about

Songs from the Woods - Remastered by Paul du Gré.

"Maheekats is a dream rock band out of California comprised of Clara Efrona and Craig Camp. They blur the lines between rock, folk, ethereal and psychedelic creating a unique groove. They cite diverse influences such as Sun Ra, XTC, Yes, The Specials, Phoebe Snow, and Killing Joke. While the influences are so seemingly random, it makes perfect sense with their overall vibe. Efrona’s sweet vocals range from delicate, swooping falsettos to bluesy growls. Paired over luscious melodies of psychedelic and post-punk influenced guitar, bass and drums, Maheekats sound is distinctly modern and yet feels so wonderfully familiar."
- Strawberry Tongue Radio

Track Name: Lady In Space
Boarding the ship as the whistle blows
She's right at home with the cockpit controls
And if her glasses slip down her nose
There's no distraction 'cause there she goes

Lady in space
Lady in space
Lady in space
Yeah

And what good luck that the sky's so clear
'Cause that means flying without any fear
And as she pushes the atmosphere
Here come the stars that she hold so dear

Lady in space
Lady in space
Lady in space
Yeah

From all around
Perspective is found
She might stay
Or fly fly fly away

Lady in space
Lady in space
Lady in space
Ooohh

I don't know how she flies so high
I don't know how she flies so high
I don't know how she flies so high

You have now reached your destination
Track Name: Shotgun
Shotgun
Shotgun
Shotgun ooh whoa
Shotgun

Don't leave me
Hold my hand
A century
Of War

I run
I run
I run ooh whoa
I run

Every feeling
Leaves me kneeling
Looking into
The face of war

Da da da da da da

My love
My love
My love ooh whoa
My love

Keeps me warm
In my lion heart
Here he come
The warrior

Open the door
Open the door
Open the door
Open the door

Da da da da da da
Track Name: When Lightning Strikes
She was smokin' on a broken holiday behind the bar
Back against the wall
She was waiting for another drop of rain to touch her face
Clouds will break and fall

Oh, her patterns are in the sky
Oh, she's risking all her life
Oh, thunder hits when lightning strikes

He was breathing to the beating of the club beside the hall
Phone against his face
He was wishing he could hear above the noise to what she said
Lines will drop and break

Oh, his patterns are in the sky
Oh, he's risking all his life
Oh, thunder hits when lightning strikes

Oh, thunder hits when lightning strikes
Track Name: Without Horizons
Without horizons there's a girl beside the road
And like a diamond she is rough around the soul

Go yeah Go

Time is standing so still around you now
Time is bending a curve around you now

Facing a mirror there's a man who goes to hell
And like an angel he is fighting with himself

Go yeah Go

Time is standing so still around you now
Time is bending a curve around you now

They say I'll get there when I wake up
But when I wake up I'll be dreaming
And in my dream I'll watch the time

Time is standing so still around you now
Time is bending a curve around you now
Track Name: Eureka
When we speak it's like a drop of gold
Echoing through ancient caves
Eureka!
Timberline

If there were no one to dream
Where would the wishes go
Color in the spaces I can't find the lines
Look for the traces hiding in the nine

The weight of the world is in hand!
