Names (Patreon single)

by Pocket Vinyl



This song was made as a promise to everyone who supported us on Patreon before June 28 2018.

We promised everyone that we'd have their names in lyrics to a new song we wrote. At first, we thought it would be a cheesy name-game-esque thing just for fun, but as we worked on it, we decided to try to make it more.

This song is more or less a prediction about how people will find love in their lives, or how/where they already have it. Not love as in "romantic love" but as in the kind of love that leads you towards good and ethical decisions in your life. The kind you may see in a stranger, an animal, a pair of flowers, a friend, yourself....the kind that, frankly, is too hard to describe here in words.

This song is very lyric heavy. 46 names of Patreon supporters are included (plus a few extras for various reasons). If you supported us on Patreon, thank you so much. If you'd like to join the fun with the rest of us, we'd love to have you, and perhaps we'll do more fun stuff like this in the future involving everyone.


Aaron you'll see love next time you're on tour
When you help a band turn into something pure
Ana you'll see love next time you are walking
Beside a young child who just started talking

And they bring you back when you're losing your sanity

That someone else did for you for a favor

And how they depend upon you as a leader

When all other options seem to impede

And every note resonates with everything

Between two voices you could never forget

In a mother bird teaching her chick to fly away

To the laugh of a person you love the most

Of yourself when you fail but are glad you tried

In a way that is only described as “freeing”

That can be seen through a lens of grace

Like all of creation is playing a symphony

It's beauty is conveyed because it's erratic

Which attaches to you and becomes a fixture

In a way where you finally understand

Which you and your friends can sing along

Into the scariest parts of your mind

And you'll always find it inside of yourself

It seems far away but is within your reach

You'll get better at it the older you get

As it's light pierces through all that you are

I'm sure you're kids think you're mighty hero

From a person who you know has your back

With Ashley there, you move forward together
Elizabeth you'll find love inside of my heart
Just like I find it within all of your art
I'll give you all the love that I can
To empty myself to be a better man
