NEW YEARS UPDATE!

HELLO ALL! Happy New Year! I am very excited about this New Year with new album's to be released and more shows to play the progress maybe slow at times but its steady! This is also a time to reflect on what has been accomplished and what needs improvement. There are many reasons to play music it's challenging, creating is mentally stimulating and my favorite reason of all is its plain fun. If you have a new year's resolutions I urge you to pick up an instrument and play! It may be frustrating at first but it's worth it also encourage others too it's a positive way to spend time and energy. If you are reading this and checking out my site, shows and listen to the music I post on soundcloud (a link is on this page) I would like to say thank you and wish you the best this new year. I said it before and I'll say it again check back for upcoming shows I hope to see you there!

Best regards and deepest gratitude,
Mark

The Fight

Written By: Mark Pisanelli

(Mark singing) It keeps me in check,
It keeps me in motion,
It keeps me in lockdown and devotion,
And when I speak the words come right out
Like a dam breaking water comes out
And it kills so many people like the words said in the steeple,

I’m fighting for freedom,
I’m fighting for everything,
I’m fighting for what it takes,
This world is killing me!
I’m fighting for justice,
I’m fighting for who I am,
I fighting for everything,
I am, I am
IT KEEPS ME IN CHECK!

In My Head

Written By: Mark Pisanelli

If I could,
See my self,
In five years,
Would it help?
Not knowing what Lies ahead,
Or am I better off dead,

If I could,
See my self,
Why would I be someone else?
My best friend till the end,
And I’ll be here until the end,

With nothing better lose,
With nothing better say,
I want to live forever,
In My Head,

Why do I feel stupid not knowing what life is?
Can I get some respect?! or will you people just forget about me?

With nothing better lose,
With nothing better say,
I want to live forever,
In My Head,

With nothing better lose,
With nothing better say,
I want to live forever,
In My Head,

The Hope Within

Written By: Mark Pisanelli

The Hope within

Well I believe that’s there’s hope within,
And these chains are breaking reality,
And I know that these dreams will come true,
Paying all of my dues to society,

Today I must risk everything,
If I don’t try then why life today,
And I believe in the unseen,
Tradition is stupidity,

I can hear you from a mile away,
Your thoughts are clear but your words still the same,

I want you to find tranquility,
This peace of mind which comes from me,

Prophecy that this hope is in me
Guiding and protecting everything,
And I know that these dreams will come true,
Paying all of my dues to society,

Today I must risk everything,
If I don’t try then why life today,
I believe in the unseen,
Tradition is stupidity,

I can hear you from a mile away,
Your thoughts are clear but your words still the same,

Everyday is work

Written By: Mark Pisanelli

I'm a slave I work so hard so one day i can get away,
This may be my last day on earth but I got to go to work,
i don't want to go to work today,
i don't want to go to work today,

some may say, i don't know the way, the way
I don't know what to say to the way, the way
i don't want to go to work today,
i don't want to go to work today,
i don't want to go to work today,
i don't want to go to work today,
