“Anything That’s Funny (Hurts Me)”

“After years of partying, ‘Everything Fun (Is Bad For Me)’ is about figuring out how to have fun again, without doing things you know are really bad for your health and your mindset.”

“Screaming Children”

“’Screaming Babies’ is a song that started with just a few chords and became a Rancid/Shock stylish atmosphere. I’ve come to the conclusion that adults complain more than children who know nothing. I’ve been on the road long enough to have gone from a single man annoyed by crying babies to a father who has empathy for the innocent and zero patience with whining adults.”

“This Is Not My Armageddon”

“I have often thought that the world was ending and that I should live accordingly. Only to find that life goes on forever.

“all the rules”

I wrote “All the Rules” with some good friends, kemble walters AND barry pointer. We wrote it before the pandemic, so I ended up rewriting the lyrics to try and capture how we all feel in this new post-lockdown world.”

“Make Time Stop”

“’Making Time Stop’ is a song about those moments in your life when you didn’t know or didn’t care what time or day it was. I can’t wait to create more of these moments.
