about

These are the songs that I wrote as part of February Album Writing Month in 2015. FAWM is an online community of musicians and lyricists that try to write 14 songs in the 28 days of February. I have a number of collaborators across the globe that I write songs with and it is so much fun... Check it out at fawm.org

about

ZeCoop Kalamazoo, Michigan

I love playing music and keep learning new instruments. My songs are in a wide range of styles, from indie-rock to surf, to folk to rock to electronic... I never know. I record at home in a studio I put together in a spare room. I work (via the web) with a lot of vocal/lyric collaborators from all over the world.

Track Name: Wings (ft Liz Frencham)
Wings (Liz Frencham)

Time
waits for no one
And no one waits for me
And who are you to define
what I have to live for?
I've lived forty years
Nothing here to see

If I could carve a pair of wings
out of these chips that crush my shoulders
I could fly so far from all that I’ve done
So far from who I've become

Time
waits for no one
I am no one
Time please set me free
Resigned to this slow growing ache until I break
You can keep this life
There's nothing good for me

If I could carve a pair of wings
out of these chips that crush my shoulders
I could fly so far from all that I’ve done
So far from who I've become

(Just take your time)
I’ve tried and tried to walk this crazy wire line
(It all takes time)
I’m not a circus athlete and I’m disinclined to meet your expectations
(It all takes time)
Reflect your safe projections
(Don’t waste my time)
I’m bored with your protection

Time
waits for no one
And no one waits for me
And who are you to define
what I have to live for?
You haven't done a single thing for me
Track Name: Survival (ft Wobbie Wobbit)
Owner
"Right... won't be long. You be good. You be a good dog!"

Dog:
With that, you walk out of the door
You're not coming home anymore
You've just up and left and just abandoned me
Never to return I'm sure
Now I'm all alone in the flat
Just me and the cat
When I was a pup I was a street dog scavenger
What can I get at?

Now you've gone, it's all about survival
No time to sit around and cry
I cannot count on your arrival
You've just left me here to starve and die

Right... let's have a look in the bin
There's a bag with some leftovers in...
Let's spread it out and see what we are dealing with
I can get more out of that tin!
You think that loaf of bread is safe there?
I can reach it if I jump on the chair
I can get the lid off a peanut butter jar
But I can't reach up there, it's not fair!

Now you've gone, it's all about survival
No time to sit around and cry
I cannot count on your arrival
You've just left me here to starve and die

(a plot is devised)

Ooooh... crunchy-munchy cat food!
Let's eat it all now
You don't know where your next meal is
We might be dead by then

Now I hear the click of the door
I thought that you were gone forever-more
Look what the cat did, he's such a naughty boy
Can I have biscuit?? - for the trauma...
Track Name: Troublemaker (ft Leslie Hudson)
I was never very far
From being on my own
From growing up alone

I just never had the time
For people my own age
I always turned the page

Blood and magic in my veins
You don’t know how it pains me knowing
Flood unfathomed it remains
And when I think it wanes
It’s flowing

I didn’t ask to be a sorceress-child
Whose mother was to secrecy sworn
I chose the colour of my hair
To match my temperament
‘Cause I was born a troublemaker

I take after my old man
I learned to use a blade
‘Cause warriors are made

I will fight until I fall
But I will never tire
My will is my desire

Mud is ground into my skin
The clothing that I’m in is bloodstained
Crud from everywhere I’ve been
And every gallant win
So untamed

I didn’t ask to be a sorceress-child
Whose mother was to secrecy sworn
I chose the colour of my hair
To match my temperament
‘Cause I was born a troublemaker

I have never been afraid
To stand against the crowd
To speak my mind aloud

I have never been a maid
A damsel or a prize
I don’t do well with lies

Why did you not tell the truth?
I never asked for proof, I trusted
You may sigh whenever I’m aloof
But don’t blame it on youth
It’s rusted

I didn’t ask to be a sorceress-child
Whose mother was to secrecy sworn
I chose the colour of my hair
To match my temperament

No, I never asked to be a sorceress-child
Whose mother was to secrecy sworn
I chose the colour of my hair
To match my temperament
‘Cause I was born
I was born a troublemaker
Track Name: Fire and Blood (ft Stacy Koviak-Davison)
you were born from the ashes
and I do not fear the flame
together we will unleash
and break the wheel in their game
and to those who may try
to stand in our way
you will wish you had never...

