about

Clip Art Chicago, Illinois

Songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Andy Rosenstein has been making music under the Clip Art moniker since 2008, but spent most of that time playing in other people's bands. In 2014, he left behind life on the road with JC Brooks and The Uptown Sound (Bloodshot Records) to put his own music first. Clip Art's debut LP Culler comes out in April 2015. ... more

Track Name: Airborne Ranger
11,316 days
aloft in our idle, wasted, idols’ ways
White flag waving underneath the waves
Would you savor all the time we saved?

You never found the time to be an airborne ranger
You never found the time to learn all the things we know
You never found the time to study up on Dostoevsky
You never found the time. You let it go, so let it go

Swing ellipsis 'til your orbit slows
tumbling fiery to your earthen hole
Win the moment, lose your everyday
Shock rag nut job, such a bold display

You never found the time. It was a toothless venom
You never found the time and you've surely lost control
You never found the time. Now you're counting all your commas
You never found the time. You let it go, so let it go

You'll recollect the sorrow
my you're alone
You'll get it set tomorrow
Take this time, take this time
Scuttle the past, redeem the present
Call it a draw when all your heart's spent
Now just pay your rent

White flag waving underneath the waves
Would you savor all the time we saved?

You never found the time to be an airborne ranger
You never found the time to learn anything we know
You never made the time to read a page of Dostoevsky
You never made the time
You let it go, so let it go. You let it go, so let it go
Track Name: South Bend
Walk with me
along the Spree
so eagerly we each
can be deceived

Leave your swain
under the rain
or we'll remain
with every smile feigned

The approach to this wreck isn't pretty
When you know how it ends
When you find you've struck out in the city
crawl back to South Bend

aloft, assured
a mockingbird
was undeterred
and we became inured

The approach to this wreck isn't pretty
When you know how it ends
When you find you've struck out in the city
crawl back to South Bend
(crawl back to South Bend)

callous cloud
soon drenched the fowl
and damped the howl
you never let aloud

Time! Time! Time! Time! Time! Time!

The approach to this wreck isn't pretty
When you know how it ends
When you find you've struck out in the city
crawl back to South Bend
(crawl back to South Bend) etc.
Track Name: Galicea
So we're gonna take it back
Once more now
No before, no settling scores
No background
Tame the fire in the daytime

Keep me alive til it's showtime
We'll restack, so tired, with no time  
I'll Die of an honest heart... Galicea



Days apart and you've become
a silent actress

Close my eyes it's all humdrum
and madness
Fill the holes in the daytime
Shake my hide when it's showtime
I'll come back desired in no time
To die of an honest heart, Galicea
  

I've seen the worst

And it's the worst
But I know you'll keep me safe from you
After what you said, a river flowed from my head
Carried me downstream, the river made a salt sea
Come back to my eye, a river been left bone dry



We'll relax, grow old in no time
With every stolen stride, you're mine Galicea
You're my will, my drive, and I need ya
To die of an honest heart
Track Name: Too Late
Yeah I'm steering you straight
Hand on the handle
I've been keeping the flame
Those boys don't hold a candle.

Don't stop
Wait for the finish
I just give all the facts
I'm not a cynic

But it's too late to watch the sun rise
Yeah it's too late to watch the sun rise

Now I burn up
When you get too low
I've said that we got a job
Avoid the sideshows

Don't break or crack
to get her together
If time is a task
Then we're the measure

But it's too late to watch the sun rise
Yeah it's too late to watch the sun rise
Don't hesitate. It's the weight of the chase
But we're too late to watch the sun rise
Track Name: Politics of Ghosts
We’ll keep the ocean underwater
Hand so slight you’ll wish it were a hammer

Don’t walk away
working all the while you’ll feel fine

when you’re waiting you’re behind



The politics of ghosts

possess the wires behind our eyes
it’s so invisible
just to assuage the voices we self-flagellate

as we congratulate ourselves
History’s revenge - Genesis of modern man



Fugitive furtive and phlegmatic

long lost fellow with your field left fallow
Don’t walk away
working all the while you’ll feel fine

when you’re waiting you’re behind



The politics of ghosts

possess the wires behind our eyes
it’s so incredible
just to assuage the voices we self-flagellate

as we congratulate ourselves
History’s revenge - Genesis of modern man

Don’t walk away
working all the while you’ll feel fine

when you’re waiting you’re behind



The politics of ghosts

possess the wires behind our eyes
it’s so invisible
just to assuage the voices we self-flagellate

as we congratulate ourselves
History’s revenge - Genesis of modern man
History’s revenge - Genesis of modern man
Track Name: Anyone You Meet
Heavy shoulders and aching eyes
won't have to look anymore when I cease to be your wife
You read my letter I'd better pack up my things
Five years gone and there's nothing for me in your life

All this finally done, defeat
though mostly bitter I taste the sweet

Bitter truths come in through the lies
a pedal goes down as the pressure's applied
what comes next don't know I haven't seen it through
but it'll be too far gone by the time your cheek dries

and then you'll see how she played you
like a puppet tied up through and through

Lesser shoulders carry heavy eyes
getting so much heavier I don't know if it's me
when your weight grows twice
and you shrink to the size of the penny on the floor of your car
I'll go to the mountains, you'd go to the sea

Oh i know now how she won her treat
It won't be different for anyone you meet
anyone you meet
anyone you meet
anyone you meet
