When you feel scared about the stories that you hear
All you got to do, my dear, is fly
When you're all alone, the phone don't ring and no one home
Open up your eyes, my love, and fly
Fly away from your tears, fly till gravity disappears
Strip your skin and let the sun in your heart
Fly till you feel no more pain
When you've got nothing to lose or gain
Fly till you tear your black inside apart
When you want to die, things don't work even when you try
Spread upon your wings and let it fly
When your throat is small, you're sitting talking to the wall
Open up your legs and let it fly
Fly away from your fear
Fly till you reach the top of this sphere
Crash your car on the boulevard and fly
Melt right through your chair
When you've got no way to go anywhere
Ascending together, you and I
When you feel numb, like Novocain makes your gums become
Give up on the ground, my friend, and fly
When your eye is wet cause of something you can't forget
All you got to do is let it fly

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
