about

Parson Jones

The air is sunny.French label Underdog sends this nonchalant find from California
on a flying hammock: a hip-pop duo that evokes the elasticity and melodic malice of
Day One, but without those big black clouds that darken the Bristol sky. Here, it's happening
around a barbeque instead of a station kabab, flowing with the naked torso and the beat to
the air. Sunny air:Make & Model smells sunscreen

Track Name: Clear As Day
Suddenly it seems
Everything is self contained
So easily explained
Once you have all the answers

There’s no questions
Left in your mind
Eventually you find
What it is you’ve been after

All this time
Your whole life

You’ve been diggin in
Sticking it out
Put together something
That could turn it around
Cuttin your teeth
Tryin to gain some ground
When all is said and done
Don’t let me let you down

Cause I am never gonna leave you
Not after all of the things we’ve been through
I can see the devils in the details
Clear as day the seashore full of seashells
Clear as day, here and now

Bettin it all
Sellin it off
Taking the risk
No matter the cost
Doublin down
On the longest shot
You might not remember
But I never forgot

What’s gone missin
You never really know what the fix is

Gradually the seams
Are pulled apart by every string
Become a part of the everything
Once you have all the answers
There’s no questions
Left in your mind
Eventually you find
What it is you’ve been after

All this time
Your whole life

Dig all day
I dig all day
All day i dig

Dig all day
I dig all day
All day I’ll dig
Track Name: Ready To Go
I’ve got a feeling in my belly
Tells me something might be going on
And i can’t be certain what it could be
But I’m sure i’ll know before too long

Fell asleep at the wheel while i was driving
And all I can say
Is that I’m lucky to be alive
And I’m ready to go
Ready to go
Ready to go if it’s my time

You already know
You already know
Where you can go when you look to find them

Cause if you really want to know
What’s goin on inside a person
Then you may just have to open them slow
And if it tears you both to pieces
All those beasts that you had feast with
Well at least you never let it show
Track Name: Shut In
You’ve got me locking all my doors up
Nailin down every one of my windows
More and more feeling like a shut in
Everything’s closed

Can’t get nothin now
Ain’t nothin open
Everything’s closed
Can’t get nothin now
Ain’t nothin open
Everyone knows

You better build a bigger basement
To house these problems we’ve been faced with
Developed tastes for the essentials
And basic needs

No food on the shelves
Got mouths to feed
Belly cut wide open
Then left to bleed out

Thousand year storms are at your doorstep
Change what you knew of all your landscapes
Only hits home when it’s your home state
No escape

Got left on a roof
Tryin to get some help
Can’t wave em down
There ain’t no one else

The keepsakes and belongings worth saving
They’re only gonna weigh you down
I know you used to think they’re amazing
But there’s no way that they can save you now

Feelin undercut
Slipped through your hands
For what you got
Get what you can
Get over it
Can’t make it fit
We ain’t over it just yet

Feelin overwhelmed
Fell far behind
Made to break
Built by design
We’ll pull you in
When it’s happenin
It ain’t happenin just yet
Track Name: Make And Model
Don't you know you're my make and model
My only problem
Pieces of my engine block have all been auctioned
Never been stopped in my tracks so often
Living this close to free
You were made for me, yeah
And if we take the lead
You'd be mine already now


I had you from the get down
What was yours was always ours
The roads that we travel now
They're not always paved but sure we are

Don't you know you're my make and model
My only problem
Pieces of my broken heart have all been optioned
Never been stopped in my tracks so often
Living this close to free
You were made for me, yeah
And if we take the lead
You'd be mine already now

You know what this reminds me of
The future that is still to come
Memories we’re takin
Over solid ground that's breakin
When the truth is that it might be now
It’s only since you asked me how
Could've told me when i first came down
From above what could be lost or found
By the truth before it's passed around
Track Name: Dead To Rights
Dead to rights
By your side
We’ll undo
What’s untrue

Left alive
Fire burns wide
We’ll undo
What’s untrue

Don’t let me break your stride
Act as if you might die

A field of men
A house of wives
What will it take
Once we divide

Follow me
To the end
Where there will be
No enemies or friends

The tide is high
The ships are out
Now’s the time to take
That old flag down
Track Name: On One
When you're beside me
Does it reside in you as well
Tell me you feel it when i'm not around
And when I am
It's only stronger
I know that i could stand my ground

