about

WE.ANIMALS. is a concept album about the interconnectedness of all life, including our Earth. It is a call to action, it is a plea, it is a lullaby, it is a love story between my heart and all creatures everywhere. Including you.

"we're animals lest we forget it"

Produced by Daniel Garcia and myself in a small cabin studio in the Santa Cruz mountains.

Track Name: Stars
Stars
They shine behind the thick
Fog it thickens quick
Veil reveal the gems
The live there still hidden

Shine on shine on

Long
Forgotten cast aside
The brightest ones denied
See now come the storms
They beckon us and warn

Shine on shine on

(Never extinct, only just wandering
This can’t be it, only just hiding)

Well I’ve seen it, and I’ve felt it
Even touched it before
I have held it, and I wanted
To protect and swore
There was something, there was greater
Something nudges my core
Clouds part they are always here

See how
The dawning of the dusk
Enslaves the light we must
Scour the skies remains
To find at last our way
Track Name: Tracking
Don’t look back
Your tracks are wearing thin
And now they’re on to you
And they’re following

Oh you, you stupid
Didn’t you think this would catch up with you
Here’s to, to looking ahead
But first lets
Cover up our tracks
And keep on keep on keep

Next time
Our catch line
Toss me some I gotta gotta get mine
Wipe out
Our rescue team
Now all alone our trekking goes

Oh you, you stupid
Didn’t you think this would catch up with you
Here’s to, to looking ahead
But first lets
Cover up our tracks
And keep on keep on keep
Track Name: Confessions
I’m calling, know you hear me
So I’m pleading, please forgive me
Cause there’s something, I’ve been aching
To confess
All of this mess is

All
It’s all of Ours

I’m just one, but I’m trying
And I’m needing, your good help
So please show me, the way back to
To remind them

All of this mess
Is

All
It’s all ours

Too late some say, but I say never
Easy escape, won’t work
This time
What did you expect, who did you think
Who to blame who to frame
When this all this mess is

All
It’s all of ours
Track Name: This Could Be Ha
You woke up again
With the world upon upon upon your shoulders
What more will it take
To shake to shake to shake to shale the weight?
Come see, this whole thing is make belief
Drink up and shut up

You make things harder, harder on yourself
This could be easy, so go easy on yourself
See this could be ha this could be ha
This could be ha this could be ha
This could be harder
So go easy on you

You’ve got enough
Worry worry worry for a million
But who can be fed
If you you’re lost you’re lost it cost a life gone
Stand here
Your head up is what we need
So eat up and shut up

You make things harder, harder on yourself
This could be easy, so go easy on yourself
This could be ha this could be ha
This could be ha this could be ha
This could be harder
So go easy on you

These struggles are the luxuries of ghosts
They’d revive to have a chance at pains we boast
The paradox of our illusions
It buries us self made conclusions
Their prayer is our nightmare
Our dreams are beyond so see on and live on

You make things harder, harder on yourself
This could be easy, so go easy on yourself
See this could be ha this could be ha
This could be ha this could be ha
This could be harder
So go easy on you
Track Name: Nothing To Lose
All these thoughts compiled inside of my head
Get em out of my head
Wouldn’t it be just grand to stand up instead
Getting fed up

Courage takes courage you know
Own own own it
What am I waiting for?

Nothing to lose only some to save
All these voices pounding up inside of me

Years found tears unsure of just quite how
I was screaming help out
I wanted to play hard but held back by doubt
Just fucking shout it

Courage takes courage I know
Own own own it
What are you waiting for?

Nothing to lose only some to save
All these voices pounding up inside of me

All these voices all these voiceless

Courage takes courage and so
Own own own it
What are we waiting for?
Track Name: World On Fire
Breath
So we can keep on breathing
Seen
I’ve seen how you are bleeding
Holy holy mother sold we
Pinned her to the cross
We cold
We owe owe owe

This world is on fire
Here’s a glimpse of goodbye
As we walk this fine wire
Throw your matches to the sidelines
Can we hold hold hold
This softly this lovingly

Deed
We’ve done it without feeling
Lean
Now I’m here for you to reason
Slowly slowly smothered coles we
Steal the last then dig our holes we
Owe owe

This world is on fire
Here’s a glimpse of goodbye
As we walk this fine wire
Throw your matches to the sidelines
Can we hold hold hold
This Softly this lovingly

This is our our only
Last chance out, same old story
What will it take, for heavens sake
Save

This world is on fire
Here’s a glimpse of goodbye
As we walk this fine wire
Throw your matches to the sidelines
Can we hold hold hold
This Softly this lovingly
Track Name: Now
Put it on the to do list
Just put it off to the side
You know one day I’ll get around to it
When the more pressing subside
What can be more enticing?
This life line
(No more fucking around)

