to tell the truth, I'm all out of proof it's up to you to believe me that was then, that was my friend though acquainted too briefly in some respect, if we were suspect those suspicions weren't groundless after shows, we'd drown our sorrows whichever ones were not drowned yet Jay never felt more alive than riding shotgun in my green five too long now since I heard from Jay I hope he found love I hope he's okay and that was that, I'd call him right back usually on the same day on a whim, I said to him 's'why they call it the game, Jay Jay never felt more alive than riding shotgun in my green five too long now since I heard from Jay I hope he found love I hope he's okay Jay never felt more alive than riding shotgun in my green five too long now since I heard from Jay I hope he found love I hope he's okay

the honey, the power, the light they all blind me leave no stone unturned, you’ll still never find me the rock that I hide in will never crack open but sharpen your chisel if you think I’m joking I cannot be swayed and I will not be quiet tell the fat cats and bigwigs to go on a diet they’re taking up space that has better uses so let’s jump the tracks and unhitch their cabooses they’re making it clear, they don’t get my vibe so publish solutions and I will subscribe and contribute page after page of my theories which I will type out ‘til my fingers grow weary my arms they are shaking right up to my neck I was a good job paid off with bad checks and counterfeit cash and fake IOUs and phony sunsets in fraudulent hues they’ll distract me, I know, and I’ll pay the fee and I’ll borrow from those a lot younger than me the kids they did not want to grow old and stupid but that’s what they got for ignoring Cupid his arrows went flying, he shot at them all but his aim was so poor, he punctured the wall well, what happened? I’ll tell you - the brain killed the heart And soulless solutions were passed off as art they’re churning out robots and marching machines who’ll go and write stories for march magazines with pages paid off by corporate sponsors who came in like champions and ended up monsters when angels and guardians finally desert me the cops and the crooks will team up just to hurt me I cannot be swayed to a life of frustration of punching in walls when I’d rather punch nations to never stop fighting means not knowing victory so give me blank books to fill up with history there’s more to belief than just spouting assumptions and wait for the big foot to descend and crush them I’m just a lone bottle afloat with the notion that there’s some meaning in this bottle ocean my tide will come in if you’ll hear it knocking above all the roar of your meaningless talking attempts to invent a whole new way to fight will fall to the honey and power and light

your new opponent leaves no air to breathe you should just accept you're cursed, then get in the hearse and leave not how you planned it not to suggest you planned it's what nobody predicted back when you were in demand make no mistake, yeah, believe me or don't but I have gone through what you're going through your golden moment punctured fast and sunk your ambition's got your ethics knocked unconscious in the trunk how can you stand it you can't believe a word your corrupt new course of action letting no lie go unheard

Bucket 02:50
I left Louisiana in a bucket I went back to Louisiana in another bucket I saw you today in the morning and that's where I found my love so the space is filled and pails provide the power to hold it all inside and give that ground a pretty resting place for that dear flower she's the most beautiful blossom that I've found well I hold you in my heart, oh darling, nightly with a love that beats and blows, my body's bold so when things get all a-shiver and your heart begins to quiver send it straight to me and let me cure that cold

Zzzzz 01:49
well, buddy, it's bedtime, you need to close those eyes get to counting sheep or butterflies at the end of a big day everybody needs a rest don't raise a fuss or protest pretty soon you'll be sleeping then the morning will come along that's how linear time works, buddy though you're certain that is wrong good night and sleep tight and all the other sweet cliches I, myself, could sleep for days pretty soon we'll be sleeping then the morning will come along that's how linear time works, buddy though you're certain that is wrong well, buddy, it's bedtime, you need to close those eyes we need peace and quiet, and sleep qualifies

about

At the end of August, 2019, Golden Shoulders recorded two new songs, new versions of two old songs, and a new version of a previously-unreleased, very old song, in two different houses.

Adam Kline wrote all these songs (Bucket was co-written by Kyle Field), and played them with his friends Jonathan, Barry, and David.

Adam sang and played acoustic guitar. Jonathan Hansard played banjo, sang, and played percussion. Barry Anderson played pedal steel. David Nicholson played the drums.

David's drums were recorded by Adam Boucher at Thunder Castle in Grass Valley. Everything else was recorded, and all of it was mixed, by Jef Lewis at the Boom-Boom Room in Nevada City.
