about

Surely one of the most different Hard Rock album's that you will come across I Am A Musician is a Hard Rocking, Powerful collection of songs I wrote awhile back around a most graceful age of 20, to be most precise. Some years later after reaching out and hooking up with bassist Jerry Kreis & drummer Chip Karp the songs found their way to the recording studio & were given life. I Am A Musician was recorded In 2004 and needed to be published and made available to the world. A powerhouse from start to finish. I Am A Musician is a signature song of mine and the album a small contribution to the world of Hard Rock music.

Track Name: I Am A Musician
I am a musician do you know who I am
I am a musician do you know who I am
I am a musician that's what I do
I write my music for all of you

I am a musician do you know my name
I am a musician do you know my name
I am a musician that's what I do
I write my music for all of you

If I told you a story about a man I use to know
He gave me his guitar when I was 3 years old
He told me someday I'd play, and everyone
would know my name
People standing around smoking grass,
He told me my music would make them thrash!!

SO THRASH!!!

I am a musician do you know who I am
I am a musician do you know who I am!
I am a musician that's what I do
I write my music for all of you!
Track Name: Poster Girl
I saw you In a magazine yesterday
I wanted to believe you were with me
wanted to believe you were my girl
wanted to believe you were In my world

I know that Its all a mystery
I'll never be the one you need
I know that you're just a poster girl
but I want to be with you In you're world

Take me higher than the sun
higher lift me up
higher then the sky
cause I wanna be with you tonight
Track Name: Forget
I went out yesterday on my way to the store
with a beer In my hand and no place to be going
Nothing to do on a friday night ya see my friend
is at home and he's with his wife

I'm gonna get drunk before the night is through
ya know I've gotta have somethin better to do
ya know I don't understand what is wrong with me
ya know I don't understand what it is I need

I wake up in the morning I'm all alone
my girlfriend left me along time ago
She didn't even care how I felt inside
all she left was a smile and she said goodbye

I feel in love ya I lost control
and now I'm all alone and it hurts you know
She took my heart and she ran away
and now with another man she lay

I don't know how shes doing now
I don't know who shes with
Tell me how do you share yourself
with someone and just Forget!!

Just forget! Yah! Forget Me!
Just Forget! Yah e Yah!

How do you Forget!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Track Name: Gold Digger
Gold Digger!!!

Out of the sky came a man
He had some gold In his hand
He said listen to me son
I am the chosen one

Then he pulled out a gun
and I started to run
as I looked In his eyes
He started to cry

You said you'd let me live forever
You said you'd always be my guide
You said you'd take me to
The rainbow In the sky
So soon It seems you've changed you're mind

Out of the shadows came a man
with a golden nugget In his hand
he said he was the chosen one
then he pulled out a gun!
Track Name: Trapped Below
Let me take you down
to a place that's under the ground
Where the demons will all love you
where you won't know what to do

Oh God I'm going Insane
I can no longer stand the pain
These nightmare's are destroying my mind
I think I'm going to Die!

Now!
Now I'm Trapped Below
The devils stolen my soul
these demons are fucking with me
I wish they'd let me be
I don't want to die down here
I don't want to live In fear
How long will this nightmare go on
and when will these demons be Gone!!

Wo!!!!! I'm Trapped Below!!
Track Name: Prisoner's Of The King
There is nothing here for me
but the torture and misery
I am just a prisoner here
Its getting close the time is near

The Prisoner's Of The King
are beaten and made to scream
The punishment Is what they fear
that Is what always kept them here

Then the chains will come and torture everyone
while the hero's stare at the glimpse glare
soon the people learn that they all will burn
and hell Is what they see

It becomes reality
It becomes reality
It becomes reality

As each day and night goes bye
the people look to the sky
Some of them pray to the sun
others pray to God
The women are bought and sold
they are slaves to the throne
Is this how my life was to be
or Is this just a mystery

It becomes reality!
Track Name: So Soon It Seems It's Gone
When I reflect on life
as I often do
the memories that mean the most
are the times I share with you
It's so hard to realize
where the time has gone
you made life so very special
So Soon It Seems It's Gone

Track Name: The Preacher Man
Well!
Here I am
born of this land
I was raised in this Church!
My mother believed In God
she told me that he was the bond
between true love and happiness

Well here I am a Preacher Man
the Bibles always In my hand
I preach the word of God everyday
I pray for the people
I pray for the ones
I pray for the ones
that do not hear

I told them
they could be free
I told them
but they wouldn't believe
I told them
they could be free
I told them
but they wouldn't believe

Well here I am a Preacher Man
the bibles always In my hand
I preach the word of God everyday
I pray for the people
I pray for the ones
I pray for the ones
that do not hear

I told them
they could be free
I told them
but they wouldn't believe
I told them
they could be free
I told them
but they wouldn't believe
I told them
they could be free
I told them
but they wouldn't believe
I told them
they could be free
I told them
but they didn't believe

I told them but they wouldn't believe
I told them, they could be free
I told them but they didn't believe
I told them, they could be free
I told them but they wouldn't believe
I told them they could be free
I told them but they didn't believe!
Track Name: Again
Oh what can It be what It is I need
to take away my pain and my suffering
what can It be what I'm searching for
the scars that I bare are from my long fault war

How long is the line that I standith In
will I make It Into Heaven and be forgiven my sins
For the world! I've been subjected to
and all the people and the things they do
In my life! through It all I've tried
I'll see you Again and give It another try

Oh what can It be what It I need
To take away my pain and my suffering!
Where can It be what I'm searching for
The scars that I bare are from my long
FUCKIN WAR!!
How long Is the line that I standith In
Will I make It Into Heaven and be forgiven my sins

For the World!! I've been subjected to
and all the people and the things they do
In my life! Through It all I've tried!
I'll see you Again and give It another Try!

AGAIN!!!
Track Name: The End Of Time
I can feel the rain begin to fall
I can hear the thunder start to Roar
I can see the clouds closing In on me
I can hear the Innocent victims scream

I can see the blood flooding all around
I can hear the evil deathly sounds
I can feel the pain flowing through the air
I can sense The End Of Time Is near!

Is It all a dream have I been pulled under
Have I lost my sense of reality!
will I wake to find the world outside
Or will I wake to see The End Of Time

There's a place beneath the world we see
There's a evil that dwells within our minds
Will this dream ever come true for me & you
Will we live to see The End Of Time!

Oh!!! Oh!!!! Oh!!!! Yah!!! e Yah!!!
Yah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
