we aspire to bring you the highest quality audio, however, please note that tracks 8-13 are a live radio broadcast which (despite our attempts to rectify) has traces of distortion and some erratic levels. Steven Langdons mastering can work miracles, but the source material still provides limitations. we apologize, but feel the performance delivers a complete picture of this project and present it to you, the listener, as a completion of this song cycle.

With apologies to Nazo Zakkak and Randy Chiurazzi. What ever happened to Sarah Paik?

thanks - Ora Cogan, Azuka Nduka, Rafter, BC, Alissa and the fire, Carleigh and the Tailor.

Track Name: dead slant
i've got the feeling this won't last too long
and then your dead eyes tell me i was wrong
i've closed the door and locked the key
i shut the lights and head for home
i've got this feeling this won't last too long

you've got that dead slant in your eyes again
your hands are frigid and your smile is gone
my hands are shaking like a stone
they start to tremble with your kiss
you've got that dead slant in your eyes again

last night i saw your picture on the news
you looked so good that i just had to smile
if you only knew how you've changed
i'll take your picture for your family
last night i saw your picture on the news

i've got the feeling this won't last too long
our little party has come to an end
i'll move you somewhere you'll be safe
i'll come and visit when spring comes
its time to move and we've come to an end
Track Name: on the rack again
two hundred miles from home
two hours till dawn
just trying to keep awake
and move on

no time to look back
straight light ahead
just trying to move on
and get away

i left my home on fire
two shots in him
its all for the best
to move on

i'm on the long road
cold light till dawn
but thats what it takes
to move on
Track Name: memorize my shadow
what does a mirror hold?
what shadows in my window
almost end time for me
(what does a mirror hold)

slow silver moon
like a million times before
in the night sky
(what does a mirror hold)

what does a mirror hold?
what time is left now?
almost slips by for me
(what does a mirror hold)

why is the wind so bold?
and there is nothing left here
it takes too long to leave
(what does a mirror hold)

soft slow burn
and the smell of burning flesh
cauterize my eyes
(what does a mirror hold)

why is the wind so bold?
it's silent scream
almost slips by again
(what does a mirror hold)

never have i felt so free
and my cup is empty
burning down to the ground
(what does a mirror hold)

I must admit
I have thought of this before
always my eyes
(what does a mirror hold)

what does a mirror hold?
what time is left now?
almost slips by for me
(what does a mirror hold)
Track Name: untitled ballad
now that you're gone
i've got
room in my bathroom
room in my cupboard
room in my bed

its been so cold
the fire burns all night
fire for warmth
burn away
give me space and peace

now that you're gone
i've got
space for my slippers
space for my teacup
space for my head

its been so cold
the fire burns all night
burns these bones
burn away
nothing left but ash

burn these bones
burn away
let the fire burn bright

burn these bones
burn away
give me time to rest

burn these bones
burn away
make me clean and free
Track Name: the shutoff valve
witching hour
almost light
almost dawn
moving on

fire is gone
almost light
almost dawn
sold my last
moving on

field dreams
creek dreams
blind dreams
cold spring

field dreams
creek dreams
blind dreams
cold spring
Track Name: scarecrow
why won't you be my last straw?
when can i sink my claws into your back?

oh scarecrow why won't you be mine
oh scarecrow why won't you be mine

witch hunter dialect
dial it
file it
i'll buy it

oh scarecrow why won't you be mine
oh scarecrow why won't you be mine

my arms are burning
my skin on fire
the fog sounds out the town crier
no sun
no wind
too still
no thrill
when will you leave?

i'm sneaking around
i will let you down
scarecrow down below
which way the wind blows?

i'm sneaking around
i will let you down
on and on and on and on

we were not made for winter
Track Name: fence for a cliff
hold me back
hold me down
falling
falling
Track Name: dead slant (live)
i've got the feeling this won't last too long
and then your dead eyes tell me i was wrong

you've got that dead slant in your eyes again
your hands are frigid and your smile is gone
my hands are shaking like a stone

you've got that dead slant in your eyes again
