about

0011 is the third album I've done DIY style. I worked on it in my spare time during my last 2 years at Western Michigan University. However, unlike other albums, this album was (almost) entirely written, performed, recorded, produced, and promoted by myself, with only an exception to my good buddy Mike Fish, who has helped with the drums on one tune. This album also features more instrumentation and less production-based experimentation than my previous albums.

"0011" contains songs written before, during, and after my musical instruction and has a diverse range of influences, feelings, and styles.

Physical copies and download cards coming soon.

Track Name: Don't Tell Me
Don't tell me

Don't tell me
what to say
It's up to me
who I am
and who I'll be

Don't tell me
who I am
or I should be
Don't tell me
what I am
or I should be

Don't tell me
what they said
on your TV
who I am
is who I'll be

Don't tell me
who I am
or I should be
Don't tell me
what I am
or I should be
Track Name: Kalamazoo
I found love on Prospect Hill
On the steps is where I found you
The streets and lights and cars
While my sights were upon you

Kalamazoo
play this song through
maybe you'll see
what you really mean to me
The basement sessions
the half time cannons
The place I fell in love in and
the place where I became me
this is the place where I became me.

In this city
I feel giddy
While the melody
plays my tune

In this place
I erase
all my fears
and my dreams came true

Kalamazoo
play this song through
maybe you'll hear
what makes you so dear
the western campus
the boring classes
The place I met the greatest
people in history and chemistry
this is the place where I became me.
Track Name: Find
Sometimes you find yourself again.
Then you look at all of your old friends.
Where did you ever fit within?
Haven't been the same since back then.

Someday you'll find
You're too gullible inside
Train your mind to trick yourself
Into being something else

You know you've done it
Now open your eyes
It take a minute to realize:

Life is amazing.
Go find the beauty inside
Look at the people in your life
Go and find those people
That you like
That you love
Let them know.

When that is what you find.
The little things in life, that get you down
Talk to them with open hearts, don't be afraid.
They'll make you feel better.
Track Name: Your Savior
I don't think I can forgive your savior
For what he's shown to me
We're clawed with acing scars and
these wounds that don't wash out easily.

We've washed our hands with his water,
Sent our friends to fight and patrol,
Built their temples for their reasons,
willingly giving them control.

Now watch their ways persuade you,
they'll take take control and crash.
I can tell you lover,
His love can never last.

From looking to the future
and looking upon the past
Our hope is slowly fading
I'm convinced we'll never last.

They'll take from us until we can't give back
and they'll keep us from what we can never have.
They'll tell us that he loves us
but hold us tight within their grasp.

Now, be quiet, there's something to be learned,
Now, be silent, there's something to be heard.
Now, be reverent, or you'll "be the one burned",

Wash off these hands with his purest of waters,
Regenerate your soul with his words,
Build his nations upon his foundations,
In his name, you'll finance wars.

Now I'm not here to sway you,
Nor do I disclaim your savior.
But I can tell you stranger,
Actions speak louder than words.

Now, be quiet, there's something to be heard,
Actions speak louder than words.

I can tell you lover,
His love can never last.
I'm convinced we'll never last.
Track Name: Fake It
It's people like that
who wonder the earth
doing what stupid people do
acting like a queen
following a certain scene
to be entertained beyond T.V.

I don't get why we tend to hate
instead of showing love
I don't get why we told to fake
our smiles and our hugs
I don't understand why
we fake it all the time
we're just faking our insides
we're just faking out insides

I don't get why we tend to hate
instead of showing love
I don't get why we told to fake
our smiles and our love
I don't understand why
we fake it all the time
we're just faking our insides
we're just faking out insides

I don't get why we tend to hate
instead of showing love
I don't get why we told to fake
our smiles and our hugs
surround yourself with love
and throw away the hate
there's so much here to love
don't hesitate.

There's too much fuss
but not enough love

There's too much fate
and not enough love

There's too much hate
but not enough love
