about

porches Portland, Oregon

Trained in the ways of the gun and the axe, in wrangling tornadoes and dancing in the face of danger, in drinking without a straw and punching without a fist.

Track Name: Red Wolf
Red wolf on the run
The stars they all bow down
To the coming of the dawn

And dead men in the fog
Drift awhile with me
Sifting through the trees

The timber echoes along
And I lose myself in time
And the comfort of this song
Track Name: Glanton's Guns
Shouldering the saddle with bloody cuffs
Never should have trusted a dead man's bluff
There's no mercy below the sun
When moonlight's gleaming off Glanton's guns

Just stay low my only son

Shouldering the saddle with bloody cuffs
Never should have trusted a dead man's bluff
There's no mercy below the sun
When moonlight's gleaming off Glanton's guns

Just stay low my only son

We'll tarry in the canyon 'til morning comes
And wait until the carrion dogs have gone
We'll tarry in the canyon 'til morning comes
And wait until the carrion dogs have gone
Track Name: Bells
Listen to the foghorns blow
Into the harbor air
Watch the nightmen swill their wine
And dance the thoroughfare
While the moon ignites
The cemetery grounds
And the silver ribs
Of the bells

We lowered down the milliner
Who'd finally passed away
We lowered down a family
Who had burned in the cabaret
And strung the nickel wire
From the caskets through the clay
To the bells

Nothing when my eyes are wide
But the vagueness of a dream
Coils of soft white sawdust
Opal eyes of a galaxy
But before the rest is silence
Comes a distant hammering
Of the bells

Narrower our ceiling
Narrower our floors
Narrower and narrower
Our beds below the boards
No, we're alive, we're alive!
The bells
Track Name: So Amazing
Whoa! So amazing!
(squirrel sounds)
Track Name: Black Balloons
Mary nail the beds down
The children floating off again
Over trees and floodplains
In the air and dreaming

To the moonlight yawning
Passing over miles of sand
If we let them float all night
They'll be gone by morning

Henry grab the earrings
We'll need them to erase the debt
Let them drop to soldiers
In exchange for bayonets

Harriet come closer
Don't let them see your silhouette
We're just black balloons now
Backing up a loaded gun

Skinny legs skywalking
Family trees time warping
Track Name: Magic Bullet
I saw a leaf tumbling through
An avenue, an avenue
As full as my heart
The cure pushing through
Amphetamine blues
Your Mythylene blue

All of the blood in my hometown
Was easily drained, so easily drained
All of the blood in my hometown
Was easily drained, so easily drained

I saw the eyes, like crystalline skies
Of houses I knew, houses I knew
Burnt from inside
By new living dead
While needles and thread
Made exodus beds

All of the blood in my hometown
Was easily drained, so easily drained
All of the blood in my hometown
Was easily drained, so easily drained
Track Name: Hemingway
I am a tired lion
Lyin' spread out on the grass
Yawning as you pass

I am a hungry hunter
Hidin' rifle in my hand
Ready to make my stand

Hemingway hear me roar
