Second Tuesday Of Never

by Randal Prater

1.
Solo for so long Lonesome, oh Skyward I see Clear visions Inward reflections Bring me peace Skyward I see Bare branches Beauty to me Consists of One chord, one sound Pure poetry Bare branches & beauty
2.
Control Alt 02:52
The garden is as overgrown As the details of my life The stars are farther than you throw And the deal is fight or flight The alt is ready to control With a leash that is your life There's hesitation to be shown When the deal is black or white
3.
Double Deuce 03:25
Double deuce, one day soon Maybe redundancy is key He's a fool, you're a jewel Baby, we'll learn to count to three Bop bop bop Pop pop pop Double liar, into the fire Lately the poison pill is free Live wire, can you get higher Baby, back to the nursery Double deuce, ride the moon Maybe we'll play the game with three Num Nums and Wiggles too Say cheese and dance around with glee
4.
There's an elephant in this room And I don't know what to do I'm so dizzy and fatigued I close my eyes... and fly With you it's like we're on a spaceship That takes us farther from Earth each day I love numbers, but I hate math I close my eyes... and fly Fly, fly away
5.
Night fell on the forest lawn The sinking of the faces Eyes are skipping past the spot Where prominence replaces Hiding in plain sight Sentimental starlet falls The bending of the traces Wonder where the feeling goes When karma comes in phases
6.
Latency 03:00
Lying dormant in the tender trap Resting, waiting Looking forward through a magic hat Flying, dreaming Volcanos, mostly mountains, biding time Suspended, inactive Waiting for a future when you're mine Unending passion Latency, latency
7.
Lazy Haze 01:28
Willow, soft as tomorrow Pillow clouds hide the sun Your eyes glow with a sorrow Lazy haze, you're the one
8.
It is the fading of the home That gives the heart a place to go While rumours fly we do concede That closed eyes are never free Seconds turn to minutes and Minutes burn through hours of Days and nights It's a weekly ritual It is the mating of the souls With such a long way to go The concept is so sublime But, we must wait a long, long time Months turn to years and Years burn through decades of Limited time It's a lifetime ritual
9.
Lilac heather wispy morning Brushes misty hearts a soaring Flashes with a future, what a sight Submissive, the cage is waiting Feminine, your breath is baiting Dominant, the Master, out of sight Wait, wait Tender is the texture of your Tapestries of endless pleasure Sentimental feelings in the night One day soon we'll come together Sinister in generous measure Stolen is the soul in which we hide
10.
Moore's Law 02:59
There's a trend, an acumen The machines will double In two years time, they'll double Prophesy, self-fulfilled Twice the size of trouble In two years time, they'll double Moore's law Memory capacity Processing speed A measure of capability Technological driving force Social change in our century A deadline to meet
11.
Penetration 02:49
I heed the scent of fear in inspiration Call out and plead to me Sullen with tears, your eyes a celebration Offer yourself to me Stolen, your innocence waved goodbye Bounded in ecstasy Taken, the desperation in your eyes Gave you the will to see Silk is the binding force of instigation Dashing ideas to flee Now is the fateful time of penetration Never will you be free
12.
You don't find peace until you find all the pieces We're thick as thieves and burning into the sky I smile wickedly at you before closing my eyes Our imagination steals our souls to bliss Rush so slowly and fall to your knees, dear The sky is fading, the dregs of the day This doesn't happen without you, so close your eyes Glee for the predator and gloom for the prey
13.
Bloom where you're planted Time is impatient, dear Joy is abundant When the dream brings you near Your face erases shadows Your faith eases sorrow Bloom where you're planted Time is impatient, dear

about

This is my second solo album. To get a sense of duality, I invited one friend per song to add some accompaniment. I'm thrilled with everyone's contribution. My parts were mostly dry and always acoustic and simple. No drums or bass this time. It's more of an indie folk record than a rock record. I also believe it's my best collection of songs to date. I hope you'll agree!
