    It's about 2" x 3" and looks darn good hanging from a lanyard.

Coyote came to earth as a clean-up man fix the mess and get the world redressed that was the only plan But not alone, no, he was given a brother The fox was made, give coyote the aid These instructions spoken to the other Step four times if you find me dead, Step four times I come back again step over me Then, one day coyote, was struck with an arrow there was blood on his chest and fox, he knew from the mess this would surely be a fatal blow Kneeling, weeping, by his brother, stone dead Not even a fight, this fallen Desert Knight, but fox remembered the words he said Never will pay for my fiery theft come back even if one hair is left Never will pay for my fiery theft come back even if one hair is left Eventually fox grew old and tired couldn’t keep up with coyote having never been rewired He fell to the earth, never to take that step again glancing behind, coyote turned to find his brother was forever dead. He started to step, step, step over and over just step, step How many steps to bring you back to me Oh don’t you leave me now! oh, no, I don’t want it to end no, not yet.

Look away please hide your eyes you know my vision’s based on size god has made my bed for me we’ll hide away where none will see Forever and a day as many miles to walk away where happiness begins don’t know where I parked my car again so just pack up and leave I’ve still got other souls to reave Never wonder never why another half a mile to buy Never one to fall from grace never one to fall if I landed on my face would you recognize me at all See us melting into blue I could never get that far from you still ignoring all the hype don’t you know that I’m too sick to type

No, can't you hear them say no, can't you hear them say no, can't you hear them say Jambalaya, Jambalaya break it on down to the left street baking no meat, only 8 feet, laugh it up make a wrong sound to the high hopes trollin' wrong dopes, tying no ropes, look around now unfurled, lead it by now unfurled, lead it by hobbling, (can't complete the rhythm) crawling, (can't complete the rhythm) mauling, what, who, where, why? who can have all when they want some then the dogs come, eat the stale crumb, next in line feel it all dumb in a fake rub it's a take hub, if ya get snubbed, step in time

Veins take on the prism Of hearts' electric roar Three years gone I still don't know What I was searching for Cross the map Mind the gap May I have your seat? My heart is weak! Calling here, cross the years Does your heart still beat with mine? Will you meet me there someday At the end of the district line Looking back, fade to black From a memory sublime Hope your travel card is good To the end of the district line London bridge has fallen Kentish Town's too far Waterloo's defeated me In Richmond shines the star Through the dark To the park There's a vulpine mien in the sylvan scene

has anyone got the time to sit and fret about the way snow cones don’t really work no? the syrup always ends up in the bottom of the cup clock men runnin’ to and fro takin’ just enough time to yell at you from their open car window ya know it isn’t the first time Find the help you need take the help you seek And with this suit I can fly higher than the people downtown try to keep my on the ground can’t the keep pace man? I’m pullin’ away And with this suit who could dream bigger gotta grab it with both hands, pick my own winner no perception’s gonna get me down harvard ain’t got no business like the busy-ness of one pale life wind sprinting to the next strife take a ticket and wait in line for the pain he calls like this and she calls like that when you wake up in the morning reachin’ for the sun oh no he don’t like that pebbles in their place

Again I think this way again A friend, he quotes a song so I listen, Trying to relate, But the notes just drift on by As the music rattles on It's all about some guy you see, Who grew up too damn fast. He lived his youth to its fullest, But the time, The time just didn't last. Again I feel this way again A friend he names a book, So I read it, Trying to relate But the words just drift on by And the book seems way too real. It's all about some guy you see, Who outgrew his old town. I'd like to think he loved them all, But the place, The place just got him down. Again I see your face again A friend says call you over So I call you, Hoping you'll relate But my voice just drifts on by Cause your music's on too loud. Even if you don't understand, I hope you'll still be there. Don't sit back and apologize, Just show, Just show me that you care.

Breathe in, fade away breathe in, feel decay all I know is dead and gone we left back at golden pond and though you were cold as ice the flowers on your grave looked nice reach up and pull the cord relax and grind your sword If I don’t seek reward What’s it we’re moving toward Breathe in, fade away breathe in, feel decay I look back you drift along Reading write compose the song Feel it right where short is long Hear it now and then it’s gone reach up and pull the cord relax and grind your sword If I don’t seek reward What’s it we’re moving toward

woke up at 4 callin’ my dad to see if he can drop me off at the airport my cary-on bag, has enough clothes to last me I got it all set up face book status updated so my page won’t be berated with the hey where are you? don’t ignore me I’ll tell ‘em that, I’m gonna be in Portland I hope they can keep, their Jealousy under wraps the doors draw back by themselves and I awaken hear the wind blowin’ in my ears though the seat next to me may contain something contagious an itch can’t pull the smile out of me now the seat belt light is on if you can make it to the bathroom it’s already to late so, put your head phones on and when you open your eyes you’ll be in Maine I step out into the conditioned air of the glorious Portland international Jetport, yes, all 7 gates of it woah! all the lights the blurry sights you know those sights seen so unsightly I’ll give it a day or two, see if the sun keeps this shade of grey I hit the club, or should I say the Denny’s Maybe I’ll go mess with Stephen King Chorus snow hats, lobsters, pine trees, chowder it’s so cold my breath is solid I made an igloo out of my dinner and

