lyrics

First as suffer you go looking for an answer
Because you know without an answer
You don't stand a chance
And you get gone 10,000 miles away or more

Sure as a lover of trust and hope you're open
To understanding something
Blowing in the wind
And you get gone 10,000 miles away or more

Looking through an e-mail a brother in the forest
hacking out a highway
With Paula in a room
And you get gone 10,000 miles away or more

A weird little luster shines off cobwebs in the window
In the corner of the kitchen
You're not distracted by the sun
And you get gone 10,000 miles away from more

Flat on your back in darkness staring at the ceiling
A flicker from the TV
Like a kite about to fly
And you get gone 10,000 miles away or more

The more you try to move the more you see you’re sleeping
The more your dreams are leaving
Concrete in the leaves
And you get gone 10,000 miles away or more

A fierce little beating in the sky like a heathen
A quickness in the breathing
Like some soldiers you’ve seen
And you get gone 10,000 miles away or more

Sure there's a moment, a pattern on a green street
A motion from the doorway
That satisfies the eye
And you get gone 10,000 miles away or more

First when she answers there's nothing much to speak of
But it doesn't last forever
And soon a switch turns on
And you get gone 10,000 miles away or more

about

Short Hand Muncie, Indiana

Short Hand figures that it's easier to learn to play an instrument than it is to find someone who can play it. He also figures that it's easier for him to do the writing, recording, mixing, artwork, and anything else that might need to be done. In the end, a set of sounds collect themselves into different shapes one might call "albums." Some sound like this and some sound like that. ... more
