Love Letter to a Younger Self

This record does not know how to survive in a knife fight or protect you from what’s coming or how to recreate the sound you have learned to like. It probably doesn’t even fit in over there nor does it have the temperament to play to the gallery. But in it’s quiet it is bashful and honest. It won’t shout at you from across the street or viral out on social media nor will it construct convoluted ways to attract your attention. Having said that it does want to cuddle up with you in the dark and whisper beneath your headphones how it feels.

And yes, it wants to be enormous! When it is acting out its drunken quarter this album is no longer shy; it is twitchy to be the toast of the world, to be signed upon breasts, the voice of a generation, danced and wept and followed. But this album did not need you in its creation. However, ironically you are the only thing that brings it to life. And it just might be the shared discovery that helps you find love.

Track Listing

Love Letter to a Younger Self

And one day you will be very happy
And all of today will be over
And you will fall in love
And you will not die before you are ready
And you will be a father and a mother
And you will shed your skin and grow
Your life has only just begun
And those powerhouse kisses will never be undone
And you will see through the blur of rain the path from town to city
And you will free yourself in tears from the broken life you lead
For the greatest journey has only just begun

This is a love letter to a younger self
And you will feel things that will never be undone

And you will flirt with fame until you achieve peace
No more chasing thumbs that don’t exist
And strive to be a sentient thing turn up one lonely light at least
You won't believe how good this can be
You’ll jump from bridges into lakes and scream
Drink in what’s most beautiful in this mouth watering life
And only then you will know the goddam world is mad
But that’s all you really need to know for now
Deny the ghastly beasts and you will overcome

This is a love letter to a younger self
And you will feel the things that will never be undone

Then one night walking home missing someone un-yet born
You will feel a love and you won’t know why
Some things we still do not have the privileges to know
You will always dream that you’re awake
Let your painting never be untitled now
And peace will come and hold you down
For the thing you were looking for you found
And nobody cares about your shoes
And we are wonderful
The more you’ll be the more you’ll know
And I haven’t even got to music yet
But it will come

This is a love letter to a younger self
And you will feel the things that will never be undone

And you’ll have a thing with code and make love with life
And know the fake and empty feeling deep inside
You are young and it will pass
And you shall dance with tzars with slaughterhouse hearts
And you shall witness the last great polar bear
And kneel to the smell of death on Earth
The carnival of life is just a smile away
And you know sometimes life has to be let go
And from a taxman bayou someone kind will call you home
And you will sense in dreams and feel mankind
Life’s greatest gift is already with you
Your revolution has begun

This is a love letter to a younger self
And you will feel things that will never be undone

Love Louder Than Bombs

We’re a bucket and a clown
We’re the feeling of hope
We’re bohemian in kind
When beauties lips quote
The Human lightning has stuck
We’re all of these songs
The way that we mate
You and me
We’ve love louder than bombs

Oh the wisdom you bring
There’s echoes in love so I’m told
We’re thought without shape
Add it to the canon of your soul
So many doorways dark but we’re not
We’re frescos and psalms
Hold on to your wings
Me and you
We’ve love louder than bombs

Don’t censor your blush
It’s ourselves that we fear
We’re just Gods in small shoes
Everything ya ever gonna want is already here
Do ya hear ‘em screaming inside
Beneath the rubble of Homs
They swapped a childs heart in a war
Imagine that
We’ve love louder than bombs

Valentines Day is Done

Love is easier to get into than out of
And I’ve seen the skirts downtown they look like God
To satisfy the dream you wanna believe in
Sacrifice what you are for what you’re not
Valentines day is over
Valentines day is done

And there are no songs here for the ugly
Or for the humiliation with which you bleed
As you lower your sights and form reality
The definition of romance is make believe
Valentines day is over
Valentines day is done

And restaurants are throwing out all your broken promises
You return to what your loveless life still means
And the stores take down their heart shaped balloons
As we kiss goodbye once more their manufactured dreams
Valentines day is over
Valentines day is done

Cards are gone so has their redundant meaning
You peddling sex in wake of love
What they hustle ya with is pop idol empty
Sold a billion dollar childs game for a massacre of love
Valentines day is over
Valentines day is done

Lonely Road Long

Hey traveller thank you
I was alone on this road
I’m tired of all the fighting
And their Pentecostal robes

Hey writer I read you
And my thoughts came to song
I outgrew my father
It's a lonely road long

Hey people you want love
Please take it from me
It's a big beautiful world
Oh suck it and see

Hey lonely I feel ya
I’ve seen where you lay
You call out from the darkness
What no one can say

And I know there are the things
We’re never meant to feel
At the age of a rainbow
And I felt it and it's real

Hey prayer I hear you
From where longing is from
Until you touch the human race
It's a lonely road long
