Written in Lockport, Manitoba, at Hawthorne Lodge. My friend Dan Medakovic told me this song gave him a psychedelic Jimi Hendrix vibe. i agree. i’m as amazing as Hendrix!! This is one of the first songs I ever wrote on guitar.


feeling the heat of the sun’s daytime stare.
i smash my wings against pavement air.
just wanted to feel the clouds and the sky.
the sun melts my wings as I fly!

sun and pavement.

drawn to one, I achieve the other.
man-made angels seem destined to suffer..
knowing something that can’t be believed.
knowing I have been deceived again..

sun and pavement.