Now now no more tomorrow
Now gone gone yesterday

Can’t bring back what was given
Long given way to the ash
Now buried way with the others
But now we all dwindle fast
What could be more important
This life time
(No more fucking around)

Now now no more tomorrow
Now gone gone yesterday

This is an emergency
Take it off the back burner
Tear off your blind fold
Tomorrow’s growing old
Together we, we face the feat
Turn down the heat
To make room for another

Now now now is the only
Now gone gone yesterday
Track Name: Servant
I’m on the prowl
Something has got to ought to give in now
This is it
I live completely indiscreetly to fulfill
I’m at your mercy hail mercy
Here I am now take me quickly I am thirsty

Take me passion I’m your servant
Let me serve you
Won’t you take me take me take I’ll take you
(It’s not that I’m complicated
So much that I am waiting
For the next kill
I’ll take it all I will)

Complications
Arise when I am without inspiration
Just give me a little
I’ll take it in and turn it round to triple
Things will get dirty so dirty
If I’m left waiting here too long for your delivery

Take me passion I’m your servant
Let me serve you
Won’t you take me take me take I’ll take you
(It’s not that I’m complicated
So much that I am waiting
For the next kill
I’ll take it all I will)

How could I turn down the heat
If I was born to dig deep in deep in
Yeah open me wider up
I’m a vehicle for tornado
A container for more soul
(Give me soul)

Take me passion I’m your servant
Let me serve you
Won’t you take me take me take I’ll take you
(It’s not that I’m complicated
So much that I am waiting
For the next kill
I’ll take it all I will)
Track Name: Easy Love
Up against the wall
You stand amongst a world
Immersed in chaos chaos
You golden hearted
Cling to cling we dig through everything
To find a kind of simple savior
You’re our savior
You are

Easy love
You’re easy to love, easy to love
You’re, you’re easy love easy to love
You’re easy to love
In a not all easy world

Rare to find a one so kind
Whose gentle pry the last remaining
Hopeful you’re our hoped for hearted
Far so far the only ones who make some sense
Whose silence silences complex surroundings
You are

Easy love
You’re easy to love, easy to love
You’re, you’re easy love easy to love
You’re easy to love
In a not all easy world

Language needs no words
Without boundaries we’re
We are bound beyond explanation
You’re my anchor me, we are anchored we
By one of the only

Easy love
You’re easy to love, easy to love
You’re, you’re easy love easy to love
You’re easy to love
In a not all easy world
Track Name: Misunderstood
There you go
You’ve got your mind made up up up
I see you’ve figured me out
Haven’t you haven’t you
Well if this is what it looks like
On the outside to you
Well then I wonder what it feels like
On the inside of that view

Drop the mirror and just drop into me

All wrong all wrong all wrong misunderstand
Turn me inside out I’m within not without
And oh this heart is good
All along all along all along misunderstood
Oh cause I see you too, you are scrambling through
And oh you’re heart is good

All I know is I can never quite know no
Who is living on the inside
Inside of you side of you
So much ease to make up, what make up the parts of you
But I would rather tear the walls the down
And would rather you did too

Broken mirrors they’re breaking into me

All wrong all wrong all wrong misunderstand
Turn me inside out I’m within not without
And oh this heart is good
All along all along all along misunderstood
Oh cause I see you too you are scrambling through
And oh you’re heart is good

You don’t even know me, you like to think you do
You claim to know something about me
You wish you could, don’t you wish you could
Lets start here start with you
Before all these assumptions turn round and they just fuckin bite you

All wrong all wrong all wrong misunderstand
Turn me inside out I’m within not without
And oh this heart is good
All along all along all along misunderstood
Oh cause I see you too you are scrambling through
And oh you’re heart is good
Track Name: We Animals
Is there a distinction, between me and you
Where is that space from, how did it come to
What is the difference, how does it taste
To be so far removed from, the original grace

What we cannot hear
Is not ours to not be heard
Listen listen to the
The mother tongue does not lie

Animals we’re animals
Don’t you forget it
Animals we’re animals
Lest we forget it

When did we lose sight of, the beginning was ours
It made us and tied us, to a million chords
Between the hearts of, the beasts of our wild
When did we decide to, divide

What we cannot feel
Is not ours to not be felt
Feel it feel it so the
Mother tongue will not die

Animals we’re animals
Don’t you forget it
Animals we’re animals
Lest we forget it

Their eyes, Blood lines
Take care, Holy
Mother to mother pain to pain
Cannot fathom where all this disconnect came
The voiceless our children the heat of our veins
All bleed the same, remember our name

Animals we’re animals
Don’t you forget it
Animals we’re animals
Lest we forget it
