Biography

Basically it's a one man show but plenty of people have pitched in here and there live and on recordings. This really is just featuring some pissing around with various software on the ole laptop trying to make music in whatever window life allows. It's not perfect but it's real. The best take at that moment in time or the only take in that moment in time. Mainly all first take stuff, demo's really, straight from me to ones and zeros, and now to whomever listens.

Lyrics

Wild Flower

Written By: Mike Brewer

Wild Flowers
Growing by the road
no care of where I roam
you've been here from the beginning

Wild Flowers
The only care you have
is to drink from the rain
get drunk in the sun that is shinning

My Wild Flower

Wild Flower
you remind me of a place
and certian girls face
remind me where I'm going
and I'll keep loving

My Wild Flower
My Wild Flower

Wild Flower
all the colors that you bring
puts a spring in my step and
smile on my face so I'll keep rambling

My Wild Flower
My Wild Flower
My Wild Wild Wild
FLower

To Kill A Dream

Written By: Mike Brewer

Yes indeed
I've made a long circle
and if you know about rock and roll
that you get lost
you get laced and soiled
when you got no leg to stand on
and if you gotta roll then baby roll
I just need a song to hold

And with a song in my throat this
storm i'll weather on
with a song in my throat
song I can carry on

Try not to laugh
at me when I fall down
I said try not to gasp
when I fall on my face
I get creamed
I get cut
till I don't know up from up
till I burn out
I got a song to sing
don't I

And with a song in my throat
song I can cross the road
so I'll lead with it now
leave and I won't look back

My kind
will shake it off
to kill this dream
it just won't die

Dreams they come slow
but I know that they can grow
its an act or extension of a hyperactive mind
and if I get lost in the feeling
then I'm lost when I'm dreaming of the perfect
rock and roll song

And with a song in my throat
song I will carry on
With a song in my throat song in my head I get stoned
I don't need to tell you
it's just a dream I've been killing for song long
it's a dream
that I know just will
never die

Fame's Vampires

Written By: Mike Brewer

Count on this for sure my babe
you have me in this place and if all goes well
you'll have your way with me.

You've taken your aim and you've taken your time
the blood you'll taste is mine.
So make the kill and get on with your life.

These city lights they mesmerize, that cliche comes to mind
as your nails are scraping straight on down my spine.

Fame's vampires keep calling in my mind
Fame's vampires keep crawling up my spine.

Osmosis isn't the kinda word....
I'd call it a poisoning.
And everyone's looking to everyone as the latest thing.

We'll I stopped pretending about a day ago
so take what you can get. Suck it down and I hope you choke on
it.

Fame's vampiers keep crawling in my mind
Fame's vampiers keep sucking on my spine.

So I'll take myself out of this concrete place
to a place that's green in state. Wounded thin and plain in everyday.
Whore is a trend, yeah I sucked from it but it sucked more from me
and if I get bored I'll give you another taste.

Fame's vampires are calling in my mind.
Fame's vampires keep crawling up my spine.
Fame's vampires keep crawling in my mind.
Fame's vampires keep sucking on my spine.

Count on this for sure my babe
you have me in this place and if all goes well
you'll have your way with me.

Ship Out Of The Way

Written By: Mike Brewer

Ship out of the way
ship out of this place
all the lights how they fade

Ship out of this place
get the hell out of this place they say
before you're stuck on the grey line

Ship out of the way
Ship out of this place they say
ship out of the way
run away out of the way
run away out of the way

Mightier Than The Sword

Written By: Mike Brewer

Mightier than the sword they say
doesn't make it any easier
impale your heart on a ball point pen
with these words
I do amend

To hearts that break
to tears that fall
blind is love when it takes its fall

When will we
every make the change
when would we every make the change

Mightier than the sword they say
not so easy
to spill your blood
impale your heart on a ball point pen
it's mighty bright in the morning wind
will you know where this is going
will you know what I've done

Let's Sort This Out

Written By: Mike Brewer

Let's sort this out
cause I don't want to fade away

Neither wishes this I
