about

We're getting close to done with the new album. Here's another preview.

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

roll away the moss
motion shakes off debris
everything you lost
is something that you don't need
sometimes getting crushed
is just getting free

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
