Almost Gone 04:44
hand in hand walking down the beach it seems to me that nothing's out of reach no complaining while you're here with me trading branding for security no more bending to your least demand no more heaven on installment plan day by day you give me such a pain but once you're gone it's gonna be insane spraying waves that catch you on the run haloed hair when you're toward the sun the summer's ending and it's getting cold you remind me that I'll get old the evening fires in the cooling air reminding me that I'm unprepared you're treating life as if it's one big game but from now on it'll never be the same you're almost gone and it won't be long before you try it's no surprise 'cause you're not broken on the inside packing the car up to hit the road you're so cool but I might explode your every word is always do or die but you don't look back when you say goodbye when you say goodbye you're almost gone and it won't be long before you try it's no surprise 'cause you're not broken on the inside

Haunted 04:04
all, all alone staring from the widow's walk into the dark unknown space is the place where lovers play and worlds decay and all my dreams are haunted by the ghost of your gentle touch I'll make the most of not feeling much till you come home to the doors of dust and dreams where the ways of war and weapons are not what they seem to go on through the land of sweet despair knowing what the dead can't know, that you're not there I'm haunted by the ghost of your gentle touch I'll make the most of not feeling much till you come home till you come home the wind whispers your name telling me that I'm to blame in a way I can't explain the rocks diseased, the earth and trees are haunted by the ghost of your gentle touch I'll make the most of not feeling much I'm haunted by the ghost of your gentle touch I'll make the most of not feeling much till you come home

about

Cantor Deluxe materialized at the Licking Ninevolts studio one cold September evening to lay down this quartet of indie rock originals.

"'Cantor' as in the singer in a church?" I asked, trying to put them at ease.

"No, as in Georg Cantor," the drummer replied. "German mathematician, nineteenth century, discovered different sizes of infinity." The rest of the band nodded reverently.

"Oh," I said.

They plugged in and straightaway reared into "Almost Gone," a fuzzy ode to summer's end and growing up. As the final notes subsided, the bass player mumbled that it was an homage to their favorite band, the Jesus and Mary Chain.

The vocalist excused himself to the restroom. The others shrugged and played on. The result was the curious instrumental cycle of "Hide and Seek."

Soon after, the vocalist returned in full face powder, backcombed hair, and black lipstick. The others took this surprising transformation as a silent command and hastily slid into the groovy 90's goth of "Haunted."

Then they packed up their guitars, muttered polite thanks, and drifted off into the clammy night.
