"Upon entrance, Mountains by Water Music immediately reveals itself as a soul shaking, desolate memory machine ready to unfold. Highlighting a leading voice that rightfully takes the point on patrol, the album has deep conjuring abilities. Painting a picture with audio patterns that could easily be described as atmospheric and melodic at the same time, Mountains‘ duality, it ability to exist as a transcendental place as well as a tangible, digestible song offers a unique experience. As open as Oberst, Water Music is quite literally delectable on many different introspective pathways. .." @dingusonmusic

Track Name: The Climb
You're killing me
you're killing time
slaying me softly
with your ocean eyes
they're cruel
I'm no Lover
I ain't right
my mind's broken
from your bedroom eyes
they're cool.

You're killing me
you're killing time
saying it softly
with your lying eyes
they're blue
I'm no fighter
I ain't right
my heart's broken
and I'm breathing tight
it's cruel
but I'm like you
I'm no fool.

You're killing me
you're killing time
slaying me softly
with your bedroom eyes
you do
I keep shaking
I ain't right
there's one emotion
flooding me tonight
it's cruel
but I'm like you
I'm no fool.
Track Name: Wayward
There is one thing you should know
it's all about your self control
keep it closer, keep it tight
and you will get back home
get back home to the one thing
you've never noticed

All around you are the faces
of the lonely and cold
you're digging deeper
getting warmer
but you ain't finding gold
and it's not like you want to know
were they once just like you?

But there's one thing you should know
it's all about your self control
keep it closer, keep it tight
and you will get back home
get back home to the one thing
you've never noticed

Feeling lonely, feeling happy
feeling everyone's high
all around you are the places
where love goes to die
and it's not like you want to know
that they were once just like you

But there's one thing you should know
it's all about your self control
keep it closer, keep it tight
and you will get back home
get back home to the one thing
you've never noticed
Track Name: Mountain
Your problems are wider than a country sky
you're breaking the rule that lovers never lie
you're wondering what you ever had in mind
and you smell like poetry
you're a mountain in front of me
tell me why it's you

You shiver like a leaf when you cry
You pray that love will mean I never die
you taste like humility
you're a red light in front of me
tell me why it's you
Track Name: Stalker
Stick with me, stick with me
it's a cold and lonely night out on the streets
but if you stick with me, stick with me
I'll be your man and you can be my make believe.

Drink with me, drink with me
we can relive all our broken memories
drink with me, drink with me
we'll let the wine take all our faded sympathies.

Because the moonlight's still glowing
and it ain't leading me home.

Stand by me, stand by me
it's a cold and lonely night out on the streets
stand by me, stand by me
turn the lights down lover, be my make believe.

Because the moonlight's still glowing
and it ain't leading me home.
Track Name: Run Runner Run
I'm no stranger to familiar
standing downstream from your words
a lonesome valley filled with can you
don't you find it quite absurd
that's I'm still standing in the dirt?

All those times I've seen it in you
holding nothing means I've learned
just how close our own opinion
don't you find it quite absurd
that I'm still standing in the herd?

I'm no stranger to opinion
standing downstream from your hurt
just how close to be familiar
don't you find it quite absurd
that's I'm still standing in the dirt?
Track Name: Eugene's Ghost
Tortured eyes
on a slow train ride
wondering why
it all flies by
see them try
but always pass them by
'cause they're all out to get you
they're all out to get you

Haunted eyes
under a cold sunrise
mourning time
wondering when they'll die
hear them cry
but keep your hands close by
'cause they're all out to get you
they're all out to get you

"I want you to lose..."

Haunted eyes
under a cold sunrise
wondering why
it all flies by
see them try
but always pass them by
'cause they're all out to get you
they're all out to get you
they're all out to get you
they're all out to get you

"I want you to lose..."
Track Name: I forget
Leaves still love you
when they've been falling
chasing dreams that can never become

do you feel braver than an old fashioned soldier
who just killed someone?

I've been trying
to reach out and touch you
but sometimes crying is never enough

I believe I loved you
though you don't remember just what I done

'cause we all fly alone

Leaves still love you
when they've been falling
chasing dreams that can never become

do you feel braver than an old fashioned soldier
who just lost someone?

'cause we all die alone.
Track Name: Mill Valley Riot
Did you pick him up
Did you throw him away
is he a friend of yours
is he CIA?

Are you back in town
do you ever stay
shall I make you come
while you make me wait?

Is it government fuel
that you're knocking down
is it too intense
with me around?

And are you all
right now?

Is that all you want
is it in decay
can you hold on
or will you step away?

I'm back in town
I'm over the load
I'm kicking the fence
I'm stuck to the road

Did you pick me up
just to throw me away
are you a friend of mine
are you CIA?

And are you alright now?
