about

Getting Loopy is an exploration into the depths of circular emotions and looping playlists full of self-exposing cries. It's a love album, searching to be about something more "Substantial."

Track Name: Lovlily
Hey there lovelily on your London sill.
Let my heart beat still and young again,
If just for the nearness of you.

I took you love willing
In the morning still and you whispered
Water and sun like a gun to my temple
You are my temple

And should in your soil you root,
Break ground and reach of for truth,
Could I learn to love your bouquet, you?

You, reaching up past the sheets for cover
From all the love you ever knew,
Till up on my sill you are,
Till up on my sill are you
Reaching past all of the cover
for ..

Hey there lovelily and your willy will
My intention is still to hold your heart
In the crook of my shoulder, and smolder.

And when spring comes what will bloom,
What can be done to
See colors and others than the nearness,
than the nearness of..

You reaching up past the sheets for cover
From all the love you had to lose,
Til up on my sill you are,
Til up on my sill are you

Oh hey there lily laying on my sill,
Won’t you let me heart beat?
Hey there lily laying on my sill,
Won’t you let my heart beat still.

Let my heart beat still.
Track Name: Popsickles
I bet if I could tell them why the river runs dry,
They’d give you a degree, but not me.
Don’t you know that when you fly much too high
Them politicians gonna turn a blind eye.
They don’t need to see what’s happ’ning to the trees.
At least that’s my philosophy.

Whooaahhoooo, Tell tale stories, pickup time,
and a play on rhythm’s rhyme is gonna fail
If all you want is to believe. There’s no reprieve.
You gotta work it, gotta yell it. Gotta throw it in their face.
Get your permit. Get’m there and leave a trace.
Build and build and build and up to your dreams.
At least that’s my philosophy.

Don’t you know that
Without a pop hook, no one changes anything.
We’re all just getting tossed around.
Until, we start searching for what we need
We all get dragged around.
So I’m say no!

So if you’re living on confusion, hopped up on brain contusions
Gigantic star of a heart about to burst
may look good now,
But when it blows, it’s gonna hurt.
Still you’re gonna smile at your brands,
Get up and get your tan.
You know that RVCA will not leave you,
So what’s your master plan?
It could be enough to get you what you want?

So don’t you know that
Without a pop hook, no one changes anything.
We’re all just getting tossed around.
Until, we start searching for what we need
We all get dragged around.
So I’m say no!
Track Name: Appleblossom Blues
You know I grew
Behind the river with you,
And I at that time knew
How every flower would move.
I would ground them in my mortar and fan up the flames,
Singing it’s the least you can do to get the world scented wild again.

There was no flower could convince you to stay
Everything's got to change.
Like this gold that’s been filling my pockets,
It weighs on me.

Have I shown to you the greatest image of me?
Everything I ever wanted to be?
All of my timbers towering, and none of the faults in my hands?
With I as my witness,

There was no flower could convince you to stay
Everything's got to change.
Like this gold that’s been filling my pockets,
It weighs down on me.

What is temporary? I don’t know every card that you hold.
I just wanted to believe
Magnificence is just that
Everything you want and
Apple blossoms in the spring.
The sweet honey-suckles pollen
Above your knees.
I’m beginning, please.
I’m beginning, please.
I’m beginning.
Track Name: Jesse Kind of Love St.
I don’t know how to let you go.
I don’t know, so I’m not letting go.
Though not for hope or any reason
To believe you are lost is the only logic
Holding down the beat.
You’re holding down this beat.

We’re senseless creatures.
Pretty faces with ugly features,
And shit for lovers, undercover
Masks on our souls, but I still can’t let you go.

Let lithe and little pains escape
And waste my, evolution
Is two thumbs up, casting time
To the tombs of love
I’ll never retrieve us pitiful sirens
Lost in the madness of redness and rashes
Draining my friends into nothing but ashes
Smoldering inside of love

We’re senseless creatures. Pretty faces with ugly features,
And shit for lovers, under cover masks on our souls.
But hell no, I’m never letting go.

No it doesn’t make sense,
I missed my rent.
Falling tight into pieces.
Are you even light anymore
Moments left I want them all, and
I want you.
Like I want follow through, and
Love that will shine just like gold.
Track Name: Sweetwater
I feed off of any kind of drug.
You know one’s never enough
But I don’t want nothing else,
I don’t care about the rest,
I’m just moving forward as best as I know,
As best as anyone ever taught me,
Though when’d I ever listen,
I need Sweetwater, I need.
I need Sweetwater, I need.

I feed on the taste of your when you’re running,
And I need to breath.
I breath you’re taking off our shirts,
You said one more. It won’t hurt.
I don’t want noone else,
I don’t care about the rest,
I’m just moving forward,
As best as I know as best,
As best as anyone ever taught me,
Though when’d I ever listen.
I need Sweetwater, I need.
I need Sweetwater, I need.

I’m getting it from the source,
The cold? Please, it don’t hurt.
...
I’d rather be drinking in your chill.

I need sweetwater, I need, I need.
I need sweetwater, I need, I need.
I need sweetwater, I need, I need.
I need sweetwater, I need...
