Sirens In A Small Town

New Song. About the sirens I hear in class at Greenville. On the upcoming Pedalboy CD tentatively titled "CONRAD."

Sirens in a small town
Only can mean one thing:
Some old man
Is meeting his end.

This winter's getting so long,
Ice to water, snow white to brown.
And age is a virtue
That will let you down.

Time can do you wrong.
You think you've got so long.
But each moment that passes
Doesn't look back.

Life is like a string quartet,
Listen while the beauty lasts.
When its over
is there an encore?

"Have a bit of this fruit," she says,
"Apples are good for you," she said.
My ugly insides are showing.
"That's the price of, the price of knowing."

Thanks Joel. You're ultimately warmer than I am.

I did have a great christmas (even though a few cds are still on the way, got delayed....) Hope you had a great Christmas too, see you soon.

I'm kind of upset that you (Matt) are cooler than I am too! MAN!

I really liked the lyrics to this, I can really relate. We had a man die at the nursing home I work at on Christmas Eve. Life is short, yet precious...

Shoot what a depressing thing to write on Christmas. I didn't realize that it was the 25th when I wrote it. Oh well life is funny like that.

If you want to hear the scratch demo of this song for the HOUSE project, go to and it will be up there until we upload a more finished version once it gets more finished. So get it while the getting's good.
