about

After a short four year hiatus while: Adam studied the effects of polarizing ice caps in Alaska, Jon successfully invented a new pattern for the naming of AGI Gene codes, Takashi winning the Nobel Peace Prize for his research in how to manipulate bowel obstructions with bass frequencies and my tireless efforts to obtain patents and successfully market the world's first peanut butter milk (both regular and allergy safe), we're finally ready to regroup and share some new music with all of our fans..

Over the course of 2 years while taste testing my new peanut butter milk concept, it inspired me to write many songs. It was alarming how quickly my mind was expanded while consuming PB Milk and the urge to write took over. So here we are today just weeks before we officially release this creation to our friends and family!! It's been an amazing experience being involved in every step, from milking the cow on the farm to the extensive hours in the kitchen mixing various ingredients to the pasteurization process required to hopefully satisfy our consumers. So please look for PB Milk in your locally grocery store and don't forget to buy the new record while you're at it!!

Brae Detroit, Michigan

Chord shape permutations of sacred geometry, catchy melodies and a rhythm centric approach to song writing, the music is thoughtfully crafted much like paint to canvas.

Track Name: You And I
You and I, 
we’re no strangers
we’ve had our failures
and faced them all

you and I
never under cover
we were always lovers
never alone

you and I
we know where we’re going
what we’re towing
and what to leave behind

you and I
sometimes together alone
but we’ve stood tall
on common ground

Because we’ve found the space 
that makes us feel real

and realized that space
pulls us closer still

You and I
We’ve found treasure
in stormy weather
we can see the light

You and I
we don’t know what’s in store
we know we won’t need more
if it’s you and I
Track Name: Feel You Already Won
You keep on pushin and you don’t stop
Keep finding records that you must top
But you don’t realize I’m no spring chicken
In this race

I’ve got your number and your post card
I see your angle and you don’t like
That I can make you smile
When you know that you don’t even mean it

A subtle grin, a hand shake,
while the fire burns below the surface
you just feel that you already won

Punched you’re ticket on the fast train
Cutting corners and the growing pains
But you don’t realize, there’s a lot to be learned
From this race

A subtle grin, a hand shake,
while the fire burns below the surface
you just feel that you already won

I too was naïve
Once felt we’re on the same page
But now I realize,
You don’t feel the same way

You keep on pushin and you don’t stop
Keep finding records that you must top
But you don’t realize I’m no spring chicken
In this race

A subtle grin, a hand shake,
while the fire burns below the surface
all the while You don’t even know my story
or where I’m coming from
You just feel that you already won
Track Name: Mountain from Molehills
Take a look what the cat drug in
Pick it up and lay it on the bed
I keep wondering when will this end?
It’s time we face it again

Don’t you feel it’s so apropos?
You’re behavior has put you in a hole
It’s time that you climb on out
And try to start from the start

You see you make mountains from your molehills
Silver from your gold
Feel that the whole world is against you
But you don’t know

There is a whole world that is for you
Loved ones at your door
But you can’t even hear them knocking
So you don’t know

The fire burns but you can’t feel it
The light it makes, you can’t seem to see
All you see is your effigy
And how it burns in the field

Always melancholy malcontent
making mountains from your molehills
never capable of seeing the glass is half full

Take a look what the cat drug in
Pick it up and lay it on the bed
I keep wondering when will this end?
It’s time we face it again

You see you make mountains from your molehills
Silver from your gold
Feel that the whole world is against you
But you don’t know
Track Name: Life, Love and Lessons
Read between the lines
Of the current state
You find it no surprise
Still love debates

All the things you learned
When you were a kid
But you never understood
You still contemplate

Life and love
And lessons from, the loving

Don’t care to know yourself
Or that’s how you spin it
Telling all your friends
It’s overrated

What we need the most
You seem quite content
Pretending without
While your heart longs for it

