about

This EP is the climactic musical result of our friendship as we played music together over the course of one year. These songs came to us quickly and naturally. Sometimes in Vilai's backyard, and once when our car was broken down in a church parking lot on the way home from a show.

We are happy to have re-recorded them in a studio environment, with many friends helping out along the way.

Track Name: Highway Or Interstate
Little late night drive,
Seventy-five,
Goodbye Kentucky,
So long, Smokies,
On a run,
A full out sprint,
Carolina, where I am meant,

'Cause all I want,
All I need,
Is for your sweet company,
Give you all I have,
Which is what you see,
Just bring them lovin' arms around me,

So whether highway or interstate,
Rollin' on to my sweet babe,
The end of the road is the start of your embrace,
So wrap your arms around me and let me kiss your face!

A flat tire,
On twenty-eight,
Oh, how I can hardly wait,
Runnin' through these woods,
This muck & mire,
Just to touch those lips made of fire,

'Cause all I want,
All I need,
Is for your sweet company,
Give you all I have,
Which is what you see,
Just bring them lovin' arms around me,

So whether highway or interstate,
Rollin' on to my sweet babe,
The end of the road is the start of your embrace,
So wrap your arms around me and let me kiss your face!
Why don't you wrap your arms around me and let me kiss your face?

A BIG OL' SMOOCH!!
Track Name: Up In The Air
Do you wanna pick up where we left off?
Try to read the shadows on the wall...
The truth comes to us slow and soft,
We must stand still before we can stand tall.

But we can't stand here forever...
We've gotta move to get together.

'Cause its all about the weather vanes;
The wind will tell you where to go,
The end will tell you when you're there,
There's so much strength inside the pain;
These secrets that you'll get to know,
This love that you will have to share.
While you're up in the air.

Are you the birdsong, or the breeze?
Are you the soil, or are you the trees?
Are you the rivers, or the seas?
Or just a wanderer that's coming home to me?

We can't stay home forever...
We've gotta move to get together.

'Cause its all about the weather vanes;
The wind will tell you where to go,
The end will tell you when you're there,
There's so much strength inside the pain;
These secrets that you'll get to know,
This love that you will have to share.
While you're up in the air.

Well, you say that you've been "wreckless,"
Well, I have too.
You've got some shit that needs suppresin'?
Well, I did too.
But I found my way out.
I did it fair and square.
You'll find your way out while you're up in the air.

Its all about the weather vanes;
The wind will tell you where to go,
The end will tell you when you're there,
There's so much strength inside the pain;
These secrets that you'll get to know,
This love that you will have to share.
While you're up in the air.
Track Name: You Are The Mountains
I am goin' on that trail,
Would you meet me beyond the hill?
From the full moon to the rising star,
Darling, you are the mountains in my heart.
Sugar, you are the mountains in my heart,

Bobcats callin', owls too,
I have heard the animal in you,
You are wild, you are free,
Darling, you are the mountains at my feet,
Honey, you are the mountains at my feet,

See your eyes as they shine,
Like the sun through the pines,
Take you in - every breath,
Darling, you are the mountains in my chest,
Darling, you are the mountains in my chest,

Oh, you are the mountains and I am the sky,
You are the mother and I am the child,
We are together here in the dark,
Give me the mountains, and I'll give my heart.

At the end of my path,
Live the good, love the bad,
Even though I depart,
Darling, you are the mountains in my heart,
Darling, you are the mountains in my heart,
Darling, you are the mountains in my heart.
