Tommy Dog For me this is a wonderful break up album. It’s not all sullen because these things in life are always emotionally mixed and the album reflects the mood swings all done without clobbering you over the head or overly forcing the subjects to fit specific places in the listeners consciousness

(6/6/12) Faint scent of death coming Coming Angry? Sorry. Stormy Monday Fall fall falling Taking away Losing Lost
(6/12/12) I tried to give up I tried to surrender I tried to move on I tried to remember I tried to forget I tried to get mad I tried getting even I tried to be strong I tried not to care I tried to stop breathing I tried to be silent and I tried speaking But it's not me, it's you I tried doing nothing I tried to run I tried to stop loving tried loving my freedom I tried to embrace I tried to deny I tried to stop thinking I tried to survive But it's not me, it's you
(6/23/12) Creatures, creatures of the water creatures of the forest Creatures of the softly moving air Spirits, spirits of the starlight spirits of the moonlight Spirits walking printless across the shifting sands Lets take angels and dance them on a pin Lets take animals and roast them on a spit Lets take everything and turn it into shit It's the perfect way to say fuck it. Angels angels of the heavens seraphim of vengeance Angels cast down to the underworld Forces forces of mathematics orbits of the planets Orbits of the restless spirits trapped inside the flesh
(6/15/12) I had a plan to drive out to the promised land To wander in the desert sand, to wait until the spacemen came And took me with them far away and save me from the judgement day Cause I don't know what I want or if I want what I've got Contradiction and confusion and addiction are my lot And I understand the questions that you ask when you're sad Dilemmas that don't fit your plan And I'm not sure who you are or if you come from the same star Is it a rocket that you're riding or just lightning in a glass You move so fast and I'm always the last to know where you've been And where you're going I had a thought that I would be an astronaut and fuck up just like Major Tom Or maybe I'll just ride the bomb right down till it hits the ground
(6/14/12) Sometimes you wonder what you're missing on the other side Boys and Girls and new positions that you've never even thought of trying Somewhere where the grass is greener you'll start another life With no one looking over your shoulder dragging behind your ball and chain boulder Sometimes you have to wonder what would happen if you started over Burn a bridge don't walk run left right north south take a train take a plane disappear into the ozone Sometimes you just want to take a lighter and burn it to the ground Take a road you've never taken even if it only goes around and round and round Somewhere it must be better, maybe there, maybe anywhere but here It's not too late to change, it's not to late to run away
Downside 03:27
(6/21/12) I want to know. It's so hard to relinquish control Downside is that I am alone You have hidden away your soul when once it seemed so close Can't protect the sun can't attack the rain Only thing left is feeling...
(6/9/12) If it be now, it's not to come And if it's not to come it will be now The readiness is all When a Sparrow falls If she will go she will be gone And if it comes to an end it will be done
(7/3/12) Fallen Cherub of this be sure we embrace good nevermore And do the ill be our delight henceforth Immortal hate is our love All is not lost Consult how we most offend our enemy; our loss repair And overcome calamity despair And rest if any rest can harbor there Sweet angel fair Which way I fly is hell, myself am hell And in the lowest deep a lower deep Opens wide To which the hell I suffer seems a heaven. Is no other place for pardon left? Repentance: relent. Submission forbidden to me. Never to recant.
Wait 03:32
(7/2/12) My best friends on the phone tonight we're talking about life They don't really like my songs that much but they sure give great advice The razor hasn't touched your face in who knows how many days And you wander like some kind of ghost around that big empty place And there's nothing you can do or say to wish the pain away Stay on the train and the scenery will change Time will pass away just wait The junkie kids have all cleaned up they're mastering kung fu They all think you're a little cracked but man they sure love you They say everything works out for the best and I say yeah for who All I know is that you rack up debts and pay when they are due And there's nothing you can do or say to wish the pain away Stay on the train and the scenery will change And everything that's happening's exactly how it plays Time will pass away just wait Time will pass away just wait
Exhale 02:51
(6/30/12) Borne on an airwave, sprung from a light page I knelt before your stumbling verse Silent and broken but certain, unspoken We faced down our clockwork curse Till swimming under the crashing lightning We gazed down on our misty moving clouds Exhale, exhale your fractured sigh Your endless, confused, torn goodbye Circles and thistles and bright burning pinwheels Blowing on tinder that would not flame Staring down demons until they devoured us Despite what the beautiful optimists always say Morning is ending, evening beginning The constant song of sorrow plays A voice in the choir singing madly and blindly A tiny harlequin slips away And my eyes slowly open and rise to the dome And I realize I'd been singing alone.
Lost Soul 04:53
(7/6/12) Tomorrow tomorrow tomorrow will come With forgetting forgetting forgetting a love As you should, the world devours lovers And time is the answer to all of your prayers and signs Tomorrow tomorrow tomorrow's today You're a shade bit lazy but you wash away the grey But you should, there's really no protection or delay What you had, what you lost, what you threw away... Far away, are you far away from your lost soul? Far away are you miles away from your lost soul? Tomorrow tomorrow tomorrow will come And you look back on nothing your life has become Deliver us from illusion deliver us from the lie Or bestow that gentle falsehood that helps us to survive Far away, are you far away from your lost soul? Far away are you miles away from your lost soul?
