about

"Blood Red Moon" is the third full-length album released by Glenn Yoder under his own name and the second alongside his band, The Western States. It was recorded primarily live in a large room with exposed beams in the producer's mother's house in Lamoine, Maine, near Bar Harbor. The gracious host cooked up a storm of delicious food. There was a wild turkey on the premises. It was a nice experience. All told, the band had an amazing time making this album and hopefully that joy of playing together comes through your speakers.

Track Name: 1171
There's a place that I would go when I was younger
Down 1171 to the countryside
And I would drive my father's car 'cause it was faster than mine
Teenage Fanclub turned up loud
Out there the sky went on forever
Looked like Texas wants to look
Just some fields, fences and cattle
No suburban sprawl bullshit
I would pull to shoulder
Kill the engine and look at the stars

Take me back to the place out past the Copper Canyon
Where we went late at night
Take me back to the place the world seemed at its widest
If that even still exists

And I was young, stupid and happy then
Hadn't felt my heart break inside my chest
Hadn't doubted everything I ever thought about myself
Hadn't grown up just yet
There's an airport off the road there
Let's drive on the runway tonight
I'm singing

Take me back to the place out past the Copper Canyon
Where we went late at night
Take me back to the place the world seemed at its widest
If that even still exists

I would pull to shoulder
Kill the engine and look at the stars

Take me back to the place out past the Copper Canyon
Where we went late at night
Take me back to the place the world seemed at its widest
If that even still exists
If that even still exists
If that even still exists
Oh, if that even still exists
Track Name: Let Her Down Easy
We've been up for hours going over the same old course
Chased our tails so long forgot what we were looking for
Let me lay my head down for awhile, just a detour
Something's broken but what it is, I'm never sure

I want to understand you, want to know where you're coming from
Show me all the love you keep hid from everyone
She's gonna wear me down to nothing, straight down to the bone
I'll lay awake for hours just to hate what we've become

So let her down easy
Let her feel nothing but love tonight
She's gonna take it easy
There's nothing more to do to make this right

Been looking at your pictures, forgetting all that went wrong
It's easy to forgive or forget when you're not around someone
I want to reach out, want to tell her all I've been thinking of
It just hurts worse, it's just no good for anyone

If this is really it, if we're gonna make it stick for good this time
I'll never forget what it was like to have you in my life

Let her down easy
Let her feel nothing but love tonight
We've got to take it easy
There's nothing more to do to make this right
Let her down easy
Let her feel nothing but love tonight
We've got to take it easy
There's nothing more to do to make this right
Track Name: Ferris Wheel
Let me off your ferris wheel now if you want to
Think we're both a little tired of whirling around
Say you're getting much more than me from the ride here
Feel nervous with my feet this high off the ground
There's a couple in the car opposite us
Struck dumb by love and living it up
I remember seeing that kid when we were younger
Never seemed to have the smallest bit of luck

Wish I could be that fool for the first time
He kept a smile that looked naive at best
Always wondered if he'd find what he wanted
He never bothered doubting it

Sun is setting and the air it gets a little colder
Everyone here leans in close
Couples stream to their cars headed for home now
Ferris wheel grows dark and comes to a halt

Wish I could be them fools for the first time
With a smile that looks naive at best
Always wonder if I find what I'm wanting
If I can keep from doubting it

Let me off your ferris wheel now if you want to
Let me off your ferris wheel now if you want
Let me off your ferris wheel now if you want to
Let me off your ferris wheel now if you want
Let me off your ferris wheel now if you want to
Let me off your ferris wheel now if you want
Let me off your ferris wheel now if you want to
Let me off your ferris wheel now if you want
Track Name: Drunk on You
I'm tumbling, baby, three sheets to the wind
Headed down Sycamore, glassy eyes and a Cheshire grin
You call a love drunk when I wander home
Wake up real early wearing all of your clothes

I want to get drunk on you tonight
I want to feel helpless like a child
I want to get drunk on you
Stumble into the darkness 'til you make me see stars

Having my heart broke, oh, it all went so wrong
Found me a person that could right everything that I done
Oh, I'm gonna love somebody, they gonna love me right back
Gonna have my heart on a string and I'm never gonna have a chance

I want to get drunk on you tonight
I want to feel helpless like a child
I want to get drunk on you
Stumble into the darkness 'til you make me see stars

I want to get drunk on you tonight
I want to feel helpless like a child
I want to get drunk on you
Stumble into the darkness
Yeah, I want to get drunk on you tonight
Yeah, I want to feel helpless like a child
I want to get drunk on you
Stumble into the darkness 'til you make me see stars
Track Name: Blood Red Moon
Oh, the night it makes fools of us
It gets its voice into our heads and drains
The part of our conscience that directs us straight ahead
It puts drinks into our throats and evil thoughts into our minds
Cheap perfume on our clothes, things we regret from tonight

Oh, the soil it ain't done with us
It wraps its little arms around my feet
Grows roots until I'm stuck here in this town where I can't breathe
I can't live like this, I can only sway with the breeze
So cut me down and chop me into something quite different

Don't know why I feel this way tonight
Don't know why I feel this way tonight
Don't know why I feel this way tonight
Don't know why I feel this way tonight

Oh, the night it ain't done with us
It sinks its fangs into our necks and drains
The blood from our bodies, paints the moon a gory red
Looks just like the sun up in the sky, throwing light a million miles
And dangling from a branch about to drop

Is this why I feel this way tonight?
Is this why I feel this way tonight?
Is this why I feel this way tonight?

