Squinted eyes hide the toiling mind
Squinted eyes seek the prize

Shoot a bullet into the night, anyway that you like
and you may hit something
Shoot a bullet into the night, hoping it somehow finds
it's way to the bulls eye

What's a secret that you wish I knew
What's something you can prove is true
Greatness endures? What's your proof?
The motivation is crystal clear
The inspiration, I can feel it near
So, hurry up so it can disappear

AJ McKinley is a fellow from San Francisco who plays lots of instruments and writes/records lots of songs.
Using artists like Brian Eno, Kurt Vile and Reggie Watts as jumping off points, the music is composed/performed/recorded using only a bass, vocals, a looper and a drum set. All "guitar-ish" or "synth-ish" type sounds/solos were created through effects and pitch shifting on the bass.
