Just Be

Just a few things for dreams and fantasies


It’s Banned Books Week!I think I speak for all of us when I say that challenging or banning books just makes us want to read them more. Here’s what I’ve been reading this week so far on the subject of books and censorship:

Finished up some works in progress. I’d say this is our catchiest song so far…

Tell A Story lyrics -

Your eyes tell a story
Forewords, bywords
For words can’t stop when
Thoughts flash images
Framed not forgotten

Tell a story

Your eyes tell a story
An afterword left after words
Stopped wishing dreams were real
A wayward rhyme will always find
A way to make us feel

Tell a story

Your eyes tell a story
Lips smile, the heart flies
Words tell me to believe
Truth will always lie
Between our eyes

Another song we’ve been working on for a while, decided it didn’t need more work after all…called it Perfection.


A Truman show delusion
Real life display of conceit
Action, die for the camera
Making a living on grief

A perfect peaceful world
Myth or reality
A comic mask obverse tragedy (CHORUS)
A perfect peaceful world
Turned out to be
Dreams masquerading as memory

Can imperfection learn any lesson
From the depth of what we defend
A maze of time and legend
Swallowed by an effigy wind

In the blink of an eye we missed
Everything that time forgot to foretell
Holding on to memories
Painted soft pastel


A shower from the heavens
Reflecting all the years
The mind’s eye drowning
In a flood of Smiling Tears

Is there a place for peaceful anarchy
In a polluted atmosphere
Trapped by comfortable ignorance
Controlling things that we fear

Seconds evolve into centuries
Tick tock ticking away (BRIDGE)
Ideology not answers
In the dawn of golden days


Perfectly tired of searching for perfect
Perfection is all I can find
Perfectly happy being imperfect
A perfect description tonight

It’s been a while, but good things come to those who wait. Thanks for your patience. Latest song, Beautiful Storm, featuring J.D. Magbee on additional guitar.

Beautiful Storm Lyrics -

Contact feeds defeat
Swallowed by fate and your deceit
Tempted with visions, whispered aloud
Passed by chance and always let down

Listen too closely
Nothing makes a sound
Thorns piercing my mind (CHORUS-A)
Are all I’ve found
When trust in truth is torn
Blame it on a beautiful storm

Beautiful storm (repeated)

Pillars passing through my thoughts
Tortured by all of the ashes that we’ve tossed
Slipping through fingers so stained
Rules keep changing when you’re a game

Dreaming of bridges that I’ve crossed
To fall in delusion, flailing and lost
Holes in the scars still remain
Sun broken shards, shadows of pain


A perfect stillness thundering
The id of every promise that remains
Inspiration will sense the unbound
Decades woven in webs become unwound

Now we both listen to
The echoes of a home
Many hints at heaven (CHORUS-B)
That we’ll never own
The sky beckons us
Climb aboard this beautiful storm

Beautiful storm (repeated)

Writing implements.



They could be a littler more sonic.

seriously oh my gosh swore these were sonic screwdrivers.

who looks at a pen and thinks, ‘ooh, this could be a little more sonic?’

oh good i wasnt the only one who though they were sonic pens

Works on everything…except wood.

I’m pretty sure every whovian looked at these and thought they were sonic screwdrivers..
