this is a rock ep i made in new york city with tony conniff producing and playing the bass. it starts with a rock song in 7/4, moves on to the song "monsters everywhere" that was featured in the tv movie i wrote and directed with mark harmon called "certain prey", then to one of the best rock ballads i've ever written, and closes with a song about a deranged man. what more could you ask for? cg

Track Name: Man On Fire
man on fire

soaked in sweat
it’s not desire
it’s not just pain

i’m a man on fire
i’m a crackling wire
i’m a man on fire

i see saints
in windowpanes
i hear choirs
in hurricanes

i’m a man on fire
i’m a crackling wire
i’m a man on fire

it’s always dreams that enslave you
and yet it’s dreams that’ll save you
i soar above
the sugarcane
a man on fire
in a world in flames

i’m a man on fire
i’m a crackling wire
i’m a man on fire

man on fire
i’m on fire
i’m on fire

Track Name: Monsters Everywhere
monsters everywhere

monsters are everywhere here in the dark
they live in the house they live in the park
you have any candy they’ll take it from you
you get a new toy they’ll take that too

monsters everywhere
monsters everywhere

monsters are there even when you grow up
what honest men build monsters blow up
daddy says monsters will send me to war
they don’t have the courage to tell me what for

monsters everywhere
monsters everywhere

when monsters are dreaming they’re dreaming of me
they’re dreaming of dragging me into the sea
they’re dreaming of oil and of ruling the world
and of stealing the toys from the boys and the girls

monsters everywhere
monsters everywhere

the things that I’ve said about monsters are true
they’re coming for me and they’re coming for you
there’s no way of keeping these monsters as bay
so just watch what you do and watch what you say

monsters everywhere
monsters everywhere
