2016 Singles Lyrics

Intimacy Vs. Isolation:

nothing seems to matter
deep inside my own space
in my right to be living alone
too comfortable to see disarray
could we get over
use the time to make it easier
the day to make us want to leave the night
we prayed the moment wouldn’t end

i am more than what you see
i am not only what i am in your mind
just trailing light
dreams have left me digging in the sand
for what was promised in my sleep
just trailing light

your tired mind worries what they all think
how did you come across to them?
are they holding you high?
just realize you are barely in their minds
they are thinking of themselves far more than you
they are conscious of themselves far more than you

nothing seems to matter
deep inside my own space
in my right to be living alone
too comfortable to see disarray
could we get over
use the time to make it easier
the day to make us want to leave the night
we prayed the moment wouldn’t end

all i have are dirty hands
there is the tunnel i have cleared, still pitch black
just trailing light
to revive all that is stale and
to relive again and again and again
just one more time

i was swept up into life
gathered together
to this plane i’m attached
ego to mind
so i might as well ride it out
might as well ride harder the next time
just trailing light

your tired mind worries what they all think
how did you come across to them?
are they holding you high?
just realize you are barely in their minds
they are thinking of themselves far more than you
they are conscious of themselves far more than you

you drove me around in your car that night
we were the same kind of tired
we felt just the same in the music
wet leaves, blown around
collectively wondered how far they fly
i knew something big was coming, then
somewhere i had never been
and so we would go there, together
we wielded control
it changed all it touched
some to gold, and yet most to rust

Indefinite:

I might have known what they said when they were wrong and they wanted you to know the inside, outline and meaning
The dusty glow of late summer when the weeds nod and bow and sway and all’s a painting to slip inside and
Skim on the low ground like insects over water
The same speed as the wind
Coming to settle down, dreaming

At a hill overlooking deep blue, the last tinges fading
Pink from a sunset flaming and I throw a rock over ground
Over the town below throw another over the big low moon, then bend knees and jump down
A thousand feet to a dark, quiet clearing in a swamp and

The midnight of sky, it is further away and
The cotton and birch trees and old dandelions grow up above my island
And I cannot reach them

But can watch them
Float across and away and so it keeps changing and growing indefinitely, night and day
As we are all finding new ways to channel our love

Disappearing on our side
While we go and hide
Will answer reach the destiny of everything in time x3

Wired Around:

One land to another and a will to survive
Get a little untied
I will take you there

in one phase, I disassociate, detaching for maximum output
in the next phase, I float on a bed of salt water as my neurons slowly atrophy
I can’t support these spinning plates with only my limbs but I can balance them by blowing upward with my life’s breath, which I should be using in a way that’s real

I don’t know why I’m just struggling around in the footholds, wired
To sing through our lethargy
No need for believing in
We hold all the memories of the ancient dawn
I don’t know why I must die
I don’t know why I must die
I don’t really understand I understand they’ll make it real and wired around

One land to another and a will to survive
Get a little untied
I will take you there

Heart smoking like a shorted fuse
Brain twitching with overused and overrun pathways
I’m trying not to show you images that only mean a thing to me
I was not born into a society that engrains a mental paradigm conducive to naturally feeling balanced
So I must discover it on my own

I don’t know why I’m just struggling around in the footholds, wired
To sing through our lethargy
No need for believing in
We hold all the memories of the ancient dawn
I don’t know why I must die
I don’t know why I must die
I don’t really understand I understand they’ll make it real and wired around

another way to be
I know that you always
every day
I know that you try
you said another way
in a different phase
I know that you always
I know that you try

I don’t know why I’m just struggling around in the footholds, wired
To sing through our lethargy
No need for believing in
We hold all the memories of the ancient dawn
I don’t know why I must die
I don’t know why I must die
I don’t really understand I understand they’ll make it real and wired around

Your Real Name:

everything’s in heaven
that dew has dried
remain calm
airline sweeping in range
beyond, they only barely hear you
the talk that bares the crime
the talk that bares the light
the only zone my zone divides

and rings of gold
they’ll lock their hold
and wrong will roll down mountainside
on screens of us
they’ll not discuss
begin in sleep by rapid eye
we’re only real tonight
we’re only real tonight

I will try to see you in the palette of my mind
into revelation with a map that isn’t mine

everything’s in heaven
that dew has dried
remain calm
airline sweeping in range
beyond, they only really need you
the talk that bares the crime
the talk that bares the light
the only zone my zone divides

and rings of gold
they’ll lock their hold
you’ll ride bad rain down mountainside
and strings of us
will walk above
on rays whose ways we know are right
the right way is implied
the right way is implied

I will try to see you in the palette of my mind
into revelation with a map that isn’t mine
all that you say that you would wanna change
and the mistakes that you have made
they will be crushed below the serenade
everything sings out your real name

Going On:

Whenever I think of those cool green fields I wonder
What’s goin on
In your mind
And always a walk in the distant light has me asking
What’s goin on
Through your eyes

We tore away, we both withdrew
And in the wake of losing you
The petals drifted through the air and to the ground
They were soaked with mud and broken down
The lights did flash and sirens blazed
A violent swirl did slowly dissipate

Now somewhere within driving range
Your two eyes look through their face
I’ve no idea at what they gaze
You even gave away your own name
Now I sink down into my seat
And pray to my computer screen
Sure I’m oriented keen
My future’s mapped, I’ve traced the right streets

Whenever I think of those cool green fields I wonder
What’s goin on
In your mind
And always a walk in the distant light has me asking
What’s goin on
Through your eyes

I’ve scrolled and swiped and peered around
I’ve hoped and planned and been let down
In winter’s washed out light and heavy bleeding film
On summer nights with pockets through which yellow sunlight spills
Sometimes I think I’m callused over, closed to all but you
I know I’m really not, just so afraid of something new

Now somewhere within driving range
Your two eyes look through their face
I’ve no idea at what they gaze
You even gave away your own name
Now I sink down into my seat
And pray to my computer screen
Sure I’m oriented keen
My future’s mapped, I’ve traced the right streets

Strum The Earth:

now we glide along the ledge
getting colder as we climb
let them argue, they can fight
we’ll step outside

with all our radiant minds, we will go
strum the earth and sail to the edge
strum the earth and down we’ll dive
none will bathe in fire
attack the elegant lie you were sold
in the wood that only you know

now we glide along the ledge
getting warmer as we climb
let them argue, they can fight
we’ll step outside

(chorus)

we’re sitting
half-listening
anticipating why
convinced that we’re sure that we know that our impression’s right

(chorus)

Nothing Over The Hill:

there’s this place
I can’t go
It’s the mind that tries to find
has to die to look behind
could it realize
stop the seeking drop the goal

I’m open
I’m ready
wait I’m doing it again
is it right around the bend?
no it’s here now
let’s just flow within the sound

all of the words that I wanna say run like lightning through this layer
this is the first time we’ve ever been in this moment you and I
and it will soon be a place we were and won’t come another time
just like the first ones we thought we loved, it’s a shoe that’s too tight
