This is a song from the 2007ish Dreamboat record that I first recorded on the 2005 album I listed the other day. It’s, as far as I can remember, the only song I’ve recorded and released twice. Here’s the original  – CLICK.

There’s tranquility to the chord progression that makes it as hypnotic to play as listen to.

“Mirrors Across the Ocean” from the 2007 release The SpaceDragon was one of the first songs written for that album. I wanted it to be the lead track but was talked out of it by various wiser minds. In any case, on a record with some great songs, this one really stands out, I think.

This is the final track on a crazy … crazy great … and totally crazy record I recorded in my little apartment in the Caribbean during a two-week rainpour. 

The tracks vary, but this one was always a standout in my mind.

Bored of Santeria 
Fell down on my knees 
I can’t hide, no I can’t hide 
I can’t hide anymore, nor would I 
Born a so-n-so 
Dancing on the sea 
Leave it all behind 
Leave it in the papers 
Lay across the cross-hairs 
Leave the skin deep behind 
And so become the river 
There’s nothing left behind us
