about

this is really lo-fi. sorry for the clicks from the looper. these were recorded in photobooth on my mac, with some chopping and light editing in garageband. no mic, no nothing, i'm sorry. one day, maybe. had to get these off my head and outta my chest.

Track Name: empty acres
empty yer aches
bury them deep
in the ground

once there was a field of you growing

i'd like to walk through again
Track Name: chimney service
welcome back
welcome back home
you will find yourself in weary psalms
held in my bruised palms

honey babe,
i turn the pages for you
i put crosses in your name too
but still, i ran
but still, i ran

in all of the time
i thought you'd come back soon
i was waiting in this room

honey babe,
i turn the pages for you
i put crosses in your name too
am i the only one who
ran from your holy hands
Track Name: burst & bloom
let the warmth of my mouth
melt everything down
the snow will disappear
but i'll still be here

there was a small death that afternoon
you left so soon
just as i burst and bloomed
you left so soon
Track Name: unknown #2
i share a home with the spiders
who live behind the books & guns
just near the hidden remnants
of our lost loved ones
unspoken of, they were too young, too young

there ain't shame in our dead
no, there ain't no honor in not bein mentioned
these things i know for sure
yeah, these things i know for sure

now please don't bury me with them
no matter how close i get
to the ghosts who could hold me forever
forever, hold me
o.o

there ain't shame in our dead
no, there ain't no honor in not bein mentioned
these things i know for sure
yeah, these things i know for sure

we are the kin
who are sometimes forgotten
we are the kin
Track Name: smoke rises
smoke rises up to heaven
or descends to the devil
all dependin on which way the wind goes

all i know is

i wanna go home
