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: Mr. Kind, Tektite - Out Of Time
Where's the love song?
To set us free
Too many people down
Everything turning the wrong way around
And I don't know what love will be
But if we start dreaming now
Lord knows we'll never leave the clouds

And you've been so busy lately
that you haven't found the time
To open up your mind
And watch the world spinning gently out of time

Countdown, final seconds its time to reckon
with what you been expectin' but evadin'
anticipatin', waitin', drainin' away the remains of the day-
watchin as your world turns a colder shade of grey
what's old is in the way
of expressin' in essence
the remembrance of things present
even if they're unpleasant
the lesson that we stressin involves your investment
in the effort to restore this planet to its prime
and do it now cause you're runnin' out of time
cause you're runnin out of chances
chances vanish as the second hand advances
toward an outcome
that's unavoidable without some
commitment to the cause
there's no pressing "pause" once the blush has left the rose
and the doors close...
where the time goes, nobody knows, nobody knows

And you've been so busy lately
that you haven't found the time
To open up your mind
And watch the world spinning gently out of time

Feel the sunshine on your face
It's in a computer now
Gone to the future, way out in space

And you've been so busy lately
that you haven't found the time
To open up your mind
And watch the world spinning gently out of time

Tell me I'm not dreaming but are we out of time?
Are we out of time

Out of time
Out of time
Out of time
Out of time
Track Name: Mr. Kind, Picture Atlantic - You've Got Yr. Cherry Bomb
Life can be so fair
Let it go on and on
I can push for good
You got that cherry bomb
Blow out that cherry bomb for me
We lost it long ago
You and me

Now you know your way back from the spirit far
Brush your teeth for bed
Blow out that cherry bomb
Blow out that cherry bomb for me
You got to know it's on your sleeve
Know it's on your sleeve
Know it's on your sleeve (come on)

It was the longest day that I had ever known
I watched you start that drive alone
Blow out that cherry bomb for me
It's gonna burn right up your sleeve
Burn right up your sleeve

So there you go again
Out in your dressing gown
Get yourself to bed
Blow out that cherry bomb

Oh, life can be so fair
Let it go on and on
I could pay to have all your cherry bomb
Oh, life can be so fair
Let it go on and on
I could pay to have all your cherry bomb
Track Name: Mr. Kind & holychild - Clark Gable
I was waiting for a cross-town train in the London underground when it struck me
That I've been waiting since birth to find a love that would look and sound like a movie
So I changed my plans I rented a camera and a van and then I called you
"I need you to pretend that we are in love again" and you agreed to

I want so badly to believe that "there is truth, that love is real"
And I want life in every word to the extent that it's absurd

I greased the lens and framed the shot using a friend as my stand-in
The script it called for rain but it was clear that day so we faked it
The marker snapped and I yelled "quiet on the set" and then called "action!"
And I kissed you in a style that Clark Gable would have admired (I thought it classic)

I want so badly to believe that "there is truth, that love is real"
And I want life in every word to the extent that it's absurd

I know you're wise beyond your years, but do you ever get the fear
That your perfect verse is just a lie you tell yourself to help you get by?
