Currently organizing tracks for an autobiographical album titled 'Wolfrey' ("Vol-free") which is the origin of my surname. This is the first one I've finished. I was going to do all covers, but decided I'd prefer to include original material as well, writing from some of the light and gloom of this last year. I'm fascinated with an Alexander Ebert lyric that I've heard many artists reiterate in their own way from time to time but none quite so eloquently: "...My darkness is shining, your darkness is shining; have faith in ourselves..." I suppose in some way I'm building on that idea, looking back at some songs from my past that made me feel light and youthful, then some songs that perhaps express a darker side. This one, in particular, was originally titled 'killing myself this winter' but I thought people wouldn't get the sarcasm and it would be a little dramatic. It's about accepting that there are desires in us that are more complex than our situations. Furthermore, I'd like to believe that we shouldn't ignore or negate those desires simply because they're unfamiliar. Perhaps there are unknown emotions. I myself, tonight, just finishing this, feel rather hot and cold, sometimes I can't articulate my moods. This song says I'm proud of those dark moods, because--in all reality--how would we appreciate the light in us if we didn't have the need for illumination. I, therefore, appreciate my dark side.

i could see you in the winter road
didn't wanna hurt your body
i broke into a lover's sweat
followed by a ray of light
then i became a tv set
tapping into information
protocol that i forget
while i was trying to keep ya warm
and then the snow came down
all around me
(just like as if we knew it would)
taking to the land like
unknown emotion.

if i ever had a bit of you
pressing up against the table
i'd be playing you like you were pool
swimming in the wet green felt
into subordinate domination
baby, even to the point of pain
every time i hear you (!)
there's a fire pumping in the vein
and then a snow comes down
all around me
(just like you said you told it to)
taking to my skin like
unknown emotion.
