There’s No Changin’ (©2019 Anders/O’Bitz) As we wait here Lookin’ back on our lives Watchin’ others Turn into the light Mournin’ old loves Mournin’ bein’ alive Wonderin’ how we’ll Ever manage goodbye Without changin’ Cannot go back And try again with our lives Only look back And see how we might retry It’s a hard fact No wishes and no lies Cannot change that Life is this lack Preceding every try And there’s no changin’ As we wait here False bargain, true lies Hopin’ others Brighten up this night Mournin’ won’t come If mournin’ our old lies And we avoided All the real goodbyes And we’re not changin’ Cannot go back And try again with our lives Only look back And see how we might retry It’s a hard fact No wishes and no lies Gonna change that Life is this lack Preceding every try And there’s no changin’ Oh oh, Oh oh ho ho Cannot go back No tryin’ again with our lives, ho ho Only look back And see how we might retry, ho ho It’s a hard fact No wishes and no lies Cannot change that Life is this lack Preceding every try And there’s no changin’ Life is this lack Preceding every try And there’s no changin’ Every try There’s no changin’ Every try

Comes and Goes (©2019 Anders/O’Bitz) Oh to see her When the morning comes Once again I fall in love And to find love With every morning comes And we found love as one Oh why it comes so No, don’t ask why it comes and goes Now I need her As my mourning comes Fill the hole left by loss And I hide loss Before the mourning comes Cuz we found love as one Oh why it comes so No, don’t ask why it comes and goes Break Oh to need her When the mourning comes Once again I fall from love And to find love With every morning comes Is to find love as one Oh why it comes so No, don’t ask why it comes and goes Why it comes and goes Why it comes and goes I need her There’s no why it comes and goes It goes

Old Eyes 03:51
Old Eyes (©2019 Anders/O’Bitz) Been around Too long a time And I’ve lived coast to coast And I found love But lost it to time Then a sudden I’m old It’s my eyes they’re too old To ask why must be so Old eyes Don’t ask why Old eyes Oh Been around Too long a time To believe one can know Why it is love Always loses to time And this truth don’t grow old Old eyes Don’t ask why Old eyes Oh (Break) Old eyes Don’t ask why Old eyes Oh Old eyes Don’t ask why Old eyes Oh It’s my eyes they’re too old To ask why must be so

Seen So Much 05:18
Seen So Much (©2019 Anders/O’Bitz) Seen so much before All along my sorrowed way Seen so much I saw a life and lived it I saw some good deeds along the way Saw so much Did not see any warning Did not see what would come my way After all Oh my love Find a way to love your ending Oh my love, I pray Now feel your time, passing And feel your life wane Away I saw a wife and children I saw some good work that barely paid Saw so much Did not see any warning Did not see what would come my way After all Oh my love Find a way to love your ending Oh my love, I pray Now feel your time, passing And feel your life wane Away Break I saw a life worth living I saw my plans get washed away Saw so much Did not see any warning Did not see what would end my days After all Oh my love Find a way to love the ending Oh my love, I pray Now feel your time, passing And feel your life wane Away

about

We went into the studio to record American Bardo with sixteen songs expecting some of them not to proceed past the recording stage. All of them proceeded past the recording stage and so we put all the songs with lyrics directly related to Lincoln in the Bardo on American Bardo (12 songs) and the remaining four were put on this EP, This Mortal Farce.
