about

A Mountain Of Yeses
UNiPEGaDONG Records - DONG-0001

Recorded with the loose concept of being a story set in space.
After many weekly collaborations with Devin Brown, Be/Non finally had a skeleton of what would become a full-on, fleshed-out concept record. Act one and act two.

Fully realized. In 2009 Brodie Rush set out to turn the album into a 50 minute film. Still in post production, Be/Non hopes to have a completed film by spring 2014.

Track Name: Journey/A Mountain Of Yeses
Journey/A Mountain Of Yeses
(Brodie Rush) Copyright 2009

Weighing in at six pounds
I can't wait to see the day
Fleshing out the in bounds
As I call out my hooray!
Beware the vacuum
'Cause the air just dissipates
Crawling down the fire escape
You can smell my body in you

I see my path and walked down the road
So I could get out of town
Tried to make connection
And follow it through
I'm over the moon
I was late for the countdown
I missed the race
Never fear
I'm here
G-force flowing through you

I can count to ten
I can count to ten
Growing 'til I have momentum

On the other side
Voices call to me
And the sound like

BOM BOM BOM (etc.)

Go away now
I'm done with you
I was fool not to know
Everything flashes
Behind my eyes
No love I could have ever, known
Track Name: Space
Space
(Brodie Rush) Copyright 2009

Feeling better than I have for days and days
Further on my way to be a superstar
I can't recall the time at all
A distant sun revealed
Nice to see a different world
That's spinning round and round to welcome me

Hello dear you seem sincere and looking good
Help me on my way to meet the gang?
If I was in my right mind
I'd tell you what I think
Never share my deepest feelings
So they can't be used to use the pain

I can travel alone while I'm singing a song
I can rocket across the sky
You were not right
You weren't my type at all
I can only say that it was fun
But now it's time to go away
Track Name: Spark 22
Spark 22
(Brodie Rush) Copyright 2009

I have come to the conclusion that I am a fake
Never have I asked you questions
How you spend your day

I could not disguise my take on you

I looked on as you were brutally cold
Never have I felt so out of touch but in control

I have come to the conclusion that I am a fake
Never have I asked you questions
How you spend your day

I could not disguise my take on you
Track Name: Passion For Displacement
Passion For Displacement
(Brodie Rush) Copyright 2009

Tell me I'm right and I belong
No place I know I can call my home
Scientists mock me
They say I'm immune
To waves of depression and impending doom

What do you know?
What do you get?
Dreams I had
Lies I have
Recently I fortified the strength in resolve

Barely intact
I can't blend into the scene
I summoned the work of inconceivable dreams
Study the cosmos
Intellectual fact
And I proved that a map can't tell me where I'm at.

I'm traveling fast enough for time to slow down.
Moving much faster than light and sound
Track Name: Whiteout
Whiteout
(Brodie Rush) Copyright 2009

Living but only to dream
In the face of
Defeat to define on your mind
The distractions of
Deepening thought that defies
The occasional
Streak of malicious belief
From angelic decree

Masochistic elation
I like to talk and take

In a whiteout
Just like a blackout
I would celebrate
If I could
Only find the door

Vacantly
Pleasant
You have to follow your nose
Perfection is what I'd call this game

In a whiteout
Just like a blackout
I would celebrate
If I could
Only find the door

In a whiteout
Just like a blackout
I would celebrate
If I could
Open up the door

Vacuously seen
Immaculately contrived
Icing is the ensnare to entice me
Track Name: Planet Of Knives
Planet Of Knives
(Brodie Rush) Copyright 2009

I can love you
I can tame you
I decide life

I will shape you
I will break you
Feel the cold knife

Me I'm not so bad
Don't confuse that

I could thrill you
I could kill you
Now that the tables have turned

I will destroy
The person you are
For trying to make me bleed

Oh you tried so hard
You pulled the death card
Track Name: Valley of No
Valley Of No
(Brodie Rush) Copyright 2009

You can run
You can hide
Lock your pain inside
'Cause I'm loose
I'm tight
I can put up my dukes because I'm ready to fight

Ooh, ooh
I got to tell you
Ooh, ooh
I want somebody to talk to
Ooh, ooh
I got to get to you
Oh yea
I do, I do
I really do!

