lyrics

I met a man locked in battle.
He said "that's the way it's always been".
Bow my head when sabers rattle,
Do I lose every time you win?

Who says that yesterday is hallowed?
When they're all just borrowed days.
You may think every pool has shallowed.
We lose tomorrow in the haze.

People say the world is dying.
That somehow we let it slip away.
So much pain, it seems there's no replying.
No chance to find a middle way.

Who says that yesterday is hallowed?
When they're all just borrowed days.
You may think every pool has shallowed.
We lose tomorrow in the haze.

Ink black and tight
These fever dreams.
Unbound and bright
Light pours between the seams.
Transforms this starless night
Reveals what lies between
The valley and the heights
What we need.
What we need...

In my head I mapped the world.
Stayed within the lines I'd drawn.
I think it's time to break the compass
I think it's time I just moved on.

Who says that yesterday is hallowed?
When they're all just borrowed days.
You may think every pool has shallowed.
We lose tomorrow in the haze.

I think it's time to break the compass
I think it's time we just moved on.

Jeff and Maya Bohnhoff San Jose, California

Jeff and Maya have an identity crisis. Their music is sometimes uproariously funny parody (like their spot-on "Bohemian Rhapsody" parody "Midichlorian Rhapsody", or hauntingly beautiful, like "Road to Jerusalem" or "Manhattan Sleeps". One way or another, their music will create strong emotions. Jeff and Maya have been creating music together since 1979, and plan to continue for some time to come. ... more
