    So, you just can't stop listening to Nickelback? I got it. You're an avid slave to dreamy music production and pb&j with the crusts cut off audio musings of the recording industry. Let's face it, your music collection doesn't need any kind of adjustment at all. You're just fine. Don't even bother to put any coin down on some nobody indie artist like sleeping dogs lie. There is not a nickel or a back; nothing to see here. Keep moving... Keep moving.

    You there! How about you? Are you're sick and tired of the same old corporate stamped-out hearing happy meals? Could I interest you in some authentic indie songwriter music? As a bonus, 100% of all of the money that I make from sleeping dogs lie cd / downloads / streams go to various charities. I'm a graphic designer by trade, so I make music for the pure love of it. You can go to newmexicocreative.com and read more about the music charities that I've donated to over the years. Let me tell you about my ninth cd since 1997; Mud & Sky:

    Mud & Sky (2014) was a cd that was years in the making as I was also releasing more experimental cds before I collected enough "songwritery" songs that I could put out on one album. I would say that this is my most crafted and thought through album that I've released. Mud & Sky was one of the five finalists for "Best Album" in New Mexico in 2015. It's basically a chill indie rock album with solid songwriting all the way through. If you have a little time, please take a listen to all of the songs on this album. There's lots of love, sweat and tears that went into Mud & Sky.

    FREE SHIPPING IN THE U.S.. Please email for shipping outside of the U.S., and remember, 100% of your cd and download payment goes to various charities. Thank you for your support.

Track Name: unknown
Another unknown
That’s coming down
I swear that she could
See right through me
She’s dressed up for a Sunday
But, this ain’t no Sunday

Leavin’ Day
The unknown won’t feel the same

Another angel
Standing in the hall
There’s nothing that I can do for you now
I'll take you with me everywhere I go

Leavin’ Day
The unknown won’t feel the same
Leavin’ Day
The unknown won’t feel the same

Leavin’ Day
The unknown won’t feel the same
Leavin’ Day
The unknown won’t feel the same
Track Name: mean time
Mud flies through the sky with abandon
The latest kerfuffle is anything but cordial
We have a lifetime to kick the dead horse

But, in the mean time
Can we get it together?
But, in the mean time
Can we get it together?
Together?

You were sent for a reason
So don’t smile
We have a lifetime to talk past each other

But, in the mean time
Can we get it together?
But, in the mean time
Can we get it together?
Together?

But, in the mean time
Can we get it together?
But, in the mean time
Can we get it together?
Together?

We’ve got the best that money can buy
We have a lifetime to drop dead
So, don’t fret

But, in the mean time
Can we get it together?
But, in the mean time
Can we get it together?
Together?

But, in the mean time
Can we get it together?
But, in the mean time
Can we get it together?
Together?

Track Name: coyote
I can’t seem to find what I’m after
Sparking lights disappear
I can’t seem to follow the footsteps
Coyote leading me here

Taking the candle of thought from the altar
Pulls it in close to her chest
Glows in the starlight
And burns through the night
She’s brighter than all the rest
She’s brighter than all the rest

If I run
Will it tear me to pieces?
Stick to me like a disease?
If I don’t take the chance
Will the coyotes dance around
All that I used to be?

Taking the candle of thought from the altar
Pulls it in close to her chest
Glows in the starlight
And burns through the night
She’s brighter than all the rest
She’s brighter than all the rest

Taking the candle of thought from the altar
Pulls it in close to her chest
Glows in the starlight
And burns through the night
She’s brighter than all the rest
She’s brighter than all the rest

I can’t seem to find what I’m after
Sparking lights disappear
Glows in the starlight
And burns through the night
She’s brighter than all of the rest
Track Name: wise guy
Well, it’s all about the money
And, it’s been that way forever
It’ll make some people crazy
And, you never, never, never know

When it comes
And when it goes
Where it stops
And where it flows
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Well, it’s all about the lovin’
And, it’s been that way forever
It’ll make some people crazy
And, you never, never, never know

When it comes
And when it goes
Where it stops
And where it flows
When it comes
And when it goes
Where it stops

And when it goes
Where it stops
And where it flows
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Track Name: sunday morning coffee
Sunday morning coffee
Is the best time of the week for me
To sit around in boxers while the world is still asleep
I know that some folks read the paper, boy
But, I can’t bear the news
I’d rather sleep until it’s one or two
Than miss that muddy brew of