What a release
'Cause you fill my cup up
You seal the deal
Have you got the guts to be strong girl

I know you well
Even if you think I don't
'Cause I've been in you
Your heart is dying to sleep

In the Valley Of No
On the Planet Of Knive
Unopened
You cut me deep

Uncover the truth
I left a surprise for you

Uncover the truth
I left a surprise for you

Nature Of Body
(Brodie Rush) Copyright 2009

How did all this happen?
Still drunken and confused
The moments of my nights abuse
Kissed
Morning dew
I feel
Something new

Putting on my clothing
I can't recall your face
You're the prettiest imperfect one... mmm
Won't notice me
'Cause I'm so
Fond of you

I can love you
I can tame you
I decide life

I can love you
I can tame you
I decide life

Your song it calls to me
And it sounds like

I am looking for you
I got to get to you
I can stop anytime
But I won't
I have left the Mountain Of Yes
To discover relief
From self-made distress
I have been through it all
Just to be the ball
Down the corner and a jog to the left
I am drawn to your beautiful song
You can smell me coming for you

Hello dear
You seem sincere
And looking good
I'm here to take you up to meet the gang

Come on now
We can't miss the boat
I can't wait to show you my home
No time to speak
We have a long way to go
I think it can wait
We were running
As the hole began to fill up
Nothing left to buy us time
Just in time for the countdown
We've won the race
Never fear
I'm here
G-force flowing through you

10-9-8-7-6-5
I can count to ten
4-3-2-1

If I were in my right mind
I'd tell you what I'd think

If I were in my right mind
I'd tell you what I'd think

I could not disguise my take on you
Track Name: Wasted
Wasted
(Brodie Rush) Copyright 2009

Time again
I'm going to give it my all
I'm gonna knock back two of that stuff that makes me get

Wasted
Fucked up
Wasted

I fly by so low
Scraping up my body
All alone

Pass the phone
I gotta call my home
I wanna make sure everything's nice
'Cause I want to get

Wasted
Fucked up
Wasted

I fly by so low
Scraping up my body
All alone
Track Name: By the Tree
By The Tree
(Brodie Rush) Copyright 2009

By the tree
I am whole in your arms
Even though
I'm holding the knife
I am here
To tell you goodbye
Even though I'm missing you
I am here to say goodnight

There was a time when you laid by my side
I had no fear as I held you tight
I am here
To say it's alright

I understand that you had to go
I didn't know that your candle burned low
Oh my dear
I loved your life

(Wail)

You were limp in my frozen arms
Your eyes were open and waiting
Oh my Boi
You made me smile

I laid you down to embrace the sky
I lit the match and I burned you high
I'm here
To say
Goodnight
Track Name: Over The Moon
Over The Moon
(Brodie Rush) Copyright 2009

Hello dear
It's nice to meet you
I'm here because I'm feeling incomplete
I never got your name
Because I never tried
And I can't shake emotions that I have inside
You moved me
And I don't know why
You move me
Until I cried
And now... It's nice to meet you

I'm now
Over The Moon
Never to come back
And now
That I'm over you

On this day
A million miles away
You told me that you could not ever love again
I climbed aboard my vessel
And you waved to me goodbye
I never knew you had blue tears behind your eyes
Move me
Through the distant skies
You moved me
Until I died
And now
I have to leave you

I'm now
Over The Moon
Never to come back
And now
That I'm over you

Cause now, that I'm insane
Aftermath remains
There's no more looking back
It's time to face the facts
I'll love you just the same
As rocket engine flame

Since that day has come
It’s multiplied
Fantastic tales of living out a life
I wanted to explain the fear behind my eyes
I wanted you to know the painful plight

You moved me
And I don't know why

I'm now
Over The Moon
Never to come back
And now
That I'm over you
