about

Dream Sick was formed in November of 2010 at the end of fall, into the beginning of winter, and a lot of the material for the album was written during this period. Jess Matsen (Vocals, Guitar) was working graveyard shifts at the haunted Hotel Congress as a deskman, and hardly saw the sun. Listening to Dream Sick you can hear these dark undertones in almost every song, there is longing for sunlight, for better days.

Track Name: Shine On Shine
A positive mind can be hard to find
Deep inside everything you can’t define
Pushing through the cracks little bits of light
That attract the dust, and scare the mice

I’ll be away and you’ll be trying to find
Me lost in the caroline

Called to find
Shine on Shine
A frame of mind
Shine on Shine
A looking glass
Shine on Shine
A part that’s passed
Shine on Shine

I’ll be alone, and I’ll stop throwing stones
Just to find a quiet place of mind
I’ll be there, beneath the stairs
Pushing off all the way to the caroline

Called to find
Shine on Shine
A frame of mind
Shine on Shine
A looking glass
Shine on Shine
A part that’s passed
Shine on Shine

It takes a lot to make amends
Track Name: Caravel
Opens up like an empty heart
To let in the light from the outer parts
Dust comes through a cracked window
And it covers all the things that you used to know

I’m just me and I know you are
Skin touch skin and it’s pulled apart
Shelf stands tall with it’s four small legs
And it holds the books that you’ve already read

Slowly take a look around
Breeze blows soft and it calms you down
I wade through to the caravel
Ship sails with out a warning bell

All my dreams just sit in one place
Like an old folks home that’s run out of space
Release a note from a cold tight string
While the clock strikes twelve and the bells do ring
I planned to be a better man
But I can’t find the warmth of the calm white land

Slowly take a look around
Breeze blows soft and it calms you down
I wade through to the caravel
Ship sails with out a warning bell
Track Name: Know Your Heart
And I know its hard
Just to stick around
And wait it out for the good parts

And even though
The sun tries to shine while the moon tries to glow

Know your heart,
Keeps the kings and queens apart
It’s all the same
Whether or not you take the blame

And I know you’re happy,
When you’re smiling at me
Dancing round the room with a broom in your hand

And it’s an endless river,
When we’re kids together
Now the stream dried up and gone to shit like the others anyway


Know your heart,
Keeps the kings and queens apart
It’s all the same
Whether or not you take the blame

And it comes belated
Oh you call the queen,
I’ll be out there for anyone or anything
Track Name: Control the Weather
All you know
All that matters
It’s alright
You’ve never felt better

Light the way
A short shot commuter
All alone
But you don’t feel like a rebel

Open eyes,
Asleep so you trick the cameras
I hope you get the prize
That you think you’ve won

I’m the one you call your own
Standing sweet at the microphone
I try to lie but I can’t
My guts they twist me up like the vines on a plant

Only, only one,
Only, only one,
Only, only one,

I know you hold
The key to the weather
If it lasts
It’s here for now and ever

I know it’s nice,
I know you have a weakness
You’re the only one,
The only, only one,


I’m the one you call your own
Standing sweet at the microphone
I try to lie but I can’t
My guts they twist me up like the vines on a plant

Only, only one,
Only, only one,
Only, only one,
Track Name: Cyclical Games
I watch while they play, cyclical games
Passing around the real use of my name
Feeling for a second that you catch to release
Easy it comes and easy it leaves

I’ll be you’re meter if you be my maid
Put in your money and get for what you paid
I’ll ask you a question like what is your name
I shouldn’t have to but I’d like to explain

Over flow the thoughts that are inside my head

And you know that I’ve know that we’ve always know the grass is greener on the other side but that wall which you’re trying to climb is far too high

I can’t control the ways of my brain
If you ask me a question like “what is your pain?”
Put me to rest and catch your own breath
I can’t control what has already left

I’ll be your animal if you’ll be my cage
Lock me up tight and quell all my rage
Push off the dock, out to the sea
Take on the loss without the leaves

Over flow the thoughts that are inside my head

And you know that I’ve known that we’ve always known the grass is greener on the other side but that wall which you’re trying to climb is far too high
Track Name: Hold Its Place
It’s a short little step
You can’t forget
From the start to the finish
Hold your place

On the run the jury’s late
You might get away
It’s a strange and awful taste
To each his own it makes
The only one that has to wait
Is the one who goes in haste
Grab the keys you're out the door
It’s just like before
Everyone knows you bend a page
To hold its place

