about

Written with the Music Studio iPod app on an IDF base in the Negev desert, Israel. Recorded in a boathouse near Barrie, Ontario. Mixed on Kibbutz Gesher, Northern Israel and Thornhill, Ontario.

The EP was inspired by the loneliness of being a soldier in a strange land and the few connections made there. Aesthetically, it was an attempt to mix the intimacy of Casiotone For The Painfully Alone with the romance of My Bloody Valentine.

I drew the album cover in my notebook one night while we were in the field.

The title is a reference to the מה טבו prayer (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ma_Tovu).

Track Name: Sensitive Soul בשביל הדר
That sensitive soul of yours
Never been touched at all
You said it was hard to breath
Or stop the shaking hands

Places on you I know
Have yet to be kissed
I'm trying to keep myself
From making too many plans
Or designs on you

It's something you don't see much
You're hardly scared at all
Told me "don't make me wait"
Well don't you make me laugh

Childish hands I held
Left lonely for so much time
That's why you grabbed my neck
And put your legs on mine
And you let me know

Trying to catch your breath
The air strangled by your skin
Told me "don't make me wait"
Well don't you make me laugh
And you let me in
Track Name: Home
Tell the clock to rest
Tell the sun it shouldn't set
I came home to sleep
But I don't feel sleepy yet

20 years we've wasted
20 years alone
Pleasures that we tasted
Now they've all moved on
Home

There's a silent sea waiting
In between us now
Try to reach across but I
Just wouldn't know how

20 years of words that
There's been no chance to speak
Feel them in my mouth just
Hanging to my teeth

Been in search of quiet
Been in search of known
Been in search of you and
Been in search of home

20 years we've wasted
20 years alone
Pleasures that we tasted
Now they've all moved on
Home

Track Name: Thoughts
Last night
I laid awake in my bed
Thought, "Where are the girls
That I used to know?"

Lovers
Won't stay young forever
Won't stay the girls that
I used to know

We take time
Time takes more and better
Running in circles
Where does it go?

I won't look
When you're old and weathered
Stay the way that I want to remember

Last night
I laid awake in my bed
Thought, "Where are the girls
That I used to know?"

Lovers
Won't stay young forever
Won't stay the girls that
I want to remember
Track Name: Your Way Out בשביל שהם
If you just don't answer
These weeks come down to nothing
Lost love stories we shared
Thought lips could tell me something
But if that's your way out
It's a sad song that plays us out
If that's your way out...

Remember when you called me
Said to drive down to your city
It was raining that night
But I thought it'd be a pity
If I didn't go out
How would I ever have found out?
If that's your way out...

Was a time you told me
That I made you feel guilty
Did such stupid things you said
But they don't matter to me
But if that's your way out
Then there's not much to talk about
If that's your way out...
