    Odd Petals, a screen-printing outfit from Sacramento, CA, approached me about making very organic CD sleeves for a physical release of this EP. As my first printed form of music for my solo work, I loved the idea of carrying the home-made theme. Thus all the text is hand-written, the sleeves and lyric sheets are screen-printed directly onto the sleeve stock, and the artwork was designed by the wonderful Billy Sours. A lot of work went into their creation, but the finished product is beautiful.

lyrics

If I just sit here out of focus,
Can we at least still-frame our aging?
Error in mindset, err in motion
Listen how those raised in their cage won’t sing

If you look past my attention span
Will you recall where we used to stare
Where we used to give our focus
There must be somewhere else you dream of

Authored in reverse,
Our waking signaled a now unresolved
Skew of stature
Our walls grew ever nearer

Nothing was there when you
Asked of its nature, you asked of its ire
You asked of us open, open, open but
There was nothing

Underneath our capture
We saw light bend through the surface
As we sank, as we dove deeper

Howl, oh the wind tore over
As we lied frozen on the hill we climbed
To watch our houses shrink in darkness
(bringing in the ill in darkness)

Lied still and there recalled
The sapling sprouting through the earth
And steel and stone, so gradual
It grew through anything
(bringing in the ill through anything)

We came to believe if we set there,
If we stayed there
Enough for it to have sprouted through
The dirt, the earth,
The skin under our shirt, our tissue
Through our muscles through our
Ribcage before our organs or
Our spinal cord
And all the way through it grew, it grew
And it protruded
Several feet high as there we lied,
So there we lie
It came to come true, we fed its roots,
We bore its fruit
From then there was nothing we could do
Except to have just moved

Move
Apart, apart
Nearer, nearer
What grew
In us
In us
You knew
You knew
You knew
