Recording music has always been a way for me to pretend I’ll be immortalized. Yet, the more time passes, the more mortal these recordings make me feel. I can’t believe it’s been 15 years since Movement was released. To look back and see what I have and haven’t accomplished makes me feel more human than ever. I am so happy that Joann Whang (cello), Patrick Staples (guitar), & Kent Zambrana (bass, mandolin, vox) will always live on with me here. Thank you to all who have been part of this, but especially to those who listened with sincerity. This Bandcamp download has an extra B-Side not found on any streaming service and our special run Cassette may or may not contain a secret song :). -Mike

But I won’t let you down again. Sometimes my better mind subsides. I panic even when I’m inside. Sometimes I’m drained and done with me, but maybe I just need more time. At higher altitudes, I still feel her. Can you see with tragic eyes? I’m just waiting to attack with her. I’m tied. So, now I’m tied, she said with a perfect smile. When did you fade and forget I’m right? Let down your guard. Forget you’re tied and I’ll forget why I won’t try again. Stop finding faults in everyone you fear. I said, I forgot why. She said, I hear you drowning but I’m tied. Stop counting please, they’re all fake me’s. Don’t mind if I break down again, I can always hide from this town. Don’t let them know where we’ll hide today. Goodbye and we will all be here for you. It’s all for good and all you say to me is always hanging on to yesterday. I watch your static steps align. A slow out, drawing back into the crowd. She wrote to me. There’s nothing now. I can bring you a new smile. She wrote again. Have you heard? I threw emotion to the curb. They warned me of your invisible arms. They warned me of your miracle arms. But they won’t say why it’s so hard. But they won’t say why they’re gone. Don’t you know we’re already here? I don’t even know if you’re here today. You don’t even know if I’m here okay. They know every time. And I won’t fight if you come. With my heart so strange, I can’t decide where to go without you. I saved you once, will you save me? Now I’ll erase the years I left to lose alone. As I erase those years, I hope you’ll soon be home.

Go and fight your right. It will be enough to say but I didn’t think it’d
be so hard. I’ll take you to the moon. I’ll take you to the stars where
your eyes and my eyes can’t figure out who’s gone. You’re tired of this place. I can see it in your face. You stalk me in our room, but won’t talk to me til noon. You’re bleeding everywhere but all I can do is stare. You say it’s no big deal. Don’t you know it hurts me still? Here we go, we’ll open the halos. We’ll follow the light with time, feel our bodies collide. Don’t let it go when you do decide to fight, wait it out for the right time. But they don’t know what it’s like in your arms.
