about

Thematically, Project Dreamery is dual-edged. The Cutting Edge (Not By Borders, Peanut Butter, etc.) is a collection of socially conscious works grounded in culture change that require a new and desperately needed perspective. These issues have run unchecked, unresolved and demand an innovative approach.

The Healing Edge (Choose To Be, etc.) are songs that inspire the process of change within and evoke the growth of the individual who, in turn, exemplify the change in the world that we all seek.

Welcome to Project Dreamery. Come dream with us.

Track Name: Not by Borders
Sing me something different
Please tear me from the mold
Give me a moment to be me
In a blink our time is over
We’re never coming back
And Love is all that saves us
From the black

I want to live not by borders
All the Earth is yours and mine
What a simple expedition for humankind

Hey you with the fear or anger
Listen to my song
We’re in this together we’re all we’ve got
And it’s hard being human
We’ve all got different walks
But if we support each other
Imagine!

I want to live not by borders
All the Earth is yours and mine
What a simple expedition for humankind

I want to live not by borders
All the Earth is yours and mine
What a simple expedition for humankind

I want to live not by borders
All the Earth is yours and mine
What a simple expedition for humankind

I want to live not by borders
All the Earth is yours and mine
What a simple expedition for humankind

I want to live not by borders
All the Earth is yours and mine
What a simple expedition for humankind
Track Name: Choose to Be
You’re a dancer if you dance
You’re a writer if you write
You’re a singer if you sing
You’re what you choose to be
You’re a waiter if you wait
You’re a hater if you hate
You’re a lover if you learn
You’re fire if you burn

I am what I choose to be

I am
Thou art
It is
'Cause we were together on this
Now apart

You’re grounded when you move
You’re greedy when you steal
Try to catch this grove
Do what you feel
You’ll never reach the end
If you choose not to begin
’Cause those who learned to fly
Have found their reason why

We are what we choose to be
We are what we choose to be

You’re a chancer if you chance
You’re a fighter if you fight
You’re a dreamer if you dream
You’re what you choose to be
You’re a leader if you care
You’re a danger if you’re strong
Embrace the awkward air
Sing me your song

We are what we choose to be
We are what we choose to be

I am
Thou art
It is
'Cause we’re back together on this
Head and heart

We are what we choose to be
We are what we choose to be
We are what we choose to be
Track Name: Peanut Butter
I’ve got two jars of peanut butter open
And I don’t know which one to choose
I’ve got two jars of peanut butter open
And I don’t know which one to choose
I’ve got two jars of peanut butter open

There’s men on TV shootin’ people in the streets
And it’s really nothing new
I know this may sound cold
But let me tell you a truth
Everyday there’s people shootin’ people right here
What can I do?

I wish I had a boat
I’d row and row and row
But no one really wants me
I’ve got nowhere else to go
I’ve got nowhere else to go

But…

I’ve got two jars of peanut butter open
And I don’t know which one to choose
I’ve got two jars of peanut butter open
And I don’t know which one to choose
I’ve got two jars of peanut butter open

I think I’ll get some bread
And I hope I don’t get shot
There’s a bullet out there just waitin’ for me
This is not the lyfe I want
This is not the lyfe I want

I’ve got two jars of peanut butter open
And I don’t know which one to choose
I’ve got two jars of peanut butter open
And I don’t know which one to choose
I’ve got two jars of peanut butter open

And...

Oh what the fuck’s the use
Track Name: Man on a Corner
Standing on a corner holding a sign
Where are you going mister
Anywhere but here
Did you think twenty years ago
That you would be standing
At the side of a highway and
Holding a sign

What do you think is gonna happen
Do you think that god will finally
Set the world to right
Or perhaps that human kindness
And a bit of luck will be
Enough to suffice

Oh oh oh oh
It’s up to me it’s up to you
Heroes are for movies not the streets

How did it come to this I’ve always feared
How someone winds up on the corner holding a sign
But mister did anyone ever tell you
You’ve got to help yourself
Or you’re gonna die

