about

Organic and original genre crossing rock. Funky, jazzy, soulful, sometimes folky, sometimes electronic; psychedelic and full of feeling. This is an album that has a full sound but doesn't suffer from overproduction. Once again Greg played guitar, saxophone and sang with James Whiton on double bass and Guido Perla on drums. Many of the songs were recorded in the moment, capturing the feeling of three great musicians in a room just doing what they love to do - playing music. It's a rock album, but all three musicians are well versed in jazz and improvisation and this freedom definitely comes through. This is almost like an album and a half - the first ten songs feature the band playing upbeat songs, and the next five songs are just Greg, taking the listener deep inside. In this time of computerization and plastic disposable music, this is an album of real musicians playing real music with a real message.

Track Name: Everything To Me
You're the trip that takes me far
You're the candy in my jar
You're all the salt that's in the sea
You are everything to me

When I left you at the station
I couldn't begin to see
Just how much I'd miss you
Just how much you mean to me

You're an eagle in the sky
You're the ice cream on my pie
You're a teacher teaching me
And you're the wind that sets me free
You're the one who makes me feel good
You're the one who makes me see
Because of you I understand now
Who it is I'm supposed to be

In the days before I met you
I always wondered who you'd be
Now my question's answered
Life's been good, it brought you to me

You're the trip that takes me far
You're the candy in my jar
You're all the salt that's in the sea
You are everything to me
You're an eagle in the sky
You're the ice cream on my pie
You're a teacher teaching me
And you're the wind that sets me free
Track Name: They Know Our Names
The Time has come around
To kneel upon the ground
And praise our mother earth
Realize what she's worth
We could know
We should know
We need to know her name

Rivers, lakes, and streams
They're all asking 'please'
Couldn't we agree
To live in harmony
With the earth
Know her worth
End these foolish, dirty games

I like mountain streams
More than limousines
Give me pure white snow
Instead of neon glow
We could know
We should know
We need to know her name

The stars are shining down
It's amazing how
We forget that they
Watch us all our days
Hard to show it
But I know it
They know
They know our names
Track Name: You And I
Lady If we try
You and I
Could touch the sky

Do you remember the time
We swam in the sea
I liked it when
You swam with me

I love you
I love you girl
You fill
Up my world

You know I'm sorry
For all the times
That I hurt you
And made you cry
I love you
I love you girl
You fill Up my world
Track Name: Jupiter Watches
Tears on her cheeks
Rolling down
Find a pathway
To the ground

She can't hide
What she feels inside
Got to find a doorway
Out, a way outside

There's that voice inside her head again
Telling her
She'll need a friend
To help her find the wonder
Keep it till the end

It's raining roses
Got to find
Close contact with the sky
A little confused
Don't know where to start
It's very loud this beating heart

Jupiter's strong in the sky
Tonight and I need to know
How to go
Show me how to live

I thought I'd know
All the ways
There are to go
But now, you know
I'm not so sure

Jupiter keeps an eye on us
Knows if we have enough
To get by
She and I
Track Name: Impossible Goodbye
When I go away from here
Your face in my mind
Won't fade remains clear
Always gonna stay inside

No words
Could tell how I feel, now
It seems absurd
But it felt so real, somehow I can't let
This thing end
Not yet
Time will slide
So easily
What would you do, girl
If you were me
It's a new world
And I can believe again
Open my heart
To a friend like you
A girl like you

And now
I'm on my way from here
Your face in my mind
Won't fade remains clear
Always gonna stay inside
It's been such
A short, short time with you, here
Now I'm leaving
I can never stay near
The girl I love
Cause I move on
I'm always moving on
Track Name: Mrs. Green Blues
I can see
See clearly
I can breathe
For the first time freely

It did not just happen today
It's something for which I've had to pay
I had to learn exactly why
I had wings but never did fly

I can see
See clearly
But I can't speak
Can't speak freely
So many remain blind
To the love that lies inside
Open your mouth about it and you'd better hide
Cause they want to keep it locked up tight

Mrs. Green
She's a friend of mine
She helps me see
I visit her from time to time
She can show me what's real
Helps me know how to think and feel
Together we expose the lies
Gives me wings so I can fly

