about

I stopped in the Third Man Records store and recorded this when I was in Nashville. They refurbished this booth from the 40s where you put tokens in and it cuts a 7" in real time as you record! It's crazy to think that this is how they did it in the early days…

Track Name: Trolley Car (Record Booth)
When everything you are
lives to drive a trolley car
the sidewalk softens underneath your feet

and I’m thinking about my footsteps on the street.

When the fire you collect
doesn’t leave you circumspect
but blazing trails to candy-coated stars,

you smile and ride the rails;
soapbox ventures, shoebox tales
populate your conversations, your concerns, where you are

and I think about you while I’m driving driving in my car

and I’m shaken in my shirt
future grabs me by the shoulders
in his eyes, his soul he smolders
big bad boulders bring the hurt

I am shaking in my shoes
future grabs me by the wrist
drags me off into the mist
and then insists I toss my blues

yeah, he’s coming after you.

When everything you’re not
shows you everything it's got
a spring storm rages underneath your skin

Hail to the clouds
raindrops riot on on the windshield
each impact lets a voice into the wind;

distain, dissent, and disarray
do not disarm the dissolution
deeply dissolved into my blood

and I’m thinking about everyone I love

and I’m shaken in my shirt
future grabs me by the shoulders
in his eyes, his soul he smolders
big bad boulders bring the hurt

I am shaking in my shoes
future grabs me by the wrist
drags me off into the mist
and insists I toss my blues

He’s coming after you.
