Heaphone Jack- The Hurt

The Hurt,
This song is loosely about an argument between to friends that happened two minutes before the person thinking the lyrics gets run over buy a truck and his brains get squashed out of his head. Most of the lyrics are just jumbled thought between the person dieing and the person still alive watching this happen. It is a reflection of how I think that moment may fell.

  1. Getting in a heated argument with someone and watching them die before you get to apologize.
  2. Being so pissed off at someone and forgetting to pay attention to what you are doing. Hence the crossing of the road with out looking.

Please enjoy the lyrics!

you know better,,,i got some beer
come over here ,,,your old shits in the road
i have no more can't tell you why
over shown pride over grown in mind
in my mind yeehhh......
relive, relive yourself from the bend
no i'm not alright,no,your over grown'

what just happened,,,,you are dead,,
your mind is gone,,,,withers gone,it's gone
into your head,,,
you are dead,,you are dead
we'll lend you the stone grab your on your own
your ask shuckeye go,,but i'm gone in my soul
i wreck, true men know,,i feel,,, somethings good
a wreck in my mind,,you can't take yourself
you can't,, rip it in half you can't,, rip it in half
you can't,,, rip it in half you can't,,, rip it in half
you can't,,, rip it in half you can't rip it man
rough shim rock sham!!!
enter your soul,,soul,,in your soul
twisted you in,,in half

Grey Wolf

Well here we go just as promised I have the first lyrics from the song Grey Wolf and I have included the story behind the song as well. Just a little added bonus to kick off the lyrical journey of all the Funkyhairman & Headphone Jack songs in no particular order.

Grey wolf

Look in my eyes
The feelings inside

Look in my eyes
There’s no place to hide

Let’s walk together
Let’s talk together
Must give without want
Without want

I love you
I hate you
I’d exonerate you
From the evil inside me
That would surely betray you
It’s cold
It’s so cold

The story behind Grey wolf

I had this children’s record when I was a little boy growing up in Salinas California. The story from what I remember was called Grey Wolf, who was not the main character, but was the dream guider for the main character Barrington. Barrington was a bunny that was lost in the snow with no family of his own. He was in search for a place and family with the other creatures in the forest. The problem was he wasn’t like the other creatures and they wouldn’t accept him. He couldn’t climb trees so the squirrels would not let him live with them and he couldn’t swim so the beavers would not let him live with them. So he started to get cold and tired that is when the Grew Wolf appeared with his silvery cold eyes to give him some comforting advice. He convinced Barrington to give each of the animals of the forest a gift with no strings attached. So Barrington went out and gave the squirrels some nuts and the beavers some twigs and that made him feel a little warmer inside and a little less alone. As he hopped away from his lat stop of gifting wonderment he spotted a lonely field mouse lost in the snow. Barrington asked the field mouse where he was going and the mouse to told Barrington he was lost and could not find his family and was very cold and afraid. Barrington asked the mouse to crawl under his warm fir for the night to get some sleep and in the morning he could find his way home. The mouse was very grateful and took refuge under the warm bunny for the night. The next morning when the mouse woke up and the sun was shining he crawled out from under Barrington and noticed that somewhere in the night the bunny had died. You see Barrington had no family and no friends the only thing he had was a gift with no strings attached. That gift was to sacrifice his life for other to live.

I have heard some say the Bunny was like Jesus and the wolf was like the father or God. I don’t really see it that way but I can see how they would. I would assume that who ever wrote that story probably had something like that in mind. I liked the story because it relates to the power that I think we all possess. The heart felt ability to help others in need, without want for any ourselves. Often times so many people give their donations to reap the tax benefits, or for self gratification and political gain. Like to them charity is some kind of popularity contest. I would guess most of the time it doesn’t matter to the ones in need but sometimes the stings are too thick and it really isn’t worth it to take the charity. Hopefully if I ever have to help you never know it was me. I think it’s cool when a stranger helps you out then just walks away. It isn’t a big deal we all need someone sometimes the world is just too difficult to get through all alone.

New Stuff

WOW! There is so much in the works as always now I feel like I have to go back and shore up some stuff. What do you mean you may ask? Well I will tell you.

  1. Getting all the stuff put together for the new Funkyhairman Album Tito Sunshine all the tracks and the artwork are ready. All that is left is the production of the actual Cd's and the cover. This album has about 23 songs and spans of two Cd's.
  2. The relaunch of It is changing over from being a part of the site to it's own thing.
  3. The lyrical unraveling of all my released work up to date. This is exciting in the fact that I have never released any of the lyrics to my songs and I plan to do so on this very blog one song at a time over the next year. (So far between funkyhairman and Headphone Jack there have been 3 albums released containing about 40 songs and if you include Tito Sunshine it bring that number closer to 63).

So you can see there is work yet to be done and about time to get to it.

My Space - Headphone Jack

Jackya Jukebox and I have been attacking the Myspace page Link we managed to wrangle up some more pals to help promote our latest album "Headphone Jack". Everyone if you want to listen to some singles of that album there on there. There is also a bonus track on the Headphone Jack myspace page called "shotinthedark". That song (shotinthedark) will appear on our upcoming album that has yet to be named. There is no date yet set for the albums release but we will be changing out various songs that are in the works on the Headphone Jack Myspace page from time to time.

If you like what you hear you can buy our self titled album @ CD Baby.

Also I will be competing some of those songs against other similar music LOL on Our Stage in March I will write a different blog for that. Thanks for reading cy-ber peps.
