about

Mr. Kind Oakland, California

Since its inaugural release, OK, Mr. Kind has departed from rough-around-the-edges garage folk rock to the dense electronic leanings of their second EP, Mr. Kind. The band was originally formed to perform the recorded solo material of lead singer-songwriter Brian Bergeron, but Wide Awake | Open Eyes represents each band members’ continually expanding involvement in the songwriting process. ... more

Track Name: Maliced Hearts
Verse 1:
I won't disturb you dear when I leave here in the morning
I think it best that I not serve a warning, delay us from admitting just what we did

My head aches as evidence from a night of heavy drinking
Designed to interrupt, distort our thinking, distract from things once felt with young maliced hearts

Verse 2:
The girl I knew back in school she had a different way to get you
In subtlety she found herself a warm ruse enough to make you feel some more alive

When I first became aware of the flash of early interest
The trumpets blared loud enough to deafen, and others seemed extras in a dream

Chorus 1:
I don't know what was done that made you leave
But now we've gone and fucked it up, completely, completely

Verse 3:
When Jack left the party ran to fish his friend out of the river
I stuck around long enough to find a reason to stay as I caught you from afar and all others went dark
The night moved, I found myself in a room had grown more crowded but still unseen by the one that had held my attention
‘Til the cops came to kick, kick, us out into the night

Bridge 1:
The familiar feeling of the tightening of your grip when you're on my mind

Verse 4:
Under cover of darkness I found you, free to forget history, allowed to pretend this was a first meeting, allow ourselves to indulge and put the past in its place

And briefly the girl from back in school returned, the one I knew before the rules the one before the boredom,
The girl who could put all at ease if just given the chance

Chorus 2:
I don’t know what we said that made it bleed
But now we’ve gone and fucked it up, completely

I don’t know what we did that made you leave
I don't know what was done that made you leave
But now we've gone and fucked it up, completely, completely

Bridge 2:
The familiar feeling of the tightening of your grip when you're on my mind
You throw me out of synch, would it be easier to just let it be?
The familiar feeling of the tightening of your grip when you're in my mind

V5:
Now where does this leave us, I don’t want to think myself too hasty
Each moment I feel my feelings ever-changing
I’ve worked too hard getting whole to just give it away

And briefly I’m reminded of trumpets loud enough to deafen
With a stillness found only with divine intervention
It’s the thought that I take with me on my way out the door
Track Name: Patience
Sit upright and breathe. There's always somewhere else to be
Free from time so absently invested and seldom protested
Some sudden space leaves a void for anxiety to creep in

Once it takes it's hard to throw a wrench into the mechanics

Oooh Don't give up. Don't give in, to distractions live your life sleeping in
Let yourself go, trust not knowing. Got to be a patient patient.
Let patience lead you there
At my best, I behold the truth hiding behind the curtain
It doesn't last and I throw myself to ruin by trying to keep it.

It’s not mine. It’s not meant for the keeping

Oooh Don't give up. Don't give in, to distractions live your life sleeping in
Let yourself go, trust not knowing. Got to be a patient patient.
Let patience lead you there
Oooh Don't give up. Don't give in, to distractions Live your life sleeping in

Oooh Don't give up. Don't give in, to distractions Live your life sleeping in

Let yourself go, trust not knowing.
Got to be a patient patient. Let patience lead you there
Track Name: The Best I Can Do (Is Love You)
You don't need to fight back when you're exposed
The damage done is at its worse when you shut down
Honey, are you listening?
Your heart don't need the wall of stone
Honey, are you listening?
You can't get in when you are on your own

I know little about the things you choose to ignore
But I'm sussing them out to show their tenuous hold
Honey, are you listening?
They look so weak in the light
Honey, are you listening?
They won't let go without a fight

Chorus
If you were better off with me leaving
In an instant I'd be gone
But tonight I fear that you should not be alone
If the best I can do is love you
Let you lean to hold you up
Would you let me help you back where you belong

I'm not sure how you got under my skin
But there's one thing I know for certain
There's a warmth that wasn't there before you came
Honey, are you listening I'll take the good with the bad
Honey, are you listening I'll take that which drives you mad

Chorus
Track Name: Don't Be The Last One In
Come out come out where you are where you live in my head
Idle you wait when i need you the least you Appear

Move to the front, don't be the last one in
It'll leave you suffering
Not safe in your own home
When the panic hits
The voices in chorus sing
Leave me alone

Bones, bones, bones, they give me weight and give me shape in my skin
That which troubles me most has no mass has no form but always wins

Move to the front, don't be the last one in
It'll leave you suffering
Not safe in your own home
When the panic hits
The voices in chorus sing
Leave me alone
