ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Wait . . . Dad?
Music and Lyrics By Joshua Macrae
Recorded in house and at UpRock Studios
Danger In Butterflies
Produced by John Glover
Engineered by Stephen Mentze.
Mixed by Randy Sundstedt
Choir: Angelica Niblock, Hilary Hodge, Joann Macrae,
Joshua Macrae, and Johnny Niblock.
If there is light, then there is a place,
There’s a place for dark to shine
If there is fear, then there is a way
There’s a way to make it mine
And if there is sound
I won’t be afraid to
Tremble and close my eyes
If there is danger, then there’s danger in butterflies


Follow Me:
Produced and Mixed by John Glover
Engineered by Stephen Mentze and John Glover.
Uke: Joshua Macrae, Drums: Stephen Mentze, Guitars/FX John Glover.
Choir: Angelica Niblock, Hilary Hodge, Joann Macrae,
Joshua Macrae, and Johnny Niblock.

You said “In a minute”
But I want half that time
You said “Now you did it”
But you know what’s your’s is mine
If you say “Yes”, then I’ll say “Go”
It’s lift me up, before I know it
Push me higher, faster, I can’t breathe, Follow Me
You said “Its time for changing”
But I just run and hide
No point in rearranging till we’re down this slide
If you say “Yes”, then I’ll say “Go”
It’s lift me up, before I know it
Push me higher, faster, I can’t breathe, Follow Me
I know that demon time is right above your shoulder
There’s not a moment with which we’re not getting older
But may I please?
No . . . Will you please, Follow Me


Lie to You:
Produced By John Glover and Stephen Mentze. Mixed by Randy Sundsetdt.
Engineered by Stephen Mentzte and John Glover.
Guitar and Vocals Joshua Macrae. Lead Guitar and FX by Stephen Mentze.
Cello by Elise Richardson.
Of course I missed you
You didn’t leave, you disappeared
And I was left with nothing but a smell trapped in a pillow
But it doesn’t matter to me
Where you went or what you did
Its all in the past now
As if nothing ever happened
But when you walked in
And asked me how I’d been
It’s too much to forgive
I’m gonna lie to you
And tell you all about things I’ve never done
I’m gonna lie to you
And make you think that this emptiness is gone
I’m gonna lie to you
Of course I missed you
But you won’t see it till I turn away
And you won’t feel it
Till I turn and call another’s name
And another day
When I’ve gone away
You will feel the pinch
I’m gonna lie to you
And tell you all about things I’ve never done
I’m gonna lie to you
And make you think that this emptiness is gone
I’m gonna lie to you
Something broke between us
Something always does
If you’d only seen us
I wish it never was
And who am I to forget
The moment that you went away
And now I really think
I’m gonna lie to you
And tell you all about things I’ve never done
I’m gonna lie to you
And make you think that this emptiness is gone
I’m gonna lie to you


Gotta Say No
Produced and Mixed by John Glover
Vocals Joshua Macrae and Choir. Guitars John Glover and Joshua Macrae.
Drums Stephen Mentze.
Choir: Angelica Niblock, Hilary Hodge, Joann Macrae,
Joshua Macrae, and Johnny Niblock.

I know there’s something I want, but I don’t know what
I know there’s something I need, but it’s not what I want
I see your impatient eyes, that lower octave never lies
I’ve pushed you past the point, you should stop and take a breath
I know there’s some thing I want, but it’s not in sight
I see that thing in your hands, but it don’t feel right
Maybe you should put aside that feeling that you should decided
I’ve gotta make the most of this moment while I can
Cause I have got to say, I have gotta say, I have got to say, I gotta say no to you now.
I know there’s something I want, but I don’t know what
I’m gonna find it myself if you just let up
Let me think the choice is mine, yes, I am aware of time
Where we go is not enough to make me who I am
Cause I have got to say, I have gotta say, I have got to say, I gotta say no to you now.
I have got to take my chances
Irregard of circumstances
Everyone has to say no to someone sometimes.
Cause I have got to say, I have gotta say, I have got to say, I gotta say no to you now.


When Will the World Explode?
Produced by Stephen Mentze.
Mixed by Randy Sundstadt
Vocals and Guitars Joshua Macrae. Lead guitars, Bass and FX Stephen Mentze.

What’s that sign say? What’s it say?
Is that really what it says?
“Caution” means be careful boy
“Warning” means you might be dead.
What is stronger than . . . .?
What is faster than . . . . ?
Are there faces I can’t see
Or is it much too loud for me
I think you made a mistake
When you said “Everything will break”
Break the water then
Go and break the water then
When is it my day, do these hands feel cold?
What did you say? No, you can’t not know.
When will the world explode?
Is it passed my bedtime yet
Will you read me one or two
When and if tomorrow comes
What exactly will we do
Will we break the water then?
Will we break the water then?
When is it my day, do these hands feel cold?
What did you say? No, you can’t not know.
When will the world explode



Touch Her She’s Gone:
Produced by John Glover and Stephen Mentze.
Mixed by Randy Sundstedt.
Vocals and Piano Joshua Macrae.
Drums and FX By Stephen Mentze. Guitars John Glover.
Touch her she’s gone
Off to a fantasy
I see nothing wrong
Let the girl lay
Are you awake?
Please want to touch me
I see only space where bodies once were
So sleep now
And maybe just maybe I’m part of this dream
Sleep now and let all you fantasies fill this space . . .
Touch her she’s gone
Maybe the moon’s to blame
Or maybe it’s me
And I’ve lost who I am
But could that be
Then man that you’ve made me
Is not who you see when you close your eyes
So sleep now
And maybe just maybe I’m part of this dream
Sleep now and let all you fantasies fill this space . . .
Touch her she’s gone, touch her she’s gone
Just for a moment if only a moment
Touch her she’s gone, touch her she’s gone
Just for a moment if only a moment
So sleep now
And maybe just maybe I’m part of this dream
Sleep now and let all you fantasies fill this space . . .


