Squeezing Life Like A Chest Now

Words by Sean Moeller, Illustration by Johnnie Cluney, Recording engineered by Mike Gentry

Family Lumber lead singer Michael Tietjen takes us into a world that can feel extremely familiar - even if it's just the part of it that does drive-bys. He writes about the walking and the standing around, the trivial and the trailing off of ambition, or effort. It's looking at the aftermath and recognizing so many familiar particles. It's finding the aftermath to be somewhat friendly, when it shouldn't be. It's wandering about, through the elements, through a night and through what should have been your sleep. It's being caught up in a clogged vein.
