about

this is the freshman album by Cloud Gavin.

meaning behind Recycle and Create.

this is an album that consists of ten songs. six of those songs were carried over from our former self as a three piece, called "burnoutbright." we broke up in September of 2011, due to moving issues and other arrangements. the six songs written by burnoutbright. are all the songs that are all lowercase. (Color Changes was written as burnoutbright. but, never recorded)

I, (Zach), moved to Florida for a couple months. in the process of the break-up and after the break-up, I composed, recorded and produced the four songs on R&C that start with an uppercase letter.

it was in my plans that Cloud Gavin would be my side project. after a couple months of living in Florida, I moved back to Illinois, where Nick joined back up with me to drum. we've been the only two consistent members of all the songs under Cloud Gavin. we've been back and fourth with people filling in with shows, since we didn't have Orie as bass and we needed another guitarist for the songs written after burnoutbright.

I decided, since we had six songs already known by us and four new ones Nick could learn, we would just release the album that is Recycle and Create for free. hence, Recycle and Create. we released it on 11/11/11. why? because, that's what was hot on the streets.

so, there you go. instead of seeing a name that makes no sense.

adios.

Track Name: i'm a hurricane, covered in gasoline.
I woke up in my own bed, I start out the day.
I lived with all my regrets, I threw them away.

I know, I’m not as proud, as I used to be, I’ll rationalize myself again.

Wait, I thought we sculpted some clarity.
Probable cause for another collapse.
Comprehended or created a dream.
Please rewind.

I, constantly search, for convalescence.

We’re digging deeper and deeper now
you need some time to appreciate
Try to calm yourself down and breathe.
it’s okay.

I, constantly search, for convalescence.
Away, is where I strive; just use your own invention.

Living like a monster doesn’t quite suit your since of style
with every mark you made with every mile
So you get up and walk and move around,
You get all theses plastered thoughts and dig them in, the ground

I, constantly search, for convalescence.
Away, is where I strive; use your own invention.
Track Name: slow down, i'm rewound.
I can feel the weight of the all the ingenuity coming from the chip on my shoulder. Wishful thinking is the only thing to blame.

Just like how you and your best friends try and try until you can’t try anymore.
But if it’s best friends now, then it’s best friends until we sink.

It’s all just a minor collapse with cynical thoughts, [group]oh, God, will be ever change?


we all just want to go home.

and my hands were cold from the winter storm, I sold that night, such a long night
Just like a hole from a land-mine made from a soldier triggering it’s combine
please trust all the words that I say, because I’ve been there and back before.
so please don’t dread, so please don’t dread, just appreciate all the good that was said,
And done.


Calm down, we found, everything we need to,
Survive, all night, there won’t be any compensation.
Slow down, I’m rewound, turns out there’s more then we need.
Applaud, but thank God, that we finally found a way out.
Track Name: everything is metaphysical, almost.
it's the change that you couldn't make. it's the time that you couldn't take.
It’s the bones that you couldn’t please. It’s the lung that just couldn’t breathe.
It’s the things that you shouldn’t say, at least how they’re said in a certain way.
It’s the cost that you couldn’t provide. It’s all the right things, just at the wrong time.

Wait, we got so much dreaded space
To waste, and you know I’m crazy enough to
Try, I can’t do this unless that I feel you
Inside, are you inside? Will you please come inside?
Track Name: we're alright, take the long flight.
Wait up, I’ve got some news, we’re alright, take the long flight.
And I know, it’s hard to choose. Just sink the weight, we’ll be just fine.

Call me a statue, I will never change myself.

Wait up man, we’ve got words, to exchange
Track Name: i created a dream... or, at least it created me.
Concrete lungs,
caving in from a night of little bits of lust and lies.
I vaguely saw,
the little monsters growing greater inside my fathers eyes.

I took a breath,
while my child like vessels gently began to squeeze.
I soon realized,
that a quiet heart attack is exactly what I need,

To grow up fast,
and become the young man with a firm noble grip.
It’s all the same,
especially when you don’t even steer your own ship.


Away from the grave,
that you built for yourself,
is it really that hard?


I crept inside,
It was dark but only because I turned off all the lights.
I felt the cold,
brush against my weary arms, vision is no longer right.

