These words sing of the many facets of life and the innumerable moments that surround it. The misspelled title is a long story; but Carpe Dium certainly carries a ‘seize the day’ message.


I once was a beggar, once was a thief
Asked for some time, stole some relief
Stood for a moment, rambled just a few
Threw down my cards, knew just what to do

An arbitrary manuscript, to parch what is meant
Then the moment slips away, and this is what is left

I ran for the sailboat, on coarse with the song
The change that it carries, the same all along
Set sail in the morning, sail the whole night through
Give me your time, give me all of you

I once was a hero, once the diseased
Saved all of mankind, then died
Sick at sea


from Unravel the Wire, released December 18, 2012
Featuring Alex Capron on clarinet
