about

I worked incredibly hard on this album over the past 2 years( 2011-2013). Each song means so much to me and represents a certain time and place in my life. Each of them helped me to grow and keep moving when things got hard. It was through the process of writing this album that I really became who i am today, and fell in love with Hip Hop. Many of these tracks are very personal, and even the ones that aren't about me have a sliver of me in them. I am releasing these songs not in hopes to stir up dust from the past, but rather to lay down the past behind me. I hope that my music can touch, and help others as much as it has touched and helped me.

Heres to the ability to adapt, and grow. I'm thankful for the chance.

please pay a few dollars if you can afford it!

released November 7, 2013

Huge thanks to my amazing friends for always being stoked to hear my latest track, and really encouraging me in my writing. Thanks to my friend/producer Jesse Northey, for all of his hard work, on the album. He recorded the whole album and sings back up vox in the song How Far.

Track Name: Phototropism
Dear Emilie,

Admittedly I aint been the best boyfriend lately
im kinda shaky n
these drugs they kinda make me
a little flakey
so just walk away and make me
a better man, cause with these drugs i understand
i dont really wanna lose my friends to this
but im just helpless to mental bliss
i dont even really want help with this
but i admit im kinda helpless so please God help us

im sorry if i missed your birthday last night,
i had a date with my crack pipe
i dont mean to be a shitty person on purpose
but when you have no purpose you feel really worthless
so i skipped my sons basketball game
n i bet hes glad i never came
n just the same
you bet that i still miss him
wish i could come over and spend some time with him
just to feel with him

but i think he'd hate it
his father was belated
you dont even have to say it
cause i hear it ever day, so like i said just walk away
n i hope to see the day
when my luck will maybe change
cause im a person just the same
and my dream is not to stay
under signs and walk ways
askin people for change,
feel like i bother them everyday.

Ima try'n get some help with this, just wait
but maybe im a crooked tree just tryin to grow straight.

------------
I'm sorry for me
I've got a lot on my plate
Maybe I'm a crooked tree just tryina grow straight
------------

Didn't learn my lesson the last few times
so i gotta find my black light
smoke out of my hash pipe
forget the mess from last night
where did I put that flashlight
confused all of the damn time,
I think i lost my damn mind
and its about time too
cause after you left, everything followed suite.
and Im not even blaming you,
but when i wave in the street i wish you would wave too.
n lately i really try and make it to the meetings
but i get cold feet n end em before they begin
i got a problem, im the first to admit it
i burned my whole life and our relationship within it
cant even go to school just to see my son,
cause when I do they just call 911
I've never been so embarrassed
as my son looks up with fear n
doesn't know his own parent
my heart can hardly bear it

I hope you try and understand
the tears of this broken man
so say hello to my son Ben
n when I shave I still look just like him.
I hope you had a really good birthday,
hope you know i miss you in the worst way

Not to sound like a psycho,
but i love you, and im sorry.

Sincerely,
Michael

Track Name: A Nursery Rhyme
Jack and jill went up a hill to fetch a pale of water
little did jill know about the ring kind jack had bought her
And like the hill excitement builds in jacks ol jolly heart
For he loved her more than he knew before, thier marriage fell apart

Jack and jill built on the hill a house of style n splendor
Jack employed designing toys to spray the boys with water
Jill would stay, inside all day, but for her man so proud,
For everyday the bills are paid, she often boasted loud.

Jack and jill lived on that hill for 20 years of laughter
But when jill found jack sleeps around
He never went for water
So now poor jack, lives in a flat, n drinks enough for two
And poor ol jill lives on that hill where all their love had grew.

Chorus:
Jack and jill went up a hill to fetch a pale of water,
little did jill know about the ring kind jack had bought her,
And like the hill excitement builds in jacks ol jolly heart
For he loved her more than he knew before thier marriage fell apart

Jack and jill over the hill found out about thier daughter
To jills surprise, and jacks wide eyes a gift that god had brought her
Her bellys big, cookin a kid,
She hopes she'll have his eyes.
It still stings she sits and thinks of jack and all his lies.

But loves a bond thats never gone so jack is back to stay.
and Tuesday night jill went to light the candles on his cake
To jacks suprise , and jills demise
A gift the devil brung
Little hilly jilly died of cancer in her lung
Jack still will visit the hill where her burried his wife
n' Little did he know that she would go that tuesday night
So now poor jack, lives in a flat, and he put down the cup
his little girl is his whole world, he watches her grow up
Looks in her eyes tries not to cry, cause shes just like her mom
And jack regrets the love he kept, now that jill is gone.

Jack and jill had climbed that hill not knowing what theyd find, like
A friend husband and lover, more like partners for a life.
Matter of fact, you can ask jack about that darkened day
When he fell down, broke marriage vows, and now his conscience pays
He finds it hard to disregard the shards of disappointment
reminded by her eyes, the curse of cancer has no ointment.

Tuesdays at eight jack Goes to see
His wife hoping shell rise,
The thing jack lacks is just the chance to try and make it right.
Two weeks had passed and so did jack, died of a broken heart
He loved her more than he knew before, their marriage fell apart.

Chorus:
Jack and jill went up a hill to fetch a pale of water,
Jill fell down and broke her crown and jack came tumbling after
And like the hill jack now is still, cause life will break your heart
For he loved her more than he knew before their marriage fell apart.
