lyrics

You keep looking toward the big time.
You don’t know when, but it’s gonna come.
You say you saw yourself up on the big screen.
You see the bait but not the hook.

You live your life it’s a fetish party.
I call you the bride of “Live Free or Die”.
If you’re a nonbeliever in the end times,
Then anything goes.
California song.
My California song.

Everybody talking about the future
Like it’s sitting here in this dive bar,
And not sweating behind in some bunker
Where we are afraid to look.

I keep on dreaming of the palm trees burning.
Boom, boom, boom, they go up in flames.
If you don’t believe in premonitions,
Then anything goes.
California song.
My California song.

You think you’re dying in this small town.
One more shut-in winter will be the end.
Don’t you think I’ve felt the same thing?
But once you go you can never come home.
You won’t be the same.

My California song.

about

Putnam Murdock Massachusetts

Every Thursday night the Centre Streeters would gather in circle in a living room and evoke every damn lost, drunk, and brokenhearted song known to man... in four part harmony of course. Each time brought me closer and closer to the point of knowing no other way of life. My bio is isn't finished, but I've been gifted with humility. Sitting in a circle, playing songs is where the real music exists. ... more
