Televangelists, meet music

I wrote a song with lyrical assistance from a friend who currently wishes to be unnamed, so we’ll call her A. A had the idea for condemning Prosperity Preachers, and their effect on people who choose to follow. Hey, it’s a great message, based on the so-called “Law” of Attraction, which basically states that your thoughts attract good and bad to you. So the rich are rich because they think rich thoughts, but conversely children are kidnapped and worse because they think bad thoughts. See how that works? Not a very nice philosophy when you get down to it. It also appears that only the prosperity preachers actually attract any prosperity. I wonder if it has anything to do with people sending them “seed money”? Nah: I’m sure they put that money to good use propagating their god’s plan…which has everything to do with making the preacher wealthy. Hmmm.

So here is the Proof of Concept, version 2. Enjoy.

POC Prosperity Preacher, V2

Prosperity Preacher
Dear Mr Preacher won’t you tell me
I can’t take the shiz you sell me
Ten percent plus special favors won’t you help me
Hey Mr preacher how’s your pompadour
It’s gotten so big that you can’t get through the door
I had to sell my hair to charity
Just So I could pay for ramen and some tea
When will this all work for me
I’ve been sowing so many money seeds
I see you ave more than you will ever need
So please, please share that prosperity with me
I’m selling plasma, donatin’ blood
Get paid for trials of experimental drugs
I see you rollin’ in the new Mercedes Benz
I though perhaps you could share some of those endz
I sell my sperm to make a buck
My girl left me ’cause I’m too tired to function
All your bling and your custom tailored suits
Contrast nicely with my mix-matched goodwill boots
Now Mr Preacher where’re your taxes at
My bank roll’s thinnin’ while yours is getting fat, fat, fat
I bought that house on a three year V.A.R.
Now I’m living in a 30 year old car
Hey Buddy, can you spare anything
Perhaps some cash while prosperity is pending
I wrote a letter and what you said to do was keep on praying…and paying
Have a techno-babble show what needs a theme?

I’m thinking a cross between Airwolf, Tron (or that 1-season take-off), and/or Knight Rider.

It’s a little thing I did this morning messing about with SONAR X1.

A Show! New Songs Soon!

Picked up a gig at Taco garage in San Antonio, TX at 410 and Broadway from 6 to 8PM. Acoustic solo thing.

I have three new songs I’ve done the proof of concept recordings on. One is just plain  silly, but I’ve decided not to censor such inanities. Look for new songs- at least the POC’s- next week!

“Entangle Mental” now on iTunes!


Better (for me and for any artist) is to buy it from (see sidebar to the left)

You may still get the entire album FOR FREE as a single MP3 (no commitment, no signing up for a mailing list, no worries) here:

Entangle Mental, the entire CD

The Entire “Entangle Mental” CD in one fell swoop!

Here is the entire CD in a single download. It is slightly lesser quality than an MP3 you might get from iTunes, or make yourself, but certainly good enough for you to get the idea. All you have to do- should you want to- is cut it up. This can be done using Audacity which is a free audio program a relatively easy to use.

The link to get Entangle Mental is:

Entangle Mental, the entire CD

Right-click and Save As… as you see fit.

The CD has basically escaped as a high quality demo CD rather than the finished and near-perfect CD I envisioned. I hope you will enjoy it. It will be available in two weeks (30Oct2010) on iTunes, CD Baby, and Amazon, (among other places) for purchase and for live streaming. I hope you enjoy it enough to do so.

Words Have Weight

We just sit in these four walls
Regarding what to say
But nothing unsaid can chase these gray thoughts away
Sit here, let’s talk
Let’s sail the conversation sea
When next the sun comes shining upon our door
We’ll find we’re on a foreign shore

Words have weight that gravity doesn’t share
They drag and trip and hold
Words bring chains and locks and pain
When they’re fighting for control

We all want someone who’ll miss us when we’re away
We all want someone who will kiss all our fears away
We all want someone who’ll hold our hands and sigh
And promise us they won’t say goodbye

Words have weight that gravity cannot see
They move and soothe our souls
Words have wings that lift us to higher spaces
Leaving us to grow together
Through all that we weather
They take us through, me and you
Leaving us to be together
Me and you

We just sit and stare a while
Let the catalyst react
We both know there won’t soon be another act
Sit here, let’s talk
Let’s sail the conversation sea
When next the sun comes shining upon our door
We’ll see we’re on a foreign shore
Words have weight that science can’t quantify
They soothe, persuade, control
Words create and destroy upon circumstance
And warm and cheer our souls
