about

This was a fun experiment, and I learned a lot about my own strengths and weaknesses... Maybe I'll return to it some day.

Track Name: Tell You What I Know
If I let it all go
What would there be left for you and me?
I'm a workshop, not a factory
It's not harvest home

What were you wanting to know?
It's just a work week and a running joke
Don't need a favorite or a drunken poke
I can be unseen

Mic me up
Tell you what I know
Mic me up
Gonna take it slow

Tonight we'll play in the snow
There's always room for one more souvenir
Oh what a gas, another golden year
Let the record show

Mic me up
Tell you what I know
Mic me up
Gonna take it slow
Track Name: Night Job
Night job, night job...

Sunset on my window sill
Island of many hills
Deepest darkest Midtown still
I like it

Hypnotic sound and light
Another public fight
Now cock your head stage right
Just like that

No matter what goes wrong
You always know that you can sing along at your
Night job, night job...

Marx and Lenin, leather and lace
A little leg and a lot of face
Now gone without a trace
My night job

Cold, clever, queen of the stage
Keeps her man inside of a cage
I remember you were all the rage
My night job

No matter what went wrong
I always knew that I could hum along at my
Night job

Night job, night job...
Track Name: Light Bright
Deep in the center of my island
Underneath the sand and snow
I been working on a dream so dim
It’s just a shadow of a glow

Overhead it’s only starlight
The moon is nervous, moon is new
A little mystery is alright
All I ask's a little clue

Light bright, sunshine undercover
Light bright, burning through the night
Light bright, sunshine undercover
Light bright, wanna do it right

Out in the corner of my vision
I saw a place I thought I knew
It's just a message from a world gone by
Just exactly out of view

What’s coming round is always going
Start moving counter to the flow
When I see wheel is slowing
Well I guess that’s when I’ll know

Light bright, sunshine undercover
Light bright, burning through the night
Light bright, sunshine undercover
Light bright, wanna do it right

Wanna do it right
Wanna do it right

Light bright, sunshine undercover
Light bright, burning through the night
Light bright, sunshine undercover
Light bright, wanna do it right
Track Name: Waking Up
Paper spent, a lover's bent
Burn it all, I'm still flattered
On our own, campfire cologne
Ashes cold, but not scattered

Waking up, waking up
Waking up's not coming down

Dreams are lent, not heaven sent
Troubadours and screen idols
Morning sun, the night's all done
Winter breeze, cold and vital

Waking up, waking up
Waking up's not coming down

Morning sun, the night's all done
A body's work is never over
World is green, unsung, unseen
Dandelions and three-leaf clover

Waking up, waking up
Waking up's not coming down
Track Name: Somewhere In Between
What did you say?
I must have drifted away
To some fine day
When we can see all the gray

Were we talking about the ties that bind?
Feels like we talk about them all the time
Guess we could have been talking about anything

In a dream I am floating from the screen
In a dream all is only as it seems
In a dream I am floating from the screen
Somewhere in between

All through the night
Somebody's lost in the fight
The shades drawn tight
But I can't keep out the light

Everywhere I feel the ties that bind
Closing tighter on me all the time
And I'm really not feeling anything

In a dream we are floating from the screen
In a dream all is only as it seems
In a dream we are floating from the screen
Somewhere in between

(Somewhere in between...)
Youth and reason
Painful and pleasing
Freedom and function
Winter and summer
Winning and losing
Wanting and needing
Giving and taking
Waking and dreaming

(In a dream we are floating from the screen)
Track Name: Chutes and Ladders
How many souls walk the road with me?
The path goes farther than I can see
The ground is firm, I know around this turn there’s a place to be

How many people will sing these blues?
A time to gain and a time to lose
There’s nothing new but damn sometimes it’s good to be paying dues

Chutes and ladders
We will stagger on
Every sunset’s
Someone else’s dawn

Another page in the cosmic book
Life is cliche, we’re still on the hook
The dream we live ain’t lucid, but somehow we still make it through

Chutes and ladders
We will stagger on
Every sunset’s
Someone else’s dawn
Track Name: The Jordan of Strange
Wake up the dogs and start the track
Let all the dew roll off your back
The Jordan of strange
Will he respond to his name?
He’s sharp-dressed for a vagabond actor

Stitch up the hits with psych appeal
Finish a book and skip a meal
A study in orange
With JFK charms
Just an idiom, on terra firma

There's so much more
There's so much more to be
Oh, can't you see?
There's so much more
There's so much more to do
It's up to you

Cut up the clues and stack the deck
Turn in on the blues until you wreck
Like Marilyn Sane
Burning trash in the rain
Eating tarts in the garden of Eden

He’s packed up his pipes, you’re on your own
Look around you, see how far you’ve blown
The Elvis of out
Moving straight on through doubt
Holding hands with the here and the after

There's so much more
There's so much more to be
Oh, can't you see?
There's so much more
There's so much more to do
It's up to you
There's so much more
There's so much more... to do

The Jordan of Strange
Marilyn Sane
