about

LAKE Olympia, 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: Do You Recall?
DO YOU RECALL?

Do you recall a distant rival?
Do you recall there's no survival?
You walk through the gate to alter your state
But nothing happened
You walk through the door to knock on the floor
But what is missing?

There is a place that you cannot go
There is a place that you do not know
You walk through the door to knock on the floor
but what is missing?
You walk to the gate to alter you state
But nothing happens

Wait for the meaning of each day
Do you recall?
Wait for the meaning of each day
Track Name: Bury the House
BURY THE HOUSE

Bury the house, under the garden
Make an attempt to go outside
Bury the house, under the garden
Bury the house

Parallel lines coming from you and me
Will have to cross each other eventually
Our house is made of wood,
But I don't think that it should
Before it gets any worse
I'm gonna cover that house with dirt
Track Name: Combat Culture
COMBAT CULTURE
Why you wanna combat culture
When every words wrong
How you gonna explain mainstream?
It's not a vulture
Eating up the decay making it a mainstay
Leave the punch for the other lunch

Do you break, do you break?
When you wake?
Do you break, do you break, do you break?

Hold above the common people
the churches steeple
Lifted from the burning pages
the World is real.
When the fallen angel falls upon an angle
Orson Welles in the prison cells

Do you break? When you wake?
Do you break?
Track Name: Composure
COMPOSURE

Avoiding the cause of circumstances lost
Remembering to wait in order to regain

Composure, composure, composure...

There is something unsaid when I am in my head
I am ranting and reeling, but part of me is dead
I am so selfish, and conceited, looking for something--something to please me
But I can't find it--no I can't find it
What I should be sorry for

Composure...
Track Name: Go Back
GO BACK
I wake up in the middle of the night
With a strange feeling, in a strange light
Go down, surrounded by doorways
Who is not missing anymore?

No you walk down the street
See the lamp post light your feet
knock down all of your heros
Who is not the king any more?
We're not the kings anymore

Go back to the sight
Will you?
Go back to the sight
Will you?
Head back to the light
Will you?
Go back to the sight
Track Name: Dog in the Desert
DOG IN THE DESERT

Finding the nearest point to follow
The question in my mind is written in the lines
I want to see it like a path
Illuminated
That has been walked upon by many who have passed

A dog in the desert hears his call
No lacking of forethought,
He knows what he's counting on
He's lost in meditation
Drawing him nearer
But where he's going
He doesn't need a thing

Are you ready?
To be abandoned?
To be lonely?
To be sheltered by the wind?
Track Name: Perfect Fit
PERFECT FIT

What was I missing back when we rubbed shoulders?
That we could be perfect fit?
Was there a lesson hidden under boulders?
Was i expected to lift it?

Too many people lookin' in the window
How can we think anymore
And if the devil is a diligent farmer
He's gonna knock at the door

And on the days I wondered how we'ld get there
I must have felt a kind of bliss
But when we build suspension and it lingers
There could be something to be missed

Your had a vision of a delicate timbre
to math the beauty with suspense
so much that in the days of grandiose thunder
There was no place it could exist

.....Hold Me.....

How could we be a perfect fit?
Track Name: Takin' My Time
TAKIN' MY TIME

When I met you there was something in your aura
that told me I had found a friend
You're the type of girl who'll dip her toes into the water
But you're slow to jump right in
You paint a picture of a life so simple
But somehow I just can't understand
How a woman like you can do the things that you do
And hold me in the palm of your hand

Takin' my time to love you
Walking at a steady pace
Because I'm ready for the time of my life
No one else can take your place

Now you've been calling every once in a while
But I think about you every day
When we get together I just wanna go all the way

Are you ready for the time of your life

Takin' my time to love you
Are you walking at a steady pace
Because I'm ready for the time of my life
No one else can take your place
Track Name: I Wish for You
I WISH FOR YOU

A pocket full of things that I intend to use
I carry with me what I think is true
And do what I intend to do
I promise to
Commiseratively I am obliged to you

And so I wish for you

I wish for you to be your own, I wish for you
I wish that you won't feel alone, I wish for you
On the darkest of your nights, you know, I wish for you
I wish for you to be happy and free

Hang on, hang on, do what you intend to do
I said hang on, hang on, hang on
I said hang on, hang on, do what you intend to do
I said hang on, hang on, hang on

I wish for you to be your own, I wish for you
I wish that you won't feel alone, I wish for you
On the darkest of your nights, you know, I wish for you
I wish for you to be happy and free
Track Name: In the Stubborn Eyes of a Demon
IN THE STUBBORN EYES OF A DEMON

In the stubborn eyes of a demon,
Is there no progress, no chance for peace?
And can something terrible ever be rectified?
I really want to think so

What is nothing? Is it a black hole?
Or can it even exist at all?
Is it a theory, a concept, a figure of speech?
Or is it the substance that makes me?
I really want to believe everything
Track Name: Reconcile
RECONCILE

How do we exist under the sun but not in bliss?
What could have been?
Act on it

Life will be erased
Why aren't we enraged by all of this?
Act on it

How do you reconcile faith with your world view?
How do you reconcile what you believe with what you do?

As long it was planned
I know you'ld stand, so won't you?
Act on it

There's nothing with the world
You can face it
There's nothing wrong with the world
Embrace it
There's nothing wrong with the world

How do you reconcile faith with your world view?
How do you reconcile what you believe with what you do?

Reconcile
