about

Putting Up Drunken Walls is an ongoing album that explores my deepest regrets and my greatest hopes for the future. It is an eclectic collection of upbeat and melancholy electronic tunes with a bit more rock flair than I used in Beyond Imagination.

Track Name: Merrigoround
If life is just a thrill ride
Then why aren't you screaming
I have been on sidewalks with more twists than that
The one ride that draws me in
Has got to be the boat that we're in
Where we just keep going round and round again

This is our merrigoround
We are stuck on a whirligig
No matter how many times we go round
I still love you

Well I'm deaf but I hear you sing
And I'm blind in the morning
But I'll see the sun each time I see your face
When I hate myself to death
It's loving you that restores my breath
And I'll rise again to fall down at your side

This is our merrigoround
We are stuck on a whirligig
No matter how many times we go round
I still love you

And there's one thing that I know
And that's you are everything
And it's so hard to try to explain
Why I'm revolving
Revolving

The one ride that draws me in
Has got to be the boat that we're in
Where we just keep going round and round again

This is our merrigoround
We are stuck on a whirligig
No matter how many times we go round
I still love you
I still love you
I still love you
Track Name: Seventeen
Looking at a picture
You're so beautiful
I can remember it like it was yesterday
And love was fresh and new
And we were the world

Minute hand slow your crawl
'Cross the face of time
And let us cherish her
And hold her
And never let her go~

Where did the romance go
I traded it in for a friend who
Knows what I mean to say
Before it's said

You're not the girl I knew
You're somebody from somewhere greater
Hold me and I'll hold you too

'Cause I grew wings for you
Flew beyond what I thought I knew
When I went to confess my flight
I found you took off too
So though time may be cruel
I will always return to you
And when I come back, you'll be
Seventeen

Passion
Is a fire that burns
But has no fuel and so dies
Where will we be then
Why we will be right here
In love all the same

More than your hair
More than eyes that catch the stars
Love perseveres when passion dies
For it only craves your smile

Who says that God is dead
For how can he be when I yet can
Look in your eyes and see
Infinity

I'll give you everything
If I have to die simply trying
Hold me and I'll hold you too

'Cause I grew wings for you
Flew beyond what I thought I knew
When I went to confess my flight
I found you took off too
So though time may be cruel
I will always return to you
And when I come back, you'll be
Seventeen

I think I found the way
But how can I go without you to
Find it for me when I cannot see

You are my better half
Without you I think I'd be drowning
Hold me and I'll hold you too

'Cause I grew wings for you
Flew beyond what I thought I knew
When I went to confess my flight
I found you took off too
So though time may be cruel
I will always return to you
And when I come back, you'll be
Seventeen

We're a stone, me and you
Time turns us into something new
And to grow old with you
I can't think what I'd rather do
So though time may be cruel
I will always return to you
And when I come back, you'll be
Seventeen
Track Name: Campfire
This is my nightmare
I'm gazing to the heavens
I turn to you and to my dismay
You are gone

Under the night sky I
See with a clarity
I haven't had since we
Started this journey
I've been so lost
All that I want is friendship
Yet I want so much more
Under the watch of
These shimmering guardians
I've gotten down on my knees

Nightly I watch for signs and
I stoke the fire
Trying to kindle a flame

Where are you
The campsite is made
The night stretches out before us
I've got a song for you
The fire is blazing
And I'll never let it die down
Never again

Wandering the night woods I
See how I cannot see
Stumbling blindly
Hands that are empty
I am so lost
Somewhere a cabin beckons
Yet I cannot approach
It's getting darker
And I cannot find you
It's getting harder to see

Make my way back to camp and
I stoke the fire
Try to remember my name

Where are you
The campsite is made
The night stretches out before us
I've got a song for you
The fire is blazing
And I'll never let it die down
Never again

Where did I lose you
(Talk to me)
Did I desert you
Leave you behind
These stars were ours once
(I didn't mean to shoot them down)
Help me find them

Where are you
The campsite is made
The night stretches out before us
I've got a song for you
The fire is blazing
And I'll never let it die down
Never again
Track Name: Not A Sad Song
Every day he's lookin' for
A chance to find his metaphor
The truth behind the black and white
And dreary shades of grey
Lookin' in your eyes he sees
Contempt and pity when he needs
A hint of hope a glint of light
To carry him away

And yet his dreams are sweeter than you know
And filled with hands that hold
And voices softly crooning words that every heart should hear
His heart breaks a little every day
He works so hard to mend the cracks away
And be the guy who always smiles
And hides in his eyes

It's not a sad song yet
He still has time to forget
And make his life something new
Something good
Before he says goodbye
And writes the end

And when the sadness fades day breaks
He starts a new life with the shakes
And looking back he contemplates
The man he used to be
He wants to change but knows the truth
His life is like a rotten tooth
It fills your mouth with sour taste
And pain 'til you rip it free

And yet his dreams are sweeter than you know
And filled with hands that hold
And voices softly crooning words that every heart should hear
Lying down he prays for sudden death
He cannot help but wish for final breath
And courage to choose to clean his mess
Or let it all go

It's not a sad song yet
He still has time to forget
And make his life something new
Something good
Before he says goodbye

And writes the end
Of a life lived with you
Writes the end
Of a song meant for two
And sings that song for you
And asks that you would take his hand
Before he says
Goodbye
