This album's a bit of a rambler, loosey goosey, mostly instrumental, a late summer Seattle rock dirge with bemoaning tones and trembling emotions.

Long continuous jams have been broken into smaller chunks seemingly at random, and sometimes two distinct "songs" get mashed together in one track. We apologize for and glory in any inconvenience this causes.

"No brakes, no map, no going back."

Track Name: comfort zone / glass
i'm feeling kind of funny
my toes are tingling
and my legs...
don't seem to be...

i'm stepping out
i have my doubts
i'm getting out of
my comfort zone

started out so scary
out of the ordinary
now i don't wanna go
back to my comfort zone


hard and clear
brittle like me
talkin' 'bout...
Track Name: how are you? / smoke break
how are you?
what you gonna do?

there's a good reason
that i love smokin'
it's a well-oiled system
how are you?

turn a blind eye
there's no force
our power has been denied


Track Name: all over me / just another fuckup
you're the salt in my saddle
you're the rock in my yogurt

you're the fly in my alphabet
you're like the raspberry sherbet

that's melting, running out of the freezer
and now it's a mess

you're the dog in my bathtub
you're the razor in an apple
you're a nickel in my cheesecake
you're the brain in my toilet paper

you're the apple of my eagle
you're the face i should have been eating

you're the poet in abe lincoln
you're an iceberg in the ocean
you're the fate i want to happen
all over me

you're the sugar in my gastank
you're carbon monoxide in a garage
locked up at night

you're everything i couldn't be
you are you
i am me

you are you
but we are we


i got it wrong
i fucked up
gotta apologize
to someone

i coulda done better
i shoulda done better

just another fuckup
oh shit another fuckup
goddamn another fuckup

go back
correct it
and hope that
they don't notice

they don't know shit

Track Name: paean
...i don't believe in countries anyway
they're just lines on a page...

love is free
Track Name: we talked about this
