There's a girl with curls somewhere in the hoosier state dreaming about leaving and eating fudgecake all the way cause sometimes late at night her daddy hits her with the garden hose and tells her that he loves her as he wipes the blood from her nose may all of your nightmares dissolve may all of the darkness change it's hue may every misfortune avoid everyone of you and may only the good dreams come true there's a poet gettin loaded writing lines for another chapbook hoping that somebody other than his buddy will care to take a look and sometimes late at night he sees a woman in his dreams with a rope around her neck and the floor so far from her feet may all of your nightmares dissolve may all of the darkness change it's hue may every misfortune avoid everyone of you and may only the good dreams come true there's a good sandman, a bad sandman and every kind in between i wish you all the best, happiness and only the good dreams

I was watching the tv while pumping gas a man came on through the plastic glass saying "buddy you won't believe what they've done now! they build a microwave, but not just any kind! you can talk to it if you're short on time! just say 'pop popcorn' and it'll do it! don't that make you go wow!" tell me frank, do you think we've run out of steam? has everybody in this god-almighty world given up or is it just me? tell me frank, do you think we've run out of steam? and all the petty stuff that they make now they spend years just trying to figure out the best way to make it break down i guess we'll never make it to the top of the charts or to the five dollar cd bin at walmart tell me frank, do you think we've killed the spark? tell me frank, do you think we've run out of steam? has everybody in this god-almighty world given up or is it just me? tell me frank, do you think we've run out of steam? tell me frank, do you think we've run out of steam? has everybody in this god-almighty world given up or is it just me? tell me frank, do you think we've run out of steam?

There once was a little star a-twinkling way up in the sky it knew all of my wishes it helped me to get by but now the little star has burnt out how i wish it would come back soon but sometimes starry wishes will not come true so it's goodbye my dear friend o what a time it's been o you've brought so much joy to this old hoosier boy and fare thee well my old pal who knows what happens now and as the sun falls west i wish you all the best so let's raise one more glass and toast to me and you to all the laughs we had to all that we've been through for tomorrow, today will be yesterday a memory bound to dissolve like every ray of sunlight slowly gone as the sun falls so it's goodbye my dear friend o what a time it's been you've brought so much joy to this old hoosier boy and fare thee well my old pal who knows what happens now and as the sun falls west i wish you all the best and as the sun falls west i wish you all the best

about

This is a new electronic solo project by Andrew.

"Here is a collection of tunes I worked up with electronic beats. I sent the rough beats over to Burke Sullivan in Fairmount, IN. He spiffed em up. Then we met up and recorded some in his studio and some at a church in Fairmount, Indiana.

There is an accompanying radio drama to go along with the music. You'll get an email with a link shortly after purchase.

Huge thanks to Burke Sullivan for undertaking this project with me. I'm forever indebted to the tremendous amount of effort you put into this project. Big thanks to Julie Bates for encouraging me to make this project a reality and helping so much." - Andrew
