about

"Kinch is doing it the right way by saying, "Screw it" - they're just doing it." - Jim Adkins (Jimmy Eat World)

"It's really a close reflection to Sub Pop post-grunge era, with bands like the Posies and Sunny Day Real Estate." - In Your Speakers

This album is influenced by lux coffee, boss orange distortion pedals, steinway b's, david foster wallace, samplemoog, anxiety, acid reflux and downstrokes.

Track Name: When I was Young
When I was Young / When I was Young / You were the Only One
When I was Young / When I was Young / You were the Only One

Drive Drive Drive Drive

Keep low my Head / With a pocket full of Meds / I was the Lonely One
But I wasn’t Dumb / I’m never Dumb / I told my Stories to a Girl

And she said: Everything about it makes you come alive, John, I really love the part
where you said you thought you’d died. I was in the corner, I was making my mind up.
I never want to see you when you get that high. I never want to see you when you get
that high.

Blood on my Feet / Been walking for Weeks / I am the Favorite Son
Eyes nice and Bright / We’re feeling alright / We are the Fortunate Ones

And she said: Everything about it makes you come alive, John, I really love the part
where you said you thought you’d died. I was in the corner, I was making my mind up.
I never want to see you when you get that high. I never want to see you when you get
that high.

When I was Young / When I was Young / You were the Only One
When I was Young / When I was Young / You were the Only One
When I was Young / When I was Young / You were the Only One
I wasn’t Dumb / I’m never Dumb / You are the Only One
Track Name: Evelyn
So, then I was born
On the corner
Fire hydrants
And homeless doctors

Came up with Sam
Outside Houston
We made love
In her father’s basement

I call you name: Evelyn. Over and over again.

Museum receptions
Always tell ‘em
How you found me
On the Navajo reservation

I was strung out
Lying facedown
Thought you were a wolf
Who come out to nurse me

I call you name: Evelyn. Over and over again.
I call you name: Evelyn. Over and over again.

Snow on your face
Like cheap grace
Let me make
You a bet
I’ll be gone
In a month

Over and over again.
Evelyn. Over and over again.
Track Name: Like a Curse
Oh, we get up most days now
You can find us at the crack of noon
I try to keep it light, windows bright
Oh, no, she don’t make it easy

I get so damned depressed, oh,
She made me take her to the psychic’s house
She tries to say goodbye, there’s no reply
Oh, no, you don’t make it easy

You hover around her body like a curse
And you reached down at her ankle from out of the hearse
And she ask you when you coming home when you coming home when you coming
home out of the earth.

I try to understand it
Soooo, I took her to the Ivy League
They told me, “Sorry, son, but you know that you can’t take her in here.”
Oh, I’ve been trying so hard now. Don’t you know you take me to my knees
She told me, “Sorry, son, but you know that you can’t do that in here.”

You hover around her body like a curse
And you reached down at her ankle from out of the hearse
And she ask you when you coming home when you coming home when you coming
home out of the earth.

You hover around her body like a curse
And you reached down at her ankle from out of the hearse
And she ask you when you coming home when you coming home when you coming
home out of the earth.

Out of the earth. Out of the earth.
Track Name: 45 Minutes
I’ll call you in a minute when I get some time
I can’t be alone. I can’t be alone.
I’ll call you in a minute when I get some time
They followed me home. They followed me home.

The found her in the garden The found her in the garden The found her in the garden
The found her in my garden

All Right.

They’re sleeping in the hallway by my bedroom door
I can’t get by. I can’t get by
They’re sleeping in the hallway by my bedroom door
I can’t get by. I can’t get by

I’m naked in the kitchen. I’m naked in the kitchen. I’m naked in the kitchen with my
daughter’s knife. My daughter’s knife. My daughter’s knife.

In 45 minutes I’ll be outta here. I’m outta here. I’m outta here tonight.
In 45 minutes you’ll be on your own. You’re on your own. You’re on your own.

All Right. All Right. All Right. All Riiiiiiiight.

They take me to the doctor wanna look inside
What’s on their minds What’s on their minds.
They take me to the doctor wanna look inside
What’s on their minds What’s on their minds.

Just take me to a meeting. Just take me to a meeting. Just take me to a meeting I got
blood in my mouth. Got blood in my mouth. Got blood in my mouth.

In 45 minutes I’ll be outta here. I’m outta here. I’m outta here tonight.
In 45 minutes you’ll be on your own. You’re on your own. You’re on your own.

All Right. All Right. All Right. All Riiiiiiiight.
Track Name: That's Just the Mess That We're In
Listen!
Just keep it in line.
I tell you. You’re doing just fine.
I gotta feeling. It’s all in your mind.

Muffin!
Just cut that cord.
You got a hunger. You always want more.
I gotta feeling. You’ll never be bored.

That’s just the mess that we’re in.

Come on!
Tell me your secret.
Com on!
Just like we made it.
I gotta tell you. I’ve never felt so fit.

That’s just the mess that we’re in.

