about

Thank you for buying our CD! Now, kindly pause it and remove it from your car stereo. Then, with some of those fancy headphones plugged into your old disc-man, sit down, close your eyes, and try again! There! Now you can hear the spaces that these songs were recorded in.

soundscape | noun
/'soun(d)scāp/
: a mix of musical and sometimes non-musical sounds creating a sound portrait of an immersive environment.

Each of these songs is a soundscape. The spaces used were meaningful to the songs' creation. We deliberately left the natural reverb, acoustics, and miscellaneous sounds that occurred in those environments.

From Paige
So, a 'Thank You' goes out to Mom, Dad, Missy, and Becky for journeying with us, listening to us, and supporting us. Thank you to our #1 fans: Julie Murphy, Christina Torbey, Stenia Trusilo, and Meagan Sachs. Thanks for never missing a show! Even the little ones. Thanks Tamara Boyes for helping me find me again (which also took all the tension out... funny how that works!) And thank you Jesus for Your timing, Your gifts, and Your perfect Love.

From Ryan
I would like to thank my parents for being so supportive throughout my musical endeavors...amongst others. I would like to thank my bandmate Paige for keeping this band together though all of our schedule changes and bandmates these past 8 years!

Track Name: Caves
Your shadow game me such a fright, cast on cave walls
Our adventure comes to a pause, I see the flaws
I’ve been here maybe in a dream, so it seems
Life and love, somewhere in between

You say it’s not so scary, not so scary
Whisper again, not so scary, not so scary

Stalactite tears drip to the floor, night and day
Haunted beings frozen in their place, to live this way
I think I’m losing how to feel, will I heal?
‘Til I’m found in purgatory

You say it’s not so scary, not so scary
Whisper again, not so scary, not so scary
You yell down, not so scary, not so scary
Tell me again, not so scary, not so scary

I’ve sold the vessels to my heart, to that one cave
And to our culture, I am a slave, down to the grave
I’d never know I was alone, was I shown?
Paid the price to call this my home

You say it’s not so scary, not so scary
Whisper again, not so scary, not so scary
I would say, do you love me, do you love me?
Say it again, do you love me, do you love me?
Track Name: Song of the Islander II
My hopes a boat, I float across the sea
Into your arms I'm wishing that we'll finally meet
I dive from my platform up in the sky
Hoping you'll catch me, hoping you'll catch me before I die

My life's a lonely island far from truth
All I have are broken memories of you
They're barely there they're barely even real
Yet I give them life with all that I feel

La di da la di da la di da

You think my smile was crafted by the years
I've been alone with all of my worst fears
Sure that's it, but there is just a tad bit more
I asked for this, I asked to smile into the shores

You think my word has died with my name
Those who knew me think that I have gone insane
But you're the fool, see sinking in your moat
A corked bottle and my words on a note

La di da la di da la di da
Track Name: Tears
I've told you once and I'll tell you again
For two and a half years I thought we were the best of friends
That's gone
It ends

Tears, my dear, tears

How to go back when there was nothing there?
You're smiling at me but I just look at you and stare
We fall
Apart

We've fallen apart
There's nothing you can do to change my heart
We've fallen apart
So has my heart

Tears, my dear, tears

My weaknesses are too much for your strengths
How much more can you take?
I see you
Give in

Tears, my dear, tears

Don't get to think that I'm the last name on your list
Again your lovely lips will be kissed
You have
The world

We've fallen apart
There's nothing you can do to change my heart
We've fallen apart
There's nothing you can do to change my heart
We've fallen apart
There's nothing you can do to change my heart
We've fallen apart

So has my heart
Track Name: I Am the Ocean
To the oceans found on my cheeks
You dive deep
To the coral reefs
I've lost you
I've lost you
I'm lost I can barely see
Where are you? Do you see me?

From the oceans flowing in my brain
There is pain
I've gone insane
I've scared you
I've scared you
I'm scared can you understand?
Take my hand from beneath the sand

Will you dive up through the pouring rain
To meet me at the shoreline of my veins
Instead you move with such buoyancy
Looking down at me
Looking right through me

Buried in the waters of my soul
There is more
At the ocean floor
What are they?
These treasures
Hidden so long from me
Please reveal all your secrecy

In the oceans traveling through your heart
You're torn apart
By her poisonous dart
She cut you
She cut you
So cut through her scathing grip
Salty water drips from your lonely lips

Will you dive up through the pouring rain
To meet me at the shoreline of my veins
Instead you move with such buoyancy
Looking down at me
Looking right through me
