Youth And Young Manhood (2003)


Red Morning Light

"You know you could've been a wonder,
Taking your circus to the sky"

Happy Alone

"All wrapped up in being 19,
chasing stars that are falling"

Joe's Head

"It's too late for apologies,
they're falling at my feet"

California Waiting

"I feel too close to be losing touch
By givin' in, what am I giving up?
Am I losing way too much?"
"I'm going so fast that I can’t slow down
It's hard to get up when you’re spinning round and round
I'd give you the news but nothing is changed
I'd sing you a song but they blew it away"

Molly's Chambers

"Just another girl that wants to rule the world
Any time or place
And when she gets into your head
You know she's there to stay"
"And when you think she’s let you in,
That's when she fades away"


"I'm looking for something, just sink in my teeth without any crying
But I can't find no place or nothing, where thrills are cheap and love is divine"

Holy Roller Novocaine

"I don't care if you're by yourself
Or you're all alone when you need my help
Keep that smile on your pretty face
Cause you don't have much I can't take away"

Talihina Sky

"Life goes by on a Talihina sky"

Aha Shake Heartbreak (2004)

  • We drank wine in the matinee
    And the spotlight showed what I chased away
    • Milk
  • I'll be the one to show you the way
    You'll be the one to always complain
    • The Bucket
  • At least there's a record that I'll love to play,
    Dreaming about a place I'll never see
    • Day Old Blues

Because Of The Times (2007)


Black Thumbnail

"Don’t take these boots off me when you think I’m dead
I’ll still be running from the demon in my head
I’ll be that person till my dying day
I try so awful hard but I can’t change"

True Love Way

"I want in like a substitute
I’ve been working awful hard for you
But you don’t say you just hold your breath
So I can’t touch what I haven’t yet"
"She’s a cold one and it hurts me so
It’s a dark path and a heck of a toll"
"We'd be so free; happy alone"
"Pushing and pulling weight
It’s the hard part but the true love way"
"And I feel crazy when I see your face"


"Make me feel like I’m the one who moves you;
The only one you see"

The Runner

"And it’s cold;
And it’s cold when you’re near"


"I kind of think I like her
Kind of think I do"

My Third House

"You blow me away
When you don't try"

Only By The Night (2008)

  • Stranded in a spooky town
    Spotlights are swaying and
    The phone lines are down
    Floor is crackling cold
    She took my heart,
    I think she took my soul
    With the moon I'll run
    Far from the carnage of the fiery sun
    • Closer
  • Off in the night while you live it up I'm off to sleep
    Waging wars to shake the poet and the beat
    I hope it's gonna make you notice, someone like me
    • Use Somebody
  • I get lost in the light, so high I don’t want to come down
    To face the loss of the good thing that I had found
  • So I drink and I smoke and I ask if you’re ever around
    Even though it was me that drove us right in the ground
  • See the time we shared it was precious to me
    But all the while I was dreaming of revelry
  • Born to run, baby run like a stream down a mountainside
    With the wind at my back I don’t ever even bat an eye
    Just know it was you all along who had a hold of my heart "
  • Everything just felt so incomplete;
    dreaming of revelry"
    • Revelry
  • Given the chance, I’m gonna be somebody
    If for one dance, I’m gonna be somebody
    Open the door, it’s gonna make you love me
    • Be Somebody
  • Everyone noticed, everyone has seen the signs
    I’ve always been known to cross lines
    I never ever cried when I was feeling down
    I’ve always been scared of the sound
    Jesus don’t love me and no one ever carried my load
    I’m too young to feel this old
    • Cold Desert
