about

2004 was a big year for me, and it culminated in the award-winning At Odds At Times. With a blend of mostly-club friendly tunes tracks alongside a handful of other styles, songs from At Odds At Times climbed the charts & won awards on a couple websites and received club and air play. Since taken down from digital stores, I'm making it available here on Bandcamp!

Track Name: At Odds At Times
At times I feel I can't let go
At times I feel I fall
At times I can't help what I know
At times I can't feel at all
At times I look around this place
At times I close my eyes
At times I can't see behind your face
To see what lies inside

And now you've come here wanting
To find out if it's true
And though the clock is haunting
It's looking only for you

At odds at times I speak your mind
At odds at times the odds are mine
At odds at times you say you're mine
At odds at times I find love is blind

At odds with introspection
At odds with open sky
At odds with being so alone
At odds with open eyes
At times the odds are for the house
At times the odds are bare
At odds the times I realize
That time is everywhere

And now you've come here wanting
To find out if it's true
And though the clock is haunting
It's looking only for you
And maybe I'm convincing
Or you think me a fraud
But you can hear the ticking
And now you wonder, how long?

At odds at times I speak your mind
At odds at times the odds are mine
At odds at times you say you're mine
At odds at times I find love is blind

At odds at times
At odds at times
At odds at times
At odds at times
At odds, at odds, at odds, at odds,
At odds at times I find love is blind

I speak your mind
The odds are mine
You say you're mine
I find love is blind...
Track Name: Life Begins
We've come a long to be here tonight
To dance under the moon
And though there's things that we have seen all through our lives,
None of it has any hold
Here in this cocoon.

Only if we try

To understand that there's a time and place
For each of us to gain.
And, all we need is just our minds and our embrace
To push away this fear and doubt and wash away this pain.

The moment I open my eyes
The moment that we realize

Life begins the moment I open my eyes
Life begins the moment that we realize

We've come a long way to breathe free tonight
To stand beneath this air
And though our eyes are clouded we still find the light
We'll pass away these nights and days
And live without our cares

Only if we try

The moment I open my eyes
The moment that we realize

Life begins the moment I open my eyes
Life begins the moment that we realize
Track Name: Until The End
What's happened to me?
I can't express
A change that comes so slowly
Has grabbed me, I confess
I don't have answers
I don't have proofs
I just know, when I'm out there,
I grow cold and grow aloof

They all fall
The raindrops on my windowpane
They tell me I'll see you again
I don't know how, I don't know when
I'll wait for you until the end.

I feel the rivers
I feel the skies
I feel the oceans crashing
They break inside my mind
I feel the sunlight
I feel the storm
I feel the twilight
And I try to understand its form.

They all fall
The raindrops on my windowpane
They tell me I'll see you again
I don't know how, I don't know when
I'll wait for you until the end.
Track Name: Love
Love
It comes around
It comes full circle
It comes as a surprise
Love
It's unfamiliar
It's unforgotten
It shines bright in your eyes.

Signs on the road
Memories of a time we took away "alone"
Found that we both know we loved.

Love
It has no memory
It's extrasensory
It boils inside my heart
Love
It's consequential
It's more than sexual
It aches when we're apart.
Track Name: Reflections of a Mind
When the moonlight has passed
And when the sun comes soon
And we stand in the rising
Looking through the glass
I'll tell you of a broken spire
I'll hold in the place of our desire
And the mirrors we hold
In the place of dreams
Will reflect back, inside us,
If we turn them so...

On and on
A mirror's song
Shining back at you
Reflecting in the dawn
Comes the time
In our lives
We will find that we're reflections of a mind.

On and on and on and on,
On and on and on and on,
On and on and on and on,
On and on and on and on....

On and on
A mirror's song
Shining back at you
Reflecting in the dawn
Comes the time
In our lives
We will find that we're reflections of a mind.
Track Name: Faith, Hope, Love
Tell me, can you hear the calling?
Can you hear the sky?
I've come here often and alone
To spread my wings and fly
Here, along the sandy beaches,
And here below the moon
I just want you to understand
Tomorrow comes too soon

Will you try to remember?
Will you forget?

