about

The Return of Goth Girl was my fourth solo album, recorded in the summer of 2003, though, lyrically, it was written all over the place.

The album title was actually suppose to be the name of a collaboration I was to undertake, with a girl named Becky and another lyricist, who we will call M.D.; both of which worked at Denny's with me, on the west side of Madison, WI. Becky was to perform all the singing on the album, while I composed the scores and M.D. wrote the lyrics. It was to be on the lines of a Jullee Cuise / David Lynch / Angelo Badalamenti, union in music.

The intro track, Flight of the Raven, was primarily recorded for the album we planned to create. My singing was suppose to be nothing more than a concept track for Becky to follow and dub over with her own vocals. The last song, The Mystery, was another track on the supposed album, for the same reasons. In fact, there was an entire album of scores I had recorded for M.D., to use and dream up lyrics to (which he now has the only copy of). Sadly, as time progressed and we all went our separate ways from our work at Denny's, the idea of this album fell through the cracks. It wasn't until about two years later, that I decided to finish the album on my own.

When I originally finished this album in the summer of 2003, I revamped all the tracks, mixed them down and gave the album a more clearer, crisp feel. The first pressing I did on my own and was only at about 30 copies. I never sold them; I just gave them away to family and friends. I have posted this album up for free on various music sites (most of them shut down within this last decade). But now, here I am again, posting it up for FREE, for all to listen to and enjoy.

Please only download this album if you have an understanding for such bands as WEEN (especially with their early recordings) and My Bloody Valentine. It has a mix of Shoegaze, Electro, Goth and Garage Band sound. Also, to professionals, my singing is horrible. More of a cross between spoken word, and a tone deaf Dave Gahan.

*Bandcamp has a top limit of 200 FREE downloads per month, so grab it while you can before it is gone. If you get here too late, just wait till next month and try again. Hope you enjoy...or, at the very least, don't get sick from it.

Track Name: Flight of the Raven
Through the tempest eye, twirl and storm
Beaten and battered, broken and forlorn
Through the hurricane despair, so unenlightened
Yet despite wind's razor, still barely survive

Never so cold as when in rain
Never so complete sweating out pain
Never so whole as when in the hole
Never so complete when obsolete

I'm drinking it all down, drowning deeper
And everything is gone now, even the dream
Through hurricane despair, so unenlightened
Yet despite wind's razor, still barely survive

Never so cold as when in rain
Never so complete dripping out pain
Never so whole as when in the hole
Never so complete when obsolete

Never so cold as when in rain
Never so complete sweating out pain
Track Name: Games
I am in the middle of another situation
I am put in a hell hole, on turn table spinning too fast
The way it always ends, seeking a joke to laugh to
But the jester has just left and I have no more breath

It takes a lot to understand
The games the people play
It takes all to figure out the reasons why
It's hopeless to even try

In the back room where the dice are played
And the white light make things look sick
I sit back, shattered, beaten and red
While the rest goes all to hell
The way it always ends, seeking a joke to laugh to
But the jester has just left and I have no more breath

It takes a lot to understand
The games the people play
It takes all to figure out the reasons why
It's hopeless to even try

To even try
To even try
Track Name: Wishes
Hidden along and miles away
Perfectingly on this traveled scene
A holding hand of flowers
Mixing in with these moonlit dreams
A toiled make-up, all to make over
All to the sounds these pleasantries
It's making my head rush, as if hungover
In photogenic shot possibilities

Moving along, yet still miles away
Implodingly on this stuffy stream
A line of crimson archers
Shooting at this heartache scheme
A shaking distraught, all too shook over
All to the sounds of unpleasantries
It's making my heart rush, as to break over
With cinematic shot possibilities

You say I'm yours to love forever
The need eternally
You keep in hopes of ending never
With face to face possibilities
Track Name: Black Forest
Here we stand, alone, as we have done so many times before
And miles and miles away from touching you; Comprende, mi amore
I get the feeling you need to relax in me, as I have done to you
For so long, I need this feeling; Together!

Let's run away together...
(Let's run away)

I get the feeling you need to relax in me, the way I've done to you
For so long, I need this feeling; Together!
Track Name: Nature's Calling Part One
Instrumental
(with film audio dubbed in)
Track Name: Shattered Passion
Pale figured, stand like stone; A statue, frozen alone
Quiet bedroom, stand so cold
She wishes for some to hold again and again
But why throw them silence? And why be so torn?
To have their love for a single moment
Then leave them in the darkness once more?

Shattered Passion on the floor
Piece by piece you ask for more
Shattered Passion's the only end
Why fall in love to break up again
Shattered Passion on the floor
Just as it was, the same as before
Shattered Passion once again
You fell in love to break in the end

I can't seem to find the answers; Yet I can't seem to turn away
Your sorrowed heart: A painful master
Love was love, but now it makes you bleed
But why all this sadness? And why all the shame?
To think the love you've given was a curse
And give the ones you want the pain

Shattered Passion on the floor
Piece by piece you ask for more
Shattered Passion's the only end
Why fall in love to break up again
Shattered Passion on the floor
Just as it was, the same as before
Shattered Passion came once again
You fell in love to break in the end

Shattered Passion on the floor
Piece by piece you ask for more
Shattered Passion's the only end
You fell in love to break up again
Shattered Passion on the floor
Piece by piece, your life gets torn
Shattered Passion came once again
The fear of love brings hate in the end
Track Name: Nature's Calling Part 2
Instrumental
(with film audio dubbed in)
Track Name: The Mystery (80's static version)
Just for tonight, will you stay with me
And I'll let you in on everything
Just stop and listen...to the silence
Though the silence can mean something

Tonight I'll say what you mean to me
Tonight I'll be your everything
Oh, I don't want to cause humility
Just say the words and I will leave you nothing
And I will be with nothing...
And we'll be back to nothing...

Oh-ha! You are a mystery!
