Back to the New York sky Route 20 – Route 60’s where I Ran through the freeze and the heat Working for the better life I live now And it’s time to go back to the home That I used to know Mom did the best that she could Father could have done a lot more Time costs no money Forgiveness makes nobody poor Confronting the demons I created back then If I don’t do it now then when? Back to the NY town Seedy bars where the college kids drown Dreams that they say – they probably will not get They’re not jaded enough to joke about it yet And it’s time to go back to the home That I used to know Crosswords and milkshakes Convenient store afternoon blues Bingo saved my life From the drunks and the self-absorbed fools I’m digging up coffins that I buried back then If I don’t do it now then when?

The last time I saw you there Pretty lips and dirty hair Now everyone’s got a hole in their face I ran like dog when you let me chase you Kids in a nighttime driveway Turntable bring sleep our way My name was on the wall Do we miss who we were At that time at all? Chorus: Remember I said What am I doing here? Remember I said I cannot stay Remember the hurt? It’s still buried Left part of myself there that day. Check yes or no ’98 San Francisco? Frenzy – there was no answer still Sometimes you gotta accept that If you’re gonna be okay with yourself. Subways running Dawn breaks I’m about to shut down Escape drowning He never was a red dirt boy

There ain’t gonna be no sleep tonight Storm breaks the silence that you fight Girl you don’t owe them a thing Cause silence is the best calm a storm brings You feel everything crashing down on you Microscope dissects everything that you do Girl don’t tell them a thing Cause silence is the best calm a storm brings I know how it feels when a room shrinks down Thoughts crazed like acrobats, Jesters and circus clowns That seven colored spectrum we’re longing to see Come out come out our eyes are no longer cloudy Don’t tell them where you are Baby doll only you can help you Girl peaceful sleeping Cause silence is the best calm.

about

ROMANTICO was my 12th album. The original working concept for the album was a collection of songs dealing with the glee and glory of a new-found crush. My entire back catalog seemed to detail the fall-out and chaos of longing and heartbreak. I wanted to present an examination of the lighter side of bliss.

This original theme was derailed mid-project. My previous two releases chronicled my struggles with some dark and unhealthy behaviors. By the time 2002 rolled around my struggles had morphed into uncontrollable nightmares. If I didn’t change my life soon I knew I’d be dead one way or another.

During this album I began to attend a 12-step support group. Even though these meetings weren’t the most effective path towards my mental well being, they were an important baby step. In conjunction with making some positive lifestyle changes I began writing songs that really dug into the core of my psychology. So ROMANTICO ended up balancing some of my most carefree upbeat songs with some of my most mentally exploratory songs.
