credits

released 04 October 2013
Thank you to Elizabeth Christy for providing the artwork, and for giving me a foot massage that lasted throughout the entirety of The Evil Dead. I love her.

Thank you Zak for playing lead guitar like a robot with guitars for hands on "hazy. . ." I've got a whole other water bottle in my backpack.

"The Life and Sweet Sleeping of Eloise" was recorded at Pebble Beach Studios by Derek Marquez (www.facebook.com/pebblebeachrecordings)

This album is dedicated to Eloise; If it wasn't for her inimitable love and talent for music, this album would not exist.

Track Name: Er Somethin'
Is it true what they say about the head on the table?
Does it move with your hand, with a shirt for a brain? (yes, I think so)
Does it smile? Does it frown like the Mona Lisa?
Standing upright, do its eyes follow you as you move? (yes, they do)

Trash collects around its deadness
A pair of shoes
A pair of scissors

Instead of sounding like plastic, er somethin'
Silence is scarier in movies, ya know?
Hey Ryan, do have a pillow to spare?
October 23rd, 2000 something
Er somethin'
Er somethin'
Track Name: A Happy Day
Memory: going back to the time
Heavenly. we could see the sunrise
Groovin' on the river rocks
"Goofin' with the bees"
Lavender butterflies
Singing

Bobbing held his books
A wedding far below

Run around
Leaping through a thought canal

Quiet down
Isn't this a beautiful place?

We were invisible
And we were free
I think i remember Wolf Creek
Track Name: Soon Enough
I'm just getting by
And it feels so fine
Not a care in the world
Nothing on my mind

Such a simple way
What a happy day

For drowning in the colors, we project, is not the way
To grow
And don't you know that I believe

That soon enough we'll learn to love
With nothing held against
And we can be as happy as can be
Believing in the dream

Join us in this place
Not a moment to waste
You can be who you are
It will do us no harm

And if you only believe
Then with us, you can sing

That drowning in the colors, we project, is not the way
To grow
And don't you know that I believe

That soon enough we'll learn to love
With nothing held against
And we can be as happy as can be
Believing in the dream
Track Name: Fluid In The Frontal Lobe
Haven't eaten a whole meal
In three whole days
So maybe i can change
The way you see my skinny Legs

But you and I both know
It won't
You don't surprise

Haven't seen any other face
In my recent dreams
Did you mean to haunt me
When you ran away

Cause you and I both know
You can't
Thats that
Okay

I can only hope you remember when daddy lost his mind
I was there for you then
All the times that I watched you cry

But you and i both know
You don't
You won't return
Farewell
Someday, you'll remember

And I won't
Track Name: Stone
Afternoon
Before the sun
Has set upon Fort Wanderlust

Colored glass
The aftermath
Is comforting to behold

When I hungered and wept alone
They dried my tears
And lifted up this heart of stone

Counting back from 21
The time it takes to love someone
And all i've got is another song
A drowning wit
A silver tongue

For, still, I hunger
And weep alone
But now it seems I'm needed
How convenient
Should have known

Waking in the unlit cave
A windowless caress
Basking in a silent shame
And blinded with delight

I would see the sky
This cave
No longer being a cage
Track Name: The Joy I Seek
When I find it, the joy i crave
Will I only be asleep?
And should the hummingbirds return to me
Will the nectar have run dry?

Sure, you sounded good to yourself
As you sang along with mother
But she cannot harmonize
So you can sing better

Let me deep inside you
Do not ponder on my faith
Were my words a token less
Than what you needed to play the game

While the dog sleep
I am writing to myself
When is wanting, a sinful greed?
When is having, knowing wealth?

Yes, I know
There were tears in their eyes
Though they hid them in the darkness
Misleading was their candlelight
Betrayed by their heavy breaths

Let me deep inside you
Do not ponder on my faith
Were my words a token less
Than what you need to play
Do you bear the sunlight
Was my body once your shade
Are you now obsessing over words
I cannot say

When I find it
The joy i crave
Will I only be asleep?
Track Name: Calling
To know if I became
All that he wanted
I asked him if his choice was his alone

His answer with conviction
Softly left him
"My brother if you love me, you should know
that though i may not see the truth in everything,
I feel within my heart that it'd be good for me."

And though I haven't been
The best example
I know he never wavered
In his love for me

I think somehow the difference
Made us closer
He grew to be accepting
Kind
And Humble

I know that he must go, but how I worry
My baby brother has turned into a man
His strength of heart is something to be envied

I'll miss him though
I'll miss him everyday
Track Name: Clever Ways
There is a reason for the plights
Of the troubled heart
That we may learn

From every roundabout of jealousy
And discrepancy

There will always be sweet wavering
Pleasant trials of courage
Loss of faith

Join the turning of fate
Understand in your way
When I say
That we may learn

Though not in spite of you
The pain will be anyways
For it has several shapes
And comes in its clever ways

That we may learn

If it's not so then where is meaning?
I think you're seeing

That there will always be sweet wavering
Pleasant trials of courage
Loss of faith
Join the turning of fate

Understand in your way
When I say
That we may learn
That we may learn
That we may change
That we may turn
That we may learn
Track Name: hazy. . .
Crazy
I get so crazy
I just wanna go back to my bed

Hazy
And to my left I see a space that has yet to be filled

Casual dress
Made out of things

Crazy
I get so crazy
When I move I can tell that i've moved

And it's amazing
It is amazing all the people who see

You go ahead and let the likable sensation consume
As If you'll sing it and the comfort of your words will heal

Under the weather
Over the top

Crazy
I get so crazy
Every smoke turns the night into ash

And I'm feelin groovy
I'm feelin groovy like a microphone

My mind is flowing in the yellow of the midnight glow
Just like I dreamt it only now I feel apart from the fold

Easing the clovers
Forcing responses

Crazy
