band practice like what.

...i think i forgot everything!

if i were some zany police cheif and michael was this cop on the beat that was a good crime-solver, but always getting into trouble, and we were in a sitcom, at the end of each episode, the camera would fade out either on the police hq building or on the door of my office (which would be closed) and you'd hear my voice yelling "MCADAMS!!!" ...'cause he accidentally crushed my car or something.

billy would be the street-wise undercover guy who isn't in all of the episodes but is a good character anyway so it's always a treat when he appears.

-- edit --

i either need to start living in michael's room (which really wouldn't be so bad) or i need to borrow his piano or something...

Afraid of Being Weak [20 May 2004|01:10pm]

Let's go drive around downtown
Push away the troubles that drag us down
And I'll try not to apologize
For being myself because I realize
That my self is just what you love about me

Because lying here with you it soothes my nerves
Silently you urge me, "Have no fear."
It feels like so much more than I deserve,
But quietly I cling to what I hold dear.

not quite done yet, but it's progress... [12 Apr 2004|09:24pm]

well band practice has been exceptionally productive the last few weeks and i think we will be recording a demo really soon, which makes me happy. in the mean while i've written another song, not anywhere near what it was when i improvised/wrote it earlier today in kristen's apartment, but not terrible nonetheless.


Employ a miscommunication
to change the direction
their eyes are turned
Display all of your elation,
not the self inspection
which you've really earned

Maybe you're a liar
but you can hide that too -
It's not complicated.
Let them all admire
the godly man that you
think you've validated.

You can bury it below them,
the scars that you display,
and never fear suspicion:
no one else will know them,
the ugly wounds you've made,
which fuel your own perdition.

They'll be there long after you've gone.
They'll be there long after you've gone.

we need s'more band photos. preferably ones with me in them. i suggest that we go to deep ellum or something on a weekday or sunday afternoon when it's all abandoned and run-down-looking.

"holy canoli" is so much fun to say.

g'head. say it. it'll make you smile.

robot [16 Mar 2004|03:03pm]


what did you think about
when he first flipped the switch
that stimulated batteries and sent
power through your circuits?

I'm not sure your creator
suspected you could feel
so deeply, fashioned by rough hands
out of copper, plastic and steel.

And how is iron ore
so different from dirt?
You and I were made
and can be made to hurt.

I sympathize
you didn't ask to be here
I sympathize
you didn't ask and now
you don't want to leave.

la dee da da... [14 Mar 2004|10:53pm]

well, i've met with all the band members at some point during the last couple of days and gotten absolutely nothing done. well, okay, maybe i've been strengthening bonds between the band memebers, which of course is extremely important, but musically, nothing has happened. and there won't be any practice this wednsday, cause kristen and i and many others will be going out to fort worth to see pedro the lion play at ridglea theatre. let's call it musical inspiration time. yes. i'm gonna write some more lyrics, possibly for kristen's piano piece, possibly finish up lyrics for three other songs i am working on at the moment, hopefully by next week. i'll post them as they come.

For Bastian

Son, don't waste
waste your life
chasing these silly dreams

You've got to get your head
out of the clouds, and set
your feet firmly on the ground.

i also restricted posting access to band members. so it's actually more like a shared journal than a community.

i did this sort of haphazardly, so if there are any objections, speak now.

[ mood | relaxed. naked. ]

okay, sometime this spring break i'm gonna sit down and record everything i have so far, insofar as the general concept of the music is completed. i will record vocals for the two that have vocals and i will try to finish writing the vocals for two others that i'm working on, and potentially record those, too. so yeah. we'll get all this musical confusion somewhat straight before our next full-band practice.

which will be...wednsday after next?
