about

I wrote this album in a very short period of time, sometime between November and December of 2009. Lacking any money to buy my family gifts for the holidays, I decided to record these songs and give them away to everyone. It was recorded on December 23rd and Mixed on the 24th, burned to CD-R's for a few people and put up online for free download the next day.

The songs embody change, movement, and a similar feel throughout that brings back thoughts of nostalgia and peace. Images of winter, beer, laughter, and broomball pervade in my mind anytime I hear these songs.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Track Name: Holes in Them
there had been weather i,
found for us in the sky,
clouds and things
i thought your heart would sing for me,

i feel you in the trees,
i see you in my friends,
i hear you in the strings,
and swells in my heart for you,

things that you'd expect me to invent in my head,
like some fairy tale,
and when i'd fall asleep,
i could remember all the things,
i had promised to him,

cause i feel you in the trees,
i see you in my friends,
i hear you in the strings,
and swells in my heart,

she had some nerve to say all those things,
i save my eyes for him and his love,
i see his hands and feel holes in them,
i save my heart for him and his joy,
Track Name: Beaded Blood
stepping from the water and,
my feet they would stick to sand,
hang me upside down
and tell me i am not a man,

but what i hope is true,
and what i see is You,
and what i hope is true,
and what i dream is of You,

stopping in the dead of night,
my eyes they had shut out light,
when i had awoke the blood,
it had bead on His head,

but what i hope is true,
and what i see is You,
and what i hope is true,
and what i dream is of You.
Track Name: Cross Legged
my eyes were watered,
so my skin had now turned colors,
in winter wind,

i said "i need something to drink",
are we stopping with so much here?

i stuck a finger out of my sleeve,
to see if it would bring me back,
news of comfort and woolen clothes,
tidings of peace, of girls and of boys,

when i'd seen you,
then i looked up,
then i hesitate,
when i looked up,

i sit cross legged, my knees and my bones,
somehow relate it to things that i know,
if i dream of yellows and blues,
do i create it?
and do you stay?

when i'm 23.
when you looked at me,
when my skin,
when it stood on end.
Track Name: In 6/8
i tried to save my life,
and find myself a girl,
someone i could talk to,
when i'm alone,

so then i kicked and screamed,
and told You to give me things,
that i don't really need,
and "who am i"?

my voice was choked,
i couldn't believe You,



my voice was choked,
i couldn't believe Your Love.
