From the recording Episode in Contrast

Started (and ended) as a meditation on the meaning of life, and how do we get the answers to the tough stuff? I never came to a conclusion but it helped to write this song. John Ross helped me to achieve those angelic sounding vocal beds on the chorus, all the way from Chicago!

Lyrics

What is the secret to life?
What is profane versus sacred?
Some of the answers tonight
And some come tomorrow
 What is the secret to life?
Intelligence versus the instinct
Kindness no longer provides
So bring on the anger…
 An Episode in Contrast
A darker shade of grey
Incidiary ego tripping out
I just don’t think my mind can make me stay
 What is the secret to life?
Cause starting all over is hopeless
Might as well settle for less and tear all the walls down
 What is the secret to life?
Storms are all raging around me
The heart can always turn around and catch all the lightning
 An Episode in Contrast
A darker shade of grey
Incidiary ego tripping out
I just don’t think my mind can make me stay
