about

'Put Me Together' is a six-track narrative about a season of loss and acute feelings and questions that arose on its part. It is entirely subjective in its story. It is surprisingly general in the riddles and statements it makes about grief.

It is the death that comes before rising. It is the letting go, the giving up, the giving in to the lament. It is the begging that something - anything! - will come along the way, though it isn’t promised.

Arrangements are eclectic in scope and paradoxical in nature. They are loud when they are quietest and quiet when they are loudest. They are meant to bewilder and to distress, to charm and to entrance. They are happy and sad all at once.

Ambient noise is littered throughout, as if to make a statement about the distinctive spatial quality of grief - how it becomes anchored to and triggered by the places where it forms.

Lyrics are unflinchingly honest -- at times unbearable to a listener governed by the pleasure principle. They are both hyperreal and totally symbol. They are both rational and irrational, both reverent and irreverent.

They are a snapshot about what was true for a time and is no longer -- about a temporary stay in a transient place -

about a guest room.

Track Name: Put Me Together
the first time I cried in her arms was outside by the coffeehouse I was baptized that night in tears of new life and I passed from my mother to the love of another I was born again love falls from heaven like manna to the desert in our wanderings I tried to hoard it but it spoiled in the morning so I complained to god rather never love at all than to lose it I wish that I could machine things by my own sheer will as hard as I try it only seems I find I am powerless to cause the way in which I'm loved or left behind the last time I cried in her arms I asked why she was breaking me apart now I need to put it all back together again

Track Name: With Me
streetlights shine onto my soul as I'm driving down 65 green signs drift above like g h o s t s while I'm crossing over the county line you're with me tonight you kiss me lean across the car crash your soft lips into mine you touch me dance your fingers down every peak and valley of my spine heaven likes to tell me I'm alone uses every road to prophesy satan only needs I throw a bone wants to bring you here with me tonight you're with me in my mind

she crashed her car into my house she took the front door down into my living room I was out of town my roommate was on the couch and stared as she came to sirens spread through the neighborhood men dressed in uniforms asked their questions the neighbors were standing on their porch heard the whole report as she said sorry when she fell asleep at the wheel

Track Name: Holy Saturday
the morning after lying in my bed I called my mother she listened as I wept will I ever be the same again could I ever be the same of all our failures and all our many pains losing a lover it wastes us the most away the morning after lying in a tomb I rolled myself over and took a step apart from you I will always love you
