He was arrested trying to sneak canned beer into the Jolly Foxx The police gathered, their lights beating a tattoo one his retinas Forty years of broken bottles smiled up at him from the gravel The Walker County Bar Association trickled out in silence, nobody wanting to miss a moment A small motorcycle club was present, if disinterested Mounting a prowl car, he threw wide his arms And began with a benediction: We're living in zero gravity The silence that played over the stunned crowd told him all he needed to know Success, once a pipe-dream conundrum, was now in his pocket Thirty deputies' silver badges winked up at him while he stood in triumph "Reality," he though smugly, "can go hang." But something wasn't right. As the deputies closed in, and the horror dawned, he repeated the words: "We're living in zero gravity. We're living in zero gravity."


It's a portmanteau, see. I think it means something like 'Speaking at great length and with bluster about absolutely nothing." You're welcome to find what you want in it, I suppose. I took the cover photo. Some of the album was initially sketched on a beach in Galveston.
The last two tracks were submitted to songfight. The first one lost (because it has problems, and because the competition was strong). They didn't even accept the second one, and stopped returning my emails after that. Something about puffer-fish love songs did not sit well with them.
That's about it.
