mixed by Brian Beattie at the Old Wonder Chamber, Austin, Texas.

lyrics

it's good to stop and rest for a while
but then move along, move along
I know what's waiting in these amber-colored octaves
a distillation of all my best defenses
a distillation of all my best defenses

i'm worthy as a birdie in the bush with two hands
worth less than a cat with no master
worthy as a birdie in the bush with two hands
two hands
you've got a clear shot at my weary eye

I know what's waiting in these amber-colored octaves
it's what I sink with my battleship
it's what's kept in my graveyard
a thousand bodies buried and no marker
a thousand bodies buried and no marker
