Lyrics by Jacob Koestler


I'm breaking bread on a rural dispute
The plot of land to the tree lines mine
I've got my worries at hand

In the woods they built a stage
With lights on top burning desires
I've got my arms outstretched

And in the wake of a broken town
A dead-end valley between two hills
I've got my back on the floor

But if we move it's a circle around
And back through this barren space
A mirage, a sour dream
I've got my land in the void

It's hardly enough to focus my eyes
And never mind what I can't see


from Winter Garden Photograph, released April 5, 2013




Melk Athens, Ohio

Melk is what you drink by the crick when you warsh your pellows.
It's also what happens when 3 Midwest natives who've been playing music longer than their parents would have probably liked find themselves connecting in the Athens art scene.
Jacob's from Johnstown, PA and takes pictures at OU.
JJ's from Athens and has written more songs than Bob Dylan.
C:/Lee's from Columbus and writes bios.
