    Imagine if any given moment in your life could be the gateway to a parallel world where you are someone else. Your face, your age, even your species could change, but your name remains the same. Maybe you’re still you, or maybe you’re possessing other beings… after all, you begin to recall their memories as soon as you land somewhere new. You have no control over when these shifts happen, nor do you know where or when you’ll end up next. Would you think you’d gone mad?

    What if, after years of living as other people, you noticed that a girl- the same girl -was traveling along with you?

Watch your step and catch your breath
and cover up, you’ll catch your death,
and maybe if you’re good you’ll catch a break.
Or maybe raise the stake
if you’re awake.
Always stuck between the lines,
you read the signs but still sometimes
you wanna go where no one knows your name.
But nothing seems to change
when you’re the same.
Who do you blame?

It will be alright
if I just wait here.
I’ll just close my eyes
and I’ll disa…

Peering into outer space,
it’s laughing in your ashen face
’cause it’s the biggest picture on display.
And you’re just DNA
with things to say.
Now you find here waiting here,
maybe you can bend her ear
and bare your soul before she’s gone again.
But much to your chagrin,
you just can’t win.
Sing it again and again and again and again…


Pirouette around the sun,
your world has come undone and
underneath it all you’re lonely just like me
and everyone you’ll ever see.
So is she.
So stop and breathe…

It will be alright
if I just wait here.
I’ll just close my eyes
and I’ll disappear.

Matthew Ebel Seattle, Washington

I call myself a piano rocker, but I’m really just kind of a goofball. I’ve been playing the piano since age 5, discovered electronic music at 12, and made this stuff my career in '99. Since then I’ve played the Grand Ole Opry, been quoted in Rolling Stone, and made a name for myself in new media. I’ve been playing piano rock full-time since 2007 and since then I’ve never looked back. ... more
