about

The concept for this album began in the summer of 2002. Recording started soon after, but then became sporadic, and eventually the album was scrapped. This album uses only new recordings and was recorded over the course of four days in March 2014, mostly using songs that were written in 2002 for the planned album, but also older songs and some new ones. Thanks for listening.

Track Name: Nevada Landing
It's been a long, long drive
but we're here
We found a dream inside of the gears
We kicked some rocks around
found a mirror
Now we're on the ground
and need a beer

We're mining this hill
and building this mill
We're writing our will
in case it falls

Now the mining cars move twice a day
and the golden bars by guarded stage
Let the miners camp along the way
Since we landed here and made a claim

We're mining this hill
and building this mill
We're writing our will
in case it falls
It was meant to be
our discovery
From sea to golden sea
It never ends
Track Name: Honest Engine
You got the key ignition
I've got the rattled tones
I'm an honest engine
hear me roar
I've got the massive tires
You got an ass of steel
You won't get fired
I can't feel

Plowin down all the hills and knolls
Grade it flat now it feels like home

The land goes on forever
Your job is safe with me
Nature begs for an acre
Go extinct
Track Name: Western Union
Washington is really mad
California's all been had
Oregon is smoking pot
Arizona's way too hot

I've been through the west
Time to pave the rest

Idaho is such a drag
All the guns in Utah sag
In Nevada, lost my cash
Colorado's smoking hash

I've been through the west
Time to pave the rest

Miss Montana much, I weep
In Nebraska, fell asleep
In New Mexico, I lag
All Wyoming's dressed in drag

I've been through the west
Time to pave the rest
Track Name: Flat Earth Society
I used to live on a grassy hill
Orange trees outside window sill
Now I stare at a prefab tract
Orange blossom days not coming back
Life was so nice before you moved in
Now it looks like it time I gave in
You wouldn't care if I hit the road
You wouldn't care if I'm put on hold

Preaching liquor store Christianity
I can't stand your flat earth society
Track Name: Silver Queen
She laughs
flat on her back
intact and her radiance good
6-pack's not coming back
in fact I think that they all should

Silver queen
it's not like in dreams
but things are still misunderstood
Fantasy, like your liberty
remains so far from Hollywood

Transfixed
the size of your tits
I sit alone thinking of you
Bad trips
reality clicks
No chicks have been as pretty as you

Silver queen
it's not like in dreams
but things are still misunderstood
Fantasy, like your liberty
remains so far from Hollywood

The desert lies beyond
with dust instead of fog
The engine's turning on
2 hours, we'll be gone
Track Name: Aerial
Going up the mountainside
Nice day for a trammin' ride
Clouds look like cottonball ghosts
Superclear views to Mexico
Above the clouds I walk up here
With my friends there are no tears
Trouble down below the clouds
I don't care I'm up here now
Aerial examiner
Stereo pentameter
The world is here
Track Name: Corporate Nevada
They want your money
Ain't it funny
They care less about you
than themselves
See the sunset in the desert in your rear view mirror
See the colors, there are others who would like to be here
You are lucky
Enjoy the yucky
Such a privilege you will miss
In the future
Enjoy the present
That's all you can, I insist
See the sunset in the desert in your rear view mirror
See the colors, there are others who would like to be here
Track Name: B.K.K.
Curse the violent screams
Curse the vitamin heals
Curse the landfill of death
Curse the dragon's firebreath
Curve the straightest road stretch
Curse the greatest ball catch
Kill the sadness inside
Make the goodness all rise

It's alright
Just sit tight
Beautiful sight
All tonight
Track Name: Reasons to Live
Far away, the surfers wait
for upcoming massive waves
I'll join them on Saturday
I work the days in Riverside
Too tired to go out at night
Get to bed and shut the light
As I drift off into sleep
I forget my troubled week
and my mind begins to breathe
I dream about the golden sand
Perfect waves and little tanned
surfer girls that hold my hand
Every day I dream about
PCH and In-n-Out
California girls, no doubt
Santa Barbara, Mission Bay
Mendocino, Monterey
Crescent City, Onofre
Sailing out of Inverness
Down the channel Tomales
was the best, but could you guess?
All these things I have to praise
Kept my will to live aflame
Thanks to California days
Thanks to everyone you see
Thanks to all my friends away
Never to be seen again
