This is a B-Side that didn't make it onto our upcoming self-titled EP (out 8/14/14). This is a song that Mikey has been working on for the past year. He has experimented with new musical and lyrical styles, and the result is a song unlike that which The Sandy Pilgrims have ever made.


released August 6, 2014

Katherine Dienstbach: Thank you for letting me transform your apartment into a recording studio.

Stanley the Dog: Thanks for being quite while I was recording.

Track Name: Mantra (edited)
And the brimming sun spills...

Two drops of gold on your folded eyelids
And you taste my teeth as I steady your chin
And the moon draws light from your indigo skin
But I don't know where you start and Heaven begins

And I will carry your bundle of burdens on my back
And keep the brazier buckle latched on the bosom that you lack
But the other lapse I'll look right at

You are gonna nurse me when I'm drunk
And paint me when I'm blank
Teach me when I'm dumb
You don't gotta ---- me in the rain
Just feed me sugar in my pain

Because I believe in a different Jesus
But there ain't no god who believes in us
And I read a different Bhagavad Gita
But there ain't no tome tellin' the story of us
And I breathe a different Brahman
But there ain't no ocean big enough to drown and swallow us
And I see a different Shiva
But we only need four arms
We only need for arms

And the truth of the beauty's not the good
And the beauty of the truth is not the good
And we are two goodnesses
And the good is good is good
