about

This is a Toad the Wet Sprocket cover (done with their full permission), therefore is not free. It features my vocal debut (a little bit terrifying not gonna lie) and is my first to feature real amps, miced acoustics, and an outside producer, Jason Flaherty. Hopefully this will not be my last song to feature him. This will become part of a Covers album within the next couple months, although this is the only song that will be on Bandcamp from that album, as I am self managing and trying to track down and pay every single artist would prove rather difficult. As Distrokid, the service I use to upload my music on all other services manages all of that for everything but bandcamp, said album will not be available on bandcamp, my apologies. Enjoy.

lyrics

Where are we going, so far away
And somebody told me that this is the place
Where everything's better, everything's safe

Walk on the ocean
Step on the stones
Flesh becomes water
Wood becomes bone

And half and hour later we packed up our things
We said we'd send letters and all those little things
And they knew we were lying but they smiled just the same
It seemed they'd already forgotten we'd came

Walk on the ocean
Step on the stones
Flesh becomes water
Wood becomes bone x2

Now we're back at the homestead
Where the air makes you choke
And people don't know you
And trust is a joke
We don't even have pictures
Just memories to hold
That grow sweeter each season
As we slowly grow old

Walk on the ocean
Step on the stones
Flesh becomes water
Wood becomes bone (until end)
