about

PHOTOVOLTAIC is an album that has only seen the light of day with the most gratuitous amount of thanks to our Kickstarter backers.

The music of PHOTOVOLTAIC has been in the works since the early days of 2015 when the first ideas for "Inhale / Exhale" were cumulatively brought together.

Track Name: Seize the Day
Forget that, step back, first one in to react last
When turns are counter-clockwise, the treacherous are back to back
Get - get down with grip slaps, fissures with their gat straps
We think therefore we act last, we think therefore we fall fast
Devolved like pack rats, they scream out for their cash stacks
Electricians with their meth labs, while falling in denial

Oh you just said it - Won’t give us credit - Can’t just forget it
Oooh-Oooh-Ooh
Oh you’ve upset it -Won’t you regret it - Can’t make the edit
There’s nothing left but …

It’s do or die, the silver linings right
Time to seize the day

It all comes down to what’s asked last, criminals with gas masks
Because they asked with a back fist, unconscious as they laughed last
Uncertain attack -In church they act all abstract
They worked until they relapsed, Invading in their lies and all

Oh you just said it - Won’t give us credit - Can’t just forget it
Oooh-Oooh-Ooh
Oh you’ve upset it - Won’t you regret it - Can’t make an edit
Nothing left but …

It’s do or die, the silver lining’s right
Time to seize the day
Oh oh oh-oh, Oh oh oh-oh, Oh oh oh-oh
Time to seize the day

Trying our best to survive
Trying our best to survive this criminal attack
Survive this- Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah!

It’s do or die, the silver lining’s right
Time to seize the day
Oh oh oh-oh, Oh oh oh-oh, Oh oh oh-oh
Time to seize the day
Track Name: Analog in Digital
We’re tangled up in video, can’t find the line to see the show
Get in to the gig, we didn’t come alone
Unsigned to what we can’t control, they’ve bottomed out by selling gold
Get in to the gig until they’re saying just go
Just go …
We’re gonna turn it up ‘til you can feel it

Analog - Digital
There’s nothing left of us to give you the control
Woah-oh-oh-Woah-oh-oh
Woah-oh-oh Woah-oh-oh

We’re tangled up in video, can’t rhyme the rhyme to save our soul
Get in to the gig, and still we lost the show
Designed for what we cannot know, we’re breaking through but rising slow
Get in to the gig until they’re saying just go

Analog - Digital
There’s nothing left of us to give you the control
Woah-oh-oh-Woah-oh-oh - Analog
Woah-oh-oh Woah-oh-oh - Digital

Analog - Digital
There’s nothing left of us to give you the control
Woah-oh-oh-Woah-oh-oh - Analog
Woah-oh-oh Woah-oh-oh - Digital
Track Name: Dropping Names
Oh, where were you when I tried to call?
I ended up taking the fall
It’s who you are and not who you know
staying jaded, the tangle revolves

In the mean-mean time that you thought I’d forget
And just before we look inside we’re saying that’s what you get
With the green-green light that you pushed to reset
And just before we look inside I’m gonna roll it

In the end we entertain ourselves
As we burn-burn-burn the night-night-night away
Dropping names like we’re making them up
We’re taking them up and breaking them up, yeah

Oh, did you know the cops have been called?
They pat you down – hands to the wall
Just shut your mouth, the problem is solved
Staying jaded, the tangle revolves

In the mean-mean time that you thought I’d forget
And just before we look inside we’re saying that’s what you get
With the green-green light that you pushed to reset
And just before we look inside I’m gonna roll it

In the end we entertain ourselves
As we burn-burn-burn the night-night-night away
Dropping names like we’re making them up
We’re taking them up and breaking them up, yeah

(Voicemail - listen closely and you'll figure it out)

In the end we entertain ourselves
As we burn-burn-burn the night-night-night away
Dropping names like we’re making them up
We’re taking them up and breaking them up, yeah
Track Name: Battery Acid
I’ll sit and I’ll stay and I’ll shut my mouth and behave
And I don’t know why I even try, everything is so volatile
I’ll stay
I don’t know why I try; I don’t know I’ve been denied
Nothing ever satisfies; I’m not good enough for you

