Anthill

An obsession with songwriting has been a constant in Osachoff’s life. Songwriting is an addiction for him.

Hey Folks,

I’ve been in a writer’s hibernation for awhile.  My Twitter account got hijacked and I lost momentum to post anything.  Chrome is a Wilco, The Verve and the Doves mixed together.  A friend even commented that the guitars reminded him of Sonic Youth.  Hope you like it. 

Warm Regards

Mark

Chrome

River’s a fountain

Pouring down the mountain

Filtering so slowly

To the sea

Someone there to doubt you

Try to figure out you

Either way the obvious wont due

Either way the obvious wont due

Trying to tell you how I feel

Honey can we make a deal?

Sometimes all I want to be is chrome

On the outer wheels

Your picture looking back at you

In a premium view

Sand dunes pile up high

Wind it blows, Lord it blows

Picking up the auburn landscape

Shaping as it goes

Trying to tell you how I feel

Honey can we make a deal?

Sometimes all I want to be is chrome

On the outer wheels

Your picture looking back at you

In a premium view

Rhythm is a song

We all want to belong

Million ways to get things done

Sometimes all you need is one

 

Re-posting Perfect Storm for a TV show prospect:

Perfect Storm

Red dawn morning sailor’s warning

Call for a washout, today, today

Radar calling storm is falling

Darkness sets in the bay

Turns to grey

Turns to grey

It’s ok to be Afraid

We know the winds

Can change either way

Either way

Unholy bravado remember your motto

No need to set sail today

You can stay

You can stay

It’s ok to be Afraid

We know the winds

Can change either way

Either way

It’s a short way up and a long way down

When sabotage is in my crown

Fear can be so logical

When none can be gained and all can be lost

I think that I will stand

I think that I will stand aside

This time

Here’s some fine Anthill pop with a Wilco intro

Easy to Receive

Daylight comes with the rising sun

Sunlight on my face

It’s a feeling that just can’t be replaced

Another day to start again

Living on my mind

Looking for a love that I can find

Give it away in a way

Easy to receive

Give it away

And it comes right back to you

The whippoorwill still sings the song

Deep into the night

The sun is down and the moon is now in sight

I don’t have to fear the dark

As I did before

Honesty has opened up the door

Give it away in a way

Easy to receive

Give it away

And it comes right back to you

Don’t have to go it alone

Don’t have to go it alone

Don’t have to go it alone

Don’t have to go it alone

It’s been a long time coming

It’s been a long time now

It’s been a long time coming

It’s been a long time now

Here’s a new finished demo, “Still Life”

Still Life

Heavyweights in the ring

Fightin’ and the bell rings

Counting out all the miles with every swing

Eagle with a diamond ring

Robin with a song to sing

Feathers are still the same on

Both their wings

Hunny I just want to know how you’ve been

I’m not you

Lately I’m not me

Yes it’s true

The song remains the same

The mariachi band all day

Wishing they would go away

What I wouldn’t do

To get some space

Chameleon change of shade

Gambler with a card to play

Plant a little vine and

Grow some grapes

Hunny I just want to know how you’ve been

You’re not me

And lately I’m not you

Is it true

The song remains the same

Hunny I just want to know how you’ve been

Ok, I worked on this accoustic demo a little and I now like it

Sleepwalker’s Trance

Over my shoulder

I’m getting older

Backwards and forwards

Moving in circles

No direction, no, no direction, no

Talking and listening

Never knowing what I’m missing

Conversations with strange revelations

No direction, no direction no

So I fly by night

In a sleepwalker’s trance

And I don’t feel as lonely As I usually am

No I don’t feel as lonely as I usually am

Guessing, confessing

No need for obsessing

Estimates will do

Estimates will do

No direction, no direction no

So I fly by night

In a sleepwalker’s trance

And I don’t feel as lonely As I usually am

No I don’t feel as lonely as I usually am

So I fly by night

Don’t wake my chance

At the girl that is only

The girl that is only

The girl that is only

The girl that is only

The girl that is only

The girl that is only in my dream
