    Lyrics:

    This sunset dumbs the season’s speech
    How nice of you to notice
    It’s not like I hear you when we speak
    It’s just that I miss the closeness
    Of a year intoned
    From the sequenced rows, now overgrown
    By the weeds of graveyard sonnets

    What was left is up to me
    Why would anyone want to see
    Discouragement shift?

    Threshing the green waves of your sea
    I cut through the ice, a ghostship
    So we collide, I’ll now beseech
    You to dim your lights in moments
    So I can sink slow (why would anyone want to see)
    Far below the cove, I am yours to own
    In this place no one forgets

    What was left is up to me
    Why would anyone want to see
    Freedom rest on its haunches?

    In a granite rose (what was left is up to me)
    I will be enclosed (why would anyone want
    to see, someone so determined)
    I will be enclosed, encased.

    Access: http://owenshire.bandcamp.com/track/post-modern-man

    Lyrics:

    There was a war
    And past the attack
    We will come back
    Our enemies swore

    But we were on land
    Linking all our arms
    Now away from harm
    We knew that we could dance

    With a post-modern man
    Cut out of stone
    His throat was full of tone
    This being how he sang
    And his millennium ran
    Out my backdoor
    Into the cold
    With its head in its hands

    And winter is cold
    And the people are colder
    And when you are self-aware
    There is simply less to be scared of

    And there was a war
    Inside ourselves
    No one could help
    We simply had to abort

    But there was a port
    Not far from here
    Towards which we steered
    So we could pin the award

    On a post-modern man
    Of our very own
    We never were alone
    For this particular span.
    And this millennium ran
    Out my backdoor
    It couldn’t take anymore
    It had all it could stand
    Yet this postmodern man, well, he wasn’t sure

    And the future is sold.
    And the people they know it.
    But when you are self-aware
    No matter the cause of despair
    There’s simply less to be scared of…..

  3. Video commentaries are often boring and somewhat pretentious. That said, if you care about the artistic process, have a listen to the video commentary for "Love Is Dead" by Owenshire from the album Percy Shelley's Heart (2000)

  4. Official video for "Love Is Dead" by Owenshire from the album Percy Shelley's Heart (2000).

    Access: http://owenshire.bandcamp.com/track/love-is-dead

    Lyrics:

    You want some
    I have lots
    This makes sense
    This was sudden

    I thought that love was dead
    I heard that love was dead
    Better not kill off the messenger’s note

    Things seem fine
    I think too much
    When you’re gone
    I feel so untouched

    I heard that love was dead
    I heard that love was dead
    Moved like red leaves in the autumn’s cold

  5. Official video for "Ultimatum" by Owenshire from the album Passport (2007).
    Scripted, filmed, and edited by R. Muhlbock.
    Access: http://owenshire.bandcamp.com/track/ultimatum-live-demo

    Lyrics:

    Our love's like a brick
    or air that's grown too thick
    Constricting, constricted
    Traded all our dead
    I gave oral sex as you're instructing
    Instructed
    I just nod my head
    All this embarrassment of which you were
    The heiress bent on greed
    Who cares if you succeed?

    This simple ultimatum
    The coming of the end
    And all that this contends

    Words built brick by brick
    Held in place by spit
    The words were red
    And reddening
    Traded all our dead
    The dearly departed and departing
    Ceremoniously we march off the cliff

    This discombobulated
    Feeling that we get
    Much like old regrets
    For as the sermons stated
    This is our Armageddon
    But it's not permanent
    As long as we repent

    hey hey (the clouds are my bricks)
