lyrics

Music and fireflies are two things I hold dear
But I can't remember what time or what year
Shadows so close by my feet
Stretch hauntingly into the street

Where I go they follow me longingly, longingly

Daily engaging the cracks on the wall
(I cannot count them all)
Feeling confused as I try to recall
(Is my name Paul? Is it Paul?)
Patterns enhance my dementia
(11, 22, 33, 44)
Masking a genuine lack of attention
(Observing the pretty lights)

Open your eyes! Open your eyes!
And Look at the balloons
Now what?

People all around me, the train conductor calling,
"27 more stops to go!"
Then I thought about my destination
And then I though about my destination

Where I go they follow me longingly, longingly

"Sorry sir, but this is the end of the line"
Orange juice with my bacon and eggs would be fine
Are you from German?
Then from the corner of my eye
Are you from German?
Horseshoes is a really fun game
Now what?

Look at the balloons
Now what?

Hours are passing
(Wears it away wears it away wears it away)
The sun fades to gray
What do I think that I might do today?
(But I can't remember what time or what year)
Then melodies arise in the distance
And fireflies begin to dance with persistence

Open your eyes! Open your eyes!
And look at the balloons
Now what?

Ice Cream Vendors Westmont

The Ice Cream Vendors (ICV), made up of longtime pals Jon Kostal and Greg Barnett, is not just a musical duo but a mysterious life force. Those familiar with Jon and Greg know that boy meets girl lyrics and verse/verse/chorus clichés are simply not in their genetic makeup. Defying classification, ICV examines its subjects through a sometimes-surreal lens, but always with fondness and curiosity. ... more
