about

These tracks were recorded live during an afternoon of practicing in my friend Mike "Zeke" Lashua's living room. After recording, I headed off to play a show with the Andrea Carter Band. While we rocked Madison, my car window was smashed and some dude took my laptop. Luckily, I had saved these recordings to my external HD, which didn't get jacked. After a few months, I sorted through the songs, split them up into this list, and uploaded them to the mighty internet. A week later, my HD fell to the floor, forever erasing the raw audio from that day. This page is all that remains.

Track Name: New Kind of Magic
We were scared to close our eyes
Deception was our only fear
But when you wear the right disguise
You always disappear

I'm looking for a new kind of magic
Could you be a new kind magic?
Isn't it tragic how quickly I believe
That you had nothing up your sleeve.
Out looking for a new kind of magic

We were scared to close our eyes
The future was our only fear
We should our heads and whispered lies
Guess what, it's here.

Look around you
It's a stranger's world
It'll never feel the same

I'm looking for a new kind of magic
Could you be a new kind of magic?
Isn't it tragic how quickly I believe
That you had nothing up your sleeve
Isn't it tragic how we lost it all again
Just to find it all again?
Out looking for a new kind of magic
Track Name: Frozen Feet
Move, oh frozen feet
Uncomfortable as it may seem
No you can't go back
Smile, you're under attack
And what else can you do?

On the road to Breckenridge
You didn't cross my mind. I'm sorry.
I just don't care enough, I guess,
To move along.
We only learn to love what's gone.
Track Name: Show Your Faces
Even from our opposite ends of the couch
Silently wrestling doubt
I feel the spirits work their magic
Just enough courage to do nothing at all
Wearing a tread in the ground
Nothing perfect, nothing tragic

Color in these empty spaces
Show your faces
Let me see
Now you know my hiding places
Show your faces
Carefully

Somebody stop me cuz I'm trying to leave
Before there's anything to love or to grieve
Nothing perfect, nothing tragic

Make me frantic
Make me move
Make me alive like you
Break me and make me
All over again
Make me new
Track Name: Forgetful
It's written on your face
In permanent marker
So everyone can see so clearly
The silence I can taste
It's bitter and cold,
It's bitter and cold.

The world's a bigger place,
Getting louder and louder
And a little more forgetful by the hour.
The fire, we can't replace
If even the burning embers
Are gone. What can I do?

I'm not a fool,
I know you're trying to forget me.
I'd love to help but not today.
I'm not a fool,
I know you're trying to regret me.
I'd love to help but not today.
Track Name: Night and Day
Why can't you hear me?
I'm nearly shouting your name
Through the day and the night.
I see through the distance
I see familiar relief
But there's no sign of life.

I know it sounds dramatic
But the stars will explode
Into meteorites
That burst through the atmosphere
And slowly decay.

Night and day
Another mystery of time and space
Awake, lift your head
As I stumble to bed
And drift away
Night and Day

Why can't I hear you
A million miles away
From a satellite?
Cuz when they descend
Your words struggle to stay
Awake.

Night and day
Another mystery of time and space
Awake, lift your head
As I stumble to bed
And drift away
Night and Day

Why can't you hear me?
I'm nearly shouting your name!
Is the moonlight not bright enough for you?
No! The sun never stays through the night and the day.
Track Name: Realign
The stars in the Western sky
Are brighter than they were last night
The stars in the Eastern sky
Are nowhere to be seen at all.

(I'm sorry, but I don't know what to say)
Yeah, you're coming home today
(Could we just wait a little?)
Alright. OK.
(What are we supposed to do now?)
Hope the planets find a way
To realign.

I'm losing a lot of blood
And my mind is on fire
I'm losing a lot of blood
And my mind is on fire
Track Name: All Things New
See, I am making all things new.
Track Name: Everyone is Running For [His or Her Life]!
I thought I'd go to seminary
Teach sinners how to live
It turns out my voice won't carry
And what advice can this sinner give?

And so
It seems
I'm back here again

Or maybe I'll be a teacher
Anything to satisfy my pride

And so
It seems
I'm back here again
Where life
Gets hard to find.
I try to go where you have told me,
Everywhere it's all the same:
Getting good at getting in your way.
And as I lie here wide awake
I see as clear as I was born:
Everyone is running for their lives!
Everyone is running for their lives!

Hold on
I've got a really good idea
Track Name: Version 2.0
You can teach me to repeat
Intelligence, artificial
For every new machine I meet
Guarded words and guided missiles.

Shut down, they wanna know
Where the broken pieces go.

Turn me off and take me apart
No blood, no brain, no heart
I'm wired to do as I'm told
Turn me off and tear me apart
No love, no pain, no heart
I'm wired with Version 2.0
Track Name: My Eyes Haven't Adjusted
You know I wanna believe you
But when the answers come and go
Questions turn to shadows
It's harder to see you
It's harder to see at all
My eyes haven't adjusted
And I'm feeling along the wall with my own hands again.

How am I doing so far?
Pretty big shoes to fill
And these feet are pretty small
How am I doing so far?
I hear you calling but I'm so good at falling
Track Name: For a While
The goal is welcome solitude,
A tricky change of lanes
Because the bar was set too high.
The golden ages loved my attitude
But now it always rains
The harder I try.

And maybe I won’t get there for a while
Maybe I won’t get there for a while.

Bend me back,
Now I’m falling out of style.
I saw the spotlight
For a while.

Even sunshine lost it’s charm,
Returned it to the moon.
I’ll never understand.
Mystery should sound a strange alarm
Like a whistling balloon
Escapes an empty hand.

And maybe I won’t get there for a while
Maybe I won’t get there for a while

Bend me back,
Now I’m falling out of style.
I saw the spotlight
For a while.
