    This is a 2 track recording of the song Ordinary Boys. This song inspired the record, but in the end I couldn't get a version that I felt good about. This is just me banging out on the acoustic with a goodwill air organ in the background.

lyrics

These houses were my students
I watched you divide them into Ordinary Boys
across my fine lines

And wielding an enormous handkerchief
at dreams of blue walls from my tears
I'm losing your mind
I'm losing your mind

Oh anything? Is there something you possibly want?
My everything?
Ask your ghost if she's seen it, I've not.
I know nothing in your lap
my hair turns to grey
and the specters of happiness just burn away in your eyes

I followed her into the looking glass
and watched her disappear into herself
and it blew my mind
Her nails stung like pure regret
I even questioned my own face yesterday
and it blew my mind
it blew my mind

Oh anything? Is there something you possibly want?
My everything?
Ask your ghost if she's seen it, I've not.
I'm writing emails with old maids for 8 hours a day
and like the addresses my name is now lowercase in your eyes
