about

Cloud Person started as a moniker that Pete Jordan used for lofi demo recordings.
After the demise of his previous rock band, Pete decided to rerecord some of the demos and release them as an EP with no game plan in mind. Just for the hell of it.
He enlisted the services of Betsy Johnson(Violin) and Cameron Arneson(Bass), both of whom he ended up starting Cloud Person the band with, along with Matt Zook(Clarinet) and Justin Neff(Native American Flute) for finishing touches to the mostly recorded EP and released it as 'Anchors in the Sun' in March of last 2012.

Track Name: Solomon
You can’t account for everything that you imagine
All your wildest dreams won’t hazard a guess
He’ll come along to you with his open mouth
Spouting phrases of magical wonders
He’ll say “Behold me in my splendor,
I am come to take you home.”

But I do fine without the help of the blind
Who am I to say that you can’t walk the

Line is drawn in sand on paper
Language has become a jailor
They’re giving prizes for the biggest bounty
Wives and gold and all you fancy
But in the end those very things you wanted
They will turn your heart away

And I do fine without the help of the blind
Who am I to say that you can’t walk the line
I tried, but found that compromise
Won’t keep me from the open arms of light
Track Name: Braiding Ages
Hungry hogs
On the back of every nation try to tell them
You last a while, fall then give the new
Blood a try at running things to the ground

You’re wide awake
Like the morning it all changed
You come back to me when I call you
It’s not the right reason to break down

And walking away from you was the
Best thing that I ever had to do
In my life or dreams, your face is
One in a million, can you imagine
How small that that is

Hallowed halls
We come here for answers
I used to get them when I prayed
Now it’s raining reason
Drenching my mind with logic and history

I can’t believe that we hold on so long
Braiding Ages into Myths
So when we’re gone, Our lives live on
Through monuments tall and strong
We raise them to the sky
Anchors in the sun
Track Name: Hour Is Late
The hour is late
Where have you been tonight
Don’t lie this time
You can’t hide all the weird shit that you’re doing
The kids already know
Yeah they know

I guess I fucked it up again
‘cause you don’t want me around
You’re breathing fire on the ground
It’s a lonely mountaintop when you
Disappear a lot, I know
It’s just a matter of time

The reasons why it breaks sometimes are beyond me
And feeling like a chasm’s opening
At times I try at times I feel evasive

I guess I fucked it up again
‘cause you don’t want me around
You’re breathing fire on the ground
It’s a lonely mountaintop when you
Disappear a lot, I know
It’s just a matter of time

In front of God and all our friends
Said we’d see it to the end
Said we’d see it to the end
Track Name: Doubting All the Time
For every time you say, “I’m sorry, dear”
I’ll make you pay with feelings you never knew were in you
Let’s elevate our minds ‘til this thing is all we need
A face full of allergies can drive you

In today shutting the outside away
In today shutting the outside away
Separate the line between love and hate

Gone, gone, gone are the days of young
When I could relate to anything that turns you
I decided a long time ago
It’s not a necessity to explain to

Those who were doubting all the time
Track Name: Bad Advice
Don’t be afraid to care
Press your eyes and find emotion underneath your pillow
Come clean for the first time in your life
I want you here beside me

Brazen is the voice
That declares the defeat of young ambition
They’ll tell you that it’s good advice
A steady job for all your life
I want you here beside me

Our hearts can rearrange
Our sympathies and dispositions
Your brain is giving bad advice
Break all the bonds that keep you from me
I need you here beside me

You are not alone
When the world shows the worst it has to offer
I’ll carry you for all my life
I want you here beside me
Break all the bonds that keep you from me
I need you here beside me
