about

New White Trash Venice, California

THE NEW WHITE TRASH IN THE POST-PARADIGM ERA
Mining a new groove, and with a kind of rough grace, DOUBLEWIDE, the 37 song, 2 CD set from the NEW WHITE TRASH, chronicles the slide of the former American middle-class down a steep and slippery slope to the New White Trash, a place impartial to race, religion, creed or color. ... more

Track Name: Long Cold Winter
LONG COLD WINTER

High sky silver at dawn contains
Chemical trails in the Autumn
And like that old Italian saying says
Everything all goes to the bottom

Gonna be a long cold winter without end
Gonna be a long hot summer, my friend

We were younger then and we were fooled
By credit cards, shopping malls, Santa Claus and bankoramas
Now Sitting Bull is sitting a-way-out on a range
Waiting on a change to come and rearrange
He'll wait forever

Gonna be a long, cold winter, my friend
Gonna be a long, hot summer, without end

Pen the page in the novel
And surrender to the change of a consciousness in chains
Witchy woman begins to blow
Do the warriors have their paint
Are they sturdy in their saddle
Riding into battle
A mask to hides their faces

From his grave Thomas Paine is rolling in his old bones
Ghostly by the fire with Jefferson alone in old Virginia
My seven sisters hear how the night dives in
And it's getting late, no dawn in sight again

Gonna be a long, cold winter, my friend
Gonna be a long, hot summer without end

Track Name: Seven Billion Strong
7 BILLION STRONG

Young soldiers fighting in a war
They don’t know whom they’re fighting for
Men in blue on the billy-beat
Men in suits on every street
A valley deeper than the ocean to cross
Find your way when the way is lost
The middle’s gone between the two
The ninety-nine and the one of you

Time will take it for you
If you don’t take a stand
Occupy everything on every land
And by the way we are 7 billion strong
Minus one percent, it’s time to move on

We’re sleeping people on downtown trains and lawns
We’re sweeping people down the drain so long
One man hordes and holds in greed
While children die hungry face down in the street

Time will take it for you
If you don’t take a stand
Occupy everything on every land
And by the way we are 7 billion strong
Minus one percent, it’s time to move on

Every page you turn – time to move

Time will take it for you
If you don’t take – don’t take a stand

7 billion strong

Never mind nothing when everything’s in play
Don’t hold your nose the smell won’t go away
The line is bold and in plain view
Between the ninety-nine and the one of you

Time will take it for you
If you don’t take a stand
Occupy everything on every land
And by the way we are 7 billion strong
Minus one percent, it’s time to move on

Track Name: Foreign Soldiers
FOREIGN SOLDIERS

Give me a clue
How do they start
These wars that we choose

Someone’s always fighting for
The profits of another war
Betting long on raking those dollars in
On your back and blood and you won’t win
From another nod, another wink
Another lie to satisfy
(Like night and day)
Comes and goes like night and day

There’s a line in the sand you got blood on your hands
You who start it – War

Foreign soldiers fighting in the square
So many soldiers
Who brought them there
There’s a damage done beyond what seems
The love of god is looking mean

Someone’s always fighting for
The profits of another war
Betting long on raking those dollars in
On your back and blood and you won’t win
From another nod, another wink
Another lie to satisfy
(Like night and day)
Comes and goes like night and day

Give me a clue
How do they start
These wars that we choose

Something’ stirring in the air
A door ajar that leads to there
A kick aside
Something’s stirring in the air
Two sides – two sides – two sides
War is ajar inside of there

Someone’s always fighting for
The profits of another war
Betting long on raking those dollars in
On your back and blood and you won’t win
From another nod, another wink
Another lie to satisfy
(Like night and day)
Comes and goes like night and day

Track Name: Sun Of Your Love
SUN OF YOUR LOVE

By now you know the first and last verse of the lie
The one that holds you and keeps you paralyzed
By now you know the last and first name of the one
Big brother wraps your fear and burns a shadow in the sun
In the sun of your love

In the sun of your love

No one needs a reason to need reason anymore
A people turn away from why and who they are
When everything is paralyzed, the rise and then a stall
No one’s going anywhere and a great shadow’s gonna fall
In the sun of your love

In the sun of your love

My friend the time has come to see who’s holding cards
For years we’ve measured life in yard by bloody yard
But now the sun is up and shadows flee in dread
Liberation’s dawning rays see a rainbow sky instead

In the sun of your love

Track Name: Wanted Man
WANTED MAN

Men in black surrounding your home
Door to door looking for the
One and they say it’s you
No word on why or what for
In the age of authority
No one goes there anymore

And now they say you’re a wanted man
But they won’t say by whom
And now they say you’re a wanted man
In the Age of Authority

Welcome to the new machine
We know where to find your
Child for our new vaccine
Welcome to the end of the road
There’s no more ‘there’ anymore
Only one more end in store

