about

"Following what felt like years of putting out quality singles and EPs time after time after time, Austin-based artist Milezo has finished his debut album. Entitled 'Where the Rivers Meet the Dark Sea', it's 9 tracks of delicately constructed, deftly executed pop songs that beautifully combine ambient electronics with subtle guitar work and Miles' slightly nasal but utterly charming vocals - with everything written, performed, recorded, and produced by the man himself. Take that, Mike "As far as I'm aware I'm the only person in the world who does that" Skinner."

Track Name: Rivers
Is there some calling to me,
where the rivers meet the dark sea?
Do I have a calling too?
Or is my calling simply you?

I never knew all my love
I never knew what it was

The sleepy maladjusted,
can't beat whats been digested
No wallow in defeat,
dreams of all those still to meet cause

He never knew all his love
He never knew what it was

You say you want it
You say you need it
You say you'll change it
Well why don't you?
Track Name: Rewind
I don't know what I want
I don't know anything at all
To say you're just ok would be a lie, a really empty lie
I'm on a brand new mission
With zero motivations
And if I find a special something
That would be alright, yeah that would be just fine

Something in yr. eye reflected into mine
So I saw it too wrapped in heat waves of blue
I was much obliged to come and sit inside
In the bathroom barely breathing near the roaches on the ceiling
Fingers under sheets and me with my pants still on
I'm an odd one, always was the odd one...
And this was so very long ago
Why's it still creeping round in my skull looking down the road? I don't know ...

Falling asleep at the controls off whiskey shots and smoke
Is not like me, its just like me
I'm scared of me...go take a walk
You're fearful, hopeful, woeful, barely visible, somehow miserable

And you're stuck in rewind, all of the time....
Track Name: Break the Spell
End of the day, where did it all go?
Hello after party thoughts, why are you so?
Everywhere at once, bounce back and break the spell
Yeah you've got a lot of nerve to act like things aren't well

Believe in...
The morning...
The morning comes around...

I keep my distance, I don't know why
And on the fringes there is one light
I keep the terror that it confines
I'm none existent, if i could just....

Believe in...
The morning...
The morning comes around...
Track Name: Split Skull
Sometimes I cross my heart and hope to die
But every time I do, every time I do
I can't wait to come back again, back into my stronger self
And every time I try, every time I try....

Passing pieces of the day, does he have a savage head?
Every night in bed, every night in bed
Wasting all his good time looking at past good times
And it should be a crime, it should be a crime....

It's the coldest night of the year
You know I need you here...
Track Name: Kid Chants
Recorded in Aarau, Switzerland at Kantonsspital Hospital
Track Name: June Bug
Found a june bug in her pretty hair
Found a june bug in her pretty hair
Found a june bug in her pretty hair
Found a june bug in her pretty hair.....
Track Name: Footprints
The lion tamer is me clutch my saber
It feels like we'll never wake up

Watch. Out.
The sun will come and walk around
I. Wait.
Stuck inside the underground

I don't know whats in me, footprints near chimneys
Inside and outside are all clusters

Watch. Out.
The sun will come and walk around
I. Wait.
Stuck inside the underground

All these people, all these people
If I touch em' are they real?
Or will my hands go through?
All I know is they're pretty good on you

You do what you want to do
You always do...
Track Name: Stitch
Now I just get lost inside the crowd
Inside the kingdom, they want me blind and dumb
I need you, icing cuts with sunshine
I need you, stitching up my lonely

Nobodies holding a gun to our heads
Not grinning, I'm grinding my teeth away
Nobodies holding a gun to our heads
And that only proves us right

Far from the street lights, found the forest floor
And what might have been, it would have changed our worlds ...
I need you, icing cuts with sunshine
I need you, stitching up my lonely

Nobodies holding a gun to our heads
Not grinning, I'm grinding my teeth away
Nobodies holding a gun to our heads
And that only proves us right
Track Name: Cloud Grids
So it's decided, split up divided, my home is a landscape where my frightened forest eyes will wake, up in the cloud grids, strange to the strange kids, oh I watch them trying, with bedroom blues denying the outside...

She is what I need now, with keys on her warm skin, still I'm here in the smokey sunlight, third floor up and nothing feels right, inside the kingdom everyones just anyone, the screens will hollow out my skull so I don't have to think no more

Well everyone in my neighborhood is doing just fine
So if you think that things could change you must have lost your god damn mind
Yeah everyone I ever see is really nice, they're just like me
So if you think that shit could change, well you won't get any help from me

Cause I like my country but I love my money
And you won't get a fucking cent from me.......