I stepped outside,
laid there for a while until I could finally see,
The sunset rise,
a million miles never felt so good, my lungs could finally breathe

The air of the earth felt so heavenly,
like the very first time.

Waking up never felt so good, to me before.
Who knew it’d be the best thing, to honestly adore.
Forget the things that bring hopelessness and regret.
I swear if you show me great then I will show you my best.

Waking up never felt so good, to me before.
Who knew it’d be the best thing, to honestly adore.

I swear if you show me great then I will show you my best.
Track Name: divide me, revive me.
Soak into me, like the first time
You shaped your dreams, I swear it’s a good sign.

I’ll float, and drift, away from all my demons.
I will, provide, an army of reasons to,
justify why, to leave, to breathe, again.
Track Name: Recycle and Create
I've been trying to fly,
but, you're just featherless wings.
I've been trying to build myself,
but, you're a sandy beach.
I've been painting out a picture of perfection,
and reflection of what I want to be.
but, you're the spec in my eye.

Lately, I've been getting so tired of lack of colors against the wall.
If you're wanting to say it, then just say it,
we're not in high-school anymore.
'cause I can't stand the way,
you're holding out on me.
so, just leave it alone.

Breathe in, take in the air,
I've been so blinded,
these past few months.
but, I'm ready to move on to new things,
and see clearly again.
I think I'm feeling alright.

If you're wanting to say it, then just say it,
we're not in high-school anymore.
'cause I can't stand the way,
you're holding out on me.
so, just leave it alone.

'cause baby, I've been getting this good feeling inside of my chest.
I don't want to rush this,
I just want to relax and kick my feet back and,
drift away, on the ship I've been making with long nights,
and new canvas.
Track Name: Color Changes
Oh, it's not the distance that keeps us apart,
at least not the kind where you can physically depart.
It's the walls you build around, your stable ground.
There are no maps or atlas' to be found.

Oh, I think you've got me all wrong.
Oh, I think you've got me all wrong.

I don't need a microphone to say,
clever rhymes, fluent rhymes.
I don't need a microphone to say,
You are the blood and I am the heart.
I don't need a microphone to say
I'm here to stay.


Get up and move on,
put on your brand new pair of clothes.
Take some time to fix that head up,
but, keep those memories close.



I've got a dynamic prospective,
but, I'm never too far behind.
I know it's lame, but I'm scared of loneliness,
but, I'm not afraid to die.

I'll be the first crash and last stone thrown.
Track Name: Mountain
I moved a mountain today,
to clear the smoke up from the fire that we used yesterday,
to build that bridge and retire.
took the long way home,
I still appreciate all the little things,
and just so you know,
I still see you.

and I'll never know,
until I try to breathe,
and you'll never know,
until you're next to me.

I saw myself today,
I never wanted to admit it, but in some ways I've changed.
some worse, and some for the better,
baby, I'd never lie to you,
so, will you please sit down and talk to me?

and I'll never know,
until I try to breathe,
and you'll never know,
until you're next to me.

we had some good times,
and some bad fights,
but, that's what makes us grow,
so, get over the fact that,
we got older, so come over,
drop everything,
please drop everything, 'cause.

Track Name: Harbor
I took apart my head,
I searched and searched, but I couldn't find it.
do you feel the things you 'ought to feel?

and, oh, no, no, I don't.
I'm just laying with my back down next to the river,
I know it all too well,
I know it's hard to help myself.

hey, are you out there?
are you listening?
can you hear me?
hear me now.

my lungs are colder than the ocean floor,
just waiting for more air to breathe.
will you ever forgive me?

There are bad scars of a little life lost in the ocean breeze,
and you know me once again,
I'm waiting here for a sign of love and friends.
I'm still looking.
I'm still searching.
and baby, I don't know if I'll ever know another love like you.
well, hey, I loved and lost.
I have what's in front of me,
but, I fear it's not good enough,
so, I'll choose to walk away.

hey, are you out there?
are you listening?
can you hear me?
hear me now.

hey, are you out there?
are you listening?
can you hear me?
hear me now.

I'm just a soldier that lost his heart in the war.
and, I'm wondering aimlessly with a shallow direction.
living like stone that hasn't been thrown in years,
but, if you let me in,
I'm more than willing to be more to you than that.
