I live in Japan. I used to live in Los Angeles. I like ramen and ice cream. I write music, check it out. I sound like Beethoven conducted by Beethoven the St. Bernard.

Track Name: Roll Like the Water
I roll like the water in the eye of the storm
Don't need any blankets to keep me warm
Collecting scalps with a hunter's knife
I've been bleeding the birds on a north cold night
Oh there's blood on the snow

I cut like the wind in a winter hail
I try not to sin to no avail
I'm an idiot fool with a burning torch
I've been hiding my secrets behind closed doors
There's no sense in this world

All these walls but you found the crack
Like a waterfall you ain't coming back
Like ice in rocks you broke right on through
Exposed a love that I never knew

I roll like the water in the eye of the storm
The hunger that haunts you when you can't keep warm
I'm a tenth of the weight resting on your back
Just a foolish mistake gone on the attack
So cut my neck til my head falls in your lap
Your lap

You were so good but you've taken a turn
You wanted the knowledge that you couldn't earn
So carry the weight of the guilt you own
The secrets they follow us from home to home

All these walls but you found the crack
Like a waterfall you ain't coming back
Like ice in rocks you broke right on through
Exposed a love that I never knew
Track Name: Rail Gun
Well I've run from my fears and I've sold all my souls
Now I'm going to find a home
I killed my subconscious and wiped away tears
Now I'm facing the field alone

I am running from screams in my head
I am counting the days til I'm dead
Put me back on the shelf
Cause I'm older than hell they said

As long as this heart keeps on pushing my blood
I'll burn sweat to keep you warm
As long as this skin is alive and living
My two minds will never be torn
Track Name: The Answer
Polka dots and striped pants
Staring at a mirror at the dance
Pen on the page blood in the veins
I'm gonna live in Norway

I'm holding out for the answer
Sitting by a window waiting for cancer
One twice three times a day
Everything you love will soon decay

What about an old house
Bedrooms waiting to be cleared out
Good and bad it's all the same
Can't feel love without the pain

Like the girls in the photographs
I'm trying to hold on to the past
Press your lips let down look away
I can't move my neck your smell locked down my brain

I want to take you silhouette
Hide it in the middle of a gold locket
Next to my heart under my clothes
Always remember you until I don't

I'm a seagull stuck in the sky
If the winds don't change I'm gonna die
A cold fall day in a parking lot
Watch a kid get an insulin shot

Let this day pass by
Let the girls into your life
Tear a page out of every book
You always let me off the hook

Hard as your heart is
Lost on the mountain in the autumn mist
Struggle to love easy to hate
I know I'm gonna be too late
