about

"...We were led to who knows where.
Before us opened up, in mirage,
Towns constructed out of wonder,
Mint leaves spread themselves beneath our feet,
Birds came on the journey with us,
Fish leapt in greeting from the river,
And the sky unfurled above… "

First Dates
-Arseny Tarkovsky


This album was made over a years time in Nevada, Los Angeles and New York. It is dedicated to my mothers, my fathers, my friends and my lovers. Thank you for everything.

Track Name: Home Pt. 1 & 2
Don't know what I'm doing
I can't make up my mind
Can't see where I'm going
It's too dark outside
Why should I keep moving
There's no end in sight

The future is scary
It's so terrifying
Will I be buried
Or will I die in a fire
Don't worry about your problems
You're just waisting time

The world is so big now
It's hard not to feel alone
Without no direction
I don't know where I'll go
Don't worry about tomorrow
We'll find our way home
Track Name: Desire
Sorry
I didn't ask if I could leave your arms
I'm sorry
I didn't know that it would be so long
It's been awhile, she said, since I've known what was in your head

Worry
It doesn't matter if I sleep at night
Don't worry
You know that nothings going to be alright
It's been a crying shame, I don't know if I'll see you again

Fire
Oh the fire burns out so fast
Desire
There's no desire that would ever last
So I'll run away and I'll leave you to die in the flames
Track Name: The Unbearable Lightness of Being
It's been so many years since we've been friends
And after all this time I need you again
And I'd try
Oh I'd try
But I'd hurt myself again

Laugh for me just one more time again
Cause soon I know that all these things will end
And I'd try
Oh I'd try
But I'd hurt myself again

Never let me change my mind again
Because I don't think I'll every love again
And I'd try
Oh I'd try
But I'd hurt myself again
Track Name: Here's to the Afterlife
I didn't mean
For the rain to come
But it did
Now it's gone
I didn't ask
For all those tears
But you cried
and I cried

How weird

I didn't think
That you'd cut your hair
I didn't notice
And you cared
I think you're gorgeous
Without your hair
So I care
So who cares

Oh dear

Do you see
in the distance there
It's the future
Don't be scared
Don't run to fast
There's no way how
There's no way out
We're stuck here for now

Oh wow

I didn't mean for my scene to die
Rock n roll
Wave goodbye
But what about me
No I don't end
I'm a person
Not a fucking trend
Oh I'll never die
Oh I'll never die
I'll never die
I'll never die
(who is this guy)
I'll never die
(he is totally going to die any minute now )
I'll never die
Oh
Oh wait
Shit
(yep)
I think I just died
(you did, you did)
Fuck thats so embarrassing
I was just singing about how I was not gonna die and then I died
(You just keep running your mouth)
Wow this must be the afterlife
(yep)
It's so a cold here
(um hum)
Surprisingly cold It's like 9 degrees out
(yeah you better buy a jacket)
Well I guess
Here's to the afterlife.

Track Name: Home Pt. 3
Prepare yourself for stormy weather
Nothing gets much better in the rain

If she wants to go then let her
Off this runway train
There's no escape

Hold me
I can't go home
Control me
I'll do what you want

It's a fantasy of feeling
Everyday just feels the same

Our lives have lost all meaning
On this runaway train
This runaway

Hold me
I can't go home
Control me
I'll do what you want
Track Name: These Times Will Never Change
Got nowhere to go
Got nowhere to be
I'm running out of love
Running out of feeling

Running out of hope
For my generation
Got everything we know
But no motivation

Cause these times will never change and I feel strange waiting
These times will never change and I'm afraid of waiting
These times will never change and I feel strange waiting
These times will never change and I'm afraid of waiting
I'm jaded, oh baby

January's come
and January's go
Trying so hard
I never see the snow

Hit me with a flower
and shove it down your throat
You do it every hour
and I hope you fucking choke

Cause these times will never change and I feel strange waiting
These times will never change and I'm afraid of waiting
These times will never change and I feel strange waiting
These times will never change and I'm afraid of waiting
Track Name: My Motorcycle
Motorcycle help me run
From everything I've ever done
It's alright if you wanted to run, if you wanted to stay, if you wanted to get away
On my motorcycle
On my motorcycle
On my motorcycle there's the feeling I might go insane before I reach the places that I'd want to go

Motorcycle help me fly
Cause I'll never feel this way in life
It's alright if you wanted to cry, if you wanted to hold, if you wanted to hate me until I'm old
On my motorcycle
On my motorcycle
On my motorcycle there's the feeling I might go insane before I reach the places that I'd want to go

On my motorcycle
On my motorcycle
On my motorcycle there's the feeling I might go insane before I reach the places that I'd want to go
Track Name: don't be consumed
Hello there
In the trees
I don't know you
You don't know me
But you'll still hear what I have to say
I don't want to get out of here, but I can't stay
Cause the road is long and it gives and takes
But a little life is worth a little pain.
Track Name: In and Out of Love
I fell in and out of love
oh it was true again
I fell in and out of love
Only with you my friend

The way you make me shake
Oh it seeped through my skin
But it pierced the other side
And flew out into the wind

And as the days go by
Oh I'm afraid of when
I fall in and out of love
With someone new again
