Irrelevant Truth

Irrelevant Truth

Home recordings
Pilesgrove, New Jersey

"Irrelevant Truth" is the first album of my recorded songs that ever saw the light of day. It's a rough sketchbook that was recorded in my home office with nothing but a 2-channel mixer and a year of my time. I still love the songs from this record, and several of them have been dusted off and brought back to life on succeeding albums.

Burnout Fireflies

Hey Paul I wanted to say hello
wanted to say I don't know what I'm doing
I'm just watching tv

Hey John I wanted to say goodbye
I wanted to say you don't know what you're missing
but I wish you could see

Come out of that tree
come run around with me
It's hard to believe
My faith eyes can't see
just burning out the fireflies around here

We catch them in a jar
we tell them who we are
we watch all of their light disappear

Hey Peter I wanted to say hello
I wanted to say I know just what I'm doing
but I got somewhere to be

Hey Jesus I know I'm going real slow
but I'll get there just as soon as I can
It's hard to believe
My faith eyes can't see
just burning out the fireflies around here

Between you and me my faith ain't as strong as it seems

Just Waiting

Last night I fell asleep
During my bedtime prayer
I prayed my soul to keep
Out of the devil's lair

In the quiet of the night
A whisper came to me
I reached out for the light
but still I could not see

And I am waiting here for you

Here I am just waiting
Send your servant anywhere
I'll go into the fading light
And I won't despair
For you have chosen me to go

I waited in the dark
For the voice that called to me
And wondered who you are
And what you want with me

For you have chosen me to go

And I never heard the words
But I felt you change my heart
And though the shadows turn
I'll trust in who you are

The Movie Song (IT version)

We watched Rick and Ilsa fall in love at our favorite place
And as days go by Sam just kept playing the same old song

It's just a movie
It's not like real life
Just pictures and some lights and a stage

We watched Charlie Kane lose himself with his sled
I'd build you a stage just to hear you sing again

It's just a movie
It's not like real life
Just pictures and some lights and a stage

So what are you watching
Now that we are apart
And I close my eyes
Because watching movies breaks my heart

Lyrics that were eventually removed from the song:

As days go by
We saw Salieri lose his mind and his soul
And his laugh just kept ringing in my head all day long

All day long

We watched Scarlett O'Hara fend off soldiers all day long
I'd give up Tara just to hold your hand again

Faith Hope & Peace

Faith went to church
She don't wear a flowered skirt anymore
She lost her good book
Ain't gave it a good look in a while

Some days she just forgets
How messed up people get
From reading the Bible and drinking communion wine

Some days she just lets
Angry people get
Into her body, soul, and her mind

Faith lives in palm trees
And entertains monkeys in the sun
She dresses in fig leaves
Brags about her bad deeds every night (to anyone)

Some days she just forgets
How empty people get
Believing the lies
Of everyday life

Faith Hope and Peace
But the greatest of these
Is someone else's love

Faith can't abide me
That don't surprise me anymore
When she tires of her bad deeds
She'll wish that she had thanked me (for a dress)

Though I tried my best
She don't own a flowered dress
But she don't lie to me

The Driving Song

Don't talk
Just drive
Gotta get away
Before they eat me alive

What can
I say
To ease your mind
Forget yesterday

Turn the radio on
Let's just get us gone

Where are we going I don't know
Fast as we can is just too slow
Stars in the sky will let us know
To turn the wheel
You can decide if it's left or right
Whatever you say let's just leave tonight
Stars in the sky will let us know
To turn the wheel

Let's go
For broke
The lives we leave
Are just a joke

The headlight
Will lead the way
Nobody knows

If we get past the city lights
The stars will open up our eyes
We don't need to say goodbye
Turn the wheel

Irrelevant Truth

Don't let it be
more than it seems
Just let it be
Leave the rest to me

Why won't you let it escape your mind
I need perspective
I need time
doesn't matter now
we'll work it out somehow

Just let me fall in love with you again
The only thing I never knew
The only thing I know is true
It doesn't matter now
we'll work it out somehow
Just let me fall in love with you again


Leave work at eight and I'll be home at nine
I know it's late but I'll be just in time
No need to worry or call three times
Just leave a light on

Because it's hard now
It won't be long now
But it'll be over soon

I know you think that it's an endless race
Give me some time and we'll be running the place
And I can't wait to see that look on your face

I know you're worried I've lost my mind
But if we hurry we'll be just fine

Sooner than you think is that soon enough for you
Sooner than you think if we try we'll make it through

Fairy Tale

Met lots of folk
Think it's some kind of joke
They don't know much about me

What do they know
Spent their time growing old
Someday will come and they will see

Towers and brides
Dragons and mystery
Have I asked too much to hope for these

There's just one thing I might be missing
But I'll figure that out when I get back
I'm leaving my life for dragons and fairy tales
Who knows what happens till I get back

I'll waste my life
if it means that on one night
I'll find the fairy tale for me

But if it's you I could be kissin'
There's not much you could do to me
I'd fight a fire-breathing dragon
I'd swim poseidon's cursed sea


I guess I forgot you
When things were just fine
And I guess I remembered
When things went awry

Do you regret me
A thorn in your side
Or do you see everything
In Your time?

Cause tonight my screams are whispers
And my lies are small and white
Tonight I feel like emptiness
is just a state of mine

Cause tonight I just don't need you
Like I used to
I'll be fine

Tonight I just don't need you
Like I did at 4:05

Say that you won't let me run away
But don't let me stay too long
And say that you'll hear me whenever I pray
And don't let me get this wrong

Lyrics that didn't make the final edit, but probably should have:

Tonight you know I need you
I'm a child
hear my cry
Tonight you know I need you
I need Jesus
I need life

Lonely Night

So you called
and I hung up the phone
I blew it all
You've always known I would

Tonight I waited in the park for you (old lyrics: in the produce aisle)
and I can scarce remember
a time that I liked better

I'm alone, I'm alone
It's a lonely night
I'm alright
I just can't wait to see you one more time
Then I close my eyes and remember
When we had better times

If you should
decide to change your mind
or just your heart
I'll take what I can get

If the clouds
keep you from the light
just remember who's been praying
every single night

I'm alone, I'm alone
I waited for the phone to ring
no one ever calls
So I stand by the door
and wait for someone just to knock
just a little tap on the door

I feel like I don't know what I'm about
But you I've figured out

If Ever (IT version)

If ever you feel like you're lonely
and everyone else has moved away
and somebody is on your case and
you never know what to say

I'm on your side
don't ask why
I love you
and I always will
I'm on your side

If ever you think that you're only
what somebody else chose to say
All that you love left you hanging
and you have forgotten your way

I've never left you
how could I forget you
always remember that I love you
when no one else even tries
