"Houdini's Angels" as written by and Jason Ross....
Do you think that people get tired of themselves?
Is that why the T.V.'s on all the time?
It don't take much to get it right back on track,
But it won't fall from the sky right into your lap.

I've made the most of luck.
You get a brand new chance
In a brand new town.
And if I don't read what they wrote about me,
I might turn you on to something I've found:

Silence. Priceless. Silence.
The only way we talk.

What if people get everything they expect?
What becomes of hope?
I'll bet she's a nervous wreck.
What's the genius in a cushion on your couch?
You better find yourself something that drags you out.

I've made the most of love.
You get a brand new chance in a brand new town.
And if I don't hear what they whisper about me,
I might turn you on to something I've found:

Silence. Priceless. Silence.
The only way we talk.

    General CommentI love this song. It's basically just about how we all spend too much time with the noise of our lives turned up too high. I don't have a clue what the title is refering to, though

    General CommentFrom an interview with Jason Ross:

    What is 'Houdini's Angels' about?

    R: 'Houdini's Angels' is a painting that my friend did, which I named. The painting was of 2 angels standing over a man and the reality of it being, the songs is the discussion between Houdini and his angels and he was a good publicist and I wonder why he didn't just get sick of it all and give up.

    In 'Houdini's Angels' you talk of people getting tired of themselves, what's 'a genius in a cushion on your couch?'

    R: You gotta go seek and find knowledge and truth and seek love. You are not gonna find it sitting on your couch watching t.v.
