about

World of No Errors is a collection of folk rock songs, tracked in a faux-unplugged-live-in-studio style. The recording was intentionally created with simple arrangements to assemble these songs in a raw, minimally-processed manner, so that we can quickly produce and release these songs.

The songs are old material from the guitarist Ari Koinuma's catalog, chosen for their simplicity and honesty. They were to serve as vehicles for developing our production chops before we tackle our more ambitious material.

Lyrically they are naive and tender, sometimes dreamy and longing. They showcase our folky and sensitive roots, and should appeal to fans of Toad the Wet Sprocket, Death Cab for Cutie, and Jars of Clay.

Track Name: August Moon
In the beginning there was infinite time and infinite space
The earth was without form and void
And the darkness was upon the face of the deep
The spirit of God was moving over the water's face
And heavenly bodies they were flung into the sea
The day and the night and the light and the firmament
They all fell in lines
The lands appeared and the water gathered together
Keeping the rhyme and time

A world without pain
Celestial beings dancing in the rain
Illuminate the haunting mystery
The majesty and the darkness bow on bended knee
To the August moon

I used to think that I know
The way it all eventually should go
But now I find that tightly woven dreams
They tend to unwind
Deliberate the choices we make
The chances we didn’t take
On a midnight walk I raise my palms to you
Give me an answer soon

A world without pain
Celestial beings dancing in the rain
Illuminate the haunting mystery
The majesty and the darkness bow on bended knee
To the August moon
Track Name: Boy Was Waiting
I, I couldn't see you
When my height was way too low
I, I couldn't feel you
When my heart didn't have a soul

Did you see me when I was crying
Did you see me when I was looking, oh looking for you

Down the country road where leaves were dancing
The boy was waiting for the coming
With one hand on his heart and the other to hold his fears
The tears flow where no one can see

There's a fire in a misplaced fireplace
How am I supposed to know?
Let me tell you about my secrets, how can we keep the faith?
And how am I supposed to know that I know?

Did you see me when I was crying
Is that why your song came through to me

Down the country road where leaves were dancing
The boy was waiting for the coming
With one hand on his heart and the other to hold his fears
The tears flow where no one can see

Down the country road where leaves were dancing
I was waiting for your coming
With one hand on my heart, and the other to hold my fears

Down the country road where leaves were dancing
I was waiting for your coming, your coming home
With one hand on my heart and the other to hold my fears
Oh I'm so glad to find me in you
Track Name: Ice Burns
Looking at my ice burns
Try hard to feel the pain
A black dot on a thousand screens
So white and plain
And pale and so weightless
Am I?

Locked away from the boundless sky
I long to feel
And I hurt to breathe
Once more

Shallow and so dry
My stream’s slow death
Call me and let me hear me cry
Like a new-born’s breath
Like a beam through a cloud
Am I so afraid?

Locked away from the boundless sky
I long to feel
And I hurt to be
With you

la...
Track Name: Dark Room
I see you in the dark room, painting your own mirror
I see me in the dim light in the world of no errors
Sometimes you feel the need
Come talk to me
Come talk to me

Talk to the shadow over me

I see you in the water, wondering why you can’t walk on it
All alone in the dark room, you can’t see when you see it
All my nights, all my love, all my drowning seeds
Come talk to me
Come talk to me

Talk to the shadow over me

And I will never be the same
And I will never be the same

I see you with the flowers – you touch, but no feel
I see me in the dark room on the way to the seal
Then you run, you run from me
Come talk to me
Come talk to me

Talk to the shadow over me
Track Name: Solar Ascent
Cameroon
No way to freeze frame your cartoon
Too many lines clatter the tune
I’ve forgotten how your arms keep me warm
In your endless dune

Kangaroo
Blow up then polish your kazoo
I’m way out of line from your tattoo
Please show me how to slow me down
From this fake rescue
Miscue

You look it up online and believe
I took away the hands to receive

Bamboo
I wish you never withdrew
You’re not alone to want to undo
But when you find your last glue melt away
I’ll still be with you
