about

Me (Mullarkey from Run-On Sunshine) and John (Algae and Tentacles) became friends in Tucson and have long talked about doing a split where we cover each other's songs and contribute some originals. I moved to Phoenix and we kept talking about the split. Then, we did it!

Track Name: Run-On Sunshine - Run-On Thesis
My friend said, “You’ve got to light up. These dark, chilled days are rare in these parts. Get good with contrasts in your skies. You’ll get your sun back now soon enough.” I told him two years of no flu, not once did miss aches and coughing. What’s bad can’t trick me to be fond, no matter how long it stays away. I’ve got my stockpile of rain clouds. They made me ghost for twenty years. Woke up and ran as soon as I could. Not reached equator, still work to do.

This sunlight that fuels me, like I can do anything! The sadness always lurking gets burnt back by sun’s rays. No curtain, doors open, it’s time to start walking. Stuck inside too many times. Must catch up with the sun…

Every day! All day!

My dad said, “You’ve got to watch out. The sun got to me, still eats my body. Worked nights then slept days on the beach. Fried skin: status symbol in the 50s.” Dear Dad, I promise my caution. Wear hat, shades, sunscreen, religiously. But can’t let fear keep me inside, hidden way from the love of my life. Our people have suffered long enough, toiling on green isle ‘neath gray sky. Generations I must pay tribute, by soaking sun that they scantly saw.

I’m not just done with clouds, I’d cancel nights if I could! Sun sets to sweet twilight, then swings back to sunrise. Like a run-on sentence, each day strung together. No periods of darkness, so I can see the sun…

Every day! All day!
Every day, all day.
Track Name: Run-On Sunshine - Cat's What Breaks the Heart
In this world full of pain, heartache, and woe, it’s cats who always break my heart the most. They’re not even trying but my tears they bring, just doing the things that come instinctively. Only a cat can break my heart! Only a cat can break my heart.

My friend in Chicago’s got a cat named Halloween. She’s got that tortitude but as pretty as can be. Was eight years before she’d finally let me pet. Gotta wait two more till I’ll see her again. Only a cat…

Out my window see those feral cats play, rolling in the dirt and roaming all day. They’ll stare at me till I open the can, yet scratch behind the ear is never how it ends. Only a cat…

Open my door and what a welcome meow! Stray kitty’s ready to cuddle now. I buy him treats and treat him like he’s mine, then he stops showing and I’ll never know why. Only a cat…

So go ahead, humans, hit me with your best! Delete me, deceive me, after time I’m over it. You can’t understand this life’s hardest part:
How cute little kitties will break my heart.
