1.
White walls and metal chairs Boredom fills the air Nothing good to read Everyone here seems asleep I’ve always hated quiet times like these I always said a quiet time leads to atrophy Sitting here where I can’t hide The memories come from inside The low points on replay While I justify how I behaved It’s impossible when I try To erase the history from my mind I try to tell myself I was the victim of the crime I’m just looking at the clock on the wall I’m just looking for the time I’m just looking to get out of here and find some way to occupy my mind Instead of wondering If I was in the same situation What would I do
2.
Caught in between this world and the next Loved ones calling from both directions Is it selfish or is it selfless To want to move beyond the temporal Or do words like these have a different meaning When you’re balanced between The here and there Does every riddle have an answer Does every no have a reason Is every childhood pain opened Ready to receive it’s healing When you’re stuck between The now and the not yet Does it all start to make sense Is it bravery Is it knowing I guess we’re all gonna find out

about

Producer notes: Mike drove up to MN to record these songs in my "No Hoop" studio. He sent demos of each song and I recorded the live drums prior to his arrival. We recorded his keeper vocal and baritone ukulele for "side B" the first night and 3 more songs the next day, including "side A". And How finished up, after he left, by adding the guitar, bass and background vocals to the songs. It all happened so fast, but it sure was a blur of fun!