I gotta tell you. I’m done being wicked.

That’s just the mess that we’re in.
Track Name: Once, I Was a Mainsail
Once, I was a mainsail
Filled up with a strong gale
Arms and legs all akimbo
And you were the only thing that I would tie myself to.

She came out of her halfshell
A Botticellian nightmare
Her toes, an archipelago
Spread out across the sea separating you from me.

Oh oh oh
Our bodies grow
Oh oh oh
Our spirits slow
Oh oh oh
All parents know it’s true

The waves, well, they make her wakefull
The wind, well, it makes her rageful
She crooooowwwws that I am not able
And she is the only thing of which I’m ever afraid

Oh oh oh
Our bodies grow
Oh oh oh
Our spirits slow
Oh oh oh
All parents know it’s true

Yes, they Do!

Think I need some time to atone
Sail the open sea without home
The mist and the foam
A life overthrown
She says that we all die alone and she don’t see what the fuss is

ONCE, I WAS A MAINSAIL
ONCE, I WAS A MAINSAIL
ONCE, I WAS A MAINSAIL
Track Name: Tea Party Bomba
I have heard they’re killing old people by the shore. It can’t be true.
But to be sure, Grandma, I’ll take you, and bring you to my home.

I won’t be sleeping on the sofa when the call comes through.
When you need me there I’m gonna know just what to you.
You can feel it in the water, you taste it in the water more and more

And I was swimming in the ocean while a time bomb ticking
Tore the covers off the city and the coast started slipping
I felt it in my fingers, I feel it now that all of this will end.

I have heard they’re killing old people by the shore. It can’t be true.
But to be sure, Grandma, I’ll take you, and bring you to my home.
Track Name: Bye Bye Bye Bye
Even if our bodies are broken
(oh oh oh)
And even if our parents are just tokens
(oh oh oh)
Don’t act like you don’t hear the explosions
(oh oh oh)
Baby, drive me back to New Canaan
(oh oh oh)

Bye bye bye bye

I thought that they all owed us a reason
(oh oh oh)
I know now that we’re not owed a reason
(oh oh oh)
I don’t think we can live off emotion
(oh oh oh)
I wish that we could change with the seasons
(oh oh oh)

Bye bye bye bye

I don’t think he ever knew

Last night I had a dream. Think I was thinking about you.
Everynight I have this dream. Think I’m thinking about you.

Bye bye bye bye

I don’t think he ever knew
Track Name: Ocean
Recall: That all through that year, we drank lukewarm beer. I didn’t like it but it worked
My red face would smirk. Our bodies would jerk. I turned our rhythm into code.
My songs were all odes in Phrygian mode. And how did you reciprocate.
At first you’d be late. Then you’d dissipate. And I was left with lukewarm beer.

They say that you were my first addiction.
I helped you break into the natatorium.
I can remember the smell of chlorine.
And how I never felt so good and clean.
Oh, oh oh oh oh

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
(I did it, everything you asked for. I did it, everything you asked for)
I never saw you look so good. Your hair was like money.
And Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh
(I did it, everything you asked for. I did it, everything you asked for)
I never thought I’d write these word. Not for all the money in the world.
I know I know I know I know I know.
When you’re young. It’s so hard.

Recall: The turns that I took to find the big book and all the coffee that I’ve drunk.
The deepest of funks. Low, mean and sunk. My only rhythm is my cough.

They say that you were my first addiction.
I helped you break into the natatorium.
I can remember the smell of chlorine.
And how I never felt so good and clean.
Oh, oh oh oh oh

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
(I did it, everything you asked for. I did it, everything you asked for)
I never saw you look so good. Your hair was like money.
And Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh
(I did it, everything you asked for. I did it, everything you asked for)
I never thought I’d write these word. Not for all the money in the world.
I know I know I know I know I know.
When you’re young. It’s so hard.

Recall: That all through that year, we drank lukewarm beer. I didn’t like it but it worked
My red face would smirk. Our bodies would jerk. I turned our rhythm into code.

Track Name: The Incandenza
I know that you think you’re so special
Been making that face all your life
If you want, Gonna have it, Cuz you need it, So you take it
Don’t ask permission
A life lived in fear is no life, I say

You say that they’re working you hard, Son
You say that they give you no rest
Do you miss me, Dream of me, Cuz you need me, So you hate me
Don’t ask forgiveness
A life on bended knee is no life, I say

Oh, I’m so ugly

Over and over and over and over
I crawl into her arms

Oh, such a listener
I’ll tell her my stories
Over and over and over and over
I crawl into her arms

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

They say that I can’t stick around anymore
They’re sorry, but it happens all the time
Still I’ll miss it, How you feel it, How you taste it, How your’e in it
Don’t send flowers
Life is for the living, your mother always said.

Oh, I’m so ugly
Come down and love me
Over and over and over and over
I crawl into her arms

Oh, such a listener
I’ll tell her my stories
Over and over and over and over
I crawl into her arms
