Emu So hard to choose a favorite track from this. Everything is so solid. For a band not from California, they can definitely evoke that west coast feel. Time King keeps getting better with every release, can't wait for the next one! Favorite track: The Great Stake (& Potato Co.).

about

Howdy y'all, and Welcome to The 1955!

The Frontierland EP is a look back on foundations: the American frontier and the building blocks of what would become the "modern age" of the country, which made it what it is today. It evokes reflection and nostalgia -- looking back on your own past, your foundations, and the history that led you here; your own milestones and frontiers.

"Here we experience the story of our country's past ... the colorful drama of Frontier America in the exciting days of the covered wagon and the stage coach ... the advent of the railroad ... and the romantic riverboat. Frontierland is a tribute to the faith, courage and ingenuity of the pioneers who blazed the trails across America." - Walt Disney

Track Name: Thunder Mountain
My body feels the world below
So I sit in the background
Stuck in the vacuum of my head
I’m making a point, I know I know
I’m in control

Slipping into the deepest corners of my
Idealistic means of bending space and time
Quale and color, it’s all mine
It’s all mine

Maybe I’ve gone and spoke to soon
While I’m still in the background
Stuck in the chaos of my head
I see the world, but I can’t move
Am I in control?

Slipping into the deepest corners of my
Idealistic means of bending space and time
Quale and color, it’s all mine
It’s all in my mind

My body feels the world below
Vertigo is a feeling I call home
I’m troubled, maybe I’m alone
Am I lucid or am I in control?
I’ve lost my way back to me
It feels like I’ve seen this dream before
Quale, color...No more!

I’ve lost my way back to me
Am I in control?
It doesn’t matter anyway
Feel my body letting go
I’ll let it fade away
Track Name: The Great Stake (& Potato Co.)
I look inside
These skeletons surrounding me
Remind me of my own mistakes
Are consequential, narcissistic
I am awake

Oh, what have I done?
Looking back I’m not the man that I once was
What’s left now?
At the risk of sounding condescending
It’s out of your hands, but what do I know

All that I’ve done sets with the sun
Or rises to follow
To follow me into the ground
I’ve tried to run
This milestone is not like the other ones
It drives me, it weighs me down

Oh, how far I've gone
Does wandering get me out?
If I had known what I know now
I would have turned around

All that I’ve done sets with the sun
Or rises to follow
To follow me into the ground
I’ve tried to run
This milestone is not like the other ones
It drives me, it weighs me down

Comfort me now
I wonder how...
How I can understand my ground
And I wonder how I got so skeptical
Comfort is a feeling
Feeling comfort is a wonder
Beyond my control

All that I’ve done sets with the sun
Or rises to follow
To follow me into the ground
I’ve tried to run
This milestone is not like the other ones
It drives me, it weighs me down
Track Name: Sunny California
Dig your heel in the earth
Pick up your feet, even if it hurts
Just when I found gold in the river
I'm freezing, lost in the mountain winter
They said claim your stake
They said "make or break"
But I knew better, I thought
"I'll find peace out there
I'll find a life out there"

I've sprung my roots, but I've noticed
Things are changing
And it pulls me under
The ground is always in my way

Welcome to the 1955
Where all your worlds
All your worlds collide
You left them...
You left them behind

Dug my heels in the earth
Picked up my feet, even when it hurt
And I tried to pioneer something out of nothing
Hit restart (hit restart)
Built it up, tore it down, threw it all away!
Colorful drama told me
“Do what must be done”

I cut my roots, but I noticed
Things are changing
And they’re always changing
The ground won’t always lead the way

Welcome to the 1955
Where all your worlds
All your worlds collide
You left them...
You left them behind
Track Name: Curveball
In hindsight, I could have been
A make believe version of...
Embody all the moments
Passing by, one by one
But I’m the one who let them go
I shouldn’t have let them go
I should just let it go

The world has a way of throwing a curveball
When you least expect it
There’s always a catch and means to forget
But I’ll make the best of it, I know

In hindsight, I should have known
I’d find something I’m proud of
Everybody else is stuck in the past
And I’m sitting here, wondering
What could have been?
Am I really that different?

The world has a way of throwing a curveball
When you least expect it
There’s always a catch and means to forget
But I’ll make the best of it, I know
