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


from Dignity, released March 1, 2011




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."
