    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

Wait for something
Wait for snowfall
Wait for something to change without shaping,
Bait our escaping,
Wave out your window
Wave at your house as you go,
As you drive on

Cold glow cresting mountains in the distance,
Owed no fulcrum of a sunrise
Felt like if we just kept going…

Waited for something
But nothing was different

You thought it was hardest
Just watching your breath
So you waited for sunlight
But nothing was different

You thought it was hardest
Just fearing regret
So you settled on nothing
But nothing was different

You thought it was hardest
To sit in the darkness
So night after night
After night after night
You would dream of the sidewalk
And dream of the oak tree
And dream of the parking garage
Where you whisper
And wait for an echo

Wait by the table
Stalled fragile footsteps
I tried to stop it
Backs to each other
Sealed attic window
So glad you called

Hurried indices, off sincerity
Air on your shoulders
View from the top floor
Study the ceiling


Stayed by the front door
How we'd never see there was nothing
Each time we freeze
I started "I...I...
(wait there for someone)
I mean, I don't..."
Soft it fell
Out our window

Anvil swallow to hide a need
Waited, but there wasn't any
Cold glow cresting over
To grant us our shadows
(I've tried to reach you)
Tethered to a light
On which we can't rely
(but I just dreamt of going)

(waited for nothing, waited for nothing
Thought it was hardest
Just to keep thinking
Just to keep focus
Keep us from sinking
Thought it was hardest
Just to keep drifting
Keep us from focus
Keep us from thinking
Found it was hardest
Just to keep waking
Just to keep waking
Just keep decaying
Waiting for nothing
Waiting to come apart)

Fulcrum stitch seam
Float beneath us
Grow between us
Apart
Apart
