Down the rabbit hole and into the mind Buried deep are some dreams you'll find Dreams that never seemed to matter a lot until now All I want is for these years to pay off To know the joy of getting what I want Just to feel that, just this once, right now I know how long you have waited I know how long you have suffered in silence Faith has tested your patience Soon enough, son, you'll get everything you want I watched you struggle Worried for you like you were my son A stranger any other, my flesh and blood I know how long you have waited I know how long you have suffered in silence When we have finally made it We'll say this is what it's like to get everything you want Lights on, don't let me down Bring me what I want A long time has come around This is what it's like to get everything you want I know how long you have waited I know how long you have suffered in silence When we have finally made it We'll say this is what it's like to get everything you want Who knows how long? How long?

Don't take much now to be my friend Just a call every now and again I just want you to long for me Have you forgot all of the good times? Have you moved on with your precious life? I just need you to comfort me Someday, baby, right or wrong Won't matter much if any at all Won't matter at all I just want you to love me, that's all I've been fighting with my best friend I've been losing even when I win I just need you to pay for this Falling back on these foolish lines It's like falling down for the very first time I don't want to give you this Someday, baby, right or wrong Won't matter much if any at all Won't matter at all I just want you to love me, that's all I've been waiting by the telephone Hoping you call and find nobody home I just want you to love me, that's all Someday, baby, right or wrong Won't matter much if any at all Won't matter at all I just want you to love me, that's all

There's a sea of sadness There's a flood of guilt There's a river of tears You're barely keeping afloat Looking out past the horizon See the world unfold City sparkles like a diamond You'll be there before you know When you're lost on the current, can't find your way home Just row So you swear you're sinking Say there's a hole in your boat But there are people who love you They won't let you go There's a full moon rising Waves follow its call Brightest stars shine twice here They're leading you home When you can't keep from drifting, want to jump overboard Just row So you got some holes to fill You got some time to kill And you don't know which way to go when you're low Just row, you row There's a sea of sadness There's a flood of guilt There's a river of tears You're barely keeping afloat

Whatever happened to your strange younger brother? He was always good with his hands Built things that he would just think of Never drew up a plan He'd write his first and last name in perfect cursive Never could read real well He joined the theater, skipped every rehearsal Still got to know all the girls Never wanted to hang around us He didn't have many friends of his own He'd spend hours alone in his basement Never said much to anyone He moved out of the house first chance that he got Didn't say goodbye to your mom He brought a girl on the road, some actress he'd met Left behind everyone so that he could be free People said he was living in Alaska That's not too hard to believe I could see him working the boats there Somewhere he could just breathe Maybe he moved up north, where no one knows his name And no one will be asking for him He could be anyone, do anything, maybe even start again Somewhere he could be free Whatever happened to your strange younger brother? Heard that he hit it big Made millions on the internet and married that actress They could be living downstate with a couple of kids But not once have they called It broke your mama's heart on the day that he left She never will understand why he needs to be free Whatever happened to your strange younger brother? He was always good with his hands Never could tell what he wanted But maybe he had a plan

I am constantly surrounded, haunted by the doubts and regrets I am forced to read about it, since no one keeps their thoughts in their own heads That you've got this pretty new thing But it won't stay new for long You've got this pretty new thing What happens when it's gone? You might catch me out on weekends, pass me on my way out of Toad You might look at me with pity, ask what I got coming down the road Say you've got this pretty new thing But it won't stay new for long You've got this pretty new thing What happens when it's gone? Well, it broke my heart to give up, especially when there's work left to do But when does the dreamer simply become the fool? We built an empire that was set to expire before anyone knew And with ruins all around us, there's only one thing left to lose And you've got this pretty new thing But it won't stay new for long You've got this pretty new thing What happens when it's gone? You've got this pretty new thing What happens when it's gone?

Someone's in my bed, someone is wearing my clothes I can smell that putrid scent under my pillows Who the hell let him in here? This ain't some fantasy I can hear him breathing Someone is messing with me Someone's messing with my head Someone's in my car, I can tell it's been drove Someone's biting my fingernails right down to the bone Where the hell did this come from? It ain't some paranoid dream I've got to tell someone Somebody's messing with me Someone's messing with my head Someone's in my house, someone is with my wife Someone is taking my kids away saying that I'm not quite right Is it my religion? Is it something I believe? Got this strange suspicion Someone is messing with me Someone's messing with my head

Eighteen years old, driving his daddy's car Thinks he knows about the city because he came here on a trip before He's from two hours south and a world away Just wants to hang out, turns his stereo up louder Where do all the new folks go? Past the Union and Antone's To get in the know Girls are all done up, got their best clothes on All the ones they stole from mama's old boxes Boys are running wild, first time away from home All they want is the girls to come back to their rooms later Where do all the new folks go? Past the Union and Antone's To get in the know There's some kids hanging out on the Drag tonight Lost beneath the city and a million lights Finally on their own for the first time There's some kids hanging out on the Drag Drinking Shiner Bock, smoking a little pot Just trying to wash off that shiny new car scent There's some kids hanging out on the Drag tonight Lost beneath the city and a million lights Finally on their own for the first time There's some kids hanging out on the Drag tonight

