about

Glass Guitar was recorded over four days in February 2016. Ned Evett invented the glass-necked fretless guitars used on the album; unlike a traditional slide guitar, his fretless guitars produce both the rhythm sounds along with complex lead -lines. The use of glass for the fretless fingerboards produces a distinctive, shimmering tone.

Track Name: Hard Rock Denio
Hard Rock Denio
The mine is shutting down
Say When Casino
Jobs can still be found

Ride your motorcycle
Pawn your gun and ring
Get out while you can
They're shutting down everything
Hard Rock Denio
Good times on the way
Good times here to stay

Hard Rock Denio
Lead and mercury
Say When Casino
Ride along with me

Ride your motorcycle
Pawn your gun and ring
Get out while you can
They're shutting down everything
Hard Rock Denio
Good times on the way
Good times here to stay
Track Name: Waiting On The Truth
Well I built me a bomb or two in my day
I cut the wrong wire I made the wrong play
Staring at the fuse getting near the end
Waiting on the truth to cut loose again

I've traded in the truth for less its worth
Given all the riddles that there are on earth
I have taken on faith when the proof is thin
Waiting on the truth to cut loose again

And there's a fire in the engine room up in flames
Thinking I was never gonna see you again
Spinning in the middle every now and then
Waiting on the truth to cut loose again

Just a little chain
Just a little chain
Just a little chain I can break

I climbed up the mountain for the evidence
Butt full of splinters sitting on the fence
Waited on my neighbors for it all to mend
Waiting on the truth to cut loose again

And there's a fire in the engine room up in flames
Thinking I was never gonna see you again
Spinning in the middle every now and then
Waiting on the truth to cut loose again

Well I dug me a hole or two in my day
I thought I struck gold with the shovel's blade
I didn't see the tiger coming in
I was waiting on the truth to cut loose again

And there's a fire in the engine room up in flames
Thinking I was never gonna see you again
Spinning in the middle every now and then
Waiting on the truth to cut loose again
Track Name: Greatest Generation
Baby Eileen grew up next to me
Up on Sunrise Rim in the 70s
She was the cutest little baby that the world's ever seen
The greatest generation saved the world for little baby Eileen

Mean Mr. Vogel with his sniper's hand
Poppin off the Nazis as a younger man
He had a look in his eye
One for every demon he'd seen
The greatest generation saved the world for little baby Eileen

Mr. Blackburn got a message from Japan
On the Arizona as a younger man
They ripped a steel wall open
Like a can of sardines
The greatest generation saved the world for little baby Eileen

Paul Jewell played the trumpet best he could
Fighting in Korea for the neighborhood
He raised kids in the boom
Who never looked back where they'd been
The greatest generation saved the world for little baby Eileen

Donald Magnuson could well explain
Everything about a Phantom F4 plane
He kept them up in the air
Dropping bombs on people unseen
The greatest generation saved the world for little baby Eileen

Big Gary Lackey was the last to plan
Fighting for his country in Afghanistan
The foe a former friend once known as the Mujaheddin
The greatest generation saved the world for little baby Eileen
Track Name: Robot's Daughter
I am the robot's daughter
One Million feet below
Where my engines toil
Plow the soil
For a liquid prized like gold

I never knew my mother
Father flesh and bone
But heat and pressure made
More than they could take
And I was left down here alone

They use my fruit for weapons
For wars upon their kin
But I dug so deep
They can't hear me weep
As another war begins

Steam o Steam
Come to rescue me
Dream, I will dream that you release me

Once there were the others
I counted them as friends
But my diamond beak made them obsolete
They were melted down again

fuel for all my troubles
Feeding from above
Down a handsome line
Right on time
It will never be enough

Steam o Steam
Come to rescue me
Dream, I will dream that you release me

I am the robot's daughter
One million feet below
Today I held my breath
Though it meant my death
Now their war machine has no fuel to eat
Tell the handsome line vengeance will be mine
With my diggin done
I have finally won
Track Name: Crying For You
Let me tell you about the hypocrites who ruined my good name
I see them standing in the same old pit they dug me yesterday
Holier than thou, where are you now?
Now that your time is due

I miss the real me
I miss the real me
Crying for you

Let me tell you about the innocence they stripped away from me
They kept pushing down to the bone turned their backs on me
Holier than thou, where are you now?
Now that your time is due

I miss the real me
I miss the real me
Crying for you

Let me sing to you a song I wrote about I song I wrote about you
Somewhere in the final verse I let your name slip through

Holier than thou, I'm changing it now
Courteous as I could do

I miss the real me
I miss the real me
Crying for you
Track Name: Firefly
It is was it is till it isn't anymore
Tennessee wind in the wintertime
Tossed across your door
I'm a little bit brighter today
Fire in the bottle and I can't keep you away
I want to be trapped inside
Hypnotized
Dream of our escape
And beating our wings in time

What a beautiful yesterday
You and I
You flying right next to me
My firefly
There's a hole in the atmosphere
Where you once flew by
What a beautiful yesterday
My firefly

It was what it was then it wasn't anymore
These are the rules for the ruined
They break into the open
Slide across the floor
The bottle breaks
You and I were free
For me to choose you
And you to chose me

