about

About the album:
Please Hold was recorded at various pubs in the Boston area, but mostly at Tommy Doyle's open mic in Newton, MA. Spontaneous performances captured live with an iPhone, mark the beginning musical relationship of Ken Carter's songs with guitar stylings by Tim Ko. Though there are a few jump in percussionists on the album, official drummer Clint Sours appears on track 7. The group now performs often as a 4 piece, sometimes acoustic, sometimes electric, with Leah Ferjulian on bass.

Track Name: LSDLSD (Love Sick Dreamer Love Struck Demon)
LSD/LSD
by Ken Carter

V:
Love you in the morning when the sun hits your face. Shows your  lines and it shows your age. 
Love you in the morning with your hair back in a ponytail.

I'm trying to be better. And to remain real. Someone once said it's not how you feel. No, in love, it's only what you do.

Like everything else it's in the give-and-take. Blow out your brains, hurry up and wait. Carried by a wave to the waiting shore. 

Ch:
All you lovesick dreamers. Jott this down as a fact. It's not an all those pretty little well-timed words you say. It all comes down to how you act.

V:
Swaddled by your weight and gasping for breath. Clutching onto life after grazing death. Only to open your eyes and see their sleeping face.

I tattoo your initial right into my skin. From where I end, to where do we begin. It freaked you out a little, but me, I'm all right with it. 

Ch:
All you love struck demons. Take this down as a fact. It's not an all those pretty little well-timed words you say. 
It all comes down to how you act. 
It all comes down to how we act. 
It all comes down to how we act.
Track Name: Oh Villain Of Redemption
Oh, Villain of Redemption
by Ken Carter

You ever hear the train running through my head. 
Why you lie sleeping in our bed. The one that could break your little heart, tear your whole world apart and leave you for dead. 

Have you ever really seen the moon?
 While lying facedown in your room. In your mouth you hold a spoon, not of silver but of doom, for all of those who've dared to swoon.

If you flinch at your shot of redemption.
And you bridge all that you've got without fear. 
Well you curse the Lord up above, but you swear it's done with love. Oh villain thou shall be cast into redemption. 

Have you ever felt the blade sticking in your back. 
Said words and wished them back. You see them floating there, light speed in mid air. Wanting to cry you only laugh.

When it all goes down it ain't gonna be no feather. 
From now on that means forever.
Lying in the bed you made, crying out why was it me.
I do not see my fate here.

And if you balk at your shot of redemption. 
And you talk to all of those if you thought had held you dear. 
You curse the Lord up above, for bait and switching love. 
Oh villain, thou shall be cast into damnation
Track Name: Fire + Wine
Fire+Wine
by Ken Carter

It's not your faith you're losing boy. It's your hope and fear of love and joy. 
To praise the girl you beat the boy again. 
They're only looking for love. They're only looking for love. They're only looking for love and a little, yes just a little help from above.

What's real in life you left behind from chasing the world in your mind. 
I hope you know that in time you will find. 
Tangle your dreams of love 
with hopes of help from above. 
You won't take the leap no you'll get shoved. 
And your fantasy will burn you blind, almost every time. 

Fat, dumb and lazy that's no way 
to go through life and it's a shame that no one lets on they're that way at all. 
Am I singing about me. 
A sufficient analogy. 
Could you be just like me. 
Thinking to yourself that you're just fine but you know inside it's not all the time, not all the time.

Now we all love somebody. 
That we never told. 
Hold onto that feeling. 
Until you grow old. 
So come one come all. 
To this place that we call space. And unload your mind. 
Let's fill up the place. 

With smiles love and laughter just relax and be yourself. 
If you don't like what one man is saying, you can just turn to someone else. 
The idea it is quite simple though we all could use some help. 
If you are one who keeps their word why would you lie to yourself. Lie to yourself.

Now's the time when we sing good night. 
And I forgot the pilot light. 
And that thing it'll be a beautiful site. 
When it blows skyhigh. 
When it blows skyhigh. 
When it blows skyhigh.
Yeah when that thing blows sky high my love light'll shine like fire in wine. 
Like fire in wine.
Track Name: Hairline
Hair Line

by Tim Kochanski


My time with the devil, was sure well spent
my time with the devil...
He cursed out the angels, "they don't pay their rent"
he cursed out the angels...

Sometimes I’m walking a hairline, 'tween heaven and hell
walking a hairline, 'tween heaven and hell

I spoke with Jesus,he had good things to say
I spoke with Jesus...
He offered a banquet, a feather bed
offered a banquet...

