Recorded at The Tree House during the Buddro session in 2017-2018. Engineered, mixed, and mastered by Joshua Manis.


I knew it must be just ahead, more and more sights are triggering
little fragmented movies
It sounds just like a summer night, crickets sing in a yellow light
it feels good to listen
I stepped out, the smells, they got me good
twenties, teens, and my childhood
doesn't feel like they're linear
They're stacked, this piece on top of that, building something not lying flat hoping it's something that's better than bad.

Never ending little list of chores, tack on more
Keeps me spinning, keeping me upright, propped upright
Occupied, don't know when I stopped dreaming
It just kinda faded.

Summer comes, and I recall the way I was
I'm over overthinking my flaws
Summer ends, and I move on - the way time does
I try to do my best, then I'm gone.

(Hold me upright)
