about

The Lion and the Lamb was recorded in the stuffy, cluttered garage turned band room at Josh's home in Abbotsford, B.C. The Ep was co-produced with Andrew Judah and provided a platform for Josh and Andrew to combine their interests in music production and studio effects to best highlight the character of each song. The album features an interplay between organic and synthetic sound design. The ambiance and mood of each song seeks to translate the lyrical character imbedded in Josh's songwriting.

Joshua Clark Kelowna, British Columbia

Joshua Clark hails from the mountainous valleys of B.C.'s lower mainland. This expansive landscape is reflected in his ambient & ethereal indie folk songs. Joshua's haunting lyrics are carried by a sensitive and surreal vocal style. His music marries organic textures with sound manipulation and design, resulting in songs that are marked by honest and introspective themes. ... more

Track Name: Folk Song
I wish you were here
And not far away
Are you coming back ever again?
When I got close
You turned and ran
Are you dying alone as fast as you can?

Oh my father don't chastise me
For what I've done
Oh my father don't baptise me
In a lake of fire
Oh my father don't let me be
All by myself
Oh my father don't leave me please
I need you now
I need you now

I should've known
You'd fall asleep
And leave me awake with no company
You try to escape
Into a dream
Like you just can't stand reality

Well that's it now
Did I hear you say?

Oh my father don't chastise me
For what I've done
Oh my father don't baptise me
In a lake of fire
Oh my father don't let me be
All by myself
Oh my father don't leave me please
I need you now
I need you now
I need you now

You left me here
Just me and my pain
But I know someday I'll try it again
Track Name: Hula Hoop
Bound by my love for you
A ring around your finger
Don't let go
Your love keeps me moving
And the pattern keeps repeating
But it don't get old

Hula Hula Hula Hula Hoop
My whole world is spinning around you

Just like 40 years in the desert
Searching for the promise land
I circle you
And when the day turns to night
I'll be the moon that gives you light
As I orbit you

Hula Hula Hula Hula Hoop
My whole world is spinning around you
Hula Hula Hula Hula Hoop
My whole world is spinning around you

Around and around I go now
Around and around I go
So take my hand as we go now
So take my hand as we go go go

Hula Hula Hula Hula Hoop
My whole world is spinning around you
My whole world is spinning around you
My whole world is spinning around you
Track Name: I Won't End Up Alone
Take a look and see
That it's make believe
This fear's a lie
Get up on your feet
Get out your seat
Kiss these thoughts goodbye

I won't end up alone

I don't want to be
What I tend to see
What I try to fight
Meaningless to me
If it's all a dream
If I live to die
Take these fears from me
And then you'll see
That I'll be alright
Take these fears from me
And then you'll see
That I'll be alright

I won't end up alone

Take these fears from me
And then you'll see
That I'll be just fine

I won't end up alone
Track Name: Judas
I get the feeling
That something is wrong
Tonight I'm confronted
With the wounds of a friend
Did you know
I care about you
And the trouble that you're in?
But you want to hurt me
And still here I am

They will betray you
Judas is near
And he has no fear of God
I will remain here
In spite of my fear
Your will, not mine
Be done

Can we talk with understanding?
Let my truth resound
Can you hear
I'm crying out to you?
Let me loose your bounds
Can't you see
I care about you
And the trouble that you're in?
Return to me and I'll restore you
I love you my friend

They will betray you
Judas is near
And he has no fear of God
I will remain here
In spite of my fear
Your will, not mine
Be done
Track Name: Rachel
You won't leave me alone
Real love is different then this
I can't push hard enough
To get you out of my head

I'm a guy
And I'll just get tired of you

Don't ever think
You're just a victim here
You'd lie to us both
I'm just more honest then you

I'm a guy
And I'll just get tired of you
I'll just get tired of you

You won't leave me alone
Real love is different
Track Name: Sunrise In The City
Sunrise in the city
And the children on the corner
They reflect the glory of the lord
In their beaming eyes
But we say
"Stop your laughing and
Stop being children
Stop playing games
The real world's about
Not living for today"

So they say
"Please pray for me
And my sister you see
Dad shoved us in the corner
To be fathered by tv"

Sunrise in the city
And those kids with their boredom
They reflect broken promises
And lifetimes of neglect
Cause we say
"Stop your laughing and
Stop being children
Stop playing games
The real world's about
Not living for today"

So I say
"Please pray for me
Or better yet for my tv
That it grows arms and says
'I love you'
While it rocks my kids to sleep"
