Iced Tea 02:37
ICED TEA (words and music by E.P. Schwartz) I'm just sittin' out here in the sun nothing on my mind my troubles behind me I've got no reason to run I swat a fly off the rim of my iced tea I've neglected to give myself a day like this for too long Now it' here and it's clear this is where I belong I'm just sittin' out here by the street working on a song and thinking about breakfast I've got no reason to run all of my tasks are avoidable tasks If Heaven exists it can't feel better than this I've got a lay of the land I've got time on my hands this is my summer jam The smell of fresh mown grass is in the air the buzz of life suspended in time is simply everywhere Do you want to get something to eat? Someone's been grilling and I could go for a gyro don't worry it's my treat and if he gets it all right, this waiter's my hero Days like this aren't what you'll remember when you go so while it's here hold it dear before you let it go The smell of fresh mown grass is in the air the buzz of life suspended in time is simply everywhere Let's find a really long road drive it 'til we see something we've never seen Listen to tunes and take it slow we can eat our gyros underneath a willow tree The gray of the road against the green and summer blue one iced tea for me one for the sun and a lemonade for you

WE SHARED A TOUCH (words and music by E.P. Schwartz) I don't know where we were going We were on the highway I was driving, my wife in the passenger seat my son, much younger was in the back... I had a phantom from my past pass me in the outside lane and I guess memories of her brought a smile to my face my wife turned to me and goes "Who was that?" I thought back and said "We shared a kiss we shared a touch saw the end of an undending love we wore down walls built up thrones choked some flowers and watered some thorns we held attention we held hands kicked up dirt and trashed the promised land we gave it a try we played the game but to save my life I can't remember her name." And we drove on. I had a phantom from my past pass me in the outside lane

Unmade 04:14
UNMADE (words and music by E.P. Schwartz) Call the preacher, ma'am Tell him I am being unmade Call the preacher, ma'am Tell himI am being unmade Tell him to hurry now I ain't got long to be saved The devil found a loose thread gonna unravel my soul The devil found a loose thread gonna unravel my soul He's gonna take all my good deeds and throw them in a deep, dark hole Ring the doctor tell him I gotta heart to loan Ring the doctor tell him I gotta heart to loan all my bright things are ashes and my love has turned to stone Call the undertaker tell him I'm a little wide Call the undertaker tell him I'm a little wide salt the earth where you bury me then shove my body inside Call the preacher, ma'am Tell him I am being unmade Call the preacher, ma'am Tell himI am being unmade Tell him to hurry now I ain't got long to be saved

THE COLD SPOT No sunrise, no dawn just the endless night I walk through this aimless world searching for a light This damn Earth won't let me go Heaven and Hell won't take me all there is is this empty room this room is home to me Another time, another place I had substance a life I could call my own now I find I haven't got a home calamity, catastrophe a cool, condescending cadaver for me now I find I'm waiting for the ascension climb No sunrise, no dawn just the endless night I move through this aimless world searching for a light but for now I wait in the darkness in the shadows behind the door I'm that little bump, that little scrape at night the cold spot on the floor You move right through me...

Days To Come 03:12
DAYS TO COME (words and music by E.P. Schwartz) Autumn's perched high in my ancient oak spilling out sprinkle red and gold Autumn eases Summer to the ground kisses her cheek says "I love you but sleep now" Grass turns to glass underneath my feet the sun pales and chill tells tales of days to come Autumn leaves apple on my lips harvest moon fall in love frost sweetens every kiss Autumn is the sound of the wind applauding leaves up the street say what they need before Winter moves in Autumn is the gloaming of the year Warm arms wrap around and smoke salts the air
