about

Fellover My Own was recorded in a number of sessions at The Lodge in Dayton, KY, June and July, 2016.

The album demonstrates a transformation in that this project, originally a solo effort, galvanizes now as an ensemble.

This work posits to express the experience, trifling, humbling, and humouring, of the conundrum of human effort. By endeavouring to cultivate higher self, or spiritual awareness, or better person, we paradoxically inhibit ourselves within our very striving.

Fellover My Own is a collection of notes to self, the listener, and an invitation to fall in love with who you are becoming.

Track Name: Do For Self
so i do for me
so take it all from me
so i lay for me
surely for me
slowly for me
so far from me
so so sorry

so i lay for me
surely for me
slowly for me
so far for me
so far from me

when my light louder
make my world childer
then my life wilder
Track Name: Fall Out
go on, give it to me straight
i wanna hear it from your point of view
come on, you're gonna make me late
i wanna learn because it's what i do
forget it, come along i want to away
come along i want to away, i wanna weigh my life with you
don't you get it? you make it in a day
[you may not get any]

fall out, make time
grow light, you'll find your way

go on, give it to me straight
i wanna hear it from your point of view
come on, i wanna make you late
i wanna run, i wanna play with you
i think it's about to be about the beat
so while you're at it why don't you look down at your feet?

fall out, make time
grow light, you'll find your way
fall out ..
more light, give all away

come on and get on it
you want it, you got it
fell on it, forgot it

[fall out, give all away]

[fall out, go a way]
Track Name: Bottom
get beneath what words are said
never mind what's in your head
you don't know what's harming you
you can cry a lot until you get to
the bottom of this tune

kill your masters they go faster than you'd set your pace
i know one day you'll get in between the matter
regarding time, we're counting on you
you will try a lot until you get to
the bottom of this tune

you don't know what's harming you
[you can cry a lot until you get to
the bottom of this tune]

get beneath what words are said
never mind what's in your head
you don't know what's harming you
you will die a lot, and then you'll get to
the bottom of this tune
Track Name: Man On Fire
fell down, crawled out
in towards false light
fell down, reached out,
found knot untied inside

inside i find it colder than
a man on fire making stupid faces
pardon my explicative guile
i'll shut me down for a little while

i'm wicked awful

find out, send help
take your time, don't you mind

i find it cold, find it colder than
a man on fire making stupid faces
pardon my explicative guile
i'll shut me down for a little while

i find it cold, find it colder than
a blanket smile in impoverished culture

you decide what moves and matters to you
you divide your time when patterns suit you
you design your life as only you do
you align with which you only knew
because that's what knew you

i'm wicked awful
Track Name: Middle
meet me in the middle, it's a little cold
seat me in the middle, it's a riddle, don't go in the middle
treat me just a little more to your fiddle in the middle

ok, i surmise all day with my own eyes
that y'all ain't dead [y'all ain't dead]
i sympathize with your struggle
may be time to circumnavigate your bubble

ok, i realize, lonely in my own guise,
to ally with the fight, lend and eye to the blind
care for careful love in you

if you allow the words to fall in places
single cycle will light your aching conflict
follow fallow plots in your garden, maker
take it only if you will make it, faker

meet me [seat me] in the middle,
it's a riddle, don't go in the middle

if you allow the words to fall in places
single cycle will light your aching conflict
follow fallow plots in your garden, maker
take it only if you will make it, faker
Track Name: Durham
given a while,
in time i deliver
always in time
go away, i need
a little bit of solitude
to my own

forget why i lied
made believe her
who made my mind
follow, go ahead
you are let on [you are led on]

[take a little bit of time]

i don't know if i
fell in down the well
will i see the light
before i go to hell?

there's something in the water
that's poisoning our children
and i don't want my daughters
to know what really happens

and if i live to tell
what happened down the well
it wouldn't be a lie, my friends
to say i've galvanized
but i'm terrified
Track Name: Follow
day ran over you
and night fell over too

thru a particular lens
i was thinking i'd win
even if i'd lose friends
false i was thinking
and when i'd awoken
i vowed i would never again

follow, feel it, follow

they cannot wait for you
and i think you'll pull it thru
they say they want the truth
must mean i am born to die

thru a particular lens
i was thinking i'd win
even if i'd lose friends
false i was thinking
and when i'd awoken
i vowed i would never again
now in a moment of sense
try to make it less dense
even if it costs cents
you can afford it
you write and record it
and now you can start it again

and even if you let it go
then even though you are left with an echo
you would prefer to make it so
and even tho it would hurt, you would grow
you wouldn't have to let her go,
all along she will live, and you're wrong
you made it then you let it go
move along, you are safe in your song
Track Name: Sages
how long, how long will this last?
all we're doing is fearing the past [path]
let it all wash off in the stream
save yourself, you know what i mean

you know what i mean
you know what i mean
you know what i mean
it's only a dream

you warmed me and then
made off with my head
i am afraid of your bed
i love you, i loved you
i love you, all of you
Track Name: Often
to this you say
often [often], i draw the line
forget [forget] where i went blind
go ahead, go ahead
we're facing time

fall in, fall in, i wouldn't mind
come and behold your own divine
that said, you're only but a soul incarnate
misstep in stride, alive inside

cold when [cold wind] i'm alive
falling down in faith
and i know i went blind
falling down in faith
Track Name: Carry Us
come carry us down to our bed
don't bury us, we are not dead yet

oh my, mary us
flowers in our bed
i query us
god's in our heads
what is said is our bread
we are fed

could all of the violence end?
if only you think it can
for those seeking a helping hand

be kind when you feed your body
be wise when you use your mind
think of your neighbor's children

just sit alone and be quiet
you didn't mean anything by it
