Michael Gross So glad to hear the Sprinkle Brothers making music together again! I still remember getting into my '78 Monte Carlo in 1993 and putting newly-bought "mindsize" into my CD player for the first time in Cape May Court House, NJ after leaving the bookstore with it. Fantastic EP and I look forward to more! Favorite track: Breathing Underwater.

In the fire of the summer heat Make your way to the sacred streets Far enough that you can’t be reached In the height of the rolling sun Curtains rise when you make it back Hang your coat, hang your holy head Put your feet up in the table’s edge Like the child of a chosen man I can see a light in your eyes Drowning in a dirty disguise I can show you how you can breathe Underwater with your beautiful heart on your sleeve So you can’t get your story straight Where you loved, where you full of hate? Heavy handed, an abandoned heart Where you whole, where you torn apart? I can see a light in your eyes Drowning in a dirty disguise I can show you how you can breathe Underwater with your beautiful heart on your sleeve The day has come to step out of the dark At the end you can finally start I can see a light in your eyes Drowning in a dirty disguise I can show you how you can breathe Underwater with your beautiful heart on your sleeve

I didn’t mean to lose your face I only meant to keep mine I’m looking for a higher place I’m hoping for a lifeline Would you be the one to figure it out this time? Will you stay the same while I make up my mind? Please find my way again So heavy hearted when All I can find is solitude Can I just leave this up to you? Please find my way again Another way that you could look at this is proof That I know I need you But I could chew until I break my tooth On a grain of truth Would you be the one to figure it out this time? Will you stay the same while I make up my mind? Please find my way again So heavy hearted when All I can find is solitude Can I just leave this up to you? Please find my way again

On the ground with your face in the dirt And the smell of the earth But the plane keeps coming back around On the ground Your hands over your head You could run again But maybe you’ll just give up instead You could call this inconvenient But it might be what you needed You can lay your head down When you are safe and sound Think fast or it’s over in a flash Time to make a scene Is it real or just a stupid dream? Once again in the back seat Tell ‘em to hurry Take you to someone who just might believe You could call this inconvenient But it might be just what you needed You can lay your head down When you are safe and sound Finally you can hide Here on the other side Outside the people walking by don’t know a thing Inside your mind the truth could finally set you free You’d like to blame us ‘cause we thought you were the one But you mistook yourself for someone said and done Outside the people walking by don’t know a thing Inside your mind the truth could finally set you free In the middle of the woods when you feel you might give up the fight Any minute, any second you could start to see the light

I just can’t get out of my head I’ve been hanging on by a thread The harder I try the more I lose my grip And the faster I run the more the fear digs in Early in the morning I hate to see The hungry ghost looking back at me Standing in the mirror before my eyes The hungry ghost with a face I recognize Too much is not enough Can’t seem to give it up I can’t get this out of my head All the different people I’ve been If you see me again I might not look the same If you call me again I might forget my name Early in the morning I hate to see The hungry ghost looking back at me Standing in the mirror before my eyes The hungry ghost with a face I recognize Too much is not enough Can’t seem to give it up If I can fall asleep Maybe I’l find him in my dreams And barter my broken mind For a slight reprieve I would do anything The harder I try the more I lose my grip And the faster I run the more the fear digs in Early in the morning I hate to see The hungry ghost looking back at me Standing in the mirror before my eyes The hungry ghost with a face I recognize Too much is not enough Can’t seem to give it up Too much is never enough Can’t seem to give it up

Run like you made a break Cover up your pretty face Pray that the light will change Just run like you made a break It seems like I caught you at a bad time Oh oh oh oh You just want the truth Oh oh oh oh All I want is you It took me too long to start Hold it up while it fall apart The last brick probably broke your heart Yeah it took me too long to start It seems like I caught you at a bad time Oh oh oh oh You just want the truth Oh oh oh oh All I want is you All I want is you Oh oh oh oh You just want the truth Oh oh oh oh All I want is you

This this the year we’ll make it clear We’re gonna show ‘em what we’re made of You’re gonna learn to let it burn It won’t be one to walk away from Head in the stars, well bless your heart Sleeping so far away from home now Never hold back or give it slack This is the year, you’re finally here While I waited for the rest of my life Watching it pass me by Holding the candle high I found something at the end of the rope Something that gave me hope If I can catch a hold you know I’m never gonna let go This this the year we’ll make it clear We’re gonna show ‘em what we’re made of You’re gonna learn to let it burn It won’t be one to walk away from Head in the stars, well bless your heart Sleeping so far away from home now Never hold back or give it slack This is the year, you’re finally here You say you’ve had enough That you feel like giving up Well I know where you are The perils of this road Look different when you’re not alone So I’ll hold you and you hold on to me I’ve been sending on the edge of a storm Trying to keep myself warm But we can begin to stand shoulder to shoulder and lean in This this the year we’ll make it clear We’re gonna show ‘em what we’re made of You’re gonna learn to let it burn It won’t be one to walk away from Head in the stars, well bless your heart Sleeping so far away from home now Never hold back or give it slack This is the year, you’re finally here
