freesoulJAH Ben Montgomery has a talent for writing sneaky pop masterpieces. They creep up on you and you find yourself deeply invested in the song as it comes to a close. For me, this album will forever be associated with living in lockdown during the Covid-19 Pandemic. The somber vibes and vocal delivery bring on introspection and self reflection. Favorite track: Outside The Gates.

I don't wanna get out of here, and it’s crystal clear if I can’t learn from my old mistakes, it’s a sign face, i’m never gonna face the day, I’ve always been raced away i don’t know what is required stare out through terminal wires see if i ever get tired need to be seen or admired i’ll talk when i’m at this stage cause i’ve lost my case i’ll live here accordingly, all the time wait, i’m never gonna make my way to the car i’ve only been going so far i know i’ve made the allusion talking up fire, confusion but no way, neither lie nor temptation no way do i walk to the station

This Is It 02:48
here I was without a photograph what the fuck is going on how could I not overstate my case often never know? and how come I never take my mind to all that auto shine? how could I know? how could I know? how could I know? how could I know? how I could not only take the road it’s always come and go i’ve been everything I want to say any little thing is good this way any little thing any little thing it’s on my mind, it’s on my mind It’s on my mind, it’s on my mind It’s on my mind, it’s on my mind it’s on my mind, it’s on my mind if i want to rock and roll all night

Ohio 03:50
working in that dime store station early in the morning and the light shines on my day-to-day and i never knew the first thing, hanging by the purse strings in a way they’ve heard it all before… if the real stopped in ohio… if the real stopped in ohio… I won’t tell you what I don’t know long as i can follow off on my own and you know I felt no different when they told me one was two and the only thought i had was you if the real stopped in ohio

Drum Friend 03:15
blinded by my enumerated desire to fall and fade back in the night, dime operated searching for far off trains blinded by my misunderstanding the turtle boat comes, i’m stuck on the landing i open my eyes, in my mind i’m the window-ville dresser supplied by the night on my own though i’ve altered the fates i turn my head away was hard to decide, to stay foolishly borne of my intuition surely the sun shines again blinded by my misunderstanding the turtle boat comes, i’m stuck on the landing my mind is the driveway of hope, i’m the oroville letter arrived here by night but i know in my heart it’s too late

what’s the reason? lights flash at me when I’m walking home from my work in the night what do I tell them? they never could teach me the notion the notion that everything’s fine makes no difference makes no difference where did i go wrong i’d gone away cause it’s so long… too early to wait cause i know what is it all for? i went away cause i’m gone for never be seen here no more it’s like i told ya, told ya it’s like i told ya, told ya it started in early may, now it’s all the same it started in a telephone haze, now it’s all new reasons why i want to stay it started in early may, now it’s all the same it started in a telephone haze, now it’s all new reasons why i want to stay what did i tell you standing round here in the moment if i’m lying, i’ll light up again

Harmless 03:51
do I wait? walk away in the rain? another idea stay, hesitate, remain harmless start to fade telephone the number and be right altered state harmless

Word Is Out 02:55
word is out I ain’t talking no more word is out I won’t be there for sure… the photo is supreme, tells me what i need to see suddenly i can see what’s in store word is out and I walk through the door what lies ahead why did i bring a drum? word is out, but i don’t know my lines yet word is out and the timer is set what lies ahead why did i bring a drum?
8.
no where to run no starting gun no near no far no beating heart home from work, i feel the same roll(in) over –– reading all the work out plans what could summon out my rage easy does it with those god damn magazines no high-way signs no neon lights not hard to find if so inclined never new how I would roll never new how i got through to them all fumbling around by the stairs tumble down…in the night no landing’s there outside the gates, outside the gates, ( the security gates )
