lyrics

I was looking at my palm
contemplating my fate
I was standing on a mountaintop
straddling tectonic plates
I dove into the ocean
through a break in the clouds
And landed on a wave as it was breaking
back up on the ground

Lying on my back
looking up where the stars were
Knowing if I let myself go
I might see even farther
My breath was deep
and I felt my pulse on the balls of my feet
I was more awake then asleep at last
Looking through anything that I could see past
Kicking back on the grass

Hold the door, I’m coming home
Hold the door, I’m coming home
Hold the door, it won’t be long
Hold it wide, I’m coming inside

I’ll be standing on my hands
with all the blood in my face
Up on a mountaintop
straddling tectonic plates
I’ll dive into the ocean
through a break in the clouds
And land on a wave as it breaks
back up on the ground

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
