Got one foot in the door Got one foot in your mouth One part of you's going nowhere The other part's going south Oh You did not do this to me Oh You did not break my machine You know I've been wrong before But I have never been so sure You did not do this to me You've got one foot in the door And you have got one foot in my mouth Most of me is within But part of my is living without
The Stranger 03:01
I met the strangest ninja cloaked in the night She said she had me in her sights But there was no gun so where was no firefight And the night folds in Like an envelope Send me away You are the dullest weapon, you are the slowest pain It obscures what should be plain You're not the antidote, you are the anti-novocain And the night pours in Like a whisky shot Drain me The shadows were swirling in the crystal The shadows... It was the saddest party under the oldest tent You couldn't just pretend In earnest I was praying for the end And the night slips through Like a swift jailbreak You can take me away
Perfume 03:06
I could see the King stooped before me, his lips to my ring, and tell me that I'm his new God, or slip down unnoticed to the cemetery where the undesirables are, or, drawing out her scent placing it on me, let the mob eat me up on the spot. They could not ever have expected they had just done it for bottled love.
Butter 02:21
Making butter with my brother of a mother that's another Love to spread like butter Not too much as to smother I was the brother who was the cutter of the butter that was cannabutter The butter is cannabutter watch out for the clutter left by my brother We close shutters as we made our butter That was the cannabutter to hide from the other The butter is cannabutter made by my brother Secrets from our mothers I'm sorry if I stuttered it's just me and my brother making butter with no other
Everyone 04:32
Drive a stake into the ground And claim this land as yours Tell everyone you know that you've Figured out everything You know the full extent of the universe At least as it pertains To you Everyone's a fundamentalist Everyone's a black cloaked rider Everyone's harbinger of doom Everyone's got the plague Raise your flag higher than mine And claim your victory And you can tell everyone that you know That you've dominated everything that you see You've got my head on a pike raised at the gates To scare off all your enemies Everyone's a politician Everyone's a murderer Everyone's a soldier in the army Everyone's a human shield
You get to be alone for a while And suddenly all those feelings you had wash away When you struck out on your own Feeling ready for anything coming Didn't know it would be like this And no amount of reveries could ever fill you up inside And when she calls you to tell you her news You feel a little out of the loop, out of line So you try not to try not to notice And try to pretend you're not jealous Because you know it's probably just pride And no amount of reveries could ever fill you up inside The fact still remains. You are losing sight of the bigger picture. The fact still remains. Of you're going to miss her. You've done the right thing. You've done the right thing. If I were a godly man, I'd pray that you've done the right thing.

Hot Ashes Minneapolis, Minnesota

Hot Ashes are loud, bombastic, yet intricate, and dare we say considered. As one wry sound man put it (is there any other kind?) we even "have the audacity to play with dynamics."
