about

Recorded in a cold cathedral outside Anacortes, Paper Tusk envelopes romantic lamentation at its peak. The album will be available to the public through Solid Melts in both tape and compact formats in the midst of November.

Track Name: Golden Palms
My hide is coated with a foreign film
dust the pollen from your nose
my insolence exposed

To mend all them broken water holes
with the golden palms that fold like watered women
did my heart stop beating young?

But why did the menaced heart still drum?
Track Name: Offering
Does he dream about your heart?-
to be its tired heir
its best to measure one by one
the things you couldn't love

If he dreams about your hair is it all he dreams about?

By the hand of shivered water
our eyes can be in love
a brazen claw
a plague of pleading dogs

(curse this heart)-

"May the palms of broken daughters strike you down!"

My dear Maria
i'm going to lure them out

You were the first born matron of a fallen land i can't pronounce
Track Name: Purpose
Oh love,
there is no tire to your name
all the dirt in this dusty hollow-
spring time for your heart
for all them parched little mouths

Be a part
i can't be apart from your love
from all them tired little eyes

In the hour of misguided nights
that rest in my palm
there'll be no idle
no more lonesome
for my heart can't go where it is sent from
it can't stand where it is crippling
so farewell my love.
Track Name: My Idle Bed
When the ghost beside my bedpost disappears
telling ink that knows no purpose
picture me

Are my hands unclean,
is this soiled heart too much?

Whispered words once seemed familiar
return

Tangled limbs that mend together still burn

Do his eyes burn brighter beneath your arm?
take his hand and clasp together

'Steady child you'll find another...'
Track Name: Teenage Heart
And if your heart is an island of itself
i'd be the sugar on your tongue

Them jealous eyes are gone
i'd be the sugar on your tongue

When indicisive beauty is enough
i'd be the sugar on your tongue

Oh! My jealous heart,
i'd be the sugar on your tongue

What a mess we've become
i'd be the sugar on your tongue
Track Name: Promise
Oh love
if you ever come
i will write you a letter or sitxy-nine love songs
and i wont keep it all tucked away

So know if you gotta know
that my heart is my keeper
(and keep away)
cause i can't keep it all tucked away

Survive, oh survive this night!
we're just sticks in the water
my soul is cleansed

If you keep it all

(be;)
my keeper,
my prey
