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

Save My Soul 03:27
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

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
4.
On My Mind 03:27
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

Red Cigar 04:23
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

Aleppo 04:30
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

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

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

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.
