about

Everything that's going to happen is going to happen. Cats will catch mice. Trees will grow tall. Songs will float in over the lake and haunt the ones who hear them til they're sung into microphones and squeezed through wires.

MOON LAKE leaves behind the grimy garage for a dusty, moonlit cabin on the water. After a year of songwriting on the lake, Heavy Duty Super Ego was joined by producer Eamonn Vaughan who disassembled his recording studio, The Lion's Den, and re-assembled it inside the cabin to capture an authentic recording of an authentic experience.

Track Name: Cowboy Chapel
I've always something to say
you've never given me my way
well if she don't wanna know forget her
after all you said to make it better

I'm taking my time when I'm setting up
you don't give a damn for this that much
well if she don't wanna know forget her
after all you said to make it better

and as far as I can see
it was right in front of me
it was all that I could take in, I guess
it was right in front of me
and as far as I can see, I guess

hell, I don't like being alone sometimes
I get bored so I throw you the line
and if all else fails and I lose my mind
I get bored so I give you my time
hell, I don't like being alone sometimes
I get bored so I throw you the line
la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, laaaaaa...
Track Name: Thank You, Kindly
when you feel yourself tangled up
and you unravel like a ball of yarn
sometimes I feel like forgetting
you feel it release and it takes you off

see the light wash over the colors
takes you off and makes you feel like nothing
with your feet planted on the ground
and you see yourself orbit all around the sun

I open my arms for anyone
I open my mind for anyone
I open my heart for anyone
and I open my home for anyone

I believe 'cause I've seen it happen

I watch the world fade away with the sun
no more light and that's fine, it's fine
a cool earth wraps me up folds me over
I let the tide drag me out into the sun

and you find yourself sleeping on the ground
you're all alone no one to leave you out
and you find yourself beating up your head
you're all alone no one to leave you out

with your feet planted on the ground
and you see yourself orbit around
I release myself and I lose control

I open my arms for anyone
I open my mind for anyone
I open my heart for anyone
I open my home for anyone

I believe 'cause I've seen it happen
and I've seen it so I have to believe it
yes I believe that you've lost your welcome
and I've seen it 'cause I made it happen
Track Name: Eva Bakes a Cake
I can hold my breath
I can hold my breath for an hour or two
'cause it keeps me subdued
in the morning I rise
with the evening I'm smiling

I take a small one
you take whatever that you like
I've only got some
so you can have some
once I breathe again
after an hour or two
I take it easy
I take it easier for you

I can hold my breath
I can hold my breath for an hour or two
once I breathe again
I make it obvious for you
I take it easy
I take it easier for you

I take it easier for you
Track Name: Capricorn
can't get my eyes to dry
I take a nap when I get high
I never seem to try
I love to play but hate to pay the rent

all day we walk about
I just want to live a good life
you stay out much too late
I never see your face in the light of day

I wrote this one for you
I can't tell you
you talk and talk about it
all I hear is ringing in my ears
ringing in my ears

don't get why my mouth is dry
I keep smoking all the time
I love you all tonight
you've given me my wine
now I am alive

I wrote this one for you
I can't tell you
you talk and talk about it
all I hear is ringing in my ears
ringing in my ears
ringing in my ears
ringing in my ears

all i hear is ringing in my ears
Track Name: Keep the Dawn Away
snowy caps on the house call for the sun
the heat is part of the affair
it gives way to melting and dripping
cold, cold drops drip
and when the sun leaves for an evening
cold drops freeze to each other leaving

a solid transparent form waiting for the next affair to come

oh, how we wait for you, love
oh, how we long for you, love
it takes so long to say
it takes so long to say and it always does
it always does
it always does

when the jealous clouds cover you up with spite
do you ask for the sun then
or do you chant for the moon to never die?

yea, yeah we keep the dawn away
please moon, stay and never go away
keep the dawn away
please, moon, stay and never go away
keep the dawn away
please, moon, stay and never go away

don't go away
don't go away
don't go away

sooner or later the affair begins
you are burning with desire
desire to live and move again
but you chant, you chant
loud and clear you ahhh ahhh ooo ooo

keep the dawn away
please, moon, stay and never go away
keep the dawn away
please, moon, stay and never go away
keep the dawn away
please, moon, stay and never go away

yeah, yeah we keep the dawn away
please, moon, stay and never go away
keep the dawn away
please, moon, stay and never go away
keep the dawn away
Track Name: Ohmazing Grace
when I created the earth
I was king and you, my queen
but my mind can't think
think so big
I'll wear a wig

I never grow old
I keep down the frown

I show 'em teeth, I show 'em teeth
I give 'em hell, I give 'em hell

a cold wind blows
a big door closed
I get on the track
my sweet heart attack

I never grow old
I keep down the frown

I show 'em teeth, I show 'em teeth
I give 'em hell, I give 'em hell

I show 'em teeth, I show 'em teeth
I give 'em hell, I give 'em hell
Track Name: Moon Lake
my day goes by through the corner of my eye
I was in my worst mood to be amused
under the sky, if the moon is right
and the circle is tall and bright
the circle gives me might

a new haze grows from underneath your crown
all you need is someone to bring you down
I was enthused
it felt like music
without a guitar
we imagined and we saw

fall in love and fall apart
if we trust than that's enough
there's only one of each of us
and time is short, so make it work

a new haze grows from underneath your crown
all you need is someone to bring you down
I was enthused
it felt like music
without a guitar
we imagined and we saw

fall in love and fall apart
if we trust than that's enough
there's only one of each of us
and time is short, so make it work

maybe someday I'll apologize
maybe one day you will realize
weeks have gone by when we never tried
yet we never try
Track Name: Motion Sickness
motion sickness and the holidays
I'm waiting for the change
Track Name: Ghetto Millionaire
I wanna buy me a shotgun
to hang above my bed
and chase the hell-raisers from the gates of town
to keep my baby safe

I wanna find me a river
where I can float right down
and when you are out on the weekend
I'll be floating 'round

you can't react
just like something that you want to hide

I wanna buy me a rowboat
where I can level out
when you are down and you're feeling so blue
there I can figure out

I wanna find me an ocean
where I can set my sail
when you are down and you're feeling so blue
there I can figure out

you can't react
just like something that you want to hide

you can go fuck yourself (go fuck yourself)

I fucked up your bicycle
it seemed sorta mean
you can't catch my number now
I blow off some steam

and after all...
Track Name: I Remember Seeing Instead of Having Seen
I close my eyes
I shut my ears
that's when she appears
that's when she appears

I was not myself
I was not myself
I was not myself, my love

I've waited too long
and I've been all alone

I've never seen you before

what a good day...
