about

The arrival of Ourmegadawn has been a long time coming. Despite frequent appearances in Riverwest and the general Milwaukee area, Ourmegadawn is the first proper album since Animals In Human Attire's 2011 self-titled outing.

Members of the band spread their talents amongst various local acts (including Temple, Myles Coyne & the Rusty Nickel Band, The Zelda Routine, and others), but this specific arrangement of BREADKING frequenters drives a particular sound with vocals by Jack Tell steering the ensemble.

Beyond all else, Ourmegadawn is fun. It's eight tracks of head-bobbing, folk-informed indie rock, and like all things BREADKING, Animals In Human Attire takes a punk approach to the whole album.

Track Name: Antfarm
i caught you digging for a home in your garden shoes
tell me how are you going to find what you could never lose
is it hammered in your head there's no choice to choose
or is it feeling like the right way now
is feeling like the right way now

i saw you looking at your feet just like an ant
and the matter at your mind would seem to chant
you go where you gotta go and you never loo back
it seems that your choice was clear it seems that your choice was clear

now your leaving this hole for another home
tell me tell me whats the reason for your shoeless soul (sole)
if your getting your whole for another ones half it could seem that your point was clear
and it is feeling like the right way now

woo

hum a little tune for the working class as we were steeping to the clock work beat
i'm aching in the head from the summer heat as i'm dreaming of an awkward sea
bloody in the eyes from a paper cheat as i'm walking downtown to the burning streets
bloody in the eyes from a paper cheat as i'm dreaming of the awkward sea

with 6 less hours than i had before
i'm stepping out on the floor
well i can take it like a man i heard someone say but maybe that's just his way
cause i cant stand to stand and i don't want to sit and its another indecisive display
i couldn't take it like a man i heard someone say well maybe that's just his way
maybe that's just the way
maybe there is no way

cause i'm a boy
you're a man
that's the difference that i see
that's the difference in us now
i'm a boy you are a “man”
i take risks while you've got a plan
that's the difference that i see

woo
Track Name: South Pole Mountain Song
i came up fer a different point of view and every step among the mountain had its own
danger shadows hiding in recluse i could have easily just went and slipped the noose
but i came upon a mountain dwelling group who held the feathers of the eagles in there hearts
gave me some advice said try and watch the ice and you will hold your ground just fine

you’ve gotta think just like an eagle
to live like the wind
you gotta live just like the wind to be an eagle
yerp

i came across a lion stuck down in a hole who said “i used to be incredible”
but then one day i fell down in this hole and now im careless and im useless and yer next!
so i reached my hand down and tried to help him out he almost took my hand right off so took off on him and as i walked away from him i got down on my hands and i felt my wrinkles were growing deeper
the mountain had turned to sand and i couldn’t move

then i sank down to the bottom of the sea and neptune said god dammit jack you play the best guitar ive ever seen, but you live in a dream you live in a dream you live in dream you live in a dream and YOU’VE STILL GOT A MOUNTAIN TO CLIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIMB!!!
Track Name: Sun Machines
dwellers that have civilized built machines and realized they took the sun from all our eyes and there is no need for the real light

robots that then civilized raped the land till none survived and there is no need for them to do anything anymore

they civilize to destroy make us rebuild it so everything is right in there eyes to destroy make us rebuild cause nothing is ever right in there eyes
nothing is ever right in there eyes

sun machines up in the sky giving life to those who died
in the trading winds our names got carried away
un-stitched our skin and sewn into uniform
ready for the war

blood remains right where we stand
the wars we fought upon these lands
its our hands to keep this out of their hands
with extinction near and i’m still alive

somehow i do anything and everything just to survive on the clock that floats in the sky
its coming in hard and so everyone just runs for their lives
everyone just runs for their lives

