about

Grow Your Garden is a reminder that we’re all born with something unique and equally important within us. We are all given seeds to grow into into abundant plants that help heal and nurture the earth. Your garden are the ideas, actions and dreams that keep you going every day, that give you a reason to trust your gut and make something beautiful out of your time on this planet. Nobody can take it away from you and nobody can tell you it doesn’t matter because even a small garden can feed you for a lifetime. So trust your intuition, put in the hard work, celebrate what makes you different and share it with others. There’s nothing like walking through a beautiful garden that makes you want to plant your own.

Track Name: Aorta
Sitting in your chest
Like a bird in a cage she’s singin'
She’s a compass she’s a bible she's a friend
If you let it
Open
The world could feel it beating
If you listen
Hear what it’s sayin’
Is it broken
The world could use it's healing

Speaking is what you do with your mind
Singing is what you do with your heart
Moving is what you do with your mind
Dancing is what you do with your heart
Which one do you listen to?
Moving is what you do with your mind
Dancing is what you do with your heart

Wake up every morning you can hear it so clear
It’s honest and it’s gorgeous and it knows how to steer
You can’t keep it quiet, been trying for years
It’s moving you to do the things they told you to fear

Wake up every morning you can hear it so clear
It’s honest and it’s gorgeous and it knows how to steer
It’s moving you to do the things they told you to fear
The signs point here

Speaking is what you do with your mind
Singing is what you do with your heart
Moving is what you do with your mind
Dancing is what you do with your heart
Which one do you listen to?
Moving is what you do with your mind
Dancing is what you do with your heart
Track Name: Ear to Ear
If you break it down
As small as you could
The make up of you and me 
It’s energy it’s nothing but everything, everything 
Its moving constantly 
Floats to what you need 

You send waves through the air
Thought by thought, prayer by prayer
Just because you don’t know 
Where doesn't mean it’s not there
It is there
It’s all here
Ear to ear

It’s a frequency
You can tune it your way 
A vibration, collection of your dreams
She is a queen
She is listening
What you’re sending is what you will receive 
What are the messages you’re moved to make
What is that traveling from your heart to brain
How many times can you think it in a day
It starts between the eyes
Before it comes to life

You send waves through the air
Thought by thought, prayer by prayer
Just because, you don’t know 
Where doesn't, mean it’s not there
It is there
It’s all here
Ear to ear
Track Name: Overflow
You’re a boat in the ocean of everything that you reach for
It’s sea of
Your perceptions

And it’s filling up, giving a human a reason to give in
Overflowing
With intention

Why are you trying
To fit in a box that nobody opens
Just sittin’ on a shelf
All black and white
Your colors and your shapes
Are golden
You’re golden child
Why are you trying
To fit in a box that nobody opens
Your colors and your shapes
Are golden
You’re golden child

Keep swimming on, pushing for, picking up what you think will
Make you better
Make them want you

But what about all of the beautiful sights you’re missing
When you’re looking
What's ahead instead of what’s around

Why are you trying
To fit in a box that nobody opens
Just sittin’ on a shelf
All black and white
Your colors and your shapes
Are golden
You’re golden child
Why are you trying
To fit in a box that nobody opens
Your colors and your shapes
Are golden
You’re golden child
Track Name: One Hundred Pieces
Pull up the dirt, making a bed for the roots
Put in the work, flowers around, bound to bloom
And you, you were a gracious sun
You, you grew a garden strong
I thought you were gone

Love, hate, loss, remember
(When will you get out of me)
Nothing lasts forever
(I can still see your face so clearly)
Hope, joy, fear, remember
(When will you get out of me)
Nothing hurts forever

Good, bad, worse, remember
Nothing lasts forever
Looks, lust, tears, remember
Nothing hurts forever

Change, words, things, remember
Nothing lasts forever
Thoughts, life, death, remember
Nothing hurts forever

