So It Goes 04:33
This ain't another in a long list of run and cover. It's just been awhile since I opened your file. There ain't no hatred, but I'm not about to say that I wish I waited. There ain't no excuse, acute or obtuse, that I wish I had used Like you used me. All used up. It's a sure thing when you call me up. You whisper my name and the things we left unsaid live in my mind. This life seems untameable and yet we live and know, and so it goes. So it goes. You gotta believe I'm stuck in the trees. Still I hear you when you slight my dreams. Thing are good up here. My spirit is clear. I ask myself can this be real. Oh no. I got sadness, and gladness, and god-bless the goddess who gave me this weakness and more. So I guess that's why some pain feels good. I guess that's why we take abuse sometimes. Like when you used me. All used up. It's a sure thing when you call me up. You whisper my name and the things we left unsaid live in my mind. This life seems untameable and yet we live and know, and so it goes. So it goes.

Somehow 04:25
Here's the way I want to stay for now. It's okay, my name's erased, somehow. I don't need to wonder where the rain fell down tonight. I was out walkin' 'round when you crossed my mind. Unprecedented lack of sound. Unconscious thoughts compound. Storm come quickly follow me. Show me my true mind. Here's the way I want to stay for now. It's okay, my name's erased, somehow. Somehow. Past no longer haunting me if I'm caught in a lie. Not I, not I. Walking streets so facelessly, far from appearing high. Silent bird of prey take flight hunt for me tonight. Alright Alright. Bring me personality, my true disguise. Here's the way I want to stay for now. It's okay, my name's erased, somehow. Somehow. Here's the way I want to stay for now. It's okay, my name's erased, somehow. Somehow.

about

This album was recorded over the past two years with the help of all of my generous and talented friends. I can't count the number of different rooms and recording setups that were used over these two years. I used the free time given to me by covid19 to pursue the release of this project.

In this release I wanted to revisit some sounds and styles that I experimented with in my first album, with the addition of violin. I'll always look back on that first record fondly.
