about

Written & recorded during February Album Writing Month 2017, MVv3 is a collection of experiments & collaborations. Fifteen tracks that have no cohesive concept stringing them together beyond the desire to experiment with methodology, sounds & techniques.

Track Name: Hypothermic Hallucinations
The hypothermic hallucination began
The trumpets sounded & the people ran
While psychedelic electric rain
Washed away all lingering pain
Like forgotten shards in sapphire hues
Hung unaware in perfumed tombs

CHORUS
Golden beads hang in the sky
Fixating pleasure in my eyes
On rainbow wings I will fly
But in this cold I have died
I have died…

Fevered frenzied falsified claims
Dripping down pearl necklace chains
Greek fires burning at high noon
My vision black by thoughts consumed

CHORUS

Run through a desert
Crystalized in the moment
Disrupting the presence
But pushing the limits
(Maybe) It’s better this way…
Track Name: Fear
If I could
You know I might
I might do anything
Why not?
Why not do anything?
What's stopping me?
Except maybe all my fears…
My fears

There might have been a time
When I ran free
There might have been some time
When I could dream
But what's holding me back?
All my fears
All my fears…
Just those fears

Why do I fear anything at all?
Why do I fear anything at all?

Why do I fear anything at all?
I shouldn't fear
No no no…
No no no…
Yet I still fear…
Track Name: Candle & Popmythology - The Road Is So Long Lord f. Popmythology
A thousand miles
A hundred nights
I’ve been walking
North star in my sight
Wondering when
I’ll reach the end
Of this road
This long and lonely road

The road is so long, Lord
The road is so long
The night is so dark, Lord
The night is so dark
Please lead me home, Lord
One way or the other
Please lead me home

I tell myself
That I’ll soon be free
In the Promised Land
That you promised to me
But I’m so tired, Lord
That I only want
To come home to you
Y-e-e-e-s, to you

The road is so long, Lord
The road is so long
The ground is so cold, Lord
The ground is so cold
Please lead me home, Lord
One way or the other
Please lead me home

Last night I dreamt
Of a ladder so high
Ol’ Jacob’s Ladder
Leading up to the sky
I tried to climb it
You pulled it away
My heart was broken, Lord
Yes, so broken

The road is so long, Lord
The road is so long
My feet are so tired, Lord
My feet are so tired
Please lead me home, Lord
One way or the other
Please lead me home

If I lied down now
In this cold deep river
Would you let me in
into heaven forever
Or would you make my soul
Wander forever
On this road
This long and lonely road

The road is so long, Lord
The road is so long
When will I be free, Lord
When will I be free
Please lead me home, Lord
One way or the other
Please lead me home

A thousand miles
A hundred nights
I’ve been walking
North star in my sight
Wondering when
I’ll reach the end
Of this road
This long and lonely road
