Now there's no backing out. This is going to be reality

A house of cards...
the supple heart is not a place to dwell.
Now you have your cake. Don't hesitate.
Come on and just do it. Come on, just do it.
Put it in your mouth. There is only now.
Tomorrow has to wait.
But know there's no backing out.
This is gonna be reality.
You can never dream it down.

I have no way of telling the two apart.

Well, I made amends in the general sense...
But the devil's in the details.
And I know the cost, and I wanna stop...
But I can't do it. I just can't do it.
There was love I meant.
There were accidents.
So tell me which is which
cause I just can't work it out.
But for memory and clarity, we had better write it down.

I have no way of knowing the truth with time...dissolves...

I put the past into the ground.
I saw the future as a cloud.
If there's still time to turn around,
I'm going to.
It's just, one day I fell asleep...
And all day, all night I dream
I am the first one I deceive
if I can make myself believe the rest is easy.

Maybe Los Angeles, somewhere no one's expecting

Update on Evan Farrell

Evan passed away an hour ago.

He was 33 years old.

His family has decided to donate his organs, which considering where Pat was a year ago, is incredibaly sweet.

Our thoughts are with his wife and 2 sons.

Merry Christmas :-(

A beautiful person named Evan Farrell

Tonight we were going to have a fund raiser event at Amnesia in SF with the Japonize Elephants. A few nights ago one of the Elephants' key members, an amazing musician and beautiful person named Evan Farrell, was in a house fire and is currently on life support.

Evan's close friends decided that they would like to gather tonight at Amnesia anyway to celebrate his life with music. People will be coming at around 8:30pm to share memories, watch some of his movies, and hear some of his performances. My group will be playing at around 10pm, and the rest of the evening will be open for casual performances by many of the incredible musicians who were close to Evan.

Obviously, we'll be doing the fund raising another time. But I encourage everyone to come out and channel your generosity to Evan's family. The door will be by donation, most of which will go to the family, or you can donate to them directly. Even if you didn't know him I would encourage you to come and participate in this evening to remember Evan and what makes music so important to us- ecstasy, transcendence, community and catharsis and all that good stuff.
