about

The flowers and the bees Love the Sun and the trees, you know that they thrive together. So why don't we? Written during a period in which I was traveling the west coast with my partner and living out of our van "Samson," this album is an exploration of the experiences, people and places that taught me what I really need in order to not just live, but truly thrive. Included within this exploration is the question, what is it that keeps us all from thriving, in our environment, our relationships, and in our own minds?

Track Name: Thrive
The flowers and the bees Love the Sun and the trees, you know that they thrive together
The waves on the sea set the pelicans free, you know that they fly together
The king of the jungle needs the elephant’s rumble, you know they’re alive together
Everything in this place has its time and its space, you know that we thrive together

And I know I thrive on Love, so let’s thrive together

The river’s flowing feeds the fish in the ocean, you know that they thrive together
The tiniest bug flies the heavens above, you know that they fly together
Those worms in the dirt feed all life on the Earth, you know we’re alive together
Every creature and seed needs the air that we breath, no doubt that we thrive together

And I know I thrive on Love, and I know you thrive on Love, no doubt we thrive on love, so let’s thrive together

The smallest child needs her mother’s smile, you know that they thrive together
Those kids in the street with nothing to eat, still they thrive together
The prince and the pauper got the same thing to offer, you know we thrive together
Everyone that you see has got someone they need, no doubt that we thrive together

And I know I thrive on Love, and you know you thrive on Love, no doubt we thrive on love, so let’s thrive together
Come on, let’s thrive together
Everyone, let’s thrive together
Track Name: Hey Alright
I’ve been running ‘round these days finding things I can’t replace
I’ve seen the Moon caught in a phase in this extraordinary place

Hey alright, I guess it’s time
Hey alright, I leave you behind

I’ve been pacing down this floor but I can’t seem to find the door
Am I waiting for my turn?
Is there something I should learn?

Hey alright, I guess it’s time
Hey alright, I leave this behind

But I’ve been sitting down so long I can feel it in my bones
I’ve been waiting all along for this life to call my own

Hey alright, I guess it’s time
Hey alright, I leave this behind
Track Name: Honey Bee
My woman she’s something to see
My lady she’s the honey bee
She roams from flower to flower
She makes me that sweet honey

I’ll take me that cup of coffee
I’ll take me that cup of tea
I don’t need no cream no sugar
Just give me that sweet honey

I tried me that dark molasses
I tried me that sugar cane
I tried me that artificial sweetener
But that shit don’t taste the same

I like honey from a wild flower
I like honey from a citrus tree
I like honey from a field of clover
But ain’t nothing like my honey bee

Will you find her in the city
Or will you find her up in a tree
Wherever she be buzzing
She’s making that sweet honey

Early now in the morning
She’s buzzing right next to me
Late, late now in the evening
She’s making that sweet honey
Track Name: You Will
Every day you’re thinking ‘bout it
All these worries running ‘round
Inside your head, inside your heart
Why’s it got to be so hard
All this pain, all this doubt
Makes you want to scream and shout
Always tryin’ to figure out
What the hell’s it all about

But you will’ you’ll find out what it’s all about
Of this I have no doubt

People try to get together
Always thinking that they’ll never
Find the one that they need
To fix their life, make them complete
Keep them safe in the cold
Fill that hole down in their soul
Till they find that they were wrong
They were perfect all along

But they will, they’ll find out what it’s all about
Of this I have no doubt

You say it so much it must be true
There ain’t no one who’s gonna want you
But you know it ain’t the way it is
You’re addicted to some bad ideas
I know it might sound cliche’
But you don’t have to win that race
Just find the truth down in your heart
Yeah, all you got to do is start

But you will, and I will, and we will, we’ll find out what it’s all about
Of this I have no doubt
Track Name: Step Aside
You say I oughta see things in your way
Like all I’ve come to known is just a lie
All along my world was just a fake
If I could only see it through your eyes

But these are not your eyes
And this is not your life
So if you step aside maybe you could see the light

Yesterday I was hungry for a meal
I stepped into a fight
I asked a man to imagine how he’d feel
If he could see it through their eyes

I know they’re not your eyes
I know I have no right
But if you step aside maybe you could see the light
I their eyes

