about

the Lambta Da's regina, Saskatchewan

The music's expression is paradoxically less solar and extraverted than the character of the seasons would lead us to believe. More than strength or richness there is an intensity, a sensation replete with freshness and firmness, which is remarkable. This deep and confident presence that persists over time becomes the memory of the music, possibly for always. ... more

Track Name: CANNON TOMB
i'm gonna write a book in the boiler room
i'm gonna slow dance with the mop & broom
i'm gonna overwhealm myself
i'm gonna disregard my health
...
in my cannon tomb
...
i'm gonna write a song someday
i'm gonna write of how you help me stay
...
Track Name: COFFEE GROUNDS BRAIN
it's been awhile since we talked
i think about that lots
and suddenly it hits me
all the things that i have lost
why has it been so long
when people fall from the air
i wonder if they care
i wonder if they wonder
how the hell did i get here
before they hit the ground
...
i'd feel so much better
if i'd return to the center
of your eyes
...
i'm in a melancholy state
of mind i contemplate1
the questions that are lingering
as i percolate
as silly as that sounds
my brain is full of grounds
...
st. joseph burried inches deep
trying to sell my secrets neat and cheap
...
Track Name: DYNAMO
this is a bit concerning
on edge with pins and needles out
broken, proding and hurting
on the ledge pushings not allowed
...
hold me tight then let me go
nothing lasts forever you know
...
this is a fucking headache
on knees i beg it all to stop
my lifes a shitty heartache
the peaks of it are drifting off
...
hold me tight then let me go
nothing lasts forever you know

Track Name: GROUNDHOG OPTICS
groundhog discussion
i teared up so proud i love him
then kitchen table blackjack
highrollers in practice
sipping on cider and coffee
heavy lovely talking
exactly what i wanted
to share and be responded
then tax education
with a glazed eyed sensation
kitchen table card games
old lamp black and heartache
lighthearted letters
with numbers suits and the weather
avoiding certain topics
how do you like your brand new optics.
Track Name: I COULD SLEEP FOR ANOTHER NIGHT
stargazing in the heart of the darkest night
picking things apart without a side
discovering it all with whispered facts
like the cafe au late on the small of your back
...
i could sleep for another night
i could sleep for another night
and another night with you by my side
...
the velvet piano plays quite slowed down
covered in layered waves of recorded sound
...
so late to whats happening
so babe are we staying in
...
Track Name: MAYBE I'M, & YOU'RE...
when did this game begin has it been all along
can i right my wrongs
will all this give and take maybe break our hearts
the end is where it starts
the end is where it starts
...
maybe i'm wrong and you're right
...
this is a back and forth a push and pull of our thoughts
i respect the ones you've got
honest don't contemplate quickly make your case
no one likes to chase
answers asked to wait
sitting face to face
...
i must go to sleep
you keep me up too late
...
Track Name: MY DARLING PANTHERS
his and hers covered in cat furs
and the room is quiet
hers and his and the cats hiss
aside from that and the fan it's silent
fabric and lumber can she hear thunder
did she see the lightning crack
lumber and fabric the rains now a soundtrack
is it quiet and silent where she's at
...
will i sleep till the morning comes
...
i am surrounded by panthers
relentless stoppers
and they turn into dancers
early hour monsters
i hear cries begging of thirst
looking out for dad
more likely just a bad dream
not letting go of my hand
...
what kind of dreams am i gonna let in
to the holes of my skin
beaten flat and burried beneath
and broken within
why do i hear, like animals, these violins
gnawing on something under my bed
over and over again
...
Track Name: MY LOVE IS A LOST & FOUND
wake me up calm me down
it's a shame that you must go
after nine alarms the curtains drawn
but we're moving awfully slow
the morning stretch the aah's and ooh's
the cats have scattered bout
half awake and a kiss goodbye
half asleep i'm freaking out
couldn't i see this coming
or would come eventually
...
it's tough to say or to admit
but i'm veering into need
couldn't i see this coming
or would come eventually
...
my love is a lost and found
going round and round and round
...
it's tough to say or to admit
but i'm veering into need
all encompassing it's embarrassing
i'm capable perfectly
of a goodnights sleep and restful mind
but i'm veering into need
so wake me up and calm me down
it's a shame that you must leave
couldn't i see this coming
or would come eventually
...
Track Name: NINTH YEAR MISSING
ninth year missing after eight in a row
with fingers itching twitching broken
and cracking toes
and bones a plenty with a few to pick
if i needle myself excuse my french
but i'll feel like a prick
ninth year missing after eight back to back
if my goal was to be a deadbeat
hell i'd be right on track
if i had known that i'd feel quite like this
well hell i'd have picked up the slack
after eight back to back...
Track Name: RAMIFICATIONS
buy a bottle of pills, a photo prescription
then a thank you drink when they are done
i keep saying yes till i overload
until i fill my lungs and my life explodes
...
there will be, ramifications
...
try and bottle the hurt for a rainy day
watch it explode and hope someone will pay
expectations are tough my willingness is high
i keep saying yes yes yes everytime
...
Track Name: THE FIRE ESCAPE
i sold cathedral to rent provista
little brother asked for his sister
i need an architect to fix this disaster
maybe a builder is what i'm after
...
smoke break on the fire escape
...
old scarth street regulars
all heartbeats and registers
in then out, loves a doubt
...
smoke break on the fire escape
smoke break on the fire escape
cough up a lung a love a hate
smoke break on the fire escape
...
i went from calgary, to malbec
twenty to thirty, in a quick sec
...
Track Name: WRAPPED IN BORDEAUX
didnt you doze asleep
with elbows on the table neatly
wrapped in bordeaux
noon strikes and you blink an eye
hope shines through dust sunlight
where drinks on the table last night flowed
...
are you sad and lonely
or are you just getting wrecked
...
last night why did you sing
every song in minor key
with reckless abandonment
has melancholy hit you are you feeling it
weighing you down likely bent
...
didnt you doze asleep
with elbows on the table neatly
wrapped in bordeaux
...
