A long-time project that has taken several years to complete. Focus is on the media and entertainment industries.... A very versatile collection of songs.... that are driven by lyrical ponderings and observations from long ago to today about the various and "levels" of sacrifice awaiting those who are driven by their love for their hopes. The media and entertainment bizz is a rough one and the lyrics in this album paint a tale of the successes, boobytraps, dreams and pitfalls awaiting those who dedicate themselves to their internal voice that drives them forward to their dreams. Grab your earphones and sit back and partake in a lyrical journey ...thru ... HOLLYWOOD.

EBEEBE  

 

VERSE 1

He went from earned abundance to the depths of total waste

Pushed away all he had worked for, just to have a little taste

Perhaps he never planned how he would celebrate success

So when that day arrived, he chose to feed his joy distress

CHORUS

Why was he thinking, he wasn’t doing any harm?

While his soul was crying, crying, crying from the needle I his arm

 

VERSE 1

Now, all of the accolades and all the awards

From the movers and the shakers, now only sound like empty chords

And all of the flicker shows will be playing back his past

But, all we’ll see is an empty space at the a reunion of the cast

CHORUS

Why was he thinking, he wasn’t doing any harm?

Till he woke up dreaming, dreaming, dreaming with a needle in his arm

 

BRIDGE
Now, what about the children that this evil leaves behind

As it steals away the most precious gift, the choice to give our time

Push back all these demons who lust to steal our precious love

Poisoning sweet futures with the back-side of a glove

 

VERSE 1

Friends and family they gather to cry and shake their heads

As they pay their last respects to him reclining on his final bed

Then they drift in single file out to a field that’s filled with stones

Touch his box with one last wish then turn away and he’s finally alone

CHORUS

Why was he thinking, he wasn’t doing any harm

Till he woke up dying, dying, dying with a needle in his arm

Why was he thinking, he wasn’t doing any harm?

Till he woke up dreaming, dreaming, dreaming with a needle in his arm
