about

Another new song from my upcoming full-length album! I hope to have the album out by the end of the year, but in the mean time, here's a little teaser!

lyrics

Rock and roll is gone, they say
It just up and went away
Zombies on the dance floor just sway a bit,
No they don't dance no more
But Tommy D has got the moves
Like a quart of Mountain Dew
His heart's pounding and his fingertips are bruised
Got nothing much left to lose

Free jazz refugees
Open up, make room for me
It's Monday night and the TV
There's nothing more than this
Cold call chordally
Flat ninths in effigy
It's just a free jazz refugee
There's nothing more or less to learn from this

Smoke signals from the stall
Lavender and alcohol
Just waiting for the fellowship to call
They come once every seven years
Study all the licks you find
A cotton candy Frankenstein
One wrong turn, got stranded in Edina
Not sure where to go from here

Free jazz refugees
Open up, make room for me
It's Monday night and the TV
There's nothing more than this
Cold call chordally
Flat ninths in effigy
It's just a free jazz refugee
There's nothing more or less to learn from this

Kurt Cobain said it all before. . .

Oh, what I wouldn't give to feel that fire again
Oh, what I wouldn't give to feel that fire again
Oh, what I wouldn't give to strike that chord within my soul
And live, just live

Free jazz refugees
Open up, make room for me
It's Monday night and the TV
There's nothing more than this
Cold call chordally
Flat ninths in effigy
It's just a free jazz refugee
There's nothing more or less to learn
Nothing more or less to learn
Nothing more or less to learn. . . from this
