October Country Listening to "Blink of an Eye" is like getting into a long (there are 19 songs here!), late-night conversation with an old friend, and the longer you listen, the more your realize that beneath your friend's bright, earthy exterior lies the soul of a poet. These songs drill down deep into the human condition, but with absolutely zero pretense, never losing their earthy charm. Now that's talent.

Track Name: Way Down Deep
Tell me what you see
When you go way down deep
When you descend into the cellar of yourself
Can you tell me?

Nine steps down to the landing
A turn of 90 degrees (and then another three)
You don't even need the light on anymore
You just do it all from memory

Down there it's black as night
You only go when you have to
In the darkness you can almost feel
The touch of something that's coming to get you

Chorus:
And you might light a candle
And hold it overhead
And you might find there's nothing
And put your fears to bed
But you're far too content
To live in darkness instead
Because you're too afraid of what you might see
Whenever you go way down deep

What you don't realize
Is that your own imagination
Far exceeds what you can see with your own eyes
And leaves you with that sense of trepidation

We always build a mystery
Whenever we can't see behind the curtain
But why resign yourself to dying of anxiety?
I find that it's better to be certain
