about

Clarke and the Himselfs Idaho

"A cultural wonder from Boise, Idaho, who has mastered mering shoegaze and one-man band wonkiness. Not unlike 'my Bloody Valentine,' as imagined through the production and performance values of Hasil Adkins." - Dane Hansen, KBGA

Track Name: Dull Blue Crayon
Dull Blue Crayon, I held you in my head
You would have spoken up, but you wrote instead
but now you're in my mind, and in your in my thoughts
though you were left behind, in a cardboard box

Painted Locke, you were in my mind,
but now you're just a thought, that was left behind
but I can open you up, and I can look at you
though you were left behind, in a forgotten room

But I'm still inclined, to the things you brought
though you're in my mind, and you're just a thought
but I know it's true, and I know to Trust
that you are made of Moon and made of Planet Dust

Pale Blue Dot, now I understand
You were in my mind, when I was on your land
But I know it's true, and I know to Trust
That you don't exist, without the rest of us

Dull Blue Crayon, I held you in my Head
You would have spoke up, but you wrote instead
and I know it's true, and I know to Trust
that you won't exist, without the rest of us.
Track Name: Sun Shines On You
say what you see so I could say too,
I waited a week so I could see you
so we could speak just like we used too

patiently breaking our heads

you say that you see the sun shine on you
all I can see is what I see through
so we could be just like we used too

patiently breaking our heads

you say that you see the sun shine on you
all I can see is what I see through
so we could be just like we used too

patiently breaking our heads
patiently breaking our heads
Track Name: Cabin Boy
I'm just a lonely Cabin Boy
I lay around and watch tv but that's my choice
I'm just a lonely Cabin Boy
I lounge around and smoke some weed but that's my choice
I guess I'm just waiting for
a telephone call, a knock on the door, a hole in the wall, a bottle of brooks
some type of catalyst or just a lucky rabbits foot
I'm searching for the space between our endless times and phases
and looking for the space between our endless days and ages
I'm looking for the space between our endless eyes and faces
I'm searching for the space between our endless times and phases
I guess I'm looking for a hole in time
I guess I'm looking for a hole in time
I guess I'm looking for a hole in time
I guess I'm looking for a hole in time
Track Name: Suicide Girl
I'm in Love with the girl in the Suicide note.
I'm in love with the girl in the Dark Cloud Coat.
I'm in love with the girl that bleeds from her knees
I'm in love with the girl with a Brain disease
I'm in love with the girl whose beautiful and smart
I'm in love with the girl who breaks my heart
I'm in love with the girl that I can't see
I'm in love with the girl in a Tragedy
I'm in love with the girl in the Suicide Coat
I'm in love with the girl who cut her throat
I'm in love with the girl that I can't see
I'm in love with the girl in a Tragedy.
And I'm in love with the world but I can't See
When I'm in love with the girl with a Brain Disease
and I'm in love with the world but I don't know
When I'm in love with the girl in the suicide coat
I'm in love with the world and I can't see
When I'm in love with the girl in a Tragedy
And I'm in love with the World but I don't know
when I'm in love with the girl in the suicide note
when I'm in love with the girl in the suicide note
when I'm in love with the girl in the suicide note.
Track Name: Conversations
They say you've been away, but where you've been they cannot say
They say you've gone away, but where you've been they cannot say
and I've been hearing whisperings of where you've been since you've been gone
I've been hearing whimperings now and again since you've been gone

They say you've been away, but where you've been they cannot say
They've say you've gone away, but where you've gone they cannot say

and I've been hearing voices in my head, calling out your name
having conversations with the dead, about the same thing
having conversations with my friends, about the same thing
having conversations with no one, about no one they say

They say you've been away, but where you've been they cannot say
They say you've been away, but where you've been they cannot say

and there's a river, flowing north, towards Idaho
but now that you've been and now that you're bored, and you don't know.
They say there's a river, flowing north, towards Alaska
and now that you've been and now that you're bored, yeah they'll ask ya.
and I've been having conversations in my head, with my friends
I've been having conversations in my head, with my friends
having conversations with the dead, about the same thing
having conversations with my friends, about the same thing
having conversations with no one, about no one they say

They say you've been away, but where you've been they cannot say
They say you've gone away, but where you've gone they cannot say

and I've been hearing whimperings now and again since you've been gone
I've been hearings whisperings of where you've been since you've been gone

They Say you've gone away, but where you've been they cannot say
They say you've been away, but where you've gone they cannot say.

Thursday Friday, I Talked to you.

We live in a Toxic World. We were born in the Toxic Dam.
We were birthed from the womb and we never understand why we live in the toxic land.
So I'm looking for my Toxic Girl, Cause I wanna do the Toxic Slam
and the higher that they make them they never understand why she couldn't
be a woman and I couldn't be a man.
Cause I'm just a Toxic Boy. And You're just a Toxic Girl.
And we both understand we were bread for the man to be born
In this Toxic World.

We live in the Toxic Sleep, we were moving to the Toxic Dance.
And I'm just a Toxic Creep, and I wanna hold your Toxic Hand.
Cause we live in the Toxic Dream, Yeah, We come from the Toxic Sludge.
And the only thing that I need, Is the Warmth of your Toxic Love.

Cause we live in the Toxic World, We were born in the Toxic Dam
We were birthed from the womb and we never understand
why we live in the Toxic Land.
So I'm looking for my Toxic Girl, Cause I wanna do the Toxic Slam
and the Higher that they make em they never understand
Why she couldn't be a woman and I couldn't be a man
Cause I'm just a toxic boy, and your just a toix girl
and we both understand we were bread for the man
To be born in this Toxic World.
