Someone called up for a holy hand Word came down with a iron brand Semaphore flags ripping at the seams City in the stream Signals fall from the sky Nothing's what it seems Wait till the painted disguise dries Canticles climbing across a bed Trojan mouths chewing broken bread Telegraph wires won't carry the scream City in the stream Signals fall from the sky Nothing's what it seems Wait till the painted disguise dries Ville dans le ruisseau Rien n'est ce qu'il semble City in the stream Signals fall from the sky Just another dream Drawing you into the dye City in the stream Signals fall from the sky Nothing's what it seems Wait till the painted disguise dries

No Sister 03:02
I don't need no sister Never wanted one My brother days are done And I have so little time For holding bottles and rocking a cradle all night long Singing sleepy songs I have so little time For the sharing and the caring And photos on the wall Well she would want it all But I'd have to keep what's mine Don't need little sister Don't need big sister No sister Don't need little sister Don't need big sister No sister, no Growing up, growing out Bringing the boys around Running all over town I have so little time For her California wedding in the sun Thinking she's too young I'd have to draw the line In the sands of Manhattan and down Doheny Way To her it's child's play But it's such a hill to climb Don't need little sister Don't need big sister No sister Don't need little sister Don't need big sister No sister, no One above, one below And one on either side There's nowhere to hide I'd have to get out of that line Don't wanna be a shadow, role model, or friend Until the bitter end I have so little time For her own getting over, getting up, getting by Every day I try But I have so little time Don't need little sister Don't need big sister No sister Don't need little sister Don't need big sister Don't need little sister Don't need big sister Don't need little sister Don't need big sister No sister, no

Jetsam 04:32
No eating in the kitchen No buttering your bread (Cora, Tanya) Please put yourself to bed No high heels in the hallway No dollies on the stairs (Sarah, Maya) Please push in your chairs Come let me love you Come let me care Come let me hold you, hold you And take you everywhere Holding on, holding on, holding on to the jetsam, jetsam Floating on, floating on, floating on with the jetsam, jetsam Throw it off, throw it off, throw it off Say nothing 'bout the plastic Say nothing 'bout the bags (Vera, Lana) Don't tear off the tags You need another raincoat Another pair of shoes (Clara, Rosa) How many did you lose? Come let me love you Come let me care Come let me hold you, hold you And take you everywhere Holding on, holding on, holding on to the jetsam, jetsam Floating on, floating on, floating on with the jetsam I don't know where to put this I don't know where it goes (Anna, Liza) Make sure that no one knows I don't know what to tell you I don't know what to say (Eva, Nora) Make it go away Come let me love you Come let me care Come let me hold you, hold you And take you everywhere Holding on, holding on, holding on to the jetsam, jetsam Floating on, floating on, floating on with the jetsam, jetsam Throw it off, throw it off, throw it off Come let me love you Come let me care Come let me hold you, hold you Jetsam, Jetsam

Catalina 03:05
Backs to the harbor Past Angel's Gate Hands on the rail holding tight White wash spray in the morning light Two seasick sailors Just watch and wait With wind-teared eyes courting land Drag the seaweed through the sand In Catalina In Catalina In Catalina The winter's warm Two seaside lovers Antipate What lies behind a motel door They don't wonder anymore In Catalina In Catalina In Catalina The winter's warm Back to the harbor Past Angels' Gate The sun goes down without a fight New moon lost in the boundless night

about

The bulk of Seahorse was recorded in my living room during the summer of 2018.

The basic tracks for Disappear were recorded in 2007 with piano and backing vocal overdubs completed in October 2019.

Parts of City in the Stream were recorded in 2016 at Sean McNamee's home studio.

Ross Nueske helped mix Derelict at his studio.

Cover artwork by Abigail Tansill Kelley.
