about

On 'Glass Period', we find a small chapel to personal grief. There's a chapel’s sense of calm, of refuge from the world, but also its starkness, its lack of cover from fear, its welcoming of the large and the small. There are small terrors that we must occasionally sit with for a while, which can be their own source of strength. There is air and there is time. This feeling, and the open space the album creates, stems partly from the liquid phrasing of Pasko’s voice and piano playing, but it's also largely the result of the elegant production treatments by producer/composer Henry Terepka (Zula, LEPT).

Track Name: Barking Dog
There's a reason why the dog is barking
Something is a threat till it's inside
And you're doing to me what she did to you
And you usually were, and I probably was

There's a reason why the dog is barking
Something is a threat till it's outside
'Cause you're born alone, then you die alone
You are born alone, then you die alone

But what about the time in between?
Can we ever resolve that inner feeling?
I am fine until I remember it's real
I am fine until I remember it's real

I miss you and then I miss everyone
I miss you and then I miss everyone
I loved you and then I loved everyone
Track Name: Favorite Dessert
I'm walking up to your favorite dessert in the store
Now I am passing it by
This is letting you go

I'm throwing out the bottle of shampoo you would use in the morning
When I think of you, I think of you
If loving you is letting you go...

Then I love you in the grocery store and again in the bathroom
Track Name: Open Windows
I picture you in tall grass
I picture you with no shoes on

Things that I have seen
Things I'll never see again

And there are open windows further in the distance
Am I mistaking them? Am I mistaking bright fires for red curtains?
And there were open windows further in the distance
Was I mistaking them? Was I mistaking bright fires for red curtains?

I'm talking about you
I'm talking about who you are and how I got so close

I'm looking out your window
I'm looking for you to look too
I'm looking out your window
It's important to me that you see this too

I picture you in tall grass
I picture you with no shoes on
Track Name: Me Alone
If you want to be alone then be alone, be alone
If you want to be alone then be alone, be alone

I tried breaking it
Tiny pieces
Left behind
Somewhere in my mind

If you want to be alone then be alone, be alone
If you want to be alone, leave me alone, me alone

I keep going back
Keeping it intact
Somewhere in my mind
I was left behind

I'm trying to find (x5)
I'm trying to find my way back (x2)
Track Name: The Still
I was afraid to fall in
I was afraid to fall out
... of wanting to stay in
... of growing out, growing out of it

I want to walk up to the tracks, hold my arms up, tilt my head back
I want to walk up to the tracks, hold my arms up, tilt my head back
... and float down, float down

You're unhappy
You're hidden
Carefully positioned in plain view
I'm not that bad
I just want my feeling back
Track Name: Get Right
I'm right beside a mountain in the sky
How lucky am I?

You're gonna lose me
You're gonna lose me

And I know why
And I know why

I'm right, I'm right, I'm right
