illuminatedheadache This was one fine wave to ride. I'd paddle out and take this back to shore over and over again. Tight rhythms and melodies and enchanting tones paired with some exceptional lyrics and unforgettable lines. Favorite track: Young Chicago.

Track Name: Light
i am the boat, i am the captain
i am the dance, i am the dancing

the wrinkles of my past are smoothing out at last
lingering light lost among layers and layers of life

i am the flora, i am the flame
the never sunken, the never saved

the pulsing in my neck no longer beats itself black
the last of a life lost among layers and layers of light

i have integrated backwards, i am sapling into seed
die apart or work together
i will be wave if you will be breeze
Track Name: Young Chicago
in the morning when no sun shatters my dreaming games
i rub my eyes, surrender everything
come the evening when your headlights paint the back of my room
i feel nothing, oh!, it feels so good

i was still so free and young
when i found out my fate was to become
my father's first dead son
my family's loneliest one

young Chicago-- that's just some place that my brother sleeps
well, i'll be damned if he is blind in snow, without me
never treads on those with whom he shares sunlight
never is not waiting on some great return
neither am i

i was still so free and young
when i found out my fate was to become
my father's first dead son
my family's loneliest one
Track Name: Spooky Surf
broken body in sweet disguise
lazy sun takes all day to rise
big black ocean swallow me
blue black wizard
black blue sea

there is a boy out there somewhere
and he's living his last day
in the morning he will succumb to the current
as the ocean has it's way
Track Name: Door
in soft decay, our second future on the rocks
well, the door was open
i knew the gate was locked
so do not stuff the ballot box
my mind is not some palace

the walls may seem clean
and each room appears neat...
but, by god, did you check the closets?

well, the door, the door was open
but the gate, the gate was locked
well, the door, the door was open
but the gate, the gate was locked

in the black of my brain where the dust collects
lies the bank of my softest secrets
i am coming to you from my second year of solitude

do not stuff my mouth with your rubber checks
no more letters from your insane return address

well, the door, the door was open
but the gate, the gate was locked
well, the door
Track Name: Wall
lady, live easy
quit sleeping on the goddamn ceiling every night
just fall through

my burden, my baby
build it up, built it up
your life upon stilts
but you cannot watch green worlds from your windowsill

i am living just for fun
you are dying just to be done
that is the wall between us
there is a wall between us

what my love could do to you
oh, my love could level you
suddenly i got the blues
and they will not let me loose
Track Name: Body Builder
BODYBUILDER!
Track Name: Sundrench
gold sunday humming,
i got no body
come keep me steady
alone always
my head is syrup
is darkness and heavy

my jokes all sold
when winter broke
white pearl skin and your long green coat
like teeth, my fears pulled
when winter broke
your blue frye boots, your corduroy coat

with your circus sadness, and your street-worn feet
you lay your left love upon me
there's a burning ocean
there's a boiling sea
there is a sun drenched mountain
in every word that you speak
