about

The Floating Wilderness is the bubble each of us exists in as we pass one another in a crowd.

All of us are technically on the same plane, yet we can’t connect because we’re trapped in this sphere.

We're trapped in a Floating Wilderness.

The bruises sting, I’m bleeding
babe, why can’t you see
the blood is on my face, and I’m in agony
I don’t know why you’re angry, but I’m so sorry
you realize you’re wrong and I’m a bit relieved

Au claire de lune, are you having fun?
Au claire de lune, are you on the run?
Au claire de lune, i’ll be leavin’ soon
Au claire de lune.

This desert’s awfully breezy and the dune’s stretch miles
standing in oasis is an only child
her clothes are old and ragged but her nails are filed
her skin it rots and withers but her hair is styled

Claire de lune, are you having fun?
Au claire de lune, are you on the run?
Au claire de lune, i’ll be leavin’ soon
Au claire de lune.

You roll in like a cyclone tearing up the land
the sky is filled with dust a city choked by sand
my hand extends to touch you but you break the plan
Though my lungs they burn the inquisition stands

Au claire de lune, are you having fun?
Au claire de lune, are you on the run?
Au claire de lune, i’ll be leavin’ soon
Au claire de lune.

Everything you said to me was incomplete
My mind’s made up, I’m gonna leave

Au claire de lune, are you having fun?
Au claire de lune, are you on the run?
Au claire de lune, i’ll be leavin’ soon
Au claire de lune.

Track Name: The Ballad of Crotchety Powns
it began many years ago
a man named crotchety powns
all he wanted was to put on a show

now he’s left alone
he’s lost his planet home
crotchety got nowhere left to go

he pushes into space
but memories always stay
his old planet has just been destroyed

spies a little ball
floating in abyssal maw
the planet earth is lookin’ mighty fine

crotchety powns
he lives all alone
a drifting in space
needs to find a new home

crashes through the atmosphere
the sky’s so very clear
the clouds are white and the water’s blue

hits the frozen ground
in a small northwestern town
crotchety doesn’t know what to do

crotchety powns
he lives all alone
crashed down to earth
still needs to find a new home

he walks into town
the place is quite rundown
he spies a small saloon and proceeds to enter

a woman there
blue eyes and golden hair
asks crotchety to sit front and center

crotchety powns
may have found a new home
with the girl of dreams
then his mind starts to roam

oh poor crotchety
stuck living life as different
he’ll never be the same as any human race

and Crotchety Powns
will forever be alone
even if he finds a place to call his own

he boards his ship once more
and sets his target for
the gaping void
that is outer space

on his own again
never made a single friend
and he’ll never realize why that it is

crotchety powns
he lives all alone
back drifting in space
he needs to find a new home
Track Name: Run Away
Today I sail a freighter ship
just my thoughts and me
it’s peaceful to be drifting here
but I get so lonely

I spy a girl out on the pier
she’s looking kind of lost
I stare her strongly in the eyes
and give it my best shot

she tells me
she’s a wanderer
adrift without a home

well if you wanna stay with me
we’ll never be alone I say

come on, hurry run away with me
we can sail to a place where
no one has been
just us, out on the sea
oh baby won’t you
run away with me.

No she coyly nods to me
a teased look in her eye
you really can’t be serious
now can we say goodbye I said

come on, hurry run away with me
we can sail to a place where
no one has been
just us, out on the sea
oh baby won’t you
run away with me.

And if you decline this invitation
I’ll take my time and find a better replacement
But if you follow, I promise it will be
A trip you won’t forget, now baby run with me

I take her hand and hold her close
We voyage out to the sea
The water’s large in breadth and scope
My girl is finally free I said

come on, hurry run away with me
we can sail to a place where
no one has been
just us, out on the sea
oh baby won’t you
run away with me.

Our loneliness has ceased.
Track Name: Hot Air Balloon (Ragtime Gal)
We are standing in a sunny field
baby you know how i feel
this closeness is uncountably real
me and my ragtime gal

lounging on the side of the moon
honey maybe it’s too soon
when i’m with you I feel like it’s June
me and my rag time g

i wanna fly on a hot air balloon
a hot air balloon with you
i wanna fly on a hot air balloon
a hot air balloon with you

hold me close dear
tell me what to do
all i want is to be with you
and i know that you feel it too
me and my rag time gal

i wanna fly on a hot air balloon
a hot air balloon with you
i wanna fly on a hot air balloon
a hot air balloon with you

gaze in my eyes babe
tell me what you see
it should be just you and me
siI found you I am finally free
me and my ragtime gal

take my hand girl
and walk with me
we can stroll down by the edge of the sea
near the water eternally
me and my

i wanna fly on a hot air balloon
a hot air balloon with you
i wanna fly on a hot air balloon
a hot air balloon with you

we could go sailing in the deep blue sea
mumbling incomprehensibly
holdin hands and
shootin the breeze
me and my ragtime gal

one thing left to say
no one else makes me feel this way
when you’re with me i have no need to pray
me and my rag time gal

i wanna fly on a hot air balloon
a hot air balloon with you
Track Name: Raise Yourself
No one can tell you what store to shop in
but advertisers sure try

