about

It's been 10 years since we last found S no S wandering with aimless glee through the folky pastures of "May April". What a Difference a decade makes. The Machines have taken over and the acoustic guitar has nearly disappeared. The landscape of "10 Digits" is capable of being either bleak and sparse or lush and sometimes chaotic. The point of view has grown at times more hostile, certainly more seasoned but still capable of optimism and wonder. The most noticeable growth for S no S has been in technical achievement, the years between albums has seen an explosion of new and more affordable gear, and studio experience with many other musical projects has made for a better understanding of how to effectively use it. Ultimately "10 Digits" is a journey back into the self. Where "May April" was a goodbye with one foot out the door towards adventure, "10 Digits" is the veteran come home. Pull up a chair, smoke it if you have it, and crank your stereo, let me tell you what you've missed.

Track Name: Bring on the Aliens
come on, bring on the aliens
I can’t wait to see the look on your face
one million light year fall from grace

come on, bring on the aliens
don’t ask me to help you hide your shame
the evidence is all around and we’re to blame

it’s time to re-write the rules
time to re-arrange
some visitors have come and they brought change
Track Name: Where Did You Go?
lets start it off let’s cast some stones maim a few and break some bones
since nothing’s sacred
and you said that you don’t care anymore
then lets climb out upon that limb find the line see where it all begins to end

oh where did you go?

wrap it up in colored clothes seal the box so no one knows that we had dreams and they aren't important anymore maybe we could live our lives comfortably bored

oh where did you go?

It feels like, living someone else’s life, viewed through another’s eyes, and all on borrowed time,
i pinch myself and I find, that it happens every night

It feels like, living someone else’s life
viewed through another’s eyes
all on borrowed time
i pinch myself and I find that it happens every night

oh where did you go?
Track Name: Who Killed Love?
my heart is like an abandoned cobweb dangling from the ceiling
the spider has long since forsaken me
I’m hanging dusty, dirty, I don’t catch much of anything
I am stuck here wondering

Who killed love? What made everything suck? why is everything so fucked? Who killed love?

I take up space I’m just forgotten for the TV
we neglect so easily
I feel all plastic, forever and amusement not like you need
just pull my chain to hear from me
Track Name: Ask Me Later
I’ve got some funny money stolen credit cards
the closest we can get is just to drive real far
come morning we’ll be in Las Vegas and from there we’ll steal a tourists car
we use code names and disguises
it’s impossible to catch us cause we’re shooting stars
Shooting Stars

Nothing typical tonight we are fanciful in flight
we are down to one last chance and we have got to get it right
we are shooting stars, faster than the speed of light
down to one last chance
we have got to get it right

when you wake up we’ll be in denver, breaking fast to pull a dine and dash
fall off the map in western kansas, I know this little bank and it’s got too much cash

they talk about us in the papers
they all have theories on the TV news
no need to waste away in worry
they'll never catch us cause we’re way too smooth
way to smooth

Nothing typical tonight we are fanciful in flight
we are down to one last chance and we have got to get it right
we are shooting stars, faster than the speed of light
down to one last chance
we have got to get it right
Track Name: Far Out With You
I got pressure pressing, contracts binding and a tangled web to weave
I start just so i can stop, I wake dreaming of more sleep

Until finally i break

I go
Far out with you
I float
Far out with you
it's so
far out with you
it's so far out


You break my concentration, dangle there, sweet temptation
no amount of motivation, could overcome my desperation for you

until finally i break
you help me escape
won't you let me go
won't you let me go
Far out with you
It's so
Far out with you
I float
far out with you
it's so far out

Just when i think i've lost it and i cannot stand this place
you come and take me with you and we go to outer space
you get me reeling and i lose all track of time
I can't feel any feelings and I've got nothing in mind
Track Name: Shake Off the Fever
Today I had the feeling that it’s good to be alive
I’m free from complication and I’m picking up a vibe
there is nothing left behind me that I wouldn’t recognize
the path laid about before me, is drawing on my eyes
seems now would be a good time to just wrap it up real nice
to get on with the get on and do better than survive

Shake off the fever grow a pair of able feet
untie your heart and hands and welcome in the beat
come on and dance come join the band feelings are free!
Just throw it back and let’s forget all our defeat
Shake off the fever grow a pair of able feet
untie your heart and hands and welcome in the beat

today I woke up dreaming with a sparkle in my mind
It always seemed my compensation and a blessing in disguise
seams now would be a good time to start another life
to get on with the get on and do better than survive

Shake off the fever grow a pair of able feet
untie your heart and hands and welcome in the beat
come on and dance come join the band feelings are free!
Just throw it back and let’s forget all our defeat
Shake off the fever grow a pair of able feet
untie your heart and hands and welcome in the beat

This way I’ve come to see things shows what’s special and worth time
for the good things I’ll keep waiting
and I’ll always try to try
this is as good as any place
to see what is inside
to wake up with the sunshine on the brighter side of life
Track Name: Under the Weather
there’s something in me that wants something out of reach
There is something about you that's appealing to me
an unspoken motion knocked the wind out of me
you came along with your broom and swept me off my feet

