Big love to Furhoof for including me on the Furious Hoops comp and especially to Ryan for helping make this album happen!

And finally…. To Hubbell, my sweet guiding angel dog. We found each other in the Arizona desert back in 2009. You have been my best friend and truest companion since that day. I am infinitely grateful for all you have taught me, all you continue to teach me, and all you give to this world with your radiant little dog heart. <3 This album is mostly for you <3

Track Name: Come Back
Come Back
Come Back come back
to me

Come back
Come back come back
to me

I’ll wait
I’ll wait I’ll wait
for you
Track Name: Said & Done
Every one of you I know has knelt before the code
Every one of you I know has feared to be alone
It’s not that you can’t see the hole or have a key to turn
But you’re staying stuck inside a house that’s set to burn

And when all is said and done
We’ll wash it away
Or sweep it underneath the rug

Every part of you is thrashing to become unbound
Every bar that holds you in is rooted underground
It’s not that you can’t see your face reflected in the pond
But that your just standing naked in a forest on fire

And when all is said and done
We’ll wash it away
Or sweep it underneath the rug
Track Name: Little Human (Going On the Day)
Atop the world train
I see the whole green thing
From up here I see
straight down to the river
And it’s running like I am
I always am…

I know what I want to give you
I know that it’s hard for you
To see me as a man now
To trust in all the “strength and wisdom”
I thought i had gained
Fall into my hands

I came here
With my grandfather
When I was your boy’s age
We stopped for a small moment
At the roots of the oldest tree
We looked above to the geese
Flying in Vees
They always fly in Vees

I know what I want to give you
I know that it’s hard for you
To see me as a man now
To trust in all the “strength and wisdom”
I thought i had gained
Fall into my hands

My little man hands
I’m just a little man
Just a little human

Going on the day
Not knowing the way
Going on the day
Not knowing the way
Track Name: Worm Smell (Petrichor)
After the rains made
A beach of suburban pavements
They breeched our brain waves
And left a song of dreams

It makes a worm smell
It makes a worm smell
It makes a worm smell
It makes a worm smell

After the walls fell
And left a pile of colored felts
They breeched our brain waves
And left a song of dreams

It makes a worm smell
It makes a worm smell
It makes a worm smell
It makes a worm smell
Track Name: Darkness
I’ve gotten used to the darkness in you
And, I’ve gotten used to the darkness in me too
I’ve gotten used to the darkness in the sky
And, I’ve gotten used to the darkness in your eyes
I’ve gotten used to the darkness in your heart
Oh, and I’ve gotten used to putting darkness in my art
I’ve gotten used to the darkness coming along
And I’ve gotten used to putting darkness in my songs

I’ve gotten used to the darkness in you
And, I’ve gotten used to the darkness in me too

So when it comes to consume
I’ll sit there and let it do
Because I’ve gotten used to the darkness is you

You, you’ve got a light
You’ve got a light in you
Oh, and I
I’ve got a light
I’ve got a light In me too
Track Name: Wooden Organs
(((Instrumental)))
Track Name: Sucker in the Shade
When it goes down
Cuz it may go down soon
When I’m old
Too old to move
We’ll still have these days
Days of floating in the waves

Take these to my grave
These perfect days

You can call me insane
And the way I’ve lived
It aint tame
But lord I’m not ashamed
My soul remains engraved
On these rocks
On this plane

Call it astral
Call it framed
I AINT NO SUCKER IN THE SHADE!
Track Name: Learning
I’m learning how to take things slowly
So I don’t break down early
And leave in my wake
A lip of pain
No one’s deserving

I’ve been counting all my blessings
And loving the grace that’s keeping them blessed
I’ve been earning trust from people
So i can be good people my self

We’ll fight off the fear
With love-light in our eyes
And walk
through the dark

I’ve been learning how to take things lightly
So I can be light

We’ll fight off the fear
With love-light in our eyes
And walk
through the dark

And walk
through the dark
Track Name: Work It Out
Oh you don’t have
to take a piece
of everything that comes your way

Sometimes you gotta take your time

Oh you don’t have to take advice
From everyone that comes your way

Sometimes you gotta rest your mind

Oh you don’t have
To take a bite
of everything that comes your way
Sometimes you gotta take your time
Oh you don’t have to take advice
From everyone that comes your way

Sometimes you gotta rest your mind

I can understand how the word got out
Just understand
You gotta work it out
Work it out
Work it out
Work it out now
Work it out

I don’t think selfish is the word
Maybe you’re just self assured

You don’t have
to take a piece
of everything that comes your way

Sometimes you gotta take your time

Oh you don’t have to take advice
From everyone that comes your way

Sometimes you gotta rest your mind

I can understand how the word got out
Just understand
You gotta work it out
Work it out
Work it out
Work it out now
Work it out
Track Name: Quiet Dog
(((Instrumental)))
Track Name: Choose Love
I return
From day of working
To find you
In the sound
And through the window
I see you play
Your moves are sharp
And all you are
Is all you are
I need to know
All there is
To know about you
I fear nothing
I’m never afraid
Because I’ve been
To “the darkest place that there is”
Never again

I choose LOVE
I’ve chosen LOVE
It’s all there is
All there is
All there is
Track Name: Lonesome Howl
You saved me from my own hell
To this day I don’t know how
Singing with those ancient tones
Plain to see I was all alone
with my lonesome howl

Lonesome Howl
Howl
Howl
How?

All along the river’s edge
I was trapped up in my head
Singing with those broken bones
Plain to say i was all alone
But i was saved somehow

Saved somehow
How?
How?
How?

Give now praise to ancient beasts
Of Love and light and rest and peace
Finding food out in the sand
Now you eat right from my hand
You’ll still hear me in the pack
Now i know there’s no going back

To my lonesome howl
My lonesome howl
Lonesome howl
Lonesome Howl
Howl
Howl
Howl

Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
