Track Name: Eclipse (LA_live)
Stay don’t go
grace is a lover undressing the soul
I’ll wait here for her tomorrow
where sunlight hides behind the moon
I long to confess with her hands to my chest
all my sorrows fall into you

God you feel like an eclipse
where I get so in-ar-tic-u-late
and the words just cling to my lips.
Does that make two of us?

Faith into hope
love lies down between them both
And I’ll wait here for her tomorrow...
I long to confess with your mouth to my lips
my transgressions fall into you.

Track Name: Emily Dickinson (LA_live)
This is my letter to the world
that left no forwarding address
all the secrets of a girl
whose tongue would not confess
save for the power of the pen
Emily Dickinson
took the boat for england
lost her husband. took a child.
thick lipped. yet delicate. she
sailed away for new york

Brownstone apartment. fire escape.
a view of harlem from the stairs.
The sting of wind against the skin
the call of vendors in the air
and all the downcast and downtrodden (who gather there)

The white horse tavern took her in
poured her absinthe and a shot of gin
(lucky worked the bar on mondays, he said hello).
She met a man who made her smile
he made her laugh. it drove him wild.
and when he turned to pay the tab
he lost her to a taxi cab

(E. D.) took the bus from new york
bound her memoirs of the sea
thick lipped. yet delicate. she
drove to california

Track Name: Blue (LA_live)
Blue
you make me smile
when your mood
lies down
here for awhile
could you afford a major chord
to make us all smile?

Moon
shine down
let your blue light hue
touch the ground
do you mind keeping time
here with my sound?

Music and lyrics p&© Robert Deeble
Track Name: Peter and the Lion (LA_live)
Warm is your breath. mysterious
all my faith and fear beneath your silent shroud
you draw me near ... like a child

Voice undistinguished between — joy and sorrow
the warmth of love. you call my name
in the strongholds of peace
break me to tears before the kindest maker

Music and lyrics p&© Robert Deeble
Track Name: Murder Ballad (LA_live)
In the evening she kisses the earth
as she kneels down to pray
and her sorrows are all that are pure
as silence becomes language

He is a man bent on his rage
with the passion that burns him
too close to the skin
a flame that ignites to a brilliant mistake
and his conscience is all that is left
there without stain

I am Alyosha in a room full of souls
give me your sorrow i’ll give you my hope
faith, love, longing and joy
and i'll be your angel with with the face of a boy

The sins of the father run blood red with wine
"Grushenka my darling" the old man still cries
Brother you murdered your soul with your mind
dissect all the parts to the whole
where the whole leaves you blind

And I am Alyosha in a room full of souls
give me your sorrow i will give you my joy
there is not one that heaven can't hold
and i'll be your angel in earth colored clothes

Who by fate or fire's dim light
took from Karamazov
the end of his life?

There by the rope
hangs the end of his curse
... * see note

Artist note: my only regret to this live recording is forgetting the very last line of this song...
"the son of a sensualist by idiot's birth."
