about

"Sacramento's SARN has an ace debut EP..."
- diymag.com

"The EP is a poignant introduction to SARN's music universe. It’s a refreshing reflection on the song writing trade to see that lyrics are the foundation of his music. This happens less than you think. But perhaps this allows SARN to break free from the scrutiny many artists place their finished songs under, and instead allows the essence and message of the music to thrive. Imperfections are fine and part of the deal, and that’s good. But don’t get me wrong, when you listen to the production, careful consideration has gone into its execution, it's just not over-thought."

Track Name: Snakes & Bones & Cellular Phones
I fell into a hole filled with snakes and bones and cellular phones and I waited, but no one came and I decided to stay
Make it my home and I've been here for days

What have you been up to?
What have you been doing?

Food is scarce and I don't care about taste
Bugs and worms and dead leaves on my plate
I see the sun shine in
I hear the birds singing my name, they said

What have you been up to?
What have you been doing?

I've just been here sitting down, kicking dirt around

In the distance I hear a noise
Swear to hell it sounds like your voice

I fell into a hole filled with snakes and bones and cellular phones and I waited, but no one came and I decided to stay
Make it my home and I've been here for days
Track Name: Glue
Yeah we talked for an hour and a half about the girl in the skin tight pants and that's that and that's what, that's what I like to do

Spend all my time just thinkin of facts that are useless to me but are useful to you and that's that, that's what I like to do

And my head has melted like the glue
All the glue that kept me stuck to you

Took a nap on the railroad track, but then I thought "This is dumb, these rocks hurt my back" and that's that, that's what I like to do

Build a fort in the old oak tree, covered with leaves so no one could see me, that's that, that's what I like to do

And my head has melted like the glue
All the glue that kept me stuck to you

And my head has
And my heart has
And my arms and my legs and I have
I have melted like the glue
Track Name: KIT
When you settle down please think of me
I'll be at your door waiting patiently
The times we had they were all so fun
I was a boy and you were the one

You never got to hear what I wanted to say
The day your father moved your family away
I chased the car and I shouted for you
Until it turned and drove out of view

I sent you letters, everyday for a month
We made a promise, we'd keep in touch
Never heard a word, never heard a word
So I just assumed you were doing good

When you settle down please think of me
I'll be at your door waiting patiently
The times we had they were all so fun
I was a boy and you were the one

Things were kinda hard for a year or two
I'd walk past your house on my way to school
Look at the grass then up to the porch
Imagining that you'd open the door

I sent you letters, everyday for a month
We made a promise, we'd keep in touch
Never heard a word, never heard a word
So I just assumed you were doing good

I nearly laughed when I heard that you were back
I told my friends I'd marry you
And when we met, you introduced me to your kids, your man, and you said "It's good to see that you remember me, after all these years that I've been gone"
That's when I said "Oh, how could I forget, you were the neighbor down the block"
Track Name: Worth Its Weight
You say you keep your heart in your hands
Well then keep it there and I can only hurt you when you spread your fingers thin

Gotta maintain a little control over what you think you know
Gotta maintain a little control
Any love that's worth its weight in gold is worth the wait

Even though my cover's been blown and I've worn my welcome thin
I can tell your feelings for me, well, they haven't really changed

Gotta maintain a little control over what you think you know
Gotta maintain a little control
Any love that's worth its weight in gold is worth the wait

It's been hard enough keeping it under the ceiling
I don't care that much about what they're saying

It's been long enough
These walls are caving in and if this house stays up
It'll be worth the waiting

Gotta maintain a little control over what you think you know
Gotta maintain a little control
Any love that's worth its weight in gold is worth the wait
Track Name: Foreign Feeling
Met a girl who made me want to throw in
all my hopes in to the sea

Close my eyes and wish that when they open
she'd be standing right next to me

Cuz I've been down this road before and I always get lost in the foreign feeling
Cuz I've been standing on the shore just waiting for the waves to form and take me, take me

Run to town to tell my friends I'm anxious
my defenses have abandoned me

Just this once please let it fuckin happen
Let me be charming, act naturally

Cuz I've been down this road before and I always get lost in the foreign feeling
Cuz I've been standing on the shore just waiting for the waves to form and take me
Take me away from here
Track Name: Gravel & Glass
I can't lie again, I confess, I've been drinking
I'm in love with it cuz I'm a mess and it makes me feel less sad than I really am

I've fallen flat on my face and I've been eating gravel and glass
but my hands are bandaged neatly, so, I'll carry on

Who am I to think that habits fade
if the past predicts the future like they say

Who am I to think that I could live
without a little poison in my head

The sun on my skin let's me know the world's still spinning
If I could spin with it, I could live a billion years this way and it'd make no sense

Who am I to think that habits fade
if the past predicts the future like they say

Who am I to think that I could live
without a little poison in my head
