I was praying to the moon one Friday night,
wishing Jesus wouldn't be so quiet.
I like to think myself a poignant man,
that there is nothing here to understand.
That we're a ripple in the tide, we're washing up on these black sands.

She was wandering the beach on Friday night,
eyes deep as the ocean, distant as the moon.
I like to think my circumstances chaos,
that it is not to understand what made us.
But she's a ripple in the tide, she makes me want to believe.

"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
