Recorded in the Spruce Caboose attic summer of 2011. Originally released on "In Worship" a limited tour CDR.


Mother, cover me. I don't want to die here in your arms. I wanna sail away, far flung from the borders of this earth, our colony. I wanna strip down bare to my core, it's just I can't feel it there anymore. Why can't I feel it there anymore? Here i lie, my body is empty. I am tied to the stone and still will not sink. Take my hand, pull me down. I don't wanna die alone. I don't wanna think that maybe we are all washed up. I am breaking from the jet stream. I know it's not the way I just can't seem to catch the waves as they flow and fold over me. It's these timeless emotions, all the moments we forget who we are. Fake it all you want, it'll never add up to something more real. Maybe we were star crossed and that's all it was.

Strange folk from West Philadelphia.

Too weird for the mainstream.
