about

The result of a 3-day music bender, hunched over my recording gear, nary taking a break for food or sleep. The title comes from the idea that, though I'm usually considered a nut and a little broken, I became unbroken for just long enough to write and record these songs that are a snapshot of my life from those 3 days.

about

Phil Johnson and Roadside Attraction Milpitas

Phil Johnson is a man who gets mistaken for a woman, but only by those not paying attention. That revelation kicks off a battle for self-awareness where comedy and music are the weapons of choice. It’s a battle that has taken Phil to such esteemed festivals as the Edinburgh Fringe and Sundance Film Festivals and the Top 8 Finals of the World Series of Comedy. ... more

Track Name: Do It Again
It’s kinda weird seeing you in the different way
Not the same old day to day
You look so good and I feel just like a fool
Can’t find the right words to say
I think it’s cool, then in your eyes, I drift away

Chorus
I know we’re feeling kind of awkward
And I’m not that great a talker
But I hope that we can do it again
I know the meal was kind of crummy
You must think that I’m a dummy
But I hope that we can do it again

I can’t believe that you’re still right here with me
The night has been a disaster
I feel so nervous and I just can’t keep my cool
But there’s nowhere I’d rather be
My stomach churns, but in your eyes, it’s love I see

Chorus

Bridge
Every time I look around
I see the faces staring down at me
They think that I’m a freak
They’re wondering what you’re doing with me

Chorus
Track Name: Dead City Support Club
I arrived on an average Tuesday night
For another meeting of the
Dead City Support Club
Soundman was gearing up for the fight
Even though there was no audience in sight
It was just another night for the
Dead City Support Club

Chorus
The band played it’s heart out on every song
The bartenders clapped as they sang along
Dead City Support Club ignored the gloom
As the sound bounced off the empty room
Everybody was there for the love
Dead City Support Club

At 10:05 a crazy girl walked in
Drunk or high we could not begin to tell
She danced like she was watching the dead and not the
Dead City Support Club

Chorus

As the hands of time ticked away
I heard the weird girl say
She was feeling down but we brought her back up
We looked at each other and smiled
Decided it was all worthwhile
To find a little bit of life left after all

Chorus
Track Name: Blue Collar Anthem
Who wants to hear another sappy song
About the power of rock n’ roll
Or the trials of a love affair gone awry again
Who wants to hear me dedicating all my love
To a girl that no one knows
In a place I’ll never go

There must be some kind of way out of here
Said the worker to the chief

Chorus
And this is my blue collar anthem
For those who just don’t care
They’ve seen it all before and lived it more
And found it isn’t fair
And this is my blue collar anthem
For a dream that isn’t there

Who wants to hoist beer and come along with me
On a rock n’ roll fantasy
Where she done you wrong but it’s alright again
Find a way to get away, take this job and shove away
You come full circle yeah
But you’re doing what you can, you’re doing what you can

There must be some kind of way out of here
Said the worker to the thief

Chorus

Those empty words, now they’re meaning even less
When life weighs on your chest
They’re just a symbol of the innocence that’s lost
When the fun is over, now you pay the cost

Chorus
