about

Kenny Ditomaso, one of the band members of Paper House, produced this acoustic demo on the third of April, 2013.

Kenny was hired to record the TWU orchestra on the fifth.

The recording of this song was a pleasant evening session to help Kenny orient himself with the high-end recording gear he had acquired from TWU. Everything was done in first-takes.

lyrics

Craned my neck and looked up towards a sky peppering rain
I stood still as my breath was riddled with sighs
What's the cost of a name?

The eggs are beat
And the shells are cracked and lifeless
Call the names and tell them where you are

Stuck waiting tables
You're a killer and by God you know it
But sometimes we all feel abhorrent
Born out of nothing

Face down wallowing in your dismay
There was a hole blowing out a gale that's never kind to fragile souls

The seeds are spread
But they wont yield an orchard
Maybe someday I will listen
In the meantime I need a can to piss in
The eggs are beat and the shells are cracked and lifeless
Call the names and tell them where you are

Hope's thin arms have carried me
I am nothing but a cut from a somber lapse in key
Call the names and tell them where you are

I do not
I do not

I don't think that time is kind to anyone who thinks they're worth a penny
Born into something
I'll be howling at the moon forever
The sun's held down with icy tethers
Smiling as I count the blessings
Tell me have you seen the ending?

Someday soon I'll see that cross and put it up upon my shoulders
Someday soon I'll see that cross and put it up upon my shoulders
