about

Seth Faergolzia Rochester, New York

Dufus were one of the most prolific, original, and influential bands to emerge from the chaotic mash of freak folk acoustic rock scene of New York City. Their sound is absolutely different; Seth Faergolzia's voice and songwriting style can be matched by no other. Dufus disbanded in 2010, but Seth Faergolzia continues the legacy with 23 Psaegz, Forest Creature and Heck Yup.

Track Name: Doubting Won't Do
DOUBTING WON'T DO
Get in a car
Go to the airport
Walk through security
Sit through a search
Get in a plane
Sit in a chair
Watch three movies
Get off in the morning

Go through customs
Pick up my suitcase
Get on a tram to a bus to a train
Meet the promoter
Go to the venue
Walk in the door
Get up on stage

Set up my gear
Check that it works
Talk to the soundman
Ask him to fix it
Remember his name
He's your best friend tonight
Get off the stage
Eat a quick dinner

Stand at the table
Sell a cd
Wait till the room's full then
Take the stage
Feelings of discomfort
Gotta keep 'em interested
Wish I could do flips
That might convince them

Doubting Won't Do
You must stay you, confident
They like when you rock
But you're tired
Play a quiet one tonight
Maybe they're bored
It's so hard to tell
So just play and maybe yell

Next thing you know
The show is over
Wipe off the sweat, breathe
Stand at the table
Wipe away some debt
Wipe away more sweat
Make some money
Then have it robbed
This is a difficult job

This is what it has become for me
Where is the fun in that?
Where is the art for that matter?
Does it matter? I don't know
Play a show
Don't play a show
Does it matter? Does it matter?

Doubting Won't Do
You must stay you, confident
They like when you rock
But you're tired
Play a quiet one tonight
Maybe they're bored
It's so hard to tell
So just play and maybe yell

Get up too early
Take a cab
Go to the airport
Check your bag
Walk through security
Get on a plane
Watch three movies
Get home in the morning

Doubting Won't Do
You must stay you, confident
They like when you rock
But you're tired
Play a quiet one tonight
Maybe they're bored
It's so hard to tell
So just play and maybe yell
Track Name: Rabbits In the Wild
RABBITS IN THE WILD
Five objects in my possession
What a progression
I am possessed
I'm loving the heaven
The oven inside of your dress
When our bodies make a bumpa
A tumble, a rumble from the middle of a chest
We go rolling down the gentlest slope
Oh my God, you're so dope

Every single day full of life
And I'm glad to spend it with you

Near me stay, alright, alright

Possession with a fervor
We can take it so much further
Like rabbits in the wild
I read you what you're thinking
The drink you sippin'
Like a rabbit in the wild
I feel all kinds of clever
Like it could last forever
I'm a rabbit in the wild
I read you what you thinking
And move smooth into your space
Like a rabbit in the wild

Picking up your signal
Like a monkey in the middle
Or a rabbit in the wild
I fiddle with your zipper
On the back undo the clip
A rabbit in the wild
Our fingers lace and cross
As we roll into the moss
We're rabbits in the wild
I'm thinking what you're thinking
We're th-thinking the same thing
I'm drinking what you're drinking
We're d-drinking the same thing
I'm thinking what you're thinking
We're th-thinking the same thing
Like a rabbit in the wild

Even if we try and hide our nature
It's absurd
We're just rabbits in the wild
Riveted by knowledge
of the way our bodies work together
Rabbits in the wild
We could mix a potion
And then raise it into motion
For the world we make a child
A rabbit in the wild
I read you what you thinking
We're th-thinking the same thing
I read you what you're drinking
We're d-drinking the same thing
I read you what you thinking
We're th-thinking the same thing
Like a rabbit in the wild
Track Name: If You If
IF YOU IF
Gotta do it if you if
No reason given
Go on living
Gotta do it if you if
Your please inside
Your want can tell you
Compel you into it
It the sitch
When you claimed
You wanted to change
But remained framed into it

Gotta do it if you if
No reason given
Go on living
Till we can run and break
Into the open air, the open air

Gotta do it if you if
Gotta do it if you wish
To break the mirror with your fist
On a brazen gallop through the open land
Raise your own scalp up in your open hand

Gotta do it if you if
Gotta do it if your myth
Is seasoned with the peppered fist
The way they gallop through the ocean land

Gotta do it if you if
No reason given
Go on living
Gotta do it if you if
Your please inside
Your want can tell you
Compel you into it
It the sitch
When you claimed
You wanted to change
But remained framed into it

Gotta do it if you if
No reason given
Go on living
Till we can run and break
Into the open air, the open air
Track Name: He Once Was
HE ONCE WAS
Friend, get down
I have a tale
Please, just do me this favor
Many moons
I've weaved the loom
Of he that was my savior
He once was my savior

Band of time
With the thunderous storms
Please don't leave me normal
Kick and punch
And scrape my mind
Of he that was my savior
He once was my savior

Ooo, then I fell ill
I tested you still
I swallowed your pill
Ooo, then I lay still

Friend, get down
I am concerned
How can I
Unlearn what I've learned?
Baby's eyes
That's what I need
I'm far from blind
But it's so hard to see
I feel the tide
Move in and inside of me

Friend, get down
Please, just once
Will I ask you this favor
Have you found
A single sound
For he that was my savior
He that was my savior
He once was…
Track Name: Anouk
When I wake up
To see your smiling face
For heaven's sake
You are my saving grace
I wouldn't doubt it
If you were sent from heaven above
You are a tutor
Teaching me the meaning of love.

