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.

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

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

You're chomping at my forest to see what kind of trees to report to the authorities Authority is what my forest needs!

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

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!

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!

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

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

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

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

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...

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
