The Gifted Children – Commonwealth Squelch EP

September 7, 2005

01 – Laboring In the Dream Factory (0:46) (mp3)

spayed by the hand that held me
kept your eyes on the prize
thought you could speak new languages now
someday maybe
you’ll find me in your drafty attic
dust me off, show me daylight
let me feel the sun
and dream of machinery
to swim and never rest
making our own shoreline memories.

02 – Interstate (1:38) (mp3)

destroyed by leaky faucets
the gentle wash surrounding sheets
as the din envelops you realize
distant car noise is everything
not unlike the sound that plants make.

03 – Patched In Gold (0:23) (mp3)

we came close and felt the edge
is it contact that spoils the meat?
a galaxy of faces turned against the wind
our crescent moon now always waning

04 – The Commonwealth Squelch (1:13) (mp3)

let’s do the commonwealth squelch!
finance the firebrand
we were old once, dancing to big band
and praying for marriage
let’s do the commonwealth squelch!

Jeff Suszczynski – guitars, voice, drumset, hi-hat

  1. salutation, from Hidden Hills, California I want to tell you, I liked this post. However, it is weird how I ended up on your blog post. I searched for sight seeing chicago on YouTube and ended up on your website. I must say I do like your site and will check back soon. But I need to find the limo I was originally looking for first. Have a happy day! Cheers.
