Denise D Cooper I had the pleasure of seeing Jason perform in Austin Tx, and we purchased his cd at the show and came home and quickly purchased this one. it's great to see he has more music available. He has one of the most beautiful voices live that I have heard in a long time. the cd's play so great from one song to the next. You do not need to skip one or you will miss out on the entire beautiful experience. Saaaannnngggg Jason lol Favorite track: The Slowest Song Ever Sung.

about

Jason Ludwig Austin, Texas

"'Lost In Love' and 'Tanglings' are phenomenal offerings. It's almost unfair that Ludwig — formerly leader of the Rock group Noctaluca — was able to produce two full-lengths as good as these (most people would die for one in a lifetime)."
--Mike Breen, Citybeat Magazine 2011

Track Name: Tread the Sea
Tread the sea
Don't tread too far
It's a mighty mighty ocean

Tell the captain I've done no harm
Not causing a commotion

I only want to stay on Otaheite
Play on my big bongo

Wed the girl called Maimiti
She will go where I go

But he's pissing on my
But he's pissing on my parade
But he's pissing on my
But he's pissing on my parade

Tread the sea
Don't tread too far
It's a mighty mighty ocean
Track Name: Lost
Lost, I've been so lost
Land, so far away
Home, never my home
Man, never my friend

Too tired, asundered and blind
Seeing signs, the sea's not fucking around
I know it wants to pull me down

Lost, I've been so lost
Land, so far away
Home, never my home
Man, never my friend

Too tired, asundered and blind
Seeing signs, the sea's not fucking around
Asundered and blind
Seeing signs, the sea's not fucking around
I know it wants to pull me down

It's not fucking around
not fucking around
not fucking around
not fucking around
I know it wants to pull me down
down down down down down down...
Track Name: Bird Trunk
One bird, two bird, three
They don't scare you but they sure scare me
And before I'm eaten, friend,
could you stop this dream from happening?

Bird trunk
Three birds in the ground
Bird trunk
Never make a sound
Bird trunk
Such voracious carnivores
Bird trunk
Quiet evermore

One bird, two bird, three
They don't scare you but they sure scare me
And before I'm eaten again
could you stop this dream from happening?

Bird trunk
Three birds in the ground
Bird trunk
Never make a sound
Bird trunk
Such voracious carnivores
Bird trunk
Quiet evermore
Track Name: Walls of Saws
I lay down when walking into walls of saws
has taken its toll
I scream out!
You're chomping at the forest to see
what kind of trees to report to the authorities
Authority is what this forest needs!

I lay down when walking into walls of saws
has taken its toll
I scream out! (Scream out!)
You're chomping at my forest to see
what kind of trees to report to the authorities
Authority is what my forest needs!
Track Name: Hot Fudge Sundaes
Don't reason away it's murder on the brain is aching from hot fudge sundaes I ate too fast and now I'm waiting behind a turnstile, no quarter to get past is where I wanted to stay but I cannot have it all of my new seasons are melting like hot fudge sundaes

I wanted you
I only came because of
you are my pet project
I'm going to master you, I...

I dreamed of the moment as the moment passed me by the time I reach California I'll sit and wonder why I never tickled your tummy when you socked me in the crotch is always the best of places to make a man cry!

I wanted you
I only came because of
you are my pet project
I'm going to master you
Track Name: Not a Moment of Doubt
Your satellite, it's not working right
It's not transmitting the signals that you like
Well hey baby, take it from me
I know a blind one when I see one

Definitely gotta be certain now
Not a moment of doubt
Definitely gotta be certain now
Not a moment of doubt

And your reason for living
has got nothing to do with
what you take or what you're given
So just sit right there in the middle!