Breath, blood, bone, remember
Nothing lasts forever
Now, here, this remember
Nothing hurts forever

People would stop, looking at what, what we grew
They all wanna know, wanna know what, what we knew
And then, the summer had lost it’s love
You went, petals fell one by one
And I still pick them up
Track Name: Throne
You’re on my trail, you sniff me out, out of the crowd
Hear the people, what they’re talking about
Think I could give you everything you want somehow, somehow

You tip your glass, you twist your face to meet with mine
Looking through me like you forgot
I am made of the things you are, I bleed as you bleed

I am to you
A stepping stone
A card to pull
A name to know
In your book
You jot me down
To help you up
Upon your throne

You spread like fire, lions dressed as humble sheep
All of the people with their shimmering dreams
Climbing each other all they want is to be seen, be seen

Do
Do you
Do you really
Do you really want me
Do
Do you
Do you really
(Or do you just want my name?)

In and Out

Constellations of sensations
They move in like the ocean and they float back out
They move in like the ocean and they float back out
Conversations, information
They move in like the ocean and they float back out
They move in like the ocean and they float back out

Nothing is here forever
Everything has a pace
Particles are shaking in the foundation of everything that stretches to the edge of outer space

So why is it that we tremble
When something starts to change
We grab and pull it closer in with hopes to never see an end
It’s blinding but it’s just the way were trained

Situations, affirmations
They move in like the ocean and they float back out
They move in like the ocean and they float back out
Reputations, all creation
They move in like the ocean and they float back out
They move in like the ocean and they float back out

Whatever it is you wrap around
Whatever keeps you off the ground
It will go just like it came
Know that nothing stays the same
Our hands can’t hold the rain
Let it through you all the same
Track Name: Toughest Man
TOUGHEST MAN

Is he fact or is he fiction
Distraction his ammunition on your heart
Cleans up so good you won’t notice
He is hollow, covered up the fragile parts

Give it up man, understand that it’s not your fault
They’ve given you a rock for a heart
Put down your guns you can just let those tears fall
The toughest man ain’t no man after all

Works so hard so it looks easy
Keep those shades on, we all need that mystery
Fight that fight, that backwards current
Keep it chill, don’t feel too deeply or they’ll see

Give it up man, understand that it’s not your fault
They’ve given you a rock for a heart
Put down your guns you can just let those tears fall
The toughest man ain’t no man after all

Give it up man, understand that it’s not your fault
They’ve given you a rock for a heart
Put down your guns you can just let those tears fall
The toughest man ain’t no man after all
Track Name: In And Out
Constellations of sensations
They move in like the ocean and they float back out
They move in like the ocean and they float back out
Conversations, information
They move in like the ocean and they float back out
They move in like the ocean and they float back out

Nothing is here forever
Everything has a pace
Particles are shaking in the foundation of everything that stretches to the edge of outer space

So why is it that we tremble
When something starts to change
We grab and pull it closer in with hopes to never see an end
It’s blinding but it’s just the way were trained

Situations, affirmations
They move in like the ocean and they float back out
They move in like the ocean and they float back out
Reputations, all creation
They move in like the ocean and they float back out
They move in like the ocean and they float back out

Whatever it is you wrap around
Whatever keeps you off the ground
It will go just like it came
Know that nothing stays the same
Our hands can’t hold the rain
Let it through you all the same
Track Name: Africa
To move
To give
Yourself
To this
This sound
This beat
Is love
Is free


Take what you want, leave behind what you don’t at the door
Rhythm is religion, a reason to pray for
Take what you need, leave behind what you don't at the door
Let go, get low, get high, and find what you’re looking for
Can you feel it
Can you feel it

This is a mixture, it’s a fix that is humble and pure
To swallow sound, let it break down ‘till we’re finally cured
A space of no mistakes, no needing or wanting more
There is no sin, no sorrow, nothing to pay for
Can you feel it
Can you feel it

Get lost get found
