Track Name: To Canada!
To Canada! (Stauffer)

Just a little town right there on the beach
And it's winter now in Canada
You can keep the window down
It won't bother me
Just keep grinding on
to Canada
Canada!

Damn near perfect place
almost outta reach
We'll set up home base
In Canada
Canada!

I've got the weight of the world
weighing on me

Forty days that aint nothin
Forty days left to mine
We'll be all right
We all feel

Non-chalant
Drop you in a whole new world of want

Track Name: This is This
THIS IS THIS (Stauffer)

Reading outta some old, cold book wont heal these scars,
Donny
Baring my soul don't put gas in my car,
Donny

What's the worst that could happen instead of doing nothing again?
I'm out of my head, here in bed, the sky so blue

This is not going away - this is this
Might as well put away that wish
And it's not up to luck, it's not to be missed.
There's no get-out-of-jail card for something like this
I'll get up, up, up, up and at my wildest dreams of you
Up and in my shoes

What's the worst that could happen instead of doing nothing again?
I'm out of my head, still in bed, the sky so blue

Reading outta some old, cold book wont heal these scars,
Donny
Baring my soul don't put gas in my car,
Donny

You can ferret out your enemies
I'll be swimming in a sea of cheese
Go and give em all the ninth degree
I'll be swimming in a sea of cheese

This is this

Track Name: wee
WEE (Chabolla Stauffer/Stauffer)

Pale wisps in her furrowed brows
A trotting canine pressing its paws in the moss on the mud
She live in her eyes, swells in her head
Heat
A threat, only me, alone
On the wet grounds of her home

Trouble troudabour lacking espirit de corps
not exactly time well spent
It was at a convenience store, kinda your killing floor
We laughed it up, came and went

Cause you know me, you know my history
You know all about the weed and that's everything you need
We shall see what today wants to be
It may offer up a wee little rain in my name

An uninvited guest to such refined largess
Hit a little too close to home
And you, always at your best
Cough syrup and a tailored vest
And I'm gonna leave the rest alone

You know me, you know my history
You know all about the weed and that's everything you need
We shall see what today wants to be
It may offer up a wee little rain in my name

In the moss on the mud

Brenna Chabolla Stauffer: narrative
Tom Stauffer: vocals, instruments
Track Name: Pipe Dream
PIPE DREAM (Stauffer)

how this world retains its spin
how we manage is beyond me once again
just because now and then
a frozen panic in the pantry
how we manage is beyond me

it took all this time all this time
for time to tell
what the neighbors knew full well
and in my mind it finally rang a bell
better late than never

some of us are an easy sell
we act on impulse pray tell
and some of aren’t making out so well
and we don’t have forever

and i’m out in the yard
watching the rain fall on my shoe
been pretty hard not to think about you
gotta focus on things i can actually do
instead of a dream that couldn’t come true
instead of a pipe dream

in october this gets real
in october you can ask me how I feel

tell it to the moon
tell it to another night
you’ll finally get it right

just give me someone
can you give me someone
someone i can trust?
and maybe find me something
a little something
from when we were us

Track Name: Feet of Clay
FEET OF CLAY (Stauffer)

Tie it on ole friend of mine
Tie it on you won't get no sign
from me (Something in your eyes is not okay)

We'll move along, get this certified
We'll move on, let me decide
for me (Nothing in this world is truly safe)

Here's a pollyanna break and I pray the lord my soul to take

Maybe we could, maybe we should
maybe not

Half off at the outlet mall at the end of it all
Niceties to cushion your fall at the end of it all
Gonna be down to a crawl at the end of it all
Don't mean you can't stand tall at the end of it all

I see a bottle in hand through the window
It's on early today
I see a bottled in hand arms all akimbo
on feet of clay
You're gonna want to stay out of the way, my friend
You're gonna want to stay out of the way

She's got no humble pie since she found that pew
But she's got a new alibi and she wants want too
from you

I kinda like what he said

Danae Chabolla Stauffer: vocals
Track Name: August
AUGUST (Stauffer)

How strong your will denied your fate
as it stole your speech, your reach, your gate
Your shrunken face your swollen feet
Your eyes still burning holes in me
"To each their own," your thralls beseeched
Your last phizzog defied the creed

-
Tom Stauffer: vocals, piano
Track Name: Monotone
MONOTONE (Stauffer)

Bubbles up when I'm driving alone
and I let it roll just to spur me on
You took away the all-for-one
Sacaton

Where to eat, how to charge the phone
Save receipts, leave the TV alone
Ukulele monotone
on my own

Arthur said:
"Start where you are,
use what you have,
do what you can"

Got the rain off and on
falling on sticks and stones
Crazy 8s with Keek and Danae on our own phones
San Simon

Ukulele monotone
on my own

Tom Stauffer: vocal, guitar, uke
Track Name: Speech and Plow
Phnom Penh, 1975


We seek the child, we speak, we rise
Defeat, defile the weak, the wise

Release the hounds in speech and plow
Let the beasts surround the least-sacred cow
We'll stoke the fire while they take her down

Tom Stauffer: vocals, guitar
Track Name: Beverly's House
BEVERLY'S HOUSE (Stauffer)

On the way to Beverly's house I won't stray or nothin
On the way to Beverly's house I won't stop

Cat on a hot, tin roof, I was
stirring the pot
Kind of a wild excuse, but why not?

But on the way to Beverly's house I won't stray or nothin
On the way to Beverly's house I won't stop

And then to get back home from there is so easy
So easy

Tom Stauffer: vocals, instruments
Track Name: 19
19 (Chabolla Stauffer/Stauffer)

Claws scratch, shave, saw at the wooden beams
flakes fall on my sleeping face
run, run, run down that hall
find them all
laugh, laugh
his jaw unhinged to smile crooked

-
Tom Stauffer: vocals, guitar, uke
