About Redux

Redux was a five-song EP that came about because I had a few ideas left over from Neon Apocalypse that I wanted to play around with, and which I knew would not be on the next album. The experience also helped me to sort of reset my psyche, reorganize myself and prepare for the next album, but with a much smaller project. In a sense, it helped me wrap up the previous project while creating a rubric and process for the next.

The EP contains three original songs and two remixes (“Echo Papa” and “Weak”). They were fun to make and play with and the whole process made Scarlet Dawn much easier to process, organize and complete.

Release Date: October 30, 2002

Redux Lyrics

Drunk Blond

Not a flash of concentration
Through your bottled fascination
You're not lost but don't know where to go
And through your summer sweater
I can see you, sexy, so much better
Right up from your head down to your toes

You know what's right and wrong but still cannot take sides
You think you love me but the other guy decides

And through your luscious lips
I sense a swinging of those hips
I've never seen so many rhythmic undertows
A bleach blasted blister
And a hand job from your sister
It makes sense if you're the one without the clothes

I don't know you
But I feel like having fun
No I don't know you
So let's pretend that you're the one

The one

Not a flash of hesitation
Through your bottled degradation
Stumbling like no one would ever know
WooHoo! A kangaroo
It could be late it could be soon
So messed up you don't know where to go

You think you know what I don't need but I don't mind
But I'm not like those other guys who've often tried

It may
Seem obvious
In your debaucharious dress
You've never heard so many simple satin sounds
With a
Bit of finesse
And how descreetly you've assessed
Your situation will correct itself somehow

I don't know you
But I feel like having fun
I don't know you
So I'll pretend that you're the one

The one

So I'm
Not about to be obsessed
I'll probably just as soon forget
The wisdom of your modernist ego
Cos
Through your summer sweater
I can see you, sexy, so much better
Right up from your head down to your toes

I don't know you
But I feel like having fun
I don't know you
But let's pretend that you're the one

The one

For Johanna

For you
I'd walk a wire for you
To make a gray sky blue
The light to see you through
Give me something else to do
I'll do it all for you

For thee
Shade under the tree
Where time no longer flees
A hand to turn the key
What you're looking for is me
I do it all for thee

I swear
The time I held you there
By now it isn't fair
That the words are in a song

I know
As time will surely show
Paved along the road
While I hold you all night long

And wait until the dawn

For you
The things I'd never do
Told as always true
In a sea of swirling blue
I have a better view
I fall right into you

For thee
Temporarily
A touch of certainty
It's never make believe
In time I know you'll see
My heart belongs to thee

In time
The words become a rhyme
You suddenly are mine
And I hold you all night long

Tonight
Could it just seem right
Holding you so tight
I've been here all along

I'll be here til the dawn

For you

If I Could

If I could
I'd pick you flowers
From beyond the distant worlds
If I could
Buy you the ocean
For to swim amongst the pearls
If I could
I'd be your tears
For to take from you your pain
If I could
I'd bring you summer
Part the clouds on days of rain

If I could
I'd be your pillow
Help your anger disappear
If I could
I'd be the shoulder
Where you wash away your tears
If I could
I'd be the jacket
That in winter keeps you warm
If I could
I'd be your shelter
And protect you from the storm

If I could
I'd be the sky
And I'd watch you from above
If I could
Be your protection
When it comes to push and shove
If I could
I'd be the message
That would tell them how you've been
If I could
I would die for you
Then I'd do it once again

If I could
I'd make you happy
Make your wishes all come true
If I could
I'd give you everything
I'd do it all for you

If I could
I'd turn back time
And make right what once went wrong
And I'd be forever yours
Cause I've been here all along
