about

"Songs from Montara" is a working title for the songs that I am recording in my home studio. Some will be more formal than others, and I am hoping to compile them, and others into a full length album at some point (I won't say when, because I don't want to eat my words). Enjoy!

Track Name: Patience, Young Conquistador
Patience, Young Conquistador:

Years fade swiftly, like a winter’s day,
As the sun points past the canyon, dreams fade away

Western wind winds down the path, cutting hard its way,
Trail of dust and broken back, lie in its wake

On you young Conquistador, fill your heart’s desire
Gifts of blood and innocence, progress will require

On to fill your namely due, keep your spirits higher
Fortune strikes the bold, young lad, let it stoke the fire

Fallen leaves, and rotting soil, mark this sacred land
Hazards lie in broken thought, safety never stands.

Bandages and broken hearts dot the blood-lined hill,
Patience young Conquistador, all will be revealed
