Fog Song

lyrics

Asleep on a fault line
curled into the fog alone
so no one knows where I’ve fallen
Peace be the compromise
Help me find myself again
without having to look too long

When my body’s rested
I’ll know where my mind’s gone
I let my heart become
as hard as the bed I’m lying on

Home below
I watched the light dim
shining from the outside of the window
Here where the fog rolls
it falls and holds me alone

When my mind is rested
I’ll find where my light’s been
I let my heart become
as dark as the night I’m lying in

Here where my body lies alone
Where my heart fades into the fog
Here where the night won’t be as long
if I fade into the fog

It’s cold up on the fault line
Huddled in the car alone
so no one knows where I’ve fallen
Peace be the compromise
Help me find myself again
without having to look too long

They wrote, arranged, road tested, produced and released it independently, demonstrating influences from rock to Americana, reggae and Latin. It rises to deep heights and settles into a spacious melodic equilibrium. The SF Chronicle describes Owen Roberts' lyrics as "visceral" and the sound as "perfectly Californian." ... more
