about

The Boxcar Suite Dayton, Ohio

Cosmic American power pop for the Age of Aquarius. Further In and Farther Out holds true to the song-oriented approach common to Tim Pritchard’s previous work, and generally indicative of admiration for writers such as Gram Parsons or Gene Clark, but turns sonic favor toward 70s stadium heroics and 90s power pop revivalism. ... more

Track Name: Ghost Drugs
Heaven paid me a heavy compliment
Singin’ you deserve all that you’ve been sent
So we’re sending you back to the world for a little while

And as it turns out, I died as a child
I never grew up, I’ve always stayed wild
Never shed my wings or succumb to the weight of denial

As old as the stars and young as the dirt
I know this gets deep and I know it must hurt
So drink up and smoke down because it ain’t gonna get
Any better or worse, I ain’t saying we’re cursed

But this is ghost love that we’re makin’
Ghost drugs that I’m takin’
This is ghost rock and roll
So what does that say about you?

It’s a long road but I’ll make it
Look alive son
I’ll try and fake it
I’ll play that ghost rock and roll until forever is through

Well here’s a story about the living dead
Jesus Christ still had some blood to shed
At the pearly gates Saint Peter said
You can’t stay here boy, go back to earth instead
Track Name: Living to Infinity
Here beneath the fire fountain, flowers on the wall
Further in and farther out we fall
Floating at unprecedented heights above the land
There you are and here I am

Come on, let’s shoot the moon
The queen, her heart, the burning in her nether
We are tethered, we are free
To float along out here, at last, forever

My rider, my queen
The stars align and guide us here where we’re living to infinity
Track Name: Romance In the Role
We baptized Mother Nature’s Son in a pool of her own blood
Drew straws for the timber rights and wrote a novel about what it was

You can dance if you want it, dance if you want it
Come on, gimme me your soul
I’ll give you something to fill the hole
Romance in the role

Now lazy days on the promenade are drenched in champagne
Electric boogie lights and depraved games with the maids

If you want a taste of the sweet life, better put on your old soft shoes
Let the sand man strike up the band and show him what you can do
Track Name: The Power
Not all has been lost or squandered in vain
Not every door been open to the rain
But I’d be lyin’ to you if I denied these blues
Or tried to lose the noose around my neck

We’re going down, down, down and out of it
Too damn proud to quit
I gave too much away, it ain’t no reason to celebrate
Still, let’s drink up and forget it

Is there a place where we could go and live out a quiet hour?
I’d give it all away if I had anything left or if I had the power

Coffee, wine, moon and sun
Shake, stagger, then I’m done
Homespun, nothing but love in oblivion
We’re out on the roof callin’ cuckoo
Well I’d never lie to you
I’d bare it all and barely even make it through
Track Name: Fix My Head
I get a broader view when I fix my head
Gotta get out of bed and take the pledge
Do what the Lord said
Go out and raise the dead
Gotta fix my head, gotta fix my head

It’s just the very thought of you that makes me want to try
To get out of bed or take the pledge
Don’t break, I know you’re cryin’ over everything
Darlin’ there ain’t no denying
But still, you should think about it

Think
Is this even real?
So much of what we see is just an artifice
You and I we shouldn’t be a part of this
Not even pretend
I can bend my mind to feel better
Patch holes in the roof when it’s raining
Gotta fix my head, gotta fix my head

We get along, sing along
Rise up when we must
It’s a long road to trust
Gotta take the pledge
To get out of bed
Make sure the sheep get fed
At least that’s what they said,
“Ya better fix your head”

I know this to be true
Read it in a book
Saw it on a screen somewhere, somehow
Hold on, it ain’t over or even yet begun
I saw it in the sun and she said
“You should think about it”
Track Name: Time Machine
All nine lives been pissin’ in the wind
Call this a resurrection and we’ll do it again
Time moves fast and I’m a fiend
We can get our fix up in my time machine

If the heavy hand won’t let you win
Or the bastards stole your innocence
If you’ve got a mind to make a scene
We can give ‘em the stick up in my time machine

Move your body and you move my body
Over and over again
Day after day it never ends


Come on hop inside
Let me take you for a ride
You’ll have all you ever want of my attention
Space and time collide
The echo and the tide
We’ll connect the dots with this invention

Do the rainbows make it feel like a dream
With cigarettes, makeup, magazines?
Shot my load and called you my sunbeam
We can do it again up in my time machine
Track Name: Never Say Anything
Radio this in
‘Cause I know you’re listenin’
And I’ve learned to dance in the gaze of your eyes
Fix you a drink and settle to thinkin’
Well I’m much obliged to get off or get high

Nothing you need or were taught to believe
Will grace our communion or suffice your mind
I hope you’re sharin’
The beggars are barren and holding their glass for a taste of your wine

Live to regret it?
I doubt it, I love it
I’ll preach ‘til I’m parched and my cup runneth dry
Follow the leader, conceive her, deceive her
Her wrath tastes like that of your own humble pie

Knowledge has shaken the very foundation
A spittin’ image of the stories we write
Truth quite becomin’
We all yearn for buzzin’
And breaking the edict ‘cause there’s no end in sight
Track Name: Divine Arrows
Anywhere that you would want me to be
I could be there in a hurry love, call me
Anything that you would want me to say
I’ve said it all already anyway

‘Cause I’ve got a feeling that we’re already there
Where?
Anywhere

I don’t mind those other guys your chillin’ with
Got a few of my good time girls as well
And if they ever need me
We’ll be there in a hurry love, won’t we?

We go wayward, backward, onward, forward
Wait!
One thing…
Any day, every day, you better not be hasty
Track Name: Lighter Song
Hey, hallelujah, come on
Climb the ladder to the sky at dawn
Be the dreamer, the sage and the seer
For all the people tryin’ to find a light here

Way down among the shadowlands
In the grip of heavy hands
We burnt the manifesto of doubt and fear
For all the people tryin’ to find a light here

Still someday it will all become clear
For all the people tryin’ to find a light here
Track Name: Hard to Deliver
I walk through miles and miles on the streets of this town
Through fields of grain and across the outbound
Kick rocks off the bridge, I know I’m lettin’ you down
Time gives me the shivers

Whenever I pass that old place I regress
Into childish ways, do things I regret
Like every mistake wears the same prom dress to bed
With whomever

Go it alone
Sink like a stone before it’s been thrown
God, I’ve got an alibi
The devil’s on my right hand side
Goddamn this place, goddamn my pride
Someday I’ll flow like a river

I’ve got letters full of compliments
A few of my own, I ain’t never sent
Somebody out there is probably getting’ bent
It’s been hard to deliver

When the chariot comes to take me away
Somebody will have to break these shackles and chains
That keep me bound to earthly pleasures and pain
It’s been hard to get severed

Someday I’ll be clever
And I’ll flow like a river
