about

B.R. Mount Portland, Oregon

With an old soul, and a unique and real approach to songwriting and story-telling, B.R. Mount's upcoming release, Slowin' Down Time is loosely a coming-of-age narrative with a dynamic and laid back folkadelic twinge that finds beauty and hope in this seemingly two-sided world filled with fear, anxiety, and doubt at every turn. ... more

Track Name: Mountains
The bird's song is lost on me
The bird's song is lost on me

Towers fall,
Mountains rise

I heard the cold coyote call
I heard the cold coyote call
Through the wind of the Wyoming fall
Through the wind of the Wyoming fall

Towers fall
Mountains rise
Where's the harmony in these skies?
Where's the harmony in these times?
Where's the harmony in my mind?

I can see through the shallow creek
Where ya comin' from?
Where do you lead?
Tell me I am not alone,
Shallow creek.

Come down from your tower now,
Come down
Will the sea ever cross the sand?
Come down from your tower now,
Come down
Lookin' down at all the hungry people,
Stacks of food around you..
Track Name: Waiting for the Sun
Pack up.
Move out with nothing
Start building, building the soil

Cut down
Waiting for the sun now
Cross eyed and tongue tied
Waiting for the sun now - will it ever come out?

Half drunk.
How high is too high?
Closing my mind's eye
To keep up with the time

Cut down
Waiting for the sun now
Cross eyed and tongue tied
Waiting for the sun now

I always seem to wander off the trail
Caught in the thicket and in mud
But I know, I'm not alone
No.
I'm not alone.

Space is such a relative concept.
Are we separate if we're go in' through the same shit?
No.
We're not alone.
You're not alone.

The mountain always looks much different
Go in' down then we you climbed up it.
No.
We're not the same,
But,
We are a chain...
Track Name: Current Now
Gunna run to the woods,
I forgot that I could
Get away from all the madness
I can hear the trees are breathin'
And the water's too cold for my feet

Heard the news and the violence
In a crowd full of pushin'
Very few makin' efforts
To look beyond their own noses
So I'll find no trace of human life

Oh the snow
Is in the river now
So be carful
If the current now

So ya wanna go floatin'
Down another lazy river
Well, did you think of all the tapids
That you're gunna leave your children?
Did you teach them how to ride?

Oh the snow
Is in the river now
So be careful
Of the current now

Break it down now
To the level of Neanderthals
Another round of pass the bottle
Let the fire feed the soul

Oh the snow
Is in the river now
So be careful
Of the current now.
Track Name: Spring
I see in your eyes
The coming of the spring
Don't have to disguise anything from you, darling
Even when I do you see me through

When I got you
It's all I need
Don't need a thing
When you're here with me, darling

I wanna bring light
When the sunshine hides from you
And I can't believe why
You'd wanna stay here with me, darling

When I got you
It's all I need
Don't need a thing
When you're here with me
Darling, you got me
And I got you
That's all I need...
Track Name: I Can't Wait for Patience
I spent five years inside the fog
Gettin' by and givin' in
It's time I make a difference
I saw the dull reflection of what I thought
And what I was
The shadow of the light
Maybe my imagination's wrong
Maybe I'm just singin' outta luck,
but my friends I'll sing until the end

And I'm seein' now
The the wind has blown me away
And I'm hangin' out
But I can't get you to stay

When you only read part of the page
And hang it in your window frame
It's no wonder why you can't keep up
You're tongue feels bigger than your mouth
So take a knife and cut it out
There's no telling what you'll never say
You only criticize and never dare
Your eyes they look so unaware
There's a sliver to in your stare

When I grow up
I'll take it up
When I stand up
I hope you feel my love

And I'm seein' now
The wind has blown me away
And I'm hangin' out
But I can't get you to stay
Track Name: Landlocked
I've got time, even though I've got nothin'
But an elegant sentiment on the grapevine
Don't wanna sing the blues
Because I'm seein' red now
And I've gone into my head enough to know I've timed out

I wanna self destruct
And never step up

Have I set myself up
Set up for failure?
No matter how clever a word I write
It feels useless

I wanna self destruct
And never speak up...

It's not all
I thought it was
It's so much more
Track Name: Overboard
Tired of starin' at the empty bunk above
Where you exchanged your words of love
I know it is rough to know your love fell overboard
Now she's lost on the ocean floor

But your friends they're not gone
We're fixin' the sails
The storm it blows on
This ship has no anchor

As we swap the decks
Memories of solid ground been fillin' our heads
The changing of the seasons
The falling of leaves

No your friends they're not gone
We're fixin' the sails
The storm it blows on
This ship has no anchor
I hope you are free
You're her and you're me
A rusting old reel
Of photographic memories...
Track Name: Doubt
I got a feelin'
this feelin' is no good
back to the ceilin'
no proof where I stood
disappeared into the sky
be back around nine
cause I got a feelin'
this feelin' is no good

on and on
on and
on and on
on and

I got a feelin'
this light is too bright
never saw heaven
too close were my eyes
ugly is what ugly sees
and I believe there's beauty in everything

on and on
on and
on and on
on and

Hallelujah, to all religions
hallelujah, no matter where you're from
hallelujah no matter what you've done
hallelujah, to everyone...

Track Name: White Dove
There's a shadow every night
flickerin' with such surprise
we watch the flames all burnin' bright
wait til someone else arrives

In a shadow overcome
my throat closed up
and I guess you could say
I saw a demon

Now that I'm older and my perception's changed
it may have been an angel
but I was so afraid
of what I did not know

When the white dove flew up
the people who remained all
raised their hands

When I give up I hear a train
its whistle blows my fears away
when I have doubts I shout them out
they fill the clouds and rain down on me
when I look up across the flame
I see that I'm the one to blame

We've been standin' 'round the fire
for so long
I think it's time we start dancing
all life long...
