about

early band practice rough version. pretty sure this was the first night I brought this one to the table.

lyrics

one grain at a time
lifting weight from the stone
giving up to the wind
what aint mine to hold
can't tip the slope of the hill
gotta lessen the load

techtonic plates
aint got nothing on me
rearranging my face
grinding glacially
where I'm at right now
aint where I'm gonna be

get my needle stuck
on a particular note
swimming round and round
confusing ocean for moat
if the craft is sound
why not get in and row?

every step of the way
every bend of the fold
I'm breaking skin
crawling out of my mold
I aint the same
as I was before
what I am right now
tomorrow won't be no more

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here: eepurl.com/bcruFT

I post a song once a week on Tuesdays. If I've just finished a song I'll record a rough demo and put it up. Sometimes its live recordings or weird electro collages. I also make a video most weeks using public domain footage. Check it out!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my music!

Jon
