    Beauty and quality clothing the sounds, featuring the artistic eye and brush of Justyne Griffin, the camera lens of Alexas Esposito, and the finishing touches of Pat Burke on the design and duplication.

    Worth it just for the insert, where you'll find some sprawling lyrics and a letter in my own hand set upon Justyne's incredible watercolors.

about

conceived on the metro in Paris

lyrics

The air is cold
The tracks are black
They carry us forward and back
And onward to I forget where
Can’t breathe for the scent of fifty strangers’ hair

I am nothing
I am no one
The bells would still ring if I was gone
They carry me to where I want to be
To be!
I’m still longing
For your presence
Right here with me

Something tells me I’m on my own – truly this time
Funny to be suffocating yet so alone
Roasted chestnuts in newspaper wrapping that
Slip from my hands at the sound of the bells

Quick catch a glimpse
A little sky
Between many other pairs of eyes
Is this what it’s like
Living hand to mouth?
Mouths of cities
Always open
Praying hoping
Something falls in

Don’t look at me like that ‘til you have learned my name
I’m not obliged to play that game
Doesn’t the irony of humanity kill you sometimes?
One likes the sound of her heels on the pavement
While the other gets lost and found reading the letters he sent

What pulls you on?
What makes it right?
What makes you hold your head in your hands at night?
This is the thing
This is the one

SOIL VOMIT
BLUE SKY
DEEP PIT

Make your peace with the bare scream of steel and dig in your heels to the train that will do all your crying for you

What pulls it on?
