This is a DEMO!


Today it’s clear but the
bridge looks best when
half obscured by fog

I called room service they would
not sing me a
song about a dog

I am waiting half suspended
need the grounding of your voice
losing hours gaining days
sort the meaning from the noise

The waves roll in but the
water doesn’t
up and leave the bay

The high clouds move but the
wind down here it
blows a different way

I am walking I am standing
I am sitting in a chair
I can’t touch you I can’t see you
yet I know that you are there

I miss you most in the
morning light
I have to take a walk

There’s people out
but the firemen don’t
have the time to talk

I am watching I am thinking
keep my patience keep my poise
I am seething I am breathing
sort the sadness from the joy

How Things Work Seattle, Washington

How Things Work is a rock band that uses horns rather than guitars. We play catchy post-punk art rock songs about happiness in foreign cities, birds that fly late at night, the color Red, and the very loud neighborhood that is Tom’s Head.
