Biography

"Your work is very original. You have great talent and are multi-faceted in your style. Intimate and secretive at the same time. The music on your site shows just the surface of what you are capable of. I feel there are so many layers beneath. Makes one want more. Keep it up. Best to you." V. McG.

So varied and dynamic has my life been, I could not stay packaged in one musical style. Playing music steadily since early childhood made me realize my ancient family muscial history, celebrated and pervasive still, was alive in myself in a Great Joyousness I could express, unrestrained.

Being Classically trained as a growing youth on the Trumpet has given me insight to the incredible Adventure music is.
Writing in styles I feel, rather than lock into, gives me the greatest versatility.

Styles I express myself in most frequently:

Mood
Childrens
Easy
Smooth Jazz
Symphonic Orchestrations
Alternative Rock
Rock
Hard Rock
Heavy Metal
Rap

My song, 'Music', with it's dancey bumpy beat sums up my outlook nicely:

"I believe music speaks to your soul;
takes you to another place and time.
With a fired up spirit needing no control you ease your mind-
Put a spark in living"

Adventure of Love

Written By: MPaul

Yes she may be lovely indeed, but her eyes told me a story and I stayed there I want to share their fire
No imaginary visions of her lying bare

Cos ' the Truth be told I see her fears
and I know that she feels the tears
she cries at night at the dark desert skies
I saw it in a moment in the window of her eyes

Can she believe in understanding what she's goin' through for me I know what I can be now
The chills she gets the man she sees in me

Her hands went cold as I held them with care
the warmth I hold is true and aware
and I know that she's runnng scared
Runnin' from my cool breeze to the shelter of her eyes

Little girl all this is for you how could you run knowing what you could lose?
silly girl it's love that you wanted and I've loved you so much that the fire's just insane as I am for you

So there's nowhere left to run from the words I spoke to you in the silence of your heart they've grown watered by resistance
expensive is the time we pass when the world needs so much Love so let's start an adventure the whole world can follow

Adventure of Love
No tomorrows
Invent some more Love
end the sorrows
Forsake not Love

It can happen on the power in the fire of your eyes

She Knows she lifts me just by smilin'
Yes, Love can flow so freely
Already so many stories shared

So don't let go cause we hold on loosley and the road might get bumpy at times
Happiness can be the foundation that our Peace supports all the time
and I'll bet my whole life on it-the promise of her eyes

So little girl all this is for you how could you run knowing what you could lose?
silly girl it's love that you've wanted and I've loved you so much that the fire's just insane as I am for you

So there's nowhere left to run from the words I spoke to you in the silence of your heart they've grown watered by resistance
expensive is the time we pass when the world needs so much Love so let's start our adventure

'Cause there's nowhere left to run from the words I spoke to you in the silence of your heart they've grown watered by resistance
expensive is the time we pass when the world needs so much Love so let's start an adventure the whole world can follow

Adventure of Love
No tomorrows
Invent some more Love
End the sorrow
Forsake not Love

It can happen on the power of the fire in your eyes

The Darkest Hour

Written By: MPaul + Elizabeth Cherney

Take my hand
and walk along with me in the sweet sunlight
I'll be a friend
And show you a higher high, higher than the stars

'Cos even when you're tired or feeling angry with me
Or shame hangs your head down to the ground
I'll hold your hand and be your friend through the darkest hour

I understand the troubles youv'e been going through
I'm here for you

And even when you're tired or feeling angry with me
Or shame hangs your head down to the ground
I'll hold your hand and be your friend through the darkest hour

Sometimes life seems cold and nobody cares
but you've got my hand to hold
I'll always be there
You're my Friend I'll always Care

And even when your'e tired or feeling angry with me
Or shame hangs your head down to the ground
And even when your'e tired or feeling angry with me
Or shame hangs your head down to the ground
I'll hold your hand and be your friend through the darkest hour
The darkest hour
through The darkest hour
through the darkest hour

Caught In The Machine

Written By: mPaul

You think you're so cool and you think you're so bad
your vertical knowledge is all that you have
you've neither width nor depth just height it's true
You've only mastered one thing and it isn't YOU

You haven't mastered you
You're caught in the machine

running on and on blaming it all outside yourself
proves the nothing you are to toe the real moments test
You might be good, the best, the champion of all the world's prize
But you don't know your own self, filters on your eyes produced by the machine

So why'd you run you tried to hide
you tried to breathe the sin
you wanna dance?
well come take a chance
You're caught in the machine
you're caught in the machine
it's been a broken dream oh my Lord