You're born again, so get on with it!
And hold on! Hold on!
You're born again, so get on with it!
And hold on! Hold on!
You're born again, back and forth and
hold on! Hold on!
Born again, back and forth and
born again, back and forth and
born again, back and forth in a minute

Mama don't take no shit from nobody
Daddy don't take no shit from nobody
Mama don't take no shit from nobody
Daddy don't take no shit and that's good advice
That's good advice
That's good advice
That's good advice

You're born again, so get on with it!
And hold on! Hold on!
You're born again, so get on with it!
And hold on! Hold on!
You're born again, back and forth and
hold on! Hold on!
Born again, back and forth and
born again, back and forth and
born again, back and forth in a minute

Definitely gotta be certain now
Not a moment of doubt
Definitely gotta be certain now
Not a moment of doubt
Definitely gotta be certain now
Not a moment of doubt
Definitely gotta be certain now
Not a moment of doubt
Definitely!
Track Name: Heaven's on its Way
Winter hearts, do fade away
Summer hearts, grow bigger
Men and worms, do change your begotten waste

This aging virtue
Is it worth holding onto?
Is heaven on its way?

Because when I held you in my arms
Your gun had already answered
Oh you, my psalm's refrain
We'll sing again

This aging virtue
You know, it's worth holding onto
because heaven's on its way
And when it finds you
I'm right behind you
Because heaven's on its way


This aging virtue
You know, it's worth holding onto
because heaven's on its way
And when it finds you
I'm right behind you
You know that heaven's on its way
Track Name: italics
I dip my toes into the sun
And rest my heels against the moon
Flung from the earth, I dreamed these words for you

Follow your roots
Follow your heart
It's all in your mind

Blow some wind into my eyes
Oh that my tears may wet the skies
And rain and rain and rain
So the seas may see these cries

Follow your roots
Follow your heart
It's all in your mind

My dear dead father
I was your son
But now I'm you and you are no one
And still I lift you as if you weigh a ton

Follow your roots
Follow your heart
It's all in your mind
Track Name: Hold On
When the darkness is bearing down
And it's under your ground
Never give way
Hold on
Hold on

When the promise of rescue wanes
And no hope remains
You I will save
Hold on
Hold on
I'm telling you brother!
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on

When the valor of strangers dies
No, don't close your eyes!
You I will save
Hold on
Hold on
I'm telling you brother!
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on
Track Name: Bunkum
I don't know why you always lead me away from
only seconds of anger
I'm in no hurry to leave
It's in my land, it's in my sky, it's in my ocean
It's in the path of my emotions
I'm in no hurry to leave
No one is safe when you decide
to bury a stone when there's mountains to hide
But can I come over?
Can I come in?
Look, mama, let's just be friends

I don't know why you always lead me away from
only seconds of anger
I'm in no hurry to leave
Take my pride, take my bullheaded foresight
I'll still give a good fight
I'm in no hurry to leave

No one is safe when you decide
to bury a stone when there's mountains to hide
But can I come over?
Can I come in?
Look, mama, let's just be friends
Oh look, mama, let's just be friends

You will ride the high road
I will pave my own road
You will ride the high road
I will pave my own road
Track Name: The Slowest Song Ever Sung
When I was walking through love's corridors
your doors kept changing hinges sin after sin
just to let me in
Because all you ever wanted was
a home without walls
to see it all,
to see your man,
and to understand him

Don't want to be alone
It's the slowest song ever sung
It's impossible to be alone
It's the slowest song ever sung

And I can't seem to take your picture off my dresser
I'm sick of confessing my love to strangers!
(Strangers!)
And when I strewed barbs 'round my deepest fears
to cut your heart if it got too near
I never thought that it would leave me here
I never thought that you would leave me here
And when I hung my lust from power lines
and said, "Put your lips to mine, honey, we'll be fine"
Well that was suicide, suicide!
The temptation's in my heart again
I don't know if I can start again
The temptation's in my heart again
I don't know if I can let you in
The temptation...in my heart...I don't know...
I don't know, but I got to see you
Lord I got to see you!

Don't want to be alone
It's the slowest song ever sung
It's impossible to get along
But it's the slowest song ever sung

Oh baby, I'm so crazy, you're so crazy,
and I don't know if I can take it back...
But I want it all back...
I want it all back...
If you give it, if you give it
I'll take it all back
If you give it, if you give it
I'll take it all back
I'll take it all back
I want it all back...
I want it all back...
