When I had a monkey pull my hair
You were the one who put it there
So you could pull it out again
You were a friendly friend friend friend
And now you're gone

No one ever made me feel the way I never felt
Everybody says "OK" to everything
Someone somewhere has a paper where it's written down
You were, well maybe that's someone else

Once I think you saw me changing hue
I didn't know just what to do
It always rains upon the hill
I like the rain and like it still
You were the one who's one with me
I couldn't tell you cause of me
And all the love I couldn't show
When it's too late I'll let you know
And now you're gene
Once upon a time a girl I knew
And now you're gone

Influences include Violent Femmes, the Velvet Underground & Talking Heads, but the music of his forebears is filtered through his own distinctive world view & sonic approach, resulting in a creation uniquely his own.

Simple without being simplistic, accessible without being sycophantic, & clever without feeling smug, he achieves a compelling balance between the new & the familiar. - Scott Hollis