Forever After On My Own:
Produced by Stephen Mentze
Mixed by Randy Sundstedt
Vocals Joann Macrae. Guitars and Vocals Joshua Macrae.
Piano and Bass by Stephen Mentze.
I can’t go, without you, going with me
I can’t go, without you, standing near me
Then all at once, I am free
All at once, let me be
I know that I’ll never have the courage
I know that’ll you’ll never let me fall
Feel my fear, make me roam
Let me fall, be my home
Once with you, and once near you, and then,
Forever after on my own,
Two feet, is all I need, to stand
Forever after on my own.
I know that I’ll never be the brave one.
I know that I’ll never slay the dragon.
It seems to me, it’s okay
Let me be, say you’ll stay
Once with you, and once near you, and then,
Forever after on my own,
Two feet, is all I need, to stand
Forever after on my own.
Only Hope:
Produced and Mixed by John Glover
Vocals and Piano Joshua Macrae. Guitars and FX by John Glover.
Choir: Angelica Niblock, Hilary Hodge, Joann Macrae,
Joshua Macrae, and Johnny Niblock.


Only hope draws a solid line
I can see why you would need to dance for better days
Pray for the rain to come, hold out your wishing hand
I can see the need for silent resign
But I’m not a photograph or a current dilemma
And I’ve no intention of walking this line
Don’t play too loud, don’t stand so close
I need more light than your shadow can provide
Go dream your dreams, leave me my own
Let them be right, no matter where they hide.
Looking ahead, there’s cracks in the pavement
I can see why you would need to dance another way
Looking again, I see you bedside me
I can see the need for further advice
But I’m not as malleable, nor as easily folded
I’ll be as different as this circus allows
Don’t play too loud, don’t stand so close
I need more light than your shadow can provide
Go dream your dreams, leave me my own
Let them be right, no matter where they hide.
Can’t Stop Cryin:
Produced by Joshua Macrae
Mixed by Randy Sundstedt
Vocals, Uke and Keyboards Joshua Macrae.
Choir: Angelica Niblock, Hilary Hodge, Joann Macrae,
Joshua Macrae, and Johnny Niblock.
Bass and Drums Stephen Mentze.
Guitars where, not in real life, done by John Glover, but by his evil twin.
Here we go again
not exactly what I had intended
every now and then
All I want is what I had pretended
But my usual response is none too shy
And theres no defense other than I don’t know why
I don’t know why I can’t stop cryin’
Here we go again
Little Lizzy’s off her medication
What’s it to you then
Pick me up and drop me at the station
You can only hold me so close until I’m dry
And if that don’t work this mocking bird will cry
I don’t know why I can’t stop crying.



Quiet Amy:
Produced and Mixed by John Glover
Vocals and Piano by Joshua Macrae. Guitars and FX by John Glover.
All eyes are blind when the dark descends
All life defined by the things we won’t transcend
Quiet Amy, Quiet Amy now.
No answer yet, but the reasons oh so clear
She has to get louder every year
Quiet Amy, quiet Amy now
You and I
Little Lie
Give me a bit and I will give you the most
You and I
Breathe in time
Open your eyes and I’ll disable the ghost
When will you play?
I won’t go too far
I’ve lost my way
and I don’t know where you are
Quiet Amy
Quiet Amy now
You and I
Little Lie
Give me a bit and I will give you the most
You and I
Breathe in time
Open your eyes and I’ll disable the ghost



Disable the Ghost:
Produced by John Glover
Mixed by Randy Sundstedt
Guitar and Vocals Joshua Macrae. Bass Stephen Mentze. Lead Guitar John Glover.
Although this song is the same as Quiet Amy, the intent of the song is quite different.



Sit By Me:
Produced by Joshua Macrae
Mixed by Randy Sundstadt
Piano, Guitar, Vocal and FX by Joshua Macrae
I know you’ve had enough for today
Its time for the rain to fall
there’s nothing that I need you to say
Nothing at all
But there’s an empty space beside me
and a pillow for your neck
So peel off those clothes, that’s right
Go and kill the kitchen light
Offer up the least that you can be
Come sit by me
I know you’ve had enough for today
Its time that the shades were drawn
There’s nothing that I need you to say
and there is nothing going on
But there’s an empty space beside me
and a table for your feet
ease into a light repose
It’s not what you might suppose
There’s no need for the man you’d hope to be
Come sit by me.
Yes, I’ve asked enough
For a life time of love
But who else could I have turned to
and who else could relieve you now?
I know you’ve had enough for today
Its time for the rain to fall
there’s nothing that I need you to say
Nothing at all
But there’s an empty space beside me
and a pillow for your neck
So peel off those clothes, that’s right
Go and kill the kitchen light
Offer up the least that you can be
I know you’ve had enough for today
Come sit by me
