about

Petrified Hitchcock was written, recorded, and mixed over a few months in various locations inside and out. I liked the idea of having a mix of studio sounds and trying to bring them together in the mixing period. The title was realized during a week residency in Santa Rosa, CA where I finished a substantial amount of the recordings, and basically founded the concepts of the albums. I spent almost a month mixing and mastering the songs going through many manifestations of the album. I'm very excited with the final product and even more excited about the process of making the art.

The cover is an edited picture of an image I took at Bodega Bay.

Thank you to all who listen and relate to my music..

Track Name: Slowing Down
Slowing down, lost my breath somehow
A feeble force punches through the morning clouds
I wanna get out, I wanna get out, of this town, I wanna get out
I’m sick of being useless, I don’t wanna fall apart
Living on a fever of senseless lust and stars
Slowing down, a girl I know is found
She’s been there sitting on a train
Waiting for the future and trying to arrange
Her way out, she can’t hear a sound
All she really knows is she wants to get out
She wants to get out, of this town, she wants get out
I’m sick of being useless, I don’t wanna fall apart
Living on a fever of senseless lust and stars
I don’t wanna let down, I don’t wanna close you out
So make believe that you and I will see each other around
I don’t wanna let down, I don’t wanna close you out
So put down your phone and love me like you love yourself..
Try to implode, try to explode, fade it out again..
Track Name: Frank
A man named Frank was lost he says, “I can’t pretend
that the world is whole and that I’m over things”
A man named Frank was lost so he moved to the hills
where the people are few and far from the holes in his heart
Fragments from a lonely year, driving away searching for all we can hear, coming out of the fog
And granite tops that chip and fade, a hazardous fan spins in peculiar ways, over the stove top
A man named Frank was lost he says, “I gotta get home
to the shelter I’ve grown and the silence of one”
A man named Frank was lost then he lost his mind,
he says it’s hard to find a way out from peace of mind
Track Name: Amends
Holdin' ample time to be swollen, praise your unfit mind, wasting time in odd despair
That’s how we were found in the downtown, waiting on your lies, bolted eyes and rock filled pants
Is it time to make amends? I’m deranged and under kept
We don’t want a world of lost flesh, they just want a way to balance it
Every other day’s like on the grind, I just want a girl that’s(whose) lost her mind
Thinking on a cold damp day and waiting for the time to send things on
In the hours of your stalling I’ve been undermined and criticized for things not there
Oddly days have turned to nothing, waiting on the time and that’s just fine but I’m not there
Is it time to waste a stare on a day that wasn’t fair?
We don’t want a world of lost flesh, they just want a way to balance it
Every other day’s like a ghost town, streets empty no one’s around
Did they ever make it far west and will they ever learn to send things on?..
Track Name: Fast Forward
Its not my time to make pretend, callous eyes are over stretched and I cannot repair them.
I won’t wait for the justified and I won’t waste my little time to settle in the suburbs.
So fast forward so we can feel success
So fast forward no longer in distress..
No longer in distress..
Track Name: Universal Frost
Cast me away, the universal frost is here time to clear the way
So I took a stroll that day and found me a hidden bay
Tucked behind a hill, I’m going back tomorrow
You’ll never understand unless you come down tomorrow away from your space
Away from the darkened days
The skies will rain down in colors of pink and gold washing away the old
Cast me away, the universal frost is here time to excavate
The hours are wounded and full, but I won’t leave this school
Metaphorical and mine, I’m going back tomorrow
No one to love so call me again wasting my stars on no one’s expense
Universal frost thawing in spring no winter left to hide our mistakes
From all the above and all that we lost
So give me your lust and we’ll end what’s done..
Track Name: Machiavellian
Silent speech, it cost me nothing, I won’t wait for them
To call me up and break the silence that I made when I woke up
Get me out of here, I hate these signs and stones
Get me out of here, ordinary song
Aimless walks take me nowhere, I won’t wander less because I
Can’t relate to anyone I know, losing touch with myself
Machiavellian, so follow me down to the depths of the world
Learning how to be a criminal, so follow me down to the depths of the world
Listen the longing's out I won’t get down I can’t miss you no more..
Track Name: Vanity
Vanity she was born on the 12th, the winter winds slowly decay the holidays and wealth
She told me once she never wanted to be a woman but she loved herself like she loved her reigns over the world
Baby its hard to stop loving you I bleed for you and this Vanity she never gave me herself
Banking on the stealth I’ve created in my short sided mind I’ll learn it all some night
Sweeping up the dust in this idle space where children live and god only knows I’ve gone slow
Sweeping up the particles of a broken vase that the children broke
And I only know I’ve lost home
Vanity she was born on the 12th, repetitious grades are a like a stage I’ve failed to build
She told me often that she was a loner like I didn’t already know
That was her way to stay alone
I've lost home..
My Vanity never left me alone..
Track Name: Margery
Margery, we can’t be free
She told me once that I was overworked and losing all I had
She was right and I was glad
Margery, she ate the sun, she spit it back out on the sidewalk where we run
How was I supposed to know that she was on an inner fall
It’ll never be the same without Margery in my days
Cynical in the space where I lay
And no one understands because they all live a way typical to the way we fade
The way we fade into grey
Margery, we cant be free
She told me once that I was overqualified for my life
So I polished off my visit with the sky
In good time, Margery and I will praise our lives
Separated in a vision we derived
Track Name: Empty Phase
That’s the life I wanted, peaceful lies that hide me away
I suppose that we’re alone in fragments
Early calls from hateful laws that balance, I don’t even want to go to work today
Building lying down, catch a wave in modest solace and let down
Waiting on trial I missed so be gone and be tasteful in your bliss
Everybody’s overwhelmed with their days and their lifetime so be sure
That your mind is right and sharp and useful in this time
That’s the life I wanted, waking eyes of chocolate brown
Juxtapose your heroes on the carpet
Fever minds slaving time on practice, I don’t even wanna play the money song
Born into today, born into a way unfold your arms from your disdain
She loves the world today, she told me how she wanted more than just an empty phase
Track Name: (Reprise)
Listen the longing's out I won’t get down I can’t miss you no more..
Track Name: Garden
Back from the garden where I learned to speak
I don’t suppose that you wanted to meet me there
With ribbons in your hair, it won’t be the same if you’re down and sustain your despair, it’s not fair
Back from the Sunday when I went away
We’re in a space that was marked and arranged by the waste
Of every other kid and every other lover
They’re all on a mountain of luck, I’ve got me a bed side fuss
Climbing out of this town I’ve had enough
Give me a bill to catch this train into the hills
Where I can run away, and I can find the day, that’s all I ever wanted, if you just needed to know
And I won’t pretend, I won’t pretend, no more
The space in between is all I’ve seen and all I’ll ever know
If I don’t get out of this town..
