about

Back in the fall, on our way east for a run of shows, our faithful van finally kicked the bucket in Saint Louis. We were there in STL for a few days and figured we would use the time to make something positive out of a less than ideal situation. Those are the songs that make up this EP, named after a street a couple blocks from where our van decided it had done all it could. This is a fun set of songs that we hope you'll enjoy!

Track Name: Figure
Go ahead and make that heaven
It's crystal cups and linen halters
Views of a pew in a Gaudi fold
So hand on hand to break your manners
And quiet curses in your languish
Crooks on the rail try to steal your name
You guard your heart, you find your heaven
You guard your heart, you find your heaven

Late that night when you crashed to the ground
As the smoke was trailng, it was spinning all around
It wrapped around you and it choked you all the way down
and it put you in your bed
So the trees gave way, leaves were pouring into mounds
Cause I'm a sailor, I was crazed, and you were what I found
I wrapped around you and I choked you all the way down
And i put you in your bed

Go ahead and make that heaven
It's crystal cups and linen halters
You guard your heart, you find your heaven
You guard your heart, you find your heaven
Track Name: Scatterbuzz
Put the name back on the story
Speak for the house I squatted in
Follow the gale aimed at Chicago
Lead the way, lead the way
It's gonna tear up every shingle
It's gonna crack tar, strip the nail.
You'll circle up out in the vacuum
Aiming like shrapnel in the air

Our words are not enough
The eye sees, The mind knows
But it's a car crash
And all our journo scatter-buzz

You'll dig a hole out in your garden
Turn on the hose and let it run
And when your boots and wounds are rotten
See the grave, see the grave
Put the name back on the story
Speak for the house I squatted in
Follow the gale aimed at Chicago
Lead the way, lead the way

Our words are not enough
The eye sees, The mind knows
But it's a car crash
And all our journo scatter-buzz
And the heart feels
There lie the Americans
But it's a muted play
Track Name: Ruffians
Hour in, days expired and you're lying
like a billion-dollar bank, used to feel like a ruffian
I'm holding out hope in the ad hoc of your youth

But your idol's fallin down and his feet made of brittle clay and iron
won't hold to the hoarfrost coming
You been holding out hope in the ad hoc of your youth

I can't see at all, but ooh you're next to know your name.

You don't have the docs or the drugs or the money now to set your brain straight got your friends seeing something but,
I'll tell you what, if I knew what it was, then I damn well would.
'cause I'll believe anything you want me to.
Put your hands on me, I need you more than I want to.

I can't see at all, but ooh you're next to know your name.

Cuz I'll believe anything you want me to.
Put your hands on me, I need you more than I want to.
Track Name: AC
AC swallowed it up, cools all gone now
heat and sweat, it's a wasteland expanding
cant you tell by the breath I expel how
there's a rhyme and a reason to dwelling

once you've left, when I've fled be aware of
the perpetual state of contrition
on the boudoir a notebook is resting
which contains the remains of admission

lonely nights aren't that alluring
company abandons worry

AC swallowed it up, but it left some
tucked away in my lungs all inflated
cant you tell by the breath I've expelled how
I've done all that i can to restrain it
Track Name: Jacob
I got that raw from out of the garden, push that knowledge through my fingertips
auction it as product, body consciousness in increments
holy roller nausea, put fire to these sentences
lost but now I'm found, the hand of G-d in all this penmanship
manifest the manuscript, patterned for whom imagine it
master craftsman, I'm after what matters, the masses gathered in
jabberjawin', spawn the embodiment of a hypocrite
no need for alarm, we're all bound to that swinging pendulum
let us be remembered in honor if we are blessed to win
lest our legacy be made fodder & thrown to settlement
"Gone But Not Forgotten" we commonly pose to settle it
if death is all you conjure, the scythe is a force you reckon with
cypher with fallen angels, the jargon I quote is heaven sent
hip displaced from socket & part of me knows I'll never win
livin' out of pocket, you hardly absorb embarassment
all I want is a blessing, the kind with no noted precedent
Track Name: Push
Push, take me on
I won't lie
I've been feigning for your
Touch, I'm coming by
Aint No heavy feelin
Gon hesitate me baby

Still, crumbling light
Buy me time,
if you buy me anything
Close up, magnified
Keeps the water at my knees
In an ocean full of grief now honey

You know me, seamless
Gotta find semblance
I want a whole mirage
Blacked out and wrapped in gauze
Take off the curtain
Take your abandon
Just leave me bed and wall
Fall on your levee ground

Push, I'm on the wall
It's coming down
And you are all that I can
See it's morning now
Ain't no heavy feeling
Gon hesitate me

You know me, seamless
Gotta find semblance
I want a whole mirage
Blacked out and wrapped in gauze
Take off the curtain
Take your abandon
Just leave me bed and wall
Fall on your levee ground
And if you feel it,
Act like you feel it
I see you sulking on
I see your burdened heart
But it's not some challenge,
It don't make you valient,
So come on and take me on
You know I been feigning for you
Track Name: Candy
Agree to follow the night, and carry us in your belly
Probably wont hurt, but it might
tear you apart from the inside

'cause the outside is wild, severe and decidedly cruel
Recognized for the lives it's determined to ruin
I've seen loss in the eyes of an animal strewn

Hey, I remember the highway, the markings, the dizzying sights,
speeds, tried to read for distraction, but constantly falling at night

We gave whatever we had
for a stranger to rearrange your inner workings
only so long of a plan to attempt at
could have tempted that

with an informal grip meant to slip
to shift into the streets
premature, overworked
we overlooked you
we overworked you
we overlooked you
we overworked you
we overworked you

Hey, I remember the highway, the markings, the dizzying sights,
speeds, tried to read for distraction, but constantly falling at night

Agree to follow the night and carry us in your belly
probably wont hurt, but it might --yea it will yeah it might
tear you apart from the inside

'cause the outside is wild, severe and decidedly cruel
Recognized for the lives it's determined to ruin
