about

Stelth Ulvang Denver, Colorado

He never slows down
The Lumineers currently drag multi-instrumentalist, and barefoot-wanderer, Stelth Ulvang, from town to town; primarily as their piano player- but his talents as a songwriter and performer extend in his solo work as well
Live, Stelth provides an unpredictable juggling act of instruments, styles, performers, and stories, with the same brush of bluish grey of a late Colorado March

Track Name: Go Girl
Stammer in all your letters first before you go and lick a stamp and send away to me
Tell me all your insecurities, as if I'm here, and my mind set's you free, as if it does
Check your bank, for subtleties, you don't own these things make believe you live a long term lease, as if you do,
Make a larger map from your hotel to where I sleep, I never sleep around, at least that's what I say I do to you and you and

You've been finding out that I'm not just like you had thought

And who am I to say you Go Girl
and who am I to believe theres nothing wrong
I am a snake I am a serpent with good intentions
but it's all the same to be/me, a man like me.

Tuck Away your camouflage you've never hunted anyway
and anyway you're green enough to me
Fields are burning constantly and everywhere I look I'm seeing red
and I'm ready not to be
Tuck away all your lies, white and otherwise, black em out, cross em out,
the grey Gradient between
Pulling weeds til the sun goes down how long will /should I stay,
will all thats golden turn to gray or

you've been finding out that I'm not just like you had thought

And who Am I to say you go girl
who am I to believe theres nothing wrong
I am a snake I am a serpent with good intentions
but it's all the same to be/ me a man like me
Track Name: A List of Things (Ooh Baby)
Made a list to read to you
crumpled up and seen right through
your legs, a laugh, a mole, or molars too,
I know you , you knew

That's the point we get the blues
some aren't born at all some born to lose
We find we lie through teeth and call a truce
and that's how we can choose

So can I call you twice today
like a bill collector you refuse to pay
and if it rings a while it makes us say
that I've been Bad to you

And if I break, may I make different mistakes
than you, not without you yah
you baby, ooh baby , you baby ooh baby you
ooh baby you baby ooh baby you baby you
you baby you baby ooh baby ooh baby you

Made a list of the things that take
all my attention to the ones that you gave
along the lines of older songs that I crave
and just, to ignore you

and there it sat such a simple truth
those blinding bats in caves of blues
a girl with wronger longer ways/legs than moves
sat there inside of you

So when I called you twice today
that familiar click that you played away (and weigh)
my numbers there I can always wait
and I'll be there for you

and if I break, may I make different mistakes
than you not without you

ooh baby, ooh baby , you baby ooh baby you
ooh baby you baby ooh baby you baby you
you baby you baby ooh baby ooh baby you
ooh baby you baby oh baby (oh) baby you.
Track Name: Tribute to Move
Oh I gotta follow you know I gotta followin case
I like to live a listen like to live a lesson in taste
why you think we'd move there and why you think we'd make it in LA (hey).
no matter you're a hammer break it with me gonna shatter anyway

and no it isn't trouble we can crumble from our bones like it's our fate
like a dog who never comes home even though he still can smell it if he stayed
yah you see it clearly with a dreamy couple reasons in this place (hey)
no matter you're a hammer break it with me gonna shatter anyway
anyway anyway-
and all that I find I find about you
and all that I write I'm right about you too
and I'm damn near sure it's all I can do
so a tribute to a lover that I am too into-
I'm too helpless to,
make that move that move that move

So spackle up a ceiling with blue and yellow paint upon the walls
we used to keep our wits by scribbling words of wisdom in the stalls
and where we gonna end up and where we gonna shake it when we fall away
it's no matter you're a hammer break it with me doesn't matter anyway
anyway anyway-
and all that I find I find about you
and all that I write I'm right about you too
and I'm damn near sure it's all I can do
so a tribute to a lover that I am too into-
I'm too helpless to,
make that move that move that move
Track Name: Through Honey feat. Jon Shaban
We send our letters let us sign away for better things petition these we hope to say the things they'll never read
its strange the pacifists, that claim to all be activists , they're packing up their picket signs to picnic in the park
And politicians well they power through their palaces the fallacy of phalluses we dont bite we only bark-
it is a helplessness it is a hell of worthlessness that 80 men can't work with us just leave us in the dark

It's Like Running, Through Honey.
(Jon)
We'll cut our nose to spite our face, we're running in human race, the crazy ones have set the pace and we're coming second last
We haven't heard the starting gun, the signal that we need to run. As shots are being fired, we're so blissfully surpassed
The weakest of the weak will all be dead within a week and while their bodies all get buried someone smiles from ear to ear.
So all aboard the gravy train, it'll show you to your grave again and then gradually you'll grow into the clothes you want to wear

It's Like Running, Through Honey.
(Jon)
like climbing up a mountain while your shoes are made of lead
or trying to tread water while your stillfully dressed
or walking round in circles when theres somewhere you should be
the man who breaks the circle with a different path that set's you free

(I dont tend to use these inhibitions anymore
I crumble down, i write it off, i fall apart
how to wake myself to stepping out there anymore
I am a cloud, what a swamp , I'm a marsh)

I've seen the sun retreat behind the sea a thousand times and as we burn away our eyes we gaze into the west.
The blind leading the blind might mean the blind will fall behind but in the night the blind will prosper and then swell beyond the rest
We'll hold the corners of our flags and fold them into younger hands and maybe then they'll understand the fight we fight.
And when the sun will rise at least, our eyes adjust, the more we'll see We'll take back all the ground wre lost, head east into the night-

It's Like Running, Through Honey.
Track Name: Minnesota
He had a stone as a demeanor and he was meaner till he met her
A sandpapered face that would make your skin twist and crawl
Put it all back together and you try to act a human
Hard to say that he ever cared at all

He thought of lona walkin, in a storm just like a tundra
He saw her kickin snow from her boots standin black and tall
I guess he only loved her when nothing could be colder
I guess that he never cared at all

Behold the fear
We hold a freedom
He loved a mirror
He told her to leave him

She was a spitfire image of her mother when shes crying.
Theres a funny think about the way a face that finally falls
Like a slapstick man in a charcoal grey confusion
I wonder if he saw it i wonder if he ever cared at all

Pull a body from the rubble from a hot typhoon below us
A salty wind that'll make the ocean turn a churning squall
Like a shot to the gut first a hit and then its over

And cause we never felt it anyway we never cared at all

Cause one lost love is a knot inside
Another
One lost one is a knot inside it all
And im a lost one thinking of how i could nit be uncovered
and though i wondered
But i never did it anyway i guess i never really cared at all
