about

The sun's energy diverges and creates both playlist and incentive to listen. What a warm affair. We begin together, diverge and come back through music. The prodigal suns return.

about

SunSon Portland, Oregon

We're just little suns.

We can warm and we can burn.
I think that the sun's nature is compassion- a slow warmth that arises directionless and broad.

Solar flares can't ever scratch the surface of the celestial ceiling.

Simmer down and groove with me.

Track Name: I'm seein'
Lightning cones flash into my dome
I'm seein'

Outro:

Thoughts are lively
they're driven by energy.
if you push a thought down
it absorbs that energy and
comes back twice as strong.

But if you really just let go
and face who you are
and just put it out there
and get surprised by yourself
- those thoughts aren't so powerful.

That's my therapy
Track Name: human being
Livin' seems easy
when you're walking down these streets.
Faces appearin'
and disappear before we meet.
Metros and metals
,urban concrete at your feet.
Your soul's at rest here-
smothered in this
grayish sheet.

[ba da ba ba ba ba da ba...]

But I wanna live, I wanna live.
Don't wanna waste away in this
sky made of scrapers, sk-sk-skyscrapers
and the pavement's
desperate faces.

I don't wanna give up my life
for fortune...
fortunately I've come to see

that I'm a human being
not just a human doer,
...

I'm searchin' for a nature
in cities like glaciers.
They're frozen in time,
but nobody can save us
but us.
Said nobody can save us
but us.

But we have to become human beings.
And not remain human doers.
Will we become human beings?
And I wish I had known this sooner.

That I am a human being,
not just a human doer.
That I am a human being
and I wish I had known this sooner.
Track Name: information stupid highway
Next stop:
devolution.

Information stupid highway (can't get a break)
Information stupid highway (is that my phone ringin'?)
Information stupid highway (yeah, so I read this article on Vox)
Information stupid highway (I don't know man- sound's like spin)
Information stupid highway (wait, hold up, when does it end?)
(never?)
Shit.

My relationship with the internet is complicated.
Yeah...
My relationship with the internet is complicated.
I use the browser for hours and hours.
Why windows? When you got a screen!

But, you know what I mean...
it's got it's costs.
I've gotten lost behind the screens.
Behind the screens.

Information stupid highway (can't get a break)
Information stupid highway (is that my phone ringin'?)
Information stupid highway (yeah, so I read this article on Vox)
Information stupid highway (I don't know man- sound's like spin)
Information stupid highway (wait, wait)

if this is really a problem, like, I'm writing a song about it...
can't I just turn my phone off?

["hey, Stanley, did you get that invite that I sent you on Facebook?"
"hey, Stanley, you didn't respond to my text within, like, 20 minutes.

Like, what's up? are you ignoring me?"
"Dude, there's no such thing as being bad at texts.

It's just, you don't want to respond.
Clearly I just don't matter to you."]

Well fuck-
I guess I'll go outside
Track Name: It's all good
Woke up this morning,
felt the sun's rays.
Everything's enlightened
in my gaze.

It's all good (x4)

When will this feeling go,
go away.
A bit uncomfortable-
let's just say..

it's all good (x4)

It's not easy being satisfied.
Oh! Happiness in present time...

it's all good (x4)

Feeling anesthetized is a crime.
You've got your problems?
Well, get in line.

It's all good (x4)
Track Name: warm darkness (cold night)
Sound, space and light embracing night:

"warm darkness (cold night)
warm darkness (cold night)
warm darkness (callin' I)
warm darkness (callin' I)
warm darkness (cold night)
warm darkness (callin' I)
warm darkness (cold night)
warm darkness (callin' I)."
Track Name: Firebomb
Sleep, sleep is nothing, I'm just dreamin'.
Cosmic shores I'm never leavin'.
Girl, I'd be the owl to your eyes.

I'm achievin' seven points until the deep end.
Rigid rocks, I'd never leap in.
But if it works, I'm steppin' off.
But if it works, I'm steppin' off.
You know, you know, I'm steppin' off.

Don't stop, chasin' me with your gun cocked
leaving me dumb and jaw locked-
slidin' right by you.
I'm slidin' right by you.

'bout to set it off, set it off right now.
'bout to set it off, set it off right now.
'bout to set it off right now
cuz I'm a Firebomb.

This beat keeps taking me over.
This beat keeps taking, taking,
but it won't give.
But I left you when my heart went out
out of time.
And I left you when my heart went out
out of time.
But you know that

Said, baby, I'll always think of you
No, baby, I'll always think of you
No, baby, I'll always think of you, think of you
yeah, you know you got me sprung like that
making me know not what to do
but what it really feels when i'm feelin' you, girl.
When I'm feelin' you girl
