Spaceland came from dreams Now it’s just a distant satellite We were nobodies, waiting for the bar-back to lift the gate Sitting on the sidewalk, kicking broken glass, waiting for the gate Waiting for the gate Oh, I wish I could’ve had just one more night with Los Angeles In the freeway wind, under sideways sun, life never ends I have known more empty bedrooms than I’ll ever know myself Waiting for the gate Open up Waiting for the gate Open up I’ve got three hours Need coffee and a shower and a walk to re-consider: do I even have a mission? Another life I’m missing? Someone I should be kissing? Going by Spaceland came from dreams Now it’s just a distant satellite I swear someday we’ll make it if you let me close my eyes We’re still sidewalk phantoms stumbling through smoke as the evening hits Waiting for the gate Open up Waiting for the gate Open up Waiting for the gate Open up Waiting for the gate Open up Waiting for the gate

about

We got the master rights back to The State of Gold this year. We resequenced, remastered and redesigned this album that originally came out on June 30th, 2015. It is new and alive to us — I hope it's new and alive to you, too.
