about

"very groovy and nice mixing choices...it's just sooo.. YOU." - ethan

"...both laugh-out-loud and introspective...“I Love the Woods” veers off into a wistful lap steel solo...deftly avoids...pitfalls...the album title!...Recommended." –Razorcake

Track Name: Elvis Thermometer
There it was in the shop window
You were eyeing the Elvis Presley thermometer
And there we were at the kosher country club
All because of nostalgia

And there was a grumpy old man
Who made paintings in less than five minutes
He was on his tour throughout New York State
With his gimmick and his bad jokes

I'm more like the painter than I am like you
Because he and I are both living for ourselves
And it makes me wanna buy you that Elvis Presley thermometer
And tell you that it hasn't gone to waste
Track Name: Freaky Painting
I found you outside on the sidewalk
You were big and you were smellin like smoke
I was alone but I carried you home
And now you're sittin on my floor

Freaky painting, freaky painting
I don't have a spot for you
Freaky painting, freaky painting
I just don't know what to do

I don't know why anybody'd wanna throw you out
Cause you're pretty good lookin to me
Some people said you might've been some ex-boyfriend's
And some cryin girl just had to set you free

Freaky painting, freaky painting
Sittin there on the floor
Freaky painting, freaky painting
I think you're blockin the door
Track Name: This Sign
This sign used to be green
This sign used to be green
From everywhere I've been
I just don't know what it means
This sign used to be green

Well you think that things won't change
But they always rearrange
Nothin ever likes to stay the same
And the older that I get
It's harder to forget
I'll never go back home to better days

This stuff was in the other room
This stuff was in the other room
Now I can't stand to see
That cotton yellow gloom
This stuff was in the other room

Well you think that things won't change
But they always rearrange
Nothin ever likes to stay the same
And the older that I get
It's harder to forget
I'll never go back home to better days

This desk was on the other side
This desk was on the other side
You'd think that I was comatose
Or just curled up and died
This desk was on the other side

This couch had only purple pillows
This couch had only purple pillows
They used to shine so bright
In those little yellow windows
This couch had only purple pillows

This book was lyin on the table
This book was lyin on the table
I just don't understand
Why nothing's ever stable
This book was right here on the table

But you think that things won't change
But they always rearrange
Nothin ever likes to stay the same
And the older that I get
It's harder to forget
You just can't go back home to better days

This sign used to be green
This sign used to be green
I wish I could tell you what it means
This sign used to be green
Track Name: I Love the Woods
I love the woods
They are so solitary
I love the sea
Outside the monastery
I love the monks
They show me how to live
I wanna go to the city

I take a cab
Down to the big brown building
I'm at the lab
I love experimenting
I love the mice
They never get afraid
I wanna talk to God

I'll sail away
Riding on a big dead body
I'll go to sleep
I won't tell anybody
I love the mice
They show me how to live
I wanna go to the city
Track Name: Ghost Town
I'm in a ghost town
Yeah, yeah
Nothin to do but just walk around
I saw a cowboy
He said hello
I am a locksmith
Don't you know?

Two clowns
At the front of the room
They are a circle
Don't you know?
Maybe it rained
Maybe it will snow
I'm in a ghost town
Don't you know?

Two clowns
At the front of the room
They are a circle
Don't you know?
Maybe it rained
Maybe it will snow
I'm in a ghost town
Don't you know?

I'm in a ghost town
Yeah, yeah
Nothin to do but just walk around
I saw a cowboy
He said goodbye
I am a locksmith
It's time to die!
Track Name: President Coolidge
I sat in a bathtub
With a woman of ninety-three
She said do you have a cold
I said Mary
Don't tell me if it rains tomorrow
Tell me if it rains today

Hello my name is Senator Tom
Right next to me is my best friend
His name is Senator Greg
We've come to show you
Our latest discovery

We found a way
We found a way
We found a way
To bring you all back home

I said Mary
That's a mighty fine hat you got on
Where could I find myself
A hat such as that?
She said sorry kid
This hat was a gift from President Coolidge
In 1925

And I said Mary
That can't be true
Cause Calvin Coolidge was president
In 1842

She said you caught me in a lie
This hat was a gift from my father
He was the president to me
