Bloodshot & Blistered Look out the window It’s snowing again Look out the window It’s snowing again Bloodshot and blistered The work is never done Bloodshot and blistered The work is never done oohoohoohooh Tired of tired Tired of you Tired of tired Tired of you Pick up the pieces You’re dragging again Pick up the pieces You’re dragging oohoohoohooh Look out the window It’s snowing again Look out the window It’s snowing

In Comes The Light I want to feel like your love is enough I want to feel like your love is enough I want to feel Someone once said that love’s all you need Someone once said that love’s all you need I don’t believe I want to fall like the leaves from the trees I want to fall like the leaves from the trees I want to fall Someone once said you can’t have it all Someone once said you can’t have it all I don’t believe In comes the light of the day to my eye In comes the light of the day to my eye I want the night

From Below 03:27
From Below I remember what I heard All the dirty looks All the dirty words Down from below I crawled inside my head Shut out all the lights Now I don’t see But I remember what I heard The shots rang out Something from below Came ragging in Oohoohooh I crawled inside the can It drank me down again Now I don’t see Blind Must be blind If I don’t see Blind Must be blind If I don’t see In front of me Blind Must be blind If I don’t see

Message Delivered We won’t do it We won’t undo it We’ll hold on to it Send the army Load the cannon Fire the guns You and I Won’t go kneeling In the fire We’re still breathing Bombs exploding Walls crumbling Hold on Someone whispered Message delivered Get out You and I Won’t go kneeling In the fire We’re still breathing We will fight With cold from the ice Rain from our eyes Luck from the dice Roll on A marching band we don’t need It’s our land we can seed Hold on
5.
Rage In A Cage I have given I am gone I’m in prison I was wrong I have given I am gone I am gone but not forgotten I am old but I’m not rotten to the core Through the window I was watching Through the wind I heard them talking in their rhyme Through the backyard I was running Through the back I felt them gunning down my spine Some will tell you I had reason Broke the silence now the season has turned cold In my rage I did riot In this cage I sit quiet getting old I have given I am gone I’m in prison I was wrong I have given I am gone I am gone but not forgotten I am old but I’m not rotten to the core
6.
Carved In Sand Here I stand A sinner and a saint Carved in sand A lover filled with hate Watch the fire rise in the rain Lost in space Running on the ground Miscalculate Bury what is found Watch tomorrow fall today The flowers bloom When the air is frozen By the light of the moon
7.
Rip Out The Moon Cut off my tongue Burn out my eyes Steal my breath Drink my blood Rip out my heart Home sweet home Cut down the trees Burn out the sun Steal the wind Drink the rain Rip out the moon Home sweet home Home sweet home Home sweet home Home sweet home
8.
Upon A Time 02:15
Upon A Time Once I was in love With someone from above Above the clouds Beneath the stars Beyond the sun Once I walked the line One step behind Behind the eyes Beneath the skin Upon the tongue Once I heard a ghost Speak words that matter most Most of us ignore What we all assume Once I wanted more From someone I adore A door pushed open Into an empty room Once I had a gun Pointed at the one The one, the only Me, myself and I Once I had a heart Broken apart A part taken And lost to the sky
9.
Dig You A Grave When the hours give away to the day You belong to the night When your eyes give away what your face Is trying to hide They’ll know They’ll take you away Dig you a grave And they’ll put you back into the ground They’ll put you back into the ground When the stars disappear into dust You belong to the sky When the words disappear from the truth You are trying to find They’ll know They’ll take you away Dig you a grave And they’ll put you back into the ground They’ll put you back into the ground They’ll put you back into the ground You’ll run, you’ll escape They’ll chase and they’ll find you in time There’s a place you’ll be safe In the back, way back in your mind
10.
Crossfire 02:46
Crossfire Caught in the crossfire Held on to barbed wire Then I cut myself and had to let it go Out on the highway Should I go should I stay Frozen in the hour of our time If you had been grateful If I had been faithful If we had been awake In some ways I’m over In some ways I’m under But always up above you hang around

about

"Maki's delicate, fading voice joins instrumentation that is lazy and grand, like people in a slow dance on a very hot day. She sounds confident and in control, lost voice be damned, and makes what may be her best album to date." - OTTAWA CITIZEN

"There's more to Maki's country-folk than meets the ear. Her voice carries hidden hurt and menace; an old-soul wise beyond her years even if she were decades older." - MONTREAL GAZETTE

Recorded and mixed in Tucson, Arizona on April 14 and 15, 2008 at the influential WaveLab Studio with members of Giant Sand, Jonathan
Richman, Arcade Fire, and Calexico, TWO SONG WEDDING is Kate Maki's fourth solo record. It is an introverted assortment of songs with an overall spaciousness and sincerity that progresses like the soundtrack to a short film or theatrical performance. Unforeseen circumstances (Kate's voice gradually disappeared), unfamiliar elements (95 degree desert heat), unusual surroundings, and unconventional musicians all played a part in the creation of this striking, captivating, unclassifiable record.
