Michael Bowerman Riverside, California

My name is Michael, and I love music. My main focus right now is actually not performing music, but rather, recording and producing it. I am starting a home recording studio named Sinnett Studio in the near future, and I am releasing an album to showcase the quality. ... more

Track Name: Blind People Still See?
The winds of weariness break down my battered tent
The will is strong, but the body has lost its intent
My days are numbered; the years that I've spent
My tired heart looks for a new start

It's hard to get a grip when your hands are covered in oil
Why is our patience simmering at a slow boil?
The yearning of the heart is now in turmoil
We've lost our way, now it's time to face

Do we close our eyes to what cries out to us?
Do we shut off inside because the truth is too much?
My, my, the tangled webs we spin

Do we mean what we say, do we say what we mean?
The answer to our thoughts may be obscene
Where is our focus at, and why exactly do you dream?
Perception may fade; that's just how we're made

Do we close our eyes to what cries out to us?
Do we shut off inside because the truth is too much?
My, my, the tangled webs we spin

Dilated pupils of emerald continue in perplexity
The urgency of the situation gains in intensity
Realization is the first step towards abnormality
Once you go blind, can you really still see?

Do we close our eyes to what cries out to us?
Do we shut off inside because the truth is too much?
My, my, the tangled webs we spin
Track Name: Just Right
Across the mountains, above the lights, the calm, dark sky arose
Clouds drifted sleepily away from me to a place I could not supposed
Wind brushed on midnight leaves; revelation unseen
Then and there, I realized what it is to be free

The sky was open and full of lights unfolded
The feeling I had on that night could not be molded
Caught up with my life and ran alongside
For what it's worth, it's be just right

When I learned to let it go and look forward anew
My troubles still remained strong, but my hope shone through
I loved her much, and I miss her so; but life still moved on
What it took was an open sky and a faith of where I belong

The sky was open and full of lights unfolded
The feeling I had on that night could not be molded
Caught up with my life and ran alongside
For what it's worth, for what it's worth, it's been quite a ride

Pain can come at any time, but love arrives as strong
Don't fall victim to self pity; put your faith where it belongs

The sky was open and full of lights unfolded
The feeling I had on that night could not be molded
Caught up with my life and ran alongside
For what it's worth, it's be just right
Track Name: Reality Check (Long Time)
Been a long time, my friend, so nice to see you again
Though we've never really left; it seems we've been separated too long
Where have you been? I missed you, why did you leave? I thought of you
I guess that doesn't matter now; you're back and that's what really counts
I hope you found what you looked for
Or realized what you looked for was found
I can see it in your eyes now; the haze is gone, your mind's finally unwound

Though it may not seem so, know that I'm here for you
Know that I make mistake and that you do, too

Twisted words from tangled mouths; they led you astray, didn't they?
One finger led to another, and that's the one that led you away
My, my, the weary words, the ones who cannot see
Your world didn't end with a bang or a whimper you learned
But rather just changed course; I'm so glad, so glad that you returned

Though it may not seem so, know that I'm here for you
Know that I make mistake and that you do, too
Track Name: Remember
I remember when I felt so alone in September
Fear held me down with on one around to comfort
So far from home, in a world unknown; I lived in silence
Didn't think I'd make it; no money, little food and assurance

I say that we wait, and things will work out
I know when we go crazy it doesn't help

Do you remember all the hard times we fought together?
They seemed to drag on for what seemed a lifetime too long
I lost my job and confidence so quickly
The woman I loved I couldn't afford to marry

I say that we wait, and things will work out
I know when we go crazy it doesn't help

This life can try to snuff the joy inside
Don't you dare let it go without a fight

I say that we wait, and things will work out
I know when we go crazy it doesn't help
Track Name: Love Lives
I know I said something stupid again
No, I don't know why I'm this way
You're a treasure to me, though my actions seem
To go towards harsh things to say
This is how love truly lives
Makes right what's wrong and simply gives

How can you say that you love me anyway?
My mind can't comprehend

Now it's your turn and the roles have been changed
Frustration comes up strong
What causes this fight? And no, you're not right
But to walk away is just wrong
This is how love truly lives
Makes right what's wrong and simply gives

How can you say that you love me anyway?
My mind can't comprehend
What do you see, what is it in me
That you would give me your hand?

This won't be perfect, but it won't be fake
This will never be a showdown
It will be a lesson to give and not take
No anger left at sundown

How can you say that you love me anyway?
My mind can't comprehend
What do you see, what is it in me
That you would give me your hand?
Track Name: 18-22
I want you to be real with me
When it hurts, I'll show you how I bleed
I'm young enough to know that I'm too jaded
Bitter at the selfish creation that you've persuaded
Wind bears down on me, engulfing all that I see
Wind bears down on me, simply shaken up to be

You know you've got my trust; what you say I'll believe
Naivete, naivete, it defines me
Forgive me for thinking that my friends are ones to keep
Forgive me to take my heart to sleep
Wind bears down on me, what's really happening?
Wind bears down on me, can I glimpse into your dream?

Frustration sits in; I'm lost in it
Your words reflect my actions
It's foreign to me, what your mouth is saying
Maybe I'm too dumb to see?
Wind bears down on me, perspective cleansing
Wind bears down on me, here I still will be

For you, here will I be
For you, here will I be
Waiting, oh so patiently
For you, here will I be
