about

Spring is near and that means another album! I've been sitting on this for a couple months but think it's finally ready after a winter of writing and recording. This album was sparked by the opening track and the couple other field recordings done in my temporary van home on Pender Island. After coming back to Toronto to spend time with friends and family over the winter I produced this project.

Now as I write this, eager to embark on my second tour across Canada with the lovely Kristi Hawkes and good friend Creek, I can't possibly begin to imagine all the lovely faces and wonderful adventures I will encounter, with these songs by my side.

Track Name: Out There
Where are we going from here?
and how have you been my dear?
It's been such a long time ago
where did the kid in me go?

To no longer be part of the masses
the city's dried out from garden to ashes
I can hear the pacific is calling my name

I've come so much farther in days
come clean since I've been away
and who takes the fall for the fallen?
I heard the other ones say

To no longer be part of the masses
the city's dried out from garden to ashes
I can hear the pacific is calling my name

Released the weight of a thousand ton giant
floated away on this creature covered island
I can hear the pacific is calling my name
Track Name: Dust
I watch my footprints disappear in the snow
as I thought to myself where did all the good times go
and I've been chained to the brink of destruction
for as long as I remember but you know how time moves so slow
and I've been dazed and confused
sitting on the couch at your house just vaguely hearing the news
how did we fuck up so bad in the first place?
I don't even know why I bother
looking at the state we're in

We're just dust upon a windowsill
we're just a flawed organization of a species that decided to kill
and I've been hoping for a better tomorrow
since the day I figured out there's no more hope left to borrow

All these thoughts that fly around in my head
make me feel so weak but it's not like I'm dead
like how I never wanna leave the house
cause there's faces all around me and they're crawling inside my head
it's got me dazed and confused
like being on the run from the law for something I didn't do
how did we fuck up so bad in the first place
I don't even know why I bother looking at the state we're in
Track Name: We Move Swiftly
If I could die slowly
in sleep in my dreams
take me to the mountains
throw me in the stream
if I could die quickly
in my home, my land
take me to the water
bury me in sand

With each breath I take
doubt slips from my mouth
air can't stop my hiding
smoke won't stop my doubt
there's builders and butchers
right outside my door
and I am but none of these
swift moving chords

Wake up wake up
what's new with you?
I'm out of love with myself
oh how that love was brand new

We move swiftly along.
