Live at Flicker Theater in Athens, GA. Featuring Julien de Rocher and Davey Wrathgabar doing the title track from the 2008 release "The Conundrum Tree" (available on iTunes and Spotify)


If I ever see you, so it seems, we're gonna' wake up from our dreams and I'll ask you and you'll ask me beneath the old conundrum tree. We don't cry and we don't scream and we don't sing 'cause we don't say much of anything.
We make love just like a bowl of old spaghetti, somewhere between a heaven and the dirt. So we ask ourselves all kinds of really stupid questions like 'what exactly is the knowledge of the meaning of life really even worth?'
So I'll as you and you ask me beneath the the old conundrum tree. Then the idiot inside of me starts talking ideology.
Why is it that the broken heart doesn't just stop pounding? It grows stronger as the days drag on the weak. But then bitter tears just just set my senses all to long to taste again the salt of your body so sweetly.
Sit right down, my dear. These sadly silent statements sound so profound - profoundly deafening, so we ask ourselves all kinds of really stupid questions like 'how can two people ever know each other's loneliness so well when it seems they can just read each other's thoughts?'
