Things Left On Earth

(Woodpile Records release November 3, 2015)

Cherry Tomatoes (Kate Terrell)

cherry tomatoes and acrobats
with sling shots as a matter of fact

girl on a trapeze with a wind-blown hat
in flip-flops imagine that

will you be mine?
walk in the sunshine

marionettes are dancing cats
in little blue suits so fancy that

diplomats aristocrats and bureaucrats
guess what chit chat is a matter of fact

will you be mine?
walk in the sunshine

moths in the light and the dancing bear
tread softly by the darkened lair

muscle man emerges with a bear tattoo
taking to the tall grass looking for you

elephant ride
sway side to side
to see

you are my friend until the end
you are my friend until the end

walk in the sunshine
will you be mine?

Mahogany (Caralyn Snyder)

tripping and skipping around the table
around the table we run
laughing and skipping around the table
around the table we ran

there are hearts more than houses
where we settle us in
the lion and the mouse is
much more that a childish grin

such perfidious thoughts
obtain the day
none dare let them  
sway away

tripping and skipping around the table
around the table we ran
laughing and skipping around the table
around the table we ran

he in so fancy a suit and tie
of so very thin a veneer
she simply looked him in the eye
it causes a tear
no, two
these hundred years

such perfidious thoughts
obtain the day
none dare let them  
sway away

tripping and skipping around the table
around the table we run
laughing and skipping around the table
around the table we run

friends write songs to assuage the mood
she could only stop and stare and brood
hovering over his desk today
it must have been mahogany


Nothing (Jeremiah Teutsch)

woke up early morning in the rain
in the alley by the Outpost trying to catch the next dream
we split the last of the best between us
and we were just waiting on the Land of Nothing never was
waiting on the Land of Nothing never was

Hayes and Mary with a baby in a van sitting on the front lawn
four three two one and the race is on
with a few more dollars, Mary, we could buy that bus I heard him say
and they were just waiting on the Land of Nothing never was
waiting on the Land of Nothing never was, never was

sitting on the front porch trying to fight back the tears
it's been too many cigarettes too many lonely nights and beers
all I want is a hug right now all I’ve got is a buzz
and I was just waiting on the Land of Nothing never was
waiting on the Land of Nothing never was

now the cars and clouds and years they pass me by
on the dark side of thirty now and I don't know why
looking back now maybe I think it was all because
I was waiting on the Land of Nothing never was
waiting on the Land of Nothing never was

waiting on the front porch in the rain

See You Still (Hills Snyder)

empty farmhouse not to far from here  
empty table inside all covered in dust
a chair has been moved around rather recently
you see the front door’s locked but the back she ain’t got a key

seen you coming right over the hill  
seen you coming right over that hill  
seen you coming right over the hill  

and I see you still

sun shines down like a beam just blowing me up
dust on the road you know she sticks to my shoes
I like to say in a way it don’t get me down
the key to that door she ain’t never gonna be found

seen you coming right over the hill  
seen you coming right over that hill  
seen you coming right over the hill  
 
back at the farmhouse somebody throws a breaker
the tap she’s running but the light she ain’t on
table is clean chair right there back in its place
I wish I could have been there just to see your face

seen you coming right over the hill  
seen you coming right over that hill  
seen you coming right over the hill

seen you coming

in a dream
