this is the one, this is the one, this is the one day you can’t get me to run won’t be moved along I’m here to finish what I came to do today I can’t be dissuaded I can’t be put down fire your warning shot across my bow I don’t see the danger where you want me to and I don’t see how you can unseat my resolve used to bow down in my own home you are the ruler of a doomed dominion that I must dethrone didn’t used to feel a part of it so i let you run the show now this is the one, the one day, you can’t get me to run no, no learned along the way I can never win love and understanding, patience wearing thin slapped me in the face and now you’re the victim there’s something wrong here learned along the way I can never win love and understanding, patience wearing thin fog rolled in and now it’s slowly burning off

don’t want to think about you trying then kneeling at the altar of our past to grieve the lie I’m poisoned by this image of a life with someone else holding you saying “it’s alright, time won you over too” freedom was and now it’s gone away tears did fall, they fell down from your face well I’m thinking ‘bout you now driving round with my brother don’t know that he understands how hard it is to let you go got a pen in my hand, think I’ll move it to the other don’t know what I’m gonna write only hope it pulls me closer to you freedom was and now it’s gone away tears did fall, they fell down from your face but that was a long time ago when your eyes were on me and we weren’t on this telephone saying it is better now that we are on our own I tell you now that cuts me straight down to the bone even though I said it with you freedom was and now it’s gone away tears did fall, they fell down from your face

every night I dream the same red and green and not a change no book has told me the meaning though many they try to claim I might be the stable servant I might be behind the reins but in this dream, of this certain I don’t get to know your name I’m looking for my own Joseph but not on the road traveling remember he gave dreams meaning long before they parted the sea but I’m not a great big pharaoh I don’t have the world to sell just give me a modern-day hero come to life from the fairy tales we all, we all, we all dance and sing to the rhythm it’s a heed to the call, that’s just the way things are we all walk in big grooved circles harnessed up to pump at the well we all wear our bits and blinders humid air, flies, swishing tails you may pity the beast of burden but in me I know there's one promise me, I keep working for the day that will never come we all, we all, we all dance and sing to the rhythm it’s a heed to the call, that’s just the way things are we all ostrich heads in the sand we all escape over sea or land we all don’t talk about it, it’s coming back we all don’t ask cuz answer we can’t

you searched me out and found me with both of my hands tied up offered me help. it’s hard to believe but I’d rather pretend that it’s not a real-life story I’m just resting, I can use my mouth one day I’ll have your courage, knock on the door, say I’ve come to find out I’m acting out all the instincts that I’ve been sold I’m moving on and others are paying but I’d rather be told it’s not a real life person that feels the pain I’m dishing out plan my escape in the night, with no note to my son yes I’ve thought about that maybe I’ll tell my story but it’s not the time right now I’d rather pretend I’m not lonely flash a smile, bathe in the limelight you said that I can only understand when it’s all spelled out maybe with fame and glory I’ll pay the price have you thought about that?

days are long now that love is lost to me nothing you said could have helped me predict that you would ever leave I’m making a resolution to change all I’m doing and it’s not illusion, this time I’m coming clean well I’ve done wrong, I have no claim to innocence there’s gotta be a way soon you’ll be back for me I know now won’t ever turn my back again won’t turn my back again, soon, you’ll be back for me I followed you outside expecting to turn the tide but this time you said goodbye to me without me you ran right out the door oooh and I was soon to see how hard it would be to live this life alone well I’ve done wrong, I have no claim to innocence there’s gotta be a way soon you’ll be back for me I know now won’t ever turn my back again won’t turn my back again, soon, you’ll belong to me you belong to me but it’s taking a long time to put into place this old and rusty key and to turn the lock again it’s getting harder and harder to smile I’ve been denied, I spend this thought into the night there’s gotta be a way soon you’ll belong to me

think by the time you get here I’ll be down by the lake throwing lines, fishing for something to say we can talk about the fall in the Garden of Eden make a comment on the weather, “it’s out of season” this way we’ll be playing a tape do you enter rooms with people laughing and feel the fool they’re doing their own thing but in your head it’s all about you we can talk about the fall in the Garden of Eden make a comment on the weather, “it’s out of season” this way we’ll be playing a tape

His forthcoming LP, “I Was on the Moon” is his most ambitious in scope. It is slated for release early summer 2016.
