  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    I will soon have a very limited number of discs with a version of this project where I've set the crossfades between songs in order to give it an interesting flow - more like the "concept albums" from the 70's (remember laying on the floor with headphones on, staring at black light posters and lava lamps?). They come in a digipack case with no shrink-wrap (you're welcome) and also include an actual physical object (CD) with a lyric sheet. All proceeds will go to support the Thosum Gephelling Institute in Williamsville, Vermont, where nice people gather for weekly free teachings.

lyrics

Nothing to Lose

Don’t look at me, I’m an animal
Just look away and I’m invisible
I’d rather be unemotional

I keep my heart in my overcoat
Hidden from you
Hidden from me
Nothing to feel
Nothing to see
I can be so unapproachable
I will protect myself from anyone or anything that threatens me

Chorus
I’m living deep
Deep in a dream
I’m in the trance
in the trance of unworthiness

(it’s up to me, I’m all alone
It’s up to me , I’m alone and invisible)

I’m living deep
Deep in a dream
I’m in the trance
in the trance of unworthiness


(I have to blame, I have to hide
I cannot fail, that would be unforgivable)

I’m living deep
Deep in a dream
I’m in the trance
in the trance of unworthiness

I’m living deep
Deep in a dream
I’m in the trance
in the trance of unworthiness

Sometimes I think I’m unlikeable
And find myself unacceptable
When I’m the cause of unpleasantness
and things go wrong, I’m responsible
I guess that I’m unreliable

(I’m) Broken and Wrong
(I’m) Damaged and bad

(with) nothing to lose

Doubting myself is precarious
For in the moment when I make myself what’s wrong my world will disappear

I must be strong and unbreakable
I can’t be weak or predictable
With no protection I am weaponless and still I’m all alone
An open heart is indefensible
(but) I know the score

yes I’m in the know
There’s nothing to lose

Don’t look at me I’m an animal
I only know what I’m sure about
I’ll never know or believe that I belong
