dagro Really pleasing voice coupled with wonderful instrumentals. Very somber I'd say. Favorite track: cascade spilling.

Bralph Derek, the talented frontman/guitar player of Owl Paws, doesn't fail to impress with his first full length solo release. The lo fi recording technique only adds to the morose quality of Derek's voice. The addition of piano makes this a perfect eery album to listen to on rainy days. Superb warm sounds for your ears to soak in, I will always enjoy these tracks. I love the interlude track let love go as well as hill ridden skyline. Favorite track: hill ridden skyline.

Track Name: acting right
i now recognize i have a problem
these things i haven't held much
i hold them now
i couldn't ever be the one to love you right
i couldn't ever know i wasn't acting right
i couldn't ever know i wasn't acting right
Track Name: cascade spilling
cascade spilling still feeling the clouds
where my vacancy hides
pulling me back down
is this not what you wanted?
is this not what you need?
all my sentiment returned, a mirror reflecting
oh no

we've left all loss in anguish
torn by the turning of the tides
we can surrender now, and let go of it all
but c'mon we haven't gone far enough
We haven't gone far enough

strange hard feelings settled in the dust
blood in the foot prints
ran just to fall
wilted in summer
on the river bed
floated down in love
but washed up dead
oh no

we've left all loss in anguish
torn by the turning of the tides
we can surrender now, and let go of it all
but c'mon we haven't gone far enough
We haven't gone far enough
Track Name: murmured thru the ages
ignore the pulse ingrained your heart
to see the truth is to feel the confusion of the earth
bylaws written
statements murmured scrambling your thoughts
intention scraped by chin got caught

i'm torn up, jaw hurts
been hiding out so damn long
if we all keep on thinking of only ourselves
we're gonna burn this place to the ground

when you love your currency more than your spirit
don't where it came from but you're so glad to hear it
all these bylaws written murmured through the ages
it's so hard to live without your name in the pages

i'm torn up, jaw hurts
been hiding out so damn long
if we all keep on thinking of only ourselves
we're gonna burn this place to the ground
Track Name: all i have
it must be something
you didn't say and you won't explain now
it's easier to run away
directionless, lost at sea
alone alone is where we must be

and i know i've given all i could
but you know i'd give you all i have

so cold and clearly defined
i couldn't ever do you like that
the willing of my heart pretending
we're better than begging for some answers
when you hit the road i couldn't run away
without you
my love where are you now?

and i know i've given all i could
but you know i'd give you all i have
Track Name: white flower
smoking till i fall asleep sitting up in my bed
choked when i looked for a face at 3 am again
its gone from bad to worse to fixed now
the white flower can't rehearse the spring coming now
Track Name: hill ridden skyline
with one eye shut
i led you through
a pitch black void
to an empty room
with all we own
in one small box
you held my hand
and i sang a song

the hill ridden skyline
swallows my pride
as i leave
the dark behind

morning wake wide eyed
with a weight on my chest
the sun it burns the concrete
until the rain comes
the storm is still the same

the hill ridden skyline
swallows my pride
as i leave
the dark behind
Track Name: day dream
while i sleep
i peel
the paint
where it rises
the dreams i keep unknown
the tension holds disguises

i could never believe my own words
all apologies coerced
now I'm threading this guilt like silk
a hollow day dream
a dark night still

washed ashore
alone
in time
to witness the shipwreck
no where to run
return
your conscience holds your vices

i could never believe my own words
all apologies coerced
now I'm threading this guilt like silk
a hollow day dream
a dark night still
a hollow day dream
Track Name: poison poetry
i never took the medicine you gave me
i left it on the shelf
its poison poetry
your loss of words distracts me
your loss of words distracts me
turn away run towards the light
and off the map
we don't fit don't fight
and don't come back
heartbeat strong keep beating
heartbeat strong keep bleeding
i cant go now
a day without your face
like an addict hides his ways i cant escape
the weight of the waves
turn away run towards the light
and off the map
we don't fit don't fight
and don't come back
heart beat strong keep beating
heart beat strong keep bleeding