If we could see
See clearly
Then we might breathe
Might breathe freely
We could learn to look inside
Use the love that we should not hide
Then we'd all know the reasons why
We'd all have wings and we'd all fly
Track Name: Sunshine
The wind has started blowing,
Here comes the rain
It seems that nothing's going
To remain the same
Darkness may fall
Upon the land
But sunshine will shine
Sunshine will shine again

And clouds are rolling in
It seems the rain will soon begin
To fall upon us all
Unless we answer to the call

Turn off the moon for me tonight
I can't sleep, things don't seem right
I'm full of feelings
I'm not sure I should feel
I'm not sure anymore just what is real

And the truth should be quite clear
But it's far away from here
Where all I can see
Are all the lies surrounding me

The wind has started blowing,
Here comes the rain
It seems that nothing's going
To remain the same
Darkness may fall
Upon the land
But sunshine will shine
Sunshine will shine again
Sunshine will shine
Sunshine will shine again
Sunshine will shine
Sunshine will shine again
Track Name: Kings And Queens
There is a man, he can see A man they call the enemy It's been this way throughout history The enemy is the man who sees The enemy of the kings and queens They say he's a bad man And the people believe it, they don't understand That he's not really a bad man But the people don't see, they don't understand The people don't see, they don't understand There is a man and they say He's a dangerous man who's gone astray He lives his life in a different way The dangerous man is the man who strays The man who strays will not obey [[Free When will we see We should be We should be free You and me Cause it's our destiny To believe Get off our knees Dream our own dream Dream our own dream]] Those that lie to you and me Don't want the truth to set us free It's so very plain to see Power corrupts the kings and queens Power corrupts the kings and queens If I could take your hand Lead you on help you understand I'd take you to meet the man Then you'd really understand You'd know the truth and you'd understand There is a man, he can see Some believe he holds the key To unlock our destiny Teach us all how to be free Show us what we could not see Help us to dream our own dream
Track Name: Means To An End
Life's the means to an end Life has meaning in the end We all need a friend To show us The way There are lights that show the way Lead us on day by day We've all got demons and debts to pay But there are lights that show the way She said it doesn't make much sense There's all this pain and accidents Break me down Day after day She said it doesn't make much sense There's too much pain and violence And arguments For which we all pay "Sit awhile and stay with me," she said "I need someone to help me see That tomorrow could be Much better than today" End of story She walked away Looking forward to better days With better ways And nicer games to play
Track Name: Over And Beyond
When the time it comes For you to get up and run Don't be afraid to go Cause fear hurts you, you know A candle flickers in the wind Don't mean it couldn't begin To burn oh so bright Now it's flame lights up the night When the time it comes The feeling always comes And it's sure that you'll know What direction to go When you've got to be free Not always able to see What lies ahead up the road Sometimes, there's no way to know If I asked you please Would you come with me I know it's not an easy way But I need you to stay with me So we'll make our way on Over and beyond Seeing what there is to see, girl You and me
Track Name: The Same
Don't take your eyes off the sun
Or stare too long
You will find the way
If you ask the sun
For an answer to come
Soon you'll find the way

When nighttime arrives
If you're still alive
Nothing will seem the same
There'll be hard times ahead
It's good to have a friend
Up until the end
It's good to have a friend

A star shining down
Can burn the ground
Eliminate the rain
Shadows on the ground
Dance without sound
And go home at the end of the day

This song is for the one
The burning son
Who knows we're all the same
Don't take your eyes off the sun
Or stare too long
You will find the way

This star shining down
Darkening the ground
Can take away your pain
We can be just like the one
We call the sun
Really we're all the same
Track Name: Hands
Another song about a boy and a girl
Hand in hand walking through the world
But it never seems to stick around
One hand alone can't clap, it makes no sound
Now it's over
Now it's gone
The girl stays in California
The boy moves on
He can think about it, California
And the good love there, that's gone
Hard times, it's the same old story
A story often told
A hand won't return
To the hand it used to hold
Now it's over
Now it's gone
The boy left his heart in California
Far away, long gone
He can blame it all on California
So many good things there, gone wrong
The hardest part of all is goodbye
You'll only cut yourself asking why
The good times come, and they go
Don't ask why, cause you'll never know
Now it's over
Now it's gone
The girl stays in California
The boy moves on
He can think about it, California
And the good love there, that's gone
