This is the first thing This is the first thing you will know This is the first thing This is the first thing you will know I love you This is the next thing This is the next thing you will know This is the next thing (number two) This is the next thing you will know I love you Bright bright my loving light i’ll be your sand and your satellite Flooding light at midnight Right through your line of sight This is the last thing This is the last thing you will know This is the last thing (mark it down) This is the last thing you will know I love you

I cannot hide so I’ll Take it in stride This loneliness Loneliness I never knew such a Sweet love as you my Loneliness Loneliness you followed me downtown Wearing your old wedding gown Set up camp outside my door and stared at me, glared at me You’re so damn quiet But somehow I don’t buy it this loneliness, loneliness Your heart is full but it Ain’t got no pull on this Loneliness, loneliness You’re a novel miles thick And it’s making you quite sick but you’re stuck under this brick do something, say something! o solo mio Its time you knew that I Made room for you My loneliness, loneliness I built a house for you A golden palace for your Loneliness, loneliness With a garden dense and wild For someone’s neglected child Naked and reviled Talk to me, talk to me

All Lies 03:02 video
This is not a cloudy day Those aren’t fields and that’s not hay Got no dark wild thoughts Inside my head Got no pillow to lay down on No sheets upon my bed Got no place I’m dreaming of Just these three and a half walls And the people that I love But I’m not here And you’re not there In the middle of the night When it all comes down to bear And my arms are fast asleep And I can’t feel my feet And my heart is beating fast And can someone tell me how long will it last? These aren’t eyes and thats not hair You’re not lying next to me It’s only air I’ve been told I shouldn’t breathe But I’m breathing anyway And my marrow’s on my sleeve This is not a cloudy day This is not a cloudy day This is not a cloudy day This is not a cloudy day

all i see are your fingerprints on the wind all i see are your bootprints on the sand all i taste is the pvc in the sip sip sip all i hear is the melting drip drip drip is there any way that we can be alone me and the stars? is there any way that we can be alone me and the stars? all i feel is your fingertips on the switch all i smell is the oil pooling in the ditch all i feel is this number counting me down inching up on the transom watching me drown is there any way that we can be alone me and the stars? is there any way that we can be alone me and the stars?

I’ve seen the mountains Under the ocean surrounded by a fog and a storm approaching I’ve seen the planets Fly out of orbit Colliding in the skies And now I’ll be scarred for life am I now scarred for life Are we all scarred for life scars you for life I saw your light on You stayed up reading You stayed awake until your eyes were bleeding Ate all the pain that was in the world and It never was enough and now you are scarred for life am I now scarred for life Are we all scarred for life scars you for life So you live with it Carry it with you You don’t leave it behind And sometimes it lifts you Your skin will harden Sometimes it itches

you and i drank spun gold you and i drank spun gold you and i swam 10 leagues you and i smoked dull weeds you and i breathed one name you and i breathed one name we were left alone we were left alone on the edge of finding out you and i passed bad checks you and i forged contracts you and i grew glass eyes you and i grew glass eyes we were left alone we were left alone on the edge of finding out we were left alone we were left alone on the edge of finding out woo woo woo

Paleflower 03:36
you can see it all in good time bring your little friend i don’t mind you just keep on blurring those lines you can feel the mean in the night charring every pale flower in sight using your invisible light i’ll breach your sea wall i live to breath your ocean swallow your waterfall i’ll breach your sea wall remember how this whole thing began? you were the invisible man sleeping in your fleet wind sedan do a little victimless crime sing your little dirge i don't mind you just keep on learning your lines i’ll breach your sea wall i live to breath your ocean swallow your waterfall i’ll breach your sea wall
10.
why are the school lights on Why is this place called the ranch Intention is everything It is the root and the branch there’s a hollowed out world I’m allowed to see Everything plays out in front of me Tiny actors and sets wee transactions and bets People meeting and falling In and out of small love A shrimpy 2AM quarrel tiny separate bedrooms one inch breakfasts and dinners Micro lottery winners undersize saints and sinners minor worlds inside worlds Oceans hiding in oceans Solar systems in soup bowls People meeting and falling In and out of small love People meeting and falling In and out of small love Tiny stars are all falling Tiny stars are all falling Tiny stars are all falling Tiny stars are all falling Oh yeah
11.
I’m sick and tired You fill our lives With hate and lies You’re so unreal And yet you feel You own the truth You don’t know life You don’t know love You live in death You don’t know how to close your eyes And sit under a big tree I’m sending my Forever vines To wrap around Your fascist neck I’m sending my Forever vines To hold you down I’m sending my Forever vines To trap your words Inside your throat I’m sending my Forever vines To hold you down I’m sending my Forever vines To lock you down

about

On February 19, 2021, Philip B. Price (frontman and songwriter for acclaimed chamber-pop band Winterpills) released his highly anticipated new solo album, Oceans Hiding In Oceans. Price's 2019 solo album Bone Almanac was described by PopMatters as "another masterclass in songwriting and performance." and "enveloping and poetic" by Paste Magazine.

Written and recorded at home during the pandemic, Oceans Hiding In Oceans is a kaleidoscope of moods, shapes and sounds from Price's own personal bunker. “I won’t lie, it was a rough time. This was an album of dire necessity.”

Price writes from within the labyrinth of a mind in near mid-breakdown, and yet the music veers dizzily from optimistic and meticulously crafted Magnetic Fields-like electro-pop ("This is the Last Time”), to the Dolly Parton-esque ("Loneliness"), to the Lennon-like ("Little Bell"), to swirling Slowdive-style shoegaze ("Forever Vines"). He played every instrument. “I don’t think I’ve ever made a more ‘indoorsy’ album, so to speak. It was freeing, in a way, to just live inside my computer inside my little studio inside my little house inside my little head and find my way to whatever musical ocean crashes around inside me, which is of course inside yet another ocean - I guess this is a quantum physics album, without knowing much about quantum physics.”
