RPM Zombies! (free) 01:55
this is another connection of you and me breaking time out on the see-through surface pixels refract at the hand-drawn sky you percolate the sun-spot while I calibrate my eyes we see the lake upside down there’s nothing left and nothing in my mind got 29 days till the whole world’s over got 99 ways to hand this over this is a rake left smashing out of all the lights if you couldn’t see the surface good luck with your tossed out line and I separate the products while you stack up what’s inside if I return the favor will it get you back or quietly resign? got 29 days till the whole world’s over 29 days till the whole world’s over got 99 ways to hand this over

we’re in a shotgun house with modern spots and situations falling out the sky outside we’re in an open house photos of the deep end fighting on the ceiling there’s an empty swimming pool outside fill it with plans so we can lead the next uprising fill it with satellites transmit every message right if it’s for the greater good maybe I woke up too soon we’re in an artist park staring at the cross winds sleepin in the deep end tearin up the leaves outside we’re in a switcharoo playing other people only to retrieve them there’s an open parking spot outside fill it with plans so we can lead the next uprising fill it with satellites transmit every message right if it’s for the greater good maybe I woke up too soon fill it with plans so we can lead the next uprising fill it with satellites transmit every message right if it’s for the greater good maybe I woke up too soon

this is my line deep fried and upright got another plan comin this is my call to tell you what I’m thinkin cause it never gets old strung up by your laces in a southern appetite see the lake as a perspective for this February night then I saw the sun I spiked the fight I felt alive in a dream that I had the other night I slowed the sun. I spiked the fight. and I felt alive in a dream I had about the songs that I wrote last night

A Ga-billion Years (free) 02:25
wake it up, wake it up confine find the ashes well I don’t know what can we uncover once the veil is undone? well I don’t know yeah I’m wishing for eternity doesn’t seem that odd you're wrapped up in a foreign embrace and I just need to let it 2,3,4 take it up, take it up with someone someone who cares this queue is gone sinking underwater like you descends yeah I’m wishing for eternity doesn’t seem that odd you’re wrapped in a foreign embrace and I just need to let it 3,2,4

Lillian (of Lockport) (free) 02:30
I see you but it isn’t like you to break through another description hurry in, sweet Lillian and I found you another prescription mood so blue, but I couldn’t move you hurry in, sweet Lillian before the clock strikes 12 and all things change all things change except for who we are and I found you another collision walls undue by I couldn’t move through hurry in, sweet Lillian and I see you but it isn’t like you to break through another addiction hurry in, my Lillian before the clock strikes 12 and all is off before the clock strikes 12 and all is lost, or lust

so what? got faces in the sand with little laces comin out a heavy hand for what’s under ya got symbols in the lake pick a nice equation for the model of your instrumental I broke the sun with bleach for my highlights I blocked the light - half-squeezed lime I broke the sun with bar-chords and bad rhymes I see Dorothy comin out a live with a lit-up scarecrow surfin the lakes who’ve guessed he’d unfold? so what? got time to understand a little mace you’re serving is a culmination waiting for ya but I don’t understand this being much of a problem with the leeches taking what you’re serving I broke the sun with chords on the levee I see the light cutting out a line did you bring the glasses? I blocked the fight living in Paris this is alright ;comment out a line if you think of something ;comment out a line if you lead you must say so what? I see you’re up coming out of line if you think of something coming out of line if you think you’re something so what? I heard so what coming out of line now you think you’re something ;comment out a line if you think you’re something coming out a line if you’re keys are coming ;comment out a line if you think of something ;comment out a line if you think you’re something

The Moon Speaks A Lot (free) 02:42
feels good at last coming in fast a thousand torpedoes imagine the math the moon speaks a lot can’t tell what he’s saying the moon reaches out and lights up the path that I will be taking too good to give up that piece of its past and all of the hunters know fear’s hard to pass the moon speaks a lot can’t tell what he’s saying lights up the path that I will be taking

here’s a story about a planet you get it it’s an efflorescence inside a candle i’m living in the words to my songs are all that I know and the strings that carry me are the roots that crack the seams so when do we know just where we’re headed indebted and why are we so? we never looked out the corners there words in our hearts from the words in our eyes and the things that we can see paragraphs we’re meant to read tonight I think twice about the world and I just smile please remember what I remember there is an emotion hammer a bit of glamour I wanna think I’m wasting my time concentrating on flaws and the themes that carry me are the roots that crack the seams would you tell me what I remember so I can just watch it over until it’s ended I didn’t stock the wooden-backed lawn with a picket fence and dog to the house of my thoughts lined in cellophane moss tonight I think twice about the world cuz tonight I unwind another world is at my sight

To Another Town (free) 02:31
Sung underneath the waters sounds like sonic hammering of glass just before it’s hardened the bubbles swim and carry me to another town where a waterfall is the currecny o, and the people come to swim and to breathe and Howard says he isn’t tired cuz Jazz and scat are smooth and free the sound of Bebop in a bottle strands the shaman in a tree in another town basketball is the currency and the people come to fall asleep no one know why they’re all marrying

wait for someday to uncover what’s before me straight and narrow the sun is diving into tomorrow sort the chatter crack the arrow well I’m part of this time a lot like the sky-line in for the rain out for the fire where’s your shadow in the mire? drape your medal show your stature what’s becoming of this era? well I’m part of this time a lot like the sky-line and I’m part of this time a lot like the sky-line

about

Come with us now on a journey through February 2012 ... which begins with a race against time that transforms us into musical pizza zombies. Click tracks mostly absent, auto-tune non-existent (sorry), inspired by the moon out above the LSU lakes, eternity, Lockport, and Tubas. I hope you enjoy this little slice of home studio pyrite - recorded and mixed mostly at night in Baton Rouge and Lafayette Louisiana.
