about

Written and recorded in Jesse's Attic (Vancouver) while looking after Snickers during the first two weeks of January 2016. Thank you to Mariessa McLeod for fixing up the mix, Raincity Recorders for the microphone, and Pho Chau for H1. Some friends came over, hung out, and made some sounds. That was nice. The neighbours were patient through 3AM recording sessions and imperfect drum takes. That was also nice.

Track Name: OLD SOLES
take this end pull it tight, uh huh
through the loop
a rabbit ear
listen

i need old soles
ones that have died before
i need old soles

soggy bottom, double knot, uh huh
in the cellar
someone forgot
see

i need old soles
ones that have died before
i need old soles
Track Name: SUPER STITION
so why hold on to superstition
i still can't tell which ear is ringing

and i'm on my hands and knees for weeks
climb the stairs
blow smoke in the trees

so why hold on to superstition
i still can't tell which ear is ringing

and i feel the heat on my hands
burning bridges
coming from both ends

so why hold on to superstition
i still can't tell which ear is ringing

the crystal ball has been caught in the haze
now i climb stairs
spend the rest of my days

i've given up on superstition
now my ears have stopped ringing

and i'm on my hands and knees for weeks
climb the stairs
blow smoke in the trees
so why hold on to superstition
i still can't tell which ear is ringing
so why hold on to superstition
Track Name: WIREPROOF
i'm seeing double today again
i'm seeing double today again

hide the wire
proof of escape
if its found
we'll have to stay

unlatch the door
but don't run
hold your breath
until its done

they found the wire
closed off the escape
the door was latched
so we stayed
Track Name: HOMEBOT
it always happens in the winter time, when daylight hours escape to night
hide away out of sight, like the rabbit coat that turns to white
hide your face so no one can see, little medal of misery
these dried eyes and crooked teeth are the only decent company
these dried eyes and crooked teeth are misery's sweet company

until you feel it in your bones
hollow bones
feels like control loosens

some say it will pass with a turn of the dial, my head says it might be a while
from this window below the street, there's shadows of moving feet
from this window below the street, feel the traffic run over me

it always happens to be in the winter time, daylight hours escape tonight
you hide away out of sight, it always happens to be in the winter time
you feel it in your bones
hollow bones
feels like control loosens
Track Name: SEND ME H1
sit anywhere you like
choose a table with some light
pull the leaves off the stem, wool and water dry, come let me in

there's a reason i'm the tree
so the starved can't see me
the leaves fall off the stem
seasons change
reasons sprout
give the water some time, come let me out

send me H1
i don't need other words
there are no other words
so let me hear your words

send me H1
i don't need other words
there are only those words
let me hear your words

love ain't starved and thin, once you let it in
i don't need other words
