Ancient Mark 03:32
Oh yes he bears an Ancient Mark / This is not a man you can defend / And he explains so patiently / There's nothing he can do about your friend / He said to roll on down the road / It's punishment enough just to exist / He could relieve your heavy load / But the reason that you're running will persist When the Stranger left the town / You had a mind to chase him down the road / When you reach his broken trail / You remembered all the stories you been told / How you'll starve in a land so harsh / You'll either freeze to death or break your bones / Still you spur and clench your teeth / Cloud of dust obscures the pathway home
2.
We were wed by the riverside / made a pledge to the water they would never abide, oh no We were ferried to the other shore / and I told you we were never going back anymore, oh no All I ever need is my baby Had a thought in the back of my mind / we were leaving all the sinners and the saints behind, oh yeah They were gonna have to think again / if they thought we would ever try to make amends All I ever need is my baby Take me back to the water
3.
Deccan Traps 03:33
Try to find some peace in the Deccan Traps / Hiding in the leagues of the Deccan Traps / You were not deceived by the Deccan Traps / Your other eye can see through the Deccan Traps Meet me on Rama's Bridge In the high country of the Deccan Traps / Rocks will make you bleed for the Deccan Traps / When they said retreat to the Deccan Traps / You were not received by the Deccan Traps Meet me on Rama's Bridge On the alkali hills of the Deccan Traps / Tasted freedom so sweet of the Deccan Traps / In the dry river beds of the Deccan Traps / You can lay your bones down in the Deccan Traps

about

Dutch Courage St. Louis, Missouri

St. Louis songwriter Andy Puechner grew up obsessed with music: playing his father’s rock albums in the family's rumpus- room, and making a racket playing bass in his High School punk bands.  His talent for melody convinced him to perform solo as Dutch Courage, garnering notice from outlets like the Riverfront Times & Shepherd Express.
He continues to write and record music in his STL City home.
