about

My third solo record, on which I sing and play guitar, with formidable help from drummers Barrett Martin (Screaming Trees, Skin Yard, Mad Season, Walking Papers) and Josh Sinder (Accused, TAD); and bassists Rob Skinner (Coffin Break), Alex Sibbald (Accused), and Pat Pedersen (Skin Yard). "This guy invented grunge and he continues to personify it. But DOES IT ROCK? Fuck yeah." - Everett True. "Best stun guitar in the biz." - Chris Barnes (Hellride Music). "...Whopper of an album. Recommended." - Jackson Ellis (Verbicide).

Track Name: Count Me Out
Ask me why I'm falling behind... Waiting and watching the days pass by.
Over the candle I open my hand... Dying to meet you but there's no time.

Tell me that you know the rules of the game... ugly inside but a fine warm smile.
Don't even know what you've done to yourself... Obvious now but you just don't see.

Wonder if I'll get away with it now... If you know the answer then leave me be.
Yeah I could end up destroying myself... Looking for something I just don't see.

Try not to laugh... it's only half... of what I think I see.
I see them smile... and all the while... I see what they don't see.
I got not time... I'm way behind... so COUNT ME OUT.
Track Name: Strangelove
Sit and wonder what century they're living for
Good and evil are black and white behind that door
Going back to our fathers' fathers' fathers' time
Don't remember that eye for eye means going blind

(Chorus) No one's asking me, but I don't like what I see
Someone wake me up please this can't be real

Men of crosses and men in suits are making plans
Boys in uniform drawing lines in desert sand
Do it right, make the world jump at their command
But I don't like where they stand

(Chorus) No one's asking me, but I don't like what I see
Someone wake me up please this can't be real

(Bridge 1) I spend my days hoping for the best
But they think they're gonna ride their bombs to Jesus' side
Think they're gonna ride those bombs to Jesus' side

Feel like going outside and screaming silently
You see it's all for them and none for you and me
Rains of fire, our default foreign policy
'Cuz we're the land of the free

(Chorus) No one's asking me, but I don't like what I see
Someone wake me up please this can't be real

(Bridge 2) I spend my nights hoping I'll wake up
'Cuz they think they're gonna ride their bombs to Jesus' side
Think they're gonna ride those bombs to Jesus' side
Track Name: Elusive
It's elusive...
Track Name: Only Way For Me
I'm watching and I'm waiting as the wheel's spinning round
Didn't matter what I tried to do, I've wasted all I've found
But you know I'd do the same again...

Got a hat like Oklahoma, but my shoes are only ten
Some people need to be reminded: We're just ordinary men
So you see I'd do the same again

It's the only way for me (4x)

So just what I'm trying to say here, is be proud of what you've done
And remember as you spend your days:
WATCH OUT WHAT YOU BECOME
So you see I'd do the same again

It's the only way for me (4x)

(Bridge:)
Run this life again
Do no better then
Run this life again
Be no different then
Track Name: Permanent Fatal Error
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Follow The Sun
Who's prone to take the lead
You're not built for any speed
No one knows what size you need

Got food upon the table
Your life's become a fable
Got jars without a label... yeah

Got lost along the way
No time for you to play
Not sure just what to say

Those people telling lies
Really comes as no surprise
Let's cut them down to size

Who knows just what is true
And not only what is new
You've got better things to do

Now over on the edge
It don't matter what you've said
Some people think you're dead

It's all become an act
Imperative of tact
The only horse you backed

(Choruses:)

It's only just an act, now over said and done
The only horse you backed, just following the sun
All over but the act, the rest is said and done
Your bag's already packed, just following the sun
Track Name: Bait
What are you waiting for
This thing's a wide-open door
There's fun that we've got in store

We're making plans for you
You won't believe when we're through
No one can do what you do

If you see it now, don't believe it now...
BELIEVE IT NOW

We'll keep you on the run
You know it used to be fun
But still you look for the sun

You bought it, take the ride
We've got more waiting outside
You'll live and feel like you've died

If you see it now, don't believe it now...
BELIEVE IT NOW
Track Name: Reach
Right, it's all right, are we all, are we all
Here? What's gone wrong? In this place, close at hand
Wait, the time's right, listen now, try to hear
Talk, don't talk much, listen well, try to hear
Say what's on your mind tonight

(Chorus 1) Time has passed by
Don't look now, don't look now
Reach - your hand shakes

Search for something, can't be found (can't be found)
Eyes glaze over, try to search, try to see
Lips are cracking, speak your mind, speak the truth
Ask, don't ask why, don't look now, don't look now
Wipe your slate clean

