Yonatan Wolowelsky No words to describe this, a psychotic mix of dozen genres squeezed into one crazy band. Favorite track: Separation Anxiety.

Soshanna ♥ Whoa, I really dont even know what I just heard, but I am blown away by the dirty, gritty, groovy, smooth, bluesy coolness that slaps you in the face with some attitude, and doesnt apologize for anything... Favorite track: God, Country, Grave.

Frank Lang You can't pigeonhole these guys into one genre of music. That's one of the reasons they're one of my faves. Favorite track: Tire Swing Blues.

So many drains goin down in the Earth So many drains flowin down in the Earth All of these drains goin down in the Earth Tell me Good Mama, does it hurt? So many birds flyin' up in the sky So many birds tryin' up in the sky SO many birds flyin' across the sky I wonder where the music goes to die So many keys hangin' off of my ring So many keys janglin' off of my ring All of these keys hangin' off of my ring I gotta find a lock for these things So many stars hung up on the sky So many stars brung up on the sky So many stars hung up on the sky I wonder where they go when they die So many bands drivin' 'round in their vans So many bands ridin' 'round in their vans So many bands drivin' 'round in their vans Filling up their plans with some fans So many lost hung up on alone So many lost, together alone Everyone's lost, hung up on alone Tell me why you can't go home So many bells ringin' into my ears All of these bells ringin' into my ears So many bells ringin' into my ears it's the alarm goin' off on my career So many wells goin down in the Earth All of these wells dug deep in the Earth So many wells goin down in the Earth Tell me Good Mama, does it hurt?

Well, is this what you wanted? Your teeth are diamond studded You always smilin' at me, when I ain't got any teeth. Convince yourself that it's workin' Hang up a new set of curtains So it remains unseen that your windows ain't clean Honey so sweet when it's stolen Consider us the Killer Bees We're comin' for whoever's holdin If you got it, you gotta forget it So this is free and equal, huh? And you're origi-not-a-sequel, huh? Sharp tongue, silver spoon Damn, your mouth got lotsa room. Well is this what you wanted? Your soles are diamond studded and I ain't got any feet. Stop walking on me.

Half Mile 02:20
Woke up today, I woke up awake Turns out the end of the world wasn't another fake I've slept through an apocalypse or two in my time But this one was for me, it wasn't for you it's mine Half a mile from Memphis, twice as far from piece of mind branches fumble leaves in tired Tennessee sunshine I'm mulling over last night's sin; she stitched lion on my pillow now I'm a mouse again I was hailing a cab, she was hailing a cab but all these neon lights make my girl look so drab We got helium kisses, we can rise above the Windy Pissers using their lips for love for why? Half a mile from Memphis, twice as far from piece of mind branches fumble leaves in tired Tennessee sunshine I'm mulling over last night's sin; she stitched lion on my pillow now I'm a mouse again Detach yourself, drop your fuckin' phone together we're all just together alone I got your status right here in my hand it says, "everything worth doing isn't planned." Half a mile from Memphis, twice as far from piece of mind branches fumble leaves in tired Tennessee sunshine I'm mulling over last night's sin; she stitched lion on my pillow now I'm a mouse again

Now Now Now 01:55
Hitch a ride on the Delaware give it time, see if I care eat the fruit of a tree that done you right let the rots suck the surface bare NOW NOW NOW NOW I need it now, I need it now now now now now now now now rurururururururururururuff Four stars and a golden gate fickle fingers manipulate guess you think you can keep the rats locked out I see 'em starting to populate NOW NOW NOW NOW

Uninvited 04:44
He calls to invite us, sits down right beside us "All God's children," he'll say "are wheat in the thicket, righteous among wicked, and gathered on harvest day." His apt congregation, from chalkboard invitation "All drifters welcome ashore!" The fruit of my seed has been declared a weed and I am invited no more. Aren't we delighted to be the Uninvited?! Expelled to the Church of the Truth His prison of preaching, the primer he's been teaching he would be uninvited, he should be uninvited, too Aren't we delighted - we, the Uninvited! Love, unconditional, true The righteous, the honest - come lay your sins upon us and you'll be uninvited, too

