about

The majority of this album was recorded during the summer of 2010, with various bits and pieces recorded over the preceding half-decade or so. As the writing of the songs spanned this same period of time, there is an eclectic mix of genres and inspirations here, from folk, to electronica, to pop-rock, to some sort of Celtic-inspired jig/waltz, as well as a varying mix of instrumentation.

Track Name: Avalanche Warnings
In this state, it's running blind
Take care not to slip
Wouldn't want the snowball effect
Applying to you
Be careful; take care

It isn't dark but it isn't much better
I'm making out shapes
Now they're looking like letters
Maybe words
Nevermind, I've lost it
I wasn't careful; I didn't take care

I can feel it in the snow
In the snow I can feel it
This mountaintop's not stable
I'm dying to heal it
I can feel it in the snow
In the snow, in the snow
Then I can't feel a thing
In the snow I can't feel it
In the snow I can't feel it
In the snow I can't feel it
In the snow I can't...
Track Name: Pen to Paper
I had every intention
Of writing you a damn good, damn good song
Something catchy and happy
To pick you up when your face gets long

But when I was writing this one
I kept getting distracted
I kept getting distracted
'Cause I wanted to kiss you lying next to me
Well I don't know how you'd think I'd keep my pen to paper

We just work, we just work
We just work, you see
Like indie songs in care commercials on TV

It's all about the blending of the new stuff
With the old stuff
With the genuine
Well I don't know how you'd think I'd keep my pen to paper

Or maybe it's just about the genuine
Well I don't know how you'd think I'd keep my pen to paper
Well I know how you'd think...
Track Name: Still Shine
It was up on the roof above your house
That I first saw those bright stars
So far
But they still shine

From front to back and side to side
It moves me in the worst kind of way
Oh say you know it's right

I don't suppose I've come too close
To notice all the spots in your eyes
They don't mind
They still shine
Track Name: Wanderin'
If I go wanderin' 'morrow morn'
Will you come wanderin' with me?
O'er dales and o'er sunny hills
'Til we come wanderin' home
Track Name: Haunted (The Perils of Not Travelling at All)
There's something telling me that I don't wanna be here
There's something telling me that I don't wanna stay, well
Call it the jitters, call me restless, call it superstition, but
I've had it up to here with this place

Not like there's banshees hiding out in my bathroom
Not like there's phantoms writhing up through the floor, but
Well, I could swear that clock is moving too quickly, and I, well
I think I just heard a knock at the door

But there's no one here, and
Neither should I be

Well, I'm convinced they put a spell on these walls
When I'm between them I can't seem to do, well
Anything at all, my brain gets painfully small, and my
Oh my ambition all but slows to a stall

'Cause there's no one here,
Neither should I be

Well, I've got to escape
Well, I've got to escape

There's something telling me that I don't wanna be here
There's something telling me that I don't wanna stay, well
Call it the jitters, call me restless, call it superstition, but
I've had it up to here with this place

'Cause there's no one here,
Neither should I be
Track Name: The Ghost of J.S. Bach
The ghost of J.S. Bach resides
Inside the organs at St. Thomas Church
If you listen, you can hear him play
His overwhelming melodies
With counterpoint to die for
Echo softly through the pews and
Deep into your soul

The ghost of J.S. Bach resides
Inside the organs at St. Thomas Church
And if you're quiet, you can hear him sing...

The ghost of J.S. Bach is shy
That's why he hides inside the organ pipes
Where he listens to the sounds of Leipzig
His well-trained ear will catch
The subtlest of noises
From all across the city
A cacophonous chorale

The ghost of J.S. Bach is shy
He hides inside the pipes and won't come out
But if you're quiet, you can hear him sing...

The ghost of J.S. Bach resides
Inside the organs at St. Thomas Church
If you listen, you can hear him play
His overwhelming melodies
With counterpoint to die for
Echo softly through the pews and
Deep into your soul
