everybody start at nothing
count to zero
turn around and you've found your Down Hero
fly like an eagle eye cherry bomb blast
survey the damage from the shrapnel cast
in your general direction
splatter with patterns
beautiful 'til it puts out your lantern
slipping into darkness often
nothing can soften the blow until you let go
that's when you lost
that's how you find your way
when buried in remains of the day
phoenix arisen formed from clay pigeons
keep sharp vision when shots are a given
will you be landing or staying immune?
lower the boom like Gorilla Monsoon
getting in tune with the straight and narrow
eye on the sparrow
blazing arrow

polyphonic schizophrenic satellite feeds
harmonic resonance wrapped epidemic
Bad Lieutenant getting academic
amnesiac on track to forget it
acting as if it can't happen
pilot a ship in need of a captain type
misunderstood like Endless Mike
wealth of info thrown out the window
words fell
being anywhere in the vicinity nominates one to catch hell
shell shock victims tell a story
of passing glory obligatory
bore me to death with details if you don't mind
maybe i can feel outshined
as I bask in the glow of a Black Hole Sun
won't you come?
walk don't run
not the orchestrator of chaos
looking for connection like I'm running a seance
Sole Glow Collective
known to go with objective views
use it to make music
infuse life in the rhythm
open up the window and let me breathe
TB Sheets on the beats
Van Morisson to vanglorious
it's The Notorious CAT2D
speaks freely
LP to CD to MP3
ESP will be my next format
more than likely I'll be known for that long after I'm gone
though I might be wrong
Phantom of the Paradise
like all I need is one love to sing my song
a surrogate serenade
played out cinematic

Haley's Comet opposite
a constant
mathematically sound
and Unbound Project at work
ignore endgame
invest interest if you're not insane
wild for the night 'til it's broad daylight
in plain sight I take flight
Black Dynamite on the mic vs. Can't Get Right
won and the fight hasn't even begun yet
that's how I drop that Sun Tzu on you
real life right now
with no run through
Opening Night and I'm slightly unbalanced
John Cassavetes but a bit more callous
talent is a vampire
so passion runs this machine
i stand firmly between these extremes
dream fever
light sleeper
Trapper John if I'm a keeper

A wordsmith with the heart of a poet and the head of a broadcast journalist. A DJ who is not afraid to venture outside of the norm. A producer with a different vocabulary of influences, and no fear whatsoever about embracing them. An artist searching for the link between the palette and the pixel. ... more
