about

This is the first physical release from The Russian Apartments. It compiles material recorded over the last three years. Digital Cover Art by Dylan Jones.

The 11 bonus tracks are old material from the now-retired digital mini-releases More Than Passion, The Last Last You, Double Phantasm, and Songs of Ambivalence and Experience. It was time to consolidate those into something more substantial.

As always, if you buy the digital album, you are free to share the tracks with whoever you like, cover the songs, remix them or whatever. They are released under a CC-BY-NC licence.

Track Name: The Queen of America
Well they made up a figure
And they called it you
And they bought you a market
For the things you do
And you drop like a name
Right into the scene
You're the Queen of America
But what does that mean?

Well they made you a promise
And they kept it too
And you're sure you earned it
Cause you always knew
But I pulled your file
And a funny thing
You're the Queen of America
But who's your King?

Well they made up a figure
And they called it you
And they brought you to market
With the things you do
And you drop like a name
Right into the scene
You're the Queen of America
But what does that mean?
Track Name: Long Tom
Long Tom says
It's just like a poem
It's just like a song
But I could never sing along

& don't you know
My deepest fear
Is not the years --
It's all the threads that disappear

Yet there was day
I stood by your side
The stories crashed
History shook.

And there was day
I stood by your side
Empires crashed
History shook.

Long Tom says
It's just like a poem
It's just like a song
But I could never sing along.
But I could never sing along.
But I could never sing along.
Track Name: Untitled Love Song for Nicole
This
is not the life we chose
But it's the life we know
The world where I'm with you

I've heard
That there's another world
A place we never met
I know that can't be true
Track Name: Miss McGinty's Ghost
Miss McGinty's Ghost
Checks the daily post
For a letter from the coast

And the leaves they squall
Past Miss McGinty's wall
As she marks another fall

And they say you get used to all of it
But I don't think that I could mend

Miss McGinty's Ghost
Checks the daily post
Again

Never spoke my mind.
Tried not to be unkind.
But I left you in a bind --

And the leaves they squall
Past our garden wall
As I'm waiting for your call

And they say I'd get used to all of it
But I don't think that I could mend

Miss McGinty's Ghost
Checks the daily post
Again
Track Name: Gods
When I was young I had my gods,
And I believed in every one.
When I was young I had my gods,
And I believed in every one.
When I was young I had my gods,
And I believed in every one.
When I was young I had my gods,
And I believed in every one.

And I won't take it back.
And I won't take it back.
And I won't take it back.
And I won't take it back
Track Name: Brautigan, Begin Again
I want to leave you, I can't.
I want to be with you, I cant.
