Kristian R. Amazing to find this on Bandcamp. An album that took me a while to get used to, back then, and that grew to be one of my all-time favorites ever, I can't stop listening to these tracks (and for whichever reasons some of them seem pretty much tied to this particular time of year). Dense, moody, a masterpiece. Favorite track: Colorblind.

On a beach twenty yards from the roadside Back again 6 AM far from sleep Must be 290 Blue on the water It's gray to me 3 CV is all I see Green can only hold you in the garden Too much red will go right to your head But if it's all the same to you Give me back my blue Other colors fade anyway I'm colorblind three way tragedy Pantone memory grayscale eyes Maybe i'm paranoid yeah that's my problem You almost have to be when you look like me Stopped in the shade of a road sign When the sun rose like a bomb Tried to read the simple writing But the letters came out wrong It's all white lines to me But things are getting clearer I can almost read the writing in the mirror I'm colorblind three way tragedy Pantone memory grayscale eyes Maybe i'm paranoid yeah that's my problem You almost have to be when you look like me Green can only hold you in the garden Too much red will go right to your head But if it's all the same to you Give me back my blue Other colors fade anyway I'm colorblind freeway tragedy Pantone memory x-ray eyes Where'd all the color go on my radio? You almost have to be a satellite to see.

Me & Judas lost at sea Under electric twilight fading I look at him he sees through me 40 days and we're still waiting I'm not tired but i think i'll lay back anyway I'm not welcome but i think i'll stay Me & Jonas lost at sea Deep inside a dream we're trailing Heard him whisper wait for me Sun goes down and we're still sailing I'm not nervous but i think i'll lay back anyway I'm not helpless but i think i'll stay And even the waves won't carry me away Keep heading west that's the best May be lost but i'm not crazy Stay where you are not too far Keep it up you're doing fine Well i thought i was fine Me & Joseph lost at sea Under rain and slowly waking He looks around and smiles at me 41 and we're still waiting I'm not tired but i think i'll lay back anyway I'm not hopeless but i think i'll stay And even the waves won't carry me away

Last night hit the net Woke up in a sweat Same scene different dream sudden ending Grabbed a pillow and covered my head Kicked the phone off the side of the bed Tried to sing but the damn thing kept on ringing I know I'll go to mexico Some place nothing changes Maybe i'll call on the phone Maybe i'll write you a letter That's what i meant when i said goodbye Backed the shovelhead out of the shed Hit the interstate hard heading left The street below is water flowing undertow There's a song that i'd rather forget But i don't think i've shaken it yet As soon as i do I'm gonna write us another one I know I'll go to mexico Someplace nothing changes Maybe i'll call on the phone Maybe i'll write you a letter That's what i meant when i said goodbye I know I'll go to mexico Someplace nothing changes Maybe i'll call on the phone Maybe i'll write you a letter Maybe i'll die maybe i'll learn how to fly That's what i meant when i said

I was half outside and half inside a dream When i thought i heard your voice on my machine Sang along had the song almost memorized Liked the track so i laid back and let it fossilize (i've got all of this on video It just gets better every episode) America i was blind but now i see America right there in front of me Lost my head in my hotel room when the ground shook Had to choose between the bible and the phone book You're never home but that's okay It's so much easier that way 'cause i can't tell it to your face in real time anyway America i was blind but now i see America right there in front of me And it makes no sense to me Unless i see it on t.v. So just launch that satellite And get it right America i was blind but now i see America right there in front of me And it makes no sense to me Unless i see it on t.v. So just launch that satellite And get it right (sometimes the answer just comes) (sometimes the answer just comes)

Fly blackbird fly Frozen the sea i see you Old cover clouds new snow there they go Silent but wings Sun orange small i see you Nowhere is home go alone and alone Fly angel fly Older than me i feel you Coalcovered clouds white snow there you go Heard myself call Far from them all i feel you Left them behind or ahead and he said Sooner or later you get up off the floor When no one wants to hear it anymore Someday soon you're gonna get up off the floor 'cause no one wants to hear that shit Cry blackbird cry over the waves i hear you Coalcovered clouds white snow there they go Ice on your wings songless he sings i hear you Nowhere is home go alone there's a phone

Tell me something stupid Auction off my diary Life is getting esoteric Let me in your movie Each time i walk out the door Someone mixes metaphors Life is so much cleaner on the page It's like the morning when i'm dreaming And everything is so pristine It's just a seven hour movie And i'm in every scene Let me in my t.v. Get this tape to tori Got to have a subplot When i sell them my life story Maybe i should write it first And do the living later 'cause life is so much cleaner on the page It's like the time i lost my body And then i saw it on t.v. Somehow it shed a whole dimension But it still looked like me (hey! that looks like me!) Each time i write lines for it Someone improvises it Life is so much cleaner on the page Life is so much cleaner on the page

Took the flower back His wayward love had been mislead The sun is dying Apologies she can't accept Check the window quick The sun is dying Blue and red of day to purple night And absent light to disarray Took the flower back His wayward love had been mislead The sun is dying Apologies she won't accept Check the window quick The sun is dying A candle marks her tears The flame will fade She'll greet the dawn in disarray She steps into the stream the level rising She steps into the stream the level rising Took the flower back His wayward love had been misled The level's rising Steps into the stream We're so misled She'll watch the pain the level's rising Blue and reds of day to purple night And absent light to disarray She steps into the stream the level rising She steps into the stream the level rising She steps into the stream the level rising She steps into the stream the level rising
