about

NB: this album was meant to be listened to in it's entirety, and each song 'cross-fades' into the next to make for a seamless listening experience. Therefore if you download only a single track you may hear a slight transition at the beginning and at the very end of each song. This is Normal.

[liner notes from actual CD]
I’m not one for liner notes, but I feel like this album needs at least a little explaining. I love it how music is so periodic in a person’s life. I could never write this music again, as it simply reflects a short period of my life - with most of the songs being penned between late 2003 and 2006. From composition to actual recording was a slow process involving several patient years until the ideal partner materialized in the form of producer Erik Herbst. The production of this album was then a huge labor of love for both myself and Erik, and together we really tried to capture the spirit of the music as best we could. Therefore I truly hope this music finds you during a period of your life when you need it most, and where it’s genuine meaning resides. I also wish that this music be as cathartic for you to listen to as it was for me to write.

with love,

Joel Fountain

Track Name: Lindsay's Song
Thanks for being my friend when I needed u,
cuz I needed you like you'll never know
when others left me down u were there for me
said a pray'r for me, wouldn't leave me alone

we talked all through the night about everything
and ur words did bring me close to home
it didn't matter how far away u were
there was no censor on your heart and soul

they say we're only human
but I don't think that's true
I think that were all angels
especially when I think of u

in a thousand years we both won't be known
and so overgrown this world will be
all we have is now to say the things
that love can bring
and be free from fear

so thanks for being my fiend when I needed u
cuz I needed u like you'll never know
I can't give you much of anything
except to sing this song for you

they say were only human
but I don't think that's true
I think that we're all angels
esp when I dream of you

Track Name: Maps and Signs
I always drive alone
to where you are
these empty roads
I've seen that sign before
you think I'd know by now
to turn this car around

It filters through my head
spinning wheels
the things you said
It's not that I'm afraid
It's more like scared to death
when broken bones hit the road

I drive all night
I don't need no light
It's pressed on my mind
your maps and signs

I wish I could relax
rest my head
and call you back
you're colder than before
so what's this heater for?
never keeps me warm

I drive all night
I don't need no light
It's pressed on my mind
your maps and signs
your maps and signs
your maps and signs

I drive alone
Track Name: Everready
Anywhere you want me to
I will be the same
Any way I have to do
I’ll Remain

Unchanged

And u can bet your bet your life On me
And u can bet your bet your everything

Call me on the telephone
Says it hurts your ears
Apalachia isn't home
The Eagle, veers low
Controlled

And I will bet my bet my life On her
I will bet my beat my everything

I am the Rock of Gibralter
And I stand so Strong, I will not move
Track Name: I understand
[He...]
If I could change what I said
it'd be different now
if I could read ur letters again
I'd understand

but I was where I was
and I needed a friend

[she...]
I understand what your going thru
but I can't heal that for you now
cuz I'm not the girl you thought you knew
I send this message clear to u.

[he...]
If u thought I didn't care, I'd understand
I couldn't breathe without your air
no fight in me

I was where I was
I needed a friend!

[she...]
I understand what your going thru
but I can't heal that for you now
cuz I'm not the girl you thought you knew
I send this message clear to u.

[he mumbles...]
she was where she was
I needed a friend
she was where she was
(i don't know you)
I needed a friend
(& I don't wanna see you)
she was where she was
(u just forget everything!)
she was where she was….
(lie)

[she...]
I understand what your going thru
but I can't heal that for you now
cuz I'm not the girl you thought you knew
I send this message clear to u.
I understand what your going thu (u made your point)
but I can't heal that for you now
cuz I'm not the girl you thought you knew
I send this message clear to u.
Track Name: Faultless
take it fast or take it slow
it don't mean much if you don't let go
of the blame
blame

Faultless (faultless) you will fly
against the stone brown dirt and the burnt black sky

It's too short to have control
It's too long to ever know why we came
white games
Saltless saltless lakes run dry
leaving stone brown dirt and a burnt black sky

our human needs they grow on trees
and nothings real until you bleed
out human needs like paper trees
where nothings real until you bleed
so just bleed

So take this life and claim your gold
the child that dies in hiding in your soul
souls
thoughtless thoughtless heavy lies
hit the stone brown dirt see the blood red skies

our human needs they grow on trees
and nothings real until you bleed
out human needs like paper trees
where nothings real until you bleed
so just bleed

hit the stone brown dirt see the blood red skies...
Track Name: Psycho
Hey, how r u?
I'm that guy
u once knew
some special guy
who wanted u
and smothered u

just wanted u to know me
that's all
but u won't know me
at all

guess I blew it again
words aren't my friend
didn't mean to say
what u read
shouldn't of said
anything

just wanted u to love me
that's all
but I'm so weak now
and you're so tall, so tall
so I say

Don't let it go away
don't try and hide your pain
just let it show
cause I know u felt the same and so I say
(repeat)

to strangers and fools that I'm fine
so untrue
please just go away I cannot cope
with what to say

just wanted u to love me
that's all
but I'm so weak now
and you're so tall, so tall
so I say

Don't let it go away
don't try and hide your pain
just let it show
cause I know u felt the same and so I say
(repeat)

I'm just a stranger
and that's all I'll ever be
Maybe in our next life
we can keep each other company

[Solo]

hey, how r u
I'm that guy
u once knew.
Track Name: Broken
Being Broken is beautiful
that’s what you said
If being broken is so beautiful
then you paint me red, a sunset sky,
with trees that bleed from sweet sap eyes
If being broken is so beautiful
then why can’t I feel beautiful?

every moment is truthful
that's what you said
if every moment is so truthful
then that was then
and this is now
so tell me where it begins and ends
if every moment is so beautiful
then why can’t I feel
you’re beautiful

thank God there’s no drunken photographs
to make our piece of beauty pornographed
it would kill me

kill me
you’re so beautiful

you’re so beautiful

Being Broken is beautiful
that’s what you said.
Track Name: Dream
Dust and Bones, a heart of steel
I’m afraid I took that pill

Now I’m as cold as ice
and no one wins my fight

truth be known I was scared
it doesn’t mean I didn’t care

you have to be alone
to carve your soul from stone

I will turn from view
light reveals the truth

I will wait, wait for this
dream to pass, veil to lift

I won’t give up the fight
till darkness turns to light

I will turn from view
light reveals the truth
Track Name: Freezing
Falling like the snow
and freezing in slow motion
drifting without cause
I melt into this ocean

I tried my best to be
someone that u might see
but not me, not me

Now this year has passed
Janvier (january) has spoken
we'll tumble in the frost
like avalanches rolling

repeat the same mistakes
when will I see my traits
too late, too late

this world so fragile ours to love and hold
when will I see I'm carving my own mold

why are we so lost
is it all for nothing?
these battles won and lost
killing all for nothing

I feel ashamed to be
someone who does nothing, nothing
not me

this world so fragile ours to love and hold
when will I see I'm carving my own mold
Our lives so fragile ours to love and hold
when will I see I'm carving my own mold
Track Name: Tidal Wave
So far away
from who I am today
my house bore a child
she was meek and I was mild

like a tidal wave
that hits the shore
you raped and you ravaged
my home you tore

when you fall from grace
remember, you're not alone
you can bear more pain
and through your suffering, regain
compassion

so I watch and I wait
to make sure it's safe
Cause I don't want to drown
from more waves in this town

I trusted your storm
when I should have locked my door
My love gave you your wind
so you blew my home in

when you fall from grace
remember, you're not alone
you can bear more pain
and through your suffering, help others, regain
trust

there's a storm in all of us
there's a storm in all of us
