about

I had a dream once that I was a cowboy. This is odd, because cowboys normally take up .0008% of my waking thoughts (this has been carefully measured). I rode a horse through a barren facade of a western town, at first populated with movie extras, gradually becoming less and less populated as I moved on. I eventually found myself in a desert, the horse stopping, a voice in my head saying, "Well, it looks like you got what you wanted."

This song practically wrote itself after I woke up.

lyrics

one more mile out of town
one less sorrow left to drown
one more person that I never thanked
one more way to walk the plank

so let the sun bleach this memory
and the vultures pick it dry
there'll be nothing left to bring a tear to my eye
is there a part of my life that you haven't haunted?

not a care on my mind
not another glance behind
not a chain to drag me down
not another soul around

so let the sun bleach this memory
and the vultures pick it dry
there'll be nothing left to bring a tear to my eye
there's no part of my life that you haven't haunted

I hope you're happy
'cause it looks like you got what you wanted

it's just another sleepless night
another gnawing appetite
one more frozen sun to set
one more day to forget

Hi. I’m Andrew. I play keyboards. I also sing. Occasionally, I do both together. What does that sound like?

Imagine Ben Folds, Joe Jackson and the members of Death Cab for Cutie meeting at a party and forming a supergroup. Divide that by 7. If Ben's train leaves the station at 3:30, how much fuel will it have burned by the time it’s passed Joe’s house? Wait, what were we talking about again?
