about

Brother Orchid Maryville, Tennessee

In 2011, Chase Sterling came to Michael Knouff to record some demo songs as he had worked with Chase's previous band. Michael and Chase hit it off quickly, bonding over hookah, drinks, and conversations about their favorite bands. One day, Chase came to hang with Michael and asked if he would like to be more involved by helping write music for his project. Thus, Brother Orchid was born. ... more

Track Name: Swim
I’ll breathe you in the early morn
Stare in awe when you adorn
A dress of gleaming light
That answers why
Bring about a needed change
I’ll shower in shed tears you rain
Leap into the autumn of your eye
Clear your mind
And you will fly
Away from all the conflicts you face everyday
Baby, let’s escape
Swim up to the stars
And rest our heads upon the moon
Peace will be ours
Swim up to the stars
And rest our heads upon the moon
Peace will be ours soon
Sprout amongst the trees around
Where a smile that can drown
The world into needed enlightenment
Trickle down the water’s fall
Fall asleep to the crickets call
Share a sense of bewilderment
Clear your mind
And you will fly
Away from all the conflicts you face everyday
Baby, let’s escape
Swim up to the stars
And rest our heads upon the moon
Peace will be ours
Swim up to the stars
And rest our heads upon the moon
Peace will be ours soon
Track Name: Here We Are
I’ve been lost
So have you
At what cost
See a dream
As a road
To an end
As a road
We can bend
Here we are sinking into melody
Into melody
Here we are sinking into melody
Into melody
Take a breath
Succumb to space
Air is thin
And we fly
Far beyond
Old world skies
Far beyond the wandering eyes
Here we are sinking into melody
Into melody
Here we are sinking into melody
Into melody
Through all the lives I lived
And all the things I had to give up
Here I am still standing
Through all the lives I lived
And all the things I had to give up
Here I am still standing
Track Name: The Traveler
When I was young
My father always told me
Always live life to the fullest
With no regrets
But I was young
Careless and stupid
I should have listened
But I didn’t have the time
I need to see it through his eyes
I need to see through the disguise
And be
Be a man like him
The positive
Things in life bestowed upon me
I have want to give away
An immaterial man
With a lack of wants
Yet a want for peace
To turn these nightmares
Into dreams
I need to see it through his eyes
I need to see through the disguise
And be
Be a man like him
Track Name: Closer Apart
We went out
On a Saturday night
Heads were swimming
In a sea of dreams
After the cocaine blues
And our heads took flight
Snow was crisp under our feet
I looked at you those eyes could see that a heart was true
In the time of our lives
I looked at you those eyes could see that a heart was true
In the time of our lives
Can’t see past the walls
Of puffed out clouds
Fauns are running in the woods
We are hiding behind ancient trees
But this moment won’t last
I looked at you those eyes could see that a heart was true
In the time of our lives
I looked at you those eyes could see that a heart was true
In the time of our lives
Well on this special Saturday night
We grew closer
And further apart
Growing up don’t make us smarter
Nor does it make us stronger
I looked at you those eyes could see that a heart was true
In the time of our lives
I looked at you those eyes could see that a heart was true
In the time of our lives
Track Name: Sun Shine's On
Night drivin’
Rain ridin’
Lights are high and I’ve been doing this for too long
Moneys gone and
She’s still smilin’
Fucked up worse more than anyone could’ve ever done
I’ve been lost
Inside my head afraid to come out
I can’t trust
The monsters that I meet
So I hide
Underneath the covers
Until the sun shines on my misery
Whiskey sours
In morning hours
While in the showers I’m lost in a strange land
Crops are gone and
Baby’s cryin’
I am dying in the bed that I have made
I’ve been lost
Inside my head afraid to come out
I can’t trust
The monsters that I meet
So I hide
Underneath the covers
Until the sun shines on my misery
