about

first release as "wolves asleep" -- both a lyrical reference and a mental image that has frequently come up in my songwriting over the years. These songs are an exploration of bringing this project/journey to a deeper, more meditative place -- also a release and exercise of letting go of the past, which explains the scary lyrical themes of death/murder.
The new moniker is intended to create a space apart from my "self" for this project -- one that I hope you can enjoy listening to as much as I do to make it.

as always, listen loudly and freely

Track Name: i -- "...underneath the snow..."
I was crawling out -- the wayside saw
You found my body underneath the snow
And pulled me by my hands to get me out
There's nothing left to hold except my mouth
Everybody wants some
Everybody cares
If you wanna find one
Leave me where I lay
Leave me where I lay
I lay
Track Name: iii - the final dance
... And can you hear me now?
Are you listening?

I can't sing you away
And where have you been?
When my heart's in the car
And it's driving away
I remember your face
I remember your face
Track Name: iv - here
Why? You want my skin
Wrap it around
Like what you've found?
Isn't this what you wanted?
Isn't this what you said?
Everything is your puppet
Hide in you

I can't watch - holding while you're sinking away
I'll find you - sleeping in the stones of your grave
Here

Here, I'll find your face
Cut it around
One quiet mouth
Isn't this what you wanted?
Isn't this what you said?
Everything is your puppet
Hide in you

I can't watch - holding while you're sinking away
I'll find you - sleeping in the stones of your grave
Pull me out - I don't wanna hide here no more
Call my name - even while you're sinking away
Here
Track Name: v - re: canyon
Did I hear you laughing?
Sitting on the couch next to me
Asking what I've been up to
I must be dreaming of the time
We were slowly walking
Through an empty canyon
In that lonely place I saw
Your name slowly echoing
I just hear what I see
Creeping in my body
Like a frozen lake I fall
Crawl across it breaking
