about

We Rise and Dance We Sleep and Dream songs swing from sweet to savage, with a heaviness that is hard to shake but still cathartic.

This record continues to situate while stretching TWIN's genre defying style featuring banjo, flute, accordion, guitar, cello, samples and integrated harmonies. Tracks 5 and 6 mark the greatest departure with heavy drums, distortion/wah bass assaults and an amped up looping violin that will leave you short of breath!

Track Name: Looking for love
Went out looking for love Just because it felt like that's enough
Got pretty roughed up by the tough until I had enough
Jumped right back in the game getting laid the new rule feel no shame young dumb and full of cum doing drugs drinking rum and all that stuff Killed a few on the way but what can I say that's how we role these days
Got checked out for that aids and on that day I prayed and oh I prayed
tried to run all away moved to L.A then on up to the bay
Looking for that freeway between the roads and waves most everyday Ask myself what is home and why I need to roam for my soul
Went out looking for love Just because it felt like that's enough
Track Name: Ghost Town Lullaby
and as the towns slip away with the movement of grain
to the city they go and I'm playin a show and I hope you'll sing with me
and I hope you'll find someone so good to meet
and as the sadness sets in with all my good friends
I just bear it and grin cuz it's not a sin to smile when your poor to keep and open door

Here's a ghost town story
Freeway leaving
Ghost town leaving
Ghost town sleeping under the overpass
Ghost town leaving
Freeway leaving
Ghost town sleeping
Stories over
Track Name: S.O.S Centipede
There's a brand new dance
kind of freaky pants
Called the centipede
How you do it now
Fall down on the ground
Move your body now
Move it all around

Do the centipede
building falling down
falling all around
Duck and cover now
Move your body now
Move it all around
Do the centipede

S.O.S emergency !!!
Track Name: Newfoundland Love Song
Love
I got to town so broken down I wore a frown I wore a frown
I wandered up and I wandered down I wandered all around this town
The sky was grey most everyday and I had nothing good to say
I drove the car as far as far as far away to the coves and the bays
The boats are docked and the doors are locked and people don't talk that much anymore Like they did once before
We dig and dig for shiny stones but no one knows but no one knows
All it takes for the ice to break sun through the clouds on my face
I crack a smile
I like to go where the sorrows strong and the broken souls all sing along
Love
I like to know what's on your mind I think it might be something kind
The Sun came out the other day I walked up to the cove's and bays
The ice it runs with the sun I sit atop of everyone

I sent a prayer to all of those with broken bones, broken homes, broken goals, broken souls and a broken nose
I sent a prayer across the Sea I hope it finds someone like me
I sent a prayer through the Trees deep in the roots I asked for peace
I sent a prayer into the Wind I hope it finds all my kin
I sent a prayer up to the Moon I hope it comes and finds you soon
I sent a prayer into the Sun I hope is shines on everyone
I sent a prayer just for You I hope you share it with someone to
I sent a prayer to everyone up to the Stars the great beyond
I sent a prayer just for Love I hope it comes I hope it comes

Love Love Love Love Love Love Love
