'LIVE in a Place in Oklahoma' Track listing:

DICKS (1:57)

'THE FALKON FLIES (DIES)' is a testament to truth. In the song, the band – attacked by a wild 'falkon' – is hurt and afraid. The 'falkon' is winged and prehistoric, and has no respect for living with others peacefully. After fending off attacks with a spear, the 'falkon' is finally killed by a bazooka, but not until after members of the band lose arms, ears and noses. The only intact part of them is their sight and their voice. The song was written on a plane.

'DICKS' is another testament to truth. It is a soundbyte from a composed, then discarded, EP-length song called 'Song about the United States of America.' The song, at 20:05, was to be played live in 2005 with a (shown) timer that stopped, with the song, at the 20-minute, five-second mark. These plans were also discarded.

'A PLACE IN OKLAHOMA' is another testament to truth. It is a song about Tall Tales in 2005 and 2006 talking about what it's like to be Tall Tales in 2005 and 2006. More loosely, it is a concession to mediocrity and lack of success.

Tall Tales is Dan Fallis (vocals, accordion), Rob Reid (guitar, backing vocals), Alan Hiserodt (drums), Gregg Dobbs (guitar), Mitch Newlin (bass).