Sometimes I’m walking a hairline, 'tween heaven and hell
walking a hairline, 'tween heaven and hell

You can take me to Sussex County Fair
but don't put me on the stage,
I'm not a bearded lady
I'm not the world's strongest man
Popcorn and cotton candy 
tempt me with sweets and salt 
all things in moderation
honest men admit theirs faults...

Been holding my baby, she’s warm like wine
been holding my baby, though she ain’t mine
All I want is a hot meal, shoes on my feet
All I want is a hot meal
Track Name: Dead Man's Word
Dead Man's Word
by Ken Carter

The appearance of first impressions that's as good as it gets with me.
As good as it gets, as good as it gets with me.
Honesty and slight depression that's as bad as it gets with me. As bad as it gets, as bad as it gets with me.

In the night take me never. Take me over the edge with you.
Take me now or take me never. 
Just, please kill me if you won't. 

Because I can't stand to not be around you. 
I don't want to know that reality. 
No no no I can't stand to not be around you. 
Please press no charges if you find my body. 

I asked her to do it, I almost implored. 
And now I know why there's reeds on the door. 
But have mercy, have mercy, have mercy on me. 
Cause a dead mans wish yeah it carries no weight. 

I said a dead man's word has no weight at all. A dead man's word, has no weight at all. 
A dead man's word, has no weight at all. A dead man's word, has no weight at all...
Track Name: Wind In The Breeze
Wind In The Breeze
by Ken Carter

Oh I love you like the water loves the flame. 
And I hate you. Hate you just the same. 
But I need you like a needle needs a vain. 
Why don't you feel the same. 
Yeah I've got you like a banks got a vault. 
It's nobody's fault.

Yes I know, you've been with me all along. 
But your loyalty it's not worth a song. 
'Cause I've heard you've been asking all around. 
Is there a way to get out of this place without making a sound. Yeah I get it, we all want what we want. 
It's nobody's fault. 

Nobody's fault.  
Neither yours, no you nor me. Nobody's fault except maybe the wind in the breeze. 

I understand, you're going to want to spread your wings. 
But I'll be damned if you think that you're doing it without me. Because I've trained my ever watchful eye. 
To tell if it's being deceived or even disguise. 
No I can't, let you fly from the fall. It's nobody's fault.

It's nobody's fault. 
Neither yours, no you nor me.
Nobody's fault except maybe the wind in the breeze.

In the wind in the breeze it deceives. Constantly. 

And now I see, I've got my daddy's old 44. 
I remember feeling something then you hit the floor. 
And I think I had a thought on what to do. 
But seeing you laying there bleeding I feel sorry for you. 
Yeah we all, we just want what we want. 
It's nobody's fault.
Track Name: You're So Pretty
You're So Pretty
by Ken Carter

You're so pretty, and you've known that, for so long but I don't care about that now.
Because it's your mind I need to intertwine lady. I got to get some sort of hold on you. 
We've told each other whispered confessions, but I'm gonna need the whole love this time. 

Honey if you would, I'd be much obliged. 
Honey if you would, I'd be much obliged. 
Honey if you would, I'd be much obliged.

Can you feel it, as I'm wondering, what you're doing right now where you are.
Are you are ears ringing, do you feel a burning or do you just look up the stars?
Lay your eyes all upon me for that's where I'd choose to die. 

Honey if you would, I'd be much obliged. 
Honey if you would, I'd be much obliged. 
Honey if you would, I'd be much obliged. 

For when the snow falls in the winter and it quiets it all right down. You can hear the blood rushing through your veins as you take it all in.
If you can sit there in that silence, it's there where we reside.
And maybe there is where you find the answer lays within ourselves. 

Honey if you would, I'd be much obliged. 
Honey if you would, I'd be much obliged. 
Honey if you would, I'd be much obliged.
Track Name: Headfirst For The Sun
Headfirst For The Sun
by Ken Carter

Will all of you people please come to your senses and see what you've already done to your world.

I am but one man and cannot make the difference. 
Not that I've tried. 
I should be drug out on the street and beaten. 

And I'd gladly do it for the sake of her soul. 
So she won't have to worry about us anymore, 
taking what we're not given. 

We have battered her face in, and polluted her waters, stripped of beauty, 
and ripped out her veins of preciousness. 

Oh she'll have the last laugh on us. 
She'll have the last laugh on us.. As she dives headfirst for the sun. 
Dives headfirst for the sun.
As she, dives headfirst for the sun. 
Welcome home, my son.
