about

Thank you’s must be given to Jon Jetter, Joel Thome, Phil Moffa, Silas Brown, Mike Dvorscak, Jakub Ciupinski, Micah Kohn for many song workshoppings, Robert Triscoli for letting this book be art, Barrett and Diala, Claire and Rachel, and The Mama and The Papa and The Family and The Friends for the love and support always.

I wrote Red Cigar about the Black Lives Matters movement and the oppression of African Americans in America. Please listen to Common's album "Black America Again" and Solange's "A Seat At The Table". I can write in solidarity, but hearing music written about these issues by black artists is so important. Please also read The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander to learn about the roots and current system of this oppression.

I’d like to dedicate Aleppo to Diala, Mohammad, and Hassan, as well as the people of Syria, especially those still trapped in Aleppo.

Track Name: Your Skin On My Sheets
Heart worn in like an old bronze ring
Silver once, now she’s tarnishing
Don’t polish away the fading line
So simple to say you are mine

I hold you long like a stone in my palm
They don’t skip on when the water in calm
Fingers wrapping, wind begins to blow
Peaceful napping in the sleet and snow

I hear your name in the patter of the rain
I see your face out the window of the train
Feel your skin on my sheets
Your sweetness all tangled up in me
Track Name: Save My Soul
It is dark so I take you
The stairwell is empty
Like I am
You were sleeping but my eyes stayed open stayed open lost in space between

You say I’m misunderstood
I don’t know if I am good for you

Save my soul
I was born good I know
I know

It is cold, you were speaking
As my mind glazes over
Hearing space between
And I hear you
But when I am smiling
I am not smiling
I’m not listening

I don’t think you understand
I live by the second hand

Save my soul
I was born good I know
I know

There’s no sound but I’m climbing
The elevator door stays lonesome
Up to the top floor
You were blooming
As my eyes grew distant
As my mind grew frantic as my mind as my mind as my mind

Still you say my soul is good
You’re the one who has misunderstood

Save my soul
I was born good you know
You know
Track Name: Dog Is Barking
Your dog is barking, let it out
Sickle cells and blood on its mouth
Hear the whimper, let it go
No one wants to know the things that you know
When you see her lying on the ground
Why don’t you do the right thing
Put it down

Put her in her kennel, bring her on the train
The hum of the wheels seems to numb her pain
You keep on waiting for her health
But we all know you do it for yourself
She can’t be the one that you’re looking for
Do the right thing, bar the door

Your dog is tired, let her sleep
She was never yours to keep
Well she lived her life and she lived it long
And none of us think that you’ve done her wrong
So when she makes that faithful sound
Why don’t you do the right thing
Put her down
Put her down
Down
Down

Your dog is barking, let it out
Sickle cells and blood on its mouth
If your dog keeps barking just put it down
You’ll feel much better without the bitch around
Track Name: On My Mind
Not sure if I’m awake
Doesn’t matter how it seems
Is Earth just a mistake

Though I rise it’s all too much
A world too heavy to bear
I can’t quite feel your touch

I’ve got a lot on my mind
I have got a lot on my mind

The birds fill up the skies
It’s barren in these skins
Canyons in these eyes

I have got a lot on my mind
I have got a lot on my mind

Sooner or later
They see you, stranger
(What can you give)
When they ask you in
(Nothing to give)
They won’t let you in
Track Name: Red Cigar
I think you’ll be in the city soon
Not right for most, but it’s right for you
Don’t expect to understand
Red cigar in your hand

Who’s gonna mind if it’s right
Who’s gonna mind it’s not right

You’ll get your eyes on those delights
You’ll only see what neon keeps bright
Fresh off the tongue, rolling, “No”
Red cigar of you own

Who’s gonna mind if it’s right
Who’s gonna mind it’s not right

They like to say it’s inside your head
They’ll say it still until the day that you are dead
They’re sorry just to dig another grave
They’re sorry you’re just another special case

Who’s gonna mind if it’s right
Who’s gonna mind it’s not right

I think you’ll be in the city soon
You can take yourself before God takes you
Some are just born the wrong kind
So we all thank god that we’re so colorblind

Who’s gonna mind if it’s right
Who’s gonna mind it’s not right
Track Name: Aleppo
I didn't let you go yesterday
I was losing you in the crimson rain
Now deep in my mind
You're a rose in the dust
But colors fade
And petals turn to rust
To rust

But come now my bride
Can you take my hand
Across the divide between us and our homeland
Away we are carried
But we both know
A marriage bed buried under rubble in Aleppo

Sun falling down again
Bright city lights
Have burned through their kerosine
The days are black as the nights
The nights
You're the last light as it fades to black
Don't look out your window
When the mirror is cracked
Is cracked

But come now my bride
Can you take my hand
Across the divide between us and our homeland
Away we are carried
But we both know
A marriage bed buried under rubble in Aleppo

I won't let you go if we meet in the morning
No I won't let you go
A slow, slow Earth is turning
Turning away

But come now my bride
Can you take my hand
Across the divide between us and our homeland
Away we are carried
But we both know
A marriage bed buried under rubble in Aleppo
Track Name: Winter Nights
Summer, it tasted like honey
Winter, it’s my favorite but it never gets so sweet
And sometimes we turn out the lights
Try to get back to those winter nights

6 pm, side by side in bed
Staying in too late to heal my aching head
And sometimes we turn out the lights
Try to get back to those winter nights

August is too bright, feeling fire
Winter, it’s my baby, it is frozen, so quiet
Drowning in the sound of the flickering next door
Turning off their lights to feel the winter nights
The idea of loving is better in your mind
Frostbite as summer rushes by
Track Name: The Quiet Age
Go you don’t have to go
Today it’s the day
I’ve been living in the fire
I’ve been living like a liar

The sun said, “It’s alright, go back to bed”
The anchorman tried not to drown
But you and I, we never learned to play
now I know that it’s the day

Oh no, this quiet age it moves so slow
Silent night, I tried, but I lost you after all
Never had a single word to say
Now I know it was the day