moving forward with conviction
never questioning why
as we take to the sky

climb on, climb on
we are racing faster than my breath can catch
fire
fire, fire
fire, fire

burn it down, burn it down
burn it all down to the ground
we'll be flying high up above
you'll never know
you'll never know this kind of love
this kind of love
this kind of love

while we are building this army
growing stronger every stride
there are those who will betray us
do not wish us alive
trust no one but each other
this is the way it has to be
it is because I love you
that I can set you free
and you return to me stronger
each and every time

they cannot harness our fire
as we take to the sky

we will not stop until we get where we are going
we will not stop until we reach where we are going

climb on, climb on
we are racing faster than my breath can catch
fire, fire
burn it down
burn it all down to the ground
'cause we'll be flying high above

hold on, hold on
the world is spinning down below
but we will fight
we will fight on
it's all we've ever known

we'll cross the desert
find our way across the narrow sea
nothing will stop us from becoming who it is
we're meant to be

fire, fire
burn it down
burn it all down to the ground
'cause we'll be flying high above
you'll never know this kind of love

you were born from the ashes
and I do not fear the flame
Track Name: Salsa (ft Georgie Cooper)
First we have tomatoes
Then we add the garlic
Then the jalapenos
Then we mix it up, mix it up

Then cilantro
A little twist of lime
We add the peppers
Then we mix it up, mix it up

CHORUS
We do the salsa
We do the salsa
We do the salsa
Then we eat it up, eat it up

Now we chop the onions
Then we add the oil
We sizzle sizzle
Then we mix it up, mix it up
Track Name: UAS in the USA (lyrics - Mark Berry)
UAS in the USA

That drone that you just purchased
...went and purchased at the store
Here’s some things you gotta know
if it’s a half a pound or more
You gotta register that thing
as a U-A-S
With your name, with your number
and with home address

Before you charge it up
and start to let it to go
Here’s some other facts you'll need
Some things you gotta know
To fly your UAS in the good ol' USA
And stay within the rules set up by the big ol' FAA

You’re a big-wig Unmanned Aircraft System operator
You can only fly for fun
You ain't a commercial aviator
You’re now a big-wig Unmanned Aircraft System operator
That thing is just for fun
I'm like your new drone motivator

Don’t fly above a stadium
or fly close to a school
You can’t buzz by your friends
‘cause you know that just ain’t cool
You gotta keep it at four hundred feet
or somewhere down below
I'm sayin' that there simply are
some rules you've gotta know

Just keep your drone in sight
and don’t let it go astray
‘cause all the real MANNED aircraft
have got the right of way
To safely fly your UAS within the USA
You gotta keep the nearest airport
over five miles away

You’re a big-wig Unmanned Aircraft System operator
You can only fly for fun
You ain't a commercial aviator
You’re now a big-wig Unmanned Aircraft System operator
That thing is just for fun
I'm like your new drone motivator

Remember this my friend
if you're here in the USA
You can only fly your drone
within the rules set by the F... A... A...
Track Name: Hiding In The Bathroom (4-track cassette collaboration)
You've been hiding in the bathroom
Hiding in the bathroom all day
You've been hiding in the bathroom
Hiding in the bathroom all day
Hoping to disappear quietly
In the throes of anxiety
You've been hiding in the bathroom
Hiding in the bathroom all day

You've been hiding in the bathroom
Hiding in the bathroom all day
You've been hiding in the bathroom
Hiding in the bathroom all day
Feet tucked up above the stall
Pretending that you're standing in a waterfall
Hiding in the bathroom
Hiding in the bathroom all day

(solo)

You've been hiding in the bathroom
Hiding in the bathroom all day
You've been hiding in the bathroom
Hiding in the bathroom all day
Who knows what tomorrow will bring
But right now you're just waiting for the bell to ring
Hhiding in the bathroom
Hiding in the bathroom all day
Track Name: Watching Waiting (4-track cassette collaboration)
It's been so long since I last saw you
Lost in the void and I don't know why
It's been like light years since you left me
Hey, better call the FBI

Watching, waiting, hoping, praying...
Will you even come back?
Will you ever come back?

Left me alone in Foggy Bottom
Said you were going to Le Droit Park
Waited and waited for you to call me
Hey little baby, it's getting dark

Watching, waiting, hoping, praying...
Will you even come back?
Will you ever come back?

Checking out all your favorite places
Thought you might be at the zoo
Put your picture on America's Most Wanted
Someone spotted you in Kalamazoo...

Watching, waiting, hoping, praying...
Will you even come back?
Will you ever come back?

Wanted to go to California
Where the weather is hot and dry
Hey little baby, what's your problem
All you want to do is make your daddy cry

Watching, waiting, hoping, praying...
Will you even come back?
Will you ever come back?
Track Name: Always Saying Goodbye (4-track cassette collaboration)
I talk to people who don't remember my name
I see people they all look the same
I put on a smile, I go walk around
I say hello people always look at the ground

CHORUS:
You won't even look me in the eye
I'm just trying to be a normal guy

Normal people talk about TV
People always threaten to call the police on me
I'm not asking for money
or fare for the bus
people are uneasy
always looking nervous

You're always saying goodbye
everybody's got an alibi
gotta get going, got a meeting at 10
at least that's what they always pretend

Everybody's always saying goodbye
everybody's got an alibi
