about

Out and In was primarily recorded at Liv and Anita's family cottage. Capturing the warmth and coziness of the log cabin on Colpoys Bay was an essential element to the production of this album.

Track Name: The Moon and The Stars
We burn the pages, the blood for the woods,
It rips at the lungs of the lives where they stood
As claimers we’re steady we ready the wind to
Come out and in come out and in come out and in come out and in

*
The moon and the stars they know where we are
The mountains and trees they know where we’ll be
The wind and the waves make way for the maze
And the sun in the sky she’s giving us time

I breathe for the air I inhale
I sleep for the sake of this bed of soil frail
Facing the west where the steady sun sets
Come out again, come out again, come out again, come out again

*
*

The moon and the stars they know where we are
(It’s in our hands)
The mountains and trees they know where we’ll be
(Watering sinking sands)
The wind and the waves make way for the maze
(And we’re making plans)
And the sun in the sky she’s giving us time
(And we depend on the man)
Track Name: I've Got You
Dewy eyes and dragonflies
Some say someone’s gonna get the boot
I see who they want, you want it
Some say someone…

Drunken days and younger ways
Some say someone’s got a gun to shoot
I see who they got, you got it
Some say someone’s got another one.

Banks are breaking, waters waking
What’s it take to make it through?
I’ve got you.

Blackened hands and sinking sands
Some say someone’s got a ransom note
I see who I want, you want it
Some say someone,

Sinking ships and liquored lips
Some say someone’s gonna get a boat
I see who they rocked, you rocked it
Some say someone’s got another one

Banks are breaking, waters waking
What’s it take to make it through?
I’ve got you.

Dewy eyes that kiss like knives
Some say someone’s gonna get your throat
I see you, my prey, you’re praying
Some say some say some
Say

Banks are breaking, waters waking
What’s it take to make it through?
I’ve got
Banks are breaking, waters waking
What’s it take to make it through?
I’ve got you.
Track Name: Three Sheets to the Wind
Three sheets to the wind
The ropes of my ship loose and weakened
We’re drowning in waves just for the days of the weekend
Oh, the weekend
Fire and rain burn the remains which impend
Guilt ridden shame should cause a refrain but we can’t we can’t we can’t

Oohhh,
Please pardon the weeds in my garden
Oohhh,
While I call shotgun on the wagon

Three sheets to the wind
It rips at my skin boiling blood from within
The wagon wheels spin steady and stronger than the wind

Oohhh,
Please pardon the weeds in my garden
Oohhh,
While I call shotgun on the wagon

Colour in the lines
This life is so divine
I think I’ve done my time
Burning woods and feeding pine

Burn up these sheets drenched in my sweat and filled with regret
Track Name: Jailbird
sorry we swear in this one.

Hot drinks and cold mornings were meant for each other
Libraries and lattes go hand in hand
And in mine I've got nothing
In my mind there is much
What’s the rush

And the pages I fold and tattoo and abuse
Wear evidence of caffeinated lullabies
I dream of the departure
This spine has had its torture
From this sad excuse for furniture

Oooh, I'm a jailbird

These hours must be days long every day a wasted crime
These crimson fingers wasted on somebody else’s dime
And still I stay at wooden tables
And still I pray I'll come out soon
Out of this womb

But all these robots and machines compete for numbers on a page
Their wires never tire though their oil needs a change
My question that remains is
What's the lesson to be gained
From paying for fancy fucked up names

Oooh, I'm a lifer
Who can't decipher

Between the bars
Bail me out
Track Name: The Burial
Wrung around the rose
Tongue tipped towards the tomb
Bury the burdens I carry and I
Marry the womb
Oh I bury the burdens I carry still I
Stare at the moon

I’m singing along
To a song as meditation
But fretting the chance of it
Gives my chest palpitations

I bury the burdens I carry and I
Married the womb
Oh I bury the burdens I carry still I
Stare at the moon

Laugh to pop the pill
Scream to start the spill
Swallow the change for tomorrow
Follow with chills
Oh I swallow the bullet to follow the moon
And borrow the till

Try not to weep like willows
I’m breathing with laboured bellows, I’m scared
Holding my hands for the first time
Cause I hope it’s not time
So I bury the burdens I carry and I
Marry the womb
Oh I bury the burdens I carry still I
Stare at the moon

Bury the burdens I carry and I
Marry the womb
Oh I bury the burdens I carry still I
Stare at the moon
Track Name: Blue Tattered Shoes
Where’re you headed?
Where’s your head at?
Where are you going?
What are you doing?
What makes you think you can’t spare some time for a change?

