grolschie Somewhat darker than Glen's music with Toad. I love the melody on 'Let's Ruin Everything Tonight'. That telecaster (presumably) playing on 'Revelator', wow! This EP is best played loud. :-) Favorite track: Revelator.

Emberley Patience This album is a must for a fan Glen again adds multiple styles on many levels in his music I can only hold him in the category of ever changing music and most unexpected sounds
and can always expect I will love anything this artist creates Favorite track: Chapel Perilous.

Eileen Potocnak Arnold "The Hole" is known to many from 'Breaking Bad' on AMC, but the lyrics are what draw me to this song. Glen always manages to capture facets of universal feelings or issues, and draw you in through his vocals and arrangement.

The Hole 03:32
Behind the house the ground has opened up And it’s so deep a hole its bottom can’t be found It sucks the air inside And makes quiet sea sounds We sometimes stand and linger at the edge We like to dare each other how close we can get And there’s a pact we’ve made If one should fall the other follows in We started small with trash and rotten food And then the neighbors came with cars and sofas, too And soon the government had midnight dumps Of what, we never knew A letter came the other day From clear around the globe It said “We hope that you’re the ones “On the other end of the hole “Could you please take a few things back “Our country’s getting full” Behind the house The ground has opened up

Brain trust kid, you’re not getting smarter If you can’t adapt, it only gets harder Things used to be so clear Sad soul songs you sing to yourself In your cell, awaiting the help You were promised that never appeared Oh, brain trust kid There’s nothing in the world to save you The big word whiz with nothing to say But a little attention a whole foot away Could’ve changed everything for us all And all the brain trust kids, are just getting older On the skids and losing their lustre I remember when you were a star There’s nothing in the world to save you now As everyone lines up to blame you Oh, brain trust kid Oh, brain trust kid So much for the best laid plans the world has never seen But we’ll stay heroes in each other’s eyes Beloved in our dreams Oh, brain trust kid Oh, brain trust kid There’s no one in the world to save you

All my life I’ve disappeared Told myself it would get better So my wife you lead me here To Chapel Perilous, I enter All the blessings of the world Could not heal the sadness in me As poppies in the light unfurl So might I if truth shine near me Take me Guide my hand Take me in The hand that left its mark on me Is the only hand to heal me Or the gates to paradise Are barred and bolted, all locked to me Take me Guide my hand Take me in Take me Guide my hand Take me in And the mouth that took the breath from me And left my tongue a burning desert I will kiss so hard it bleeds I will bring the rains to wet it Take me Guide my hand Take me in Here in Chapel Perilous Kings are made and lives are ended And I will learn to trust my love Until the bonds we severed are mended Take me Guide my hand Take me in Take me Guide my hand Take me in

Black dog beside me Keep me from trouble Rain on the road And no fence in sight Black dog beside me Follow the highway Once 'round the ring And out of the night Is somebody dreaming us Even the gold has gone to rust Is somebody dreaming us Dry mouth, I taste dust Soon as you leave me Trouble come my way Rain on the road And pack on the prowl Lost my confessor Lost my protector Matter of time And the pack will come down Is somebody dreaming me Painted eyes, wooden teeth Is somebody dreaming me But the black dog is no dream Hey, why you run off so far from home Pack tear you up and chew on your bones They'll bury you under a piece of would that say "He who run off always come home for good" Black dog beside me Keep me from trouble Rain on the road And no fence in sight Walk beside me Follow the highway Twice 'round the ring And into of the night

Don't be so sad You've got more than one chance to love Change should be a friend Let go the past and come to me Give up control You're driving yourself crazy Let me console you Lose yourself in me Let's ruin everything tonight No good, no evil No sin, no devil Just you and me And no consequences waiting Your little world Built on big dreams Is ready to fall down You're ready to be released She's gone and now It soon will be revealed Your perfect little world Was just a perfect little jail We'll ruin everything tonight And when we wake to morning light We'll open our eyes and see We didn't ruin anything Open our eyes and see We didn't ruin anything You'll be happy with what you've got You'll be happy with what you've got And you'll have me if you want

The Innocent 03:22
We used to fit together, she was so open Let me in deep, fed my hope and The years flew by now we’re older and broken What did I do to make this bright light go dim My, my, how things change Bitter is the fruit of the love we made Good god, what did I say To make you repeat my mistakes this way I’ve never prayed, you owe me nothing But if it’s judgment day leave her and take me She’s the innocent, I’m the one you’re wanting If it’s judgment day leave her and take me You used to sleep on my chest, your body so warm The top of your head still smelled like a newborn You were salvation, I thought you could atone for me But I’m just the same and you’ve sins of your own, I see My, my, how we grow Crooked as the seed that our fathers sow I’ve never prayed, you owe me nothing But if it’s judgment day leave her and take me She’s the innocent, I’m the one you’re wanting If it’s judgment day leave her and take me Good god, it’s the family disease We’re bent as the branch on the cottonwood tree I’ve never prayed, you owe me nothing But if it’s judgment day leave her and take me She’s the innocent, I’m the one you’re wanting If it’s judgment day leave her and take me Leave her and take me
