Mark’s mother was Irish Catholic. His father, a Russian Jew. In the 2nd grade, Mark veered “off course”… secretly. It is not clear how the "thread" was lost, but it had to do with a botched reading assignment; a chapter in a blue and yellow book left unread. Later, there were 2 nervous system glitches and at least 2 ecstatic dot connecting sessions. Finally, a Need… to sing. ... more

Track Name: Walking On Frozen Water
Walking On Frozen Water

He is not tall
He wears a robe and sandles
Miles of cars
The helicopters hovering
With all the hype
Its hard to be objective

That man's Walking On Frozen Water
I can see him through the glare and through the steam
There he goes looking into the camera
Oh god i'm freezing

Some have come far
To see the one we've waited on so long
Just to believe
Finally in something
He is not tall
But he's as graceful as hell

That man's Walking On Frozen Water
I believe that he's the one of which they spoke
There he goes, looking into the camera
He's even prettier in person
He's the one
He's the one i know it
I can tell by the way he's carrying himself
There he goes
That is water ain't it?
Oh god i'm freezing
Track Name: You Are Here (by The Citizens)
You Are Here

Looking at maps and charts
Trying to see where you are
Within a universe of possibilities
You're looking to the clouds when its clear
You are where it's at and You Are Here

Finding the formula
Its there right in front of ya
Kinda like Algebra
You're working it out
Searching wide and far when it's near
It is where you are and You Are Here

Searching wide and far
Looking to the clouds
When its clear
You are where it's at
And You Are Here...
You Are Here
