about

Well, here it is - the first product of my new psychedelic project, The Vertigo Swirl. Three songs and two instrumentals, all recorded by my lonesome in December and these first days of January. Thank you to Mike Floyd and all the artists on the homemade lofi psych blog for inspiring me to get off my butt and do some new experimental recordings.

Track Name: Welcome to My Carnival
welcome to my carnival
there's fun and there's games
and you'll recognize names that you know
as stars in my show

welcome to my carnival
my e-ticket rides
are the small suicides of the soul
they're out of control

spend your money, pay the fee
spend a short eternity in the know

welcome to my carnival
where fortunes are told
and you'll never grow old if you stay
please don't go away

welcome to my carnival
laugh at the geeks
and the numerous freaks that you see
while they're roaming free

spend your money, pay the fee
spend a short eternity in the know

welcome to my carnival
you've found the right place,
brother, and just in case you don't know
you star in my show
Track Name: Thank You Thank You
thank you for today
thank you for the past
thank you for the way
you've been first and last
it's been such a great relief
to believe in your belief
thank you thank you

thank you for the key
thank you for the cure
thank you for a me
that's less insecure
I've been feeling so serene
knowing I've the right to dream
thank you thank you

thank you for today
thank you for next year
thank you for the way
you're forever near
it's been such a change of pace
to believe in an embrace
thank you thank you
Track Name: I Get the Visions
I get the visions every day
from long ago and far away
it's been a long time coming
it's been a long time gone

I get the visions in my sleep
and try in vain to grasp the deep
it's been a long time coming
it's been a long time gone

I get the visions when I wake
but move too fast for them to take
it's been a long time coming
it's been a long time gone

I get the visions while I work
beneath the babble where they lurk
it's been a long time coming
it's been a long time gone

I get the visions while I rest
too worse for wear to be my best
it's been a long time coming
it's been a long time gone

I get the visions every day
from long ago and far away
it's been a long time coming
it's been a long time gone
