about

Between 20017 and 2017, I released six CD's and dozens of singles. Now for the first time ever, I'm making that entire 10 year anthology available in one package.

Includes the albums: Hollow Bones In Monotone, Crazy Wind, Songbook Volume I, Of God & Man (Beneath the Sun), the Firelands EP and Last Bird Home.

PLUS bonus tracks, like: This House, If I'm Even Speaking At All, Sirens Never Sound, And Julia Walks, She Moves On and more. Also included: the original home recordings of Hollow Bones in it's entirety.

More than 70 tracks, written and recorded over the course of a decade. This "box set" will only be available online until December 31, 2017.

Track Name: Sirens Never Sound (Plantation EP 2017)
Mama's in the kitchen
mixing turpentine and oil
water's on the stove now
you can hear it as it boils

My eyes shift to the window
as the sky begins to hail
dogs howl in the distance
and a baby starts to wail

And there's storm over this town
but the sirens never sound

A man comes on the tv
selling ignorance and fear
friend, if you've got half a mind
then your money's no good here

They say ignorance is bliss
but it's big business, is what it is
the right hand feeds the reptiles
while the left hand keeps it hid

And the blood calls from the ground
but the sirens never sound

I heard a freight train rolling
heard it rumble past my door
couldn't help but wonder
where it might be rolling for

Maybe to Chicago
maybe Nashville, Tennessee
maybe double back again
bring that woman home to me

No telling where it's bound
the sirens never sound

Ezekiel saw visions
of a great bug spinning wheel
lit up like a carousel
in the middle of a field

Visions come and visions go
like lovers, friends and kings
my eyes are wide open
and man, I'm still seeing things

And that wheel's still spinning round
and the sirens never sound

Jesus was a carpenter
his short time in this life
his father was an architect
who never took a wife

Judas was a bullet
from the hand of union Jews
and Pilate a politician
with elections to lose

And a skill for weaving crowns
but the sirens never sound

Now the sheep is on the table
the lion's at the door
sister's on the front porch
dragging steak across the floor

Me, I'm gripping silver
and measuring the beams
thinking 'bout the girl
who brought me into this dream

And how I should be waking now...
