about

Following the summer of ‘97 I planned to move to San Francisco with a friend. I awaited her letter giving me the green light. The leaves changed color. Temperatures dropped below zero. A brutal chill crept in. The letter never came. Three years of geographical hop-scotch were over and I was left to face stillness.

More than ever the cold felt unbearable. Whimsical summer bade farewell and the claustrophobia of winter approached. I regulated myself to the floor of my friend’s spare bedroom. In the course of travel I’d parted with most my possessions. I didn’t own a lamp. I lived in darkness until a friend bought me a candle.

And so marched the procession from depressed September to unstable October to suicidal November. I documented my harrowing journey into previously unexplored darkness. These songs became my AUTUMN.

Track Name: I'm Gonna Stay Str8
She’ll kill a few brain cells today
“I just need one” that’s what he’d say
Representing what I hate
That’s why I stay straight

Former straight-edge vegan boy
Had lots of talk but now enjoys
“Drugs,” he says “for recreation”
Another trend: disintegration
No, no, no, I don’t do it
Tell me why do you?

Don’t want half-assed apologies
Why justify your life to me
If you feel your reasoning true
Take pride in what you do

Don’t need no “X” to let it show
X’s are for tic-tac-toe
My big mouth can communicate
Jeremy Gloff will stay straight

(chorus)

No, no, no I don’t do it
No, no, no I don’t need it
No, no, no I don’t do it
Tell me why do you?
I don’t wanna be like you…
Track Name: The Summertime Me
A boy of magic
No kiss good-bye
Separation
Growing time
Passing moments
A meaningless winter night
I thought I found love with you
As you left I whispered goodbye
In the wintertime…

Thru the morning
Into the sallow night
Your sorrow swallowed you
Your sadness became mine
In the spaces
Unexpectedly you’re found
Unhappy now
I won’t always be
Someday you’ll see
The summertime me

It is so hard to watch you go
Don’t look at me
It is so hard to watch you go
Look at me
It’s so hard to watch you go
Just walk away from me
It’s so hard to watch you go
It’s coming back for you.