I’m asking you
what should I do? What should I do?
I'll asking you
because I can’t trust me I don’t know what’s true

I think I’m getting signals,
was that just in my mind?
where you just winking at me or is something in your eye
sometimes a great notion comes along and pulls on me
then the air becomes electric and there’s nothing left to breath

I’m asking you
what should I do? What could I do?
I’m asking you
because you can't trust me, I don’t know what’s true
Track Name: Dream A Memory
I’m what’s black in your shadow
I’m in between
l Iurk in the sidewalk cracks
I’m the eyes that move in painting
I’m the unseen feeling, a familiar tingling,
I’m the devil on your shoulder
I’m taking over

I’ll come through your window while you sleep
planting seeds
planting seeds
I’ll come through your window while your sleep
if you dream of me, dream a memory.

I’ll find the flaw in your armor
touch your achilles heel
there is no cause for alarm
you’re not alone
I’m always right here

in the darkness there is always someone saying
in the darkness there is always something that we hide
it doesn’t matter with the best is illuminated
I know the ugly that you only show inside
Track Name: Taming the Itch
I look around as the room blurs
Feels like a bar scene in star wars
What's in this drink? I'm a little unsure
"hello, I don't know you but I've met you before"

Is it the air in here or is it me?
well I'm not itching, it's just allergies.


The cracking feeling at the end of a whip
how far is traveled in a single slip
When old excuses no longer stick
It is time to tame the itch


I've got a headache and it's lasted for days
It has me longing for a nap in the grave
I tried to take more to make an escape
and I just realized that it was a mistake
So call an ambulance, no, maybe a cab
the night is young and there is fun to be had


The cracking feeling at the end of a whip
how far is traveled in a single slip
When old excuses no longer stick
It is time to tame the itch
Track Name: The Reckoning
Start the clock
Because there’s a bad time coming
Tik Tok
why aren’t you already running?
Watch the watch, spot the spot, throw your hands up in disgust
the darkness stalks
the longest walk
expect regret from almost anything

Midnight is the reckoning
come fight your fear
outside and left perched in grief,
the steady stack of tears
midnight is the reckoning
come won’t you dear,
midnight is the reckoning
it’s done already dear

you can’t stop the clock
there’s still a bad time coming
Tik Tok
well passed the point of running
the pressure builds, the cold heart biting
just wait until
the hour is striking

Midnight is the reckoning
come fight your fear
outside and left perched in grief,
the steady stack of tears
midnight is the reckoning
come won’t you dear,
midnight is the reckoning
it’s done already dear
Track Name: The Pen & the Twist
the pen strikes
no way of knowing if it’s wrong
My mind flies and then crash lands upon the ground
it's insight, perspective gained has been hard won

it’s showtime, soon we will know what has been done
glow divine, the lips that swell, the promise comes

I’m beginning to wonder how this works out

It’s Implied, the contract sealed by skin and bone
time lies what was here is now what’s gone

I’m beginning to wonder how this works out
Track Name: I'm a Mutation
I'm a mutation
I'm a mutation does it show?
I'm a mutation
I'm a mutation I just grow... I just grow

Something not so easy
it lives but doesn't breath
it's starving on your front porch and all your neighbors see
This creeping coming over me, regrettably, regrettably indeed

I'm a mutation
I'm a mutation does it show?
I'm a mutation
I'm a mutation I just grow... I'm a mutation

Good things come to those that waste and no one has that long
the creature in your insides is dying on your lawn
There's a creeping coming over me, regrettably, regrettably indeed!

I'm a mutation
I'm a mutation does it show?
I'm a mutation,
I'm a mutation I just grow...

Can't detect a tickle in the corner of your mouth
forget about spending winter, warmly in the south
There's a creeping coming over me, regrettably, regrettably indeed!
Track Name: Ending of the End
If you want I’ll name each piece of falling sand and I will never forget
recall each one as it is slipping through my hands
the price I pay to forgive
the question mark that paused and stopped
ridiculous
I’ll understand if you’re dead

ending of the end
long passed the point where we have to pretend
ending of the end
no one knows where to go so they just spin
ending of the end,
life gets the last laugh then it presses send
ending of the end
fight with the hourglass and see who wins

I had a thought that stuck and simply wouldn’t end
it’s made a mess in my head,
I sat for hours and thought and never would it bend
just like the words that you said
the open mouth, the dreadful shout comes rushing in
an unoriginal sin

ending of the end
long passed the point where we have to pretend
ending of the end
got nowhere to go so we just spin
ending of the end,
life gets the last laugh then it presses send
ending of the end
fight with the hourglass and see who wins

when dark is lost
look what you wrought
see what you did
it gives me reason to live
the open lock, the untied knot, the impulses
the rarest happy ending
