about

"This is my first proper full length LP under the name The Lake at Night. Recorded mostly in two days at the end of January 2017. Some of the songs are old, some of the songs are brand new. Many of them are recorded in only a couple takes with a buzzing, yet still reliable, acoustic guitar and the occasional drums. A few tracks are electric guitar focused. A couple tracks have random noise for no apparent reason. Most of these songs are about death in one form or another. It just kind of happened that way. And of course, all of them are suitably lo-fi. Thanks for checking it out."

Track Name: And Everything Under the Sun Will Sleep at Last
Say I will
Know I won't
Forgetting everything
That I know

Think about
How things were
Know that I don't know
Much for sure

But there are stars
Beyond the clouds
Shining on every
Bleak and rotting house

And everything
Under the sun
Will fall asleep
At last
Track Name: No Dawn
No stars
No night

No stars
No night

Sing your song
Oh lack of dawn
Track Name: Death in the Rain
Wind blows past my window
Rain falls on the ground
Covering everything
And everyone you meet

Stay a while
No rush to leave
At all

Streetlights turn on
And illuminate the sky
Brighten up the clouds
Warm me from the inside out

Can't fall asleep
Watch the rain
Turn to dust

The sky opens up
And out comes a light
Beckoning me
"Be still, and rise"

Sky turns black
Can't find my
home

Don't want to leave
But I don't want to stay
Darkness falls
Death is in the rain

Out of time
Out of mind
But I must leave
Track Name: Two Trees
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Bleak House
The place I live
In the quiet night
A bleak, bleak house
In the pale, pale moonlight

Wish I could tell you
Everything I know

And I'm the only one
Who knows of this place
My house in the woods
Where my own thoughts I face

Wish you truly
Knew who I am
Track Name: Praise
Look to the sky
I see you there
When I look away
I feel your stare

Yet sing His praise
Yet sing His praise
Yet sing His praise
Yet sing His praise

And sing His praise
And sing His praise
And sing His praise
And sing His praise

Death takes quick
All he desires
So lock all the doors
And tap all the wires

Yet sing His praise
Yet sing His praise
Yet sing His praise
Yet sing His praise

And sing His praise
And sing His praise
And sing His praise
And sing His praise

Sing his praise
Sing his praise
Sing his praise
Sing his praise
Track Name: Death in the Fog
Little one
Don't fret
Just yet
There's time for that
Later on
Later on

As time goes on
A heaviness
Will overcome
And everyone
You used to love
Will leave

Don't worry yet
Cause you're still young
Just hold on
Just hold on
Track Name: What a Glorious Day
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Emptiness
I don't feel a thing
I just want to sleep
I promise I'm okay

And so I promise
That I'm no good
For you
