You were so dorky 'til your haircut You had the nerve to ask me How long I wanted you Must suck to be so dull sober You smelled so bad I had to breathe out of the side of my mouth And every time that you look at me Hope you don't think I want you Of course I didn't love you Had an hour with nothing to do (It's an easy way to separate Pain is all I knew - I was drowning) Am I magically transparent? Or you feeling guilty Cause I heard you cum over the phone? Do you think I should know better cause I'm older? I didn't I'm mixed up, confused The user just got used... Acknowledge me And every time that you look at me Hope you don't think I want you Of course I didn't love you Had an hour with nothing to do I'm only writing this letter to redeem myself Of course you didn't love me Had an hour with nothing to do So boy queen go ahead and take your stage You can have it- been there done that Clowns who spend an hour to cover the face I think your lifestyle is stupid I'm gonna get my kicks from dirty pix Why do you think my mouse pad sticks? People can't handle sex in the year 2004


THE ORANGE SONGS was my 13th album and it was a complete fluke. In early 2004 I was in the studio laying down the early tracks for the album that would turn out to be NOW’S THE RIGHT TIME TO FEEL GOOD. In tandem with these sessions I was finishing up my Associates Degree in college and attending some very intense therapy sessions with the wonderful Linda Peterman.

My absolute favorite class in school was “Psychology of Personal Growth” taught by the effervescent Norma Caltagirone. In lieu of a final exam, the class culimnated with a final creative project. We were asked to create a poem, or a collage, or a short story. My original plan was to turn in one of the NOW’S THE RIGHT TIME songs.

Sitting on my bed one sunny afternoon I hit a chord on the acoustic guitar that resonated inside of me. I knew at that moment I had to write a brand new song for Miss Caltagirone’s class. Over the next few days that one song turned into two, which turned into three, then four. And by the end of that week I had written an entire new album.

I halted production of NOW’S THE RIGHT TIME TO FEEL GOOD much to the chagrin of my creative team. But these 14 new acoustic songs called for immediate release.

The tracks on THE ORANGE SONGS found me candid and open. Due to the therapy sessions and psychology classes I was made to confront, battle, and understand the “demons” that had been gnawing at me for quite some time. This album is a riveting replica of the painful and honest journey I took while healing my inner-self.
