Ready? 03:02
I hear you talk about it, I see you walk around it The rhythm slows and we rewind My melodies are stagnant, all consonance is lost Overwhelmed by what I can’t describe Sink me, sink me, sink my ship When you fight you know you'll win I just can’t think about it, don’t want to hear about it Push problems down into the ground It’s all so overwhelming; I just can’t shake the feeling You’ve written your last words for me Such heavy language girl, you must know what you say But do you know how much it weighs?
Well I called to you, and you never called back Sent you a letter, but you don't recall that Waited for you, but you never came back So here's my guitar, gonna give you a heart attack I wrote you a song, the first day we met I sang it to you, and you just shook your head You said "I hear you boy, but you're singing too loud, Take it down, and you can take me out" I wanna shake the walls, in front of your heart Gonna take your bones, and tear 'em apart Packed my things, and I went away Thinking I would just see you another day But now you won't call me and this record's about you Well I'm sure that the next one will be good without you Playing across town and I see your face Back of the room in this crowded space I played you the song that I wrote when we met From the look in your eyes it went right over your head
Fell asleep on the bus, left me six blocks up, taught me never to lie, always keep out an eye Don't move, don't sing, I bring, nothing Burned out I need a break, I'm all yours left to take, wires begin to fray, nothing here left to say I know, you don't, I breathe, you see One day I'll build my own, one day inside my home, paid for but left behind, screaming only inside Don't move, don't speak, don't say, anything
Sometimes 02:59
It changes things, hearing your breath between your ears Breaths speed up, wasting oxygen Block out sound around you and see what you hear Faster pace of breath for what? I shouldn't have to We shouldn't have to But all others before us have Wasting years of time, and memories Rushing home Home is rarely as close as you want to be Home is where you want to be Want to get away Let them be away Always want to get away Let those who want naught to do with us Spend the time, coming in So we can all relax, enjoy life Make it something we want We burn up our lives All memories flash Make it something that we want
Lake Effect 05:39
I cry every time I hear "The Great Salt Lake" Cause the chord at the top and the middle with the break Remind me of your love You never let me finish without bringing it around To where it all started and reminding me about That first song I never met someone with so much in her head Who never published thoughts or really said All she feels like But when I reach in and search for a word You come out with the greatest sentence I've ever heard In my whole life


Recorded with friends in cabins and apartments throughout this year. More to come.
