about

B - Sides and Demos from albums "WORD SALAD" and "The Tyranny Of Thoughts".

7 of the 13 tracks can be listened to here on bandcamp, but since I'm somewhat embarrassed of the other tracks, they are available exclusively with the download.

I've been sitting on these recordings for a while, unsure how to release them until now. I think artists should separate their egos from the work and just let the music live on as it's own creature. However, I don't want tracks I'm unsure about cluttering up my bandcamp page.

But since I'm a bad judge at what people might enjoy, I've decided to release this EP of b-sides and demos as a free download for anyone who might like it. If even one person out of a hundred gets value out of something, then I suppose it's worth it.

These songs are mostly about the weirdness of having thoughts and feeling emotions.

Track Name: Spark
You've been living with
your head in the clouds
Look who's coming down
You've been living with
your heart in the mud
it's time to dig it out

Just a Spark
and it's over
Everyone that
You love

Just a spark and then it's gone

The World is asleep
without a Song
Our hearts grow cold
Why aren't you breathing
anymore?

Promise you'll love me forever

Just a Spark
and it's over
Everyone that
You love
Just a Spark
and it's over...
Track Name: Open Sesame #2
Where did you run with my head?
Took my brain from my skeleton
put it on a silver platter
mouse-trapped, snakes and ladders
I'd say I love you but I just can't trust it
We'll see each other in Heaven

These are the levels you cannot win
like in a 80's video game
All the people talking around me
makes you feel so lonely
I'd say I love you but I just can't trust it
You know I love you
You know that I want too much
All for the birds in the bird nests burn down
I'M glad you left right now
I'd say I love you but that just won't fix it
We'll see each other in Heaven...
Track Name: Medicine
a garden of thoughts overgrown in your head
the words define us
the words confine us
in a linguistic prison cell
science holds the key
but we stay tangled
like a ratking

give me your medicine
i need your medicine

reality won't make itself clear
to the mind that's haunted by fear
in this world there's too much to see
to make sense of everything

the parrot repeats what she hears
the parrot repeats what she hears
i'm an orange trapped in it's peel
and i'm really not sure what i feel

and i'm really not sure what feel
and i'm really not sure what feel
in this world there's too much to see
and i'm really not sure what i feel

give me your medicine
i need your medicine

in the end
compassion is the finest medicine
Track Name: Not Me (demo)
blah blah blah
I think I am
(you left me in a dreamland)


me, not me, not me, not me
everything i see is temporary

i'm not me, i'm not me

when the seeds die
the seeds turn to trees
Track Name: I Think I am an Alien
It's such a mysterious
any thing would become a thing
are people pimples
growing on planet earth's face?

I feel weird in my skin
I think I am an alien

The operating system in my head is turning on
are my actions, thoughts and feelings all predetermined?

I walk among the humans
listening for their heart beats

they are as still as me

I feel weird in my skin
I think I am an alien

I think I am an alien
don't think I am a man
don't know about the plan
I don't think I'm a man

I think I am an alien.
Track Name: Be Happy
Be Happy

He drills holes in his skull
to let the demons out
locked in a room
chained to a bed
searching in earnest for an exit

Machine-gun eyes
alone in a maze
blinking at nothing
A samurai in his brain
dividing not multiplying

Love is all that you need
to be happy

Gosh golly
I wallow in my folly

Whoopsie daisy
Oh, the feeling makes me crazy

Be Happy

She turns on the TV to see
what society has in store for her
A price tag to guide every choice
it takes a lot of stuff to fill the void

We guarantee your satisfaction
so be a slave for consumerism
Clearly the most successful person
is the one with the most possessions


Love is all that you need
to be happy

Gosh golly
I wallow in my folly

Whoopsie daisy
Oh, the feeling makes me crazy

Be Happy
Be Happy
Be Happy
Be Happy
Track Name: Insect Voices
i find peace
walking through the woods
i lay to rest
all the worries of my world

a damsel fly
hovers over the water
and over the minnows
and toads

in the morning
i hear the wind moving
it sounds like it's trying to speak
i could have sworn i heard it speak

i stand in awe
of what i can't understand
a world of trees

dancing before my eyes
a damsel fly
hovers over the water
and over the minnows
and toads

in the night
i hear insect voices
it sounds like their trying to sing

yes i know
one day i will die

but right now
i am alive