Life and love
And lessons from the loving

Life and Love, and lessons from


The Loving, the loving, the loving…
Track Name: Satellites
One by one
Said and done
Say goodbye, say goodbye

memories made
time still fades
feel the change, feel the change

take me up there
moving round and round
where all time slows
and feet don’t touch the ground

space and time
reflecting light
passing by, passing by

ground to sky
circling time
satellite, satellites

take me up there
moving round and round
where all time slows
and feet don’t touch the ground

I don’t want to go
but I don’t want to stay
I don’t want to grow old
but I don’t want to be a kid
I just want to ride a satellite
with you

where all time slows down
and things come into view

make us new
ride a sky so blue

face to face
loves in space
we provide, we provide
Track Name: Get In Line
what has happened to me
something’s gone astray
friends don’t seem to come around
family don’t want to stay

somethings broken in me
but feel it can be fixed
I have no clue just where it starts
or where it feels it ends

I have pure intentions put to the test
but feel a character actor at best
Sorry if I wronged you in the past
But you’re gonna have to get in line
to kick my ass

deal with pain that cripples many
but I've learned not to complain
Opioid dreams used to be a perk
Even those have seemed to fade

but I have pure intentions put to the test
I feel a character actor at best

Id love to talk out all my problems
but I’d hate to come off as a whiner
So I quietly sit and ponder solutions
pop more pills trying to to abuse them
one thing you need to know
I really didn't want to put on a show
wish I was a better closer than starter
maybe than I would have gotten farther

I have pure intentions put to the test
but feel a character actor at best
Sorry if I wronged you in the past
But you’re gonna have to get in line
to kick my ass
Track Name: Modern Love
I know when to go out
And when to stay in
Get things done

I catch the paper boy
But things don't really change
I'm standing in the wind
But I never wave bye-bye

But I try
I try

There's no sign of life
It's just the power to charm
I'm lying in the rain
But I never wave bye-bye

But I try
I try

Never gonna fall for
Modern Love (walks beside me)
Modern Love (walks on by)
Modern Love (gets me to the Church on Time)
Church on Time (terrifies me)
Church on Time (makes me party)
Church on Time (puts my trust in God and Man)
God and Man (no confessions)
God and Man (no religion)
God and Man (don't believe
in Modern Love)
Track Name: No One Is Perfect
Driveways marked
Tires chart
An exit from the scene
That’s blue, but once was green

Treetops bend
Clouds roll in
The leaves begin to fall
From the rain that collects on them all

No one is perfect,
But there are perfect storms
We can agree to disagree

But the ones that win
Will be the thieves
I’m praying for awakening

Balloons get filled
Emotions spill
A stressful time for all
When the guards that we hold begin to fall

Decorations fall
The monster roars
The kids begin to run
From the one, that’s supposed to love

No one is perfect,
But there are perfect storms
We can agree to disagree

But the ones that win
Will be the thieves
I’m praying for awakening

The dust has set
Situation fixed
Clearer heads prevail
But can damage, that’s been done, come undone

Time does fly
Clouds subside
The sun is surely seen
And takes what was blue and makes it green
Track Name: Now We're Learning
I want to see you
Meet you again
A chance to change
The way that I listened

If we had seen the end,
We could have begun again

Memories linger
Time marches on
It’s the same singer
But a different song

Seeking right and wrong
Trying to make sense of it all


Lessons in life aren’t free
Who says experience is cheap
I wish you hadn’t paid dearly
But you did

And now were learning

Learning to live
About how to move on
It may seem easy
To those that don’t know

You and who you were
And what you brought to this world

Lessons in life aren’t free
Who says experience is cheap
I wish you hadn’t paid dearly
But you did

And now were learning

Now we’re learning
And now we’re learning
Now we’re learning

I want to see you
Meet you again
A chance to change
The way that I listen

If we had seen the end,
We could have begun again

Lessons in life aren’t free
Who says experience is cheap
I wish you hadn’t paid dearly
But you did

And now were learning
Track Name: Rewind The Clock
Lets try to shake this
but we can’t hide
The next time’s sure
Sure to send us reelin

