about

Our first full-length album, an eclectic collection of songs.

"The CD sounds butterfly-like beautiful, fragile like Fleet Foxes but strong as Superglue. From the finger-picking opener "Autumn Leaves" to "We Were Children" and back to the stunning cover of New Order's "Bizarre Love Triangle" mashed with Cyndie Lauper's "Time After Time," it's hard not to get sucked into their sensitivity."
- OC Weekly

Track Name: Autumn Leaves
We’ll float through the trees
With all of the autumn leaves come down
And we’ll come to rest
Stitches in a blanket ever-warming the ground.
We could stay rotting
And melt to one
Returning to the place we were made

Lost in a sea of we, stings struggle all around
Shut it out now
We found our fortune,
We were already there
We lay full of eyes
And gently rocking in the breeze
Then the rains came
And washed us away

With love, life and autumn leaves we'll find our way home
We’re going to find it

To be two leaves aflame among the trees
That are destined to be set apart

Both of our vessels lost in the shroud
Designed to keep imperfection out
A quality portrait left under bed
Forced to meet its untimely end
We’re charging the rapids fighting the tide
Left us choked by our own protest
The marble we chiseled and tied in a bow
Left in pieces all on the floor
Track Name: Ebb and Flow
You lost your job with all the other 49
The only choice we’ve left is selling clothes for dimes
We could
All live off nature we’ll dig and
Steal and kill and find with our time
It is alright it is alright it is alright

Save me a place in line under the amber light
We’ve got this constant loss of blood now all the time
You know that
We could depend on the mending
to come after the night alright
It is alright it is alright it alright

It is alright it is alright it is alright
Track Name: Birds and Stuff
There’s an ancient
Proverb I wanted to tell you, it says a lot
It says it’s not for kings to fall in love
Save it for the birds and stuff

I can see what you’re trying to mean
But I can’t believe what you’re doing to me
Cuz’ if you think love isn’t good enough
I'll go find a bird to love.

Chorus:
We could learn a lot together
Even if we’re not together
I am glad I found you
The ether lay us out together
I prefer the darker weather
I want my arms around you

Will you still hang out
When my hairs grey and I’m def and shout
Cuz’ I know ill stick around
When your hair’s gone and your belly’s round

I can’t say if I’ll be in town
Or if someone will put me in the ground
But if you will be my bird, I will be your bird
Without another word.

Sometimes your not
I feel like you’re a cold I caught
I’ve been there too
I’ve been there too
I’ve been there too

You’re a half thought through tattoo
And though I know you’re not
I feel like you’re all I got, I do

If you want me to if you want me to if you want me to
Track Name: We Forgive You, Gene
Can you hear me can you see me
Sleepless sings the sand
Can you hear me can you see me
Can you understand

Oh, oh, ohhhh
We forgive you Gene
Track Name: Breathe Tenderly
And so the times and memories
And so the times and memories
Breathe in and out and swallow me
Breathe in, breathe out, breathe tenderly

It’s funny how the time goes by
It floats or flies but never dies
It likes to make you wonder why
And throw the rest into the fire

Girl I was the absent one
The all resounding one now we’re undone
And girl you wanted everything
Though everything was there all along
All along

Fasten belts and safety chairs
Cuz life is really happening
It takes the shape of suffering
It takes the shape of love you bring
And if you long for memories
The girl, the sea, the song you sing
Or understanding suffering
Breathe in, breathe out, breathe tenderly

If I lost control, girl you know
That it could be so bad
If you lost control, girl you know
That it could be so bad (its so bad)
And if we lost control, girl you know
That it could be so bad (its so bad)
And if we all lost control, girl you know
That it could be so bad (its so bad)
Track Name: I Know You Know
I know when something’s wrong
I know when they are tearing at you
I know when something’s wrong
Your voice is telling me again

I know when something’s wrong
And I know how to hurt you

Oooh, Oooh

I know you know
You know I know

I know there’s something wrong
It’s seaping through your skin
I know I’m something wrong
And You’re telling me again