He never cared much for high school, only liked to sing He started up a four-piece band with some drop-out friends Met himself a girl at a dive bar gig, said her name's Lorraine Oh Lorraine, oh Lorraine He wrote a thousand songs about her, always used her name They married after a short while, only a few dates And a song he wrote on their wedding day got some radio play Called "Lorraine," oh Lorraine He hit the road and hit it good, left her in his wake She divorced him with evidence of his breach in faith And the judge gave her all the money from the song that bears her name Oh "Lorraine," oh Lorraine Now 10 years gone and the band's broke up, taking real jobs to get paid He keeps writing songs every night, they all sound just like "Lorraine" Can't shake the fear of being known for a song that brings him pain Called "Lorraine," oh Lorraine Now and again he'll go to the Rhythm Club where the bar staff knows his face His picture's up there on the wall, back from the good old days If they ask him to, he'll do a set, and he always closes them with "Lorraine" But most nights he just watches the band, these young guys sure can play And he worries that one might write a song cursed just like "Lorraine" Oh Lorraine, oh Lorraine

She's got that evil look even when she's laughing Perched there a mistake waiting to happen Oh, you can tell by the way she talks She's got something that she's covering up But I still want you so bad Says, "If you try too hard, well, you might get hurt Get too close and you might get burned" But I still want you so bad Yes, I still want you so bad She's got a childhood that she's desperate to lose Got lost walking in other people's shoes Says, "If you try too hard, well, you might get hurt Get too close and you might get burned" The night is closing in and she hasn't moved an inch Still perched up there waiting for me to flinch Oh, you can tell by the way she walks She always wins without trying at all But I still want you so bad Says, "If you try too hard, well, you might get hurt And if you get too close then you might get burned" But I still want you so bad

Oh, come on, little one, don't you hang your head and cry You're so beautiful without trying You're stuck on the wrong side of 30 and looking behind Wondering what you did with the time Oh, he tries to make you into something that you're not You should be loved for what you are Even men who have it all want more and more from their lives Get so distracted that they go blind Maybe he's not the man for you, maybe he's just not that guy It's still gonna hurt Maybe he's not the man for you, something just don't feel right It's still gonna hurt The years, they pile up, oh, months of things unsaid How much farther can your heart bend? Oh, you can't make him into something that he's not Even though you try so hard Maybe he's not the man for you, maybe he's just not that guy It's gonna hurt Maybe he's not the man for you, something just don't feel right It's gonna hurt Oh, come on, little one, don't you hang your head and cry You're so beautiful without trying You're stuck on the wrong side of 30 and looking behind Wondering what you did with the time Maybe he's not the man for you, maybe he's just not that guy It's gonna hurt Maybe he's not the man for you, something just don't feel right It's gonna hurt

She's got a hold on me like a melody that I once heard her singing Like that song, she's got a hold on me Tried my best to keep it at bay, I must have tried everything It all crumbles down when she says my name Now she's playing in my head like a radio song I forget the words, I still hum along Playing in my head like a radio song Feel like a child when I'm in her sway, hopelessly lost but somehow safe That voice is inside me deeper than I can say Now she's playing in my head like a radio song I forget the words, I still hum along Playing in my head like a radio song Oh, she's playing in my head Infatuated, I trace her name, I want to know everything Consumed by her in every way She gave me love that wasn't hers to give The record is warped and the needle skips But in my mind, the song still plays Now she's playing in my head like a radio song I forget the words, I still hum along Playing in my head like a radio song Oh, she's playing in my head

Tomorrow it'll be over, all of this time will have passed us by The few things that will linger will need to be hidden, at least a little while I wondered how things would end here if they ever needed to end at all Could our story be different, not like the others, was that asking a lot? And I was lucky to have felt this once in my lifetime The sky looks like a black hole, darker than darkness and growing wide Tonight I'll go weightless, float above treetops and climb inside And I feel like I've been falling, deeper and deeper, for quite some time And if there's light on the bottom, oh you know, still won't feel right I was lucky to have felt this once in my lifetime When the lights get softer and softer, the room grows quiet, I'm by myself I know what I'll be thinking, trying to hold on to how this dream felt But when I close my eyes to remember, features are grainy like old TV And I lie awake for hours as it slips away, this memory And I was lucky to have felt this once in my lifetime

about

"Javelina" is the second full-length album released by Glenn Yoder under his own name, and the first since the end of the award-winning rock group Cassavettes. Yoder released "Okono Road" in 2009. The Boston Phoenix named "Javelina" one of the "10 records that will set the tone in 2013," writing, "The former Cassavette rocks out a bit more than in past turns, but still retains the charm that made his former band one of Boston's brightest." To record the album, Yoder gathered his longtime backing band, The Western States, with producer Jeremy Moses Curtis (Booker T, Bow Thayer & Perfect Trainwreck) and engineer David Minehan (The Neighborhoods, Paul Westerberg). The result is "Javelina," a record that runs from pop confections to dirty blues and back again.
