Somewhere in the United States, in Phoenix, Arizona, my good friend, Brian S., lives. Here is the result of our collaboration, at a time where things were not going well for the man who like the wood.

Parking lot
Final resting place 
Sounds comfortably warm to me
At a time like this
Warmth and comfort
Are a million miles from where we stand
Out in this parking lot
In your sweats and lookin’ bad
Final resting place
Sounds comfortably warm to me
My hope rides on fairy wings
My guitar and her favorite things
Clear skies family ties you can’t steal
Final resting place
Sounds comfortably warm to me
Those self storage places always make me smile
‘Cause it sounds like such a good idea
Maybe for just a little while
Final resting place
Sounds comfortably warm to me
But it ain’t that time of the month
And the one goin’ there ain’t me
Final resting place
Sounds comfortably warm to me
Till I wonder about that little girl
Out in the parking lot
where all I can do is just make sure she has a good place to run to
When she finally gets there
In your sweats and looking bad
Final resting place
Sounds comfortably warm to me
At a time like this
Warmth and comfort
Are a million miles from where we stand
Out in this parking lot

No trace
There’s times when 
I just have to stop 
And wonder 
There’s times when 
I don’t wanna figure it out 
There’s times when I do 
Only what I have to 
There’s times when I don’t do 
Anything at all
I want 
One and one half minutes 
To get what I need from you 
One and one half minutes 
Gonna walk around in your shoes 
One and a half minutes 
Gonna slow down the hands of time 
One and a half minutes to 
To read between your lines
There’s times when 
I only want to slow myself down 
There’s times when 
It makes no sense to me
There’s times when 
I fall right down on my knees 
There’s time when 
I only wanna stop the casualties
One and one half minutes 
To get what I need from you 
One and one half minutes

Seeds
I watch you struggle
To breathe again
Try all you want to
You know it?s in vain
You can never hope
Even though it?s your need
To get out of there
So ripens the seeds
So ripens the seeds
Never get out
From within
Never get out
Of your sickening skin
Never get out
From within
It s been a long time
Since you just stopped by
Had some thing to eat with us
Sat and passed some time
I watch you struggle
To breathe again
Try all you want to
To just breathe in
Never get out
From within
Never get out
Of your sickening skin
Sickening skin
Unlike for me
Where I fly off into the sky and be free
I feel light as air
Cause I can t see you anywhere
Except when I watch you struggle
To breathe again
Try all you want to
Cause we know it s in vain
You can never hope
Even though it s your need
To get out of there
So ripens the seeds
So ripens the seeds
Never get out
From within

Listen Don't Talk
Close your eyes
Close em for me
Spend a little time in there
Tell me later
What did you see
The feelings you had
The good with the bad
Night time is all that night time needs
To put you back where it wants you to be
Words you pick
People that you got to know
Some good for you
Some kinda sick as I found you to be
Close your mouth
Close it don’t you speak to me
Spend a little time like that
Listen but don’t talk
For now just don’t talk to me
Words that you’ll pick
Tell me more than you will want to
Your kinda crap and how you gave it to me
Close yourself in
Close up don’t be open anymore
Spend a little of your day in there
Don’t look out, you’ve never done that before
Tell me sometime about it
But not now because you’re not ready
The feelings you had
The good with the bad
Night time is all that night time needs
To put you back where it wants you to be
Words you pick
Moves you made
Silence where once was speaking loud

Niki
Tuesday noony
Quiet and groovy
Cool clear weather
Niki stops by
Slidy slidy
Neat and tidy
She said before love
I think it’s nice to hug
You’re soft and your nice
Never ever bite me
She rock me rock me
Never lonely
Nothing broken
Warm and toasty
Almost golden
Light and open
Bass man shakes me
Plays nice and nasty
Tempers soft
Never ever angry
That’s since I left the
Messed up and the twisty
We go nitely gently
Rock me baby
Pillow comfy
Come and snug me
Don’t wake me too damn soon
I’ll cook for you
‘Cause you’re always hungry
Lighten up inside
Rest a little longer
Daylight whispers
My heart don’t wanna resume
Too late for me
Sun peekin’ through
Pillow comfy
Come and snug me
Don’t wake me too damn soon
Niki don’t wake me too damn soon

Lonsdaleite
I show them where I live
It’s not like there’s any secrets
If one wants in one just has to look at me
They can just come right on in
I like leavin’ my door open
Been my weakness and my attraction
Lights often on
If not, it’s only my inattention
I think you got the message now
Gotta get skeeter to act like my ideal
For the girl now or never
Ziggy Marley says
Keep looking ever forward
To that one bright day
Love can be, I seen it before
But now girls are hard
But I like it that way
Easy she come and easy she go
One dark day easy she did you know
And now girls are hard
And I like it that way
I guess

Luther King
Luther King and
Merlins ring
all it means
is we learn to stand alone
I want
three cheers for the
downtown girls
the most important
in the world
You see
fathers sons and
holy smokes
loulous shopping for
cowboy pokes
they got
pointy toes and
alligator
lifted lorax and
Schwarzenegger
I want
three cheers for the
downtown weather
worlds apart
from my life as a feather
if you close your eyes well you can see
if you close your eyes well you can see
they got
colors flowing from the
nineteenth floor
as daddy walks me
to my door
And I don't really understand
I don't really understand
what I?m trying to say
I got my
hands on my heart and
I don't mean to intrude
it's just those uptown sisters
they put me in the mood
give three cheers for the
civic pride
feel 'em as they
pass softly by
shooting glances
and ripped off lines
little by little
it's just their broken lives
that's why
when they come by
I just swing the door
Wide
I want
three cheers for the
downtown girls
the most important
in the world
You see
fathers sons and
holy smokes
loulou's shopping for
cowboy pokes
They got
pointy toes and
alligator
lifted lorax and
Schwarzenegger
I want
three cheers for the
downtown weather
worlds apart
from my life as a feather
if you close your eyes well you can see
if you close your eyes you will see

Pinhole system
Can’t understand
Just where I am
How can so much good
Bring pain again
So sorry, and I
Should be
Can’t understand
Why I am, like I am today
Damned strange
And unusual
In my shoes
Makes me feel
Like it must feel
To be in hers
Like I’m
Not connected
To the same kind of system
My family and friends
Don’t understand
Live my horror
Then we’ll talk again
Maybe simply
Shut my mouth
Like a thousand days gone by
Some days I cave in
Next day morning comes
Do it again
Breathe through a pinhole
Still you wonder
Why I fear

How
So I saw
Thin veils over sticky traps
I think too much
How about you
So I said
Bean curd please family style
Eating tootsies by the pound
Couldnt make her smile
Not a word not a sound
So I thought
If Im good thisll be gone
I think too much
How about you
So I read
Night brings nightmares Mrs. T
Can go deeper still
Hobbies needed said the sign
I know Ill wreck his life thought Jill
So I said
I saw the peace being broken apart
Life driven backseat bound
Graffiti boxer two cent bill
Never been and always will
So I bled
Sharp blades razors teeth
I think too much
How about you
So I felt
Awful joyful panicked and blessed
Truman under glass
Working harder working farther
While Mama shakes her ass
So I learned
Clearing hearing moving back
Stop when you hear me crack
Popeye spinach ten cent cigar
Young man driving a fancy car
So I paused
Mandibles closing tight
Skeeter in jello
Ladies and gents I just stopped in
To say hello
Out of here he said
As the curtain fell
And the the light did fade
Too Too much
How about you
