We Come Right Under this Let it all come wrong Buried well It goes on, it goes on Lie as you want Make a furnace strong Howl all you want Baby arms Lucky one, Soon to be no more, How many ways Have I lured you on Waited all night For the day to come You alone I alone We come right We come right Under branches Of pitch and pine Sap your strength Didn’t miss this time Carried your voice Over deep ravines Soaked your love In gasoline You alone I alone We come right We come right

Broken Wing 04:03
Broken Wing The human sounds We make come close To falling out Our mouths No more words Your breathing slowed Losing you To the sound Cool as you want Tall as you please Be my broken wing Be my broken wing Pulled out my heart For all to see Be my broken wing Be my broken wing Nights so long I needed all to be strong Waded in to the thoes Out to the breach Kept it out of our reach Stole what hope could grow Cool as you want Tall as you please Be my broken wing Be my broken wing Pulled out my heart For all to see Be my broken wing Be my broken wing

Come On Chaos Led to the steps On lion’s breath I’ve never seen your Blood so clear It’s been a ride Move like a sea Unsteady feet, holding Fast to memory Gone with the tide Silence follows silence Coming up out of the well Silence won’t be silent Come on chaos, give me hell You’re at my side Leave me, I’ll decide Fall came in waves Sun-starved days Melted into open roads Snaking away For this I’d give Myself away Turn me to another course One I can claim Silence follows silence Coming up out of the well Silence won’t be silent Come on chaos, give me hell You’re at my side Wake up lazy eyes

Parasite 04:20
Parasite At once the lights All changed Abandoned the war Back to orphans again No medals, no more My wishes came out of your mouth My buttons came out of your bank account When I looked you up You were down on your luck When I came to you, crawling Could I be your parasite Never too soon To get back to you Now I come to you crawling Could I be your parasite We talked about the moon All it’s disguise The roof wet with dew Held on tight Your parents never let on They heard our feet on the Asphalt When I looked you up You were down on your luck When I came to you, crawling Could I be your parasite Never too soon To get back to you Then I came to you crawling Could I be your parasite

Chambers In The Canopy Eyes are playing tricks on me See figures in the branches Window frame, amphibian, Feathers underneath my skin Nerves are shredded endlessly I cannot trust the shadows Sound of every turning leaf Adding to the clamour Perfect day reflected on my wall I try to trace it All I got was paint under my nails And bleeding fingers Echoes of the birds are building Chambers in the canopy Catching flies and hammering Our teeth together endlessly All I ever wanted was to be your Ready fire escape Holding fast against your walls No one falls, I know my place All the night I walked the streets of Distant towns I’ve never been Wrote my name on every sign Show you the way back to me Holding on, forgotten days I should have read the warning signs Throw your mattress out the window Be my safety net this time All the night I walked the streets of Distant towns I’ve never been Wrote my name on every sign Show you the way back to me All I ever wanted was to be your Ready fire escape Holding fast against your walls No one falls, I know my place

Gold Leaf & Amethyst She says ‘you’re taking away All of the comfort of strangers and I know you’re not scared. I know you’re not scared.’ And on a night like no other The street lights glisten and shudder They show you they’re not scared Of what may be out there Some day, look back on this Gold leaf and amethyst Long for the days you never thought you’d miss She’s staring out to the sea To all the places she could be Far from the hum drum The bright lights of London She says ‘show me the money, I need to feel some kind of freedom, I need to feel something. I need to feel something. Some day, look back on this Gold leaf and amethyst Long for the days you never thought you’d miss You shiver and shake It always ends this way Go sell all your jewellery and Get on the train

Connecting The Fireflies Straight up for the race Parting the waves Amnesty on your mind Soldier on Without your meals Cornered a final thorn Stayed too long For any address Calico wrapped round your neck Hands at your heels Feeling the faults Bleached into the boardwalk Lie still my starry eyes Connecting the fireflies Blinded by the page Caught by the wind Up to my shins in the silt Standing still Call it a day All in a days work Lie still my starry eyes Connecting the fireflies All eyes on you tonight Connecting the fireflies

Miracle Child Should I go on again today We tear ourselves from the eyes Of the falling frame Should I praise all the chaos we made Didn’t pull on your tail just to See if it would come away Watching the waves that break Grow bigger by the day At least it always seems that way Hey, but you’ve always been a miracle child Some put a mark on you I knew you wouldn’t mind Hey, but you’ve always been a miracle child All of your failings couldn’t fail you if they tried You heard not a sound All the whole night through as they Dug a whole right under you Searching the fibres and wires Knitted in the vines Catching most all of the time Hey, but you’ve always been a miracle child Some put a mark on you I knew you wouldn’t mind Hey, but you’ve always been a miracle child All of your failings couldn’t fail you if they tried Watching the waves that break Grow bigger by the day At least it always seems that way

Perfect Silence Pulled those bridges down Made a perfect silence Voices of unknown Start to grip my mind Holding to the ropes for Another round of Weightless and hopeless Taking my pulse again Sealed into a dream No escape from the darkness The torment never sleeps Shake my cage all the night Don’t know what is real What is trust without waking I must be done here I can no longer sleep Pulled those mirrors down It’s the staring eyes that Hold me in their sights Every time I try To turn this ship around Against the swell Don’t fight it Go where the wind goes Throw off the holding ropes Slow down some, it won’t get Fixed til it falls apart Now you’re on your own Take courage in a new start Cos no-one knows you like I do It’s the little things That hold us all together When the cracks start appearing I could be made to stay If I knew what kept me I must be leaving Couldn’t explain a thing

about

“poised and mysterious and it contemplates oblivion” The New York Times

“Few releases in 2018 will possess the color and musical consideration that makes In Silver Halides a compelling listen and it seems to open more possibilities for this musical project going forward from here.” No Depression

“an album rife with beautiful soft music tip-toeing between orchestral prog rock and buttery acoustic/classicism, resulting in subtle, elegant sonority. 'In Silver Halides' projects lush excellence” SeattlePI.com

"I look forward to listening to this until I'm blue in the face.” Paste Magazine
