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

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.

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

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.

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.

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

See, I am making all things new.

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

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

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

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.

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.
