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: Freudian Gobot Tender Mass
Track Name: Slipstream
Floating down the corridor of a memory
Our actions slip by like watery dream

Our shapes have no bearing on this world
They slip away in the stream forever

It's hard to fall in love with reflection
Floating on the surface of a slipstream
Track Name: In a Spell
It happens all the time
We curse our place in line
And all the things that define

I caught you in a spell
It was so hard to tell
If you would ever come up

Bastard tongues betray us now
Our own demons with no sense of how

I caught you
I caught you in a spell
And I thought you
I thought you'd never tell

I don't know what you see
A silhouette in me
Separate the love
From the chemical stuff
Track Name: Looking Both Ways Down a One-Way Street
You my friend
Come again
End this trend
Make amends

You my queen
In esteem
Comfort clean
When in need

When I'm looking down your street
I'm looking both ways down a one-way street dimly lit
And I see this strangeness

All in all
Is all we are
Empty space
A stranger's laugh
Track Name: Divide
I opened up my door
And there you were
A pale blue nothing
With your saving grace

Divide it up
Divide it up

People in shag
And love in drag
Inverse and half formed
We are all after the fact

Divide it up
Divide it up
Track Name: Cold Hard Digs
Track Name: Hollow Ways
The darkened hallways of memory
They glimmer and they glow all abstracted
And fractals and frames and things without names
They serenade us from the heavenly gates

Our lines they intersect
And then they're off into the big nothing

The big nothing
And its hollow ways

Your frosty bite and your tangled traces
Have got me all wandering again on my own
Flying machines and broken dreams
Your celestial spheres all rattle and clank

Our lines they intersect
And then they're off into the big nothing

The big nothing
And its hollow ways
Track Name: Cosmic Bells
The clarion cry
Of cosmic bells
Ring inside
All of the time

Sparks and spangles
Flicker and then they die
It's all that remains
Of my here and now

Another quantum dream
Tracing arcs through time
You and me
I'm glad we met
Track Name: Six am
