Good Sport 01:29
If only we could leave our marks In the hope they greet us in the night On the hollow tree trunks, we climbed To the top of the fences In time, we were brothers
2.
Sprint 07:02
You were on the ground Waiting on Waiting for the round Always off the path Drowning out The weight of the warm sound We were on an airwave Way up Falling on the lions In a daze, we looked out like kings We no longer know Please, tell me how To feel it all, all around Lead me on Almost home (One) I no longer know On our best day, we were brothers All our leaders can't deny Who we are I was on fire And it took a father's leap So afraid to lose my cityscape And I pry, pry, pry and look out to the West
3.
Rest 05:13
Was it silenced by California? The ways you found us The way we hold in Was it over yet? Gotta calm down Walls are thicker And they stand tall Well the protest, we can't afford you Still you find us Still you ease in But you sold us all (all on your own) On all your good lies All you've earned in time You deserve a caliber war Nothing ever followed The calling order In the lazy lob, you longed
4.
Recur 02:25
I was in your heart when I asked for you once Sky was burning red Other lives we had led And this is us Firmly on the ends Waiting on I was in your arc You recurred back to me Run the other ones down It's a lie I won't tell And this is us Caught in a loop We have been dissolved Part of it now Waiting on Waiting on The earliest dawn
5.
Run Long 07:06
I will know what you have done By the time you let go You will try to hold it down Or incite a war You want to fight but you like to lose Run long. Run long. You will see your oldest one Come along and grow up She takes steps in that sun dress And while you wait, she will hum Run long. Run long. Run long. Try to live my life with no paradigms Try to see, my love, you'll be alive On empty By the book Why'd I need to be at fault? Wanna feel like home It was a long time coming I leave wrapped in your arms and you said, "This is how you end and how I begin" What you've gone and done Is light up my life full stop Run long. Run long.

Bliss 05:04
And the hate floats All the way up I will be out of body And it comes slow To lead me I will blur out all the colors See: fallen arrow On the iris dome Flee In the orchard And I call it Home Now down parachute I will lift off Sleep easy And the heat Quick comes back I can almost feel the colors See: fallen arrow On the iris dome Flee In the orchard And I call it Home Bleed Fallout tomorrow Today is won See: fallen arrow On the iris dome Flee In the orchard And I call it Home

Drone 04:20
My only sweep My only vice Run and wake him up For all the tides But you, my love, you could love him When you are feeling like a drone Can you hold on to this? Hold on to the time? A power seize The only one The kind of man you seek is all you know On the waterfall of my life Not a wond, my breed All for one You might run, but you can love him If you are feeling up still In another world, could you let her down? When you are feeling like a drone Can you hold on to this? Hold on to this always? Hold on to the time?
8.
Hollow 05:54
In the reeds that we love We are pulled apart When the bottle's up and down You can meet us at the white oak Oh I can look past And you know you are your father's son When you see right to the other side It never came to a stop Always needed a counterweight We lived on the corner of it All of your reasons to be this one All of your atoms fought Oh I can look past And you know you are your father's son When you're counting down to always one I'll always come to take you home My weaknesses carried on by other ones now A camera lens Leave it for another man Oh I can look past And you know you are your father's son When your eyes are what you always are I'll always come to take you home Keep it here in the hollow

about

Good Sport is the second full-length album under The Air on Earth. The project was kicked off with a single studio session as a wedding gift from a friend and it continued to grow from there, drawing inspiration from the studio space and collaboration with engineer Beau Sorenson. It was recorded over a year-long period both at home and at Tiny Telephone studios in San Francisco.

Primarily constrained to headphones, the album explores synthesizers, electronic percussion, and finely detailed ambient noise in combination with pianos, layered vocals, and found sound.

These songs were shaped by the wonderful people who contributed including engineer/producer Beau Sorenson, an array of talented San Francisco and midwestern musicians, and one dad named Mike.

Good Sport is about life, family and priorities.
