    If you prefer to have the physical media to hold, fondle, and caress, I don't blame you! But, thing is, I am not doing a run of CDs. At all. Luckily for you, I am willing to burn and ship a CD-R to you if that's what you want.
    I understand you.
    I love you.
    I AM you!
    Just asking that you cover my costs (materials and shipping), but no more. Because, as always, I just want you to have the music (and, now a disc)!
    I might throw on a bonus track or something, if I think to.

about

This one took about 2 years of on-and-off sessions to finally get done.
Todd started with an idea of a really strange vocal treatment that is too involved to get into here, that just didn't work out. Let's just say that it involved multiple vocalists and it was too tough.
So we started over again, from scratch, and I think that we nailed it.
Plus: NINE tracks of guitar harmonies!

lyrics

When we pushed
Out of winter
We went right through the summer
And straight into the fall
Then we fell
And kept on falling
The world was a blur
As we tried to grasp it all

But we couldn’t find the handle
And it all just sort of slipped away
We were flailing in the dark
And smashed whatever got in our way

The more that we touched
The more we smashed to dust
But we do what we must

AND WE’RE SPINNING
WE’RE SPINNING
WE’RE SPINNING BUT WE’RE STANDING STILL

We smashed
Through our changes
Until we came upon a time
When there was nothing left to change
And we broke
All our mirrors
But the same old faces
Looked right back our way

But we couldn’t find a quiet spot
To get another start
Every new beginning
Very quickly fell apart

And the more that we touched
The more we smashed to dust
But we do what we must

AND WE’RE SPINNING
WE’RE SPINNING
WE’RE SPINNING BUT WE’RE STANDING STILL

The more that we touched
The more we smashed to dust
But we do what we must

AND WE’RE SPINNING
WE’RE SPINNING
WE’RE SPINNING BUT WE’RE STANDING STILL
