Stumbling [inaudible mumbles] yourself a lie Hope to god it's true when you die Fool yourself convinced it's just a lie Hope to god it's true when you die If there's no bottom to your eyes They hold more Walk the streets with rocks in your shoes Who's to win when we can only lose Prove yourself with rocks in your shoes Who's to win when we can only lose If there's no bottom to your eyes They hold more Hope to god it's true when you die Hope to god If there's no bottom to your eyes They hold more

It was a lovely day at a little past three When Gerald A. Crawford was staring at me I him in my pocket and I took him home And then I knew I would never be alone Gerald A. Crawford you are a mystery Gerald A. Crawford what's in store for me Gerald A. Crawford are you my friend Gerald A. Crawford beginning or end I showed my mother this new fate-sealer She said "he could be a killer or a drug dealer" I said "but hey mom he's got a cordless phone And then I knew I would never be alone Gerald A. Crawford...

A scream in the park Children on swings I have a friend Who says he has wings And he says he will leave this town And he says nothing brings him down A slap on the face The pain always stings I have a friend Who says he has wings And he says nothing brings him down And he says he will leave this town I set you free, fly away Just leave me be, fly away Why can't you see, fly away You can't hurt me, fly away

Sunday afternoon and it's in my head That I wouldn't really be that much better dead There's some things you can't see with your eyes I said as I saw you smiling through your lies Oh, I really think it's time to go I'm leaving I hope that you enjoyed the show Goodbye You said to me that it wasn't fair But you're only out to use me so how can I care There's some things you can't see with your eyes I said as I saw you smiling through your lies Oh, I really think it's time to go... Knee deep in guilt, so to make amends It's the oldest line in the book: I hope we can still be friends HA! There's some things you can't see with your eyes I said as I saw you smiling through your lies Oh, I really think it's time to go...

I'll tell you what you want to hear If you are far or to keep you near I dislike people who dislike me So I'll be whatever you want me to be Cause I'm a people pleaser A leech feeding off your mind I hope I pleased you Cause I'd die to be your kind You can rest assured for a month or two [inaudible mumbles] someone better than you Love means nothing in a world gone cold So I'm pleasing people until I'm old Cause I'm a people pleaser... I am not impressed I am not impressed Tim is not impressed Are you guys impressed

You're a little doll sitting on the shelf You fall to the ground and cry for help There's nothing I can do for you Cause I am just a little doll too The people here are very tall But they don't catch us when we fall Someone comes in through the door They see us broken on the floor Leave something there for me Your stuffing's gone, my body broke The people here just sit and smoke It's to the dump with you, my friend Is this an all too fitting end

Have you ever seen a shooting star Wish for luck before it dies Will you find out who you are Before you close your tired eyes I run to meet you But I will never know your name

Cracked open and left to die The ground is dirty but you can't get up I think you have a problem Horses, men, and kings can't figure you out I think you have a problem Cracked open and left to die The ground's still dirty but you can't get up I think you have a problem Horses, and kings can't figure you out You sure have a problem Cracked open and left to die

I sat down beside you And I tried to talk But you just sat there Looking like a statue I asked you a question And I looked in your eyes (they were pretty) But you just sat there Looking like a statue One of these days Sit down beside me And try to talk And I'll just sit here Looking like a statue One of these days

Marc, there's a song on your album. It's the shortest song in there, but it gives me such strength. The words came at me like cryptic messages, a few days ago when I really needed help to go on. I needed a sign that all we know is true, for at times we all wonder if we're just not totally made. The song's "Life's a Gas". I had just thrown a whole group of people out of my life. They hadn't learned, and they were draining me. I hated to get rid of them, but I knew I had to, and it would be all right but I was very down. I was very down. One hour later I put on your record and heard, "It doesn't really matter at all, no it doesn't really matter at all, life's a gas," ...and I felt my strength returning. Was I right? Marc's eyes lit up and the magic poured through with its blinding brilliance. "But of course! That's what the whole song's about! It doesn't matter at all. You must not let things matter. Things happen for a reason, and we can make them happen. We can make them happen." "There is nothing about my career that is an accident." We looked at each other and the understanding was total. The understanding was total. "It doesn't really matter at all, no it doesn't really matter at all, life's a gas..."

about

Early Recordings: 1991-93. The drawing was one of many I did in a history class when I was hopped up on pain meds for my wisdom teeth. The design was going to be for the album that I never got around to making until Misk was formed. I never throw anything away.