yeah i ran like hell straight for the hell sands as god cut the tourniquet the ocean had covered the land at the bottom i saw the faces of the people and some dirty little corpses communed with the steeple as god gave advice he said my only advice is don’t take my advice i cant take myself seriously now that is why I’m stuck on the sea
Track Name: Wind Waker
ascending the storm was the face of the sky turning doves into dust as they lay to to die
i’m stoned at the shrine under slandering eyes as i’m trying to shine on the time holding sand in my glass hammered eyes with a heart to withstand the snow in my hands had a higher demand than the clothing i wore i did not understand that my pockets had filled with sand

as time shattered to rain and i conversed with the moon to explain that the river is my name and i know that I’m not afraid today but i fear what the tide of tomorrow brings my way

his face to the storm and his back to the sea the moon turns over
impressed that you made it this far and she knows
and can see how your still afraid that if the weight of your heavy prediction goes unchanged and remains unnamed

you can see that the truth is you and everything that makes it you so people never die they will only change.

as time shattered to rain
and i conversed with the moon to explain that the river is my name
i know that im not afraid today but i still fear what the tide of tomorrow brings my way
Track Name: Hell
just last night i awoke from some different version of hell and i walked outside
i swear i could smell a fire from the weapons of mass desire
which you cradled in your hands so sweetly the idea like your higher on the scale than your typical liar a typical liar a typical liar your the typical kind

and baby the way that you’ve been singing the blues i’ve got a feeling this could take all night
and don’t deny that every second you lose has been intelligent by design don’t deny don’t deny

OoOoOoO

i appreciate the efforts in your clever schemes but don’t mind me i’m known to hide in signs of danger
im more accustomed to the ways of the stranger but i gave my position away
and piece by piece you went and sank me to the bottom f the lake and you now you watch me as i scatter
its time you learned that i was not fake i’m just me and i’m skeptical
cause your tricks are getting old

so could we take off all of clothes because id rather see your flaws than yer so called perfection
cause you crafted that field of smoke just like a dream and you blacked out the sky and seems you made a curtain for every eye to hide the truth from them
and though we never really made a difference
does anybody ever make a difference

i just fail to see the connection of what is seen and what is read between the lines
and now i’m just a singer of the blues oh no we have nothing in common
you are not a singer of the blues oh no we have nothing in common
and maybe one day you’ll see if anything was meant to be the right way
its wrong then

and if that day is someday soon well i just hope that i can say I’m right then right now
with my bad luck and a tough crowd ill be dreaming my name out
over the sea
Track Name: Breaking Point
from the military’s point of view we were just animals in ancient catalytic designs
they arrived on time and got me wrong and crossed the line too many times
so many times i think we toppled the barriers
which beat my heart just like drum becoming of the personality where one will die another survives
i’m still alive and just in time to meet up with the cavalry and fight to the death forever more

now the winters on its way

its safer to send all of my summertime relations to the back of mind
they are the same kind
and what a shamed crime
they’re just talking bout the end of the world
were only humans
humans in the summer but beasts by the winter
beasts by the winter uh huh
yeah

what goes up
must come down
what goes up will come down someday soon
whats been wrapped up in a line takes a little time fore the truth don’t show on these
uncommon grounds
no they don’t
and someday soon even the moon will put a hole in the ground

you struggle like an animal joined together at the waist with different intentions
you speak in fire and ice and we were warming up the weather whenever we get it right

hot
cold
i miss the ocean
yeah?
no?
i miss the ocean
oh god dammit how i miss the ocean
Track Name: Cathexis
i was only waiting for the proper time to tell you that i have been away its been awhile since i have seen a bright day
the sun has looked me in the eye and said my friends are ok but as for now where I lay I’m getting comfortable in my mind
in my mind i feel fine

so i shut up and wait on the wind
to change my mind was never a sin
shut up and wait on the wind
to change my mind was never a sin

the clock is not a friend don’t take advice from something stuck to a wall
i’m not upset you didn’t call me last night
why do i have to think about everything your talking about
its that i mind its just that im comfortable in my mind
in my mind i’m out of my mind

wake up and deal wit the change
to lose your ways is to lose your name
wake up and deal with the change
to lose your name is to lose your ways
