about

Jesus on the Moon Puyallup, Washington

Jesus on the Moon is a collection of lo-fi songs I've been recording in basements, garages, and bedrooms since 2005. Recently, Derek Reed joined the ranks and, with the help of a drum machine, we've started to bring the songs to the stage.

Track Name: Mirrors and Shades
AM radio in the morning and nothing to bide my time
Ten lone shadows caught in a line
Fair-weather friends you come again

Nothing ever seems what it should be
Mirrors and shades everything holds sway

Endless days without the sunny haze
The lyre and the chase will never give away
So much history so much time
Blood on my hands and nothing to erase
Track Name: Sloe Gin
Coming down the bay
With a bottle of gin

I know what state I'm in
Fire and ice within

Do the sloe gin
To all the SOBs

I know what state I'm in
Fire and ice all right
I know what state I'm in
Fire and ice all right

Do the goddamn
To your whole family
Track Name: Posies
Who am I to hate
Your Casanova traits
I seen this film before
It doesn't end the same

Your posies on my floor
Have all got to go
Your posies on my door
Have all got to go

I don't know
Why I am this way
I don't know
Who made me this way

Ride my mind
All the frickin' time
I stutter and sway
It's all okay

Your posies in my head
Have all got to go
Your posies in my bed
Have all got to go

You're a clementine
Most of the time
A shadow of a doubt
From when we were out

Your posies got to go
Track Name: Sunday Best
The trail's overgrown
Its traces have grown cold
But I still walk it alone
Though I'm so far from home

What remains and what couldn't be

It's all become a mess
And there's nothing
Nothing else left
Of you and me at our Sunday best
We were dressed to impress

The angels stand guard
In the top of the tower
And you're still waiting
For your darkening hour

We thought we were better than the rest

I'll drink the wine
To what will never be
Ghostly and gathering the light
It's falling
It's falling
Track Name: My Creatures Have Gone Deep
I don't know what to say to you that hasn't already been said
I can't sleep can't sleep can't sleep can't sleep with you begging for more
My stories shatter like crystal chatter at the bottom of the deep
You heard them clanging in the air like a dying memory

What do you want from me
My creatures have gone deep
I am a distant thing
A shadow in eclipse
What do you expect from me
My creatures have gone deep
I am a distant ring
A phone call next door

My story mind has come to a grind
The plotlines have all frozen in the line
The bedtime stories I used to know
Have all fled into night
It's hard to sleep without distractions to keep and call our own
The TV flickers in the deep
Calling us away from shore
Track Name: Follow Me to the Backbeat
Why can't I get away
The image is stuck
Why don't you
Why don't you
Take a step on over to
The edge of me

I slow down

Why can't I
Find a place
A place in mind
I don't know
Why don't you
Why don't you
Do the things
The things I did
The things unsaid

Follow me to the backbeat
Track Name: The Sparks of Everything
Crystal corpses
Call in the futurists
This is the politics of
Love and everything

Look up into the sky
At the eternal dance

The colors and dreams all
Collide in the night sky
Our elementals are gathering inside

Look up into the sky
The sparks of everything
The sparks of everything
At the eternal dance
The sparks of everything
The sparks of everything
Continues in the night
The sparks of everything
The sparks of everything
Nothing else seems real
The sparks of everything
The sparks of everything

Waves crashing on the hood
All of creation's coming down
We'll sit and watch the lake
And the sparks of everything

The sparks of everything
The sparks of everything
Track Name: True Blue
The king wants his crimson back
True blue is for the fools
A white light in the night
I levitate on your every word

The edge of emptiness
Shapes and sounds and senses
Bright lights are burning bright
Blinding our inner sight

Our shrouds will emerge in time
The scales will fall from our eyes
Until then you can't be sure
Where you start and where you fall
Track Name: Shades of You
I've got three notches on my belt
One for you
And one for me
Seeing shades of you all around
The isotopes are soaking in

The immigrants of my mind
Are crossing to the other side
Pull the boards loose again
Admire all our undoings
Track Name: Vaunted Youth
You say you're always in the know
And it shows
I say it's all got to go
Your striking poses

Vaunted youth
Is coming down

You say life moves too slow
Don't you know
I say it's all been done before
And what are we here for
