Transcendental Medication

You try it first
It satisfies your thirst
Then it turns on you
Becomes something worse

That jar of pills
Gives you such a thrill
Then it turns on you
And goes against your will

You like to smoke
Until you choke
Then it turns against you
You lose all hope


Transcendental Medication
Fixes you right up
Pour this magic elixir
Into your sippy cup

I have been having so much fun getting back into lead guitar that while I’ve written lyrics to several songs, I decided to go all instrumental. That might continue for a while.

I Was Born For The Stage

I might finally be over my fear of singing and thinking my voice is awful.

Here’s the funny back story of that last song. Michael Stipe, one of a handful of my favorite rock singers, used to love to do a bad Elvis impression. I thought, “What if I tried a Michael Stipe impression of him singing Elvis Style.

My wife and a few others said, no joke, it’s not terrible singing. I really do want to sing I’ve been deathly afraid of it …..

I was born for the stage
I was born to sing
Countless fans adore me
For my uncertain gift

My heart is on fire
I'm alight with desire
To paint the town red
Everyone is my friend

My adoring fans
Call me Saint
Its my singing
And the sounds that I paint


I highly recommend Googling old cure all or old medical cures. One of my favorites is “Asthma Cigarettes”.

Something nice
For you and me
Stay fit and slim
Just wait and see

They wouldn't print it
If it wasn't true
Picks you up
When you're feeling blue

It seems so quaint
Mother's little helper
Buy two bottles
Put it on your kitchen shelf
