I want to believe and give comfort to the bereaved You never know do you I want a purpose I want to be in someone's service You never know do you Save yourself for free Fall into the sea Everything's just matter I don't have the proof Had a wrestling match, I don't want to get attached You never know do you Thought I saw a sign or am I only losing my mind You never know do you Save yourself for free Fall into the sea Everything's just matter I don't have the proof

I'm calling you, I'm calling you Hear my echo, hear my echo Did I get through, did I get through Or did you let go, or did you let go? And I'm unsure in the morning If I've made any impression They say you're gone, they say you're gone And nothing's missing, and nothing's missing Well are you here, well are you here I am listening, yea I am listening Lost in clouds and darkness Whisper here in my direction I could be there for you Always said I'm sorry Don't leave me wandering, don't leave me wandering

I am a driver out upon an alien road I follow signs that lead me to a place I do not know The truth will come in hills to climb I take it all in stride For underneath your shadows I have no place to hide. City glows on endless sky to the stranger passing by Caught upon the turning tide Moon hides away far from the sun The evening has succumb to the new day that's been won Then shining rays illuminate the highways Take off to infinite tomorrow.

"Let there be light!" said Edison Let thy wizardry be done Then the blue current swept in And the broomsticks crept alive Smoke upon the sky Incandescent eye Then the wheels began to turn The filament burned So bright we could not see Just where we were heading

There's a look in my eyes I wear a disguise I'm putting on a smile For your enterprise You pull on my hair You step on my toes And I should throw elbows I throw you a rose Oh it goes on the same Circular lane Now it's rain again Now a sunny day So I complain What more could I do I'm not on the offense I'm impaled on a fence Did I mention I had a couple drinks I opened up your book It parted like the Red Sea

In a quiet town Passing as anybody around I'm confused as such You don't wanna get near my touch. There's a bad man inside me I wear a veil to cover my face. I hope it never sees the light of day Let these demons be in peace I hope that I'm not at the whim of fate Well we all end up deceased. I'll slip into the crease Yea, I'll be down around your knees You'll kick me into the dust But I could only do as such.

Stack upon stack Of coats and hats Endless pile of shoes Bodies removed Dark train pulled through Oh what did they do to you An icy chest Your lips held stiff Just a faded glimpse Would leave you limp Is that an act of God Well I'm afraid I'm afraid Of naked pits Of empty skulls Of the skies turned grey With the ones you loved Of starving bones Of breathless showers Of the ones you held Being devoured Still alive What's the matter with you What's the matter with me? Shut my eyes I still see

I'm a mass of desire I cannot escape My heart is an eternal fire Asleep and awake There's the thorn The long night at my back Forward treading upon worn out track The fiery sun is beckoning me Yes it burns at ten million degrees!

Once you had dignity Once you had worth Now you got a lot of gadgets and You think you own the Earth Forget getting old Forgot about death Remember bad memories I have none left Got a copy of the antichrist Sliding on the Bible Smiling all the while Trying to kill and defile Is it all over The conquest won We're going to burn down the sky Then regret what they've done The face of my frustration is morphing everyday Got a million different masks But the stress is all the same If I could jump this track If I could jump this train I would take a leap of faith And have nothing left to blame I want to fix all I want to find a solution My mind is like a factory My thoughts like pollution Deliverance pills In electric wires Let's dig into the garden And devour all desire I don't know where I come from I don't know how I came I thought I had some answers I respond to a name That's my face in the mirror That's a body on a shelf I have a book of questions I'm singing for your help

about

All songs written, performed and home-recorded to Garageband by Jeremy Joseph.

Selected praise for Habitat:

- "An exceptional release from an obviously clever musician...on the whole, nearly perfect..." - Mojophenia

- " Habitat ... finds a lot of tension between heavy thoughts and worldly moments. And [Joseph] can still write a hook, too." - Washington City Paper

- "[Habitat] is cohesive, subtle, intelligent, and full of potential...an album worthy of anybodies time." - DrunkenWerewolf

- [Habitat] is a well put together conglomerate of social criticisms and self-confessions, all to the tune of some wonderfully crafted melodies and sophisticated textures" - AudioSplash