(Choruses 2 and 3) Time has passed by
Don't look now, don't look now
Eyes glaze over
Try to search, try to see
Thirst for something
Don't know what, don't know how
Reach - your hand shakes
Track Name: Get Out
You won't find out what's in store
Your mind won't listen to you
It's hard to say if you've got time
No better after waking

(Chorus) If I see...
A chance of not taking it slow
The future inside that I know
I'm back on the road

So turn around and face your past
I hear that sound you're making
You don't want me to make a scene
No better after waking

(Chorus) If I see...
A chance of not taking it slow
The future inside that I know
Get back on the road to my home

(Bridge) Selling my life - selling my time
Track Name: Van Allen Wrench
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Waiting
I think I'm gonna bide my time
Won't be a partner in this crime
There's no monopoly on pain
I'm not inclined to play your game
It's coming clearer to me now
I'll make it through somehow

I'm waiting, waiting for you, I wait
Still waiting, waiting for you to come around

If everything is out of reach
And there's a problem with my speech
It's like I'm grabbing at thin air
'Cause like a ghost, you're hardly there
You know exactly how it feels
Don't want to spin my wheels

I'm waiting, waiting for you, I wait
Still waiting, waiting for you to come around

Come round, get off the ground
Raise your eyes to see
No threat, you're not dead yet
Raise your eyes to see

(ALT) The world's small, and life is all
Raise your eyes to see

'Cause life is out there and you've got to be strong
Do what you've got to, who can say that it's wrong
Make it through this and you can write your own song

Save my let down
I won't come round
Confusing, not again

Waiting for you, I wait
Waiting for you, I wait
Track Name: Schwang
Say the same thing I told you before, get off my back
What's the difference I'm not keeping score... you're on the wrong track

(Chorus:) You with your answers are way out of line... I'll try to be different this time
It's hard to believe you believe what you say... hope I stay out of your way

Try my patience you're trying my soul, I'm not gonna crack
Tell the family I'm not coming home, there's things that I lack

(Chorus)

On the outside there may be a chance, it's waiting for me
Moving forward to find my way back, I know I'm not free

(Chorus)
Track Name: Flight Of The Wax Tadpole
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Swallow The Acid
Hey, the insights
I promise to tell you whatever they said that they'd say
Say, the insides
I promise to tell you whatever they tell me to say
Sitting on top 'til the bottom drops out
Watch as we come up for air
Lifting the paper we see the design
Ask me now why it seems fair

Try to find versions that say what we want
Rationalize how we feel
Steeling ourselves to ignore what we see
Telling ourselves it's not real
You are the reason I'm standing out here
Maybe you're too drunk to care
Turning the page we can see the design
Wonder if we can be spared

(Chorus) Hey, it's not going down too well
Yeah, it's not going down too well
It's not going down
It's killing me, I can tell
Hey, it's burning my insides
It's not going down too well
It's not going down too well
It's not going down
It's killing me, I can tell

Hey - I'm so tired
I keep asking questions and only I get glassy stares
I don't know the answer keep telling myself
That's no excuse for despair
Don't want you to tell me what's wrong and what's right
There's no way that that could be fair
I wish I could say I'm a better man now
Ask me to help you but I don't know how
Try to pretend you still care
Just try to pretend you still care
Track Name: Bringing Me Down
Take yourself back and down around until you lose yourself
And when the light breaks in - confuses you - you bite your tongue
But who can say just when you'll come around, the next rebound
What's outside in is just the ending now, that's just begun

Your eyes are blackened holes, your hands are cold, your skin is numb
Looks like you found a place inside your head where I can't come
The time is passing by - let it pass - pass away
Don't let me wake you, let me touch you, let me see

(Chorus) I can't believe that you're free
See things I don't want to see
And so you're bringing me down
Bringing me down

Your only life is winding down into a darkened hole
Winding it down, winding it down
And how much longer can you run and hide from sun and sky
Beneath the leaves and grass there's comfort there beneath the ground

(Chorus) Can't stand to see you this way
Say things I don't want to say
Because you're bringing me down
Bringing me down
Track Name: Crazy Jack (He's Lost It)
Over and over, I'm killing my time
Body feeling like the end of the line
Food and sleep: things of the past
Over my shoulder, they're catching up fast

No ventilation: refuses to blow
Ears are ringing like after a show
Hands are shaking like a cheapo P.A.
Got no windows where I'm gonna stay

Hearing the same song, days without end
Act like humans, I wish they'd pretend
Too many wires, I can't see the floor
And every day the assistant brings more
