about

The idea of over all health is interesting to me. The amount of things that have to line up for someone to feel healthy, (of mind & body) is staggering to me. How one thing can save my mental health, but be detrimental to another and vice versa. I wanted to write a record examining the thought Ive had recently that maybe there is no such thing. No moment of clarity and strength. Maybe true health is learning to live happily despite the things that plague your mind. "Don't Talk Shit About Lizardo" and "Thanks For Everything" examine the importance of a social life and the importance of the lack there of. The idea sleeping (or not sleeping) and how it effects your mind through out the day in "A Nervous Stomach". "Go By Train" looks into why bravery and optimism seem to waver in mental presence, and "Kodiak" & "Mantra" examine loneliness and isolation. I worked hard on this record and can honestly say I'm proud of it. Enjoy!

Track Name: Thanks For Everything
I would say that I'm set in my ways but you've changed, and in the worst way. Because we both know that your current frame work simply won't hold your wait. Truth be told its bold to run a marathon alone. And I know most of what I say sounds like fortune cookie poetry but the wait remains the same.

You've got your double bind love and your second rate drugs from your B rate friends who taught you to give up and that's fine. Its no longer a concern of mine. So lock your class jaw and curb your ristraint give the camera your good side, because after all its just a judgement call, but you don't care at all clearly.

Fuck your couch I know were I'm gonna sleep tonight, nestled tight inside my circular mind because me myself and I, yeah we do just fine. But two's a company and three's a crowd I can't decide which one I want to keep around. Myself bottles things up, and I never knows when to play his cards right, but you...

You got your double bind love and your second rate drugs from your B rate friends who taught you to give up and that's fine. Its no longer a concern of mine. So lock your class jaw and curb your ristraint give the camera your good side, because after all its just a judgement call, but you don't care at all clearly.

Cause I'd love to say that I feel the same, but I don't. Only memories remain. For our sake I hope we find our way because I won't hang the bones out to dry.
Track Name: Don't Talk Shit About Lizardo (Lizard Wizard)
Yeah I wish you luck with love and dust and trying on other peoples shoes. They'll still be a million miles away sitting next to you. Do you look like what you feel like in the light? Do I look like I feel like this is right?

But when did we become strangers? You walk to tall to stoop this low hanging like past tense in my mouth.

But everybody here smokes cigarettes, and everybody here rips bongs, and yeah everybody here would climb a social ladder before they'd move a mountain to stand on.

Yeah I'm just trying to loose track of time, but I can't hide it in a place that I can't find. So low and solo to the ground. So make like roots go on and get comfortable.

But everybody here smokes cigarettes, and everybody here rips bongs, and yeah everybody here would climb a social ladder before they'd move a mountain to stand on.

(everybody here blows smoke)

But when did we become strangers? Your much to tall to fall this far hanging like absence in my mouth.

Ba Da Ba Ba Ba Ba Da Da Ba Ba Ba Ba Da
Ba Da Ba Ba Ba Ba Da Da Ba Ba Ba Ba Da

And yeah everybody here smokes cigarettes, and everybody here rips bongs, and yeah everybody here would climb a social ladder before they'd move a mountain to stand on.
Track Name: A Nervous Stomach
The anatomy of loosing sleep. Killing sheep to burn the wool. For signal fires spread around my head, to point my feet which way to go.

Loosen some screws pull out some pins. Intimidate the boy within, but in my head and in my heart I just can't seem to fall apart completely.

But this is getting old. The worried looks on faces, they must see something I don't. Someone tell me if I've lost it.

Cause its two o'clock on new years eve, and I'm letting it all get to me. Im distancing from everything (someone tell me if I've lost it)

When you buiry a hatch make sure you don't salt the earth. Remember all ghosts will haunt you holy or lonely or cursed. Someone really should tell you, that if there's blood in your teeth its usually just left over from when you bit off your wings.

But in my head and in my heart, I just can't seem to fall apart completely.
Cause its two o'clock on new years eve, and I'm letting it all get to me. Im distancing from everything.
Track Name: Go By Train
I remember you like stormy weather impending over me, from all sides at all times it was electrifying but there's no denying that I don't know you as well as I used to, but no one gets to know how I choose to grow old.

Because you can lie and say that you need me, and I can lie and say that I'll miss you. What is beautiful scenery with ugly feelings and lost is the traveler who goes it alone so don't. Just don't.

I remember you like a cozy sweater like second skin on me but my current truth doesn't fit on you, and the relentless tug on the sheets makes it hard to sleep. I thought I was safe in my bed, trying to avoid a dangerous head and a way of thinking, that needed re-evaluating.

Because you can lie and say that you need me, and I can lie and say that I'll miss you. What is beautiful scenery with ugly feelings and lost is the traveler who goes it alone so don't. Just don't.

And I've become useless in all of this anger, useless in all of this anger.
I've become useless in all of this anger, useless in all of this anger.
I've become useless in all of this anger, useless in all of this anger.
Track Name: Kodiak
You truly are your fathers son. Every day you have to go and show them how the west was won. Straight crooked bight the man in the mirrors tongue, cause he know's who you were yeah he knows who you were.

Masters of misdirection serpents slither in or so say's my fathers god.
But I think we see what we want to see and they simply capitalize on our carelessness.

How do you love something that dies? Counting passes from the last time that you felt alive. Learn to shut your mouth become a better man, what if I say there wrong? What If I say there wrong?

Masters of misdirection serpents slither in or so say's my fathers god.
But I think we see what we want to see and they simply capitalize on our carelessness.

They say if you want to make god laugh go on and tell him your plans. But I see his father reflected in the way he moves his hands. Close to loosing my mind over all of this, but even though I'm crazy you are not alone in this.

You truly are your fathers son.
Track Name: Mantra
Shallow seas I see you watching me. Out of focus in slow motion passing right through me. Please don't let me make a fool of my history, scattered among men so much stronger than me.

But don't wait until your hands are shaking to face the way the waves are breaking. But In time I guess we learn to fake it, and pretend were not spent like all our time and patience.

(because idol hands do the devils work)

To find the man that forced your hand you simply must find a mirror. They say it takes a cold winter to make you a winner. But you cant have one without the other, no fall without summer, but I refuse to run in place for the sake of "moving forward".

Piece of mind I want to feel you next to me. Perpetual motion for the moment centers me. But the devils in the details and the diamond rings. Saints and ghosts are both still dead to me.

But don't wait until your hands are shaking to face the way the waves are breaking. But In time I guess we learn to fake it, and pretend were not spent like all our time and patience.
