about

5 new songs just popped up fast in my basement, they seem to fit together well. All super short pop demo tunes recorded lo-fi with just two tracks of drums (two mics)... I kept it really raw and simple, just catching the song fish that are swimming around in my head.

Track Name: This is heavy for everyone
Theres no wishing Belton back to Brierwood
His sticks and stones have all been thrown
He's Made a mess he's picking up
all the pieces that have fell out of his heart
its a start and you got to start somewhere

There's no erasing all the battle scars
The's no forgetting what's been done
This is heavy for everyone

But his life still feels like the bomb
Theres no more war there's only songs
A dog that keeps him on the level
While his mind is running with the ghosts

There's no erasing all the battle scars
The's no forgetting what's been done
This is heavy for everyone
Track Name: In the art of Hope and release
I feel like the rain man
coded like a language that no one else uses at all
Helpless to communicate
Words lost in my head
in the art of Hope and release

I wanted to learn to catch a fish
but found radiation killed the river
before I bought the pole

I feel like the rain man
coded like a language that no one else uses at all
Helpless to communicate
Words lost in my head
in the art of Hope
Track Name: To The Field
To the field love
Run away from pain
This is the path that takes us to the edge of time
These lines never blur

And the deep breath
That shows us we are never alone
For even a second
Tho reality feels its caving in
We have this place

To the field love
to the field
run away from the pain
Track Name: Sunshine Valley
Mr zing had a proper big bell
Turned it into mind pop
Telling all the news bit
Gathering the sold tops
Tethering the rain drops
Never mind the cyclops
Living on the hill tops

Sunshine Valleys had its ups n downs

Muscular and bridge like
Teller of the Klondike
Best we heed the led pipe
Molecules of stalagmites

Temperatures are better now that summers on the way

Sunshine Valleys had its ups and downs

Turning the heads of state
A state of upside down
No one wears a purple crown
Track Name: Bird Man
In the park
Miles away
Theres a circus
There's no rain
But the sun makes traveling

Bird man walking sky above
These things stirring, lessons, love
& The mysterys just a dream
The rainbow walks The village clean
The are no backstreets No ones mean
Everyone has bird man wings

This is everyone's awake
There's nothing there
Be not afraid
In the midst of your parade
Is just a walk we all must brave
