This track is set in three different locations.

The first being the forest of a Bible camp, surrounded by
tepees and Mother Nature, the second is in a living
room surrounded by ones one thoughts while the TV hums,
and the third is set in the dream state, caught between both
of those worlds.

Anxiety and all that it brings to the table is exhausting.
You feel swallowed by fate, and it is hard to escape
its icy clutches.

Morning Mourning is about fighting to push off the
tendrils of terror and attack the morning with
a renewed sense of belonging. It is about
surviving at whatever cost.


Blue and gold flash across the Pines
Sirens hiss in the stillness
Stars sweep slowly shouting sock puppet sighs
like sanguine sad saps on the Lower east side
And I'm feeling swallowed alive
And I'm feeling swallowed alive
And I'm reeling..
Hit the ceiling
Swallowed alive

Black and white bars swim across the screen
Hill songs hum in resistance
Stepfather storming, staring at studio stillborn sights of your mother, a dull and dependent wine
A dull and dependent knife
Is it fear or flight?
Im feeling swallowed alive

Red ruby rise across the shallow sea
Moon caught spying like a four eyed entity
Echoes blaring, stomping at silver screened
starlets and blonde harlots
Kissing boys has never got me fired yet...
And I'm feeling swallowed alive
Yet I'm taking the steps to survive
