about

Phil Lomac’s Stranger’s Funeral is an eight-song collection of indie folk-ish pop/rock originals from musician/songwriter Phil Lomac. While his solid vocals and guitar playing, lyrical craftsmanship, and DIY production values make his six mostly acoustic songs far more accomplished and pleasingly compelling than most, it’s the two more electric songs — eponymous opener and (especially) double-tracked vocal closer “Cinderella” — that point to an even more promising musical muse worth pursuing.

Track Name: Boat is Burning
Older, wiser and a little more confused
Will I have it all or am I forced to choose
Between liberty and powerless abuse
A dangerous chemistry that keeps me close to you

Man is down this boat is burnin'
On a drunken sea its turnin'

Winter winds carve summer sand back into sea
A heavy undertow is pulling down on me
The weight of water like the weight of history
So if I get it wrong would you still believe

Man is down this boat is burnin'
On a drunken sea its turnin
Track Name: Stranger's Funeral
I couldn't quite put my finger on it
It wasn't more than a moment then it passed

I stole a glance in the wrong direction
I took a chance at an intersection time goes fast

Harder than it has to be
Louder than laughter reads
Stuck in a place in between you and me

I wrote a book with a happy ending
It didn't suit me so I left her standing by the door

I brought some flowers to a stranger's funeral
I saw the flier on a downtown mural most be bored

Harder than it has to be
Louder than laughter reads
Stuck in a place in between you and me

Beams of light on the coffee table
We try to talk but we're both unable all choked up

Man walks in with a closed umbrella
They called for rain on the morning weather guess we're stuck

Harder than it has to be
Louder than laughter reads
Stuck in a place in between you and me
Track Name: Cinderella
Cinderella lost her shoe now she's looking for a knife
If she finds one we're all screwed she'll be comin' for your life

Find some shelter loose the keys
Hide your footsteps through the leaves
I don't know what brought us here
I thought that everything was clear

Straight fear early day pain
Don't worry 'bout a thing

Fairy tales are what you need when you can't find words to speak
I don't know what you believe but I think we've been deceived

Find some shelter loose the keys
Hide your footsteps through the leaves
I don't know what brought us here
But I know I need you near

Straight fear early day pain
Don't worry 'bout a thing
Track Name: Marc Higgins Said
Slow movin' train to the Hall of Fame in Nashville, TN
That's where we'll hang for the dollar drinks and cheaper company
Marc Higgins said you played better on the second night
Marc Higgins said I think he's right

Low flyin' planes overhead outside apartment windows
We watch the rain and the clouds roll in like jagged arrows
Marc Higgins said this town's flatter than the floors I've crashed on
Marc Higgins said don't think he's wrong
