about

This album was written alongside my wife’s diagnosis and early struggle with autoimmune disease while living in Berlin. It tore her apart for a year. We changed our lives significantly to cope with it, and a few recordings came out.

Track Name: Belong 2
I look to the moon and know that I’ve been wrong
Where’s the star that keeps me safe?
Earthquake under my life keeps shaking up
I grab only what i can take

Fire trucks and politics I‘m tired of it
Found a ditch; a quick place to hide
Can’t breathe with the suffocating steps above
No sense in keeping your pride

And I will never be anything better than what I know
I keep thinking I belong
And I will never be anything better than what I know
I keep thinking I belong

Moments flash before your eyes as you make haste
The world collapsing around you
No control of anything you hesitate
A good man’s got so much to lose

‘Cause I will never be anything better than what I know
I keep thinking I belong
And I will never be anything better than what I know
I keep thinking I belong

Stay in
Look up
Let out
Breathe
Come up
Blow out
Destruct

Track Name: Hope Inside My Baby’s ❤️
Sun high in the sky over the front
Sun set in the back over an empty chair
Read all the books that you can
Terror still of the unknown
A rocking chair on wheels is not a place for a girl like you
What can I do to build some hope inside my baby’s heart
Track Name: Sun Loop
She’s got a dream inside of her head
The ending has us dead
She can’t help thinking she deserved this
Keep eating what they fed
She wanted love in the right ways
A spiral never undone
Her mind is always on fire
Every direction she loops around the sun

She spent her 20s checking news feeds
Well, how'd you spend your time?
She’s got demons she ain’t proud of
I know she’ll make it up to me sometime

And because of you i feel i’m worth it feel the blood rush into my veins
Because of you i feel i’m worth it with your blood i feel everything

She’s like the lady Madonna
She’s a mermaid with a spike
She wants a party at dinner
She’s a pretty flower reaching for the light

Because of you i feel i’m worth it feel the blood rush into my veins
Because of you i feel i’m worth it with your blood i feel everything
Because of you i feel i’m worth it without you i’m down on my knees
Because of you i feel i’m worth it when i’m with you i’m worth everything I dream

I watch the sun come down
Across this angry town
We’ll never end up found
We’ll never end up found

Because of you i feel i’m worth it feel the blood rush into my veins
Because of you i feel i’m worth it with your blood i feel everything
Because of you i feel i’m worth it feel the blood rush into my veins
Because of you i feel i’m worth it with your blood i feel everything
Because of you i feel i’m worth it feel the blood rush into my veins
Because of you i feel i’m worth it with your blood i feel everything
Because of you i feel i’m worth it feel the blood rush into my veins
Because of you i feel i’m worth it with your blood i feel everything

I’ve gotta get this feeling out of the way
The city’s pulling me into the bay
I’ve gotta get this feeling out of the way
The city’s pushing me into the bayShe’s got a dream inside of her head
The ending has us dead
She can’t help thinking she deserved this
Keep eating what they fed
She wanted love in the right ways
A spiral never undone
Her mind is always on fire
Every direction she loops around the sun

She spent her 20s checking news feeds
Well, how'd you spend your time?
She’s got demons she ain’t proud of
I know she’ll make it up to me sometime

And because of you i feel i’m worth it feel the blood rush into my veins
Because of you i feel i’m worth it with your blood i feel everything

She’s like the lady Madonna
She’s a mermaid with a spike
She wants a party at dinner
She’s a pretty flower reaching for the light

Because of you i feel i’m worth it feel the blood rush into my veins
Because of you i feel i’m worth it with your blood i feel everything
Because of you i feel i’m worth it without you i’m down on my knees
Because of you i feel i’m worth it when i’m with you i’m worth everything I dream

I watch the sun come down
Across this angry town
We’ll never end up found
We’ll never end up found

Because of you i feel i’m worth it feel the blood rush into my veins
Because of you i feel i’m worth it with your blood i feel everything
Because of you i feel i’m worth it feel the blood rush into my veins
Because of you i feel i’m worth it with your blood i feel everything
Because of you i feel i’m worth it feel the blood rush into my veins
Because of you i feel i’m worth it with your blood i feel everything
Because of you i feel i’m worth it feel the blood rush into my veins
Because of you i feel i’m worth it with your blood i feel everything

