Lyrics

Touch of Outlaw 
(Dalson/Kelley 2016) 
Verse 1 
You never gave up the bike, 
the cigarettes or whiskey, 
you’re precise in what you like, 
and it needs to be risky. 

Chorus 
My man needs a touch of outlaw. 
Time becomes the real buzz saw, 
but can’t force the glint in his eyes to thaw. 
He’s not older, he’s an outlaw. 

Verse 2 
I’ll be with you on that bike, 
drinking, smoking, I’m right there, 
even if the worse should strike, 
I will always be right there. 

Chorus 
My man needs a touch of outlaw. 
Time becomes the real buzz saw, 
but can’t force the glint in his eyes to thaw. 
He’s not older, he’s an outlaw. 

Instrumental 

Bridge 
Ohhhh, we’re going to ride on. 
Ohhhh, don’t care where we’ve been. 
Ohhhh, we’re going to ride on. 
Don’t know the meaning of sin. 

Chorus 
My man needs a touch of outlaw. 
Time becomes the real buzz saw, 
but can’t force the glint in his eyes to thaw. 
He’s not older, he’s an outlaw.

One More Crime
(Shields/Kelley 2016)

Verse 1
Turn off the lights,
Come back to my bed,
I know it’s not right.
Hold me instead . . .
One more time,

Verse 2
One more crime.
Hear my soul cry,
Make me believe
All those lies . . .
for one more crime,
Share my dreams,
when the night get cold,
Comfort me,

Chorus
Don’t say goodbye
‘Till the morning.
Forget about leaving,
I need holdin’

Instrumental

Verse 3
One more crime,
Before you go,
One more thing
I need to know,
Why can’t you love me?
One more time,
to say goodbye to me,
would be the real crime.

Chorus
Don’t say goodbye
‘Till the morning.
Forget about leaving,
I need holdin’

Don’t say goodbye
‘Till the morning.
Forget about leaving,
I need holdin’

Salem’s Shot – Peter Salem – Poem by Ward Kelley

Artist’s note: A monument, in 1882, was placed over the grave of Peter Salem, a free black man who fought at the battle of Bunker Hill. On June 17, 1775, at a crucial moment in the battle, British Major John Pitcairn attempted to rally his men with the cry, “The day is ours!” when Salem, a former slave, shot him through the head.

Temple in the Path of Xerxes Lyrics

The song is set in 5th century BCE Greece, where a landowner learns the Persian invader Xerxes is nearing his property with a large, murderous army. He quickly sends his wife, children, brother and slaves to the safety of the shore, and resolves to make a suicidal stand with his small guard of mercenaries. The night before the battle, he stands, during a thunderstorm, in the small temple he built on his property, contemplating his gods – why does a man decide to stand and fight, when the very gods have fled this place?

Dancing in Front of the Glacier Poem

If anything, the dead ones remain quite
persistent, or maybe always keen,
to arrive at something succinct—
the word, the precise phrase, the cajoling—
producing the correct apprehension.

Election Song 2016

With Anastasia’s deep roots in Indiana, we wanted to write a song about the Midwestern state, and while thinking about all the images to describe Indiana – the farmlands, rural towns, basketball, industrialized cities – one overarching thing became clear. There is a powerful, nearly overwhelming, love of country here in the heartland, transcending all else. A quick look at the news, and the verses nearly wrote themselves.

Thou Has Nor Youth Nor Age Poem S. Eliot (1888-1965)

S. Eliot (1888-1965) was arguably the most influential poet of the 20th century. Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Eliot was educated at Harvard, but then moved to England where he became a British citizen in 1927. Best known for his poems “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock,” and “The Waste Land,” Eliot was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1948. According to Eliot’s instructions, his tomb was engraved with the phrase, “in the beginning is my end, in the end is my beginning.” The title of the above poem was taken from the dedication to his poem “Gerontion.”

Daughters Song by Don Whitaker

This song is a rendition of a father’s love for his daughters. Every father of an adult daughter – at some point – gets a phone call late at night from the daughter who got herself in a bad situation, and desperately needs the father to come help her. The father in the song runs to his truck and drives into the night to help his daughter, thinking about his relationship with her, and concluding ‘there is nothing better than a daughter.’
