If I wasn't born a fool, I'd be going home with you, Instead of standing in the cold, If I wasn't born a fool, Couple more inches I'd have grew, But now I'm close to the ground where I belong, *Chorus* Oh though I do my best to whine, I have dined a trouble or two, "Mmm and it sure tastes good", Said the boy who on his rope he chewed, Yeah they hung him so high, He sung the whole sky blue If I wasn't born a liar, I'd have stayed away from fire, I don't hang well from no wire, If I wasn't born a liar, I'd have never known the ire, Of my misplaced desires, *Chorus* If I knew that I'd die a coward, I'd have sang a little louder, I'd have played more out of tune, If I knew that I'd die a coward, I'd have screamed "hang me higher!", They'd have yelled back "What a fool", *Chorus*
Heading Off 00:58
I had something to say, But the whiskey took it away, Honey don't you dare fray, I'll be wobblin' on home one day, By then, I'll have something better to say, Well, back home I got this sweet sweet thing, She says howdy I said please please please, I never thought of myself as something sweet, But my god what she sees in me, My love so rich might just rot her teeth, I had something to do, But the whiskey's got me thinking of you
Set Me Down 04:10
Skipping rocks by the river side, Carve my name in the great blue sky, Not sure what time is now, I wish this was my simple life, Sure do wish that I could fly, So I can taste them clouds, *Chorus* The races won, When all is said and done, Don't mean much to me, This city boy, Taught the face paced joys, Floats down stream with ease, These trees make me feel tall, Just a part but we make it all, Close your eyes it's easy to see, If ever mountain tops make me feel low, Or I curse the water's ebb and flow, It'd be bought time you got rid of me, Cause it's just the way it seems.
Wild Bill 03:58
I don't mean no harm, But harms gunna come, I'm holding my own hand, Holding my own conversation.
*Verse* I never told a secret, I never told a lie, I was told to keep it, But instead I said goodbye, *Chorus* Goodbye good times, And the bad ones too, A time was had, Experiential Stew, *Verse* A couple cigarettes and an ego death, And a pint for every lesson learned, A unicycle smile is, Something best observed, *Chorus* Call it this or that it's really up to you, A time was had, Experiential Stew Some days I'd travel the world, And other didn't leave my bed, Something's got my body, There's monsters in my head, But they'll never get me, So they'll never I said, "I'll just keep on singing, until the day I'm dead" *Chorus*


This album is the result of experience. In Cork, Ireland I felt at home. This album is a concept. Each song is in chronological order in terms of when I was experiencing each one. There were laughs, tears, drinks, excitement, and love floating around this place. The apartment I shared with nine others was a wonderful stew of language, culture, and cooking. The blend of experience was amazing. All different backgrounds. All different ways of thinking.

Throughout the album you'll hear a phrase repeated in a few different languages. A phrase that applied often and continues to apply to every context I find myself in. "Nothing is lost, Nothing is created, Everything Transforms.

Thanks for listening Mauro, Salome, Emma, Roxanne, Lou, Jeanne, Nate, Eva, Eva, Luka, Marco, Odei, and Pablo. To all the others I met inside and outside the apartment, I wish you the best and I think of you often!
