about

LAKE Washington

LAKE formed in Olympia, WA, in the summer of 2005. We strive to be real people making real music. Most of our recordings are of people in a room playing music simultaneously, sometimes with lots of fun overdubs. Our live show is generally the band playing music on real instruments and singing into microphones which are amplified through a power amplifier because we are not loud singers ... more

Track Name: Without Devotion
Let me feel it, without devotion
All alone, focusing on the ocean
Something good will happen today

I'm on my knees and my forehead is pressed up
Against some decive I feel like a forcept
And I'll believe without having seen, it's the same

Pressure under, wind above us
Currents below us, wind above us
Track Name: Widower
Today I am lost
Wondering what went wrong
Today I am wandering through the trees
Like the wind

So far gone and forgotten (Who is the Widower?)
I've forgotten the good old days (Who is the Widower?)
And where is the window (Who is the Widower?)
I can crawl through (Who is the Widower?)

You became an old friend
Of used-to-be's, and way-back-whens
And now today I am wandering
Over houses to another shore

So far gone and forgotten (Who is the Widower?)
I've forgotten the good old days (Who is the Widower?)
And where is the moon bow (Who is the Widower?)
Where I can find you, waiting there for me? (Who is the Widower?)

Track Name: Behave
I feel OK on a windy day
It's in the wind that I feel this way
From where you hang lower yourself down
Fear and flight won't turn your life around

And you don't have to do it that way
It's up to you have you behave
And you don't have to see it that way
Ask who you love how to behave
Track Name: Helicopter
He's afraid of his markings
He don't want no possessions
But the ghost still tries to keep his spirit alive
In a chest that stores a heart you'll see
There's no room for bad memory
And so I ask you, is it a shame
Not to know right from wrong?
Jump like a helicopter and look for the children
In the water all those bubbles rising from your nose
Help them stop them no one'll know
This bathing suit's for you my dear
Are you happy that we're finally here?
An early morning at a late funeral
It's an early morning at a late funeral

The children are holding up your arms
To stay afloat in the shallow waters
I'm holding back from helping you
To save myself from the community
Close your eyes and I'll be with you
When you open them again on top of the
Tallest hill in the world
Just upon the outskirts of the town
Together as one we love you
Together as one, little alarm clock!

Early morning at a late funeral

Left all pictures that I took of you
When you weren't watching
Backwards for a moment I thought you left too
Make sure that you're ready for the morning after we are through
I'm sincerely happy for you
On this early morning at a late funeral
Track Name: Mountain
The mountain was on fire
The mountain was on fire
And I came outside to see
And I came outside to see

The fog hung above the sound
The fog hung above the sound
And it took my breath a while
It took my breath a while

The sky was made of gold
The sky was made of gold
And I took the long way home
I took the long way home
Track Name: I Look Up to You
With a sorrow in our hearts we can play
And I look up to you
When we hear different sounds that the heartless do
Wakeful at night looking everywhere for You
Why do I look up to you?
And we hear different sounds than the heartless do
Wakeful at night looking everywhere for You
Why do I look up to you?
Track Name: Ice Cream
When I was four I ran through the door
To get to the ice cream first
But sometimes we stumble in front of everyone

When I was three I thought it was neat
To pick cotton from all the toys
But sometimes we get caught up in thought

I am the child
Fell in the wall
Shorter than the curtains fall
But see I'm standing tall
Track Name: LMJ
The memory of her riding the black horse
Under the pale moon on a black night
During the fight that soon would take her life
And leave me in this empty hall

Where I'm sweeping up the memories that I had of her
She hurt me so much in life I felt used and I suffered in disguise
When the truth came suddenly from my father
The pain to turned to guilt and I wept and wept
Until I felt the memory of her.........
Track Name: Happy Man
It's so hard to live so far
Go home for 2 weeks
And then have to leave
Oh, am I killing them?
Do they resent me?
For being so free
And choosing to leave

Your happy man in a golden mean isn't smiling all the time

I used to drive to stay alive
Until this one day, I saw a trailer
The horses all fell out, all over the freeway
The ground steaming with blood
It was raining and muddy

Your happy man in a golden mean isn't smiling all the time
Track Name: Moving Roads
I felt a pull from inside me, from below
A storm overhead, and it's looming and dead
Follow your heart like a road
Whether it moves too fast or too slow
You can see it's not what you're for
You are after what is before
Track Name: Alibit
All I ever tried to do was fall in love with you
Could you love me too?
I'm not dying
I made up the alibi and gave you things to do
Although things fell through
I'm still trying

Trying to make the mornings full of night
And all the evenings full of light
With all the orbits that just might
Be following you

Everyone sees when I turn to look away
But I don't see any other way
These days I have nothing,
I have nothing left to say
Track Name: Wedding Days
Get away from the water's edge
You're all alone, it's time to pledge your love
So go home where you are from
These are wedding days it's time to renew those vows

Pressure under, wind above us
Currents below us, wind above us
