about

For the past year we've each chosen and worked on 5 songs to record and release on the same album. It's called Both/And (thanks to aaronnebauer.bandcamp.com for writing a beautiful song of the same name) because there is life beyond Black or White, Art or Science, Sacred or Secular, Capitalism or Socialism, etc.

It's been a much needed impetus for us to work on some new material, but also to look at some old songs that should have been, but never were, recorded. We hope you enjoy them.

Track Name: Scene of The Crime
So I reached out to the scene of the crime
Felt so good I pulled myself through for a while.
A big house with turns and rooms with no names
The windows weren’t open but it didn’t stop the light.

...and I will never cry
my tears fall to the floor
you’ve broken me inside
I couldn’t ask for more.

So pride held me down while your love kept me warm
Life all around once again I am born
New sunsets kill old rainy days
Wise words were spoken I will never be the same.

The cold wind that you're standing in, you brought the rain when you let me in, and your shadow stays, with friends who pray, who bow their heads, and look away.
Track Name: Ezra
U keep me up at night
I cried when u were born
A mix of fun and fright
I really should have known
When hope is out of sight
U keep me here and sane
When she and I just fight
U laugh through all the pain

My prince my alabi
My zest my suicide
My boy my dancing fool
My highest calling..

U Make Me Feel…

U Make Me Feel...

I keep thinking of death
U cried when u were born
My falling I regret
Forgive me when ur grown
When love is wearing thin
U give me a new start
I wipe I clean ur skin
U scream u clean my heart

Feel something when numbness sets in

Reveal something when dumbness gets the best Of me
Track Name: Morning Light
So you threw away all your own promises but you kept the one about us dreaming, and if it wasn’t for you right now well maybe i’d still be believing and as we make the final plans, you read your books in the evening.

There maybe no new ideas but there is new ways of making meaning.


You come from left field

walk through my door

turn on your heels

lay down your chords

and you sing on my chorus

stay in my songs

I’ll keep you here,

I’ll keep you here.

Everytime I wake up and you're lying next to me,

I can see our new heart, beating in the morning light.


The months before the wave, yeah I felt like i could be a living man and you danced around my walls, and put to shame the mystery of Notre Dame.
Track Name: Either/Or
Sacred or Secular
Right/Left, Near or Far
Spiritual / Molecular
Radical / Traditional

Medical / Miraculous
One of them, or one of us
Evolvin' or created dust
Revealin' or confusin' us

If I let you go
Will you disappear without a single track
If you let me go
Will you let me in if I come crawling back

Personal or Political
Run away or give it all
Civil or criminal
Short straw or standin' tall

Black or white, Love or hate
From the heart or from the head
Right now or fashionably late
Lock down or liberate

If I let you go
Will you disappear without a single track
If you let me go
Will you let me in if I come crawling back

Either/Or we’re driven up the wall now
Either/Or is rather out of touch now
Either/Or we’re running out of time now
Either/Or is out of date now

If I let you go
Will you disappear without a single track
If you let me go
Will you let me in if I come crawling back

If I love you so
Will you disappear somewhere along the track
If you love me so
Will you let me go & find my own way back
Track Name: Hold the tide
Pick up your wings at the end of the table
Leave your old dry skin to die in the shadow
I don’t walk on water with no one to follow
I don’t kiss the sky with nothing to swallow

What I did wrong it wasn’t right
What I did wrong it wasn’t right
Cut my Sails and hold the tide
I can’t wait to give my love again.

Where were you when I started breathing
did you catch up on sleep while she was healing
We both know the death that helps us die
and went out to sea on a bed of lies
I believe you I believe you I believe you.
Track Name: Sometimes
All good that's what he said
Then walked, then walked away
Was it all in my head
I thought we had a reasonable day
I thought about it more
Then thought about it less
Sometimes u gotta walk
Sometimes u gotta stay

The prejudice was ripe
Some careless words she said
I could have stayed and fight
But chose to walk away
I thought about it more
Then thought about it less
Sometimes u gotta walk
Sometimes u gotta stay

Her friends said to be strong
She must walk away
Betrayal of love is wrong
But they’ll support her either way
She thought about it more
Then thought about it less
Sometimes u gotta walk
Sometimes u gotta stay

Yes she's the one He loves
He'll never walk away
Take back your ill-found words
He'll stand his ground today
He thought about it more
Then thought about it less
Sometimes u gotta walk
Sometimes u gotta stay

Sometimes there isn't more
And life seems meaningless
Sometimes u gotta walk...
This time He's gonna stay

Track Name: Fix it
Among my whole lifetime of regrets
Simply none compared to this
Lustful moment almost sentenced me
To half a life without your kiss

Don’t know why
There’s no excuse
Do know that I never stopped loving you

I broke your heart
One blow, a million pieces
That dream we had
Don’t know how to fix it

Life was so simple when we met
We walked the aisle, made promises
But you don’t know which tale time will tell
This bittersweet, beautiful mess

I won’t try &
Deny this guilt
Just hopin’ that we can still rebuild

I broke your heart
One blow, a million pieces
That dream we had
Don’t know how to fix it

I broke your heart
One blow, a million pieces
This life we’ve made
I hope we can live it
Track Name: Heart of sand
I can never reach you
You already hold my hand
Belly in the water
Filling up my heart with sand
I could never teach you
You already understand
Nothing else can change you
Change is what we all demand.

In the dark - where I wait
All the noise - i could make
all the stars - that you made before me.

I can never love you
not without letting go
lifting up to heaven
calling out for help below
I can never break you
you’re the strength I need right now
moving with the water
going where we’re not allowed.

Pins of light, light my way
I reach for her, but I’m out of space
There is no I - only we, I felt the waves releasing me.
All the noise I can make.
Track Name: God
God Almighty
God of war
God our armies, they adore
Whose blessings only flow to those
Who spread the lies
I don't believe...
I needed him
When I was 16

God of mercy
God of all
God our broken hearts long for
Whose love extends to enemies
I know that face
I've called her name...
When you meet this God
You don't stay the same

When you meet this God
You don't stay the same