Baby we can’t steal
something we can’t buy
but if it’s given
you know we’re sure to try

All the sun and the stars
Even those that seem far
We can wish upon
Around the world

Every dream and every joy
has a star
So let’s pretend
We can rewind the clock

And go back to a time
A time that we regret
Yeah I know
We can’t change the past

All the sun and the stars
Even those that seem far
We can wish upon
Around the world

Every dream and every joy
has a star
So let’s pretend
We can rewind the clock

You and I
can find that same bright star
One that we’ll see
When we close our eyes

Or maybe we’ll find nothing
Nothing at all
But if I wish hard enough
Maybe we will after all

All the sun and the stars
Even those that seem far
We can wish upon
Around the world

Every dream and every joy
has a star
So let’s pretend
We can rewind the clock
Track Name: Sun and Moonlight
It soothes me I know
It’s presence is always so warm
Couldn’t get more
If I tried

Lucid and shows,
Straightforward and easy to know
Couldn’t get more
If I tried

Its measure I hold
It fills me to overflow
Builds me when I’m broke
And makes me feel whole

It soothes me I know
It’s presence is always so warm
Couldn’t get more


It moves through the dark of the night
Cutting it’s light onto the sea

Present, when I feel your embrace
Bringing me home with the smile on your face

In the brightness of day and darkness of night
you’re my sun through the clouds and my moonlight at night.


Lucid and shows,
Straightforward and clear as a bell
Couldn’t hear more
If I tried

It soothes me I know
It’s presence is always so warm
Couldn’t get more
If I tried

In the brightness of day and darkness of night
you’re my sun through the clouds and my moonlight at night.
Track Name: Run, Until You Find The One
When you open your heart
And you let someone in
When you let down your walls
And your head starts to spin

It feels like the first time
And you wont let it go
You can’t get her off your mind
It’s starting to show

You feel they're not a lot of options
You feel the world is ending soon
Time to close your eyes, begin to run
Run kid run, until you find the one

Being young and in love
Has an advantage
Never know what’s in store
And there’s no baggage

It takes some time
To find the right one
There may be some pain
On this winding road

You feel they're not a lot of options
You feel the world is ending soon
Time to close your eyes, begin to run
Run kid run, until you find the one

That loves you for you
Until you find the one
You can love for, who they are too.

Until you find the one, find the one
Run, until you find the one
Track Name: Greed
Play it safe, stay the course
Don’t want to upset the balance of force
Toe the line and do the time
One day you’ll see but right now your blind

From the politics of greed
Controlling your mind, feeding your blindness you see
It is real, and it will bring you to your knees

Afraid to say, hesitant to show
So you keep doing all that you’re told
Somewhere in time, you’ll learn to see
You are a prisoner but you can be free

From the politics of greed
Controlling your mind, feeding your blindness you see
It is real, and it will bring you to your knees

Can’t you feel it when it comes over you?
Makes you feel helpless with nothing to do
If you’re soul remains intact, realize it’s not what you take
But what you give back

Play it safe, don’t stay the course
It’s time to upset the balance of force
Toe the line and in your own time
Your once dim light will begin to shine

Over politics of greed
Controlling your mind feeding your blindness you see
It is real, and it will bring you to your knees

Unless you choose to believe
That you can be free, from the greed
Track Name: With You
I thought I’d feel
like it’s all but over
But I can see
It’s not true

Oh sure they’re days
When I’m feeling under
But all I need to do
Is look at you

Greying hairs
Might make someone feel older
A constant reminder
Of the truth

Another year
Might make someone feel older
But that someone
Didn’t have you

To make them feel

Alive again, when they’re dancing in the rain
And laughing, all their blues away
And praying, for another sunny day
It’s bound to come my way with you

Bridge-
It is true, the way that I feel is not a ruse
I can’t refuse
No matter how fast the days escape me,
I’m fine with that as, long as you keep me

Alive again, when they’re dancing in the rain
And laughing, all their blues away
And praying, for another sunny day
It’s bound to come my way with you
