Waiting for Inspiration

 

Waiting for inspiration
Sometimes it comes, sometimes it doesn’t
This is a good time to be patient
The time I spent with you was not

I followed rules to the letter 
And I’ve changed
Not for the better
Bashing my skull to the roots
Crushing bones under my boots
Sleeping until I couldn’t wake
Through hurricanes and earthquakes
Risking all for safety’s sake
Giving till I couldn’t take
Medicating to stay sick
Playing with boredom for kicks
Carrying sunshine through the storm
Killing myself to be born

New album "Observations" available now. A veteran of NYC’s underground music scene, Mike Power played on the stages of such beloved lost venues as CBGB’s and Kenny’s Castaways, as well as stalwart surviving ones like Arlene’s Grocery and the Bitter End as singer/songwriter/bassist with Late Model Humans. In 2020, quarantining from the global pandemic he worked remotely with other artists to record a collection of new music called Observations, that infuses his punk roots with introspective acoustic pieces.
