┼Coach Jeff┼ is yet another project i wrote in 2 nights but took forever to release cause initially i asked caleb to do all the vocals in addition to his spoken word & when we finally had time to record, things didn't really pan out how we expected. so hopefully this is the only release where all of the singing is my own. worst case scenario, i'll take my allergy pills next time so i can breathe through my nose.
The legend, Colton of Facepalm Death fame, on the cover.
Caleb Hall: spoken word on A Sanctuary For Us & A Declaration Against The Moving Of Time, a title i took from one of the lines he didn't use.
i cannot stress enough how much this project is headphone only lol sorry
i deserve every bit of what i got
there's no debating why
Track Name: A Sanctuary For Us & A Declaration Against The Moving Of Time
The night is long. It is neither a friend or an enemy. An enemy is out to do you harm, but the night invites rest, peace, and even stability. A movement of an eternal cycle. How can peace and quiet be my enemy when that is all these aching bones want?
Why can’t I sleep as I did as a child? With no desire for blankets, beds, or a nightly ritual besides being “tucked in”. Once that was done, sleep held me tight. Maybe that’s what’s missing: safety. Safety that when I wake up someone will be glad to see me. Safety that I mean something to someone. Safety that I’ll be missed if I don’t wake up. That safety is gone now, and all I have at night is this bed.
And now, I’m stuck in this bed…alone, again. Every few minutes my phone tries to tell me otherwise, but words on a screen will never mean anything to me. I don’t hate you.
For now, it will be my sarcophagus, as I close my eyes, but I know I won’t fall asleep.
Track Name: There Are Still Markets In The Spring
God forbid you hurt any longer than what it's worth.
I did not feel the burden of loss but instead spent many months wondering why I couldn't.
