about

What Clidesfeld truly was outside of the studio, during rehearsals, in between gigs, always mixing and matching instrumentation: a wholly collaborative team effort. These songs were captured during such rehearsals and were never polished or perfected. They are simply presented as is.

Track Name: She's in the Garage
She's in the garage and it's alright
She's in the garage and it's fine
It's not mine
It's not mine.

She's in the garage and she's right
She's in the garage and she's fine.
It's not mine.
It's not fine.

She'd walked through the door.
Saw me dissolved on the floor
Like before, she said:
What're you doing here?
What're you doing here?
What're you doing here?

In the garage, there's no light.
Hope she's fine.
Choking on smoke
Please don't go.

They come out and pull her in.
Smoke is pouring in.
I turn to my son
And they pull her away.

He looks to me and says:
Is she okay?
Is Mommy okay?
Is Mommy okay?
Is Mommy okay?
Track Name: Treehorse
Just in time for sinner's bliss
His absence of benevolence
Strike the one, strike the only
Upside down the ground below

And shakes in awkward silence
And then makes the rigid awkward
Consider the hollow, consider the holy
Upside down the sky below

See you here in this place, in this place (wanted place)
I see you here in this place
With that look on his face

See you in this place, in this place (wanted place)
I see you here in this place
With that look on your face
Something that I can't trace back to you

Absence makes the mind grow stronger
Brooding shakes the rigid silence
Consider the hollow, consider holy
Strike the one, strike the only

Strike the one, strike the only
Track Name: Date & Knowledge
We'll start this slowly
How many words can I spill at first?
Put questions to better use
For the air to be filled with hers

Her answers were short
Padded with tics and expectant
Without punctuation
Save for a laugh she was expecting

The words were there
But I still sensed a disconnect
The silence was never less
Than awkward in retrospect

I left my credibility
Back in the place I accepted it

I'm full of things
But every year pushes me to accept
That 'things' are just 'shit'
Of which I'm filled an infinite depth

The moment that you realize
You're telling someone that already knows
Track Name: Fire & Ice
There was fire in her eyes
And it burned my brain
Tried to realize what happened
And I couldn't feel pain

She walks next to me for a moment
And the moment is gone
When humanity is exhausted
About to withdraw

She was fire and ice welded to stone
Paid the price of misfortune
Now I'm all alone

I tried blending madness with reason
And it worked for a while
A stain on the mattress indecent
To show my desire
Track Name: The Carnie
When I was a-wandering, I saw you there
I wasn't outside or holding hands
When I see you with me here
I know nothing of you and me

Do you know anything about the end?
I heard of one boy take me there
Do you know it's nothing to be with me
I don't owe anything, you and me
Track Name: Some Simple Entity
Rippling
Some simple entity
Some simple entity
Some simple entity

Some simple entity
Some simple entity
Kinda shy to me
Some without a lead

Some, some
Some simple entity
Some simple entity

When I lie
When I lie
When I lie
When I lie

Some simple entity
Some and instantly
Some simple entity
All inside of me

Some simple entity
Some simple entity
Simple entity
Some in me

Some, some, some, some

Try to see
Hard to see
Pulling inside and out of me
Some in soon
Sight of me
The whole of me and the part of me
Some assumed that part of me
The whole in me and the part of me
Some inside, some in part
The whole of me and the part of me
Oh

Some simple entity
Pulling inside and out of me
Some in soon, some in part
The whole of me and the part of me

Some simple entity
Slowly inside and out of me
Some in part, some in two
The whole of me and the part of me
Track Name: I'm Here to Listen
Excuse me
Is he here?
I need to see him
Where is he?
Where is he?

Is he here?
Is he..
