original version to appear on self-titled 5th LP in 2015.
recorded in minneapolis MN and grand rapids MI, december 2014.


stern and strewn, own mistakes pride.
washed and moved, collected comforts lie.
freestanding now, with a loss for words.
little left to lose, new lean to abuse.
time to make up, with found pieces to redeem.
time to wake up, pull over the old bereave.
there's nothing quite like a scar to truth.
and this is nothing quite like a bruise.
mean for sport, and sporting the means.
the sentiment express, rail-tied and neat.
idling, waiting...
excused from prior fears.
excuse the misnomers of here.


released 20 December 2014
