about

Greetings everyone!

I'm proud to announce the release of my new album "This Is Today".
The name pretty much says it all. These eight songs are a culmination
of some of the most recent material I've been working on.
From progressive pop to jazz and funk, these recordings embody the many
influences that have shaped my songwriting over the years.

Special thanks to Anthony Evans for all his support and many collaborative efforts.

Also thanks to Isaac Stein for his amazing rap on "Water So Clear". This young man is a great talent with a bright future, check it out!

Check out my website at www.markwillmusic.com for this and other links to my music.

Thanks for listening...enjoy!

Track Name: Put That Money Down
I caught you reaching in my cookie jar...when you thought I wasn't home
I don't know who you think you are...you're disrespectful it's so disgraceful
Maybe now you're gonna' have to learn how to make it on your own
'cause no one else can trust you when your intentions are unknown
But now that you've shown me the kind of person that you are...I won't let you run and hide...

Put that money down...put that money back now...put that money down...put that money back right now

If you thought that I would let it go...that was your first mistake
I won't sit idly by...while you fake me out and take my money
I'm not the fool who you think I am...I don't look the other way
When someone else takes all my credit...this is not okay
I never really thought that you would ever go this far...But I've been taken for a ride...

Put that money down...put that money back now...put that money down...put it all back, every single cent
Put that money down...put that money back now...put that money down...no argument

You got me to confide in you with fraudulent intent....I should have seen that it was my money you resent
I let you hang around while concealing who you are...what makes you think that you can sell me out.....just put it back

But now that you've shown me the kind of person that you are....I never really thought that you c ould ever go this far...
Don't try to get away 'cause I won't let you run and hide...I won't be taken for a ride...

Put that money down...put that money back now...put that money down...put it all back, every single cent
Put that money down...put that money back now...put that money down...put that money right back now
Put that money down...put that money back now...put that money down...I never really thought that you would go this far
Put that money down...put that money back now...put that money down...put that money right back now

Put it back in my cookie jar right now....no argument
Track Name: I Think So
All God's children got a place in this world... there's lots of new mommas always giving birth...
Precious little babies all stacked in a row...and proud young daddies counting fingers and toes...
Move on over and give them a place...to occupy positions in the human race...
The time will come when you get back in the womb...'cause if we all live forever then we'll run out of room...

Hasta la vista, baby....Hasta la vista

I'll see you again... you know that I think so... 'cause the end will begin... when I see you... in the next round, baby

Everybody's looking for the fountain of youth..They keep on tryin' to discover a clue...
How 'bout everyone just get in line...if you're runnin' on empty and you're out of time...
Take a back seat to the youthful ones...'cause when you leave here that is what you become...
You'll be a baby all pampered and new....living with thoughts that are void of truth..

Hasta la vista, baby....Hasta la vista

I'll see you again...you know that I think so...'cause the end will begin...when I see you...in the next round...
I'll see you again...you know that I think so...'cause the end will begin...when I see you...yes I think so baby...

Trading emptiness for thoughtful love....being witnesses from heaven above....
Starting over with a different name....nothing is familiar but it all feels the same...
Something tells me that I've been here before...but I can't remember who I was anymore...
I'm an empty vessel just waiting to learn.....I'm a precious little baby and it's time to take my turn....

I'll see you again...you know that I think so...'cause the end will begin...when I see you...in the next round...
I'll see you again...you know that I think so...'cause the end will begin...when I see you...yes I think so baby..
Track Name: Are You Comfortable Baby?
I can see you scratch and squirm like a bug inside a light
I can't hear a word you say 'cause you only want to fight
Maybe if I play too loud then I will cover up your noise

Are you comfortable baby... Are you comfortable baby...

You told me that you love me girl but I can see that isn't right
You caught me in your sexual world, no feelings where in sight
Now there is no time and place for you to lay your body down

Are you comfortable baby... are you comfortable baby
Are you comfortable baby......are you comfortable baby

Intimidation pouring from your eyes
Interrogation for another lie
You can listen to me rant and rave
But I'm not leaving 'til I've heard you say that your comfortable baby
Are you comfortable baby

I see you're getting restless now and you need to change your mood
I think I'm gonna make you stay and listen to the truth
You can say it doesn't bother you but I know that it's a lie

Are you comfortable baby......are you comfortable baby
Are you comfortable baby......Are you comfortable baby
Are you comfortable......Are you comfortable........ baby
Track Name: If You Could Be Me
If you could be me... and I could be you
We'd look at each other... and discover something new

You'd look through my eyes... at the one that I love
You would see in my heart...you're the one I'm dreaming of

Then you'll know... how my love for you still grows...
and it's only getting stronger everyday...

