about

J GRGRY Seattle, Washington

As personal as J GRGRY's music is, dredged from the heartbreak and desperation of Joe Gregory's past, these songs are also universal, the hallmark of great writing. One after another, they speak to challenge and triumph, addiction and redemption. It's the same all-too-human cycle that has brought J GRGRY, together with their audience, to the here and now. ... more

Track Name: eFlower
In a way I wish I could let go of the ledge
and take over the voices controlling my head
I'm afraid I need you
like this cell needs light
I'm afraid I want you
just like a thief wants the night

Please don't go, don't go

You make me so nervous I shake
I want to be near you every second I'm awake

In a way I failed to distribute my time
I'd take back what was given to friends that weren't mine
I'm afraid I need you
like this cell needs light
I"m afraid I want you
even if they say its not right

You don't know what you did to me
(you led me astray)
You don't know what you did to me
(you made me insane)
You don't know what you did to me
Track Name: Cave Birds
There's other fish in the sea
Other dreams to dream
There's other hands I could hold
As we walk across the coals

I know that towers tilt
I don't know why monuments are built
or rings are worn

It's gonna work out
somehow it's gonna work out
I know it's gonna work out
somehow, someway you'll see

There's other fish in the sea
other dreams to dream
no one can handle a soul
like an animal on a rope
Track Name: Rare Poisons
I remember bits and pieces from that night
the wet cement and the street lights
I felt high whenever I caught your eye
I remember running through the city
laughing until we cried

you must have given me rare poisons
how else could a love like this be real

I remember bits and pieces from the next day
champagne in bed and the way you touched my face
I felt high whenever you caught my eye
I remember riding on a bus
desperate for your next touch

It's all gonna be ok if I'm with you
Track Name: Porcelain Doll
I see lives I've lived on the souls of your shoes
I see the hopes and dreams I held
stuck to the bottom of your boots
I saw home in your worry
too little too late

You're like a porcelain doll
through your eyes I see forests (tree by tree)
You're like a porcelain doll
through your tongue I hear oceans (league by league)

I see all the times I tried on the floor in your room
I see the face of what I built covered in mud and perfume
I saw holes in your story
too little too late

Who wouldn't believe all these stories that you weave
(you're so sweet)
who wouldn't believe all these stories that you keep spinning
(you're so sweet)
Track Name: Bees
I was on the heels of the horse in the forest
white as snow she came
I couldn't see through the fog of the morning
I barely knew my way

Every time you try to drink the honey
you swallow down the bees

I can't take what I took any longer
I can't swim through the ocean at this speed
I can't take what I took any longer
I can't breathe through the mask I wear to see

I was on the edge of a cliff I constructed
deaf and dumb and frail
I couldn't see through the fog of the morning
I barely knew my name
Track Name: Erase the Shore
It's gonna rain again real soon
the leaves will change from brown to red to green and back again
it's gonna change the way we look at things for sure
with the river comes the water, comes the rapids
to erase the shore

it doesn't have to be this way

live, die, repeat

I'm gonna take the shape of a tomb
the lines will changes from light to dark to none until the end
I"m gonna change the way I look at you for good
with the river comes the water comes the rapids to erase the shore
we'll be living under water, just like before

it doesn't have to be this way

live, die, repeat

we can learn from our mistakes

I'm gonna take the shape of the room
I'm gonna resurrect real soon
I'm gonna take the place of the fool
and rest for good
Track Name: Giants
I feel storms inside
when I see you I see intricate designs
I feel sick to my stomach
when I think about dividing what we built
but the hurricane will have its way

I don't wanna think about forever
(I just wanna run away)
I don't wanna think about forever
(we're all gonna end up the same)

I feel torn inside
when I hear you I hear intimate winds rise
I feel stuck and the sands that hold me keep me in this time
where blood runs dry and the hurricane will have its way

the giant cannot be slain
Track Name: Ships
It's not as easy as it looks to look away
while you taste the rain
hour after hour it replays
sinking ships one day I pray one day will take you away

Just cause you feel it doesn't make it a fact
I need a reason

It's not as simple as a book
where stories fade and edges fray
time after time it decays
sinking ships I know know will take us away

Nothings real to me
I pray endlessly
Track Name: Floodlands
All the smoke on the screens
All the signals I jammed
I can still see you staring me down

All the holes in your heart
All the malice you brought
makes me want out

I'm gonna find the strength soon
(I'm gonna stand tall)
I'm gonna find the strength soon
to climb these walls

I'm gonna leave this world soon

All the cities we saw
All the people we left behind
I knew I should never speak

All the cracks in the streets
Made by the trees well those roots filled my mind

I'm gonna leave this world soon
I'm not gonna be blinded by what I thought love was
