about

Galapaghost Austin, Texas

Hey there, I'm Casey and I write, produce and record everything myself. Often with the help of my good friend Federico. I have no label, manager or band so worked extremely hard to produce these albums so I really hope you enjoy them!

All of my albums are also available for free streaming on Soundcloud, Youtube and Spotify. You can also purchase all my albums on Bandcamp, Amazon, iTunes, etc.

Track Name: Pulse
Vacant in tone
Bodies are thrown
This endless fear
They tried to atone
Their stories are told
This endless tear

But we'll hear it all again
We'll feel it all again
Maybe all they needed was a friend
But we'll hear it all again
We'll feel it all again
The cycle never ends

It started when you were young
You thought it looked like fun
And all the big boys knew how to shoot a gun
And they said aim at what you hate
And carry that weight
Cause god is on your side

So you kill 'em all again
You kill 'em all again
And everything you wanted was pretend
But you kill 'em all again
You kill 'em all again
All the brilliant minds of mankind

And maybe all the news will start to change
And global warming will be the only scare today
But I know that it will probly always be this way

And we'll hear it all again
We'll feel it all again
Maybe all they needed was a friend
And we'll hear it all again
We'll feel it all again
The cycle never ends
Track Name: Jim Beam
In the hall you fall
Crippled on the concrete
Where our souls meet
Like a vegetable that hasn't quite been fried
Uneven on both sides
But we'll both see eye to eye later tonight

Cause you'll always be warm with me
You'll always be warm with me
You'll always be warm with me
Yeah you'll always be warm with me
You'll always be warm with me
You'll always be everything I need
Jim Beam


I'm in your house
And it feels like a place
I can't really describe
Like an ocean in the sky
At the edge of the earth
In a place where lovers learn
To be abused cause it's really just Detroit
In a cold and abandoned church in the wintertime
Where our hearts lie
And nothing feels right
Like driving on the opposite side

Oh then you tell me
That I've lost myself again
Oh I've lost myself again
I can't even remember when

You'll always be warm with me
Track Name: Analog Wasteland
Is this real life?
Cause I don't feel a part of it
And the image on your screen
Is creating a force field between you and me
And I wish that I could be your digital fantasy

But I am just a man
Living in his analog wasteland alone

Can you look at me when I speak?
Or are you lost in the abyss again?
My friend well I guess this is the beginning of the end

So should I bury you with your iphone?
Or should I shove it up your asshole?
So it will be always a part of you
Track Name: Bleed
So when you come I will be waiting she said
To place this blame upon you
And I'll have no regrets of breaking your heart
And of taking all that was meant for greatness from you

As he gets on by
He knows he's still hooked on her high

And there used to be a time when
Their hearts and their souls sang together as one whole
But her lies and whispers pierced through his armored inscriptions
And left him crushed and exposed

As he gets on by
He knows he's still hooked on her high

And he says this is not real and I cannot be free
Let me be free
Cause his old wounds are ripped right through and he's on his way
He's on his way

I can't let you go 'til I know that you have felt the same
And I will make you feel my pain
Bleed with me now

Another day for human losses sold
Another day for him to go it alone
But his scarred skies are bound to fall
And his dark nights will soon turn to warm sun

As he gets on by
He knows he's still hooked on her high

And he says this is not real and I cannot be free
Let me be free
Cause his old wounds are ripped right through and he's on his way
He's on his way

I can't let you go 'til I know that you have felt the same
And I will make you feel my pain
Bleed with me now
Track Name: The American Dream (One Nightmare At A Time)
I'm flying home
And I can't believe it
The moment's here
Time to receive it
Two years older
And I should know better
But the idiots just won't surrender

Why would you lie?
Why would you lie?
That at 29 I would be wise
And why would you say?
Why would you say?
That I wouldn't make the same mistakes
Oh, well of course we did
Cause we just don't give a shit
It's just entertainment
And we're all just slaves to it
Cause I just don't feel the culture here
Have I had a change of heart?
Have I had a change of heart?
Cause I'm getting tired
So fucking tired
Of hearing all about his bullshit
While the whole world just laughs at it

If it could be true
I'd give to you
The America you long for
But all these painful lies
He says with pride
Screaming America

America don't love you!
America don't love you!
Track Name: Woke Up On The Wrong Side Of The Earth Today
Well I've been wandering around
Just seeing what I could get my heart into
Well I've worked ten different jobs
So wherever this train stops
I'll get off

Should I do it for you?
Should I do it for me?
What if I don't really succeed?
I know that life isn't long
And I should just do what I want

But I don't wanna end up
Forty years old
With nothing to show
But all the dues I have paid
All the progress I've made
I can't let go

Should I do it for you?
Should I do it for me?
What if I don't achieve what I need?
I keep on changing my mind
Endlessly searching for what else I'd like
To do with my life

So I'll sing you this song
Cause I know if won't be long
Before I must
Get a good job
One that I can always rely on

Should I do it for you?
Should I do it for me?
What if my dream is only a dream?
I wish I could turn it off
But I'm afraid that then I'll just be lost
Track Name: Saudade (Interstate Death Song)
You're looking towards the ocean and you've gotta go
But you know the wind is starting to blow
But you take it out anyway and you just hope
None of it ends up in your mouth

And I think I'll die
When my laugh subsides
And I'll think of you
When I can't find a bathroom

Went into a deli and met namaste
I thought that was the coolest name
But then my friend fell on the street and he said to me
Casey do you know what that means?

And the night began
In a foreign land
Pick my soul up and
Give it all you can

I'm sitting here waiting for you to decide
Is this car willing to fly?
I'm driving down the interstate and wondering why
Is this my time to die?

And the time moves slow
Will my body know?
When it's time to go
Have I loved enough?
Track Name: Holy Moly
The holy houses on the beach
The surf wax and the bare feet
Gin and juice was playing loud
Along with all my favorite childhood songs
The dart it flew
The aim was true
When I laid my eyes upon you

But holy shit
I ruined it
Broke out in hives
And I think I spit
On your face
While I was saying something lame
Like I know everything
But I don't know anything
I use too much toilet paper
And too much toothpaste

Wandering around this crummy town
It's a constant reminder of all my doubts
Go get drunk at the local bar
Get thrown out for stripping down
And thinking I'm a prophet in my hometown
Just a bumbling fool
With nothing but drool

But holy fuck
Just my luck
My bike broke down with my face in the ground
But I couldn't feel any pain at all
Well thank god for alcohol
And I thought that if I had a family
I wouldn't feel the urgency
To just get up and leave
And disappear completely
And I guess that life's a mess
But I never was good at cleaning
I always had a maid for that
Track Name: Obidos
The end the end the end of everything cruel and cold
The falling dust
The green green grass
The childhood dream in the hearts of man

So you run you run you run towards everything cruel and cold
You majesty I'm on my knees
Give me back the love we had
Track Name: Pinerolo
Pinerolo I'm going solo
Played my first show so long ago

A toast to the moment that
I said I would not look back
And a toast to the heavens for
Bringing me around this town

Pinerolo how I love you so
Cause you've brought me
Everything I have and need
Pizza, coffee, wine and gnocchi
But mostly Elisa and her family

A toast to the moment that
I said I would not look back
And a toast to the heavens for
Bringing me around
And a toast to the moment that
We said we would not look back
And a toast to the heavens for
Bringing you around this town
