about

Someone else, somewhere else, something else.
“Else” it’s been done from start to finish on minimal equipment at home. It's been recorded using only two guitars, a single mic, a pair of cheap drum brushes and a small akai pad controller. Its foundation is still the blues, although it has some rock-ish stuff lurking in. I guess the sampled jazzy instrumentals stuff is an influence too. It's my "blue note meets sub pop" thing, and I hope you enjoy it.

Track Name: Below
I hope you all good players
even those long gone
will lend me your wailin'
to tell a word

they're pushing us down, oh down below;
pushing us down, down,
below

they're calling us spoiled babies
and still don't pay for our work
they say it's like free training
but we're growing old

they're pushing us down, oh down below;
keeping us down, down, below
they're keeping us down, down below;
they're pushing us down, down
below

don't you understand, little darlin'
all them words are messin' around with your head
well you gotta brace yourself for their lies and their maybes
to get by

they're pushing us down, oh down below;
kepin' us down, down, below
they're keeping us down, down below;
they're pushing us down, down below
they're pushing us down, oh down, below
down below.
we're draggin em down, down, below;
I'm waiting em down, down, below.
Track Name: Pride
It comes sometimes when you're down
when you're looking mad
when you frown
when you're out of reach
and expect me to call
while I'm out bein' freak
and you know it at all,
but still pretend you don't

all the times
I'm in search of the light
there, there goes my pride
suffocated in the night

It comes sometimes when you're down
when you're looking mad
when you frown
when you're out of town
and expect me to call
while I'm out bein' a freak
and you know it at all,
you still pretend and say
"hey I didn't have a clue"
"you didn't call my name"
"I didn't think it was you"
if tomorrow it's okay out of the blue
I'll drain my sorrows
and spend the day to make up to you
at least until next time

all the times
I'm in search of the light
there, there goes my pride
suffocated in the night

well I'v been tied for so long
long enough to make it right
if it's still wrong
and I know it isn't fair to remind you
it sounds so harsh, well

tender's the night
when I search for the light
there, there goes my pride
suffocated in the night
all the times
I'm in search of the light
there, there goes my pride
suffocated in the night
Track Name: A million tunes
well, I got no words to sing right now
but it has just come back to me
a memory I want to be singing about
and it's before my eyelids

the scent and the color of her hair
slowly beginning to fade
in a million tunes

the scent and the color of her hair
slowly my memory fades

but I don't want anyone to see it right now
it's a dream they can't steal
the one that i want to be dreaming about
it's well protected in my sleep

the scent and the color of her hair
slowly beginning to fade
in a milion tunes

the scent and the color of her hair
slowly my memory fades
Track Name: Right or wrong
right or wrong
well I'm tired of being humiliated
right or wrong
sick and tired of you and your lack of respect for me
right or wrong,
right or wrong,
now I'm carrying a gun
right or wrong

if you believe that I'll just sit here and wait
you might be wrong this time
that's right

right or wrong
and I'm tired of being threatened and provoked
I should get smart
I'm so pissed that it's like I'm tightly blindfolded
right or wrong,
right or wrong,
now I'm carrying a gun
right or wrong

if you believe that I'll just sit here and wait
you might be wrong this time
that's right

if you believe that I'll just sit here and wait
if you hope that I'm not coming your way
you might be wrong this time
Track Name: Closed down
I'll gladly tell you how I used to be
in those years
so I could call you at least once again
best friend
did I really believe in those things for real
down here
so I could go at least once again
back then

I've been closing down
the way I used to be,
behind the shades
of how I used to see,
closed in a frown
it's how I used to be
regardless of how
I really used to feel

I'll gladly tell you how I used to be
in those years
so I could call you at least once again
best friend
did I really believe in those things for real
down here
so I can go once I've become a man
and start all over again

I've been closing down
the way I used to be,
behind the shades
of how I used to see,
closed in a frown
it's how I used to be
regardless of how
I really used to feel
Track Name: Happy that you tried
and if you can't fight for it now
don't you know you've gotta to try?
and if you can't fight for it now
don't you know you've gotta to try?
the world is at war with you now
don't you know you've got to fight?
and if you can't fight for it now
don't you know you've gotta to try? (harden than I)

when everything fades to a broken dream...
still happy that you tried?

nobody knows anything about you
about you
anyone longs for fame but you
really do
friends and time you have spent while pursuing this
won't return
nobody knows anything
about you

when everything fades to a broken dream...
still happy that you
tried?
Track Name: Wildcat
blue
to anyone staring in your eyes you seem blue
a red velvet smile and your wildcat perfume
luring your prey into the night, reflecting the moon
it's chilly outside but you don't seem to mind
walking barefoot in grime

scorching the streets where you walk
swaying your hips coming back for more

you
locking your wildcat eyes across the Bellevue
looking for another poor bastard to screw
make your skin shine through the night, reflecting the moon
it's chilly outside, you don't seem to mind
walking barefoot in grime

blue
to anyone staring in your eyes you seem blue
a red velvet smile and your wildcat perfume
make your skin shine through the night, reflecting the moon
it's chilly outside, you don't seem to mind
it's chilly outside, you don't seem to mind
it's chilly outside, you don't seem to mind

walking barefoot in grime
Track Name: Things we said
just like anyone, I know
I can't go on
ignoring almost anything

likewise anyone I know
I'm keeping on
filling up with these empty things

everyone of them pretends
are they scared about anything?

is there anyone I know
that like me
stays up brooding all night long these days

over the things we said
things we're taking back
things we said
things we're taking back
good and bad
things we're taking back
good and bad
things we're taking back

just like anyone, I know
I might be wrong
ignoring almost anything

likewise anyone I know
I'm keeping on
filling up with these empty things

everyone of them pretends
are they scared about anything?

is there anyone I know
that like me
stays up brooding all night long these days

over the things we said
things we're taking back
things we said
things we're taking back
good and bad
things we're taking back
good and bad
things we're taking back
