about

Nude is a stripped down and laid back recording. A little dissonant; a little acoustic and a little indie rock with introspective candidness.

Track Name: Lonesome Jack
You used to aggrevate
But, now he’s composting
Sparky dug him up
And brought him back again
Hey, don’t you know that
We all need to see the truth
Don’t be lonesome
Your girlfriend’s next to you
She’s true
She’s true
She’s the other girl for you
Don’t you know that
We all see the truth
Hey, I can see the roses
Blooming in your hair
You’re barely dusty
Sheriff Coltrane
Says to come down
To the station
But, we all see the truth
Track Name: Weird about Steve
There’s something weird about Steve
Must have been the Bee
Or something he said to me
Now, he wants me to believe
But, I had to leave

It’s just not my style
He stood there with a smile
I’m not trying to be mean
But, there’s something weird about Steve
Yeah

We didn’t make the list
Never been kissed by
The big machine
I’m not trying to be mean
But, there’s something weird about Steve

There’s something weird about Steve
Must have been the Bee
Or something he said to me
Now, he wants me to believe
But, I had to leave
Yeah
Track Name: Cigarette
Cigarette
Leave me alone
Home sweet home

Cigarette
My only friend

On the rooftop
In the rain
Draw a slow breath
Through the flame

Cigarette
What do ya say?
Today is the day
I’m gonna find some
One to free
Cigarette
Bleed into me

In the auto
On the highway
Draw a slow breath
Through the flame
Can’t hang on
I’m too insane

Cigarette
Something ‘bout her kiss
Oh God
Do I miss
Is that all you can say?
Cigarette
Take away this pain
Pain

Cigarette
I don’t smoke
Track Name: Chinchilla Doldrums
Sleep
To sleep
Too deep to
Drifting doldrums
I follow the headlights
As they rise across the ceiling
False sunrises bring hope
And then fade again
Sleep

To sleep in unfettered skin
To wear the life of another
I won’t find that here
They know me
Anywhere I go
I must have raped, murdered
Or practiced law
Stones hurled
And angry faces
Sleep

Sleep
Because you and I
Are just one
With endless unfolding stories
That we will someday
Sit around and recant
But, for now
sleep

And, we will meet again
In St. Peter’s restroom
You’ll know me
By my smile
Sleep

Urinal shaped men
Crying in unison
Tears run slowly
As the headlights are
Hurled across the ceiling
And all of those angry faces
Bring hope
And then fade again
Sleep
And the world is yours
Awaken to follow the headlights
But, this time it’s for real
And there is no second chance

Sleep
Before someone moves into your skin
And decelerates
All that you have worked for
In a urinal lavender cake swirl

Sleep
And we will meet again
Sleep

Sleep
And we will meet again
Sleep
Track Name: Burl Ives died
Burl Ives died a Broadway man
Broadway is where they say you can
Don't go here, don't go there
Burl Ives died a Broadway man

Him and that bear on channel ten
Guess I'm lookin' for his friend
a Broadway man

Burl Ives took the train
Saw him at the station and I couldn't change
don't go here, don't go there
Burl Ives died, he took the train

Weren't you the general in the war?
Guess I'm lookin' for the man next door
A Broadway man

Burl Ives died a Broadway man
Broadway is where they say you can
Don't go here, don't go there
Burl Ives died a Broadway man

The lights went down and he rolled on in
Saw him in the light and I knew him then
Yeah, it must have been
Yeah, it must have been
A Broadway man
Track Name: It's fun until someone gets hurt
I don’t know me anymore
And I won’t think about your face
I found a new way
To vanish without a trace
And I can’t wait
To try it out again, again, again

It’s fun until someone gets hurt

This door
These walls
This time
We fall
Through the metaphors
This door
These walls
In class before
Anyone can see

Yet, still I am
Waiting to relate
And, I can’t wait to
Try it out again, again, again

It’s fun until someone gets hurt
It’s fun until someone gets hurt
It’s fun until someone gets hurt
It’s fun until someone gets hurt
Track Name: You take the world
You can run
You can hide
You can go
Way down inside
My head
I’m dead

Shreddin’ the pictures
Of you woman
Yeah

You can steal
You’ve got the wheel
And I’m flying down
Some lonesome highway

Shreddin’ all those pictures
Of you girl

You take the world
Leave it, leave it, leave it
Track Name: Bad for me
It’s three, two, one
Time to go to the end
To keep this promise
That I’m in

Reach down in
I’m full of sin
I’ll never have
This chance again

Does she know?
I know
I see her light below
I love her so
But, all she does is go

Go, go, go
And leave me be
I don’t need
This crush on me
I should show
I need no sympathy

I can be
I can be so bad for me

I don’t set my mind
To anything
That I can’t get
Oh, don’t forget
Those mental letters
Sent today
I found a way
To pay the rent

I can be
I can be so bad for me
I can be
I can be so bad for me
Yeah

It’s three, two, one
Time to go to the end
To keep this promise
That I’m in

Reach down in
I’m full of sin
I’ll never have
This chance again

Go, go, go
And leave me be
I don’t need
This crush on me

I should show
I need no sympathy

I can be
I can be so bad for me
I can be
I can be so bad for me
Yeah
Track Name: mellow, unity, together, clean electric, - Get it together
I can feel it slidin’
Must be coming out
Fillin’ in the blank spaces
With a sigh

There may be more
To this story
But, I might not want to know
Too many words misspoken
I was hopin’ they would go

Yeah, I know what you’re after
But, I need it too
Gotta be some other way
To get it together
Get it together

Don’t get up in the mornin’
Get my best peace in bed
Try to pay no mind
To those voices
But, they repossess my head

This may be the last time
That we go
Don’t leave alone in this place
Before I can even
Find the door

Yeah, I know what you’re after
But, I need it too
Gotta be some other way
To get it together

Yeah, I know what you’re after
But, I need it too
Gotta be some other way
To get it together

Yeah, I know what you’re after
But, I need it too
Gotta be some other way
To get it together

Yeah, I know what you’re after
But, I need it too
Gotta be some other way
To get it together

Get it together, yeah
Get it together, yeah
