about

This album was recorded in what was originally intended to be a demo session at Paul Langford Studios in Chicago. (paullangfordmusic.com) His studio and panini's lend themselves to productivity, so we went ahead and got an entire album cranked out.

Track Name: Betray Me To Myself
I am disgusted with myself
I am disgusted with myself
Today I saw your smile, and I
Afterwhiled away your time
Tell me, I’m the only one that you’ve been waiting for
Tell me, I’m not the only one that you been waiting for, waiting for
Tell me, I’ve just tricked myself like I’ve done before
Betray me to myself

Sunspots clear my eyes,
clear my mind
Can you see through my charade
I will act out the pieces of me for you
Tell me, I’m the only one that you’ve been waiting for
Tell me, I’m not the only one that you been waiting for, waiting for
Tell me, I’ve just tricked myself like I’ve done before
Betray me to myself

And I been searching for the heart of a fool’s gold
I been stretching out, I been stretching, I been stretching out
Tell me, everything that I been looking for
How do I find, the doors that open
Open my eyes
I no longer need, everything that I thought that I needed
Did I bleed or is this someone else’s blood been shed for me
I no longer know, where I’m going too
I no longer know, what I’m doing here

I am disgusted with myself
I am disgusted with myself
Today I saw your smile, and I
Afterwhiled away your time
Tell me, you’re the only one that I’ve been waiting for
Tell me, I’ve just tricked myself like I’ve done before
Betray me to myself
Betray me to myself
Betray me to myself
Track Name: Bury My Burden
earth folds, into sand, I quake,
mountains, fall into the sea, my grace
breathless, I run and break, when I sing, be my voice
Come away, come away, come away

bury my burden, and my body will decay
dirt under my fingers, tell my bonnie, here I lay
Come away, come away, come away

Pretty lady, turn your eye, I quake
Is it death that knows you by name, by whose grace you came
She said, sir I know kingdoms fall, paint the colors of my lie
Come away, come away, come away

bury my burden, and my body will decay
dirt under my fingers, tell my bonnie, here I lay
Come away, come away, come away

Time is a thief, but I love him so dearly,
Madness my dream, loved so clearly
In my defense, I leave a little further on
Lay down in the trench, I leave, a little further on

bury my burden, and my body will decay
dirt under my fingers, tell my bonnie, here I lay
Come away, come away, come away
Track Name: London Bridge
She is the only game of hide and seek I’ve never won
Tag you’re it and then she’s gone
Her walls are painted with the shadows that hold her in
There is a light under the door, which makes it hard to sleep

Ollie Ollie Oksen-frie

Run as fast as you stand and kick the can,
Heel-toe, connect, and there you go,
The leaves from the trees, chase after
The wind and the rain still chase laughter

Ollie Ollie Oksen-frie

London bridge is breaking down

The East is lining for war
Red rover, red rover, won’t you please come over

Ollie Ollie Oksen-frie
Track Name: Arachnephilia
There’s more beauty in you than I think that I see
So keep it close, woven down, pulled tighter into
Needles like needles, pull me in
When will I see your face again, when will I see your face again

Wrap me, once more
Wrap me, one more time around

There’s more beauty in you than I think that I see
So keep it close, woven down, pulled tighter into
Needles like needles, pull me in
When will I see your face again, when will I see your face again

Wrap me, once more
Wrap me, one more time around
time around

I’ll be your swan
and you my dawn
the sun our memory

I’ll be your swan
and you my dawn
the sun our memory
Track Name: Knock the Wind Right Out of Me
Is this redemption just a candy for my mind
thought you were burned from there long, long, ago
are you still beautiful or is this misrecall.

Never is the only way you ever leave
if breath were mine it leaves in disrespair
do you still laugh

Knock the wind right out of me
Somehow thought enters the mind
The concrete presses down (toward) the line
Mistaken jade to breathe
Head down, crawl through meant to be
Sew me back and set me walking

on my face, and love that will not loosen
chains me here, higher than I fly
only in a mad man’s mind does 4 proceed 3

Knock the wind right out of me
Somehow thought enters the mind
The concrete presses down (toward) the line
Mistaken jade to breathe
Head down, crawl through meant to be
Sew me back and set me walking

Is this coincidence divine
threw away your photograph some time ago
and at 24 degrees, breath falls
Track Name: Daddy's Shoes
Pretending to be grown up again
Puttin’ on my daddy’s shoes
And walkin’ round the house
Sayin’ things like ‘momma, I’ll be home soon’
I put a belt in my blue jeans
And I button up my shirt wrong like I mean it
And I put on my daddy’s coat,
‘Cause that’s what grownups do

Get in my car it’s a cardboard box
Drive to the office, it’s a pile of rocks
I’m beginning to lose my socks
My daddy’s shoes are too large
Break for lunch with the little miss
She’s brought me, a ham and swiss
I lean over, to tell her this
You know, I hope it means a lot.

Pretending to be grown up again
Puttin’ on my daddy’s shoes
And walkin’ round the house
Sayin’ things like ‘momma, I’ll be home soon’
I put a belt in my blue jeans
And I button up my shirt wrong like I mean it
And I put on my daddy’s coat,
‘Cause that’s what grownups do

I crawl in the house on my hands and knees,
So people don’t see the car I don’t need
Grab a book, I’m learning to read
Hope it makes me wise someday
I remember, what my mommy said
‘Bout gettin’ up, and goin’ to bed
Try to see the page I’ve read
And what it all means.

