about

I threw this album together in the summer of 2013 just before I hit the road for a lil tour. In 40 days, I played 30 shows, in 7 states. It felt incredible. The only thing I wanted was to keep on going. This is music I played on that trip.

Special Thanks to my family, the city of Portland and all the people who live there, and to every person who doesn't have a home. These songs are for you.

about

Whim Grace Portland, Oregon

Whim channels far away souls and fallen stars with her unusual chord progressions, prophetic lyrics, and warm voice. Salvatore Manalo's timeless guitar licks, Evan Knapp's grooving bass, and Danny Frye's driving rhythm fill out the sound. They are able to capture all the magic on the anticipated new album Black Holes and Unicorns. Time travelers don't need much, just black holes and unicorns. ... more

Track Name: Stranger
He's a hard laboring stranger
Unaware of the danger
As he works himself down to the bone
He wades in the water
Prays for his unborn daughter
In the crest of every breaking wave

Won't you come rescue him
He's waiting for his life to begin
Grant him a new skin
So he can make it to the change

She's an unemployed sister
Dependent on her Mr.
To get her through each waking day
She's got no gold in her pocket
No family picture in the locket
That she wears around her slender neck

Won't you come rescue her
Give her what every woman deserves
She's on her final shaky nerve
Waiting for the change

Oh the change the change the change it's a coming...

I'm just a traveler on the river
Just a traveler on the river
Waiting for a boat to come
I'm a hopeless believer
A lover and a dreamer
Waiting for change to come

Won't you come sail with me
Ride the under belly of what life can be
On this current of pure ecstasy
As we wait on the change

Oh the change the change the change it's a coming...

I'm just a traveler on the river
Just a traveler on the river
Waiting for change to come
Track Name: Space Explorer
I'm no space explorer
I'm no earth adventurer
Yet we go
Fly...
Into Space

From my heavenly perch
I watched him die
He had been bleeding
All through the night
The earth spun
And the planets crashed
But his soul never looked back

It just flew...
To the moon...

All you want
Is to feel the rush
Of the rocket ships
As they take off
But I want nothing more
Than to touch down
And Bury my beating heart in the groung
Yet we fly...
Into space

I'm no space explorer
I'm no earth adventurer
Yet we go
Fly...
We go fly..
We go flying...
To the stars
Track Name: GunPOWder
There's a smoking gun
Bit a hole into my world
There's a smoking gun
lying on the kitchen table

And I lean on the trigger...
And the hole it gets bigger

I'm bleeding out on the street corner
Sitting at the bottom of the social order
Watch the world pass me by
I'm left to die

And I lean on the trigger...
And the hole it gets bigger...

Revolution isn't a short story
Years of frustration
Moments of glory
Building pressure with time
Until the crowds arise

And they lean on the trigger...
Boom Bang Boom Bang CRASH!!
Boom Bang Boom Bang CRASH!!
And the old falls apart

Bless those with GunPOWder
Bless those with GunPOWder
Bless those like me
With GunPOWder hearts
Track Name: India
I got no string
I got no heart
I'm falling apart as the world goes around
I lost my head
I lost my mind
Losing sight as I'm falling down

There aint no rest for the weary
There's no land of milk and honey
There's no sugar at the end of the spoon
There's just me and you
We traverse past the end of existence
Fighting always for the resistance
But we're cold and lost
And don't know if we'll survive
Oh this turbulent life

She hung her head
No words were said
As the silence hung in the empty space
He sat down
And looked around
Hoping an answer would fall from Grace

But there aint no rest for the weary
There's no land of milk and honey
There's no sugar at the end of the spoon
There's just me and you
We traverse past the end of existence
Fighting always for the resistance
But we're cold and lost
And don't know if we'll survive
Oh this turbulent life

They walked on
Bled till dawn
Their souls as weary as the holes in their shoes
He took her hand
And she grinned
For there is nothing more they could do

For there aint no rest for the weary
There's no land of milk and honey
There's no sugar at the end of the spoon
There's just me and you
We sailed past the end of existence
Fighting always for the resistance
and if we did some good along the way
only God can say

For there aint no rest for the weary
There aint no land of milk and honey
There aint no sugar at the end of the spoon
But at least
There was me and you
Track Name: Soggy Cigarette
Sometimes life is like a soggy cigarette
It's full of poison
And tastes like regret
But it sure feels good going down

Sometimes the world is spinning so fast
You can't seem to get a break
Or make anything good last
But I'll remember
I'll remember you

It's all waiting for you
Just open up your mind
It's all waiting for you
You're part of the grand design
It's all waiting for you
Like the monsters under your bed
It's all waiting for you
Get into your heart and out of your head

Sometimes words just aren't enough
They get stuck in the cracks
That shit piles up
It's confusing
Sometimes dreams just let you down
All those damn expectations
As your head gets turned around
But don't get lost now

It's all waiting for you
Just open up your mind
It's all waiting for you
You're part of the grand design
It's all waiting for you
Like the monsters under your bed
It's all waiting for you
Get into your heart and out of your head
Track Name: Re-Birthday
You slipped a star into my pocket
And I strapped myself to a rocket ship
And I flew away...

But only for a day

I blew out all the candles
And I made a great big wish
And I flew away...

It was my birthday

Thought I'd break into a million pieces
From all the pressure building up inside
So I looked for a place to put it
I tried my best to hide
So I flew away...

Never to be heard from
Track Name: New Sex
Sun Sun Sun
Warming my skin
Slow slow slow
That's how it begins
Honey honey
Honey on your mouth
Feelings I can't speak aloud

Heat heat heat
Between my thighs
Pleading
As the temperature rises
I tried so hard to fight it

Tried my best to be free
But baby
You got to
Me

Brush brush brush
My fears away
Kiss Me
The do it again
Please
Chase chase
Chase my tears with your touch
Vulnerable isn't a place I visit much

Tried my best to be free
But baby
You got to
Me

I tried my best to fight it
I tried not to give in
But you're far better at cards
And I don't want to battle
Don't want to go to war
Let's abandon our egos
And stop keeping score

You you you
Are the one that I want
Soft
Soft is my heart now
Let let
Let yourself go
I promise
To take it slowly

Tried my best to be free
But baby
You got to
Me

Tried my best to be free
But love love
Love
Got
To
Me
Track Name: Fallin'
He whispers
In my ear drum
Soft and warm
I
reach for the sky now
Feel the wind rush
When there's no storm

And I...
I'm falling slowly
Slowly
In love
With you
And I...
I'm falling slowly
And from this height
Only slow will do...

The leaves fall down
But I
I stand up tall
Red isn't a color
It's a reason to not try
At all

And I...
I'm falling slowly
Slowly
In love
With you
And I...
I'm falling slowly
And only your love will do
Track Name: Kaleidoscope
There's a Kaleidoscope
Underneath your pillow
Twist and turn
Change your stars
There's a sun that burns
For every almost tomorrow
The one you can't see is ours

Breathe in
Hold me between your fingers like a cigarette
Breath out
The taste of your lips I won't forget
Take it deep
And when you breathe
Think of me

Twist and turn
The water is unkind
You're a victim of the tide
Washed up on shore
Your dreams just drift away
But with each chase of the hourglass
So begins a new day

Breathe in
Hold me between your fingers like a cigarette
Breath out
The taste of your lips I won't forget
Take it deep
And when you breathe
Think of me

I've been waiting a thousand life times
For this moment to arrive
Finally our planets have alligned
And we can just
Be

Breathe in
Breathe out again
Take it deep
And you breathe
Think of me
