Joshua Smotherman From the opening Whiskey Song to the closing Insomnia, Wash Me is the perfect addition to any rockers music collection. Jay’s song crafting skills, his musicianship and his years of experience set him apart from the average independent musician and guarantees a much needed consistency that never disappoints. Favorite track: I am Alive.

Malika Dahl Jay Regan’s songs are a combination of old school and modern rock and, apart from the “Whiskey Song”, which didn’t provide any good lyrics and was rather disappointing, are worth listening to. Considering as well, that Jay Regan plays all the parts in his project himself we must appreciate the effort that went into his CD.
For rock lovers this CD will be a great addition to their CD shelves. To all the other music lovers: Lean back and enjoy this music from colliding times. Favorite track: Right Between the Eyes.

Track Name: Whiskey Song
I got whiskey on my mind, think about whiskey all the time
If I don't get my whiskey, I'm gonna get frisky I got whiskey on my mind
I got smoking on my mind, think about smoking all the time
if i don't get my smoke on, gonna get something to poke on
I got smoking on my mind

I got to find out what I gotta do,
so I don't have to formulate a sentence or two
Want to stay messed up all of the day so if she comes back she wont come back to stay Hey Hey, Hey Hey

I got red wine on my mind, think about red wine all the time
if i don't get my red wine, it's gonna be party time
I got red wine on my mind

I got to find out what I gotta do,
so I don't have to formulate a sentence or two
Want to stay messed up all of the day so if she comes back she wont come back to stay Hey Hey, Hey Hey

Repeat 1st Verse

I got whiskey on my mind, think about whiskey all the time
If I don't get my whiskey,
I'm gonna get frisky I got whiskey on my mind

I got smoking on my mind

I got red wine on my mind
Track Name: Grow
Listen to me and I'll tell you a story
of a tell-tale heart that never bleds you're
gonna find out what it’s like, this time, this time
Been too long with so much confusion
but you stood by me to the bitter end
gonna find out what it means to be alive, to be alive

Why can't you see what you mean to me
yet I know, yes I know
Loves the only thing that will ever grow

Between the lines and in the spaces
of a weathered heart that's never read
I want to change the ending of a different story
One that tells about of the glory
of the better life that's come to me
by the joining that has made us three
gonna find out what it means to be strong, to be strong

Can't see what you mean to me
yet I know yes I know
Loves the only thing that will ever grow
I can’t breathe, like you can breathe
yet I know, yes I know
Loves the only thing that will ever grow

Love with me is complicated but
it's never leaves and it never wanes
I know it must feel strange this time
I know sometimes you must dig deeper
to uncover how I really feel --pause--
I just want you to know
I need you every day

SOLO

Can't you see what you mean to me
yet I know yes I know
Loves the only thing that will ever grow
I can’t breathe, like you can breathe
yet I know, yes I know
Loves the only thing that will ever grow
Track Name: Dad
High on a hillside, watching over me
I see the sun light in your eyes
You were always quiet but your strength burned through
I hope that we can be the same

Dad, don't be mad, if we say we love you
If we'll never be the same without you, Dad
don't be sad, if we say we need you
It's not a weakness when you tell someone you care

Walk beside the ocean, calm a troubled sea, soaring high above the sands
you never sought attention, though the truth be told
there's an empty space within our heart

Dad, don't be mad, if we say we love you
If we'll never be the same without you, Dad
don't be sad, if we say we need you
It's not a weakness when you tell someone you care

You worked so hard day and night
that's how we know how much you cared
you gave the world yourself and tought us how to live
you know we won't be scared, alive inside us Dad


Dad, don't be mad, if we say we love you
If we'll never be the same without you, Dad
don't be sad, if we say we need you
It's not a weakness when you tell someone you care


Dad, don't be mad, if we say we love you
If we'll never be the same without you, Dad
don't be sad, if we say we need you
It's not a weakness when you tell someone you care
Track Name: Right Between the Eyes
Right Between the Eyes

When I awoke, in the hospital
I couln't control myself, what was going on
am I in a dream, I want to scream
I could not believe how the earth has turned

and all I want to do is to save my family

Right Between the eyes
in the brain
is where it has to be
right between the eyes
in the brain, if you want to survive

