about

Kevin White

After a stint in Special Ops, working covertly in the world's most dangerous hot spots, a chance meeting with a Zulu medicine man launched an interest in music.

For the healing power of song, as evidenced by Coca Cola's "We'd like to teach the world to sing", followed up by Pepsi's "The world sings out of tune", is instrumental-not in a literal sense, but a musical one; literally. Please enjoy.

Track Name: Happens Every Time
Happens Every Time

Well they say
You never know
I guess I never ever did
But how the hell could I show
Everything we never did?
Cause every time you get up slower
And you begin to sigh ...
"Was this really worth the trouble or ...
was it wasted time?"
And you find
It happens every time

They told me they said
You would never believe me
I thought I'd never ever see the day that
You would get up and leave me
I thought you'd never ever ever slip away
Track Name: Orayo
Orayo

Orayo
Why don’t you tell me where you’re going
… and where have you been?
Don’t you see me hanging on?

My Orayo
I just don’t know

I’d like to see you again
But I just really don’t know when

My Orayo

What did I say to push you away?
What did I say to push you away?

My Orayo

And Orayo?
Why don’t you tell me where you’re going?
… and where have you been?
Why don’t you see me hanging on?

My Orayo
I just don’t know
Track Name: Trip to Nowhere
The Road to Nowhere

Mama wants a divorce
Daddy wants one too
With all this love surrounding
It’s a wonder we got through

And Mama’s in the kitchen
Yeah, she’s cooking with the Soaps
Meanwhile Daddy’s at the office
While us kids are smoking dope

We’re on a trip to nowhere
Wonder what we’re going to do?
On a trip to nowhere
Maybe I will go with you?

Yeah, I’ve seen it all the time
Loneliness confounds
Folks remaining strangers
Hiding hearts in deeper grounds

And somewhere in the back of my mind
I’ve seen this all before
People always running
Never knowing where they’re going

Yeah, they’re on a trip to nowhere
Wonder what they’re going to do
… and maybe just surviving
Really counts for something too?

Yeah, it’s true.
It’s true.
Track Name: Lover Who Won't Go Home
Lover that won’t go home

Met a girl in a club near Boston
Asked her nice “Do you come here often?”
She just smiled like I should know better

Icy Smile
Harder than a stone

I find the lovers that won’t go home
The lovers that won’t go home

So I approached from another angle
“Think I’m more than you can handle?”
She just laughed … said,
“Keep on dreaming.”

Pretty please
Just throw this dog a bone

Don’t be a lover that won’t go home
A lover that won’t go home

I said
“C’mon girl. I’m not that scary”

She showed her ring.
“Damn, she’s married”

That’s just my luck
I find the lovers that won’t go home

You’re the lover that won’t go home
Yeah … you.

Won’t go home.
Going home.
Track Name: Don't Sleep Your Life Through
Don’t Sleep Your Life Through

Bye Bye
I don’t know why
I even try
I’ve found the floor
But what for?

Woman
You can eat those dreams
Squeeze them hard
They’ll come true
It seems
But I wanted more

I tried
But all I got was alibis
I’ve seen the show
Now I know

So woman
You can keep those dreams
Squeeze them hard
‘Til they break their seams
Cause I wanted more

Don’t sleep your life through, dearest
You could slumber ‘til morning
And wouldn’t that be boring?
Don’t sleep your life through

Woman
You can keep those dreams
Squeeze the hard
They’ll come true, it seems
Still … I wanted more …
Track Name: Colours of the Day
You get up early
And have a real good morning
Sipping your tea
And watching the dawn's sunrise
The break of day
Still brings the evening's warning
As the colours of the day
Begin to fade
When the colours of the day
Fade away
It's okay

'Cause another day
Will bring another sunrise
And temporary worries
End each day
Remember this
If you're ever down and lonely
And the colours of your day
Begin to fade
When the colours of your day
Fade away

It's okay
And another day
Will bring another sunrise
For temporary worries
End each day
Remember this
If you ever feel you're drowning
And the colours of your day
Begin to fade
When the colours of your day
Fade away
Track Name: Vote
Show me that a vote still matters
Show it's not for show
For it seems that each November
Winds of change delivers status quo

Are elections thin illusions?
Sadly, it seems so
Pick any person ...
... it doesn't matter
For nothing's done when they get down
to Washington

Where cut and run
Is all about the spin
They just pass the time
In cashier lines
When others lose we win

Marching lockstep
Gets you places
Special interests go ...
Campaigns serve their moneyed masters
... exactly how the people lost control

Wait ...

Candidates all promise change
And they claim they're the ones who will change things
What exactly have they changed?
Nothing changes
When money reigns

It's tme to end the party's party
and turn off remote control
It's time to take cash out of power
And the time for change starts now
Pop the special business favors
The U.S. can't afford them

Time to restore public power

Time to send the message when we vote
Track Name: All Those Lessons We've Forgotten
All Those Lessons We've Forgotten
Yeah I don’t find
That there are any shorter welfare lines
Yeah I don’t find
There’s much a difference
After all
A wall’s a wall
... and they’re all the same

Watch the rich keep getting richer as a wider chasm grows

Yeah you think we'd all know better
All those lessons we've forgotten
Piraticians making money
... as we reap all that they sow.

Sometimes symptomatic surface
belies sycophantic service
Why assert "We are deserving"
When in fact you stole the show

Yeah I don’t find
There’s any difference after all
Both take their toll
And we wind up the same

It don't matter who you vote for because money bought their souls

Yeah you’d think we’d all know better
All those lessons we’ve forgotten
Just in case you fell asleep
The Inner party’s in control

Current symptomatic problems
Stem from sycophantic service
Starting wars can be distracting
When in fact you stole the show

It’s gotta stop
Oh yeah, it’s gotta stop
Oh, whoever thought they'd be so bold
Who's on a roll?
Who's on the dole?

Who stole the show?
Turn on the light when it hits home ...
Track Name: Steppin' Out
Steppin’ Out

Hey old lady … have you had enough?
Now don’t say, “Maybe.”
Or I’m going to call your bluff

Well, I can’t see it
Nothing gets that good
Be a sugar baby
Yes, I know that you would
At least if you could

You see? We’re steppin’ out
On our own

Somewhere I think somehow wires got crossed
It just seems lately somehow we got lost
Yeah I can’t see the daylight in the dark
Yeah sometimes I think you’ve got to walk the walk
… and not talk the talk

Yes we’re steppin’ out
On our own

When heads go spinning all around the room
Yeah … ya gotta go soon
Yeah … life gets crazy ‘round and ‘round it goes
And a-when and a-where and a-how it stops?
Nobody knows
That’s just how it goes

And you know what else shows?

We’re steppin’ out
On our own
Track Name: Outrageous
Outrageous
When I realized I could stay no longer
As I knew I must be on my way
Broken hearts when mended
Will grow stronger
… and I hoped that I’d get there some day

When you meet someone
You greet their sunshine
Hiding darker shadows
In shade
Hard to see around bright smiles
Hard to see the outline of the strange

But I learned who you are
And it was outrageous

I once thought that love could conquer most things
I even talked my fears away
But there comes a moment when you feel
That to feel again
You’ve got to change

For I saw who you are
And it was outrageous

It was a hell of a time (Yes. It was)
Just a hell of a time (Yes. It was)
It was a hell of a time (Yes. It was)
So I changed everything
Yes I changed everything
I so changed everything
Not to walk in a shadow

No.

I don’t walk behind you any more
I don’t walk behind you any more
I don’t walk behind you any more
I don’t walk behind you any more

‘Cause that’s oh so bizarre … and oh so outrageous
