about

Sonny Baker Buffalo, New York

"Baker is a wildly inventive guitarist whose ability to blend sweeping arpeggios, indie-rock jangle, and authoritative, outside-the-box soloing lends depth and soulfulness to the various bands he works with. His solo material is contemporary indie rock of the first order. Fans of Ween, Radiohead, Nels Cline and Television, line up."

Track Name: Reluctant Thief
I can't
get down
to the valley

I can barely
get out of my chair

I have
become nothing
but a reluctant little thief

I know it's been years
since I made a fool of you
right when you found me
slipping underneath
these broken little dreams

I'm not sure
what I'd even say
if I saw you

I'm not sure
there's enough
blood flowing to my brain

I know it's been years
since I made a fool of you
right when you found me
slipping underneath
these broken little dreams

I can't
get down
underneath

I can barely
balance on the living room floor

I am
still
nothing
but i'm
nothing like I was before

I know it's been years
since I made a fool of you
right when you found me
slipping underneath
these broken little dreams
Track Name: Comfortable
i'm at the point
to set it all
on fire

dump the rest
into a garbage can

no purpose for these words
they're not putting
anyone at ease

age before regret
i'm not
pushing, pushing it
getting too comfortable
stuck

time makes it all comfortable
routines will make it all comfortable
i can't wait to play other peoples songs
for the rest of my life
Track Name: dead, shaking it
tragic misfortune
reeks of lead
re-purpose for shelter
sorrow keeps me fed

reaching for symptoms
you can't play dead
live in the corner
trying to shake it

reverse the narrative
it's not like before
your face is mine
but you fall to the floor

can you feel it
i'm not ready
yet
Track Name: Stiff Bed
are we bored yet
i'm not talking about
which way we're goin'

i'm sore I guess
can't figure out
which bones i've broken

I want to crawl into your head
Make a nice cold stiff bed

is there much more to go
I think everyone feels
there's a lifetime ahead

well i'm fucked I guess
I need to refresh
which way we're goin'

I want to crawl into your head
Make a nice cold stiff bed
Track Name: easier
not much has changed
i'm a scavenger for the useless
buy my time
im barely even heartless

they want to know
am I barely a person
too old to be
taken seriously

not much as changed
i'm down to only my bones now
I can't describe
what it feels with out skin

they want to know
am I barely a person
too drunk to be
taken seriously

nothing
gets easier
easier to deal
with nothing
Track Name: steady hands, dead tired
nothing gets my heart racing
steady hands, dead tired

nothing gets my blood flowing
steady hands, dead tired

no more
make out shifts
anymore

dead tired
