"Neutral Shirt captures the mundanity of the world and loneliness of it all while inviting us to be a part of it and encouraging us not to give up; shades of Stephen Steinbrink. The dualities of friendship and isolation, technology and luddism all peek through these songs and give it a distinctly 2016 feel. Truly lovely songs for a historically awful year. "

Track Name: Alone Today
alone today

yesterday I was a lonesome wreck
one more hour and I'm still in bed
I don't know what I can do I said
I don't know what I can do you said

alone today

sudden changes left me all alone
nothing to do when I'm stuck at home
I think about calling you on the phone

alone today
Track Name: Put That Phone Away
i wait by the phone
you never call

i'm really sad

put that phone away
put that frown away
everything will be ok
Track Name: Dust On Your Shelf
i drive my car
i look at the stars
i think about you
i don't know what to do
i close my eyes
i go to sleep
i forget to eat
i drown in my sheets
i stay in bed
i play dead
i need some help
i'm just dust on your shelf
Track Name: The Last Time
it's been a long time coming
your smile's fading away
I see the siren's flashing
can't be with you today

kissing you
kissing you good-bye
kissing you
for the last time

think of you
from time to time
think of you
and I'll be fine
Track Name: Sometimes I Just Want to Give Up
sometimes I just want to give up
and call it day
stay in bed
don't bother callin' me

sometimes I can't wait to wake up
and go outside
hang out with my friends
hope the day never ends

I can't wait to stay in bed all day
I can't wait to go outside and play
Track Name: Best Friend
you told me I was beautiful
you showed my how to love again
you're my best friend

you put a smile on my face
you told me I would be OK
you're my best friend

never want the day to end
can't wait to see you again
you're my best friend
