We hid the answers in the wrong time Misread our bearings as if by design And now how will you ever find All the pieces I’ve left behind? Sail up the timestream at the high tide, counter-clockwise Track constellations in these unknown skies Tell me - how will you ever find All the pieces I’ve left behind? How will you ever find All the pieces I’ve left behind? Pulled from the river while you’re midstream, In your daydream Fading like an unused memory And now how will you ever find all the pieces I’ve left behind?

Sometimes in the morning I just can’t open my eyes Thinking that I’ll know better But I don’t to my surprise When it’s all you want to be you want to see you’ll ever need Took a look around the corner I could hardly see with my blind eye When something came into focus Essential by surprise When it’s all you’ll ever need you’ll ever be you’ll ever see you’ll ever feel you find is real

An empty cup, the echoing sound Never filling up, let’s go another round Drink and drown, a sea on your shirt Til you’re beaten down, a hurt for the hurt Soothe your head, before you get sick All day in bed, she’s just another fix On overdrive, you’ll run out of heart The last man alive, a shot in the dark Songbird, fly as high as you can Backwards, before things got out of hand Survivors will call you a broken man If they tell your story first Now you stay inside, to block out the sun And try to hide, since it’s too late to run Ignored the call, regret won’t stop when you fall Songbird, fly as high as you can Backwards, before things got out of hand Survivors will call you a broken man If they tell your story first

I dreamed A dream of you

about

Trying to make the best use of the pandemic downtime - no shows, no practices - the humans of Guest Directors gathered up some wayward musical snippets, riffs, and partial song ideas, and started tracking ideas in their respective homes. The result is more experimental than their previous releases, incorporating drones, loops, electronic percussion, and keyboards - a sound that isn't entirely unfamiliar, but decidedly different for the band.
