Thieves 03:26
I consider the circumstance And mold it into sound And whatever the trappings are I’m bound to shout it down And say something beautiful But it won’t make it true It’s hard playing innocent ‘Cause I’m hell-bent on thieving Why don’t we tell them I have looked at the photographs A hundred times or more And they ruin the question so I Throw them to the floor And say something cynical But it won’t make it true I’m through being minimal ‘Cause I’m knocked down and bleeding Why don’t we tell them
2.
Shelter 05:52
Tie the engine To the balance of my blood And do as you will You have taken All the silence for yourself And swallowed the truth I belong To the shelter of my own Somewhere in between The feathers and the bone Time oversees Cover me Tie me down in chains of gold Fill me up with all the beauty That you sold So easily Find the pathway Where the river meets the trees And wait for me there We will climb the sky Until it fades to black And breathe in the air (chorus)
3.
Paper Roses 03:34
To seasons ever-changing I am much obliged So many forms been taken Shed, and thrown aside Paper roses Rest in peace Though my hopes Lie withered on the vine I wait on bended knee Premonitions Gone awry I’ve seen meadows overgrow with time But never cease to be Beneath the black-eyed sun Phantoms drift away And chase the kestrel singing Hollow forms astray Paper roses Let me be Though my thoughts grow cold From day to day I want to make you see Premonitions Gone awry I’ve seen meadows overgrow with time But never cease to be
4.
Don’t ever blame it On the lessons that you know I’m aware of the reason You don’t call my name Go look through all the Fancy dresses that you own Is there one for the season Or do they look the same I won’t beg but I might wallow How does it feel when you know You can play it blind I’ll never show the words I’ve written on the wall ‘Cause I know when you see them You might run away In the end you’ll bleed me hollow How does it feel when you know You can play it blind
5.
I can see when I touch the fuse Body blows turning black and blue I’m a leper when the shades are drawn But I won’t let it all Drag me down this time I see red cause I know it’s true Whisper voices all undermine You won’t hand me an axe to grind But I won’t let it all Drag me down this time Come in closer Listen to me See the places I have bled You play like children Trample on daisies Then you tell me it’s in my head

Yellow Woman 03:49
Yellow woman Why have you replaced me Don’t you find it cruel You shiver when you face me Draw the curtains in my room Occupy my hands by Breaking mirrors In a hundred million places Spread the pieces ‘round But still I see the faces Casting shadows in my mind I can’t try to fake it Listen to the radio airwaves Do you hear the sound Am I coming in clearly You beat me to the ground But it happened so slowly Yellow woman Do you hear me now Garden lady Woman of the country Don’t you know it’s true The bitterness still haunts me River runs so deep and cold I can’t try to trace it (chorus)
7.
Wandering high Along a path of leaf and snow We set out In the cold morning air Skies blue and grey I wandered off alone and well And felt the breath I hold so deep Fade in the pines Lady of the golden brown Tell me how to push the sound away
8.
Through windows in the hall The surface of the lake Painted gardens on the wall And where the lion falls The colors start to change I will turn away from here And dress the gypsy child In colors of the queen Able servant I’d become But when the laughter died I felt the cold embrace Now I see the ghost again Master of the change You’re always chasing fireflies Will it be the same When seasons change and slowly die Will it ever come again When seeds that fall Will turn to sand Where the lion falls Colors start to change I will turn away from here (chorus)
9.
Do you feel the drift of every living thing Pull to either side However strong the love you bring Do the howls from different planets’ rings Ever give you cause to fly Away Will you steer the flame When every breath is drawn And feel the beating wings When all the birds have come and gone Sing the song of every season’s change Where the souls are laid to waste Away Can you see the force That turns the seeds to green Grinding stone to earth The hands are felt but never seen Do the ghosts that gather in the breeze Ever give you cause to fly Away
10.
Passengers 05:59
Passengers gone for the day Feel the wind and watch the banners rise Fields turning green where they lie Brings you down and makes you wonder why All the faces that I’ve ever known From the places where I used to dwell They slow my hands Setting seeds into the wind I would do my best for you You’re cold and settled in There is nothing I can do Sails in the wind Alone on the rising tide Passengers wander so fair Over meadows under mountainsides Fields burning soft where the stand Makes you angry so you hold your eyes And the reasons swarm like blackened birds And I cut my tongue on bitter words They slow my hands Setting seeds into the wind I would do my best for you You’re cold and settled in There is nothing I can do Sails in the wind Alone on the rising tide

about

Self-titled debut delivering a fresh spin on hard-swinging psychedelic rock while invariably taking the listener back to a familiar era. The fuzz and fire of the double-guitar attack fuels this vessel while Wilson’s melodic songcraft and gifted traversal of light & dark imagery makes this voyage accessible to a mass audience.
