'Time's the Rearranger'

Marc Jeffares

My tongue is made of cobwebs
Everything I say is easily spun
Today I might be careless
Tomorrow, I might be a stranger to fun.

Like some paralyzed redeemer
Kicks against the bricks he stacked up one by one
I could believe these walls are only built to fall
I could destroy them all and say “well, that’s done.”

Cause you know that Time’s the Rearranger.
Honesty’s a cold sharp knife.
Welcome to the danger of livin’ with a changin’ mind.
Yeah, no, no, yeah.

I’m an organ doner
I’ll let you have my heart but I might want it back.
An old-fashioned loner
I’m sadly older like a senile widow in the bric-a-brac.

I don’t want to believe
That I’m always gonna be like that.
I’ve never been the same since that day in May
When I lost my name in a deal gone bad.

I’ve known some dirty rollers
Leavin’ love to chance.
Wouldn’t know the difference
Between their heart and their pants
But they handle their dice like a rosary.
They’re never late for breakfast
They like a lot of sugar in their tea.
I’d have to filibuster confess if I ever did go straight.
I don’t give it all to God, but I do give it all away.

I’ve got a dog named Moses
He chases rabbits in the burnin’ bush.
He’s always comin’ up roses
Gnawin’ on that old smokehouse apple-wood.

I’ve learned a lot of things from him
Like trust your nose and sleep in the sun.
Someday he will be gone
And I will linger until all my songs have been sung.

The Trouble Eureka, California

Love, indeed, rules the world; and as Northern California rock group The Trouble muses in their debut album, sometimes love rules the world with an iron fist.

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.