Out on the road
Moving car to car
you meet some strange things all along the way
some are walking dead, some still alive
the only difference is it's harder to be sure

and all I want to do is to find my family

Right Between the eyes
in the brain
is where it has to be
right between the eyes
in the brain, if you want to survive
Track Name: Forever Changed, Forever Lost
If it never stops, who are we to blame
You and I alone thinking, talking of yesterday’s
Been around the world, sitting with the shame
Like a single tile that teeters falls the other way
We've been wronged

They prey upon, ones perceived as weak
but they're bright and special, shooting stars across the night
Built upon the fears, handing out the tears
Ones they've saved up trapped inside, built over years
You’ve been wronged

We try to raise our children to love and be loved
No one knows where some have failed
Multiply the senseless data in their minds
Forever changed, Forever Lost, That's the crime

Sometimes they’re not to blame, It’s like the rain
When the storm is over give it time it comes again
Is it DNA? Or is it passed down?
Parent to child, child to children, it worms its way, into our lives

We try to raise our children to love and be loved
No one knows where some have failed
Multiply the senseless data in their minds
Forever changed, Forever Lost, That's the crime
Track Name: How Hard it Can Be
I know, I know you got that look it your eyes
I know, I know that deathly stare
You took a trip down to the chemist
But boy that cupboard is bare

and I know when you look at the sea
you're just killing some time
yes I know how hard it can be

You had it all, left what you loved in this life
You had it all the palm of your hand
all of the things, people have CHERISHED
evaporate into air

and I know when you look in the sky
it comes crashing down
yes I know how hard it can be

We come from a place, a moment out of time
You're such a disgrace living on somebody's dime
When, you look back, on the nightmares you've consieved
Will you feel the same today
'cause you're living on borrowed time

you're bound to pay back . . . REPEAT FOR CHORUS

and I know on your climb to the top
the summits just out of reach
yes I know how hard it can be

and I know when you make a score
you're just chasing your tail
yes I know how hard it can be
how hard it can be
how hard it can be
Track Name: Faces
We've arrived, half alive, in this back-lit fantasy
In the air, without a care, or floating on a restless sea
We don't care, if you stare, just don't look down on me
We don't mind, just be kind, there’s another side of me

I can't fight it anywhere oh, anyway it shows, see it in the faces
I can't fight it anywhere oh, anyway it shows

Fight the wars, break the walls, slowly turning pages burned
Losing control, without a toll, it's not. - what it's meant to be
We don't care, it's in the air, don't turn the other cheek
I don't buy it, can't confine it, restlessly defined

I can't find it anywhere oh, anyway it shows, see it in the faces
I can't find it anywhere oh, anyway it shows

Naaa Naaaa I don't mind, cause if you want to know, I'll be just fine

Don't cry, don't cry, don't cry for me
Don't try, don't try, don't try for me
I don't care, if you dare, rescue me this time
All alone, by the phone, waiting there for me

I can't find it anywhere oh, anyway it shows, see it in the faces
I can't find it anywhere oh, anyway it shows
Don't cry, don't try, don't bow to me.
Track Name: Road to Oblivion
I was born, in a shell, in a test tube blinded by the science & technology
I’m a boy, I’m a man, as long I live, you know I’ll never really understand

Why I’m angry, enlightened, I’m crazy, inviting,
alone and tattooed with markings that age sustains
I’m lightning, canned violence, I’m drinking and too frightened
and too lazy to ever stomp it down

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

Take what they want
Do as they please
Follow the leader
Spread the disease
If you let them they will take you down on the road to oblivion

I was once, just like you, when time moved on that’s when I started to realize
Half life, on a shelf, homogenized, for people who really don’t give a damn

You’re under, the controllers, been promised, been broken
Been lied to, happy to be breathing the air they made
We need to stand up, break down, punish and take down
The muscle that only drags us down

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

Take what they want
Do as they please
Follow the leader
Spread the disease
If you let them they will take you down We’re on the road to oblivion

Solo

Silence, can’t be bought, at least the silence muted by technology
In the night, all seems good, between the hours of something like 3 to 5

We’re bloated, fat cats, feeding, in white caps, jaded
Immune to the violence and hypocrisy
Got - to – awaken, and be shaken, your bright eyes
See clearly, stop texting, it only stomps you down

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

Take what they want
Do as they please
Follow the leader
Spread the disease

If you let them they will take you down We’re on the road to oblivion
