lyrics

Put on your loneliness
Put on your Sunday best
Dreamer with the checklist
Farewell on your tongue

I’ve gotta use my hands mama
Wasn’t made for this machine
I’ve got something here to offer
Let the howling fill the streets

Don’t know where I’ve been
Don’t know where I’m going
But I found this hunger waiting
Tell you I was made for makin'

I’ve gotta use my hands mama
Wasn’t made to compromise
I’ve got something here to offer
Let the howling drown the lies

Maybe one or two of us?
Keep us quiet until we rust

There’s a bone growing
Where it shouldn’t be
Won’t keep quiet easily

But I won’t run away now

I’ve gotta use my hands mama
Wasn’t made for this machine `
I’ve got something here offer
Let the howling fill the streets

I’ve gotta use my hands mama
Wasn’t made to compromise
I’ve got something here to offer
Let the howling drown the lies

about

EMMA JUNE Amherst, Massachusetts

Emma June sings about the ways in which we build ourselves into empty factories of potential productivity & transform ourselves into lonely machines, the campaign to keep heart, head & hands connected & yes, love lost & won.

Music unfolds into a howl, towers of dreamy harmonies, reverberant instrumentation, while the riverside rings with red-winged blackbirds & takes you away without apology.