What a beautiful yesterday
You and I
You flying right next to me
My firefly
There's a hole in the atmosphere
Where you once flew by
What a beautiful yesterday
My firefly

Listen you can hear the sound
Of the raindrops falling down again
Thought that we were side by side
I turn to see you floating off in the wind
I can't be hanging on again

What a beautiful yesterday
You and I
You flying right next to me
My firefly
There's a hole in the atmosphere
Where you once flew by
What a beautiful yesterday
My firefly
Track Name: Never Gonna Give You Up
I'm never gonna give you up
Never gonna give you up
Never ever ever gonna ever gonna give you up
I'm never ever ever ever ever gonna give you up

I'm never gonna let you go
Never gonna let you go
I'm never ever ever ever ever gonna let you go
I'm never ever ever ever ever gonna let you go

Deep within my soul
You have seized control
Only one thing that you need to know
I'm never ever ever ever ever gonna ever gonna ever gonna let you go

You are porcelain skin
Long and lean within
You need space and you need room to spin
I'm never ever ever gonna let you rein you in

I'm never gonna piss you off
Never gonna piss you off
Piss you off more than twice a day
I'm never ever ever gonna let you get away.

Deep within my soul
You have seized control
Only one thing that you need to know
I'm never ever ever ever ever gonna ever gonna ever gonna let you go
Track Name: Abigail in the Morning
Abigail in the morning
She's up before the dawn
Times a wastin'
She got the coffee on
She got beautiful eyes
Darker than the beans
Abigail in the morning
She been a friend to me

Abigail in the morning
She's greeting the day
She hears the bells come a ringing
Half the world away
She got beautiful eyes
Skin like Irish Cream
Abigail in the morning
She been a friend to me

Abigail in the morning
She's greeting the day
She hears the bells come a ringing
Half the world away
I spend a little too much time
Thinking about her and me
Abigail in the morning
She been a friend to me
Track Name: Be a Good Breaker Upper
Be a good breaker upper in your town
Be a good breaker upper in your town
When you take another lover be careful what you cover
Be a good breaker upper in your town

Be a good breaker upper in your town
Don't traffic in the rumors floating round
Don't go sifting through thier lies
Poking holes in alibis
Be a good breaker upper in your town

Let em go let em go
Wish your lover well
When there's less of them to see
They'll be less for you to tell

Be a good breaker upper in your town
Be a good breaker upper in your town
When you take another lover be careful what you cover
Be a good breaker upper in your town

Let em go let em go
Sound the parting bell
When there's less of them to see
You can have your fun as well

Be a good breaker upper in your town
Be a good breaker upper in your town
When you take another lover be careful what you cover
Be a good breaker upper in your town
Track Name: When I Give Up On You
All your darkness
Shining through
How the spotlight follows you
Melancholy calling out your name
Did I drown your spirit with my flame

Yeah my love was certain
Yeah my love was true
You will see behind
See behind my curtain
When I give up on
When I give up on you

All your darkness comes shining through
How the spotlight follows you
Your sad story made the world so sad and lonely
So sad and lonely listening to you

Yeah my love was certain
Yeah my love was true
You will see behind
See behind my curtain
When I give up on
When I give up on you

All your darkness comes shining through
How the blackness follows you
Tell your story in all it's vainest glory
A secret room is where I'm going to

Yeah my love was certain
Yeah my love was true
You will see behind
See behind my curtain
When I give up on
When I give up on you
Track Name: Right This Time Around
Time..
Time is just a frame of mind
I've been living here a long long time
And it's time to go
Trees..
People in the canopy
Hiding there among the leaves
Staring at the ground below

But you came right on time
Starting on an epic climb
Can't decide if I'm going up or down

Lows..
Seeing where the sidewalk goes
Falling over all my toes
In real time
I know the highs
Just a shadow in disguise
Taking all my alibis
To put you asleep tonight

But you came right on time
Starting on an epic climb
Can't decide if I'm going up or down

And I know your a part of me
On account of the economy
Helped me put my feet back on the ground
You were right this time around

But you came right on time
Starting on an epic climb
Can't decide if I'm going up or down

Had myself a dream
Tangled in a ball of string
Hiding underneath the wings
Of a black-winged bird
She flies
Taking me across the sky
Guess I need to wonder why
That you never heard

But you came right on time
Starting on an epic climb
Can't decide if I'm going up or down

And I know your a part of me
On account of the economy
Helped me put my feet back on the ground
You were right this time around
Track Name: Golden Gate
Golden Gate
Golden Gate

I bought you at a music store
Down on Ocean Beach
Forty dollar asking price
Right within my reach
I worked at doing nothing
To take you for my own
Couldn't wait to finally get you home

Golden Gate
Golden Gate

I took you down to Robbie's house and put you on the deck
Asked about a piece of glass to put upon your neck
He cut you up with style and grace and quickly made the switch
Funny how the missing isn't missed

Golden Gate
Golden Gate

I strung you up with D'addario 80/20 strings
Put a Fishman pickup in ya just to hear you sing
Put you on my lap deep into the night
Played you til my fingers found the light

Golden Gate
Golden Gate

You may have been neglected every now and then
Left you in my storage space for months and years on end
Everything was changed when I reset your neck
Baby baby how could I forget

Golden Gate
Golden Gate
