about

A mundane paranormal encounter in a coffee shop leads a young woman to come to a sad realization about God.

----JF

lyrics

Sarah had a 10 minute conversation with the universe.
She ran into him at a Starbucks, waiting at the end of the line.
He said his name's not God, it's Mr. Gray, and he's jonsing for a Macchiato.
"Sorry about the death and stuff, I didn't you know you guys were down here. But damn, if you kids don't make a mess."

Sarah stared incredulously at a trombone case and a goatee.
Turns out that God's in a ska band, playing every weekend just to make this one land.
And he ain't got time for church, and he ain't got time for you.
You can tell by the awkward shuffle and the stifled sighs when you're asking for forgiveness and he's rolling his eyes.
But she had just one question for the man, and so she asked it.

Mr. Gray, he edged away. He didn't mean to give her any reason to pray.
But she stepped up when he stepped back, and human eschatology collapsed when she laughed,
"You've got a lot to answer for, sir. A lot of people been looking for you a long time. But I got just one question for the Most High - just who the hell do you think you are?"

about

Jim Frankenstein Minneapolis, Minnesota

"Irreverent yet poignant, the experimental indie Ghostbustery of Jim Frankenstein evokes a malty, existential angst with the bourbon oak undertones of a bassy pasquinade. Jim is truly the soul of an old man who died asking 'why?'" -Stone McSullen
