about

This album is a collection of vignettes, that follow my quest throughout the city of Chicago. A city so tantalizing, filled with promise and hope. Listen, and hear as all that hope sometimes dwindles, but gets built back up just as fast. The 5 songs on the album represents a different scene, from the last 5 years of my life.

released February 28, 2013

A special thanks to Rae Bee's for creating the trippy cat album art!

Track Name: Shake What Mother Gave You
Shake What Mother Gave You!

Shake what mother gave you
Shake every sweet bit she gave
Shake what mother gave you
Shake every sweet bit she gave
The way you move
a man won't soon forget

Take what the lord gave you
Make it move in unholy ways
Take what the lord gave you
Make it move in unholy ways
She's an angel child
who's bound for her descent

I noticed you in a crowded room
Put a dollar in the jukebox
Playing a tune
That makes her hip swivel,
Pure and simple
She's got a jar full of jelly
that I'm trying to get into

Jump into the rhythm
Jump into the neon glowing
Shake all mother gave you
Every which way it's coming and going
She's one of a kind
the night is almost through

Shaking something special
tonight's the night she gives it away
Shaking something special
tonight's the night she gives it away
Let's make our way
to the exit light.
(what a night!)

Sipping on my potion
Came up to the notion
I've got to get a little closer to you
But when I approached
My jaw dropped low
Because I knew this woman was a hundred proof

Shake what mother gave you!!!!!
Track Name: Good As Gold
Good As Gold


Through high and low you have you've been by my side
and I by yours watching black water rise.
There's far too much trouble flooding our lives,
dive deep into it with me, you decide.

I trust that you won't let me die alone,
got no better place to go,
she's good as gold.

You could have fled while you had the chance,
way up the high hills and never looked back.
But here you remain, killing time with me still,
Sail us away on my last dollar bill.

Love's me the same whether rich, or poor,
Stronger than stone, truth be told,
she's good as gold.

Some come and they go,
but she holds her own.

I trust that you won't let me die alone,
got no better place to go,
she's good as gold.

Love's me the same whether rich , or poor,
Stronger than stone, truth be told,
she's good as gold.
Track Name: Highway Time
HIGHWAY TIME
Highway time is slow time, Heading cross interstate line. Heading down to see you soon, Already a year gone by.
I hope when I arrive, I'm alive and not a ghost to you. This highway time. Going on while it all is slipping by. I'm doing everything I can, to pass this highway time.
I know its been awhile, babe, We ain't spoke much since. That being so, I packed my things, and off down the road I went.
Half way there through Missouri, I'm back on board from nothing, down to you. This highway time, going to count every road sign. I'm doing everything I can, to pass this highway time.
7 hours, since I've left Memphis, My tickets almost through. Can't explain why I'm unhappy, just more or less confused. Traveled a thousand miles just to see, my old girl through. I'm doing everything I can,
to pass this highway time.
Track Name: Ashtray Alleyway
Ashtray Alleyway

I woke up in an alleyway again
Struggling to find out where I've been
Yesterday is gone
Today ain't got much longer
Read it in the news
All these point of views
Point me nowhere
Wash these blues away

I've got to find mine in the sun
Lately I can't find where it came from
There ain't no compromise
I see it in your eyes
The purest and the booze
I just can't refuse
I'm a boy that's born to lose
and wash away

I'm a real hard worker ,
but work is hard to find
That's why when I quit the beat
I hit the street and the bottom shelf

I'm gonna kiss these moon and stars goodnight
This here alleyway don't treat me right
Ashtray alleyway is where I shall remain
If I can't break the chains
then I can't quit the heat
Winter's cold
My bones are frozen
I just can't walk away
Track Name: Sour Grapes
Sour Grapes

Steady getting through it ,
But theres too much pressure
Can't pay the bills
because money's been tight
Head's gone spinning
Because I lack direction
Asking "How can I savor the fruits of life?"

All these troubles of mine
I keep them back on the vine
I'm taking these sour grapes,
And making sweet wine
I can't walk this crooked line
It's got me caught in a bind
Taking these sour grapes,
And making sweet wine

I met a girl
she was a dancer,drug hustler, john juggler,
But I didn't mind
Treated me kind when no one gave me the time
She got me mixed up in some risky business
It's a sickness, this addiction
gets you wrapped up with a quickness
Sedated to the fact I need to quit this
Chemical dependency's a chronic desease
when your supporting this modern form of slavery

All these troubles of mine
I keep them back on the vine
I'm taking these sour grapes,
And making sweet wine
I can't walk this crooked line
It's got me caught in a bind
Taking these sour grapes,
And making sweet wine

Oh my God there's so much pressure!!!!
Old girl's strung out and I can''t stand the sight
Sour weather has shown that nothing grown right in some time
I'm flopping on this hand because karma's come to set it right

Steady doing her time
I've got to put her behind,
And take these sour grapes to make sweet wine
Together doing our time
I've got to get what's mine
Take sour grapes to make sweet wine!!!!

All these troubles of mine
I keep them back on the vine
I'm taking these sour grapes,
And making sweet wine
I can't walk this crooked line
It's got me caught in a bind
Taking these sour grapes,
And making sweet wine
