Embedded 02:11
I've tried all that I can to avoid seeing you, But everywhere that I walk you surround my head, my shoes, You are Embedded in the ground. Like fungi you connect the roots of all the trees. I'm on my knees! Get out of my head! Give me some quiet so that I can sleep, so I can start feeling deep, You keep me shallow until I am mostly hollow. You've got me for good. I love you - you're everyone's mother.
If You Think 03:45
If you think That you feel So alone in this life Without someone to know,
Ask me where I'm from, I'll say that I forgot, and with peace of mind, I'll let all my dreams rot. When I let you know which plants I like to grow, Maybe you will see Where my brain likes to go.


This album would not have happened without the balance of struggle and support I experienced in the year leading up to this release. First, thank you to Brendan, Paul, and Mike for immediately welcoming me into their lives and so immensely supporting my art. I cannot thank my parents enough for their encouragement and support across all parts of life. Another huge thank you goes out to Shawn, Liam, Keegan, and Kellen of The Astral Pines for always reminding me to listen. Lastly, I thank Her.
