about

The first Silent Trio show with the kids. Jim was out of town, so we did smaller, punkier arrangements. Album includes intro and interlude banter tracks, which are separated out so you can listen to these songs in mixes.

Track Name: Antarctic Sun
"i am a supernova!" said the aviator
as he stepped out on the icy island.
the old man cackled,
turned his bony back and sat
bare upon the ice in the cold antarctic sun.

in the cold antarctic sun!

the old man said,
"if you could use your tears to raise the dead
i'd have never lost my wife,
but what's done is done."
and still the wilted, withered, dried, embittered,
frantic dancing masses sing their praise
to he who saves them from the cold antarctic sun.

from the cold antarctic sun!

my vessel wrestled a bank of clouds!
speeding the still warm and breathing
to the safety of my house
but they seemed as something
septic in the angles of my empty attic
scales have been upset
by lesser things than what i've done.

blackened, broken, bruised and battered
spirit left inside.
return to do my penance i
to the cold antarctic sun.
Track Name: Seeds
innocence is sacred, oh sometimes
i guess if it makes it from sunshine to sunshine
cynicism is sacred, well alright
i guess it gets me from moonlight to moonlight

we planted seeds so that flowers may grow
what it means to the seeds, though, we’ll never know.

breathing smoke trying not to scream
so you came and said to me
"everything is alright," i said, "well, alright
but what does that mean to me?"

we planted seeds so that flowers may grow
what it means to the seeds, though, we'll never know.

we were born angels but i
traded my wings for hands
fled the sea to lie here
clutching your hand
gave up my vision trying to see
gave you my heart
trying to be free

innocence is sacred, well sometimes
only if it makes it from sunshine to sunshine
cynicism is sacred, well alright
i guess it keeps me right here by your side

we planted seeds so that flowers may grow
what it means to the seeds, though, we'll never know.

we were born angels but i
traded my wings for hands
fled the sea to die here
clutching your hand
gave up my vision trying to see
gave you my heart
trying to be free

we planted seeds so that flowers may grow
what the flowers would need, though, we didn’t know
Track Name: Poker Face
he's been watching you for weeks
tonight he puts you to sleep
calls in an emergency
dispatch sends out the call
what they don't know at all
he was with you all along

he will make you his
take souvenirs home with him
he's got all the time
he needs to watch you die

why is he taking that? it's mine.
i see the gleam in his eyes
watching the blade trace lines
i don't remember being clean
or smelling quite as sweet
as he cuts, i drift off to sleep

he will make me his
take pieces of me home with him
he's got all the time
he needs to watch me die

if he could keep you he would
like a good man should
but the smell of you would
alert the whole neighborhood

he's been watching this new girl
for a couple weeks
tonight he puts her to sleep
but all his thoughts turn to you,
pretty fairy buried deep
'neath our dirty feet

he must leave this new whore
and recover you before
he is overcome with distress
losing you would be his death

he will make you his
exhume you and take you home with him
you are everything in his eyes
his precious little prize
Track Name: Crab
i'm the banana by which the bunch is measured
everyone looks to me
whenever help is needed
oh, they look to me
it pleases me to know my place

i don't need anyone but me
crab
so let me be

i make the best floral arrangements for kings and queens
delicacy, elegance, and beauty
my sight is dim, my soul is weak, but when i bleed
delicacy, elegance, and beauty
whenever these are needed
they look to me

i don't need anyone but me
crab
so let me be
Track Name: Nothing
when the morning come and the sun do rise
it heat so up it burn my eyes
i turn my back on the sky

when the morning come and the sun do rise
i turn my back on the sky, how could you abandon the night?
but i don't mind

as long as i’ve got nothing

well the grass it grow beneath my feet
and the buffalo yeah they need to eat
so i take a walk and i touch the tree
and she burn me
yeah, she burn me
but i don't mind

as long as i’ve got nothing

ocean open up. it swallow me
it deep so much that i can't breath
but mermaid come, yeah, she rescue me
make me some kind of prophet at bottom of the sea
so lonely
i just tell em bout this world dried up and lonely
but i don't mind

as long as i’ve got nothing

nothing
yeah, nothing
nothing
nothing
Track Name: You
you don’t know if you loved me, do you?
well i’ll give you a clue
you used love like a pretty pistol and
it was all about you

you don’t care how you hurt me, do you?
do you? do you?
now i don’t care what you say about me
even if it’s all true

i lay awake at night
trying to be alright
i wake to break up fights
between nothing, and nothing

you don’t know if you loved me, do you?
well, i do. i know. i do.
i do.
