about

Thank you to all you New York guys- Sammy, Christian, Zeb, Timothy, Anthony, Lancaster, Jeff- dang, can y'all shred. Thanks for for staying up way past (most of) our bedtimes to do this darn thing. Christian, thank you for making songs with water glasses and reminding me. Mr. Crawford, you have seen me in my ups and downs; thanks for always being game to make it a game.
Gautam and Mikey, thanks for always being down to mess around and make beautiful stuff. You guys managed to always make me feel like I knew what I was doing when I usually didn't. Thanks for shivering in the Barn and risking electrocution to play songs about boys and acne.
Cecilia, Hannah, and Emma, thank you for sharing your aesthetic gives with me, for taking meandering concepts and making them concrete and stunning. You all are my heroes.
Dr. Dad, thank you for laying the groundwork for me to go forth and feel like I more or less know what I'm doing. Thank you for showing me through your own innovative, deep compositions that music from the heart is perfect, and that cultivation and time and crossing out and un-crossing out can can all be a part of that process.
Ma, thank you for listening to the album over and over and over and knowing all the words better than I do. Thank you for knowing what I need before I do and for reminding me to laugh at myself, because nothing is really so serious.

Track Name: Meat from Bone
Baiting us with all of your missteps
Playing the game like some amateur
Making your mistakes like they're a trademark
Sucking out the feeling til it’s pure
You’ve been here for a while
So what’s the deal
You’ve been here a while
So what’s the deal
There’s so much that I have left to learn from you
But how am I to separate the meat from bone
Cause from over here it all looks the same to me and it’s
Hard to tell until it’s in my throat
You’ve been here for a while
So what’s the deal
You’ve been here a while
So what’s the deal
Track Name: Baby Bird
I could not save the baby bird
Pink and destroyed lying on my porch
I could not save the baby bird
Desperate to hold but afraid to touch
Sometimes I don’t know how fragile I am
til I’m lying on my back
sometimes I don’t know how fragile you are
til you’re lying on your back
I could not save the baby bird
Sat and cried and cried and cried
Sure I cried for the helpless thing
But I must admit I cried mostly for me
I must admit I cried mostly for me
Sometimes I don’t know how fragile I am
til I’m lying on my back
sometimes I don’t know how fragile you are
til you’re lying on your back
Track Name: Oh My God
You’ve been here for some time longer
Than your arms and legs and head that sit here in the dark
Is it wrong to tell tales taller
If it ig-nites in the listener some sort of lightening spark
If you sing like the little birdies nesting in the park
Oh My God
Nobody told you you were going to die
Oh My God
Nobody told you you were going to die
Oh my god
Oh my god
You recall a first grade playmate
And realize only now that the loss may have stuck
You take comfort in knowing you’ll share her same fate
And you wonder if the others realize they have such luck
Walking a-round on their legs like they don’t give a fuck
Oh My God
Nobody told you you were going to die
Oh My God
Nobody told you you were going to die
Oh my god
Oh my
Track Name: Empathy, OK
no thanks I don't need to be excused
yes I'm aware that the spot may stain
sorry no I'm not trying to be rude
I'd forgotten what it feels like to feel your pain
your insides are coming loose
for some reason mine are too
empathy's ok but I'm actually feeling for you
OK OK
step over threshold and we're back
we were just laughing- weren't we just weren't we
sorry my knuckles needed to crack
we were just laughing weren't we just weren't we
your insides are coming loose
for some reason mine are too
empathy's ok but I'm actually feeling for you
OK OK
Track Name: Baby
We both know
You did not
Draw this all by yourself
We both know
You did not
Draw this all by yourself
You’re just a baby
So go on cry baby
You’re just a baby
So go on cry cry cry
A Bandaid in the
Shower left
To label me as a liar
3 on 1
was to young
to know to fight fire with fire
You’re just a baby
So go on cry baby
You’re just a baby
So go on cry cry cry
I know you’re doing your best
I’m sorry to say
I know you’re doing your best
I’m sorry to say
Your best is not
Best is best is not good enough
You’re just a baby
So go on cry baby
You’re just a baby
So go on cry cry cry
Track Name: Clouds Up Ahead
Clouds up ahead just like memories
Float into them with the same ease
Track Name: More
Everything is so big like the river
we cross it everyday
Everything is so big
I close my eyes
and there’s more more more more
More
There’s More more more
More more more
Everything was so big it overflowed and paved the ground and your feet
that tree was me and that building too
that car was you when you cried
More more more more
There’s More more more
More more more
How much can one brain hold
Shouldn’t it all spill out
Onto the sidewalk there
Evaporate in the air
It’s like it never was
Effect and cause
I want more more more more
More
I want More more more
More more more
How much can one world hold
Shouldn’t it all spill out
Onto the sidewalk there
Evaporate in the air
Track Name: Divine Lorraine
Divine Lorraine Divine Lorraine
Your walls have been empty some time
Divine Lorraine Divine Lorraine
Weren’t the old days sublime
Who walks your halls
Who stares through cracked window panes
And sighs someday someday we’ll be again
Divine Lorraine Divine Lorraine
Frightening as you are fair
Divine Lorraine Divine Lorraine
Hard to not wallow and stare
Who walks your halls
Who stares through cracked window panes
And sighs someday someday we’ll be again
Divine Lorraine Divine Lorraine
Your shadow casts over the town
Divine Lorraine Divine Lorraine
Build you up or tear you down
Who climbs the stair
Who stripped you bare
And left you ripe for the tagging
Stalwart but sagging
Track Name: Trifle
Inside my stomach there grows empty spaces
I'll fill them up with long forgotten faces
If memories are a road
I wish the car would slow down
But why is it that I wish to stare longer
Even if I could satisfy this hunger
What I see is warped
Just a dream-like rendering
Not far
In Northwest PA we built forts of sticks and stones
Where are
Where are the memories if not in my bones
Not far not far not far
In central park higher than our viewpoint
I wondered if I'd ever wear a ring
Where milestones are planted every few feet
A marriage seems a trifle sort of thing
But oh don't get me wrong
I'll always cry at weddings
Not far
In Northwest PA we built forts of sticks and stones
Where are
Where are the memories if not in my bones
Not far not far not far
Track Name: Where Where Where
where where where
where did you run off to?
It's been some time since I've seen you
It's been some time since I've heard your voice
It's been some time since I knew you and it's not of my own devices
It's been some time since you left us
It's been some time since you rode away
It's been some time since we cried your name
blue on that summer day
where where where did you go
where did you go my dear
why why why did you stray why did you stray so far from here
hard to not think of what could have been
what if she hadn't been driving by
what if the weather'd called for rain that day
why was it you not I
where where where did you go
where did you go my dear
why why why did you stray why did you stray so far from here
It's been some time
