The Trouble
'Doppelganger's Lullaby'
Copyright 2015
Marc Jeffares

There's no need to discuss
No need to make a fuss about the things we lost in the fire.
Like the iron will can rust
So can all the trust that we slaved so hard to acquire.
And I don't recognize the eyes
The workingman's disguise that shines from the mirror on the wall.

I'm sick of defending you
Endlessly mending you
Keeping oneself in line should not be this hard
It's gettin' old.

So please, help me do what we must
The heart and mind can adjust to anything that life requires.
Like the leaves that fall down from the trees
A change of season's not a disease, and we are not on a pyre.
And I, I'm not your alibi.
There's no way I can hide all your stumbles and your falls.

I can't take this any longer
All this manufactured pain.
Seems like even the stars are too close to hide your shame.

So, I sing a Doppelganger's Lullaby.
Sit and listen to me try to find your mind some sweet release.
Too long, have you wound the windin' wheel
Just to lose your charm and appeal.
It's time to rest in peace.

Behind the redwood curtain of the Pacific Northwest, the band writes and records in a converted Victorian era carriage house, communing with familiar ghosts of Americana.
