about

Recorded live on the alter of an 100+ year-old Church in San Francisco. Every Sunday the pews are pushed up and Bibles are put away and the guitars and microphones are brought out for a few hours and some very tasteful music is played.

lyrics

The California Dream (Isn't What It Seems)

you'll meet a beautiful girl and fall in love
then get crushed and fall apart
you'll see the ocean blue and never want to leave it
and then go broke and drive back home
you'll make new friends and you'll feel so welcome
but when you're down they'll say see you later

so this is what it means to be
alone, surviving up in your tree
far from home, living comfortably
escaping harm, seeking harmony
but you'll
you'll learn fast
cuz it won't
no, it won't last
the california dream
isn't what it seems
it's not what it seems

you'll build up hope and dreams that are way too big
for the room you never leave isn't big enough
you'll forget your name in the hopes of love
until she breaks you and knocks down your wall
you'll run away from impending doom
when the answers are right in front of you

so this is what it means to be
alone, surviving up in your tree
far from home, living comfortably
escaping harm, seeking harmony
but you'll
you'll learn fast
cuz it won't
no, it won't last
the california dream
isn't what it seems
it's not what it seems
