about

In Greater Numbers Los Angeles, California

This is a space/name for me to upload rough demos to more easily share with my friends/family. If you're not one of the aforementioned, I'm pretty excited you've stumbled onto my online song garage.

Oh and thanks to my sister, Clare, for the photos.

Track Name: Transatlanta
Transatlantic, give or take a few seas
Trials of chemotherapy to struggle and beat.
Wrestling IVs out of veins to just snag one more final "goodbye"
(Things dribbled from youthful lips)
Collecting dogtags throughout firefights
(They hit the ground and make it slick)

Indicator lights, enhancing vital signs, pointing to remission.
Nervous anticipation for the arrival home, hoping there's been no toll.

Smooth skin hidden underneath thousands of fibers
Thousand yard stare racking focus when tired,
On an image that prevented being hopeless.
Every strand when unnoticed.

An afternoon in late May, families to gather celebrate.

A few months in but only nine months out. The Hell it took to get here worth it now.
Wake in a cold sweat to a nightmare in the bed, linens all bloodied traced around swollen legs.
Through a window that feels just like a looking glass, read the physician and break in half.

It takes less than a year, it draws to a close so quietly at night.
Empty bedsides.
Attempts at moving on more feeble than the minuscule heart beat.
No false hope hides underneath.
