about

Dear fellow music lovers,

We're pleased to release our first full-length album, The Sun As It Comes, in multiple physical and digital formats for your musical consumption. This album was a true labor of love for us, completely independently recorded and produced. By purchasing it today, you help us to continue to do what we love to do. And while we greatly appreciate your financial support, our ultimate goal is to get our music in as many ears as possible. So please spread the word and share these songs with everyone you know. Thanks for keeping independent music alive!

Graciously,
The Lonely Wild

Track Name: The Sun As It Comes
Tie a little string
to the door.
Tie the other end
to your tooth, child.
It won't hurt,
but for the moment
Of closing.
You must make
room for all that
is growing.

Hold each other's arms
Through the night.
Beat each other's hearts
Before the fire dies.
You can't
ignore the sound of
One drum
When it's played
By hands of
Millions.

And I
Sit on the balcony
And watch
The sun, as it comes.
Track Name: Banks and Ballrooms
So you can't believe the night when
She says you're on fire
In an empty street.
Even the moon says she's a star
When she's staring white
With the sunlight.
And you and I are of the same dust,
And we both watch
the great parade.
But you grew up and learned the tune
Of the marching band,
you fell in line.

Then you built each other churches
So you could draw
some line of truth.
In the banks and in the ballrooms
What you say ain't what you do.
And it's the strangest thing—
The few, the small,
the judge and jury.
The richest men carry the country
Straight to it's grave.

Now we've been wronged
And we've been had
Another day, here
in the promised land.
You've done no wrong.
You should be mad.
This ain't the good life
That you worked to have.

This ain't the good life
And I will take anything
That the morning brings.
Track Name: Everything You Need
When night falls, I'll lay by your side.
And when the newness wears thin and runs dry

I will beat your heart.
I will beat your heart.
If you will be mine.

And when the crooks come and say, "Join our ranks.
If you ain't a pirate, then your ship is sank."

Will you beat my heart?
Will you beat my heart,
before I fall astray?

And when the ground falls from beneath our feet.
And when the long days bring no relief.

I will beat your heart.
I will beat your heart,
If you will beat mine.
I will beat your heart.
I will beat your heart.
I will be everything you need.
Track Name: Keep Us Whole
Michael, Michael
Who you think you are, now?
Banging on the drum
Of the dying dusk?
You played your part.
Dogs rained down.
Lit the spark.

Now there's nothing left
For you to stand on.
The city streets are shaking
In the sober sun.

So it goes,
The bashing blues
Keep us whole.

Keep us whole.

Storm clouds crack.
Fire's bound to break.
Hear that sound?
The wild's wide awake.
Track Name: Closer Than The Needle
I knew I'd see your face again.
I know you have the best intentions.
So I leave my heart out on the door.
You knock it down just like you did before.

You don't live, you just pretend.
You only come back when you're short of friends.
You believe every single thing you say.
But in the morning it won't sound the same.

Hold me closer than the needle.
Fill the emptiness I feel.
Hold me closer, I am real.
I'll fill the emptiness you feel.
We feel.

Now, you've been locked up,
You've been chained.
Junk took your mother,
still, you won't be swayed.
He's got his hands around your throat.
You beg him, baby, please don't let me go.

Hold me closer than the needle.
Fill the emptiness I feel.
Hold me closer, I am real.
I'll fill the emptiness you feel.
We feel.
Track Name: Who's Calling
Who's calling?
Who's calling me now?
Track Name: Come Back Down
Come back down
To where the tall grass greener grows
And walk along your footprints.
Leave your lust where the long winds always blow,
And remember how to forgive.

Stay with me.
I will beat your heart.
Till you learn how to love once more.

But you must come now,
'cause you never know what you've got to lose.
But you must come now,
'cause you always knew that you'd have to choose.
But you must come now.
It's the only time that I'm asking you.
You must come with me now.

Come back down
To where the cowboys used to roam.
No, we weren't afraid to die here.
Leave your lust where the vultures turn to stone.
And feel the pulse in the air.

Stay with me.
I will beat your heart.
Till you learn how to love once more.

