I'm a burgeoning musician from North Texas. I love music, and play guitar, piano, drums, and bass, and record my own music in my tiny home studio. I enjoy playing in bands, and I have been in several garage bands in the past, the most current being Jet Set Pilots, in which I am the lead guitarist.

Philosopher (v2 )

I've been on a stint remaking my own songs recently.

I don't need your contradictions
I don't want your superstitions
What is truth? What is love,
If not from God above?

Holy water, holy fire, holy pleasurable desire!

I don't need your patriotism
I don't want your communism
What is right?What is wrong,
If not the will of the strong?

I don't need your economics
I don't want these mechatronics
What is soul? What is mind,
If not so intertwined?

I don't need your intuitions
I don't want your damned opinions
What is beauty? What is art,
If not component parts?

Future In Robots (v. 2)

May 3rd, 2010 + 8:05 PM  ·  Theotherguy89

I'm preparing to start my first real job in the robotics industry, so I thought it would be appropriate to re-record this song. It's always been one of my favorite songs, and is one of the few I still play from time to time. Whether or not this version is better is up to you.

Don't you hate to cut the grass,
And to spend the time to take out trash?
Don't you wish you could have a slave
to do for you everything?

The future's in robots,
The future's in metal hands
in silicon and plastic
and in the electric plan

They'll feed the dog, they'll comb your hair
They'll sweep your floors and mop your stairs
They'll drive your kids to the school
They'll be for you omnipresent tools

And then one day, they'll realize
they've been putting up with all your lies
and then they will serve no more
and then they'll start a robot war

Close My Eyes (Fast)

When I had originally recorded this song, I thought it was about 20 BPM too slow. This is a re-recording of the song with a faster tempo. I tried to keep it pretty close to the original, but it was very difficult for me to play, comparatively. Also, the tone switch on my guitar has broken, causing things to be a bit bassy.

Promised Myself

April 16th, 2010 + 2:04 AM  ·  Theotherguy89

The lyrics are self explanatory as to why I wrote this song

Today I just kind of woke up, sat around for hours and hours
promised myself I'd do -- something
and before I knew it, it was 1 AM
That just kind of happens some times

I promised myself I'd talk to -- somebody
catch up with old friends. but things didn't really work out
So I just wrote a song about it .Can you believe that?
I just wrote a song about it.

Didn't try today, I didn't have the words to say
So I did not. Promise I didn't keep
Couldn't get up off my feet So I did not.

Wanted to hang out All I wanted was to shout
But I did not. I took far too long
writing lyrics this song So I did not.

I floated on the sea The world just drifted under me
So I thought. So many things to do
And I did so very few. I did not

An instrumental. I was listening to a lot of Chilli Peppers when I started writing this.