Your blue tattered shoes whisper melodies as they’re shuffling
Through the bustling corridors of this piece of moving corrugated steel
Slowly lacking appeal

There’s a rip in the knee of your high-waisted jeans
But your hands are too cold to tie up the seams
Oh you’re high and you’re wasted and you’re permanently pasted
With regretful images from your teenage years

Oh I’m a southbound transforming northbound
And I admit I make unnerving sounds
Oh I’m an eastbound slowly headed westbound
And I regret I don’t want to turn around

And I see people, people going places
Making plans, holding hands as they’re on their way home
But you’re homeless or going home to disjointed lullabies causing your demise

Maybe you’re wiser than I’ll ever be
You’re not putting stock into everyday machinery

Where’re you headed?
Where’s your head at?
Where are you going?
What are you doing?
What makes you think you can spare some time from time to time?
What is time, and who needs time all the time?
And I try to repress all the doubts that I had about
Track Name: Collided
We collided
‘f only I’d seen you comin’
I decided
I can’t hold on anymore

In the stiff, stale, sterilized bed
I finger the colourful evidence
That my forehead reveals
Alas I recall every ill-fated detail
Again and again

Before the sun bowed low to the night
And kissed the wheat waving goodnight sleep tight
I stopped at the crossroad
The 21 vacant or at least I thought so
Until we collided

The night drives through my brain
And it’s driving me insane

We collided
‘f only I’d seen you coming
I decided
I can’t hold on anymore
Without putting my everything
And more, I decided this the night
That we collided

As the drugs drip down through my skin
And the doctors and nurses go out and come in again
My bruised brain can’t decide
Between luck and misfortune, the mortal and divine
That caused our collide

The night drives through my brain
And it’s driving me insane

We collided
‘f only I’d seen you coming
I decided
I can’t hold on anymore
Without putting my everything
And more, I decided this the night
That we collided

Whether or not you forgive me
Whether or not He forgives me
Whether or not the fault lies in my hands
This burden stays

We collided
‘f only I’d seen you coming
I decided
I can’t hold on anymore
Without putting my everything
And more, I decided this in the ambulance in bandages the night
That we collided
Track Name: This is Where I Feel at Home
This is where I feel at home

Hush now darling,
I have not slept, I have not slept
In days,
In days

Hush now honey,
We must not wake the sleeping ones
And we must not sleep in waking hours,
In waking hours, in waking hours

This is where I feel at home

Come now honey,
We’ll row across the lake at dawn
Where the water has thawed,
Where the water has thawed

Come now honey,
The weeping willow’s days are done
And we will sail away across the sun,
Across the sun, across the sun

This is where I feel at home

The birds in the trees
And the sun through the leaves
Will smile as they see us running

And the rivers and stones
Counting days as we’ve grown
Will smile as they see us running home
Oh, home

The birds in the trees
And the sun through the leaves
Will smile as they see us running

And the rivers and stones
Counting days as we’ve grown
Will smile as they see us running home
Oh, home

Oh this is where I feel,
This is where I feel at home
Track Name: Home for the Weekend
I believe in the universe although it hurts and
I’ll regret every single day I spend away
Tell me stories of galaxies and birds and bees and
I’ll remember them fondly

Tell me that you need me while
Wide awake and dreaming
Tell me that your love will bring me fireflies at night
Tell me you won’t leave and
Say it like you mean it
Tell me that your love will bring you home for the weekend

So hold my hand and stay a while and make me smile cause
You and I are perfectly one of a kind
And as we lay here intertwined like ivy vines I
Promise I’ll read you poetry about the sea

Tell me that you need me while
Wide awake and dreaming
Tell me that your love will bring me fireflies at night
Tell me you won’t leave and
Say it like you mean it
Tell me that your love will bring you home for the weekend

And I’ll believe in the universe although it hurts
Track Name: Where the Smoke Blows
What would it mean to you if I spoke all about the lesser ones
And what would you say if I told you they were lesser
I’m afraid of many things but no other's as frightening as you

You’re a loose set of strings; you’re a packet of cigarettes
I’m wrung tight like a string on a kite flying higher than the drag

Let’s get higher
Let’s let desire
Come close
Come closer
Come close
Come closer

I know what I know now what more’s there to know don’t you know
Cause I don’t know
Where
I put my knowledge of people like you, of the people who steal second chances like money is just paper
Paper
Paper rips so easily I rip so easily we slip so easily we make up easily let’s get high easily let’s desire easily but I’m not so easily able to let go
To let go
Of my cigarette pack
As the drag pulls me back
I can’t come
Closer

One thing’s certain curtains don’t hide what’s on the other side
So can’t I see you like I think I do cause I want to
Can’t I see
Can’t I see
Let’s see where the smoke blows
