about

"Space, Flesh & Woe" explores areas of psychedelia, rock, and pop. Themes prevalent on the album are taken from the last year of my life; living on a boat, expanding my mind, and falling in and out of lovers. I am 26 years old, and this is where I am with my talents.

about

Jim From The Moon Los Angeles, California

At times Jim from the Moon plays acoustic tunes about girls, the devil, and similar distractions. They flow in the vein of Loudon Wainwright III and Neil Young, sung with a voice soaked in years of Irish storytelling. Other times he expels far-out electric rock that is primal and space-ward, with heavy, psychedelic sounds. Both sides are focused, catchy, and ready to be eaten by your ears... ... more

Track Name: New Blues
new blues -

well I came here to fight all these devil's around
leave 'em tongueless, and toothless, and far underground

may the eyes of my God be azure and blue
may the tips of my fingers find oceans in you

well I came here to put all the 'ol dogs down
tell 'em where to go to really know that all I sow is the light of my lies
Track Name: Open Sore
open sore -

I am an open sore these days
lots of open wars these days
well, I'll be dead soon anyways

and all the time, the way I feel about you…

I am a moaning whore these days
a gushing lush of midnight plays
over and over I can't explain
why, with all this flesh I still complain

and often times the way I feel about you
is often tied to how long I'm without you

lucky boy to get a glance at happenstance
how often does she look right through you?

and often times the way I feel about you
is often tied to how long i'm without you
Track Name: March!
march! -

just another piece of mind that wasn't mine
said with my father's eyes
just another missing peace of mind
just another piece of mind that wasn't mine
said with my father's eyes
just a missing peace of mind, ya know?

have the captain act his wage
his cap is off
the furrows in his brow are the same which complicate our own

climb with me, umbilically
there is no space
except for us to grow
tiny specks of light which God did throw

everything's a part of me
my shirt is off and everything's my fault
just a pile of words which makes me cough

won't you just ravage me, savagely?
of all the bleeding coughs...
just a pile of bones will get me off
Track Name: Lover, Do You Love Me?
lover, do you love me? -

lover, do you love me?
at all forever?
or am I just a waste of your time?

darling, would you believe
we're under the same weather?
and hell is just a place in my spine?

babe, if we were older
I'd ask if I could marry you
I'd build a little home in your skies

but, girl you are a tempest
dressed up absolutely
but, girl you are a chink in my time

you say that you love me
but I don't believe you
I tore out my heart
to comfort and feed you
and now...

with a bit of time and a bit of tongue
bit of a twist of your wrist
with a bit of scratch and a bit of pull
in a bit of time you'll be mine

what? wait, what is wrong?
do you wanna talk?
do you wanna eat me alive?

stop, just wait
just wait a minute
is this how we end?

you say that you love me
but I don't believe you
cause I smell a liar
and I don't believe you
and now...

when a bit of teeth bit a bit of skin
a bit of blood on your hands
and a bit of boy, and a bit of friend
a little joke all on me
with a little push off a little ledge
a little sin soon forgotten
Track Name: Jilted Lovers
jilted lovers -

I already love you
we are already there
cause time is such a rambler
we are always everywhere

to drift on the ocean
to live in the sea
I can not misappreciate
the effect it has on me

space, flesh & woe
well I feel so old
space, flesh & woe
well I feel so damned with soul

fashioned of driftwood
land legs are gone
I'm reading too much into
where we really haven't gone

cause this is all about jilted lovers
and this is not about nothin' else
we made war beneath these covers
I need peace with someone else

space, flesh & woe
well I feel so old
space, flesh & woe
well I feel so damned with soul

oh, don't waste me time, my dear
I need it all 'till I am free from here
Track Name: War is to Oil
war is to oil -

war is to oil
what fuck is to fluid
I once gave a damn
you damn right I blew it

I was a creature
in this film feature
and always a sinner
and always a preacher

and now, I can't shake it from my tree

sex is a pistol
to kill politicians
we wring-out our sheets
as bloody petitions

I had my mind blown
a little wide open
and now I am certain
that you are a serpent

and now…

war is to oil
what fuck is to fluent
you weren't so sure
'till we got congruent

we are so bound
by such colorful shackles
lipstick on children
evening news cackles

and now…

war is to oil
and act of contrition
I need no permission
to spit ammunition

I am just here
to make a short story long
war is to oil
what man is to woman

and now…
Track Name: Sometimes
sometimes -

sometimes
I find
sometimes
I lie

sometimes
i find
sometimes
I shine
Track Name: Wand'rin' Eyes
wand'rin' eyes -

wand'rin' eyes…

wand'rin' eyes...

get me in trouble right on the double
I was right...

wand'rin' eyes…

find me new scenes inside of her jeans
I'll be nice...

smilin' thighs…

we have a thing in spite of your ring
I'll be quiet...

mornin' lies…

such remedies fall with such ease
pants on fire…

wand'rin' eyes…

Track Name: In the Light of the Moon
in the light of the Moon -

and I really don't know
why you really did go
baby, but I...
I'm taking it bad
every day I'm so sad
baby, but I...
I read it somewhere
that we shouldn't be scared
cause we are all alone

all alone...

in the light of the moon
we snuck up to your room
heaving chests
holding noise in our throats
while all the world rests

all alone...

and it's really not fair
that you really don't care
maybe tonight...
I can meet you somewhere
and drown in your hair
baby, cause I...
I'm living this life
outside of my home

all alone…
