1.
Everything was a sea of Indigo From the beach The dolphins swam next to the boats a sign of their respect Beseeched around her When the world she created left She didn't seem to notice She let the sandbags go and rose After she dove into the Ashley On a Spring day that just awoke couldn't see through the back of her hand Helen in her twenties passed that on to me Made examples of her own she knew nothing of the old Just what's in this photograph Trapped in a photograph Helen on the beach Still in her twenties With something in her hair She passed that onto me She swam next to the boats She knew nothing of the old She couldn't see me looking back She couldn't see that

I'm on the surface with a houndstooth purpose but it's gotten clearer from the start You can call me lightning, because I've been running from the sky I've just been waiting for my moment to arrive. Restore me to my youth As I touchdown and hideout Among the trees And capture the remnants Of an engine puttering out Whatever's left of me
3.
Rings of Age 01:21
It's the hernia I've never seen the decay that's inside of me It's rings of age I lived to etch and burn Bolted to the floor These feet don't want to work anymore When it's nonsense Speech slurred in all caps In as few words as I can Get to the point And crawl back into bed I sway back and forth And I don't even know what for Indecision takes its toll You know I know This leads us to nowhere Near where we saw ourselves 10 years ago
4.
You're scared of what comes next it's a normalcy I've been there before Counting the ones that you have left on your hands is a wake up call Before they've all moved on Lets make the most of what's to come We can pretend to be invincible Couldn't plan the inevitable So you chose the far country met Former Mayors and Delegates 9 minutes from Keflavik 5000 feet in between The suns still out I didn't get much sleep Drank Viking™ beer In a Viking ship I stayed up until you reappeared On the back steps That was two years ago and now I've returned So much has happened since I think you're better Sometimes it's hard to tell It's just who you are And you'll figure it out But I'm here if you need it I'll stay if you want me to

about

A Great Lake separates the members of Mush, but that hasn't stopped the Chicago and Grand Rapids based band from crafting some fun off-kilter pop jams. Formed after discussing how sick Vagrants Records use to be, Mush strives to keep it real and make the songs they want to hear. Maybe you will too.

Peace, Love &
Protect Your Brand™