And now they say you’re a wanted man
But they won’t say by whom
And now they say you’re a wanted man
In the Age of Authority

Flying drones are coming home
And the man in the blue suit
Wants his money back (from you)
Talking trash about collecting your bones
And how you’ll be dying – dying – dying
Of a heart attack

And now they say you’re a wanted man
But they won’t say by whom
And now they say you’re a wanted man
In the Age of Authority

Track Name: Inner Reach
INNER REACH

All the streetlights surround me
In the wall to wall prison of my city
Flickering dirty neon over
Alleys mean and dirty streets
While my neighborhood is torn down around me
Too many people on the zombie streets
And the sirens make an eerie sound around me
People look before they speak

It’s getting hard in the inner reach
Ever strange beneath the streets
All around where all the light waves meet
And dance
In secret

Kids with toys haunt the hallways
Stuffing secrets up my sleeve
And the only country club around here
Is the cold cement under my feet
And i feel sometimes like a drowning man in a den of drunken thieves
While this world goes on in a whirl around me
Makes me cold, makes me hot, makes me freeze

It’s getting hard in the inner reach
Ever strange beneath the streets
All around where all the light waves meet
And dance
In secret

And we enter into
The Age of Authority

When explanations don’t explain
And conclusions don’t conclude
When answers don’t answer and questions don’t matter
And everything has gone so rude
All the stars incline but don’t insist
And everything’s done in a dancing twist
All around where all the light waves meet and dance

It’s getting hard in the inner reach
Ever strange beneath the streets
All around, where all the light waves meet
And dance
In secret

And we enter into
The Age of Authority

Track Name: Drifted
DRIFTED

One, number one, you got the laws of the land
Two, number two, you got the drives of a man
Three, number three, you got a tug-o-war struggle
Two sides of one heart spells trouble

Wow to the ships that sails
And those without an anchor in a storm
Wow to he who sails without a look beyond

Called out your name to the four-quartered earth
To the twelve-quartered wind in my search
Back of beyond I’ve come to your eye
Blackened the dawn and told many lies

Wow to the ships that sails
And those without an anchor in a storm
Wow to he who sails without a look beyond

Curse this bloody placed I watched
My sail turn to dust
My rudder turn to rust
My compass spin and stop
At a point where I could not

Caught arrows rip the skin of my flesh
Dried with a torch the blood of my breast
And when all that was not quite enough
I doubled my strength walking with trouble

Wow to the ships that sails
And those without an anchor in a storm
Wow to he who sails without a look beyond

Curse this bloody placed I watched
My sail turn to dust
My rudder turn to rust
My compass spin and stop
At a point where I could not

Track Name: Bird's Eye View
BIRD’S EYE VIEW

He said,
“The only damn road you should take is the one you choose to walk”

Walking down a dusty road one someday afternoon
Ran across a man with eyes like starry moons
Like two wild children playing
We heard our stories told
And voices sang this word about the road

He said,
The only damn road you should take is the one you choose to walk
The only damn road you should take is the one you choose to walk

We walked down golden carpet made from an endless sandy flow
And fortunes spoke out gently from a sky blue yellow glow

Track Name: Free From
FREE FROM

Set your sights high
Reach for the sky
Touch the unfound
Don’t be denied
Paint my eyes a different color
Paint my face another race
Run my fingers through the water
Sacred water, give me grace

I am free from fear and worry, son
I am free from all greed and hate
I am free from fear and worry, son
I am free from all greed and hate
(and you should be too before it’s too late)

Sacred sun make wine from my
Heart and bones and grow these grapes
Hey Mother, grant me ground
Plant a field and crops I’ll raise
I’m not going
I’m not moving
I’m not leaving where I’m from
I belong here
Next to you here
Holy Mother, Father Sun

I am free from fear and worry, son
I am free from all greed and hate
I am free from fear and worry, son
I am free from all greed and hate
(and you should be too before it’s too late)

I am free from fear and worry, son
I am free from all greed and hate…

Track Name: Between You And Me
BETWEEN YOU AND ME

The line is drawn
And here we are
On either side
Of the one and only thing
Between you and me

Place your bets here
Right down the line
Love is in your head
And in your heartbeat
The line is drawn
And here we are
On either side
Of the one and only thing
Between you and me

Do dreams come true
Oh yes they do
Through a child’s eye
You can see everything
Between you and me

Track Name: Mad Forgetter
MAD FORGETTER

Living one day at a time in the age of decline
I want to remember but I’m the mad forgetter
Kind of like Berlin in 1932
When you were pushed to the floor you knew what to do

I only ever want to turn you on
Like a switch
And I wake up dizzy over you

Fall down – When I fall down
In the tunnel of your love
I don’t know how to get back out from how you make me feel
And I wake up dizzy over you