I draw a picture
It is an image of you
I make a dinner
You are the taste of my food
When I leave you
Be sure you're on my mind
Couldn't forget you
You are the sun in my shine

When you're laughing
It makes me insane
When you're dancing
It makes me do the same
When I return
From being so far away
All my worries and sorrow
They just fade away
Track Name: My Will
MY WILL

I stand and gaze into my open eyes
They hide inside a mirror
I stand and stare into the masks
Of my body
Glancing in the portholes of my
Wildly confused mind, I find
I'm wise and love filled
Try to find my way
I'd stay but now

Now's my time to prove myself
Once and for all
I know I can
No mountain to tall

Where in this land is a man
who can stand and never fall?
Not me, I am, I am a human
But I'll at least do the best that I can
I can, I can, I swear it, I know it, I will
I will, My will

By will, the result is what the will shall will
We'll see, won't we?
You'll see me

I'm going to prove myself
Once and for all
I know I can
No mountain to tall

I am going to prove myself
For me, just me.
Track Name: Slave To Love
SLAVE TO LOVE
I miss you baby
Please don't go away forever
You drive me crazy sometimes
But letting you go has never crossed my mind

I really love though I rarely love true
I know that it saves me
I really love though I rarely love true
It enslaves me
A slave to love
I now serve you gladly
And sadly when you're gone

It's been so hard to understand kindness
I feel so bad for all the harm I've done
In hindsight, I rarely loved and I took from those I blinded
I don't know why I was a selfish spy
Who stole from those who simply wanted to be close

A slave to love I now serve you gladly
To make up for what I done
A slave to love, I now serve you gladly
And sadly when you're gone

I'll make it up to you for alt the hurt I've done
I swear I will I'll do all that I can
I'm new to this, but I can make it happen
Lost when you are gone

I really love though I rarely love true
I really love though I rarely love true
A slave to love I now serve you gladly
And sadly when you're gone…
Track Name: Thing In the Middle of the Room
There's this thing in the middle of the room and it's big. I want to move it, but it's big, and it's got so much attached. I attack myself for wishing it gone so I could move freely. Cuz I preach complete acceptance and believe resist is futile, but my mind it is fertile, and biodiverse is worthwhile. So the weeds are left to live with the plants which tend to give, and I'd kinda like to move it, but it's big so I'll try to shift it, see if the middle of the room can somehow get bigger, now no object in its space, but this place is in my mind, and my mind is what I make it, and the big thing in the middle's just a puddle made by thinking I am the thing king or at least a thing king.

The things I think are making what I feel and how I take it. The things I think are making what I feel and how I take it. How my take on things affects the way I see them. It is now a lake… aynd when my take is on the learning, not the wrong thing, not as critic, not to hold it… how the future unfolds right from that, right from this very moment… and how the thoughts you think link with time and make a future. How that future stinks or shines right in line with your own truth.
Track Name: All My Famous Friends
Searching, finding
Loving, giving without minding
Living, breathing
Loving blindly, searching for a freeway.

Show me the way home
Finding a home, a life I will never know
Wishing, pining
Working, grinding for a life I will never know

For me the road is a hard climb
Filled with rocks and boulders and white lies
A life I'll never know

Feel so lost and lonely in my mind
A life I'll never know

All my famous friends are living their lives to the end
A life I'll never know

Fishing, got my hook in
Pull tight, reel in
Got one, it's too small
A throwback from long ago

All my famous friends are climbing and climbing in
A life I'll never know

I'd like to appreciate that when I'm dying
A life I have never needed
No life I will ever need
Just a life I have never known

My life is right
A life I live like a life I have always needed
That I will never not know
It's the only life I can know
So better make it good

All my famous friends are right here with me until the end
A life I'll never know

Fields of hearts and roses in my mind
The real of rock imposes a hard climb
A life I'll never know…
Track Name: Landscape Passing
LANDSCAPE PASSING
Set it down for a spell
Who can tell in a wave of crashing
Speed it up by slowing down
Look around at the landscape passing

In my days I felt my gaze
On the right and the wrong inside of me
You held me tight on my worst days
How can I doubt in you?
There's nothing to say

Now I hear the whisper of the trees

Silence is not easy.
Track Name: Tree In the Sky
Feel I'm finally ready, come and get me
For the time of my life, come and get me
I am waiting for the dream to take me
Tree in the sky, come and pick me up

Plant an idea like a seed
On a rock in the sky with nothing to feed
Sky's the limit they'd have you believe
Tree in the sky is coming for me

In the evening, heat lightening gathers to you
Our eyes collide with light
There's a mystical picture
Afraid if I move, this mirage will fade into the night

People look at me like I am going crazy
Maybe I am, but this beauty I see
There's no limit to the things you can see
Tree in the sky, Imagination free

Tree in the sky, why don't you come and get me.
