alex vogel Honest lyrics that are lightly veiled in relatable experiences. Much like a musical security blanket enveloping you in somber thoughts and up beat tempos, Like Pioneers is the heavy handed hug you need in your day to day. Favorite track: Virginia.

Track Name: Virginia
It's a natural fall –
Because it's blatant it probably amounts to a higher call.

"Might live forever," anyone that's made it promises to tell you.

A mind's been sold and gone for good,
pack your bags
only ask for help if it's understood.
Made it your call,
all washed up on a cause that no one saw.

You'll save your best frown,
while you were face down.

I don't remember them all.
(It's been so, it's been so long.)

When I was little, my dad took me up to the stadium.
(It's been so, it's been so long.)

Staircase was narrow, crooked little city, well beyond the echoes.

My mom stayed home and prayed for two, went to bed,
only to wake up to a crowded room.
Made it my fault,
all washed up on a cause that no one saw.

You'll save your best frown,
while you were face down.
Track Name: Quit Digging
Define life as a paperback.
It doesn't bother me.
Just cause it's written don't make it fact.
I guess my character lives a lie.
because the version I see
is reading thinner than the page.

I'm worried that it's just
reheated blues in a microwave.
Maybe my joy's too much
to be
contained.

I find life in this plastic bag.
It doesn't matter to me.
Brain's melted, spirit's back.
And if I ever get out alive
the biggest problem I see
is giving my ghost the pink slip.

I'm worried that it's just
reheated blues in a microwave.
And if it's all been done
why even bother to create?
Maybe my joy's too much
to be
contained.

If my blood won't boil,
tell my friends I'm terrified of soil.
If my blood starts to curdle,
tell my mom I'd never desert her.

Tell my mom, please tell my mother.
Tell my friends, please tell my friends.
Track Name: Daddy was a Pilot
It's a natural fall
because it's blatant it probably amounts to a higher call,
might live forever --
anyone thats made it promises to tell you
a mind's been sold and gone for good,
only ask for help its

Yr gonna have to fly it,
her daddy was a pilot.

And we rise, in the night
hold the light –

(I wanna see you go high!)

(Yr gonna have to riot.)
I won't wake up early if you won't go to sleep anymore, if you're not afraid to wake up totally alone.

(This family's never quiet.)
My pain-staking service was a small piece of what was in store -- back to a lonely world that's over and gone.

And we rise, in the night
hold the light –

(I wanna see you go high!)

This is right: it's the inbound flight,
it's the end of night.

And we rise, in the night
hold the light –

(I wanna see you go high!)

Yr gonna have to fly it,
her daddy was a pilot.
Track Name: My Ford is Yours, Too
See me go –
you were watching from a Galveston beach,
by now I'd promised you a boulevard
stuck in a wide wide space.

Such a genuine girl --
I should be alongside,
but I'd be wrong: I'd be wrong not to run away uninspired.
My tired eyes.

It's enough for a reliable week.
You put your head on my shoulderblade,
until the customers leave.

See me go –
a rovin' now, twelve years spent up north.
There's water here somehow.
The city coats my skin with sound –
and it's turned up so loud.

I leaned back, until i was layin flat – staring up –
the smoke from all the chimneys dried the sun.
It took me hours and hours to get up.
I'll fade into the pavement -- just you watch.

It's enough for a reliable week.
You put your head on my shoulderblade,
until the customers leave.

No surprise if you show --
No surprise if you show.
