about

This album is a loose collection of original songs (except for #8) that attempt to describe in music what is not intellectual and not emotional. I've heard it said that magic is simply science that hasn't been discovered yet. That is an arrogant and foolish view. If magic is anything, it is the internal chaos that we all use in different ways to deflect reality.
That is a long winded approach to the delightfully visceral. Jungle Logic, if you will,.

about

Craig Robertson Boston, Massachusetts

I live in a landscape of ghosts and scientific oddities. Memories surface like flying fish in a glassy ocean. Songwriting for me is like a spiderweb; the strangest things fly into it.

Track Name: Fingernails
FINGERNAILS
ROBERTSON 2016

Fingernails
I been chewing on my fingernails
I've been reading all your old emails
the ones you sent to me
take your time
I know that you took all of mine
I ain't complainin', but now I find
all my time is free.

sea of lies,
I've been swimming in a sea of lies
no matter how hard I try
I can't make them true
let it go
I just can't seem to let it go
so I think that I'll just take it slow
what else can I do?

I don't know why this bothers me
I don't know why I can't sleep
everything in my life seems okay
as long as I don't look too deep


Fingernails
I've been chewin' on my fingernails
I've been reading all your old emails
the ones you sent to me
Track Name: Jungle Logic
JUNGLE LOGIC
(Robertson 2016)

It seems so surreal
when you put it that way
if you can't help me
then stay out of my way

I'm not in any hurry
somebody must win
and hell has no fury
I'll never say I'm sorry again.

I was sorry it happened
I was sorry you cried
I was sorry you misunderstood
I was sorry you lied

chorus

it's just jungle logic
straight from the gut
I'm a grave robber
and you're my king tut

chorus
Track Name: Just Once
JUST ONCE
robertson 2016

Sometimes you come home drunk
you stumble and crash into the wall
sometimes you come home crazy
sometimes you don't come home at all
sometimes you don't come home at all

sometimes you yell and scream and shout
you slam the door on your way out
you always say youre gonna call
sometimes you don't come home at all

I dont really mind when you do all those things
but I'd love to be around, just once, when you spread your wings

sometimes the morning sun comes up
and I find I'm alone in our bed
I'm stuck here with the memories
of all the things that you said

chorus
Track Name: The Girl From The Black Lagoon
THE GIRL FROM THE BLACK LAGOON
(Robertson 2016)

your heart is like the Amazon,
it's dark and overgrown
pools of darkness you swim in
awake and all alone
you just need to lighten up
I've never seen you laugh
the things you say just drift away
and run off down the path

your heart is like the Amazon
the trails go every where
they lead ever deeper
into your tangled hair
deep in pools of darkness
you wait without a sound
for someone to discover you
and turn your life around

I wish that I could cast a net
that would catch you unaware
but you're always on the lookout
for the monsters every where
it's a form of paranoia
you quickly slip away
and your heart is like the Amazon
growing smaller every day.
Track Name: I'll Bet You Didn't Forget
I'LL BET YOU DIDN'T FORGET
(Robertson 16)

It don't matter to me
if you moved to another town
'cause everybody knows
what goes around comes around

and it don't matter to me
if we don't talk anymore
'cause anybody knows
what all that talking is for.

CHORUS
I'll bet you didn't forget
you still get that faraway look in your eyes
maybe you're not an open book
but I can read you.
I'll bet you didn't forget
you still get that faraway look in your eyes
maybe you're not an open book
but I can read you.

It don't make no sense
it's never been the past tense
it's always been here and now
here and now

it never did make sense
I never sat on the fence
I always knew it was you
it was always you

Track Name: Meteor Shower
METEOR SHOWER
(Robertson 2016)

We went out to the desert
to get away from the city lights
slept side by side in a sleeping bag
all night

on the second night you woke me up
and pointed to the sky
look into the dawn of creation's
moving eye

chorus:
and it's coming round again
and it's coming round again
and it's coming round again
the meteor showers

on the third night you woke me up
and pointed to the Big Dipper
showed me how the heart of the universe
is a real night tripper.

chorus