I touch and corrode, I spark and explode
Cannot make this happen – battery acid
I touch and corrode, I spark and explode
Cannot make this happen – battery acid
Touch and corrode, I spark and explode
I just wanted something to have and to hold
I touch and corrode, I spark and explode
Cannot make this happen – battery acid

I’ll sit and I’ll stay and I’ll shut my mouth and behave
And I don’t know why I even try, everything is so volatile
I’ll stay
I don’t know why I try; I don’t know I’ve been denied
Nothing ever satisfies; I’m not good enough for you

I touch and corrode, I spark and explode
Cannot make this happen – battery acid
I touch and corrode, I spark and explode
Cannot make this happen – battery acid
Touch and corrode, I spark and explode
I just wanted something to have and to hold
I touch and corrode, I spark and explode
Cannot make this happen – battery acid
Track Name: Inhale / Exhale
I got this pressure in my chest
Though it shows it will never relent
And I’m crushed like a ghost in the grip of my death
Like a bird underwater trying to gather my breath

How can I speak when it chokes me up?
How can I feel so alive, yet so stressed out?

Better instead not to figure it out
Losing my head never having a doubt
Da-da-da-dah-dah-da-da-da-da-dah-da-da
Inhale in – Exhale out

I got the strokes of a masterpiece
With the pressure of a tower pressing down on me
And I’m holding on for my sanity
Change is thick in the air and I’m too scared to breathe

How can I speak when it chokes me up?
How can I feel so alive, yet so stressed out?

Better instead not to figure it out
Losing my head never having a doubt
Da-da-da-dah-dah-da-da-da-da-dah-da-da
Inhale in – Exhale out
Oh whoa, whoa
Inhale in – Exhale out

Better instead not to figure it out
Losing my head never having a doubt
Da-da-da-dah-dah-da-da-da-da-dah-da-da
Inhale in – Exhale out

Inhale in – Exhale out …
Track Name: My Demons
Lost, but it feels a lot like home here
And I’ve tried to come back
But I know it would kill you too
When my thoughts stop defending me from hell

Breathe… Breathe…Breathe….

But all my demons have guns, they’ve overcome
They’ve overcome, and my defenses aren’t enough
My demons have guns, they’ve overcome
They’ve overcome

Breathe, and just keep staring out the window
I don’t want to surrender
I try to bring myself to feel the feelings I don’t even understand
Just let them in, would it really be so bad?
I’m just so tired of fighting all (my demons…)

But all my demons have guns, they’ve overcome
They’ve overcome, and my defenses aren’t enough
My demons have guns, they’ve overcome
They’ve overcome
Track Name: High
Downtown baby where you looking to go
Got the money, whisper honey got the Cobain soul
Uptown baby has that rock and roll
Got the heart shaped box singing Marigold

Reach out, baby, gonna feel it tonight
We don't exist just to live, cause we barely survive
Reach out, baby, for the fire inside
We don't exist just to live, at the edge of the world tonight

And we're all just feeling low, and we got nowhere to go
And the glow will get you high, maybe just to stay alive
And we’re just feeling low, and we got nowhere to go
In the hopes of getting by, yeah, we’re all just getting high

Reaching up for the feeling
Like our cage is closed, and birds are singing outside
Cause we're all just getting high
Breaking out, through the ceiling
Gonna take this hope and burn the feeling inside
Cause we’re all just getting high, and we’re all just getting ...

High up while the city sleeps
It seems for a little moment that we found
real peace
But it's getting to me - like a negative creep
And what Polly wants- is what Polly needs

Reach out, baby, gonna feel it tonight
We don't exist just to live, cause we barely survive
Reach out, baby, for the fire inside
We don't exist just to live, at the edge of the world tonight

And we're all just feeling low, and we got nowhere to go
And the glow will get you high, maybe just to stay alive
And we’re just feeling low, and we got nowhere to go
In the hopes of getting by, yeah, we’re all just getting high

Reaching up for the feeling
Like our cage is closed, and birds are singing outside
Cause we're all just getting high
Breaking out, through the ceiling
Gonna take this hope and burn the feeling inside

Cause we’re all just getting high, and we’re all just getting ..
