about

Nothingful San Diego, California

Spangles of opportunity in which to dimension
into the angles of music and rhythms written in the air.
Sings, plays acoustic bass guitar, dobro, sax..
The songs are uncoventional in as so many
ways as he is musically untrained.
To play the bass in the way that Nothingful
makes it would be to so as in a tuning other than standard.
I am inspired by Laziness and randomness.

I LOVE LAST SECOND SHOWS.

Track Name: answering machine
I've waited for it all
like an unanswered telephone call
I'm waiting for you now
if you'll only let me know how

(I think of happiness and what it brings
I think of shiny things and a lovely bird that sings
of diamond rings, slayed kings, bee stings
and the telephone rings and rings and rings)
=================================
Track Name: The Air As Witness (acoustic)
===================
========================
==========================
Colored wax to break my back
So many colors here
Building nothing out of something
Up nights and wasted tears
Coulda kept a garden alive
A life on wheels, it just feels
like I've missed on the kiss

Pet ethiopia
I got today's paper and someone's got philophobia
and the car's got water vapor
and someone's laughing too much
and someone has to go and ruin the party
and someone's feelings are a crutch
and we'll be gone but what will remain is our art

Some don't like to think,
we don't like to drink,
There's all this talk of the elephant in the room
well I want some ivory real soon
Portable fruit and a cross to bare
I've got so much better I would like to share
Pick an object at random and an animal
A barrel and a goat, or a bear

Sew me something nice and useful
Can you sew my mouth shut
I don't want to speak any more
I don't want to have to say it
with the air as witness

This is a goodbye

throw out the baby with the bath water ok.

Track Name: Scandal slow burn
BURN THE SCANDAL (Solipsists)

We were just thoughts of each others' floating around
We only thought. We only were.
We only thought: we're only thoughts, that're lonely thoughts

We were only words in our minds
Not the first to be discovered
And then we dried up like so many oceans
we dried up with salt water in our eyes

We were just like words thought of between exhalations
60% of our bodies are water and then there's condensation
and for every other occassion of varying duration,
station to station >> masturbation

I, we were left to our own devices
Like storm-weathered, our falling prices
As Everyman we face every crisis
and our cold unforgiving vices we could not handle
So let's light a candle
Burn the scandal

And now we sail to seas long forgotten
I am a boy all made of wood you are a vessel filled with cotton
and then I thought all this
I tried to cement a kiss
sometimes a bullseye is a miss
but I'm just taking the piss

And they say that all pride comes before the fall
I fall
Watch me make a sound
and I will never hit the ground
================================
Track Name: I Never Lived in New York (original demo)
==================================
We are so young, let's make it count, capice?
Your chest was smooth, no bumps, just flat
I remember we lost the dog by the fountain, no leash
The best of our youth, playing at the dump, and all that

Getting lost at the fair
Memories of Coney Island
though I was never there
And of you and I and
Your golden locks of hair
What we could get by on
We were quite the pair
Memories of Coney Island
Something beauteous and rare
Of you and I and
Whatever we could get high on
Your everlasting, timeless stare
would knock me off my chair
so filled with emotion, devotion, care
it was more than I could, can, or will bare

We were so young, our smiles were genuine, they were
Our clothes were simple and striped
Social graces, when you dine, with her
Sexually opposed, but our fruit was ripe
==============================
Track Name: STONE LAZARUS
====================
You were a Stoned Lazarus
Come let the saints gather us
We all put it off
and we got sore knees
Let me off the hook please.
They gathered round and called you, call you, called me
Stone Lazarus
The saints all come and gather us
Set their words to page, set the page to words
Draw lines from the sky from the birds
What you heard, I heard, they heard
A divinity in thirds.
what's currently preferred
what's conveniently remembered
Mind to shit to power to page to word

Let us off the hook please
from your holy decrees.
The mind frees.
No one agrees
or sees
the need
to feed
lower case Ts

Way off the track.
Days looking black.
We should stone lazarus
and see if he comes back.
====================
====================
Track Name: Wax & Fable (acoustic)
======================
WAX AND FABLE

I have no regrets
at least that's what I said
Don't fly too high, you'll get burnt
I don't know nothin', that's all the school I learnt

Where were you in the hall afterschool?
You sure played me for the fool
You forgot all about our golden rule
The world's a place, sad and beautiful
You forgot about our own golden rule
Enough about rectangles. I want your spheres.
and those were our childhood years

But we learned something:
I ham a good egg
We are a good egg

and now I continue to say..
I have no regrets
and I'll say that that's what I said
Don't fly, too high, you'll get burnt
That's not what I said to you, my words, those weren't
Her face all lines, age on hers, I preferred yours
We got our tests back, red ink and solid fours
and just then you tore your test up and
sprang up and, headed for the door
I never took the notes,
but I got you down in my college rule
God we hated school

It's a sad and beautiful world
and you weren't the girl