I’ve gotta get this feeling out of the way
The city’s pulling me into the bay
I’ve gotta get this feeling out of the way
The city’s pushing me into the bay
Track Name: Old Lady Mary Esther
You didn’t see me from the other way
But I saw you from the other side
And I was running backwards in rewind
To catch the tail end of the time that I caught your eyes at the finish line

Now I am old and worn
I sit in my chair and watch the people go by
All lively quickened steps they go
And all I do is move my ankles to and fro
To and fro

And i paint a lot of pictures of cats
And knit some sweaters that i can’t un-knit back
And hand them away to the strangers on my street
And hum a tune from long ago
And hum a tune from long ago
Just hoping that a breeze would pass my way
And lift my hair up to the sky and then i’ll say
I got a reason to look up at the sun
I got a reason to hear the birds chirping
I got a reason to hear the pitter patter of the children walking by
And they’re laughing and they’re screaming
And they’re laughing and they’re screaming

I could be just a little old lady who’s angry
But I think I’m scared out of my mind
Or so I’m a child who’s lost his sense of time

Usually I smoke a cigarette or two but I don’t know why
Then i’ll put on some TV show i hate but i don’t know why
Then i’ll cry at a picture that i took but i don’t know why
Then i’ll put on some lipstick that i found
It smells like clay, it’s old
Older than me probably

They don’t seem to notice anymore
They don’t seem to notice
Notice themselves on the run
On the run
On the run
Track Name: Totem/Trinket
I made a totem it was staring ‘cross the table at me
I was so proud i gave a name to it and took it to sleep

And no one had one like you
And no one seemed to care

One day I woke up and the totem, it had a big scar
And so I went and bought another with my shiny blue card
I stood in line and saw a thousand other people like me
Running with totems in their hand, in black and silver and green
From totem trophy then to trinket, you lost your meaning

I had the first one like you, little totem
And no one seemed to care

Another sad, sad totem, on its way out
Another sad, sad trinket, lingering around
Track Name: THROBBING
Counterpoint in wings
Dancing in the light
Cut by dark
Punctuated by the rings

Ring
Ring
Ring ring
Vibrations

Metal drops
Interrupted by spotlight
Glaring now
Cutting

Strings plucked
Basement bass vibrating
through the anxiety
Spectrum on the wall
The strings slow it down
Bring me back
Puppeteering the calm

Slowly rock
Wave in the current beat on

Warm lights
stark contrast
Smooth waves washing

Puppeteering the calm
Quiet mind
Be still

Counterpoint we’re dancing in the light
Track Name: Don't Wait
everybody can see through my window
everybody can see in my brain
everybody’s got morbid assumptions
everybody’s all acting the same
but they think they’re all different

Everybody got skin in this game now
Everybody’s they’re worst enemy
everybody don’t have to be outraged
everybody can get up and leave
Most of them can’t afford it

My city’s coming down
we’ll burn it to the ground
we’ll never end up found

don’t wait for me
i’m begging please
listen to me
i’m begging please
don’t wait

The city’s coming down
let’s burn it to the ground
we’ll never end up found
you see the worst abuse
it’s coming through the news
it folds back into you

don’t wait for me
i’m begging please
listen to me
i’m begging please
why can’t you see
that all we do is wait
Track Name: Waste Me '19
waste me

Never felt peace or guilt
Every you will subdue
Photo fades
Just waste me away

In your room winter blooms
Coldest air freeze our tears
Numb to pain
Just waste me away

Moments old turn to stone
Stand outside ‘til we die
Truth it fades
Just waste me away

Moments turn to stone
Stand out in the cold
I’m not even listening
Waste me like a child
Throw me to the fire
Then i’ll start to fade away
Mornings all alone
Was it worth it all?
You will never tell me
Waste me like a child
Throw me in the fire
Then i’ll start to fade away
Track Name: Forget
I need you to
Forget everything
I'll make it up to you someday
Don’t say anything
Nothing at all
This is for your own good I swear

I‘ve seen what‘s next
You’ll see real soon
Won’t feel regret before I run (out of your bedroom)
I‘ve dragged you down
Poisoned the room
You‘re better on this path alone

Can't feel my legs
Can't fill my lungs
Can’t hear my thoughts
But I’m living without you

Take all your thoughts
Throw them into the river