I know I've back on my road that
I lost to twisted time
Standing here with all my thoughts
They echo through my mind
The time we lost seems just an instant
A memory fleeting fast
I come to let it wash away
I come to let it pass

Will you try to remember?
Will you forget?
This time is precious
We can't forget

And though time marches on
And the years are gone
We can look to the stars above us.
We can laugh, we can cry,
Through it all survive
See the world and its joy among us
In your smile I have seen
All my hopes and dreams
Why should life be an endless twilight?
We can laugh, we can cry,
Through it all survive
Full of faith, full of hope
And love inside

Full of love inside.

Here we stand, now, at a crossroads
We're standing in the rain
We're watching with our eyes closed tight
To wash away our pain
Time it spins inside the circle
No matter what we try
I just want you to believe
The spirit doesn't die

And though time marches on
And the years are gone
We can look to the stars above us.
We can laugh, we can cry,
Through it all survive
See the world and its joy among us.
In your smile I have seen
All my hopes and dreams
Why should life be an endless twilight?
We can laugh, we can cry,
Through it all survive
Full of faith, full of hope
And love inside

Faith, hope, love, inside.

We can laugh, we can cry.
Track Name: Hope
Looking out from a fog
We see ourselves inside.
We can see the things that we define.
But if time moves so slowly,
If change takes far too long,
Tell me why we try
Why we still hold on?

We can try to close our minds
And suffer through the years of pain.
And we can try to live so blind
And try to see through falling rain.
We can live with open eyes
And let it all just wash away.
We can try to live our time
And all it brings:
As long as hope's alive.

And though time moves so slowly
Forever's but a night
Looking at the stars and what they hide.
And though life it seems an instant,
We blink and find it's
Passing by us
We can try to live our time:
As long as hope's alive.
As long as hope's alive.

And though life it seems an instant,
We blink and find it's
Passing by us
We can try to live our time:
As long as hope's alive.
Track Name: Love [Chemical Remix]
Love
It comes around
It comes full circle
It comes as a surprise
Love
It's unfamiliar
It's unforgotten
It shines bright in your eyes.

Signs on the road
Memories of a time we took away "alone"
Found that we both know we loved.

Love
It has no memory
It's extrasensory
It boils inside my heart
Love
It's consequential
It's more than sexual
It aches when we're apart.
Track Name: And You Laugh
Tell me how it's come to this?
Tell me why I feel I missed?
Tell me why I didn't stop it
Try to stop it from the start?

Tell me, with your voice so pure,
Tell me why I feel so sure
Tell me how the castles that we built have pushed us so apart...

And you laugh
It rings musical, and so kind
And you show me all the doors that I kept tightly locked inside my mind
And you laugh
Rings purity, and so bold
And you show me all the walls that I had built so tall inside my soul...

And you laugh, and you laugh
And you smile, you beguile
And you laugh, and you laugh
While you're breaking my heart
And you laugh, and you laugh
And you smile like a child
And you laugh, and you laugh
While we're drifting apart

Tell me why I dream my dreams?
Tell me, is life as it seems?
Tell me why I lay here on
A concrete sea and shattered glass?

Tell me, while you laugh and smile,
Tell me how you've grown so wild.
Tell me why the sky and why the earth and why we're in between.
Track Name: Kneurety
(Greek)
What you know
Forget it
Night brings peace.

But where is it written that all our dreams must be small ones?

(Greek)
Sun, sky, white clouds
They cut me deeply
We divide.
Bring loneliness
Bring darkness
The black night
We belong together.

What you know
Forget it
Night brings peace.
Track Name: Invincible (Lyrical Mix)
Purple lightbulb
Bathe in glowing, incense burning
Reaching out for who I am deep inside
Crossleg sitting, meditating
Feel a burn, now
Searing memories of you and what could have been

They all go down, one by one,
I see my friends fall one by one
And there's a clock
It's ticking for us now
It's ticking, without a sound.

But my clock's invincible.

Put in motion
Millions marching without vision
They go 'round their day-by-day occurrences
I stand, blinking, drinking, thinking,
Sinking quickly.
I mingingly try to make some pleasant talk.

I've looked back along this path and
Seen you turn to smoke before my eyes
are haunted, I'm undaunted.
You know it's just my principle:

That I'm so invincible.

Daylight dawning
City crawling
Blink to bounce back
I'll just smirk and roam along this concrete sea.
As I walk, I see the clock tower every time I
Turn to get a fleeting glance back at my home.

They all go down, now I see,
My friends they fall down, all but me.
And all the clocks sit silent now but mine.
Don't you know that my clock's fine?

If I'm so invincible, yeah.

Invincible?
I'm so invincible.
