about

The idea for this ep originated after we performed at the Vision and Grit farm fest in Jewett City back in August. The outdoor setting consisting of a stage made from timber in the middle of the woods, surrounded by trees, ushered in the senses that served to inspire this recording. After returning home from the weekend festival, I was flipping through snapshots on my phone when I stopped on one. The picture was of a campfire gathering from that weekend. The photo was blurred and somewhat eerie in it's vibe. Nevertheless, it sparked an emotion in me that left an impression and thus the idea for the 'Wilderness' ep was set in motion.
- Lou -

'Wilderness' poured out emotionally and urgently. It was a new experience for me, as the songs seemed to write themselves. A gift of understanding from the depths of the self. 'Wilderness', in the beginning, was to encourage free bits of wild, un-landscaped songs, an inspiration of wild nature. It became a reflection of multiple ideas of wilderness. Specifically the wilderness in your mind or heart, the places you don't normally go, the places that are virtually untouched.

Track Name: War
War is coming to our home
disguise the lies with confidence so bright
your light so confined
taken over slowly like a clouded veil
War is coming

Take a stand
War
let us stand

They're taking from the land
They're taking from the man
they'll steal it from a dying child's hand
So we'll plead
we'll beg to hide
in the artificial womb
of a fixed design

War is here
the final battle for control

It's time to face the truth
I know it's hard to believe
stay we can go on
brace for war
brace for war

Look into my eyes
remember your light
shines so bright
and in our last breath
under the fog
just hold each other tight
I'll see you on the other side

(audio clip - Vandana Shiva)

It's time to face the truth
I know it's hard to believe
stay we can go on
brace for war
brace for war

(repeat chorus)
Track Name: Under Burning Sun
Who was bound
who awoke into the wild morn
unchained and not afraid
free to chase
free to prey
unseen to eyes
it moves into the light
with need to get back to the water's edge
waterfall

It's coming for you
with nowhere left to run
underneath the burning sun

Save me darling
keep me safe and alive
we can still belong
and roam beneath this dusted battleground
see me charred in human shame
with the want to be
the want to stay
the want to play
only for you

It's coming for you
with nowhere left to run
under burning sun

life
so alive
to taste the air of the wild wind
even in a whisper
in a dream to taste
the wild
the wild
I'd do anything

who was bound
who awoke into the wild morn
unchained
not afraid
Track Name: Distance
Distance to begin
and distance could never still those green eyes
from crossing though the door
the door that stands between the two walls within
sunlight don't deceive when
night falls and the heart of the rain
is beating through my veins
I can't deny this feeling
I can't hide away

she is calling out for more
she is calling out for more
she knows my name
she is calling me for more
she is crying out for more
she tastes of rain

I'm never gonna fall too far inside her dream
it's never gonna rain too hard on me
I'm never gonna fall too far inside her dream
she's never gonna reign to haunt me
and I can see her standing in the doorway
patient just to prove it to me
and I'm patient just to prove it to her
Track Name: Forward On
Bad night sign
you won't destroy me
I know I'll feel real again
one more time
just for a memory
at this point it's only
forward on

Bad night sign
you won't destroy me
I know I'll feel real again
one more time
just for a memory
at this point it's only
forward on
only forward on

no more walking around it
I hold it all in the attitude
took a while to notice
my fear become you
at the very least pretend
no one will say you never tried
try try try
dry your eyes
try try try
dry your eyes

bad night sign
you won't destroy me
I know I'll feel real again
one more time
just for a memory
at this point it's only
forward on
Track Name: Wilderness
White cloud
hanging tree
you stand over me
how I've longed
to be free

behind the twisted veil
the pale fine lines
how I've wanted
to be free

and when you smile
the way you do
reminds me how
oh how I've failed you
and though you will never
let me go
alone into the wild
wilderness

we stood on the brink
the edge of the knife
pressed upon the life

when you smile
the way you do
reminds how
oh how I've failed you
though you never let me go
alone into the wild
wilderness
