1st single off new CD "Forward-Looking Statements"

lyrics

I’ve done my best to do away with words
To rid myself of all the words I’ve heard
Like a book I once read for school
And will never read again
That time is at an end
And if I ever hoped to crack that spine
Like you once cracked mine
Then the meaning won’t be lost on me again
Another book I’ll never lend

I’ll tear out a page and start anew
And act as though this chapter with you
Stopped but not quite at the end
I’ll just say we’re through
And I’ve toiled enough in this story with you
Stop reading, stop trying to pretend

Now I’ve reread the same lines
Way more than one time
And though dog-eared like every page I bend
I’ve lost my place again
You wrote the book on writing the book
And though I still hope to take a look
No rewrite will ever change the end
So I’ll start that book again

All stories stop, not all stories end
Most just follow a well-worn trend
And here’s another one to tell you
Suffice to say
This is one I wrote my own way
Only now I’m going to read it all the way through

I`ve done my best to do away with words
I`ve done my best to do away with words
I`ve done my best to do away with words
I`ve done my best to do away with words

Another book I`ll never lend
Another book I`ll never lend