Sunday morning coffee
Sunday morning coffee

Whole bean, ground or instant
Satisfaction by the pile
I have this stupid little grin on me
When I’m in the coffee aisle
My tongue has much less friction
When the mud flows through my diction
And, it’s hard to get the words out
When the caffeine’s in the kitchen

Sunday morning coffee
Sunday morning coffee

It’s Sunday afternoon
I haven’t done a single thing
My head is throbbing from the java
And the eighteen danish rings
Just can’t find my concentration
‘Cause Juan Valdez is making us another cup of
French Vanilla to feed my endless craving for

Sunday morning coffee
Sunday morning coffee
Sunday morning coffee
Sunday morning coffee
Track Name: wake up girl

Wake up girl
You don’t need me to remind you
What you survive
Take this time to realize

The world beyond
Took it’s best shot
But, it made you stronger than ever
Yeah

Track Name: bad luck
Kiss the rabbit’s foot
And I toss the salt off my shoulder
I keep a keen eye out for the harbinger, but

I got bad luck
bad luck
I got bad luck
bad luck
If it wasn’t for bad luck
I wouldn’t have any luck at all

Kiss the Blarney Stone
And I court the ladybug
I keep a keen eye out for the harbinger, but

I got bad luck
bad luck
I got bad luck
bad luck
If it wasn’t for bad luck
I wouldn’t have any luck at all
If it wasn’t for bad luck
I wouldn’t have any luck at all

“C’mon guys, really?”
“Oh no, bad luck jazz solo”
“Seriously?”
“What is this, Spinal Tap?”
“Oh my God, that show was aweful”

Kiss my lucky stars
And I do the lucky shake
I keep a keen eye out for the harbinger, but

I got bad luck
bad luck
I got bad luck
bad luck
If it wasn’t for bad luck
I wouldn’t have any luck at all
If it wasn’t for bad luck
I wouldn’t have any luck at all
If it wasn’t for bad luck
I wouldn’t have any luck at all
Track Name: skyline
The wheel is spinning
But, never going anywhere
And, the skyline, it climbs
But, livin’ in the shadows

Yeah, I’m taking my time
This life’s mine
And I’m shinin’…shine, shine

Yeah, I’m taking my time
This light’s mine
And I’m shinin’…shine, shine

Together, we stand
But, divided, I’m a little higher
Don’t look down or
you could lose your balance

Yeah,
I’m taking my time
This life’s mine
And I’m shinin’…shine, shine

Yeah, I’m taking my time
This light’s mine
And I’m shinin’…shine, shine

Can you live with less than
“All you ever wanted?”
Can you live with more than
“What I've got?”

Yeah, I’m taking my time
This life’s mine
And I’m shinin’…shine, shine

Yeah, I’m taking my time
This light’s mine
And I’m shinin’…shine, shine

Track Name: saboteur
Are "we the people"?
Or what used to be?
A murder of cronies
Picking through the bones
Of our Lady of patinaed Liberty
An American star-mangled travesty

I don’t know you anymore
I don’t know you anymore
Anymore

Follow the money
Follow the money and she'll
Lead you to the saboteur
The greatest degeneration
In the history of
The freedom nation

I don’t know you anymore
I don’t know you anymore
I don’t know you anymore
I don’t know you anymore
Anymore

Are "we the people"?
Or what used to be?
A murder of cronies
Picking through the bones
Of our Lady of patinaed Liberty
An American star-mangled travesty

I don’t know you anymore
I don’t know you anymore
I don’t know
Track Name: mud & sky
Mud and sky
High above the eastern crush I knew
This must be it

It calls your name
Comforting a weary soul in need
You just don’t know

You got a fire
Fire in your heart
You got a fire
Fire in your heart

Mud and sky
Turquoise trails that lead to secret lands
This must be it

It calls your name
Comforting a weary soul in need
You just don’t know

You got a fire
Fire in your heart
You got a fire
Fire in your heart

Mud and sky
High above the eastern crush I knew
This must be it

Mud and sky
Turquoise trails that lead to secret lands
This must be it

You got a fire
Fire in your heart
You got a fire
Fire in your heart
You got a fire