Don’t tell me that I’m wrong
Cause I don’t want to hurt you

I know you know
You know I know
I know you know
You know I know

I know you know
You know I know
I know you know
You know I know
I know you know
You know I know
I know you know
You know I know
Track Name: Cycle Mother Earth
Far as this golden thread may weave
And lead, we’ll find its end.
To the end of all our being
If need be, we’ll find its end.
You’re a trip, you’re a modern symphony
In C in me
And in the air you leave
I breathe and live forever ahhh…

We are the dust we are the dust
we are the dust we are
we are the dust we are the
dust

Far as our legs will take us
Strong as we can learn to be
We share the glad and sorrow
With all of antiquity
And drink the tears we borrow
From the earth so all can be
Complete the circle never changing
In its symmetry ahhh….
Track Name: Sarah
Girl I see you taking well to life amongst all these sudden changes
Do do do do do
Do do do do do
But the author of your story has a funny way
of tearing our your pages
Do do do do do ahh

You tell yourself you have no say in all these things
and this is what you’ve come to
do do do do do
do do do do do
the pages turn and chapters close you trust and suffer
this is how he wrote you
do do do do do ahh

You stand, you fight alone
You sigh, you cry alone
Ahh
Track Name: Fire Song
Take the fire
Take what I’ve done
And make it done
It will be
sew and reap
reap and sew
reverse, go on,
reverse, go on go
go until you,
go until you,
go until you,
go until you go

Oh, this is how it goes
Oh, this is how it goes

Take the fire,
Take what I’ve done and make it
Track Name: Phil and Marie
The morning came with a sense of urgency
The culmination of our recent memories
She came somber shutting closed the bedroom door
“This time I’m sure.”

She sat beside him with the love of all their years
To feel a room grow empty while with company
The tremor in his hand did end so suddenly
And endlessly

There wasn’t time enough for us
But there was love, there is love
There is no distance between us
For our love is enough

She looked at all the pictures in the family room
The girl that met the boy who sang a different tune
The tremor in her hand it did begin to show
She wished for more

For two to live as one for such a long time
For one to split to two distinct and single minds
And would he leave to live himself another life
And would she try

Don’t you know life is change
So death is just another rearrange
Track Name: Bizarre Love Triangle/Time After Time
Every time i think of you
I feel shot right through with a bolt of blue
It's no problem of mine but it's a problem I find
Living a life that I can't leave behind
There's no sense in telling me
The wisdom of a fool won't set you free
But that's the way that it goes
And it's what nobody knows
While every day my confusion grows

Every time I see you falling
I get down on my knees and pray
I'm waiting for that final moment
You'll say the words that I can't say

I feel fine and I feel good
I'm feeling like I never should
Whenever I get this way, I just don't know what to say
Why can't we be ourselves like we were yesterday
I'm not sure what this could mean
I don't think you're what you seem
I do admit to myself
That if I hurt someone else
Then I'll never see just what we're meant to be

Every time I see you falling
I get down on my knees and pray
I'm waiting for that final moment you’ll
Say the words that I can't say
You said, "Go slow, I fall behind"
The second hand unwinds

If you're lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you, I'll be waiting
Time after time
Track Name: Vagaries
Understand my vagaries
And understand all that’s in me
Everyone seems so hard to see
And no one sees me, but through me

Your elegance and mastery
Of hiding your heart in shadow
Sends me spiraling in a fit
Like a pagan dance around fire, around fire

Mouths were made to transpose faith
From the coded beats of our heart
Somewhere the wires were crossed
Losing every subtlety

We should learn to speak with our eyes
Until they learn to speak for themselves
And wonder to the end of it all
With our hands stretched to the horizon
Track Name: We Were Children
We were children holding candles to the darkness and the dread
We were lovers overcome with love untainted and unwed
We would climb the ancient step we would swim the ancient sea until our metal strong instead was rust red

We would lie in wait with capes of dew collecting in our hair and when sent sailing with a shake they only went in pairs we would climb the ancient wall we would skip the ancient lee until our metal strong instead

We were as we are echoes of the sound oh, oh, oh, oh
We are as we were echoes all our lives oh, oh, oh, oh
