about

'Teeth' spent a long time in my head before it came around. i lived and worked in paris for a year while writing and recording most of this EP/album (as well as a follow-up soon to be released) - it was crazy amazing. i grew up with a french mom, so i'd spend my summers with family in france. it's a weird feeling to have a foot in more than one world - like you never really belong anywhere. so spending a year in paris was gratifying as a way to zip up different parts of myself. I guess this EP 'Teeth' is kind of a bridge from an older time of more tragic songs, to today, with more pop-influenced songs.

For now, the cd covers are made by hand and are 5 bux. The songs are available from this site as a free download for now. The companion EP called 'Feets' will be released in the very near future.

Track Name: Ravens
Ravens

When you are far from me
I hope you can hear me
we would all clap our hands
cause hands were made for clapping dear
all of us are friendly
but we will never get inside
for though we are witnesses
we are never alibis
...
we can feel this wave break but nothing will break in
holy like a temple that no one ever gets in
all of us are ravens and we will never die again
but we may never rise again
waiting for the tide again
Track Name: Kites & Arrows
Kites & Arrows


A hail of kites & arrows
Enough to set the seas wide open
Like our hearts inside us
Beating fast to spite us
I failed to set the record straight
I failed to set the record straight


Head just like a prison
The father, son, and holy ghost
He lifts you up beside him
I wish you were just like him
The only thing that separates
Is what you put inside him...


I was not made for this world
But I was made for you.
Track Name: Tied to the Mast
Tied to the Mast

Drawn to the Sea and
Tied to the mast
Bravely wait the kiss
Turn towards the tide

Heavy is the clay
Tired are the fingers that
Wait for the words to
Echo in our hearts


Modern daydream
Sleep where you can


Drawn to the Sea and
Tied to the mast
Bravely wait the kiss
Turn towards the tide

Heavy is the clay
Tired are the fingers that
Wait for the words to
Echo in our hearts
Track Name: Pieces
Pieces

brother please don't be angry
i do the very best that i can
and when i make it home
i'll show you the backs of my hands

pieces feel like they'll never fit inside
it never feels right
seasons feel like they're passing me by
i'm dying inside
and signs were brighter where there was no light
there never was a light
signs were brighter where there was no light


i'd light this fire from below
and let this body burn when i go


brother please don't be sad
i've taken the longest road that i could
and if i make it home
i'll tear down the nails and the wood


i'd light this fire from below
and let this body burn when i go
Track Name: Great Machine
Great Machine

Son of the great machine
i heard you call my name
mother says she's proud
of where i am now

paint a picture of a family tree
daughters are the sons
their mothers keep
fingers stained with blood
blood that won't come off
paint a picture of a family tree
sons are just the daughters
fathers need
fingers stained with love
love that won't rub off

distant is the heart
that never knew its twin
to play the lonely part
of saviors bathed in sin
gratefully the hands
hold what's yet to come
for babies teeth are made
from parts of larger suns
