For Mark when he writes songs he is not so much concerned about the rhyming, as many are. He thinks of lyrics as being more of a composition, the words in the song should mean something and have feeling. A song should be real and honest, he likes to make songs about how he feels and things going on in the world. His new song “Invisible” is a good example. His new CD coming out he will be accompanied by his new band, the Last Sensations.