I know it seems like you’re being controlled baby
but control is just a lie

you can raise yourself, however you want to baby
throw your hands to the sky
you can raise yourself however you need to honey
and it’s just part of life

Our relationship is taxing on on us
that doesn’t mean you should cry
your tears won’t make me feel pity o
won’t you let your eyes dry

you can raise yourself, however you want to baby
throw your hands to the sky
you can raise yourself however you need to honey
and it’s just part of life

once you leave the nest you’re out on your own
no one can dictate what you do
a brand new life is waiting for you

I just want to tell you how much I love you
I never wanna let you go
but if you wanna leave me honey
who am I to tell you no?

you can raise yourself, however you want to baby
throw your hands to the sky
you can raise yourself however you need to honey
and it’s just part of life

You’re your own parent now.
Track Name: Floating Wilderness
In a crowd
they talk so loud
but you can’t join
no you feel trapped out there

A girl strolls down the side of the corridor
her eyes glow bright green in the darkness
her skin is pale
she looks like an angel
be mine

talk to me and you will see
I’m not a creep
though I’m not like the others

the girl glances my way
and raises her hand
I prepare to speak
her friend waves back from right behind me
again

we’ll never meet
out on the street
the social norms will not bring us together

talk to me
and you will see
the walls put up
are an insane illusion

we can break free
say hi to me
before you leave
and you’re gone forever

Help me escape from this floating wilderness
Track Name: Reminded Of You
Your eyes glow like diamonds
and your body is the rain
since the day you left here
your name’s played in my brain

I walk into the kitchen
hoping to make some eggs
my mind’s overloaded
I go to lay down instead

every time I see your door
I’m reminded of you
Why is it you didn’t stay
and will we ever renew?

I drink and ounce of yager
trying to feel all right
maybe if I down this bottle
I can finally get through the night

every time I see your door
I’m reminded of you
Why is it you didn’t stay
and will we ever renew?

well my bed’s messed up
and my mind is fried
if you treat me right
I might not die inside hooo

every time I see your door
I’m reminded of you
Why is it you didn’t stay
and will we ever renew?

and will you say “I do?”
Track Name: I Wanna Party
Sittin at home bored as can be
I Hear some loud music playin’ in the street
I Wanna see what’s goin’ on and meet new friends
I walk outside and I feel like partying

Patron and Grey Goose with a handle of gin
Playin’ beer pong let the good times begin
I wonder if they know what we’re partying for
As if it really matters while you’re falling to the floor

homework’s well and good but when the week gets through
come on over babe I wanna celebrate with you

It’s the weekend, I wanna party
It’s the weekend, I wanna party
It’s the weekend, I wanna party
It’s the weekend, I wanna party

Girls all dance around while the music plays
I drink a couple more and I’m feelin’ pretty dazed
the room it starts to spin but I’m standing fine
I see you in the crowd and your body’s so divine

homework’s well and good but when the week gets through
come on over babe I wanna celebrate with you

It’s the weekend, I wanna party
I'm alright now, let's get it started
It’s the weekend, I wanna party
I'm on cloud nine, let's get it started

Hey, it’s party time, everyone I know is enjoying their night
and If, you treat me right, we’ll be going home

Now we’re Ten shots in, I’m feelin’ fine
Put your lips right next to mine
if you keep on playin’ and doing what you do
girl after tonight I’m getting married to you

<intro>

Back at the dorms hangin’ with my friends
Wondering if you’re comin’ back again
I feel the same urge come over me
I grab some beers and take to the street

the party’s just begun and you know what to do
come on over babe I wanna celebrate with you

It’s the weekend, I wanna party
It’s the weekend, I wanna party
It’s the weekend, I wanna party
It’s the weekend, I wanna party

Now

Track Name: Life
Back in kindergarten life was good
all my friends were there
playin’ in the sandbox
with little toy cars
we lived without a care

Friends they come and go
and women come and go and
life is going by too fast

and time is ticking on
and I’ll be dead before too long
and why don’t the good times last?

now I’m grown and relationships stall
I’ve had my share of scars
it’s all too much for me sometimes
It stretches back too far

Friends they come and go
and women come and go and
life is going by too fast

and time is ticking on
and I’ll be dead before too long
and why don’t the good times last?

I want to reverse time
and relive every day
of coloring books and crayons
and chillin in third grade

I know people are good
but my back’s to the fence
Why’s life so hard to figure out?
When will it all make sense?

I know I’ll find someone for that I have no doubt
a girl to love me close while I search for a way out

Now we’re sittin’ in your bedroom
and I feel you tumor grow

friends they come and go
and women come and go and
life is going by too fast

and time is ticking on
and I’ll be dead before too long
and why don’t the good times last?

friends they come and go
and women come and go and
life is going by too fast

and time is ticking on
and I’ll be dead before too long
and why don’t the good times last?

friends they come and go
and women come and go and
life is going by too fast
Track Name: Goodbye
Goodbye goodbye

until i make the sequel
goodbye
