you spent your first year gone inside electricity flying through Mom, knocking her off her feet what did you do to my throat? whispering my name in my ear like a ghost boys I can smell the salt we must be so close the fog in Port Orford like a veil of smoke age of action in a big red van we couldn’t go any further west if we tried I know I seem like I’m somewhere else but you’re the only reason I’m left alive the blood borders the flame gasoline your hands soak and wring and shake a desperate head with eyes erased turned in you speak yourself goodbye reverberate when I look into water I see God if we’re made in your image then why not small rewards for staying alive faders & peace. Flint in their teeth I’ve spent thousands of hours of this life of mine in dresses in my sleep it’s been ten years since I've seen you now you’re younger than me, you couldn't understand why why I had taken so long to come visit you didn’t know you’d died the sky wisps underneath itself small voices out the window pizza and beer on the lawn I wanna be a mom I always dreamed of dying by the ocean in the grass by the edge of a cliff sit with the clear blue sky take my dose and sink when you are alone when you are in pain you can hear me in the wind you can feel me in the rain Dad slept right by your crib little lungs wheezing out and in she walked on water that Wednesday I held her foot until we flooded the stage this is where we sat and watched as the thunderstorm rolled in but you were alone yeah I was alone and maybe that’s the only way I could ever be happy I’m not here. Everything is a dream. The present doesn’t exist. I don’t recognize my hands, legs, face, or voice as my own. My vision is blurry. I don’t hear or see things normally. Everything is hazy. I blank out. I’m not here. I blank out. I’m not here. serving size fireball in the dirt outside the church. when you kill the rabbit you become the curse. I wanna leave but I can’t god dammit. he takes off my clothes and tells me it’s magic. at thirteen years, I could tell that you knew is this the last time I’ll be seeing you? I could feel the love in your eyes I know it hurts. I want you to be alright sweet angel, do you remember how you had to leave the basement where you sank below my feet the vomit and the pain and the shit on the bed wherever you are now, I hope you can forget my hands are dripping with empty answers the summer after fell like a ransom we’re all so lonesome in your kingdom I can’t feel anything when you are alone when you are in pain I can hear you in the wind I can feel you in the rain washed in golden light, I watch you disappear down the storm drain burn you away in the middle of your lake damned to dream of your face

about

I want to tell everyone about this album. It's the first time in almost ten years that I've felt that way about a project — and it's the first time I've ever put out a record so personal it feels dangerous to show it to anyone at all. I have so many stories about these songs. I'll share them as we get closer to the release date, November 4th.

I need your help getting this album off the ground. It's not going to be a popular record. That's okay. But there are people who will hear The Ghosts Beneath Our Feet and find it meaningful, helpful, unique and cathartic. They'll know this album was made for them.

I want the music to find its way to those people.

Please consider pre-ordering this album for $1 and telling a friend about it. Your support will give me a massive boost of experience points in my battle against the algorithm.

Here's my stupid ambitious goal: 150 pre-orders by August 22nd. Impossible? Probably. But let's try.

I'm donating all of the net income from digital pre-orders to the Community Uplift Program. From their website:

"The Community Uplift Program (CUP) is an openly Queer and local nonprofit located in Downtown Fargo. We work with Community Connect, Free Through Recovery and ND Rent Help to help local people regain their independence."

www.communityupliftprogram.org

One of CUP's initiatives was Harbor Health Clinic. That's where I started hormone therapy in 2018. It means so much to me to be able to give back to them. The world is incredibly challenging and alarming for trans and queer people right now, so let's raise some cash for an important cause.

Thank you so much for reading this. If you have any advice or know anyone I should connect with to help spread the word, please get a hold of me.

thanks so much ♡♡

All my love,
Nora
