One lost pearl I'll touch it! You melt ice And touch me! Now you're done Now you're done Now it's the only one! You gloss mouth And kiss me! Take it off And kiss me! Now you're done Now you're done Now it's the only one! Use your mind and touch me!

Eat those spiders on your bed Drag those demons from your head 'Cause they don't love you anymore And they think life is but a chore You never wanted what you got You never paid for what you bought I want to scratch until it burns I can not speak until she learns Shake those lesions from your head Wake those demons in your bed 'Cause I don't love me anymore And I think life is but a chore I want to speak until I cry I want pure silence when I die You think that I'll get better stat The problem lies under your hat Help somebody Blame me, shame me Claim me, you can use the key Help somebody Drown me, down me Crown me, there's nothing left to see

Love on hold And love for sale I tried to find you Of course I failed (REPEAT) I wanted to love you Like there's no one else But I was surrounded By the ringing of bells Love on hold I can't complain My dreams are so good They're driving me insane (REPEAT) I wanted to help you But his hands were too fast And I burned dark candles And dug up the past (REPEAT) Love on hold And love so bright Everything's messy And that has to be all right (REPEAT) Everything's messy And that has to be all right Everything's messy And that has to be all right Everything's messy And that has to be all right Everything's messy And that has to be all right Everything's messy And that has to be all right Everything's messy And that has to be all right.

about

Like many people, I found myself indoors most of the time during March 2020. I started looking for something productive to do. I wanted to publish something that people could listen to for free. I began to dig through my archives for decent recordings of songs that I had not yet released. These songs were all mixed at different times. I chose the best ones and began mastering them. Then came the artwork. One marathon session of drawing generated the picture that became the album art for this release. The song "Touch It" is from early 2012. It's hugely inspired by the pioneers of punk. Even the lyrics are kind of punk I suppose. Beginning around two years after recording that song, I spent forever writing, recording, re-writing, re-recording, mixing, and eventually mastering my 2017 album, Yes Love Everything. The 2014 song "Jennifer Dear" is actually the original form of what later drastically changed into "Dream Of Everything". In order to create the latter, I literally replaced all aspects of the original recording, except for a few basic elements of the drum loop. The loop in both recordings is rhythmically the same but pretty different otherwise. "Help Somebody" is a song about trying to cope with and resolve the difficulty of mental illness. It was recorded in early 2013. The lyrics and general tone are sarcastic, pessimistic, and self-effacing. Finally, I give you a recording from Summer 2015: "Love On Hold (acoustic demo)". This track was basically a test to see if I could push my music into a slightly more beautiful direction. Slightly. I feel like the demo showcases my voice and my guitar-playing skills in a fairly honest way. Listening to this last track, I feel even more naked than the woman in the artwork I drew. Enjoy!

Thank you for your valuable advice: Mark Z. Thank you for your much-needed suggestions and encouragement: Lear Mason.

This music was recorded in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. Thank you for listening to my music! Peace and love forever!
