about

Where is everyone right now? I'm at a ceramic table in Carrboro, procrastinating, drinking tea, and writing this. Gabe is in Miami, probably teaching what he teaches. Phil's in a lab, free after 7 - as usual. Nate's almost certainly in an office at school, coding; free never. I don't know where Patrick is. Where's the other Gabe that helped us write and record these eight songs? Maybe in the library or at his house, trying to focus, but unable to do so - RIP.

To our family and friends, and to those who we don't know personally, you've kept us inspired and have helped us move forward since we released our first record just over a year ago. Thank you a million times over for pushing us through walls of necessary but potentially murderous doubt.

Thanks for sticking with us.

Track Name: Moon Breath
Moon head, follow down. No matter, no man.
Moon breath.

Frosted in the climb, mellow in time Moon Breath.
Track Name: Well Aware
Sideaway, fragrant. Gronina heron.
I love you most then and there,
lay you close everywhere.
Track Name: Eyes Like Troubled Dreams
Some day you'll come home, you'll find me alone.
You'll ask me, "Where did you go?"
I was not too far, just a little behind pace.
Resting none, changed my face.

You are, you are...
all unmade.

How high is the price? I won't bargain with you.
I could kiss you in a minute.
Tread soft at my door.
I can feel you in an instant, kiss you in a minute.
Track Name: Temper
Darling, how did you learn to roll?
Time well spent learning to see your own.

How that dew wrings its head, how I lay you to bed.
How it walks in the end, how it tells me instead.

You severed my tongue in play.
You're doing it all again. You let go, doing it all again.
Track Name: It's Unreal
When I breathe in the grass comes with me. When I breath out a face is forming and the tallest branches wave to me and say hello.
Though I can not see what's real, it's enough to only feel hands against my back, back to the ground.
Focus it seems far off. I want to embrace your love.

We're doing nothing again, but still we are.
Our heads come together but my head is so far.

Thought is rising constantly. Feel your orange waves come over me.
Nothing exists but open infinity.
Though I can't see what's real, it's enough to only feel hands against my back, back to the ground.
Track Name: Needs
When will you get out of my head? When can I wake up in the morning instead of every few hours?
A full night of rest is my only request.
No more inviting arms to put me to bed in the car.
A full night of rest in my own bed.
No more advice from others. No more enticing lovers.
A full night of rest in my own bed.
Track Name: Farah
Farah, I was born in the sun, forgotten.
Nothing I own, only yours.
You are all of my sight.

Dear and waiting, I once felt motionless.
Nothing I own, only yours.
You are all of my sight.
Track Name: Lily Molusco
Lily, give me your love so I won't be alone.
Thomas, find all your steps. Lay down your head to rest.