I’ve been down, at the bottom so believe me I know, how you feel and baby if you hadn’t let the sun, go down on me then it wouldn’t be so lonely at the top when you said, that you didn’t love me I thought I would never stand on these two feet again if there were so many fish, left in the sea then why would it be so lonely at the top you know what’s comin’ next you keep pushin’ me down, underwater and I can’t make gills, out of these dollar bills and baby if there hadn’t been the time, if there hadn’t been a way then I couldn’t stand here before you I couldn’t get get on my knees here and say oh there you go, now you have me I’ve splattered my soul all over the page I’m gonna take another swig, of this bottle for free and I’ll pretend it ain’t so lonely at the top

I could never find a pill box big enough to hold the cancer in my pen you’ll have to take it twice a day he’ll present a glass of water, bottoms up find the product as the cells still multiply- from end to end they’re growin’ still when the plaintiff raises her glass to the melting, wax encrusted lava lamp please not to heat that on the stove as the jury argues further between suicide and murder cause the later it takes two, so hold my hand I’m just waiting to die we’re all waiting to die in between cotton filler that we use to stuff our lives we’re just waiting to die we’re all waiting to die so make some more excuses keep it grounded, never try can you hear the pitter patter of the dream-eaters attacking once again who left the lights on in the hall? it wasn’t his decision, this is not the thing he wanted had the poison done it’s job we’d both be skippin’ stones in Beirut now the crowd has an addiction, where had Jane left all her needles in the drawer and put her menthols in my hand when the drugs, they taste like candy and your dog is sippin’ brandy, then Beethoven best roll over one more time. Let it see let it see Let us see let us see I don’t buy your words of wisdom So let us see, let us see Let us see, let us see Let us see, let us see I’ll write my own damn answer just let us see

Free me from the bonds of your allure You've got me hooked, and I want more With those eyes, those curves sublime You've got the charm, I want you mine I can't get rid of you, let me be I want all of you, and none of me Losing myself and finding you Can not make sense of what to do I'm drawn to you, I can't let go I watch your dress ebb and flow What's underneath, I long to find Still I cannot free my mind Every word I speak, is one more sin Breaking down the thoughts I had within I'm letting go of what once was Your evil charms have won your cause Riddance to you, devil girl You've taken my precious world Turned upside down, and turned around I'm lost inside, inside your eyes Inside your eyes

Gathered, sorted and dispersed Lined up in rows to see. Hushed in our conversation What cause have we to rejoice asks one man. I say look at your hands your feet and feel your heart What other reason do we need. The pipes shine, like liquid metal Falling from the invisible, infinite well above the alter that soaks up all of their offerings Their sacrament, meaning much more than words. Stops out, the very air exalted by the ringing golden machine as it sings it’s praises to the world to the clouds the sun and me. And to you hear it say Christine, Gloria. A great throne before us, or rather the center of some great nervous system. An endless field of controls. Tell me where was the one that turned on the color Where is the lever to mystify and hypnotize away All our ever lasting fears and where, was the stop, that filled me up with warmth did you have the time did you have the strength The will or the patience to make a little light in this dark world. A light that shines so much brighter Than any lamp. No, no I’ll never go back, I gotta get up, get up, get up, get, get out of this kind of mind that said to never believe, never give in, And never surrender yourself, unto the magic again, unto the magic again, unto the magic again.

about

If you've seen Jared (Pepper) at a show and talked to him about the CDs he's selling, you've probably heard him say "oh, the first four are really bad. You should get THIS one instead." He genuinely believes that, but hey, your favorite song might be on one of those first four! Here's what he decided to do. He took a vote, and chose the 3 most popular songs on each of the first four Look Left albums. He took those songs and completely re-recorded them from the ground up.

These are the same songs you heard on the older albums, but with 5 years recording experience put behind them. They're better recorded, better performed, and better arranged. Take a listen and see what you think.

about

Look Left Phoenix, Arizona

Look Left was formed in 2008 when Jared Clark (Vocals/Acoustic Guitar) decided he wanted to be a rock musician. He went out into the harrowing Northwestern Pennsylvania tundra, bought a microphone and started recording. He was joined by Derek Wilber (Bass), Andrew Cotts (Guitar/Backing Vocals), and Matt Royek (Cajon/Percussion/Oddjobs).

LATER after graduating the college, Jared continues alone.
