about

The album is very introspective in that it explores the different sides of the human psyche. Glasswork explores how certain elements of our conscience: self-doubt, anxiety, fear, greed, addiction, and even knowledge can inhibit the realest parts of who we are: our freedom of self-expression, creativity, and love. Even our physical bodies and all their ailments can get in the way of our truest selves and the album even suggests that maybe our truest selves do not exist as humans but something else…

Track Name: Yellowtail (FMK)
I fold my kite
Yellowtail
I close my eyes
Yellowtail

Ignite my fire, marinate divine minds
Watch the chickpea fry to become nutritious
Try and try to nurture the fishes, but
Time and time again downsides up and
Up I fly like a kite, wide-eyed in the sky
So high where I cannot hide my
Yellowtail

I fold my kite
Yellowtail
I close my eyes
Yellowtail
Look at them
Ha! I can do that better so,
Imitate
I close my eyes
Yellowtail

Up I fly like a kite, wide-eyed in the sky
So high where I cannot hide

I’ve never been one to dream a dream
that wasn’t mine
I’ve never been one to reel a fish
that wasn’t right
I’ve never been one to fear the things
inside my mind
I’ve never been one to dream a dream
that wasn’t mine
Track Name: Little Brown Cloud
Fallin’ on the bottom
Of the top of the road where I saw you last I won’t spend any details
All I got is where I am today
And I’m feelin’ like I wanna just run around and play Cuz the air is so free and I’ve got the feels for ya
And I’m feelin’ like I wanna just run around and play Cuz the air is so free and I’ve got the feels for ya

You are so gold
You keep yourself hidden like a treasure Like a measure of your worth
And I’m feelin’ like I wanna just run around and play Cuz the air is so free and I’ve got the feels for ya

How can I see in the dark
When in the sun I don’t know anything
I’m waiting to breathe in all the flavors of life
I feel like I’m missing out
Crooked and broken my body don’t feel a thing

Fallin’ on the bottom
Of the top of the road where I saw you last
Track Name: Umbra
Tell me why it hurts ahh
You make me feel like I might know myself Who I am, who am I
Am I the one at fault? Am I the one at fault? I want a path of flavor Neanderthal
Tell me why it hurts ahh
The solution is unconditional love Neanderthal
But the question remains
Etched in my mind
Is this my happiness?
Tell me why it hurts ahh
Track Name: Helix
Two lines in an endless dance Caught by each eclipse’s chance Our paths are a skipping stone All aligned, connect and throw
It’s all around
It’s all around
It’s all around
It’s all around
It’s all aligned Connect and throw

How fickle of me How fickle of me How fickle of you How fickle of you

It’s all around
It’s all around
It’s all around
It’s all aligned Connect and throw

Back and forth goes the pendulum of helix
All I see is the black and white I fear the
End of the rainbow pain goes away for the phoenix Please us Venus give us the greenest fetus
Back and forth goes the pendulum of helix Speechless, never-ending thesis, can’t open the door We’re keyless, We will meet again my friend I feel it Please us Jesus give us the secret sequence
Two lines in an endless dance Caught by each eclipse’s chance Our paths are a skipping stone All aligned, connect and throw
Track Name: Leafcutter
People feel alone In telephones
But I feel it come a long way here

Take your badass cell Throw it on the ground
Dance on it, Dance on it
Take your fatass wealth Burn it up now
Dance on it, Dance on it

We believe the things that we do not want to see
We will breath all of the light from our TVs
We can’t look away the chain’s always pullin’ us
Track Name: Wannabe
Give me reasons that show me how one can succeed
I want to know how one can grow into their dreams
Cuz they aren’t that realistic I know I know
You Wannabe, act real to go higher

I skate alone into unknown skimming the sea
Every direction is empty or full maybe
Dust on the chalkboard, endless graphite on the page
You Wannabe, act real to sow fire
Track Name: Glasswork (Interlude)
I feel it cross my skin
I've felt this feeling once again my friend
Track Name: Sick Bastard
I feel it cross my skin
I've felt this feeling once again in the end
In a way, I seal my chest beneath my skin
My golden cave
Why trap my mind within this cell composed of skin?
In a way, I crease my spirit like a page
I know he taunts me

Sick thievin’ bastard
Black eels in me crawling up
Espionage fell away up inside of ya
This fragile glasswork
Enveloping everything
Cracking, but my soul’s ever young
Things are changin’ babe
Track Name: The Boy Who Melts the Sun
I’ve peeled off all of my skin now
Leafless my hide spirals down

Plagued by the lack of engines
Incessant pressure from
Leprechauns in my head like ‘La La La La La’
Lost in the labyrinth of my own mind
Pining in the dark
Liberate my
Liberate my
Liberate my
Liberate my
Liberate my
Liberate my
Liberate my mind

Fly away my Icarus
Fly into the sun
Melt the sun

Soaring high I see all the boxes filled with ants
My only companions are clouds
Forming anyone I could want
Yet still I am
Track Name: Love (Outro)
She calls my name
Peek into the box they say Wanted to do it all
She calls my name
I feel it deep in my bones Lights itself up
Made it all glow
