Storm 04:37
The rain comes, and I’m pushing it down. The skies lift. I can see what’s around. The walls close. My heart starts to pound. I push through with a thundering sound. Hear that thundering sound. The wind swirls my feet off the ground. The clouds spin. They pull me up from way down. With that thundering sound. What flows through me escapes endlessly. Hear that thundering sound. The forces calm. My strength now is found. I lift my eyes up looking for some safe ground. With that thundering sound. What goes through me escapes undemandingly. Hear that thundering sound. The snow comes, and I’m dancing it down. As my mind lifts, I see everything. I’m found.

I Can See 02:36
Oh, how can I explain this strange unexpected change. I guess I’ll learn to fight, try to figure out what’s right. Cover up in red. Without fear, oh I’m not dead oh I’m not dead. I can see. I battle in the night. My friends don’t know my plight. Mask around my head. I sense your near oh without fear oh I’m not dead oh I’m not dead. I can see. I can feel you now. I can see somehow. Somehow. Somehow. I can see. To walk I use my cane, hide this unexpected fame. I can see.

Alias 03:40
I watch from the stairs, Searching for anyone, don’t care. I drink down my fight, That’s what it takes to sleep through the night. But two leaps away and I’d die for you. My heart falls to doom, my lie. And all of my shame, Looking for anyone, to blame. A light in my sight, Can’t get close enough to make it right. But two leaps away and I’d die for you. My heart falls to doom, my lie. But two leaps away and I’d break him through. I won’t fall to doom, I’d fight. I don’t know where to go, who to be, what’s inside of me. And all of this time, Running from anyone one, in my mind. My strength not my might, I can’t leave. I can’t accept the flight. But two leaps away and I’d die for you. My heart falls to doom, my lie. But two leaps away and I’d break him through. I won’t fall to doom, I’d fight, for you, I’d fight.

The Phoenix (Thinking of You) One by one other’s thoughts invade my mind. I try to run. I try my best to hide. But these thoughts they creep inside. I can’t stop thinking of you. There’s nothing I can do. You’re crying. I can’t stop thinking of you. There’s nothing else, just darkened cells and lightening, lightening. Keys and locks all these doors redefine. I lift and spin push each and every line. In my heart some dark resides. I can’t stop thinking of you. There’s nothing I can do. You’re dying. I can’t stop thinking of you. There’s nothing else, just darkened cells, fantastic lightening. Please just push it down, please just push it down. Please just push it down, please just push it down. Sparks reacting, it will grow, it will blow. Let me go, oh let me go. All these thoughts they come from what’s inside. As half myself I’ve caused a deep divide. Now I choke this pain’s in stride. I can’t stop thinking of you. There’s nothing I can do. You’re dying. I can’t stop thinking of you. There’s nothing else, just darkened cells, fantastic lightening.

Sugar 04:38
My memories go again, as I pack my bags and leave. Knowing there just isn’t a place in this world for me to be. How can I stay this way, watching you decay away. From one touch of my skin. Seeing you death descend from just one innocent kiss. I keep thinking of all the things in my life that I will truly miss. Why do I need this game, holding you, without the blame. From one touch of my skin. Each one they stay with me. Walking away from him, I catch sight of the mark on me. Wonder if there will be a day, when my life could be for me. The next step I might take, may be my one last escape. From the touch of my skin. Each one they stay with me, oh strength and fear don’t disappear. Past, today, just one touch and you’ll forever stay. With one touch of my skin, one touch of my skin.

about

Koshari Falls Church, Virginia

Built around the sparkling voice of Barb Western and the signature guitar playing of Bryan Baxter, Koshari blends the spacey, effects-drenched swirl of bands like My Bloody Valentine or Beach House with a bit of aggression and heaviness. The result is a creative voice at once familiar yet without close analog. ... more
