Easy on the eyes, but distant Even when we lie undressed Sleeping on the job, you twitch and yawn I could not apply the lesson you were trying to get through my skull You could not disguise your frustration Its a judgement call When the lust wears off Simple animal attraction Simple appetites to feed Bigger animals eat up the small I was under the impression we were gonna pull through You were underneath another dude Its a judgement call when the lust wears off And I could not hide my doubts Easy on the eyes, but cryptic Like a movie in reverse Bigger animals spit up the small

Split my love right down the middle Dig out every sour seed All the fat and gristle Split my love wide Split my chest right down the center A belly full of black bees Buzzing up through my ribs To slip past my teeth Oh, my lungs Balloons in a cage Oh, my heart Piss in the grapes The early runner rigs the race

Talk in the dark Loosen your curled-up tongue Caught in your mouth A cricket under a palm Humming in the kitchen Humming to yourself A silent actress, a leading man With violent habits and gentle hands Loosen up your grip Move in the dark Loosen your curled-up arms Tall in your gown Your body under my palms Cursing under your breath, cursing to yourself A fine example, a leading man With violent habits and gentle hands Loosen up your grip The bruise yellowed out Grey to brown Lakes underground The bruises fade out Grey to brown Lakes underground

Stormlines gathering dark in rows The weatherman stands in the rain Pirouettes into the howling gale Howling back up at the hurricane How could I predict this pressure system? The weatherman carries a lightning rod To Culvey Hill, under a thunderhead He don't budge, he don't budge He don't flinch when the bolt comes How could I predict this pressure system?

Crawl into the bathtub, spinning drunk Southern summer, cool my head in the tap Working through a hangover Monday morning Pale and shaky, sneaking off to throw up All my friends were off doing drugs on the roof of a church Driving to the north end, 1 A.M. The Cavalier Hotel looms from the hill Slip into the water, cool and dark All the neatly staggered lights from the pier We got naked and swam 'til the lights were alarmingly small

about

This is the noise that Kevin McNamara and I made as a ghostly tropical blues duo. We recorded the guitar and drums at the same time in our beer-soaked practice space at Crybaby Studios. Our room was beer-soaked because there was a bar above us and when their kegs leaked, it rained beer. The main vocals and Kevin's sweet harmonies were recorded in some of the same empty apartments where Senses Sensei was written.

about

yesper Seattle, Washington

yesper is a box with strings, one pair of hands, a mouth and a mic. Seattle is home now, but I still miss Virginia from time to time. i make records by myself because i'm afraid of commitment. i make records in secret so that they'll sound mysterious. i make records.
