about

WATERSTRIDER Oakland, California

Take the train from San Francisco to Oakland. Walk through the parks and by the lake, the places where the turbulence of city life blurs into the serenity of redwood groves and peaceful birdsong. There you will find Waterstrider. Woven through with pop sensibilities, their songs are imbued with a sense of environment, with a weight and a presence that ushers you into the little worlds they create. ... more

Track Name: White Light
Lauded for your bright white light
Pulled it from inside; wide-eyed
You'll find all the answers

Fearless as a young lion
Give me a tall tree to die on
You'll find all the answers

Open your mind

Frightened wings in a dusk of dust
Fountain statues grown from lust
You'll find all the answers

Open your mind
Track Name: Redwood
Driven to a dream, the reckless and obscene
are bombing all the city streets
Voices speak the words, though sightless and unheard
they pull you from the redwood tree

Muscle in the earthquake
Moon make the branches break

In the basement sound, the blood begins to pound
we are chomping at the bit
You are in the leaves, a sunset to receive;
a broken back was all they sent

Muscle in the earthquake
Moon make the branches break

I would be your spine, though I know that I am caving in
Full moon on the rise, thought I might tip into the ocean
Track Name: Calliope
You're a sight for sore eyes
You're a bright red sunrise
You're my one and only
You're a cold Calliope

Give me cover
Give me a last kiss
Take me over,
away from all of this

You give me melody
while the sea is boiling
I give you desire
You consume my fire

Give me cover
Give me a last kiss
Take me over,
away from all of this

Give me cover
Give me a last kiss
Take me over,
away from all of this

You won't hear me now,
but I'll be speaking loud
Track Name: Nowhere Now
You were right:
the city looks brighter from here
I recognize:
like the city, my thoughts were unclear

Fallen down
Keeps me down

Nowhere now
but I’ll come and find you

Years and years
I wait for the kick drum
I felt your fears
but I’ll never leave them

Fallen down
Keeps me down

Nowhere now
but I’ll come and find you
Nowhere now
but I’ll be there for you
I’ll come and find you
I’ll be there for you

Fallen down
Keeps me down

Nowhere now
but I’ll come and find you
Nowhere now
but I’ll be there for you
I’ll come and find you
I’ll be there for you
I’ll come and find you

In the hurricane
of love and hate
I still remain
