about

In loving memory of Vaughn Simpson Charles. This album is dedicated to all of the fantastic people in my life.

Special thanks to:
-Florian Tinschert, for use of his recording microphone, for stealing his roommate's Yamaha steel-string and letting me borrow it for this record, along with his peculiar Squier Stratocaster (which can be heard on "Idle Talk" and "Elysian Fields").
-Nelson Santos and Tim Mansell for extensive previewing, advice, and for providing constructive criticism for all tracks. You guys were the second pair of ears for this album.
-Aston Grieco, for taking it upon herself to create a visual universe for the music to exist within!
-All my friends and loved ones for their support and advice, for putting up with me, and taking care of me (the result of my own stupidity) on multiple occasions.

Track Name: Woodland (Intro)
Headfirst into forests, bleak and dry
barren in disguise, frigid highs
Track Name: The Pendant You Wear
Run, stay
Remember, you're loved by your roots

We're off to soak in this rain
Let the cold stream down my veins
I pray she won't forget this day
We're off to soak in this rain

Stay, remember the pendant you wear
Run, stay
Remember, you're loved by your roots

We're off to soak in this rain
Memories flash like photoplays
Rivers tasted, Summer days
We're off to soak in this rain

Run, stay
Remember, you're loved by your roots
Stay
I'll remember the pendant you wore
Track Name: Dead Limbs of Winter
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Ghost Story
I don't know why
these are recurring fears of mine
scared to be awake
fast asleep, I hold my breath

I don't wanna lie
thoughts make me terrified
scared to be asleep,
far too numb to shut my eyes

I submit myself, I can hold my own
I submit myself, I can hold my oath

Ghosts come in dreams,
fingers cold against my spine
I don't know why
these are recurring fears of mine

I submit myself, I can hold my own
Track Name: Raccoon
I hate to see you off
L.A.; I'll see you there

I'm waiting patiently
L.A.; I'll see you there
Track Name: The Fog (Angels)
Angelic voices whisper melodies
right through me

All in time, they won't remember
they won't recall
I whisper, entombed

Angelic voices whisper melodies
right through me

All in time, they won't remember
they won't recall
I whisper, entombed
Track Name: Idle Talk
Praise be unto those who taste
Stuck on isolated isles

Pray and plead for all the different talk,
the good things heard
Corners collapse, my mistakes and all
I'm well aware

When the Summer ends,
and cans collect along the walls
I'll know the answer then;
I'll know my right from wrong

This is more than we can shake
Wash away and find my shade

Pray and plead for all the different talk,
the good things heard
Corners collapse, my mistakes and all
I'm well aware
Track Name: Elysian Fields
You know I won't tread too far
This is your chance to roam

I won't try to clip your wings
It's your sky, go be free
You know I won't tread too far
This is your chance to roam
I can't change your mind
and I can't read your mind
Track Name: Anastasia
Wish I had it in me
to hold my breath
your smile's fading
everyday, a thinner chance to come up to you

I wish I could take my time, Anastasia

See you sigh and close your eyes,
hesitation
Then I'm cold and dead inside;
you feel so alive
I can't even say I tried,
nerves tripped me up again

You are always in your prime, Anastasia
Track Name: Spirits of Leo
Rolling out this pain I know
was it real, or was it show?
Feeling rushed and breathing slow

Time and time and time again
I look back at where I've been
Close my eyes and watch you go

Veins in my arms hold me back
What good does patience do me?

That was then and this is now
I can't bring myself around
Because feelings come, and feelings go

What you want may never change,
but what you need won't stay the same
for all the time you wait in vain

If trepidation holds me back,
what good will patience do me?
