about

The last song from the album "Holiday Band"

lyrics

I listen to the drone
the rain ticks out a tone
a preemptive breath sustained through what we've known
it's some way to comprehend
something on which to depend
a discipline worth mentioning again

separate intent and acting on
you can't jump ship till the ship is gone
need someone to get you on your way
you waited long enough to make the call
but the feeling of suspense isn't natural
without someone to get you on your way

somewhere a clause protects us from our flaws
it's an amazing, self-preserving safeguard
but i won't neglect the curse for our troubles may disperse
they're threatening to envelop this whole town

we step away, let the world do what it may
appreciate the subtlety
of direction without cause, exertion without pause
sleep without a sound, without a dream

separate intent and acting on
you can't jump ship till the ship is gone
need someone to get you on your way
you waited long enough to make the call
but the feeling of suspense isn't natural
without someone to get you on your way

so let's be honest come and see me
a lesson i've learned is "don't wait"
if afterwards it seems it just wasn't meant to be
at least we weren't stuck standing in the rain