I’m the mad forgetter forgetting your face
But I still remember the sweet smell of your neck
I can’t be healed - My wounds aren’t real
My fangs are fake – My blood is paint

Fall down – When I fall down
In the tunnel of your love
I don’t know how to get back out from how you make me feel
And I wake up dizzy over you

I forgot what I heard – I forgot what I watched
I forgot what I read - But I can’t forget you
I forgot what I heard – Forgot what I watched
But I can’t forget you
I forgot what I read – Forgot what I did
But I can’t forget you – Oh no

And I wake up dizzy over you

I’m the mad forgetter and I’m telling you how
Crimes have been committed
And I wake up dizzy over you
I’m the mad forgetter and I’m telling you how
Crimes have been committed
And I wake up dizzy over you

Fall down – When I fall down
In the tunnel of your love
I don’t know how to get back out from how you make me feel
And I wake up dizzy over you

Track Name: Ruin It All
RUIN IT ALL

Hey you
We’ve got to push it through
I know it’s hard to get it done
But now the devil’s due

Hey man
We’ll write a solid plan
Just because your numbers in the big machine
Don’t mean you really can

Come clean – why so mean
Why you got to ruin it – all

Under all that blue
You can hardly tell
That you’re really feeling very well

Come clean – why so mean
Why you got to ruin it – all

Ruin it all

Oh wow
Can you show me how
Even though things are peachy keen
You rock that furrow brow
Oh why not
Let’s give it what we got
And we can figure out the whole damn thing
All at once

Come clean – why so mean
Why you got to ruin it – all

Ruin it all

Pull back the veil and you’ll see
You’ll see me

Track Name: Fell Into
FELL INTO

To get out of my way
I ran into your room
In another place and time
When the world was twice the size
And everything was new
I set out for adventure
And fell into your eyes

And I fell in two
Fell into your eyes

Trying to remember from a place I barely knew
Yea – I was a sailor
Do you recognize – You asked me if I did
Know something of the mystery
And I said yes -But not like this
You said this way – On down
And I fell into your eyes

And I fell in two
Fell into your eyes

I read ‘OnThe Road’ and it ran right through me
Then I read ‘Go’ and that was that
Get back yo-yo

Have I ever hurt you
You asked me with a kiss
And something had to give
Inside my soul
My fate was on the line – You sang along like this
My love is what you miss – Is what you said
Inside my soul

And I fell into
Fell into your eyes

Track Name: Calling After Me
CALLING AFTER ME

High hanging clouds yet the sky won’t rain
In everything I hear your name
No one can distract me – Am I headed for ruin
With you at the red light
You and a blood red moon

Calling after me
I hear your voice
Calling after me

Been here all day and yesterday too
Been asking for directions to the heart of you
My mystery is when you smile and love me – oh
Oh the way you love me
My mystery is you

Calling after me
I hear your voice
Calling after me

I am
You are
The mystery

There’s a storm flag flying in a hurricane
It’s in my heart and in my veins
No one can distract me – Am I headed for ruin
You at the red light
You and a blood red moon

You are
I am
Your mystery

Track Name: Dirty Love
DIRTY LOVE

We clean the world with our dirty love
Like a fire it burns it into ashes of love
I can feel it bubble away
What needs to be gone
Soaring in like a siren song
Taking us where we need to be
Flying high and in between
It’s too high
It’s too low
Where’s this beat supposed to go
We clean the world with our dirty love

When we’re shining hard darkness hasn’t a chance
Can you fell it deep in your bones
Tell the truth – do you
Everyone who’s waiting now
It’s too high
It’s too low
Where’s this beat supposed to go
We clean the world with our dirty love

We clean the world with our dirty love

Round and round the world we go
It’s too high
It’s too low
Where’s this beat supposed to go
We clean the world with our dirty love

We clean the world with our dirty love

Track Name: All In
MY EYES HAVE SEEN

Didn’t do it
Didn’t do it for love
Didn’t do it for fame
Didn’t do it for money
Didn’t do it, didn’t do it that way

I only did it for change
Only one way to go
I only did it for change
The name of the game

I know you
And by now you know me
I ain’t no sweetheart
Of the lie-telling crowd
Too much glitter, too many neon figures
Too much politic, too late for all of it

I only did it for change
Only one way to go
I only did it for change
The name of the game

You are
I am
We are
Only pockets of change

Got caught up in something
Got caught up in the running
Got caught up, got caught up in a race
Got caught up, got caught up in the wars
And always, always knew what side to take

I only did it for change
Only one way to go
I only did it for change
The name of the game

I am you

HEART ON MY SLEEVE

I’m letting you know - right now
Like you don’t already - how
You know I let it show - and wear
Wear my heart on my -
Wear my heart on my sleeve for you

I’m letting you know - right now
I’m crazy for you - and how
From my head to my toes - on down
My heart wants you -
My heart wants you to know

I’m crazy for you
MY heart wants you to know