Is this why I feel this way tonight?
Is it why I feel this way tonight?
Is it why I feel this way tonight?
Is it why I feel this way tonight?
Track Name: Spain
Spain is stealing my woman for awhile
Just left and my mind is running wild
Tried to call her but she's with Spain
Spain is stealing my woman for awhile
Late night dancing and a lot of good wine
Think I'm losing her to Spain

Spain is stealing my woman for awhile
Haven't heard from her for hours tonight
Why would she pick me over Spain?
Spain is stealing my woman for awhile
Crazy theories running through my mind
Think I've lost her to Spain

Wish that I could take this jealous old heart
Trade it in for the one I had before
Think I've lost her to Spain
Track Name: Why'd You Hurt Me?
You gave up on love that we shared
Gave up our love 'cause you were scared
Said you need something you can't explain
Left only questions and a world's worth of pain

Why'd you hurt me?
Why'd you hurt me?

Don't know what to do with the days
Time keeps ignoring that everything has changed
Now your voice sounds so empty on the phone
Voice I remember belongs to a ghost

Why'd you hurt me?
Why'd you hurt me?
Why'd you hurt me?
Why'd you hurt me?

Back in my arms again
Who cares if I need to pretend?
Oh and something is broken inside
Parts are now dark where there used to be light

Why'd you hurt me?
Why'd you hurt me?
Why'd you hurt me?
Why'd you hurt me?
Track Name: Where Does Love Go to Die?
It's written on your face
Our love has turned to hate
Friends think you're doing fine
But I see that dark look in your eye

Well, where does love go to die?
Where does love go when it dies?

My heart is caked in rust
Knowing I abused your trust
Wondering if I'll ever find that again
Or if I even deserve that

Where does love go to die?
Where does love go when it dies?
Where does love go to die?
Where does love go when it dies?

Heat's off and the pipes are froze
Head to a place I know
Belly up and pound it down
Gonna put these bad thoughts in the ground
Well, why did I waste my time?
Why did I waste my life?
Ain't like you're gonna be my friend
So what's the point in going over again?

Where does love go to die?
Where does love go when it dies?
Where does love go to die?
Where does love go when it dies?
Where does love go to die?
Where does love go when it dies?

Why'd you hurt me?
Why'd you hurt me?
Track Name: Beautiful Eyes
Do I treat you like you deserve to be treated even after all this time?
Do you still feel nervous when you hear my voice on the other end of the line?
Does it feel brand new, am I thinking of you as often as you'd like?
Or is the spell now broken, are you tired of going over the same things every night?

Darling, ooh, what's hiding in you?
In those beautiful eyes
Those beautiful eyes

I'm clinging to you like the last thing that's true, only thing real in my life
Do I come off pathetic like a lovesick dog wondering what's on your mind?
You can push me away a thousand times in a day, when I'm just trying to make you smile
Would my spirit break, would my heart give way, if I disappear in those eyes?

Darling, ooh, all I wanted was you
And those beautiful eyes
Those beautiful eyes
Those beautiful eyes, yeah yeah
Yeah, your beautiful eyes, yeah yeah

Darling, ooh, what's hiding in you
The last thing that's true
All I wanted was you
And those beautiful eyes
Those beautiful eyes
Yeah, your beautiful eyes
Those beautiful eyes
Track Name: Memory
She's like a bird that flew too far from home
Has no place to go when it's snowing outside
She's like a boat on the open sea
Floating aimlessly, hoping she someday sees the sand

One day she'll cry out, a stranger by now
As she pushes past me, disappears into the crowd
She'll be someone I will never need, just a memory
She washes over me

She's like a book I read so long ago
Story's filled with holes, don't know how the ending goes

One day she'll cry out, a stranger by now
As she pushes past me, disappears into the crowd
She's just someone I will never need, just a memory
She washes over me

Quiet now, she's crying now, she needs somebody but I won't be there to help

She's just someone I may never need, just a memory
She washes over me
She washes over me
Track Name: Passengers
Touching down on frozen runway
Passengers push to the front
Everyone rushing to someone
Back home there's no one to wake up
The house it seems so quiet
I talk just to fill the place up
Doesn't matter how it all started
Always ends with me hurting someone

Dreaming about the ocean
And her lying next to me
Dreaming about the future
Whatever it was supposed to be

I go running in the dead of winter
Try to eat well and keep myself strong
Keep my mind clear of the darkness
I can only stave it off for so long

Dreaming about the ocean
And her lying next to me
Dreaming about the future
Whatever it was supposed to be
Dreaming about the ocean
Our hearts floating out to sea
Dreaming about the future
What's left of you and me
