about

Another awesome collaboration with King Everything this last month.

This one is pretty friggin' rock and roll, you guys.

He suggested we take a "fuzzy, lo-fi" approach, and to me, that translated to "only bass guitars" and "lots of distortion." I left the acoustic guitar in, to varying degrees depending on the track, but every other sound on the album is a bass guitar and/or an effects pedal.

There are two versions of If I Cry and More For Us To Do - the ones here are the first versions. The ones in the Gapless Mix are the second versions. You can also find the second versions (as well as listen to the original rough draft versions of the songs!) by checking out the album on King Everything's page: kingeverything.bandcamp.com/album/sevrdhed-dreams

Track Name: Sellin' Wine
i don't mind sellin' wine to the layman or the priest
i don't see it as a problem, i just fulfill a need
'cuz one by one, they all pass away, they beg their souls to go
their stubborn friends sadly say "please, please no!"

live life, show love, don't be sad
live life, it won't change, no need to be mad, no need to be mad

the small lines in the sky recall the boater's course
the dark sea will remind me that that's the driving force

live life, show love, don't be sad
live life, it won't change, no need to be mad, no need to be mad

i don't mind sellin' wine to the layman or the priest
i don't see it as a problem
i just fulfill
a need
Track Name: Said He, Said She
part of me wishes to part with ambitions and simply live
theater rumbles and high-kickin' bungles already give
economy gravestones are humming the same tones as Em and Liv
look out behind you, it's bound to remind you of him

may i feel said he, i'll squeal said she
just once said he, it's fun said she

look at my eyes and tell me that there's no hope
drive to the nook and there is a well-worn microscope

may i touch said he, how much said she
a lot said he, why not said she
let's go said he, not too far said she
what's too far said he, where you are said she
may i stay said he, which way said she
like this said he, if you kiss said she

visible scratches are worn like badges by lesser men
coddling foxes in unopened boxes of letterhead
simple directions for longer erections are on her bed
crazier stories have managed to bore me again

may i move said he, is it love said she
if you're willin' said he, but you're killin' said she
but it's life said he, but your wife said she
now said he, ow said she
tip-top said he, don't stop said she
oh no said he, go slow said she

play me like a lesser role in the sand
but do not bite a wrecking ball in your hand

come, said he
um, said she

you're divine, said he

you are mine, said she
Track Name: Humble Buffalo
helen your beauty is to me, like which i've seen before
gentle streams into a perfume sea, nearly beaten they lead to the shore
to my own familiar door

don't be afraid to stroll away
don't be afraid to be afraid

on streams and creeks I tend to roam, your ginger hair, your classic face
your gentle waves have brought me home, to the beauty of my native place
to the humble buffalo

don't be afraid to stroll away
don't be afraid to be afraid
don't be afraid to stroll away
don't be afraid to be afraid

through the window i catch a glimpse, how gorgeously i see you stand
i know my hand will hold your hand, and there remain until and since
woman and man
Track Name: Our Mixed Dust
when my hair reached my eyes, when my chest was strong
you noticed something inside, and we laughed hard and long

and how i miss you

we married not-so-young, we never looked back far
a daughter and then a son, still wonder where we are

and how i miss you

my dust will mix with yours, the wind will drop the leaves
i wait for your return, i'm sure you wait for me

and how i miss you

when my hair reached my eyes, when my chest was strong
you noticed something inside, and we laughed hard and long

and how i miss you
how i miss you
Track Name: Where the Hush Remains
there's always a hush in our pockets, there's always a friend when the cannonballs fly
and priests can protect more than rockets, though honesty begs us to sever ties

how shall i hold onto my soul, so it does not touch yours
how shall i move it up over you, and onto other things of course?
i would like to tuck it away, in some quiet unknown place
somewhere where the hush remains
when you move me

the violin under his chin, and us like his bow
on which violin and with which one of them
are we making music? i don't know.
yet everything which touches us, every single little such and such
unites us so very much
and you move me

