All the kids here have been talking They wanna go down South/to Mexico It's the closest furthest place/escape from what we know They leave behind If he's the motor/and she's the wheels It takes both of them/all four hands to steer If he leaves she/on the road Neither has the ways or means to go They leave behind/all the things/that might have been. This is me/calling you/we are meant to be together I feel free/it's not forever Maybe you could hate me/maybe i could hate you That might make it easy/that might set me free We'd leave behind/all the things that might have been/if we had stayed together All the kids here have been talking They wanna go down South/to Mexico

Let us be lovers, he said, I'll take you to Paris. Let us be lovers, he said, and you shall see Rome from a carriage, like Princess Diana. Let us be lovers, he said, but he didn't mean it. He was always in it to the end. Let's get some clam strips, we'll ride on The Cyclone. Let's get some tall boys, i can drink every ounce of forty in the sun in the morning. Let's go to the freak show - how long can you stand there? Will you still be standing in the end? Let us be lovers, he said, and then...we were. If I wear my mother's white dress, then we can be married at midday and gone by the sunset. And since we are unsure and un-aging We will be together in the end.

What will we do when the water runs out? We'll drink wine all day and be drunk all the time Annie will come, and she say, "What are you doing? What are you doing with your life?" Holed up for days in boat tied to a buoy The phases of the moon have occupied our nights Do you know where you are in the grandeur? Yeah we know where we are in the grander scheme of things floating is like flying/at least we think it is call me a liar if i said we'd been birds floating is like flying/at least we think it is we've never been birds

I lived a year out there in jesusland/it was like death on the installment plan Follow my leader/what might be bothering you You're gonna have to learn to let go and let god The most dangerous thing is happening to me Shut in for days/with nothing to do To pass the time/the pain Pink-spattered snow/I buried it by the front door By the time spring comes nobody will know The most dangerous thing is happening to me here So you got sad/you settled down Amid the birds always meddling/with the bees And you could be happy, you could be blessed You could claim it was your best.

All of the girls in Southern California/they all look the same to me/the way they take for granted/living by the sea They never say goodbye/they say, "Adios, amigos"/by which they mean/"to hell with you" I want to a girl/from Mexico City/someone told me the streets are filled/with a prettier, kinder girl They never say goodbye/they say, "Adios, amigos"/by which they mean/"with God I wish you may go" All of the girls in Southern California/they all look the same to me/the way they take for granted/living by the sea They never say goodbye/they say, "Adios, amigos"

I was gonna start running/I was gonna start starving Instead I have been sitting here/eating my fool heart out Write me when you get there/I wish you the best If you can try not to lie/tell me you don't miss me at all Tell me if you miss me at all If the palm trees start to scare you/if the skyline seems too wide to last 'til morning That's just memory/the night will always pass and leave you Victor on the sand and Mary in your ear/whispering: Don't you fret you're better than them/play them like the fools they are Play them like the fools they are On second thought don't write to me/your pen is much too clever I don't want a second guess/I'm happy if you're far away And lonely If you're far away from me Working nightshifts serving sailors/everybody knows Fools get sick like this/the night air she does it every time The only cure I've heard/is 9 miles every morning There's silence at the bottom of my bottle Tell me if you miss me at all

about

Like, Mountains is a side-project of The Woes' Osei Essed, and the first project with his wife. The recently stripped-down 3- piece has enjoyed playing Upstairs at the Livng Roon, downstairs at Cake Shop and more than a couple street fairs this summer, in addition to The Rock Shop and Sunny's Bar (Red Hook).
They are hard at work on a series of Bandcamp-only mini-albums, and they love you the most.
