Flowers are growing where they never would before
and I've been thinking about places I've never been before.
Some people are critical and I wish they weren't that way
It's alright, here comes the sun to bathe our pallid faces
Rise up to the Sun, kid, who weeps for the Ocean
Track Name: Baby Jay
I found my friends
inside a dream, stepped into a field
Floating, still rowing thru words
Better that I leave them for the real world.
Track Name: Early Bird Special
I'm going down to the snowy beach
I'll race you down to the icy seas
We've been sleeping all day long
Trippin' til the suns long gone.
We've been swimming all day long
Trippin' til the suns long
Skeletal winter vibes and Wellfleet skies
Listen to what Suzy said, "Be back by night time!"
Track Name: Slow Sea
I was sittin' on the end,
I was sittin' on my end, on the end.
I was thinkin' of my friends,
kept repeating all I've said.
Best believe them, left beneath them
Can't ever come home to this again.
We were leaving through the bathroom,
left me blinded by the blank moon.
Wondered why I would even try.
Lost my cool there for a moment,
left the way that I came in.
Simple times kept behind.
Track Name: Evandaddi
He feels like a god amongst these men.
They'd never stand a chance in worlds that overwhelm.
Come on down and find . . .
See out beyond the sea
past all you can't believe.
It's only just a passing waking dream.
All rivers flow to one
Give in and float away . . .
They don't seem the way they should,
earthy smell of aging wood,
third eye closed and insecure . . .
Let the heads split at the ends,
taking all just as it is.
Look beyond but not too far . . .
Track Name: Floater
We didn't know where we came from
Watching the house where I grew in is feeling like our universal dream,
A flickering film between memory and turning off my mind to see.
How long will I stay with me?
He didn't know where he came from
See grassy hill beyond the pine
In and out, back again.
Loopers are feeding off the feeling of the band.
Overturn my hands, dreaming ancient light shine thru the night
Old eyes still surprised by what's in a life
