about

A concept album. Nine stories of different people dealing with different stages of life. Some more terminal than others. Some desperate… some building from scratch. The heartbreak of death. A longing to start again when life is mostly over. A young boy with his father. A man that loses his religion but finds his soul. A last ditch attempt to connect. An alternate timeline. And above all, acceptance of life right now.

Track Name: Why Don't You Call Home
The day we went walking down town together
Through the rain and sleet and snow
How on earth was I supposed to know

You were a ghost and my heart blue
I couldn't see you from my point of view
Felt like like a hole in an old canoe

So I said,
Why don't you phone home
Why don't you phone home

On a cold lake in late december
Like a dog with an old raw bone
Holding on too much to make it home

We threw around a few bad ideas
And settled on the one that made you cry
I knew better than to ask you why

So I said,
Why don't you call home
Why Don't You call home

So we walk some more and hatch a plan
We'll leave this little town in the old white van
We'll travel to the coast and then head south
We'll teach our kids our history by word of mouth
Track Name: This Is Why We Fight
We ran till we fell hit the bell and then hit the interstate too late
You held to my arm cotton warm and then settled down to wait
Again, again, again

Our feet hit the dirt as we assert our right to feel in love, again, again
The time it took to change was about the time it took rearrange our souls
Again, again again

This is why we fight. This is why change why we rearrange this is why cry.
This is why we fight. This is why change why we rearrange this is why cry.
This is why we fight. This is why change why we rearrange this is why cry.
This is why we fight. This is why change why we rearrange this is why cry.

Every little bit of gain we'd obtain we open heartily agreed, we'd do it again, again…

I know why you hold my hand, ya I know why you hold my hand…
Track Name: Hurt Feelings
We walked until our feet were sore, had no where left to go. Except into the lake.
Crystal blue nothing to do we took off all our clothes, so tired of feeling fake.

Suffering from our hurt feelings
Running from all future dealings

Somehow we always knew it would boil down to this. One coin away from toss
But nonsense has always ruled the better part of life, it’s just hard to walk across

Suffering from our hurt feelings
Running from all future dealings

Ya, and when our feet hit the ground..
I can't be sure we won’t be found.
And i feel like I have no skills,
No smiles anymore for the forgotten ills.

Suffering from our hurt feelings
Running from all future dealings
Track Name: Do You Trust Me
I called around but no one’s listening
The skies are black with ten thousand whispering souls
The cards change hands, the plot is thickening
How we made it this far know one knows

Maybe we'll sleep or maybe just dream.
Or maybe we'll keep floating down stream

Annie do you trust me. Annie do you care.
You and I both know, know that something's in the air
And it’s terminal, we both know what that means
Looks like hope again, but smells like dirty gasoline

Maybe we'll sleep or maybe just dream.
Or maybe we'll keep floating down stream

And the times that we were near whoo who whoooo
Were the time we had no fear whoo who whoooo
And we both know, we’ve got a million more to go…

Maybe we'll sleep or maybe just dream.
Or maybe just keep floating down stream
Are you OK, are you OK are you OK Annie…
Track Name: Out Of Touch Out Of luck
I waited for the grass to grow long, to say so long
But the principle was always the main thing
So up we went and changed our names, she claims
That it was always meant to be this way, aching

Out of touch, out of luck, out of all the things that got us stuck
Out of our minds, our hearts remind, life’s not the only thing that brought us here

ohhhh… life's not the only thing that got us here.

Ending all transmission from what seems a dream
But I always knew that we’d come home in the rain
Jumping holes and swimming streams, we lost steam
But it was always meant to be this way, aching

The whole damn thing hurts, am I out of luck?
But uncertain circles, they call that love
Because, because, because, because...

I’m out of touch, and out of luck, out of all the things that got me stuck
Out of my mind, my heart reminds, life’s not the only thing that brought me here

ohhhh… life's not the only thing that got me here.

End transmissio
Track Name: I Want That Back
I heard that sound like the middle of the night, when it wakes you up and you can't move from fright
The dawn breaks through, and you attach to the fading night like as if I could reach you…

And I want that back...

Remember that time when it rained so hard and we went outside and laid down in the grass in the back yard,
Faces to the sky opened our young eyes and we talked about the future we had nothing then. And we had nothing then to hide.

And I want that back,, yeh I want that back, oh I want that back… but not like that.

And I feel nothing now, deep down inside, but I guess that’s something so I’ll try not to hide my feelings.
And I feel no pain, but that’s between you and me, because human is as human does, and it's all about concealing, your heart.
You heart, your heart, your heart…

And I want that back,, yeh I want that back, oh I want that back… but not like that...
Track Name: Let Me Go
I heard you’re in love again. I don't need anything but I feel so alone
I’ll be in bed by ten. Don't worry bout calling then I'll have the ringer off the phone.

But I miss the days that we never had and the cool breeze as a young lad. When our feet could take us. Anywhere we'd want to go

I thought we could take a stroll. Just like we used to do when we were young and we could talk.
It'll probably rain again and we'll have to wait it out where that tree covers the walk.

I miss the days that we never had and the cool breeze as a young lad. When our feet could take us. Anywhere we'd want to go

We'll climb the tree. You'll sit by me. We can live up there. Cause there'll be no one to miss. And no one will care up there.

Ya I miss the days that we never had and the cool breeze as a young lad. When our feet could take us. Anywhere we'd want to go… Let me go, let me go, let me go… let me go.
Track Name: You Can't Bury Us
They tried to bury us. They didn’t know we were seeds
So we grew while holding hands through the mountains of weeds.
And when the sun won’t shine we walk blindly on
Because the grass is always greener by the rivers of dawn

They tried to carry us, but our feet work fine.
We didn’t know how good it was until we could take our time
Put one foot in front, lean on that one
We don’t want anyone to carry us, or pull us, or push us and bury us

You’ll never bury us
You can’t carry us
And I will not let my heart die.
Track Name: Dad's Song
There’s nothing like the peace of mind here
Smell of players lites and old beers
And fishing line, that old tackle box, me and you
And the time I forgot

When I was young, and you were still young
Before we moved away from Shilo
When you let me drive on the farm when I was five
And we hit the fence,

You didn’t skip a beat that cold day
I watched you back it back it on the lane say
It’s just a car, and we had fun
Now let’s go home, but don’t tell your mom

Now your gone, and I kinda miss, all the things that we never did
I know why, you had to go, but you knew things I think I’ll never know
Ya, I’ll never know, I'll never hear, I can never ask, why you disappeared