I met a man as I was walking on the way
He said “brother can you spare a dime”
I looked at him and I forgot what I was gonna say
I saw a mirror in his eyes

I knew they were my eyes
But in another life
And as I looked inside all that I could see was light
As I looked inside
I saw they were my eyes
But in another life
And all that I could see was light
In his eyes
Track Name: Birds Above Me
Down on a mountain
Snow in the sky
I’m struggling to see
With snow in my eyes
But I can feel you
Everywhere
The shadows on me
From the birds in the air

Cast your shadow on me from high above

In my lonely
My lonely days
I would give
But I would take
Now I am rising
And I can see
The dawn is shining
On you and me

Shine your light on me now every day

The birds above me
They speak in squeaks, they speak in squawks
They’re trying to tell me I’m one of the flock
So now I am flying high above, above the ground
Now I am singing a brand new sound
So fly on with me
Just spread your wings and lift yourself
You know you’re only lying to yourself
Track Name: Who Am I revisited
Here I am with all my friends
Here I am alone again
All I have I can not keep
I have much more than I need

So who am I to say I’m stuck
Who am I to say life ain’t enough
When I got everything I need
All laid out in front of me
My food it grows right out the ground
There’s more than enough to go around
The trees they make the air I breath
All that is the Earth beneath my feet

So I got everything I need
But does that mean I’m happy
I’m tired, I’m bored, I’m sad, I’m scared
Of what surrounds me everywhere
Those evil men with their evil games
I look inside and I see the same

So who am I to place my blame
Who am I, yeah tell me what’s my name
Who am I, what can I do
I’m Just a man
I’m just like you

Now as far as I can see
All I can see exists in me
And there ain’t nothing in my world
That isn’t somewhere in my soul

So who am I, what can I do
How will I ever make it through
I’ll make my life a work of art
I’ll be a candle in the dark
Give thanks for the Earth beneath my feet
And savor every bite I eat
Give my Love to every man
My enemies, my lovers and my friends
It don’t matter who you are
I count my family like the stars

When this life of mine is done
I will go back to where I’m from
Track Name: Music For What It's Worth
If I sang you this song would you give me a dollar
If I said sing along now would you bother
If I bared my soul here would you listen
If I never made a dime would I still have a reason
To keep singing

If I wore nicer clothes would it make me hotter
Is it the holes in my jeans that makes you think that I’m a pauper
If I sang different words would this song be better
In the eyes of the men way up high in their tower
Built on the power to choose what we hear

If I was up on a stage with the spotlight on me
Would you say I was a rock star shining brightly
If you saw my face there on your TV
Would you be more inclined to listen to me

If instead of this verse I played a guitar solo
Or sang some cliche’ hook that everyone knows
If this song sounded more like something you had heard
Would it still be my music
For what its worth
Track Name: Walking Running Sprinting Flying
I am walking, I am running, I am sprinting, I am flying
I am floating, I am swimming, I am sinking, I am drowning
I am sitting, I am reading, I am thinking, I am freaking
I am cruising, I am driving, I am speeding, I am crashing

I am beating, I am breathing, I am hearing, I am seeing
I am grooving, I am moving, I am dancing, I am singing
I am talking, I am speaking, I am preaching, I am screaming
I am working, I am praying, I am hoping I am leaving this behind
Track Name: They're Lying to You on the TV
Well they’re lying to you on the TV
Things just ain’t what they used to be
All around the world leaves are falling from the tree

They’re telling you that you could be
All that you ever wanna be
But what they’re really selling is volunteer slavery
You don’t own the house that you live in
You don’t grow the food that you’re eating
All around the world leaves are falling from the tree

Tell me now have you ever seen the soul of another
One of your sisters and brothers sleeping out in the gutter
Ain’t no roof over their head
Ain’t no comfort in their bed
All around the world leaves are falling from the tree

How many times have they told you
There ain’t nothing that you can do
It’s just the way it is and things ain’t ever gonna change
But they’re lying to you on the TV
You only see what you wanna see
All around the world leaves are falling from the tree

All the things that you thought to be true may quickly desert you
Everything you’ve come to rely on may slowly fade away
I ain’t trying to scare you
Only make you think
All about the life that you’re leading
All about the people you’re Loving
If all of this were gone
Who’s gonna hold you up?
