about

From a Manhattan dancefloor to a Paris footstep ... from a Philadelphia vacant lot to a mysterious burger joint in the depths of New Jersey ... this collection of songs traces a journey through the loneliness of today's world.

Track Name: Private Dramas in Diamond Rooms
Private Dramas in Diamond Rooms

Velvet ropes
lead us in.
At the Bar
Glacial Stares

There is yours
That is mine
What's your name?
Don't ask mine.

Lips and Ears
interchange
careless words
under the twilight

Private Dramas
Do the rounds
Private Dramas
Know no bounds
Diamond Rooms
Always precise
Diamond Rooms
Dissect and slice

Eager eyes
prowl and pry
for that moment
where you slip up
it's too late
you're ensnared
by the snare
--
Chase the night
with all your might

Jezebels
and decibels
Decibels
pull me through

Private Dramas
Do the rounds
Private Dramas
Know no bounds
Diamond Rooms
Always precise
Diamond Rooms
Dissect and slice

Back to Back
At the end of the night
your casio watch
flicks back the light

Back to Back
at the end of the night
now is no time
to bring back sun light
Track Name: Time Alone
Time Alone

My back is glued to a leather sofa
Curtains drawn blur out the outside

My eyes worn out by the flashing colors
A single lamp keeps me on task

Time Alone a skill to be honed or lost to distraction
Time Alone the mind is on point or clouded by worries

Going round in ovals / I push you aside
Especially when you offer a way out

Scattershot attractions ___ are now in vogue
but they detract from the prize

Time Alone a skill to be honed or lost to distraction
Time Alone the mind is on point or clouded by worries

My wrist seizes up / just at the thought ____ of a keystroke
Hardwood floors echo and bounce footsteps down the corridor

and they take me __to the balcony
a single vantage point to be alone
Track Name: White Rose System
WHITE ROSE SYSTEM

Remote Outpost
Now Redundant
Buried and forgotten
in a provincial town

WHITE ROSE SYSTEM
A relic ahead of its time
WHITE ROSE SYSTEM
A relic ahead of its time

Distant Remnant
Now just obsolete
Buried and forgotten
the jewel of the crown

WHITE ROSE SYSTEM
A relic ahead of its time
WHITE ROSE SYSTEM
A relic ahead of its time

...Mystique...in the SERVICE
...Mystique...in the SYSTEM
...Mystique...in the USER
...Mystique...at the OUTCOME

Phased out franchise
Now neglected
Buried and forgotten
on a suburban road

WHITE ROSE SYSTEM
A relic ahead of its time
WHITE ROSE SYSTEM
A relic ahead of its time
Track Name: Telephone Anxiety
Telephone Anxiety

Sitting on a step
He smokes a cigarette.
Eyes swell
Lips quiver.
Coming into focus
She picks up the phone.
Eyes swell
Lips quiver.

Telephone Anxiety
This isn't you and me.
Trembling voices
Awkward silence.
Telephone Anxiety
This isn't you and me.
Trembling voices
Awkward silence.

Hand in his hair
Sign of despair.
Eyes swell
Lips quiver.
Grabbing pen and paper
She clutches the receiver.
Eyes swell
Lips quiver.

Telephone Anxiety
This isn't you and me.
Trembling voices
Awkward silence.
Telephone Anxiety
This isn't you and me.
Trembling voices
Awkward silence.

Pressing digits
makes him shiver.
Eyes swell
Lips quiver.
Hanging up the phone
She pushes it away.
Eyes swell
Lips quiver.
Track Name: The Road To Nowhere
The Road to Nowhere

The Road to Nowhere
lay Off the beaten path
The Road to Nowhere
will be the starting point

The Road to Nowhere
goes past the prison
The Road to Nowhere
ends in a puddle

Driving instructor
seeks vacant lot
Driving instructor
champion of disuse

Hand over Hand
Smooth out your curve
Hand over Hand
Stay on the Line

Driving instructor
seeks parking lot
Driving instructor
champion of neglect

The Road to Nowhere
dwarfed by the highway
weaves through
a rainbow of
import /export
import /export

The Road to Nowhere
goes for the scenic
haunted by spectres of
industry
industry

Hand over Hand
Smooth out your curve
Hand over Hand
Stay on the Line

Come to a stop
Make a quick right
Three point turn
point of no return
