All songs copyright © ToeKneeTracks – 2008-2011

 

These songs were all written after July, 2008. Special thanks to Ken Morris for inspiring me to actually write and record something after many years of being away from it. I really had no idea it would turn into this... The songs are mostly about people and relationships.

Besides having Ken to blame for getting me back on the horse, a big shout out to Lance Clements for his contributions to the songs and my sanity in a world gone mad.

These songs are all scratch demos with no polish or final touches, recorded in the office at home. Most of these are one-take recordings with an overlaid track or two. The demos are more sketches than anything else. Just enough musical detail to make the point.

New songs are noted in RED. Enjoy if you can. Feedback if you will.

BRAVE THE DAY Lyrics

 

Spooky Baby                          Spectators always loose the catch

Forty Nine                              Things they do look awful cold

Mean Old Lady                       If you want to be happy for the rest of your life...

Keep Me Anchored              The long hello goodbye

About You                          Close you eyes and wake up.   

Brave The Day                       ...and Music is her name

Saturday's Gone                    Hard to come by, easy to go.

Heaven Knows                  Who invented liquid soap and why?   

Just Walk On                    Something tells me it's all happening at the zoo.

Hollow Point                         And she don’t care

Drive Me Home                 Stuff can get to you...       

Low Down                              In memory of Doug Fieger     

 

 

FILE DOWN THE EDGES Lyrics

 

True                                         Never turn and burn

Wake Up Vickie                    digging a hole to bury reality

Letters From Bellevue          Funhouse mirrors never lie

She Just Disappeared           The ultimate game of hide and seek

Silently For Me                       Have a sound objective before you follow a strategy

Think Of Me                            Choose Wisely, or else...

Another Time                    Wonders never cease...

Crazy Driver                           Your wheels are tweaked…

Don't Mind Me Crazy            Extended Heat Exposure...

She Left Me                           Isn't it a pity?

Fool's Train                           enjoy the ride

Stranger                                   You just never know

 

 

UNAFFECTED Lyrics

Angels                                    * Written by TY and Allison Young

Hide From Love                    * Written by TY and Lance Clements

That Is Why                          When determination exceeds rational thought ;)

Love Is The Only Thing         * Written by TY and Lance Clements

Hollow Point                          And she don’t care

Keep Me Anchored                The long hello goodbye

Contrary Anne                       She’s a real maverick

Drive Now                               without a map or a GPS

Crazy Driver                           Your wheels are tweaked…

From Now On                         Have a nice trip!

 

RIGHT ABOUT NOW Lyrics

Let 'Em Hang Me                  Some are bad, he’s the worst

Fool's Train                           enjoy the ride

Emily’s Soirée                       Little Boy Blue is back

Wake Up Vickie                    digging a hole to bury reality

Cadillac Style                       To Christina from Chelsea ;)

Gone Gone Gone                  you always get what you pay for

Drop On By                            Drop down and get me

She Wants Him                    What to do, what to do...

So Long                                  Hello Goodbye

Laura's Gone                         Eli’s coming – hide your heart girl…

 

WINEPRESS HEART Lyrics

Lightning Strike                    Even the ones with everything have nothing

She Floated Away                never be kind to the cruel – for Jaycee

I Tried                                    If there is even a way back…

You Make Me Grieve             Frustrated – she’s gettin’ to ya

Big Splash                             Some things never change

That'd Be Fine                      It might be skin deep, but it’s pretty darn entrancing…

Where Did You Come From  Get up and get gone!

Just Watch Me Now              Breaking the cycle

Think It Through                  emotions count for nothing

Winepress Heart                  Just Crushed

 

RUN TO FAILURE Lyrics

Coming Down Fast               But I’m miles above you.

Take The South                    Please!

Going To Nashville              Words and music by Killer Ken Morris

On Rocky Top                       For Cathy, the mystery Benbow girl

Aimee                                     Pay the Buskers some attention, even if they don’t know you’re there...

That's For Sure                    What about it?

Again                                      Reality matters not when romance rules the mind

She Just Disappeared           The ultimate game of hide and seek

Break It Down                      When the obvious is not sufficient, seek the subtleties

Run To Failure                    Working for a better day
