about

This album has undergone many large transformations in its lifetime. I started writing these songs when I moved to college, and finished them 4 years later when I came home.
I strived both to push myself and limit myself on this release. All recording was done straight into my macbook or with the help of an sm58 microphone, making a sort of lo-fi feel without being a challenging listen. I played all the instruments, did all of the artwork, and all of the recording, mixing, and mastering myself, in order to have another album that I can truly call a 'solo album'.
These songs come from a very dark place in my life, while I was dealing with mental illness and difficult life situations. Songs about loss, painful memories, and growing from them. I hope you like them.

Track Name: Best Of You
I come down fast I'm on my knees
Scratches to prove that I am fair
I wouldn't say I'm on your side
Stashes of faith oversupplied

You missed my body bleeding fine
You always knew what to avoid
You'll never make it just in time
I know you never even tried

You always get the best of me
I never see the best of you
Track Name: Smooth
The sun comes up on the side of your leg
Everything it touches glistening
I've been around quite a while now but
Before this I have never felt a thing

My memories regressed, the problem addressed
My brain can't handle all my sins of youth
I've witnessed wonders the world over
My aching bones have never felt so smooth
Track Name: Human
Faces with layers of skin
Limbs that have a place to begin
Reflexes with a place and a time
And words that I'm not sure are still mine

Feel around in the dark, beauty tied to be stark
This time there is no fight, I'm human and humans need light

I see people expand and relax in the ways they belong
Completely confident knowing their will will hold strong
Not getting behind and not living inside the wall
Not falling forward at anything happening small
They have faces with layers of skin
Limbs that have a place to begin
Reflexes with a place and a time
And I'm aching, oh I'm falling behind

Feel around in the dark, beauty tied to be stark
This time there is no fight, I'm human and nothing seems right
Track Name: Mean
This is farther than out of place, this is closer to hell
With the things being taken, wish I'd lost sense of smell
This is cleaner than surgery, this is cut to the core
Does this mean you won't follow my tracks anymore?

Does this mean that you're leaving? Are you saved or am I?
Saved from having to suffer or saved from having to try?
Is this what has to happen? Its so hard to be sure
Does this mean you won't follow my tracks anymore?
Track Name: Where I Am Going
Out of all the things surrounding me that matter
Tape decks papers notebooks business better
Press eject open pages never things that make it seem like I've
Got my shit together

And I know I'm still unsure of where I am going

Everything in the house is stale or moldy
You can tell that nobody's eaten here in weeks
As the norm my first insight is selfish
But the house still lives and still needs to survive

But here I sit in a car that isn't' mine
Window down at least a peaceful drive
And I wonder how it will take to get to where I am going
Lights on heater up in the woods and its snowing
How long does it take until everything is Green And Growing
And I wonder how long it will take to get to where I am going

I'm sitting alone in the living room late at night
And the only thing I see is little specks of light
Floating into the world from the outside
Where the sky is dark and the wind the wind is still blowing
And I wonder how long it will take to get to where I am going
