LYRICS

Slippin’s music is a creative, fun and thought-provoking
blend of modern folk and electro-acoustic rock

We Are One

Like a drop who forgot he’s a part of the sea
Like a leaf who won’t see she’s a part of the tree
Chorus:
We’re blind, we’re numb, we can’t see
Our minds ain’t done, we’re not free
But inside, don’t run and we’ll see . . . we are one
Like a flame who claims he ain’t a part of the fire
Like a breeze who never sees she’s a part of the sky
Chorus
Like the rays who won’t say they’re a part of the sun
We’re souls, lost souls who don’t know we’re a piece of the whole…a piece of God
Chorus
One

Awake and Alive

Here I go again down the street to the same ol’ familiar bar to be swept off my feet
I go home to make a prayer to my toilet bowl; Could God be listening down below?
Chorus:
Come on people let’s get out of our heads and into our hearts
Don’t you want to be awake and alive?
I’m up at 8am, my heads on the floor; a brush and a bite to eat, I’m out the door
To a job that’s meaningless, the pay’s a joke; and I don’t do nothin’ else but lie to folks
Chorus
It’s all just make believe, the future and past
It’s not for our eyes to see, the ceiling is glass
And it’s time to stop thinkin’ time, there really ain’t no such thing
Yeah, that’ all just in your mind, let the moment be
Chorus

To See the Light

I walk down that road to imagine where I’ve been
I swallow my pride just to throw it back up again
I search for clues of truths down holes and traps and when…
I look in, under skin, I lose my mind…
To see the light
I talk to myself as if I am not just me
I listen close as if I don’t know what I mean
I search for clues of truths down holes and traps and when…
I look in, under skin, and lose my mind…
To see the light
Bridge:
Don’t want things that you don’t need
See beyond all there is to see
Hear the silence in between
Feel the space that holds you and me
And when our shadows seek to hide
Drag them straight into the light
I walk down this road to examine where I am
I fill up with sunshine just to pour it back out again
I find some truths from clues past holes and traps and when…
I look in, under skin, I begin…
To see the light

S.A.D. (Seasonal Affective Disorder)

In the spring of my life I feel so nice and warm
Love is all I know, there is no sign of harm
And I don’t question this soul, I am just what I am
And there ain’t nothin’ I can’t do, I think I can, I think I can
In the summer of my life it’s gettin’ way too hot and
I keep tryin’ to add up just what it is I got
So now I question my soul, my head ties it up in knots
And everything I know is lost in the wilderness
Chorus:
Where will my life go? Where will my soul float?
Where will my mind wander to? I don’t know
And how will I ever find out where my life goes?
In the autumn of my life the leaves are all changing
From all these colors, bold and bright, to brown and they’re falling
And I try to keep this aging in the back of my mind and I
Find new ways of rearrangin’ ‘til all that’s real is blind
Chorus
Bridge:
Now in the day everything seems ok
But when that sun goes down, it ain’t
In the winter of my life my soul is almost numb
Everything bleeds to white, where did I come from?
And where will I go?
Chorus

You Only Go

I ain’t gonna lie in wait, I ain’t gonna wait in vain
I keep on moving closer to where I am
I keep on moving closer I know I am
You only go the way your soul wants to go
You only go the way your soul needs to go

No Guarantee

I bolt up from my bed, one day nothingness instead, here in my head
I look out into dark, I feel so close but way too far; stuck in a jar
‘Cause life ain’t no guarantee; and life ain’t just you and me
I wake up in a dream, I want to laugh, I want to scream; burst at the seams
Well, maybe this is real, who I am and what I feel; just a movie reel
‘Cause life ain’t no guarantee; and life ain’t just you and me
I sit down to relax, the tv turns on it’s attack; the news dressed in black
So in a sitcom haze, I find some laughter in this maze; in laugh-track ways
‘Cause life ain’t no guarantee; and life ain’t just you and me
But life isn’t what it seems…
Open up your eyes so you can see; open up your mind, set it free

Truth or Gold

I walked along this pavement that used to be grass
I have hiked up hillsides where only condos are left, yes I have
Lookin’ back on history, seems like war after war
If we could see our future, would we find all the more?
Chorus:
I played my guitar ‘til my fingers bled
Looked into my soul ‘til I lost my head
Given truth or gold, I’d take truth instead
I knew a family with money, not a smile to be found
They all pass the man on the street with their eyes to the ground; that’s what I found
I fell away from many dreams, I landed on my feet
To my mind I keep saying: “One day I’ll set you free”
Chorus
Thinkin’ ‘bout the end of me; all my stuff is just stuff
All I need’s a drop of truth please; all the money and gold ain’t enough
Chorus

Words Fall Short

I went to the mountain just to see a sage
I read those books never missin’ a page
But when I thought I had somethin’ to say
What came out just didn’t obey
Because words fall short every time
I fell in love when I fell in her eyes
It took only a second yeah, to realize
But when I told her it sounded like a lie
‘Cause something got lost between the lines
Because words fall short every time
See the truth and then it runs away
I hear the words of what God did say
I think I understand so I try to explain
But then my mouth just gets in the way
Because words fall short every time
And even now as I’m singin’ this song
It feels so right but the words are all wrong

From Above

With my feet I’ve been walkin’ the same streets, I’ve been walkin’ the same
With my head I’ve been thinkin’ some weird things, I’ve been thinkin’ some weird things
With my hand I’ve been writin’ it down now, I’ve been writin’ it all
With my eyes I’ve been seein’ some strange things, I’ve been seein’ some strange things
Chorus:
You don’t have to fight to get your rights
You don’t need a war to get some more
You don’t need a gun to protect your son, no you don’t
You just need love…from above
With my legs I’ve been movin’ along now, I’ve been movin’ slow
With my ears I’ve been hearin’ some weird things, I’ve been hearin’ some weird ass things
With my back I’ve been keepin’ it strong now, I’ve been keepin’ it goin’
With my mouth I’ve been sayin’ some strange things, I’ve been sayin’ some strange things
Chorus

Rose Colored Glasses

You can look at life through rose colored glasses
Where everything’s always right
But tragedy inevitably crashes in
Then only hell is insight; there’s no light; and you go blind
You can look at life with cool shades of blue
Where everything’s always night
But when some love finally comes crashin’ in
It cannot last it’s too bright, and you go blind
Bridge:
The only way to see the truth
Is mix those reds with the blues
See the sun through the rain
Feel the joy through the pain
You can look at life through rose colored glasses
Where everything’s always right
But tragedy inevitably crashes in
Then only hell is insight; there’s no light; and you go blind
So see the sun through the rain
Feel the joy through the pain; through the pain
See the sun through the rain…

Raincoat

It’s a landslide; it’s an avalanche
It’s an earthquake; it’s a hurricane
That’s what life is like
That’s what life’s like
It’s a rainstorm; it’s a tidal wave
That’s what life is like
That’s what life’s like
Put on that raincoat
Put on that smile on your face
Put on that raincoat
