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

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

about

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

This record continues to stretch TWIN's genre defining craft 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!
