about

Dark Mean Hamilton, Ontario

Unassuming yet intricate acoustic sections with banjo riffs that will make you smile, driving drum patterns that don’t hide behind unnecessary flash, and well-crafted arrangements that are nearly impossible to fault—these are some of the treats you'll find in a Dark Mean record. ... more

Track Name: Samuel The Phoenix
Well are you all they say? 
Wide eyed blue, I'm turning gray
You came on out, made my day

When I've gone too far

In case you've forgotten
I'm gonna let it, I wanna let it all show
I tried a few times, I tried so you'd know
You can't celebrate without your mistakes

I'm fading that's all. I'm fading so slow, with the sun in my lungs
My baby you'll be, my always, one and only

So glad you're missing. And I've gone missing
So glad we're missing across the sea
So I'll tell you what then, when you're needing
See how we made something out of this need. See it grow

I'm fading that's all. I'm fading so slow, with the sun in my lungs
My baby you'll be, my always, one and only


When I've gone too far
Track Name: Albatross
Keep it up, don't stop for me
Hold it up so I can see
You're alright with me

Came away from this, all of this had to be
Came away, but I've been stalking you for too long

What are you here for
Cus I've been here before
Now that you're social
Baby, less is more

Keep it up, don't stop for me
Came away so I can see but 
I'm not waiting, carry on

What are you here for
Cus I've been here before
Now that you're social
Baby, less is more

Haven't stopped
Wandered off
Track Name: High Heaven
You know I'm not telling you anything at all
This is how I listen when my ears are too full
I heard you went missing from your body in your sleep
Well I hope to high heaven life is but a dream

Now I'm waiting in England, with this damp dark beer
Since the last time I saw you, you've disappeared.
Track Name: Last One
Take me back to Mt. Everest
Had a dream that I never left you in thin air - or anywhere
Take me back to Mt. Everest
Did you make it higher than I did? 

Waiting on the last one, holding on too long
You're waiting on the last one, but everyone is gone

Then we wandered off from the rest
And the wind picked up like the cough in my chest
Nobody noticed
And the snow settled in, and the empty bottles of oxygen
You're breath's not where it should have been

Waiting on the last one, holding on too long
You're waiting on the last one, but everyone is gone

Oh my future darlin', don't make sense of it
Go get another one, darlin'
Don't make sense, don't hold out
Go get another one
