about

The inevitable degradation of the hapless romantic, whose rose-tinted delusions of the past saturate his alternate reality, cultivating expectations of the future that are unrealistic and insurmountable.

With this personal constitution there is vulnerability, and an inherent inability to cope with the often disappointing present.

Expectation is the mother of disappointment, and so the romantic digs a tomb from which he cannot escape, where his headstone stands, composed of a life's divested essence.

Track Name: Kamala
Fleeting pirouette
Her heel grinds the ground
With one single pinch
She lifts a tired town

Held to the chest
Two birds of a feather
Half and Half Husk
Our words on a tether

Bound cinnamon rim
American Spirit lush
My soul, solute
To the brew of her blush

In our nest of time
Once again we part
My name on my mug
Her name on my heart
Track Name: Carraway
The whispering winds
Love to kiss your naked shins
As you touch my fingertips
To your rose petal lips

The summer had fallen
And so had the leaves
The day I begged you
To Stanton Beach

Tall grasses
And fields of grain
Led to a scene
Framed in Obsidian rain

Raw Umber
Beneath our toes
As the old Rogue’s dock
Ebbs and Flows

The summer had fallen
And so had the leaves
The day I begged you
To Stanton Beach

Towards the water
Hand in hand
As the clay below
Slowly turns to sand

So I drop down to one knee
And ask my very best girl
To marry me

The summer had fallen
And so had the leaves
The day I begged you
To Stanton Beach
I know I’ll never
Forget that day
The day I stole your heart
And we ran away