Well I don't feel likE
Well, I don't look like
You're not the same as me

So why'd run you tried to hide
you tried to breathe the sin
you wanna dance?
well come take a chance
You're caught in the machine
you're caught in the machine
So caught in the machine
you're caught in the machine
You're caught
You are so caught

Well I don't feel likE
Well, I don't look like
You're not the same as me

You think you're so cool and you think you're so bad
your vertical knowledge is all that you have
you've neither width nor depth just height it's true
You've only mastered one thing and it isn't YOU

You haven't mastered you
You're caught in the machine
it's been a broken dream oh my Lord
You're caught in the machine
You're not the same as me

Unamed Faces

ife stealer
Look into my soul
tho' I wear a mask o'er my eyes
seek ye for the truth within me
seek ye for I can't release me from my lies

There is an answer need.
we ask; the risk of dying
At my own hand; I would go there Yes
screaming demons; drug; into the light
hurts more than their presence
Please!!!! Must be done.

Is it so that it is so that I am not what I know but what those who died bequeathed me?

Sleepwalker; Thought Talker;less pain more gain to the never ever game we play.
Storybook children play in the life taking entaglement of the hiding.
fascinated by it no by ourselves no the darkness for the light hurts the eyes of the dreamer so.

rigid paper people fearing crying in pain
take me home
(you are home)
take me home
(you are home)
take me home
(you are home children)

But I am ME?

I AM ME!
you told me you saw the real me
I know you did you know I'm here, in me I am here, I'll be me in here
in here
in here

See me? Maybe we can stop and have hot, hot coffee and I'll show you our epiphany, our letting go and see if we really do-do we?

we really do-do we?
we really do-do we?
Only heaven knows
A Safe Place to take off the armor it's tiring so life stealing

life stealer
I am my own
Life stealer
I am my own
life stealer

The Haunted House

Written By: MPaul

Across the bridge and over verse, follow the demon ridden hearse
There's an old grey house on the other side of town where the spirits and demons hang
and rotting matter decays the ground
like cancer on a healthy brain
the local freaks test their courage in number, but they never go there alone
"and never stray close late at night" for the fear that they might not return home

yes the walls are painted black inside and the terror grips your brain

And the haunted house got it's reputation i the 1800's they say
when an old man died at the hands of another and therein laid his grave
Of course others met similar fates, but the murderer always got aways
it seems he shed the blood of his victims by ripping their limbs away

yes the walls are painted black inside and the terror it grips your brain
you can still hear the old man's cries in blood curdling pain
in the haunted house

On a dare, a yourng man goes inside to join the neighborhood gang
to find the light that burns there at night to bring it out to his friends
it shouldnt take maybe five minutes they assured him but not much more
but they heard him scream and his blood ran down the porch
no sooner than he closed the front door

yes the walls are painted black inside and the terror it grips your brain
you can still hear the old man's cries again and again and again
in the haunted house

When the wind is up and howling and the moon is full they say
and there's a tint in the light that burns there at night and the spirits call you by name
and if you stray too close to the haunted house, they'll pull you in by trance
and they'll have your soul in their fingertips and recruit you into their ranks
yes the walls are painted black inside and the terror grips your brain
you can still hear the old mans cries and laughter, demonic and insane
in the old grey house on the other side of town where the spirits and the demons rage
and the altar of death awaits your flesh
in the haunted house.

Expose

Written By: MPaul

Know thyself, know Me.
Know thy selfishness, know my need.

You've broken in, I'm exposed!
Exposed I am, exposed.

I, The Master.
I, the fool.
Exposed myself to you and you me too - I know it's you.
We need to reckon us.
God sees to beckon us to the bare naked truth.
I am strong enough Are you?

I want to run to every lover I can find, hide from you in the shadow you light up the darkness.

I've Exposed myself; I'm exposed to you

I've No fucking clue just what to do about you it's in my every sight and thinking.
You cut through layers without any bleeding this is fear-a real life force I...feel.....me sinking now.

(You touched me)

I've Exposed myself to you.

You have to tell me that you mean what you say should I open my heart or tell you go away?
You have to show me that you mean what you say I have opened my heart or should you go away? I've Exposed myself.

(And I'd never lie about my feelings to anyone especially you)

You can take me away if you need to, forever seems too short to know you.

Living with my mind on you I find it hard to carry through.
We must release this let it fly, I'm exposed.
I've exposed myself.
I'm exposed.
Are you the answer?
do we deserve this?
I'm exposed.
I've exposed myself.
I'm exposed.

Know thyself, know Me.
Know thy selfishness, know my need

I'm exposed, I've exposed myself to you.
I've exposed myself.
I've exposed myself.
I've exposed myself.
I've exposed myself.
