We can take a break, if you want to Take a little rest if you need If it’s heavy put it down in the soft leaves Listen to the wind in the trees I said take another step, if you want to Take deeper breath if you need Look into the sky, past the red leaves Listen to the wind in the trees A quiet little place we can run to Sunlight on my face, like I need It’s gone without a trace, in a daydream A note without a place that I sing We can take break Take a little rest If it’s heavy put it down in the soft leaves Listen to the wind in the trees

Head at your feet, you’re falling asleep in the underground Crowding the yards and counting the stars in the afterthought Wake with the party, drown with the conscious tic of the tongue I’m on the sidewalk wishing I was Washington or Jefferson or Hamilton I’ll take you back to the latter days The joy parade, the candy taste All red and white - a seeing eye Open the pawnshop, hock your songbirds, your dogs in drag Open the sky, the vulture eye is closed for now And you’ve caught the ears of everyone up with Your holy dream, your Hollywood, your Union Street Your commune in the old neighborhood My teeth are wood. My hair is gone But both my lungs are going strong I know it now. I did it all in my head I know what you are I know what you are Down on Union

Down every street, down every block I get behind the ticking clock The light will set me running I can see the sun, I can see it coming When we were young our father said “It’s in your heart, not in your head That’s just a river running.” Around the bend, I can see it coming I found a job across the tracks I break the bank, I break the back I will, I will keep running Another day - I can see it coming Now I’m there all day and I don’t know why This little life it don’t seem mine I’m holding on to nothing But you and a song, a song I’m humming It goes “All good things they come in twos And baby I’m in love with you” A little luck could set us running I can see, I can see it coming

Spring is arriving with its longer days Will you pass the evening hour with me? I know the promise of the better days I meet the sunset with a steady gaze And the kinder times commence Cars pass slowly when dark skies emerge But the trees are blossoming A tattered loveseat on a windowed porch Sit beside me and we’ll watch the storm There’s no gain in worrying The clouds roll in, the thunder claps like a gun in the night The gusting wind brings stinging rain, Sorrow passes like a ghost in the night But she and I, we’re safe upon the higher ground The better days are knowing what we have right now She said “I love you in a hundred ways” And “I will need you till my resting day” Will you pass the evening hour with me

As one dies so does the other – Vanity I have devised many schemes I eat and drink whatever, I eat and drink forever – Vanity I have devised many schemes My head’s on tight. Oh baby, I saw the light – Vanity! I have devised many schemes O my time above O my mind my love O my time my love Belong to me now As one dies so does the other

You put it back to your head, I knew you would Take another ride, take your time, to feel so good Pray to be revived - among the clouds There’s a bullet in the chamber, a lie, you feel so proud Look me in the eyes, I’m your fool Do these four walls and my weary calls feel like home to you? Strange where we’ve arrived - you’re a man alone Standing on the side of the road, boxing shadows Strange that I don’t cry, when you’re shaking in your sleep But baby, you’re the ground shifting underneath my feet It’s strange where we’ve arrived, where I don’t understand you or trust what you say It’s strange it was disguised, but I see it today and it’s breaking my heart The gun to your head is the gun to my head Why can’t you get right?

When I was young and she was well We all lived together on hospital hill She charted the stars, I dragged her around We all fell asleep with the house burning down I know something I know nothing at all I woke up in the kitchen to whistles and bells We raised seven children and gave them all hell You in your nightgown and me out to sea Our mother the mountain rolled us to sleep I know something I know nothing at all I climb up her back and stand straight and strong I didn't love you then but I sure love you now We all lived together on hospital hill When she was young and I was well I know something I know nothing at all

You could talk me into anything The sound I heard in your voice was infinity Composed and crafted your words, like a symphony A bow on a string cuts the air with its melody, a remedy, soothing me I cried last night wishing you were real Cause I was a better man when I used to feel The ghost, the god, the man, our purity The trees the sky and the plan were calamity, forgive me, I cannot see Brother, are we redeemed? Bury my bones by the lake and wash your hands clean Sister, are we redeemed? Pray my soul leaves the ground and wash your hands clean Who will speak for me? I cut out my tongue with a knife - it’s no good to me And who will see for me? I plucked out my eyes for my pride - it’s a reckoning, a cleansing, for all I’ve seen Sister, are we revealed?

She takes the high ground I’m crawling up the hill, looking for a war We could tear it all down With one drive through town With one drive into the country She shows me a place Where her mama used to dance, up on Sodom Road All the names carved in wood She says, “If you could only see what I see” Hosanna baby “But would you care if, would you care if we are poor?” I’m lost in this city I’m growing old in the rag and bone I’ve been losing hands I will leave my demands on this street Hosanna baby Take me out to the Holy Ghost Club Show me a good time
10.
Red records spin and catch you again She's sitting there in her softest grin In suits and ties without asking why A forgotten tune in the other room When you wait in the face of fate And place your hands on the pearly gates When memories fade in a frozen haze When you are lonely think of these waking days And I was blind - to the sun unkind The dust and wind turned the heat on again The brightest blue and thoughts of you Are running dreams and burning through Move to and fro to a place unknown And leaving friends to start again The pulling south - like a gaping mouth Belonging here to the end of years

Oh. I’m in the country I’m on a highway of cheap redemption Outta here The depression’s on The depression is on Governor stalls O Lord This confession is shit Well it takes a drink or two To spit it out There was a girl With eyes like UFOs I said, “Do I know you?” She said, “No” “Well I’m a country man” And I believe that it’s on Yes I believe that it’s on O Lord This confession is done Well it was nothing, now I’m through I spit it out, yeah, I let it out My blood and bones We call back home We must have seen the ten thousand things The ten thousand things Yeah, I must have seen but I don’t know I don’t know

There’s a lonely stretch of road Between Michigan and Ohio Where we’re leaving what we’ve known behind Searching for the life that we might find Moonlight from the evening sky Lights the road as cars pass by Our two souls are moving on We’ll leave the valley For the mountain We’ll find ourselves a wondrous view Where I will stay with you The wheels turn on 475 Life is passing by Our two souls are moving on You’re so sick of feeling trapped And I’m so tired of where I’ve been But we’re moving on together And you can drive or I can drive But we’re going on together

about

Old Hundred Columbus, Ohio

We play "artful folk-rock – combining the wistful grace of Wilco, the snappy forward motion of Spoon, and the lilting harmonies of Fleet Foxes". We're influenced by grunge, folk, and Americana.

Paste Magazine’s listed us as one of the “10 Ohio Bands You Should Listen to Now”. Columbus Underground voted us the “Best Band in Columbus” in 2010.

We play around the midwest. We love making music
