about

Here it is, my first solo release in 15 years - The Other Side. The "other side" can mean a lot of things - a different point of view, the end of an ordeal, the after life - and all those ideas can be found throughout this record.

Actually, many of these songs were recorded around the time of my last record An Axe To Grind. But I had a chance to refurbish and replace many of the original performances and they have found a brand new life. It's less about guitar hero and more about the song. But make no mistake, it's BIG! And I've thrown in a cover of John Lennon's "Gimme Some Truth" ta boot.

Track Name: Remember When
Remember When

Because there's no one else to hear
He only has himself to talk to
The only friends that still remain are memories
And they talk about the old days
Running faster than the Red Queen
Trying desperately to stay in the same place

And he's run that road before

And the fool has lost his way
Every line upon his face is a year he can't replace
And the dream has gone away
Though he can't go back again he can always think of then
Remember When

When he looks in to the mirror
He sees a man who is much younger
Than the man that everyone has left behind
And he prides himself in knowing
All the things that they forgot
He has not lived the life he's led in his own mind

But oh his road does wind

And the fool has lost his way
Every line upon his face is a year he can't replace
And the dream has gone away
Though he can't go back again he can always think of then
Remember When

Every step he makes it takes him two steps back
Turning circles in his tracks
Time is slipping through the cracks

The past is here to stay
Tomorrow's far away
When he lives in yesterday

And the fool has lost his way
Every line upon his face is a year he can't replace
And the dream has gone away
Though he can't go back again he can always think of then

And the fool has lost his way
Every line upon his face is a year he can't replace
And the dream has gone away
Though he can't go back again he can always think of then
Remember When
Track Name: Something About You
Something About You

Everyone knows where you come, when you go
'Cause there's something about you
All of your life it was so hard to hide
that certain something about you

Just when you think you've become an unknown
That you might be alone
There's a ring on the phone, 'cause
Everyone wants what you got, it's a lot
Yeah, it's something about you

Some folks would give the world
To be in your position
But they don't know your life
Can be just like a prison when you

Flash them your smile in your usual style
And they scream and they cry
But you're all dead inside 'cause
All that they see is who they want you to be
And they're nothing without you

There's no room for what you're doing
I'm just human

Don't understand why you look so sad
This could be the best time you ever had
Too bad this probably isn't going to last
Please can I have your autograph

They have a way to make you squirm when they say
That they see something about you
All you can do is hide away in your room
In the gloom they can smell your perfume 'cause
Their reason for life, besides the kids and the wife
Is owning something about you

Some folks would give the world
To be in your position
But they don't know your life
Can be just like a prison when you

Flash them your smile in your usual style
And they scream and they cry
But you're all dead inside 'cause
Everyone wants what you got, it's a lot
Yeah, it's something about you
Track Name: The Other Side
The Other Side

Rape me
But don't forget to thank me on your way out
Genius don't look one half as precious
On your way down

I'll play the part (just say the line)
I'll give you all of what is mine
I'm on the other side
I'm on the other side

Inside looking out for anyone
Who comes along
Reckless, an abandon state
For one who's come and gone

I'll cross the line (just watch your back)
I'm fending off threat of attack
I'm on the other side

I don't know what it feels like
To stand in your shoes
I only know that when I run
I look like you
A lot like you

Hate me
But not unless you're hungry and you need a friend
Genius doesn't burn it down
Until the bitter end

I'll make the call (just make the time)
Why can't I see, I must be blind
(We don't know you) I'm not myself
(Well better you than someone else)

If all I've made and have to show
Sounds like the truth at least I'll know
Then I'm on the the other side
Yeah, I'm on the other side
Track Name: Queen of Broken Hearts
Queen of Broken Hearts

Meet the Queen of Broken Hearts
She lives in a motorhome in my backyard
And she knows very well that she runs the show
With her scotch and her VCR
She’s the Queen of Broken Hearts

Says the Queen of Broken Hearts
I don’t need a bigger kingdom or a faster car
And maybe Prince Charming will come riding up
If I wish upon a star
She’s the Queen of Broken Hearts

Her subjects wage a revolution praying for the evolution
Of a mind full of confusion, yeah, oh yeah
Trapped inside the castle walls
Lock the door and maybe they’ll all go away
And she wants to say off with all their heads
But she can’t because she’d rather stay in bed
Maybe next time she’ll take it all too far
She’s the Queen of Broken Hearts

Tell the Queen of Broken Hearts
That we’ll meet at eleven on the boulevard
And then maybe she’ll show and then maybe not
But we won’t take it all that hard
She’s the Queen of Broken Hearts

Trapped inside the castle walls
Lock the door and maybe they’ll all go away
And she wants to say off with all their heads
But she can’t because she’d rather stay in bed
Maybe next time she’ll take it all too far
She’s the Queen of Broken Hearts
Track Name: Gimmie Some Truth
Gimmie Some Truth

I'm sick and tired of hearing things from
Uptight short sided narrow minded hypocritics
All I want is the truth, just give me some truth
I've had enough of reading things
By neurotic psychotic pigheaded politicians
All I want is the truth, just give me some truth
No short-haired, yellow-bellied
Son of tricky dicky's
Gonna mother hubbard soft soap me
With just a pocket full of hopes
Money for dope, money for rope
No short-haired, yellow-bellied,
Son of tricky dicky's
Gonna mother hubbard soft soap me
With just a pocket full of hopes
Money for dope, money for rope
I'm sick to death of seeing things from
Tight-lipped condescending mama's little chauvinists
All I want is the truth, just give me some truth
I've had enough of watching scenes from
Schizophrenic egocentric paranoiac primadonnas
All I want is the truth just give me some truth
No short-haired, yellow-bellied,
Son of tricky dicky's
Gonna mother hubbard soft soap me
With just a pocket full of hopes
It's money for dope, money for rope
I'm sick to death of hearing things from
Uptight short sided narrow minded hypocritics
All I want is the truth, just give me some truth
I've had enough of reading things
By neurotic psychotic pigheaded politicians
All I want is the truth, just give me some truth