there's always a hush in our pockets, there's always a friend when the cannonballs fly
and priests can protect more than rockets, though honesty begs us to sever ties
Track Name: In Life After Life, In Age After Age
set aside the feelings of the crescent moon, realize the distance is hard to gauge
ask the sky to let this not end soon
in life after life, in age after age

try ignoring all that's come 'til now, and what we know happens on the final page
resist temptation to try to find out how
in life after life, in age after age

if you know most everything you'll burn, your blood will bubble up in a holy rage
you'll soon regret learnin' all you've learned
in life after life, in age after age

but maybe others will join the cause, releasing each prisoner from his cage
stealin' every victory from certain loss
in life after life, in age after age

i live in the moment, as much as i can
live in the moment, i can only be one man

through the wild times of turmoil, force yourself to smile and welcome the change
keep your faith in sun and sea and soil
in life after life, in age after age
naysayers will want the glory themselves, they'll try belittling it by callin' you brave
all the while winking and smirking like elves
in life after life, in age after age

in life after life, in age after age
Track Name: If I Cry [RE Mix]
love if i cry, it will not matter
love if you laugh, i will not care
i'm a fool to even think about it
but it's good to feel you there

love in my sleep, i dream of waking
i was afraid, alone, and scared
if i could remain asleep forever
it's good to feel you there
Track Name: We're On Top
any time i want, i can step on a bug
any time they want, they can hide in my rug
i can take 'em out one or two at a time
when we're fast asleep, on our blood they can dine

well i can wipe 'em all out, with poisons and sprays
but if they choose to attack, they can kill the whole human race

each of us thinks that we're on top
each of us thinks that we're on top
each of us thinks that we're on top, but we're not, we're not.
Track Name: Trace the Mirror
believe me if all those endearing young charms which i gaze on so fondly today
were to change by tomorrow and fleet in my arms, like fairy gifts fading away
you would still be adored as this moment as art, let your loveliness fade as it will
and around the dear ruin each wish of my heart, Would entwine itself verdantly still

trace the mirror that's already here, with intensity of unknown zest
face the pile of eagerness, like the spirit has never left

it’s not while beauty and youth are your own, and your cheeks are unspoiled by tears
that the passion and faith of a soul can be known, to which time will but make you more dear
no, the heart that has truly loved won’t forget, but as truly loves on to the close
as the sunflower turns on her god, when he sets, the same look which she turned when he rose

trace the mirror that's already here, with intensity of unknown zest
face the pile of eagerness, like the spirit has never left

trace the mirror that's already here
Track Name: More For Us To Do [RE Mix]
ring... ring... ring...

if she springs, she's spring
if i call her love, she's love
and i won't want for anything

for me, for you - it would be nice if there was more for us to do.

that's the girl i know, doing everything and anything
hold your head up, don't be afraid of what the witches think
for me, for you - it would be nice if there was more for us to do.

for me, for you - it would be nice if there was more for us to do!
Track Name: I Guess I Think I Sort of Love You
my river runs to the deep blue sea, who's waiting there to take me
you could never hold me close enough, or force yourself to be

the same stuff that i like, the same things i do
but i guess i think i sort of love you.

wanna try to toe the line, you can be anything that you want
the little devil worked her way inside, now look at everything she's got
i'm lookin' up to the Lord, She's lookin' at me to

she would do anything. she would take you.

the same stuff that i like, the same things i do
but i guess i think i sort of love you.
i guess i
think i
sort of
love
you.
Track Name: Knock Me To My Knees
will i awaken from this sleep, if i don't please don't look
on my nightstand for the book, that pushed me off the end so deep

knock me to my knees, or hold the flood
knock me to my knees, i go in blood

speak your words with heart and grace, it makes no difference if they're true
they'll attribute what they want to you, and soon forget your pretty face

knock me to my knees, or hold the flood
knock me to my knees, i go in blood

i wish i'd spent more time in bars, the unfortunate last words i said
moments before they found me dead, moments before i chased the stars

knock me to my knees, forgive
knock me to my knees, forget
knock me to my knees, forgive
knock me to my knees, forget
