about

The first release by the long running Austin TX alternative band The Coffee Sergeants turned some heads back in 1990 when it was first released. In a time when the rules were loud, hard, and fast, the Sergeants were none of these. Opting instead for subtle nuance, melodic integrity, and introspection. This 'cassette only' release set the tone for a body of work that continues 26 years later.

Track Name: Some Fair Day
And some fair day I'll think of you
where the earth is green, and the sky is blue
the sound of your breath in my ear
is really all I want to hear

And some fair day you'll think of me
on a warm spring ride down to the sea
where the earth is sand and the sea is blue
maybe then I'll think of you
Track Name: Something You Can't Change
I heard that yesterday was yesterday is yesterday and
I always heard that yesterday is something you can't change

I knew a girl, and I know her still
I still hear her say to me
By way of Egypt I will take you back
and show you yourself as a child but
I heard that yesterday was yesterday is yesterday and
I always heard that yesterday is something you can't change

She showed me things like diamond thoughts
like chainsaw plans
like turquoise ships at sea
showed me things that made me see
there's really nothing back there for me now.
I heard that yesterday was yesterday is yesterday and
I always heard that yesterday is something you can't change
Track Name: Then You Will Know
I don't feel a thing
No I don't feel a thing
no joy or remorse
no pleasure or pain
as you walk brazen and high-heeled across my soul and
out my door
But when the summer comes, then you will know
when I'm far away, then you will know

Comes on black as night and slow as Christmas
speaks to me in some broken language I don't understand
when the sun is high, then you will know
when the days are long, then you will know

When the time is right, then you will know
Then you will know
Track Name: Autumn Days
Would you like to know something about just where I'm coming from?
April nights, and autumn days
and the time spent in between them slips so silently away
not today,
no not today

Would you like to know what's going on inside her head?
What she said.
Ah what she said.
She'd like to know herself but she can't seem to find the time.
I'd give her mine.
I'd give her mine

Would you like to know something about just where I'm coming from?
April nights, and autumn days
