about

Began in September 2014, completed in December 2014.

The EP's concept is phylogenetic: each song is constructed from an element from a preceding song, whether a small part of it, or a more obvious segment. The first song is constructed from a piece that is not part of the album (is here included as a bonus track).

Full audio commentary for every track will be released.

Only select songs are shown here, all of them can be listened to upon downloading the album.

Track Name: Teleonaut
Lord forgive me
I've become someone I shouldn't be
And all of my worries
Over what I've done whether right or wrong
They don't belong
With the beauty you afford, my Lord and God

I am finished denying it's you I see here
I am done denying that you are the one for me
That you are the one
Away from who I've run in the night
I am finished denying it's you I see here
I am done denying that I'm who I shouldn't be

Lord forgive me over what I've done.
Track Name: Half Glass
Keep your head held high and your expectations low
People are disappointed every day
And hard work doesn't always pay (yeah)
A Djarum in the shower is exactly what I need
Get back to the water

I feel like I've been ill for a long long time
My soul has a cold that I just can't kill (yeah)

Knots get tied that man can't make.
Lord knows we tried to write our fate
The life felt in my fingers is exactly what I need
Get back to the water