But you must come now,
'cause you never know what you've got to lose.
But you must come now,
'cause you always knew that you'd have to choose.
But you must come now.
It's the only time that I'm asking you.
You must come with me now.
Track Name: Over Edgeware
When the boys from the
Lotus Fair
Saw the gringos coming...
And who was I to be
Living there?
Didn't even own a problem at all.
Walk tall. Don't look
In the eyes.
I disappear in the daylight.
At night I'm lit like a
Neon sign.
Stay in, watch the traffic below.

Over Edgeware, over the freeway
Is where those boys collide
Choose your life or you choose a side
They say, "It makes no difference
We all are gonna die."

...look out for me and mine.

Down in line on
Logan St.
The fire was without warning.
And the young boy out
at the lemon tree
Could he have seen it coming at all?
Walk tall, don't look
in the eyes.
But he was shot
In broad daylight.
Don't need words when
We've got our knives.
Just carve a little warning sign.

Over Edgeware, over the freeway
Is where those boys collide
Choose your life or you choose a side
They say, "It makes no difference
We all are gonna die."
Track Name: Flames to Fight
All you
Bright ideas
Sitting pretty
In the snow,
I wash you
Clean of conscience
How old bible
Stories grow
Out of nothing,
Into nothing
Into your fears,
Out of nothing
Into nothing
All your ideals.

And all you
Best intentions
Sleeping soundly
At the wheel
It's not what
You were born for
But how you die that
Makes you real.
If you are nothing
Out of nothing
A failing dream.
If you are nothing
Out of nothing
Why lose some sleep?

All you
Sleeping children
Growing unseen
In the night
We're sowing
Your forgiveness
In the sheets we
Tuck so tight.
We give you nothing
You get nothing
But guiding light.
You get nothing
We leave you nothing
But flames to fight.
Track Name: Bankrupt
Suddenly we are no
Longer the builders.
Suddenly there are no
More trips to the moon.
It's not what all the
Babies booming
Thought they'd see when
They grew up and grew

Backwards.
Lost their
Flowers.

They blew smoke and
Got really high.
They forgot the fire
Was waiting behind.

Or Goldman couldn't care less.

I was sleeping with you
With all the lights
Burning.
Burning

Faster
Through
Disaster.

We saw smoke and
Got pretty high.
A good day for
White collar crime.
If we don't know
We'll never ask, "why?"
So go buy what the
Money you don't have
Can buy...

Pass on the problem.
When it's time...
We'll say we misjudged this.
When it's time...
We'll say...
Track Name: Buried in the Murder
I'm fed with livestock
Rain, grasses and grain
That I bought in a city
From another city that I
Cannot name.

And I'll meet you for dinner
And we'll speak the same
What choice have we got?
We kiss women who love us
And we love the same.

And these men that we're making,
These men we've become,
Who speak with conviction
But can't find the answers
When the day is done,

Will we side with the same truth
When we've mined long enough?
Will we stand up and see eye to eye
Once the wild has torn
straight through our guts?

We all
We all
Dissolve
In all

When I talk like a liar,
When I've sold all my dreams,
When I stand tall, like a monument
That's when you know that I'll never wash clean.

Some wait for the whisper.
Some wait for God.
But it's never gonna be
how you want it to be
So, boy, just play along.

'cause there's a truth
Buried in the murder—
A man I want to know.
So I can still look at myself
In the the mirror
And say, "Hell, you know
Damn well the right way to go."
Track Name: Over the Hill
This one hope
May leave my hands empty
May make my head swim
And twist my heart into a knot.

This long rope
Has got me swinging heavy
Has got my neck stretched out
Like a swan without a song.

This bad joke
Still has got me laughing
Still has got me bawling
Like a man chasing his hat.

With just one line
I could bring us closer
Closer than old friends
Or than your mama and your dad.

But it's always over the hill
Over the hill
There's another hill
To try and try to break my will.

This tired voice
May outlive my body
May ride on the wind
That's gonna blow me into dust.

But I've
made a few friends here
And I ain't rushing off
to hear what history's gotta say.
