about

Mostly recorded in the spring of 09' in a converted garage/studio that had a couch and a pillow on the couch that was the best smelling pillow in the universe.

Finishing touches and other fun was had at another house that has ghost squirrels...

Track Name: Weight of Moons
Lyrics by C. Vincent Plummer

you wanna know that you occupy
the space of Jupiter in his eyesight

in his ocular cavity there's a red storm
it's lifeless and without form

while i'm just another moon spinning in circles
a slave to orbit Jupiter

let's break free of his
gravitational hold
on you and me

=-=-=-=
I don't pull you
the way you pull me
=-=-=-=

you accelerate like a light beam
your motion is relative, theoretically

a celestial rarity that i could explore
for eternity leave me wanting more

we could be renegades
escape in a black hole

heaven's anarchists
our star song

but time has a mythological hold
on you and me

=-=-=-=
but I don't pull you
the way you pull me
=-=-=-=
Track Name: Gangster is a Bureaucrat
Lyrics by C. Vincent Plummer

trade it all in
break the roll of the dimes
its the heart of the crime
it's nature of the beast

robbers

fill out the form
take it right over there
sign the bottom
initial here
making sure to pay the fine
behind the glass
behind the wall
behind his fucking red felt pen
behind his tape, plastic red
behind the number on the wall

placating robbers
Track Name: Stars
Lyrics by Dave Devine

I tried to count all the stars in the sky - last night
It doesn't matter where you are in my mind.

Lights moving faster and sound traveling toward your ears.
Hear the waves carry my thoughts, hopes, prayers and fears.
Track Name: Sweeping Shadows
Lyrics by C. Vincent Plummer

sweeping shadows
off the sidewalk
all day long

birds of prey
all around
polish our talons
until the sun goes down

all the boots
on the ground
sign up for detail

all we need
glory... a freedom story.

sweeping shadows
off the sidewalk
all day long

all the support and all the dissent
is all so confusing behind our guns

beyond your needs
we remain employed,
with golden handcuffs

all we need
glory... a freedom story.

sweeping shadows
off the sidewalk
sweeping shadows
all day long
Track Name: If you can't sit still
Lyrics by C. Vincent Plummer

=-=-=-=-=-=

The air is cold this winter.
a hope is forlorn.

We fell hard through a net of wishes.
Made loosely, old and torn.

=-=

Save face. please.
No trace. leave.

If your gonna be gone, stay gone for good.
If your running away, where are you?

If your gonna come home, come home for good.
When the dream is gone.

=-=

Tried on the brand new
Found out it's not you.

Your lost in a maze of mirrors.
Absorbed in the untrue.

Save face. please.
No trace. leave.

If your gonna be gone, stay gone for good.
If your running away, where are you?

If your gonna come home, come home for good.
When the dream is gone.

=-=

These patterns are so familiar.
How can your roots grow, if you can't sit still?

These photographs in old papers.
Cast shadows of what was..

=-=
Track Name: Always
Lyrics by C. Vincent Plummer

Another day goes by without you
Another big red X on the calender

Getting older
Breathing slower

Half my words
Are meant for you

We chase the sunset home
in my dreams

I see your silhouette
in everything

Lit your candle
Left it burning
Watch the flame
slowly flicker
Track Name: Desperation Time pt. 1
Written by C. Vincent Plummer

=-=-=-=-=

if they burn it all
will it grow again for us
sins of righteous men.
our song.

they liberate
we raise up new statues.
we speak their words.
their truth.

the empire reigns
a realm of majesty
the empire rules
for all.

document it (as they)
incinarate our history
blood is in the eyes.
of all.

times are desperate
times are desperate
times are desperate
