Recorded at Sound Garrison in Buffalo, NY

From the soon to be released full-length, 'Prettiest Face'

East meets West on a late night train platform



She found a vortex on a park bench in Marcy Square.
Not in the middle or the other side;
But where she faced the dancing trees; i just saw a sad playground And the roots were as deep as the ocean

But I.........

Never saw any Indians; dancing on the plain, either.

I trekked a thousand miles, got red dirt on my shoes and i trudged through the rivers of ice. But i never could rouse, those ghost do a step for me.

No I....

Never saw any Indians, dancing on the plain

And Here at 2, or 3am; in the light of the projects of spirituality
No I can't see, the flow, the energy, i just wanted to touch your hand

No I....

Never saw any indians.......
