• More Than A Memory: a song about death and remembrance, and the power of love to reach out from beyond the grave.

• Stuck In The Middle of Why: this song might be about contemplating suicide, or dealing with a terminal illness. Pick your poison!

• Worthless Kind: this song is a rebuke of shallow fair weather friends and materialistic people in general, with a positive message of transcendence through adversity, ridicule, and indifference.

The lyrical aspect of this song concerns the newly disincorporated spirit of a birth mother who makes contact with the son she abandoned as a new born infant at the hospital many years earlier.

about

wrenchBiscuit Miami, Florida

"Being born is the most severe form of suicide. Not ending in a moment. But one moment ending for a lifetime".

Considering our mortality, it is a shame that many talented people are stifled by peer pressure, censorship,and their own fear of flying. Since we have all paid the price of admission to the material world, I hardly think that I am going to worry too much about fashion.

Track Name: Broken Down Restaurant
Seems I never got the joke
I guess it went right over my head
In a BROKEN DOWN RESTAURANT
Playing for drinks and tips
And a hundred and fifty that we could split
Now I'm here where the Buskers meet
Tapping out a rhythm on this dirtry street

Kings and Queens they rise and fall
But don't we all?
And it seems like a dream
When we get to the end of it
If you love it

And you can't look back
'cause you know you're gonna crash
but you do it anyway
and you do it everyday
'Cause a broken heart can't be forgotten
When it 's beating in your chest
And it weighs on your mind
All the the things you could have done
Should have done
But now you're running out of time

When you look at the faces
You fake another smile
And they put another dollar in the hat
But they're going somewhere
You watch 'em leave
But tomorrow you'll be right where you're at

You had a dream
Everybody does
But you made a mistake
And another one
And another one
On a sunny day
You can hear 'em say
He's a real good singer

But you're singin in the rain
'Cause you're lost in a song
And you can't believe how it all went wrong
And you're feeling the strain
When you're reaching for a high note
headin' for an all time low

The crowd gathers around
'Cause they like the sound
The tourists and the debutante's
They all say Hey man can you play thay song
The BROKEN DOWN RESTAURANT
Track Name: Coke Enemy
They found him in the street
In Portland Oregon
Put him in a paupers grave
John Doe is all it said

He was a falling star
He played a bass guitar
Combed his hair with an Afro Pick
And sang Sweet Emotion

Co Co Co Co Coke Enemy
Co Co Co Co Coke Enemy
Co Co Cocaine
Brings The Rain

Co Co Co Co Coke Enemy
Co Co Co Co Coke Enemy
Co Co Cocaine
Brings The Rain

We used to get so high
In the schoolyard parking lot
Teacher said "Whats wrong with your eyes?"
And we laughed about it

But he could not break away
As the years went passing by
The cocaine and the alcohol
He could not live without it

Co Co Co Co Coke Enemy
Co Co Co Co Coke Enemy
Co Co Cocaine
Brings The Rain

Co Co Co Co Coke Enemy
Co Co Co Co Coke Enemy

When we were little boys
We had two roan ponies
We road them through the fields
Bareback
Painted like warriors

We fought against all odds
The whole damn Union Army
Always came to put us down
But the ending was glorious

Now I stand upon a stage ...
The dealers come and go
I read them to the letter

I seem them everywhere
And I pretend I just don't care
But when I get cloudy
I just blame it on the weather

Track Name: Lost At St. Mary's
What Can You Do With A Broken Wheel?
How far do you think you can ride?
They say that she's gone
But I've tried for so long to believe
She's somewhere living in this whole wide world
And ...

Nothing's gonna keep us apart
Nothing's gonna keep us apart
Saying I'm not good enough
Ill-timed and illegitimate
Nothing's gonna keep us apart

What Can You Do With A Broken Wheel?
How easy is it gonna roll?
For how many miles can you fake all the smiles
You'll get old
Just dreaming of a face that looks like home
And ...

Nothing's gonna keep us apart
Nothing's gonna keep us apart
Nothing's gonna keep us apart
Track Name: More Than A Memory
I've Still Got You
And I'll never forget it
I may get the blues
From time to time
But I'll never regret it
I've Still Got You

And it's more than a memory
I can feel you standing here with me
When I was falling down
You were breaking the fall
When I got caught in the rain
You made sense of it all

Now every back is turned
I'm standing beat up bruised and burned
With all hope retreating
Your love keeps repeating

I've Still Got You
I've Still Got You
I've Still Got You

I never wanted to be rich
A big white house with a big white picket fence
A big black limosine
On the cover of a magazine
Where does a rich man go when all the money's spent?

But I'm better than that
I've got something bigger
And it's more than a memory
I can feel you standing here with me
When I put the flowers there
And roll away the stone
I know love is real
And I'm never alone

I've Still Got You
I've Still Got You
I've Still Got You

Reach my hand
Across space and time
Heal the wound of remembering
The image of your design
Tell the Reaper
Help me on my way
When the great whore spits me out
Won't you come and catch me once again

I've Still Got You

When I put the flowers there
And roll away the stone
I know love is real
And I'm never alone

I've Still Got You
I've Still Got You
I've Still Got You
Track Name: Stuck In The Middle of Why
The world is changin'
All around
And what goes up
It burns like a candle
That flickers out of time
And so far behind

I feel too much
It's a love so strong
And it takes me down
To these places I ramble
But there's no exit sign
I keep looking for answers
But all that I find

I'll never die young
I'll never grow old
I won't be that lucky guy
I'm just living proof
Of a man in the middle of
Struck In The Middle of ... Why?

I hear the clock
But I don't believe
When the sun comes up
I get lost and I'm blinded
But it won't cast a shadow
On a world that I've seen
And it's all evergreen

I'll never die young
I'll never grow old
I won't be that lucky guy
I'm just living proof
Of a man in the middle of
Struck In The Middle of ... Why?

I'll never die young
I'll never grow old
I won't be that lucky guy
I'm just living proof

Caught in the riddle of
Time and the passing years
Why am I standing here
Stuck in the middle of Why
Track Name: Worthless Kind
You are a worthless kind
Worthless... but useful
You are a worthless kind
Worthless... but useful

Mediocrity comes in greater numbers
It's indefensible
You are dispensable

There was a king who dressed in shabby clothes
With his hand out on the street
You walked by; shook your head and that was that
There was a king who stood up on a stage
Playing on the strings of a broken heart;
Was that you laughing behind his back?

You are a worthless kind
Worthless... but useful
You are a worthless kind
Worthless... but useful

For the cream to rise to the top
There is a medium that carries
The mighty oak to reaches up to the sky
From the seed that was buried

Let them be separated
Let them be separated

Cover Me
With your selfishness and greed
Cover Me
With your bloody violence
Cover Me
With hopelessness and fear
Cover Me
With every stain of every wasted life

You are a worthless kind
Worthless... but useful
Track Name: You'll Never Break My Heart
Here you come to say hello
Oh so many years ago
You said goodbye when I
Could not speak the language

After our relationship
Of just 9 months you disappeared
A missing person you became
Now you're a ghost
It's all the same to me

Guess who won't be missing you
And love someone they never knew?
You had your chance looks like you blew it
When you were alive