Oh oh oh oh
It’s up to me it’s up to you
Heroes are for movies not the streets
Oh oh oh oh
It’s up to me It’s up to you
Heroes are for movies not you and me

Oh mister oh please mister oh listen to me
Oh mister oh please mister oh can'tcha see

Oh oh oh oh
It’s up to me it’s up to you
Heroes are for movies not the streets
Oh oh oh oh
It’s up to me it’s up to you
Heroes are for movies
Not you and me
Track Name: Sun Dance
How the gods have pulled the darkness over our heads
There is no heaven after death it is here my friends

I see hopefilled faces young and old
Sullen smiles and bridled laughs
All living in Earth’s creation
One sun one moon and one land

So come join the fun-ness shake the blacknesss from your heart
Come celebrate the sun dance take your mind for a walk
And come join this one-ness shake the blackness from your heart
Come celebrate the sun dance take your mind for a walk

Smash the gods into the ground
Watch the war machine choke and drown
Forgive the past for it is dead
Toss the lies out of your heads
You want a change?
It’s right fucking here

So come join the fun-ness shake the blacknesss from your heart
Come celebrate the sun dance take your mind for a walk
And come join this one-ness shake the blackness from your heart
Come celebrate the sun dance take your mind for a walk

I am the shepherd I am the sheep
I am the godless I am the reap
I am the kind fuck of mock
I am the cockless cock
I am the rot in the machine
I am Machiavellian psycho fiend
I am the hammer I am the stone
I am the bane I am the gold
I am the pure I am the stained
I am the wicked I am The Change

So come join the fun-ness shake the blackness from your heart
Come celebrate the sun dance take your mind for a walk
And come join this one dance shake the blacknesss from your heart
Come celebrate the sun dance take your mind for a walk
And come join this one-ness shake the blackness from your heart
Come celebrate the sun dance take your mind for a walk
Track Name: Wicked to Roam
There was a time forgot I could fly
If I’m a bird or an eagle umm than why
Why didn’t you tell me right from the start
And save me all this wasted heart
On people and things that tear me down
On places and faces that wear a frown
On gods and rats that suck your soul
Corruption and greed and who they blow
And who they blow
And who they blow
Oh oh
I-dea i-dea oh

And

Put me on the road tonight
On a train a plane or any ride
Keep me moving
Keep me alive
Keep me ’til the day I die
To the day I die
To the day I die

’Cause I’m just here to let it out
To stand and scream and fucking shout
At all of the hate in this whole wide world
Of all the shit we fucking hurl
At the tapestry of lies
That we’ve unfurled
That we’ve unfurled
That we’ve unfurled
Oh oh
I-dea i-dea oh

And

Put me on the road tonight
On a train a plane or any ride
Keep me moving
Keep me alive
Keep me ’til the day I die
To the day I die
To the day I die

’Cause there’s always a place for the wicked to roam
There’s always a place I can call home
There’s always a place for the wicked to roam
There’s always a place I can call home
That I can call home
That I can call home
That I can call home
That I can call home
That I can call home
That I can call home
That I can call home
That I can call home
That I can call home
That I can call home
That I can call home
’Cause I can’t go home
That I can call
Ho ho home
I-dea i-dea oh

And

Put me on the road tonight
On a train a plane or any ride
Keep me moving
Keep me alive
Keep me ’til the day I die
To the day I die
To the day I die
To the day I die
To the day I die
To the day I die
To the day I die
To the day I die
To the day I die
To the day I die
To the day I die
To the day I die
To the
Day
Track Name: Dreamery
Today I feel so humble
Listening to the tunes
Of artists far beyond what I can do

And I was thinking about my future
And the guitar leaning against my bed
And really what kind of chance do we have

Then I remembered a good man said to me
Don’t worry about that just play
’Cause everything you’ve ever done you’ve done your way

So take me out to the black
Send me to the deep
I’ll never ever give up or retreat
I said
Take me out to the black
Send me to the deep
I’ll never ever give up or retreat

Because today I felt so humbled
As I listened to the tunes
Of artists far beyond what I can do