Come along and let me take
You on this journey away
We’ll find the dead in everyone’s wake
You know I hold a place

In your heart and in your waste
My hands will grip to taste
I feel your bones in every step
I know you won’t forget

My breath is there along with voice
I’ll give you half a choice
Hold it long and hands away
I’ll give you what you make

Hold it down in the night when you got no place to go or fight

And it’s alright
Yeah it’s alright
Track Name: Waste Time
I don’t want to waste your time little sister
I don’t want to waste your time
It’s another thing if a cold hearts wasted
Your purity unrefined

Keep your innocence like a lost locked castle
Secret and hard to find

Wait, it’s already over
Can’t, say my love goodbye

I don’t want to kill your mind that you’ve made up
I don’t want to kill your mind
It’s another thing if an old ones wasted
You’re smart so refined
I keep on eating the lines that you feed me
I don’t want to waste your time

All I ever wanted was a time with you
All I ever wanted was the time

It’s a windows view from the strangest places
To leave and let them stay behind
A world that grows fast stays complicated
Lately I can’t seem to unwind

It’s another form of the way we measure
It’s another form of time

All I ever wanted was a time with you
All I ever wanted was the time
Track Name: Lost Margaritas
Been round cause you know it’s the sound
It’s like a menial man and I’m shocked
Everybody knows what you found is a mean old man in a crown
Though the King and the Queen will dance while the peasants eat the bread from their big ol’ hands
You know, there’s not a chance of getting old lets do it again.


Buy and they sell some more
You crash through the backdoor you know
You get what you’re paid for
When it’s worth much more
Everyone knows that there’s an awe filled coast
Everyone you know can’t get close
Sick of everyone who knows why we came
So we walked out into the pouring rain

And the king and the queen do their little dance
While all us peasants just sit in, in the hands
Of a man who takes a plan
Turn’s it upside down and fucks it up again
And we know a ruse so I’m going in
Get inspired and do it again ah.


Watching out til you explode
You’ve got the highs and the low
I know you know why
Everyone knows why
You open my heart and open again
You open my heart and wait again
You open my heart and wait again
I’ll wait and wait again
I’ll wait and wait again
I’ll wait and wait again
I’ll wait
Track Name: Standing All Alone
Made me feel
Like a meaningless man
So I gave it to junk for jesus
I don’t have any room for it to sit like a plant

Camera pans
With an out of focused lens
To see the view unseen
Like the precision of a wise old man

I’m hunting for
An ordinary mind
Lonely on the outside
I tell you ‘I know, gonna do just fine.’

Bottle it up,
Let the current take you along
Out here on the outside
Go wherever, wherever you like

Standing all alone
She’s standing all alone
Arms are crossed like the queen she’s thrown
Doesn’t know what he did
He doesn’t know what he did
Holds her close like a sweet little kid

He doesn’t know how to act doesn’t know where to roam
Holds her close so sweet so known
Doesn’t know where to run he doesn’t know where to hide
Keeps his thoughts and his fears inside


Alone.
Track Name: Long John
Long John, hang on
The dresser by my bed
It’s almost winter
I can feel it in my head
Time to clean the mess I made
Time to see those sad holidays

I know it’s fine
Just wasting time

It’s all a line
We’re stuck behind

Try not to feel
Too bad about

The winter comes
And rushes out

Long John, hang on
My tired boney legs
It’s almost winter
I can feel it in them

I know it’s fine
Just wasting time

It’s all a line
We’re stuck behind

Try not to feel
Too bad about

The winter comes
And rushes out
Track Name: Who You Are
I know where you are
Some, somewhere so far
To reach, gonna need a time machine
Hard, harder than it may seem

Wait, You paved the road to get me here
So far, through all my little fits and fears
I know, we used to smile so much more
I see, it gets a little worse each day for me

I know all your secrets
The one, the one that you keep deep in
Your stomach, your stomachs like a pit
With all the weight how can you lift it?

Wait, you paved the road to get me here,
So far, through all my little fits and fears
You know, whenever something tries to shine
It tends to glow, tiny little specks of light that grow.

You go to the wise and you tell them your lies and they’ll turn you around and open your eyes to the reasons

I know you get down when the weather shifts and the sun don't shine as much as it did and you’re freezing

You pick pocket cash from the people who pass but it doesn’t change the matter of the fact or the way that you’re feeling

Oh the change is so slow
But then it’s there and gone
Before you even know