Pretending to be grown up again
Puttin’ on my daddy’s shoes
And walkin’ round the house
Sayin’ things like ‘momma, I’ll be home soon’
I put a belt in my blue jeans
And I button up my shirt wrong like I mean it
And I put on my daddy’s coat,
‘Cause that’s what grownups do
Track Name: Babycakes
Never has anyone held their hand in mine
Held, steadfast and kind, not just walking but dancing the line
Babycakes, I will love you through all of our mistakes
You're my honeydew, I don't you worry I ain't going anywhere but closer to you

I'll be forever and always and you'll be mine
I'll give the stink eye to anyone who gives you a hard time
Babycakes, I will love you through all of our mistakes
You're my honeydew, I don't you worry I ain't going anywhere but closer to you

We will share our grey hairs and rocking chairs, feeling fine
Even when the days are dark and musty, and we get old and dusty, you and me babe ain't ever getting rusty, it's just me... and you spending smiles
Babycakes, I will love you through all of our mistakes
You're my honeydew, I don't you worry I ain't going anywhere but closer to you
Track Name: The Sky is Falling
a drop from the sun
a drop from the sun
fell down
a drop from the sun
a drop from the sun
fell down

(the sky is falling
the sky is falling)

And here i begin
here i begin to
free fall
And here i begin
here i begin to
free fall

(the sky is falling
the sky is falling)

hold out your hand
place this part of your world
the tip of you rests
above
so much left to

(the sky is falling
the sky is falling)
Track Name: Searching for Hay
Searching for hay in stacks of golden needles
I keep searching so but I keep on hurting my hands
Golden needle I seem to have found but there is so many golden needles here
Searching for hay in stacks of golden needles.

Hold me here, tie me down, don't let me throw this all away
Searching for hay in stacks of golden needles.

You can take your thread through the eye
Stitch all your dreams to the empress's clothes
Drown in the endless sea, never find the way to tread
Searching for hay in stacks of golden needles

Hold me here, tie me down, don't let me throw this all away
Searching for hay in stacks of golden needles

Come, sit, my sweet, and I'll build us a house out of straw
This rope it will bind,
run your fingers through mine
Searching for hay in stacks of golden needles

Searching for hay in stacks of golden needles
I keep searching so but I keep on hurting my hands
Golden needle I seem to have found but there is so many golden needles here
Searching for hay in stacks of golden needles.
Track Name: Move Over or Slow Down
Move over or slow down
Take cover in abandon town
I'm at the end of the tunnel, but
Someone turned lights down low
Move over or slow down

Move over or slow down
Crimson tears, cannot see I drown
Darkness, it feels like my handheld
Did I hear or feel your breath fell
Move over or slow down

Nevertheless she holds a pink slip in hand, Move over or slow down
Move over or slow down
would you still love me should the alphabet choose to die, and there be no words to express what has always been said wordless
I pray for gravity, because I don't feel held down so well
Track Name: Rough in the Diamond
She walks along a beach
Walking her sorrows on a leash
Wandering, all along
She’s wondering, what went wrong
She’s looking, for the rough in the diamond
Looking for the glitter’s end
Did he not see, the look in her eyes
As he smiled, and he walked by
They’re looking, for the rough in the diamond

He always called her, “princess”
He never could get out lovely
Wandering up and down
He’s wondering, why she’s gone
He’s looking for the rough in the diamond
Looking for the glitter’s end
Were there any words to say
As she smiled and walked away
She never had a chance to say
They’re looking for the rough in the diamond

She’s carrying a memory with her
He’s trying to leave one behind
Getting this off of his mind
She’s flown away, that’s just like her
They’re looking for the rough in the diamond
Looking for the glitters end
Did he not see, the look in her eyes
As she smiled, and he walked by
They’re looking for the rough in the diamond
They’re looking for the rough in the diamond
Track Name: You Are My Only Love
Seem to have mistaken your life for mine
It was my heart breaking' when you cried
Call me monster, call me liar
You are my only love
You are my only love
You are my only love
You are my only love

You've simply been biding your time
Burdened with crosses both yours and both mine
Call me monster, call me liar
Call me monster, call me

I believe in fairy tales, but some are never real,
Always dragons to slay, no matter how you feel
I never believed in fairy tales, but some I cannot deny
Strangely absent stars and no wings with which to fly

You are my only love
You are my only love
You are my only love
You are my only love
Track Name: Easter Sunrise Kisses
Hold you close to my chest,
Hold you, feel my breath,
This lightness in my head
Brightness filled and fed

Let me wrap my soul around yours
I have nothing for you but,
Easter sunrise kisses.

Feel my cold, cold heart
At your word it starts
The windshield of my mind
Defrosted, cleared and shined

Let me wrap my soul around yours
I have nothing for you but,
Easter sunrise kisses.

Be my puzzle piece
Sit your knees next to my knees
A lovely best best friend
My one and only end

Let me wrap my soul around yours
I have nothing for you but,
Easter sunrise kisses.
