about

This was how we followed up Locksley. We tooled around playing live for a couple years trying to hone in on our sound and this EP is the result of those years. We made this record independently with Ryan Tallent and a host of friends chipping in on instruments. This was our first stab at getting "Make Me Whole" down. This year though, 2013, we decided to give it another go. As much as we dig this recording here, we always knew it deserved a deeper look.

Track Name: Don't Say That
Don’t say that…this is too much
I can tell that… I’m making you crazy
Don’t say things that you don’t mean
It’s strange how we love each other, hurt each other

Don’t say that…you’ve had enough
I can tell that… you’re starting to hate me
Don’t say things that you don’t mean
It’s strange how we love each other, hurt each other

I won’t come toward you, so you don’t come to me
Now we’re both alone….saying I’m right and you’re wrong

I look at you and I see so much of me
There I am in the worst that you can be
It’s a painful irony

Don’t we love each other
Don’t say the things you don’t mean
Don’t say the things you don’t mean
Track Name: Make Me Whole
Can you hear the people sing
To their god to their god…whole

Shut your ears if you can’t hear
So you don’t, so you don’t
Hear this clanging cymbal
Banging gong, banging gong
Whole…make me whole

Shut your eyes if you can’t see
So you don’t, so you don’t
See that I am holding
Holding on, holding on
Crying whole… make me whole

Jesus, make me whole
So I don’t, so I don’t
Let the evil take its toll
So I don’t, so I don’t
Put your love into my soul
Lift me up, lift me up
Make me whole

Hear the people sing to their god, to their god
Hear the people sing to their god, god, god
God, god sing… to their god, god
Track Name: You and No Other
Lover, let your hair fall down
Take off your makeup take off your evening gown
It all gets in the way
In the way of your beauty….take off your makeup

Lover, let me touch your face
See how your lips move, see how they taste
Let your shoulders down
See how I love you, how I love my…

Lover, let me touch your skin
You are every woman and I am every man
Where no one else has been
That’s how our love goes…that’s how it’s always been

My heart is in your hands...that’s how our love goes
I’ve got no other plans…that’s how our love goes
Can I make you understand...
There’s no other lover...it’s you and no other

Let your hair fall down
Now I see natural beauty
Let me touch your skin
Touch all the places no one has ever been
Baby hold my hand
That’s how our love goes…that’s how it’s always been
Track Name: God in You
All this time you’re praying…What shall I do?
Lord, lord, lord… What shall I do?
Just ‘cuz a voice in your head spoke to you
Doesn’t mean God’s telling you what to do
That’s not God in you

Still I hear everybody saying that they’ve got the truth…
They say, “glory, glory, glory… Hallelu”
God doesn’t follow the plans that you make
That’s just a spiritual game that you play
That’s not God in you

God is love sung like a song
God is love… don’t get me wrong
Oh truth….beautiful truth
God don’t change, it’s we who do

It is we who change and we who choose
We who burden, we who bruise
God wants love, love like a fool
Love can win, love can’t lose
We need love and redemption
We need love and redemption not God as a weapon
Love and redemption in a world of religion
You learn how to talk now can you learn how to listen
That’s not God in you, no that’s not God in you

It’s love that keeps me hanging on
And it’s love that lifts my head up
It’s love that keeps my spirit up
When the world won't seem to let up
Track Name: The One I See
Thinking way back
Waiting for phones to ring with your voice on the line
I would lay back
Here your laughter, all would be good for a time

You are the one, the only one I see

Don’t you know that
If you told me there was someone else for you
I’d paint the sky black
And still your face, like the sun, would burn it blue

You are one, the only one I see

I’m spread out at your feet
You don’t have to carry the world on your shoulders
No, I’ll bear everything . . .

For you there, up around the corner
Everyone is watching, trying to get closer

You are the one, the only one I see

You should know that wherever we are
You’re the only one I see
Even in crowds where millions of people collect in form like the sea
Track Name: Child
Grandmother, she was something else
Humble and she was glamorous
Said “Hold your head high and do what you do,
There’s something about that”

Child, oh child, my child
There’s something about that

Grandmother wore a ruby ring
Taught her grandbabies how to sing
Laughed so loud that our ears would ring
She’d say “There’s something about that”

She smoked Benson and Hedges
We played games of Gin
She never would let us win
She’d say “Lessons learned are the lessons you live,
There is something about that”

I’ll see some better days and I sure make my mistakes
But I hear grandmother say “there’s something about that”
I’m fit for better days and I can’t quit my mistakes
But I hear grandmother say “There’s something about that”

Grandmother on her dying bed
She leaned down and touched my head
Said “Praise the Lord for the blood he bled,
There is something about that, child”
