Michael and Jen try out a new arrangement at their Loopers' Night residency (First Thursdays at Strange Brew Loungeside, Austin, Texas). This song is dedicated to Donna Merrill and Terence McKenna, because nothing lasts but nothing's lost.


Nothing ever goes away, really
It only ever changes shape.
Innumerable masks and shades peeling
off your only lover's face.
We grieve and overcome the late
weeping, stranded in an elder age
but everything has been exchanged
sealing the gone in all that still remains...
We have traded blood and even if you die
no flood can wash away the sky.
In the cold and mud we're left asking why
but love will only answer, "I AM"
We lean on battered hearts and faint
weakened, wounded for the want of taste
but nothing ever leaves or stays, here
cuz Heaven permeates all space...
