about

The Earthly Frames Maryland

Gabriel Walsh plays experimental rock music as The Earthly Frames. Walsh's earlier recording project was called Your Team Ring and he released music under this moniker from 1995-2005.
With the Earthly Frames, the high-concept, psychedelia has carried over from Your Team Ring but the lo-fi, whimsical folk have given way to synths and loops.

Track Name: Pagans
On an auto-pilot astral plane full of smugglers who release the strain of time.
An ownership of sight and sound, drowning beside the box you weighted down.
All the relics from another place traded to merchants to give up your space for time.
Reversal of an outbound sort and constellations that the scopes ignore in.

You'll be knifed and stabbed.

A haggard watcher in a gentle place, where pricks and pagans fall and grab new shapes in light.

Those anchors drag the river clean, a privy palace where the boats convene, reveal.

You'll be chased a while. Right now.

You'll be knifed and stabbed. You'll be chased a while, alright.
Track Name: The Old Revolution
I finally broke into the prison,
I found my place in the chain.
Even damnation is poisoned with rainbows,
all the brave young men
they're waiting now to see a signal
which some killer will be lighting for pay.
Into this furnace I ask you now to venture,
you whom I cannot betray.

I fought in the old revolution
on the side of the ghost and the King.
Of course I was very young
and I thought that we were winning;
I can't pretend I still feel very much like singing
as they carry the bodies away.

Into this furnace I ask you now to venture...

Lately you've started to stutter
as though you had nothing to say.
To all of my architects let me be traitor.
Now let me say I myself gave the order
to sleep and to search and to destroy.

Into this furnace I ask you now to venture...
Track Name: Program
my arms are wrapped in cotton
and you know i can’t pick up anything
news program station manager
abundant light one thousand burning white dots
he pulls her hair like heaven’s strings unwinding

see the course unwinding
obstruction
i can’t stand my surprise
my untied shoelace
run: mysticism [mysterious]
run: nine colors
Track Name: Everybody Wants to Rule the World
Welcome to your life
There's no turning back
Even while we sleep
We will find You acting on your best behavior
Turn your back on mother nature
Everybody wants to rule the world

It's my own desire
It's my own remorse
Help me to decide
Help me make the most Of freedom and of pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world

There's a room where the light won't find you
Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down
When they do, I'll be right behind you
So glad we've almost made it
So sad they had to fade it
Everybody wants to rule the world

I can't stand this indecision
Married with a lack of vision
Everybody wants to rule the world

Say that you'll never, never, never, need it
One headline, why believe it?
Everybody wants to rule the world

All for freedom and for pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world
