ZERO NULL MONO ONE I don’t wanna bother you I don’t wanna bother you But can you tell me what you’re gonna do Tell me what you’re gonna do I don’t wanna bother you I don’t wanna bother you But man I see this light in you Man it burns straight through In two years four years six years time In two years four years six years time The noise you make the quiet life The noise you make the quiet life In two years four years six years time In two years four years six years time The noise you make the quiet lies The noise you make the quiet lies Zero Null Mono One Zero Null Mono One Zero Null Mono One Zero Null Mono One Zero Null Mono One Zero Null Mono One Zero Null Mono One Zero Null Mono One Zero Null Mono One Zero Null Mono One Zero Null Mono One

Call 03:16
CALL I don't ever call When you want me to I don't ever fall the way you taught me to I don't ever call I don't try much at all But I am never dull despite The bad reviews And I wonder if you know I Push myself to the side When you're on the line I don't ever want The way you want me to But I am never small unless I talk to you Under secret vaults Hidden by you Are memories of the lies that tried To be the truth And I wonder if you know I Push myself to the side When you're on the line I don't ever call When you want me to I don't ever fall the way you taught me to

Bigger Heart 03:10
BIGGER HEART A bigger heart Takes up some more room Tissue that’s scarred Needs the space to house the wound But a bigger heart Right now’s got a lot of work to do But growin’ it’s hard Surrounded by pictures that they drew So much out there to be sure of So much out there to be made up But a bigger heart Feels the tides before they bloom Like an aftershock Premonitions of what’s left to do Isn’t it sharp Everything they knew Time to crawl out of the dark Show our faces Integrate our muse So much out there to be sure of So much out there to be made up But a bigger heart Isn’t so far from you Yeah growin it’s hard But not if what we say is what we do Say is what we do

Thieves 05:15
THIEVES 3 feet was when they made you stow Each day the unmarked presence known Over the years of course it grew Elbowed out seedlings breaking through So many whispers in your ear The tendrils strong they persevered Until there just was no more room The pressure built until you knew But the seeing was treason to you But now but now but now but now... No more keys for the thieves Of course you'll peel this line by line Disavow the image in your mind But either way you'll feel it close The beast that you cursed her to host But in the end this was the plan You didn't know then but now you can There's nothing left for you to less She's putting on her best dress Swaying out in the west She's putting on her best dress Swaying out in the west But how but how but how but how No more keys for the thieves No more keys for the thieves But now but now but now but now You come along...

Matter 04:08
MATTER Just the right light - just the right lens Just the right place - just the right stance Get it up close - get what it says Someone might write - someone's missing Just the right light - just the right lens Just the right place - just the right stance Get it up close - get what it says Someone might write - someone's missing So - make it count - Matter If you look close then you'll find The story 'bout the time You made up in your mouth In the library downtown Where you dropped off the kids You dropped off the kids But do you know It comes and goes But do you know In the way - in the way you see me Just the right light - just the right lens Just the right place - just the right stance Get it up close - get what it says Someone might write - someone's missing Just the right light - just the right lens Just the right place - just the right stance Get it up close - get what it says Someone might write - someone's missing So make it count - Matter

Wave 04:00
WAVE We met on a wave You were higher that day than the ones from before You liked it that way The arc of the water that took us to shore We met on a wave Didn’t know it was the calm before the storm But I liked it that way Never knowing if we’d ever win the war Time keeps shifting As we’re drifting on… The call came from Jane Outlining the tape that she ripped from the sword You took the blade Like you did every time it happened before The walking away Slow enough so we could see what we ignored And the cries of the saints Unsure if we’d ever win the war Time keeps shifting As we’re drifting on… What’s on your mind What you trying to find Do you know why I’ll never forget you I’ll never forget you
7.
Notice 04:36
NOTICE I own something that you might not I bought something I didn’t want Put my money on the counter Grabbed a bag and I walked Never trying to notice What I was I give way to what makes most sense The burning of sage, whispering tenants Gotta pick and choose wisely ‘cause The trip down there’s been planned Still I’m never trying to notice What I am I’m never trying to notice What I am But I will never know what it’s like for you One sum counting the days before Like dominoes splayed on the parquet floor Gotta pick and choose wisely even though There’s always more Still I’m never trying to notice The door I’m never trying to notice The door But I will never know what it’s like for you But I will never know what it’s like for you But I get the sense you feel it too But I will never know what it’s like for you

Whir 05:29
WHIR Each house has a different whir AC - evap cooler Pass each one the sound's a blur Another night in the desert Another night in the desert Street globes fill up with cream The sky is a movie screen The woes of creosote are sweet Another night in the heat Another night in the heat And then the sun lays down to bed And then the sun lays down to bed And then the sun lays down to bed And then the sun lays down to bed And then the sun lays down to bed And then the sun lays down to bed You aren’t the only ones You aren’t the only ones You aren’t the only ones Gamblers play and minstrels croon Hustlers in dark saloons Mystical and sweet the moon Another night with you Another night with you Another night with you

Warranty 04:00
WARRANTY I got the full warranty Life’s getting easy Each season planting trees Peeling the skins off the nourished seeds I never thought I could Give just myself this much good Getting confused now who is who And what’s the next theory I should prove All I wanted now comes calling All I knew Keeps breaking with every turn of the screw When it’s far away You don’t have to know what to say It’s hard to notice when you won’t stop and see All of the lives you made pretty Wielding the blade to cut through the weeds Babe, that wasn’t easy Isn’t it strange when it appears You’re riddled with shame and so insecure Despite the pain and toil and choices That brought you here All I wanted now comes calling All I knew Keeps breaking with every turn of the screw When it’s far away You don’t have to know what to say

Open 04:31
OPEN I trusted it ‘cause I was just a kid Only now do I understand what that did I always thought it was just your interest Pickin’ me apart Just curious But does it really matter anyway It’s almost done and I’m so far away But is it right to keep putting on this face Can’t pretend it hasn’t changed But I’ll fly over the water I’ll get lost in the motion And who and how don’t matter I’m open Strawberries on a Wednesday No more Santa Claus but we can go swimming Orange and yellow and legs that fell too close together Once it got started it got pretty hard to find her Can’t pretend it hasn’t changed Can’t pretend it hasn’t changed But I’ll fly over the water I’ll get lost in the motion And who and how don’t matter I’m open

The gorgeous vocals and tight musicianship pull you in to listen closely, to mull the words, and deeply appreciate the profoundly personal stories she's scribed."
