If I Run 03:22
Something I recalled It woke me up, and I got stuck Repeating about you I know I can be difficult Meet me in the hall And hook me up With honest love Whatever comes to you I know I can be difficult If I run right in that direction If I run, who is gonna catch me? I feel ten foot tall And hopelessly aware that these Are temporary spells But some would call it therapy Meet me in the hall And all I ask Is that you catch whatever lands on you I know I can be difficult If I run right in that direction If I run, who is gonna catch me? If I run

I want to go that place with you I need to go insane with you (Lost in a minute) I sang the invitation I hung on your reply, your verse (Shame if you wouldn’t) Choose me to go into that place with you As it was getting late, I said “I don’t know how I’m back again” (Lost in a minute) But glancing at my side, I saw A person in euphoria (Shame if you wouldn’t) Choose me to go into that place with you Choose me to go into that place with you

No Justice 03:49
I was in love – didn’t matter Forces at work beyond heart & soul I want to bark, but the collar I want to scream, but your self-control It doesn’t add up, just a minute I’ve never seen a scene quite like this Don’t let the flame lick your belly Its color is strange; it needs to be quenched There’s no justice for the ones who are in love There’s no justice, no You need to breathe, we can beat it Skip out of town and collect our heads It will help to be reminded That we don’t need what we can’t defend
4.
I Know 04:13
I see a silhouette inside It’s got my mind out wandering I want to take a walk by your side And see what we’ve in common After one more year, I’ll have grown into the wall I know, you’re right I ate something strange and I’m feeling very small Just hold me tight I try to keep my blinders on We won’t be the exception It takes a lot of gravity To pull me in that direction
5.
Eye To Eye 03:34
All I want is reciprocation I don’t care how you spend your nights There’s no need for that conversation As long as we see eye to eye I’m tangled up in your hesitation Thrown off by the space you keep I’m all for a little recreation So get out of the back of my mind It doesn’t matter how thick I build it You break through when I turn around And I’m left to deal with the absence I can’t help but be conscious of now Can’t tell you I’m the weaker rival I shouldn’t let my secret out I’ll just hang on to your arrival Isolate my love from my doubt Do you know what I’m always thinking? Which way would it sway your mind? I don’t think that I want an answer It’s enough to be let inside
6.
Get inside, into my house I know that you’ve plenty left to figure out But I am sure Hesitation at the door Don’t leave me with reservations on the floor I need much more Listen to my careful words See through them, and signal to me that you heard What I can’t say Tangled up inside my head I need to shake it loose, try to forget Why you’re away
7.
Up For Grabs 02:56
I know that I'm a pain in the ass But I heard that your heart is up for grabs Your voice is like a special effect I melt every time it tells me "that's what you get" I see you in a carnival light When's the last time we went on a teenage ride A soft current has got hold of my hands They can go anywhere if they move slow like glass Take me don't leave me don't release me
8.
Control 03:04
I don’t care who you’re watching I don’t want to know why you wander away from the edge of my vision Cause it’s all I can do just to keep from being bitten One arm’s length is the measure It helps me feel in control I’ll deny that you’ve gotten as far as my shoulder I am underprepared and unwilling moreover Every time I find that I’m about to lie, and say “I don’t want to feel that” I don’t need superstition I’ve got artifacts of my own That present enough mysteries, I figure Like the one that prevents me welcome enclosure Don’t get caught in my riddles I can handle my end of the mazes that keep me from wandering further I’m more interested in how you’re fitted together Every time I find that I’m about to lie, and say “I don’t want to feel that”
9.
See You 03:50
Go to sleep now, get out of your head If I see it there, then I will take it to your bed Go with me, go with someone who understands I was making peace with all your worries while you slept I got in trouble when left alone Because I didn’t see you Because you were so far away I was unstable, I was ashamed I needed to feel you I needed to see your face Come on up, climb the rungs to where we can speak It’s been several weeks since I’ve felt the ground beneath my feet I know that it can be difficult to hear me But understand I’m listening, just tell me what you need I got in trouble when left alone Because I didn’t see you Because you were so far away I was unstable, I was ashamed I needed to feel you I needed to see your face
10.
Upward Swing 03:21
What if she caught me on an upward swing? How do I measure her effect on me? What if I cycle back to crueler states And wake to find I’m stuck on yesterday? I’ll try to put away my misspent fears I know they’re killing you I know they just get in the way I’ll try to tranquilize and keep it real I’ve got misgivings, but you’re always asking me to stay I spent the evening counting carefully Trivial worries and I went to sleep Oh hallelujah to her morning pose What could there be in her that I can know?

about

The desire to explore other creative processes and solidification of his live band led this collection of songs to be recorded mostly live to tape through fully analog technology at Tiny Telephone in San Francisco. Blending thawed-out '70s tones with sentiments of soul and echoes of modern indie guitar rock, Ferraro's piano and Rhodes provide nearly as much a presence on each track as his own falsetto.

Astronauts, etc.'s debut album, Mind Out Wandering, will be released Sept. 18 on Hit City U.S.A.
