about

Kansas Dan Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

I write songs because I have to laugh or embrace a fear. I wish I was a gospel and soul singer. My writing reflects that. When I open my mouth to sing, however, I come out country and folky. Like Cash, I try to give voice to the voiceless in some songs. Like John Prine I like to express my patriotism with a bit of sarcasm. ... more

Track Name: Minivan of My Dreams
Gasoline should be illegal, jet- fuel in the police-pound,
Then we can get most the missiles back down on the ground.

I want a fuel-celled F-16, and a solar-powered Jeep.
I want electric cars in every garage, And I want them on the cheap.

How do I justify living check to check? Who should I crucify, or who do I elect
For public transportation that runs on empty coffee cups? Or perhaps a city bus fueled by passenger chin-ups?

I want a fuel-celled F-16, and a solar-powered Jeep.
I want electric cars in every garage, And I want them on the cheap.
Track Name: Kryptonite and Superman
I would be with you tonight
If you were not Kryptonite and I
Wasn’t trying to be Superman

I’ll just fly circles downtown
To find a hall where I can’t be found
And where you wouldn’t want to see the band

Well Pittsburgh is small and tight
You don’t see many Mennonites
Mr. Roger’s neighborhood does cocaine.

On every corner there’s a Steeler’s game
The women here are just as insane for
Football, drugs & booze.

I would be with you tonight
If you were not Kryptonite
And I wasn’t trying to be Superman

But I’m not Irish or interesting
I don’t write to magazines
And tell them anything that occurs to me.

I work a job 9 to 5
I put on a suit and smile
I’m sure I bore a girl with scars like you.

It would be fair for you to say
The only way I make my pay
Is to fight, figure and sue.

I would be with you tonight
If you were not Kryptonite
And I wasn’t trying to be Superman
