about

Alex Sharp Cole Gothenburg, Sweden

In an interview with Boulder Weekly, Alex Sharp Cole spoke of his plans with New Media artist Will Epps to start a socially conscious artistic movement. This would manifest as the "Submadreamgun" exhibition in San Francisco, which was also the first "official" showing of the music in public...

Track Name: past away 2
There is a place
deep inside me, I don't show
but there's a girl who used to go there

I wanted her

I'm walkin' down this beach.. the sky is gray
these empty doorways hang open with no rooms to show
these (new) shoes are useless, with no place to go, oh

i wanted her

put the wrath away boy, try to put the past away boy, before it's too late, boy
Put the past away

Even my ability to feel
my emotion's been dissipated through a plastic screen
gotta get out man, i need a new scene!

(finger picking)
I used to want to change the world
Now I just would be happy to have a home
a place to hide, a place to go

i wanted her

end: g-sus, g (repeating)
Track Name: Remember to Smile (version 25-4-2014)
i might lose control once in awhile
but at least i remember to smile
and i suffer from no denial

your criticism seems so small
it seems like you don't know what matters at all you don't know why
I employ these methods of mine

when a dream is a bird in a cage
that birthday wish becomes the twisted gun
hey, it's no fun
to be livin' a life that's a lie, I

never needed to be number one
but I still might need to start a rebellion son
or some kind of fight for the feeling inside

and that's why
I might lose control more than once in awhile my friend
but i remember to smile, cause I
remember when i was a child

there was this story i read
when i was a kid
about a man who woke up with his boots on in his bed
he could not remember what he did

there was mud on his boots
as he opened the news
to find headlines about strange crimes in the night
this witness heard a shadow laugh and sprint
but now the cops got the mad man's boot prints

so..
believe me it scares the devil out of me too
that my mind might not know things i do
but i hope you don't mind
if i need someone sometimes

heaven knows it's true for mortals
insecurities haunt our life's got no guarantees
at least we have tonight
to be true to what mind's can't define
that's the blinding white light

for this i might lose control more than once in awhile
and i go with a smile
and i suffer from no denial

and when *your* dark towers over the human race
and the last trace of storm cloud departs me, fading away
i will stand in the rays of the sun

when the minions of war and wall street are converging below
when the fires begin i will know
that maybe it's time to come home

when the crystal machine at the heart of the world
reunites all the boys and the girls in rainbows and sunlight
and their tears become pearls

why then I'll walk down the desert street
stop the first person i meet
and say thank you for being in the world

then, in tears i'll tell her

i might lose control once in awhile
i try to emember to smile
but what i suffer from is no denial, child
Track Name: we are gonna shine (7-08-2014)
I met a girl in spain, she said the pain became overwhelming
she tried to end it with a knife
15 years of her small towns´ frustrated hopes and tears
crystalized in a moment on a bridge, in west Madrid, dressed in white

by the lights of the city below, you know, I could see that she'd been crying
*it was only then that i saw the vast beauty in / her eyes,
inside there was a dream and there was pain and then i knew we were the same, so i told her:
we are gonna shine

*I met a man who thought his past defined / his life /* he offered me some wine.
i broke the crust of cynicism. He begged me to stay with him, so I *answered* "we are gonna shine."

I told him around the world we are gonna shine
and take away the sadness with the light
i've seen *a lot* of people. I've seen the life in their eyes
we are gonna shine

and then I met a man who owned a corporation
the corporation owned a million lives
he said, "It's funny, all i have to do is pay them
and they'll do work that they don't even like.

and then i met a man who had a conversation with a nation
said the corporations made the masses blind
it doesn't take a TV station anymore to stop a war ( for instance) or, to change the world
this time

so lets start a new religion of the mind
without churches, or dogma, or steeples
we just travel land to land and when the people stop to ask us why,
we tell them: We are gonna shine

around the world we are gonna shine
we'll take away the sadness with the light
we've seen a lot of people. We've seen the life that's in their eyes
we are gonna shine

it's been more than a generation since the world has even tried
we are gonna shine

i seen a lot of people, i've seen the light they have inside
we are gonna shine

(****TRANSFORMATION COMPLETE****!!!)


and when *your*/THE dark towers over *your* human race
when the last trace of storm cloud departs me, fading away
i will stand in the rays of the sun

when the minions of war and wall street are converging below
when the fires begin i will know
that maybe it's time to come home

when the crystal machine at the core/heart of the world
reunites all the boys and the girls like rainbows and sunlight
as their tears crystalize into(become) pearls
well, then I'll walk down the dead main street
and stop the first person i meet
and say thank you for being in the world

in earnest/ tears i'll tell her
i might lose control once in awhile / but i still remember to smile
but *what* i suffer from is no denial, child.
