about

This is my experimental folk album. I can't actually play guitar, so I had to record 1-2 strings at a time. It's been about a year in the making. I recommend it for easy listening when you're alone. Thanks for all the support.

about

David Dingess Atlanta, Georgia

A man could keep his music interest stronger, cleaner, bigger and freer if he didn't try to make a living out of it. Assuming a man lives by himself and with no dependents, no one to feed but himself, and is willing to live as simply as Thoreau, he might write music that no one would play prettily, listen to or buy. - George Ives ... more

Track Name: Groove Gun Showdown
petrified, by the light, carry on world,
im not tryin to stop you, im not tryin to stop you.
but ive come to a conclusion that doesnt seem to make sense,
come dance with me world, come dance with me world.

busy bees, from the trees, workin so hard,
im not tryin to stop you, im not tryin to stop you.
but it seems to be production is the thing that keeps you awake,
come dance with me world, come dance with me world.

And as the moon as our light and our hearts on the line,
we will sing the songs of endless days in hopes that somehow time,
will bring us back here again, but it probrably wont my friend,
but whos there to stop us, whos there to stop us?

love or hate, play it safe, dont tell no one,
cuz whos gonna listen, whos gonna listen?
and we will twist the truth in twenty ways to keep our minds in place,
but its just not worth it, its just not worth it.

step outside, take your pains and shout em out,
cuz whos gonna listen, whos gonna listen?
and you could pick up a gun and point it at them and say sorry friends,
but its just not worth it, its just not worth it.
Track Name: A String Theorist
I am fearful of losing my stance, and I'm trying not to look down.
Track Name: The Followers
all walking in a line, the sons and daughters close behind,
step, step, marching strange, this useless struggle's always changing
tall tales couldnt tell what ghouls and goblins used to dwell in here.

castles emerged from here, and stay forever in the clear,
work, work, till you're tired, and throw your worries in the fire,
and mother earth will soon require her world to give you just the peace you need.

after the desert's whine, for water has been satisfied,
she whispers goodnight and turns over to her other side,
and I turn to the metaphor that seems to say exactly who you are.

cry tears of jubilee, for one like you to set me free,
search, search, for the one, for endless days under the sun.
and then, I, think of you, and now I know my search for you is done.
Track Name: Pickin' Lillies
All my weapons on the ground, Arms wide open on my knees.
you're searching through my pockets for a different side of me.
I can live, hand to mouth, if we live hand in hand,
I dont have much to offer but my love will always stand.

Walk the valley till the sun goes down.
Picking the lillies make them go, white to brown.
You can hold onto, somethings you want to,
But walk the valley till you no longer do.

As the canvas crashes down.
As you turn and look around.
Whatchu wanna do now?
As we hide from others eyes,
guess you've never looked at mine,
What do you wanna do now?

You know we all make mistakes,
Id forgive you anyways, just as bad as that is.
And if you were made from the ground, if that god is still around,
I would let him be known.

And if you told me you love me and I tried to make that sense,
I would get off the fence.
And if peace does come to you, when youve left the life we knew,
I would tell you goodbye.
Track Name: The Warlocks
Louder than the bugs were the thoughts of our love as it
Twirled on the ground like a merry-go-round, and the
Stars watch on hoping I build up the courage for a kiss.

There Are
Mishapen articles of clothing on the shore and they're
all dirtied up when we wake in the morn, and we
put them back on and we've never felt warmer before.

And our grins retrace the trails in the woods,
And our eyes retrace the skys of that lone starry night,
And the warlocks and the pine trees protected us well,
In the river where our love was found.

The silhouette hills in their patience sit still for
milleniums to pass and see only the grass but if,
I had the view I guess I wouldn't move myself a while.

Then the doggies run out of those ideas they shout and the
Sun wakes the wild as it spreads its light out and I
Open my eyes and you open your eyes and we smile.

Ohh, I don't mind If I die If you tell me goodbye.
Ohh, I don't care anymore.
Ohh, I don't mind If my time wasn't always spent right.
I found you and you're very hard to find.

Louder than the bugs were the thoughts of our love as it
Twirled on the ground like a merry-go-round, and I
Look to the stars hoping this moment is eternal to them.
Track Name: Cream And Witty
two steps in awe, two steps in awe,
to steps in awe, and im at rest
youve got a hold, youve got a hold,
youve got a hold, hold tight at best.

when we were young, when we were young,
when we were young, but we are now.
lets keep the time, lets keep the time,
lets keep the time, on our side.

ill tell you things, ill tell you things,
ill tell you things you want to hear.
you paint the pictures and ill trace the fixtures,
that float in the vast atmosphere.

take off those shoes, put on that smile,
remind me why I'm stuck on you,
put away lies and then relace your ties,
with the world that is never untrue,

come as you are, come when you may,
and come as you were when you began,
look beyond looks, think beyond thoughts,
you are my girl and im your man,

and when we lie, next to our graves,
i feel we are no longer caged.
two steps in awe, two steps in awe,
two steps in awe, and were of age.

one day youll see, one day Ill see,
one day well see if this begins,
but I say its now for us to find out somehow
that this love that we have never ends.
Track Name: The Sultan
You ask the sultan, where do we go, when were young,
and he says to you, nobody knows, you've just begun.
You fear the process, but then you go, and find your place,
and you enjoy it, incredibly shown, on your face,

The wrinkles, you're falling apart,
The heartaches, you're falling for art.
The people, can't tell who you are,
And that's when you have made the journey to the worlds end.
Track Name: A Warm Welcome
Let it be known in the waters.
Track Name: Tin Roof Runoff
And we are all the softest rains that fall to our undoubted ends, so now I know these things you've said to me.
Track Name: Far From Farms
The only thing i'm sure of is you.
