about

- 4 songs written and loosely recorded in a bunch of different houses and rooms in Mt. Airy, Philadelphia.
- The rain on "(Light Awoken)" was part of a big booming unignorable thunder storm that woke me up at 4 AM one morning. Tom Christie, Leslie Bear and Nora Einbender-Luks all sing with me on that one too.
- the rest is all just me sitting in the dark and tapping on desks and plastic storage containers until I get the right sound
- hope u enjoy bye !

Track Name: (Light Awoken)
no world
all thunder
Track Name: No World
There is no way not to disturb the world around you
but - you can minimize it

And there is no right way to hold this world you love
but - you can just put it down

That's why I can see myself in 10 years pushing blackberries into the pavement - so that the sidewalk looks more and more like the forest floor
I used to walk on

Nothing will stay where it is
And in this way you always perceive
emptiness

There is no right way to preserve the world around you
you'll just start to hate it

And there is no right way to let go of this world you love
without any deep scarring

That's why I can see myself in 20 years picking weeds mouthfirst in abandoned lots - just to press them into my breaking skin
to recreate the young flesh I'm living in

Nothing will stay where it is
And in this way you always perceive
emptiness

And we just go on and on
manufacturing inferior substitutes
Track Name: Flicker
Found a stone wall in endless green
A granite sickle sprawling out to me
I walked it's length til I fell off the end
I was caked in mud and all my limbs were bent

So I steep my body in the boiling spring
I say "let the endless cleansing begin"
With wild echoes trailing back
Trailing back to reveal themselves

They say "Tim you're living your life
flickering in and flickering out
why don't you just stay still for a while"

My breath is arid and the soil is cracked
It fills my lungs til they're limp and slack
I rise and I fall I am impermanent
Can't even remember how my time should be spent

All while my body develops abnormally
It's only in the water that I can feel clean
So I trace shapes of wells and piers
And they reveal patterns in the atmosphere

They say "Tim you're living your life
flickering in and flickering out
why don't you just stay still for a while"
Track Name: Body At Night
There is someone clapping my shutters at night
And I when I hear him
I don't move

He moves like the wind but blows internally
And somehow he's figured out I scare
easily

It lumps in my throat
Whenever I hear him approach
And even when I
Lie
Still

He comes over at night
And tells me what I am doing wrong
He comes over at night
He thinks that it's alright
He comes over at night
When I am feeling most vulnerable
He comes over at night
