about

This is crazy. I recorded this track at the Popakademie in Mannheim, Germany in 2011!

I had been wanting to release it for a long time but for many reasons I just kept holding it off --self doubt being one of the major ones... WELL, no more of that, BYE FELICIA, it's all about release and moving forward now!

So with GREAT THANKS to the Popakademie & my band that helped create this recording, to Alexander Schubert who did the final mix/master, and to Cullen Siewert for collaborating with me on the Album Art, I give you my song 'Roller Coaster' ... I think you are going to love it!

lyrics

TENDER BEATS ABOVE A CHURNING HEAT THAT COULD LEAD ME TO EXPOSE MY INNER WORKINGS
I’LL SUPPRESS IT NOW, CUZ LORD KNOWS THAT I KNOW HOW
I WILL WEAR A SILLY SMIRK TO JERK THE LIGHTNING…
BUT ONCE THE THUNDER RUMBLES IN
IT WINS AND INTO A SPIN I’M THROWN OVERBOARD
TOWARD THE OCEAN SKIN
THE TRUTH IT HURTS, A SUDDEN LURCH, AS I CRUMBLE FROM WITHIN…

UNPREPARED, BOTH CAUGHT UNAWARE
AND WE’RE TRIPPING OVER ALL THE REPERCUSSIONS
AND LOOK AT US NOW DROWNING IN OUR OWN DOUBTS
AND FIGHTING FOR THE RIGHT TO HAVE OPINION.
BUT ONCE THE RAINCLOUDS DISAPPEAR,
IT’S CLEAR THE TRUTH IS DRAWING NEAR
AND MY HEAVY HEART IS DONE WITH ALL THE TEARS
THE TRUTH IT HURTS, A SUDDEN LURCH AS I RELEASE MY FEAR

INSTRUMENTAL

I’M ESCAPING FROM THIS LOVE
I’VE HAD ENOUGH
AND THOUGH I DO STILL LOVE YOU
I AM SICK OF THIS ROLLER COASTER RIDE
AND THE WAY I WOULD DENY
I’M MOVING ON

AND I KNOW THAT WE COULD TAKE IT SLOW NOW
BUT I’M NOT ABOUT TO CHANGE MY MIND
WE HAD OUR CHANCE AT TRANSCENDANCE
AND I’M NOT ABOUT TO SELL MY SMILES
CALL ME CRAZY, CALL ME STUPID
CALL ME WEAK, NO I WON’T DO THIS
STOP AND WATCH ME FLY

FOR I’M ESCAPING FROM THIS LOVE
I’VE HAD ENOUGH
AND THOUGH I DO STILL LOVE YOU
I AM SICK OF THIS ROLLER COASTER RIDE
AND THE WAY I WOULD DENY
I’M MOVING ON

INSTRUMENTAL REPEAT (FALSE ENDING)

(KAZOO SOLO)
CALL ME CRAZY, CALL ME STUPID
CALL ME WEAK, NO I WON’T DO THIS
STOP AND WATCH ME FLY…
