George Barbera

Music Producer

Hi! I'm a musician, composer, producer, and teacher based in New York. Guitar is my primary instrument of 11 years. I'm currently writing and recording my second full length album, and my first purely progressive rock release. I'm also an adjunct professor of music at St. John's University, where I teach private guitar lessons and music lecture classes.

  • You hide yourself away.
    You're begging me to stay.
    Cause no one gets the way,
    You feel so truly alone.

    And there's nothing else I know,
    So rough transcribed to stone,
    The introverted snow,
    That blankets us. Try to grow.

    Something in the way our paths had strayed,
    To converge on one another, that's surely strange.
    Without faith in things like fate, I've no one to thank,
    But I am grateful.

    I sense that it will rain and I'm afraid.
    Your love is stronger than a world of tardigrades.
    I'm thinking that I'll run flat out for days,
    My feelings know the way.

  • Evolve away from ignorance, please.
    It's so hard becoming an adult, I know.
    But it's time.

    I said to religion "how dare you anthropomorphize god?"
    Religion didn't understand.
    It shalt not abort its profit plan.

    We scar the skies each day as we pass through,
    Or each time our cities breathe. The fires will take all of us.
    The world we knew returns to dust.

    We're still disruptive children.
    Let's not get punished.

  • Tomorrow we'll sit by the sea.
    We'll let the day pass.
    There will be no need to speak.
    Words only limit; the breeze is thoughtless, and free.
    Whoever we are, we will not always be.
    We'll pass as the day, erode into the sea,
    And we'll be gone.
    But we were here once, and that will always be.

    Moon, rise.

    My synapses conspire to create love for me to give to you.
    It's just a construct of the mind, but then all we perceive is too.
    It flows through the gaps, threatens to fill all forms of emptiness.
    It is the ocean, and I am its earth.

    Moon, rise.
    Pull the tides around you.
    Fall around me, in orbit, for as long as you can.

    You're my illusion, and I am yours.
    It doesn't have to be real to be real.

  • Stars or eyes,
    I'm never sure.
    My scars are lies,
    Your scratch means more.
    Over hills,
    And under clouds,
    Nothing stands that will not fall.

    Now,
    Pairing up with me,
    Don't seem so strange.
    I can't believe you'd leave.

    Now,
    Close your eyes for me.
    Don't make me make you see,
    That it was always you and me.

    Now,
    I'll take your hand again,
    And this time,
    I'll lead you to promised land.

  • Moving Forward
  • Ocean
  • Saw your face in dreams,
    Imagined what it means.
    Red plumes illuminate,
    High school skyline, won't you fade.

    I never wanted to say this,
    But you're not right. I never wanted to be this way,
    But this is how it is.
    I held on way too long,
    I got cut down.
    I landed hard on uncertain ground.
    It's ok,
    I'm moving forward.

    I never wanted to say this,
    But you're not right.
    I never wanted to be this way,
    But this is how it is.

    I was so sure, though,
    I was wrong.
    It's ok.

    I was wrong.
    It's ok.

  • I was on a lonely road,
    But I went astray.
    Take me home with you,
    Or don't leave.

    Too many words I thought I would never say,
    But love can go away.
    I see it everyday.
    Just not mine.

  • Met her in my mind while I was talking to you,
    I tried to stop but there was nothing that I could do.
    And then you told me that you loved me, and it brought me back,
    But your voice came from a distance, and I wished your words untrue.

    We feel alive together, but
    It's not real, we started too soon.
    You're all I ever knew.

    You hate the way I'm talking, say it's killing you.
    Please don't be so dramatic. We both know that it's true.
    I'm not the one for you.

    You ask me what's her name, there must be someone else,
    But it's just this girl I made up. She gives me hope, but she's not real.

    Met her in my mind while we were talking this through.
    I need her in my life because my love for you is leaving.
    I don't want it to.
    I hope you find hope too.

  • Take me to the water park,
    I just wanna see the sunshine.
    You're still standing as my mind grows dark,
    Please help me see the sunshine.
    People walking, people crawling everywhere,
    Nobody seems to see the sunshine.
    Everyone around me has a broken heart,
    Nobody smiles in the sunshine.

    I've been having feelings I can't explain.
    Sometimes I just really don't know what to say.

    Please help me see the sunshine.

    Oh say,
    Can you see fit to take my pain from me?
    You spend,
    On amusement made so our frontal lobes recede.
    Hook electrodes to my temples,
    Light em up and set my mind at ease.

  • Suburbs
  • Ocean
  • "Alive," said the raindrop, that was, in fact, not.
    No one will stop shooting. From out there, we're just a dot.
    Living is so easy, that your brain was let to rot.
    No one hears the beating of God's fists against the lock.
    Let's keep it that way.

    I wish to apologize for all the things I never said.
    A word to you would fall from me, from my deep head to incomplete.
    Everything I seem to say starts with I and ends right there.
    Does anyone know a single thing about anybody else?
    Every day just feels the same, I haunt my house, I feel no pain.
    We're all in pain.
    The suburbs smile.
    We smoke and smile back.

    I closed my eyes one night,
    And I saw my dreams come crashing down.
    And I hope they crash so loud.

  • Smile
  • Ocean
  • I'm feeling pretty sick today,
    The sky above has gone away.
    Hours come and pass astray,
    But I'm just here waiting.
    I've got so few words to say,
    Nothing's easy for an empty face.
    I see friends walking down my block,
    But I can't reach out to them.

    And I feel so numb,
    And every step is a backwards one.
    And I feel so numb,
    And every smile is just to cover up.

    I know I just need to wait it out,
    But these days are so short cause I wake up when they're almost over,
    And I miss so much.
    Seven years is a long, long time.
    For a twenty-one year old who just needs to smile.
    I guess I do sometimes.

    But I feel so numb,
    And every step is a backwards one.
    And I feel so numb,
    And every light is just a cover up.

    I don't want anyone to worry.
    I don't want anyone to feel helpless like I do.
    If this has not killed me yet, it never will, at least not today.
    This is the reason why I won't get close to you.

    I'm feeling pretty sick today,
    Every smile is miles away.
    I think I'll stay in bed, and pretend.
    I'll pretend.
    That I'm dead.
    Cause I feel dead.

  • Adift
  • Ocean
  • A breeze gets lost across the sea.
    Moonlight's gliding on this glassy surface solitude.
    My ears are dreaming pleasant words:
    Gentile whispers from the drifting minds lovers left behind.

    All the world is just the sea.
    Lanterns rising from the ocean depths light their way past me.
    These oars are dripping red on black:
    Iron perfume ripples freely from the center of my chest.

    I know,
    I know there's no right way to feel,
    But this way is most certainly wrong.
    I don't even want this to heal.
    I'm caught between this dreamworld and the cold, cold, cold, cold, cold.
    This girl I know is crying alone.
    Her name means the end of smiles.
    I met her ten lifetimes ago.
    And now I hear voices all day.
    At night they go away.
    The silence makes me scream.

    Here I stand,
    On the joyless shore of Acheron.
    I will think of you,
    And none will remember me.

  • I'm hearing voices all around me.
    They're saying, "close your eyes."
    I'm tired, but I don't wanna sleep yet.
    There's still so much to see.

    I don't wanna,
    I don't wanna,
    I don't wanna go.

    Little blond haired boy,
    In a bright green hat.
    So proud of mom and dad.
    I wish that you could see this too.
    Stay up all night with me.

    They always tell you that everybody dies alone.
    But now I'm thinking there's nothing wrong with that simplicity.
    The constellations just look so nice right next to me.
    I'm floating by my self now.
    Sea of tranquility.
