After the Mountain Fire Denver, Colorado

After the Mountain Fire is Denver's 17-year-old Harris Rosenblum. He started to play guitar at 8 and was writing his own cheesy love songs by the age 11. After his parents divorce his music transformed from light acoustic to heavy alternative. Harris then settled into an indie pop band named Nothing but Software and eventually decided to explore a deeper, softer, and more intimate side of his art. ... more

Track Name: Comatose
"Your loss" she screamed at me from the get go
I was watching raindrops condense on the outside of my window
And I screamed back at her "Oh God what do you know"
I'm trying to regain faith in a god that I don't know
Your loss she screamed at me in the schoolyard
We played with tiny toys and old fake cigars
But you talked to me as if I was baby
Not aware of the consequences inside of me

Cause it's sleep deprivation that's been keeping me from you
I'm in a deep comatose and I'd like to
Come over if that would be alright with you
I'll come alone if thats okay cause my tables set just for two

Oh they can see you whispering in the back of your mind
Oh they can see you whispering in the back of your mind
So hold on tight
Track Name: I Convinced Myself I Was The Devil
Oh my sweet boy
I've convinced myself I was the devil and all my friends agreed
I asked them nicely wont you become Satan with me
But they all declined
Instead they ventured to the village with the holy mountain shrine
Where they all lost their faith in a god I didn't believe in
From the start

Oh my sweetest friend
You've been loosing your feet
But I know a place where you can feel your arms and limbs again
Oh my dearest love
The one who I lost in the fire
I have put you down when you put out my passion and desire
Track Name: Turn My Bones
Oh let's start a fire darlin', Oh let's start a war
I've lived for 17 years my darlin' and im about to live for 6 more
But when I'm 24 I'll perish and I'll have my blood smeared across the floor
Oh let's start an anthem darlin', Let's start singing' a song
We can try to get all the words right darlin' but some of them will be wrong
And we'll perish in a nuclear holocaust when my bones turn to french fries

I'm starting to think that it's with you my darlin' that I would like to die
So please save me from your smiling face or I think I might just cry

Oh let's start a living darlin', Oh let's make a pact
We can join up all the false memories of our absent dads
And we can think about the future that will never come for either you or me
Oh let's start a cult my darlin', Oh lets start some fun
We can set up all our lawn chairs and think about the puns
That we used to laugh at younger ages and of simpler minds

Oh I'm starting to think that it's with you my darlin' that I would like to die
So please save me from your smiling face or I think I might just cry
So please save me from your smiling face or I think I might just cry
So please save me from your smiling face cause I think I might just cry
Track Name: Ice Water
We shared a glass of ice water when we went to the city
I've told you in previous songs that your eyes look devilishly pretty
But you turned me into a black sheep inside my own mind
The braids that were coming from your head would only deteriorate in due
Time

But oh I wish it had worked out the way that the both of us planned
And oh i wish i could tell the difference between my heart and my hand
I wish you didn't make me a prisoner in my own mind
Cause now my only solace is finding god and passing the time

Oh I remember my childhood sitting next to you
We went through all of the mystic valleys and painted them all blue
But you turned my gold into silver by night
And I'd outgrown you in wit but you'd outgrown me in
Height

But oh I wish it had worked out the way that the both of us planned
And oh i wish i could tell the difference between my heart and my hand
I wish you didn't make me a prisoner in my own mind
Cause now my only solace is finding god and passing the time
Track Name: Satellite (Guster Cover)
Shining like a work of art
Hanging on a wall of stars
Are you what I think you are?

You're my satellite
You're riding with me tonight
Passenger side, lighting the sky
Always the first star that I find
You're my satellite

Elevator to the moon
Whistling our favorite tune
Trying to get a closer view

You're my satellite
You're riding with me tonight
Passenger side, lighting the sky
Always the first star that I find
You're my satellite

Maybe you will always be
Just a little out of reach

You're my satellite
You're riding with me tonight
Passenger side, lighting the sky
Always the first star that I find
You're my satellite
You're my satellite
Track Name: Losing My Mind
Oh I know a place where you can feel your virgin veins
Protruding out your skin the fragments will all feel okay

It will feel again like you were born again into my hands
And it will feel just like you were bored in the sand

Oh I know a place where you can let your loving grow
Oh I know an animal where all your thoughts can all go

It will feel again like you were born again into my hands
And it will feel just like you were bored in the sand

Cause I am loosing my fucking mind
I am loosing my fucking mind

I can feel it in-between us
While the symphony accompanies the rain
But when the wind blows through your branches
I'll still feel the same
I can feel it in-between us
The breeze blowing by the way
And the glass outlines of children
Wild at play

Cause I am loosing my fucking mind
I am loosing my fucking mind
Track Name: Veins and Arteries
All my veins and arteries are poking out of me
like some sort of metal tree's replacing my blood
And I know I've gone insane cause the way you call my name
Doesn't sound the same anymore
And i feel that childhood did me no good
Cause evil's taken me
And the storm is getting rough
But i thought i would stay tough
and leave you to dry

And Oh I'm loosing sleep on you
But you shouldn't lose sleep on me too
But you shouldn't lose sleep on me too

I've got someone thinking that I've lost everything i once had
But the truth is my friend I've got no meaningful end
So I'll die right here by your side
You've got so many broken things
A thousand trinket rings
And you tell me they're not for sale
I'm losing my grip I'm losing all my shifts that I thought were real

But you should come home my love
But you should come home my lover
I missed you so
I missed you so
I missed you so
