I have this recording from when we sat out on the grass sketching in Surrey hills that would never pass you said that artists change the shape of the land mountain range moving shifted with penciled hand so when we see it we may not recognize that selfsame landscape laid out before our eyes Oooh and now I see that I’ve misdrawn the scene, likewise I can’t go back there to learn if I’m wrong or right But I was in London only the other night Walking by Queensway, missing that holy time

A view we’re overlooking well i just can’t give it a rest it’s a million miles from somewhere and the parking is the best Bonfire On Bonfire On Bonfire On the Moon radio from the station they’re sending everyone up Bonfire On Bonfire On Bonfire On the Moon

On Country Clouds, long be your day as you sit by the side of a fire place. Grass underfoot, leaves overhead, I'll hum a tune as you sleep in a river bed. Crystaline moon, no chance of rain. As it once was it can always be again. The nighttime sky as bright as day, wolbes howl and birds find a nest along the way. Easily, Here with me, I could spend a week or three on your cloud.

I was at our yearly camp You spent summer on your back In the quiet nights I thought I knew Thought I knew that I loved you I was with friends all the time Hard to keep you on my mind In the quiet nights I thought I knew It would be good to love you In the morning, fog on the lake I was hoping that we could go swimming With Eduardo Nike shorts and baggy t-shirts I was thinking that we could go swimming With Eduardo In another life In another time I would be a man I would have a dime We go to the past Often in our minds I can smell the air When I thought you were mine It was something nice Feel like all the rest I was sick from sweet I was truly blest If you know me now You don’t know me then Now I am not me I’ll be me again

She asked me if I had ever been camping. I asked her what kind of question is that? Do I look like a guy who’s never been camping? Look at my beard. Look at my hat. Yeah, man. Camping is grand. I like to camp all over the land. Way up in the mountains and down in the trees. I like to camp wherever I please. She asked me if I had ever been scared way up on a mountain by a lion or bear. A lion and bear oh my what a pair, well I’ve met a few but I’ve always been spared. Yeah man camping is grand. I like to camp all over the land. Way up in the mountains or down in the trees. I like to camp wherever I please. Yeah man camping is grand. I like to camp wherever I can Just throw up a tent and light up a fire. Sing out a songs like a chanting church choir. ooooooooo oooooooh my god!!! Whoa whoa whoa what’s that sound? Is there a bear around? She asked me again if I’d ever been camping. I asked her what kind of question is that. Do I look like a guy who’s ever been camping? Let’s get outta here before that thing comes back! Yeah man camping was grand. We had so much fun we should do it again. We made our own fire and we roasted a dog. Sang out a song and we sat on a log. Yeah man camping is grand. I like to camp all over the land. Way up in the mountains or down in the trees. But let’s wait a while till the next time please.

You quit your part time job, after being depressed Finances were fine we lived with my grandparents Used the extra time to go hiking with our dog Black friday’d some gear and a sort of nice Nikon Oh chasin desperation, seeking hope on the open road Oh chasing revelation, say something Lord for we are bored Hiked a trial run with Trevor out in Zion Got a parking ticket and I had the runs, Camping is your life, now you live in a yurt, I’d love to hear about it if we were on speaking terms Recently in preparation for a hike out on Point Reyes I realized that in the break up I had swapped my gear with yours And in the course of three moves since then I had never checked nor noticed Did you know and maybe want to say but waited out that we were chasing Oh chasin desperation, seeking hope on the open road Oh chasing revelation, give us word Lord for we are bored

Anxious, *Famous Amos offered*, I’m bleeding down my leg but no one sees me (even me), and my body runs its course without my care. American Fork, I feel like a dork in you. The canyon is dark and Parker is on a new quest for the day. I’m not okay we’re not friends anymore. I look to Julianne to soothe me and we park against the lake. I said I’d sleep here but I’m afraid of making a mistake in front of new friends. Will they ever love me? All I see is Trevor. Why does every high school girl I’ve met despise themselves with no exceptions? American Fork, I feel like a dork. I heard the canyon was bright when Kristopher sat with the light in his eyes. I’m not okay he’s not here anymore.

I’d rather watch a movie about camping Than go camping by itself I like the Argentinian cowboy on his horse From the comfort of my living room or from the back porch I once went camping with Rebekah in Wisconsin We drove for 20 hours and didn’t say a word I didn’t feel in love and I had told her so I got out of the car, put on my bag, I was gonna hitchhike back to provo Existential dread And smallness Am I good enough of a lover Have I fucked this up? Rebekah got out of the car, took my bag off my shoulders, She put it back in the trunk. I felt defeated so I got back in. She told me later she was planning to leave as soon as we arrived in Madison She’d book a flight the very next day and be home in Springville with her mom Or maybe to LA to see the coast and spend time with her brother Cause sometimes grieving people need to move to away We endured the drive and I felt sick, so I called my sister, Told her things would probly not work out between Bek and I She said sorry, said she loved me, said we’d we talk when we arrived At 2 am, we shared a bed, and I wept in life Camping in a wooden house I love my sister, she held my head As I blamed the turning earth and god for filling me with dread One day later, we slept in a humid tent and shared breath and warmth I laid awake and wondered where we’d go from here

My Bones 03:30
"Now please hold on When I’m gone I don’t know where I’m going I won’t be long So sing our song And remember a time we were home I hold these notes In the back of my throat For when I come back in some morning I know it’s cold It rattles MY BONES But soon I’ll see you again I can’t really leave Asleep in the trees A fire left alone I won’t make it home"

"All embarrassed Wish I hadn't left home Trapped in Paris Traveling without a phone Found some matchsticks And started a flame In the Parisian countryside Felt to me like a game This man created fire Camping out in the wild No permit on me No French did I speak Or phone did I need To create all this heat Extradited After I got home Back to Paris All in smoke Guilty For the destruction Of the City of Light Ironic name All aflame The city's gone now I am to blame "

Glow More 01:44
"lights where you have been so far the gaps of silence in me slow slower passing the marks we make till the sun’s down things i can’t erase gone now laying on the ground it feels cold now the only beams to see glow more blinking once then twice and i'm gone"

Camping 01:12
"Joe was born to lead Anointed to Provo MTC Found a room, brought TV Somewhere he could show woman the way he leads Woman disbelieve No man of faith could so deceive He is saint, she is she Nothing but child with fever dream We protect our own Even when all his sins are known He's in our camp He pitched a tent Now we're camping!"
