Cathedral ceilings to the stepping stones below

Summertime's beaming through the stained glass glow

From London dungeons through the Underground

The beat of this planet's heart, you can hear it pound

As sleeping dogs lie

As sleeping dogs lie

While dreaming dogs fly...

Wistful wisteria climbs up the garden wall

A fist full of groceries up the stairs, down the hall

In our inner cinema we dream and laugh like kids

Sharing our own classics on the backs of our eyelids

As sleeping dogs lie

As sleeping dogs lie

While dreaming dogs fly...

"Thomas Truax crafts rich, poetically evocative songs about insects, trees, technology, and a lifelong obsession with all things lunar. He travels the world performing with his "band" of bizarre self-made instruments including a motorized drum machine made with bike wheels and a souped-up Gramophone called 'The Hornicator', as well as his venerable guitar 'Hank'.
