about

What does Alaska mean?
Well, I have never been there, but, in my imagination, it represents a place of peace and tranquility. My girlfriend and I have always wanted to travel there. Sometimes prep school seemed too much like a prison to our adventurous spirits. I dedicate this album to Mackenzie.

Track Name: Alaska's Lullaby
Don’t be scared now
Lay your head down
Leave the wolves
Wearing suits
Far behind you

I’ll make Alaska out of my own two hands
I’ll take disaster, turn it into a nice tan
I’ll put the colors
I’ll put the colors in the land

Calm your heart dear
Let your mind clear
Leave the bears
In taxi cabs
Far behind you

I’ll make Alaska out of my own two hands
I’ll take disaster, turn it into a nice tan
I’ll put the colors
I’ll put the colors in the land

Now wont you
Sleep
Now my child
Track Name: Lightening Queen
The Queen’s got a backpack
Loaded with Red Bulls
She clinks around in silver scales
Her armor never rips
Her armor never fails
No, no
No, no, no
No, no, no

I don’t want to go outside
And I don’t want to even try
To pretend
That I like crowded rooms (oooo)

Her fingertips have lightening
Stemming from her spine
She floats around on thunder clouds
Her power never slips
Her power never drowns
No, no
No, no, no
No, no, no

I don’t want to go outside
And I don’t want to even try
To pretend
That I like crowded rooms (oooo)

The queen keeps me sheltered
Under her black wings
We fly above the cobbled streets
Her beauty never dies
Her beauty never leaves
No, no
No, no, no
No, no, no

I don’t want to go outside
And I don’t want to even try
To pretend
That I like crowded rooms (oooo)

She takes me on great adventures
and I don’t want to try
To remember
That I liked being alone.
Track Name: Telephone Wires: Two
Up with the wolves
Forget about ZZZs
Life’s on the ground
But I’m up in the trees

I feel your words
But can’t see you breath
I feel your words
But can’t see your teeth

I’m skywalking on telephone wires
High above streets and spires
I don’t care if I step against my will
I can’t get enough of your pills (x2)

Fog in the halls
Everyone’s blind
Trapped behind glass
With steel plated minds

I feel your words
But cant see your lips
I feel your words
Vibrate at my hips

I’m skywalking on telephone wires
High above streets and spires
I don’t care if I step against my will
I can’t get enough of your pills (x2)

Promised myself
That I’d never walk
On Radio ropes
And forget how to talk

The Balancing act
Was worth it for you
Waving my arms
As I step off the roof

I’m skywalking on telephone wires
High above streets and spires
I don’t care if I step against my will
I can’t get enough of your pills (x2)

I don’t care much
for texting at all
But I sure care
For you
Track Name: Rocking Chair
Rocking Chair

When our skulls are a dull mush of mash potatoes
Our legs are pegs of tan toothpicks
I’ll keep you warm when you’re sick
I’ll keep you warm when you’re sick

Back and fourth we go
(Till the) moon makes my head low
back and fourth we go
till together is being alone
being alone

When we sleep more than sloths sunbathing in sand
Our snores rattle doors and shake our little shack
If you leave, you can always come back
If you leave, you can always come back

Back and fourth we go
(Till the) moon makes my head low
back and fourth we go
till together is being alone
being alone

When our vertebrae hurt everyday
When putting in dentures is an adventure
You’ll bring out the song in me
You’ll bring out the song in me
You’ll bring out the song in me

Back and fourth we go
(Till the) moon makes my head low
back and fourth we go
till together is being alone
being alone

I’ll love you, when your covered in grey hair
I’ll love you, oh I’ll love you
I’ll love you in the rocking chair

Lets count to three
And cut our I.V.s
We can float off with the afternoon breeze
I’ll take this love to my grave
I’ll take this love to my grave
Track Name: Mahogany Eyes
Your mahogany eyes
And your ocean curls
You get me so high
Higher than all the world

Higher than all the world

You are truly perfect
You’re completely insane
I wouldn’t like you any other way
Oh it’s just, oh it’s just
Another day

There’s coffee in your blood
And sugar in your words
You got so much love
More love than I deserve

More love than I Deserve

You are truly perfect
You’re completely insane
I wouldn’t like you any other way
Oh it’s just, oh it’s just
Another day

I wish that you could see yourself the way I do
every single thing I say is true

You are truly perfect
You’re completely insane
I wouldn’t like you any other way
Oh it’s just, oh it’s just
Oh shit
it’s your birthday
