about

"East Rock" is a year long project for 2016 where I intend to write and record songs out of my house and neighborhood in New Haven. There will be a new song each month, and I will be playing every instrument on each song. "East Rock" is a play on words - I live in the East Rock section of New Haven, and the music is "rock" from the "east coast."

Track Name: Settle Down
LYRICS:

On a train ride
This box car takes forever
Another stop here in wherever
all these other people go
It was a good time
playing in The City
But something here within me
just can't wait to get on home

When you're on my mind
and I'm on the roam
I know I'll never be alone
You are the reason why I'm coming back around
You make me want to settle down

Hotel windows
and living from a suitcase
I like the folks in this place, sure do miss the ones back home
Miles of highways
or something more familiar
I don't remember what the words were but they always bring me home

When you're on my mind
and I'm on the roam
I know I'll never be alone
You are the reason why I'm coming back around
You make me want to settle down

Oh, just another hundred mile to the border line
then we got all this time
Oh, just another few more hours until the day

When you're on my mind
and I'm on the roam
I know I'll never be alone
You are the reason why I'm coming back around
You make me want to settle down
Track Name: The Real Ones
LYRICS:

You're caught up in a moment
when you realize everything that you wanted was a lie
after all this time
Walls and walls that fill your head,
circling around you spin
When the daylight comes there's a new way to begin

For all of the times that you tried

You can tell who the real ones are, they won't let you down
You can tell who the real ones are, they won't let you down

Let go of hesitation when the absolute of love is on your side
I swear that you'll be fine
And I know it's not that easy
And it damn well feels insane
when you have to start yourself over again

For all of the times that you tried

You can tell who the real ones are, they won't let you down
You can tell who the real ones are, they won't let you down

All you wanted was a life and love
and time to find the real ones on your side

For all of the times that you tried

You can tell who the real ones are, they won't let you down
You can tell who the real ones are, they won't let you down
You can tell who the real ones are, they won't let you down
You can tell who the real ones are, they won't let you down
Track Name: Whose America
LYRICS:

Rattle your sabers and shout your cursing words
When it doesn't cut your skin, then it doesn't really hurt
There is no compromise if it's outside your belief
You're so courageous when you take away from me

So whose America are you wanting it to be?
Whose America do you think that it should be?

Go ahead and build your wall to keep the brown ones out
Keep your institutions up to keep the black ones down
Jesus must be crying when we're helping out the gays
And those with different gods must be put back in their place

So whose America are you wanting it to be?
Whose America do you think that it should be?

White wash in your desperation
Coloring is infestation
When you take this obligation
to degrees of separation
Learn to love instead of hating
But you'll just continue waiting
for something that's never changing
Whose America is this?

As long as it's someone else, then there's no pain to be felt
Celebrate your victory that's another person's Hell
Don't you dare be reaching out to lend someone a hand
When it's just a bastard son from some foreign land

So whose America are you wanting it to be?
Whose America do you think that it should be?
