about

this ep was recorded in my bedroom on garageband sometime between june and september 2012. i wrote these songs about the seasons changing and having no control at all. a harvest moon represents new beginnings and rebirth and the moon throwing up is the uneasiness we feel along with that/some goofy image i thought i saw stuck on my bicycle.

special thanks to my song team buddies for inspiring me to record more. also thanks to my sister hannah for writing the chorus to 'going for the fall' with me so many years ago!

Track Name: wishful thinkin'
We believe the impossible makes us.
Wishful thinkin' that we aren't alone.
Harvest moon and a drive home in darkness.
Sun rises and we still aren't honest.

We believe the impossible makes us.
Wishful thinkin' that i could be strong.
Winter tears are slippin' out the hardest.
Sun rises and we still aren't honest.
Track Name: praying mantis
Praying mantis is here
Who knows why but it’s clinging to my bathroom ceiling.
As soon as it appeared,
I could never seem to escape this feeling.

Praying mantis, it knows,
Every single mistake that I really want to make.
Sleeping in my dirty clothes
It weaves through and swivels its head to watch me make my bed.

Its body’s dead and brown
To camouflage in
With the leaves on the ground.
It’s the seasons for change,
So it prays for something,
Like waning to be free.
You’re praying for something
And maybe it’s me.

Praying mantis it has
Two ugly clawing arms out reaching towards me, now.
It watches me as
I’m turning all the knobs on the shower, steppin’ into hot water.

Its body’s frail and light
Internal skeleton
Now dead and behind
It’s the season for change.
So it prays for something
Like wanting to be new.
And I’m praying for something
And maybe it’s you.
Track Name: in the moon
I'm not afraid of you.
Just of your feet and where they go to.
I'm not afraid of you.
Just of your roads and where they'll lead you.
Soon, so soon.

I'll be waiting in the moon.
Across the farmlands in June.
I'll be waiting in the moon.
Track Name: going for the fall
Cars line up to meet the city’s face.
I’ve seen many in the past 10 days.
Sky is graying and the buildings sway,
So tired of roads, so tired of space.

And I’m goin for the fall
And I’m goin for the fall
Cuz it’s hard to dance with another when another’s on your mind X2

We’ve arrived and I can finally breathe
All the smog that I could ever need.
My body aches as you walk towards me.
The way we greet is such a painful thing.

Cuz we’re goin for the fall
Cuz we’re goin for the fall
And it’s hard to dance with another when another’s on your mind X2
And it’s hard to chance a one true love cuz they’re so hard to find,
But it’s just hard to dance with another one when another’s on your mind.

Windy city leave me brick and bones,
Nighttime party as the mighty L moans.
A long, planned journey and we’re almost home,
But you won’t stay here and now I finally know.

That I’m goin for the fall
That I’m goin for the fall
And we’re goin for the fall.