As long as you're with me
All of it we can't miss
Been a while since i've felt the truth
You're my evidence when there's no proof
There's nothing that i would not do

For you and I to become one
You and I are we

On your own, who are you
Where you think you're going
How is it that you'll get there

It was quite a nefarious plot
Leaving you shaken and shocked
Tell me you're ready to talk
More than you're used to
Knowing you're normally not
Formally ordered to stop
Given whatever you've got
More than you're used

Talkin now more than we're used to
But are we really saying something
If it amounts to nothing

On your own, who are you
Where you think you're going
How is it that you'll get there

Each time that i tell myself
This will be the last then i'm done
One more than i'm gone
I'm one on

Try to tear myself away
From all these distractions that come
Off on a good run
I'm on one
Track Name: Know Motive
Let me tell you about the first time
I laid eyes on you
I didn't know what I was seeing
But you saw me through
Now I know just what exactly
It is I had viewed
It's true
You're lit up like such
You're always warm to the touch

Let me tell you about the last time
I basked in your warmth
There's a magnified attraction
A showing of nature's force

When I'm headed your direction
There's no way to fall of course
Or come up short
Star from the north
Has returned to the source

Had you heard about the first time?
Let me tell you about the last time

I wanna know you from the inside out
Eyes are a window to the soul
What's your mouth?
I wanna speak the words
You've been spellin it out
Time and again never one too many
Not anybody you do the chosen few and far between
Already go
Steady flow so you already know that
We gon' put in on you
Much as you can handle
Burnin both ends of the candle
Till the speakers, subs, and amps blow

I wanna know you from the inside out
Eyes are a window to the soul
What's your mouth?
I wanna taste the words you been talkin about
Time and again ever one too many
Track Name: End Credits
My darkest hour
Turned into light of day
So you know that you can’t hold back
When I come your way
I’ve gone too far
At least as some would say
Always been a slow exchange
Heightened the stakes get raised
With a quickened pace no escape
Properly balanced counterweight

Next attempt we won’t miss
One amongst many of the first to exist
Born at the source
Such a force to be reckoned with
Turned into brand new surroundings
Set out on a course that’s fixed
Trajectory respectively just had to be this
Naturally the path of action actually lives
Passionlessness will be held accountable

Wanted it all, wanted it all
Got it and forgot what i ever wanted with it
In the first place
So we let it evolve
Check for a pulse
Handed it over to former owners
If you let me i would fall into you

You always knew what would be wanted
Something brand new and unexpected
You played it publicly so soft
Then were surprised by
The effect things had on people around here
When they found out

You always knew what would be wanted
Something brand new and unexpected
You played it publicly so soft
Then taken back by
The effect things had on people round here
When they found out
Track Name: Ghost Town
I want you for myself

When you're gone who will miss you?
What will be said about us?
Why should it even matter
Where I am going to?

They do a dance in this far off ghost town
That nobody where I'm from I know knows now
And anytime I seen it it's been slowed down
This dance from a far off ghost town

We're dancin in this far off ghost town
Nobody where I'm from I know knows now
And anytime I seen it it's been slowed down
Out of focus in this far off ghost town

I want you for myself
And if I can't have you
You'll be had by no one else
Track Name: Human Mistakes
Choices you’ve been makin
Better pump the brakes
Havin to correct all your human mistakes
Rates like these we won’t last very long
You’re tellin me
What will you own?
How much we owe

Feelin all is lost
Just tryin to make it right
It can’t all be explained
Or maybe it might
Trust is something we build over time
You’re tellin me
We’re the first of our kind
Nearin the end of the line

No shade for cover
We’ll all be burned alive
Another shelf breaks free
Into the sea it slides
All earth’s temperatures
Are on the rise
Doesn’t mean that things aren’t there
(Just) cause you close your eyes

Don’t close your eyes

Many waters
Fillin from
The rivers and lakes
Taken to and traded
On the human exchange
Grace is something we’ve lacked all along
Naturally,
Within the family tree
We’ll be the last you see

Many waters
Fill into the
Rivers and lakes
Overflown
Thrown about the human exchange
What a business
We’ve got into knowin’ that
I’ll know you by sound

Many waters
Traveling the vast expanse
Always hotter
So much of it’s been left up to chance
To each the other
As long as we last
I’ll know you by sound

Once we’ve all gone underground
