White Light 04:50
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
2.
Redwood 04:23
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
3.
I believe every little piece of me will fall at ease in an ever soundless sea Dust to dust there’s nothing on the surface I dive in and let my vision readjust All the lies we speak All the dreams we seek I can see the wonder underneath The soundless sea will sing it’s song for me Waste this life staring at an empty screen forever dead from another new vaccine All the lies we speak All the dreams we seek
4.
If I feel you pull away I’m gonna try to see your face another day before I die Hear your lips feel your words Passing ships the common curse Home in your love I am To think I’d given up your touch for a song Thought I’d need another love I was wrong Hear your lips feel your words Passing ships will never return Home in your love I am In your love I am home

Just a Taste 04:02
Just a face swallowing the sunlight Just in case you never get to feel right All of the fairytales they tell about our love now This love is turning around Far from the edge now This love is turning around Just a taste of honey from your old life Fill my space, honey, if you don't mind All of the fairytales they tell about our love now This love is turning around Far from the edge now This love is turning around

Calliope 04:21 video
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

New Sun 03:44
Dream easy, my kin voices lost inside the din The feeble begin to mend their hollow lies Open your eyes A new sun rising, it's time to come out of hiding! A new sun rising, it's time for the light! I lust after green, the color of the newborn leaves Don't sit still, won't sit still from all the pain I've seen There will be no more, child A new sun rising, it's time to come out of hiding! A new sun rising, it's time for the light! There will be no more, my love A new sun rising, it's time to come out of hiding! A new sun rising, it's time for the light!

Nowhere Now 05:09
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

Black Blood 03:19
Face up on dry earth too sallow to sing your worth Wonder why we pray to be golden another day Ocean of fire grown for the mother's pyre Mother, your black blood was sold for another sun Dancing 'round the core

about

WATERSTRIDER Oakland, California

The Sublimate EP is out now!

I am so pleased to share this new batch of songs with all of you. With these songs I tried to transform disconnection and despair into feelings of hope and love. They come from a place of deep contemplation, but also a certain satisfaction with where I have washed ashore.

Thanks for listening and supporting my journey.-nate
