"Yeah (Sowing Season)" as written by and Vincent Accardi Jesse Lacey....
Was losing all my friends
Was losing them to drinking and to driving
Was losing all my friends, I got them back

I am on the mend
At least now I can say that I'm trying
And I hope you will forget things I still lack
Yeah, yeah

Is it in you now
To bare to hear the truths that you have spoken
Twisted up by knaves in a trap for fools?

Is it in you now
To watch the things you gave your life to broken
Stoop and build them up with worn out tools?

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Nothing gets so bad
A whisper from your father couldn't fix it
Your whispers like a bridge, he's a river span

And take all that you have
And turn it into something you were missing
Somebody threw that brick and shattered all your plans

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Time to get the seeds into the cold ground
Takes a while to grow anything
Before it's coming to an end, yeah

Before you put my body in the cold ground
Take some time and warm it with your hands
Before it's coming to an end, yeah
It's coming to an end

Do you miss the blend
Of colors she left in your black and white field
Do you feel condemned just being there?

I am not your friend
I am just a man who knows how it feels
I am not your friend
I'm not your lover, I'm not your family

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Time to get the seeds into the cold ground
Takes a while to grow anything
Before it's coming to an end, yeah

    General CommentJust some changes I thought should be made:

    But HE loved HIS wife
    HE LOVED HER AND WAS faithful to her always
    Buried both the kids in the summer sun

    Praying for HIS life
    Huddled in the brig all with the shipmates
    Praying for HIS life and I dropped the bomb

    What you waiting for?
    Searching for YOUR brother
    In an empty room across the hall
    Is he coming back?

    Listening at night
    Waiting for a SOUND to come up the stairs
    Listening at night for the sound of a car PAKING, YEAH

    Summer skin
    Found another lover
    Tell him straight, TELL HIM ON THE PHONELINE (?) again

    Tying both your shoes and
    Looking 'CROSS the ocean for the signal
    Waiting for a body in an open box

    They don't send you letters
    They don't telephone your INNOCENT SELF (?)
    They don't send you letters
    But you're waiting for THEM TO WRITE HIM, YEAH

    Probably my favorite song out of the demos.

    General CommentThe end has been bothering me the whole summer...

    I think it may be
    "waiting for a body
    and an open line"
    Whatever it is, I don't her box, and "line" makes more sense all the talk of calling.

    instead of "need to know what it feels like again"
    i hear "then you'll know it feels right again"

    And afterwards I don't think its "call him up again"
    It sounds something along the lines of "Coming to an end" i think....


    alright then the last line he mutters something that sounds along the lines of "some are not as _____" has an "in" sound to it. Which kind of reminds me of Not the Sun where insted of "not the sun", he says "will not listen" but its really hard to discern. I think maybe its not Summer skin after the first time but maybe "some are...."

    I don't know I wish we could just get a transcript, i've been wrestling with these forever

    General CommentLosing all my friends
    Losing them to drinking and to driving
    Losing all my friends
    I want it back

    (perhaps this is self explanitory)

    Slipping out the back
    Did you really think we wouldn�t notice?
    Slipping out the back
    In the pouring rain

    (I think maybe it was necessary to leave home without parental permission)

    Yeah
    Yeah

    But you loved your wife
    You were always faithful to her always
    Buried both the kids
    In the summer sun

    (the parents, maybe, lost more than one child to the military?)

    Praying for this life
    Huddled in the brig all with the shipmates
    Praying for this life
    And I dropped the bomb

    (I believe this is CENTRAL to this song.... I believe that like in "Untitled 02 (Brother)" his brother joined the military (Navy, most likely) Hence "praying for his life, huddled in the brig all withh shipmates")

    Yeah
    Yeah
    Yeah
    Yeah, yeah

    What you waiting for
    Searching for his brother
    In an empty room across the hall
    Is he coming back

    (obviously he still wants to walk into his brother's room and find him there. nd wonders if he will see him alive again...)

    Listening at night
    Waiting for a sound to come up the stairs
    Listening at night
    Waiting for the sound of the car park

    (anyone who has ever lost a family member to the service of their country should understand this.... waiting for the serviceman and chaplain to come to the door with a terrible letter.... )

    Yeah
    Yeah
    Yeah
    Yeah, yeah

    Call him up this summer
    On the phone
    Need to know what it feels like again

    Summer skin
    Found another lover
    Tell him straight, call him up again

    I'll call him up again, yeah
    Call him up again

    Tying both your shoes and
    Looking past the ocean for the signal
    Waiting for a body
    In a open box

    (again, fairly self explanitory)

    They don't send you letters
    They don't telephone you and they don't send
    They don't send you letters
    But you're waiting for them
    You write him, yeah

    Yeah
    Yeah
    Yeah
    Yeah, yeah
    Yeah

    Call him up this summer
    On the phone
    Need to know what it feels like again

    I'll call him up again

    Call him up this summer
    On the phone
    Need to know what it feels like again

    (this song says so much to me, and it's definately one of my favorites.... I know we all hear what we want to hear in the lyrics of songs, but this one and untitled 02 really speak volumes to me, though I have not lost my brother, I can not imagine what it would do to me if ever I did... I don't know Jesse's story, or if he even had a brother in the service, but that's what I hear... thanks)

    General CommentThe second verse begins "Leo loved his wife..."

    In the liner notes to The Devil and God there is a dedication to a number of people who passed away during the making of the album, one of whom is Leo Lacey. I'm assuming this is Jesse's grandfather or another older relative, and that the line that goes "huddled in the brig all with his shipmates, praying for his life when they dropped the bomb" is a reference to WWII. A quick Google search confirms that a Leo Lacey who spent his life around the NJ/NYC/Long Island area did indeed serve in the Pacific Theater during WWII.

    That might give some insight as to the meaning of the song.

    General CommentIt's most likely
    "Buried both her kids" not 'bout
    Everyone's quality of this song sounds around the quality of Car right, of all the demos this seems the most demoy, to make up a word

    General CommentLosing friends to drinking and driving....

    Is this an alusion to the line "have another drink and crive your self home" from 7 X 70

    I think this song is talking about loosing his friend and rebuilding the realtionship. Also doesn't he talk about his friends brother in another song off that cd? And I think its the same brother mentioned here.

    General CommentIt's not an alusion to Seventy Times 7 in which Jesse told John Nolan to go and die. Sorry.

    General Commentno. def nothin to do with 70x7, to me it sounds like a kid sneakin out and worrying his parents to death.
    Jesse must really love the water ocean etc. Maritime stuff all over his lyrics. Also corrections
    It's "searching "for his brother in an empty room across the hall"
    I think it's "Found another lover tellem straight, call him up again." might not be it but ur def missin a few words.
    I also think it might be "or an open wound" not open box although i think i like box it just dont sound like box to me

    General Commentnot a bad song
    still, i dont think this one should end up on the new album.
    what are the rumors so far?
    are all these songs meant to end up on the new cd?
    are there more ?
