Occasionally the real world pulls you away from the things that you love; but sometimes, you're reminded that you can come back. I use to be in a band called The Jupiter Project, and then I was in License, then I went toe-to-toe with Giant Battle Wombat and most recently I tried to keep up with the Paper Snakes. ... more

Track Name: High On The Hill
Sometimes in the afternoon the light blocks out my view
Offense turns to defense and there's little left to do
Our position may be stronger, our position may be true
But all we have is one good book and a fear of what you'll do

So we talk about the carnival and poets of Peru
They could be a fable just like the blue caribou
But we stopped believing in that right around 22
So we sit and stare at the wall and wonder
If that's really you… High on the hill

Tonight I will pass the watch to either Peter, David or John
Sure, these are the easy hours but they will never let on
In fact we all like to say it's like that summer in Oregon
Where we grateful to have the tightest rope made of Nylon

I wish I could go home to that girl from Tucson
But the only one's I know are in the pictures of Avon
imagination -- be damned -- you've done nothing but lead me on
I wish I knew more than this and had a love to fall on
I want a love to fall on… High up on the hill

I am here and you are home
