re all sick and tired of objectifyin’

I’ve been thrown through the fire for so long,
Tired of provin’
I’ve been waiting too long for my turn,
When doors open I learn
I’m all burn I’m all burn I’m all burn, burn, burn
I’m all burn I’m all burn I’m all burn
Track Name: The Masterpiece
From a distance, the beacon shining bright for all to see.
Lookin’ and reaching, calling out to me.
Is it evil, is it peaceful, which way should I go
Bound by the fear of the unknown.
Its gravitating taste…. Discipline within, directing away
The focus, attention has been paid.

Her name is Melissa
This is one of her pieces: Red Light on the Bridge
She say she’s feelin’ like a foreigner, experience the travel on her challenges
She’s on a path of understanding herself
Once she lack the confidence so her art became a platform,
Contrast of the common ground, the visual expression, the texture of the touch
The conduct of her colors bringin’ us to the subject of our personal taste.
Temptations of our eyes glance into the perils of all our times
And deep depths for all our hearts.

It’s a masterpiece
Looking into my soul
Like a red light mirror
Gonna burn a hole
To my core
I want more
But I can’t walk away with what I can’t afford
So I stole it
So I stole it
Now it’s mine.

From the absence, comin’ into play,
Somehow, someone, somewhere needs to see
There’s a masterpiece
Addicted, conflicted, led by the long to know
New ways have been shown
This gravitating taste, discipline within, directing a way
The focus, attention has been paid.

Sky is clear
The waters blue
The grass is green
The red light is calling you
The sky is clear
The waters blue
The red light is calling you
Sky is clear
The red light is calling you
The red light is calling you
The red light is calling you

It’s a masterpiece
Looking into my soul
Like a red light mirror
Gonna burn a hole
To my core
I want more
But I can’t walk away with what I can’t afford
It’s a masterpiece
Looking into my soul
Like a red light mirror
Gonna burn a hole
To my core
I want more
But I can’t walk away with what I can’t afford
It’s a masterpiece
Looking into my soul
Like a red light mirror
Gonna burn a hole
To my core
I want more
But I can’t walk away with what I can’t afford
So I stole it
Now it’s mine

Pay attention!!!
Track Name: Mike Riley (My Heart Is A Flame)
When I grow up here’s what I won’t do
I won’t be cryin’ over you
I won’t whine and I won’t fuss
I hope you get hit by a fuckin’ bus
I want you hurt but I don’t want you dead
In your hospital bed
I won’t send flowers, I won’t call
It won’t bother me at all

But my heart is a flame, flame, flame
My heart is a flame, flame, flame
My heart is a

Won’t slash your tires on your car
Won’t carve your name into my arm
Not gonna dye my hair bright blue
And I sure as hell won’t be missin’ you
And I sure as hell won’t be missin’ you

But my heart is a flame, flame, flame
My heart is a flame, flame, flame
My heart is a flame, flame, flame
My heart is a

Track Name: Aveline
Have you seen (3x)
Aveline?

Have you seen … Aveline?
I guess she left and left her dress what could it mean?
She flew into the sky defying gravity.
Aveline.

Aveline seems to be complex.
I’m a bird out of my cage.
Aveline. Aveline. Aveline.
You set me free.
Have you seen Aveline?

The higher you fire your clay
The harder your clay will get.
And today you can admire or buy her in a gallery
For artists. She’s the hardest piece of clay you’ve ever met.

She’s just a glorious torso, or so it would seem.
And you can see her at the Maker’s Space.
Third Avenue might have a new ingénue, but Aveline
Has never seen anything. She has no face.

Welcome to the playhouse where we all perform.
We have a poet with a poem and his name is Sthorm.

The focuses of Aveline’s images in fine details
Compelling to the viewer’s eyes.
Captivating. Caught in the midst of your thoughts
Of what you saw.
This is the process
The technique, the joy,
Aveline is a soul catcher.
She will blow your mind if you let her.
She’s highly trained.
She’s known for breakin’ hearts
Because she keep flyin’ away.
Her home is your home.
Sometimes Aveline finds herself in a place unknown
Translucent
That defines the illusion permitting light to pass through it.
Clearly visible. Fragile.delicate to the touch.
Hold her gently.
There’s more to Aveline besides being a piece of art.

Have you seen … Aveline?
Have you seen … Aveline?

Have you seen … Aveline?
I guess she left and left her dress what could it mean?
She flew into the sky defying gravity.

Aveline.

Voilà, c’est moi, Aveline
Je suis là dans la ciel
Avec mon robe pleines des plumes
Quand je pense que je n’ai plus corps, mais
N’importe j’aime bien cette façon d’être
J’ai laissez mon robe parce que je n’ai plus mon corps
Et maintenant je vole,
J’aime ça
Je m’appelle Aveline

There you have it, it’s me, Aveline
I am in the sky
With my dress full of feathers
When I think that I don’t have my body
But it doesn’t matter, I like this way of being
I left my dress because I don’t have a body
And now I fly,
I like that
My name is Aveline
Track Name: The Astounding Everyday
Take the escalator
Like stairs down to the sea
Where passing trains echo
Like rolling tides
Not all oceans are made of water
Not all thunder comes from the sky

You can find them wherever you are
When you’re sailing into the everyday
The astounding everyday

The barista brews coffee
With a big Buddha smile
The crossing guard stops cars
Like Joan of Arc
Not all teachers have advanced degrees
Not all heroes live in the stars

You can find them wherever you are
When you’re sailing into the everyday
The astounding everyday
Sailing into the everyday
The astounding everyday

All the things I never saw before
I don’t want to miss them anymore

The evening traffic
Runs like a river
The moon rises
Like an old friend
Not all wonders leave you wondering
Not all endings mean the end
Track Name: Star Money
They told me not to park my car alone
Callin’ mama, gotta tell her baby won’t be home
I’m a grown man, she’s my shiny girl
Gonna show her every bit of this crazy world

From Cincinnati down to Rio, baby
There ain’t no time zones where we’re going

Sweet little thang in the front seat
Lookin’ so fine I got chills when our eyes meet
Ain’t it a dream to be rockin’
When the whole world is burnin’ down

Sweet little thang in the front seat
Lookin’ so fine I got chills when our eyes meet
Ain’t it a dream to be rockin’
When the whole world is burnin’ down

Track Name: Never Gonna Live In The Blue
It must be nice to lay around in the river
You make promises you never can deliver
You don’t learn to fly
No, you won’t even try

Well you better get ready cuz the cold will make you shiver

Cuz I’m about to fly south for the winter

I’ve been sympathizing with your sad predicament
And I’ve been compromising, you don’t even give a shit
Don’t break the surface
Don’t even deserve this
I give you everything and you don’t even give a little bit
…and I gotta say I’m getting really sick of it

I’m never gonna live in the water
You’re never gonna live in the blue
If we can’t be together
What am I doing with you?

I left myself with a difficult decision:
Spend the rest of my life going fishing, or
Try to find a better
Bird of a feather
So do I leave or do I just keep a-wishing

I’m never gonna live in the water
You’re never gonna live in the blue
If we can’t be together
What am I doing with you?
What am I doing with you?
What am I doing with you?

I’m never gonna live in the water
You’re never gonna live in the blue
If we can’t be together
What am I doing with you?

I’m never gonna live in the water
You’re never gonna live in the blue
If we can’t be together
What am I doing with you?
