    Includes unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

    Complicated marketing considerations: I absolutely think my music is worth paying for, which is why there is a price for downloading the whole album (Bandcamp likes this, too). BUT if you can't afford to pay for music -- or don't want to for whatever other reasons (hey, it's none of my business) -- every song can be downloaded individually for free. I'd rather you have the music than not have it, if you want it.

All songs by Russ Miller, who also sang. played the instruments, plugged in the microphones, watched the blinky lights, did the dishes, and took out the trash.

Track Name: Unexpected
How could I know
At my window
Where the wind blows
That's where she goes

Waiting near me
Not to hear me
Not to take care
Just to be there
Track Name: Fallen Birds
No one is an island
But someone is at sea
Standing, he can touch the ground
And he looks around

Way up in the sky above
Floating rafts of stars
Whisper as they sail away
And I can say goodbye

The fallen birds have lost their nerve
I hear them as they cry
I'm with you now
Here with you now
Someday we will fly

Soaring through the clouds again
Laying on the grass
Speeding through the Milky Way
As it rolls away in the dark

Sit in my hand
Sleep to my voice
This will not help you at all

Someone is afraid of you
I am like the dawn
Flashing while you sleep away
In the light of day I'm gone
Track Name: There Must Be Some Mistake
Now comes the night of secrets
And in the morning we are two
Strangers, but there must be some mistake
There must be some mistake

The mask that I was wearing
No longer fits me and I feel
Lonely as the wind across the plain
Searching for the rain

With every question
I fade away a little more
And you can watch
Or turn away
As it suits you
Still, I fade

And in the afternoon I
Will chase the sun across the floor
Trapped in shadow
Silent as the dust
Blowing where I must
Track Name: I'm Still Here
I'm all right
Feeling fine
Coming to
Sifting through
Grain by grain
I can't explain
What I fear

Things align
Things disperse
My decline
Could be worse
Stone by stone
My great unknown
I'm still here
Track Name: Winter Song
When you fall awake
Please remember me
If I start to shake
Soothe me tenderly
It's not hard to fake
And I would gladly take the gift

Out there in the street
Snow is falling
It's all the same to me
I came calling
Because I had to see
If you could shelter me

Too much to ask
Of anyone

What did I expect?
Nothing more than this
Something indirect
Your uncertain kiss
As I peel away my skin
That's no way to begin

I give up everything
Something no one wants
Track Name: Fanfare for the Broken Dam/My Home
I live in a city surrounded by trees
But it might be a desert
With the drunks and the junkies
All turning their faces away from the wind
Nobody comes from this place
But some of us never will leave here
It's a beautiful city
A beautiful life
But I wish I was home

There's no way to get there
Where is my home?

The place that has died has a place in my mind
And I'm tempted to stay there
I may be living there more than I am aware
Comes a time when my mind will burn down
Like the city that died long ago
And after I'm gone there'll be nothing at all

All the fine desolation reminds me of loneliness
Bought with my freedom
So I live like a king
But I want to go home
Track Name: She Waited
She waited a long, long time
She waited a long, long time
What does it matter?
She had her reasons
I hear her voice and I turn

She went to the riverside
She went looking for things that fly
But when they saw her
They fell from the sky
She could not shed a tear

She did what she wanted to
Just as we all must do
If you tried to prevent her
She knew a secret
All roads lead away from here
Track Name: I Fall
When I fell asleep
I dreamed that I was sleeping
I did not awake
For a thousand years
Nothing much had changed

I fall
Right through it all
Looking up at the sky

Everywhere I go
Someone's already there
Such a strange Idea
It seems to me
We should start again

I would like to hold you
If I were made of flesh
But I am just an inkling
A firefly
Blinking in the dark
