Ian sorry for the pun, but I love the HELL out of this record ;)

needsmorerage Just discovered this album. I'm not typically a big shoegaze fan. Most new shoegaze bands use the genre as an excuse to not to craft well-written songs... not so for Wood Lake! Beneath the wash of distortion and noise are great lyrics/melodies. Favorite track: Sam McGee.

Juan Alvarez Great tracks! I hear a lot of great influences. These guys have a lot of potential. Can't wait to see how the rest of the album turns out. Favorite track: Head In The Sand.

Track Name: Oceans
Ode to my woes
My odyssey of oddities
Where summer shimmer makes you high
Where summer shivers cause she's shy
They'll take your gentle years

I'm bringing on the end
It's easy now I can't pretend
Flushed away in great big seas
The oceans mean that much to me

Love fades away
Like shadows in the setting sun
Drifting apart like ships at sea
They're captive to the scenery
She's blowing like the breeze

I'm bringing on the end
It's easy now I can't pretend
Flushed away in great big seas
The oceans mean that much to me
Track Name: Still Life Collage
It ain't right
When a line become your device
It's all in the tone of the song

In my hand
I can make a pound from a gram
Misleading, but is it so wrong?

You'll relate
And I'll have a verse in your tune
But Iím not the only one there

Give it time
And the world will paint your mind
A still life collage that's called you

Hey it's me
And it's you all you've pursued
Collage
Bittersweet
You can see the old and the youth
A still life collage that's called you

Some would call it sad
And some wouldn't understand
But all in all they can't much expand past collage
Track Name: Head In The Sand
Life ticks the time
Takes you past prime
Now your heads in the sand

A count to the end
From start it descends
Till your heads in the sand

The more it's revealed
The less it's concealed
Then your heads in the sand

Times your ally
Till you deny
That your heads in the sand

Leave you?
can't deceive you
wanna love you
Wanna see you relate to
Younger hunger
Thick as thunder
Gotta wonder the use

Bending the rules
Always be cool
When your heads in the sand

Stay above all
Fall asleep tall
When your heads in the sand

Leave you?
can't deceive you
wanna love you
Wanna see you relate to
Younger hunger
Thick as thunder
Gotta wander to
Leave you?
can't deceive you
wanna love you
Wanna see you relate to
Younger hunger
Thick as thunder
Gotta wonder the use

Dim lights to me are bright when my head's stuck in the sand
It's easy to sleep at night cause it's so dark in the sand
Track Name: Madeline
Sweet Madeline
Caring and kind
It all feels so clear

Autumn again
Sweet summers end
I'll spend it all with her

Wasting away
Day by day
I'm still so secure

Winter is near
It brings me to tears
Here I am with her

Older and older
The years can feel like days
Like snow in springtime
The time just melts away
Hot sun of summer
It shines for Madeline
If we were younger
We'd still want extra time
Track Name: Easy Love
Easy love today
Easy loves on it's way
The writing on the wall
The beauty of befallen nulls

Easy love throws you away

Living lore in life
Cliche of two lovers strife
Some can relate
Some will slow and separate

Easy love throws you away

I cannot start to believe what they say
Now easy love's on it's way
I cannot start to believe what they say
Now easy love's on it's way

Living lore in life
Cliche of two lovers strife
Some can relate
Some will slow and separate

Easy love throws you away
Track Name: Barrhaven
A bus stop in May
Barrhaven's night's like a prison's day
It's anti-extremes
Heads full of nothing but little dreams

Who would think
That personality
Can melt into the heat
The chain gains a new link

Dirt on the street
Dirt on the building
Where nothing's cheap
The buses escape
Heads down the corn row
That leads away

Who would think
That personality
Can melt from into the heat
The chain gains a new link
Once again

Death toll is high
Easy to fail when you do not try
Wiz weed and rims
Civics gather around the garbage bins

Who would think
That personality
Can melt from into the heat
The chain gains a new link
Track Name: Sam McGee
Head my wise advice
The stories are misleading
Don't waste your time

But your heart is set
And you've caused the wounds you're treating
Down in the mines

Cold winds sweep the night
And chills your southern bones
Warmed by your blanket beer

The prospect fades away
But will can keep you going
Till your hopes and dreams give in

A fool and his life soon will part
Ambitions as big as his heart
Work to perfect his lost art
But for every ounce of gold, there is a ton of stone.
Won't rest easily Sam McGee

Take your loss in stride
It's all that's left to right you
Don't feel misguided

Good can't help you know
The fevers cold and burning
No one there to bury you

A fool and his life soon will part
Ambitions as big as his heart
Work to perfect his lost art
But for every ounce of gold, there is a ton of stone.
Won't rest easily Sam McGee
Track Name: Hollow
And I hear
I hear the falling skies
Then she sleeps within me
And all her dreams they fill my eyes

I feel nothing
Am I happy?
Am I bleeding from inside?
No will, but I can feel you
Hollow but sincere

Novocaine
The numb enthusing feign
Then she breathes my words out
And all my thoughts they then subside

I feel nothing
Am I happy?
Am I bleeding from inside?
No will, but I can feel you
Hollow but sincere

All my dreams
Are swims upstream and helpless themes
Dull colour schemes
Shield my eyes
From silver dyes and butterflies
That fill the skies
Light her sheen with gasoline
Then shoot the scene
For silver screens
Groups of crows wonít let me go
I think they know
Apart we grow

And I hear
I hear the falling skies
Then she sleeps within me
And all her dreams they fill my eyes

I feel something
Am I crazy?
Am I bleeding from inside?
No will, but I feel something.
There's something
Track Name: Comfort You (Goodbye)
Relax distorted eyes
Gotta leave gotta cut some ties
This ain't a long goodbye
I'll keep it short
Short on time, going somewhere

Till the sun burns its name in the wind
Till well’s are drawn, I’ll be gone
Till the day lets the night absorb it's light
I'll be within the out of sight

Know a kiss today would bring back whatever I had lost
Still along the way it seems what I had saw as snow was frost

Take back that heart that used to comfort you alone
Happy apart but I can't stomach two alone

Too late I've got to go
Streets to Roads, gonna flee leave me be
The wheel keeps turning till
The by and by, so goodbye anxious eyes

Till the earth stops it's spin and breaks within
Till days are long, I'll be gone
Till the ends condemns the means it deems obscene
I'll be reduced to dopamine

Know a kiss today would bring back whatever I had lost
Still along the way it seems what I had saw as snow was frost

Take back that heart that used to comfort you alone
Happy apart but I can't stomach two alone

Take back that heart that used to comfort you alone
Happy apart but I can't stomach two alone
Sadness is art and art can make you feel alone
Doomed from the start but I can't leave you two alone