Her tongue told of scrambled eggs and cigarettes, not her notebook full of I-just-haven’t-yet’s. She greets me in the morning with her Listerine kisses. Her Game Genie daddy grants her endless wishes. Jesus took a shower down Venice Beach, washing off the salt from the waves. Her Daddy’s in the church underneath a flag. You know what they say, “God, Country, Grave.” Skyscrapers cover up the harvest moon. Feeling like a seed cast on stone. A night so cold it was itchin’; it ain’t just the roots that won’t leave her alone. No it’s not the girl, and it’s not the war it ain’t the general, or his orders it’s not the getting lost, or the cost or the fate – it’s the thought you hate. I would take it all back, but it’s no good. I would take it all back, if I could.

This river is a line between us and them This river is a line between us and them This river is a line between us and them God made it to divide, who can argue with Him? He put you on a side with your only friends He put you on a side so that you could make friends He put you on a side and them gon' be your friends But the river will wind, and the river will bend CUT THE STRINGS ON YOUR MARIONETTE and step aside if you ain't gonna bet Jacks are wild, and we ain't in a rush you know that Five of a Kind will always beat a straight flush The Devil is alive and he looks like Hell The Devil is alive and he looks like Hell The Devil is alive and he looks like Hell But you know what they say - oh well, oh well, oh well He put you on a side with your only friends He put you on a side so that you could make friends He put you on a side and them gon' be your friends But the river will wind, and the river will bend CUT THE STRINGS ON YOUR MARIONETTE and step aside if you ain't gonna bet Jacks are wild, and we ain't in a rush you know that Five of a Kind will always beat a straight flush Stop steppin' on my side I got my side you got your side Stay steppin' on your side You got your side I got my side I'm steppin' on tall pines You're steppin' on apple orchards I'm steppin' on tall pines I got my side you got your side now...

She swears it's alright that you're Always on the Go Me, I can see you're tired of letting her down dragging her feelings in tow so you're getting on a bus I know you feel you must; Love is much easier to say than show And you've always had your doubts on taking the easy way out so there you go, to let her know Those stars in the sky, if we weren't here they'd shine We blacken the sky with our incandescent moan to see so everyone gets by adrift in a crowd a billion stars, each on their own so I'm getting on a plane when the ground and sky's the same the sight was much easier to take when I had someone to hold We've always had our doubts on taking the easy way out so once we know... Those stars in the sky, if we weren't here they'd shine Those stars in the sky, if we weren't here they'd shine And they wouldn't miss us, so how important could we be? All things with life must die, but love's more than alive guess you found your way to outlast apathy When all those stars burn out, you'll still be about and traveling through the heavens you will find Like stars in the sky, because you're here I will shine because you're here I will shine

Would you come get me if I met you half way? Oh would you get me if I met you half way? Or leave me hanging without a word to say? I see you moving, where do you go these days? Everyone's moving, nobody MOVES these days. So tired of chasing you around even my puppy knows when to stay. This separation, it's got me locked up tight. Anticipation I fear that you just might, might leave me hanging - don't leave me hangin' on for life.

I climbed out to see on my sycamore tree now I sit alone and sway on a hot, sticky day I'd be excited to say that I feel a breeze comin' my way But despite the heat I'm frozen out on my seat while the branches bend down like a whim As I look at the ground it's so far from me now - but real soon it'll be on my chin! I got my candy apple and my Separation Anxiety I'm gonna drive West 'til I leave all the stress behind me I got my candy apple and my Separation Anxiety I'm gonna drive West 'til there's nobody left who can find me I look back at the trunk and who would've thunk? but you were sittin' there smilin' at me 'cause it was you to begin who got me out on this limb tellin' me of some sweet, sweet fruit well I wouldn't have bet no I never would've guessed when we were holding hands in safety It's a shame I've been duped by the promise of fruit and now I've lost hold of the truth!
