I Wish You Could Have Stayed was written for someone I no longer speak to. I wanted so desperately to be a part of that person's life. I have to accept that not everything works out, even when it seems like everything should. Remember to listen - truly listen to what people are saying. Remember that your worth is, in the end, defined by you alone.
Remember that things will change. For better or worse, this is all we have.
Take your hate and make something. Even if it's shit, it's better than nothing.
Keep it honest. Keep it heavy.

All three of these songs were recorded in March and April of 2016.


released April 28, 2016

Dedicated to:

Savanna Jones.

I hope that wherever you go, you find what you're looking for.

Portland, Seaside, Washougal.

Also Nate Ostermiller, Chelsea Danger, Bernie Sanders, Jabders Jr., Domino's Pizza, JANK, Basement, and DeWe of course.

Track Name: Ted Cruz Is The Zodiac Killer On The Front Pocket
She's embroidering a T-shirt with the words
"Ted Cruz is the Zodiac Killer" on the front pocket
I wish I'd been there
When she was drawing Saturn on her notebook.
She's so beautiful, and I feel so stupid.


When I spoke to you for the first time in so long,
the moon was behind you. I thought that was significant.
You're just as far away as space is from me.
Starlight in your eyes as you spin out of reach.
Track Name: Drive to Seaside
I want the vulnerability
I want you to see me
For who I truly am
I want to ask you how you feel about me
And every single thing that we see when we're together

I see comfort in your eyes
As you see through my wall
Your company among the only things
That bring me peace at all
Track Name: Bless You, Tom McCall
Ideal World
Rain on the window
I am in love
No More Waiting!
No More Waiting!
What you dreamt has come to pass.
