about

As an elementary school teacher the idea of autumn representing a beginning has become ingrained in songwriter Billy Sugarfix’s psyche. Whereas the confusion and angst of relationships ending has been well documented in the pop canon, the drama involved in a relationship’s beginning is rarely addressed. So, this record seeks to explore the potential trials involved in a relationship’s beginning, often using autumn as a metaphor.

Track Name: Autumn's Envy
The way you held me every time we said goodbye
Well you can hardly blame a guy
Certain windows will close if you waste time

You looked at me and we both leaned forward
You went soft and you closed your eyes
Never had I imagined such a smile
That said “you win”, Pulled me in

Or was it only summer trying to assert its heated will
Or a heart tired of denying, lying
Too full to be still

I’ve seen you with and without your glasses
I’ve heard you cry and I’ve made you laugh
But I’d never seen you look like that
Thought it was on
Was I wrong

Or was it only autum’s envy after having slept a year
With no chance of a beginning,
Spinning listlessly its gears

As the daylight drew to a grey and auburn hue
Took a long look at you
Like a tempest came the truth
Was it too soon

Or was it only summer trying to assert its heated will
Or a heart tired of denying, lying
Too full to be still

Was it only autum’s envy after having slept a year
With no chance of a beginning,
Spinning listlessly its gears
Track Name: September Fools
September Fools

I can’t judge my notion, I’m too full of cupid’s potion
Can’t believe I left myself open, at the mercy of my hoping

I think about you all the time I feel my heart crossing the line
And all I want to do is make you smile

You’re showing up in all my dreams
There’s no use interpreting
Subconsciously I hear the sandman sing

Chorus:
This is not a choice September Fools
We’re servants to the harvest moon
This is not a choice Septmber Fools
Venus moves into our view

Sorry if I seem somber, can’t hold it in any longer
The facts will feed on me, ‘til I set my secret free

But when I look into your eyes, my limbs go limp my tongue is tied
I summon all the nerve that I posses
Then the truth comes slowly slipping
Like a gentle exorcism
Like a burden lifted from my chest

Chorus
Track Name: The Bass Player
It’s alright if you fall in love with the
bass player with the boots and the bob hair cut
Ask the sound man to tun her up
And get lost in the low end
its ok to pretend

Fender precision running through and ampeg
Watch her hands as they move up and down the neck,
The sunburst body compliments
Her sweater and that’s not an accident
I bet she’s sweeter than the stripes on a pepper mint

Oooooooooo I find myself swaying
to the lines that she’s playing
Allow my mind to slip and slide
As she plays her part in perfect time


Ooooooh will she notice me
I’m a face in the crowd literally
It isn’t hard to think she’ll see
Lost in sound and make believe


Ooooooooh and when she’s free
Behind the merch table, buttons and t’s
It’s ok to pay ten bucks
To meet her face to face just once
To meet her face to face just once
Track Name: Ms. Gregory
Stocking Feet
A paper sign
The crooning Caliphone
On 45

Innocence
White pickett fence
Mrs. Gregory I feel strange
Please work your ways again

I’m lost inside the ruse
If I’m anything I’m confused
I don’t understand the rules
If I’m anything I’m a fool

Stolen sweets
Long losing streaks
We nailed the hen house door
And tried to sleep

The blizzard hit
I wandered out in it
I saw the panther’s prints
Snow killed the evidence

I’m lost inside the ruse
If I’m anything I’m confused
I don’t understand the rules
If I’m anything I’m a fool
Track Name: Humming Your Questions
Humming your questions, dancing your answers
Oh feather of pheasant, melanistic panther
You look like a garden, you’re harboring faeries
The secrets of Isis, the daredevil Aries

Chorus:
All behold your kaleidoscope mother
And I told your trembling father
We saw a falling tree, we didn’t hear a thing
I’ll call you anything, except for make believe

Out in the open, high on a Sunday
Chasing a tomten, abandon the highway
You sing like a bower, you lived through the fable
Escaped from the tower, born in a stable

Chorus

Sweet are the sparks from the friction unfolding
Twinkling tracers blue green and golden
Daze as in dazzle, nod as in slumber
Can we make peace with the spell that we’re under
