about

Katia and I wrote a beautiful track. End of story.

weeeelll...just before that, we met at her apartment and brainstormed what we might want to write about, talked about what we had been feeling and thinking, etc...and a week later we had this. we tried once recording and it didn't work out, so this is the second effort and I personally think it's damn near perfect.

lyrics
A seed doesn't know it's a seed
it doesn't conceive the possibility of trees
when a heart rips open and it bleeds
there's nothing but confusion, the pain, and the heaves (x2)

the soil spills in and reality shifts
and just in that moment thinkin' that'll be it
this is the end, that inevitable death
and of course it is, when you're settlin' for less

but for the portion who believe in the stretch
from here to there, they can see how it connects
to somethin' greater than th emoment full of stress
beyond horizon and the steps to the next

A seed doesn't know it's a seed
it doesn't conceive the possibility of trees
when a heart rips open and it bleeds
there's nothing but confusion, the pain, and the heaves (x2)

when you're there, how will you know?
if you can never make it then there's no where to go
when you're unredeemed in the dirt alone
and the discontentment's the grit in between your bones

if you make it then you made it and it's already done
against the pressure of the earth to the light of the sun
reach to the light
for the light of the sun

but we don't really know that we're seeds
we don't perceive the possibilities, indeed
when a heart rips open and it bleeds
it must be the end, the fateful moment when we leave (x2)

the horizon is always the horizon
unachievable, that's why we keep aspirin'
once we're "there", there's a new "there" ahead
and here we are, it kind of messes with your head

the perpetual here is the desire and the doubt
the passion and the movement that keeps us reaching out
stagnation breeds disease when you ain't namin' it
and stayin' here without a goal can be dangerous...

(hook and bridge repeat)
