  • Watching old home movies, the seeds so evident
    Little did I know back then what my tapping fingers meant
    A compulsive urge to hum a tune, to touch a piano key
    In every sound and rhythm scape, I found a piece of me

    The picture began to become more clear,
    My purpose more firmly grounded
    The day I sat at my brother's drums,
    Picked up his sticks and pounded
    I felt the ceiling open up, heart and mind were lifted
    This primal force convincing me, my goals in life had shifted

    Then I learned a few guitar chords just to seal the deal
    The power of music I could not ignore, the surge inside
    Me real
    I plucked away at Misfits' tapes 'til I could play along
    Then came the happiest day I've known- when I wrote my first song

    A few interruptions since, I'm back where I belong-
    Pen and paper, sticks and strings, the quest for the
    Perfect song
