  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    The album is meant to flow as a story. The front cover features me and my guitar stepping into an open book, required to make a choice in order to move on. Once opened, I encounter a green landscape with houses I am unfamiliar with. The actual CD showcases fish, which I relate to releasing things, such as things I couldn't say. The CD booklet was meant to read like a poetry book. For each song I illustrated/painted something that related to the song somehow. There are no mentions in the CD booklet that it is for a CD to add to the book feel. The back of the CD case features blue circles to represent honesty.

    Each case has been hand stamped, painted, and drawn on by myself. I scanned my drawings for houses and cut them out and colored them all with colored pencil. I used quite a bit of glue sticks too. Every button/pin is hand painted/inked and features a wolf. I thought it could be something that helps make you feel like you can take on anything when you have self doubt.

    50 were made.

    Each order will contain a physical Open Book burned audio CD, CD case, CD booklet, and a wolf pin/button.

lyrics

somewhere along the line we were an ocean
our words could never sail away
somewhere between the lines we were just rivers
slow and steady and ready to divide

the lie is easy to expand on
it’s fine, you don’t have to say why
i’ll try to make it up when you’re not busy
ain’t that the truth you had no time for me at all

we hid our flaws
we never said why
i hid my flaws
i never knew why

we wore that red, red flag
we held it high and packed our history in a bag
where there were plenty things to see
guessing who and what we’d be
a quiet ending cast us far past the sea

somewhere along the line we were an ocean
our words could never sail away
somewhere between the line we were just rivers
slow and steady and ready to divide

the truth isn’t easy to expand on
when you can’t say why
you don’t have to say that you were busy
ain’t that a lie, we tried so hard to make it small.
