about

This album was built on the ashes of bands and relationships both with girls and friends. I can recall the night before I entered the studio; I was left in a empty house. It was my last couple of nights before I was forced to move back to my hometown. This was the moment that right-angled the rest of my life. Going from taking things lying down to ultimately taking the wheel for the rest of my life. Even now as I write this, I still struggle with the ability to keep that wheel straight. It seems the walls and roads crumble beneath me. Do I continue in the path I've been following? Or do I turn to something more simple? I think back on that moment, sitting in the dark empty hallways, hearing the cracks and creaks of that house. I remember that thought that changed my life forever: it was the purest thought I've ever had, it was so clear. How am I to abandon that? I cannot. These songs not only reflect on all these thoughts and relationships from the past, but also represent the simple beginnings of what is to come next.

Track Name: Garden State
Don't start with me
Going home seems so absurd , how to keep my mind
Sort of speak it's me
You never wanted to live at the ruins of your soul
It's hard to be living everyday
You weren't going go home nor treat me this way
So find the seed plant it everyday
Try to learn to grow that way yeah

You never wanted to be the one to grow old

Most of us see your morning in your way
Slow from the start and you worsen with age
So when your hair turns grey you will see before you
Leave that you wore it on your sleeve

You never wanted to be the one to grow old
Track Name: Lesser Places
Life hold, we're moving on
Sever ties and leave at the crack of the dawn
A one off euphoria break through this

Lost minds stuck to do
Repeat days and never settled thoughts of broken hearts
Trying to strip everyday away to stay awake

Well we go to that
That place we met last
I don't know I don't see what's wrong
With leaving it all behind

To go to those

Lesser places that we have called our own

A day gone is never lost
People short the feelings inside their hearts
I know I see it all the time

Well they go to that
That place they live less
They think they really got away this time
With leaving it all behind

To go to those

Lesser places that we have called our own
Track Name: My Love
Rainy fog in the morning shadows
It's you my love
Gone to bed in the hall of shadows
It's you my love
Every song is burning through strings and I don't know what I know
But I can't wait here
I can still hear her, she's singing

It's you my love

On the day that she held my fingers
Gone to bed in the reign of followers
Holding works in the second degree because i have found another
way home
Because

It's you my love

Hello I'm coming my dreams are of a child's
and I am never coming home
Track Name: The B.B.C.
I've gone into night
The wind breaks me
But I hold tight
You know her eyes are bold
In one way its a dream and the rest I've disposed

But you wanna go
And I wanna know

I'm the one you rely on
Loving me it's a crime
I'm the one that you cry on
Loving now in this night
In this night

Starstruck you
Wasting light
Waiting for the prologue's Knight
To fix these endings of scary dreams
Into never ending love that you won't see

I'm the one you rely on
Loving me its a crime
I'm the one that you cry on
Loving now in the this night
I'm the one that you cry on
Loving now in the this night

Where you go
Where you go
Where you go
Where'd you go?
Track Name: Holy Ghost
Hole in the wall
Why don't you let go at all
For I'm watching a moment of superstitious sounds
I don't wanna frown

Holy ghost that I can't see
Why don't you stick around with me
Because it's you that I do see

I'm self assured I don't want your words
So hang above the clouds
It's a rocket tale of woe
That never ever takes off

Holy ghost that I can't see
Why don't you stick around with me
Because it's you that I can see
Holy ghost I can't see
Can't you see you're my destiny
And it's you that I won't find

Holy ghost that I can see
Why don't you stick around with me
Because it's you that I can't see
Holy ghost that I can't see
Can't you see that you're my Destini
And it's you that I do love
Track Name: City Nights Sleep
You don't watch
What I see
The words you thought but you couldn't dream
I know why
It must have been that guy

So breath deep and follow me
For your life is in vain and it ain't cuz of me
You love everyone but you don't love me

One more day I'm out of time
One more love that I can't find
You are the broken dream

I've lost you to these city streets called home

Deepest night oh can't you see
I need you and you need me
It's someone's job to take
Well it seems to me
I've got that place

One more day I'm out of time
One more love that I can't find
You are the broken dream

I've lost you to these city streets called home
Track Name: Love To Rags To Riches
I'm gone baby give it time
Watch the source of in-divine
Quoted from a text on to you
If you read allowed then I might to
You know

You're not alone anymore

A simple life is undefined
Can't tell one race from one of a kind
If you bark at me , I'll bark at you
From love to rags to riches that ain't you
You know

You're not alone anymore
Track Name: The Sun In My Shadow
You hold the contest that I don't even find
You watch the sun in my shadow and I don't know its mine
Holding through the entire broken mind
It's a gun without a trace, but I know it's mine because

I hold angels in between the snow
That I know heaven holds me in the saneness that I know

Ooooo

What's left to live in this place
I don't even know the reason I became one with you
Why I walk and why the sky is blue
So when I die and I go on loving you
It's like it was meant to be
Ohh bullshit that's through

I hold angels in between the snow
That I know heaven holds me in the saneness that I know

Ooooo
Track Name: Why I Don't Know
When something is moving forward
High among the stars so bright
I know that something is coming
I don't know why I don't know why

I don't know why I don't know

Moving deeper in abyss
I love a god but I don't wanna find
My heart, my face, something new
I don't know why I won't wait now

I don't know why I don't know

Just point me which way to go
So why can't someone tell me
I can't decide this alone
So why can't someone tell me

I don't know why I don't know
Track Name: Like Water
It's like water, deep inside
Holding a wave to what I like
It's like water, it's a night
Where I hold you and you do cry

Ooo

It's like water, light me up
Then throw the rope and catch the moon
It's like water, but I'm alright
I've copied you to suit my life

It's like water , it's a day
Where I watch you and you do say
That the day will come to end
And you will lie and I will bend

Oooo

It's like water, light me up
And throw the rope and catch the moon
Its like water. but I'm alright
I've copied you, is that alright?

My life goes and I'm around,
Can't stay one way, the winds inside
Hold me closer baby I'm alive
I can't believe what's in front of my eyes
It's a new lie

Oooo