If you could love me... the way I love you
Would you open up your heart and let me through

If you would agree... to feel like I do
I would be happy... to do the same for you

You can believe... this passion is real
Trust in the moment... when our love will be revealed

Say we'll be... for all eternity...
and the love we have will never fade away

If you could be me... and I could be you
I would open up my heart and let you through

Don't you wonder what it's like inside my heart...
Understand me, and we'll never be apart...
Us together is the way it has to be...
'Cause the only one for you to love is me...

So I want you to know...that when I love you
I can only hope that you will love me too

Say we'll be... for all eternity...
and the love we have will never fade away

If you could be me... and I could be you
I would open up my heart and let you through
So you could find a way to love me too
Track Name: The Freak is On
Mysterious woman with the crystal ball, you tell me that you know me
Like a cell phone psychic when you take my call, I'll pay for you to show me
Light your candle and the session begins, are you ready to console me
Be sure no demons are allowed to get in, and don't let them control me

The freak is on.........And I and can't turn it off
This house is cold.... Are you hearing me
My over is under.......My upside is down
The freak is on.........The freak is on

There's a cold wind blowing up the back of my neck, and I think I'm hearing voices
Sounds like the devil stuck inside of my head, making scary creepy noises
I gave you money and you led me astray, but I'm looking for the truth now
Stop pretending you don't know what to say, and let the freak come through now

The freak is on.........And I and can't turn it off
This house is cold.... Are you hearing me
My over is under.......My upside is down
The freak is on.........The freak is on

Inside out eyes look at me
Freak me out I'll pay your fee
Cast about my evil ghosts
Tell them that they need to find another host
Reach my mind and set me free
The freak still lives inside of me
Cast your spell and make it go
I'm paying good money so start talking and get on with the show...

The freak is on.........And I and can't turn it off
This house is cold.... Are you hearing me
My over is under.......My upside is down
The freak is on.........The freak is on
Track Name: This Is Today
There's so many choices, so many things to hear
So I listen to the voices and take away the fear

It's time to get started, I will take control
No longer in darkness, I'm reaching for my goal

I am the way to make it happen, beginning now.....

Hearts free, the mind is open
No dreaming cause I'm living in the real world
I'm not complaining but it's hard to do
This is the moment when I reach a different point of view
I'm living like this is today

Reach down, pick up the pieces
Put them together in a way I never knew before
Not being lazy, but it takes some time
I'll make it easy when I look inside and realize.....

That I only have one part to play, and that is me...

Time to break out, time to run, time to look out for number one
Speak no evil, say a prayer, this can take me almost anywhere

There's so many places, so many thing to know
But my final destination, is wherever I will go

I am the way to make it happen, beginning now.....

Hearts free, the mind is open
No dreaming cause I'm living in the real world
I'm not complaining but it's hard to do
This is the moment when I reach a different point of view
I'm living like this is today

Reach down, pick up the pieces
Put them together in a way I never knew before
Not being lazy, but it takes some time
I'll make it easy when I look inside and realize
I'm living like this is today
Track Name: Try Harder
Like a white linen monogram.....are you ready to unfold
It shows up in a hologram.........with a message you should know
Light caught in a photograph.....so you will clearly see
No reason for looking back.......This vision holds the key

Walk up the hill, climb the tree, looking for answers to mysteries
Open your heart, change the world, see the wonders of the universe

Try hard to let the love light glow
Make an effort so this feeling can grow
Moving forward so the world can see the light
Try harder 'cause this love is in sight

Amazed by the images........opening our eyes
We are the witnesses..........to the love that we provide
Finding all passages...........showing ways to work it through
Meeting any challenges......whatever we must do

Standing tall, reach up high, after a while you begin to fly
through the air, over the world, beyond the wonders of the universe

Try hard to let the love light glow
Make an effort so this feeling can grow
Use the power that is deep within your heart
Try harder....try harder to love.....

I walk up the mountain and I search the sky
I'm waiting for a signal, I'm standing by
I won't back down, I'll stay the course
and go beyond the world and into the universe
Wouldn't you like to know all the wonder of the universe.....

Try hard to let the love light glow
Make an effort so this feeling can grow
Use the power that is deep within your heart
Try harder....try harder to love.....
