Taking sides, taking sides We're not talking, we just duck and hide Keep it in, keep in stride Your neighbor's on the other line Hide your keys, hide your soul Your uncle's on the other shore Taking strides, taking strides We're talking, but it's mostly lies Keep it in, keep in stride Your neighbor's on the other line Hide your keys, hide your soul Your uncle's on the other shore Keep in time, keep in tune You're hiding in another room Following, following But you just can't get through to them

Set up, on a sunny day There's nothing going in our brains Plug in the microwave Tune in, tune in and tune out I've got something on my mind I've got nothing on my mind It's going fine It's going alright

Dormouse 03:35
This one has just got to live on Found a place and that's where you belong Around you, the winds have shifted But in here you can hold on till it's lifted Approaching quickly at the borders On your island close your eyes and ignore them You know you've done nothing wrong This one has just got to live on Around you, the winds have shifted But in here you can hold on till it's lifted Approaching quickly at the borders On your island close your eyes and ignore them

It grows inside You can't hide Cross the lines Made in old times You will survive You will survive It changes shape Into a face You cross the lines Made in old times You will survive You will survive Now it's here You disappear Now new times Have drawn new lines You will survive You will survive

Bored 02:34
Matchstick on the floor Pick up, write the score Telephones won't work Anymore Tell me what I'm for I won't ask for more Letters on a board Rearrange the word My wants are deferred Desire to subvert I am really bored Walking out that door

Another day in alone Too much time on your phone Another big one today Are your friends all okay? Don't let go Don't be scared Don't be sad Call your mom Call your dad Leave the house Take a hike Read a book Ride a bike Get a job Go to school Go to work Learn the rules Get in shape Work it out Clear your mind Kill some doubt Plan a trip Swim some laps Plan your life Wear a hat Write a letter Check the mail Pay a bill Eat some kale Don't despair Don't despair Another day in alone Too much time on your phone There's a big one everyday Tell your friends you're okay Don't let go Don't be mad Don't be stressed Close your eyes Count to ten Come unglued Write a song Shout it out Just be wrong Buy a coffee Lay in the grass Get hyper Get relaxed Quit your job Buy a condo Quit your band Buy a condo Move to the coast Sell your shit Drink a smoothie Buy some more shit Don't despair Don't despair

Ought 03:05
We took a vote For peace again We said no "Then who'd take the blame" Thought for thought Naught for naught There's no comparison Between will and ought Consensus is in There was a choice We wouldn't change For those who don't have a voice

about

"Last Year" is a compilation of tracks pulled from a series of twelve EPs written and recorded during each month of 2016. Recording these EPs started as a personal challenge but quickly became a carthartic form of journalling for a year spent moving abroad, from Portland, OR to Amsterdam, NL, and witnessing the chaos and helplessness felt during (and after) the 2016 US elections from afar.

This collection of songs represents some of the best of the series, edited and remixed into a cohesive whole.

Thanks for listening.

<3,
Mark
