The Moonshot Man lyrics:
These city boys wrap their arms around every girl that was meant for me
Don’t cross me out, cause I’m working for the higher ups and the powers that be
I’ll show you my hands on the wheel and all the photographs
Of famous people, look right beside them that’s me

Oh now come my sweet, stroll over the moonshot land
I know my sweet, I’m half of a moonshot man
When you fall asleep, hold tight to my moonlit hand

I’ll tie your hair up in the wind
A broken waterfall a stranded manatee
I said I’ll try to set em free
Upon the radio without a single friend
I said I’m trying to be me
So if you stroll with me, across the moonshot night
We can see what we can see.

Oh come now sweet, stroll over the moonshot land
I know my sweet, I’m half of a moonshot man
When you fall asleep, hold tight to my moonlit hand
When you fall asleep, hold tight to my moonshot hand

Lyrics:

Though I know, it’s not the same
It starts up every game
So it swings, hard and low
Think I’ll take my things and go

So untied and burden free
Down sidewalks light and sweet
All I know is that it seems
Completely like a dream

Holy, Holy, Holy Daydream

Though I know, it’s not the same
Holy holy holy Daydream
So it swings, hard and low
Holy holy holy Daydream
So untied and burden free
Holy, Holy, Holy Daydream
All I know is that it seems
Completely like a dream

“Whisper, Pray, Make Room” wins a Spotlight Award

Thanks to everyone for voting for WPMR as Favorite Play in this years Spotlight Awards! Lois and I didn’t go last night – it’s far, we couldn’t get a sitter, and I didn’t think I stood a chance. In fact, I shouldn’t have stood a chance, but I think that Mr. Bennington and Mr. Whatley pushed some buttons in the background.

Thanks to the director (and one of the hosts of the awards show), John Herman, who accepted on my behalf.

“The Fireman’s Waiting” Song

I really don’t know what this song is about. But one more Sean song and I’ll be releasing a new album on iTunes, including the Smoke Song, the Moon Song, the Poor Man’s Lullaby…and 10 others that I can locate.

If anyone knows what this song is about, please leave a comment, or email me at sleeves at radioghost dot com. Thank you.

Lyrics:

Everything you see was meant to be not believed
Everything you do is was will never be known

Everyone you meet is not to be deceived
Everyone you don’t may be safely ignored

Wish you could choose but the fireman’s waiting
To usher you into a hole in the floor
Wish you could make of it more in the making
Wish you could make it more and more

Ron & Fez Phone Jingle

I think I forgot about this one. I do remember that I managed to get the phone number wrong in the first version…singing “One eight six ron zero fez…” for some reason.

Bad at numbers. Art by Keviemetal.

Anyway – here it is:

Master Class in Music with Sherwin Sleeves

When I created and uploaded the above video, I thought I’d share it only privately on The Stalwarts website. But then I hit upon the snag that youtube permits you to privately share videos with only 50 people. And I need to share it with a few more than that.

So I thought I would use the video to pitch the AMV subscription once again.

For about 12 dollars a month, you get:

1. A limited edition CD, numbered and signed, with original artwork. One CD per month for 6 months.
2. Access to the Stalwarts website, which includes various types of downloadable extra audio (recorded walks, songs) and video (the filmed of AMV the Play, things like Master Class below. A video tour of Sherwin’s neighborhood is currently in the works). And lastly, a forum to discuss whatever you like.

A six month subscription costs $77.76. There’s a month to month plan of $12.96 and a 3 month plan of $38.88. If you’re not interested in the CD – there’s a download-only option of $45 for the entire six months.

Payment can be sent via Paypal to my email (sphurley@yahoo.com). Other forms of payment can be worked out.

Lastly – there is no such thing as being too late. Subscribers can join at any time.
