about

The first installment of the "7plus7equals7" series. 7 songs for 7 dollars, no more than I tunes, but you get a physical copy and proceeds go to releasing a 7 inch for this amazing band from Billings MT. Pay more if you wish to help accomplish this. Comparisons to The Exploding Hearts and Guided by Voices

Recorded in early 2014 by Ryan Shmedly Maynes at Club Shmed, Missoula, MT.
Mastered at Hanzsek AV by Chris Hanzsek.

Track Name: Receiver
The wait's so long
The pull's so strong
to stand in line,
lockstep in time

I'm on the floor
I'm waiting for
a hidden hand
to cover my eyes

and I'm feeling so right

I sense your aim
I anticipate
through vein
tap into my mind

Projecting out
a silent shout
'till I receive
a store of that light

and I'm feeling so right

Come guide my hand
Come take my arm
Come speak the word, restore my peace, set loose our bonds

and I'm feeling so right
Track Name: EOS
She was growing here before
before you recognized her frame
before you stood fast in her way
before you changed her very name

She will throw it from the core
and overtake your lurid gaze
though you wonder where it grows
You will never eat your own

You'll never understand
the blood that's on your hands
Track Name: Prairie is an Island
Everything that's beautiful
is so far away from here and
everything that I know,
so why do I stay
around here

When I know there's better days
and the outside lies in wait
and time just fades away...

Caught me wishing in a well
They say that "staying ain't left behind"
But every story that they tell
Just covers them up in lies
around here

When I know there's better days
and the outside lies in wait
and time just fades away...

The prairie is an island

And I know there's other lives
I'm ignoring all the signs
and time just passes by...
Track Name: Do I
Do I keep you up at night?
How do I make it right?

Since I moved away from that town
All I think about is coming back around
Track Name: Bird to Land
I'm waiting for my bird to land
Please return to my hand

Something old and something dear,
whisper it into my ear

Speak to me in tongues,
love from iron lungs

You want to know it,
and learn it,
and drink deep from that well.
Oh well,
you can have it.
Track Name: Never Up to You
I know you're gonna like it
I know you're gonna try it too
I know you're gonna buy it
I know you're gonna fall for the ruse

Bite the line, pass the lie
'Cause it's better than the truth, don't I know
Play the part, be the mark (from the start)
'Cause it's never up to you, don't I know
Track Name: The Things We Used to Hate
I don't wanna go
and I don't wanna change
I wanna always stay the same

I don't wanna go
and I don't wanna change
I don't wanna turn into the things we used to hate

Sometimes my field of sight can't meet your eyes
And I can't say it's ever a surprise
