Godspeed 04:52
Subway train Pardon sir, you're in my way He moves like ice Strangers in his path crystallize Rush, don't he, He's moving at godspeed In a push-me crowd Wondering when we passed here and now But you seem nice There's patience in your eyes But you'll be late, buddy I'll be on time When our steps become the same You'll be running behind Don't mind me I'm falling at godspeed When a moment slips you by Take a photograph If it hurts too much to cry It's okay to laugh Grab a rose for me Grab a rose for me Grab a rose for me Grab a rose for me I'll be alright, buddy You'll be fine If I ask you about your day Can you tell me about mine? All along you just fought the tide The coroner's diagnosis is suicide The past is made of truths that you don't believe When you find you don't belong to what used to be.

Low 05:05
I bought you a table, one kitchen chair So your tired body be able to sit there And anytime you like You can call long distance with some distance A casserole is all that I've prepared Singing low, low Low, Low You bought me a new brain with both hemispheres And now I'm both logical, insane I'm laughing real tears And every time I walk I confuse my left side with my right side Singing all my songs low! I heard about your rumor And I want you all to know that There was another time when There was more than one chair But I've worn out my welcome I will remove this thorn from your side! Low! Low! Low! Low!

White Grass 04:24
Every night I dream a home Built complete with paper stone And dog in front yard When the morning sun arrives Wooden dreams are sure to catch on fire Inspired by you Yes, they surely will Took a dive on nylon grass This new pain is sure to pass It's just some rug-burn Toss a poem, I'll catch the words Tell you things you've never heard And all this madness be gone Yes, it surely will All the breaks I's counting on Rested on a wish upon an eyelash And the shadows it cast Stupid eyes of burning red Muzzled words I never said But what a lovely view! Yes, it surely is How did I get here? I've been awake too long Can you tell which way is up from me?

Condensation 04:38
Sailing on a rainy day Sand in my toes Doesn't matter what I say now Anything goes Why do you tell me silly lies? It's just another whistled fly-by I'll wait for you some day When you get your head straight The sun bursts, the cloud breaks And opens up a new day It's not the pain inside It's not that horse you ride It's not the words you say They don't care anyway It's not that heart you break It's not that smile that you fake It's not the blood you shed But it tastes like the color red It tastes like the color red If you can't get yourself sober Can you be free From this mind-erosion industry? It's not the pain inside It's not that horse you ride It's not the words you say They don't care anyway It's not that heart you break It's not that smile that you fake It's not the blood you shed But it tastes like the color red It tastes like the color red Sail along, along, along Sail along, along, along Sail along, along, along Sail along!

Insomnia 05:10
Gone, gone is your mama My warm hands feel you over My words help you believe Don't, don't tell your mama Little girl, daughter, surrender Little girl, haunted by things Am I the cause of your insomnia? Breaker of dreams that you won't give up on? Am I the cause of your insomnia? Breaker of dreams, breaker of dreams that remind you of... Watch, watch out for father He's a blade Sharpen your wits, girl You're afraid, but don't be afraid I won't, won't let him hurt you Like an inerrant animal, he beat you Not a word This happens no more Am I the cause of your insomnia? Breaker of dreams that you won't give up on? Am I the cause of your insomnia? Breaker of dreams, breaker of dreams that remind you of... Girl! What's with your sister? She's silent What have you told her? Not a word I'll see for sure! Run...go tell your mama She's the one...helps me recover... I'm the one... covered in blood

Urban soldier Unload your guns and hear your heart Pound that cold mud Shake heaven, no compromise Know it's all for you Yeah, it's all for you Stitch your fears tightly Walk through the fields of bandaged souls Save the sunlight for someone in the dark Make it shine on blue I will follow you The seasons have changed But your leaves still remain Let the love pull you in From that cold winter rain You can run from yourself But you know you won't get very far Whatever closet you're in, There you are, there you are And the hope that he feels is subtle But he feels it enough to carry on And he covers his tracks Never once looking back Looking back And he walks through the world tonight Gonna stand up and lay it down Stand up and fight! No! This summer's through Heroes die too soon The seasons have changed But your leaves still remain Let the love pull you in From that cold winter rain You can run from yourself But you know you won't get very far Whatever closet you're in, There you are, there you are

Wimp 04:52
Found another road Didn't see the signs Fell down the mountainside Faded memories I'm in misery I wanted to grow old with you And although I'm sinking low Not far to go Before I look into the mirror I can see my fear How about you, you cheer me up Make me laugh At all of these moderated blues And when you see my faded smile You'll see that I am destined to lose Found another hole I didn't wanna go in jaded wonderland, wonderland Rescue me Please don't leave I'm asking you to believe in me And although I'm sinking low Not far to go Before I look into the mirror I can see my fear How about you, you cheer me up Make me laugh At all of these moderated blues And when you see my faded smile You'll see that I am destined to lose It's a hip, modern romance Without the romance I need you to feed me, heal me, help me Gain from my ruin! How about you, you cheer me up Make me laugh At all of these moderated blues And when you see my faded smile You'll see that I am destined to lose

Second Wind 03:51
I was walking under concrete railroad skies When I saw you leaving on that train It opened my eyes, uh huh If I hadn't thought of doing what I'd done before You might never left a trail of teardrops Out the front door, uh huh You're on the streets again I need a second To get a second wind I need a second To draw you back again I need a second To tell you all my sins, uh huh I'm a massacre trapped in a suit and tie I've got nothing up above or below I'm out of my mind, uh huh You're on the streets again I need a second To get a second wind I need a second To draw you back again I need a second To tell you all my sins, uh huh To tell you all my sins, uh huh

Provoked 04:34
She's a torn apparition in my head Coming untied, eyes wide, I fly tonight In an instant, she darkens like the dead Coming unlivened, eyes go blue to bled First she dies, then she goes! First she dies, then she goes! She could sweeten my coffee with her fingertips A cup of the joe, then a slow kiss on the lips I turn right back to the comics, Light her cigarette I tell her the joke, through smoke, provoked her to laugh First she dies, then she goes! First she dies, then she goes! I'm a book without pages And girl you read ahead I want to console your soul And I don't care where First she dies, then she goes! First she dies, then she goes! First she dies, then she goes! First she dies, then she goes! First she dies, then she goes! First she dies, then she goes!

A kiss from Mama, grinning So this is my beginning You look around you, baby You might get lucky, maybe If you fall down, I'll catch you Even if I fall before you Fools are blind All is mine Catch me flying Through a space in time I'm smashing models and hot wheels Does this reflect how I feel? I said to mama, "I'm hungry! Do I have to eat these lima beans?" I'm shooting planets KABOOM! Mama sent me to my bedroom With the earth behind me, shrinking In a moment I'll be sleeping, sleeping, sleeping...

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
